Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

(A bit of ranting here: How long must we wait until we can see the Star Mirage, Lightning, and Thunderbolt got animated again?) Probably quite a while... if we ever see them again. By the time we saw them animated for the first time in Macross Dynamite 7 (2047), Shinei Industry's VF-5000 Star Mirag...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Everything I've seen thus from friends abroad who were able to take in the film on opening night suggests that there wasn't much actual change to the story from the TV series. It was noted that Messer's death is more drawn out than the TV series version, but only really changes matters in that... ....

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

How advanced is the SDF-1 Macross to the rest of the Protodevlin fleet during its time? Watching 7, I have a feeling it is not something the Protodevlin would sorely miss. Also, why do I think Spiritia are something that exist in a realm of its own, and in the body of each Protoculture people their ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Anyone here watched, or have plan to watch the Delta movie? From Twitter and Google Translate, it seems like they changed the chemistry between Hayate/Freya and Kaname/Messer a bit.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Speaking of Ex-Gear, did Xaos bought the VF-01EX as it was, or did they do custom work to a civilian VF-01? And how long would you bet the VF-01 production line was kept running? I mean, Earth must had made a tons of VF-01 during the war with Zetrandi, but seeing how vast humankind had spread into s...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Say, how would the post-YF-24 Valkyrie fares in ground supression fire and joint-operation with infantry? Could they replace the VA-3? And there is no way anyone would deploy the VB-6 for this role, right? And speaking of canopy, why did the Nightmare Trainer used a different type of canopy from the...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Is it just me, or there is an effort ever since the VF-1 to thinner the waist of successive Valkyries generations? Proportionally... but that's more a function of VFs themselves getting substantially larger, resulting in a taller, longer-limbed battroid. That reminded me of how the bulge at the cen...

Windermere IV is F*CKED. Windermere IV's economy and exports are almost exclusively agricultural.

Re: GUNDAM BUILD DIVERS

I readed that it can change parts according to situation. So once again, I wish they would give it several combo, maybe RabbitJoker or CycloneTank. But since the character is called Riku, there's good chance that it will get Acro Smasher. Oh yeah, I forgot that you are a Kamen Rider fan too That sa...

Re: GUNDAM BUILD DIVERS

Already people have been nagging about "another 00 Gunpla". What do you guys think about Riku's 00 Diver? Personally, while I love 00, it would be nice if we see a Gunpla not based on any MS piloted by Setsuna. It would had been great were Riku used an Arios/Kyrios gunpla based on his admiration of ...

Why the Gouf was chosen for a flying model?

The biggest change to a Flight Type Gouf compared to the standard Gouf beside the new backpack is enlarged leg skirts. That begged the question of why didn't they choose the Dom as the base model in the first place, instead of taking the time to modify Gouf units' legs for testing? Why not just bypa...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

So... Macross Chronicle is the equivalent of MSV and a background book put together, am I right? A few more things I have questions for after reading through that book: 1. How big is the X-9 really? I can't find the numbers, but I always have this impression that the QF-4000 is both smaller and less...

The medical downsides to being a Newtype

Reading through the X-Men comics gave me this idea: Until now we have only seen the "good side" of being a Newtype on the battlefield. But what about real life? Which problems does a person who turned into a Newtype must overcome? (The same with Innovators and X-Rounders) For example, the brain is d...

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 the...

The obsoletion of MS-manned gun emplacements

One little-mentioned piece of mechanics in U.C Gundam that I've always liked is the MS-manned Support Platforms - From the manuever-support like the Dodai and Flying Armor, to gun emplacements like the Burstliner, Skiure, and Mega Rider (which will be the focus of this thread.)
