  1. Can we finally see Harmony Gold's actions and real attitude behind the scenes? Harmony Gold is doing the same as in this movie: Robotech is a totally dead franchise, that even the fans are not interested in seeing, beyond the 4 crazy monkeys everytime, that I doubt very much that they buy the official products. But HG tries to show by all means that the franchise is alive, in order to continue looking for investors. As is the case with Kids Logic Company, and its 1/6 VF-1S Roy Fokker Cockpit model. Do you think HG paid any money for this? No, it was Kids Logic, who surely brought the idea to the people of HG, they pretended to think about the business, and then told them that they accept that they use the name Robotech, if they pay their juicy commission beforehand. Kids Logic, surely paid everything, and HG took the royalties just for owning the title. And that is the only reason why they make so many announcements of the eternal movie, and they fought for the rights of the original series. HG only seeks to maintain the appearance that they are the owners of a promising franchise, when this one is no longer in anyone's interest.
  2. That's I was asking but nobody answer it. In fact, now I doubt that anyone else has read it and tried to understand (without offending anyone). My knowledge of laws, as well as legal language, is low. But, the little I could understand and get clean, is that: if Big West succeeded (if it didn't already have it), Harmony Gold could lose a big business in Europe. * I don't know what legal move the Harmony Gold legal representative made, but as read in the PDF, her performance was disastrous, the judge having to remind her that the laws were different there. He even offered evidence that played against him, and in favor of the property of Big West.
  3. As I read it, I understand that it is not a Big West response. In fact, I don't know where they got that conclusion. What I see there, is a summary of the dispute, where Judge Elisa Tricerri, rejected the complaint / lawsuit of Harmony Gold USA for Big West Advertising to register the title and logo of MACROSS, to his property. And this, in my opinion, implies that within the countries of the European Union, Harmony Gold should, from now on, pay for royalties from the use of the word Macross, to Big West.
  4. Wait, wait... just to summarize the PDF document: Harmony Gold can no longer sell the title of Robotech: The Macross Saga, across Europe, for having the Macross name in the title?? Ouch! That is what I was able to get clean from reading the entire document... twice. Not only the shame that Harmony Gold had, because the regulator had to remind them that things do not work as they believe. The phrase: Applicant seems to forget that... is read in too many parts of the document. (And the Applicant was Harmony Gold USA). I know that they can continue doing it, if they pay royalties to Big West from now on, but in many cases, as I understand it, the cost of those royalties is established not by a regulatory body, but by the same company that owns them, in This case, Big West. In addition, according to the document, Harmony Gold was in part opposed, because its brands are very similar and did not want any fan, willing to buy merchandise from Robotech (yeah, sure...), end up buying one from Macross. And in which case, the regulator understood this fact but gave the reason and weight to Big West ... that is, if Judge Elisa Tericerri had greater judicial power, she would have taken Harmony Gold's rights to promote his merchandise ... Or am I wrong? Someone else read the entire document and started thinking about everything that implies?
  5. I love all the response to that tweet. Nobody, NOBODY likes Robotech anymore...
  6. Now I can understand why Harmony Gold is alive and kicking... Being a Patent Troll, is the most rentable business in US!!!
  7. Original footage from Robotech Project? That look like footage from the horrible Fant4stic movie. Also, the plot looks more like The Day the Earth Stood Still remake. I always say it: Some fan films, could be good producto, good material with the right choice. But others, like this, not.
  8. Well... the Robotech fans were not left behind in plagiarizing Macross either. (This is my favorite)
  9. frakk that... Let me check my files... Yes, here is it: You don't need to tell, me, I'm a little "chubby". I send to make this design, and was ona size too big for me. Here's the original design: Also, I do a officer model for my girlfriend, a Misa style, but later she become my ex-girlfriend so... And that T shirt cost me: $600 Argentine pesos. That's mean, $14,15 US dollars.
  10. A Witch wizard did it... (In the spanish version of The Simpsons, they say "A witch did it").
  11. Well... some fans made this one... Still, haven't any f* sense. Sh*t, now that I'm looking for it, the stupid Youtube algorithm is going to be recommending Robotech videos.
  12. Hi, guys... I found this picture on my big Macross stuff, on my diskdrive. Many of the images and files that I have there, I have them with their place of origin attached, as for example, some of the excellent fanarts that has been published here. But in this case, with this image that I downloaded about a year ago or more, I have no idea. Apparently belongs to some artbooks that I have no knowledge, since they were two pages together. The image, the download of a French Macross page, which unfortunately ceased to exist. Does anyone know it? Have you seen it? PS: Already try to look it on google.
  13. Hi! I was looking for the military ranks. Do you guys/girls, have any idea about it? Can you list it? My only reference is this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial_Japanese_Army_Air_Service I see in some subs, that Roy was mentioned as Major. Hikaru was mentioned as Sergeant, and later Lieutenant. Also... do you have any squadron formation? Like this? On where we can see clearly the Hikaru, Max Kakizaki and Roy's position? Oh, and sorry if my english suck, hehe... I'm little rusty to write in english.
  14. Thank you, Thank you Thank you!!! Thank you very much Gubaba.
