    Just about anything I could add would run afoul of the swear filter, I think. (In a good way, but still.)

    Anyone find it funny that there is a bidding war for the movie rights to a game that PP has not done anything new with for years. Could only hope that they can tie the movie with the game for new contain. Maybe even reboot the game?

    Holy cow. Well, that would explain why they haven't rebooted anything.

    Good on PP, though! They could make bank off of this and a movie tie-in game. It would also attract a lot of new players to their other games.

    Those of us with the game from before have been down this road once already. I'll remain optimistic, but GUARDed.

    hmmmm

    If it wasn't for the SFX cost it would be actually interesting a serie, since the effect "Hey! Look at me! I'm a copy of Pacific Rim! Hate me because of this!" would be smaller, imho

    I would love for this to relaunch Monsterpocalypse! If the movie is a halfway decent mainstream movie or even a cheesy B-movie, I am sure they would reboot the system!

    Cautiously optimistic, my only hope is that if the game does come back it uses the faction box format instead of the random box.

    I would be happy if they did resin kits that we assembled and painted ourselves if it meant we got Series 6 to fill in the figures we never got to fill in the second cycle. Three monster forms in a box, five each of the Units for each faction. One each of the Installations.

    Though I suspect they would release a board game and recycle whatever sculpts they have of the characters that get used in the movie.

    Pretty sure that's supposed to be "30 stories high," no?

    Great news here, I can't wait to see some progress. It's about time!

    This is very good news! I hope they do like a "MkII"-esque reboot and makes it less random to collect. On another note, Warner Brothers is the studio that did PR, soooooo...perhaps some sort of PR tie-in like the Voltron set? I'd rock a tag team of Orochi and Knife Head!

    Nothing major but still. Fascinating to see rumblings on this after so long.

    That which is not dead....you know the rest.

    Glad to see this old Lord of Cthul finally stirring in its slumber. Even if Fede Alvarez's efforts fall through just as Tim Burton's did, it proves that the football is still being kicked around, despite the long silence.

    I wonder what a resurrection of the game would have to look like. All-new factions? A re-issue of series 1, with or without some tweaks? A re-release of NOW+BIJ and a simultaneous release of Series 6? A crappy 2-faction tie-in set to the movie which instantly appears in the bargain basement? Inquiring minds want to know.

    MonPoc is an unappreciated masterpiece. I love that game and I miss it a lot.
