  1. Some anime series out there, don't even deserve MacDonalds!!!
  2. knock on wood, I got really lucky with my VF-0A, but I would still rather wait for the newest versions to come out, if they do with all new QC. For what the Zero series costs, Yamato better make some serious improvements!!!
  3. Nope, Golden Apple might have been attitude heaven from the clerks, but they handled Anime products, so they knew the difference. This was a comic shop on Corbin Ave & Parthenia next to the 7-11, not sure if its still there anymore. I think the ownership traded hands a few times!!!
  4. Back in 1991 at an old Comic book store in Northridge, CA. I popped in one day with buddy to get some new comics, in the corner was this VF-1S!!! I asked the guy what he wanted for it, he said "I could care less about that Japanese stuff, $50.00 if you want it..." I said hell ya and its been my prize possession since. I'm keeping this one!!! Macross 4 life!!!
  5. Wheres the Love Yamato for your American & other overseas buyers??? Better start making friends in Japan I guess.....
  6. Hey Macrossman, Wish I had some of those pictures handy. On my ninth birthday in 1985 I was with my Mom & brother at a department store called Mervyn's for you on the west coast, you know what those are. Anywho, back in the day they used too have toy dept's and on the racks were tons of Robotech and import "Knock-off" Macross items, He-Man, G.I. JOE and others. there were 3 rows of Transformer Jetfires!!! I told my brother I wanted one, but he said they were too expensive, plus I already had some great gifts at home that I would like. So when I was opening up gifts, My brother gave me the last one.... I was like holy ^$&^$*, Its was a brand new JetFire!!! Best B-day ever!!! Especially caused it always reminded of me the scene when Roy Fokker gives Hikaru that Model plane kit while he was in the Hospital. Thanks macrossman for the trip down memory lane thread!!!!!!
  7. Its always been a great time to be a Macross fan!!!!!!!! Macross is an Anime unlike any other, whether there was a series that we really liked or could have done without, doesn't matter. We all got together as friends and devoted fans to talk about & complain about it!!! We've laughed, we've cried and even said Holy %*$^#@!! that was awesome!!! For me I always feel nostalgic when watch Macross, I saw Robotech on the very day it debuted in 1985, I was still in 4th grade and ran home everyday after to tape it on my VCR (That's pre DVD and DVR for some of you, j/k) I saw a bootleg copy of Macross DYRL later in 85' and was hooked ever since. Even though macross 7 wasn't great, its still a part of macross History!! Just like "Sharky" said, I remember going to conventions or too Little Tokyo at the Pony Toy Go Round at Yohan Plaza, Los Angeles just to look at all the new toys and model kits that were out!! And its true, back in the day people would be like Anime whats that.... "you mean speed racer??" So its come along way, Anime. But macross will always be the most the special and dedicated or series because of its fan base and Websites like macrossworld.com!!! Macross 4 life!!!!!
  8. I saw this one last night on Ebay, Its a rare version of the SDF-1 toys, no doubt, but its far from Mint condition, even then $600.00........ Not to sure about that.
  9. Those are awesome customs!!! You've got some skill there!!
  10. Can't wait for the new 1/60 VF-11B, Just seeing this pic makes me want a VF-11 even more now!!!
  11. Thanks Valkyrie Addict for the pics!! That is an awesome custom!!!
  12. If the same guy who made the Thunder Hammer, makes a SDF-1 for you, Safe to safe you'll have the ultimate envy item in your collection. Sad to say it may be a while before anyone in Japan realizes we want a big SDF-1!!!
  13. I can't see why Yamato, Bandai, Hasegawa or any other takers (Minus Toynami of course) wouldn't take a swing at making a new version SDF-1 like the Original 1980's release!!?? There's definitely a profit to be made!! I have 2 of them and for the time when they were made and the technology available, they are still impressive, can you imagine how it would look now!!! I agree that the WAVE 1/5000 is compact and detailed. But it still lacks a major punch in Size, its the SDF-1 it should be big!! A 1/3000 or 1/2000 scale and reissued in both the TV series & DYRL versions!!!
  14. We'll be waiting patiently!! Gonna be a dam good looking Valk when shes all done!!!
  15. when you have the pilot all painted & finished can you share your pictures with us, would love to see how it turns out!! Looks amazing so far, Will you take a swing at making more of these??
  16. I agree with Gubaba, Hasegawa has the skills & detail to make exquisite Aircraft models and the VF-0S Battroid is no less of perfection. So I agree, a set of gerwalk Valks is in order!! The VF-1's and Zeros would be a great start!! I'd say the Macross II VF-2SS in all 3 separate modes for max detail, but I'll bet that's another licensing battle with Bandai or others....
  17. My baby, the Macross II VF-2SS!! Hopefully in 1/60 scale by Yamato....... Someday. I can wish & hope right??!! Which company is the maker of your VF-2SS, Bandai or a resin kit??
  18. That's a good question as far as the VFX2 Licensing goes, But lets see what the new VF-11B will look like 1st, because, if it is as good as I think we are all hoping it looks, Than I can't see why the various Armor packs wouldn't follow suit. Also, not sure if I missed it in the other postings, any rumors if the New VF-11 even comes with the Std FP's Isamu has in the opening scene of the OVA, Sorry if this question has already been asked!!
  19. That would suck!! After all the waiting I want to see the VF-1D with Minmay & Hikaru, Not std pilots, I have the Original VF-1D and never was happy with the pilots they chose!! Maybe Hasegawa should start making toys, they are anal for details!!!
  20. I hope the hands & landing gear will be as detailed as the Hasegawa 1/72 Macross Zero types!! But either way I will definitely get one or two of these, perfect for some custom paint schemes!!!
  21. I'm not really a big fan of the YF-19, but that paint scheme is awesome, This one might be worth getting!!! Thanks for the pics!!!
  22. As for me I am probably one of the rarer Macross fans who loves the VF-1D, I actually like it better than the VT-1. But as far modernizing it for the sake of Yamato to speed up production or what not, that's kinda weak. If your going to make a certain Valkyrie, then make it the way it was originally designed. And speaking of better or other scans, when you can not find them, go to the source... your DVD's. The other pic is of Hasegawa's 1/72 model version of the VF-1D and that's what it should look like. Just a shame they'll never do a 1/48 and this is apparently what the new 1/60 v.2 is gonna look like. But then again, its just my opinion.....
  23. That is a sick & sexy collection you have there my friend!!! Love the Valkyrie line-up!!
  24. It would be amazing to have a 1/60 version, no doubt about it, But definitely size and what one would cost, It be either a down payment on a house or new car!!!
