  1. Wow! Thanks for all of the suggestions, no3ljm and sketchley! Will definitely check them out and report back!
  2. I suggest not forcing the issue too much. Your son is going to like what he's going to like. I, too, tried to get my 3-year old started with Transformers Rescue Robots, but that did not last long. What's important is that when he does show interest, you're all set with your Revoltechs.
  3. Anybody have tips for toy shopping in Sapporo, Japan? Going there (and only there!) next month.
  4. I guess this renders the Metal Material Model Aile Strike Gundam obsolete.
  5. Anyone know the scale of the Terminator Hunter Killer Aerial and Tank?
  6. Wow. I guess people are still buying this. Maybe the QC issues are isolated cases?
  7. 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
  8. 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).
  9. Aren't the FMP Metal Builds in a different "scale" from the Gundam Metal Builds?
  10. What's the difference with the previous release? is it just the markings?

    Are the markings on the new Regults decals?
  12. 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!
  13. 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, perc
  14. Didn't know the atlas was based on the scopedog.
  15. 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?
  17. Can this be sold outside Japan, or does HG have a lock on Mospeada merch too?
  18. OK, so HK was cancelled. Any tips for toy shopping in Seoul? Will be there end of the month.
  19. Just saw this over the weekend. It drags at the start, but improves in the later half. Overall, I enjoyed it, but non-manga/anime fans may not enjoy it as much. Given the complexity of the original manga (and even the anime film), I honestly don't know how they could have done it better. I would rank it a bit higher than Zack Snyder's Watchmen. Bottom line: go into it with low expectations and you may come away entertained.
  20. Interesting. Hope it shows up on shapeways. Would certainly like try and salvage my proto garland.
  21. How do the Robot Damashii labors scale with the Revoltechs? Got a lot of the latter.
  22. Now that Arcadia are trickling out some of these "Exclusive" Premium Finish valks to HLJ, they ought to go ahead and: 1. Cancel the regular Strike VF-1S Hikaru 2. Shift all production to the Premium Finish version 3. Drop the price on the Premium Finish version just enough to make it noticeable, but not to the level of the regular version. 4. Make the Premium Finish version available to all the retailers that can normally carry macross merch They won't be able to keep this in stock. And we'll actually be "thanking" them despite what in the end would be an across
