Re: The Official Gundam Narrative Mecha Thread Mk I

I think they are going to write in a second Sinanju Stein which came in the container as a reserve unit along with Full Frontal's one and the zeon styled conversion kit. Note the new sleeve markings, longer and rounder shield tip, and the underside of the rifle resembling the Sinanju rifle plus bazo...

Re: The Official Gundam Narrative Anime Thread Mk I

It looks like they are adapting Fukui's UC 0096 Phoenix Hunt Incident into a 0097 event.

Re: The Official Gundam Narrative Anime Thread Mk I

A version of the Phoenix Hunting Incident has been depicted as part of the UC Novel continuity in which the Neo Zeong was destroyed by the Phenex. Yona and Rita are in there. https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%A6%E3%83%8B%E3%82%B3%E3%83%BC%E3%83%B3%E3%82%AC%E3%83%B3%E3%83%80%E3%83%A0#3%E5%8F%B7%E6...

Re: The YMS-09 and MS-09D Doms and variants

If we treat the Izubuchi/Katoki Doms in their own microcosm, I found some interesting parallels.

YMS-09 Proto Dom = Rick Dom II Prototype (space only though)
MS-09B Dom = Rick Dom II (Izubuchi Dom colony colours)
MS-09R Rick Dom = Rick Dom II
YMS-09D Tropical Dom = Dom Tropen

Re: The YMS-09 and MS-09D Doms and variants

The Zaku Half Cannon was another option set machine with 24 sers made after the Zaku Cannon was evaulated. It was a surprise that MSV-R did not touch on any MS-09B beung converted into desert type, but did have one for the cold climate type. Therefore, they would have been converted in the same mann...

Found it!

1982 catalog. Bottom left Desert Dom with YMS-09D backpack.

Though, MSV kits were released in 1983.

The YMS-09 and MS-09D Doms and variants

There is an air of mystery surrounding the appearance of the MS-09D, the formally adopted version of the Dom Tropical Type, which is simply called Dom Tropical Type. At this point, we should restrict referencing MS that existed up to circa 1984, so no Dowage and Dom Tropen yet. http://www.1999.co.jp...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

I could see that Origin verse and MSD is trying to unify all those visually inconsistent designs from UC One Year War which were a result of mixing Okawara, post 90s Okawara, Izubuchi and Katoki designs which notably produced too many lines of GMs etc(Jaburo, Luna II, Augusta). They've modernised a ...

Re: IBO MSV

A case of settling for a replica or stand in, especially after losing the original. I think a similar case in Gundam has happened before but couldn't think of it right away. Could have been the red pseudo Full Armor Alex that was essentially a GM Custom. There was also the Hazel Reserve Unit being a...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Official site updated with lineart for Orga's Shiden and Graze Schild The Graze Schild profile noted that it is a custom Graze used by the Arianrhod Fleet. Its basic armament consisted of a large shield and halberd. Participating in controlled group battle, its primary mission is to lay siege and s...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Let's say GHorn deployed <100 Grazes in total on Mars, they ended up with less than 20 by the end of the battle. Of the 100 Grazes, I would presume that the elite Arianrhod Shild Types got depleted first and then they were reinforced by the regular Mars Branch ones. I assume that Julietta was probab...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

I love the reversals of the S1 ending. Gaelio killing McGliss. Guts getting killed by multiple mooks. Mika being slayed as the devil by Julietta, which paralleled the devil Graze Ein in S1. Just as MA were terrifying, the equally terrifying countermeasures against them, the AV system Gundams and Dai...

Ebikawa Twitter names the new Graze as EB-06q Graze Schild (German for shield).

Iok's one is just a Mars Graze with the sword backpack.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

I am calling for a Spartacus/300 style last stand. A giant net will be thrown in to immobilise Barbatos and then a volley of Dainsleifs will impale every Tekkadan mobile suit. The final shot is of all impaled MS wreckages. The pregnant women and children escape with Hush(and maybe Iok offers these c...

Iok's Graze looks to have a battle blade mounted on its backpack. I am not sure if the Reginlaze bayonet could be used as a handheld weapon.

Neither Grimgerde and Julia are mass produced, but the lost technology Gundam Frames still have a higher status than the top of the line one-off machines that could be produced at present time.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk II

The yellow metal thing and Julian swords yellow tip(and wire) being the same is from Ebikawa's tweet. The Bael ones mentioned in the HG manual might as well be implicitly the same grade as it is also yellow, and this MS frame rare alloy could refer to both the gray and yellow grades. We will just le...
