Song was neat, battle sequences were neat (although the mechs still look like asshole), settings were neat... but the design for all of the characters, both in clothing and overall animoo look, is just atrocious. Macross plus is what they should be mimmicking, not the modern anime garbage styles.
>>
>>5251149
Yes, a 2015 anime should mimic an anime from 1994. Makes sense to me.
>>
>>5251179
A 2015 anime shouldn't be following the same stupid standards we've had for the past 10 years when it's all garbage. A lot of the gundam OVAs and other standalone animes don't do this, it isn't impossible for a new macross series not to do it as well. Especially when the character design/overall animation was better in 1994.

So, yeah, a 2015 anime should mimic an anime from 1994. Unless you have shit taste and actually believe the stupid everyone has super thin everything and the worst clothing in the world style is a benefit to anything, in which case you're just part of the problem. It's essentially how 12 year olds draw anime, and somehow it got headway and now alot of major studios follow the same guidelines.
>>
>>5251195
Do remember that Plus is made with different audience in mind than this TV series.
You and your generation is not their only main audience you know. Stop acting like special snowflake and realizes there are kids that were born after you.
>So, yeah, a 2015 anime should mimic an anime from 1994

>>5251239
Detail simplified, proportions less human like and fit an easier to draw style, etc. They're opinions based on objective viewpoints.

Of course it's simplified to be easier to draw, it's a TV anime with a TV anime budget. Plus only had detailed designs because it was a 4 episode OVA.
>>
>>5251251
Simplified by style as well, that's the issue. Shading is reduced to a lot of stupid looking gradiants and shit.

Do you seriously think if they make it like you want to, it will sell enough to cover its production cost?

Supposedly they don't have the license to make the VF-1 in 1/60 scale.

Word on the street is that all licences are being renegotiated before delta so bandai could acquire the license if arcadia and big west can't come to terms.

>>5251793
This is practically confirmation that bandai either knew back in 2013 that the new hero valk was going to be a yf-30 derivative or they straight up demanded that it be one.

Now all that money they spent on a toy for the yf-30 that only appeared in one psp game has paid off apparently.

>>
>>5251860
They have announced SO MUCH AWESOME SHIT so yeah that is kinda weird.

I think I'll wait for a better color scheme on the vf-31 though. The blue white and grey looks ass.
>>
Hey guys, I might get skewered for this, but--I'm not really a Macross fan, I've just always wanted a Valk figure cause I like the design. So can someone explain to me the significance of the grey here? I know it's usually white.

>http://p-bandai.jp/tamashiiwebshouten/item-1000100289/

Also, are Hi-Metals generally regarded well? As I said, not really a Macross guy here, so i don't know much about the line.
>>
>>5251899
Sometimes the "movie"(DYRL) toys of valks are a slightly off-white or grey because that's supposedly how they are on-screen. That's all there is to it and I can never tell the difference unless it's pointed out.
>>
>>5251899
Also if you can't watch the tv series at least watch macross plus it's only 4 episodes and it's arguably the best installment.
>>
>>5251899
>are Hi-Metals generally regarded well?

Right now hi-metal is shaping up to be the most interesting line. All the releases have been great so far and the future looks VERY bright with several unusual and enemy mecha on the table.

I was kind of hoping for a new design scheme from Frontier, not more of the same. I don't even dislike Frontier's designs, but each macross kind of had it's own identity when it came to designs, besides Seven sharing stuff from Plus.

Why?
I hate the rainbow colored idol shit, but if you're going to bother having so many, at least have them pull their weight and have a purpose as pilots.
This cast is going to end up incredibly bloated, like Aquarion Evol's I can tell.
>>
>>5252479
The press release just says they'll be supporting the hero pilots but didn't say how.

I hope not Arcadia makes stuff bandai ignores and I like that they don't use die cast joints or painted die cast. It's good for bandai to have competition.

Bunch of clear photos here (nothing from the no-photo displays, unfortunately):

http://akibahobby.net/2015/10/tamashii_nation_2015_photo.html

The Hi-Metal Regult is looking so dang good! Cannot wait for it and the Glaug.

>>5255635
Oh man, part of me says I've got no need for a 1/35 scale VF-1, I've got plenty of awesome VF-1 toys already and the 1/60 v2s are superb. But part of me says I totally need a 1/35 VF-1 because it's still the best valk design ever! Well, we'll see if it actually gets made or not.

>>5255657
Yeah, Bandai Macross preorders can be hell to secure. On the upside, all the recent releases have had pretty good amounts of stock upon release. Even the super popular VF-19 Advance had some healthy restocks.
>>
>>5255716
>part of me says I've got no need for a 1/35 scale VF-1

Yeah, right..

Isn't it weird that they're showing/teasing all these new hi-metals but the yf-21 is nowhere to be seen. We know they've already got a prototype they showed it years ago.
>>
>>5251251

Better pic of the chogokin 1/35 DX. Sweet monkey jesus.
>>
>>5257633
Ye gods. It makes the 1/55 look like a SD joke machine.

Too bad the wingtip and rudder lights don't light up. Totally dropped the ball there, Bandai. (That's my excuse not to buy and I'm stickin with it for now.)
>>
>>5257633

That sculpt is so nice... the details and beveled roundness of it. Makes the design feel modern but without going full Ver-Ka. Also actual hip and shoulder mechanicals, fuck yeah.
>>
>>5258288

Does look amazing. Unfortunately, Bandai hasn't proven it can pull off a real toy at that kinda size. More like a museum piece, --no touching.

Bet the first release is a ragdoll and the subsequent ones are just a little better. Still, if all you want is shelf candy that looks good, top stuff to be sure.

Arcadia stuff doesn't rag doll. And bandai renewals only really have dodgy hip joints the rest is pretty solid I know I love my yf-29s
>>
>>5258693
>Arcadia stuff doesn't rag doll.

Ok but it's definitely NOT a toy, and more like a museum piece as you said. All those little tabs and sharp parts, complex transformations.
>>
>>5258702
it's a TOY for responsible adults, not for kids.

I transform then easily over the coffee table while watching news or tv shows.

little tabs and sharp parts are what make it not a current KID toy.

>>5258471

Not that guy, but the reviews I've seen of the DX Mazinger SOC didn't impress me. Nice to look at, but I prefer solid handling and, you know, stomping across the desk making noises and striking poses without stuff falling off.
>>
>>5258845
>playing with toys
Grow the fuck up already.
>>
>>5258845
I have the DX Maz. It's a jewel, but totally a museum piece. And this VF-1 will be bigger and transforming, so... yeah, probably not the best hand-candy.
>>
>>5258846

I have no idea what you are doing right now, but whatever it is, I can guarantee you are doing it wrong.
>>
>>5258845
That's not a fair comparison. The DX Mazingers were covered in removable parts. Like >>5258857 is pointing out, the transformation will probably be a little tedious due to the size but that shouldn't impair any of the modes in any way once fully transformed.
>>
Built-in intake covers might have been possible at 1/35 scale but it looks like they've gone with boring old removable parts. Oh well can't have everything.
