Those look a lot like VF-27 toes on the back of the wing engines. Also a vernier ring or thrust reverser doohicky just forward of them. I agree with Sanity is Optional that the outboard engines look like the lower legs, but I'm not sure where the arms go.

It really isn't AI, it's just a bunch of upscale and filtering scripts. It really does a disservice to the animation. The original film scan has all the detail you're gonna get out of it. Any amount of filtering you're either removing detail or pulling it out of your ass, both of which are detrimental to the look.

Hmm I seem to catching more details in the 4k version. Especially details in the shadow areas and some highlights seem more controlled.

Not saying its superior to the original, as I would be the last person to want to upscale everything.

To me, art needs to be appreciated as its created not improved.

Still, am not denying that this so called 4k version looks great to me, but i think definitely it has to be seen with a HD capable monitor/TV. 

Tech does play a role here.

Personally I prefer the various series with music by Yoko Kanno (Plus, Frontier).

7 wasn't bad, and would probably rate higher if I hadn't marathoned it listening to Planet Dance over and over and over and over and over.

Delta, the music was Jpop, and decent Jpop (as far as I could tell), but it just never meshed with the action on screen the way Frontier and Plus did.

The series could be condensed to 1 season and it would have been much better rather than  stretching it out to flog the music for merchandizing...

That's pretty much why I purchased the first movie, since it did a pretty good job of that. :p  Some of the music was pretty okay, but Frontier set an almost impossible standard for it to meet.

That looks way different, but kinda YF-21/vf-4/vf-14/variable glaug vibe going for it

Yeah,  definitely looks like a next gen AI drone with a total VF-4 vibe. 

Some fan service for the VF-4 fans out there....

The cockpit reminds of the Tin Man cockpit from "Stealth"

If anyone was wondering how popular Frontier still is.. A new Macross Frontier key visual, with sound, has been revealed. Not a teaser. Titled Labyrinth Of Time. To be double billed with the new Delta movie..

I doubt anyone was unclear but more importantly that news dropped a couple weeks back and was linked above a couple times.

It's only known it's a short ahead of the Delta movie. I imagine like the shorts with Pixar movies.

You just replied this back in Feb (below) after Tochiro posted Frontier's Labyrinth of Time news link. :rolleyes:

Bigwest Begins Global Release of Animation “Macross” Series from April 9

Bigwest Co., Ltd. has announced the release of all works that are part of the “Macross” franchise made after 1987 to a worldwide audience from April 9, 2021. This not only includes the “Macross Delta” film currently in production, but all new material that follows it as well. This is not limited to anime titles, but also includes games, toys, live performances and other content and merchandising as well. The company has prepared an official YouTube channel as well as a Twitter account for its fans.

★“The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012” Streaming for Limited Time★
(※For outside of Japan only)


Bigwest has messages from members of the main creative staff behind “Macross,” Mr. Shoji Kawamori and Mr. Haruhiko Mikimoto, that the company would like to share with fans.

Shoji Kawamori:
For creators like me, our work only comes to life for when it is viewed by people.
It seems that the time has just started to move, after years and years of stillness.
I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to all the people involved who have helped bring Macross to the world.
Last but not least, I am deeply thankful for all the support and understanding from the fans around the world.
Together, aiming for further freedom, and a brand new deculture.
TO THE WORLD, TO THE GALAXY, Listen to our MACROSS song!!!!!!

Haruhiko Mikimoto:
Back when I was living in uncertainty, unsure whether or not I should become a professional creator or not, Studio Nue invited me to participate in their project and while I’m sure I caused some consternation for them, I was a member of the original creative team for the project that eventually was realized as Super Dimension Fortress Macross.
I was hesitant about making a career out of this field, but the Macross franchise was instrumental in compelling me hard to enter into this field of work that I do today, and for that it is a very special title to me.
On a personal level, I was frustrated not only over the fact that the global reach of the anime titles were impeded, but so too were all the production design sheets, the illustrations and the comics that were created through the involvement of many people.
I am very happy to hear that the situation has been sorted out enough that audiences around the world would be able to fully access all this material.
I humbly ask fans to please celebrate not only the anime titles that continue to evolve and change with each new series, but also support other material that is created to help promote the core titles, such as illustrations and comics, all of which are realized through the hard work on the part of myself and other creators!!
