Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

One thing I wonder about Gyan design is that why is there no thruster under its skirt and ankle armor. That would help a lot for jumping and may even allow hovering. HG Gyan Kreiger does have skirt thrusters and calf thrusters.

Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

I doubt if it sorties on its own Gyan won't be equipped with a machinegun or bazooka. For beam projectile Gyan Eos is equipped with beam gun on its beam bayonet, and in video game Gyan Kreiger has beam gun under its shield. With shorter sensor radias Gyan is still inferior to Gelgoog in ranged comba...

Re: Grypts Conflict - Titans MS Comparative Performance

Dom [not Rickdom] and its variants are still a pretty good MS on Earth, still being able to crush newer grunt MSs [not pilot by major charactors] decades later.

Asshimar is One MS from Z/ZZ era that get developed further to Anksha. IIRC in AOZ Hyzenthlay II is an attempt to duplicate Gabthley.

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

The latest incarnation of Gelgoog Jaeger figure, Robot spirits ver. anime, still has no beam saber in its arsenal.

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

Based on its full performance shown by Mallet against G05 and Gelgoog, with its magnet coating joints and resulting agility Act Zaku is quite terrifying with its limiter removed (which Char is likely to do). It would be a better MS to fight Gundam than Zeong that Char cannot really capitalized on it...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Ko-1 scratchbuilt skill is impressive for making high quality big shuttle whose spec surpass all in-game shuttle of comparable size in one week. It must be quite costly for one mission gunpla :wink:

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

The GM from MSG won't be able to move its legs upwards without rubber metal for its box-shaped waist armor [which all MS in MSG seem to be equipped with for all their impossible movements if really fix on the design eg. Gundam kicking Rickdom's head], cannot bent its elbow, has no thrusters anywhere...

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

In animation Rick Dom and Rick Dom II often fly forward using back thrusters with body at upward angle diagonally, not with body lying down superman-style. Their back thrusters point upward away from the body and skirt. It is not about one single direction, it is about the range of motion. The adva...

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

The degree of movement for model/toy depends heavily on whoever design it. For example this old MIA ver2 Rickdom has mobility that put MG to shame http://sranngurenn.blog70.fc2.com/blog-entry-3820.html If MG is used for comparison foot and leg mobility of the 1st ver of GM and Rickdom are both rathe...

Perhaps Meijin modified his zaku to have more retro look compared to the heavily detailed HG Origin version it is based on? Lots of Sanding away + putty works ;-)

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

Mahq lists the 4 thrusters [that should be the foot thrusters] of GM with 1,870 kg/pc so the total would be just 7,480 kg combined, far less thrust than just one of the two backpack thrusters at 24,000 kg /pc. Rickdom and Gelgoog have thrusters on their feet too according to MG models [at least 3 pe...

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

GM main thrusters should be its backpack?

and IIRC isn't it been said around in the forum that various MS spec given are not really accurate anyway?
