  1. I have to admit, there was some stuff that was out there. I just looked past it because the series really struck me as being more hard-core. Yeah it kind of got wierd or lame near the end, but every series seems to have their quirks. For me, in macross 7, it was the playing the instruments thing. In Frontier, it was the speakers on the VF, as well as the singing at times. I just don't know why people couldn't look past some things in Zero, but in Frontier they seem to let everything by. I guess it just comes with the territory. Maybe that's why everybody hates Zero. Because there wasn't too
  2. They all have something to do with one another.It's just that some people are referencing other series as a benchmark. They aren't going on any different tangents. They are simply pointing out some of the aliknesses and differences and what they do and don't like. It's what I asked for. The main subject is Frontier, but it was me making the comparissons in the first place. Blame me if you want. I just wanted peoples views. I am very interested in what people have to say. By the way, who referenced the DX toy line? If they did, it really didn't take over any subject. Take it easy.
  3. You should check out the VF-100 line that is coming up. They look pretty sick, and are somewhat affordable at about $50.00 $60.00. Have faith. You'll get some of them in time.
  4. Episode 12 did have some cool stuff to it (the Queadluun Rau's are quite sick, especially with the new color schemes), but it was the speaker thing and the singing that can stop a battle. By the way, could you imagine one of those speakers in my car. Man I would be knockin!! Ha. I just didn't like 7, due to all of the music based things. C'mon, flying a Valkrie by playing a guitar?? Alright, I guess. Really though. I am glad there is alot of people that do like it. There's always two sides to a coin. Unless you have a double sided coin. Damn cheaters!!!
  5. Yeah, that's me. I'm a jerk, I know but....c'mon, I'm the white ninja!!!! Nah, it was my Halloween costume this year. 33 years old, and just as equally immature as a 10 year old. C'mon, everybody wanted to be a ninja for Halloween once in their life. I just had to wait a little longer. Damn mother always dressing me like a clown or something lame. NINJA!!!! Anyways. Unclechopchop comes from my absolute favorite movie "Chopper". It's an Australian movie about a prison inmate. It's Eric Banna's first major role in a movie. In my opinion (uh oh, I'm at it again) it's the best movie ever made.
  6. I've been getting bashed alot lately, so maybe I'm on the defensive. I always took Macross super serious when I was younger. I just wanted everything after to be just perfect. Granted, that probably can't be possible, but I just though some of the past efforts were really really good. By the way, why does everybody hate Macross Zero? I personally thought that it was great , due to its realism (Yeah flying robots...right, I know). It just felt a little bit harder than the others. DYRL was pretty hard, and I thought the grittiness of Zero was on the same lines. So love me or hate me, I
  7. I'll definately agree to that. I aint quiting. I just thought it was pretty lame. For the season to start off so cool, then just drop like that, kinda made me think twice. I appreciate somebody who doesn't want me to hang. Opinions just suck in general, but of course everybody else has a right to one (except me apparently). I'm not forcing any opinions on anybody, I just wanted to see if anybody else agreed. I will definately finish off the season, no questions asked. Also, I did find the very end with the SDF-1 very intriguing. We'll see.
  8. I really don't want to sound like a jerk or anything, but I have to just get it out. After watching the first 10 episodes or so, I was pretty content with the show, but at episode 12, I felt like it really got lame. I mean what the hell was with the whole Zentradi thing? What was with Michel coming down on the planet with speakers connected to his vf? I do understand that the original series had alot of cheese to it, but c'mon, we were kids and had no real problems looking past that(Plus they made up for alot of that with DYRL). I just think this episode was a real step backwards. Macross 7 su

  10. Jeez, finally somebody gets what I was asking for. I have no idea why all of these people have to go on to so many different tangents that have nothing to do with what I was innitially asking. Finally somebody with sense!!
