OLDGAMEREVIEWER.COM REVIEW OF THE NEW ROBOTECH DVD BOX SET has posted a review of the new Robotech DVD Box Set from A&E Home Entertainment. Excerpt.

Comprised of 17 discs including the complete, three-part series (85 episodes in all), “Robotech” has never looked or sounded better than it does in this digitally restored edition. Transfers have been spruced up from the original broadcasts with truly excellent new 5.1 mixes that are constantly active in terms of their original design; purists will also note that some music that had to be changed for “Robotech”’s previous DVD release has, according to the producers, been restored in full for this edition.
Supplements are housed on no less than four platters of their own. These include a full documentary on the making of the series; music videos; alternate versions of select episodes; “Robotech The Movie” supplementals; a promo reel of the show’s Chinese launch; the original “Macross” pilots and more – all new to DVD. The aborted “Robotech II: The Sentinels” pilot is also included along with edited portions of the failed Cannon production “Robotech: The Movie” and plenty more extras from prior DVD editions, from original opening/closing credits to videogame and toy commercials, deleted scenes and tons more.
Both fans of the series as well as newcomers to the show would do well in checking out this massive set from NewVideo that’s simply outstanding in every facet.
