  1. Can modern valks in battroid mode sustain altitude in an atmosphere?

    (Maybe it's a different universe but it is weird the Gundams with wings can sustain atmospheric flight but cannot escape the earth's gravity. Modern Valks like the VF-19 and onwards were able to go into space, unaided.)

    In Macross Zero when Fokker was transforming his valk keeps descending. In Macross when Max and Millias Battle over the ocean has Max transforming into a battroid but only stays on that form for a few seconds (maybe because it is less mobile?)

    This is what, the second time they've done that?  It's more merciful than what they did to her in the old Sentinels material, where she went from borderline stalking "Rick" at and after his wedding to being a homewrecker preying on his subordinates.

    It looks like the goal was exactly what we thought it was from the word go... to write the Masters Saga and New Generation out of existence so they could pursue a Macross-derivative ongoing story.

    Macross derivative? So it would still come back to the SDF-1 and the VF-1 again for the next 36 years...

  3. Over the years, I have seen the backpack thrusters disappearing, with the VF-25 just having six small thrusters that push you forward while in GERWALK since the legs are pointing downward. I do understand that that is what the FAST packs are for, or the Extra engines in the VF-27 and YF-29. But when I look at the VF-31, I would think, what would push this forward while in GERWALK (image credit to Projeckt-Zero-Three)

    Of the new serieses, yes. 

    Of SDF Macross, no. HG, through Tatsunoko, has exclusive worldwide distribution rights to that entry in the franchise.

    But if they release RT in the UK, and the term Macross has been trademarked by BW, wouldn't that be a problem for Tatsunoko/HG as well?

    I don't see why they'd have to remove the Zentraedi references at all.  If you keep the intro of Isamu being the reckless hotshot against the rogue band in the beginning, there's your introduction to them.

    But yeah... I hesitate to put any hope in there being a -good- adaptation of it, but it's probably the best candidate.

    I think the word Zentradi was part of the IP, which was why Shadow Chronicles never used the term. I think Maia Sterling was considered Half-Alien rather as Half-Zentradi as far as I remember. (Please correct me if I am wrong here, or maybe my memories are just fuzzy or something)

  6. Macross never really delved on political wars I guess, unless you count the video games so I guess this is pretty new for the fandom (as warring factions is usually something of Gundam while Macross is more of encountering a new race). Frontier did it, but it was more of a background thing.

    The Delta Storyline could have handled it better. I guess some of the things that irked me it's like the Walkure aren't just idols, they are super idols. One of them is a top mechanic, the other a hacker. I guess they are understaffed I guess. I mean other than the delta flight. Xaos didn't have anything else it seems.

  7. I think I've asked this before but why do the modern Valks have small to almost no backpack thrusters. I mean I rewatched Macross plus and there you can see the exhaust on the YF-19 on its back. Does that mean the VF-25 or VF-31 rely heavily on the leg thrusters to "hover" in the atmosphere. How about propelling forward in gerwalk. I remember there are like six small holes in the VF-25 when it is in Gerwalk. Is that as powerful as the previous valks?

  8. What was the structure of the UN Government, and why aren't they being pictured. I mean in the original Macross Series we see Takashi Hayase as the head of UN Spacy (as far as I know). Do they report to someone higher?

    And for Delta, it's like the Government heads for each planet were actually doing nothing at all but depend on Kaos or something.

  9. Emerald Force didn't get much love as well...

    As for the VF-11C, What annoyed me is that it got blasted too often and then have the ejected canopy be caught and have the pilot's spiritia drained hehe

    The Elgerzorene and Panzerzorene should have toy versions. But I guess there is no demand for it.
