Re: What's Your Avatar, Mk IV

I decided I'd been using Asmodai long enough, so I changed it to Exia. Shot taken from OP 1, shows it discharging GN particles in a fashion similar to a scaled-down version of 0 Gundam's GN Feathers - which it never did in the series, but looks damn cool.

Re: GUNDAM BUILD FIGHTERS english DUB

Eh. I've already said everything I wanted to say on both shows in the corresponding previous threads, so not gonna get into it again. I'm just gonna take a minute to comment on my opinion of the two dubs. I took a look at BF's first, mainly because Reiji LOLstomping that dweeb with the Gyan at the e...

Re: What's Your Avatar, Mk IV

Technically, it's a recolor of the ASW-G-01 Gundam Bael from IBO. What it's actually meant to depict is ASW-G-32 Gundam Asmodai, a custom I did around the same time I did the screenshot recolor I use as an avatar.

While I think that's a good cast with plenty of talent, you just couldn't pay me to care about Seed anymore.
That, right there, pretty much sums up my opinion as well on the subject.

Re: Knight's & Magic

I actually think I prefer the animated series designs to the ones in the links MythSearcher posted. Especially for the ones Ernesti personally was involved in - IMO, they look much more like something a reincarnated mecha otaku would come up with than the designs in those links, which look more IMO ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

That's about right, yeah. Though in their case, it isn't a completely separate entity doing the second phase of the development. Most of the YF-24 Evolution derivatives are developed in partnership with Shinsei Industry's branch offices, just like the F-2 was developed in partnership with General D...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Wow, that is fascinating . It also kind of makes a decent amount of sense that the later-developed YF-24-based models are locally-developed variants based on a pre-existing fighter in the Federal arsenal. In real-world terms, as I understand it, aircraft like the VF-25, VF-31, etc...basically are eq...

Re: Pilot curriculum

The specific question I have regarding the issue(and which FP was asking about) pertains exclusively to pilots who have been trained in and have experience piloting which is exclusively limited to space and space colonies- which I would imagine falls into to the latter category. Piloting a mobile su...

Re: Pilot curriculum

That's an interesting question. I mean, distances, height, etc...those things are absolute in and of themselves. But someone who has spent their entire life in space and in a colony, who has never experienced Earth, will in all likelihood have a different viewpoint on how those things affect and pla...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

My level of interest in this is approximately equal to my expectations for it in terms of the quality of the product - which is to say, much like Kaiba, not high. I'll probably check it out just to see, but unless they go the Frontier route and go for a totally different ending, I doubt given the la...

Re: GUNDAM BUILD FIGHTERS : BATTLOGUE/GM's Counterattack

It also has a trio of shoulder mounted Funnels, it can take off its shoulder armor and attach it to its fist giving it better close-range power. Duly noted - the thing on its shield that looks like a spare bazooka magazine is indeed a funnel container, and it can use the shoulder armor as a boxing ...

Re: GUNDAM BUILD FIGHTERS : BATTLOGUE/GM's Counterattack

I haven't seen the episode yet, so I can't comment on that. As for the mech design...I'm almost disappointed by the Ballistic Zaku, TBQH. For a supposed successor to the Zaku Amazing, it's singularly underwhelming because it's really just a stock Origin-ver MS-06S, except for that admittedly awesome...

Re: How can your average Ace earn his special MS?

Even IF such a procedure existed, I seriously doubt individual pilots would be able to request them. I think it is far more likely that provided there is a hypothetical procedure for a regular forces pilot to be assigned a new model, this would be done by the unit Commanding Officer and/or other ran...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Despite the light novel origin, the anime is coming across very shounen manga in its presentation, if one could accept a shounen manga hero who has already completed his development & is leading the struggle. Those kinds of Shounen heroes would be refreshing at this point, imo. Amen to that. I thin...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Yeah, that was pretty hilarious. I can't wait to see what the next step is, though I think we've already all seen where all of Ernesti's efforts will be leading up to in the end just going from the OP/ED video sequences. That said, can't wait to see that actually happen, either.

Re: Knight's & Magic

I actually don't know. Of course, I also don't know how much time has elapsed between episodes, so I just assumed that enough time had gone by between Eps 3 and 4 that they were able to build a handful of additional new units. I do agree that things seem to be accelerating plot-wise. Can't wait to s...

As for the question of whether or not these figures are official...I don't have that book, so I can't say for sure. Now, the GameFAQs thread rapidly devolves into an argument over the length of the Battle in Alaska, so let's ignore that completely - though one guy apparently did the math and came up...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

According to SK's post above, the VF-25 Messiah apparently narrowly exceeds the performance of the VF-31A/B Kairos, with the souped-up VF-31 Siegfrieds being approximately on par with the -25. That's kinda surprising, IMO. OTOH, the -25 is, IIRC, more or less exclusive to the Frontier Fleet, and I h...
