* DevelopmentHell: ''Robotech'' is one of the longest film development projects even to be stuck in the 7th circle of development hell. Many screenwriters, directors, and leading actors have been rumored to be connected to the project -- but no live action films have been released.\\
The main problem is the red tape, particularly copyright. Some fans of the anime ''Robotech'' was stitched together from object to the project on principle. Being a patchwork also causes problems with internal logic.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The plot of the Robotech Movie was once going to be vastly different, but had to be changed drastically once the creators of Macross realized this movie could somehow interfere with their profits from Do You Remember Love. Somehow.
** The movie was pulled because it was successful with adults but not for the Children demographic which Canon wanted.
* NoExportForYou: Harmony Gold's the reason why all Macross stuff aside from MacrossPlus haven't been released in the US.
