  1. As far as Mrs. Iijima`s voice, I like her voice alot better than most of the other singers out there. There is too much of the excessively cute highpitched squeeky voices. As a particularly annoying example I will refer to the opening sequence for Dears, "I`m your slave" by Under 17. Mouse chu Mouse is also quite excessive. And of course Morning Musume and all the clones they spawned. I also second the notion, MILF!
  2. Due to the tilt of the earths axis, and the fact that Japan is much further north than most of the posters on macrossworld, the angle of the earths surface relative to the equator reduces the amount of ambient light that hits the surface. So the suns warming rays have a greatly reduced effect. Thus there is a "international season line" that you have to take into account. This is why many anime magazines have a 3month lead relative to magazines published closer to the equator.
  3. Its Ramaya from Arabian Fights. Part of the Yujin Sega Gals gashapon set. http://www.verycoolthings.com/vct/images/YUJ93006.jpg
  4. Yeah, watching Zakus slap around the Gundams was quite entertaining
  5. Although they are called anti-ship swords, aren't they still technically beam sabers? Yes, they are larger and heavier than a normal 'hilt only' type beam sabre, so will be less nimble to wield but the basic principle and technology should be the same AFAIK. Graham The problem seemed to be that Shin was hitting MS with the physical part of the sword/boomerang, and since the enemy gundams had phase(or was it transphase?) shift armor up he did no damage. Against a ship that cant dodge the beam portion he would be able to inflict full damage. The Gundam seed MSV with the Sword Calamity showed what the swords were designed to do, shred ships. And he was a civilian in the flashback in ep 1. and those events made him decide to join the military.
  6. as far as I know, both the sword strike and sword impulse have anti-ship swords. For anti MS meele the Aile Strike or Force Impulse beam sabers or knives are more effective.
  7. You got those pics from here right? http://mokei.net/test/read.cgi/up/1079559471/l50 The post under the pic says it is from a model magazine from that era. Doesnt say specificaly which magazine. So my guess is that it was a custom fan project that got a pic in a magazine like hobby japan durring the 80`s
  8. Ok, I saw one of that in stock. PM me with your mailing address and I can get you a shipping quote. I picked me up a 1973 september issue of Hobby Japan. No Gundam at all. Mostly Revel and Monogram stuff. Bandai only had one page of adds, just regular military tank injection kits. Also, check this link to see if there are any model graphix issues you need. http://www.trooperpx.com/SF3D/ModelGraphix.html And here for hobby japan. http://www.trooperpx.com/SF3D/HobbyJapan.html
  9. Does condition matter? I found a place that specializes in old hobby magazines, but ones for the `70s and `80s are usualy in poor condition.
  10. Cool, thanks for contributing guys! Looks like I need to put my camera on a stand, and make more frames for GIF use.
  11. If the sign was there, then weren't the three of you at fault? The staff should have pointed it out right away, but I bet the three of you felt silly arguing over something that could have been settled in one second. So, in the real version did you threaten them, challenge them to a fight, push stuff over or what? And must you always pay by credit card? How about good old cash? Yeah, in hindsight us 3 were double plus wrong. The only thing that they really did wrong, was to let Rob get away with using 3,000yen on a credit card in his previousl purchases. And this was probably a nice thing, the register girls that did that previously were experienced and were familiar with Rob and his purchasing habits. They probably knew the 5,000yen limit but let it slide since he was a big spender there. The last time was a new girl that only knew about the 5,000yen limit and had no clue as to how to deal with someone who didnt want to pay that much. In the "real" version people were no where as well behaved as the story suggests, I was infact looking forward to seeing how my outburst would be depicted There were also some highly entertaining conversations we had that violated section 3 rule #2
  12. Since you posted in both gashapon theads you might be confused about set 3. In the Bandai macross gashapon set there are 3 sets, but in the K&M macross gashapon set there are only 2 so far.
  13. Its too bad we couldnt take pictures inside the K-books. Should have known better about the Macross 7 dojinshi, content was highly suspect since we got it on the second floor. If we got one from the 4th floor the contents might have been more interesting... Er, not that I would know whats on the 4th floor Jeez, just because I have a scissors, knife, tweezers, screwdrivers, nailfile, ruler, vietnam era P-38 can opener and flashlight on my keychain does not make me a McGuyver And dont get me started on the contents of my Utility Backpack, its saved my life on more than one occasion
  14. This isnt really a sequel per se. Its more of an "alternate reality" version. Something very commonly done for movies based on anime/TV shows in Japan. In the original TV series Hakkaida is killed by Skeleton Squirrel and his body occupied by Professor Gill`s brain in the sequel series Kikkaida 01. So it is possible that someone else recovers the Hakkaida body and transplants another brain to it, but this is not official cannon.
  15. Perfect Grade 1/60 Strike maybe? Edit; Woohoo, no longer a waxer!
  16. I have some Regults that have been opened and put on display. http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?...ndpost&p=165320 for $12 plus shipping(should be around $2-3 depending on if you want it in a box or just a padded envelope) I`d be willing to part with some. Which type do you guys need?
  17. Damn, its true. I went yesterday and they have made it much harder for foreign hairy barbarians to display the volume of ignorance that we did I guess some good did come out of this
  18. Ah, that will do it. MUCH easier than the SEARCH function. Sorry for my nooblieness.
  19. If you spent some time in the model kit forum you would have known about these months ago These are made by a Japanese resin kit maker named Patemori-Soba. They have been cranking out 1/72 destroids for the last couple wonderfests. And they will likely continue as long as there is demand.
  20. And keep in mind Renato and Rob wimped out and gave sanitized versions of the ordeal

  22. It seems to me that this is the forum with the most traffic, which is kinda sad considering that this is a Macross site... I have been having to hunt for some threads I have been following and its getting a bit difficult. Maybe it should be split into two, the Other Anime, and Science Fiction. Is this possible? It sounds like a huge task to sort all the existing threads, and alot dont quite fit into either catagory.
  23. The lowest price I have seen for a Yamato 1/48 was 5,000yen new. But the box was in craptacular condition. Toy was near mint. I rarely every find a new toy these days that I would call "mint".
  24. Not only did he have a son, Monkey-Punch wrote a manga with his son as the title character.
