EDIT: Bandai 1/72 Transformable VF-1A/S Now on Pre-Order w/ even more pictures added.

 

bandai 1-72 vf-1 battroidWMI’m surprised to see Bandai’s new 1/72 VF-1 triple changing kit on preorder already. We’ve been following their updates ever since they announced it late October of last year. I’m not surprised because it seems that it’s development has been fast, but to announce it while it’s so off model from anything we’ve seen since the 1/55 or the those Banpresto 1/72 we used to buy for less than $10. From the huge head to the large upper leg that is the intakes in Fighter mode, I’ve never really expected to see anything like this at this day and age. The 1/55s I can’t or would ever complain about, but in 2013 and on the heels of Hasegawas and Yamato releases, it’s pretty mind boggling how a major company like this can’t or doesn’t seem to understand a well documented design. And this has all been after the improvements that they wrote about on their project blog. Sometimes it makes me wonder whether or not bandai uses engineers that has seen Macross shows or books before. If it doesn’t work then we’ll blame it on how people don’t really like Macross anymore or how the economy sucks for toy companies that support this franchise, especially after the whole Yamato debacle. If it does work then maybe we’re doomed to  Macross products that are off model and pretty much dismisses line art. Hopefully there’s still a version 3 to this rendition before it actually goes on sale, or it’s a lose-lose scenario for Macross collectors

Mylene Night #03 Report: Chie sings Macross Plus

1

February 2nd, 2013 was a date that will be remembered for many things. For one, it was the birthday of Mylene Jenius (-18!). Of course, this meant that Chie Kajiura held another one of her ‘Mylene Night’ concerts to commemorate Mylene’s birthday. Most importantly though, February 2nd 2013 was the day that Chie irrefutably claimed the title of Macross cover queen, something that most people had previously attributed to Megumi Nakajima.

How? Two words. Macross Plus.

New Macross Merchandise (03/15)

The Oshare Macross Exhibit will be opening in Kyoto for the first time ever from March 23rd to March 31st. This means two things: (1)Some sort of signing event (in this case, a Hidetaka Tenjin autograph session for the first 100 customers who spend 3000yen or more on opening day) and (2) NEW MERCHANDISE!

One of the most interesting new items is a new 3D poster based on a piece by Hidetaka Tenjin. While this piece isn’t new, it has apparently undergone some ‘retouches’ for this latest version. The 3D poster will cost 2100yen and will be sold exclusively at the event (for now)
