Re: UC Character List - Gundam

Well, I actually have one of such list, which obviously is ever-growing. Indeed, it's a bit more complex than the one you're referring to (for instance it includes also original Japanese name, alternative spellings, affiliantion and so on), and although for now it covers only U.C. characters, it has...

Re: Gundam Side Story: Missing Link MS

Still don't know what the missing link is actually My personal hypothesis is that the "missing link" is the story itself: as it can be noticed from the promo video, the "path" of Marchosias and Slave Wraith serves as a sort of bridge among the events of the various gaiden , literaly crossing them (...

Re: Gundam Side Story: Missing Link MS

It appears that the AMX-018 has replaced the Breda. http://amx003ck.web.fc2.com/axisms.html Well, I wouldn't be that sure, since the linked page makes a few other questionable assumptions. For instance (besides a couple of weird German transliterations) it lists an otherwise unknown version of Jagd...

Re: Gundam Side Story: Missing Link MS

can anyone tell what rank Vincent is from this picture? He's a Neo zeon shoosa , i.e. the same reank as Char at the beginning of Mobile Suit Gudnam . Grey ZII suggests that they may have been mass produced in limited quantities, perhaps to compete with the Re-Gz. Light blue must be Vincent's person...

Re: Gundam Side Story: Missing Link MS

It's weird seeing 2 Gundams on Neo Zeon (ZII, Pale Rider) The ZII doesn't belong to Neo Zeon: as can bee clearly seen on the promo video, the MSZ-008 actually attacks them, but stops when he recognizes Vincent Gleissner's unit and the Pale Rider-inherited head of the Todesritter. Furthermore, if yo...

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)

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.

However, one of the greatest and still pending mysteries (which probably would be never be solved) is the ident...
