From the far flung past of September 2012 comes… EPISODE 6 of MACROSS SPEAKERPODCAST!

Hear what Miyatake has to say about Macross on Bluray, Richard’s encounter with Aya Endo, why Chie shouldn’t wear pink, and Renato’s first hand account of Noboru Ishiguro’s Memorial Service.

Also debuting this episode is the very first MACROSS VOX POP. These are small, 5 minute interviews that members of the cast do with fellow Macross fans that they stumble across in Japan.

“Macross FB7: Listen to my Song!”: views, thoughts and experiences

So… A week and a half has passed since the latest theatrical Macross release.  Why is there no front page write-up?  Well, there are probably a multitude of reasons.  Number one being, unfortunately, that this movie is barely a movie at all.

However, that doesn’t mean that we should deny it any presence here, nor that we ignored its release.

Read on for the full lowdown on this… thing, in spoilerific detail!  You have been warned!

(Yeah… Spoilers for those who have never watched Macross 7 — otherwise…)

Check out’s article on our 2012 Convention. Thanks guys!


MacrossWorld Convention 2012 Wrap Up

Oct. 21, 2012 – I woke up that day thinking, “Hmmm. MacrossWorld Con is today, I should get started on that 1D custom and take it there.” Two hours later I was done and walked out the door.

Wait… that was the dream I had before I actually woke up.”

Oct. 21, 2012 – I woke up that day thinking, “Oh crap! It’s 10am? WTF? I stayed up until 4am painting the figures and putting all the final detail on the 1D. I still have to clear coat the figures and glue some final pieces.” At 12pm, an hour after the con started I was still gluing some parts. The phone rings…It’s Bigkid, must be some con emergency or else why would he be calling?


“Hey, we brought your binaltechs to the con instead of waiting for the TF meet, how much do you want to sell the Smokescreen for?”



“I got glue all over my iphone… let me call you back!”



“Awww, crap!”

Heading Over

It’s early Sunday afternoon, why is it gridlocked? Freakin’ L.A. traffic.

This year I decided to not be a part of the MWCon committee, so I wasn’t required to be there at a certain time. Actually I decided two years ago that it was too much work for me and that I would just sit back and enjoy the next one. I’d like to think that that was the reason we didn’t have a con in 2011, but the fact of the matter is that Kirik just had a kid and certain responsibilities were just building up for the rest of the guys. Maybe they were caught up in the moment of the 30th Anniversary of Macross and decided they wanted to do it once more this year. But in my case, I didn’t have a good time at the 2010 Convention even though everyone was saying it was the best con ever. It was certainly the most successful. We had amazing displays, a great location in the heart of UCLA, more than doubled the attendance. In fact, the hall was super crowded like never before.

So it was decided that we were going to do a smaller event this year. A call back to the days where we just sat around, ate crappy pizza and talked toys, models and customs. Sounds good to me.
