Update on Unseen/Reseen/Unseen/Uhhhhh?
« on: 21 August 2011, 11:39:02 »
There have been several hinting posts since GenCon that there has been some sort of development in the status of the Unseen, possibly affecting designs that were thought to allow many classic 3025 Mechs to become Reseen.

Is there any official comment on this, or a place where official commentary can be found/requested?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Herb.  It is appreciated.

If I may ask, is there any publicly stated reason at this time for the decision?

Hello,

Yes. The BattleTech Line Developer wishes to take no more chances with images that were not generated in-house by FASA or the other designated license-holders of the BattleTech universe and game line.

Thank you,

Does this mean there will be no more future attempts to control the rights for these images?

Your responses are greatly appreciated.

Hello,

At this time, it remains on the list of things we'd dearly like to do, but fact is, for now, all we can say is that we're not using those images at all.

Thank you,

Thanks for setting things straight, Herb.  I know legal matters are never fun when you have things to get done.

Oh well, off to play more homebrews with Unseen Warhammers!
