    SCOOP thread!

    Found this on a Chinese toy blog: February 26 for sale: Model 1 / 100 Macross F Movie YF-29 Saotome machine 1,200 Yen February 26 for sale: Model 1 / 100 YF-29 Ranka Ver. 1,500 Yen February 26 for sale: Model 1 / 100 YF-29 Shery Ver. 1,500 Yen
  2. Those are some great suggestions guys, thanks! You know, I jsut watched the episode last night where Minmay won the Miss Macross contest (Ep 10 I think) and I'm surprised they did do more with the swimsuit figure that just came out....now crown or cape or trophy?
  3. I'm rewatching the original SDF Macross right now and forgot how adorable Minmay is as a character! I love the actress's voice who does her. I dont know how they did it...the managed to make her adorable and somehow a bit sexy at the same time. I'm thinking a figure of her would look good amongst all my valks... I see a bunch on eBay but I figured I'd ask the gang: which Minmay figure do you think is the best? I'm looking for something that captures the "cuteness" of her face and personality.Any recommendations are appreciated!
  4. Decisions decisions... Any advice on which one to get? http://www.hlj.com/product/YMT00170 http://www.hlj.com/product/YMT00168 http://www.hlj.com/product/YMT00169 http://www.hlj.com/product/YMT00188
  5. Blue, how bad is the quality overall? Say on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being blu-ray HD quality?
  6. Thanks guys, good to know. It seemed to good to be true...
  7. Hey all, found some Malaysian version of Macross Frontier on DVD. They all say they are not bootlegs and are certified by the government. All come with English subs and are Region 0. Does anyone have any experience with this version? How is the quality of the pic and audio?
  8. Wow, your weathering work is incredible! Any chance of getting a quick tutorial on how to do it? I'm guessing Gundam pens for the panel lines? How do you do the weathering around the panels? Also, what matte spray do you prefer?
  9. Thanks guys, much appreciated. I want my wife to watch it with me so I gotta get it in English. She's a cool geek but not cool enough for subtitles. that link you gave me, Jason, is awesome. Those prices are fantastic. Thanks!
  10. Ok, this probably reeks of n00b but I dug around and didn't find an answer. I'm looking for a DVD set of SDF Macross but it seems like you cant buy it new in stores. (Yes, I'm new to all of this. OK, so IO turn to eBay...so many choices! I'd like to find Macross, NOT Robotech, with English dubbing. Whats my best bet? Thanks!
  11. Thanks Jason! That'd be awesome if there was a way to make our own. What I really want to do is a Minmay Guard, like this one (apologies if this belongs to someone on the forum. Hope its OK to post it.) I'ev got hi-rez scans of the decal sheets that came with the Hasegawa 1/72 scale MmG that I could reqwork (I'm a graphic artist) to the correct scale. I just don't know the first thing about printing them.
  12. If this is a n00b question, forvive me. I ran a search on the forum and couldn't find an answer so here goes: does anyone make 1/60 scale decal or sticker sheets for Valkyries? I'm considering getting an unpainted VF-1S and doing it up but I'd like to find some markings for it first. Any advice is appreciated! Rob
  13. Slightly off topic but do you guys think they will reish the VF-0A as well? Or did I already miss that boat?
  14. Does anyone have a bigger version of that Fury Belle graphic? I think it's make a great wallpaper image!
  15. Hm, maybe a Bandai version then? I'd be happy with either to tell you the truth.
  16. New Question: any chance of Yamato making a 1/60th VF-171 Nightmare Plus from Frontier? With NUNS color scheme?
  17. Some random questions about valkyries: 1. Does the Super ostrich ever appear in Battroid? In DYRL you see it in Gerwalk but that's it. 2. Come to think of it, any particular reason its called the "Super Ostrich?" 3. Does the Elintseeker ever appear in Battroid or Gerwalk? 4. In DYRL you see a valk in Armor Parts... the blue, white and red scheme. Do the Urban Camo or Woodland schemes appear ever or is this considered non-canon? 5. Are there 1/60 decal/sticker sheets for the Minmay Guard scheme available anywhere?
  18. Seto, yeah it can be super complicated; thanks again for breaking it down. MF will likely make more sense now if I look at it that way. PS- I've been making judicious and liberal use of the search button since my first (and hopefully last) noob move.
  19. Man, some of you guys are brutal with the newbie stuff! You can search and read this forum for days and not find the tidbit that you are curious about. It always cracks me up how quickly people get slammed for asking a legit question. I understand that Zentran in the non DYRL cannon means both male and female. However, its my understanding (from reading this and another forum and wikipedia) that MF mixes both DYRL and SDF cannon together. So, was jsut curious where that line came from. Thanks Seto for the great answer!
  20. Hey all, was re watching MF the other day and in ep 1 or 2 (I forget) when Alto saves Ranka and brings her up to hill side, she introduces herself and says she's "1/4 Zentran." I'm no expert but aren't the Zentran the males and the Meltran the females?

    Thunder Hammer

    Hey all, I've tried to avoid a n00b mistake by askign about the TH valk....I've searched the forum and searched google. Howeever, I cant find any info on the Thunder Hammer. So, could someone please explain what IS the Thunder Hammer? What show does it appear in? What role does it serve?
  23. Thanks, I'll see if I can find em.
