  1. Okay the idea behind this thread is simple, users tend to ask questions that are, for better words, either easy to find common knowledge or sound pretty funny. You don't want to look stupid and we don't want to have mod a bunch of little topics. Examples: "Whose that green haired lady?" "What happen to Rick hunter?" "Did Minmay kiss her brother?" "Is this video from this country a bootleg?" "What's with the Zentradi elf-ears?" "Is there an official answer to <insert story="" or="" production="" trivia="" here="">?" "Where can I find a copy of this <insert product="" here="">?" "When will we see <insert product="" here=""> come out?" "What are this things?"/"Where are these things?"/"Who are these things?" "What <insert show or episode> did <insert event or item> show up?" and other newbie or short questions like these post them here. Ground rules It's only for newbie-type and short question/answer type questions about Macross. When someone post a simple question here hopefully one the more experienced posters will tell the newbie the answer. It's Question & Answer-format only. Nothing more. Newbies tend to be lazy and ask questions about everything. If you can point the newbie to the source it's better than just telling them the answer straight. If you see a newbie question about Macross somewhere else direct them here and their other topic will be closed/deleted. Search is a great tool.

  2. Just saw this on Reddit. Looks like a bunch of stuff was filed last week and Harmony Gold is taking legal action vs Tatsunoko, but for what? https://www.open-public-records.com/court/california-23006746.htm Please nuke this topic if this is listed somewhere else already I wonder what it is they hope to accomplish and what the possible outcomes could be O_o
  3. Macross in the weirdest places

    Recently got back from a hitchhiking trip here in Japan, and on my first day came upon this poster at a rest stop outside of Tokyo.
  4. TV SDF-1 Macross 1/1600 (1/2400)

    As promised ill be starting the ok im using a Tamiya Modellers Knife, Metal Ruler, adhesive lacquer, syringe w/ blunt needle, Cutting Mat, tweezers, cyanoacrylate Thin (Super glue), a dull needle or similar, and a pair of scissors for rough cutting. the syringe is for easy application and dosage of the glue of cause it doesnt have to Tamiya any model knife can be used, in the end its what you feel most comfortable with. now the super glue is not a must... but i find it very useful in certain situations! the needle is for bevel the paper on foldlines...(if u have absolute no clue as to what i just wrote, tell me and ill post a video of it) now first up, a little fun fact: These are in scale!! and remember: to those of you out there who is also building this model, ask me if u have any trouble with this build... or if you feel that i havent explained a troublesome part, thoroughly enough! what i did firstly was to scan the pages from the original magazine and scale them up from A4 to A3 which changes the size from 50 cm in length to 75 cm thats why it seems so big on my cutting mat, just an info so you dont get confused ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Ok here we go! First some simple parts should be straight foreward now this bigger piece, its important to start glueing the big flaps first, to make sure they lineup with the panelines. a friend of mine could not figure out how the next big piece would fit together, it actually to me a couple of glances.. the need to be seperated first this is it for today.....
  5. After a long break from my last Macross/Mecha kit building (as well as my hobby life), Somehow I managed to come back to it! I've always wanted to make this custom build, but I had a couple of reasons I didn't start until now. The biggest reason was my fear of paint wearing and chipping on transforming kit, but I might have found some solution - which is not fully tested yet. Anyways, the below image is my project plan. Basically, my goal with this project is to make it like Hasegawa 1/48 or Club-M resin kit - while keeping the ability to transform between 3 modes add details where it's safe add lights where it's possible and make sense. use metal where it makes sense for texture or it need strength The base kit will be either VF-1J or VF-1S that I bought from HLJ during 'Panic buying frenzy' I haven't decided which one it will be yet. It could be My favorite first TV Hikaru VF-1J - but cockpit design is not as cool as movie ones, and doesn't go with cool launch arm (that I'm planning to build later..) Movie Focker VF-1S Super Valkyrie - All good except that I'm not a big fan of S head design Movie Hikaru VF-1S Strike - it's the final battle model - All good except that I'm not a big fan of S head design I'll decide as I go.. By the way, I've been buying some supplies and parts for this mod for a while now. Below is a some part of it So.. according to my plan, I'll be doing some major work on the wings, chest block, backpack(?) and cockpit area. So I've made silicon mold to start copying those parts. My workflow will be 'recast - cutout/rework - recast those parts'..etc Also I found a cool mechanical hand parts that I can use. Size is between 2 hand types that comes with Yamato 1/60. Design is a little different, so I need to work on that. That's it for now, but I started it at last!! I can only work on this over the weekend nights, so it will be very slow process..

