Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Say, Kaiba, was it true that someone forgetful in the Macross team left the tape (or film, script?) of an episode on a train? As far as I am aware, yes. Some unnamed soul left a mostly-complete master reel for one episode on a train, which necessitated a brief but frantic search of the local rail s...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Oh man. that lightened up my mood after a hectic week at work. is the robotech fanbase worse than RWBY?(the way i see them they treat RWBY as the source of ALL!!!! memes, pose and everything in between.) As I know a grand total of one RWBY fan and he doesn't do that, I don't think I could draw a co...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Kaiba, you once said in this thread that the colony fleets just don't jump to the middle of nowhere, but they send out probes first. How these probes are like? Are they manned or not? 's not really probes, it's pilot fleets. (Printed materials draw a comparison to pilot fish.) One of the main dutie...

Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

And, hypothetically, what if cybernetics and genetic manipulations become more widespread in UC, do you think most people would want the pre-cognitive/telepathy abilities of Cyber-Newtypes, or just being stronger and more beautiful than they are just now? Are being Newtypes really that desirable fr...

Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

I think the way Fukui is spinning off their existence is essentially through public backlash over them. According to the radio drama that came out, the Federation still has yet to acknowledge the real Universal Century Charter (despite protests to do just that). Just in case it wasn't already immed...

Re: How funnels are controlled?

Say, anyone here familiar with how friend-foe identification happens in U.C.? Beside sending and receiving signals, or thermal imaging? Do funnels have on-board cameras to help identify the target, or do they have to rely completely on the pilots' intuition? Oddly, I can't recall many mentions of f...

that 6th singer just reminds me of what Nanoha did with its later entries. Add characters upon characters whose stories are MEH. looking at you Vivid and Vivid Strike. though in the case of Delta if focused on only one of its important aspects. is it safe to say that Delta is the equivalent of Nano...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So, according to the latest Delta news, the next movie will feature a sixth Walkure member. Allegedly. Who could that be? Mirage, or one of the dropouts? Who cares? If it's someone new, then it's just one more underdeveloped character in a story that's already packed fit to burst with undeveloped s...

Not for the actual challenge, which was brought to everyone's attention by a Twitter user:

But the actual trademark filing is now there for all to see:

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So here's a spot of interesting news...

Big West apparently successfully challenged Harmony Gold's trademarks on the Macross name, logos, and other related marks in the UK. Macross's owners, not Harmony Gold, now hold the Macross trademarks in the UK.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Is it that bad? Considering people buy these books for the technical detail... kinda, yeah. The VF-31 book was just kind of a mess, and the reason why is right there in the title. Instead of writing a book for the Surya Aerospace VF-31 Kairos that's going to be the next main fighter of the New UN F...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Managed to get my hand on a Master File VF-31. What the heck are the VF-31AF, VF-31HM, VF-31L, VF-31V, VF-31R, VF-31JW, and VF-31U, whose biggest differences are wing/canard designs? Filler. Variable Fighter Master File: VF-31 Siegfried is a real mess. Most of it is shamelessly copy-pasted material...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

What advantages does the VF-31 have over the VF-25? Hard to say, given that the VF-31A shares most of its parts in common with the VF-25A. The big ones are going to be the multimission flexibility conferred by the ordnance container system inherited from the YF-30 Chronos and better passive stealth...

Macross Chronicle indicates that Basara Nekki's VF-19 Custom started out as a trial production VF-19F Excalibur that was built in the 37th Long-Distance Emigrant Fleet, pre...

You missed some critical details here. No I didn't, you just missed the other posts talking about it. In fact, a good chunk of your "correction" is wrong.

Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

The difference is that Full Frontal himself never actually met Amuro or Layla unlike in Z and ZZ where the newtype ghosts may have been just an "echo" of the person since they met before. If we consider Full Frontal as a clone, he also met Char's "ghost" as well so he's also quite distinct. Full Fr...
