i personally think someone in HG is screwing up Robotech becoming what it can be. If Robotech was a company all the management and staff would have been fired by now…

Get it together , release some new anime in the mean time,eg Shadow Rising, if Macross can release a new series every two years Robotech should be able to!! Talk to Sony and ask them to give the fans some information otherwise “Robotech” will be Solo a Star Wars story mega level flop.

I dont care who is signed on to direct or write the story because that changes every year , I want fact, story boards a date commitment and Shadow Rising finished,, Im at my wits end with Robotech which personally upset me, but how long can HG staff keep releasing crap merchandise, 1980’s level stuff without giving the fans what they are asking for ...NEW ANIME and the LAM… if Sony things the fans will wait for the LAM without any Anime etc they are mistaken….Sony and HG if you cant do it , hand it over to Marvel..

So Sorry I had to write this,

I’ve rather resigned myself to it being over.  Any future stuff will be a nice surprise, but I’ve given up actually expecting anything.

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’ve really given up on any new Robotech productions. After more than ten years, I don’t believe Shadow Rising is ever going to happen. I think there’s just too much legal stuff in the way now preventing anything going beyond an idea stage. Comic books and role-playing games are really all we’re going to get for the foreseeable future, IMO. That’s better than being a totally dead property like Exo-Squad, but it undeniably sucks for those who wished Robotech could have continued in animated form.

As far as the live-action movie, I’m not holding my breath for that one either. I don’t mean to sound pessimistic, but I think it’s unlikely to ever get made the way things are currently going. Lord knows I wish to be proven wrong, but I don’t feel it was ever a priority project at Warner Bros. and that it’s gone the same route at Sony.

This is what annoys me , if Sony and HG pulled their head out of their A##es , Robotech could be an awesome franchise..there are no legal issues ,Japan hasnt done a live action Macross either ..work together with BigWest get a global movie that will satisfy everyone , just market it the same…deal with the “Macross Saga” for the live action then either countries can develop continuity moving on separate ..While this happens , finish shadow rising.. right now I cant understand how HG is even in business other then their property side…this is bold and will get me banned for life but

” HG MANAGEMENT WAKE THE HELL UP AND DO SOMETHING !! IF YOU ARE,  THEN SPEAK TO THE POWERS AT BE AN RELEASE SOME TANGIBLE INFORMATION…...KARL MACEK WOULD BE ROLLING OVER IN HIS GRAVE…..SUCH A NICE MANS LEGACY BEING DESTROYED BY YOUR REFUSAL,SHORT SIGHT TO ACTUALLY LISTEN TO FANS “...aslo if you come back with the comment you cant always listen to fans comment etc, Id remind you without us fans of Robotech, Roboech would be as dead as the rest of Harmony Gold’s anime catalouge…...We could so easy move to Macross (Japan Version) but we have stuck by the story you created….


Im annoyed and 99/999999% doen with HG

It obviously isn’t quite that easy or else it would have been done already, We all know that that the situation regarding Robotech and its involved parties has indeed been an ongoing legal mess for years. We don’t know the full extent of what the proposed live action movie plays in it all, but it seems to be that there’s something that’s standing in the way of all-new Robotech productions on the animated side. Given the success of The Shadow Chronicles on home video, it just doesn’t make sense for HG to not go forward with Shadow Rising for this long unless there was something behind-the-scenes preventing them from doing so, IMO.

I too have sadly resigned myself to the belief that we wont be getting any new animated series, and I’m highly doubtful a LAM ever sees the light of day.
That said, I am extremely happy with the new comic that’s out. I think all parties involved nailed it on this one. I make sure to spend money on them, so as to signal that there’s people paying for new content. After all “money talks”.
Still, I would love to see the actual Robotech story continued. A LAM I could do without, but if it came out I’d go see it for sure.

Also… Exo Squad… now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time…
As a kid those were some of my favorite action figures.

What makes it even sadder… is that Voltron came out on Netflix and the remake is a damn fine show. If they could pull off even half od wgat they did it could have been great.

Ah well, its dead… all dead.

I’ve been waiting on this since the early 2000’s. I remember we discussed which actors we wanted to see casted as our favorite characters. All these actors are now too old. XD

I’m going to take Google Translate, because I’m from Latin America.

I’ve been frustrated by this for years, HarmonyGold wants to kill the franchise ..., why can VOLTRON have new anime and ROBOTECH CAN NOT?

The people of HG do not understand that we want new animation of ROBOTECH, the RTLA is something important, but it is not the main thing that we want, what we want is new animation ...

I’ve been waiting for years of my life SHADOW RISING .... when they announced ACADEMY I finally tried to see new animation, but I fail ...

What does HG do ??? get board games, toys, shirts, stupid.

HG believes that he fulfilled his quota creating the mess of “LOVE LIVE ALIVE”, that are lucky they got him 5 minutes of new animation.

nothing more….

Mr. Kevin spends it saying that the franchise is better than ever ... seriously ??????????

It is a tremendous frustration, the fans are the same as always, HG does not do anything to bring new fans to a new generation that want modern anime something of quality (like attack of the titans).

In the conventions show the same powerpoint as always, showing the same one after another the same and the same.

I love ROBOTECH and it gives me a tremendous pain to see what they do with the franchise.

To date we should have this:
_Shadow Rising
_Shadow 3
_Shadow 4
_Robotech Academy
_Robotech Genesys (story of Zor)
_Academy
Etc etc.

Many animated projects, ...
But what is the problem?
HG DOES NOT HAVE MONEY?
There are extremely important and legal problems with the RBOTECH franchise?

Everything is going bad, every year worse than the previous one, it makes me angry to see the powerpoint of Yune and company.

I am an original fan from back in the day.  I went to conventions, bought the toys, the comics, joined the RDF club.  I don’t know or care what the legal issues are, I was excited about the Sentinels series and wanted to have it run.  I still watch the movie version they made out of the couple episodes they put out.  HG has screwed the pooch not finishing that then coming out with that abomination they called “The Shadow Chronicles”.  I honestly believe the franchise is dead.  The only thing keeping it alive is the original series on Netflix, Amazon Video and others….We the fans have been let down for so long I doubt it will ever be properly resurrected. 

Those in charge (Yune and his crew) need to be tossed aside for others who share Masek’s vision for proper animation, story and character development.  I really don’t want to see skin tight suits with over sized boobs sticking out, I don’t want to see overly CGI’d mecha.  I want continuity with the original story, unlike TSC.  I know folks from HG go through these posts, and they obviously don’t want to listen to us!...HG, fix your issues or let it go so we can get proper Macross here in the United States!!!!!!!!!

Nothing that Harmony Gold does ever makes any sense. How can they dedicate staff to yearly nationwide convention tours for an old TV series? What audience is the live action movie for?

Let’s talk realistic, achievable goals.  THE MACROSS SAGA book last year was great.  When do we get the MASTERS and NEW GENERATION books?

I just saw “Batman Ninja” is amazing, beautiful animation, ROBOTECH would give anything to have that kind of animation
