Misc Macross News!

Well most of this news is already familiar to those who frequent the MW Forums, but just in case you don't have time to dig through all that here is a quick summary of Macross news!

1) Bothtec will be releasing a new Macross Computer game next month titled "Macross VO'. It features network play(yes-if it is compatible with US Windows there WILL be MW Squadron battles!) and is very similar to the space fights in the DYRL movie.

2) Hasegawa has released their 1/72 VF-1A Super Valkyrie! They are releasing a weapons set later this month, and a Strike Valkyrie model next month! Guess what they are considering next? Possibly the YF-21!

3) Nichimo continues to churn out their great 1/200 Macross model reissues! Pick them up-you get 2 per box(only 500 yen each!)

4) Studio Half-Eye released more pictures of their upcoming Variable VF-11 model

5) The 1/72 Yamato YF-19 is coming out in VFX-2 game colors in a couple months.

6) Animeigo continues to impress us with their Macross Restoration-check out and for more information!

7) Kevin Lam from Valkyrie Exchange reports there might be some scoops coming from Toynami regarding their upcoming VF-1 line in the next 2 months

8) Shoji Kawamori's Macross Design Works Art book was supposed to come out this month-but it appears to have been delayed again. Fans won't want to miss this one I'm sure. I keep checking Egan Loo's Macross Compendium for the latest date and get disappointed every time..arghh.