  7. Hi I am new to the forum, but I hope this topic generates some feedback as I am currently working on shoulder hinge & forearm replacement parts for a VF-0A by Yamato ( now Arcadia ). I have included some shots from my current progress. I should have a new set of replacements parts in metal here in the next few weeks. If anyone has parts they'd like to see redone in metal or plastic please PM me and let me know. We can move forward from there. PS these are precise replicas built from existing plastic (albeit - broken) parts from original 1/60 figure. NOTE: if you are interested in a quote for custom work, I will need at least one of the following: 1. a detailed set of hyper accurate illustrations including the top, side, front, and possibly bottom of the piece / part in question. and or 2. The piece mailed to me so I have it in my hands to produce sail illustrations / take measurements. I cannot do it from just a photo. Cheers! RocketBoyStudio
  8. Macross Island Diorama

    i might aswell make this an actual thread... i have have started my very first Diorama, and its is the SDF-1 situated on macross island, its will be in scale 1/8000. the SDF-1 model im using in the diorama is a Bandai 1/8000 storm attacker kit, i converted into Cruiser mode, i had to remodel some of the parts since they where not to scale or was simply the wrong shape, changes made to parts where: Main cannon (gave it more bulk and more details) Main Cannon connector (changed shape completely) bridge boom (made from scratch) bridge (needed separation and details) main thrusters (looked to much like feet, changed shape and added details) the diorama rough sketch is pretty much done, need more roads though.

  11. Super Dimension Foto's Patreon Page Photography is a hobby of mine. Doing Macross themed Cosplay photo shoots seems like a good idea to me. I'm starting things off with a series dedicated to Misa. This project will emulate classic imagery of character in photographs (and possible video). I picked Misa because she’s a strong female character that doesn’t get that much attention. In the future I'd like to include more characters from the series or pop culture. I've already did the first shoot. You should be able to match most of the poses up with the line art. It was simple shoot with a real model. Her name is Lee and has agreed to portay Misa for several shoots. You will see more of her and hopefully others. I ask that you don't say anything disrespectful about her/them or attempt to contact them in private with the intent to harass. I will take steps to remove you from Macross World if you do. This thread will be periodically cleaned up. Why focus on one character? It is simple economics. I like to include more characters but resources are limited. I'm going to stretch my dollar by getting the most mileage out of each character. These shoots will be primarily self-funded. On my own I can afford a modest monthly/bimonthly photo shoot. I know people that will want to see the pictures will also want to see more elaborate photo shoots with more extras like new characters. If you're willing to be a patron in supporting this project we can increase the production value. Here are 2 sample pictures. I will share 1 more every other day for a total of 5 freebies. If you want to see rest of this photo set click on the link above. (Click to see bigger) (Click to see bigger) For those that don't want to sign up for a Patreon account I will accept direct donations for each set. I can also arrange things by private request for very generous patrons. Cosplay photography isn't cheap. If you're willing to donate more to help fund things we can include your requests in a future photoset to be shared with the rest of the patrons. If you don't want to share and willing to pay for everything that can be arranged as well. Special Note: None these photo sets will be pornographic or show extreme violence. This includes private commissions. I photograph clients of all ages and that is not the type of photographer I want them to see me as. Some of the photos will be very SFW and others may border on being NSFW. If is it acceptable to a museum than it is acceptable to me.
  12. Macross mod for Homeworld Remastered

    Hi folks ! Just passing by to introduce you a very ambitious mod called "MACROSS Univers" which is supposed to cover every opus of the franchise at its term. For now, it is still a WIP status and the first part of the mod is progressing very well, but let's take a step further into details if you don't mind ^^ First of all, I'm not the original modder, that guy is named "cooper59" on this forum, and you can contact him for more informations or simply use this thread just as we will do to keep you informed about how the mod is progressing. The mod is planned to be released by generation, the first one is almost done and right now cooper59 is having a hard time with A.I coding and I'd like to take the opportunity to ask the community for help. If someone skilled enough with coding and with plenty of time and passion for the Macross universe like us, might be up to give some advices or even be recruited to help us to achieve this project, he/she would be welcomed onboard. A good understanding/speaking of French would be a bonus ^^ MACROSS Univers is available on steam workshop, you can find it here : http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=581220784 The first part of the mod will cover both the serie and the movie "Do you remember love" KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS MOD IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS. IT HAS BEEN RELEASED FOR TESTING PURPOSES. A lot of units are missing, only a few are available in deathmatch mode, no skirmish vs CPU support yet. Here's a little trailer to give you an idea of what it looks like, have fun and see you soon ! Edit : As you may have noticed, there is no description for the first updates within the logs, but it is about to change. First, I would like to detail how we are going to proceed. So, each update will start by a "0" and thus, until the final release which will most likely be "1.0" and should change again after that... The second digit represents the generation being developed at the moment, and the last part of the designation is the step-by-step evolution for the generation being developed. For instance, right now the mod has the current status "0.1.10", so this is the 10th update for the 1st generation. Here's the mini roadmap (subject to changes) 0.1.xx => Macross TV show & movie 0.2.xx => Macross+ & Macross7 0.3.xx => Macross Frontier 0.4 is under discussion for Macross Delta implementation 0.5 Going to BETA 0.X Fixing bugs/balancing > 0.1.10 - Fixed an issue with "ARMD cruiser" and "Oberth destroyer" building process > 0.1.09 - Added the ARMD class for carrier and cruiser > 0.1.01 => 0.1.08 - release of the mod under testing protocol - Add various units without A.I for deathmatch *SDF1 version TV show *Spider Bug *Lockhee SF-3A Lancer II *Northrom QF-3000E Ghost *Stonewell Bellcom VF-4 Lightning III *Shinnakasu VF-1J Super Valkyrie *Nupetiet-Vergnitzs *Quiltra Queleual And here's a little sum up of the situation : To make it short, cooper is definitely the brain of this project, he manages the models rendering, scripts edition, animations and FX/SFX integration all that kind of stuff that make my eyes crossing in only few hours On my side, I'm an "Ad Hoc" paintbrush and as it, I take care of movie making and test the mod before any update on steam (that's right I've got units to play with that you don't ^^). I also try to save cooper some time, for instance right now I'm isolating and gathering the maximum of sounds from the Macross series to build a sound data bank for him to quickly integrate SFX. The sad part is that both of us aren't skilled enough in coding for now and from here we have two options...either we can get into it, but not now because of the models priority, or, and it would be the better, we can find a nice and AI-skilled person already used to deal with those problematics. In the first case, it might grealty increase the delay since cooper would have to start coding from scratch :/ He is already in contact with people who might be helpful but beyond that I'm afraid I don't know that much about where it goes, I guess we'll see. See you guys !
  13. 1/144 Queadluun Rau (Bandai)

