Re: It's Gundam Wing's 20th anniversary

I remember when they started playing the previews for Wing on Toonami, Peter Cullen intro-ing each Gundam. I was big into Transformers and Robotech, (okay, technically I only liked the Macross part of the trilogy) and he thought I would be interested and called me in to check it out. I watched that ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

The humor for this episode was pretty good. A nice lighthearted episode to end the series with and a couple last minute gunpla thrown in for good measure. Hopefully they decide to revisit the Build Fighters universe at some point down the line. It's just so free and open that it could get away with ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

Build Burning has become a literal hack gunplas: a hack job hacked together from various parts of other bots.... I'm guessing they're trying to start a tradition (or trope) seeing as they did the same thing in the original. Of course, Build Strike's repair bash was still symmetrical so it looked at...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

Finally got a clear answer on the Bolden Arms. From the product listing on Amazon : - Contains a variety of exterior armor, missile pods, wings, and claws that can be used to customize your gundam model kits - The joint parts retrofit older models to increase their range of mobility - Runner x 3, In...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

As much as I like Bel as a character, I can't help but feel he's like the anti-Amuro. Both are gifted youngsters but whereas Amuro goes from relying on the Gundam to effectively surpassing it by the end, Bellri starts out as a lauded overachiever and by the end is basically steamrolling everyone wit...

Re: Turn-A Gundam getting a US DVD release!

In general. I think it was also talking about the US market, the didn't specify but that is what I presumed. I'd try to find it again but this was a whole ago so I wouldn't know where to begin. Also, internet facts sooo grain of salt and all that.

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

Does anyone have any good info on the HGBC Bolden Arm Arms? I've heard that it comes with spare joints and have seen it speculated that they're for upgrading old kits, but I can't find a clear explanation.

As someone looking to do a custom build of an old kit this has me extremely interested.

Re: Turn-A Gundam getting a US DVD release!

Nice to see a release date for this and I'm pleasantly surprised that I didn't get sticker shock when I clicked the link. I'll definitely try to pick this up both to support english gundam releases and as one of the few main series I haven't seen. Japanese BDs often go out of print after a while. A ...

Maybe the helms-woman who talks in English every now and then? I believe her name is Steer. At first I just thought they were referring to her position as helmsman (helmswoman?) but I think it's actually her name. Oh, Tomino and your craaazy naming habits. On a related note who does her voice? Her ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Mecha Thread Mk I

But it would be cool if you *did* install a recharge system in a mobile suit. That would basically let you reproduce Lucas's trick without needing to bring the mobile suits into direct contact. What's more, if you gave that recharge mobile suit an Absorb system - or even better, the improved versio...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

Fun episode, but like some I was annoyed by the low particle supply moment at the end. I don't mind it in and of itself but the fact that we've had 40+ eps of BF and Try to world build and establish mechanics and they only bring it up now. Especially egregious because Sakai already had the running d...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Mecha Thread Mk I

Perhaps the gunpla are constantly absorbing Plavsky particles from the battle system and Lucas's Full Cloth expends those particles faster than they can naturally replenish? So it's less about running out of gas and more about fighting at maximum output for the whole battle. Especially if it really ...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

Wish we can have second season of G-Reco...I love the frantic pace of this series, and also the out-of-this world mobile weapon designs it has. Oh definitely the designs are a strong point of the series. Look so insane. :mrgreen: Damn right! They're almost as out-of-this-gundam-world as some of the...

Re: Gundam Breaker 2: Updates and Discussion

If I could say anything is worse about 2 it would be the targeting system. In B1 it rarely took me more than two swaps to get the target I wanted, and getting it in one was pretty common as well. In B2 it feels like they shifted from a proximity based targeting program (algorithm?) to a line of sigh...

Would it be too naive of me to hope that drip feeding us these DLC MS could be a stall tactic so they could develop a larger content update like the first Breaker?

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-I

I don't really want to take sides in the show-quality debate - I'm still working on Try, so I shouldn't go there - but it's probably not controversial to say that the teams-of-three premise hasn't added a lot to the premise.-- Mark That, and they essentially tripled the cast count without expanding...

Having no access to the minutiae of FT's details I'm still going to have to say no, TV wasn't nearly as weird, and it was a bit more subtle with it's weird. At this point I think the only hope for FT is to keep throwing on the wacky and hope that it eventually loops back around into serious territor...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

Generally I'm not fond of hijack/capture episodes but the arrival of the G-IT crew had real impact to it.
As an aside I finally have to confess that until it debuted I thought that Gaitrash was a nickname everyone came up with because they disliked the mobile suit's design.

(And yes, the Portent IS an original design rather than being based off of the Sakibure as everyone seems to believe.
