    It's not "got ethnics in..." -- what a sophomoric straw-man and non sequitur -- that may get her the boot; it's her gross negligence, incompetence, and mismanagement that might do her in. It takes a lot of compounded stupid decisions and cultivation of bad blood to fail so spectacularly with a franchise that should've been an absolute no-brainer cash cow for Disney/Lucasfilm: Give the core audience what they want and you get Marvel CU success, dictate to the core audience what they should want and belittle and vilify them if they don't, and you get the current state of Star Wars; it's that simple... I guess KK must've skipped class on the day they discussed the concept of "the customer is always right" in Business 101. Edit: The unfortunate part, vis à vis Solo, is that it is suffering from the backlash derived not from the dumpster fire that was TLJ, but from KK's et al's response to the criticism from fans... their massive F-U to the fans on all fronts guaranteed that Solo would be pretty much DOA; and from all reviews I've seen thus far, Solo isn't a bad movie... mediocre to passable, maybe, but a serviceable and even enjoyable, if flawed, addition to the franchise.

    I don't think anyone is taking anything lying down. There is no need to contact NY when we already know what the answer is. I'm not sure who these "most other retailers" that @Kinzoku VF is talking about are. Mykombini? You mean how they were so honorable to cancel our orders and then put the item back up for more? There is no need to act like you are rising up against some great evil in the world over a toy. There are a lot of assumptions being made about NY that have no basis whatsoever given their track record of always delivering what they charged for. Worst case scenario is you just let your CC company know and get your money back or you get a voucher for a shop that I know most of you will still order from no matter what is said. No lives are being lost or saved here. it's a toy that they are still delivering, even though it may be happening slow as hell. So, let's see some more pics or talk about how crappy that Draken clip move by Bandai is or something.

    I see that your location is Brazil, so maybe you're not familiar with Comcast. Here in the States the big telecoms, in collusion with the federal and state governments, have largely divided the country into territories where they operate with little to no competition. As a result the telecoms have been able to charge whatever they want for poor products and poor customer service while pulling in obscene profits. Comcast is one of the biggest (largest cable TV provider, largest internet service provider, and third-largest telephone service provider in the States). They're already dipping their fingers into other pies, as they own Universal Pictures Studios and a few television networks including NBC, USA, and E!. They've already struck an MVNO deal with Verizon (the #1 cell service provider), and they're reportedly in some kind of talks with Sprint, too. Heck, they even have a controlling share of the Philidelphia Flyers, an NHL hockey team. If all that sounds bad, it is. Comcast has twice been named the worst company in the US by Consumerist, twice listed as having the worst customer satisfaction by the American Customer Satisfaction Index, and at least once given an F by the Corporate Library for their corporate governance. They spend insane amounts on lobbying and have given jobs to the relatives of various government officials to try to get preferential treatment. They've been caught illegally deceiving customers about data caps and other things to get more money out of customers, and have been fined by the Federal Communications Commission for it (although the fine, a mere $2.3 million, is really just a slap on the wrist). And as terrible as they are, like I said they've worked out deals so they basically have no competition in their territories. Where I live if you want internet you can get dial up, you can get pretty slow DSL, you can pay obscene rates for cellular data (usually with a data cap), or you can get Comcast cable. There's no other cable and no FIOS options. For years my internet speed was around 15Mbps; it only went up because the government made a rule that you had to be at least 25Mbps to be considered broadband. Television? Again, Comcast is the only cable provider, and there's no FIOS here. The only alternatives are two satellite TV providers. So, even though their reputation isn't exaggerated and they're truly a horrible company, I'm stuck being their customer because there just isn't anyone else to go to. So please, believe me when I tell you that no matter how much you don't like Disney one thing guaranteed to be worse than Disney getting Fox is Comcast getting Fox.

    Only took 35 years, but I finally have a TV Roy that I'm satisfied with. TV and movie versions! (Movie version is still incomplete.)

    Let’s take it down a notch guys. Jerks are jerks but let’s not get political or paint broad stripes over people. We’re here about the toys and nothing else. Only thing I want to come back in here is when Bandai releases the Tomahawk.

