Looks like giant robots are Hollywood's next thing. Tobey Maguire is planningto produce a film based on the Robotech anime. Link (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i1f2de64a1d24bd5585bf89b0691d2011).

I loved watching the cartoon series when it was on Toonami, so naturally, I fear for the movie. It's probably going to be one of those movies that's either going to be totally awesome or total crap. I wonder if Tobey Maguire is supposed to be playing Rick Hunter.

I'm going to have to throw my hat in to play a Zentraedi, I always wondered what my voice would sound like with all that effect on it ;)

Robotech is very near and dear to my heart. They could absolutely crank out the best movie of the year but it depends how they go about it. They might almost be better off doing like Macross Plus rather than try to re-capture the original 1st series macross story deal, I mean that was such a massive epic I don't see how you could distill it into even several movies. Taking out the individual close-ups of everyone gasping in surprise would be a good start though lol.

I get first dibs on being one of the Robotech Masters.

In that case...

DIE TYRANNIC OVERLORD!!! (now just imagine that all reverbed and bass boosted and stuff, I'd be a kickass zentraedi)
