  1. It really isn't AI, it's just a bunch of upscale and filtering scripts. It really does a disservice to the animation. The original film scan has all the detail you're gonna get out of it. Any amount of filtering you're either removing detail or pulling it out of your ass, both of which are detrimental to the look.

  3. The text does say 2021, so assuming the calendar doesn't just roll back to start of 2020 as the clock hits midnight, shouldn't be too far away. I was honestly contemplating collecting reference for a scratchbuild the past few months. Usually these announcements come AFTER you start a project just to spite you.

  5. Not sure if this is the best thread for this question, but here goes the necromancy. Does anyone have a comparison good top-down between the Club-M and the Hasegawa kits? The reason I ask is that in playing around with the various lineart I discovered that the Hasegawa manual drawings (and presumably the kit) are quite a bit wider than the lineart in the THIS IS ANIMATION SPECIAL Macross Plus and YF-19 Master File books. Is the Club-M kit narrower than the Hasegawa one and more in-line with the older lineart? What I mean: Hasegawa lineart overlayed on top of the THIS IS A
  6. After doing some more digging and finding the source of the chart which is this page http://www.macross2.net/m3/macrosstechman/tech-zentradiheight.html What's the specific source for this?
  7. Is there a solid primary source for Miria's height? There's 885cm in a wiki, 8.55m in a zentradi height chart floating online, and Macross Chronicle 05 has a vague height chart that look to put her closer to 7.5m. Which of these has the most to back it up?
  8. New kit is another VF-11D recolor On the bright side the Macross Zero Tomcat and Mig-29 are coming back!
  9. amazon.ca has always been a horrible disappointment and only a fraction as useful as either .com or .co.jp If you're in Canada definitely check your local dollar stores for this stuff instead.
  10. Nothing new for October but a whole bunch of reissues: Kaname VF-31F http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/65850/ VF-1 Battroic http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/10-2/ VF-1S/A Strike/Super Gerwalk http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/26/ VF-22S http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/65765/
  11. Don't know about the others, but Hikaru figure came with FIVE whole pairs of eyes and eyebrows. They do seem to expect people to need the extras.
  12. It's definitely a cultural thing. Most people in the west first experienced DYRL the same was as the TV series - on a tiny screen horribly ruined by analog video. Meanwhile in Japan with the theatrical release it was more like an event. A lot of anime movies were like that even back then with people lining up around corners, premiers with staff and cast present, etc. There's lots of photos from the premiers of the original Gundam Trilogy, Ideon movies, Farewell Yamato, etc with just crowds and crowds of people showing up to theaters after the TV shows built the hype. These were cultural m
