I don't even get why they hold onto it, I think the last time they did anything with the property was like 15 years ago.

Royalties, man, royalties. They still license out the old Robotech series for streaming.

Its less 'why is Harmony Gold still holding onto the rights' and more 'Why the fuck did Tatsunoko give them the option to renew in the first place?'

In all likelihood, spite was probably a deciding factor in all of this.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
