On this episode we talk about the announced animated Batman movie starring Adam West and Burt Ward, Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi taking the reigns of Godzilla 2016, the X-Files limited series being confirmed, Sony’s bizarre desire to make a Robotech film franchise, Gen Con’s reactions to Indiana’s RFRA, and an awesome little convention in DeKalb called Karoshi Con.
And we have a whole bunch of new listener mail to boot!
We also talk about the changes coming to Marvel comics with different characters taking up the helms of Thor and Captain America, Arrowverse casting, Harmony Gold not being awful for once, Homestar Runner coming back from the dead, and the expansion of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
Watching Robotech Academy fail has been the most entertaining thing I’ve seen Harmony Gold do in so long. That said, it looks like they’re finally willing to release the “hostages.”
That’s right, while it will be called the Robotech Classic Collection, the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross will finally be back in print for US audiences. And the price point is incredibly low. (So much so I almost regret shelling out as much as I did for my Animeigo Macross set.)
Since HG seems to want to sell this on the basis of “compare and contrast with the original,” lets hope that Southern Cross and Mospeada will get the same treatment.
So yeah. Harmony Gold news and I’m not pissed. This is nice.
