Video Of A Real-Life Robotech Mecha Transforming

February 15, 2019

This is a shaky video of a Macross (english adaptation Robotech) VF-1S mecha transforming at a previous Beijing Comic Convention. The all-metal 1/9 scale model was created by artist Sun Shiqian and transforms back and forth from its two forms all on its own. I know, I thought it was the Decepticon's Starscream at first too. It's not though, it's a Robotech VF-1S mecha. I'll admit, I'm not that familiar with the Robotech franchise. With the local Dairy Queen franchises? All the owners know me by name. And that name, of course, is -- "Sir Eatalot?" IT'S THE BLIZZARD KING, JERK.

Keep going for a couple shots of the mecha and the video of its transformation, which is really just the gif in higher quality.



Thanks to my good pal/worst enemy Terry, who I will undoubtedly have to mech battle to the death one day. The future just isn't big enough for the two of us.

    F that, it's a Transformer. I had it as a kid. JetFire was his name.

    Robotech was my favorite cartoon in grade 7, then years later I heard the name Gundam for the same type of machines and I was like "How the heck did they go from a cool name like Robotech to Gundam?" My life was never the same after that.

    I generally gain nearly $6,000-$8,000 monthly on the internet. It is really adequate to easily replace my old jobs salary, especially considering I just work about 20 hr per week at home.I lost my job after working for the same organization for years, I needed trusted earnings, I was not researching for the "get rich quick" home packages you see all over the internet. Those are all pyramid schemes or stuff where you have to sell to your friends and family members. I basically required a legitimate way to earn a living for me and my family. The best benefit of working on line is that I am always home with the little kids, I save a good amount of money. Honestly,it is actually easier than you would think, all you need to do is submit a very simple form to get front line access to the Home Profit System . You don't need to be a computer whiz, but you should know how to use the internet. If you can fill forms and surf web-sites, you can do it easily, You don't even have to sell anything at all and no-one needs to purchase anything. It's as simple as being on Facebook.Here's how you can begin=> CONTACT US TODAY

    It looks more like Shaggy from Scooby Doo getting up off the couch.

    It's definitely the English version of a Macross Valkyrie VF-1S, not a Robotech Veritech VF-1S. Macross labels stuff UN Spacy, Robotech labels stuff RDF\REF. There is no UN Spacy in Robotech.

    There's the original Macross series in Japanese, the Macross series English dub, & all subsequent Macross serials with their Japanese & English versions; then there's the adaptation of the original Japanese Macross series, Southern Cross series, Masters Saga series, & Sentinels, all mashed together to create Robotech, which was originally made in English.

    Macross Plus is not Robotech. Macross itself is not Robotech, & Robotech is not Macross, yet! (The licenses for the Robotech series & games are not being renewed & may revert from Harmony Gold & Palladium Games, to Studio Nue which registered the original license for Macross properties.)

    Robotech is effectively dead, unless Studio Nue decides to retcon it into their Macross timelines once the competing licenses expire.

    That's a very impressive model & since nobody has a license for any Robotech products lasting beyond the next few years, I'm not surprised that the model isn't bearing any Robotech labeling. Anything coming out commercially right now is definitely going to be Macross, & probably forever after until the license restrictions for Macross itself expire.

    I want to see a fully transforming Valkyrie mecha that really flies, next. Then it's only a matter of time & vast misuse of resources before we can see a live-action Macross movie made using only practical effects & 1:1 scale sets. Internet, bring me that horizon!
