Re: Roy Jung and the Guntank R-44

Who is exactly Roy Jung, the civilian curator of Frontier IV's museum seen in F91? Exactly who he appears to be... the eccentric civilian director of Frontier IV's Roy War Museum. That's it. That's all there is. The Official Gundam Fact File mentions that there is a rumor that he was a Federal Forc...

Re: Kira attending military prep school?

... that's definitely a dodgy translation. Kira and Athrun met at Copernicus in CE61. They were SIX. YEARS. OLD. It was primary school. They went to school together there until CE68 when Athrun went back to the PLANTs and Kira went to Heliopolis at age 13 and didn't see each other again until CE70.

Re: What was the first Real Robot series to make it North America?

So what exactly was the first "Real Robot" series to make it to airwaves in North America? I know shows began being imported in the 80s (including the infamous Robotech debacle), so how many were released and when? Or was Robotec the closest thing to imported mech anime? Super robots had been a thi...

Does anyone known in which years the Jegan J-Type (Normal Type), and Jegan R-Type (F91's A Type) were respectively rolled out?
A quick skim of available resources says the RGM-89J entered service "after UC 0110".

Re: Big West and HG strike deal! Macross is free!

I mean, it was not just Macross who had some kind of legal disputes in America, right? I could recall talking to one guy about a series that had appeared in SRW and could not be legally distributed commercially in America, but for the love of God I couldn't recall which series was it. It was not Go...

Re: Big West and HG strike deal! Macross is free!

Yeah, it was a bolt from the blue for everyone. Right now, with Robotech effectively dead and nothing on the horizon on HG's end... I would say the chances of things falling apart are near-zero. HG would be only too happy to abandon Robotech for the steadier income stream from global Macross distrib...

Re: Side 4 and The Federation

Just trying to rationalise this particular "volunteer" thing and not the whole mess of TB. To be honest, there's no need to rationalize it... because that kind of thing is quite real, just not often used in the modern day due to the more rigorous training and cost of equipment.

After Big West's victory in the European Union, it looks like Harmony Gold has decided to throw in the towel and team up with Big West to release Macross's sequels globally.

In practice, they're semi-autonomous local governments operating under the auspicies of the central Federation Government. The degree of actual autonomy t...

Re: Earth Federation Uniform?

Do different uniforms signify different ranks in the Earth Federation? No, in the Earth Federation Forces a soldier's rank is indicated by rank pins worn on either side of the collar and on the uniform's shoulder loops. The Principality of Zeon actually does give different uniform jackets to differ...

Re: Differences between Mobile Suits

Re: Gundam AGE/X timeline question?

Honestly the idea behind tying every timeline together is actually pretty interesting, but it really falls apart when you actually try to merge all these very different stories together. Not only would there be an extremely long period of time for multiple Moonlight Butterfly apocalypses(we'd be ta...

Re: Gundam AGE/X timeline question?

How often has Sunrise emphasized this "official stance" to make it a relevant issue? It is de facto irrelevant because it's not something they're actively advancing. Even what G-Reco does is questionable, as I've seen it claimed that Tomino has at different times placed the series both before and a...

Re: Gundam AGE/X timeline question?

Also, G-Reco did made efforts to connect to CC. Gundam: Reconguista in G did a hell of a lot more than "make efforts".

Re: How long can Space Colonies/Lunar Cities last?

Another factor is the timeline of the Universal/Reguild Century (this is going to get confusing). As Turn A Gundam showcases all of the different timelines of Gundam are tied in together (somehow). If you take that into account then the colonies could have all been destroyed and then rebuilt in an ...

Re: How long can Space Colonies/Lunar Cities last?

The problem? Science marches on . [...] In a more ideal situation, the colonies can maybe last up to 200 years if well repaired. If not, they may not even last for a few decades. Though, from an in-universe perspective, it seems a safe bet that science continued to march ever onwards and space colo...
