Jesus Barrero with Victor Covarrubias @ SDCC 2008 RTX Fan Table
The number one Latin American voice actor Jesus Barrero passed away on February 16, 2016 after complications of lung cancer at just 57 years young. Many of us who watched Robotech in Spanish as kids grew up with him as the voice of Rick Hunter. We at RobotechX had the distinct honor to have him as a guest at our first San Diego Comic Con RobotechX Fan Table in 2008. Thank you for making a part of my childhood memorable, you will be missed!

Was the KS just used as a tool to gauge the fans due to the lack of content? Or was it really just a project in its infancy without much content? Let's discuss some points.
