Macross Sitajiki (pencilboard)

Recommended Posts

Will be posting up a few more later. I actually do know what they are made for but when I first saw them I just thought they were over sized trading cards.

Just noticed I spelled Shitajiki wrong.

You're probably in the majority in your initial assessment: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=27099 . As far as I know, it's still a "card poster" to thegunny. Though, if you're collecting them, they basically are over-sized trading cards.

I have a few myself; maybe I'll try to post 'em when I've got the time.

I still see you don't get out much. You really should, the real world isn't all that bad.

The Wikipedia link is useful: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shitajiki .

Well, the real world is pretty much only concerned about Michael Jackson's death right now, so I'm probably not missing too much. :rolleyes: (There's also the Honduran coup, Obama's renewed Russian relations, etc., but MJ still pretty much has taken the cake recently.)

I'm shocked that a man of your knowledge hasn't suggested this site

I didn't want to bring up Pencilboard.Net since it basically has all that we could ever post already listed in its archives. The Macross section is perhaps too extensive. :p

Added some more, Pencilboard.Net does have allot. I'm still guessing there are some other there they don't have.

I'd say so as the site hasn't been updated in a while.

If you're going to talk about Macross Frontier stuff, i.e. anything produced after it stopped being updated, it's not going to have it. However, for, say, Macross TV/DYRL, it's probably around 95-99.9% complete. (I'd say there might be a couple IMAI or ARII ones that are essentially advertisements for their products that aren't specifically Macross, but the ones specifically for Macross are essentially covered.)

I wasn't sure if these belonged here or in the modern trading cards thread... these are medium sized plastic cards for the Macross Frontier movie. I think some shops have it listed as "Visual Bromide", but I'm not sure what that means or if its a fuzzy translation. They came in individual plastic sleeves and can be purchased by the box-set or in vending machines (I think).

Theres also a regular set for the series, but I can't get to those right now...

Since someone already posted their Takatoku Toys shitajiki and this thread has not had any love in almost 4 years...I'll post something new...

Old-school ARII shitajiki

They are nice, but I sold off most a few years back.  I may have a few more left but never have the time to look for them.  I will probably just hold onto the IMAI/ARII/TAKATOKU shitajikis

I have a bunch of these in my collection from Macross and other series. I never understood the use and got them for the artwork to display.

There called "pencilboards" for a reason....:rolleyes:

Yeah but over here we would just use a notebook or desk. Why use something like that with good artwork? And the ones I have aren't that sturdy either.

That's just it....when produced they were not intended for "over here"....thus your confusion on their practicality 

These were meant for grade school kids....they were meant to be mass consumables not cherished treasures....
