Interest peeked yet? Well how’s about some more info as to what’s included in “Robotech: The Complete Set”.
“Robotech” is a sweeping science-fiction anime epic of humans defending their home world against alien domination. The saga is told through the eyes of characters caught up in a series of wars that erupts when a mysterious spacecraft crash-lands on Earth at the turn of the millennium. The secrets of alien knowledge aboard this vessel were unlocked, leading to the development of “Robotechnology” and the creation of a vast arsenal of robotic “mecha” to defend the Earth against the alien threats that would eventually strike to lay claim to the mysterious power source known as “protoculture.” Carl Macek’s groundbreaking sci-fi epic has enthralled audiences for decades since first appearing on American television in 1985.
