No Love for Southern Cross?
blacklotus posted a topic in Anime or Science FictionI'm kinda sad that Southern Cross is not much loved by anyone from both sides of the Pacific ocean. Anyone has any idea if this TV series is a big flop in Japan when it was originally released? I mean, we know Macross is huge, even before the Macross Plus revival, with tonnes of toys made for it, and Mospeada is currently enjoying a nice revival in the toys re-release. But I am doubtful if I remember seeing toys in Japan for Southern Cross in the original 80s release, and even more doubtful if any toys will be re-released in the near future. I hope anyone can provide info if this series is really a flop back then, and why so. Many thanks. p.s. I don't mean Jeanne released as Dana Sterling on a vacuum cleaner in the 'Robotech' toyline in USA. I mean Jeanne released as Jeanne in Japan. And I don't remember seeing any Bioroid released either. Correct me please if I'm wrong. Thanks. p.p.s. What I really really want to find is the song CD of the show. They're hauntingly beautiful (the ending song, and the Zor song of the flower legend. And not to sound blasphemous on a Macross forum, but imo, I think they're even more beautiful than the Macross songs) nb: Found this in wiki: The three titles share some of the same creators, and Macross is referenced by character cameos and inside references by the latter two series. However, the basic stories are unrelated. Southern Cross was the least successful of the Super Dimensional banner and was actually cancelled due to low ratings, forcing the scriptwriters to hastily conclude the series. No wonder the last episode always felt rushed, trying to tie all the loose ends in the last episode #23. sigh...
1/48 SOUTHERN CROSS BIOROID PART II
captain america posted a topic in Anime or Science FictionHappy New Year 2022, y'all! Hopefully everyone had a happy, restful and safe holiday season, because I'm about to be a pain in your butt... Or rather, wallet. As promised back in Spring of last year, I'm offering the Biopsycher Bioroid (hereafter HEMORROID) as a follow-up kit to last year's 1/48 BIO LLOYD. This kit, unlike the Bio-Lloyd, will include a cockpit ball, and will include both pistols featured with the Bio, but with corrected details for the officer's version (Thanks to Ted E.) The kit will be available in 2 versions: -HEMORROID/BUG FACE only (no sled) -HEMORROID/BUG FACE W/HOVER-SLED Please take note: the BUG FACE parts will only be available for the pre-order window Looking to get 30 orders, so who's in?
Roil Tiluvo Bioroid Assault Craft Model
Podtastic posted a topic in Anime or Science FictionGood Day Folks I am in discussion with Captain America about making a model of the Bioroid Assault Craft from Super Cavalry Southern Cross and would like to gauge the interest of members on this forum: http://mechajournal.com/2015/11/roil-tiluvo-aerospace-assault-transport/ https://ixquick-proxy.com/do/show_picture.pl?l=english&rais=1&oiu=http%3A%2F%2Fmechajournal.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2017%2F04%2FRoil-Quekasm-Air-Defense-Boat-with-Roil-Tiluvo-Assault-Corvette.jpg&sp=6a9c2200c3a395ea0f6f15a5e181364c The model will be around 20 cm (7 or so inches) in length, have a dark translucent canopy (potentially) and a rotatable under turret. The intention is to have a quality/accurate model but with minimum bells and whistles to keep it affordable. Ballpark figure per model would be around 170 - 180 Canadian dollars per kit (note this may change depending on actual costs) and we would need around 25 to 30 orders. If Cap takes on the project you will then place your directly orders with him as per usual. As many persons may be financially committed at the moment this project is targeted for later in the year, but should there be enough interested persons up front it may kick off sooner. If you are interested in then please indicate this by posting on this thread.
