  1. All evil is a lesser form of good. Objective evil, as most people conceive it, certainly exists. Or do you deny the existence of rapists, drug dealers, paedophiles, cannibals, human traffickers, etc? (Hmmm ...maybe their victims just have'nt tried to communicate and find common ground...) And even if objective evil didnt exist the "one man's meat is another man's poison "arguement is really just making my point. The Nazis regime, for example, was objectively evil by any reasonable standard. But yes indeed most of them were so indoctrinated that they firmly believed they were in the right even while they committed genocide. This is precisely the reason why armed force was the only way to stop them, they were not going to be swayed by reason. And taking it into space, why should a species which is far more powerful than another with which it has nothing in common, resort to communication at all rather than just sweep it aside? Or what of Predator Prey situations - how would a Tarantula and Hawk Wasp analogue ever find common ground? I do see your point about the similarity between Macross and ST in this one regard, but I dont agree that alone makes Macross closer to ST than SW.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Yes to this. Yes to Dana/Jeanne. (And yes to more Tirolian/Zor figures such as Zor Prime/Seifried Weiss, Musica and the Bioroid Terminators if they ever get made.)
  3. That reads like an extract from a UFP indoctrination session. The "avoidable" notion streches suspension of disbelief by disregarding the existence of malevolent intent, unbridled greed and zero sum game politics. (Diplomacy is also boring as hell for a tv show.) Using a different comparator I always saw SDF as being up there with Star Wars in terms of having an antagonist with a properly fleshed out military machine. Also in terms of the amount of combat and potential war toys Star Wars and Macross seem more comparable (ST was thin on both in the 80's.).

    Robotech by Titan Comics

    Right, its like they dont get that we actually love those classic Studio Nue designs. The art definitely compares very unfavourably to the art that Solar Flare Games is using. Instead its been reimangled. Rather than waste a single cent on this I'm rather going to pick-up the Sentinels volumes I missed the first time around.
  5. I'd rather support a show that blatantly says "we just want to sell you all the Macross toys ever, and yes this includes the cool Zentradi stuff."

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    What a target rich landing pad for our TIEs!

    They obviously cant be bothered to do anything that cool.

    Definitely. As long as its the SDFM version.

    I also picked up Invasion, for the Invid naturally. I dont recall a similar Masters miniseries though, pity.

    I actually liked Love and War. And Myria looked great on the chinese TPB cover. You certainly cant compare that to the yech-Blagh "art" thats been posted on this page thusfar. (I even caught a glimpse of the Zentraedi using a low tech angular console that looked like they had stolen it from Chernobyl. What a visual insult after Studio Nue's Zentradi console designs.)

    I refuse to assume that it is Breetai. Its more like a Zombie cosplaying as Breetai on a low budget.
  14. I find it disturbing that you even have such a thing. (Unless you mean her Zentradi traits or something.)
