Hello, Salut, Hola, Moi,

To all the people that goes aroound the Int’l Forum. It’s the first time in years that I show up to the official site and to my out most dissapointment, pretty much every thing remains the same.

No changes at all, well besides a new movie that i didn’t know about.

The store is as always “out of stock”, the News releases has a 2 years hole… Ooohh yes there was a “new” poll.

I always thought that we were close to have some continuity or at least closure on the Robotech universe, but nowadays I think that this will go down in history as one of the series that never really got to be wrapped up.

My apologies that my first post in years is a Rant, but I am really disappointed. Maybe soon I’ll recall why I stopped showing up.

My regards to all members of the Int’l Forum, some names I remember, but I will not mention any so I don’t get anyone upset.

I’ll make myself a promise to show up at least once a month.

Amazing that 12 years has gone by and the only thing that we can show from all this time are a few toys and a couple of video movies.

I’ll see you around
Nacho

How are you?
You don’t have to apologize, because situation is really that bad.
If you have time, go see the last posts of the European Robotech Fans thread.
Situation is discouraging at best, hopeless at worst.
From an European point of view, their strategies are only towards North American viewers.
The crossover between Voltron and Robotech is of no interest here, because Voltron in considered a (very) minor robot series.
Here we generally disapprove the mash of unrelated seris like the 3 that formed Robotech, but we saw the cartoon at our early age, so there is still an interest fueled by nostalgia.
But even nostalgia needs to be fed with some new story.
I wonder if they even notice that European threads close one after the other.
Welcome back (If I were you, I’d wonder if returning has been worth it).

I agree that all their “Marketting” efforts are focused on the US market. I find it hard to understand why the do not grasp the concept that Robotech reached worldwide.

Excuses can be used as number of fans, critical mass, etc, but in my case the original series I had to buy it on the store paying double price just for the S&H and Custom fees.

I only bought the first 5 Masterpieces Veritech since I could not afford paying extra just because it was released only on the US market.

The shadow chronicles movie, I bought it on Heathrow (London airport) due to a lucky break that it was there, I paid a fortune and it was the simplest version ever.

If you put all this together then you wonder how they expect to resurrect Robotech if a good bunch of fans are left aside. If steps are taken really slow and I do not see that long awaited and much expected continuation of the story is going to happen.

Sorry, Rant again!
C U around.

Yes i agree with you on all points. We here in Russia used to get all the series from ... it’s not for press.  :rofl: realy. I’ve saw love live alive online, without translation. Without even subtitres. In fact nowhere from i can get RT products… on Ru Amazon prices are realy awfull. So we all Russian fans learn: spanish, english etc… Realy we can easily find original Macrosses then Robotech.

But there are good things in Russian RT fandom. Macross and Robotech now we used to mix in one group. There are lots of Macross Frontier fans can be also interested in Robotech strory. And another good point
We started to write fan fiction ourselves. This points keeps fandom alive
