This Week in CRNews: Macross Anniversary Edition

Hot news, big features, and stories you may have missed!

With the 30th anniversary of The Super Dimension Fortress Macross in full effect, we've seen a few big news items coming through that focus on the classic series. Just get a load of that life-sized Valkyrie! I'd like to see it in a showdown with the full-scale Gundam, but I don't think the world is ready yet. Anyway, in the spirit of the anniversary, let us know your favorite Macross memories, series*, and more in the comments beyond the recap!

 

Below you'll find a bevy of hot stories, features and video posted throughout the week. But that's not all. We've also compiled a few stories we missed, so be sure to check those out, as well.
