Aquarion seems to be a modified recolor of the same designs we see in Nobunaga and M3.
Sousei no Aquarion predates Nobunaga the Fool and M3 by about 9 years.

Some of Kawamori's designs after 2005 have that Aquarion aesthetic.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

They're not described as such, no. Sometimes, the lineart is misleading. Under normal operating conditions, its gunpod would be stored internally in a manner identical to the VF-17's. I didn't expect the thinner leg of the VF-171 to have space for the gun pod. Also, its gun pod seems too long for t...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Some questions about the VF-17 and VF-171: - I know that the VF-17 stores its gun pod in its right leg but does it still have space for ordnance in the weapon bay of the same leg? - Are the four "diamonds" in each leg-mounted FAST pack of the VF-17, micro-missile launcher ports? - Does the VF-171 ha...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I looked up the VF-11's Japanese wiki page and it mentions a "GU-16" and "GU-16S". Are those from any official material? Where are the VF-14's micro-missile launchers? Are they in the forearms or legs? When a conformal part covers, let's say, a VF's leg (which has either micro-missile ports or launc...

the gunpod (incorrectly) as GU-15 (which is actually the VF-19's gunpod).
That's the VF-11C's gun pod (from Macross 7), right?

What about that of the VF-11B (from Macross Plus; the one with a bayonet)?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Were the VF-11's weapons (head laser gun and C-type's gun pod) given "official" names in its own Master File book?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Yes... though, for the life of me, I couldn't tell you where. Thanks for the reply. It's disappointing that Kawamori didn't flesh out those mecha more. About the VA-3M's weapons, I noticed in its Macross Chronicle entry that it has six high maneuver missiles and twelve micro-missile launchers. Look...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

It's likely at least 100m, though. The VF-1's maximum operating depth in underwater service was 100m and it wasn't designed around underwater operations the way the VA-3M was. I'm gonna assume it can operate much deeper than 100m and their armor looks sturdier than those of VFs. I wonder if it can ...

Re: Old Gundam profile corrections

The Japanese Wikipedia entry of the Gundam Dynames Repair mentions it having two GN beam sabers. This got me looking at official artwork. They are stored on the front of the GN verniers.

Re: Voltes V Legacy

The "five" in the manga's title refers to five robots: Com-Battler V6, Voltes VII, Daimos, Phobos (Daimos' partner/sister robot piloted by Erika), and Magne Kong (alternate mode of the protagonists' mothership, Magne Bird).

Later on in the manga, the Daltanious takes Magne Kong's place.

It's almost impossible, but I wish they take a hint from Hasegawa's one shot Voltes VII
One shot? Choudenji Taisen Victory Five had multiple chapters that were collected into two volumes. It later had a sequel, God Bird, which introduces Hasegawa's version of Reideen.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

So, the gunboat could actually transform into an attack mode similar to that of the SDF-1's? What about the DYRL version of the gunboat?

Do the TV and DYRL versions of the SDF-1 exist in the same continuity?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Is there a reason why the humans implemented a transformation mechanism in the SDF-1?
