I went to the California State Fair today (July 31st) and met Tommy Yune, Svea Macek, and Tony Oliver! Tommy Yune is the creative director at Harmony Gold. Svea Macek is Carl Macek’s wife and was an art director at Harmony Gold. Tony Oliver was the voice actor of Rick Hunter in Robotech.
If anyone goes tomorrow, you’ll find them in Building 5, which houses the “Get Animated” exhibit, which also has exhibits on the history of animation. The building is one of about 10 stone-colored buildings.
There’s the upper half of the SDF-1 on display, as well as a big blue alpha fighter.
Below the SDF-1 is a large display case.
There’s also a poster honoring the late Carl Macek.
Finally, if you’re going tomorrow, be prepared for the hot sun! It’s in the low- to mid-90’s! Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Here’s info on robotech.com: http://robotech.com/news/viewarticle.php?id=420 They’ll be there starting at noon.
