  1. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I'm waiting on Khan and the Captain's chair. I can't wait to order those.
  2. Macross/Animation Cel Collection Thread

    Of course I did. I passed on getting one of UrbanTreasureHunter's cels. Another Rook one. I decided to get the VF-31C, some other stuff, and wait for the Mospeada items next year. But UrbanTreasureHunter has yet to get a cel that I really want. I did meet another collector that purchased from UrbanTreasureHunter that's why I know some stuff about their auctions. And triple is nothing compared to what that Viviere Rook cel is priced at. And they don't seem open to offers going by their auction setup. But perhaps I will ask and see. The price is so insulting to start that I doubt they will offer down to $100 which is where it should be maximum.
  3. Prime 1 Studio Non-Scale VF-1

    I don't know why these turned out so so and the other Japanese anime properties from Prime 1 like Evangelion and Guyver turned out really good. I hope the delay on Ghost in the Shell means they are making something that we haven't seen before.
  4. Macross/Animation Cel Collection Thread

    I searched my files for that Rook cel and this Viviere seller on ebay is in the same league as UrbanTreasureHunter if not worse. I noted on the file name that the same, if not similar, Rook cel sold for 4400 Yen. Today that's basically $40. So Viviere marked this up by $330! Give me a break. This guy is flipper central. At least UrbanTreasureHunter puts his cels on sale for 25% off and even goes lower via offers. Add in Viviere's negative feedback and other instances that I see when going over their feedback that's more than a year old. And you have a seller I won't deal with unless they get something really good.
  5. Retro Gaming

    Both original Dracula X and Symphony of the Night. And a good soundtrack mode but you have to find the tracks in the games. There are a few I'm still trying to get since you have to use gameplay tricks.

    And I'm still waiting for a good side picture with the landing gear down. But we'll know soon enough.
  7. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    I saw this on a Sideshow Collectibles collector profile today. They need to do this with some of the bots that I like.
  8. Retro Gaming

    I still own the TurboDuo Dracula X. I think it's the best Castlevania game. It was one of those $100 import games from back in the 90s. Gradius I think II was another. And there might have been one more Konami game that I can't remember. I probably didn't get that one though. I did play the recent PSP update but I still think the original is better. And I hated the twist of the remake. I was tempted to toss my PSP because of that.
  9. Macross/Animation Cel Collection Thread

    Any of you guys deal with Viviere on ebay before? They have this Rook cel up for $370. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Anime-Macross-Robotech-New-Generation-cel-6/332451509327?hash=item4d67a7744f:g:kSgAAOSwl9RaDRG2 I'm sure I've seen this scene before perhaps once or twice but I need to search my files. They might be another flipper. They have a few Macross cels and other anime items up as well. One negative feedback from a buyer says they were "deceived" so I'm not jumping to deal with them.

    I guess that image means we are getting a red version. At least I might get this and a small version of Rook's cyclone.
  11. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    Someone around here wanted that version. It's way too expensive and I think missing landing gear. It might be delicate too. There were a bunch of posts about it. But you would think with the Blu-ray release some company would have announced something by now. Unless it's just a matter of scheduling and we are playing the waiting game.
  12. Prime 1 Studio Non-Scale VF-1

    Ouch on the price. I think there is probably more value in getting the light up cockpit speaker for display. I know some want a big display but I would go for a transformable valkyrie as well over this version. People on the Statue Forum are talking about possible variants too. If that happens the price / rarity thing isn't going to work out for Prime 1. Maybe it's me but I would have gone with a simple design of Rick & Lisa or Minmay in the open cockpit and have the valkryie just hovering over the water. That would speak more to the overall theme of Macross. Or if you wanted an action pose do the Rick saves Minmay scene.
  13. Bandai DX VF-31

    I would go to an ebay seller before I used Nippon Yasan. There are a few others in Japan that get exclusives but I haven't tried them out yet. Normally I stick with Amiami and 1999. Mostly 1999 now because they have the shipping price built in unlike Amiami where you have to wait for the price to confirm the order.
  14. Parka got it early and did a review and his usual page through. https://www.parkablogs.com/content/book-review-robotech-visual-archive-macross-saga He's right and there are some small pictures in the book. But and here is my disclaimer as they say sometimes. I like Robotech and have only watched the original Macross once. And still haven't watched the original Southern Cross or Mospeada completely yet. Anyone have the Robotech Art 1 book around and their Japanese Macross artbooks to compare the quality and overlap? I have Robotech Art 1, 2, and 3 boxed away somewhere. But I think with Amazon discounts I might pick up these Visual Archives when they finish the ones for the Robotech Masters and New Generation. Maybe by the time these are finished they will have a Robotech Blu-ray available and then I'll be finished with Harmony Gold.
  15. ANIME Figures and Statues

    Perhaps it's the best of both worlds since she's based off a real cosplay model. I don't know. Here is the model in question. I'll make it so you have to click the link since she's wearing the same costume as the figure. Which I guess would make it NSFW. https://www.instagram.com/p/Baux4JBAYGC/?taken-by=swimsuitsuccubus
