So the chatter is that Toby Maguire is attempting to create a Robotech Live Action film. I have one question for you Mr. Maguire. WHY MUST YOU CONTINUE TO RAPE MY CHILDHOOD???

For those that wish to entertain the absurd notion that it might not suck...feel free to post your insignificant replies below.

Somehow I can't help but think Maguire was just floating an idea. Can you imagine hoops required just to get the image rights for the mechanic designs for Macross alone; then the owners of Harmony Gold have to license story rights aw well. Nevermind trying to compress the story into a two hour format.

"Do You Remember Love" works as a movie largely because the series was so popular at the time. When I first saw it I couldn't keep from thinking it was like a clip show where all the clips had been reshot from scratch for the big screen.

So is there a link you can share for context sake?

I can't see a live action version being made. That being said, if it does come true, it could finally pave way for decent and faithful adaptations. Who knows.

The rights alone, because some of the spinoffs are Macross, are an issue in themselves. I also think a single movie wouldn't do the franchisee justice.
