  1. It's true... a structural frame in something I once worked on got the official acronym WTF. I can't say much but the Program Office snickered a lot that they were able to get away with that. That said almost no one actually used the acronym in the end.
  2. I wasn't aware of a tally. I'm having trouble parsing some of the unknowns in my part there (what's the 7?) If it helps though I saw Plus, Frontier 1, and Frontier 2 all in Lancaster, CA. Same theater even which was a Cinemark if that matters.
  3. This is basically the same experience I had. Better sound but also the annoying bass vibrations from adjacent theater. Weird, that. But yeah I was happy overall, and I look forward to what's next. I can see them doing both Delta movies in this same way perhaps, which is really only good in that I can finally see the second if that happens.
  4. I agree that if the final song of Wings of Goodbye doesn't have proper audio it will severely hamper the effect it has. That said... While I don't have to stomach Fathom's reputation in other things, if they are the ones bringing Macross events to western term, then I will continue going to these releases because I'm doing this to support the product and tell Big West I'm paying attention. I want official blu-ray releases in the west among other things. I have seen these movies before and my copies, such as they are, are better in audio as I can control it. I will watch them again in the future and enjoy them. But last night and 2 weeks from now will not be a waste for me regardless.
  5. My experience was overall positive but I felt the audio was off too. It sounded alright and I could hear everything but it was kinda low... Which was ok except during the songs and concert scenes which really benefit from the volume being pumped up. So a lot of the music didn't have the normal punch. I spoke to a few friends in other areas that said it was the same for them.
  6. That actually is what I was thinking. We know for a fact the Protoculture were not exactly the most cohesive unit as far as a single civilization goes.. in fact all the problems in the galaxy are the direct result of them not being able to get along with each other. The Zentradi, the Fold Evils leading to the Protodeviln invasion, the setups to ensure later species didn't make their mistakes, attempts to psychically unify everyone into a hive mind to repair that discord.. it all tracks with them just not being one group of people but.. a bunch of people who just couldn't agree on basically anything.
  7. Well others can get A VF-24, but it will be a monkey model of the Earth version still. And no one is getting a 27 cause one it was made illegally, and two it's host fleet collapsed from corporate conspiracy and an aircraft carrier to the face.
  8. I as I was before and always am for event movies, have to drive 70 miles to see it but will gladly do that trip for something important to me such as this.
  9. I actually kinda want it in July cause I don't have a car that can travel to the theater I'd see it at until then lol. I can find a way probably.
  10. They say June but Fathom still has nothing. That is either a mistake or concerning.
  11. Yeah the arms and the wing tabs mainly. The arms required getting the bicep panel set just right and it can be annoying. The wings required actually filing the tabs down a bit to fit. On the whole not terrible, and they are fixable, but the issue is no customer should have to deal with it at all. I'm more relaxed than others on it but I get the issue.
  12. I'm not really the especially impatient honestly. I just want to keep LP accountable cause they didn't move on Hayate for me until I actually bugged them lol. That's why I think they need to be poked, cause they do have some issues as has been stated. If I wanted it sooner, I wouldn't have gone with them, I'd have braved the madness and likely done HLJ or something. I'm willing to wait a bit.
  13. I posted about it last page. I poked them last week (they tend to work faster when you bug them I find) and they said it should be shipping after Golden Week which should have just finished. We'll see if they hold to that. I certainly will keep on them.
  14. I poked Luna Park (it worked before lol) and they told me it would be shipping after Golden Week. Admittedly they didn't say when after, but it's something.
  15. Good write up there @no3Ljm. I think at this point I'm more interested in ordering US just to support having the option, I didn't get the 25, but I do want to get Max's 29. I can live with waiting a bit I think, and the upcharge is not nothing but I think I can eat it for the purpose of being able to get it Domestic.
  16. The wait is fine for me.. I can balance out purchases better lol. Also I still need a new shelf.
  17. I only have the YF-29B so I'm not collecting 29s for sure.. don't even have one with supers.. but also Max is my favorite. This is best of both worlds. I don't really want to play the PO madness game anymore but this one looks like it has domestic options anyway so I'm more than happy to see how that goes.
  18. That's not too bad, I can wait a few days after the 28th to see where Max shows.
  19. How long did it take for the WW-25 to show up on US sites after the Japanese preorder?
  20. While I know LP was really late for a lot of people, they were timely for me on Hayate.. but I did also pester them right around release date to see if they were gonna ship so that may have helped lol.
  21. We actually don't know. Far as it seems (I haven't seen the movie yet) Milia is not in Absolute Live alongside Max and Exsedol, so no reason existed to have a VF for her.
  22. Ya know, I've been thinking on this and... Max being in Xaos just reeks of "Oh you dragged him into your mess? What did you have on him? Were you threatening to tell people Mirage wasn't good enough? Did you kidnap someone?" Then I realized... NUNS, even before the reorg.. was just giving Max new VFs anyway when he asked cause,.. well.. it's Max! How do we know he didn't get the 29 from them (we don't know when he retired from Battle 7..) and just take it with him? Milia kept her SW1 VF-1J after all... Though with their fame, skill, and apparently an entire flight school... Max might just be rich and funded it himself. Maybe he is keeping his branch of Xaos afloat lol.
  23. I have the Percival but... I want this more cause Max is my favorite. Also supers. The fact it's easier to get is a sign clearly lol. Might consider selling the 29B or something though. We'll see.
  24. I guess the beauty is there will be time to shop around and pick a place since there is no preorder hard date... it's almost unreal.
  25. I wasn't following how many places you could get the last MMW figure so I'm not sure what all the options will be but I'm happy to see there will be more. I might not have considered this otherwise. I really still shouldn't but.. it's Max...
