    Yamato 1/60 Scale Destroid Tomahawk

    Yay, finally a new Macross toy I can probably justify spending the money and space on. Hopefully the dollar will not have completely tanked by September, and I can get one for less than $100. No, I don't plan on owning a 1/60 Monster...probably ever. Would love to see what Yamato could do with some of the other enemy mecha besides the Q-Rau in 1/60. Wouldn't it be cool to see the Glaug and Regult's cockpits done in detail?
  2. Welcome back to everyone, and thanks to Shawn and the other staff for their work. I don't come here very often these days but it's good to be able to drop by and know MW is still around.

    WTF is this?

    Aha! I forgot that one had the city, and I was thrown off by the way the carriers are (un)mounted. Looks pretty nice that way. Hey, Noyhauser, thanks for the welcome! I've bene off in RPG-land, but I was drawn back by the pheremones released by the 1/60 VF-0S.

    Okay, so where did this thing come from? Who made it? Ebay Auction

    Macross At New York Toy Fair

    Well, this is interesting to come back to. I'll skip the doll, but if the quality on the 1/100's is decent, I'd consider buying one even at retail just to have a better 1/100 than the old chunky-monkey version. Better still if they do a SDF:Macross (TV) Max 1A. If they make destroids or Zentradi mecha in scale, so much the better. But I'm betting Toynami doesn't really know how to make stuff that isn't based on existing toys. Thus these are scaled-up banpresos just as the MPCs were scaled-up HCMs.

    What ever happen to?

    Hey, guys, still alive. And AgentONE is indeed a nice guy. I can say that now because his cover's already been blown. Actually, with MZero over and toy releases down to a trickle (especially since I'm not a massive 1/48 freak), plus going "cold turkey" during a couple trips, it was easy to get lured away by other interests...not to mention work. I really appreciate all the flattering stuff y'all said about me, though. More, more! (Also: I read a bit of the "nice" M7 thread--some interesting stuff there.)

    Is your collection insured?

    Talking slightly out of my ass here but I recently got renter's insurance and in the course of discussing it with my agent, I seem to recall being told that a) This type of insurance generally covers value as opposed to purchase cost. b) For an additional payment, (some? all?) insurance companies will give you a special type of coverage where you give them a list beforehand of your valuables/collectibles, including value (which they probably sign off on). The obvious benefit of this is that you get everything in black and white before you ever have to make a claim but I remember being told that items on "the list" aren't subject to a deductible. I decided the extra cost wasn't worth it for me but it might make sense for the hard-core among us, especially if you also have some other stuff in the house like jewelry.

    What was the name of that book?

    Saw both books at Kinokuniya book store in Japantown in San Francisco the other day. The Miyatake book is indeed meh, unless you read Japanese (in which case, who knows, maybe there are some great insights and recollections). About the only thing that interested me were the pictures of the Zentradi mecha from Macross Plus. Also some stuff from M7 and the video games, like the Konig Monster. But everything else (or virtually everything) is already in Perfect Memory. The Tenjin book is indeed very nice to look at but I didn't bite for the price.
  10. Am I correct that only episodes 1-26 have aired and they're just cycling now? Does anyone know when they'll continue with the rest of the series? Will they show the movie?

    Robotech and HG license debates

    As long as we're engaged in wishful thinking, consider that Bandai could eventually just buy Takara for whatever reason. Not motivated by a desire to consolidate the Macross properties, surely, but that would be a side effect.

    auctions of great absurdity

    Isn't that the 1/5700 matchbox min-SDF-1 (non-transforming)?

    Stealth versus Yukikaze

    Or while smashing the Stealth he can say "Feah dis guy" (pointing to self). The quip for Yukikaze is too obvious...

    New from the Bootleg World...

    I think there's also a red one, and the same series included an SDF-1 and an Orgroid (from Orguss). All the Converters are based on the cheapest Takatoku converting toys, the ones that nobody really wants any more, and are at least semi-legal in the sense that Select has some kind of relationship with Mark which is a Takatoku brand or something like that. It's possible though that they technically violate the design copyrights.

    We can rebuild him we have the technology

    It hasn't? That was a pretty good series, at times. Now, I'm wondering, why do they use nerve impulse sensors instead of what I remember described in Starship Troopers (the book)--where the suit has pressure sensors to "follow" your body movements?
