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!
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.
Wonder Festival 2017 Summer was held at Makuhari Messe on Sunday July 30.
The following gallery is roughly formatted into four main categories.
The first section deals with all items, both commercial and fan-made, for Macross, Megazone 23 and Mospeada.
The second section deals with all other toy and figure categories.
Sections three and four are photos from special displays to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of toy manufacturer Max Factory. One is a gallery of tribute art which was absolutely one of the highlights of the show. The other includes a few shots from a much larger gallery of all of Mac Factory’s products to date.
The Walkure Cafe was a temporary collaboration event which ran at Area-Q in Harajuku from April 7 to April 23.
The following gallery was taken by SpeakerPODcast co-host Adrian, who made sure to capture all the little messages and comments that the actual members of Walkure left for their fans.
As part of a collaboration with Macross Delta to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Macross, and to commemorate the upcoming release of the ‘Walkure Won’t Stop’ concert bluray on May 31, Softmap is currently displaying Walkure costumes from their concert in Yokohama, and entries from a Macross Modelers contest.
The display opened on Friday April 28, and the SpeakerPODcast Crew was there so early that staff were actually still setting it up!
