Macross in the weirdest places

Recommended Posts

That's hilarious, thanks for posting that! I'm pretty sure that "YF-19" is fan made, and not from any official Macross animation, because its canards are facing the wrong way.

And huge ventral fins. But it’s not trolling I think - it’s a homage.

Nah. They're going to let this one slide. It's the YF-19's, not VF-1's. ;)

I was just browsing Ebay for some Macross model kits, some times a good deal pops up and then I saw this on a random auction. B))

Hi here! I usually post in toys section but surely I'll start following this thread. This is my son's recent acquisition

Danth, any idea what the reasoning is behind this?  That's just all kinds of random (but cool).

Arby’s is always on point with their Twitter game. A few days ago they had a Gundam on it...The is the first Macross reference they’ve made.

They also did a lot of Street Fighter based promotions.  I guess tweeting it isn't that expensive a form of advertising, but it is interesting:

This is incredibly inappropriate and also highly NSFW but also stupid funny to me and it is both Macross and weird so it's technically relevant.

I just can't stop laughing at the TRANSformer comment.

It is definitely straight off of Stardock's own page, and not a case of Kotaku being Kotaku and putting up a fan-mockup as a game screenshot.

Either Stardock are demonstrating a unit editor and enjoy tickling the dragon's tail, or they REALLY enjoy tickling the dragon's tail.

This is the Boeing X-51 Waverider hypersonic experimental aircraft. 

Is it me or does it actually bear a striking resemblance to Hikaru's Fan Racer?

Not quite Macross but near enough to say the producers or concept team must be TF or Macross fans.

Transforming planes that help people, all have a Gerwalk mode.

 

Its obviously aimed at kids and cashing in on the movie franchise of Cars and Budgie the helicopter.

I see this as an excellent route into Macross for my little one. My wife is not keen on Anime, shes one of those who still thinks cartoons = kids.

When those shots were doing the rounds on Facebook IIRC it was mentioned that venue is in Chile... South America's got kind of a China-like reputation for not really giving a damn about IP laws, tho I have mainly heard that in relation to software and video piracy.

Hulu appears to have picked up Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka, which I mentioned way back when has a brief appearance by Colonel Jeffrey Wilder from Macross Frontier.

I'm from Chile, and it's not like people dont give a damn about IP laws, but here it's like: "you can do it as long as no one sues you"
