  1. The YF-30 does have a specific mission and target... To test the fold dimensional resonance system. It really shouldn't even be a YF prototype cause they don't plan to mass produce it, but SMS lied about it to keep the specs secret. I wonder if they had to pay for that heh. By now federal NUNS probably have all that data anyway. In any case there is no expectation of a fighter based directly on the 30 for actual mission use cause it was never supposed to be that. NUNS could make a new prototype based on it for that if they wanted later to add to the already monster specs of their VF-24 (which probably doesn't even have a fold wave system). Just imagine the colossus of a full spec VF with a functioning FDR.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Hmm.. I much prefer the Supers to the gawdy armored pack the 31 got, but maybe.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Not really surprising on the last part, I just figured I'd ask. It does seem a weird oversight on the 31A but it was a special I suppose.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    I know this is a bit old news with the focus on the recent Chuck release and armored packs coming up apparently but I haven't kept up on this thread so two questions: Did the VF-31A ever get super parts and regardless how difficult would it be to get 31F super parts now outside of a private sale (which I may look into)? Same question if the 31A has any I suppose.
  5. I was on my phone too, we probably just balanced out. Yeah I haven't booked yet either, but I'm expecting I'll be there anyway.
  6. Are we going back to what is canon again? Lol, this is always fun. Unlike a lot of properties, in Macross what is canon is basically anything from a certain point of view. The only thing that was every strictly termed to be not part of the main universe is Macross II, and even that is not necessarily considered non canon. Seto can say more being the expert on M2, and all around well researched. EDIT: And Seto got in before I finished writing, ever the poised one. Speaking of, will you be at SDcon again this year Seto? I plan to again, after all it's a pretty short trip for me anyway.
  7. I feel like with Macross this was only a matter of time though.
  8. I live right on it... It's been a rough couple of days, but I'm doing ok. A lot of my DX VFs lost their shelf spots for now, but nothing broke I think. Small victories. Not most important of course.
  9. It's worth noting there already is a discord server for SDCon that I've seen a few people from here in. It has some generic chat channels as well as Macross focused stuff aside from the convention related things. It's not especially active, but it is just nice to have options in any case. Doesn't stop me coming here.. you won't get the long form discussions you get here in a Discord chat as the pace is a lot faster in the latter. Forums still have their use, one thing doesn't mean the other is obsolete. In other words, it's possible to have both, but not everyone needs to use both.
  10. I'll join ya for that! It'd be worth an overnight stay in LA to celebrate that (I live only 3 hours away).
  11. That was a really quick turn around...
  12. They're built tough (definitely more than Ford tough), with even their organs being hardy so they can accelerate like crazy and not have everything turn into jelly.. that or they have a natural ISC of their own.. which is not hard to believe considering all the tech that is based on them originally as it is.
  13. In his case it may just be nostalgia of course, or he was on boats in a past career before joining SMS. It's not a military job so really anything goes there.
  14. To wit, Max is a Colonal in Macross 7 as well. I think it even gets said on screen once or twice.
  15. Seto probably will come in shortly with the correct answer, but I suspect they have a natural version of what is the basis of the Fold Organs the Protoculture built into the EVIL series weapons (the biomechanical creatures that would ultimately be taken over by the Protodeviln... well not all of them, the one of Oroborous stayed hidden for a while. Also the Bird-Human might be one too... but it was made a lot later I think). Basically they are naturally derived biomechanical fold reactors. For the Vajra, they run off of fold quartz so they are massively efficient. We also know the Vajra can "mine" (eat) natural fold carbon and the rare natural fold quartz and basically refine it in their bodies. This is why in Frontier the best source for fold quartz was dead Vajra.
