I hate your collections, @Kicker773. Hahaha! :lol:

Nice set of Thunderbolts and Angel Birds by the way. ;) :good:

Not to derail the thread, but aren't those prices reaching a point where someone could just make one (3D printing etc.) for less than that?  I know for some collectors, only the genuine article will do, but you would think the fact that someone could actually make one of those for cheaper would put a ceiling on the price.

Or maybe those prices aren't grounded in any sort of current market reality.

Edit: I just noticed they are graded, so this is definitely in the realm of the MISB type collector, not the person that is going to open and enjoy the plastic itself, so that makes more "sense," I guess.

Well you can make a 3D print out of just the USS Flag deck @HardlyNever for cheaper (if you have access to the software and the machine that is).

Or you can get a Trackpad from here - http://robotoybase.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=152_203&product_id=4255 and Macro size it to a larger scale for your HMR collection and 1/60 valks (possibly a few 1/48 as well).

Hey Kicker, just curious, do you still have your entire VF-1 1/48 scale collection? I remember you having virtually everyone ever made plus some customs. 

Also, the Airshow Diorama that is possible with all those Angel Birds. B))

Yes. I didn’t post pics because I got them organized like the previous pics so did t think anyone want to see the same ones. I was gonna take pics all of them in valk modes in the living room when I dust. All laid out 100+ not including the angel birds and 1 still sealed copy of each excluding amors. It would have be nice to lay them out on a carrier looking mat.

Still have the customs as well...

Awesome, good to know they are all still there plus the Armor & customs. To have a Carrier shaped/looking mat would be sweet for taking pics & display! My personal Fantasy/Day Dream one day is to actually have a full scale Asuka II Carrier large enough for the 1/60 Mac Zero toys! 

Again, thank you for sharing your collection with us, it never gets old. B))

I only have the Asuka on these scale. I think it’s the Asuka my Macross encyclopedia is not in front of me so I can’t say for certain.

Wow! I didn't know those Macross Ships even existed as kits, very cool & two no less! 

Imagine this in 1/60 scale.... One can dream.

It's amazing how many kits are out there both plastic & resin. 

Just for Schnitz & Giggles, did you ever purchase any of the Evo Toys VF-2SS? I was just tinkering with mine.

I bought one, just one because of all the issues it came with it. 

I got the Silvie & Faerie squad yet that was it (fingers crossed that Bandai does a DX someday). The HMR 2SS is much better even if it's smaller.

Now that you mention MacII, I almost forgot I had picked up an unbuilt metal siren Valk mode, gotta go look for it.

Happy Memorial Day weekend, gotta spend that day dusting the DC and CMS figs...

What was the comment?

I consider myself a Macross fan.... even though I am not that big on shows like Macross Zero, 2, or Delta.

Bingo!

It was an innocent comment on a picture that was posted. It was an image of the old Yamato office with no caption. And I commented and? Because I was curious to what they wanted to say about the image, and then it went downhill after that. 

But on a lighter note I have to dust these. It just got real...

So... I was wondering, what cameras do you guys use to take some of those gorgeous pictures of your toys? I have been using my cell phone camera, which sucks at it, and am kind of wanting to be able to take some nice shots.

I’m just using my iPhone 7 Plus. Want to invest on some used DSLR but budget goes somewhere else. :rolleyes:

If you don't want to get too crazy but want pro level quality and adjustability, I'd recommend looking into the micro four thirds mirrorless cameras. I use a Sony Nex-5. There are a lot of great ones on the market.

If you want good pictures, make sure you have good lighting. A desk-lamp or two with bright daylight LEDs improve the quality of shots quite a bit, even with a phone camera.

Yep, camera tech is getting really good even in phones. As always, the person behind the camera is more important than the equipment and lighting is always key.