    Hello there people ! So, here come some news about the mod's current progression. First, I'm glad to announce that Cooper finally found a way to make transparent textures, as it was a major blocking issue to achieve the Megaroad. It will allow us to enjoy the full city under its dome ...and, now you know the guy, he thought he wasn't going to stop at this point and decided to make the entire main deck for the DYRL version of the SDF-1 ! Let me show you how it looks in its early stage View from distance Closer look You'll certainly recognize the area where Minmay is supposed to sing during the battle vs Gorg Bodolzaa, some good stuff might come out of all this, just saying ^^ I don't have much more to give you guys but we will discuss on discord with Cooper in a couple of weeks, I'll get back around with more stuff to share, until then have fun ! EDIT : Just in case you've missed it on Steam, here's the baby This time I'm leaving, bye folks !

    I've been on a GM Binge lately. Been barely doing any Macross collecting due to all the P-Bandai. I still can't believe I got 5 White Dingo Sniper kits.....

    Good to hear that NY is shipping out 31As, although slowly and hopefully surely. "Till all have one!" I'll leave some eye candy.

    My DYRL Roy which I started in 2013 and only just now completed. Five years isn't too bad, right? And with that I think I need a break from decaling VF-1s for awhile. Hopefully my PF 0S arrives today and I can start tinkering with that.

    ^Not cool dude. I get that you're frustrated with MyKombini, but I don't think these types of comments are relevant or appropriate here. I didn't down vote you, but I think you should consider editing your post.

    If there ever is a HD remake of AC3, I'd be the first one to jump onto the latest generation gaming hardware. That game was so cool on so many levels, from the aircraft designs to the story lines to the characters to the music. And the best part was that you had to put together this giant puzzle by yourself in the stone age of the interweb.

    I'm working on an SDF-1 hangar diorama to display my HMR collection... trying to match the classic Macross background colors. Once I've settled on a color scheme, I can add the gantries, markings, accessories, and deck crew... Constructive criticism would be most appreciated.

    We've had one already. It was called Macross Plus, and it was f***ing awesome. Arguably better than Thunderbolt, since it came without a walking edgelord meme for a protagonist.

    The real star of Top Gun was the F-14 Tomcat, and apparently it's not in this new one. We have to make due with this Cruise guy.

    No. Its the disrespect to fan conserns of wanting a straight up star wars story without interjecting current social politics into them. I think a lot of us love ashoka. Leiah lando. mace just fine. along with many other different aliens and robots in the star wars universe

    ^This! It's not any of the pre-packaged exculpatory and deflecting excuses that shill critics and writers come up with to explain why Solo bombed. The fact of the matter is that TLJ left an indelibly bad taste in the palate of many, if not most, Star Wars fans; and it wasn't even because the movie was excruciatingly and purposefully bad and, in the opinion of many, an insult to established characters, lacking in its new ones, and an overall betrayal of fan expectations of what a Star Wars story should be, even of the preceding TFA (a matter of personal opinion, to be sure)... It was Disney's/Lucasfilms' response to fan's criticism of what was done. The dismissive, flippant, denigrating, tone-deaf way that the people in charge of the franchise treated their customers, the fans, is what caused Solo to fail, and it's what may cause Ep. IX to bomb too. Most people who are told that their dislike for a product is indicative that there is something wrong with them and that they are too recalcitrant and stupid to understand the "brilliance" of the creative vision of the direction the company is taking the property... it's theirs to ruin, and ruin it they will if they persist in their hubris and ignoring one of the pillars of a successful business: The customer is always right, listen to them and treat them with respect; and above all, give them what they want.

    Amazing collection @Kicker773, I can’t even imagine how Difficult it should have been to reunite as many impressive items as you did. That inspired me and I went to the detolf to make a scorpion pose to the Vajras chasing Ozma and Brera passive observing as usual...

    Good news!! People who missed-out on the first batch will be able to get these at proper retail again. And they'll be able to spend the money they save on my update set (coming soon, working on it, no release date as yet.)
