  1. This happened yesterday during an airshow in Florida... Talk about your HOLY **** moments(especially for the poor guy that nearly got landed on)! Thankfully no one was hurt and the plane looks like it can still be salvaged and not be a total loss.
  2. I don't want to sound like a downer here, but I don't think Macross is going to be recieved as well as it's expected to be in the west. The lack of access to or knowledge of Macross over the years for the average anime fan has expectations being something they're not. People are expecting some type of epic space opera that rivals the Gundam in scale with giant galaxy spanning space battles featuring cool transforming robot fighters. Deep down we all know that's only partially the case because the other part is Big West using the franchise as an advertising vehicle to sell music. Mu
  3. I get what you're trying to say here, nobody wants to see a Harrison Ford in his late 70s going on adventures in the 70s and trying to act like he in his 20s or 30s when it comes to fights and stunts, but it would be a huge mistake to move away from the tone of the classic adventure serial that made the series what it is. Crystal Skull tried that by channeling cheesy 50s scifi with it's tone by tossing commies, pseudoscience that made no sense, psychic powers, and flying saucers and sucked the high hard one for it. Now? He do something else stupid or weird lately wit
  4. Well you should take comfort(or horror) in the fact that USAF Tornado's exist in at least Wonder Woman 84's universe.
  5. I keep saying that could still work if you bring in Chris Pratt as Shia's older half brother from the time Indy banged Willie Scott in Temple of Doom. It would make a nice juxtaposition where Chris's character acts more like Indy than Shia's character and Shia acting like you think Willie Scott's kid would act. Potential buddy cop styled theme there.
  6. Going to start the Cobi P-38 Lightning when I get home. I'll upload pictures and give my thoughts when I'm done.
  7. It could very well be the other way around. I can just picture everyone in this forum getting pissy if something like Macross Frontier gets released with a Robotech Frontier label like the Yamato 2199/2202/2205 series getting released as Starblazers 2199/2202/2205 etc even if the original content from Frontier is unaltered and has a faithful translation to the original Japanese version.
  8. They knew of "A" titan in the 1940s and as far as they knew it got nuked to death by the Castle Bravo Bikini atoll test. By 1973 Monarch was on the verge of being defunded until John Goodman's character convinced the senator overlooking the project to fund an expedition to Skull Island. With Kong largely confined to Skull Island and vulnerable to conventional weaponry Monarch likely didn't have a lot to do until the Muto spores in the Godzilla skeleton were discovered and the Janjira attack occured in 1999. It's only from there and the result of the battle i
  9. Not to nitpick, but the original FJ-1 Fury was a navy design. The design was reworked into the F-86 Sabre which provided the basis of the FJ-2 and FJ-3 version of the Fury. The design was reworked again to the FJ-4 Fury which only bears a superficial resemblance to the F-86. All this could be rendered moot if you consider the original FJ-1 Fury started as an attempt to strap a jet engine to a P-51 Mustang airframe.
  10. The shot of two monsters that size fist fighting on the deck of an aircraft carrier without it capsizing or snapping in two is also plain ridiculous... But it's also f'n cool!
  11. The last battleships of the Iowa class were retired, put into mothballs, or made into a museum ship not long after the first Gulf War ended. The last one USS Wisconsin was converted into a partial museum ship with restrictions in case of reactivation up until around 2009 when she was fully retired gifted to the city of Norfolk Va. and any restrictions as a museum ship were lifted.
  12. So far the suggested prices I've seen are 23,000-25,000 yen which is roughly half the price of Kotobukiya Frame Arms Girl or Megami Device kit. Now I know Bandai is an industrial giant and can mass produce these on a level Aoishima and Kotobukiya can't which drives the price down, but it makes me wonder where they'll be cutting costs too. It doesn't seem like there's a lot to go with the base kit so that helps. I'm also a little skeptical on the quality. The early attempts at girl kits in the Build Fighters line were a complete mess full of ill fitting parts and dead so
