Reader Mark Munoz
found an intriguing Mospeada
-related image on the Macross World
forums and sent it along. Unfortunately, I'm not the Japanese language expert in the family -- that would be my sister
-- so I have no worldly clue what this is. He suggested maybe Mospeada 2
designs, or something Tatsunoko did for Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles 2
, but it doesn't look official to me -- more like a game of "what if" or "redesign the mecha" being played in an issue of Hobby Japan
or something. Notice that for some reason the TLEAD/Tread is being referred to as a DREAD, which suggests a lack of familiarity with the material, and that the large image of the redesign looks AWFULLY rough and lop-sided. I would think something designed to give us a taste of a new series would be a little sharper and more polished.
