  1. This is so crazy to me, I had to come back after a long absence. Really hard to believe they finally came to an agreement. Let's hope it opens the floodgates to getting Macross everywhere.
  2. Wrong forum, but yes, my understanding is they quietly went out of business for reasons unknown. Too bad, too. The bikes we got were fantastic.
  3. Same here, I knew about Robotech and I had bought one of those old Revell fully transformable VF-1 model kits at an antique store but it was missing parts so I came on here way way back when (2000-2001) in order to find out more about it and try to get parts. Around the same time I found the Toycom ads for the YF-19 and had to have it. Placed a pre-order with a member on here who had a shop and the rest was history. My dad and grandpa ended up getting me the whole Mac+ set in Singapore from a member on here who had a shop there, that was probably 2002 when the VF-11 came out.
  4. Got my Cavalier from HLJ. Color scheme is very nice. However, on their site it says "With Option Parts" and yet I didn't get anything. I've emailed HLJ to ask them but just wondering if anyone else had the same problem, or if I just didn't look close enough.
  5. I've been super happy with the RD line. They are amazing figures at a very agreeable price point, and they more than make up for all the sins of the MSIAs IMO. Tracked down a Guncannon DT which I had apparently missed. I'd kill for a RD Heavyarms Custom (EW Version) though!
  6. Ebay's price seems reasonable so I might just pick one up there. The DYRL CF -1A is the one I've been dying for since the V2s came out. Normally I'd get multiples but meh. Probably should pick up a Cavalier on HLJ while I still can.
  7. Anyone know what's up with the VF-1A "movie version" with option parts that's showing up on eBay but nowhere else? That's the exact one I've been waiting for.
  8. A new HGUC Zaku I Sniper? What was wrong with the other one? Edit: Oh, I see it's a custom. Mmmmm RG MkII... I know my next RG!
  9. I meant "Macek" in the sense that Harmony Gold still tries to shoot down any forward progress on Macross/Mospeada/Battletech in the US.
  10. If anyone wants to sell their VF-25S v2 for non-eBay prices, let me know!
  11. I guarantee Carl Macek has something to do with this. Why spend the extra dime to give proper subs when it's just another thing for him to bitch about?
  12. Also, there was nothing about childhoods being raped or the shade of red the UN Spacy logo should be in or the waves of people proclaiming that it sucks and will disintegrate shoulders as soon as you touch it, even though it doesn't even exist yet. And then Jenius will rate it 4x/50.
  13. Considering Whoremoney n'Gold has done nothing but sue people in a desperate cash-grab in the last 10 years, I don't think there's much to "catch up on" when it comes to Rowboatech.
  14. I had a Toynami Alpha. It was seriously one of the worst transforming toys I've ever had the displeasure of owning, and I've had those cheap plastic 1/55 knockoffs before. They were better made and used better materials. And I'm being serious. You'd have to pay me for me to own one again.
  15. Hey I think being here for 12 years is more than enough for my advice to be "sage".
  16. You mean the Robot Damashii Q-Rea? For one thing, the Q-Rea is a much much smaller toy. The Yamato Q-Rau is 1/60 so it towers over the 1/60 Valks. Otherwise they're basically the same, other than the designs are slightly different. The Q-Rea is more poseable and fun to play with whereas the Q-Rau is cool to pose with your 1/60 Valks but otherwise doesn't do much else.
  17. Why? There's no profit for them to be gained here. Shawn & Graham aren't using any Macross-related things for profit, so it flies under the radar. Falls under "free speach". Now, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if the "fine, upstanding" criminals at Whoremoney n'Gold didn't like us since we don't like them and subvert and badmouth them at every turn, but in the end there's very little they can do about it. I'm sure they are aware of the forums and probably have people that read them all the time.
  18. The proper leg fins is a big one for me. The v2 looks SO much better. Wow.
  19. I've got a couple opened boxes of Series 1 I'm going to be selling soon. I'll make a list of what all I have in it in my for sale thread.
  20. Bing. Whoremoney n'Gold, screwing our fans for a dime since 1983. Thank goodness they didn't manage to stop the new Battletech game despite how hard they tried.
  21. Still at stock boost for now, hasn't been tuned yet (got snowed in after we got home from SEMA). I'm expecting it to get around 400 at the wheels all said and done. Still got a few things to get figured out (for instance, my tire setup is super aggressive and my rears rub on the fenders, gotta get them pulled).
