Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos is an entertaining second string mecha action series that is also one of the most off kilter toy tie-in cartoons ever produced. ArshadAA and I examine this strange entry in the 80's mecha pantheon. Come for the Gobots and stay for the cute robot girls.

For all our CollectionDX readers going to Anime Boston 2013, I will be hosting a panel on my favorite subject: Macross! This panel is called Flight of the Valkyries: A Guide to the Mecha of Macross and will be held in Panel 206 on Friday May 24th at 4:00 PM. In this panel I will be going over the real life history of the various Valkyries using information graciously provided by Renato from the Macross Speaker Podcast as well as relating these fictional aircraft back to the real world airplanes they are based on. The panel is set to last for an hour and I hope it will be very informative for those who attend!

The fan favorite Valkyrie known as the VF-4 Lightning III had a rough journey to being a machine with scant seconds worth of screen time to a fully realized transforming fighter.

It began humbly enough with the VF-X-4 prototype seen briefly as a scale model in the last episode of Super Dimension Fortress Macross. This served only as a tease for what was to come. The VF-X-4 possesses a similar layout and overall design as the final VF-4 but still differs in some of the finer details.
