The 7th annual DORO OFF modellers exhibit was held on from October 7 – 8 in Asakusabashi, Tokyo.

While Macross was not quite as well represented as in previous years, this show did include an amazingly customised Milia in her Queadluun-Rau, based on original Studio Nue design documents. Yamato was particularly well represented this year, with Yamato 2202 giving people an excuse to show off their love for the Andromeda – and show it off they did!

SPEAKERPODCAST EP.91 – Gotta have a party, GUNHED!

With the Superdimensional Orchestra behind us, and a Delta movie announcement only days away, the SpeakerPODcast Crew grabs a moment to catch up on all the recent events and goings on.

We met anison legend MiQ, discuss the latest Megazone 23 crowdfunding campaign, drop by JUNNA’s first solo gig, and discuss Mylene’s new voice actress in Uta Macross before hitting up 1989’s GUNHED at an exclusive theatrical screening. How does it hold up? Is it as bad as many remember it as being? And just how awesome is Shoji Kawamori’s GUNHED design!?!

SPEAKERPODCAST EP.90 – Superdimensional Orchestra

The SpeakerPODcast Crew has just come out of a performance that was 35 years in the making. A concert so powerful that it had people in tears. That’s right, it’s been less than 24hrs since the incredible Superdimensional Orchestra, and we’re here to talk about it while the melodies are still ringing in our ears.

But did you know that the concert saw the premiere of some actual new Macross animated footage as well?

And why is there so much whiskey in this podcast?

Join us, along with special guests Tom Bateman (hey, we haven’t had him on the cast since 2013!) and newcomer Greg as we recount this weekend’s experiences.

Timestamps and many, many photos follow the jump.

Softmap Macross Museum

Following on from the Macross Delta collaboration that was held earlier this year Softmap is currently holding a “Macross Museum” display at its No.1 Branch in Akihabara. Much of the Macross Delta merchandise that previously populated the display has been swapped out for some more vintage goods, mostly in pristine condition.

The following pictures were taken on September 10, 2017. I’ve also included some prototype Garland pics at the end – Arcadia currently has these on limited display on the 5th floor of the Radio Kaikan.

SpeakerPODcast Ep.89 – Anisong World Matsuri 2017


June 30, 2017 was a momentous day for Macross fans across the Pacific. It was the day that JUNNA and Minori Suzuki from Walkure made their overseas debut, at Anisong Matsuri 2017!

Richard and the SpeakerPODcast America gang were there and offer up all the details, this episode of the SpeakerPODcast. Warning – there is a lot of talk about Hamburgers ^^;
