Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

So I watched Episode 19 this morning before heading into work, and man I was not ready for just how emotional this episode would make me. First off, the initial meeting between Hiroto and Eve was cute. Familiar, but cute. But the fact that she inspired the PLANETS system, not only in terms of the id...

Re: Code Geass: The complexities of Lelouch

I feel ya. What was the point where you felt he went off the rails? It's really difficult to pin down a specific point for me, because Lelouch's actions leaned heavily into the "evil" side of the moral scale from a very early point even in S1, starting with the cold-blooded murder of his own half-b...

Re: Code Geass: The complexities of Lelouch

I am firmly in the "action" camp. Noble intentions, in my personal view, do not justify evil actions.
By that metric, Lelouch, as charismatic and arguably sympathetic a character as he started out as, was no better than his half-brother(the competent one, I mean) or his father IMO.

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

It really does. I think the biggest thing is the shape of the Core Shield and the way the gun mounts under it, but even the way its transformation was animated reminded me of Wing.

TINY WING GUNDAM

Watching the last episode of Build Divers: Rise, I saw the Core Gundam II's Core Flyer mode and couldn't get "Tiny Wing Gundam" out of my head. Hence this, a recolor of the Core Gundam II in Wing Gundam-inspired colors :P

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

I love the Core Gundam II, but really the only thing that sticks in my mind right now is that its Core Flyer mode looks like tiny Wing Gundam. Better episode than last week's, though still a little slow for my taste. What's really piqued my curiosity more than anything right now is where they plan t...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

I feel like there was a lot of runtime wasted here...I mean yeah, we get a few kernels of new footage and information, but none of it really translates to any meaningful narrative progress. Mind you, I've enjoyed this series more than I have anything in the Build-verse since the original, but all th...

Re: What is the future of Gundam??

i read also there's possibility of doing a SEED destiny movie being developed. Hasn't that been in development hell for, like, forever? Well over a decade, IIRC. I think the last time there was anything concrete was from the late Chiaki Morosawa in 2007 or 2008. Honestly, I think at this point, It'...

Re: Gihren as father of Glemmy, Puru and Alicia

The novels, huh? Yeah, I vaguely remember that a lot was quite different between the novels and the series, but it's been probably 7 or 8 years since I read them, so I guess that's why I couldn't remember exactly. But yeah, they're completely incompatible with the anime, I do remember that much. Tha...

Re: Gihren as father of Glemmy, Puru and Alicia

I can't remember where I read this, so take it with a grain of salt - but I seem to vaguely recall reading somewhere that she might also have been his mistress.

If anyone can confirm whether or not this is something that was indeed mentioned or implied somewhere, I'd be curious.

ELDORA ARMY RECOLORS
And a slight modification on one or two, but basically it's the entire Eldora Army lineup, with a color scheme based on that of the Death Army line(Primarily the basic Death Army) from G Gundam

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

That's pretty interesting. On another note, I revisited another old custom project of mine from years ago, which was a modification of the General Revil from Unicorn . It bugged me a bit that the Revil lost the two big lateral dual cannons of its sister-ship, but I liked that it had extra smaller du...

Re: Gundam 40th Anniversary Special Movie

That was an exceedingly interesting reinterpretation of the original. I especially liked the redesigned colony - almost looked more like a Stanford Torus variant rather than the usual O'Neil cylinder. Though it being in Earth orbit rather than one of the Lagrange points was sort of odd to me, but it...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

That so? I went in a different direction with the DOM myself - I made it a pre-production prototype that's just been rolled out as a possible replacement for the BuCUE and GaZuOOT (hence the "YMF" model number as opposed to the already-entering-mass-production ZGMF-1000 and ZGMF-2000). When the stor...
