  1. Funny you mention the DX YF-19. I was actually pondering selling mine. With the exception of the arm cannon, I find myself preferring the Arcadia version more. The non-glowy fold booster, the short heels, and the big white "UN SPACY" and "N.E.T.F.C" text on the wings really kind of bother me.
  2. @Sanity is Optional now you have me debating the pros and cons of downsizing my Macross toy collection. You do make a good point about the monthly cost adding up, where it might make more sense to downsize and re-buy later on. (Why am I starting to feel feverish and short of breath?) Oh, I don't feel well. Time to re-watch the entire "Girl Meets World" series in one sitting, to de-stress and recover.
  3. So, just the 2 VF-1Ds (orange from episode 1, blue from the wedding)?
  4. You are referring to the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, located near Dayton, Ohio. I grew up near there and visited the museum many times with my dad. I think that is where I first developed a love of fighter jets. ( I also think my dad originally wished before I was born that he'd have a son to pass along the family name, but anyways... ) Anyways, I love that museum. Anyone interested in visiting it or learning more about the museum can find its website here: https://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil
  5. My favorites from each Macross show... Macross TV: The "Booby Duck" from episode 24... what would later be referred to as the VF-1S with Super Parts. 愛 おぼえていますか (DYRL): VE-1 Elint Seeker. I get weak in the knees for that radome. Macross Plus: VF-11B Thunderbolt. Love its variable geometry wings and its clear VF-1 design lineage. Macross 7: VF-22 Sturmvogel II. Max and Miria flying these birds together in the final episode did it for me. Macross Frontier: VF-171 Nightnare Plus. Very cool seeing the VF-17 from Macross 7 get a sleeker design update. Macross Delta: VF-31C Siegfried. Normally, I am not the biggest fan of planes with forward-swept wings, but the addition of the multi-purpose container kind of won me over to the design.
  6. So.... is it bad that I am considering renting a temperature-controlled 10 foot x 15 foot storage unit for about $190/month, so that I can store my Macross toy collection and de-clutter my home? *sigh*
  7. Temperature may also be a concern. You don't want your toys baking in a hot trailer in the middle of summer. This could promote plastic yellowing.
