Yamato III EDF model catalog

Despite its interesting new collection of mecha designs, Yamato III received little attention in the form of model kits from Bandai, especially on the EDF side with only a mini-kit of the Cosmo Hound. Instead, Bandai’s Popy division rolled out a variety of toy Yamatos in anticipation of a year-long TV run that was soon cut in half due to lower-than-expected ratings. Understandably, that had an instant chilling effect on further merchandising.

When the garage kit era arrived, skilled fans more than made up for Bandai’s hesitation, especially in their attention to the beloved Arizona. Here is the entire catalog for Yamato III (so far).
