Not necessarily the main mechas, but the enemies and support mechas from
Macross were rather huge and bulgy and stuff like that. Some had guns where
they shouldn't have! I think some design tries to outdo that, but then
again, that could be my own opinion.

In Asia, it's usually bigger is better, at least in Japan and Korea. that
may explain things a bit more.
