  1. I suspect this money isn't coming from Chronicle Collectibles. Partial.ly was acting as a middle man via collecting these payments. I suspect they have some insurance that covers situations like this. So this is likely them distributing an insurance payout. If people didn't get their money back people would likely be trying to sue them because suing Chronicle Collectibles wouldn't have likely been very fruitful. At least that is what I think is happening here. Carl
  2. I contacted my CC company and was informed I needed to contest each transaction separately. From my login account I could only see 5 statements so could only see a fraction of the transactions I needed to context. In my case there were a total of 14 transactions so I needed to follow a procedure of requesting they upload the older statements first. I did that Tuesday and they have just now shown up. However, even better news, just 20 minutes ago I got 14 emails from Partial.ly just like this one: So it looks like I'm getting 100% of my money back without even contesting via my cred
  3. Looks like I was wrong... Chronicle Collectibles may very well be in the business of screwing over their customers. http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=171649&page=47
  4. I did. But I'm not in panic mode yet. Chronicle Collectibles I don't believe is in the business of screwing over their customers. I'm rather sure this will get sorted out. It is just right now I have no idea what is going on. I'm guessing the entire project was cancelled but if so I'd expect some sort of announcement.
  5. Did anyone here order the Chronicle Collectibles Enterprise-D? I did back when they reduced the price to $1701. https://chroniclecollectibles.com/products/enterprise-d I've been making monthly payments to a Partial.ly Payment Plan since. The 13th of 16 payments was just pulled successfully back on 9/11/2020. And yesterday I got an email from noreply@partial.ly that simply stated: I immediately called Chronicle Collectibles and left a voice mail. I also emailed them. So far no reply. Today I emailed Partial.ly. No idea what is going on at the moment. Did they cancel the
  6. Based on what you say above about Star Trek: New Voyages and Star Trek Continues, it must have been something to do with the fundraising specifically. Walter Koenig, George Takei, Grace Lee Whintey, Denise Crosby, John de Lancie, Michael Dorn, Jason Isaacs, and Marina Sirtis are all professional actors and I fail to see how this doesn't really blur the distinction between fan-film and professional production, especially so when you have the same actor playing the same part. I don't know how Star Trek: New Voyages or Star Trek Continues is funded, I haven't looked into it. Maybe these actors
  7. I watched this yesterday and missed the SDF-1 so I was just about to ask if this was a joke. But I thought I better give it a second view before potentially making myself look too stupid and I spotted it. I love the way he sneaks it in. Carl
  8. Is it safe to assume we crossed the 30 kit threshold back on the 26th? Just curious if there was an official announcement that this project was a "go". Carl
  9. Is that an FDM print?
  10. I'm in for one. For the in-scale fighter are we talking about the Legioss/Tread combo? Three of those I guess could also be considered 6 aircraft so I wasn't sure. Thanks, Carl
  11. Is this the image you are looking at? If so the head-fin appears to be completely blocked by the front landing gear, so I'm not sure how you can tell if the fin is dragging or not. If there is another image you are referring to, could you post it or a link? Thanks, Carl
  12. Ok.... just got an email from Shawn. Looks like these were the same project. This post should tell you who my source was and fills in the gap between 2007 and 2009. Carl P.S. Does this mean I should take those PDF files down? Not really intending to open an old wound.
  13. The source I got these PDF files from is NOT Roger Harkavy. Going back and checking my email, my first contact with Roger was in May 2009. The files I just posted were files I obtained in 2007, which is well before I was aware of what Roger was working on. I suppose that it is possible that the "friend" referred to by my source was Roger (I honestly don't know) but I have a collection of line art that I've received directly from Roger in 2009 and 2010 that I believe has very little overlap with these 3 pdf files. I went through that first looking for the image Akim posted and I didn't see
  14. WOW!!!! I don't remember seeing this before. Great find Akim!!! What!!! That is from me!? I guess after years of collecting Mospeada stuff I was bound to forget something. Let me do some digging and see if I can find where this came from. That's it!!! I knew I had read someplace that went into more detail. As for "why Imai wanted it" I think I got that from here: http://www.starshipmodeler.com/mecha/ls_mos.htm This appears to be speculation so shouldn't be stated as fact. And good news... digging through my Mospeada files I found the image Akim posted.
  15. I believe the missile pod between the arms is removable. Can any one confirm? Are there any pictures of it in fighter mode with this removed? My understanding of the history of this addition is that Imai added it to their initial Legioss model to cover an unsightly hole between the arms in their model. I remember reading the details someplace long ago but cannot seem to find the exact link now. Its mentioned in passing here: http://www.starshipmodeler.com/mecha/ls_mos.htm and here: http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=10263 But I recall a link that went into more detail. I
  16. I design twisty puzzles, puzzle rings, and a some packing puzzles. I've also written for Game & Puzzle Design. Here is my lastest twisty puzzle. Its the Double Circle Real 6×6×6, which is effectively a 2×2×2, inside of a 4×4×4, all inside of a 6×6×6 with all 216 cubies solvable. I got my own K40 laser cutter up and running to cut out the acrylic tiles for me. WOW5 and WASP are two of my puzzle ring designs. Hex-Pave is one of my packing puzzles. Carl
  17. Nice GIF!! That makes me wonder if anyone has tried to make a GIF of the full transformation from bike to armor mode. If so I'd love to see it. Carl
  18. Thanks!!! Carl
  19. Has anyone been able to download the LDD instructions? When I click that link I just get the message "Error (404) We can't find the page you're looking for." Not sure if its a problem at my end or the other end. Carl
  20. I recognize the drop ship and the APC in the above picture. What is the mech? I don't recall seeing that in Aliens. Carl
  21. I'm pretty sure this Legioss was designed with a future Tread planned. Note the stand they are using, it makes use of the Tread's connecting boom. So they already have that part molded. While I agree that its eventual release may depend on how well the Legioss sells, I tend to think that if they make one Tread that they will make all three. At that point the expensive molds have already been made, it is trivial just to pour a different colored plastic into them. Carl
  22. Agreed... it looks like they loaded their 3D model upside down before applying the super-deformed transformation.
  23. Hey... you guys making fun of my ride armor? Carl
  24. Like!? I love it. I don't suppose you have any plans to make instructions. I'd buy a set if they were available. Great job!!! Carl
