Hmmm, just an idea here. It may not work with the lion voltron force, but with the vehicle voltron force. It just might work!

SDCC Press Release: Robotech Returns In Crossover With Voltron!

Dynamite Partners with DC Entertainment, World Events Productions, and Harmony Gold!

Author: Dynamite Entertainment


July 16 2013, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment proudly announces that they have acquired the rights to publish comic books based on the beloved science fiction anime, Robotech®. In a unique sub-licensing arrangement with DC Comics and with the Harmony Gold production company, Dynamite Entertainment will publish a new series beginning with a Robotech / Voltron® crossover event. This crossover marks the first time uniting the popular Robotech cast with the five lions of Voltron, a fan-favorite World Events Productions property.

The Robotech series debuted in 1985, an adaptation combining concepts from three Japanese anime series (Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Genesis Climber Mospeada, and Super Dimension Century Southern Cross) into a new, cohesive narrative. It followed three generations of Earth soldiers who salvaged and repurposed alien technology in combat against consecutive extraterrestrial invasions and was produced by the renowned animation studio Tatsunoko Production Co. Voltron, based on the story of five robotic lions piloted by a team of brave space explorers that combine to form the mighty metallic hero, launched in the U.S. in September of 1984 and quickly became a #1 rated animated series that will celebrate its 30th Anniversary in 2014.

"Robotech and Voltron are two of the most recognizable anime series that defined '80s pop culture," says Tommy Yune, creative director at Harmony Gold and mastermind behind the upcoming crossover. "Both franchises have endured in their popularity today and fans have long speculated of an epic crossover between the universes. The opportunity to do so is an honor, and it's a welcome challenge to construct a storyline that works well with key characters on both sides. Most important of all, it's going to be a lot of fun with plenty of surprises."

“For years fans of Voltron and Robotech have crossed over, and now, thanks to Dynamite Entertainment and DC Comics, we will see what happens when these two incredible universes finally fuse together,” said Jeremy Corray, creative director at World Events Productions. “Get ready for the intense mecha battles and hero team-ups fans have dreamed of!”

"Robotech is one of the finest intellectual properties ever to come out of Japan, and we are so very fortunate to be able to contribute to its legacy of thrilling science fiction action and drama," says Nick Barrucci, CEO/Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "We're also thankful to have such great partners on this journey, with
DC Comics and Harmony Gold granting free license to Dynamite for our upcoming Robotech comic projects, and joining us in this incredible first-ever crossover with Voltron. We've published Voltron for years, and this is definitely rewarding to place the two fan-favorite universes together."

“Skyscraper-sized robots and city-crushing monsters are no strangers to the Dynamite gang, thanks to our fine experience with the Voltron license," adds Barrucci. "We've been the proud home to Voltron since 2011, and I think our talented creators and editorial staff really balanced the science fiction and space fantasy elements of that franchise with 'the human story' of its pilots. We're very excited to continue the adventures of the Five Lions and the Voltron Force pilots as part of the crossover penned by Tommy Yune, and recapture the very best qualities of our previous Voltron series in this exciting new venture. Robotech / Voltron is a fan's dream, one we're thrilled to add to our line of comics!" The new Robotech / Voltron team-up adds additional content to Dynamite's existing Voltron projects, published as two series thus far and expanding the mythos licensed from World Events Productions. The first-ever pairing of these two giant cartoon properties is expected to attract huge media and fan attention in time for Voltron’s 30th Annivesary. A new Robotech series will follow in the wake of the crossover.

The appreciation for the original Robotech television series, its comic spin-offs, and expansive universe of additional content runs deep at Dynamite, as evidenced by the passionate reflections of Joe Rybandt, the company's Senior Editor. "Every day after school, I would watch Robotech and I loved it. LOVED IT. Probably for a lot of the same reasons that I loved Claremont's Uncanny X-Men, in that it was soap opera mixed with incredible action and excitement. Also, it was my first introduction to episodic television starring giant robots and, y'know, GIANT ROBOTS. I've gone back to the show every now and again, and still find it a rewarding experience, filled with great characters and amazing design. And now, here I sit, getting ready to set a new course with the comics."

Tommy yune just come to answer me on Robotech.com, i asked if this deal with Dynamite Comics will permit more robotech comics

he answered:
It does, and the licensing arrangement through DC gains us welcomed resources to devote back into comics as the closure of Wildstorm had halted some projects we had been working on at the time.
