Just noticed that more IDOLM@STER skins will also be included in this pack as well:

Hagiwara Yukiho F-117 ; 600 Yen ; 400 MSP
Takatsuki Yayoi Mirage 2000-5 ; 600 Yen ; 400 MSP
Kikuchi Makoto Typhoon ; 600 Yen ; 400 MSP

IDOLM@STER Colour pack 2 ; 1350 Yen / 800 MSP

On the other hand, it appears that the F-14D Valkyrie skins are Japan only.

Too bad we won't be getting the Macross skins thanks to Harmony Gold.

People are still blindly blaming Harmony Gold for everything Macross related?

That's pretty funny.

Except there's been numerous discussions on the fact that Harmony Gold has the distribution rights to everything related to Macross outside of Japan, they just can't make anything new. This was determined in a lawsuit involving Big West and Studio Nue a few years ago.

Seriously, feel free to go to Macross World Forums and look at their threads on the matter.

Right, and that includes designs that were later used in Battletech and Mechwarrior. When something happens to either of those franchises, fans are quick to pin the blame on Harmony Gold no matter what the circumstances are. No Mechwarrior news? Obviously cancelled due to Harmony Gold. No Macross skin DLC for Ace Combat? Those mustache twirling fiends at Harmony Gold are at it again.

tl;dr: Blaming Harmony Gold for something we have so little information on is ignorant.

It's hilarious how ignorant you are when it comes to this subject.

Since HG trademarked Macross in multiple countries, they have the rights to it in said countries. Because of that, NOTHING related to Macross can be released in the US, Canada, the UK, or Germany without their permission. The exception to this Macross II and Macross Plus, which were determined to be outside of HG's control.

The "unseen" Battletech mechs based on the Battroids that appeared in Mechwarrior were not licensed from Big West/Studio Nue, they were allowed by Harmony Gold.
