Premiered at the Bandai Namco booth at the Tokyo Game Show earlier today, the official FB7 website has just posted the first trailer for Macross FB7.
A new series of articles on the late Noboru Ishiguro has just begun to be serialized on Japan Cinema.
By the way, I took the above photograph myself and it is probably my favourite photo of Ishiguro-san ever!
You can read part 1, focusing on the life of Ishiguro, here:
The links at the end lead right here to Macross World; my intention is to spread the knowledge of Japanese animation across various platforms. I hope you enjoy the article. More to come!
Sorry about the lack of toy and models updates… aside from the VF-4G, The 19F and P from Yamato and the find it or suck it Bandai exclusives, there’s hasn’t been much on the toy front. Hasegawa did announce a reissue of their Macross Plus 1/72 Thunderbolt model kits, this time with Fastpacks. So if you missed it the first time, you get a bonus.
Bandai has been hinting on an another Macross 30th Anniversary announcement at the next Hobby show. If it’s a model then it’s most likely at the All Japan Mokei Show at Mukahari, Chiba on October 13 and 14. If it’s a toy then maybe the announcement will be at the show at their Tamashi Nations Collectors Department on Oct 26-28. At that same show will be an exclusive recolor of the Figuarts Zero “Shine of The Valkyrie” Sheryl, also known as the Shining Blue Sheryl. It will be available for 4500円.
Rebecca Silverman over at Anime News Network has had the enviable opportunity to talk with famed Macross character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto.
