Holy crap.

Is the Battle Pod 1:100 scale, or (hopefully) 1:60 scale?

Sad (but not surprising) news about Shoguns, but I hope they come up with something cool. Dave should be hired to design one!

The Glaug is 1:100 like their Regults. Hopefully they won't be on a slow boat from China.

The person who sculpted the Zentradi stuff revealed on Macrossworld that he's no longer with Toynami.

These were revealed at

These were revealed at Macrosscon in 2010, I have the gallery up but I never wrote the review as my computer died right before the event.

Here is a photo of the Armored Battroid that was also prototyped:

I'm sure Robotech.com will send an email when it's ready for release as they did with the battlepod.

Daisuke is really a top sculptor and designer I swear every toy maker should be using him for their product designs.

I'll probably grab two Officer's pods for some Macrossey action, but they'll be too small to go with the large-scale Battletech stuff. I think a 1/60 Glaug would be too big for CBT, but the 1/72 might actually fit alright next to the Armorcast kits and their ilk,.

Shogun Warriors

What a silly use of the Shogun Warriors license. That's just so weak. I hope they all end up buried in a landfill when no one buys them. I'm just a little bitter.

Robotech Shogun????????

So you go ahead and make a shogun jumbo bender because you already have the license. All right. I get it. Synergy and all that.

It didn't occur to anyone to make jumbo valkyries and mecha? Those are the machinders EVERYONE wishes they made back in the day.

If Toei was being dicky, I'm sure Takara isn't being too picky with their DOUGRAM license. How about that?

I would KILL for a Valkyrie (veritech) or any DOUGRAM JUMBO.

But the robotech thing just mystifies me. Maybe Toynami's license is limited to size.... oh- wait a minute, they released 5 foot tall valkyries like seven years ago. They couldn't scale those down to 2 feet tall?

I'm just a LOT bitter.
