Oh, got a link? I was just thinking there should be some new stuff from SDCC.
How do we not have a Steven Universe thread?!

Worst part about this is that we are just left hanging. Wondering when SU will come on again. I'm hoping they're not going to make us wait until the fall before the new episodes start.

Heh heh heh...so, I decided to look up more Captain Harlock info, since my first-hand knowledge of the series is very spotty (I've seen a couple of dubs, but never the original series).
The main villains in the original series, the Mazones (yes, like Amazons) were plant-based aliens who were asexual but chose to present as humanoid females. They had been on Earth in the distant past, were responsible for many ancient ruins, and were back to conquer Earth.

Check out the movie sometime, it's about the only thing I've ever seen reach Bay levels of coherence.
The crowd noise in the "Stronger than You" music video is an odd choice - I get it but it's musically weird; think I'm still preferring either the show version or the Sapphire cover. (The artist, not the Gem.)
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

The first Harlock I ever saw was the one with all the flashbacks to WWII-era previous lives or something.

Picked up but have not yet opened the first wave McFarlane not-Minimate figures (Garnet, Pearl, Peridot) at Walmart. Rose is a larger set, and wasn't on the shelf, but they're in the middle of Fall reset.
Also, saw a really good Rose cosplay at the local con on Saturday, but wasn't able to get a picture due to crowd motion.

Update: I built the Garnet set. The brick quality is at the really low end of the scale, like Best Lock or worse. Garnet's legs fall off really easily, and rather than mold pieces in all the right colors, they simply painted several pieces. The stickers are slightly larger than the pieces they go on, except for the big game screen sticker, which binds three pieces together. (I tried carefully slicing it so the bricks could be separated, but the paper used for the stickers is low quality and irregularities make it cut jaggedly even with a very sharp blade.)
Pretty disappointing, all told.
