That my friend, is a very long and convoluted list. If you mean stuff available on Blu Ray, I can't help you. I'm trying to find that information out myself (why I'm in this thread) but if you mean in general, there's a ton of stuff available.
If you are a Macross/Robotech fan you must immediately search out a copy of Macross Plus on DVD. After that, go to the web and try to find Macross Zero and Macross Frontier. Fansubs can be found in the usual places. All three of those series are phenomenal
especially if you are a fan of Macross to begin with. Frontier is currently my favorite Macross series and one of my top anime of all time and trust me when I say I've seen an ass-ton of anime.
And what is it you don't like about Gundam? Is it Gundam Wing you don't like, because there's SOOOOOO much more to Gundam than that. I recommend Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory (excellent!), Char's Counterattack, Zeta Gundam and Gundam 0079: 8th MS Team.
I also recommend Full Metal Panic. Good mecha action in that series.
Do you happen to like Superhero mecha as well? In that category I recommend Dangaio (avoid the dubbed version though...its terrible) Hades Project Zeorymer, Gunbuster and its sequel Diebuster, Gravion and its continuation Gravion Zwei, Neon Genesis Evangelion (though I'm sure you've probably seen this already) and thats just the short list.
