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

    That looks like an early Christmas! I'm looking over the Amiami and HLJ sales. Perhaps I'll find one of the items on my list for sale.
  2. Macross figures

    Same here. I'm hoping that people are watching these small figures and will eventually give us at least Hikaru, Minmay, Misa, Max, and perhaps a few others in a decent figure scale.
  3. Let's see if the Freeing E=X Garland comes out this month. The Arcadia one is July now according to Amiami.

    I'm waiting Rook's red version and hopefully they fix all the issues picked up by people here.
  5. Macross figures

    This one looks better than the Minmay. If Misa turns out good I might get Hikaru and Misa.
  6. I remember watching Pole Position because like all kids back then I loved the arcade game. I don't remember any of the episodes though. I only remember the opening. I was looking at Mighty Orbots ebay sold auctions and realized that the Complete DVD cover art is just art from the VHS episode Magnetic Menace. So maybe it's just a placeholder. I hope so but I don't know why they would use a placeholder when the DVD is weeks away from release. I saw this sold Mighty Orbots artwork. I'm sure this artist could put together a good piece of art for the cover featuring the whole team. I don't think a Galaxy Rangers reboot would be that good unless it's in the same style or just really high quality animation and stories. I still haven't seen the new Voltron yet but I'm not jumping to see it. I'll get to it eventually though. I hope they are putting some effort into the DVD. But seeing as I stumbled on the news and searching there still isn't that much news postings. I bet it will be fairly light on the extras. I wish they put together a set like Galaxy Rangers. That was a good two volume DVD set. I got a set of sketches from ebay too. I've never seen much production artwork or books for Mighty Orbots so I had to get a set. They still have more copies available and they are cheap. https://www.ebay.com/itm/MIGHTY-ORBOTS-47-PAGES-OF-MODEL-SHEETS-WITH-MULTIPLE-IMAGES/121403033387?hash=item1c442f472b:g:ajkAAOSwAYtWPhZF
  7. 1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

    They cancelled the Dropship? Did you see a reason? I wanted to get that and the DeLorean.
  8. 1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

    I've seen a few people with videos of Kids Logic products. Sometimes these items get delayed. I know one of my Sideshow Collectibles statues was just delayed. And I think the majority of these companies use the same factories. It is bad when they don't provide updates though. I wouldn't be too concerned unless you notice on a forum that many items are delayed or no one is receiving customer support. That could indicate financial issues.

    I'm displaying whichever version I get with the visor up. They will probably be in bike mode depending on if they release Rook and Lancer.
  10. I just saw this news. I caught the DVD on ebay doing my usual search and couldn't believe it. http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Mighty-Orbots-The-Complete-Series/24073 It's a manufacture on demand DVD which I've never heard of before. The cover art should be a lot better too. But I'm not going to miss this release. I think we are a step closer to a Mighty Orbots Chogokin now. The opening for those that don't know about the show.
  11. Kickstarter Gunsmith Cats edition

    I think there was a reason he didn't make or add AD Police and Crash to the original Kickstarter but I can't remember right now. I know people asked as they were calling it the ultimate set. Maybe if they do get around to AD Police and Crash, they can redo Bubblegum Crisis OVA in the form that they are making Riding Bean and Gunsmith Cats. I've never seen AD Police but I recall Kenichi Sonoda didn't have as much input on Crash as the original Crisis. I know he did the artwork for the three promotional art pieces. I need to check my Sonoda Artworks book for any others. I think I have the Crash B-Club packed away somewhere. The high priced sketch stuff went quick. You needed to be watching to get those. I probably would have gone for one of the original hankens at Anime-Link first though. You guys might like this.
  12. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    I saw this Mighty Orbots custom on ebay recently. https://www.ebay.com/itm/JUMBO-ROBERT-like-Mighty-Orbots-3D-Printed-Robot-Figure-by-Mecha-Zone-/112856330861?hash=item1a46c2f26d%3Ag%3A8hgAAOSwG0taobJx&nma=true&si=9VhxG9jvhrpRgAiffSyynBY6YDU%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 A few people paid good money for these. $232.50 and $275. Also, I think around the last Wonder Fest someone posted a figure of that robot that was supposed to be similar to Mighty Orbots. I can't find the image now. But I believe they will get around to Saber Rider / Bismarck and Mighty Orbots. They can't keep making the same robots in a new line. I'm thinking that Dangaio or Iczer-Robo have to be close to next because of the designer though.
  13. I edited the title and added Blu-ray. I thought "various items" would be a catch all since there is a toys topic and a few others. I assume someone will start a topic for the new series whenever it's officially announced. Plus some times news of items gets lost in the conversation.

    Hmm. This was in a bigger mall, I always assumed it was a chain store. But I'll look into the older independent stores. I just found the mall where I first saw the Macross Gold book. That was an independent type comic / toy store in a smaller type mall compared to the larger style malls with big anchor retailers. But that mall is very different now. In fact it's not really a mall anymore but a strip mall. The interior stores are all gone and replaced by large chain retailers. It's really sad to see. They basically wrecked the interior that had walkways and ponds for places like Bed Bath and Beyond. I don't think that Cyclone was very expensive. I don't imagine it was more than a video game. From what I remember, it was near the front of the store. I know I got the small SD valkyries there as well. I never saw those at the big stores like Toys R Us or Child World. I was leaning that the store might have been a Kay Bee or Circus World.
  15. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    Hopefully they are quick to get to the next two in the Full Action line so they can make Voltron, Dangaio, Iczer-Robo, and a few others. I assume we won't know about the next ones till the end of the year or so now.
