Hahahaha... no.

Macross forever.


This is a weird idea. Harmony Gold are way past their glory days, but you'd assume they could still raise the funds to do this themselves. Asking the fans to do it seems a bit cheap of them. If they can't get the interest to do it privately, maybe it's because ROBOTECH's time has passed?

The miniatures wargame Kickstarter at least made more sense because it was by a small company and was a massive initial outlay. This, not so much.


Last I knew Harmony Gold was little more than a guy in an office that existed to ensure no one could make anything off of Macross but them.

Not to throw sulfur on the fire, but the miniatures game is actually riddled with issues right now - including the guys running it asking their backers permission to sell material at Gencon before the backers have received their rewards and initial shipments. They're claiming numerous delays and difficulties, and I haven't been following along enough to say one way or the other whether or not I believe them... But I do wonder where the 1.4 million they raised went (out of an initial 70K goal) and how it was used (or not) in terms of being used to handle such eventualities.


The last I heard of harmony gold was me laughing at them as I bought the Shadow Chronicles thingamabob for 5 bucks at a con.
