If you could own the Robotech brand tomorrow.... was created by blackconvoy_D01

....what would you do? What changes would you make?

I, myself would do the following:
-allow all CM and Yamato, etc manufacturers to let their products to be sold in the US openly.
-complete and release a great version of shadow rising
-revamp the sentinels comic series as a web series
-make the sentinels comic story cannon
-make the live action movie as close to the series as possible

I'd release RT: The Untold Story, do the Sentinels as an online subscription web comic w/ voices and flash animation (then sell it on a DVD set), then do one more RT feature film that had all new mecha and wrapped up the entire series. Then I'd approach BW and make a deal where they would be able to put Macross over here, as well as the toys. Lucrative, and why spend all that money, when Macross already has a booming franchise? That'd be my goal in a really condensed nutshell.

I'd drop Shadow Rising, the un-named feature, the live action movie, and Toynami.

I'd find a better toy company to make RT specifics across the pay bands, while re-intergrating a Sentinels story that would flow into Shadow Chronicles. I'd then make a short feature or comic series to continue and finish the Shadows arc.

I'll then propose a feature series or a TV series of RT set a decade or so into the future, with tie ins to possibly comics and a video game. If that works out well, and on the strength of sales/profits, only then would I seek to allow Macross material in the US. and/or have the drive for a live action feature.

I would turn shadow rising into t.v. series with all new mech phase in. I think I could design alot of the mechs. I really want a good write to write the episodes. I am o.k. with plot but when comes to chactors all of them I made are one dimensional. I have Tatsunoko Productions do the animation character design and mecha design refinement and let Tatsunoko do a Japanese dub. I would try to strike a deal with cartoon network to get it on and have good time slot which is right now is Friday between 6 and 9 central time. this time is where most of the cartoons of the action gene are shown. I would let BW release Macross over here. the issues of sentinels comic that fit in tv and movie canon be canon. Make a video game base of the sentinels with animated cutscenes. I get Retro Studios to do the game. I have Tatsunoko do the cutsences.

First, I'd simultaneously push the classic series, re-releasing in DVD and Blue Ray with a BIG media push; and concurrently advance the storyline through "Shadow Rising" and beyond. Once you have a solid story to sell/tell, the other merchandising can go from there.

I wonder though, how much is the robotech franchise worth?

I would lock every thing away...not let anything be released. I would start law suits on any copyright infringements because its ALL MINE, MINE, MINE and keep it for for myself ;)
