Extra Features

The Macross Saga:

  • Codename Robotech (Original Series Feature) with audio commentary on the history of Robotech by series developer Carl Macek: This is a movie based on the first thirteen episodes of the show to bring viewers who might have missed the beginning up to date. It’s interesting to see how they condensed the show. The commentary is very good, with Carl Macek talking about how the show was put together and sold, and relating some of the details of marketing the show. Very informative.
  • Animation Model Sheets (Character Library & Mecha Library)
  • International Clips – the same seen shown in different languages. It’s pretty fun.
  • Gallery of Macross Comic Book Covers – the Comico releases, not the more recent version.
  • Galaxy of the Stars (Harmony Gold Promo Film)
  • Toy Commercials (Circa 1986)
  • Character Bios
  • Point Of View (Interview with Carl Macek 1986) – a 15-minute interview with Carl Macek from a Dallas TV station where he plugs the movie.
  • Robotech® II: The Sentinels (With special commentary by Carl Macek) – an attempt at creating another robotech series that never got off the ground. A very interesting bit of history, and a lot of fun to watch.
