Also, the merchandise list for the exhibition is up. Not all goods have associated photos yet but..... My wallet is already hiding in fear...

http://www.macross-g....com/goods.html

I wonder if those goodies are COSPA products or not. The design of the Valkyrie mug is from that of the T-shirts from COSPA. But the web site tells those are "limited" things. And no news in the COSPA web site. Hmm.

I didn't feel like going to Ikebukuro, but should I go there? Hmm. Because I hate "エウリアン"...

More pics of goodies for the Genga Exhibition revealed:

Argh. I wanted a PSP case but not if it's just stock Sheryl and Ranka illustrations. That design with the VF-1J with all the pilots around it looks great, why couldn't they have used that??

I will definitely buy the Clear File with that design, though.

FIRE!!!!

Summary is here.

There is not Nakamura-san's name anywhere, but Kamiya-san's name. Where is Alto? And Michael is alive. After the Sayonara no Tsubasa's story, not the TV's?

But "Ozma who is fighting in the front line of the battlefield against the Vajra meets the another extraterrestrial "...That means during the battle against the Vajra. When is the timeline?

The reminder of the start date of the Anime movies in this autumn.

Who's on the poster card with the VF-1J fighter... I'm guessing it's Alto, Hikaru, ??? and Shin?

From left to right. Alto, Basara holding his guitar, Hikaru in the cockpit of the Valkyrie, Isamu, and Shin.

I can explain foreigners this picture is not a Robotech thing with those characters.

When I wore the Valkyrie T-shirt one day, a westerner was gazing at me for a while. I recognized Robotech is really famous abroad.

I don't know if I missed this story. It's kind of old. But I just stumbled across this site looking for 30th Anniversary stuff.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2012/04/25-1/a-look-inside-the-macross-30th-anniversary-celebration

I hope more is coming out. There is so much Macross stuff that I want like modern statues, a complete Macross Frontier soundtrack set, perhaps a Macross designed cell phone (I remember Evangelion and Eden of the East cell phones), anniversary books. I'm kind of disappointed so far.

Have to agree with you on the merchandise aspect....a nice companion artbook featuring many of the rare art from the exhibit would have been amazing.....missed opportunity I guess...

The only item I thought was unique the minmay plushie....but it should have come with a sound chip!!!!....

Erm, that is exactly what the very first item on the list is. ;) And it comes with a CD, too (unfortunately, jacking up the price).

I'll take your word for it....although with MacF on the cover (isn't it SDFM's 30th?).....I won't get my hopes up.....I was thinking of a "fancier" book more akin to the recently released MacF genga hardcover....you know...classier and more expensive! :rolleyes:

And will Tokyo Hunter carry this stuff??? ...Like they did the Minmay plushie??? I would probably want to pick up the "catalog" :wacko: .......

Well, we wont know until we see it! Having said that, Satelite will also be selling the MacF genga book at the exhibit - I'd be surprised if they covered the same ground with both publications.

http://www.satelight...post_002256.php

Then again, even from the initial flyers for it that were at MACROSS: THE DESIGN, this new exhibit seemed aimed more at Frontier (Sheryl was all over the flyer, whereas posters for THE DESIGN all featured Minmay more prominently).

And will Tokyo Hunter carry this stuff??? ...Like they did the Minmay plushie??? I would probably want to pick up the "catalog" :wacko: .......

Contact them and ask. This stuff goes on sale TOMORROW so ask now or risk not getting stuff.

Exactly the same links from the front page and the same information covered by the ANN article. :rolleyes:

Also, is it too much to ask that you dont drop chunks of Japanese text unless you have the time/are willing to explain it to everyone else? <_<

From the Famitsu web site. Now just 6.5 hours before the exhibition.

http://www.famitsu.c...23c9551f5d2.jpg

Can't wait to buy a T-shirt on this picture.

http://www.famitsu.c...23ce53b05aa.jpg

This one seems to be not for sale, but I want...

http://www.famitsu.c...23c95f8ddf9.jpg

About 670 USD, Hmm.

http://www.famitsu.c...23c960d42d3.jpg

See more.

Maybe it's still early in the anniversary schedule and some really good stuff is still coming out. A Minmay statue seems like an obvious idea and an easy sell.

I'm surprised at all those Macross II artworks in that famitsu link. I still have two or three large, I think movie sized posters on heavy paper I picked up when the show was released here in the U.S. The music was pretty good but as a whole Macross II was forgettable. I thought they were trying to distance themselves from it.

- Macross the Musicalture: release of the cast & character designs (nice 1/2 page tall images of the 6 main cast. Is El supposed to be a virtual idol?) and a brief summary (takes place in 2062 on Macross 29 [two-nine]) w/ play-dates (Oct. 3~8)

It's not quite hours away... but still, quite far. I, too, was thinking about it, until I realized that it's on the "far" side of Nara Prefecture. Bummer.

There will be specially-themed Macross stuff over at Tokyo Dome City Attractions from late September to November. They're going to re-decorate the big Ferris wheel ("The Big O" -- yeah, I know) with a Macross motif and hold a stamp rally, etc...

Aaaaaand..the LTTP award goes to...(drumroll)....RENATO! :rolleyes:

Hopefully the heavy rains will have stopped by them - talk about bad timing for the most torrential rains in years. >.<
