    Hi Guys... long time without upload new build pictures! Well, 2014 was a very busy year to me: Finally I got a House, so almost all my free time went to it But little by little I'm getting more time to the hobby, so finally I finished the YF-21. It has the option to go with the cockpit open or closed. Hope do you like it!

  8. Latest addition to my completed collection. A 1/72 scale VF-11B Thunderbolt, from Hasegawa, plus a 1/72 resin booster set from the Club M release of same. The Club M release also came with the Super Packs, so that's why I used the boosters on this one. As usual, more to be seen here.
  9. Hey guys, I'm back again trying to clear out more inventory. I hate letting these go but priorities are priorities. I've sold many times here and I am a legit seller. I also will give better deals if you buy multiples. For now I'm only willing to ship to lower 48 states... so prices do NOT include S&H. I reserve the right to sell locally first if there are local buyers in the Orange County area. This helps me in not having to go through with getting a box and proper fillers in order to get these out. These boxes are big so it is not cheap to ship them out as most of you are aware. Prices are negotiable so please feel free to inquire if you are interested. VF-0S QF-2200D-B Ghost Booster combo pack ......................................................................... SOLD VF-0A QF-2200D-B Ghost Booster combo pack ......................................................................... SOLD YF-19 Fold Booster Fast Pack .................................................................................................... 225.00 (box is okay with normal shelf wear on bottom corners, never taken out) 1/48 Low Vis Wood Land Combo ................................................................................................ 280.00 (boxes are in good condition with some shelf wear on bottom,,, never taken out) 1/48 Strike Fast Pack ..................................................................................................................

  10. Hey guys, returning after a long hiatus. Quick question, I remember back in the day the Animeigo version of SDF Macross was THE version to get, however in my cash strapped student days that was a difficult pill to swallow. These days the Animeigo version is out of print. Is there anything comparable on the market now? I've heard the ADV version is... not as good.
  11. Hello everyone. So, I'm modeling the Isamu helmet on 3d. But I got really stucked at the back part of the helmet as you can see on these pictures. If you can help me out with some reference images, or ideas, or anything it would be great. Thanks!!
  12. Has Bryan Cranston ever mentioned or acknowledged his role as Isamu in Macros Plus, during any interviews you're aware of? I've been watching a few of them and he never seems to so much as even mention his anime voice acting days. Another question.....is there any behind the scenes footage of the English VAs doing their performance on Macross Plus? That would have been cool extra on the DVDs/BDs.
  13. It's time for me to let go my extra copies to make room. These toys are virtually new which only have been opened and removed from box to inspect contents, but never been played with. The box of each toy is spectacular with intact corners, no shelf wears or scuffs.

  16. Finally finished! The 1/48 scale VF-19A Excalibur "SVF-569 Lightnings" kit from Hasegawa. I went with a darker shade of gray, mainly because when I went to the hobby shop to buy the paint, they were out of the correct shade. The original color was for various F-16's, and this shade is too, so no complaints. I think the darker shade looks nice, anyways. The biggest challenge was masking off the area between the black and gray, while keeping the line for the lightning bolt decal. Easy solution- make a photocopy of the decal sheet, lay down a long strip of tape, and cut out the decal with a razor while on the tape. Now you've got a masking template. As always, you can see more here.
  17. I watched DYRL and just finished SDF. SDF was great! Question is what should I watch next? (and any ideas where I can watch for free would be great too)
  18. Just like the title says, did someone here build this? http://flickrhivemind.net/Tags/mecha,papercraft/Timeline
  19. Here is my latest completed work. Hasegawa's 1/72 VF-11B Thunderbolt from Macross Plus. Cockpit Detail: And with this kit finished, I have finally completed my Macross Plus collection!
