    In case my username doesn't give it away, I'm quite a big Robotech/Macross fan :bigthumb:. Anyone have thoughts on the new 'tech series currently in production? From what I gather it will pick up right where the series left off, with Scott & company looking for Hunter and the SDF-3. Supposed to be out later this year or early next. Finally a visual continuation of the story...only took them 20 years :eek3: :bowdown:

    I liked Robotech fine, have it all on DVD, had most of it on VHS from way back in the day.

    But.... Macross was soooo much better.

    Macross > Robotech

    Robotech will always kinda be the retarded stepson of Macross.

    I'm all for another Robotech series. Besides. Most of the mecha designs will focus around Mospeada (New Generation) so it's gotta be good.

    Here's a screencap of Scott Bernard. :eek:

    As long as it isnt 3d... and they are actually Mecha that transform and not whatever was in Robotech 3000 Im sure Ill enjoy it if only for the nostalgia.

    At the same time.... Do they still have the rights to using the mecha and characters from the old series?

    I did some bumbling around last night and found this site:

    http://www.shadowchroniclesnews.com/

    I VERY much hope it doesn't go the route of Robotech 3000...that series just looked awful. According to that site, the new series is to be a mix of traditional animation and CGI. Looks like a fair amount of the original voice cast is returning, and they got Mark Hamil on board too.

    As for the novels...there's been somewhat of a debate for years on whether or not the novels are considered canon material for the Robotech universe. Personally, I have all the novels and I thought they were an excellent continuation of the story, especially in telling the the story of the Sentinels and what ultimately happened with the SDF-3. However, this new series is not following the storyline in the last novel (End of the Circle) so I guess that means there will be two different outcomes to the saga, depending on which story you choose to follow.

    The more I look into this series the more I like it. I just hope they manage to keep the continuity with the original series and not try to make it into a whole new thing like RT 3000.

    Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Will it be continued from the North American Mospeda episodes or is it a whole new story line.

    From what I've been reading on the series, it's based primarily from the new gen, but it's supposed to incorporate characters from all three sagas as well as the Sentinels. So far we see Scott & Marlene from new gen, Louie Nichols from SC, Janice and Reinhart from the Sentinels...considering they're searching for the SDF-3 I can only hope at least one of the Hunters will make it into the story.

    alright, somebody help me out. i thought mospeda, southern cross & macross were all different series in japan and that it was only because of carl macek and co. that they were grouped together into one story for america. so then would i be right in assuming that this shadow chronicles would be america only?
