  1. I thought I would start a topic for these instead of burying them in the Megazone 23 topics. Animeigo did a Kickstarter for a Megazone 23 Blu-ray a while back and had around 10 to 20 slots for original shikishi artwork from Haruhiko Mikimoto. But now Animeigo is taking separate shikishi commissions. What I like about this is, it is a bit cheaper than on the Kickstarter. Of course you don't get the Megazone 23 Blu-ray. But I remember being upset with the original shikishi because I think it was just a straight shikishi offer and it was like you should be pleased with whatever you get. No communication with the artist it seemed. Animeigo has the following on the site now. "You can make suggestions as to the situation, pose, and clothing." This is good as perhaps you can get something really amazing. But he can only draw Eve. Still I'm really tempted. And I hope this might open up the possibility of other series he worked on in the future. Price = $2,000 https://www.animeigo.com/products/mikimoto-eve-shikishi Previous Examples: I like the colors on both of these. I don't like the pose that much on the second one but the first one is really nice.
  2. I think it's just rubber in general that you really need to store properly or just expect it to degrade over time. I've seen people be wary about rubber materials on high end watches as well. But speaking about figures, I have Hot Toys 89 Batman and I don't have problems with it.
  3. Yeah I think that's the issue that people were talking about on the SideshowCollectors forum a while back. That and Hot Toys rubber bodies in general were causes to be concerned about if you did a lot of posing or didn't store them in good areas. I don't know anything about that ED-209 like why that would need to be a rubber type of material unless it was like that in the movie.
  4. More Rook! Always a good thing. I'll look into this one. I hope she gets released too. I'm not crazy about that flame part on the base. Might as well make the whole Invid mech.
  5. They are pushing the Skystriker in the final days. Let's see what happens. I also can't believe it's that price and they include stickers. I remember a youtube reviewer being shocked when he saw stickers in the package on a high end toy.
  6. I think Hot Toys made a Robocop. I vaguely remember Hot Toys's version of the big mech from Robocop having problems. I remember my first experience with Neca was poor. I saw the pre-order or promo pictures of a figure. I was looking forward to it. Then I saw it on release at a comic shop and it didn't look as well painted as that promo picture. I was kind of shocked. That was the first time I saw a real bait and switch type situation with a toy. I believe it was only an arcade game. I know I never finished it and it's on my list to find one day.
  7. Shame they couldn't do better with the faces. Other than that, the figures look fine. But I believe the rule I've heard many times is that you get the face right first.
  8. This Voltron reminds me too much of those Transformer's cassette tapes. Which were cool. But Voltron shouldn't be like this.
  9. Not yet. I have Mirage's original jet which I like. I watched the first 6 or so episodes. Right before they went to another planet. It was a two part I think that had the Silent Hacker song at the beginning. But anyway, the original jet wasn't difficult to get from 1999. I'm not one of the people who get hyped up for a pre-order. This stuff shouldn't be hard to get. If it is the company is doing something wrong.
  10. I'm going to watch the third episode tonight. I do prefer the look of the last short animation we received before the last movie. But most of the environments in Black Lotus are well done. Also, the lead character Elle is well designed. I wouldn't be surprised if we get a figure of her. I like the opening song too. However, at times the animation seems rough. And I hate it when people say movies look like a video game as if they are putting down video games. But the animation at times reminded me of not just bad video game animation but older video game animation. It seems to happen mostly on the side characters though. I'm not sure about the thing they are doing with Elle at times. I've seen it in other cyberpunk shows that I can't remember right now. We'll see how that plays out in future episodes. If you like cyberpunk anime I don't see how you can pass on this one.
  11. I hope it's the whole Robotech they work on and not just Macross. Let them not do what other companies do and we barely get any thing from the other two series. I've never purchased anything from ThreeZero but I've seen their products. So I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Robotech. But like I've mentioned around here, I prefer Southern Cross and New Generation over Macross Saga. I also hope that whatever or whoever caused Prime 1 to make barely passable Robotech statues doesn't influence ThreeZero.
