    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    I guess this renders the Metal Material Model Aile Strike Gundam obsolete.

    Anyone know the scale of the Terminator Hunter Killer Aerial and Tank?

    Wow. I guess people are still buying this. Maybe the QC issues are isolated cases?

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    The 1/60 Nu Gundam reminds me of the 1/35 (!) GFF RX-78 that was shown several years back http://ngeekhiong.blogspot.com/2009/08/gff-tamashii-collectors-135-gundam-rx.html

    Robotech by Titan Comics

    Pretty sure Robotech also aired in the Philippines in English on Sunday mornings (usually missed it because of church) on GMA 7 or some other local network. It was later also aired on cable (Star World).

    Aren't the FMP Metal Builds in a different "scale" from the Gundam Metal Builds?

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    What's the difference with the previous release? is it just the markings?

    Are the markings on the new Regults decals?

    No Love for Southern Cross?

    This is a series that could be interesting with a proper reimagining/reboot. Just toss out the whole Gloire/Liberte/Zor story and keep the awesome armor designs. Then revive the original "feudal japan in the future or post-apocalypse" setting. Could be fun!

    This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    Big West should really rethink the pricing of their license fees. Their legal stand off/stalemate/status quo with HG means any potential licensee's market is severely limited from the get go, forcing them to charge a premium for smaller production runs. The high individual price of a licensee's product then makes cheaper KOs more attractive. If these KOs turn Arcadia and Bandai off from the Macross license, then Big West will be left with a lucrative license but no takers. Better to lower the license fees to more realistic levels (possibly shifting more revenue to a larger, but fair, percentage of the licensee's actual sales?), encourage more licensing, move more product and make KOs irrelevant. Licensees should also maximize the widest distribution available (e.g. give HLJ, et al. more access to stock) rather than force artificial scarcity and demand (e.g. making products only available through web stores that can solely be accessed by Japan residents etc.).

    Didn't know the atlas was based on the scopedog.
  12. So are there any "final" numbers for this film? Loss/break even? I guess its too much to hope that they did well enough to justify a sequel.

    Which Godzilla is that? I'm guessing the SH Monsterarts 1989 Kou Kyou Kyoku?
