Happy Launch Day!

Today is Macross launch day!
According to the Macross timeline, the ship crash-lands on South Ataria island in 1999. It takes humanity ten years to rebuild the ship and adapt it for human operation, so in Februari 2009 (today!), the ship is launched.

I guess the timeline we live in has taken another path, and that's actually fine with me -- Macross Launch Day is also the date of the first attack of the Zentradi on Earth. I'm quite OK with not being stuck on a planet that gets bombarded into being a lifeless husk, actually.

There is a Macross: The Super Dimension Space Launching Ceremony today in Akihabara. Seems like it would have been a good opportunity to stock up on the latest merchandise, as well as the 1:2000 scale model of the SDF-1.
