Break it down, part four.
Recently Soren posted this Photo to the Flikr Mechaton group.
Part of the caption read, “The secretness advances! Now with 120% more blatant Macrossery.” For those who don’t know, Macross is a series of science fiction mecha anime, directed by Shōji Kawamori of Studio Nue in 1982. Macross is considered by many fans to have produced some of the best mecha designs of all time. It certainly is the source of several of my personal favorites. This next pic is the Zentraedi officers pod, can you see the resemblance?
Here is the breakdown shot Soren sent me.
“Wait a minute,” you say, ” not all the parts are there, and some that are have changed!” Why yes they have, but there is a reason for that. This frame breakdown is for this following photo.
“Hey, that’s not a Zentraedi officers pod,” you gasp “it’s a regular Zentraedi battle pod!”
Yes, and just like The Zentraedi battle pod, this frame is proving to be very versatile, and will surely prove able to fill many rolls.
I can just see my Zentraedi force marching across the table now.
P.S. just one more Macross tie-in. Look back at the Conscript in the first photo in the post, and then look at this pic of Zentraedi female power armor.
