  1. Does this answer the question? https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/USS_Goddard Not the best font choice if you ask me. Carl
  2. Hello, I recently just watched the first 2 seasons of the Mandalorian and really enjoyed it. However I have one question that has been bugging me. What is known about the group that was housing Grogu before the Mandalorian took custody of him? I'm wondering if these were "good" guys that were protecting Grogu from the bounty hunters knowing fragments of the Empire were after him. If these were "bad" guys, why hadn't they simply sold Grogu to the highest bidder. He appeared heathy when we first see him so I assume he was getting fed and taken care of while there and the impression given is that he had been there for years. Seeing as the Mandelorian killed most if not all of those in that encampment in the process of recovering Grogu I'm not certain what I am supposed to be thinking about this group. Starting your story by having the main character killing a bunch of good guys doesn't sound like a smart move but in hindsight their motives appear to have been to protect Grogu. Thoughts? Has this been discussed elsewhere? I know I'm slow to the game here. Thanks, Carl
  3. Hello, I saw where you pointed someone to this thread for proposed model kit projects. Here is a subject that might be fun. Granted there isn't much reference material but this may be an opportunity to flesh out the details by "Moscatofication" and may be fun, and I'm curious what you'd do with it. I'm thinking of the 2007 Legioss with or without the Dread2. The Dread2 appears to be a reimagined Tread. Not certain what to make of the Dread1 in the below image as it appears to show it connected to the 1984 Legioss but doesn't look anything like the Tread (Anyone able to translate the text on this page?) A set of the P-51 Mustang, the F-18 Hornet, the 1984 Legioss, and the 2007 Legioss all in the same scale would also make for a very interesting display piece. Just throwing out some ideas. Carl
  4. I'm in for 2. And a small fleet of Alpha/Beta combos. Just sent payment. Thanks Shawn for the heads up. Carl P.S. Will the Alpha/Beta combo be separable? Available in any other modes than fighter? The combo gerwalk mode would be nice and may be the only other mode doable at this scale. Not sure... Can it be attached to the Horizont like this with the box over the cockpit?
  5. I suspect this money isn't coming from Chronicle Collectibles. Partial.ly was acting as a middle man via collecting these payments. I suspect they have some insurance that covers situations like this. So this is likely them distributing an insurance payout. If people didn't get their money back people would likely be trying to sue them because suing Chronicle Collectibles wouldn't have likely been very fruitful. At least that is what I think is happening here. Carl
  6. I contacted my CC company and was informed I needed to contest each transaction separately. From my login account I could only see 5 statements so could only see a fraction of the transactions I needed to context. In my case there were a total of 14 transactions so I needed to follow a procedure of requesting they upload the older statements first. I did that Tuesday and they have just now shown up. However, even better news, just 20 minutes ago I got 14 emails from Partial.ly just like this one: So it looks like I'm getting 100% of my money back without even contesting via my credit card. I hope this is true for those that didn't use PP or a CC as well. Carl
  7. Looks like I was wrong... Chronicle Collectibles may very well be in the business of screwing over their customers. http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=171649&page=47
  8. I did. But I'm not in panic mode yet. Chronicle Collectibles I don't believe is in the business of screwing over their customers. I'm rather sure this will get sorted out. It is just right now I have no idea what is going on. I'm guessing the entire project was cancelled but if so I'd expect some sort of announcement.
  9. Did anyone here order the Chronicle Collectibles Enterprise-D? I did back when they reduced the price to $1701. https://chroniclecollectibles.com/products/enterprise-d I've been making monthly payments to a Partial.ly Payment Plan since. The 13th of 16 payments was just pulled successfully back on 9/11/2020. And yesterday I got an email from noreply@partial.ly that simply stated: I immediately called Chronicle Collectibles and left a voice mail. I also emailed them. So far no reply. Today I emailed Partial.ly. No idea what is going on at the moment. Did they cancel their Enterprise-D? If so I cannot find anything that announces that. There have been zero issue with the 13 payments to date so not sure if its just my payment plan that was cancelled or everyone's. If the project was cancelled, I've seen no mention of how I get the funds back that have already been collected. Anyone here know anything? Thanks, Carl
  10. Based on what you say above about Star Trek: New Voyages and Star Trek Continues, it must have been something to do with the fundraising specifically. Walter Koenig, George Takei, Grace Lee Whintey, Denise Crosby, John de Lancie, Michael Dorn, Jason Isaacs, and Marina Sirtis are all professional actors and I fail to see how this doesn't really blur the distinction between fan-film and professional production, especially so when you have the same actor playing the same part. I don't know how Star Trek: New Voyages or Star Trek Continues is funded, I haven't looked into it. Maybe these actors and actresses freely volunteered their time, I'm not sure. Just looked here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_New_Voyages and here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek_Continues and I see Star Trek Continues also used crowdfunding to pay for production. Still not sure how Star Trek: New Voyages was funded or exactly what the line was that Axanar crossed. Digging a bit further I see Star Trek Continues raised $539,661 across 3 crowdfunding campaigns and from what I can see Anaxar raised $1,785,181 across 4 crowdfunding campaigns. I'm tempted to guess that the "line" Anaxar crossed was this transition from 6 to 7 digits in Star Trek fan capital. Carl
  11. I watched this yesterday and missed the SDF-1 so I was just about to ask if this was a joke. But I thought I better give it a second view before potentially making myself look too stupid and I spotted it. I love the way he sneaks it in. Carl
  12. Is it safe to assume we crossed the 30 kit threshold back on the 26th? Just curious if there was an official announcement that this project was a "go". Carl
  13. I'm in for one. For the in-scale fighter are we talking about the Legioss/Tread combo? Three of those I guess could also be considered 6 aircraft so I wasn't sure. Thanks, Carl
  14. Is this the image you are looking at? If so the head-fin appears to be completely blocked by the front landing gear, so I'm not sure how you can tell if the fin is dragging or not. If there is another image you are referring to, could you post it or a link? Thanks, Carl
