    No Love for Southern Cross?

    What exactly do you mean? Is there confirmation that MAAS toys is no longer producing the planned Southern Cross merchandise?

    Right. But don't people also examine interior art before making a buy or don't buy decision? I don't buy a comic before I see what it's artwork is like.
  3. If Hayate Immelman and the whole of Delta Flight die......well I might just blink after 6 seconds.

    Cool Zentraedi figure. I think it would look better if the blue was replaced with a darker colour though.

    Macross figures

    I've already added these to my "watch out for" list. I don't think Bandai is ever going to make them. Non-release of Britai by Bandai = epic fail.
  6. I'd be in for that as long as they keep the characters and designs true to the original. I'd definitely purchase an anthology prequel if it contained an animated short of Operation Mona.

    Then Earth would have no chance at all. Seriously, Dolza now knows about the Grand Cannon and it will surely be his first target. I'd say its not looking good for the micronians...but this story is so warped from the original that I would just be speculating. MB the Invid will arrive to distract the Zentraedi or something.

    Hi-Metal R

    I don't know, while transforming the DX Chogokin VF1J the thought that was going through my mind was "this transformation gimmick is a bit of a schlep". I wonder how many times people actually transform their Valkyrie between one mode and another. Give me the non-transforming Zentradi mecha any day.

    Hi-Metal R

    Indeed. It's been waaaay too long since the last Zentradi mecha release.
  11. Indeed. Idols, love triangles and human politics may good enough for some other generic anime, but Macross started out as so much more. The next series needs a intriguing alien enemy or I won't give a damn.

    DX Chogokin vf 1j came. I love how each digit on the hands is articulated. I want a vf 1s to go with this. Zentradi power armours at this level would be fantastic.

    Is that not a perfect review of Macross 7?

    I wonder if, decades from now, there will be any demand for Delta merch the way there still is for SDF snd DYRL.

    I think thats a vain hope. All we ever see are idols nowadays.

    Royal Guard came today. Now if HT will just release the Deathstar Trooper.
  20. 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.)
  22. 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.
  24. 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."
