  1. Hello, my name is Eleanor and I am a Macross toy addict. After having finished my PhD, getting married, and having a baby, I hardly bought any Macross stuff for the past 3 years. I was doing really well, resisting the urge to buy. The pandemic slowing down the number of releases really helped on that regard. *cough* *cough* Then.... tragedy struck.... I discovered that Amazon USA now has a Tamashii Nations store.... with Prime shipping. *sigh* So, in the past month I have ordered the following from Amazon: * DX Chogokin Maximillian Jenius YF-29 Durandal (Macross Movie: Absolute Live!!!!!) * DX Chogokin Worldwide Anniversary VF-25 Messiah * DX Chogokin Hayate Immelmann VF-31AX Kairos-Plus (Macross Movie: Absolute Live!!!!!) * DX Chogokin Alto Saotome VF-25F Super Messiah (Revival version) From Amazon JP: * Hi-Metal R Roy Focker VF-0S Phoenix x2 * Hi-Metal R VF-4G Lightning III Fron RightStuf: * Hi-Metal R Shin Kiudo VF-0D Phoenix x2 Help! I think I have a problem. My addiction came back and is hitting hard! S.O.S. Shizuka the Cat
  2. Is that an improvement... in terms of how they look?
  3. Hello everyone! MEOW!!! After having been away from the Macross toy collecting scene for what feels like forever, I just dipped my feet back in. Also.... what the heck are Macross Frontier "Revival" valkyries, and how are they different from the "Renewal" versions? I am so out of the loop. Also... I miss watching @jenius do his Macross toy review videos. Did he retire from doing those? Anyways, much love! Dr. Shizuka the Cat
  4. Came across this Macross fan film on YouTube today. I was very impressed!
  5. I was noticing that as well. Still.... I could not resist. I ended up placing a pre-order thru Amazon.com. I had missed the original pre-order madness date for this, and after Nippon-Yasan stole my money 3 years ago for a pre-order that was never fulfilled, I at least trust Amazon.com to not f--k me over. I am kind of excited. This is like my first Macross toy order since the pandemic started.
  6. Hello! I just noticed that Amazon.com has the HMR VF-0S Phoenix available for pre-order. Since when did the Amazon in the US start offering Macross pre-orders like this?
  7. I am kind of in agreement with @jenius I love Macross Frontier. It's my favorite of the Macross shows. I loved the music, the spectacle, the story of the TV series. But the Macross Frontier movies? Umm... other than the spectacle, I feel like the movies did not live up to the TV series. It was so disappointing. Because of that, I am probably not going to see the Frontier movies at the AMC near me. *sigh* I really wish I could love the movies.
  8. I wonder if this means Macross Frontier will get a US blu-ray release.... for A LOT cheaper than what I paid for the Japanese blu-ray imports.... sigh
  9. Just saw this new article published in Forbes today. Love seeing Macross, especially Macross Frontier, mentioned in the news! https://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2022/05/22/the-macross-frontier-movies-will-finally-get-a-us-theatrical-release-this-june/
  10. Thank you kindly. I hope to be around more often. Though, now that I have baby to care for, I doubt I can handle pre-order madness like I used to.... but we'll see. I already see a few Macross toys that came out that I am interested in.... like Armored Parts for the DX Chogokin VF-1J. But, then I think about how I need to save for Valkyrie's college education, and I just sit there staring at the Mandarake shopping cart and can't quite bring myself to click the checkout button. SIGH
  11. Did you just say "Max's 29"? Max? In a 29? (*confused blink blink*)