  11. I'll agree to a point that pirating sucks to an extent. But I think Metallica sucks even more for making a grand effort to stop it. Let the rich get richer, and the poor, well keep them poor. Chances are if they couldn't afford it in the first place, they probably wouldn't buy it. And if they did download it, maybe they would tell a whole bunch of other people that might go buy it then. Yes pirating sucks when it comes to this cheap crap I bought. But so do the Japanese for making such a grand effort not to release to it's greatest fan base which is mainly based in America. Seriously. Wha
  12. what you said doesn't really make any sense. If I want to ensure the series continues? I don't know why this has to get confrontational. If it was obvious to me that what I got was pirated, I probably wouldn't be so upset. And why would I buy the real thing when they don't have them selling everywhere in the states? And if they are, they sell for more than $60.00 and have no subtitles. I just want to watch the series just like everybody else. I really can't help that they don't release it in the states subbed. Anyways, thanks to all the people that replied with help. And to you, keep being a
  13. Yeah, it did start at episode 7. I just couldn't remember which one earlier. But yeah, I will probably wait for a little bit and then buy it again. I was just pissed because episode 7 looked really bad, but turned out to be one of the most entertaining. I am pretty excited about this series and just wanted to own some clean copies. Anyways, thanks everybody for the help. If you know something about where to get clean copies, please post them. I'll do the same.
  14. Hello everybody Well I recently bought the Malaysian release of Macross Frontier episode 1-25 + 1 cd set on-line. I started to watch it pretty hard-core, watching the first 4 episodes in a row. That was until I hit around episode 5, where the picture quality turned to complete crap. Needless to say, I was pissed that I dropped money on this. Granted, I didn't expect too much, but man this just sucked. Ever since that time, I've been searching high and low for a really clean subtitled dvd set of this show. Does anybody know of any. I know that I can download this stuff. But I just wanted to a
  15. I just got my VF-25S in the mail today and I must say, this toy is pretty sick!! I've read and argued many people about how they should give these new Bandai toys a chance, and boy was I right. I opened the package to only see a really nice toy. The construction is really good without that super light, something is going to break feeling. The colors are bright, and it has a little weight to it. The construction is very solid and durable, with a very tight feeling. The transformation was a little confusing do to Japanese only instructions, but I eventually got it.When everything was said and do
  16. What can I say, I'm new to this place. I'll do that now though
  17. I really suck at posing figures. I can't do it right now do to a family get together today, but I might give it a shot later. You should take a look around at some of the other posts on this subject, I've seen some other people post some pretty sick pics, and they look really good. It has just about the same range of motion as the 1/48 Yamato's with the exception of the swiveling waist. Other than that, pretty much the same. Also the arms on this toy have more motion than the 1/48(with metal also!!!)! I forgot to mention one thing that I do think that sucks. It's the antennas on the head. T

  20. See you everybody. I've got videogames to play. Can you believe it, a 33 year old man playing games. Jeez I'm a jerk
  21. When I get mine, I'l definately try to put it on. I kind of suck on the computer, but I will try my best. Oh, by the way, there's a new Japanese magazine (I have no idea what it's called) and it covers this whole line of toys. It has a bright orange cover on it with a vf-25f. I've seen it on e-bay. I do own it, but unfortunately left it at my friends house which is 65 miles away. I'll get it later this week. Maybe I'll post some scans then. Sorry for all of the inconveniences.
  22. I don't have mine yet, but fortunately there's a place that has a review of it and it has an instruction of how it transforms. I thinks it's called Toyark.com or something. Check it out. Let me know if you can't find it and I'll see what I can do.
  23. Cool. I just want everybody to feel like they are getting their moneys worth no matter what they buy. Well at least the people who buy them. Thanks for the welcome.
  24. Yeah, unfortunately I am super impatient and bought mine for $180.00. I'm such a jerk. I have no money, but spend the little I have on this crap. Maybe that's why I take it so personal. Thanks for the info though. I'll start to drop some lines for all of us when I figure some places that have this tuff on sale.
