VF-19S Battroid Mode (Alternate)

Variant VF-19S Excalibur "Alternate"

Notes

Debut: Macross 7, Episode 20
Description: Found within the pages of published material for the Macross 7 series is the odd piece of alternative line art, such as those drawn for the VF-19S Excalibur. This alternate drawing depicts a similar design for the VF-19S but with more pronounced dramatic proportions and simplified details that differ from those found in the more common line art. Some speculation suggests this alternate art was meant to be used by the Macross 7 animators because it is easier to draw. The Macross Chronicle published the more common VF-19S Excalibur line art for the official profile, so it's unclear what status (if any) has been assigned to this drawing. For fans who wish to enjoy a different look at a familiar valkyrie, this webpage features the VF-19S Excalibur from the book This Is Animation Series Macross 7 Animation Materials.
