I actually remember these. Not for the Robotech line, but rather for the reused molds for Exo-Squad toys.

ROBOTECH... TO THE RESCUE!
The horrible, inconsistent rhyming numbs my brain, but I am curious to see what's inside the Robotech Wars video. Caminante?

Except me and all my friends and every other male kid around my age I knew ALL watched Robotech.

You clearly were born too late if you think no one watched Robotech. Hell, I didn't get to see it until the mid-90's when it played on Toonami, but even then half the kids on my school got hooked on it.
20 foot tall blue aliens who are afraid of music.

Or born too early. These commercials are from the 80s, when the toys came out and when the show first came out but only in syndication on about five or six local stations in the entire damn country. (Bonus star for nostalgia.)
OK, to be fair, I remember there being a pretty long gap between the toys being released and American TV showing the series, so a lot of kids probably didn't know quite what to make of the toys for a while.
I used to know some guys who had a band that did a song about it when Roy Fokker died...
Oh, um, LONG-DEFUNCT band. Pre-internet.

I was going to give this two stars until I got to THE WOMEN OF ROBOTECH (note that there is only one woman.)
They were really reaching to get these sold, huh?

I dont remember the SDF-1 having a trap door...
I think the robotech wars video was just 60 minutes of fighting so kids didnt have to use their imaginations.

I really like the rhyming. That helps me remember the epic poem that is Robotech.

Here's a funny story: In high school, a girl I knew let me borrow all of her VHS tapes full of the entire Robotech series she recorded off of the TV. In return, I let her borrow all of my Tenchi Muyo tapes, because the same voice actress who did Minmei's English voice also did Mihoshi's English voice.
Several years later, I realized that she had a big crush on me, but I was too dense to realize it.
