Robotech Collector's Edition Is Filled With Gorgeous Art And Cool Collectibles
Robottech Collector's Edition
The classic anime series Robotech got an HD remaster this year. Funimation put out the new edition on its streaming service. However, to really celebrate this remaster, Funimation has worked alongside Harmony Gold to not only deliver these Robotech episodes on Blu-ray, but do so in one of the coolest Collector's Editions we've seen in quite some time.
Going on sale on September 28, this giant set will retailer for $250, and you can buy it here. Here's a general description of what this Collector's Edition contains.
- All 85 episodes of Robotech
- 7 hours of special features
- 4 Robotech patches
- Roy Fokker figure
- Vf-1s transforming figure
Of course, all of this is contained with some beautiful packaging. So let's take a closer look at everything contained within the Robotech Collector's Edition.
More pretty artwork
The main box for the set is covered in artwork, and one key theme within the art is the way each piece finishes on the borders, in this chaotic way that looks like canvas that would normally be covered by a frame.
Again, the art is beautiful here. Here's the case that the Blu-rays sit in as a collection--which is the same height and depth as the rest of your Blu-ray collection.
Here are the individual parts for the set. Below, you'll find details for what's on each part in the series.

- Skull Squadron
- Robotech Defense Force United Earth Government
- I Want You For The U.N. Spacy
Here's the Roy Fokker figure. He has a little stand. The figure is fine, but it feels a little frail.
Roy Fokker comes with a helmet
It wouldn't be a Robotech toy unless the pilot had a helmet--one which the character's hair pops out of the helmet. The style of the figure looks exceptionally cool and a good physical representation of that character's art style from the series, but as we said before, it's a bit frail.
VF-1S Veritech Fighter
The prize piece from the Collector's Edition is Roy's veritech fighter, which is 1/100 scale. The paint job is exceptional on it, and here's what it looks like in Battloid mode.
VF-1S Gerwalk Mode
Also called Guardian Mode, the stand holds up the robot well.
VF-1S Fighter Mode
This was the toughest mode to transform, and the biggest bummer was that there wasn't a mini-Roy to put into the cockpit--which comes with the set. Overall, it's still an excellent collectible to come with this entire set.
