  1. Question is this episode of the podcast spoiler-iffic? I know, that sounds like a stoopid question, especially since we've all seen the series, but if there are big changes from the show, that might lead to big things, will they be spoiled in the cast?
  2. Macross in the weirdest places

    So it has begun... Anyone have a really, really deep bomb shelter where I could chill for the next year or so?
  3. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Nice! Masters of the Universe along side the Street Fighter (Storm collectibles) figures. Oh yeah, the HM-R is nice too...
  4. Hi-Metal R

    Now when are the damn Grunts, N-Ger's, and Q-Rau's coming?!?!?!?!
  5. Star Trek: Discovery

    How silly! What next people, magical gut bacteria that allows you to fold through space! Ha.
  6. Hi-Metal R

    Whoever put those dioramas together deserves a prize. So much awesome there.
  7. Live action Robotech movie

    And the laughs continue! It's all about execution Sony!
  8. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    @anubis20 Nice street fighter figs. I hope you plan on opening them up. I'm considering some myself as I'm knee deep in Street Fighter V at the moment. Do you have the Chun-Li and Ryu by chance?
  9. Legos, anyone?

    I've actually paid for a SPARKART macross moc. 2 years back at MWCon I saw his Regult and thought I just needed to have it. Nice little piece.
  10. C'mon, at least give us a chance to properly pirate the show on Sunday night!
  11. Legos, anyone?

    Awesome MOC @M'Kyuun. I hit the pause button on my Bricklink purchases after finishing up some MOCs and haven't really been tempted by any official sets in a while, but I think I might have to get me a Voltron when they come out.
  12. Star Trek: Discovery

    Indeed! The internet delivers yet again!
  13. Star Trek: Discovery

    Regarding Bird of Prey designs, I recently put together a LEGO mini-MOC of one the be along the same scale as a refit Enterprise. I started to get concerned about whether they were in scale together and went looking for specs on how they compared and was surprised to see that basically they all have the same outline but can be of just about any size since the Great Houses do indeed build 'em to fit their particular moods (really whatever the writer needs for the episode or movie.) They go from small crews of 2 people to TNG Enterprise D size behemoths, albeit without the wing maneuverability of the smaller vessels. http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/articles/bop-size.htm

    I agree with this. One of the compelling aspects of other shows more recently, such as Walking Dead, is that they are willing to loose principal characters. Or in the case of Game of Thrones, entire clans. Trek, while constant putting our heroes in danger, rarely kills them off. It's a balancing act, to be sure, but if your heroes never loose battles, what is at risk? You fall into the Doctor Who trap where you know the dreaded Daleks will show up, and just as surely, that the Doctor will defeat them, again and again. I'm not saying you gotta kill of Indy, or blow up Vulcan, but there has to be real peril, else the Federation is really just leveling up season after season to essentially be the last great super power. Klingons, Romulans need to have real Pineapple power. That being said, I don't just want space battle after space battle from my Trek shows. That isn't what hooked me on Trek as a kid. Sure the season ending cliff-hanger better have plenty of explosions, but what would be the point of 5 year missions if the Enterprises just become prettier Galacticas.

    I never saw the Saber Riders or Bizmark, but having listened to both opening themes on YouTube just now I'm gonna have to disagree there: MIO / MIQ's voice just drips with soulful, pop awesomeness. Another good one by here is the Aura Battler Dunbine opening.
