I started watching Robotech over the weekend, Matt’s not so subtle hint of Micronians had me thinking...
A few drops back he had hinted he was working on updating some old characters. So I’ll drop a few quotes for example.
The Glyan was designed with many of Rechlen's aesthetics interwoven throughout the body forms.
The original plan was to eventually make a new set of head/torso/pelvis parts that would combine with the Glyan to make the individual Space Trappers. We even hid many of their Rigs within the Robo Force Kits, which we explored a bit, thematically, with the VRD story arcs.
Most likely we will follow the original plan outlined above (parts have been worked on), but there is also something neat about the original smaller scale.
It's a work in progress, for certain!
Remember so far all Matt has admitted to was that the Roboforce Gendrone will be onboard this drop.
the Gendrones will have some representation in a special form of the Robo Force-born GF Defender.
And then this
2019 will bring back some molds that have been taking a little vacation, as well as see the introduction of a number of new ones.
And one more
I've been sculpting on multiple projects, but a couple in particular are really in focus now. One is maybe something you'd expect, and the other, maybe not so much.
With that, and the obvious homage of Robotech, where the Villser will be the giant Aliens (Zentraedi)...
the Villser for this round might make long time fans of big alien bad guys that fight transforming planes piloted by Micronians smile.
...and presumably the Glyans will play the Micronians, what head are we all forgetting got retired back in 2016? And bears a striking resemblance to the Micronian’s helmet?
I think we are seeing the return of the Neo Sincroid
head, and possibly parts that could lead to Rechlen and Aves...call me crazy, but it came to me in a dream.
