It will be featuring a 1/1-scale model of VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie’s Cockpit and Arms due to the venue’s height Restriction, namely the ceiling… This holds true for a planned event at Nagoya, however… 

The promised full 1/1-scale model VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie in GERWALK mode will be on displayed at a similar event in Osaka.

Hopefully like the one above which was seen at the Macross Concert on PS HOME software platform, held last year.

Cosplay will be allowed at the exhibition, but there will be a 500-yen (about US$6) fee to use the provided changing room.Lots of commemorative goods to be available for purchase at the event. (I wish I could be there!!)
