One of the defining moments of my own personal geekdom was discovering Robotech the summer before my freshman year of high school. The series had everything: grand, multi-generational space opera storylines, immense space battles, great characters and, of course, starfighters that turned into battle-mechs.
For years I've had a Jetfire transformer sitting in guardian mode on my desk (Jetfire being a clear knockoff of the veritech) but I've often wanted to upgrade to a full VF model. Now I can -- Robotech.com's offering three new Veritech fighter models on pre-order:
Each retails for $29.99. Based on the previews I'm guessing they can switch between humanoid battlemech mode and guardian mode, but not jet mode (which I'm fine with, since the mech modes are the ones I like best).
