Macross Autographs, Signatures and Sketches

Recommended Posts

Haven't really checked this section out before and was surprised to see that we don't really have a thread about autographs and signatures.

I decided to start this thread as I had the good fortune to meet Haruhiko Mikimoto in the flesh recently when he was invited to my University to give a talk about the production process of Anime and Manga. Being the Macross fan that I am, I brought down a plethora of artbooks and merchandise for him to sign. Thankfully, he was extremely obliging and I was able to get him to sign everything.

So, we have:

Mylene Cel and Sketch

Macross Gold Book

Macross DYRL: This is Animation

Macross 7: This is Animation

It isn't much, but it is definitely the pride of my Macross collection. (^.^)

Another autograph that I got a few years back was from May'n when she came down to the very first Anime Festival Asia in Singapore.

What Macross autographs/signaturs/sketches do you guys have in your collection?

Not much...but they're special in their own way.

-a couple of Mari Ijima autographs from a Bay Area event and last year's MW CON 10. :)

-Megumi Nakajima and May'n signed the base's for their Megahouse figures at last year's AX 2010. :)

I'd love to get Kawamori, Mikimoto, or Itano's one day.

I love collecting autographs at cons.

Mari Iijima has signed just about every Minmay related item I own and then some. I've been meeting her at events since 2001.

My Macross boxset is signed by her, Hiroyuki Yamaga of Gainax, and Noboru Ishiguro.

I also have a bunch of Robotech autographs, if those count, including Tony Oliver, Richard Epcar, Reba West and Carl Mecek.

I probably have more that I got unrelated to Macross, like a Noriko Takaya sketch from DYRL's Fumio Iida. I would've gotten a Minmay this year had I not gotten out of line at Fanime. I do have a Sheryl Nome sketch from the guy that animated the Lion opening. Fanime was great for sketches this year.

I'll post pics if I get the chance.

I have a CD signed by Mari Iijima, as well as one of the Yellow Submarine Minmay doll cases. I have a concert ticket that Megumi Nakajima signed, as well as the Macross Frontier dual CD case. I have May'n's autograph on the same dual CD, as well as in the Sheryl Nome visual collection book. That's all I have.

Well here's a picture of me and Mikimoto at 2001 Anime Expo. He signed and sketched minmay in that book I'm holding. I just gotta take a pix of it when I get home! Oh and I was able to barely get Kawamori's autograph at the 2002 Anime Expo. He was doing sketches for some people but I got there too late. Oh well.

I take it you can't buy that Tenjin VF poster outside of Japan? Been looking around but no luck.

Hi guys,

I know autographs are hard to come by, but would anyone be willing to sell me some if you are willing to part with your extras?

I have a Mari Ijima, and now looking for 1 from Kawamori & Mikimoto-san autographed items.

Have posted this in the Wanted thread as well.

TQ.

I think I might have Mikimoto's signature on a Gunbuster book. I got it a long time ago. I couldn't read or understand Japanese back then. I need to take a look. It's boxed away somewhere.

I've had this cel for a long time. I can't even remember where I bought it. It may have been here or on ebay.IMG_3231_zps57896928.jpg

I believe the two autographs in black are Tomo Sakurai (Mylene) and Urara Takano (Veffidas and Akiko) I don't know who's autograph is in gold. Does anyone know?

I have the Macross Vol.1 No. English Adaption comic book signed by Carl Macek. I'm wondering how much it would be worth.

I do have an original signed Mikimoto pencil sketch....I'm not too interested in autograph collecting in general, so I think I'm good for now....thanks for pointing it out...it's a nice shammy sketch...

np! it looks like no bids. i guess it's priced too high

Not Macross sketch... but still by the Great Haruhiko Mikimoto. Got this beauty when he was in Singapore back in 2002. =D

Hope to meet more people in person and get their autograph.
