There's some fab fandubs of comic scenes on Youtube, it's MTMTE/LL mostly but there's some great stuff such as Tarn learning of Megatron's defection and Megatron talking to Ravage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:31 PM)

Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

@  Otaku : (29 November 2020 - 01:06 PM)

@Bass X0 Weird how they come close, with the likes of Onyx Primal and Nemesis Prime (Universe 2003), but no actual evil gorilla...

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

Yeah, the DX Chogokin Draken III I got was at an actual Bandai Tamashii Nations store in Akihabara. I almost passed on it, as I did not know the character or anything. They had the others on display, but none for sale.

Glad I did get it though, it is a great design.

I didn't like Zero.  I'd like to see it again, because I remember everyone being blown away by it (Macross Plus levels of awesome) and finding it highly, highly disappointing.  I do like how it ties in with Frontier.

 

Frontier is a love it / hate it thing.  It's my favorite Macross series (and that says a lot given how much Fire Bomber I listen to).  It's very much Macross - almost to excess - but I think that's part of the charm.  You have to get through the early parts, imo, for the later half of the series to really hit home. 

 

Macross 7 is a lot of stock footage, some really great designs, and the best music you'll ever get in a Macross project.

Don't forget the drums in Veffidas' VF-17.  Although I think Rey did most of the piloting.

 

I'm not tech savvy enough to have figured out how to watch Delta. I'm holding out hope that it'll get released once HGUSA loses the license.  Figure we'll get DYRL, a Zero & Macross Plus reissue, and then Frontier to start. Then hopefully Delta and (*crosses fingers*) 7.

Actually, all the Delta Blu-Rays have English subtitles, done by professional Anglophone fans who moved to Japan. You'll have to shell out a lot of money, but you can easily support Macross as a foreign fan in this regard.

Should have started with "The Galaxy is Calling Me" and then gone into Macross 7.  The first 12 or so episodes of 7 are awful.  Space vampire mystery adventure.  With stock footage. 

 

Transformations in Frontier are just like that.  Really been that way since Macross Plus and DYRL.  They're just not doing the slow, super detailed lookitexpensive shots.

 

Although, to be fair, Battle Frontier and Macross Quarter are smaller ships than the SDF-01*, and were designed to transform from the start, unlike the original Macross.

Received the DX Chogokin VF-1J today.  It’s really nice.  I do wish that the bar that connects his legs to his upper body wouldn’t come unclipped so easily.


I might get rid of it.  As while Hikaru is my favorite Macross character overall, his VF-1J Valkyrie is my least favorite Valkyrie.

 

Any of the VF-1S, the other VF-1J’s, or even most of the VF-1A’s are all preferred by me.

My wife got me the premium finish Arcadia SDF-1 for Christmas, and it is hugging amazing.

Along with that, I finally finished my Bandai "custom reissue" Hikaru Strike Valkyrie. Reissue VF-1A with modified numbers, vintage VF-1S head dyed to matchvthe weirdly nice pinky white plastic of the reissue, and vintage Strike armor. Arms were shaved down to accomodate the vintage armor.

So I've been browsing Ebay a lot lately for older Anime that for one reason or another I never picked up on DVD, 2 of those are Macross 2 and Macross Plus, Should the Harmony gold deal expire the floodgates of Mcross titles flooding the west will be open. So I'm wondering if I shouldn't wait to see if we get better editions down the line instead of buying used DVD's?

I wouldnt hold my breath on macross 2. Its been pretty much disowned by everyone if i remember right. But its still got macross in the name so its possible

Macross plus is the exact opposite of course. If you MUST have it now, buy standard dvd and pick up the blu ray when/if hg looses the license

Tried to get the DX VF-1S DYRL Hikaru Valkyrie when it went live 3 AM Monday morning.  Ended up paying about 5000 yen more than retail, but at least I have it.

 

I must have gotten extremely lucky with Hikaru's TV VF-1J, as I got that at Amazon Japan no problem (I probably woke up when it was available).  Max's TV VF-1A, I didn't even know was coming until it had already sold out.  :doh

And today in "Dave finds out things after it's faaaaaaar too late..."

I had no idea that ADV put out a fun of Macross in the mid 2000's, let alone that Mari Ijiima reprises her role as Minmei in English.

Dang, I have the Animeigo DVD's but I totally would have gotten that.

Naturally it's far too late to find it on the net at a reasonable price.

Guess my only hope is to bank on harmony gold tanking in 2021, and hope whoever rescue licences the show puts it on Blu Ray and includes the dub.
