Re: [UC 0096] Restrictions on Defenser Use?

I don't know about any official sources, but I have some ideas as to why. For one, the Defensor packs can be highly destructive, thus can't be used just everywhere. The other thing is the packs might give off a Titans-like oppressive feel (think of a modern day military parade). Gundam SEED also had...

Re: Which series has "cornerstone" mecha designs?

Thought of some others. If you also want to include sentient, then Transformers is also quite cornerstone. I personally also like the units from Muv-Luv a lot, although not sure if you could call it cornerstone. Also not cornerstone at all, I really like the Jinki:Extend mecha, especially Moribito 0...

Re: Which series has "cornerstone" mecha designs?

I am not much into the Super Robot lore, but I do have some ideas. For Real Robot I would say Macross/Robotech, Full Metal Panic!, VOTOMS and Code Geass are mandatory. For Super you can't ignore the Brave series, as much as I personally dislike it. Super Robot Wars does a nice job of combining the d...

Re: Mecha and Mufflers

Very interesting discussion. The early Riveni/Savage from Full Metal Panic! might also have had mufflers. I think some flashbacks featured the older diesel ones. There is one more Gundam unit with wheels I would like to get the math on, Adele Mk-II . I think it might have even more insane ground pre...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk

Just saw the OP again, I noticed the Gehreil, the MS that predated the Graze, is in the background with the Landman Rodi's fighting... I'm guessing Tekkadan hired some mercenaries to help. Although its pretty fuzzy to see. Damn, great spotting there, completely missed it beforehand. Maybe Tekkadan ...

Re: the use of OYW era in the EF side....

The GM Striker's were stand-in for the GM II Semi Striker mostly. The Aqua GM was One Year War era though, but not really high spec or anything. I thought Guntank II was from slightly after the One Year War though, but it did use that era of tech. But for those exceptions I thought they were just st...

Re: Which Anime is it?

From your description I directly thought of Tekkaman Blade, of which the dub was called Teknoman.

I happen to encounter a lot of people searching for it around here, since they only aired a few episodes, before parents complained and got it's broadcast discontinued.

Hope this helps.

Re: Try TV special annnounced for August

Twitter says there will be more information at the Shizuoka Hobby Show (as far as I could decipher from the Google Translate device translation). I am quite excited for this. Surely hope that we shall see Gundam Leopa...

Re: O'Neill cylinder model

It is also on HLJ: http://www.hlj.com/product/WAVKM-11 Sadly it is currently discontinued, which usually indeed drives the price of available ones up. But they are such a big player, if they get enough requests for it, they occasionally enforce reprints. Very great find though, I had no idea such mo...

Re: Personal Reviews on these sites? (Trustworthy Sites)

The best site for sure is HobbyLink Japan . It has a large selection and restocks often, plus standard lower prices. Sadly I cannot give you any reviews on most of those other sites, since many do not ship to my location (The Netherlands). A lot of people also use GG Infinite , but I have no experie...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk I

Bad news:
The Official Site reported that Hirose Masashi, the VA of Ral-san, fell ill.
I wonder if they will replace him and let Ral be voiced by someone else.
Or a last minute rewrite/replace with another character, like Aker-san for example.

I was wondering if anyone on the forum here got either or both of the Mercury Lev Magazine Exclusives ? One was with the March issue of Gundam ACE and the other with the March issue of Dengeki Hobby . I am asking this because I would love to have the manual scans of the both of them. And sadly I did...

Pre-order from GAME and you get the original Bearguy to use. Pre-order basically anywhere else and get an extra level where you face off with Char and Johnny.

Well look at all the kits that exist in universe already like Lumber gundam and Shy-tarn Shy-Tarn actually does have a model. But yes, I am very curious about what scale the Apsalus III will be. But to be honest, I don't like the overkill of units that don't even have models. I would like it if the...

Any word on the number of episodes? According to some people the blu-ray box set is coming at the end of March, though I don't have a source on that. If so, that leaves room for like... what, 24 episodes, and that's if they show a new one during the last week of March? This is the source. It does m...
