    AJAC ?

    A new project. But it'll get its own thread because this one is, how shall I put it... Polluted.

    Expect some Southern Cross kit news early next year, but perhaps not quite what you might be thinking.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Not a fan of this condescending language in the trailer: -Mankind is the cause of this "mass extinction" -"We" are an "infection" -The Titans are the planet's "original" and "rightful" rulers. I'm not sure if people even recognize the linguistic programming at work here. Not only will I not be seeing this in theatres, I'll actively be seeking-out the bootleg.

    It transforms like a Bayformer, but looks like Gee-Wun. I approve.

    This is perfectly valid.

    Look how nice TE Prime is with a proper head! I suspect that I have a fix for the dark cab windows that will make them a bit more toon-accurate (and just more interesting and catchy) but that will have to wait until I have the figure in-hand.

    In fairness, the silver stripe isn't there 95% of the time in the animation. I do agree with you that the grab-bars, wipers and smaller details should have been silver, if only to give the truck a little extra detail. It looks very incomplete without those little highlighted details, don't you think? Regardless, I think Takara did a reasonably good job with the overall aesthetics, save for the kibbly stuff on the top of the chest/shoulders and back of the knees which gives him a hint of Bayverse. The Transform Element figure looks much cleaner in that respect. Maybe I'll just put the Masterpiece head on the TE Prime and have the best of both worlds.

    Official pix Love the head, but they forgot the grey/silver stripe along the truck cab--no doubt something they will milk with a later release.) Yay for the optional heads, but the trailer is a huge disappointment. Seriously, I just want Prime, the season 1 head and his blaster. Everything else is good for the recycling bin.

    I think the major blunder T/T made was to let the price slip before any beauty shots of the final figure with all accessories shown, and with the figure release some 9+ months away. They should have done the opposite. Why do I say this? Because by dropping a price-bomb like that with no corresponding eye-candy to back it up, most people will just say f*ck this crap and buy the 3P figures--WHICH WILL HIT THE MARKET FIRST! Those people who already thought the Takara figure price is outrageous have now already spent 100+ on a 3P Prime, so spending $450+ for the Takara just a few months later would be even LESS justifiable. Had they released some slick glam-shots first, there'd at least be a chance that some spell-bound people would wait it out and patiently save for the official release. This reminds me so much of the whole Disney/Star Wars debacle from just a few months ago. They thought, in their great hubris, that they were too big to fail, they could condescend to the fans with impunity and those fans would just lap-up whatever vomit Disney spewed-forth... And then the Disney/Lucasfilm/Kennedy machine got clobbered at the box-office and the merch sales took a nose-dive. Takara/Tomy may be next in line to discover the Peter Principle.
  12. The TV series is integral. EOE merely explores the same themes and Shinji's personal revelation from a different (and more convoluted) perspective. If anything, I think the TV ending is perfect just as it is.
