Re: GM Striker Kai - What Do We Know?

All I was able to turn up was that this is a RGM-79FP GM Striker was upgraded for use in space and outfitted with the backpack from the RGM-79FC Striker Custom, and was redesignated GM Striker Kai. Gundam Katana is set in 0084, so presumably the GM Striker Kai is from somewhere in 0080-0083 and as a...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So Harmony Gold's running out of time on the anime front, if things like this keep up? Something like that. The short-term implications for Harmony Gold aren't very big, but this marks another erosion of the value of that license renewal to Macross 's original series that Harmony Gold paid through ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So... back on Tuesday (5 Nov), Big West scored another legal victory over Harmony Gold USA.

The European Union Intellectual Property Office officially awarded ownership of the Macross trademarks in the European Union market to Big West, over Harmony Gold's objections.

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

Sorry, extreme side question. I have always wondered how do they do that without weakening the structure, they can surely cut it in half and weld it back together, but since they cannot quench and temper the finished product(at least not the whole thing), wouldn't that severely weaken the frame?

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

I suppose that even if the Gyan was compatible to existing Zaku and Dom weaponry, it is still a hard machine to master, given how fragile and relied on agility is it.A Rick Dom is most likely a safer choice for most pilot. Really, the Gyan's biggest problem is that it's designed around a combined a...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

You can certainly modify a pre-Gryps MS to accept moveable frame, as demonstrated by the Pale Rider being made into the Todesritter. What I want to ask how easy is this to do hypothetically? "Modify" might be the wrong word. The way it's described, it sounds a lot more like what Axis Zeon did was b...

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

Also, how rare is the original Gyan during OYW? It almost never show up in any spin-off story. Well, it WAS only a prototype... except in Gihren's Greed . From what I've read, Zimmad built three YMS-15 Gyan units and one of those three became M'Quve's personal mobile suit. I've seen nothing about w...

Re: Wing: G-Unit's accelerate rifle

What does the Japanese wiki say about the BR/TBR and does that compare with the G-UNIT tech? With regard to the nature of the weapon itself... not much. There's a line cited as from a 1/100 MG kit manual that suggests the Buster rifle and Twin Buster rifle are something analogous to a mega-particle...

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? In theory, yes. Though, given the Zentradi forces' considerable surprise and bewilderment over the Macross 's transformation it seems likely that it never occurre...

That wasn't something humanity added so much as it was the refurbished alien warship's new human crew using one of the original alien warship's features in a way its designers never intended.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I wonder if even General Galaxy was spooked about the Sharon Apple incident so much that they had to rely so heavily on cyborgs. If not, then by the time they resorted to cyborg-zombie, they might as well built truly intelligent combat androids. (It actually reminds me of Warhammer 40K) I'm not sur...

So... How good was that downgraded YF-27 compared to the production VF-24? Not very. All told, the YF-27-5 had inferior performance to the YF-25. The VF-24 is alleged to be on par with, or superior to, the YF-29... which significantly outclasses the VF-25 and even the VF-27 without Super Parts. And...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I feel like a lot of anime is very youth-biased in terms of how old people look. Max and Milia definitely don't look their ages. And all these senpai characters like Roy, Ozma and Arad don't look their ages either. To be fair, this feels like a case of Truth in Television... I've met fairly few peo...

Timothy Daldhanton is another example of a really old ace, from Macross VF-X2 .

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Max should be 74 by the time of Delta, so I'm sure he would still be alive, but I don't know if he'd still be piloting Valkyries. Come to think of it, we've never seen any really old people be pilots in Macross. Max and Milia themselves are the limit, each being 52 and 51, respectively, in Macross ...

Say, which voice actor would you want to return to the series, either as a cameo or a straight up another character? Most fans would probably say Yoshiki Fukuyama and Nobutoshi Hayashi as the singing and dialog voices of Basara. FWIW, I'd rather have Takehito Koyasu back as the voice of Gamlin Kiza...

I see. Good to finally know, though the gun comes across as a tad vanilla compared to other weapons in the franchise IMO.
