Descripción:
Encontré estos dos abandonaron Robotech fan producciones: Robotech: Génesis y Caballeros del cráneo.

Robotech: Génesis tenía "3 años de planificación y pre-producción, con un año en la producción [y] todo está creado en alta definición", citó AlexMMyer
En 2009, "El Grupo de la Tierra Unida" se va a lanzar una versión final libre de DVD de su película. Pero esta película fan fue bloqueado de la distribución por Harmony Gold, porque la naturaleza de Harmony Gold litigiosa y que esta película fan estaría compitiendo con el Robotech: película Shadow Chronicles.
Por lo que yo sé, Robotech: Caballeros del cráneo todavía inédito por la misma razón.

¿Podría alguien compartir lo que saben acerca de la historia y los personajes de estas dos películas Robotech fan-base?

¡Gracias!


Description:  
I found these two abandoned Robotech fan productions: Robotech : Genesis and Skull Knights.  
Robotech : Genesis had "3 years of planning and pre-production ,with a year in production [and] it's all created in High Definition"  quoted AlexMMyer
In 2009, "The United Earth Group" was going to release a final free DVD version of their movie. But this fan movie was blocked from distribution by Harmony Gold because Harmony Gold's litigious nature and that this fan movie would be competing with the Robotech: Shadow Chronicles movie. As far as I know, Robotech : Skull Knights is still unreleased for the same reason.
Could someone share what they know about the story and characters for these two fan-based Robotech movies?

Thanks!

Descripción: 
Hace cinco millones de años en el planeta artificial llamado Cybertron, dos clanes de robots, los Autobots y los Decepticons, lucha por la supervivencia a través de la provisión de alimentos disminuye rápidamente llamó energon. Ambas facciones descubren que la Tierra prehistórica se puede utilizar como una nueva fuente de energon, escuadrones de comandos para la élite de ambos grupos proceder a la Tierra. Si bien la lucha entre sí en la órbita terrestre, ambos grupos la tierra choque y llegar a ser no funcional. En 1986, un terremoto rara trae el sistema de reparación del robot en línea y que toman su guerra otra vez. 


He aquí una selección de los episodios de "The Transformers" y "Transformers: Directores" dibujos animados con Skyfire! Los episodios se enumeran en orden la historia y no la producción o difusión orden. 


Shoji Kawamori es el diseñador / ingeniero visual mecha del SDF Macross TV VF-1 Valkyrie mecha. La historia de cómo el VF-1S Valkyrie juguete estupendo 1/55 se convirtió en el personaje animado Skyfire es un poco complicado. 


En 1985, Bandai Juguetes había comprado la empresa en quiebra Takatoku que produce juguetes Macross escala 1/55. En ese momento, las producciones Sunbow estaban en el proceso de hacer el dibujo animado Transformers como una forma de vender sobrantes juguetes que venían de shows de anime mecha japoneses. Sunbow contrató Hasbro Toys (EE.UU.) para trabajar con Takara Toys (Japón) para adquirir estos juguetes para volver a colorear y reenvasado bajo la marca Transformers. Takara Toys compró un mercado internacional sub-licencia de Bandai para producir Macross VF-1 juguetes de los dibujos animados Transformers. En 1986, los juguetes SDF Macross llegaban a ser populares otra vez con el lanzamiento de la Macross: Dryl? película, así que Bandai quería seguir haciendo VF-1 Valkyrie juguetes dentro de Japón. Bandai no permitiría que su competidor juguete, Takara Toys, para producir más de un 1/55 VF-1S de Super Valkyrie para los dibujos animados Transformers. El único internacional Bandai 1/55 VF-1S juguete estupendo Valkyrie fue entonces re-coloreado y reenvasado por Hasbro que se vende bajo el nombre de Jetfire.

Producción de Big West posee la licencia principal Macross para los mercados japoneses e internacionales nacionales. En 1985, Big West ya había vendido la licencia internacional de animación de SDF Macross TV para Tatsunoko Productions. Tatsunoko Producciones luego vendió una sub-licencia de Harmony Gold USA para Robotech: Las otras dos series de anime mecha japonés Saga Macross y. Producciones Sunbow no era capaz de conseguir una licencia internacional de derechos de autor de Big West para poner el VF-1 Valkyrie diseño animado en el dibujo animado Transformers!

El diseño de mecanismos VF-1 no podía ser animado directamente en el dibujo animado Transformers por la licencia internacional de diseño de animación propiedad de Harmony Gold USA. Asimismo, el VF-1 Jetfire nombre juguete no podía no estar asociada con el VF-1 mecha debido a la licencia de juguetes propiedad de Bandai. Por lo tanto, el diseño del VF-1 mecha y el nombre del personaje se transformaron en Skyfire para el dibujo animado Transformers.


El equipo de diseño de mecanismos Macross SDF de Shoji Kawamori y Kazutaka Miyatake también han diseñado muchos de los transformadores / juguetes Diaclone incluyendo Optimus Prime!

Description:

Five million years ago on the artificial planet called Cybertron, two robot clans, the Autobots and the Decepticons, fight for survival over the rapidly dwindling food supply called energon. Both factions discover that the prehistoric Earth can be used as a new source of energon, so elite commando squads from both groups proceed to Earth. While fighting each other in Earth orbit, both groups crash land and become non-functional.  In 1986, a rare earthquake brings the robot repair system online and they take up their war again.

Here is a selection of episodes from "The Transformers" and "Transformers: Headmasters" animated cartoons featuring Skyfire!  The episodes are listed in story order and not production or broadcast order.

Shoji Kawamori is the mecha designer / visual engineer of the SDF Macross TV VF-1 Valkyrie mecha. The story of how the 1/55 VF-1S Super Valkyrie toy became the Skyfire animated character is a little complicated.

By 1985, Bandai Toys had bought out the bankrupt Takatoku company that produced 1/55 scale Macross toys.  At that time, Sunbow productions were in the process of making the Transformers cartoon  as a way to sell left-over toys that came from Japanese anime mecha shows. Sunbow hired Hasbro Toys (USA) to work with Takara Toys (Japan) to acquire these toys for re-colouring and repackaging under the Transformers brand name.  Takara Toys bought an international market sub-licence from Bandai to produce Macross VF-1 toys for the Transformers cartoon.  By 1986, the SDF Macross toys were becoming popular again with the release of the Macross: DRYL? movie, so Bandai wanted to keep making VF-1 Valkyrie toys within Japan.  Bandai would not allow its toy competitor, Takara Toys, to produce more than the one 1/55 VF-1S Super Valkyrie for the Transformers cartoon.  The one and only international Bandai 1/55 VF-1S Super Valkyrie toy was then re-coloured and repackaged by Hasbro to be sold under the name of Jetfire.

Big West production owns the main Macross license for domestic Japanese and international markets.   By 1985, Big West had already sold the international animation license of SDF Macross TV to Tatsunoko Productions. Tatsunoko Productions then sold a sub-license to Harmony Gold USA for Robotech: The Macross Saga and two other Japanese mecha anime series. Sunbow Productions was not able to secure an international copyright licence from Big West for putting the VF-1 Valkyrie animated design into the Transformers cartoon!

The VF-1 mecha design could not be animated directly into the Transformers cartoon because of the international animated design license owned by Harmony Gold USA.  As well, the VF-1 Jetfire toy name could not be associated with the VF-1 mecha due to the toy license owned by Bandai.  So, the VF-1 mecha design and the name of the character were changed into Skyfire for the Transformers cartoon.
