  1. I honestly have no clue where you're getting this. Obviously not from these boards. Take a look around and think again. Now, if you're talking about posts in this thread where people are comparing the VF-1 to the VF-0 and saying that the VF-1 outperforms it, you're grossly misunderstanding what people are saying. This thread was started by someone saying it bothers them that the VF-0 is technologically superior to the VF-1. Others have chimed in to correct him. There's multiple sources that prove that the VF-1 is technologically the superior fighter. Any idea that the VF-0 has better technology is a misconception born from modern animation techniques making the variable fighters of today look better than those animated by Animefriend 20 years ago, and Kawamori's constantly changing design style. I like the VF-0, and many others do too. Take a look in the toy forums sometime, or even just M0 threads in general. yeah I know what you mean but you can´t say there´s no criticism at all in regards to the VF-0 when this topic arises once in a while , I think the situation as far as now is more like this : Apart from the thermonuclear engines I don´t see any difference in performance between the VF-0 or VF-1 to come to the concclusion that the VF-0 is a prototype or an older model of the VF-1 , which would be a stupid assumption if it was based solely in the numbers of the valkyries. To this date I think this matter remains unclear mainly because there´s been no solid and specifically clear clues in the OVAs to suggest that neither of the to valks is more advanced than the other one. If anything at all the only radical differences I can gather are their functions (one is a testbed and the other one the cheap main variable fighter ) and appearance (the airframe mainly) but apart from that there´s nothing that has convinced me that the VF-1 or VF-0 is more superior to the other one. I think some people should relax a bit and stop acting like orthodox fans and let the OVA finnish first. I honestly don´t know how some people expected Kawamori to do a Prequel without showcasing his current style , I bet if the VF-1 ever appears in M0 it will not be exactly like we remember it to be , looks-wise, mainly because Kawamori can´t get rid of his style even if he wanted to because that´s what is has developed into after all this years.
  2. So pretty much no one has anything good to say about the VF-0 or Macross Zero for that matter...I wonder why does Kawamori eveb bother to make new series when there´s so many nitpicking.
  3. Huh..OK ...so you´re comparing a mecha featured in a high-budget OVA with a Long running TV series folk-people´s valkyrie....I honestly don´t see the similarites apart from the nosecone , which IMO is more similar to the VF-5000...the VF-0 is definetively neo-retro-looking (wonder if that style even exists )
  4. They look very nice indeed but I´ll wait for the second series concidering we might see more M0 figures as well as DYRL Roy and maybe Basara or Gamlin ..wonder if they would do Edward or Pedro (the anoying kid from M7 movie)
  5. Really nice , I like the way you´ve worked with all the curved lines and the SD-cel-shaded-kinda look. It´ll be lovely to see it animated
  6. Same story , i use to be vf-19G-geko custom ( can you recognise my avatar? ), i never liked that nick becuase it was unpractial and stupidly unoriginal, I had to use that name becuase Aegis was already taken so here I´m with my first intended name... BTW , the new boards rock!
  7. Your logic escapes me. First you make a comment completely unrelated to Macross Zero, then say Macross Zero is systematically destroying your love of Macross. There's completely no connection between those statements and so your second statemement goes unexplained. On an unrelated not I have to agree with Knight26's take on this Destroid. it looks like another Destroid, but not really any more advanced than it's predecessors, less advanced in a lot of ways. Of course Kawamori's design sense has changed in the years and that's going to reflect, but exactly like the VF-0 debate, it doesn't mean this really looks any more advanced. I'd take the good ol' Tomahawk over this one any day. I have to agree , I mean , it would be pretty strange if Kawamori´s style didn´t change a bit in 20 years , by the time he designed the mechs on AC he already had years of experience and it would be really weird if he didn´t adopt his own current style for M0 mechs. And in regards to KingNor´s comments I don´t see how M0 could possibly systematicly destroying someone´s love for Macross when all of the UN mechas have been designed with the same thing in mind , and that is to combat aliens; the only reason you see them fighting humans is because there were no friking aliens and some idiots from the Anti-UN decided to use the technology against the goverment...which by all means has always been in Macross from the beggining.
  8. It would be horrendous if Yamato decided to release Shin VF-0D first . Why? because every first toy in a new line is the worst , I would be glad if they released it after the A and S variants so that they have time to really really improve the design by the time they release a VF-0D... And I wouldn´t be so optimistic about hearing anything anytime soon. In the meantime we can wait for the YF-19 FP
  9. To answer the topic title , No I don´t mind having a new fighter. You know , I´ve seen this debate many times before and I´m tired of seeing the same attitudes , is like the whole M7 debate all over again : You have people saying the VF-1 is way cooler and more advanced because they somehow take a defensive attitude towards something new like there was someone triying to say the VF-1 is crap when it´s not. I believe there´s no real basis for neither of the two arguments (for or agaisnt the VF-0 ), the only thing we´re clear about is the fact that the VF-1 has the only advantage of having thermonuclear reactors while the VF-0 hasn´t got them and that´s it. but if we think about it the to valkyries are just contemporaries , if not we would see such similar designs and such a short time between the deployment of both valkyries, the only reason we don´t see any VF-1s is because they´re still in the factories waiting for the thermonuclear engines , why ? because the UN is not willing to alter the design just because of an isolated incident (Mayan conflict); Add to this the fact that the VF-0 is a test fighter and as such can be alter with relative ease and its numbers are more limited (perfect for Mayan). And by the way , what´s the point of this debate ? just enjoy your MAcross people ...Jesus
  10. Mate , this game is great , IMO the most solid macross game ever released. Fun , good graphics , good 2D shoot-em-up structure. If only they would release it for GBA now that everyone is releasing SNES games on the portable.
  11. Aegis!

    Meeting with yamato

    Oh , what a shame , I didn´t get to post any questions ..well , Graham wasn´t allowed to tell anything on the upcoming Macross Zero line anyway...I was wondering though if they were planning on making a 1/60 GBP armour or if they would just skip that plan and go directly to 1/48. Oh yeah , I´m also very curious of how they feel about the 1/72 line success when there´s so much growing interest in the 1/48 line . Guess we´re damn to buy 1/48 from now on cause I doubt people will be willing to buy non-1/48 stuff.
  12. Wow , that navy babe does look great , I really think the character designer of has made 2 great contributions to Macross The VF-0D looks splendid , I don´t know who´s making all this illustrations but he´s doing a great job , specially with all the detail (panel lines , pilot´s helmets , etc..).
  13. Hooray ! I´m alive !!! .... <_< Really nice work , it´s nice to see everyone again , I was getting worried to be honest. Thanks Shawn for bringing the old place back to life as well Anyway , It´s a nice new begining , a perfect oportunity now that we´re waiting for Ep.3 .
