Re: Gundam: The Origin Preorders

Ordered the first volume and will probably get the second as well. The wait's been killing me!

Re: Pacific Rim the movie (2013) - Guillermo del Toro

Apparently it takes a Mexican nerd director and giant 80 meters robots fighting kaijus on the silver screen to awaken this account, but I completely agree with hawk there: this movie will definitely rock. Just the amount of love that's put into it shows that Del Toro really is a fan of the mecha and...

Robo One in Space... What Happened?

First and foremost, this will be a slight change of pace from the usual mecha tech thread since the topic of concern isn't a fictional one. (hopefully) Remember back in 2006, when Robo One is still gathering momentum and starting to cause a stir in the mainstream media, how Robo One announced they'r...

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XVII

Going to change the topic slightly since it recently occurred to me that if twin drive system's massive particle output is made possible by carefully managing particle output to maximize particle resonance, then is it possible to achieve the same effect, albeit with much more difficulty, with Tau Dr...

Re: Zeon MS compared the German aircraft.

Nice of you to link the Wikipedia articles of the planes as I probably wouldn't have bothered checking for every one! It's interesting how even the aesthetic changes matches those made in the real world and your choice for Gelgoog and Gyan are especially adequate. Though isn't the Heinkel He 162 a b...

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XVI

That's all they took directly from the GN-XII's weapon systems? The entire concept/design just look so similar I'd be surprised if CB simply took one look at the two models and decided to give the 00 a similar. Even the way it's mounted is exactly the same! GN Sword II Blaster and Buster Sword syste...

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XVI

An anon on /m/ suggested that the entire attachment could be swung around to its back and parts that replaces the old Raiser system can be attached after that. Seeing how bulky the other CB models are getting, I don't think it's out of the context for them pull a gimmick like that. EDIT: I should ad...

Decline of Dedicated Sniper MS on post OYW battlefields

There's something that always bugged me about the decline of dedicated sniper MS after the OYW. During the OYW, sniper MS got a huge amount of attention in the form of numerous GM Snipers and their customs, but after the war, development of similar machines practically disappeared. Is this because o...

Re: The Saku.

Anyway, how would the performance of these things be like compared to the 'standard' units? Could 100 Sakus even b...

Re: The Saku.

That's what I think too. If we were to make this a serious discussion, just thing about how overwhelmingly effective when you have 1000:1 advantage in the number of units you can deploy! Aside from that, the three main features of the "s" series are: -SUPER EASY 2 STEP ASSEMBLY!!(take the two cover ...

Usso's does have ridiculous piloting ingenuity though, almost as much as OYW Amuro I'd say. One thing that makes Usso surpass even Amuro is that he is much calmer in high pressure situations.

Re: Zanscare's Trump Cards, Zanspine and Zancock

Didn't the Zanspine also have THREE Minovsky Drives to the V2's two? I think I remember reading that it did. Not sure as to the source though, so maybe someone can confirm whether or not that's the case. Yeah, it's true. From all representations of it, Zanspine's always been portrayed to have three...

Re: Zanscare's Trump Cards, Zanspine and Zancock

Well, the V2 Assault DID have two I-field generators. Not to mention a beam spray pod for taking out fast and small targets, intended for missiles, would probably work against bit to some degree. The only real advantage the Zanspine would have is the twinkle bits which is debatable against a fully ...

Re: Zanscare's Trump Cards, Zanspine and Zancock

Eh, that's arguable I guess, since by the time of the Zanscare conflicts, the performance of high end suits can only be fully utilized by NTs anyway. But since I guess I don't have much information backing up my energy argument, I think your case is a bit stronger. Wouldn't the NT weapons still give...

Re: Zanscare's Trump Cards, Zanspine and Zancock

I had a feeling that Zanspine was created that way too, but I still think it's a bit too early to conclude that it's abilities are eclipsed by V2AB in every area. The reason being that the Zanspine is designed from the get go to carry all of its on board weapons, meaning that unlike the V2, which su...
