Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

While some of the stuff rubs me the wrong way (the crap trailer, mostly) I am at the very least intrigued. The mech designs look different than we're used to in the UC era, but in a good way, and I still see some connections to past designs without it being a direct "homage", and the Gundam certainl...

Silly, there will of course be villainous builders who Gunpla Battle for all the wrong reasons. "I grew up an orphan with nothing, fighting to survive every day.

Re: Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk. I

I think one of my friends pre-emptively ragequit this show when I told him the suits were only up through Destiny: 00's designs are his favorites. XD As for this… hmmm. I'll give it a chance. The concept shows promise for lots of references and such, but at the same time I'm having Beyblade/Medabots...

* The Xamdrag and Defurse are basically the top and bottom halves of the same giant mobile suit design, and indeed they share the same central body. The "Perfect Defurse" mentioned in the development chart would presumably be a simple splice of the two machines, which should be easy to mock up with...

Re: The Gundam SEED Destiny HD Remaster Thread

Well… it's not quite as ugly as the Perfect Strike, so I suppose we should all be grateful for that. Wait, it's been like, ages since I saw anything about this show: did the Rouge do anything in GSD besides getting blown up when Kira flew to get his new god mode gundam?

To be fair, a LOT of variants in Gundam Seed look like Custom Lineart Requests. Like the Raigo, or the Perfect Strike Gundam.

Re: Rematch! Rewatching G Gundam

I'd also like for somebody to identify the civilian mechs that try messing with Domon Episode 29, the same mechs that botch the Jet Stream Attack? Even MAHQ and Wikia has nothing on 'em.

Re: Rematch! Rewatching G Gundam

G Gundam was actually my first proper introduction to Gundam (I missed Gundam Wing when it was on the air, to the point that I was trying to figure out which nation the Wing mobile suits belonged to). My best friend and I actually MET because of G Gundam (I made an offhand reference to Domon Kasshu ...

Re: Create the next Gundam TV Series

I thought Dyson Sphere is when you engulf the entire solar system with a sphere? Pretty close. A Dyson sphere is where you use a network of satellites completely surrounding a sun to absorb most of the energy it gives off. A Dyson shell is the solid structure most people think of when they hear "dy...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-9

In a general sense, I really liked most of the designs. I liked the Vegan suits for being so unique, and I LOVED the Genoace/Clanche series of mobile suits. Probably my favorite grunts ever, even though they sucked, but that's what grunts are for anyway. Most of the Gundams were kind "meh" for me, b...

The Vs. games went that route by giving it a standard shell-firing mode and making one of its special attacks a beam.

Re: Ideal, um... cockpit location/position

A number of mobile suits have had retracting lines to take the pilot up to the cockpit: 00 has them in most if not all of the Gundams. And VOTOMS just had their mechs crouching down so you could climb in… except those things were of course teeny-tiny. For me, I would put a cockpit in the chest, A) t...
