A New Macross Friend






A good way of clearing some space as well as converting asset to cash to fund my Gundam kit campaign was to sell off my 1/48 VF-1S Hikaru on eBay locally. Not only did I get some spare cash but the biggest surprise came when I realized my buyer is a frequent reader of my blog and is also someone as passionate as I am about Macross. This new friend of mine have much liking for Yamato 1/48 & 1/60 scale of valkyrie toys. I shall introduce this new friend as Aaron. Aaron liking for Macross develops after watching Macross movie 'Do You Remember Love' and now he has plunged deeply into the world of Macross toy collection. I had requested Aaron to provide me with some pics of his Macross collection to be featured on my blog and he had gladly do so. His next progress will be getting more display cabinets for future expansion.

Nice collection he's got there. Those 1/48 valks look great in the ikea detolf.

You sure know a lot on valkyries and display cabinets pal. I'm envious too! My only 1/48 is only VF-1J with the GBP parts.

detolfs are really suitable to display all kinds of collectables. However, im still kinda hoping ikea comes out with a new variable with more larger width. XD

Definitely bro. Aaron had share some thoughts of posing valkyries on his stand and tips on weathering effect.

>> sl619
Oh yes, many are hoping for a wider width like you mentioned. I think the same too especially for put jet fighters model and tank that take up more space. Hope Ikea will answer their prayers....

Hey everybody,

Aaron here. How you all doing? Yeah, that's my collection and I'm enjoying every minute of it, finding deals in eBay, meeting like minded toy collectors and talking about out shared interests. :D I was really so surprised when the Dennis told me to go visit his blog on toys and I realised it was the one and only Dennis, the one who wrote "forever plotting to expand my toy collection!" haha. Dennis' a great guy.

I have gotten about 80% of what I wanted. Once the collection's more complete, I've invited Dennis to come over to take pics and post them (he's a way better photographer than I am).

Upcoming:
- 1/48 Hikaru Super VF-1S with Clear Parts
- 1/48 Roy Focker Super VF-1S in Gerwalk
- 1/48 Max DYRL Super VF-1A with Stealth Super Parts
- 1/48 VF-1A Mass Production Cannon Fodder
- 1/48 VF-1A Kakizaki with Super Parts
- 1/48 Stealth VF-1J in Urban Camo GBP

I should stop. But I can't help it. :D

Also, I find the 1/60s inferior to the 1/48s, especially in fighter mode. :)

I saw Bandai's Hi-Metal 1/100 Super VF-1S Roy Focker at CSC yesterday for $120. Bang head, I didn't get it. ;(
