Valkyrie is the main character from the game series Legend of the Valkyrie. Let’s see how she looks in model form!

The cover art would look right at home next to anyone’s 1980s video game collection. As it should!

After a brief introduction to the game, you’ll get to see some nice poses and a handy guide on how to get the water slide eyes on.

From the plate layout, and lots of white space, it doesn’t look like too complicated a build.

Here are the highlights before the plates in alphabetical order. The faces are looking pretty sharp overall.

Some final thoughts. As a new kit from Kotobukiya, the overall quality seems quite promising based on the last few action figure type kits. The colors may be a little washed out, but let’s see how it looks all together, and what posing options are there. It’ll also be interesting to see if there’s a rhyme or reason for the unused parts. Let’s find out in Part 2! Thanks for checking this out.
