Thank you. You mean the old Palladium books? Wish I had one back in the day. It would have improve my work earlier. I use to rant on how I dislike the Battle Class designs for Macross 7 up to Macross Frontier. And here I am, designing one like it.
They actually have been doing a redux of the Robotech versions over the last few years. I've been writing the part based off Genesis Climber MOSPEADA and the original Sentinels material. I did like Macross Quarter more than the battle class, though Galaxy looked pretty spiffy at the end of Frontier. The thing I fell in love with in Frontier was the Koenig transformable Little Monster. Wish we had gotten to see more of it. As for Macross 7...errm...well....you know...LOL!
Yep. A lot of the details from the novels and comics have been tossed and I get to fill in some of it. It's kind of an open book right now on what happened during the Pioneer expedition specifically, but the outcomes and species and major points are about the same.
