How to sum up Macross? Well those of you who are 1980 savy (not sure if they were around in the 70s though) will remember the transforming robot phenomenon that was 'Transformers'. Well Macross is that but far cooler. Airplanes resembling F14 lookalikes, transforming first into 'gerwalk' mode (plane with mini-arms and legs sticking out) to full humanoid form. There have been many versions made over the many years, some have become favourites while others haven't been popular.
