*** It still received an unedited US release though by StreamlinePictures, AnimEigo, ADVFilms (with an uncut dub), Harmony Gold themselves (partnering with A&E/Lionsgate), and in Australia by Madman, but the original series still has yet to see a UK release.

** And then, in ''{{Macross 7}}'', the universe is saved from [[OurVampiresAreDifferent all-powerful empathic vampires]] by a [[ThePowerOfRock rock band]]. Who fly custom made TransformingMecha, controlled by ''guitars''.

* NoExportForYou: A large assortment of absolutely hideous legal snarls between Harmony Gold, Creator/StudioNue, Creator/{{Satelight}}, Creator/TatsunokoProduction, and Big West means that virtually nothing of the ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' series that wasn't incorporated into the original ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' adaptation has seen the light of day outside of Japan[[note]]This also affects fellow sister series ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross Southern Cross]]''[[/note]]. ''MacrossPlus'' apparently got released only due to absolutely ''titanic'' pressure from fans, critics, and other distributors for the parties involved to not completely sit on triple-A-quality material needlessly; the same ''may'' happen to ''MacrossFrontier'' (especially with the [=DVDs=] and soundtracks of that show pushing sales numbers not seen in at least a decade) but so far no plans for export have been announced (and as time grinds on, it begins to look less and less likely). ''{{Macross7}}'', ''MacrossZero'' and various video-game projects and the like stalled out completely and will almost certainly never see release overseas.

*** On a side note, Tommy Yune, representative for Harmony Gold, has stated that they're willing to license ''MacrossZero'' and sublicense it to Creator/ADVFilms, but Big West took the license off the market.

*** This legal snarl has caused some severe issues with the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' franchise. FASA had bought (or they believed they had bought) rights to the designs in good faith, and used the designs without molestation for 10 years[[note]]In case you're wondering, the Valkyrie in its various variants became the Phoenix Hawk, Stinger, Wasp, Crusader and Valkyrie 'Mechs, the Glaug became the Marauder, and the Destroids became the Warhammer, Archer, Rifleman and Longbow. The Regult, while providing the basis for the Ostscout, Ostroc and Ostsol -- though those three were so radically changed in the translation from Macross to Battletech that they are officially considered by Catalyst to be original art and safe to use [[/note]]. However, FASA and Creator/PlaymatesToys got into a legal battle when Playmates created a toy for their ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'' line that closely resembled the ''[=MadCat=]'' 'Mech from ''Battletech'' (at the time, FASA was finalizing both toy and TV deals for their game). FASA sued. Harmony Gold had sublicensed ''Robotech'' to Playmates as a tie-in to ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'', and noticed that FASA was using the ''Macross'' designs and counter-sued. Nobody quite knows what the actual settlement in the cases were, but [[WordOfGod official word from Catalyst Game Labs, FASA's successor company]] is that the discontinuation of the ''Macross'', ''LightNovel/CrusherJoe'' and ''Anime/FangOfTheSunDougram'' (the latter two which were not owned in any way by HG) designs was an internal decision by FASA to bar all artwork not created in-house to avoid any potential legal hassles, and not a legal mandate from a court. This policy, funnily enough, also forced FASA to stop using designs made bespoke for them by ''Studio Nue'' (the original studio behind ''Macross'') to replace the offending designs for releases of ''BattleTech'' in Japan.

* ''SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' and its spinoffs. The key to defeating the unstoppable millions-strong fleet of [[CloningBlues clone troop alien warriors]] is the music of a [[IdolSinger civilian pop singer]]...who lives on the eponymous fortress in a city hastily reconstructed inside a cargo hold after a teleportation accident.

*** This legal snarl has caused some severe issues with the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' franchise. When that was new, much of the game was found to be copyright infingement of the ''Robotech'' franchise. Despite a massive redesign, they keep getting sued occasionally. The confusing part is that nobody knows if the entities suing them still have any rights to the IP whatsoever. **** Not quite true. FASA had bought (or they believed they had bought) rights to the designs in good faith, and used the designs without molestation for 10 years.
