Macross in the weirdest places

Recommended Posts

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.

We've seen it before. Pizza Hut also had a Frontier promotion. This is about e-toll.

Was it at Mitsuwa? Or was it a supermarket aimed at a primarily English speaking audience?

Nice poster, thanks for sharing with us! It was advertising e-toll?

We need Macross Frontier advertisements for NYC metrocards next :p

I won't be surprised if I walk into Costa Mesa Mitsuwa and hear "triangler" or "Lion" in a few months... Costa Mesa mitsuwa always seems to be a few months behind the times..

By any chance does anyone have the Mitsuwa "GO HOME" music they play about 15 minutes before closing, to subtly tell you "time to go home"... it's a very soft, almost lullaby-esque instrumental. I want it >_<!!

I saw a California license plate "MACROSS" once while on the freeway. Was that one of you guys? :lol:

I also saw a UN Spacy kite sticker on a truck while I was in line for the open call for "Corporate Headquarters".

If you can find me that decal, totally. :ph34r:

Also, I used to have pics of what I think was a Honda accord with DYRL hikaru skull one markings. Have no idea what happened to them. Anyone else seen that before?

However cool this all is, it still doesn't beat the Mucha inspired art found in a men's room years ago. ^_^

Did they ever have the ad for the crappy boardgame Upwords in the US where you can clearly see MACROSS spelt across the board. (I personally doubt it was an accident). I am trying to find my copy of the ad to put on Youtube.

I remember seeing a car that was tuned with a Macross theme. They sort of took elements of a VF-1 and incorporated it into the car. Things such as UN-Spacy logos, skull squadron logos, intake markings, no step, etc. It was very well done and looked really cool. If I come across the picture I will post it.

Pretty sure it's on the board somewhere. Kawamori knows where, though.

exactly what I'm talking about.

also, I've seen a white pick-up truck around where i live. it has a black stripe along the side with '001' on the rear corner of the bed side; and on the door it has of all things the spacy kite from MacII.

There have been a couple Macross themed cars posted on the forums.

One was by vfx1, I think it was an Acura Integra given the skull squadon treatment. Vaguely remember it even getting in to a magazine?

And there was a member who brought their custom Macross-themed car to MWcon03.

I had actually originally typed "We welcome out giant-sized meltran masters," but decided that the current one was better.

Is Shoji Kawamori a follower of L. Ron Hubbard? In Scientology they believe humanity and our evolution was affected thousands of years ago by aliens; sounds a awful like the protoculture. :lol:

Scientology doesn't have a monopoly on that belief nor are they the originators of it (nor is it their central belief). The whole aliens actively affecting the creation of life on earth more the domain of Raëlism. Interestingly enough, the Raëlist symbol is contains a spiral - albeit a six-armed on inside a Star of David and not the two-armed one of the Protoculture.

I found this in the local paper. This was a company that sells computers, for one of the systems I noticed this:

wow. how fast is that?!

Unfortunately, it's booby trapped. whenever a virus threat comes along, you lose control of the computer and wipe out the systems of all other computers in its network.
