Macross General SCOOPUDA thread

Oww, CG Sheryl is even worse than CG Agent Smith...

I don't think they were looking to make the CG photo realistic. It looks like they mapped out May'n's dance moves for the song and then transferred them to a Shery CG model...

Arrgh! After getting all excited from the images >.< It's a serialized novel.

Anyhow, new stuff:

VF-19EF Karibaan

A VF-19E monkey model. The mass produced VF-19E of the Frontier Fleet.

Blah blah blah SMS, prototype EX-Gear. Uses the GU-17A. 154 craft were made and they were mostly deployed by SMS. Does it need mentioning that the story's set in 2058?

Well take the second most popular VF in Macross history, couple it with the latest Macross hit and viola - more merchandizing money... ;)

VF-19EF Karibaan

Just noticed this... Talos suggests that it may be intended to be read as "Caliburn".

EDIT: An interesting conflict emerges... the "leader" model is informally known as the VF-19ES, the same designation as the project phaeton fold booster custom model. Probably not canon, since it's a novel and all, but interesting nonetheless... having these VF-19EF/ES Caliburn units with prototype EX-Gear being used not only by SMS (who got most of them), but also by NUNS Special Forces from the Frontier fleet... a special squad called the "Round Table". Guess that solidifies the "Caliburn" name a bit, doesn't it?

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe I have stumbled across what is quite possibly the most awesome piece of Macross Frontier merchandise ever made. And by awesome I mean 'only in Japan.'

Now, last year, a Chinese restaurant did a limited run of Ranka's famous 'Maguro-man.' But when I originally saw that gag in Frontier, only one thing came to mind.....

....breast pudding.

Breast pudding for those who dont know, is a souvineer in serveral areas of Japan. No, its not made of real breasts (unfortunately), its 2 puddings placed in cardboard holder which normally looks like an anime/manga character.

Take this 'set' that I got for a souvineer a while back as an example.

First theres the package.

Then you open halfway (eegads Im starting to feel dirty)

post-9325-129164114295_thumb.jpg

And then....well, Im sure you get the picture.

So what does this have to do with Macross Frontier? Well, while at my local Animate yesterday, I came across THIS package.

post-9325-129164115965_thumb.jpg

Oh no...could it be.....

post-9325-129164116833_thumb.jpg

IT IS!!!!!!

So, now we all know what it felt like to be in Altos position during that rather infamous scene of Macross Frontier!

I don't suppose they're tuna flavoured, right?:D

I really have to add: Wow, they really do take their "authentic" merchandising seriously in Japan.

Looks like it.

"new valkyrie for the Macross F theatrical version".

"1/100 scale plastic model, YF-29 Aruto's craft (tentative)", 1260 yen, by Bandai.

Says something about the fighter configuration being based on the VF-25 and forward canards. Text is really too small to read.

Looks like the offspring of the SV-51/VF-27/VF-25/VF-19.

It does... but the odd part is that it really looks like a SW-XAII Schneegans from VF-Experiment.

My thoughts exactly.

Not liking at all on first impression. Maybe it will grow on me.

I think I like the new VF-19EF much more than the YF-29.

For a series that ended in 2008 Sheryl Nome's popularity sure has remained STRONG.

She's placed in most of Newtype's TOP TEN female lists for two years and counting.

Macross Chronology from Anime.Net,

December 2010:

"Repairs to Britai (Vrlitwhai) Kridanik's flagship are completed, and it is recommissioned as the first battleship of the new U.N. Forces space fleet. Miclone processing rate of Zentradi exceeds 50%."

Salute to Britai and miclonization~!

Yeah, finding myself getting concerned that Kawamori is getting very close to "jumping the shark" on new VF designs for this series...

What magazine was it featured in?

YF-29 for the next movie?

Doubtful IMO, it'll be more merchandise like the YF-25 was. A background cameo shot and that'll probably be it...

Here's a better quality image of the YF-29 1/100 model:

I kind of like this new Valkyrie, but i need to see the Battroid mode first to give a complete opinion.
