"Robotech" is set to return for a new generation of audiences as Funimation brings the franchise to its service later this fall.
Funimation will be premiering 85 episodes of the series - told over three sagas - this fall on its streaming service worldwide (except Japan) and will debut a collector's edition box set on Blu-ray in Dolby Digital on September 28 and through a series of licensed product partnerships.
The "Robotech" home entertainment collector's edition, available exclusively on Funimation Shop, contains all 85 episodes of the series, all remastered for the first time on Blu-ray. The remastering will be faithful to the preceding DVD box set release and retain a classic "film grain." The collector's edition also includes:
- An exclusive Variant Transforming “Robotech” - Roy Fokker’s VF-1S;
- An exclusive Variant Action Figure - Roy Fokker in Pilot Uniform Variant Shade of Black; and
- A series of "Robotech"-embroidered patches.
"'Robotech' is a beloved series and an integral part of anime history," says Mitchel Berger, senior vice president, commerce, Funimation Global Group. "It's a wonderful opportunity to engage the original passionate fans from decades ago and also expose a whole new generation to this classic series."
