False Alarm : "Macross/Robotech Live Action 2016!!"


Recommended Posts

Can someone shed some light on this? I randomly came across the picture (and then tweet) while looking for VF-1 reference images. It is a tweet that reads:

"Macross/Robotech Live Action 2016!!... #Macross #Robotech #MacrossDYRL #ClaudiaGrant #LisaHayes #HarmonyGold #SDF1"

A link to the tweet.

I'm guessing there still isn't a movie coming, but now I'm very curious about that image, as I've never seen it before. Any ideas?

Clue #1: Any use of Macross designs would summon Thor down from Asgard to slam dowm Mjor on HG & WB for the grandest litigation the universe has ever known.

Very nice picture though. Misa is gorgeous.

NO such news in Japan, so why did you think it leaked first in the State?

It's someone's blind hope. Someone sees something on Deviantart, spreads it around, and then someone says "SEE!!!!!!! OMG!!!!! MOVIE!!!!!!".

I thought we already had a live action Macross. It was called Battlestar Galactica.

Nope, that was live action Gall Force, wasy mistake to make though :)

I added the False Alarm part to the topic's title.

I didn't want people running in here assuming that it is a real thing.

Sorry, I put it in quotes to try and distance it from fact.

Anyone want to post a link to the original artist (and higher resolution version of the work)?

BSG was damn good, and struck a lot of the same chords. Macross would probably need to be three movies (Hollywood would LOVE that) or a high budget TV show. Sadly it is still a bit hard to get Americans to take gigantic transforming robots seriously. I was actually excited about the transformers movies simply because I hoped it would plant the seed for transforming robots on film. Don't get me wrong, if Bay were to direct Macross: The Real Damn Movie, I'd probably become a hermit so I'd never have to see a frame of it, but if the right people took interest...

Then again, I'm still waiting for the Evangelion movie :p
