  1. Now there's an idea I can get behind. All the standard Tolkien races make it to be space fairing civilization and then... Hmm.
  2. Nice to see some Milia Battroid art. I feel like there isn't much of around.
  3. @nightmareB4macross Did you print those yourself or order them from the dude in South America or ?
  4. Good info. Continous polls along this line "what's it worth" might make for an interesting site feature.

    Macross figures

    Source? Are the zentran figures MEPToys products? 3D printed things we can buy on Shapeways?
  6. That would probably cover 70% of it. I'd also get rid of most scenes with the flower girl and put a 3x limit on fight sequences. Those changes alone would cut what, 2 hours off of the whole show?
  7. Subscriptions kits? Guess it's a step above real life loot boxes in that you know what you are getting up front, but not by much. The motorized movement and controls are nice though.
  8. I've said it before, I'll say it again, I'd love for there to be a fanedit of 7 reducing it to about 10 hours work of video. Get rid of what is slow and repetitive, emphasize the villains plans, and sprinkle in missing backstory from 7 plus, and you would have something really great. Sadly I'm not an editor nor do I have the time.
  9. Well in the animated realm, we have had lots of multi-verse crossovers with multiple Bats. Justice League Unlimited comes to mind. I love that the only one who can 'defeat' Batman, is another Batman.
  10. Agreed. I liked it way more than I expected. Perhaps more than Umbrella Academy which I really dug. I still surprised that superhero shows can bring something new to the table. Eager for the next season of both of those. Now we get to see how good Watchmen is relative to those. We truly live in the golden age of geekdom.
  11. What I find funny is that my buddy whom I met in college, worked for Harmony Gold and actually helped code the 2002-ish version of the RT website. I've actually been to the offices. I remember seeing the RT3000 poster on the wall thinking, what the hell is that thing about? What does Dr Manhattan have to do with the Invid? Why is there a poster of a live-action Heidi movie I've never heard of on the wall next to it? I found it odd. HG wasn't producing anything that I knew off. The offices were in the movie theater they own on Sunset in Hollywood. That was also weird to me. I didn't know the ins/outs of the Agrama family at the time, but it seemed odd to me that the people responsible for RT owned a stand-alone movie theater that didn't show any movies, that they didn't make anything else, and that they weren't importing other anime, much less any new Macross stuff like Zero. Oh well, I eventually learned. He did share with me that while the RT webstore got so-so traffic, the forums associated with the site had lots and lots of traffic, so much so that he, being one of the main webdevs at the time, had to rescue and move them around to better hosts a couple of times. They seemed to churn through employees at a fair clip. After a couple of years he left too. It was just a job to him, he was never really into Macross, though his brother owned Plus on VHS when it came out.
  12. In a cast as good as DS9's, he managed to do the impossible, stick out by delivering his lines on par with great's with years more acting experience than his own. Now give us a DS9 HD edition CBS/Paramount.
  13. Make me almost wish that someone with actual talent and a love for Macross would do a comic in that universe using the mechs we have todate to keep costs down and ensure a good run. Might seem hoaky, but I rather artists spend time coming up with a good story and drawing non-mechs, since there are already 3D models for them. Guess I'm just thirsty for some moar Macross. When's that new Delta movie gonna be done already?
  14. I think the original has a level of charm that Moore's 2004 effort didn't quite reach. Yes we liked most characters in nuBSG, but like The Walking Dead, we often tuned in to see how they'd make it out alive another week or to see what really effed up machinations would be their downfall. It was different then pulling for this rag-tag groups of refugees trying on a caravan across the stars. I'm actually a bit disappointed to find out that this isn't a reboot. I wanted to get away from "the cylons are just terminators built by our ancestors" and the "who are the final five" low-budget storylines. I wanted other species out in the universe. Above all I loved the Egyptian motifs of the original. Though the Mk II Vipers were a nice upgrade of the design, I found the rest of the industrial design, business suits, and other 20th Century Earth paraphernalia annoying. Yes, ogBSG could sometimes come of as a campy Star Wars rip-off, but it had a look and feel that nuBSG didn't live up to. With todays tech there's no reason that vipers and cylons couldn't have a more polished, Stargate design and feel. And while some may be put off by the pseudo-religious backstory that is largely based on Mormon theology, I actually think it makes for a perfect Sci-Fi plot device:
  15. Apologies for the initial mis-title folks, 'twas early moments still when I posted it. I just renamed the topic.
  16. Caprica would have been better served as a show not connected to BSG but more about Silicon Valley pirates in the age of ascending AI. It tackled some story lines about IP that I've yet to see addressed on other shows.
