Official Macross posters

255 posts in this topic

I know these have been put up, but I was cleaning out some of the posters I have stuck in tubing, and put them in the book. So, here's the added ones. One is Robotech, I know, and one isn't directly Macross, but very cool posters.

The poster came from the Gold book, and was in there forever. I have two of the poster, so I decided to open it up, and let the folds relax a bit. These pics were taken right after going into the archive book.

Ah, so that poster came from the Gold book, I was wondering where it came from. I got mine from a neighbor in our previous place. He heard that I was a Macross nut, and sold me the poster for PhP 200 (US$1 = PhP35 or somewhere at that rate at that time). Was that a good deal? Assuming it was a legit poster...

So, roughly about $7 USD??? Not bad at all. I like the matte finish on it. I got another poster today at Los Angeles Anime Expo, and may pick up another one. I'll post those up and the Frontier promo poster I just got. Running out of space in my poster book.

Jason, those are all amazing, thanks for sharing!

Murphy, I have that poster too! Actually, mine is printed on a thick board that I suppose they used for promotional store displays back in the day, the problem is I have no idea where to put it. :wacko: I have a picture of it in some other thread.

Since I just put up my posters with blu-tak, they often fall off. I take that as my cue to rotate them around every so often.

Today I swapped out some more, so here's my update: :)

No points for picking the odd one out :p

That's awesome that you have the angled ceiling. It looks like it helps with the ambiance with putting up poster art. When I get my place, I look forward to framing a couple of these posters.

Thanks. It's not really that convenient, though, since the angle makes it easy for the posters to just droop off. BTW I have that Macross Plus poster back in the UK, I love it, most of the Plus ones have this really stylish aesthetic going on.

Macross 7 TV promo poster on ebay......seems original/legit.......

http://www.ebay.com/...8#ht_821wt_1270

The only thing I am worried about is the fact that he has 9 of them available. I'm not a big fan of reprints.

That said, it does say that it's original. I may get one.

Maybe.....

Here is one for the video release on Yahoo Japan......considerably pricier....but it's the same graphic.....

http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b105294746

Any Macross poster experts care to chime in on whether the ebay poster is legit?

I went ahead and bought one because it reminded me of this one that I have from the original series:

Quick question.

The Macross Zero B2 sized poster with the VF-0 hovering in Gerwalk Mode.

Did they make them single and double sided?

I haven't seen a double sided poster of that, but if there is one out there, I guess I have another poster to look for.

I noticed a two sided one by xstoys here: http://www.macrosswo...ndpost&p=705343

The one I have is almost the same (it has ads for the 1/72 VF-0S, VF-0S Plushie, 1/48 VF-1A, and two albums at the bottom), and only one sided.

Are any posters coming out for the anniversary? I think there was a small one with the DYRL review posted here on MW.

My favorite. :wub:

You sir, have a very cool collection. It's not only a thowback but a realization of just how big marketing was for to promote Macross.

Macross 30th Anniversary Fever is still in full swing!

http://page15.auctio...tion/t274010269

Saw that poster at anime expo this year, and passed it up. He was selling it for $120, but I'd rather have a DYRL movie poster in that size, or the Pachinko game itself.

Apparently it is one of the harder ones to find....Anything else interesting at the anime expo...macross-related? Any cels?

BTW...which DYRL movie poster version are you looking for?

I picked this up a couple of years ago at Animazement and am now wondering if it is a bootleg. Any help would be appreciated.
