Merchandise - Books and Comics
This section contains information on "Robotech the movie" book, calendar and comic releases. Unsurprisingly there are few releases relating directly to the movie. However all of the material here originates from the US, where the film wasn’t widely released. For "Megazone 23 Part 1" books, please see this page. For other "Megazone 23" books, please see this section.
The 1988 Robotech Calendar
12 large illustrations for each month of the year including one for "Robotech the movie" which is the composite image of several cels for the climax of the film. The image was often used for promotional purposes for the film including the press kit photos as seen here.
Robotech Art 3: The Sentinels
Although this book focuses mostly on the aborted Robotech series "Robotech II: The Sentinels", there are a couple of pages here dedicated to "Robotech the movie", mostly character profiles and a story outline. However both differ slightly to what is in the actual film.
Robotech Art 3: The Sentinels - Limited Hardcover Edition
Limited to 1,000 copies, this hardcover edition version of the book comes with a slipcase and is hand signed and numbered by Carl Macek.
Robotech: The Masters' Gambit
Sort of, but not really a novelisation of "Robotech the movie" by Jack McKinney, which is a pseudonym for authors James Luceno and Brian Daley. In the novel, most of the elements are there, but the MODAT 5 seems to have been replaced by a group of hackers who help stop the Robotech Masters' plot.
Robotech the movie Comics
A two part comic adaptation of "Robotech the movie" by writer Benny R. Powell and artist Chia-Chi Wang. While the first issue borrowed heavily from the movie, according to Powell, at the request of the publisher the story in the second comic diverted from the source material. A Spanish language version of the comic was also released in Argentina.
