Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

One thing I wonder about Gyan design is that why is there no thruster under its skirt and ankle armor. That would help a lot for jumping and may even allow hovering. HG Gyan Kreiger does have skirt thrusters and calf thrusters. Anyone here has a HG Gyan to check if it has skirt thruster? If not, th...

Re: Hathaway's Flash 3-part film adaptation!

We have our first bits of new(?) information for the movie courtesy of the HGUC Penelope's manual: 12 years had passed after Char's Rebellion in U.C. 0105. The Earth was at a brief moment of peace. However, the Earth Federation Government, still kept its tendencies to despise residents in space, and...

Re: The Clop Class Cruiser Damascus Gundam NT

I noticed some V Gundam have color scheme not seen in the show. Are they suppose to be custom machines for aces? The Shrike Team? Offhand the only V Gundam color variants that's not an MSV exclusive is the Ver.Ka version (which has different color apps in some places like the shoulder vents) and th...

Re: Share your Gundam facts!

Speaking of which, V Gundam Hexa, the commnader model, also got rid of the combination mechanism for higher performance. Hmm... According to the Japanese wiki , this is true only for the novel version of Hexa, not for the anime version. Both the official site profile for Hexa and the Gundam MS Movi...

Anyone here know the purpose of the bars on the shoulders of the Gundam Ground Type/Local Type?
Attachment points for extra hardware, like the parachute pack.

Re: Different models of shield during and after OYW.

A recent scan from Anaheim Log (https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/gundam/images/a/a7/Anaheim_log_GM_type_C_2.png/revision/latest?cb=20170627041502) shows that the GM Type C can use the Nemo's shield. So it seems that logistic factors more than the overall design when it comes to shield. Slight d...

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

The only problem I can see with using the Reginlaze Julia on the ground is having to drag its formerly-attached-to-the-legs thrusters, which now dangle mostly uselessly from the side skirts. I can't remember if they were used in the brief Barbatos fight but the connection looks flimsy enough that I'...

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

Well... now we got a extra reason to see why Dainsleffs were banned... those things are EXTREMELY long range. Hitting from space onto the surface. It's not like orbital bombardment with mostly-inert rods for massive damage on the surface is an entirely new thing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinet...

Re: Mobile Suit Cockpit hatches

Somewhat-related question: where is the Doven Wolf's cockpit/cockpit hatch located? I've checked its appearances in ZZ, and can't find anything. The Mk.V and the Silver Bullet have them in the standard position, but the Doven Wolf's torso beam cannons complicate things. The official profile gives a ...

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

Thank you for the info about the Landman Rodi. Also... about the Bael still having its cockpit... wouldn't the Flauros still have its original cockpit as it was found in the mines? Or was it damaged that it had to be replaced? I would assume that to reduce any compatibility problems they replaced t...

Well, Unicorn started airing on Toonami last night. (Yay! :D) I just wanted to know: is it the RE version we're getting aired? Yes. The episode was not an hour long, and had a proper OP/ED, right? Content wise there's very little that changed from the OVA version, though we've already gone through ...

Re: What MS design would you like to fix?

I would have to concur on the concern about Okawara. His art for the Scramble Gundam from the GBF TRY OVA was horrendous compared to the depiction onscreen and the Gunpla itself.
