Robotech Legacy Box 1

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Robotech: The Macross Saga - Legacy Collection 1 is a three-disc DVD box set that was released in 2001 by ADV Films. The first disc contains the first six episodes of the Macross portion of Robotech, while the second disc contains episodes seven through 12.

The first and second discs both have an option for Scene Selection; this allows you to choose which episode to watch on a disc, and where in the episode you want to begin viewing the disc. Both discs also have previews on them. The first disc has previews for Getter Robo, Nadesico, Orphen, Evangelion, Gasaraki, and Gunsmith Cats. The second disc in the set has previews for Generator Gawl, Lost Universe, Princess Nine, Bubblegum Crisis, Arc the Lad, and Sorcerer Hunters.

The third DVD in the set is labeled as "Extra Macross Saga 1 - Elements of Robotechnology." This DVD contains all of the special features included in this box set. The first extra is Codename: Robotech, which is a "film" that starts about halfway through the episode "Blue Wind" and goes through the episode "Gloval's Report" (which was basically a "clip show" that recapped what happened in the series up to that point). There is also a version of this feature with audio commentary provided by Carl Macek, which gives a history of the Robotech property, as well as explains the Codename: Robotech "film." This feature also has a "hidden Easter egg"; there is an unlisted audio track, which is a music-only track for Codename: Robotech.

There are also animation model sheets included. This is a gallery of line art that you can scroll through at your own pace. There are 33 pages of line art of the various characters: Rick Hunter, Lynn Minmei, Lisa Hayes, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, Captain Gloval, Maximillian Sterling, Miriya, Ben Dixon, Lynn Kyle, Kim Young, Sammie Porter, Vanessa Leeds, Dana Sterling, Jason (Lynn Minmei's cousin), Breetai, Exedore, Khyron, Dolza, Azonia, Bron, Rico, and Konda. It should be noted that the images for Kim and Sammie are mislabeled; Kim's name was put next to Sammie's face, while Sammie's name was put next to Kim's face.

The last feature is labeled as "International Clip." It takes a clip that appears in this first box set, and lets you watch it in several different languages. The scene that is used takes place right before Rick Hunter and Lynn Minmei are rescued after being trapped in the SDF-1 for almost two weeks. The clip is available in English, French, Spanish, Portugese, and Italian. However, Im puzzled about why the original Japanese clip wasn't included; there's nothing inappropriate in the footage for the original Japanese clip that would have prevented ADV Films from using it for the "International Clip" feature.

Overall, this is a decent DVD box set. However, I wish ADV Films had gone to more effort to remaster the video for the release; when you watch the Super Dimension Fortress Macross box set released by AnimEigo, you can see that the footage that appears on that set is much sharper and clearer than what appears on this release. This particular DVD box set is now out of print, although ADV Films has released other Robotech box sets after this particular pressing of DVD sets.

If you are a fan of Robotech and happen to stumble upon a used copy of this DVD set, I would recommend picking it up.

I wrote this review after watching a copy of this DVD set that my husband and I purchased.
