  1. Finally here from Nippon Yasan! I really feel like this is the superior look over the flashback version. I'm getting an airbrush soon so I might try to paint the yellow trim red.







  2. Bandai Robot Spirits Evangelion Unit 03! I had this a few years ago and regretted selling it so I'm glad to have this in the collection once again.


    And! I technically purchased this blank shirt from Walmart for my wife to use her Cricket to print me a SMS logo. I love subtle anime shirts.

    It works well in the sense that it keeps new Macross features largely accessible to new viewers... because it's an effective way to prevent the kind of continuity lockout problems that the Universal Century Gundam shows have become increasingly prone to.

    On the other hand, the more inquisitive casual viewers and fans can find this position frustrating since it makes it difficult to have a definitive answer to many questions.  This, I suspect, is why Macross publications try to go both ways on it... Kawamori has his view, while some printed works take a firmer attitude towards continuity.  Everyone gets what they want, and (almost) nobody goes home unhappy.

    Since I am the latter viewer/fan described I also appreciate the with the wealth of knowledge, like yourself! :D

    NY was one of the first shops to send out the VF-4. Did the people who didn’t get theirs sent yet order early or late?

    I'm one of those late orders, pre-ordered 12/15/19 to be exact. 

    But I got this reply yesterday after inquiring,

    " We apologies for the delay in your pre order. After checked with the dispatch center they did not receive yet our stock for figure. Since it already released, we will receive it during this month.

    One more time we apologies for this inconvenience, and please be sure when we will have the product we will ship fast as possible your pre order." 

    So I'm not worried, it'll be around eventually lol

    I used joint rings from an old model kit.

    I've actually made a few hardpoint mounts by drilling out and slicing up a section of sprue, but it's not an easy process.  The mounts really are just a ring though, and depending on the tolerances, it might be very easy to just make a series of properly-sized rings with a 3D-printer.

    I see. Thanks gents! I'll be experimenting with some options in the near future. Plenty of 1/100 ordanance asking to be used on some HMR.

    The Yf-29 under the legs pose is ....unique

    Haha, that's why I await my Yeti Stands with much anticipation. Get some proper height and banking poses going. I'm just glad for now that they fit.

    Thanks.  Added missiles to my VF-4G.


    Say what? How did you go about mounting? I'd love to do the same on my copy.

  8. Being the masochist I am, I finally read all 554 pages of this thread over the last 2 weeks lol. What a journey, especially the hundreds of pages dedicated to the VF-31A and NY.

    So with some current topic contributions...I just got a Vf-31J Kai off Mandrake recently and I honestly think it looks so good in Gerwalk. You get to see the trim and take advantage of the armaments. Can't wait for the super parts and Yeti Stands to come in.

    It was 6000Y plus shipping. I think I've seen it fluctuate a bit lower a while ago like you said, it went up too. I think 6000 is just a tad below MSRP and mine seems as good as new so I'm happy.

    How do you like it as a figure? I've been debating on grabbing this or the the S variant just to have a type of VF-19 in my 1/100 collection.

    I’ll have a total of 5 VF-4Gs coming in.  One to keep MISB (huge MISB collector B))), one for Fighter, one for Battroid, one to paint the yellow parts blue, and one to paint the yellow parts red.

    Can't wait to see them all done up! I'm debating on doing the same with my 1, going from yellow to red.

    Yeah, the chest intakes are the weakest part I think, with the weird jagged yellow tail tips a close second.  I might strip them down, but if the main plastic color is the same, I may just swap parts in and out with another version.

    I'm definitely leaning more towards painting the yellows to red. Doesn't seem like it's in too many hard to paint places.

  12. Started off with some DX Macross starter parts and extras to fit my VF-25F and YF-29. Now with an incoming VF-31J I definitely will be picking up a knuckle, elbows, Alpha stand, and additional arms at a later date!

    In before Newbie & Short Questions thread merge... 

    Nope.  The most we see/hear of Shin Kudo or Sara Nome after the ending of Macross Zero is when time-displaced versions of the main cast (Shin, Sara, Mao, Nora, and D.D.) from during the OVA's events briefly appear on the planet Uroboros in 2060 due to the influence of a Fold Evil that a rogue NUNS VF-X Special Forces unit is screwing with.


    "Canon" is a word that is difficult to apply to Macross.  Shoji Kawamori's attitude towards continuity amounts to a "broad strokes" canon, and he's often opined that he sees each Macross title as a dramatization of a "true" history.  (When you get right down to it, it's that he just wants to tell his stories and not get bogged down in minutae.)

    Official publications like Macross Chronicle generally favor the "series" version of any given story for timeline purposes, though as with DYRL they often acknowledge movie-only things as things that exist in their setting too but under a slightly different context.  Examples include the movie VF-1 being a later block version of the VF-1 than the TV VF-1, or both of Exsedol's forms being true... one being his miclone form and one his giant form.

    As is customary for Macross, we don't really have any significant information about what happens to the characters after their story ends.  Kawamori likes to move on once a character's story has ended, rather than have them hang around once they're no longer the focus of the story.

    Ranka and Sheryl are implied to have continued their music careers after the events of the series, but that's about all.

    The only hard info I can recall comes from non-official material like Variable Fighter Master File, which has some minor remarks that confirm that Ranka and Sheryl were still touring as idol singers into the 2060s.  One entry describes a New UN Spacy squad which pulled escort duty during one of Ranka's tour stops on an emigrant planet in 2062 painting one of their VF-25Cs with her likeness to commemorate her visit there, and another describes the SMS bodyguard detail assigned to Sheryl once she started working out of Macross Olympia temporarily being redesignated a special unit "Queen's Knights" with modex numbers picked by Sheryl to match her and Alto's birthdays (Aircraft 1123 and 727).

    EDIT: The most we usually get when a past character is referenced is a brief and usually minimal statement of what they're up to... like Basara still bumming around space c.2060, or Kim Kabirov having stayed in the NUNS long enough to become a General.

    Interesting. I have noticed that Kawamori does have that tendency to move forward after each series is done. I figured maybe the Master Files or other supplementary material may have slight mentions, which you have indicated there are. Thanks for your wealth of knowledge!
