Re: Harmony Gold vs Tatsunoko

It feels like they saw how World events managed to buy out Golion from toei and thought they had the same leverage. the only diffrence was that Golion bombed hard in Japan Macross is basically a major franchise in Japanese sci-fi.

Re: Harmony Gold vs Tatsunoko

I am indebted to Seto Kaiba for the behind-the-scenes financial shell game that has shorted HG for real productive work. The Agrama family are a real piece of work. I suppose having a "Hollywood company" is a good tax dodge, but it sure has screwed all of us for nigh on 30 years. Yeah, though they'...

Re: I have got a strange feeling about the EFSF's budget on weapon development

So, we've discussed how much does an MS cost before in this forum. Reading through that old threat suddenly gave me a strange thought - that the EFSF suffers from a chronic case of overbudgeting when it comes to weapon development. How many prototypes and limited-production MS did the EFSF (plus th...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

On the official Youtube release, at 2:26 on the video, you see what seems to be a reflection of a purple Jegan holding some manner of weird beam weapon that I'm totally unfamiliar with. Anyone have any clue as to what that thing is holding? According to this page from the Premium Bandai website, th...

Re: The obsoletion of MS-manned gun emplacements

The gun platforms were more to provide heavy battleship like beam cannons to early UC MS mainly due to there own internal reactors being unable to power them so a platform base was needed to house the Guns reactor and to move the gun. the Mega Rider was more of an evolution of the Mega Bazooka Launc...

during that final battle the Epyon system was hooked to the MD control comupter converting them from robots acting on a scripted combat system to something like UC era Bits and the units introduced in Gundam X the Bit Mobile Suits.

Re: GN Drive Tau particle colors?

it's how the GN-T drives are calibrated the Red particles are drives optimized for Beam weapons and are harmful to humans the later drives fixed this and had orange particles. the particles on the Alvaaron/ Alvatore were gold because of cosmetics Alejandro Corner really liked gold.

It dos't help that the HyGogg was desgined in the production time line until after CCA was produced and it wasent there to be based on when the Axis units were being drawn up. so we have an unit that untill 0080 came out would have been based just on the Gogg with an added unit between the two addin...
