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

Wow that is quite the mess. Looks like, as is sometimes the case in these types of side source materials, the term usage is all over the place in different publications. Personally my own interpretation is that it would make the most sense if Bael's swords, Grimgerde's blades, Rex's claws and Regin...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

On the official Youtube release, at 2:26 on the video, you see what seems to be a reflection of a purple Jegan holding some manner of weird beam weapon that I'm totally unfamiliar with. Anyone have any clue as to what that thing is holding?

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

One thing that makes me wonder if the description of Bael's swords was a typo (aside from the only other yellow blades we've seen being called out as a different kind of rare metal than that found in MS frames) is that the swords are supposed to be 'unbreakable'. Which doesn't completely match MS f...

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

For some of the people here who can read and write Japanese: is it possible for someone to ask Ebikawa the question about the Bael's swords? If no one else wants to, I'll try myself but I'm thinking someone writing in Japanese would be better. I mean, the worst that can happen is you get no response...

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

The Grimgerde model kit notes that the special material it uses is harder than that of a Gundam frame and that there is not enough for an entire mobile suit frame. Everyone seems to be discussing that yellow material as the same as that of a Gundam frame which is getting confusing. Gundam frame mate...

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

The Barbatos Lupus Rex and Juietta's new Graze look incredible. In particular, it looks like they've re-tooled the Hashmal's tail weapon for the Barbatos as well as covered its nano-laminate claws in a new material that looks like the same yellow metal of the tail. I wonder if they'll say whether th...

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

I think what we're seeing with Mikazuki and the Alaya-Vinjana system is just an inevitable negative outcome based off how the system works. As the supplemental materials have explained, the nano-machines of the system work to create an artificial third lobe of the brain which helps the pilots move t...

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

It seems that the Gundam Flauros is the closest thing we've seen resembling a artillery mobile suit in this world. You would think at a Graze Cannon variant would be around armed with high caliber cannons or mortars to penetrate the armor of enemy suits... That is a bit strange... This is something...

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

I've always been a fan of the big, lumbering Gundams with guns slung all around and this new "Gundam C" with the cannons looks like it will fit the bill quite nicely. I checked it against the other Gundams from the series rather carefully and barring the chunky Gusion, this Gundam looks to be packin...

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

Hope that clears things up a bit. I appreciate summing it up for me. I was trying to figure everything out just going through the forum and I was getting a little confused. I know about the issues with sources a lot of time with Gundam; I actually run a panel on Gundam canon shenanigans myself.

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

I'm trying to figure out something but I'm getting confused: Do Ahab particles beget waves or vice versa? Also, which help with making nanolaminate armor effective? It seems that there is some source people keep referencing but I guess I missed it somewhere. If someone might be able to clarify, I'd ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I may have missed this in the discussion and if so, I apologize for redundancy.

Given that this series will be based off the Origin manga, will it be considered an alternate retelling of the original Gundam anime or is it somehow being integrated into the canon of Gundam?

Gundam Converge Inquiries

I had a couple of questions about some of the Gundam Converge figurines in case some of you folks might be privy: Does Unicorn, Jesta, and Delta Plus 3-piece set have the regular versions or are they extra shiny or in some way special? Same question but with the Exia and Union Flag special set? Also...

Mobile Suit Gundam Posters

I've been trying relentlessly to get a few Gundam posters of mine identified: Poster 1 - http://i.imgur.com/UUspM.jpg; http://i.imgur.com/F157j.jpg Poster 2 - http://i.imgur.com/SWpbD.jpg; http://i.imgur.com/1pmAL.jpg So they seem to be posters from the Mobile Suit Gundam movies II and III 30 years ...
