  1. Add me to the growing family that is VF-1S owners! I was pleasantly surprised this afternoon by the arrival of mine ten days earlier than the expected date!
  2. Please tell me that you’re joking and aren’t really unaware of the original novel or 1953 film’s existence!
  3. Actually there was a model of the Star Fury made by Revell back in the 90s. I still have that kit sitting around unbuilt.
  4. Would I be considered crazy buying this used considering how much they’ve been market up or should I just wait until the Hikaru VF-1S movie version to come out? So far, the cheapest one that I’ve found was around ¥26000 in one of the used shops in Akiba.
  5. My favorite anime is easily Macross, favorite manga is Maison Ikkoku. I’m still quite a bit old school!
  6. Saw what I’m assuming was an F-2 flying overhead near Enoshima today. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t flying lower so I could get a better look at it.
  7. I have a couple of friends that have watched it and they all say that it’s absolutely terrible.
  8. That looks awesome!
  9. I’m not surprised at all and was actually almost expecting to learn that Mari was one of his victims. It’s been an industry “secret” for at least a decade that Mignogna is a predator. Each and every one of my friends that have staffed at conventions (some of them are even friends with Monica herself) and have dealt with him in the past have all said that Vic is garbage and that the only reason that cons have him as a guest is because he brings in attendees. So, yeah, I believe all that Mignogna has been accused of is true.
  10. Some nice mileages there! My ‘05 Sentra SE-R is just 500 miles or so shy of 252k miles! It doesn’t look pretty anymore, but it still runs strong.
  11. He also could very well get the death penalty considering the number of people that died as a result of the fire.
  12. Now that Crunchyroll has them up, I’m going to finally get around to watching Dancouga and Goshogun.
  13. I don’t know how the heck I missed that! I’ve been wanting a model of that since I first saw it almost 30 years ago!
  14. The partnership between CR and Funimation ended.
  15. I can’t believe that there wasn’t a single post in this in all of 2018! I could’ve sworn that some of those posts from 2017 were posted last year.
  16. While I’m not sure exactly when they replaced it, but Lakehurst has a new display plane at its entrance.
  17. If I remember correctly, the Andromeda and the rest of the EDF ships were largely automated in the original Yamato 2.
  18. I wonder what the chances of them rescuing the license for Maison Ikkoku. Sure, I can find Viz’s release fairly easily, but the prices of the sets past the first three are ridiculously expensive!
  19. It's been a while since I've watched Orguss, but I don't remember them ever mentioning the Emaan's lifespans. In the Wikipedia for Orguss it does mention that Emaan women are only fertile until age 18. Maybe that's what you're thinking of, Seto?
  20. The original did the same thing, though, so this isn't anything new. The WMG was only a big deal in the original Yamato. It stopped being so the moment that Arrivederci Yamato/Yamato 2 introduced the Andromeda and the rest of the Earth fleet. The only thing that changed was the number of ships.
  21. The 1/500 2199 version is an awesome kit. Funny thing for me is that I couldn't find the kit in any of the stores in Japan when I was there in September of 2016. I actually had to order mine from a place in the US once I got back from my tip!
