Re: Gyunei?

Okay that explains it better thanks. According to some sources Gyunei was 19 in CCA; so that means he would have been 5 years old when he was orphaned in the OYW, he was probably raised in a refugee colony like Sweetwater, and thus would have grown up around rebellion, but been too young to partici...

On another note, how long after the war were Karaba/AEUG made into Londo Bell?
21 March UC 0090... so approximately 1 year, 2 months, and 4 days from the official end of the First Neo Zeon War on 17 January UC 0089.

Re: Speculating what happened to Char between 0089 and 0091

Anyone noticed how fast AEUG and Karaba were weakened right after the Gryps War? Operation Maelstorm and whatever happened on Earth at the time did deplete them a lot, but even then they became feeble to quickly for imagination. The AEUG and Karaba folded as quickly as they did because they were pa...

Re: Gyunei?

So is there any more backstory on Gyunei in CCA? Aside from the common instability of Cyber-Newtypes we only get a small amount of info on his backstory. Gyunei mentions his parents dying in a colony drop, was it supposed to be the OYW or the Dublin colony drop? Also why is Gyunei on the side that ...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

The Z+ is not your typical Gundam franchise downgrade mass production unit. It is an upgrade unit like real life mass production where the hiccups and issues in the prototype is solved and with more units produced, you get a cost down(relatively) Eh... yes and no. The Zeta Plus series was initially...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

[...] at some point but it still begs the question why not build another Zeta for Amuro instead of giving him the Re-GZ. There are three incredibly obvious answers: Cost. Gundams are EXPENSIVE. Amuro may be a veteran and a newtype, but he's still just a regular soldier and fairly low-ranking office...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

However this also leads to another question, was the Z or ZZ more powerful? Many variants of the Zeta exist, but there don't seem to be many of the ZZ. The Zeta has the Waver Rider and Biosensor, which would be helpful with the powerful Newtype Amuro was; but the ZZ had a massive amount of beam wea...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

Since we are on the subject... is the ReZEL from Unicorn considered a better unit than the Re-GZ? Given that it is a combination of the Jegan, Re-GZ and Methus It seems to have better weapons and cost effective too. I think it performs better in every way than the units it is based on. On objective...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

The Re-GZ appears to be a very underwhelming suit. It was Anaheim's latest attempt to mass produce the Zeta Gundam, instead of slapping a G-Defensor on the back of a Gundam MK-II and calling it an upgrade, instead we start off with a flying backpack that appears to have the function of a Base Jabbe...

Re: Some observations and questions about 80s cartoons

Wait, so the comics code still had power in the 80s and 90s? I thought by then only Archie followed them? Then again, those series which break the codes would most likely be sold in specialized stores for nerds only, while you could stil buy Archie in the newstands, so I guess it makes sense. Yeah....

Re: Some observations and questions about 80s cartoons

I've never actually found any documents about TV guidelines back in the 1980s, but from what I've heard from a few other forums I am in, it's just sound bizzare. And it was weird that TV get all those self-imposed rules while comics had shed the Hays codes in the 60s and music never have it. In fac...

Re: Some observations and questions about 80s cartoons

1. There was a lot of entertainment for children in the 80s, but there was also a dearth of variety of quality, which was why so many children stuck with WWE and low-quality animated show. Eh, yeah... it was, I think, mainly a function of most of the kid's shows from that period being merchandising...

Re: Practicality of Physical Melee Weapons in Gundam

Little confused on this one. When I think Frame I think all the metal structures that house the MS internal components. I can't tell if you're saying the obligatory super-metal is just around the reactor or on the whole suit? Mobile Suits in the Iron-Blooded Orphans timeline have a structural endos...

Re: Practicality of Physical Melee Weapons in Gundam

That's very interesting, so essentially Ahab waves have gravitational forces that are forcing the subatmoic structures to behave in a certain way. So instead of making a better metal your reactor is constantly applying a force to resist deformation of that material. Very fascinating stuff. Close, I...

Gotcha so it sounds like most of their enhancement is off screen and intentionally left vague for the viewer.
Works better that way, because it's implied to be incredibly inhumane and so on... and having to wonder at it makes it scarier than knowing what it is.
