Macross in the weirdest places

Not sure if this is a direct reference to Macross, but on the back of a Revell snap together Apache helicopter:IMG_20200902_164522.jpg.58ecc051a46a46dffa550f1ae7758638.jpg

Personally I have never see these markings on an Apache, but if it does exist out there, someone please let me know.

Very random.

 

unless it is for Halloween, do you do Halloween in Argentina?

We have, but without the "children get candy from stranger houses" thing... too dangerous for that.

Only parties and stuff.

I just now spotted - by absolute chance since I only glanced up from this computer while posting here - a VF-1S Roy chunky monkey on the floor of a child's room in the present delivery scene of Arthur Christmas!  Lemme see if I can find a clip...  Yup, @2:17:

I have a winner.

Macross music is listed and was present on a tape recorder buried down in a hole at a remote area where human bones were found.  A trend of missing people has continued at this location in Japan.  A very creepy true story. The mention of the Macross music is at 4:20

Grammar: capitalized “Macross” and caught and corrected a run on sentence.

Not necessarily the weirdest place as the series features lots of Macross & Studio Nue cameos, but Episode 9 of Orguss features the salvaging of a VF-1J or VF-1D from an old battlefield. There's also a Studio Nue Chimera sitting on a table aboard the Glomar in the scene immediately preceding it.

In the 80's movie Spies Like Us, jump to 3:14 or you can see it on HBO Max.

And in the front, are some VF-1 Shoulders

Both I am thinking from the 1/144 Imai kit, will need to check!

Must have gone to the Star Trek School of Greeblies (U.S.S. Stargazer)...

I was in Barnes & Noble the other day and came across a book on drawing chibi-style anime characters. Much to my surprise the cover, both front and back had various Macross characters on it. It had Minnay in her DYRL dress, Mylene, Ishtar, Sara, and a VF-J on it.