  12. Thanks. First time hearing about these. It's cool seeing new merchandise that I missed back then. That poster will display well with the statue that is coming out.
  13. Cool. Post a picture if you can. Are you sure they were giving the holographic posters out at theaters? No need to post pictures of the ones on the first page. I have them myself. Unless you have a cool Ghost in the Shell setup or something. I still have to frame them for my setup.
  14. Anyone have these vintage Ghost in the Shell movie posters? They are supposedly from Hot Topic back in the day. And feature a holographic foil type printing. Someone on MFC needs additional information if possible. I don't remember seeing these myself back then. But I remember similar posters sold and given away for movie and video game pre-orders. Also according to someone on Reddit, there is supposed to be a version of the image below in this holographic foil but I haven't seen an image of that yet. Appreciate the help of anyone that remembers.
  15. It's all opinion with youtube stuff, forums and the like. You don't know if it's informed opinion or not. But I would say it's not a perfect ending at all. That's coming from someone who has seen all the movies. Read a good amount of all the books. Read a bunch of the comics. And I remember hearing I think Roger Moore talk about what kind of horrible plans the bad guy had for Bond and how he would figure out how to outwit them. That's the blueprint that started from Dr. No (the movie). Of course, you can say Daniel Craig is a different Bond which is true. But he's also a Bond that is heavily influenced by other series. And is in an alternate type of Bond universe having events (direct or modified) and items from the previous iterations. But probably worse is that Daniel Craig's Bond run was over in Spectre. That's why it ended the way it did with Bond throwing away his gun. Even one of the producers admitted that was it. Daniel Craig coming back is why the ending is the way it is.
  16. Looks like they are trying to get more of these Classified figures in stores. I saw some in a Walmart recently. Not a full selection like the old days of figures but I saw I think: Flint, Lady Jaye, Cobra Commander, Snake Eyes (Origins version), Baroness (Origins version). I can't remember the rest. It was only one or two more. I just remembered that I saw a retro Stalker which was way too much. Like over $20 for a small figure. More than the Classified figures. Also, a HISS tank I think.
  17. No cheats for me. The only time I remember cheating on games was during the NES time as I had a Max and Advantage joystick. But at times it was better not to cheat. I vaguely remember using the turbo on a Rygar boss and it was better just playing normal.
  18. I still have the original game which I too never finished. I could get to that female robot boss with the shield without dying but never figured out her weak point. I guess I'll try again one day since I'm older now. I downloaded that back in the day but haven't played it yet. I'm sure it's still out there somewhere. I hope you got the Prime 2D Demo as well which was pulled. I heard that was good. I downloaded that and the soundtrack when it was up. Speaking about Legend of Zelda. I remember seeing a fan remake of the original NES game that looked pretty good. I downloaded that as well but haven't tried it yet. Zelda and Adventure of Link are two of the games Nintendo should have remade similar to the old SNES Mario All-Stars but apparently they don't want to.
  19. I remember watching the whole original series but I can't remember a thing about the story. All I know is the Eureka girl had a good design. The show had sky surfing robots. And the ship which I believe was called the Gekko was cool. Other than that I remember nothing. I'll check wiki but from those new clips I don't think I'm going to watch this one even though the animation looks cool.
  20. In many ways Hasbro makes me sick. That Skystriker should be on toy store shelves not in some Kickstarter for a big company. So called Social Media is part of the problem as well with these people selling the toy. It's way too much as well. I can't remember but I don't think the original Skystriker was more than $50 retail back in the day. I don't care how much they are improving the design. The big playsets were around $100 if not a bit more. I remember because I wanted like many others the Flagg Aircraft Carrier and $100 was a lot for a toy even though it was huge. The Terror Drome was a bit cheaper. I guess if they did a Kickstarter for a modern Flagg it would be an absurd sum.
  21. I guess people should understand Harmony Gold by now. It's like that fool me once line. But still I had high hopes. I found one youtube review of Southern Cross / Masters that said it didn't look that great either. So far the rest of the youtube reviews I saw were unboxings.
