Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

I think the combination of that crest + the black coloring is a sort of trademark for Kycilia's corps, since the Zaku IIs Erisie was initially recalling are actually seen in volume 23 of the manga, inside A Baoa Qu fortress during the "civil war" scenes between Kycilia loyalists and the pro-Artesia ...

Re: Neo Zeon MS use by EFSF? (Also, Hyaku Shiki question)

Interesting question. The first examples that come int my mind right now are the AMX-101 and AMX-10K deployed by the Raven Squad in the recent manga Mobile Suit Gundam U.C.0094: Across the Sky . These units - painted in the distinctive black coloring of the team - are used in a series of mock fights...

Re: TMS-007X Z Gustav

As said, the story is alternative compared to the originary one, so that many things are more or less completely changed. Just to name a few: - Kamille is enlisted in the AEUG from the very beginning; - Quattro is sided with the Titans, and pilots an RX-100 Hyaku Shiki (i.e. substantially identical ...

Re: TMS-007X Z Gustav

In a nutshell, the Z Gustav - a MS based on the data retrieved by the escaping Zeon forces from the RX-78-2 relic recovered at A Baoa Qu - is the Gundam of the "zeonified AEUG", as depicted by Kazuhisa Kondo in the manga Side Story of Gundam Zeta . Here the author provides his own alternative interp...

Re: MAN-08S Helios & Sand Angler class Fort Apache

the existence of the AMX-008M and MAN-08S-M would derive not he question of whether or not there's a dedicated ship for deploying these marine units, in which case I would like to assume that this blue Sand Angler class ship is the prime candidate for such role. Exactly: caption text of the Fort Ap...

Re: [Yatate Bunko] - Anaheim Laboratory Log

The idea seem nice. Of course, nothing completely new: after all, things like the M-MSV and MSV-R lines, as well as Kazuhisa Kondo's Anaheim Record manga (partly also Vanishing Machine ) share similar premises. The key image seem to suggest that they will chiefly focus on previously unpublished vari...

Re: G Reconguista MS/MA Based On Zeon Units

In my opinion - besides actual cameos as the museum relics or the wrecked MSM-07 - the most obvious descendant / reference to old Zeon MSs throughout the series is the Z'Goggy.

Re: Random Gundam Tech Tidbits

As far as I can read (and understand!), the caption of the Todesritter's hyper beam saber says more or less that these kind of large beam sabers - provided of increased power output - were produced within the project Z, and are used for instance by units as the Mk-V.

Re: New Gundam Ace manga: Crossbone Gundam Dust

Good job, as usual, Deacon! But why, concerning Ash King's nickname you're saying ash really doesn't do anything As far as I can tell, the kanji 灰 means exactly "ash" (in the sense of fire remains), so in my humble iopinion "The Undying Ash" would work fine, also because this seems quite likely a pu...

Well, surely it's not an "official" source, but the recent Yoshihiro Sono manga Mobile Suit Acguy MSM-04 is settled in U.C. 0086 and apparently shows the M.I.P. still existing as a fairly autonomous company within Side 3.
