"Robo War" Picture

Recommended Posts

post-248-1238466534_thumb.jpg

This has always been one of my favorite Macross images. I first saw it back in the '80's when it was labeled "Robo War" ROBOTECH back in the day - but it MUST have existed before HG used it for posters and box sets.

Anyone know where it originated from and where I might get a really high rez scan of it?

Thanks

Its probably from a menko card sort of product, or one of Ohsato Toy & Hobby's products. They had a lot of deco in that style.

Alternately, it may have been from an anime magazine of the period. Those got a lot of excellent, original art.

Pretty sure that's among the paintings for Macross model kits/video releases/et cetera that got recycled a million times, possibly one of the Toshimichi Suzuki ones. Suzuki is probably better known as the president of Artmic.

I "have" it... though it has the huge "Robotech" title and fades to dark on top... It's basically a page from my 2002 ADV catalogue.

[edit]Here's a preview, I can't seem to upload the bigger image :( I can upload it somewhere else if you still want it.

Original Image Size: 2199 x 3156; Image scanned at 300 dpi.

It's not exactly what you wanted unfortunately...

That image of the VF-1J is by far my favorite image of Robotech. I remember seeing it in one of the Comico comics' ad (maybe an ad for one of the FHE video releases of the Macross saga). The VF-1J was always my favorite Valkyrie.

I have it on the 2nd volume of my Robotech Macross Saga VHS Tapes, back when Streamline pictures released it back in the early 90's, I still have it.

This was originally a poster and was found in the issue of My Anime, December 1982. It is a jumbo fold-out poster and there's a little bit more at the bottom than previously seen on Robotech posters. Scanning it would be tough since its a fold out poster and has lots of creases. There are a few collectors that have the poster, I am one. If I can find a good technique for photographing folded poster, I'll get you a nice big pic.

Its too nice to be Suzuki's IMO. The original My Anime poster is signed "SToshi" not ARTLAND like the Robotech posters.
