    I forgot that they killed them off in Robotech. Didn’t they supposedly shove Misa into an escape pod in an off screen thing? It’s been so long since I’ve seen that version. 

    Yes, in Robotech they killed off the entire bridge crew except for 'Lisa.' Not recalling the scene perfectly, 'Lisa' tells 'Rick' about the others shoving her into an escape pod. I don't remember if there had been other pods or if they were damaged, and I may be mixing up the actual scene and a novelization that I read a couple decades ago. But that's the gist.

    I was 12 and was very saddened by that. But, thirty years later I come here and find that it was ALL A LIE!!!:yahoo:

    @derex3592 The wonky decals notwithstanding, your build is looking really good.

    This is one of those show's that should be absolute garbage and dumb as hell, as well as canceled after one season... at least for me I've found it entertaining and I'm looking forward to this new season. 

    Essentially it's the rich vs. the poor on the islands of the Carolina's, blackmail, revenge, murder and apparently the ultimate treasure hunt. The main cast are teens but so far it hasn't become 90210 in the worst ways possible. :lol:

    So you saying I should give it a chance!:D Glad to hear it's not dwelling in the 90210 basement. My next day off, I'll give it a little binge.

  3. I'll watch (most) of the movies and (some) of the series, but not all. That's just too much. I'll happily pick and choose and go from there.

    I'm real excited for a new Supergirl movie, and hopefully one with the New52 version's edge. And that Gadot, Affleck and Momoa are not fully out, but might still be in there. I will definitely watch more Batman, both versions, and more Superman, which is gladly not going to redo the whole beginning all over again. And bring on a series based on Themyscira! Awesome. Can't wait to see Gunn's DC'verse!

  4. Finally got the head redone! Will need to clean some things up, but this part is basically finished, Yay!😁

    The blue are pieces from a small TIE fighter kits, as are the nine resin 'missile arrays,' the beige are cut up pieces from the old head, and the central piece at the back is a resin copy from a part of a AMT/ERTL X-Wing. The HEW turrets are just press-fit into drilled holes.

    With that out of the way I can move onto reattaching the arms to the flight pods.

    I think I have a problem..... 🤔  Voyager has been added to the to build pile... LOL 

    Reliant decals proceeding.... Screwed one up, kind of a main one on top of course! U shape rounded decal over a complex multi level curve.... Yeh... Ok. Polar Lights. My biggest problem was that I was looking at the decal placement sheet and not the freakin box art. Would have seen immediately that it was supposed to go higher. Oh well. Tried soaking it in Micro Set but no good. Once these things are down they are down for good 😧

    Use some tape. Stick it down on the decal and pull it up, just watch out for the other ones.

    That will be sometime in early 2024, when we can finally the situation we're in now straightened out. :(

    Hope it's sooner than that, and not because of modeling, but because you certainly don't need any more shite. Don't be a stranger.;)

    @Bolt That is a great looking force you are building up there!

     

  6. Just finished the first season of Blood and Treasure, and it was surprisingly good. Way better than National Treasure (the series). More than enough action, fun and interesting characters, with some nice nods to other movies tossed in here and there. Gonna start season two now.

    Not sure why the trailer was deleted since only the teaser was posted so here it is valid to post again.

    Saw this, and liked it a lot! Much better than Wandering Earth or Warriors of Future (which I did not finish). And the trailer was misleading, at least for me... It's very character driven and emotional.

    If there was one thing I'd change about the ending...

    Spoiler

    ....it would be to have Seo-hyun put her 'mother' into the pleasure bot that one guy was working on. It was far more of a human-simulacrum than all the others, and wouldhave offered her more of a life and freedom than the strictly android body she ended up in.

    Just a small quibble, though.

    True, but this brings up a question, in that pose, what handles are they gripping exactly? The handles are way out on the side!!! 

    Good point, good point! 😀

    Well, you could always do one of her and Max choking each other over the console and call it "wedded bliss!" lol

    That's a idea for a few more poses though, the knife 'fencing' on their first date.
