A Tribute to the Ubiquitous Circular Handle in Macross

Today, we’re giving a tribute to the artwork of Macross, specifically to the ubiquitous circular handle!  We see this handle on the character’s uniforms and helmets.  We also see it all over the veritech fighter.

The handle appears on the upper torso of the jumper-suit uniform, on the back.
