The DX VF-1 Strike Parts sold out very quickly too. After people assured me that it would be days before it would happen. :/

I did find an old english dub of MOSPEADAs first episode. Its certainly different.

Despite now having the full 90's VHS collection of ROBOTECH, as well as at least 3 sets of the DVD releases, I regret only getting the first 2 disks of Macross when ADV brought it out. At the time, Best Buy was known for carrying the collected box sets later, and quickly putting them on clearance, so I decided to wait. Then forgot about it.
It looks like back in 2014 there was an Amazon.com release that had ROBOTECH as well as the ADV sub and dub of Macross in it, so missed out there, too.
Vic did throw me off as well, as I had been so used to Tony Oliver as Rick, and while neither are deep voices, they are definitely distinct.
Dunno, though. I would PROBABLY try to watch a dub of Macross 7 if it ever came out, but I fear that, even with my favorite voice actors, I would still despise the two main characters and have that annoy me throughout...

i remember having some vhs of macross saga in the late 80s. they were from fhe (family home entertainment). they were edited to hell and back, and then edited again for good measure. id say at least half of the series was cut out and it seemed to focus on the war part of the show. as an example, the episode "a rainy night" had only the first and last 5 minutes of the episode (possibly even less). everything with roy and claudias younger days was axed. it was ridiculous and a waste of money. had i known they were chopped up so much, i wouldnt have gotten them

Back in the day the only local channel that played it aired it at noon when I was at school and no VCR so I only caught an odd episode on days when I was home sick.

Eh, unless they announce some sort of new agreement with Taksunoku (which I don't see as likely given how contentious things have been between them), I don't think anybody cares.
Any anime they MIGHT have access to is likely well expired or not worth the fight. They haven't made any significant production efforts in over a decade. Their reputation has been garbage even longer, so I don't see ANY company willing to work with them.
Of course, they could blindside us all and announce a new agreement to bring Macross out in the states with assistance from Harmony Gold.

Like it could be a last minute cash grab of Blu Ray releases of Robotech.
Some sort of ill conceived plot to continue Robotech without the Tatsunoko shows.
Or something far more sinister. "We don't care what Tatsunoko says, we own this stuff forever and will fight of extradition in our heavily armed bunker!"
