Re: TftF Discussion Thread #4

That may be hypocritical of me to say right after returning from an unannounced multi-year absence that contributed to hobbling this RPG at the 11th hour, and I know I dropped the ball in that respect, but it's the truth. Looks like you guys have already discussed some way of concluding the RPG ove...

Re: TftF Discussion Thread #4

I'm gonna call hits on your... face? Butt? Mother? Pick whichever offends you the least.

Now all we need to do is coax Fritz from the Skype nether region, and summon Wedge from the depths of Canada and we'll have a full fledged reunion tour (That will end in a crime spree/mass suicide).

Re: Interest Check

I'll just throw my name in as being not really interested in the OYW setting, but for a different reason: I've done pretty much everything within that setting. :mrgreen: Earth stuff on every continent?

Re: Star Wars Episode VII

I saw it at midnight last night, and as another huge Star Wars fan, I felt the complete opposite: I thought it was absolutely amazing. I'll hold off on anything substantial, even in spoiler tags, but I'll just say yay X-Wings. :mrgreen:

Re: Model kits similar to the Tin Cod, Saberfish,...

1/144 Resin kits of both the Saberfish and TIN Cod were made by B-Club a decade ago and haven't been reproduced since. You'll note the Saberfish kit was produced as "Shaver Fish" due to Engrish, so it was difficult to find even then because of that spelling. I actually have the Saberfish kit, and it...

Re: Zaku Sub-Weapons

I wonder about the Doms. Black Tri-Stars aside, have we ever seen them operate alone? That is in a Dom only group without Zakus or Goufs? I know we have for Rick Doms, but I'm not so sure about their ground originators. If not, then it's possible that the Dom was by the time it was actually deploye...

Re: Personal Reviews on these sites? (Trustworthy Sites)

they do carry P-Bandai stuff but expect to pay through the nose and once their stock is gone, that's it. For web-exclusive stuff, that seems to be the case with everybody. I don't think that stuff gets more than one production run very often... Anyway, call this a second recommendation for HLJ. The...

Re: What books are you reading?

The Third World War and The Third World War: The Untold Story were the first books to take on the hypothetical NATO-WTO showdown in a dramatic format. As always where the European Allies are concerned, the Brits did it first and then the Yanks did it better. :) But without that book's success I am ...

Re: Rare High Grade Gunplas

I wouldn't call the early 90's Victory kits rare at all, seeing how they (Like many kits from the 80's and early 90's) get re-released every year or so and can be purchased very easily (And cheaply) on the internet. Hell, that 1/100 Victory is only ten bucks.

Re: Turn-A Gundam getting a US DVD release!

The Japanese Official Turn A page uses Rolan: http://www.turn-a-gundam.net/character/01.html But the English Gundam games have used Loran I believe. AFAIK they did. Loran has been the only way I can recall its been translated into English for over a decade, going back to the old Official Guide book...

Re: Javelin's Sucessor

Most likely something based on the Victory. Then again the Federation is not going to last for much longer after the end of Victory. For what it's worth, if the RGM-147 number is accurate (Gundam Wiki grain of salt and all), that would mean it's development started in UC 0147, which is before the L...

It's worth remembering that warships almost always have missile launchers, and even in the later UC world whe...

Well, like the ships, the 1/550 scale kits do also come with 1/550 scale MS as well. Just glancing at the pictures on HLJ, unlike the figures with the 1/1200 ships which are just a single solid piece of plastic that aren't pose-able at all, the ones with the 1/550 do seem to be able to move their ar...
