  1. Yes, I have high hopes for this one!

  2. Finally I can start using Macross designs in Battletech again! Woohoo!

  3. Wasn't Palladium approached about a Robotech game like last year by a guy with pretty amazing prototype models? Didn't they turn him down claiming there was no interest in a Robotech miniatures game?

  4. Man I'm all over this if it pans out. Love Robotech, especially macross.

  5. yea, keep the KS pricing reasonable and I am in! I loved the game when I was a kid growing up. I would race home to watch it, to see it as a mini game would be great!

    Would we see expansions like Southern Cross vs Masters? Invid vs REF?

  6. I hope they are not messing this up, it will be a hard decision between this one and the Mecha Front 15mm game from Paulson Games.

    @ Janus: I guess they got yelled at quite a bit for that decision and c hanged their mind.

    @ styx: That will depend on the success of the new game.
