Genesis Climber Mospeada: Complete Art Works

Today, we’re looking at an artwork book on the third series in the Robotech TV series, Genesis Climber Mospeada!  This is my second favorite of the three series, because it reminds me of the movie, Red Dawn, where the main group of characters are trying to survive even though their homeland has been invaded.  I am also drawn to Mospeada because of the transformable motorcycles called cyclones, and the fighter plane mecha, the alpha and beta fighters!

This is a softcover book, with 155 pages of Mospeada goodness!  There are mecha drawings:

There are pictures of actual toys!

And pictures of the 1/10 Beagle cyclones:

Finally, if you like looking at pencil sketches, there are plenty!

I especially like the following one, because it shows how an Invid fits inside its shock-trooper armor:

Finally, this book has some really nice sketches of the sets and characters from each episode!

Michael Bradley sang Lancer’s songs.  Here’s a tribute to Lancer’s song, “Lonely Soldier Boy”!  Someone recorded this live performance!  Enjoy!!
