Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

Here's the name, if anyone can translate
It says "equipped with high mobility type unit" 8)

By the way, massive art contribution, indeed!

Re: Advance of Zeta - Reboot

The first image you linked to is the ARX-124R Re-Hyze, whereas the other two pictures are a form of the Mars Zeon Captured TR-6 (more in particular a Keehaar II configuration) 8)

Re: MS Catalog

Definitely agree on the fact that adding mecha from all the Crossbone mangas (i.e. Crossbone Gundam , Skull Heart , Steel 7 and Crossbone Ghost ) would be great! The same goes for the Dolmel and the originals from Gihren's Greed (e.g. the Gyan counterparts for the Gelgoog variations, or the High Mob...

Re: Federation Space Forces Fleets [U.C.0080~U.C.0090]

Stallion, Il Nido, Centaur: My, three more Pegasus-class ships! Where did they come from? They come from the old Family Soft games for PC-98 Advanced Operation (settled in U.C. 0089) and Return of Zeon (settled in U.C. 0092). In general, there are a lot more Alexandria & Irish class ships listed th...

Re: MS Catalog

Talking about rare books, Mark do you have Gundam X Mobile Suit Collection? Well, if it can be useful, I do physically have that book. 8) Among the most interesting things, it lists some ships never seen in the anime series, as I mentioned some years ago in this thread: http://www.mechatalk.net/vie...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VI

Well, it seems to have also parts derived from the MRX-010 Gundam Mk-II (arms) and the AMA-X2 / AMA-002 Neue Ziel or possibly the AMA-00GR Zero G-R (e.g. shoulders).

At any rate it's quite aptly named NZ-999 Neo Zeong 8)

Re: MS Catalog

Well, maybe I can ask your questions.. 1) those electrified wires seem to be a specific equipment of the AMS-119 Geara Doga, since I have at least one source (EDIT: it's The Gundam Chronicles ) deliberately mentioning it among the armament; 2) the "freezy yard" or "freezeyard" is a gelatinous anti-m...

Re: MS Catalog

So can we include into the "unconfirmed" category also stuff like the vulcan guns mounted at the base of the "neck fin" of the AMX-107 Bawoo (seen on episode 18), i.e. pieces not listed in the various sources...or do they deserve a different name (maybe "unlisted armaments")?

Great job once again! Concerning the Extreme Gundam I would like to observe a curious thing: the various configurations of the "regular" model are labeled with the katakana フェイズ, which should be transliterated as " phase ", whereas those of the Type Leo have フェース (which is correctly rendered as " fa...

Re: Xeno Asks: Assorted UC Mechanics questions

Just a flash answer...

The first 4 points would need a much more detailed discussion, so for now let's pick up only question number 5.

According to the kit instructions, those parts are named Helium Control Core.

Re: The Anaheim Gundam List

Sometimes I saw Japanese fan sites claiming that the RX-104 Odysseus Gundam (i.e. the RX-104FF Pweelope without its fligth apparatus) could be a suitable candidate for the "omicron" slot.. However, one of the greatest and still pending mysteries (which probably would be never be solved) is the ident...

Curious tidbits from MS-X

The fact that Yoshiyuki Tomino "recycled" some of his earliest, rejected names and ideas using them in subsequent productions is not a novelty: for instance Emma was one of the earliest proposed names for Mirai Yashima, whereas "Ring of Gundam" was the working title of Turn A Gundam . However, few p...

Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

Just a random remark on the transliteration of an old MSV name. On pag.81 of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Mechanics & World ep 4-6 (thanks to balofo!) the name of the MS-06V-6 is spelled as "Zaku Tank Green Macaque", which in my opinion makes a bit more sense compared to "Green Makaku" currently adopt...
