As previously announced, two Macross-themed talk/stage shows were streamed live through Nico Nico on Sunday, courtesy of Max Factory and the Good Smile Company to promote the new Macross 30 game, some Nendroid figures and a Sheryl statue, featuring the Macross newcomer, Haruka Chisuga and friends.

Banpresto announced the follow up to their “Macross Diva Collection” to be released o the third week of March 2013. The first of the Series was released earlier in September. A set that included Minmay, Ranka and Sheryl. The follow up set will include the two frontier divas accompanied by their Macross 7 rocker counterpart Mylene!
As some of you may already know, the new Universal Bunny Sheryl AKA “Black Rabbit” figure from Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa was made available for preorder yesterday, July 2, 2012. The figure stands at approx. 17cm tall. The figure is scheduled for release later this October.
Scooped a few days back by forum user CF18, and later followed up on with further pics by Reivaj and nanoplasm, Banpresto has revealed the latest additions to their Macross figure lineup. These are ‘prize figures’ for UFO catchers (commonly found in most game centers in Japan).
The first of these are a new 3-figure set in the ‘Chibi Kyun Chara’ lineup – ‘ Macross 30th Anniversary Songstress Collection.’
Next up are nurse versions of Sheryl and Ranka.
Finally, in a crossover that no-one imagined, a Sheryl in Basara-cosplay figure! Here’s hoping that this is only the first of several such figures because its looking great!
Being Prize Figures, these technically cannot be sold, but most good online figure stores tend to get a carton or two so they shouldn’t be too hard to get for anyone who is interested.
