Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

According to an interview with the author of Gundam Thunderbolt, it would seem that it is not canon (or more rather its part of its own canon, much like The Origin): "**CS**: Aside from director Tomino 1, you don’t hear many people involved with Gundam talking about “destroying Gundam.” **YO**: I’m ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

I still feel like this game is worth a launch purchase unless there's some outside factor hampering your spending money. Sure, some of the omissions are annoying, but the beauty of a game with almost 100 characters to choose from is that there's bound to be something that tickles your fancy. You ca...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

Supposedly, Haman was intentionally keeping back most of Axis forces for the upcoming battle from whoever emerged victorious at the end of the Gryps war between the AEUG sand the Titans. When Axis is on collision course with the Gate Of Zedan, the AEUG is surprised to see many lights (ships) leaving...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

The more I look at the RX-160G, the more I'm inclined to think it is a sort of middle step between the original RX-160 and the RX-160S: it has the feet and hands of the original, but it adds the rear leg thrusters of the custom model. The added propellant tank + thrusters on the back of the Isolde a...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

MA model designations have each their own numbering: MA: MA-04X MA-05 MA-06 MA-08 MA-09 MAM-07 MAN-00X-2 MAN-03 MAN-05 MAN-08 MAX-03 The Braw Bro and Adzam share the same number, and so does the Bigro & Gromlin as well as the Big Zam and Elmeth. On second though, it would seem that it's just the MAN...

Re: Which series has "cornerstone" mecha designs?

On the table is the plan for one which consists of insect-like creatures controlled by hive minds. I've got Warhamemr 40k, Aliens, and Starship Trooper for my inspiration, but is there any anime which shows mecha fighting against biological alien life forms (other than Muv-Luv)? I think Blue Gender...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

Well, looking at the overall design, I'm inclined to say that the shape was inspired by the Zakrello: Remove the claws & missile launchers, close the mouth, replace the eyes with a mono eye, and you end up with something similar. In particular the thrusters hint at this: both the Elmeth and Zakrello...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Anime Thread Mk I

I doubt that however Full Frontal was created, it involved retrieving data from the Sazabi wreckage: leaving aside that it would have been difficult to do so with the EF's surveillance, I would presume that any relevant data would have likely been located on the Sazabi's cockpit, which was ejected w...

Re: RCX-76 Guncannon: Why did it suck so bad?

the only real compedeter for the GM cannon line was the RX-77D Guncannon MP- type a scaled down version of the RX-77-2 but lacked Parts compatibility. I wouldn't call the RX-77D a scaled down version of the Guncannon, but rather a naturally more modern approach, with higher emphasis on mobility and...

Re: Another Nod At The MS-14JG & RMS-117(MS-17B) Siblings

Wait? So is there any part commonality between the Galbady Alpha and the Gyan? And secondly, is Pezun not really a manufacturer but instead a research lab? For all of their MS that they have designed and I could recall are prototype: Galbaldy Alpha, Gasshia. Even the Gyan (or at least the Gyan Eos ...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

It was mentioned in Gundam Century: While the combination of the Elmeth and its bits was extremely powerful, it required the pilot to have a high degree of Newtype ability. Large numbers of bits went missing during practical tests, and it is recorded that the first prototype unit exploded after its ...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

The background of the AMX-011S unit that appears actually might change our previous assumptions on the development of this particular model. But before addressing that issue I wanted to quickly point out a mechanical error in the series: the AMX-011S seems to have the stock S-type head, which ironic...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

After seeing the complete roster of the base game I can officially say I'm skipping this game at launch.

I do will be checking what DLC units are added later on.

Re: Another Nod At The MS-14JG & RMS-117(MS-17B) Siblings

The Galbady Alpha and the Gelgoog competed to become Zeon's next front-line MS, right? So how did data regarding each of these machine was leaked and influenced their opponents? No, the Gyan and Gelgoog were the ones competing, and the Gelgoog won. The Galbaldy Alpha is said to be the result of pro...

Re: Haman's Obsession and Axis/Neo Zeon's Newtype Drought

Agree on most accounts, though I want to point out that while Haman's faction did succeeded at developing Cyber-newtypes (or at the very least improve their faulty newtypes: Mashymre and Chara), this happened very late into the 1st Neo Zeon War. Also, Haman seemed overall unaware of Glemy's mass pro...

Re: Haman's Obsession and Axis/Neo Zeon's Newtype Drought

I must admit I'm likely not up to date on the retcons that could have occurred to the canon as far as what did the EF actually managed to capture from the Principality of Zeon's newtype research and weapons, specially anything that didn't show up in animated works. AFAIK, originally the EF only mana...
