Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

Damn looks like the NG Nightengale only comes with one Beam Saber. Was hoping for 4 so I could post him with the sub-arms deployed (looks like they do in the model)...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

I'm hoping they'll explain why all the MS are using solid shields instead of beam-shields/I-Fields (lack of resources?)

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

I wonder if this show if this show will finally tackle the Newtype issue for the UC, and whether there will be many of them here or if they are just a mutation like in Gundam X.

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

You know "New Yark" was written differently in kana too, right? It's not like they just arbitrarily changed the English spelling. -- Mark I was recalling an interview for one of the Gundam video games (was either Journey to Jaburo or Federation vs Zeon) where the localization team wanted to change ...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

It's derived from "Reconquista," and it's supposed to have a similar meaning, but for some reason they changed the Japanese kana and the accompanying English spelling, so we're left with the made-up word "Reconguista". I suspect that this is some kind of anagrammatic tic - "Re-Gild Century" and "Re...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

Late this thread sorry. But the title is supposed to be "Reconquista" right? As in the Spanish Reconquest from the Moors? I wonder if this gives a hint as to what the conflict will be about...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

Gundam Guy just posted a ful review of the Robot Spirits Hi-Nu Gundam.

In a word, near-perfection. My only complaint is that it's beam sabers are not the full double beam-sabers like the MG kit.

New Robot Spirits stuff coming soon. WooHoo! Robot Hi-v Gundam on the way! http://blog.yahoo.com/cybergundam/articles/1285900/index I'm so glad they're going back to the bulkier look like in the lineart. Don't get me wrong, I love the slim look of the MG and HCM pro figure, but I've always wanted a ...

Re: Sunrise in talks for more license rescues!

Thank God! I was this close to paying $200 for the MSG boxsets (still kicking myself for not getting them while they were still in print).

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VI

That sounds a bit daft. The series is raking in money and did well enough to get an additional episode but is understaffed/funded? Though I suppose that's par the course for Gundam. We never really see the billions made on Gunpla put back into actual show production. They're probably scared of doin...

Re: OYW from Zeon Civilian's POV?

You have found the last real unexplored territory of the One Year War, the Principality Home Front. :) We get hints of it here and there from the conversations and memories of the military characters in MSG and later-placed episodes, but no one has really gotten the Zeon common man's POV. We have s...

OYW from Zeon Civilian's POV?

Are there any works that show the One Year War from the POV of Zeon civilians? We've seen it so far from Neutrals (0080) and from the Federation (many scenes in MSG and 08th MS Team) but never from Side 3 from the looks of it. I always wondered if it was a situation similar to Germany and Japan in W...

Fate of Captain Synapse and the Albion crew?

I keep hearing that after Stardust Captain Synapse either committed suicide or was executed after being Court-Martialed for stealing the GP-03 among other things. Which was it, and why would he commit suicide? Also, after they became Titans, is there any word on what happens to the rest of the Albio...

If amuro got the NT-1 "Alex"...

Was just wondering if there are any manga/novels/video games that show what happens if Amuro had gotten the Alex Gundam. I think you may be able to give to him in the Ghiren's Greed games, but I'm not entirely sure...
