    Macross Sitajiki (pencilboard)

    That's just it....when produced they were not intended for "over here"....thus your confusion on their practicality These were meant for grade school kids....they were meant to be mass consumables not cherished treasures....

    Macross/Animation Cel Collection Thread

    The nude one they are selling was originally on YJA a few years ago....it's basically just a gag cel, a novelty....no one would pay that much for it.....also it is not the best one you could get from the sequence... The cel from the shower sequence you'd want would be something like this....

    Pretty much this style....not the best Mikimoto era, not the worst...

    Is it a repaint of the Sylvie fig minus the boobies? Or a brand new sculpt? Either way it is wrong. Nexx has a completely different helmet...or was this helmet specific to when he flew the Metal Siren?

    Those M7 cels hardly ever get much more than 100USD bids...they had a very minimal effect on the final auction price....that was all Minmay! As for Asylum Anime....seems they are going the UTH and other recent bunghole scalper route, in terms of raiding YJA and selling for double...except maybe they are skipping the ebay middleman.

    Hey Maximus... .the Minmay version in M7 is actually a Mikimoto "version"...he was the lead charater designer for M7...and all other M7 spin-offs.....my remark was basically alluding to the possibility that Mikimoto himself may have gotten involved in that specific sequence you referenced from M7 Ep11.....it would certainly explain the high final winning bid....although I am not particularly fond of that era of character design from the ever changing "Mikimoto-style", it certainly would have been nice to have owned it at say 500USD...especially since it also came with the very nice genga. There is no way the other two cels in that "lot" had anything but a minimal effect on the final auction price. That was all Minmay's doing!

    Wow.....nice Minmay cel...but 95,000 JPY nice? Maybe it was drawn by Mikimoto? https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/339814821
  14. Not a fan.....but I do like the Pokemon slogan! Best marketing slogan ever! Do Pokemons talk in the cartoon? So will we now get Pokemon references in Deadpool movies? Didn't see DP2 so maybe that already happened?

    It was not a Macross cel....so even more reason not to be sore over it! Keep trying....some day you may get one by accident.

    Have any of you quit collecting?

    The new Macross series stuff interests me less with each release....at some point I can see myself opting out of adding any more new VF type toys....however, I do not think I'll ever stop collecting vintage odds and ends as they come up I'll probably also keep buying at least one of every new generation of revised VF-1 for a while...still may have 2-3 more in my lifetime....

    That episode is still not as good as the one where Hikaru goes ape-sheit on a squadron of Zentradi Regults on a Zentran motorbike while in Battroid mode.....one word....EPIC...

    Hi-Metal R

    Yes. Nothing has been cancelled. I have also cancelled some orders in the past. I guess it all depends on the amount of purchases vs cancellations. At this point, I mainly just use them for web exclusives I cannot source elsewhere. They have not been my go-to retailer for some time. I usually go with HLJ or AE due to their extended "storage" policies and customer service.

    Forgot about the payment due for the VF-2SS Nexx...had 2 PO's at NY....asked if I could still pay for them, they told me to "open a ticket"... I had a third at AmiAmi, so I guess maybe 1 will have to do.....I went ahead and opened the ticket to see what they say....I'm guessing they may not want to pass up the opportunity to jack up the price on both of them considering all of the VF-31A's they have had to sell in the past year at below current market prices.....Never Surrender Macross World!!! I will buy them from NY if "mine" get listed on their site at the original PO price...otherwise, they can keep them!
