Macross Chronicle 37










One very special valkyrie featured this issue is VF-171 Ex. Awesome fusion of VF-25 and VF-17 that appeared during Macross Frontier timeline. VF--171 Ex has also add-on armour for extra protection. No news if this valkyrie will come in kit or toy yet. No toy reveal on this issue again but they do throw in some great pics. See you next issue!

The 3rd to last image of Max in his valkyrie with the little people in his pocket trying to escape from the enemy ship is a classic. I must say, Macross is the 1st anime from Japan that I've watched as a kid. In my opinion, I think the Macross series tops Gundam in every way.... but I am still a mega Gundam fan.

Ha! Ha! From the way your put it, it seems that you are switching affiliation. Ha! Ha! Yes, for me, it's Macross ranking 1st and Gundam next. It's so cool to have transforming robots those days. You are definitely the ultra Mega Gundam fan! G.G ~ Gundam Guy!

The 171 is my favorite valk from Frontier, still think the 25 is awesome. Shame it was basically cannon fodder, do hope bandia release a 1/72 kit.

The cool images that always appear like the disguised max, are the full size on the a4 page?

I'm hoping Bandai has VF-171EX in the form of toy. Let's have both toy and kit for the pleasure of all of us. Hee! Hee!

The drawing image is not in A4 size. They are around 30% of A4 size I guess.

I don't understand Japs too man! I'm helping a friend to buy and took pics of them before handing over as incentives for outfronting the money and collecting them for the shop. Hee! Hee!

I cracked when I see the picture of Valkyrie in uniform disguise. When I was a kid, I would have buy the idea but now I find it quite .... Funny for the enemy not to notice. LOL

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Kids those days were very simple-minded. I bought it too when I watched Macross in the past.

Lol, Max's Valkyrie in uniform brings back memories. It was cool when i watched it as a child. Now looking at it again I find it crazy how i manage to buy that idea last time :D

And thats a cool merger of the YFs to form the 171. Didn't know the predecessors were the YFs. Pardon my lack of knowledge on macross. I only seen the first one plus frontier!

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

I think the first Macross & now frontier are coolest too!

G.G. said...

Yeah the original was the best (no other anime can beat it....maybe Naruto, but thats on a totally different level), I like the first 2 & last 2 episodes of Frontier. The rest were a bit 'meh'. I especially don't like all the extreme fan-services in Frontier.. is too much and irrelevant.

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

I don't watch Naruto except for the movie. It's nice and I can't stay focus on anime that's too lenghty. Frontier is cool to me but like you say, it's copying a plot of the very 1st Macross at a certain extent. That I agreed and it probably want the fans want.

In fact, I have the same thinking of similar plot when I watch Gundam Seed. Kira was like following the path of Amuro.
