Palladium signs deal with Harmony Gold to expand their license

Think 1/285th scale


So there was a post by Palladium Books today.. well It seems as though there was a bit of contract negotiating over at Harmony Gold and Palladium Books. Miniatures are going to be produced for Robotech!!. As for the Robotech Battles: Macross currently in development, I will be contacting Palladium Books soon to discuss the project and the ramifications of the news. This project is not dead and we may be able to see a game produced!  Here is their quote. And Yes he did mention me FIRST!! (proud geek moment!!)

UPDATE: Robotech®

You haven’t heard us talk about Robotech® much lately, because we have been secretly working on some big plans for that game line. As you know, I try to keep you informed about everything going on at Palladium Books®. However, sometimes we just can’t reveal our plans or projects for strategic business reasons. For example, we didn’t want a competitor trying to swoop in on Robotech® if we talked too much about our plans. Moreover, we get some fan complaints when we talk about an upcoming project and it gets delayed, or worse, it falls through. We didn’t want that to happen with Robotech®, so we quietly stopped talking about the line but kept working on things behind the scenes. Well, I can finally give you an exciting update.
This week, Palladium Books signed a deal to expand its current Robotech® license with Harmony Gold USA, Inc., including the right to produce and sell pewter game pieces of Robotech® mecha and spaceships. This has been one of the secret projects we’ve been working on for months. Our thanks to Tom Roache, Jon Paulson, Jeff Burke and Carmen Bellaire, along with many others, for their help with our investigation and research on the subject. How soon can you expect to see 1/285 scale mecha available? Probably not until next year sometime. We’ll keep you posted. Sculptors wanted.

Holy crap. Awesome indeed. And now the flood gates will open and the land will become fertile with the sound of Destroids marching across it saying "this is our land you Zentradi scum, die"...

A just a bit excited.
