It really doesn’t take that long to actually film a fairly big budget movie. Pre-production, production, and post-production can all be done in less than a year, with time to do reshoots (if necessary) included. It’s pretty much how Disney is doing the current Star Wars movies.

What takes bloody forever is just getting started. That’s not a problem for relatively well-known properties or new properties that got a ton of money behind them. Even though most of us here grew up with Robotech, it’s not all that well-known beyond us and isn’t exactly the top priority at Sony…

I’ve said this before in other threads, personally I think this whole Robotech: LAM project is/was nothing more that an elaborate ‘Red Herring’.

Designed to foul up any new animated Robotech projects.

Seriously! What have we gotten in the last 10+ years?

Just new DVD releases by different companies, and Robotech: Long Live Alive.

If they had a true Live-Action movie, i wouldnt complain at all as lomg as the cast is good and its directed by someone who actually knows the universe.

The thing is that we’ve heard little more then the ‘revolving door’ of producers and writers attached over the last 10+ years. Still no news of a plot, story, or what era the film will depict. One problem already is the established timeline. 2018 is in the post ‘Reconstruction’ era’; during which the SDF-3 is built, and the initial phase of the Pioneer mission begins.

This franchise seems to be on its last legs anyway.

I remember when Beast Wars had that issue when Black Arachnia mentioned when the volcano erupted in 1985, awakening the dormant Autobots and Decepticons inside of the Ark, just flat-out ignoring the fact that by the time that episode aired that it was 1998.

What has that got to do with anything, beside the writers not doing their homework?

It was probably a reference to when the Transformers Toys were officially released in the US…like Die-cast construction being a “lost art.”

It was, and Robotech is now in the same situation.  1999 was 19 years ago, and as mentioned by yourself Megalord1, if we were really in the Robotech universe, we’d be in the post-reconstruction era and preparing for the Expeditionary Force’s departure.  The writers of future Robotech projects can choose to either ignore the fact that the world has gone past the dates established in the show, or they can set future projects farther in the future, thereby repeating the cycle later on.

That’s fixed easily enough.  All they gotta do in the LAM is not give specific dates.

If it ain’t in the Robotech show itself… It didn’t neccessarily happen.

Thanks, Carl Macek, for introducing me to all these folks.  Even the ones who bug me.

I would rather have them take up from where the sentinels tv series/movies left off! I prefer if they continue the animation over live action! Should they decide to pick up from the last sentinels tv animation, I hope they do some rewrite for the remaining episodes of the sentinels! Because I don’t really like the jack mckinney’s or even carl macek’s story arc; my idea for the rewrite will focus on the first generations namely rick, lisa, max, miriya, breetai, exedore and dr lang while wrapping up minmei in the episode immediately after the wedding ceremony. Give these first generations a good wrap up in the final episode of the Sentinel series after their hard struggle with the invid with victorious ending just like the epic ending of the first saga!

I don’t really care about Robotech LAM anymore. HG should just cut its losses and moved on. I would rather have the continuation of Robotech Shadow Rising, either in animated format, OR if not, either in serialised comic miniseries / webcomic by the Waltrip Bros (veterans of RT II Sentinels comic artists).

Look at Starship Troopers. The fanchise moved on with atleast Direct-to-DVD / Blu-Ray releases with the gorgeously animated sequels the likes of Starship Troopers: Invasion & Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars! And the director of both animated sequels are nonetheless, maestro Shinji Aramaki, a creator cum mecha designer of Genesis Climber Mospeada that actually served as the 3rd arc od Robotech saga. It really showed how Sony Pictures valued Shinji Aramaki by making him directing TWO sequels of Starship Troopers.

HG teams should just discussed with Sony Pictures to continue concluding Robotech Shadow Rising arc and for GOODNESS SAKE, get Shinji Aramaki onboard!

Is it safe to assume that the LAM is dead these days?

Unknown.

A far as I know, the project is still in ‘development hell’. The announcement of a director is about all that’s new. Other then that, it’s been the ‘revolving door’ of producers and writers over the last 10+ years.
