Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Really there's only one thing I care about with regards to these movies.
Are there any new songs, or is it the same ones that were already in the series?
Because as disappointing IMO as Delta was overall, the songs were mostly pretty great.

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

So quite a while back, after I finished with the custom lineart of the Sinanju Kai(my MG Sinanju/Stein mod), I started to use the larger, hi-res lineart from the Unicorn TV site to put together better images of my custom Unicorn/Banshee MG mod as well.
I never did finish it, though...until now.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Okay, so I saw the mech and character designs on the site yesterday before I watched the preview/prologue. So you can imagine my reaction when I saw a catgirl...and then a rodent in uniform. And then when I realized that Sho Hayami was voicing the aforementioned rodent, that was kind of baffling. Bu...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

I'm actually not a huge fan of most of the mech designs I've seen on the site or in the prologue so far. That GM III variant isn't too bad, but I really don't like...well, any of the three 00-based designs. And that Kapool is just weird . I mean, I get that they're going for something cutesy like th...

Go for it.
As an aside, I have to admit I was surprised at how well the GM Command's head fits on 0 Gundam's body

Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

Long-clan OZ-00MS Tallgeese [/url], as seen in Episode Zero and Glory of the Losers volume 2. Put that together last night using Tallgeese and Leo Early Type lineart. I thought about recoloring the pic of it that's in GotL vol2, but decided to put together a modified version of Tallgeese's old offi...

Re: Custom Lineart Request Thread 8th Edition

Can't promise any regularity, but since I had a little time for once, I figured I might as well pitch in. So, take the GN-000 0 Gundam , remove the head and replace it with either the head of the GN-00902 SEM or one of the heads of the various RGM-79 GM variants whichever works better. Also maybe re...

Yeah, I remember the “disco guns”. It was actually almost hilarious just how goofy they looked and how glaringly obvious it was that this was a bad, quick-and-dirty editing job.

Re: Gundam sellers on blu-ray

Well, my only recent experience in that regard was via Amazon; I was able to get a decently-priced copy of the Japanese release of Unicorn vol7 on Blu-Ray(ordered it very recently, hasn't arrived yet). Back in the day, I bought all of the first 6 volumes from Rightstuff and thought they were a littl...

Re: 'iconic' Amuro Rey suit In Zeta

I don’t know if they made a HGUC kit of it - pretty sure they haven’t, though I could be wrong - but a couple years back they did release a pretty nice 1/100-scale kit

Re: 'iconic' Amuro Rey suit In Zeta

In the show Amuro only ever piloted two mobile suits that I can recall: A RMS-099 Rick Dias(IIRC in the standard black color scheme) and the closely related MSK-008 Dijeh.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Overall, I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. I did have some criticisms, the biggest one being of that one early WTF??!!! scene...but I enjoyed the movie. Quite a body count, though, in terms of named characters...and yet the one casualty that ticked me off the most was a minor character who barely get...

Re: TV Tropes lists ZoE's Jehuty as a super prototype, even though it isn't

Ditto. I sometimes sorta cheated when I was writing papers for school in that if I found useful information, I would check for a citation in the Wikipedia article. If there was one and the source was listed and appeared credible, I simply cited the same source. But most of the time I used Wikipedia ...

Re: The Last Jedi

I am studiously avoiding any and all articles on the subject of the movie for now, because I definitely want to see it at some point and I'm trying to steer clear of potential spoilers. Word is that, from what little I've heard from pre-screening responses, the movie is substantially better than The...

Re: TV Tropes lists ZoE's Jehuty as a super prototype, even though it isn't

As I understand it, a prototype is the next step in the developmental process, in the sense that it is an attempt to incorporate technologies into a unit that is suitable for mass production. If the prototype is deemed a success, then the unit enters mass production. Often times, unlike in anime, a ...

Re: How can OZ mass-produce Virgos with Gundanium Alloy?

I don't think that alone explains it. Epyon is made from Gundanium alloy, and was produced and manufactured entirely separately from Mercurius/Vayeate and the Virgo. Additionally, according to GotL, the transport aircraft Heero destroyed early in Wing(after he repaired Wing by cannibalizing parts fr...
