  1. Consume whatever you like and all that, but for those out there who are deliberately breaking international laws, just remember one day, the Chogokins are coming home to roost. KO and 3rd Party makers, welcome to 2020! Investigation to raid and arrests took less than three months. "The knockoff toys, sold on the Internet under another name, differed from authentic ones only in size, according to police." Yeah, "BlackAces Mac Z 1/72 Tomcat “Shin Special” Custom Diecast Metal Collectors’ Model" ain't gonna fly. https://www.shine.cn/news/metro/2007232766/ https://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/shanghai-police-crack-down-on-transformers-kos-raiding-factory-and-arresting-people/45048/
  2. Actually that was done by Black Aces/Noel (individual/amateur kit circle) and not by Calibre Wings, it's was also a one-day license which is not a direct interaction with the rights holder (BW), they are arranged on behalf of the event organizers.
  3. If the recent "news" doesn't deal directly with BIG WEST, then we probably won't. Well... At least not for the moment.
  4. Before I go reading through all the replies, which are you watching, the official releases that included Eng subs, or by-ear fan subs?
  5. Akiba is pretty much Bandai Tamashi HQ, since they are working really close with Sofmap on releases and promotional displays. Getting one on release day shouldn't be a problem. Plus there are still other shops like Yellow Sub, Akiba X, and Tokyo Anime Center (nobody ever checks there). The Hikaru Vf-1J lasted about a week in shops before it sold out.
  6. Yep. That is what they say around these parts. Same reason he did both the Hi-Metal R box art and was interviewed for the booklet in the Mac II blu-ray.
  7. Mechanical designers didn't have input on the direction of the plot of II. Fun Fact: In Japan everybody refers to it as Obari's Macross (and he didn't work on any of the Gundam shows you had mentioned.
  8. Wong again. Seen? Seen where? In person? On TV? While you visited or lived in Japan? It happens behind closed doors in front of other girls and women (onsen), and in front of others from time to time as well. It depends on the group of girls or women. It has happened in front of me a few times, the first two times it was jaw-drapping, then it was just something some people do. Even drunk JP guys get too touchy with guys sometimes, your blocking form needs to be quick.
  9. Tochiro and myself had first hand experience with what you're having a hard time believing. Even with the official English subtitles Kawamori was in the loop and signed off on things. And it wasn't just on the scripts being a native translation. He made sure that the nuance of dialogs and song lyrics were clear. I also spoke about it at last years SDcon panel.
  10. I have no idea what that's all about. Maybe he's talking about Gubaba.
  11. Yep, but that one isn't as cheap, yet. They have it at 18,000. I have no idea. The VF-2SS probably sold well enough compared to their other toys lines. Last week's Miyazawa Mokei they only had Super Robot stuff on display, not ever the Legioss what there.
  12. There is a shop in Akihabara that has dropped the Nexx to 15,000 yen. If anyone is interested in getting one PM me.
  13. No Legioss displayed at today's Miyazawa Mokei.
  14. This is probably the best shot of it online (thank you Egan Loo).
  15. Too bad there's no time in the production schedule to work on the extra release content.
