Robotech kickstarter is over 1,442,312 total

Postby griffen127 » Mon Apr 22, 2013 10:39 pm

I don't know many people that are old gamers that don't know about Robotech. If you don't know about it it's from the 80s. Now they are running a kickstarter. It funded in under 3 hours. I saw some of the figs and played the demo 4 times at Acon it's pretty cool. Take a look u may like what u see. Use the destdroid as crisis suits ;)
Over 500k! Wow and still 50% of the time left. That's pretty cool lots of free add ons!

The Destroids aren't crisis suit enough for me. Although the Spartan set with the giant missile bod arms would be great as a High-Yield Missile System upgrade idea.

It got fully funded in 3 hours. After just over a week it's all ready past 385k. The destroids are close to the right scale for battletech. I'll be a happy with a different game for a while and the figs looked pretty cool at the con

I've been debating on whether I want to put money into this one myself.

Rob, I'm all ready in it for the showdown and a bit extra. Kinda thinking of going up enough to get the daedalus attack pack as well. I'm planning to magnetize the defenders and tomohawks to swap them out unless the hip joints re nice and snug like the 40k dread arms.

if this gets to the point where the resin SDF-1 Macross becomes available, I'll be swapping my 4 armored valk upgrade for that.

Well it did better than I thought it would do. However, it fell a little bit short of my dreams. So all and all I am super happy with the start of this game.

Beware the OGRE/Bones curse. Too much success.
