I can tell everyone here for certain that Palladium Books is completely done with Robotech. They will not see a dime from any sales made here or anywhere else online. By late June of 2018 they had liquidated all of their held stock to third parties and no longer hold the license. If you are worried about 'supporting' Palladium books, you'd have to go buy one of their books to do that. This is merely liquidation of way too much produced wave 1 miniatures. As for the allegations of theft. It just isn't true. They wasted the money on reworks of sculpt renders and purchasing way too much stock of wave 1. Mistakenly believing they would sell through it to fund wave 2. Terrible communication to boot as they tried to play for time to find some way of making this work out in the end. Only finally facing cold hard reality when they ran out of time and money to renew the license. I do not work for Palladium books, but I was there. I volunteered to help ship out wave 1 rewards, and ship 'settlement' packages to try and make sure everyone got as much stuff as they could. Of course this will not do anything to dissuade those who want to hurl venom, but it is the truth. For that matter I also enjoy the game, and have way too much of it currently sitting in my Garage. Oh, and I can assemble these just fine, _without_ tweezers. I swear some of you guys have never dealt with fiddly bits before. Get the antennae to stay on infinity miniatures a few times, then come back and tell me all about how you have to break out the tweezers. Or certain battletech minis for that matter. As for any accusations of 'white knighting' for Palladium. I am the first to call them out for the horrific mismanagement of the project and the complete and abject failure of leadership and planning. But I've seen the cars they drive. Nobody took the money and ran. It was misspent, but misspent on wave 1 games. There was no money to give refunds. I was out quite a bit myself and was deeply disappointed. But I got over it.
