Re: Gyunei?

Okay that explains it better thanks. According to some sources Gyunei was 19 in CCA; so that means he would have been 5 years old when he was orphaned in the OYW, he was probably raised in a refugee colony like Sweetwater, and thus would have grown up around rebellion, but been too young to particip...

Gyunei?

So is there any more backstory on Gyunei in CCA? Aside from the common instability of Cyber-Newtypes we only get a small amount of info on his backstory. Gyunei mentions his parents dying in a colony drop, was it supposed to be the OYW or the Dublin colony drop? Also why is Gyunei on the side that c...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

There seems to be a lot of conflicting information on the Re-GZ. MAHQ seems to say that the Re-GZ was a prototype that was given to Londo Bell, after the hopeful mass production proved too costly. So in this regard it seems as though it wasn't built specifically for Amuro, rather given to the taskfo...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

As the others have said a lot of this probably ties into the real world timeline. CCA was released in 1988; which was long before a lot of Amuro's more powerful units were revealed in side stories, and the side stories in Gundam are of a dubious canon to begin with. Gundam does have a habit of retco...

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

Seeing as this is Gundam that's always a possibility (SPOILER like Quess in Hathways Flash). Though in this case Stellar had no unfinished business when she was last seen as a spirit in Seed Destiny so who knows what will happen. Also hope that there are at least cameo appearances from the expanded ...

Gaia Gear, Manhunter and Gundam

So Gaia Gear has long since been rendered non canon (both by Tomino's own work and later Sunrise entries), but was it supposed to be tied to Gundam at the outset? The story itself heavily ties toward the Gundam lore (the legacy of Char Aznable) but there are so many different settings from the regul...

Gustav Karl

So what's the story behind the Gustav Karl? I know it's been somewhat retconned into earlier works like Unicorn and Narrative , but was it originally supposed to just be used by the Manhunters? It seems to start of as a prototype in limited numbers, but its very powerful for a mass produced unit. So...

Re: The Official Untitled Legendary Live Action Gundam Movie Thread Mk I

Hopefully. Legendary did great work on the Pacific Rim films and their special effects; so if they get a good writer and a competent director (Vogt-Roberts seems to be a good match as he mentioned being a fan of Gundam), then the film should probably turn out well.

Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Mecha Thread Mk I

I'm just glad that they have the Gustav Karl in its original colors (which look somewhat like the Dijeh), hopefully they'll release a model of this unit.

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

Interesting Kuwashima has actually voiced three seperate characters in CE works (Stellar, Fllay, Natarle), so at first I'd wonder if she'd voice a new character ( Seiyuu in Gundam frequently voice different characters across series). But if Stellar really is coming back then maybe it would be some k...

Come to think of it who will be the Char Clone this time around? Do you think they'll use someone from the Manga expanded universe? Or do you think they'll come up with a new character?

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

The fossil could be tied to an archeological find that changes everything (Ie like Nadesico or Aldnoah Zero) however Manga side stories (which in Sunrises eyes aren't canon apparently) focus upon settlements on Mars, so probably not. Also later stories focus upon the Librarian Works a new group whic...

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

What happened to the Space Whale anyhow? it was introduced in SEED,then it's never mentioned again. Do you think it may have been part of the original draft of the movie? Since Gundam 00's movie featured aliens, its unlikely this movie would also.

Re: Strongest Mass Produced MS?

Ok so the Victory Gundam is more of a limited custom unit, as are the Gundams from Gundam X. It still seems as though the Serpent from Endless Waltz was mass produced (according to some sources 500 units were produced, not a lot I guess but when your the only units in the Earth Sphere...). As for CE...

GINN High Maneuver Type II(SPOILERS)

Were these units originally supposed to be their own taskforce? We only see them during the Break the World incident, and there aren't that many units. So were Sato's team assigned the GINNs and then went rogue, or did the group steal the units? The incident itself is implied to be something of a Fa...

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

I hope the manga gets an English translation; SEED seemed popular enough in North America (at least at first), for it to be a possibility. Interesting how Disaster Relief=Giant Robot, but maybe that's just a cover for some kind of Paramilitary organization. Also awesome that we're finally getting th...

Help identifying a suit

Okay so in episode 44 of SEED DESTINY (Lacus Times Two) there's a mobile suit that's hard to identify. It seems to be a variation of a ZAKU Warrior (probably with a BLAZE Wizard Pack) The suit is Black with Red flames painted on it and it appears at about 5 minutes into the episode. It looks like it...
