Robotech

At first I was thing sweet, but they will probably rape my childhood on this one.

Spidey's Maguire Dons Robotech

Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire will produce and may star in a film based on the classic SF anime Robotech, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Warner Brothers Pictures picked up the rights to Robotech, which features giant robots known as mechas. Maguire is producing through his Maguire Entertainment banner and is eyeing the lead role in what the studio plans as an SF franchise a la Paramount's hit Transformers.

Drew Crevello also is producing through his Supercool Hollywood BigTime Productions. Craig Zahler has been tapped to write the screenplay.

Robotech was a cartoon series during the 1980s from Harmony Gold USA and Tatsunoko Productions. It was re-edited and re-dialogued to combine three Japanese anime series to give the producers enough episodes to air as a daily syndicated series.

Robotech takes place at a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology on an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific isle. Mankind is forced to use the technology to fend off three successive waves of alien invasions. The first invasion concerns a battle with a race of giant warriors who seek to retrieve their flagship's energy source, known as "protoculture," and the planet's survival ends up in the hands of two young pilots.

Robotech always confused the shit outta me because it seemed like they were always switching gears onto some different story line that gave me a headache. That and somehow the robotech mech jet is also a transformer? I liked it, but never got my little kid head around it. I do have a couple of the Veritech Fighters still though.

Thats because Robotech is a mis-mash of several different anime series that are known in Japan as the Macross Saga.

The American dist distributor, Harmony Gold USA, took three separate Macross anime series and mashed them together into Robotech. If you watch the Japanese versions of the Macross saga they make more sense. Of course I don't think any of them have English dubbing.

Yeah, I know that now, but that explanation wasn't available at the time, and it would've been a tough sell to my 10yo brain anyway.

I use to watch that shit all the time. I always thought Minmei needed some anal probing by Rick and the boys. That bitch annoyed the shit out of me.

I have a bunch of Robotech Laserdics. Used to watch it in the 80's before school.

battletech is a ripoff of robotech which ripped off SDF Macross and Mospeada.
