  1. (6) Facebook this is a beautiful VF-4... with it's gun (does the VF-4 also use a GU-11?)
  2. derpy. Someone explain the moon's... shape? an Andy BB parked in a junk pile of Galantis vessel debris? So this clip is mostly the greenhorns during work-ups before their maiden deployment to Icandar...?
  3. You could always fault the trainers for that. I suspect alot of changes have occurred on Yamato (enough to make even seasoned flops feel challenged)... but
  4. I suspect my brother's ashes are dusty ATM. UY, I'm uncertain if it was his most favorite (i guess Sailor Moon was that) but I'm certain he would be curious about this...
  5. First, is that Smiling Captain sitting behind the new Cheng (Chief Engineer) at 0:22? Second, did they change the arrangement of the classic 2199 stations? That clip generates nothing but excitement!
  6. Betty White, 'Golden Girls' actor and comedian whose career spanned eight decades, dies at 99 (nbcnews.com) Betty White is dead at age 99 : NPR 😕
  7. I, for one, was surprised he was still alive until now. What's funny, kids will play the game and likely only vaguely understand who he was... let alone comprehend his impact on the sport...
  8. Those troops didn't quit the NUNS, they were either kicked-out outright as BCD 'winners' or simply denied the opportunity to reenlist (Nah, dawg. We can keep your billet empty. Even IF your presence was needed, it isn't wanted). That's for the enlisted side. The officers, either they were cashiered out or forced to resign (because they would NOT promote them).
  9. There is one thing we're forgetting: What time is it, depends on where you are in the Galaxy. I'll explain, in Real World terms... What IF, in every colonized system humanity spreads to, you put a Overtech Web & Hubble Satellite in space and start mapping space, from the perspective of 'What Time is it?' at any particular W&B Sat placed. Can we agree that eventually, someone is gonna start noticing massive Zent (or presumed) fleets out there that was busy taking a pitstop somewhere and somewhen (since everything else outside of fold navigation is speed of light limited).
  10. Thank you, this pic is epic. I'm extremely curious for this season (can we call it that?) as i know so little of the original (although 3 seasons were aired in some parts of the US in the late 70's, only Iscandar and The Comet Empire seasons were aired on local TV in Cleveland in 1979 +/-).
  11. Ok, I'll ask: Is Invid99 another account of Brofessor? This autistic obsession with an IP that we celebrate when we get to piss on, is quite... odious. I'll admit its good popcorn discussion but in the end, i'd rather discuss things like.... anything BUT Robotech. and Merry Xmas, everyone.
  12. Needless to say, this video SPOILS things.... and also explains why things are really, really bad for our heroes and 'heroes'...
  13. *Intentionally tosses a beer keg in the soup* Can you describe how similar (or dissimilar) Gestam Jump Navigation from SBY 2199 is to Dimensional Fold travel?
  14. So who thought the TV run was successful enough to merit a Movie?
  15. My first thought: WTF is that a Goofy Eye on her forehead? My Second thought: OK, so it's NOT a marvel U film? *Warms up the popcorn*
  16. Someone elsewhere mentioned How movie/TV credits are dished out on re-releases (often changes being intentional not to improve the IP but to ensure the artist/technician/writer gets "credit" thus gets a paycheck) somewhere else. Perhaps the changes were cause 'celebration' just for a paycheck?
  17. Thank you for this: My kid was a few minutes late so we didn't sit down until Isamu just launched into the air... I would say there was about 10 peps at the Southpark Mall Cinemarc in CLE... and i was the only one HOLDING a VF-11B (in fighter mode. man, that was bitch to transform from Battroid. and yes, my Wife made fun of me bringing to the theater, LOL). thoughts: Still, it was enjoyable to watch with my kid (we never see him unless he needs something washed)...
  18. Thank you for verification but i am still curious: The person mentions the Tipped Up nose to explain the reason... could there be a connection? After Googling some random images of the retired F-111 (because i have never personally seen the aircraft unless it was passing though Sigonella Italy in 1992, post Desert Storm), I wonder what exactly does that dude mean? Other than VG wings, there is almost nothing in common with the VF-1, visually. The aircraft was recently retired (when viewed through the lense of Macross) in 1998 so I would imagine it being pressed back into emergency service for the Anti-UN War but not in any naval-based combat setting...
  19. A couple days ago, on a Youtube thread about the F-14, the topic took a swing on macross and the VF-1's formation being derived from the F-14. " @Teh PW *coughs Shoji Kawamori based the design of the VF-1 on the F-111 (the tipped up nose is the giveaway)" Now i was both mildly annoyed and yet curious (because i didn't view the comment as a attack) because i never heard this before... is there any truth to this comment?
  20. That's confirmed. It was mentioned on the new promo that i seen on my regular phone feed a couple days ago. Also, in related news, I got Two tickets for me and The Boy. 😁
  21. Is there any answers to where it be available or is this one of those "it'll be everywhere but it'll be at ONE theater at only one select time" deal...?
  22. Sooooooo what is exactly going on? Is Desler pretty much lighting the match on the justification of the Nebula Empire to go to war with Gamalas (and thus endanger Iscandar in the crossfire/The nebs looking at Iscandar as easy pickings)?
  23. If that story is 'cannon', why did they not actually talk to the Zentradi Fleet? Is it a prime directive gimmick? Or just a major bought of preservation because they think the Zent fleet will just go rambo on any aspect of the NUNS because of existing Protoculture Rules? Could they not absorb them into the NUNS?
