Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

They're cosmetically different, and the armament isn't the same. The Gundam Gerbera has a long beam rifle with an integrated beam jutte for intercepting enemy beam sabers, and a shield. It also has a pair of beam sabers, which are stored on its backpack. The Gerbera Tetra also has beam sabers, but t...

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

Maybe. Anyway, just for giggles, here is the Aerial recolor with the original backpack

And, since I had nothing better to do, I went ahead and did the rear views as well:
Simple Recolor
Modified backpack. This one was a fair bit more challenging than I expected, but I did my best.

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

So I finally saw the Witch from Mercury prologue last night, and...

I did a thing..

Started off as just a recolor, and then I got the idea to mod the backpack. Might do a rear view at some point.

Re: Purging Armor on Full Armor Mobile Suits

Another example is the Duel Gundam's Assault Shroud, which it purges during its fight against the Forbidden.

Re: What changes would you make to certain Gundam series?

I honestly had a problem with the entire concept of the dead guy being replaced by his identical twin brother who also adopts the same name. So what I would do, IF I used Lyle at all, is keep him to a minor character. And maybe change his appearance somewhat to differentiate the two. As for the new ...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Mecha Thread Mk I

Guess so. I'm not sure how I feel about that because I'm generally not fond of the concept, but we'll see how it's implemented. I do find it interesting that a production-model Gundam variant is appearing in the prologue already though.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Strictly speaking this is more a mech than an anime comment per se, but I am exceedingly curious about the Pharact, myself. The enormous, articulated heels look to me to actually be more the back panels of the leg armor, which is on a joint for some reason. Additionally, those six "eyes" o...

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

Exactly. In the third variant, the 0-Raiser is basically dismantled and its support systems are installed in the 00 itself via a modified backpack and the new binders, plus the increased size and number of control antennae - with a Haro docking port being added to the cockpit. Red Haro completely ta...

Re: The Protection conferred by Phase Shift Armor

I don't think so, because the Providence's shield is the same color regardless of whether its Phase Shift is active or not. Looking at this screenshot , in which its Phase Shift is active , the shield is the same light gray as the rest of the body. But looking at it pre-deployment like in this scree...

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

I went back to try to recover what I could. What I was able to find, I edited the links. In the case of some (like the IBO stuff), the links are dead because I did newer versions of the same design, in which case I usually left a note to the page where they updated version was posted as I was unable...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

The teaser visual depicts the protagonist of the series and Gundam Aerial, the protagonist’s Mobile Suit. Oh YES!!! FINALLY, we have a female Gundam pilot as the main protagonist. I was already curious to see this, but now I really can't wait. As for the mech designs...I'm liking the Gundams. Very ...

Re: Gundam 0080 is getting a new manga that retells the anime

I just hope this one doesn't go off the rails, narratively speaking, the way the 0083 manga adaptation did.

Re: Gundam General Audience?

To add on to what Mafty said about the more "realistic" relative appearance of the late-80s-to-early-90s OVAs especially with regards to hair colors, the same holds true with 0080. Off the top of my head, I cannot remember any single character in 0080 that didn't have a more or less normal...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Good to know, thanks.
So based on what PowerdGNFlag mentioned, if we don't start seeing more information around February, it's a pretty safe bet to assume an October release date then?

Re: Color of Beam Sabers

The ELS-assimilated mobile suits in the 00 movie and the Eldora Army units in Re:Rise also had a darker purple color that I don't think we've seen very often.
