    Robotech by Titan Comics

    Remember that this is the Robotech Zentraedi, not DYRL Zentradi. Breetai, Khyron and Exedore do have character development in the RT lore. Myria most certainly has personality. Also no reason why any Zentraedi comander/soldier wouldnt develop a personality (if they survive ) as the Clone Troopers did in Clone Wars, given that they are essentially from human stock. It would just be in a purely military oriented context. As to fighting the Invid, well, the Invid adapt and evolve. They can adapt their mecha to fight giant antagonists just as the humies did. What they would really require is a huge numerical boost.

    Lol. If you mean me then they would have failed even more stupendously than they actually have. If I was the target audience I 'd want the following changes: 1) Scrap this story. Make it all about the Zentraedi battling the Invid. 2) Replace the writer/s with Dan Abnet. Have the Zentraedi commanders actually use the experience they should have gained to utilise decent " spacewar tactics." 3) Make it entirely painted by Sergio Quijada, or an artist of equal calibre (there are a great many fantastic artists out there). 4) Use the classic designs with some DYRL mecha thrown in. 5) Have massive ground battles and fleet engagements. Lots of beauty shots of the mecha and armour etc. Or else don't bother.

    Macross figures

    Why? Why is it always only these stupid idols we see?

    But being Robotech is not the real reason its bad. The reason its bad is that its not even aimed at the existing Robotech fans, but is instead just another totally warped and unnecessary reboot for Ztards.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    You said it. I remember trying to watch Gatchaman Crowds and being unable to stomache it. A lot (sometimes insane amount) of detail went into the artwork in some of those shows in 80s. Paul "Otaking" Johnson said as much in one of his youtube videos. If you havent already you should check out his short animated TIE fighter and Dr. Who films on youtube.

    I am living proof of said debunking. My childhood play was nothing but endless glorious battles throughout time and across the omniverse... yet I am not a mass muderer/serial killer as an adult. Hmm.

    How do they reason thusly? Do anime shows involve mind control via subliminal messages? I despise such flawed reasoning where no-one is accountable for their own choices. Whatever happened to people being raised properly i.e. instilled with discipline and proper societal values in the home, and being thereby able to resist negative external influences? "Raise the child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." I guess no-one should watch Disney cartoons either because they are so violent, lol.

    Hmm. Another glaring Delta flaw highlighted. Hopefully more mecha variety next time.

    Not if the shows don't contain what we want. I'm sure that's always the goal, its just a pity that the potential for Macross to be awesome sci-fi is being lost. Its becoming just another anime.

    And you are not even mentioning that the the First Order needed a derivative of Deathstar Technology to get through a wall in TLJ, when a single high powered blast from an AT-AT's heavy blaster cannons could obliterate a Kuat Drive Yards DSS-02 shield generator in ESB.

    Originally it was intended to be Wookies in that battle, and Endor was meant to be Kashyyk. This would have been a lot more convincing IMO. Walkure is German for Valkyrie. To me all the singers in Macross are annoying, with the exception of the Marduk Emulators.

    That's like the popularity of Star Wars being all about people thinking the Ewoks are cute.
  13. More Clone Wars? No Complaints here.

    If I look at this "art" versus anything done by John Byrne I feel very ill.

    It depends on the formula. The thing that makes people unanimously love an "The Empire Strikes Back" or unanimously hate a "Skyline". Its not impossible to make a show with universal appeal if they care to do so.
