  1. No, I have young kids so it's very tough for me to get to the theater these days. While I love Macross Frontier, I was really let down by the movies... I think my hopes were just way too high after enjoying the show and DYRL. I had visions of a DYRL approach to Frontier.
  2. Ugh, I was hoping to ship this before the new rates go in place... gonna be cutting it close!
  3. I broke down and finally asked LP when mine will ever ship. For a minute there, I thought they were going to be my go-to store. All these years in the hobby and I've never found a store to be my absolute go-to.
  4. Also, the first Macross Frontier movie is terrible. SOMEONE HAD TO SAY IT! The second one is *kinda* saved by mech porn.

    Whoa, WWM with UN Spacy Kite huh? Cool.
  7. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good studio going in the house I'm working out of while I build my new one. Even the photo situation is pretty bad. Still a few months out from moving again.
  8. You're buying into weak, easily abandoned canon in a genre known for abandoning canon way too much as a reason to dislike a drawing.
  9. In Robotech, stealth could just mean it doesn't have a big 'protoculture signature' like the very stealthy shadow fighter.
  10. I agree on the pricing. It's hard to argue it's a bargain but it certainly seems like a more complicated design than the DX VF-1 so the fact they're ballpark similar pricing while Sentinel is a much smaller company producing much fewer units, it seems like it's at least a 'fair' price. I guess the argument could be made that they should have made more parts out of metal and stepped up the price a little for a better experience but anyone involved in manufacture has to look at each part and figure out 'good enough' to make it do what its supposed to without being more expensive than it needs to be. In this case, there were a couple parts that may have been misjudged and/or a couple parts that are more prone to manufacturing issues. My Yellow broke similarly and just like this user... it never felt right so I think that part has QC issues on top of being subjected to a lot of force.
  11. Ooh I like what they did with the thrusters in the wheel.
  12. I remember drooling over 1/35 Gakken Robotech Alpha toys at Gemco... I think they were bought out and eventually became Targets.
  13. I'd second that. Riding a Banshee or whatever they were called was my favorite part of Animal Kingdom by a long shot. I'd second that as well. I remember the protagonist brushing away bubbles and thinking how cool that looked. I watched some of it more recently while my son watched it for the first time on a traditional screen and it was definitely 'meh.'
  14. Thank you! Lots of credit for that video and a ton of the content on the website goes right back to this community who were often the trailblazers and whose observations have really helped steer the reviews and guides.
  15. Yes, customer service if something is wrong is hit-and-miss (mostly miss) but I've never heard of them not delivering.
  16. The Legioss toys also have those 'for future use' type clips.
  17. Huh, it looks like the Stick and Ray figures were transposed in the toy version. Still super fun way to display them!
  18. I believe a primary difference from Yamato to Arcadia was a shift from viewing themselves as toy company to more of a part-time model. I would guess Arcadia has very few full-time employees at this point and it's more a labor of love for most involved.
