Macross General SCOOPUDA thread

:lol:

That would be a cool watch for my kid or I would probably get one for myself if it just had the kite symbol without saying Robotech.  Not at that price though.

As indicated by sh9000 here:  http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/29133-macross-books/?page=19&tab=comments#comment-1419680 , Great Mechanics.G 2018 Autumn features a major Macross article, and a gorgeous VF-1/SDF-1 (TV ver.) painting on the cover.

The good news: 26 pages dedicated to Macross, with interviews with Shoji Kawamori and Kazutaka Miyatake.

The bad news: as it's the 36th anniversary of Macross, the article is dedicated to the SDFM TV series.

While there is some mecha (it is a mecha-themed magazine after-all), it's all of stuff that we've seen before.  The only new images are rough sketches by Mr. Kawamori and Mr. Miyatake showing the evolution into what became the "Breast Fighter" (which was itself, ultimately replaced with the VF-1 Valkyrie).  Interestingly, one of those designs is called "Aquarius".

That's a bad news?

I don't mind as long as we get more Macross songs/concerts--no longer having high hopes for good story and thankfully I'm not into getting those Delta DX Chogokins :lol:

Is that good?

It’s pretty good. It ended up having around 25k in sales. So it’s pretty obvious why BW is still holding on to the Delta iteration a bit longer.

Wonder how much of that is because it's the first movie to release (in Japan) with English subtitles (excepting the special edition of Frontier's movies).

I know I bought a copy, and I assume I was not alone.

As some of you may have heard, Shoji Kawamori appeared at Otakon earlier this year. He gave two panel presentations: one on designs and original concepts and another one on the history of Macross. A transcription of his first panel has been posted on MW's mainpage and the second one will be published at a later date. Enjoy!

This was very cool. 

I love that Kawamori kit bashes LEGO to make his Mecha prototypes.

For those not in Japan, scroll to the last entry 日本国外, so that you don't have to choose a prefecture. It means outside of Japan.

Edit: For gender, first radio button is 'Male', second radio button is 'Female'.

My choices:

Favorite Anime: SDF Macross (would have also chosen Macross Frontier)

Favorite Character: Sheryl. I thought if I picked Sheryl we might see more of her :D

Favorite Mecha: VF31C. I had a problem with this one, it was so hard to choose! My choices were Focker's VF1S, Miriya's red VF1J, Hikaru's VF1D, and of course Mirage's VF31C. But I like the VF31C's color the best so I went with it. I think this was the hardest to vote on lol

Favorite Song: I also had a hard time with this one. I went with Northern Cross.

Thanks for posting this @seti88 It made for a more interesting Friday night :D

Also, according to the site the results will be known in May, via BS premium live broadcast. Hopefully folks in Japan will help us know the winners.

And for those needing to think about their answers, fear not! Survey will be open until April 21, 11:59 pm.
