It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Locoman : (18 July 2019 - 05:11 PM)

isn't that just Modern Family

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

all these clowns are making me run really fast.

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

Yeah, the DX Chogokin Draken III I got was at an actual Bandai Tamashii Nations store in Akihabara. I almost passed on it, as I did not know the character or anything. They had the others on display, but none for sale.

Glad I did get it though, it is a great design.

I didn't like Zero.  I'd like to see it again, because I remember everyone being blown away by it (Macross Plus levels of awesome) and finding it highly, highly disappointing.  I do like how it ties in with Frontier.

 

Frontier is a love it / hate it thing.  It's my favorite Macross series (and that says a lot given how much Fire Bomber I listen to).  It's very much Macross - almost to excess - but I think that's part of the charm.  You have to get through the early parts, imo, for the later half of the series to really hit home. 

 

Macross 7 is a lot of stock footage, some really great designs, and the best music you'll ever get in a Macross project.

Don't forget the drums in Veffidas' VF-17.  Although I think Rey did most of the piloting.

 

I'm not tech savvy enough to have figured out how to watch Delta. I'm holding out hope that it'll get released once HGUSA loses the license.  Figure we'll get DYRL, a Zero & Macross Plus reissue, and then Frontier to start. Then hopefully Delta and (*crosses fingers*) 7.

Actually, all the Delta Blu-Rays have English subtitles, done by professional Anglophone fans who moved to Japan. You'll have to shell out a lot of money, but you can easily support Macross as a foreign fan in this regard.

Should have started with "The Galaxy is Calling Me" and then gone into Macross 7.  The first 12 or so episodes of 7 are awful.  Space vampire mystery adventure.  With stock footage. 

 

Transformations in Frontier are just like that.  Really been that way since Macross Plus and DYRL.  They're just not doing the slow, super detailed lookitexpensive shots.

 

Although, to be fair, Battle Frontier and Macross Quarter are smaller ships than the SDF-01*, and were designed to transform from the start, unlike the original Macross.

Received the DX Chogokin VF-1J today.  It’s really nice.  I do wish that the bar that connects his legs to his upper body wouldn’t come unclipped so easily.


I might get rid of it.  As while Hikaru is my favorite Macross character overall, his VF-1J Valkyrie is my least favorite Valkyrie.

 

Any of the VF-1S, the other VF-1J’s, or even most of the VF-1A’s are all preferred by me.

My wife got me the premium finish Arcadia SDF-1 for Christmas, and it is hugging amazing.

Along with that, I finally finished my Bandai "custom reissue" Hikaru Strike Valkyrie. Reissue VF-1A with modified numbers, vintage VF-1S head dyed to matchvthe weirdly nice pinky white plastic of the reissue, and vintage Strike armor. Arms were shaved down to accomodate the vintage armor.

So I've been browsing Ebay a lot lately for older Anime that for one reason or another I never picked up on DVD, 2 of those are Macross 2 and Macross Plus, Should the Harmony gold deal expire the floodgates of Mcross titles flooding the west will be open. So I'm wondering if I shouldn't wait to see if we get better editions down the line instead of buying used DVD's?

I wouldnt hold my breath on macross 2. Its been pretty much disowned by everyone if i remember right. But its still got macross in the name so its possible

Macross plus is the exact opposite of course. If you MUST have it now, buy standard dvd and pick up the blu ray when/if hg looses the license

Tried to get the DX VF-1S DYRL Hikaru Valkyrie when it went live 3 AM Monday morning.  Ended up paying about 5000 yen more than retail, but at least I have it.

 

I must have gotten extremely lucky with Hikaru's TV VF-1J, as I got that at Amazon Japan no problem (I probably woke up when it was available).  Max's TV VF-1A, I didn't even know was coming until it had already sold out.  :doh

And today in "Dave finds out things after it's faaaaaaar too late..."

I had no idea that ADV put out a fun of Macross in the mid 2000's, let alone that Mari Ijiima reprises her role as Minmei in English.

Dang, I have the Animeigo DVD's but I totally would have gotten that.

Naturally it's far too late to find it on the net at a reasonable price.

Guess my only hope is to bank on harmony gold tanking in 2021, and hope whoever rescue licences the show puts it on Blu Ray and includes the dub.
