Ron5864′s Photoreal Toy Valkyries

We saw Ron’s amazing dioramas at the previous Macross World Conventions before, and now he’s using his awesome talents to put these depictions of his amazingly detailed valkyrie toys in flight. It’s either that or he knows about some secret base that builds actual valkyries that can fly and he can somehow stay close enough to take pictures.

“Macross: Do You Remember Love” & “Macross Frontier Movies 1+2″: Triple bill theatrical screening in July; plus “DYRL” TV Special to air

This has been known for a while but I figured I ought to front-page it sooner rather than later, plus new details keep being added every so often.

To celebrate its much-hyped Blu-ray debut next month, “Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love”, the movie that showed impressionable 80s kids that “you can still fight when you’re drunk” * is back on the BIG SCREEN, yes, in Technicolor and all that jazz, for a limited time only.  To differentiate it from the last Tokyo screening in 2010, this time they are using the newly remixed 5.1 channel soundtrack, so you can experience it in a completely fresh way.

Not only that, but it’s running back-to-back with screenings of the two “Macross Frontier” movies (“Itsuwari no Utahime/The False Songstress” and “Sayonara no Tsubasa/The Wings of Farewell”), to round off a monster triple-bill TRIANGLER of a Macross movie marathon.

So bring your friends, your mega-size popcorn and your deodorant, because we’re in for a dusk-till-dawn test of hardcore sci-fi-robot-action-romance-all-singing-all-dancing-space-opera-schoolgirl-slapping endurance!  “The women must not penetrate!”

Shinjuku Wald 9 (katakana-pronounced as “Baruto 9″, bizzarely) will be hosting this triple screening on three nights, details follow. Continue reading
