I've got a scene identification challenge for macrossworld Macross cel collectors. I've searched and search, but alas I've haven't able to find the specific scene.
I had assumed this head shot was of Roy's yellow valkyrie from Macross DYRL, but it appears this might not be the case. Any ideas
A couple of Macross: Do You Remember Love cels of Minmay and Hikaru/MIsa just sold recently on YJ for 234K Yen. That was definitely more than I would have expected.

I agree with mokman, the Bonhams strategy with a high starting price and the buyer's premium of 27.5% probably won't bring on the bidding war. But who knows nowadays.

Anyone's wallets a lot thinner this morning?
Amazing Macross art once again via Heritage Auctions.....even more amazing were the final auction prices.....1000 USD was more or less the minimum price for the priviledge of owning anything Macross-related from today's listings....
A sampling of the more impressive selections.....
Macross Hangar Illustration - (Artmic? Unused ARII/IMAI boxart?)....7500 USD
The "Hangar" illustration can be found in the Macross - Magazine for Anime and Hobby Fan ARII/IMAI booklets Volume 5, page 16 - upper left hand corner....so it looks to have been concept art for the Macross Factory kits....maybe once they had the actual lineart for what the hangar was supposed to look like, they commissioned Takani instead and ditched the "Artmic" version?
Macross illustration....(used in posters and other Macross media during SDFM TV era)...6875 USD
Masami Macross Illustration....(used in various Children's books and Magazines during SDFM TV era)....5000 USD
Macross Destroid Tomahawk Hanken Cel (used in model kit boxes from ARII, IMAI during SDFM TV era)....8750 USD
VF-1A Max TV illustration - Artmic (unused ARII/IMAI boxart?).....11875 USD
An outstanding auction. Heritage Auction definitely out did themselves, again.

HA is definitely attracting quite a bit of attention from the Cel collecting community based on the final auction prices (plus buyers premium no less). Keep'em coming.
What's interesting is the sketch is on Tokyo Movie Co. LTD letter head, they were know for Orguss. (later became TMS, now a subsidiary of Sega).

That is an awesome piece! Congratulations again on adding the VF-1D settei. You nearly have a full set! What else you think you need to round out, or complete your set?
That is the same question I ask myself each time I buy just one more Settei.

Nice. Although the traceline damage is somewhat significant. Didn't participate as settei do not interest me enough to own. However that leaves one less competition for those of you who do collect, doesn't it?
@Oden: You have an awesome settei collection. Did you manage to pick anything up to add to your large collection?
Thanks Fortress_Maximus for the kinds words.
I indeed was able to get one, the VF-1D in fact, how could I resist.!
Did anyone else here participate in the Heritage Auction's Live International Comic & Animation Art Auction this weekend (March 13-14) which had a number of Studio Nue Macross Settei's / Model Sheets up for grabs?
Collectors were definitely fighting it out based on the final prices with Buyer's Premiums.
At one point when the 3rd Settei was up for bid (Armored VF-1J SOLD $11,250 w/t BP), the auctioneer mentioned "we definitely need to get more of these".
Yep this anime cel arbitrage fad is getting to be real annoying. I guess they get lucky once and a while.

My most prized art piece, an original Takani of Milia's VF-1J in Gerwalk mode.
I'm just in awe at how much detail he put into his art, he is my #1 favorite artist, then Tenjin of course!
Got it back in 2011 for the most I've ever spent on a single Macross item, $800! (I"m not a crazy cel collector like some of you, where that would be a drop in the bucket)
If you did not remember, he had a lot of his work up for sale. This was the cheapest valkyrie, so did pooled all the pennies together.
Again, have posted this before, but this is the first HQ pic I've uploaded of it.
This REEEEEEAAAALLLYY makes me want a Macross Box art BOOK. Maybe I could do an unauthorized one like the Transformers ones or something and not get into too much trouble. Something something fair use right?
From the Imai 1/72 Variable kit.
Definitely a Yoshiyuki Takani treasure. Thanks for sharing.
Looks like it went for 55,000Yen
Looks like it sold for 601,000Yen, with 30 bids no less.
Did you determine which book the Hanken cel came from?
This set went higher than the yahoo price due to internal proxy bidders fighting it out. ~$950
It looks like the Flash Back 2012 cel went for 180,000 yen, hopefully to a collector.
Also there is no budging on price, even if it sits there for a while.
I followed one genga set for around 2 years with no reduction in price. I finally through in the towel and bought it.

Nice catch Mokman!
Then these might interest you on YJ, a little pricey though.

I'm pleased to have a cel in my collection from Macross Flash Back 2012 again. This is the third Flash Back cel I've owned; unfortunately, the first two were sold years ago. Prices have gone up a LOT since I bought those cels in the late '90s/early 2000s. Fortunately, this one isn't stuck, although it does have a bit of line fading (like every FB cel I've ever seen).
nice image! Thanks for sharing
A question for those who use desiccant packs to protect your cel collections, what type are you using? I find the small 1/2 unit Desi Pak's to be bulky when used in conjunction with a ITOYA Profolio binders. Are there thin alternatives?
Definitely a great catch.

Thanks Shawn. Ha, Ha, not much of a challenge was it.
