    Nice Dark Phoenix figure.

    Would be nice.

    I just hope they don't abandon the line and we end up with dashed hopes like the oysters in Lewis Carroll's The Walrus and the Carpenter. "It seems a shame,' the Walrus said, To play them such a trick, After we've brought them out so far, And made them trot so quick!"

    That release ratio clearly does not favour Zentraedi mecha fans.

    Yes really, done properly an articulated Bioroid could be a gem. http://hobbycom.jp/upimages/view/photo_sub_image/172801/fullsize The gun always reminded me of a yoy-yo crossed with the old retractable extension cord my dad used to have. Sad if gimmicks are required due to short attention spans. Uh, are we looking at the same comic industry? It seems that they are totally incapable of maintaining the status quo from where I am standing. But then again you are talking to the guy who expects Powerman to still have that Afro. That it is. Of course I could say the same thing about your not liking the Bioroid, or the Invid/Inbit. Its clearly a matter of personal preference. You have Rugby in the US? It is. Granted. Just about all the aliens/their stuff in media are just variations of humans/their stuff because we cant really relate to something REALLY ALIEN. Exotic then. They are supposed to be aliens from an alien culture, how can they be "dated"? What period of human history were humans using Zentraedi stuff? Could someone say "That Zentraedi helmet looks like the one your grand father used to wear in the 20's.", or "That Regult is sooo 1870."? My only gripe there is that both the Zentraedi soldier and his armour look like they've been dipped in green dye. I miss the old lavender and purple armour with verdant green visor. Simply for aesthetic reasons. Not sure how that is relevant to my tastes. Yes. I missed it though. I would have loved to see the Bioroids again but don't know if they would have been featured, or if featured, whether they would have stayed true to the original designs. Don't know. It always reminds me of Manthing from some reason, who himself reminds me of an elephant. I wonder if some of these designs aren't deliberately intended to evoke subconscious connotations.

    Given this post are you aware of this upcoming project I am proposing for Cap? http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/45456-roil-tiluvo-bioroid-assault-craft-model/ I might go for Bioroids later if this is successful.

    Ditto.

    They replaced Gloval with Lisa which didn't happen in the original. Why is that? Mb for the same reasons that other existing characters keep getting changed in comics lately? They're messing with my beloved nostalgia. Not a focus. Comparing a Zaku and a Bioroid? Other than both being sort humanoid in shape the Bioroid is vastly different to Zaku in every conceivable way: - The Bioroid responds directly to signals from the pilots brain and can respond reflexively as if it is the pilots own body. Zaku is piloted with manual controls via a standard mecha cockpit. - The Bioroid is as agile and acrobatic as its pilot and can do somersaults in combat. MB a Zaku can do that? - The Bioroid looks absolute great, every part of it is beautiful. The Zaku looks ok. (I do like Gundam but have no desire to grab a Zaku. I would cancel some of my stuff on order to grab an HMR articulated Bioroid for sure.) - Both Blue and Red Bioroids have iconic alien looking weapons. I cant even remember what the Zaku weapon looks like. The Inbit/Invid designs are just as cool. No we must have this...but I don't care if its just mehroplanes. You mean like that seen in Frontier where Alto and Klan fight in a Zentraedi "graveyard"? No I don't miss those I just want to see much more of the original designs and look that's all. I literally had to battle to stay awake during any extended Windsmearean scene. Couldn't relate to them at all. I did find the Garudans and Spherisians mildly interesting in the novels. Um, it isn't..but...I did like a few things from the first half of the Battlefield Earth novel. I imagined the Psychlo to look a bit like Grizzlor meets General Ursus rather than what we saw in that horrible movie. I also liked the Psychlo rebreather mask look on the original cover and the purple interior of the Pschlyo battletanks. But I digress. I do like them. I Might even get one if they start making them.

    But that's exactly the comment that should be going to them. Keep politics out of comics. Don't change things for "PC". Except...no Bioroids or Invid or SDFM Zentraedi anymore... and Windermear.

    What makes me mad is that instead of simply upgrading the art they decided to libtardise the story and @#$ the art. We didnt deserve that we at least deserved art like this: https://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi.pinimg.com%2F736x%2F52%2F9c%2F9b%2F529c9bc12433b770e71637050ae224fc.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.co.uk%2Fbdiegnan%2Frobotech%2F&docid=jTv7zCLwk1vGXM&tbnid=yyj-wW-cc90oqM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwj4sM2X3-faAhWELsAKHQeXC5gQMwg-KAswCw..i&w=735&h=981&bih=508&biw=320&q=bdiegnan art&ved=0ahUKEwj4sM2X3-faAhWELsAKHQeXC5gQMwg-KAswCw&iact=mrc&uact=8 The cover of issue 10 would be epic if done by a decent artist.

    Galactic Empire (Armada) vs Romulan Star Empire (Eaglemoss). Plus Sixth Scale Sandtrooper. Running out of space in my cupboard with all these Neca, Eaglemoss and Sideshow boxes.

    Not owning a car is not such a big deal anymore now that there is Uber. However you surely have a Will wherein you leave all these goodies to some beloved niece or nephew?

    Now I am imagining it next to a to scale version of a Thurvel Salan. Might need more than one lady to hold that though.
