  1. Hey all, I've been off radar for a few years. Went thru some life changes and purged my entire Macross collection . (Some of you may now own those very figures!) Anyway, I'm back! But like many, I'm too late. I missed the preorder for the Bandai DX Chogokin VF-1S Roy Focker. And now its on eBay for upwards fo $444! Thats insane. Whats a fella to do? I want a VF-1S with Super Parts. Will there be another release? And if not, whats the next best thing? Arcadia? Never owned an Arcadia fig. All my stuff was Yamato. Thanks gang! Good to be back.
  2. @eggy99 Cool idea - I'll make a variant with orange accent and post it up this weekend. @JetJockey - also a really cool idea! I'll work on a design. For everyone, in case I never said it: these are all my designs and my artwork so happy to make adjustments and take ideas for new shirts!
  3. Thank you so much man! I'm glad you are happy with it and appreciate the plug.
  4. Thanks all! I went with H as it won the poll. Check it out here if you'd like to snag one. https://www.neatoshop.com/product/VF-X-Valkyrie
  5. Hi all, worked up a graphic design for a t-shirt and cant decide on the final layout. This is a subtle design that looks like something a team member might have received if they were a part of the Development Team for the VF-X fighter! Hope you dig it.
  6. Thanks! I cant recall where Claudia and Roy are during that scene where the VF-X is behind them and someone is testing the leg flexing. Macoss Island makes sense, but I dont think they ever really say...
  7. Hi all, random curiosity: The VF-X we see in Ep33 - where is that being tested/developed? Macross Island? I cant get to my DVDs right now or I'd check myself... Also, if any one has a decent pic of the Yamato figure - up close on the tail logo, I'd appreciate it. Working on a little t-shirt design.
  8. Thanks Falcon, I'll look into the shapeways option since true awesomeness escapes us at this time.
  9. Well, the shoulder on my 1/60 Yamato VF Roy Focker finally gave up the ghost and the arm completely fell off. I've been reading up on this and it sounds like my two options are: 1. somehow get a hold of an official Yamato replacement shoulder 2. Get a shapeways shoulder. My questions are: 1. How do I get an official shoulder? 2. The threads I've been reading here say the shapeways shoulder does not actually fit properly. 3. Is there a 3rd, more awesome option? What is a fella to do?
  10. So the only place left looks like Yes Asia but their price is ridiculous. Are they at least legit? I try and restrict myself to AmiAmi, HLJ and hobbySearch. so not too familiar with them.
  11. Hey all, can anyone tell me what "NY" is? Not familiar with this store.
  12. Ah yes, buried in a scoopda thread! Well, it probably merits its own thread, amiright?
  13. I dont know where else to put this so I'll just drop it here. Mods, feel free to relocate.. Found some news about the 30th Anniversary Event, including a 1/1 Messiah!! "The Macross 30th anniversary projects website announced on Friday that a 1/1-scale model of a VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie variable fighter (in the intermediate GERWALK mode) will appear at the 30th Anniversary Macross Super Dimension Exhibition ~Valkyrie de Sasotte!~ event from April 28 to May 6. The website also announced that a real-life Miss Macross 30″ contest, a stage musical with new material, and a museum display of the franchises designs are being planned. The 30th Anniversary exhibition will take place at the Sunshine City complex in Tokyos Ikebukuro district from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series the first anime in the Macross franchise premiered in 1982, and this year marks the mecha franchises 30th anniversary. The exhibition will also feature a recreation of the concert scenes of the Macross Frontier characters Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee, as well as a legendary songstress. Cosplay will be allowed at the exhibition, but there will be a 500-yen (about US$6) fee to use a provided changing room. A variety of commemorative goods will also be available for purchase at the event.

The separate Macross 30th Anniversary Exhibition Macross: The Design exhibit will feature Macross art from Minmay to Sheryl and Ranka from April 26 to May 13 at the Shibuya Parco art gallery in Tokyo. More information on the planned Macross stage musical and the Miss Macross 30″ contest will be available on the website next Friday.
  14. Any word if the Alto will be available again? The eBay option is ridiculously expensive...
  15. I'm interested in your Elint if you decide to unload it! PMing you...
  16. Man, I hope they do it in the CF color scheme like this: And offer it with the Elintseeker radome and "sail"...
  17. Holy moly WM! That is AMAZING work. Just breath taking. Say, where do you get those decal sheets with the random metal panels on it? I did a search for Aztek and Aztec decals but couldnt find anything. Thanks!
  18. Bah, didnt see that one...I never go in that subforum. Thanks!
  19. This is pretty darn impressive if you guys haven't seen it: http://www.toyark.com/news/lego-toy-news-12/lego-cuusoo-macross-vf1j-valkyrie-hikaru-video-5525/ Basically Lego has this deal where you can propose Lego kits and if it reaches 10000 votes, they will consider manufacturing it for sale. So vote this baby up!
  20. I'm surprised its not up on Hobby Search or AmiAmi yet either...No doubt one of them will have it cheaper than iShop2Go.

    SCOOP thread!

    So is the Cav going to be a shop exclusive or a mainline release? Any idea on release date?
  22. @valkfighter: Thanks for the info! Anyone got info on release date or preorders? Cant find anything on Google or Tokyo Hunter.
  23. Yes, I was thinking of doing that once I find a good decal printer to work with me on the graphics. Stay tuned! Jason, thanks! I'll PM you with details.
