Thanks for that link. But since it's a Robotech artbook, does that mean it will just be existing artworks with most we're already seen from the original creators? Or screenshots from each episodes and its synopsis? Plus probably artworks from Tommy Yune? Just asking coz I don't own any Robotech books from before. And I just thought that there will be a new artbook from Tatsunoko.

 

Despite the Robotech name, I'm pretty sure that the Southern Cross and Mospeada books are largely documents prepared by Tatsunoko. The discussion at their panels was that these books were compilations of source materials provided by Tatsunoko to help with the adaptation. For Southern Cross, there was very little material so the discussion was that Udon and HG were working with Tatsunoko to try to source more original production materials that they may have in a vault somewhere or something like that.

Given there have been two recent Mospeada books, my bet would be that the Mospeada book will be a rehash of recently published materials since it's the most available but it might be a nice opportunity to get that stuff at a lower price point. The Robotech book will almost certainly NOT include anything relating to Mospeada Breakers.

Thanks @jenius! As much as I know that I will appreciate the english description in the upcoming Robotech book, I'll settle with what I have currently even though they're all in Nihonggo. I just love looking and drooling on those mechanical drawings. Period. Hehehe. :lol:

Yeah, but being out of print and hefty price on Amazon didn't help.
But still glad to hear about it.

Also what about Genesis Breakers?

Genesis Breakers is connected with Sentinel and Sentinel doesn't have POs up for their next regular Mospeada products yet so I think we're probably a long while away from knowing more about that. Breakers may just be Aramaki making new designs for Sentinel with not much more meat to it.

I don't think there was any new updates since they announce the title. No news whether it's going to be an anime or just a side story. All we know is that it's tied a toyline that Sentinel is going to do. But beyond that, my guess is good as yours.

Gwyn and company talked about this on their podcast back in January. Here's the link if you want to listen to it: https://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-138-catching-up-genesis-breaker/

The conversation about Mospeada starts at 2:00:25.

Other thing is if you have a VPN, try to browse this website using Japan's IP address and see if you can find anything new: https://tatsunoko.co.jp/genesis/

 

Edit: So after more searching, this is what we know about Genesis Breakers.

タツノコプロは、新企画「機甲創世記モスピーダ -GENESIS BREAKER-」を発表した。TVアニメーション番組ではなく、千値練より発売される「ライドアーマー」のフィギュアが中心となった展開となるという。   

「機甲創世記モスピーダ」は1983年のアニメ。表題となるモスピーダはバイク形態から戦用のスーツに装着される「ライドアーマー」に変形。メカ描写やSF描写などで人気を博し、現在でも立体化されるほど根強い人気がある。

「機甲創世記モスピーダ -GENESIS BREAKER-」は主人公であるスティック達を含めた人類軍が地球を奪還するため、侵略者・インビットと戦いながらレフレックス・ポイントを目指して冒険を続けるその裏で展開する物語となるという。彼らの戦いの裏で暗躍していた部隊、その名は情報局の「特務隊ブレイカーズ(BREAKERS)」。本作のメカニックデザイナーを務めた荒牧伸志氏、柿沼秀樹氏が再び結集。新たな側面を「GENESIS BREAKER」として描き出すとのことだ。   

この「GENESIS BREAKER」に登場するのが新しいライドアーマーである。千値練は1/12スケールでのアクションフィギュアでの商品化を企画しており、「機甲創世記モスピーダ -GENESIS BREAKER-」はこの商品を中心として企画が進行するとのこと。以前筆者がワンダーフェスティバルで取材した企画が、いよいよ正式に稼動することとなった。続報に期待したい。

Google translation:

Tatsunoko Production has announced a new project "Armored Genesis Mospeda -GENESIS BREAKER-". It is said that the development will be centered on the figures of "Ride Armor" released by Sentinel, not on TV animation programs.  

"Armored Genesis Mospeda" is a 1983 animation. The title Mospeda is transformed from a motorcycle form to "Ride Armor" that is attached to a battle suit. It gained popularity for mechanical depictions and science fiction depictions, and is still so popular that it is three-dimensionalized.  

"Genesis Climber Mospeda -GENESIS BREAKER-" will be developed behind the scenes where the human army, including the main characters Sticks, will continue their adventure aiming for Reflex Point while fighting against the invader Invid in order to recapture the earth. It will be a story. The unit that was dying behind their battle, the name is "Special Task Force Breakers" of the Information Bureau. Shinji Aramaki and Hideki Kakinuma, who were the mechanic designers of this work, have reunited. It is said that a new aspect will be drawn as "GENESIS BREAKER".  

The new ride armor will appear in this "GENESIS BREAKER". Sentinel is planning to commercialize it as an action figure on a 1/12 scale, and "Armored Genesis Mospeda -GENESIS BREAKER-" will be planned around this product. The project I previously interviewed at Wonder Festival is finally officially in operation. I want to expect more information.

I’m just itching to see when Sentinel will show off a colored prototype for the Bartley ride armor.

Though, I wouldn’t be surprised if they go with the Iota(?) Legioss first, since it just needs a different head and probably a tweaked bike.

True. And a hot neon green for its plastic. ;)

For everything Sentinel does that is right, why the pilots & ride armors are not properly painted is beyond me. When that's the one thing EVO Toys does properly you need o step up your game. 

While that's a quick photoshop @no3Ljm, I wouldn't be surprised if that's what it looks like upon release.

Sorry, kind of a double post..(I have already asked on the NY thread, but as it's related to Mospeada/Sentinel. I thought I'd ask here too). Has anyone who preordered their Legioss Zeta from Nippon Yasan received anything yet? Since they've requested the payment, the Zeta has never shown as "in stock". They aren't replying to tickets and I wondered if anyone had received theirs from NY?:(

I've known Tsukuda made Macross war games back in the 80s, but until last week didn't know they had made one for Mospeada. I had to have a copy when I found out and happened to find one for a decent price new and unpunched (with just a little staining on the back of the box).

Awesome find!  That cover art is gorgeous. :wub:

For those interested, I did a quick scan of the Mospeada game from Tsukuda. I need to rescan a few things (like the mapboards need to be flattened out a bit before I scan again, since one corner is blurry).

I did a little "digital restoration" work to the cover image. ^_^

Would you be so kind as to scan the cover of your Macross war game as well?

Just, you know, on the off chance that there's another Macross fan in this thread. ;)
