Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

That goes back to the days when the 08th MS Team's version of the 06J was considered the same as the MSV one, before it got retconned to 06JC. I guess the assumption was that the F looked the same. I'm not sure what you mean - is there some indication from more recent sources that the 08MST version...

Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

The image currently on the site for the MS-06F Zaku II under "08th MS Team version" is incorrect. Here is the correct line art for the 08MST version of the F-type Zaku: http://ameblo.jp/addicto/image-10855439604-11158289483.html (I can't believe I just stumbled on this randomly!

Re: Super Robot Wars Mk 2

well one thing that sticks out to me is the Color, The Weiss appears yo be in Rage mode but it's color isn't right (red rather than blue) EDIT: looking again at the new and old Alt images I actually think that unit remains unchanged. The only possible "extra launcher" I see is the one on the outsid...

Re: Gelgoog Cannon (Chimera Corps)

Regarding Johnny Ridden he used a Gelgoog Cannon according the Zeonography figure line. Actually, the Johnny Ridden's Gelgoog Cannon dates back to the original MSV designs, though Zeonography changed the color scheme up a bit.

Re: RMS-178 fake gundam mk II

The design in that illustration is an adaptation of the "Nise Gundam Mk. II" ( にせガンダムMk-II , meaning "Fake Gundam Mk. II"), from SD Gundam, which was never meant to fit into continuity. You can see it in the bottom right corner of this image, between the Super Gundam and the regular Nise Gundam (whi...

Re: Why is it called a beam rifle?

Its because the "RIFLE" is actually an acronym for Rockin' Incredible Firing Longrange Equipment. LOL. To me the term "beam rifle" is as silly as a "beam saber" is, where with "saber" I think about a "kind of backsword with a curved, single-edged blade". The beam rifle is not rifled as much as the ...

However, there are other mistakes in the romanized names on the Exceed site, such as "Jakiganoh" instead of the previously established official spell...

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XV

The way these arm condensers stick out is a little weird, although the design does happen to allow part-swapping with GN Drives later. Looks to me like the creators/designers had a bit of flawed logic when traversing the development line backwards. The shape of the panels holding the condensers is ...

Re: Gundam/Misc. Mecha Image Request Thread V.5

Assuming you're referring to the Akutsu designs for the original five Gundams from Seed- I have no idea. Someone else posted the image and I hung on to it; I don't even know what it was scanned from. Looking at the copy I just linked, it appears I uploaded it in 2004... so the image was around on th...

Hi, I know this has probably been asked for before, but does anyone have the original (non-okawara) line art for the first 5 gundams from SEED? Here. Yes, I do. While we're on the topic of Seed concept art, I just want to point out that I'm pretty sure these Freedom early designs are fan-colored. I...

Re: Titan Maximum

I liked how the original three male team members were assigned colors on the basis of how much of the "alpha male" they are, and the two female team members have colors that match their hair. After the third ep and its superconducting coil (or whatever it was), and the distraction of the diamond dri...

Re: How tall are most 'Western Mechs'?

Where is Talos from Greek Mythology? That's a good point. I'm generally in favor of citing mythical magic automata such as Talos and the Golem of Prague as the forerunners of the concept of the robot, but I left them out of the list for the same reason I left real-world automata and modern robots.....

I hate to say this but there really is not much in the way of original western robots. the us mecha properties from the 80's were imported series or toy lines with American written plots. even robotech used some eastern mecha to fill its ranks. really all we have is the ed 309, the power loader, po...
