Robotech the Movie announced!

13 Sep

I am so excited they announced that Robotech would be made into a movie..the question remains which veritech design will they choose?

The classic Robotech used the VF-1 design but that was based off of (a then state-of-the-art) an f-14 tomcat, which is now mothballed. The problem is the fans (such as myself) wouldn’t want the design to be too radically different. So I vote for the VF-11, because it looks similar enough to the VF-1 design but not as radically different as the YF-19 design.

    i used to have a VF-1 (such a reliable craft!), so i’m partial to the design myself, but i’m sure they’d use something flashier… i’d concur in hoping for the YF-19… even though the YF-21 is more similar to the styles seen in the new transformers movie, the plane form i think is a little too radical for american audiences. realistically though, i expect they’ll make up a fairly original new design for the film.

    I had a transformer that was exactly the same design and color as the VF-1. at least, i was pretty sure it was a branded transformer… it didn’t have a figure in the cockpit but the rest was the same, except i could have sworn it had an autobot logo sticker on it.

      you are referring to ‘JetFire’ a transformer that re-used the vf-1 mold.

    that makes sense. I knew transformers were rather blatant in re-using transformer toys from other manufacturers, but I didn’t realize any of them came from the Macross line…

    Toby Maguire. Ew.
