    Eyes on you Crunchyroll/Sony, we haven’t gotten any real updates on Macross 7, Frontier, or Delta since they acquired RightStuf/Nozomi

    Btw, can I use a straight razor to cut the pieces loose or do I need to use that tool?

    Once again. It's about damn time. Hopefully they use the recent remastered Blu-ray footage.

    In addition to Macross Plus, Anime LTD will be doing Zero soon too.

    For the HG kits? You can use a razor...a nipping tool just makes it a little quicker. You will still need to use a razor/blade/file/sandpaper/etc. to remove the little bit of sprue mark that will be left on the part after you remove it from the tree (unless you don't mind sprue marks, lol).

    Got my gear ready, just need to get myself together a lil bit more, lol. Festival yesterday and afterparty till 6 in the morning got me a lil bit tired. (maybe I'm getting too old for this shit, lol)

    Let's see how it turns out. Got the sanding paper, that nipping tool, my straight razor that I normally shave with (it's got removable blades so not gonna shave with the same blade obviously). Guessing I might need a file as well, the rougher ones that are on nailclippers or the smoother ones used to file nails (not on nail clippers), taking em both and I'll see how it turns out.

    Let's see if the build itself is fun to do as well.

    So, how does one actually go about preording Macross Plus and Zero in the US? The only website I pull up for Anime Limited is their UK webstore. Will this be a wide release where it'll be on Amazon, etc?

    Also not sure about double dipping since I have the Japanese blu-ray release. I'm temptied though. If it had a 4K disc it would be a no brainer.

    If you look at their website, they specifically call out including North America for the release. You can add your email and will be updated with the details when they send it out. I don’t believe Plus has had any releases on Blu-ray with English dubs/subs. And the Zero Japanese recent release had the English subs. I have the Zero release. But this one says “Collectors Edition” so who knows what it will include. Also, I wonder if either of these will have English dubs in addition to the subs. I don’t tend to watch with the dubs but wouldn’t be bad to have.

    I'm thinking about retrying macross frontier. There's the 2 or 3 movies and the series. The movie is basically the series but halfway it changes or something? I only tried the series and gave up after 8 or so episodes, but I wanna give it another shot. I know it can't be as bad as 7 or delta.

    Shout! Factory carries the AtA/Anime Limited collector’s box sets here in the US. At least, that’s how it’s worked previously.

    You might also be able to pick them up from other shops like RACS and the Crunchyroll store too. AtA/Anime Limited’s UK webstore should sell to US customers, which is great for region free titles or if you have a region free setup, but I do think some titles are blocked now.
