I think the guy with the prime is Daisuke, Toynami's sculptor (responsible for the beta and 1/100's among others).

Yes! I believe he was the one who brought the Tread test shot, amazing workmanship on both items. the Optimus Prime was a work of art!

Glad to read you were spinning my favorite Macross-related song.

MacrossCon Custom show

One of Macrossworld Con's traditions is the custom show and contest and the Eva custom was a interesting entry! They remind me of those Bandai solid plastic Valkyrie and Gundam Girls model kits that came out in the 1980's when I was a kid! I should buildup my Gundam MarkII Girl for CDX one of these days!

I wasn't aware there were any Gundam Girl kits or anything similar. I always thought they were just a fan art kind of thing.

Gundam and Valkyrie Girls

Yes, Bandai made three of them, a VF-1S Valkyrie Girl, a Zeta Gundam Girl and a Gundam MarkII Girl. They came in thin full color boxes and were about $15.00 each. They were made with solid plastic. I had the valkyrie girl which I regret selling and I still own the Mark II one. They only made those three, which was too bad as they were quite cool. The story on the box was that they were young girls that were raised to fight sport battle competitions or something along those lines. I'll do a build up of my Mark II one of these days for CDX.

An entire Hall just for Bandai Valks!

Hey, somebody had to say it.

I went to the (Creation?) ROBOTECH con years ago and still dream I'm in the dealers room. So, there isn't any vending at this event?

The Macross vinyl must sound pretty sweet in a big room. This looks like a great time. I need to check it out. I also need to go to G-Fest.

Vendors

That was the only downer of the event but it wasn't by choice, after they booked the room it turned later that UCLA has a policy on the entire campus that states that outside private vendors can't sell items on campus. It was too late to to change locations as the promotions had already been sent out. They already stated that next year they will not have that issue again.

The records sounded great and they were happy that I brought them as it set the mood for the day.

Thanks!
