  1. Oh, right. No, I just legit forgot about 'em in the moment. And I actually like those, aside Into Darkness screwing itself over by pandering so hard to WoK fans. But, well, the sort of people that are hating on Discovery and Picard are the sort that aren't going to like the Kelvin Universe movies anyways.
  2. The number of people in this thread that seem to be hatewatching is kind of weird, honestly. If you have this much contempt for the show just turn it off. Discovery turned into something decent, Picard was decent even if not amazing, and there's like 3 more shows coming on top of, what, 28 seasons of existing Star Trek to watch beyond that and 10 movies?
  3. Maybe I should have rewatched season 1 before hand but, eh. Seemed fine to me, still. Dude had hope, had a fixation, and had clearly been at it a little while.
  4. I thought it was perfectly fine. Not the same guy as season 1, but that's the nature of the setting.

    Hi-Metal R

    Awful on the knees.
  6. Specifically, the Red Frame Kai is delayed until "after April" with HLJ and Amazon.co.jp both saying May currently. The MRD Shinkiro got delayed until March 28th, and a bunch of other stuff has been pushed back at least a month for Bandai, along with several delays got GSC. It's likely going to hit pretty much every toy manufacturer, honestly.
  7. It already got a second season approved. Roddenberry would probably be wondering where his check was and not much more, honestly. And if his TNG era ideas are anything to go by, let alone the bullshit he did during TOS' production, he wouldn't have room to speak anyways.
  8. If these are the guys I'm thinking of, all their stuff is ~1/18th scale?
  9. It actually comes up several times that they a budget set by the UN and they have to deal with limitations based on it. It's even a plot point in End of Evangelion that the UN didn't approve their budget requests that would have allowed them to rebuild and add new defenses because SEELE was planning to invade and that would have made it harder. Also, Shia Surprise! time. The RD Eva 01, 00, and 08b IIC went up for pre-order this morning. https://www.tamashiinations.com/product_detail/evangelion/robot_spirits.php Eva 01: https://www.hlj.com/robot-damashii-side-eva-eva-unit-01-rebuild-of-evangelion-bans59094 | https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-056647 Eva 00: https://www.hlj.com/robot-damashii-side-eva-eva-unit-00-unit-00-kai-rebuild-of-evangelion-bans59095 | https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-056648 Eva 08b-IIC: https://www.hlj.com/robot-damashii-side-eva-eva-unit-08-beta-improvised-combat-configuration-bans59588 | https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-056649
  10. I figured it seemed fun and I've spent far, far more money on far, far stupider things. Did wait and go to a matinee showing at least. The running gag with Huntress and her name and not getting to say it before victims die after calling her something else was hilarious if nothing else.
  11. I thought it was at least fairly fun, but nothing truly amazing. And the Birds of Prey element only really comes together for the final act of it.
  12. If I remember right the idea behind the Metal Builds is that they're the ideal version of what NERV wanted. The MBs are the no budget, sky's the limits designs and the show/movie designs are what results when NERV has to cut back to meet budgetary restrictions.
  13. Pretty much. The reason they went with the cable tether over a reactor was overall safety, if I remember things right from the Jet Alone episode. But they're not really at a point where they have the luxury of worrying about things like that.
  14. By the look of it using Jet Alone parts to repair Unit 02 extended to using a Jet Alone reactor to power it. Those things sticking out of the backpack look like control rods.
  15. The best way I've seen the Fast and Furious movies described, especially the later ones, is that they're superhero movies where everyone's super power is CAR.
  16. I'll just say that they present it in a way that makes sense, even if at first thought it's awkward as hell. I'd suggest giving it a watch, episode 6 was incredibly satisfying.
  17. "At least 10 ships" is what I saw, with the Gargarin and Chimera classes announced by name.
  18. They're doing a few more, announced within the last week or so, and apparently will be doing even more later. And yes, that's the Eclipse-class from STO.
  19. Roughly twice the price of the original RD Evas, IIRC, but not bad for modern RD/Figuarts/Figma/etc pricing. Depends on just how many accessories, including hands, they come with. The old RDs had an absurd number of hands didn't they? Like 7 or 8 sets?
