World of Early Drafts [Part.1] – Zeta Gundam Prototype

The Zeta Gundam television series that we’ve come to know was vastly different when it was originally pitched back in July 1984. Depicted in the pages of Animedia’s Zeta Gundam Complete Record Edition is Tomino’s original prototype for the series, complete with plot synopsis, characters, world-build...

Re: [UC Gundam] Civilian Ships/Carriers?

The hull is, as some online sources say, a Space Ark with the sides being reminiscent of a Columbus.

Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Mecha Thread Mk I

The Gustav Karl indeed has heavy/thick armor, that is specifically pointed out in the HGUC model kit manual and in the Gundam Narrative's official profile. I also won't say the base weight is barely more, the Gustav Karl is about 36% heavier even though it is only about 8% taller. As for the max we...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Anyway, going back to the original point of this topic, when's the last time we saw an overcrowded colony or a slum area in one of the lunar cities in Universal Century Gundam? Well, we certainly have slums in the colonies (Shangri-La) and one could argue that where Kou was beaten up was a "slum" a...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Gundam franchise do have publications labelling some events as 正史 and some as 野史 or 異説, they do want to have official accounts of the history, and thus I try to honour at least their efforts of trying to do so. You'll have to point out which publications, exactly (I'm curious), utilize that termino...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

As if specs and whatnot haven't been all over from the beginning. Explain the RX-78-02 and RX-78-2. To my understanding, canon means the one and only officially accepted version of the history/story, RX-78-2 is, 02 is not. A simple zero in the model number now doesn't change anything. It's still de...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Please tell me where on Earth can Origin is canon, it has a different MS design timeline for every single Federation MS, numbered differently, (Say, RX-78-02 instead of RX-78-2), and different specs. As if specs and whatnot haven't been all over from the beginning. I know we have very different vie...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Origin isn't canon. At least there are many alternative designed machines that are just similar but not the same, it doesn't work as a same reality as the original series. The Author of Origin also said it is his own take on the story. Please tell me where it is EXPLICITLY stated that the Origin is...

Re: Shin Matsunaga fate

In the MSV-R manga, they did an homage to Quattro's Hyaku Shiki floating in space, cockpit open, only this time it was with Shin's Zaku.

Depends on which version of his story you want to follow. Both of them have him disappearing following his rescue of Zena/Mineva Zabi though.

Re: Gihren as father of Glemmy, Puru and Alicia

I think it's a bit of a stretch for Alicia to be in there. AOZ reboot is a bit... Disorganized? That and nothing else (that I've seen) have ever referenced what's supposedly transpiring on Mars.

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

Here's the problem with your system: it creates misinformation and doesn't exist in any continuity. Trying to shoehorn this in in the Wiki already exacerbates their poor reputation. You're basically creating a system for no purpose.

Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

I think the way Fukui is spinning off their existence is essentially through public backlash over them. According to the radio drama that came out, the Federation still has yet to acknowledge the real Universal Century Charter (despite protests to do just that). Furthermore, scholars also speculate ...

Re: [Narrative Spoilers] Question on MS Production

Unless some information has changed, the Dijeh wasn't a one-off mobile suit crafted specifically for Amuro. Years later, the MSK-008R Rick Dijeh is something that is more akin to being customized for Amuro but that's it. If you choose to follow part of the Gundam Narrative manga version, the serial ...

On the topic of name, is it "Full Cloth" or "Full Cross", as the X-1 and X-0 named here?
It says フルクロス, which could be read either way with equal validity.

Their preferred reading is apparently "Full Cross"?
Full Cloth appeared on the model boxes didn't it?
