Re: GN Arms

Just as an interesting thought, since I have the 1/144 model built already.... It looks like the Gundam 0 will slot in as well (basic design of the Exia, in terms of perportions, GN Drive placement, etc) Do you think the Gundam 0 would have been compatable with the GN Arms? CB kept it around as a "J...

GN Arms

Alright, so I was given the GN Arms Type-E HGUC kit for christmas (yay wife!) Looking at it, I can't really remember the weapon systems on it (Besides the two massive guns on the top) - nor what the real purpose of it was... So... can someone give me a quick refresher on it? (and, if I may ask - an ...

Re: RX-78-1 Prototype Gundam

I always figured the RX-78-1 was the full on prototype units. The two that were created (the number I always heard tossed around) were built to test - make sure it walks, thrusters work, AMBAC works, weapon systems, etc. But like all true prototypes, they'd be glitchy as hell - something didn't work...

Re: The Meaning Behind Ring of Gundam

Thinking about Tomino and what he's said in recent years, his changes to Zeta and just Turn A over all - I think the "Evil Adult" concept is very apt. I think he's looking at what Gundam has become - and it's reminding me of a scene from The Crow, where Top Dollar is talking before Devils night: "Th...

Re: Colonies in Gundam Universes

This is awesome information guys, thank you very much :D So, reading through the link Wingnut gave me, I came up with some fun numbers: Average Open type colony has a mass of about 50,000 mega tons. Average 100 colonies per side 7 sides to populate (while side 7 was underpopulated, side 3 made up fo...

Re: Colonies in Gundam Universes

UC colonies follow the O'Neill Cylinder concept. THANK YOU... I couldn't, for the life of me, remember that :D - makes mass calculations a lot easier. For most of the others they are variations on other aspects of rotation=gravity. As for population. SEED's can be considered comparable to UC in pop...

Re: Core Fighter question

In this instance, I would wager that it comes down to the ease of combat replacement During the Zanscare war, the League was cranking out V Tops and bottoms - so if a unit was damaged, it would be just as easy to eject a part (arms/chest or waist/legs) and just attach a new unit. The MS itself can c...

Colonies in Gundam Universes

Hi all, I have no idea where to look up this information, so I'm sure someone here can point me in the right direction. I'm looking for information as to the mass of colonies (Island 3 types can give me a basis but if there's any information pertaining to the Wing style colonies or the Hourglass typ...

Re: TftF Discussion Thread #4

Hey guys, need some suggestions

There's no one really posting on the Balrumpur - been waiting 2 weeks for a response. Since I want to be active in the RPG - should I just start talking to myself or just wait for the combat, where I can hopefully pick a few dance partners from the Titans?

Some of them had seen action, though this Ash Black was a bit of a mystery. He had met with him and the others briefly, but not enough to get a feel for them. The worst...

Re: GFF #0025 Xi Gundam/Penelope for $76, good deal???

Considering it was one of the more expensive GFF's (around 125 CND when it was released) - that's pretty good, including shipping.
And, it's my favourite GFF :D

Awesome thanks Fritz

Is it ok to run a practice battle drill? Get the guys out in their mobile suits? Fly formation around the ship, hammer out a few rounds on some dummies/drones?

You know I was being a smart ass right? No. Honestly, you haven't been around long enough for me to know whether you were being a smart ass or actually being legit about that, so I just went with the latter. :mrgreen: True that.....
