Yeah, MS Gundam is much more consistant in characters than Macross, But The mecha
proportions aren't always that good. When macross animation gets good, like the
dogfight in Pinesalad, or the orbital Bombardment in episode 27 it's much better
than Good old MSG.

Some of the re-animated scenes in the MSG movies are pretty flashy though, like the
Texas colony showdown between Gundam and Gelgoog. Good, good stuff.
