Robert's Anime Cel Collection

I got my start with Japanese Anime in the late 70's, when I came home from school and eagerly watched Speed Racer (Mach Go Go Go - re-runs of course), and then came Starblazers (Space Battleship Yamato - remember Wild Star??). But I did not officially become an Otaku until Robotech (Macross) aired in 1985. Wow, I was hooked. Later, as Anime started to become widely available in the U.S., and I started to explore the great variety of titles and subject matter, and found a variety of subject matter that far surpassed anything that would ever have imagined. But even with all of this, I always found myself coming home to Macross. It is what I compare all other anime to. I have and still feel that Macross was one of the finest Anime series ever made, and that Macross DYRL, Macross Plus, and Macross II (well...) are fine works that continue in that great tradition, and carry on the Macross message.

My Cel Collection
I collect cels because of my love of Japanese animation. When I started collecting anime cels, I was surprised to find out how expensive good cels from some of the most popular series were. I discovered quickly that collecting is an excellent way to whittle away that retirement fund, so I decided that I was going to try and collect only the very best character cels that I could find. Of course my favorite Anime character is Misa Hayase (a.k.a. Lisa Hayes). I was not surprised to find that Macross cels in general are extremely difficult to find for sale, and Misa cels are even harder to locate. 

But as a collector I am persistent.....and very, very patient.....

The following are a few of the cels currently in my collection.  Please note that they are NOT for sale.

Note: Unless you have broadband internet access (DSL, Cable, T-1) this page will take several minutes to load, so please be patient.
