Re: Free!

I enjoyed the first episode, and I think I'll make this one my guilty pleasure for the summer.

Nice to see that sort of fanservice for a change. (gay here also)

Re: Galaxy Kikotai: Majestic Prince

It's Pat!

The teasing in the first couple of group shots in the ending makes me think that they're gonna string it along for a while, at least long enough for some shenanigans in another character building episode.

Re: Valvrave The Liberator

It does make sense to have the battleships though. The module's main spaceport is the bay itself.

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XI

MG RX-78-2 Gundam Ver 3.0
August 2013 4500 yen

Can't really understand what's being said in the Google translated text, but discussion seems to be pointing to it being essentially a 1/100 RG kit.

You didn't miss anything, they've only released it as 1/100.

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XI

Why Astray Red Frame with flight unit? Why not ARF Kai? It's to tie into the two new Astray series coming out (photo novels, I think). The MG kits were based on the designs from the previous series, which takes place chronologically after the new ones coming out. That's why they're just the normal ...

Re: Galaxy Kikotai: Majestic Prince

It seems this show is doing something different. The superiors actually show concern for the pilots' mental well being. It's just one of those little things that had they kept in mind, several series would've turned out completely different. Just imagine how things would've turned out if NERv had at...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Mecha Thread Third Generation

Those elbows don't sit well with me...

I realize, that it being a robot, human proportions aren't necessary for it's function, but it always bugs me when they deviate.

Re: Vividred Operation

To me, it's kinda like they turned Iron Man into a Magical Girl Team (Henshin sequence reminds me of the assembly gantry from the movie).

Which is by no means a bad thing.

Re: Best clear coat for Painted Kits?

Floor acrylic. It's relatively inexpensive, and it works wonders as a final clear coat. It's glossy, so you'll need some additive to flatten it (forgot what it's called, should be available in a hobby store). Something like this . Should be available most anywhere that sells cleaning products. Look ...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XI

It's probably the same situation as The O.

If I'm not mistaken, both were shown a few years ago as possible future releases, I think with some sort of poll to chose.

So they probably just pulled the molds out of storage and are now releasing it, with the potential for Unicorn recolors.

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Mecha Thread Mk I

It just really seems like the Double Bullet isn't really going to transform. It just seems to me that they're just showing that the kit, being based on the same body as Normal still retains the transforming functions. That mode kinda looks cobbled together, like it's being done to show that it can b...

Re: About Macross, should any of it be possible?

With the integration of the Zentradi fleet, the humans gained access to their technologies. They had the Zentradi cloning and genetic technologies at their disposal to fill out the population (rapid cloning, gene splicing etc). As for the production, they had the Zentradi factory satellites. Tell it...

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XVII

Interesting, this would be the first direct source I've seen on the actual method that the Gundams communicate with. Looking at each other slight vibrations huh? I'm guessing you'll need very tough encryption if you do not want other people to not decode it. Such an archaic seeming technique may ha...

Yeah, that's the Delta Plus, without the backpack though.

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XVII

If the Quan[T] has one of its two GN drives in the shield, what the heck happens when it loses the shield? No more twin drive system, no more quantization, no more "connecting peoples' minds" is my guess. I guess we will finally see if Setsuna is a good pilot or not if he loses the TDS. They probab...

Re: Weird Macross Question

Might this be what you're looking for?
It's the VA-3C Custom Invader from Macross Dynamite 7, and it's classified as a variable attack craft.

Here's a profile for the normal version, on the Macross Mecha Manual.

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch & Rumors IX

It's a scene from the manga, not just a model-only gimmick.
