$280,000! Beware the MONSTER!

Wow! We are blowing through the stretch goals. Every pledge of Battle Cry, Gloval's Report, and 2x Showdown will receive a BONUS Glaug Officer's Battlepod and a BONUS Reconnaissance Battlepod!

$325,000 Stretch Goal

Mk.II MONSTER

A big stretch goal deserves a big model, and there are few bigger than the UEDF Mk.II Monster. Once we reach $325,000 the Monster will become a reality!

The Mk.II Monster is available as an optional Purchase Add-on for $40.

DAEDALUS ATTACK ADD-ON

Love Destroids? Love MONSTERS? Have you always wanted to punch through a Zentraedi Battleship and unleash wholesale destruction? Of course you have! The Daedalus Attack Add-on is for anyone who wants to recreate this seminal moment from the anime on the battlefield.

The Daedalus Attack Add-on includes 3x Mk.II Monsters, and 8x Destroids that can be built as Tomahawks or Defenders. We're sure that all of you mathematicians have already noticed that you get an extra discount thrown in on top of all the mecha goodness!

We're pretty sure this massive game piece is going to be hugely popular, so we're looking to blow through the stretch goal in record time!

RECKLESS PLEDGE

You asked for it, so we're making it! The front page will feature the Reckless Pledge level. Featuring 4x Battle Cry contents for $520. That's one big battle! The pledge will be going live tonight. You can use the blue "Manage My Pledge" button to upgrade to Reckless.

      Big Zentraedi model would be Cyclops recon pod. Could be referred to as a BUFF.

      Hello M.A.C. II...goodbye bank account...

    3. Pineapple Steak on April 23, 2013

      I'm struggling to think of what's left. The Quadrono (Female Power Armor), the Scout Ship, maybe... Zentraedi Foot Troops? After that, it's mostly the realm of capital ships...

      Honestly, I'm looking forward to any expansions. Southern Cross, Next Generation, Sentinels, Shadow Chronicles, Live-Action Movie, etc...

      @John Harrison: thanks for that I thought I had gone through the FAQ's but apparently I fail at checking properly, and in related news time to up my pledge :-)

      Also a possibility for a Zentraedi toy would be the Glaug booster pack!

      Agreed with J Parucha, you guys now need to show some love to the Zentraedi! The best way to keep a miniatures game alive is to make sure it's balanced and playable (you got the "exciting" bit as soon as you picked the setting)! In terms of suggestions for a big Zentraedi unit, there's the big scout pod from the miss macross episode. Cmon @Palladium, more Zentraedi love!

    7. Joe P on April 23, 2013

      Is the Zentraedi getting a big toy as well? They deserve a "signature" piece too. I can't think of any series canon mecha, maybe some kind of small cruiser or gunboat?

      @Andrew Merifield : I was wondering the same back on day one and sent them a message, they updated their FAQ to say that any add ons to your original pledge do not change the shipping costs. It may bite them in the rear if people add on huge quantities but *Shrugs*

      I hope its a freebie add-on to a a high stretch goal too! MAC's are awespme. would love to stomp one around!

    10. Robotek19 on April 22, 2013

      yeah that's what I figured as well. Well, just under that height is what I had. pledge pledge pledge @ 300k they will show us the size if we can do it before he passes out!

    11. Battle Damage on April 22, 2013

      Someone previously worked out that the MAC II should be about 8cm tall and 14cm long in 1/285 scale. Drool. Gimme. Can't wait.

    12. Robotek19 on April 22, 2013

      Brentil, could always get a friend who wants no Macs (or maybe just one)to jump in on Daedulus with you ;-)

    13. RobotechX on April 22, 2013

      GET SOME!
      bring on the Monster's!

      Sexy. I have to get at least one Daedalus pack.

    15. brentil on April 22, 2013

      @Palladium, I'm not really interested in the other destroids but I do want multiple MAC II units, maybe a 2 or 3 pack of just them by themselves?

    16. brentil on April 22, 2013

      @John H Probably because the 'official' designation of the MAC II is HWR-00-MKII

      I would like to know how international shipping will be handled as it seems that by the end of this KS there may be a lot more than the main box set and it's shipping cost, this above all things will determine if I pledge more.

    18. Robotek19 on April 22, 2013

      Nah it won't be. But maybe if we hit some really big stretch like maybe $500k maybe we can have one.

    19. Mark Perre on April 22, 2013

      Yikes that thing is awesome! Hope that its a free add-on to the larger backers Battle Cry and on :P

    20. Robotek19 on April 22, 2013

      @PB/ND: be advised, I want to do to your leg what my neighbor's dog tries to do to my leg as a sign of "affection". Just sayin'

    21. Anthony Colosetti on April 22, 2013

      Will the Monster be perfectly to scale?

    22. Palladium Books Creator on April 22, 2013

      Sorry, no substitutions on any pledge or add-ons. The Daedalus Attack is designed specifically to let to easily recreate an exciting moment in the anime which features Monsters and Tomahawks. If it proves popular we may do similar add-ons in the future.

      @Palladium, any way we can switch 2 of the Tomahawk/Defenders for Spartans in the Daedalus Attack add-on?

    24. Palladium Books Creator on April 22, 2013

      Oh, just so you know, the silhouette of the Mk.II on the Daedalus Attack Add-on is pretty accurate. I will look to update our scale sheet once we are closer to unlock. :)

      $40 is pretty good I think, if it's as big as I think. I was honestly afraid it would be a lot more.

    26. John H. on April 22, 2013

      Um, if this is licensed, why are you renaming the "MAC-II Monster" the "mark 2 Monster"?

    27. Christopher Ings on April 22, 2013

      @Kriston. I'm not answering for palladium or ND. But in Macross they seem to use US Navy Nomenclature. Squadrons on Carriers are typically 12 fighters broken into flights of 3 or 4 depending on CO's preference. CO flies lead in first flight. XO flies lead in a second flight. Destroids, I reckon will be organized using US Marine Corps Armor formations.

    28. Robert J. Finamore on April 22, 2013

      For International backers, will shipping be $50 (since it is equivalent to getting 2x Showdown)?

    29. Robotek19 on April 22, 2013

      Height wise I think it should stand 2x the height of a destroid, given width and guns etc, its gonna be big

    30. Ropya on April 22, 2013

      $40?
      .
      How big is the darn thing?

    31. Charles S. Morrill on April 22, 2013

      Good idea. Can you post a minimum maximum list of each models based on point build.

      So, can we still get the Daedalus pack even if the strech goal (yeah I know that is unlikely) is not reached? Or is unlocked along with the stretch goal?

    33. Simon6825 on April 22, 2013

      I want a Monster, err no I need the three monsters and Destroids :) I am going to be living on the street after this KS, but at least I can play with my Robotech game :)

      @Palladium : Trying to figure out how many officers I need - is there a maximum size for squadrons?

      Isn't there already a Bursting Point pledge level?
