  1. Frontier is, for the most part, over, so, this is now a general news thread. Old thread Tired of posting a new thread for 1 news item? Got a scoop? Post it here. No discussions.
  2. Not a huge fan of Robotech, but he did manage to bring Macross to the west for the US kids of the 80s.
  3. https://www.freightwaves.com/news/us-to-leave-global-postal-union-next-month Note for U.S. collectors/buyers, the U.S. is planning to leave UPU by next month if there's no agreement made with UPU before the deadline. This means possible increase on shipping done through USPS. Not sure if items coming from Japan is being subsidized by U.S. so the rate from Japan might be affected or not. However, items from China (which is basically the main target for this action), will definitely be affected as shipping from China is heavily subsidized by the U.S. (that's why it's common to see free or dirt cheap shipping rates from China). If you're using a courier (like DHL, Fedex, UPS), their rates will most probably not be affected, unless of course they take advantage of the situation and also increase their rates. So don't be surprised in case you see some increase in shipping in the coming months. P.S. Not sure the appropriate forum to post this (while also making it more visible to members), so mods feel free to move it if needed. Thanks

  5. Not scoop things, but trivial news about Macross and some related things.
  6. Ever more, sci-fi is becoming sci-fact. The European Space Agency have successfully put the Philae lander on the surface of the 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko Comet after 10+ years of travel aboard the Rosetta spacecraft. It's an amazing accomplishment for them, and ultimately mankind, certainly worthy of discussion, as well as contemplation of what me might learn, and where the future lies for further exploration.
  7. Up to now, the main thing from the Macross series to be defictionalized was, as far as I understand, Vocaloid (especially in concert - the holographic concerts were probably inspired by Macross Plus). But now, it looks like someone is using a pop star in battle.In real life. Not sure they even watched Macross (or Robotech), but the approach seems to be the very same (though they use recordings, so is this the Macross II "Minmay attack"?). http://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/oct/29/britney-spears-navy-scare-somali-pirates === Britney Spears has emerged as an unlikely figurehead in the fight against Somali pirates. According to reports, Britney's hits, including Oops! I Did It Again and Baby One More Time, are being employed by British naval officers in an attempt to scare off pirates along the east coast of Africa. Perhaps nothing else not guns, not harpoons is quite as intimidating as the sound of Ms Spears singing "Ooh baby baby!" Merchant naval officer Rachel Owens explained the tactics to Metro: "Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most. These guys can't stand western culture or music, making Britney's hits perfect. As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can." == I can just imagine pirates angrily spitting out "deculchaa"...
