Eternal D, I paid $169.00 for it at a closeout warehouse called “City Liquidators” in Portland OR. If they still have any more I am going to get another one this week, with all of this new Macross and Mospeada stuff coming out I’m going to need it.

Eventually I want to have shelves for each of these themes

Macross Zero

Macross DYRL

Macross TV #1

Macross TV #2

Destroids

Macross Plus/Macross 7

Non Cannon Valk Camo’s

Mospeada #1

Haaay, i envy you guys, you got lots of macross already and i got just a few (and small valks at that). I guess the main problem was i am not exactly a sole macross collector. I also collect other stuff which basically spreads out my expenses into different toy lines. :rolleyes:

From 2004 when i started, this is what i have collected so far for both macross and other toy items:

yep, that is my bed board.. the small valks are vintage bootlegs 1/144 scale

th_IMG_0788.jpg

a close up you can see a SD vf1s valk and SD macross

th_IMG_0789.jpg

okies, this is at the foot of my bed, my display cabinet. havent canvassed yet for a glass door.. i was thinking of ripping the entire cabinet off and just buy a larger one with a glass case. All of the boxes are stored somewhere else since I don't have extra space here.

th_IMG_0790.jpg

the rest of my small macross collection: 1 hi-metal strike valk (red armor is what i got on the legs and right arm, a variant), 1 henkei type macross without the shoulder cannons, 1 1/100 cannon fodder (yes, the legs are bootlegs - but the upper half is genuine bandai), 2 joke machines, 1 small scale vf1j valk, and 3 cms figures

th_IMG_0791.jpg

well, the reasons i didnt exactly have enough money for valks are these:

souchaku henshin stuff with vintage shaider items, takatoku arcadia, emeraldas, and godzilla final wars gotengo ship

th_IMG_0792.jpg

a billiken tetsuwan atom (quite rare for a vinyl)

th_IMG_0793.jpg

ah this one is an exemption, i didnt spend a dime on this robot. a gift from my dad.. this mecha was serialized on tv at the same time macross dyrl was shown in cinemas circa 1984

th_IMG_0794.jpg

yep, non-japanese toys: GI Joe hehehe.. if anyone has vintage gijoes lemme know :D

th_IMG_0795.jpg

well i just hope i can get more valks, and a cabinet soon! thanks for looking.. B))

Help me guys, I'm going to buy an 1/48 vf-1s but I haven't decided yet... hikaru or focker.

The focker's is a second edition, but I'm not sure about the hikaru's. :unsure:

Check out my mad angle i got my scared as hell YF-19 is posed in.

All ready for the Fold to be attached. Perfect!

This is using my only flexi display (i think it's the longest length type).

h.jpg

I.jpg

Here's my attempt at something new.. My Hikky 1S with part GPB armour.. the way i see it, for faster

mobility and close quarter combat sakes, all he needs is the arm, shoulder, and leg armours.

The side missile pod hatches are removed, but the back ones are still there, i guess eventually Hik would

disengage them also, but only after he used them up. Like freeing movement for kicks i think i'd remove them too.

The chest armor is too bulky, as is the backpacks boosters, and extra Missle pod hatches. I seriously think this

would kick ass if all he had to do was go in, beat the crap out of rogue Zentran/Meltran, and then get back out.

The mobility would be alot better than a full GBP'd VF-1. What is everyone's opinion?

Plus let's not forget, it looks f'n cool.

j.jpg

k.jpg

Here's some more food for thought, how about a VF-1 equiped with just the Arm and Leg FP armours?

If the YF-19 (with similar working smaller FPs..) can have a long range missile pop out of a retracted/opening

FP, then why can't the VF-1's FP as well? The FP's are larger, i know there is alot of engine workings included

in there, but surely they could make it work. A long range missle under armour is a filthy idea. I loved how

the Yf-19 had this feature, so why not for the VF-1? Even just a Medium range typed missile... hell yeah!

I love this look! :D

Roy's 1S, in my trademark pose. Yeah i kept my CF in the same pose while i attempted to put the 1S in

the same position, it is a tricky one to get correct lol, and of course you have to have the display cabinent

shape and glass to get the lean effect i have going here. :lol:

m.jpg

I'll post some more once they get uploaded onto me photobucket. :D

More displaying goodness...

I changed my Hik 1S Strike around, i for the life of me couldn't get a better stance than what i had previous to this one,

this is the best i can do, unfortunately the Ordance pods can't fit, other wise the arms had to be raised.'

I like this pose, i tried to get it as close to the ending scene where it pans to Hik's 1S looking all cool in neautral floating

stance and Hikaru & Misa confirm the assasination of Bodolza.

I did a better angle but i need to take it off camera, i'll post it later today with other juicy poses pics...

I saw a custom gakken online once, of the big red robot. (Rook Bartley in Robotech, don't know what it is otherwise) It was one of the big gakken toys, and it was holy f--king sh-t gorgeous. They used a bunch of gundam kit parts I believe to fix it up, and a looooooot of skill as well. I wonder if I have those pics saved on my computer still... custom paint job as well. Iwas like Yamato made a 1/48 scale gakken! Okay anyway, you ought to customize yours. Oh, and damned nice collection.

Okay, to be honest, I only have that many toys in my toy room because I'm selling all the doubles on consignment. Plus, the bottom two Strike Valkyries are boxes and styrofoam only :)

I just couldnt resist taking a group shot!