  20. Interview with Shinichiro Watanabe on 10 November 2012 during Anime Festival Asia(“AFA”) 2012 Shinichiro Watanabe was a guest speaker during AFA 2012 and James Wong and I were given the opportunity to conduct an interview with the legendry director. Shinichiro was the co-director with Shoji Kawamori of Macross Plus and the director for Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop. The interview was held at Singapore Expo Hall on 10 November 2012 with other people representing other media from Hexishe, Anime Shrine, SG Café and Campus.com. Thus, questions below are a compilation of questions asked by the group collectively. All his answers were conveyed to the Media in English through a translator and as such some content maybe lost in translation. Question : Watanabe-San, your work has many different genres, like “Cowboy Bebop” has space with cowboys / bounty hunters and “Samurai Champloo” has hip hop mixed with Samurais. How do you combine all these different genres and unrelated elements together so seamlessly that it feels natural ? Watanabe : That’s a very difficult question! (Laughs) I always get inspired on the spot, at any given moment. I constantly think how it will be interesting, exciting or unique if we can combine and mixing genre A and genre B. I would like to mix different things in my work: the word “Champloo” in ‘Samurai Champloo’ comes from an Okinawan term ‘chanpuru’ which means “something mixed”. Cooking is essentially mixing of different ingredients and that would be a mixture, right? So in Samurai Champloo, I combined two completely different elements, a traditional samurai story and trendy hip-hop music with the hope that it would be an exciting and interesting story. Question : There was news a while back that there will be a live action Cowboy Bebop movie, could you advise us on the status of the live-action movie ? Watanabe : The Limited Edition Blu-Ray set of Cowboy Bebop TV series will be released in Japan in December 2012. Amongst the extras in the limited edition set, there is a segment where I directed a 5 minutes filming of the live-action movie. Question : In your latest new anime “Kids on the Slope”, a lot of famous and popular jazz music was used in the soundtracks. Did it costs a lot to get the license of these music to be used in the anime ? Watanabe : The music used in “Kids on the Slope” were “cover versions” and not the original versions. Japanese musicians were used to recreate all jazz music for the recording of soundtrack in the anime. Therefore the licensing was not as expensive as using the original scores of the music. The biggest challenge is the synchronizing of the music in the anime. Question : Who chooses the soundtracks to be used ? Watanabe : The anime was actually adapted from a manga of the same name and therefore the jazz pieces which was in the manga were used in the anime. Where sections where the music was not in the manga, I would select the soundtrack for the anime. Question : You have worked together with Shoji Kawamori on “Macross Plus”. How do you find working with him ? Was he a very difficult person to work with ? Watanabe : Shoji Kawamori is a very strange person (laughs !) He is a bit crazy but very fun ! Question : When you mention that Shoji Kawamori is a very funny man, how so ? Watanabe : (Laughs) He is always using the lego sets to figure how to transform the mechas. And whenever I try to consult him about the Macross Plus project, he would be busy with his lego sets. Question : You also worked with the famous musician Yoko Kano, what is your opinion of her ? Watanabe : I think Yoko Kano is a genius !, I will try to work with her as much as possible in my projects. In Samurai Champloo, hip hop music used and this type of music was not suitable for Yoko Kano therefore I did not ask her to join me in that project. However for the jazz music in “Kids on the Slope”, I knew straight away I had to get Yoko Kano onboard. I would try to get Yoko Kano in projects where the music is suitable for her talents. Question : How does it feel to be able to direct Macross Plus which is one of the great work in the Macross franchise which is well loved and known by the Macross fans? What difficulty did you experienced when you directed this film? What is the most memorable film you did and why ? Watanabe : When the first Macross TV series was aired in television, I was a teenager. I did not think at that time I will have the opportunity to direct a Macross film in the future. But when I was offered to co-direct Macross Plus, I felt honored and extremely happy for the opportunity to be in an anime project which is one of my childhood favorite. Whenever I direct a film, I always keep this in mind, never put too much explanation in the story, if I put in too much details in the story, there won’t be much room for the viewers’ imagination. And a good story must have good balance, if the story is too complicated, the viewers would have difficulty following the story. That is why I am always taking care of the balance. Question : Then how do you simplify the story ? Watanabe : As I am the director of the film, I would know the background of the story and every aspect of it. In order to strike the right balance so as to not make the story too complicated. I would create the “other