You should be able to make a decent "correct" background for your cel now that Shawn has tipped you where to look...

The only thing I was really interested in were the illustrations, in particular the Masami....

It's funny because I think it originally sold on Mandarake for under 500 USD and I thought that was high back then....at least I was able to snag a couple back when prices were "reasonable"....I am just glad none of these people who just now are getting into collecting Macross art and cels were not around 10-20 years ago...LOL!

Sadly, unless there is revised interest in SDFM I would assume all the value will die with us. I imagine that all the fellow SDFM lovers are in their 40s which typically is when you would have the most purchasing power. Makes sense that the prices have risen with the purchasing power of the fan base. 

Not sure if the new Macross shows attract young people to SDFM, hopefully they do. That way the Macross fan base continues to expand and get younger. That would insure it’s value.

I hope you are wrong....I am hoping the prices keep going even higher! 

I am all for attracting new younger fans...especially those with unlimited disposable income! :good:

Anyone's wallets a lot thinner this morning? 

Amazing Macross art once again via Heritage Auctions.....even more amazing were the final auction prices.....1000 USD was more or less the minimum price for the priviledge of owning anything Macross-related from today's listings....

A sampling of the more impressive selections.....

Macross Hangar Illustration - (Artmic? Unused ARII/IMAI boxart?)....7500 USD

https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/shigeru-komatsuzaki-macross-robotech-valkyrie-science-hangar-illustration-peinture-originale/a/7257-51040.s?ic16=ViewItem-BrowseTabs-Auction-Archive-ArchiveSearchResults-012417&lotPosition=0|31

The "Hangar" illustration can be found in the Macross - Magazine for Anime and Hobby Fan ARII/IMAI booklets Volume 5, page 16 - upper left hand corner....so it looks to have been concept art for the Macross Factory kits....maybe once they had the actual lineart for what the hangar was supposed to look like, they commissioned Takani instead and ditched the "Artmic" version?

An outstanding auction. Heritage Auction definitely out did themselves, again.
