Space Station Liberty: The Roger Harkavy Interview

Just letting you all know, if you're at all interested in the long journey of the lineart files from Genesis Climber Mospeada and Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross (a.k.a. Robotech: The New Generation and The Robotech Masters) that once belonged to model kit manufacturer Imai appearing in the latest issue of Super 7 Magazine from a warehouse in Japan to the hands of Roger Harkavy and hopefully someday ultimately into an official Mospeada and Southern Cross artbook, go pop over to Space Station Liberty and give Chris Meadows's latest interview a listen. This one's only an hour and a half long, and chronicles the story of how all this largely unpublished original art, so much of it unused in the final animation, made it into Harkavy's interested and waiting hands, with the end goal being its publication for all ROBOTECH fans to see.

(Reminder: click here to see one of the images in Roger's treasure trove, the AFC/R-02 ground combat Legioss.)

Roger suggests that if you're interested in seeing this art eventually published, get on the horn and politely suggest to the guys at Harmony Gold via that this is something you want to see, and go out and buy the artbook for Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles tentatively slated for publication in April to let them know that there is, in fact, a market for ROBOTECH-related artbooks. Good advice. In fact, here's an Amazon link, and not even one that sends me a single cent if you click on it. That's how badly I want that artbook. (Mind you, that's also how badly I want to go to bed at this point, but that's neither here nor there ...)

[Edited to fix a model kit manufacturer mix-up. Thank you, anonymous fact-checker! I'd blame it on the fact that I was coming down with the flu when I typed this up originally, but really, I probably would have made the same mistake if I had been in perfect health at the time ...]


  • It's actually Imai. Arii wasn't involved with Mospeada.

  • Just to note: after a technical flaw, I had to replace the episode temporarily with an 18 second clip while I uploaded a fixed version. If you downloaded it before then, please delete it and get the fixed one (split into two 45-minutish pieces) when it's fully uploaded.
