Robotech Stand in the SDCC

I notice some action figures illustration are in the same style like the variant cover comic

Too bad those figures have even less articulation than the Oritoy-designed prototypes. :mellow:

To echo what was written on another forum, I wonder what happened?

The KitzConcept releases are looking better and better for SDF-TV figure collectors.

what about the this: https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=62299.0  This actually troubles me: why are they doing this?

Smart money says Harmony Gold probably made Strange Machine Games buy the RPG license at the same time they purchased a license to make that board game.  Harmony Gold did publicly refute Palladium Books's claim that they (Palladium) were outbid by someone else for the Robotech license, indicating that their license had been revoked because of the failure to deliver on the Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter.  It's probably that HG licensed the RPG and board game rights to Strange Machine as a package deal, possibly a compulsory one like Harmony Gold's earlier (unsuccessful) attempt to strongarm Palladium Books into acquiring the Robotech 3000 license sight-unseen at an additional cost by making it a requirement for renewal of their existing Robotech license c.2000.

Harmony Gold is definitely in "once bitten, twice shy" mode right now as Strange Machine Games explicitly confirmed on their official Facebook page that their license prohibits them from using Kickstarter and other forms of crowdfunding on Robotech projects.

HG's actions since their binding arbitration with Tatsunoko Production over royalties definitely have an air of desperation to them, like they're trying to squeeze as much cash as they can out of the Macross license before they lose it with a merchandising blitz before they lose the license in early 2021.

I am disappoint. I was expecting something grittier to go with the comics! Shouldn't she come with a baseball bat?
