Re: Custom Lineart Request Thread 8th Edition

If I could get this AGE-FX with the blue on the forearms, head, waist (the parts wrapping around the abdomen below the A) and rear thighs done in red I'd really appreciate it. Just the front shot would be more than enough.

Re: Jet fighters no more, why stop using them?

One Specific example doesn't really address my question at all. It tells us one Zeon Helicopter was unable to destroy this particular mobile suit (which unlike the Zaku has a carry shield and much better armor). It doesn't address how Helicopters might have been employed in a tactical sense or how a...

Re: Godzilla 2014

It was not a somber cinematic masterpiece (like the Original) but it was a great exercise on build up and pay off which set the stage for some promising follow ups. A fun popcorn movie at the very least. The Human characters were pretty bland (with the Exception of Serizawa and the Father) but not a...

Re: Jet fighters no more, why stop using them?

I know this may be slightly off topic, but given it's an extension of the question of Air Power vs Mobile suits in UC, it seems more logical to put it here than start a new topic: What about VTOL craft vs. MS? I don't recall seeing many pure VTOL craft depicted in early UC (outside of one spy plane,...

Re: Valvrave the Liberator thread Mk II

This episode gave us a lot of answers about Runes and how they relate to the Valvraves' functionality. It's pretty safe to say Valvrave I's Incredible performance likely had to do with how many runes were being drawn from the pilot. We also have one concrete source for those Runes in the form of mem...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

Of course it does, as it affects his public image. Isn't that what we're talking about? My point is that Durandal could still manipulate the media to justify his action in front of the public regardless of his true intentions. Guess what, so far as we know he never tried to justify the use of Requi...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

It does matter because, as far as everyone else is concerned, he has yet to make an unprovoked attack against whole civilian areas. No it doesn't, whether everyone knew ahead of time or not doesn't change his intent or actions. In fact it almost makes matters worse that he didn't issue an ultimatum...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

And Zala about to fire that third shot is exactly what separates Durandal from him. Yes, Durandal said he will deal with Orb later (which, again, was in a private setting), but until he does more than fire at an oncoming military targets, it still does not put him on the same level as Azrael, Zala,...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

Ok, so three things here: 1. Wasn't Patrick Zala willing to target the entire Earth? How could what Durandal did be comparable? 2. Again, despite the nature of the Requiem, Durandal still only fired at an incoming fleet of warships and military base of a nation who has done much worse. So I doubt D...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

WMDs can strike indiscriminately without giving the attacked side the option to resist in any way. It's either a tyrant's ultimate enforcer or a tool of genocide. The ONLY condition where I would condone their use would be when using such a thing is the difference between annihilation and survival (...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

I'm pretty sure Durandal stated quite openly that anyone who opposed the Destiny Plan were Enemies of mankind. Can't get much more explicit than that. (though I do not recall how publicly this was stated) I still do not believe that is provocation enough to use A WMD, not when ZAFT has trounced the ...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

The war might as well be over with anyone of apparent note in LOGOS dead as of Daedalus. (Haven't you noticed the CE Universe's favorite game is follow the batZOINKS crazy leader) There was the Federation President who was pretty explicitly said to be a puppet so who knows what he'd do with his stri...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

Event if you have good reason to suspect the fleet is Hostile that's no reason to respond preemptively with a weapon of Mass destruction. It is justification to deploy your own forces and justification to ready whatever you might call defensive measures. If the fleet had declared continued hostile i...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

And that's exactly what happened. The AF made a move and Durandal fired the Requiem. (He had already declared LOGOS/AF leaders as enemies of humanity before.) By the time he had requiem LOGOS and the AF lacked any sort of leadership. A fleet was launching but I certainly don't recall said fleet mak...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

Save the Three Ships Alliance Durandal had every trump card in his hand at that point. He can afford to let the AF make a move, there's basically nothing they can do to him. Once they do he has grounds to declare them enemies of Humanity and the right to fire up Messiah or requiem. Before this the o...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

The reason for the change was because the time was right. Durandal bid his time until he acquired the Requiem. After that, it was simply a matter of eliminating most of what's left of the AF's remaining forces, who are still on the attack, while minimizing the casualty on ZAFT's side. With that out...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk II

The biggest issue with Durandal is that at the end of this series his entire modis oderandai winds up changing. He spends the whole series manipulating and setting-up his space communist master plan then starts spamming doomsday lasers like -every other CE villain-. He could use the events of the se...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

I'm pretty sure Sunrise/Bandai can override the objections from a TV network to use their own designs as they wish. It sounds like harmony gold class BS to say the network can withhold those rights. If you need a reason they aren't using 00 or AGE designs there's already a very simple one, those ser...
