Cannon Fodder

Cannon Fodder (1/15)



  1. I got mine a couple of weeks ago for $130 (plus $20 for express shipping) here: http://www.yesasia.com/us/macross-do-you-remember-love-hybrid-pack-first-press-limited-edition/1030474905-0-0-0-en/info.html The price has since gone up a tad to $150, but I think this still might be the cheapest around at the moment. Edit: not sure if you were after the LE or standard, sorry!
  2. I'm kind of in the same boat about not knowing what to watch next. My introduction into the world of Macross was via Robotech way back in the mid-80s and never thought about it ever again until several weeks ago. Since then, I've watched the original/true SDF Macross and DYRL. I started Macross Plus, but for some reason I just can't get into it. Maybe I'll have better luck with Macross Zero.
  3. My copy finally arrived! For the curious: - Purchased from YesAsia 2/1; on sale for $129 and paid the extra $20 for express shipping - Shipped 2/4 and arrived (I'm in Northern California) 2/11; good timing as they had a notice on their website about shipping temporarily being suspended for a few days starting on the 9th because of the Lunar New Year Flipped through it quickly and I can see the things some people are unhappy about, but I'm personally satisfied with my purchase. I'm currently ripping this to my hard drive and going to start re-timing subtitle files to add later. Here's the film strip I ended up with:
  4. Expected, but I'm more than willing to re-time everything no matter how long it takes. Still not sure what the "non-wide" SRT files are for.
  5. I'm planning to add English subs to my copy of DYRL BD and my initial forum search led me to these threads of interest: - Hurin's awesome subtitle upgrade (5/18/2005 Update): http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=13965 - Hurin's other upgrade (10/6/2005 Update): http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=13441 - Hurin mentioning re-timing his previous efforts for the 2007 R2 version: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=24267&page=6#entry546651 Although these were for older releases, I'm still interested (and only interested) in the SRT files that I can edit on my own (I imagine some of the timings will need to be adjusted for the BD release), but a few questions... 1. In the Working Files/Timed Scripts folder, there is an additonal "non-wide" version of the SRT file which ends on line 4481 (compared to 4457 in the other version). What is the difference (24 lines?) between the "non-wide" and "regular" version? 2. My first guess would be to use the latest update (10/6), but the SRT files between the 5/18 (macross-dyrl-r2-perfect-subs) and 10/6 (macross-dyrl-fx-subs-v2) versions all share the same file modification dates. Is it safe to assume that the SRT files used between the two versions are identical and that the updates/changes were only for the other files? 3. These were made in 2005. Has a more recent version appeared or were these pretty much already perfect, making further updates unnecessary? My plan is just to rip the movie then add subs and MKV it, so all I'm really missing is a good SRT file (that will no doubt need some adjustments). Interesting tidbit: my only other copy of DYRL is a "perfect edition" that I picked up at Amazon and I'm 99.9% sure it was built using Hurin's subs.
  6. Which version of DYRL is sort of "universally" regarded as having the most accurate english subtitles? The only version I have at the moment is some "Perfect Edition" I bought from Amazon and it appears to be a bootleg of some other version (I'd be the first to admit not knowing the various incarnations of DYRL throughout the years).
  7. So, it looks like DYRL LE is currently on sale and can be had for $130 US so I jumped on this: http://www.yesasia.com/us/macross-do-you-remember-love-hybrid-pack-first-press-limited-edition/1030474905-0-0-0-en/info.html But now I'm worried. Is this a reputable retailer? I know, I know... I should've done more research. I'm hoping it's not a "too good to be true" thing with it ending up to be some bootleg. :|
  8. Hi everyone! So, a little over twenty years ago I first saw DYRL and never thought about it ever again until recently... and now, I must have it on Blu-ray. I'm looking at picking up the 30th anniversary box and one of the DYRL threads mentioned an online shop called Nippon-Yasan. Thinking I'm too late, the site even says it's in stock(!). Before I pull the trigger, however, are there any other places I should consider first? This place is overseas and I have little experience making online purchases outside of the US.