me” which is ignorant of the background of the story and would see whether the story would be easy for the “other me” to follow. The “other me” would be like an audience watching the film the first time. In respect of the Macross Plus project, as Shoji Kawamori was from the original Macross TV production team and he knows everything about Macross, I always check with Shoji on any questions that crop up in the project. Question : Was there any differences in direction between the two directors ? Watanabe : That is a very good question (laughs). Sometimes such things do happen, we have different opinions and directions. But as Shoji Kawamori is the from the original production team, I respected him and would follow his opinions. Question : Which is the most memorable film that you directed and why ? Watanabe : Cowboy Bebop…it is the first film that I have a free hand to do what I wanted. Question : What kind of inspirations that you put in Cowboy Bebop that makes you feel that it would be a much better film ? Watanabe : Everything…like the character, the feelings and the atmosphere. In Cowboy Bebop, I can put in my point of view and see how the world according to myself. This is the first film that I was able to convey my point of view freely and I can see the whole picture according to my vision. Question : Last month Production I.G. used their kick starter to fund their anime. Kick Starter is a project where Studio IG has asked members of the community for funds to fund their anime. In your opinion would this be the choice of studios to fund their anime? Watanabe : If I could get a bigger funding with kick starter, I would definitely consider using it. However I must first discuss with the producers first. That concludes our interview with Shinichiro Watanabe. And with that we thanked Watanabe, wishing the director the best of luck in his future projects. Please look forward to his work in the coming year! Special Thanks goes to Lim Wee Ling, Stephanie Seah, Michelle Tong of Asia PR Werkz Pte Ltd and Shawn Chin of Anime Festival Asia for arranging and assistance for the interview.
  21. Hi all! I have some 1/60 Yamato Macross Plus valks for sale. I have always loved Macross (and Macross Plus specifically), but it is time for me to part with my very modest collection. I bought these valks using the Macross World Forums and I wanted to offer them here first before I went anywhere else. For sale are the 1/60 YF-19, YF-21, and VF-11B. I also am selling the Fast Packs for the YF-19. Details for the YF-19: My favorite valk by far (although the figure itself fell short of my expectations). This one has been transformed the most, and unfortunately has been messed with the most. The box has moderate wear and the figure itself suffers from the white stress marks on the joint in the neck of the fighter (See pics). I have shaved down the two nubs of the beige plastic that touches the gray pieces in the neck to help with transformation and to have there be less pressure on the neck pieces in general (See pics). There is also a spot on the underside of the right wing where it connects to the main wing body that has some slight discoloration. I have included a picture of the left wing which does not have this issue for comparison (See Pics). This is not visible at all in any mode since that portion of the wing is always folded in some manner. Price: $140 Details for the YF-21: Has been transformed a number of times as well. The figure is in excellent condition and I have even kept the plastic wrap that surrounds the figure's wings while in the container. Box has moderate wear and there are scratch marks on the top-back of the box. One thing to note is that I have left the knee-cap armor (?) removed from the character while in fighter mode. Price: SOLD Bundle Offer: YF-21 and the YF-19 TOGETHER. Price: $300 total (includes shipping). This is a FIRM offer. Details for the VF-11B: Has been transformed a number of times as well. The figure is also in excellent condition. Box is in good shape with no noticeable scratches. SOLD Details for the YF-19 Fast Packs: Have never been used or mounted on the YF-19. Box has moderate wear with a small scratch and a noticeable tear on the back side. SOLD Shipping is a flat $10 for any item. I will combine shipping for however many items you buy. So if you decide to buy the whole lot, then you pay $10 for shipping total. If my prices are too high, or if I am too out of touch with reality, then please send me a polite PM. I have been out of the Macross scene for awhile so these are numbers I have come up with doing just some quick look-ups on this site and a few others. Thank you for your time and please PM me with any questions. Edit: Items Sold and prices lowered.
  22. So long story short I had some friends over a few days ago, we were checking out some of my toys, and someone DROPPED my 11B. I feel a piece of me missing without an 11B in my collection, so I need a new one. Must be in good condition, preferably no stickers applied, MUST contain all accessories and original box. I am looking for an 11B with super parts, no 11C's! So let me know what you've got and we'll see if a deal can be struck, US sellers preferred but I'm open to other options, I'm on the straight shooters list so just let me know, I'm counting on you MW!
