Thanks no3ljm!

Hopefully it's fairly comprehensive collection of the older design images.

It's Macross. And I guess, that's the only reason why this will be good. ^_^

At least there is no mandatory "one to read....one to keep mint and unread...and one just in case"...rule on Macross book collecting right?  :unknw:

Got a 'payment notice' too from HLJ for the Variable Fighter Designers book. :rolleyes:

I still find it weird how the HLJ payment works nowadays. Now the item is being paid without me logging it in. Scary. :ph34r:

An absolute must-have for any Macross fan...from the first page to the last, every page is filled with Macross line art....best bang for the buck since the Kawamori and Miyatake Design Works books...

You buy now!!!

Those arians were great in Macross.

But remind me, where they from Ares or ancient Persian?

On the fence about buying this one - mostly because I already have the majority of the line art in other books.  :p

For those that need more convincing, check out Amazon JP for some picts of the book's interior: https://www.amazon.co.jp/マクロス-ヴァリアブルファイター-デザイナーズノート-GA-Graphic/dp/4797393696

 

Most of the other sites I checked out had the same, or similar content.  However, this one is intriguing: http://www.amiami.jp/top/detail/detail?gcode=MED-BOOK-010579

If I'm not mistaken, that looks like line art for the VF-11 drone that appeared in Macross Plus! (lower right)

Yeah....I think the book contains additional line art that may have not been published in other books.....but may have been published in the various booklets included in DVD's and BD's...

Almost every VF from every era of Macross is represented in lineart form. 

Since the book also contains the most recent Vfs from M0, MF, and MD...it is well worth adding to your book collection to have them all presented in one book.

Corner of the package was wet and  tearing! :o

..

Feverishly opened it up to find the corner safe and dry! 

Must have just happened so no chance of any damage to occur...i got it of amazon.jp, so i thk it should be covered anyway if there is such damage...

 

Just have some time for quick snaps!

What is that extra missiled, turreted Glaug?  I should be more specific, not the Variable Glaug (is that a variable?) and not the Glaug-hybrid.

The Glaug variant there is marked up only as "Super Glaug" in the few mentions I've seen.

The Regult with the big missile rack is the ZBP-104 Regult Type-104 (read "One Zero Four") missile spec, a New UN Forces analogue to the Esbeliben Regult missile light and heavy missile variants in the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross series and DYRL? movie.  The regular (non-missile) version shows up at the start of the first episode of Macross Delta.

The one with the arms and Quimeliquola Queadluun-Rau-inspired backpack is the ZBP-106 Regult Type-105 (read "One Zero Six").

So all of those are Delta versions?  I only remember seeing the ZBP-106 type in the first episode.  Not the other Regult (I meant Regult in my first question) and certainly not the "Super Glaug."

yeah...I recall the Regults and the funky Q-Rau/Regult from the first episode too....then the singing started and I forgot what else may have been in that episode...or the ones after!

It may be time for a second screening of Delta for me....
