Hey Josh it's funny you

Hey Josh it's funny you mention piracy and the PSP cuz that console is infamous for its ability to run everything from cracked versions of its own games to Commodore 64 stuff!

I'm kind of irate they're including the ACV robot because it seems like a boring choice. It reminds me of when the makers of Armored Core did the ACE games and threw in a robot from their own forgotten X-Box mech game "Murakumo."

With regards to the two different VF-19s, the thing is there's enough differences between the Plus one and the 7 ones that combined with the five year gap in when the toys came out, Yamato can justify redoing the Plus one. Like with the legs alone being completely different on the Plus one it would require extensive remolding that affects everything else.

I want the rest of Sound Force too! In the past they were kind of leery of doing Mylene's Valkyrie because it has no repaint potential but with the VF-4G being a success who knows.

The name of the company Don

The name of the company Don Figueroa worked for was Dreamwave Productions. I recall them going bankrupt under shady circumstances and that the founder used ghost artists but credited himself. I am very interested in the Armarauders line because it has the Centurions influence mentioned in the video, but also because the pilots remind me of Starcom.

New Equipment

I could definitely notice a difference on Josh's end in both audio and video.
Josh's eyes have never been so piercing!

Robotech: The Movie

I took a shot.

Rick - Zach Efron (I think teenage girls like him?)
Lisa - Jennifer Lawrence (She's in everything else; why not?)
Minmay - Selina Gomez (An actual "singer.")
Roy - Ryan Gosling (or Denis Leary 20 years ago)
Claudia - Rosario Dawson (or Halle Berry 10 years ago)
Max - Daniel Radcliffe (Okay, so I couldn't think of anyone else with glasses.)
Ben - Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation doofus)
Miriya - Laura Vandervoort (Has played an alien babe before.)
Gloval - Jim Leyland (Baseball manager who smokes like a chimney.)

Definitely need a Macross 7

Definitely need a Macross 7 Millia pink valkyrie. She and her valk were the best thing about the show for me. I liked the spirit of the show, but the execution was a bit childish. The only reason I got the Fire Valkyrie with Sound Boosters is to have a good set in the off chance Millia's valkyrie is released. With all the other Yamato Macross 7 valks releases, I would bet Millia is up next.

Macross Movie cast? Well Tom

Macross Movie cast? Well Tom Cruise would at least be the right height for Hikaru! But I would take Toby Maguire over him.

Guys, take a shot every time

Guys, take a shot every time a big news site does not use some random unrelated Macross pic for a Robotech article.

You'll be able to drive home sober.
