  1. We will get new characters and stories with Rian Johnson's future trilogy. Stories set in-between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy will be told in the new animated series called Resistance. So we will get all that. I hope this movie will expand on Boba's story in the Clone Wars (which was cut short). It could also work as a follow-up to Solo, including some of the characters in that movie.
  2. Just came home from the cinema. I thought it was good. Way better than The Last Jedi (even if that doesn't actually say much), but maybe not quite as enjoyable as Rogue One was too me. The biggest flaw I could find is that I think the climax could have been bigger in scale and scope, but maybe I'm just spoiled by Rogue One's epic Battle of Scarif. Then one could get fixed on that they guy playing Han is not the best fit, but I thought he did an okay job at least and I decided to just not think about it. There were quite a few fun references for the fans to pick up on throughout the movie, but it was overall more subtle than in Rogue One. But I think a lot of casual fans will be very confused over one specific extended cameo near the end of the movie.
  3. Super Macross Mecha Fun Time Discussion Thread!

    Well, it's commonly said in Sweden that the Danes need to spit out the porridge so one can understand what they say. (Why porridge? No idea.)

    If we allow for errors in the romanization, it could be zorn, which means anger or wrath in German. That would make Panzerzorn a pretty cool name. Gern means gladly, willingly, surely or with pleasure - it's actually a bit difficult to explain the usage in English, but it's just the same as the Swedish word gärna. I would interpret Zaubergern as something like "magic, please" as a request or someone that is happy to bring magic (but the composition of the word is a bit strange). I could not find a meaning for Elgar. Not quite true. As a Swede, I understand about 80-90% of spoken Norwegian. They basically just use a bit more old-fashioned inflections and use a higher pitch when they talk. And the Swedish spoken in southern Sweden is very close to Danish. I understand less of other Germanic languages though (except German, which I've studied a bit). I agree that German and Dutch have their distinct sounds, but the Nordic Germanic languages are actually very muddled.
  5. FEXTHOBBY Macross Line up

    When I made my first order late on the first day of preorder I got order number 1020. When I made my second order yesterday, I got order number 1058. I may be wrong, but I think they started counting at 1000. It's unlikely that they got in 1000 orders in the first few hours and then only 38 afterwards in a week's time.

    I saw that as well. That "turd" is actually supposed to look like foam on a glass of beer. The building is a brewery.

    Japan already has a Statue of Liberty. https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/odaiba-statue-of-liberty It's also very close to the Gundam statue, one might add.
  8. Hi-Metal R

    Yes, it did. Thanks jenius and everyone else!

    So the standalone version is white? Those pics were unfortunately not very useful, the VF-1J looked just as grey as the Glaug to my eyes.
  10. Hi-Metal R

    The upcoming Thunder Hummer armors have resparked my interest in the HMR VF-1, but I haven't kept track of the releases. Is there a HMR Hikaru VF-1J that is actually white and not grey and has the correct angle of the red stripes?

    Am I the only one who does not understand what makes the official names "cool"? They mostly seem like nonsense combination of words to me. And "Gipsy", a spelling variant of a name for the Romani people that is often seen as pejorative, combined with the word "danger"... does not give good associations with me. Especially since xenophobic rhetoric against the Romani, in which they are described as a danger to society, is on a rise in my country and most of Europe. Gipsy Avenger works better in that sense, but only just.
  12. Pacific Rim Uprising

    Just came home from the cinema. The first movie is one of the best science fiction movies of the century according to me, but the second doesn't hold up as well. It felt a bit too much Marvel and too little Del Toro. Still overall pretty good though. I hope there will be a third movie.
  13. Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter

    Yeah, not completely new news. Two of those games I've heard about before, but the third one was new to me. There's also another company, SolarFlare Games, that are making Robotech card games (not CCG) - one for the Macross Saga (with a planned expansion), one for The Masters Saga and one for The New Generation.
