  1. Hi-Metal R

    I hope Bandai makes some adjustments so that the head can be completely stowed away in fighter mode. I know it sounds strange, but that was probably my favorite feature on the VT-1, since it made for a sleeker fighter mode.
  2. Bandai DX VF-31

    Thanks for the link! Managed to get my order in before they raised the price. But even then, I can see the VF-31A's eventual markup quickly exceeding the current one.
  3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who thought that Fantastic Beasts was better than any of the Harry Potter movies. I've got high hopes for the sequel, but I'm really not looking forward to seeing Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald. He's a decent actor, but I'm burned out from seeing him in yet another movie. If the movie needed publicity or funding, I could understand why they'd go with him. But the last thing a movie in the HP universe needs is help with publicity. And with J.K. Rowling herself writing the story, I highly doubt they had a hard time securing the funding. With a sea of exceptional British actors out there, I find it hard to believe that Depp was the best that they could find, especially at the price tag he probably comes with.
  4. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    The 1/72 looks promising, though my only two gripes are the glossy plastic and the overdone panel lines. I can forgive the glossy plastic because glossy plastic is cheaper than a matte finish, which saves the customer money. But the panel lines don't save anyone money and may even bump up the price tag a little. If they were expertly done, then it'd be a different story.
  5. Macross in the weirdest places

    That's hilarious, thanks for posting that! I'm pretty sure that "YF-19" is fan made, and not from any official Macross animation, because its canards are facing the wrong way.
  6. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Oh I'm completely aware of the pricing factors that come into play with niche toys (looks at pile of Yamato VF's). But as someone who doesn't collect action figures, the pricing doesn't tempt me into starting another collection either. Still, I wish KC all the best!
  7. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Ouch! As nice as KC's Minmei and Rick figures are, they're not worth $50 to me.
  8. Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter

    First, and foremost, is the client's financial status. If they're living below or near the line of poverty, an attorney will take that into consideration. Since the backers here had enough disposable cash to spend on a Kickstarter, they're unlikely to convince anyone that they need a handout. The next thing to consider is the nature of the grievance itself. Is the victim's physical safety or freedom at stake? Fanboys losing some disposable cash is a far cry from someone who's lost their entire life's savings. Third is the likelihood of success. No practice wants to spend their own money on a case unless there's a reasonable chance they'll win; resources spent on a questionable case are resources that could be spent on a legitimate, paying case. The long list of outrageous Kickstarter failures balanced against one or two legal victories isn't encouraging. As for publicity, believe it or not, I've yet to meet an attorney who does pro bono work for that reason. But if that was someone's motivation, they'd probably seek out children, minorities, and abused women. Middle class 30 to 40 year-old fanboys don't elicit much sympathy from anyone outside of their respective fandoms.
  9. Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter

    I've worked on several pro bono cases and I'd be shocked if they found anyone willing to take on this case pro bono. This case simply doesn't meet any of the criteria used to justify pro bono work. Their best chance at anything lies with success of the GoFundMe. I'm curious to see if they're willing to put their money where their mouth is.
  10. Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter

    Yeah, suing Palladium is waste of time. After losing money on a Kickstarter, who'd want to lose even more money on attorney fees and court costs? I only know of one successful Kickstarter lawsuit, but that was the result of a default judgment (ie: the defendant never responded to the lawsuit). Palladium's not going to roll over and play dead.
  11. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    I tip my hat to Kitz Concept, that sculpt looks great! While I don't collect action figures, this one does look tempting.
  12. Hi-Metal R

    I actually love that photo! This is the first time I've ever seen a VE-1 sporting GBP armor and can't believe no one's tried it before.

    Nice photo! It's interesting that Yamato chose blue helmets for their pilots. Is either version canon?
  15. Robotech by Titan Comics

    That's pretty much my thinking too. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one guilty of sacrilegious thoughts.
