Plans for a live-action Robotech movie have been revived I suppose as long as we are bringing back ASTRO BOY, there's room for a live-action ROBOTECH movie. I have only seen a few episodes of the series that debuted in the 1980s, but for true fans I’m sure this has to have them more than a little curious.
