First Robotech Convention...?

Recommended Posts

Where and when was your first time ? I went to the 1986 philly area convention. I got to meet Reba West and Carl Macek. This feels like forever ago.post-11090-1233112069_thumb.jpgpost-11090-1233112096_thumb.jpg

I actually got into Macross/Robotech through a friend I had at the time in elementary school who already was into SDF:Macross. I was watching episodes of Macross on video before Robotech aired, and when it finally did, I was already a fan from the getgo. That was back in 1984-1985. I continued on with Robotech, as it was in english and it "continued" from Macross. Of course, in the early 90s, when I was older, I realized that there was much more out there, like Macross DYRL, Flashback 2012, Macross Plus, etc.

While I still enjoy the original 85 episodes of Robotech, the Sentinels, and the Untold Story, after those, I've been a Macross fan.

I think the valkyrie is what got me hooked. When I was a kid I always wanted the transformer jetfire never got one. Now I have two, one has most the armor. The Macross saga also made me look at life in another way...Roy died? I was a kid and most "cartoons" didn't have people die in the episodes.

Yet I still think the valkyrie was the line and sinker.

Man that must be from the time the voice actor of Rand attended as Rick Hunter since Tony Oliver is a bit to big to make an appearance as Rick Hunter. Cool man share it with the guys over at the robotechx fan site.

It was Macek's basement. He promised to show me the secrets of Robotechnology. Life hasn't been the same.
