Wow, nice shot in your attachment. And where can I get the file to print out those backgrounds?!

Thanks,

Wait--so how did the 1/2000 "prototype replica" become an HLJ exclusive all of a sudden? Haven't these been available for a while now?
Wasn't it previously only available in Japan by mail order direct from Yamato? So, in a sense, sales to other countries are exclusive to HLJ.

I like that first paragraph about why a 'Prototype Replica Kit' is better than a mass-produced item. Such magnificent BS. They might as well just say, the advantage the Prototype Replica Kit has over any possible production piece is that it's REALLY BIG.

Well, that would be telling the truth...which is NOT what keeps them in business!

Oh well...I'm perfectly satisfied waiting for the inferior production toy.

I love that base! Looks like water!
Sanjeev (Admin)
Haha...by "base", you mean dad's patio table? :P
They should disassemble it to the waist, and build a city around the patio table.

For those who aren't registered on the Macrossworld BBS, a Japanese gent has posted them on his photo hosting site. Color me impressed that this thing has a fully detailed Macross City!

Think about direction
Wonder why you haven't before.

Yeah, shots of the raw city (unpainted, unlit) were posted earlier in that gallery when this thing first came out. Remember? The one with, like, 600 fucking pictures of the shipping crate from slightly different angles?

Anyway, that shit is un-fucking-believable. If the toy actually came fully painted like that and with the lighting/clear window bits built in, this thing would truly be a masterpiece!
You are facing west. What will you do?

>> Stand, think about the place that you live

But wait ... _no_ stand?

Hey, that's the SPEC Dragonar/Falguen stand!
It's a pretty nice stand, to boot. Bandai should sell them separately.

Does this constitute flattery or infringement on the part of HLJ? That really is a beautiful shot.
Well, they're one of CDX's sponsors, and I'm sure they're smart enough to ask permission, so it's probably just part of the business relationship.

So it does need a stand?

Oh...and in the cartoon, this thing's piloted by a decidedly heterosexual...alien chick. Why would it have moe/loli/whatever images of under-attired/under-aged girls on the side???

I didn't know black people were aliens now.

Did you watch the show at all?
Sanjeev (Admin)
I did...I guess it was pretty forgettable! :P

Wasn't the pilot Meltrandi??? Hahha...I have no recollection of it being a black person!

Well...if you watch most future scifi, black people may as well be aliens! ;)

To answer your question about why have scantily clad girls on the side, well, it's nose art. Ever see WWII nose art? Same thing. Surprised we haven't seen more of it in Macross.
Sanjeev (Admin)
Hehe...Sisko...and the revolutionary decision to write an actual plot made DS9 my favorite! Still, the RARE exception...hardly the rule!

Well, you bastards made me look it up: the pilot of the Koenig Monster IS a heterosexual woman (black and non-alien). So...shouldn't she have some nekkid dudes on the side of her ship?? :P
The ground crew are the ones with the paint and brushes.

Yeah, they HAD to write a good story arc to get their fans back from Babylon 5. It almost worked. :)

Being heterosexual doesn't mean you don't appreciate the fine, supple form of your own gender. I am certain that was the reason behind the nose art. :)
Actually, one of the motivations behind nose art in World War II was to distract the enemy pilots. Of course, the pictures should be of scantily clad Vajra to maintain that reasoning! :)

Haha...c'mon...that's four pics just to stall the "reveal" while breaking up the wall of text. Builds anticipation. That other dude had pages of pics of just the shipping box...with no clever/witty/funny textual narration! ;)

The Koenig Monster with the nose art is kind of like the VF-1 Minmay Guard Valkyries, except, in the anime the Koenig Monster actually carried Ranka on board (kind of like the VF-11D Jamming Bird Variant: [www.steelfalcon.com])

Other than sheer decoration, I think it holds the purpose of indicating which singer (aka emulator, lol) that is on board and 'inspiring' the flyboys ;)
Sanjeev (Admin)
Eh...I was just trying to take a thinly-veiled shot at moe again!

Anyway, what the fuck was "emulator" supposed to mean in Macross II anyway??? I mean...what exactly was being emulated?

And she didn't actually OWN the Monster she flew, a giant Zentran Minmei otaku owned it.

I picture Canaria walking up to it for flight duty, seeing "monster girl" on the side, raising an irritated eyebrow and saying "Whatever." before climbing in and taking off...
