SpeakerPODcast Ep.88 – Yamato 2202 Ch.2: Launch

Chapter 2 of Yamato 2202 recently completed its theatrical run here in Japan, which means it’s time for another Yamato
2202 cast!

Tim Eldred from ourstarblazers.com sneaks aboard the cast just before we flood the dock for take off to discuss the four episodes that comprise Chapter 2.

SPOILER WARNING – this entire podcast is pretty much a giant spoilercast for Chapter 2 of Yamato 2202.

SpeakerPODcast Ep.87 – Tomonori Kogawa & Wonder Festival 2017 Summer.

We went out looking for a paper mache Valkyrie, but somehow ended up in a small room with Ideon/Dunbine/Southern Cross Character Designer Tomonori Kogawa for FOUR hours… how on earth did THAT happen? (hint: Adrian).

We also go over all the latest toy news from Wonder Festival and OH THERE’S A NEW MACROSS DELTA MOVIE ON THE WAY! Time to GIRI GIRI AIgain!


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.

SpeakerPODcast EP.86 – Uta Macross & Yaya Han Interview

2017 is shaping up to be the summer of MACROSS as Adrian visits the Macross Beach House and reports back with some early impressions.
Tired of waiting for the release of UTA MACROSS? We sit down to talk about the recent Beta (and looking’ at balls).
Finally, we are joined by a very special guest as we sit down with cosplayer extraordinaire  Yaya Han to discuss her experiences with Macross cosplay and how the industry has continued to evolve (follow her on twitter here.).
Oh, and did you hear the news? Kakizaki is BACK!
