  1. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I get your points. However what I mean is why not give the Earth humans a break and give Zentradi a chance to be the main protagonists. I'm thinking something like a Republic Commando/Roughnecks Chronicles/Clone Wars/Imperial Military personnel type story where we follow a Zentraedi battlegroup in its campaigns. If we absolutely must have humans then it could a friendly Zentradi faction with an attached Valkyrie squadron (a reverse Pixie squadron if you will) scouting ahead for a human exploration fleet or something. The Zentraedi (in fact most aliens depicted in fiction) are close to human enough that we can identify with them. In fact its even easier to identify with them due to the general lack of unwanted/controversial social/pc issue baggage that makes it so hard to like humans. Now I know this is a very unlikely premise, but it certainly would be a change of pace. (As to Star Wars, well the Galactic Empire/Clone armies never got old for me and never will. What did get old was Rebels-must-always-win schlep where X-wings blow up Star Destroyers and virtually all the Imperial officers other than Thrawn are incompetent.)

    But (essentially) the same protagonist over and over doesn't?

    Looks like you need a landing craft to deploy all those regults. AB-SO-LUTELY.

    The truly awesome thing in Macross for me has never been the transforming fighters. Its the alien-invasion-cycle-type concept of a warmachine of innumerable genetically engineered giant soldiers with really interesting ship and mecha designs. So what I'm trying to say is that Macross needs somehow to return to that level of sci-fi awesomeness, and not descend further into the meh depths of just-another-nondescript-anime that Delta took us too. Doing that in the Walkure/Windermere tarnished Brisingr Globular Cluster (terrible name) is going to need something unique/creative.

    Part of the thing that concerned me when Delta was coming was that it was mainly going to be confined to a single planet. I prefer a large cosmic canvass. I guess it could work if there are some interesting alien races and locales there.

    Here's hoping we still get that SDFM Breetai that was teased.

    "...comic book readers and also civilians." Comic book readers are now a branch of the military?

    Pew pew pew and swooshing is what it's ultimately all about.

    Super Damn! The DYRL versions of Breetai and Exedore/Exedol suck compared to the SDFM versions.

    Wearing the heavy armour backpack over the (mess they made of) dress uniform. It doesn't even look good, let alone make any sense. Their design aesthetics are clearly non-existent.

    Sprite Squadron.

    Better yet ditch them completely and have the band just be a group of Meltrandi pilots.

    Made by Factoria3D in Spain.

    And don't forget the Reconpod. They need to finish the Regults as well.

    Tempted to get Eva'a now for some reason. My VF2SS finally completed its sentence at the post office hub. Now here's a combat scene I'd want to see in animation.