    had this kit laying around... and decided to work on it! the pilot figure in the box horrified me.... looked more like a girlish boy than a well proportioned woman... so..... i...... the arms were imo out of proportions... did something about that.. also started on the "cockpit" and lots of things where "off" started work on that too.... will make room for the pilot.... all of her... will also add as much of the interior as i can.... also missile bays on shoulder will be made bigger...
  14. I am currently in the market for a Robotech box set. There are so many floating around and I cant make a decision. The ones I have glanced over are The Protoculture Collection, The 20 disk Complete Set, The Legacy collection, The A&E collection out of which seems the best but cant be sure. Can anyone make a solid recommendation?
  15. Does anyone know anything about this 6 disk blu-ray set I saw on eBay: Super Dimension Fortress Macross Bluray Box 1-36 + Movie & OVA ENGLISH SUB A/US It says it has English subtitles for the original Macross TV series, the DYRL movie, Macross II and some other extras. It sounds like a pretty good deal for $100, but I'm concerned what the quality is like, since this is almost certainly not legitimate. I searched on the internet, but I wasn't able to find any reviews or information about this set. I'm interested in what the audio and video is like, and how good the English subtitles are. Also, if these are the remastered versions or not. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
  16. Hello guys, I am a robot collector, new in this forum and I do not know if I am at right place. I want to sell this very rare Valkyrie. It has been made by Lansay with the Bandai Mold. (So technically it is possible to say it is a KO). The problem is that I do not have an idea of what price will be fair because it is very rare. According to what I read it is the rarest version for Valkyrie. Mine is in good shape but unfortunately on loose... if you can help on it it will be great !!
  17. "Regult Encounter"

    Well, Photoshop is kinda operational. Thought I'd finish up a project I started a while back...
  18. Macross pachinko game

    QUOTE (Gubaba @ Sep 14 2009, 10:58 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Don't get too excited...it's just a pachinko game. Thanks for ruining the fun Gubaba. Anyways, why am I seeing new animation of Minmay on that page? O_o
  19. My take on Episode 12 from SDFM: "Big Escape". You know it's embarrassing when someone just flew a Valkyrie right through your bridge (not to mention right in front of your BOSS), and all you can do is glare after them as they proceed to streak to the nearest exit. Breetai's probably going to need some Zentraedi-strength Tylenol after this one... https://www.patreon.com/pbz313
  20. Hello~! I'm going back to Sakura-Con in Seattle next year, and I'm curious if there will be other Macross fans and/or cosplayers going! I'll be there with my friends and cosplaying as DYRL Minmay and Mikumo. If there's enough interest, I might host a Macross meet-up (the last one I attended at Sakura-Con was in 2011 T___T ) and hopefully connect with more Macross fans~
  21. Valkwave Plus

    https://youtu.be/KcVF0BHSDYg I decided to throw this together since Vapor wave and planes seem to be a trend these days. Have a little 19 and 21 love.
  22. Macross Elysium

    Alright, so I've got this little Macross project going that I'm actually making huge strides in. It's called "Macross Elysium"; a fan comic made by myself that features original characters and an original setting. The prologue itself has already been uploaded onto deviantart and tumblr. You can find the links here: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/art/Macross-Elysium-Chapter-One-Page-1-489723260 https://www.facebook.com/MacrossElysium/ In this thread, I'll be posting updates, character art, and even the occasional mecha designs! Stay tuned! EDIT: I'm going to link each chapter here for those interested: Chapter 1: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/gallery/51587732/Macross-Elysium-CHAPTER-ONE Chapter 2: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/gallery/52987946/Macross-Elysium-CHAPTER-TWO Chapter 3: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/gallery/55039743/Devious-Folder Chapter 4: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/gallery/57297697/Macross-Elysium-CHAPTER-4 Chapter 5: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/gallery/58498902/Devious-Folder Chapter 6: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/gallery/59892071/Devious-Folder Chapter 7: http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/…/Macross-Elysium-CHAPT…
