I never truly realized how big a Star Destroyer was until I placed these two side be side. Yes, I know the scale is a bit off (Star Destroyer is supposed to be 1.6km long, while the SDF-1 is 1.2k long), but even when the Star Destroyer being smaller than it should be, it simply DWARFS the SDF-1. Just look at the size of the bridge tower on the Star Destroyer. It's probably more than big enough to house the entire Macross City found in the SDF-1's leg!

Haha yeah. But to be fair, the A-Wing was more like the straw that broke the camel's back as the SSD just lost all its shields right before the moment of its collision. At least that's what I remember.

What I still find annoying up until this day is that even though they lost the Death Star II, I'm sure the Imperials still had more than enough naval firepower to wipe the floor with the rebel fleet as well as raze Endor's moon to the ground and kill off all those Ewoks.

Oh! my girlfriend got me this wall scrollu at the anime convention this weekend:

It's a shame that it says Robotech.. but oh well, still an awesome drawing. The Robotech store has it for 28 and it was only 17 at the con.

Maybe I can cover it with a macross logo somehow.

Cool wall scroll! ;) I have that same image on an old 80's Bandai Puramoderu brochure. And good thing it didn't say ROI 30 TECH. :lol:

Finally stumped up and bought a Brownie!

Snagged it on ebay for £81.

Insurance policy incase any zentran/regults/vajra break into my house, this should take the heat and keep the rest of my collection safe! :p

Does this version fix the shoulder problem? thanks.

Yes. The shoulder issues were already resolved for some time so you don't need to worry about them. The only time you'd probably have to think twice on the shoulder issue are for the really old releases which you usually only find as 2nd hand.

No, sorry I don't.

On another note, I just found out that the latest Lego AT-AT Wlaker is roughly 1/65 scale (assuming it's 22.5m tall). I placed it beside my VF-0 and my gosh does the AT-AT suddenly look small now! It feels like the Macross battroids can easily push a walker down hahaha.

And to think the AT-AT was designed to be super slow due to its size. But a valk with a comparable size to an AT-AT is more agile/maneuverable than any of even the smallest Star Wars starfighters like the A-Wing.

Heh.

Good motivation to clean his room

well funny enough the space in and around his Macross collection has always been very tidy, its the rest of the room which is a mess!

he left a few Valks with me as he didn't have the room to display them all but now hes re arranged his room quite a bit and made more room so now he wants his other Valks back.

I paid more for the D-Arts Mewtwo and Megaman then I should have, but that's what happens when you stupidly pass on the D-Arts line for years. I wanted them both new though, and I needed them for my Super Smash collection. Now if I could just track down an affordable Figma Pit...
