      Looks good with the beefed up shoulders and legs. It's very nice to see that DP9 is so open to feedback from us backers.

      IDjesse.... you and me both brother... if DP9 had that licence then all our dreams and hopes would have came true with that game.. could you imagine a heavy gear clone of Robotech tactics. it would be awesome... they would just have to deal with transforming mecha in the rules. and flight combat... not a big deal for them...

      well either November or December would make me happy!...its like an early Yule present that I forgot I paid for a year before.. lol.. I'm new to the game but with two box sets I will have a good assortment to build and play around with. everything looks so very good... and if the plastics come out as good as the renders i'll be a VERY happy camper!

      @ Adam. Once we have the plastic injection molds made and the first plastic sprues popped, we'll be able to calculate the exact weight of each Backer Reward package. Then we'll contact all our international Backers with the exact cost to get paid.

      Much better look (and I really didn't mind the previous ones tbh), thanks guys

      These new 3D frames look much better! Thank you for listening to the community.

      About the delivery date, it doesn't really come as a surprise. Very few KS I backed deliver on time, the ones that do are either very limited in scope or major companies using KS as a pre-order system.
      If the quality is good, I don't mind waiting a little longer.

      Do we know how much and when, Australian's have to pay the extra for shipping costs?

      @ldjessee: I'm actually glad they don't have that license (over Palladium), given how Harmony Gold, which holds the rights in North America, has meddled in the process.

      While I'm optimistic about hitting the delivery date, I'll be neither shocked nor disappointed if the KS goes into overtime. Most of them do. I'd much rather have extra time spend getting the models right than stuff be pushed too hard into production. It's called 'estimated' delivery for a reason, right? :D

      This right here. Thanks for taking a serious look at something your fans (ie, your best customers) told you about. Even if you decided no changes could be made for the molding process, this is awesome. I so WISH that DP9 had the Robotech license...

      I aint even worried. Keep up the great work!
