Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Chekov's Bulldozer: Exactly how did the Zeon MSM unit find their way into Jaburo again? ;) In the manga, Jaburo takes place before the three flashback volumes. Char got the information about the underground passage from the local Yanomami tribe. Even the official website says that Char got his cont...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

Except we see Io escape his GM's destruction in the same cockpit block Io's cockpit block in the anime looks similar to the one that all RGM-79s have always had (while that's the first Master Grade GM, the independent Cockpit Block was also featured in the 2.0 MG kit ). And, since the GM Cannon sha...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

On a site note, in the Cucuruz Doan Side Story manga, a Zaku is seen using a Dom-style heat saber sometime in October, which can mean one of two things; the Dom's heat saber was originally a weapon built by Zeonic that was meant to be issued to the Zaku and merely issued to the Dom after its develo...

Oops, my bad, then.

Anyway, this confirms who's doing the manga: Junji Ohno, the same guy who did Missing Link.

M72 Lakota jeep

Watching the latest episode of The Origin's OVA, I was glad to see the appearance of an old friend: the good, old Earth Federation Forces M72 Lakota ½-tonne light jeep. Based on my personal observations, it has appeared thus far in War In The Pocket (debut), Stardust Memory (Gato rides hidden in the...

Re: Zaku The Origin

from the iv preview ms-04 still looks very close to the manga, with some changes on skirts and arm to be a bit more zaku-like. The front skirt and cable attachment point at lower torso is a bit gouf-ish for me. Have they shown any preview images of the MS-04 from episode IV? All the ones I've seen ...

Re: Zaku The Origin

http://www.ultimatemark.com/gundam/images/msd.jpg The above is a lineup of the Mobile Worker Model 01 Late Type and Model 01 Final Type, the MS-04 from the comic, the YMS-03 Waff from the anime, and the standard MS-05 Zaku I. I did my best to get them all in proper scale, though I had to guess at t...

Volume 7

Some random observations on the latest manga volume (thanks, Deacon!): We see that the Dolos is able to berth a Jukon -class sub with room to spare. Although we don't have any numbers on any of the Jukons , the Dolos has an overall width of 351 meters. For a rough estimation, a modern ballistic mis...

Sunrise sure loves their recaps. Skip the first 4 minutes if you need to.
Quite coincidentally, the 14 minutes cover exactly until the end of volume 10 (5 for the Vertical release).

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

After reading Chris' review of the episode, I can't but help agree with him. While very pretty in a visual sense, especially with the cool not-teenage-friendly character designs, the whole thing is more or less pointless. People die left and right for no reason. Nobody has a real impact in the story...

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

Other particles besides gamma ray photons can be produced depending on the conditions. Particle-antiparticle reactions are very finicky. There's all those elementary particles to consider. For instance, positrons and protons do annihilate each other, but only under certain circumstances. But I thin...

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

An electron-positron annihilation usually produces two or more gamma ray photons, as well as other particles. There are some special cases I've read about, but I'm no physicist. The resultant particles conserve momentum by separating in different directions, or so I've read. Wrong. An electron-posi...

I can't remember, but didn't Archangel use the Lohengrin to create some kind of effect that helped them escape the atmosphere?

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

Now, we are assuming the kits are talking about locking sabers, which we don't see much of. We do see them blocking one another, but not necessarily locking together like you see in other Gundam shows a lot. What's the difference, exactly? Also, does this have anything to do with Kira doing that St...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

I wasn't aware that the GM EVER had ejectable coreblock systems - I always thought it just used a standard cockpit system (hence MS being a coffin). I'd assume it was also in the anime too then. If that's canon then I'm wrong and thanks for the correction. Eh, don't sweat it, Domino. I thought it w...

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

The PG Astray Red Frame kit manual is a bit more helpful. It specifically explains that beam sabers can't be used for locking swords using the hilt guard (鍔追り合い), which is a standard sword-fighting technique in which the guard prevents the blade you're blocking from sliding over and cutting off all...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

doesn't mean that they were customized like the original Mua brotherhood MS with their own coreblock systems At least in the anime, I don't think that the Mua Brotherhood's GMs were equipped with V-Project-like Core Blocks. From the model kits, we know that GMs replace the core fighter for a simple...
