It is my pleasure to bring to MacrossWorld a random oddity from the depths of some Japanese guy’s basement.
Yes, it’s the legendary Macross Zentradi Stamp Kit, by Nichimo. I had never seen one in person, never saw a review or anything, struggled to find any data on it for decades, so I figured it deserved its own epic story, complete with a beginning, middle and end.
So, on a rainy day in the Asakusabashi district of Tokyo, three MW guys — Save, Bariaburu Faita and myself — sat down and made some history. Or at least recorded a video for your viewing pleasure.
In Part One, we talk about the background of the item and our personal search which took us halfway around the world.
