Re: The Mouse Is Strong With This One.

will there be a Star Wars ride at Disney World, There's actually been a Star Wars-themed ride of some kind at both Disney World and Disneyland since at least the late '80s/early '90s. Same with an Indiana Jones-themed stunt show (since that's another Lucasfilm property). I have fond memories of exp...

Re: Because That One Word in the Title Kinda Sounds Like Gun

One thing I found particularly neat about the video was that while most of it was the more recognisable/iconic mobile suits (RX-78-2, Zakus, etc.), you gradually see more and more variety over the course of the video, until the end where it practically becomes a game of "spot the Gundam," with so ma...

Re: My friend's review of WoW: Mists of Pandaria

^ What they said. I've been an avid WoW player for over four years now; I came in at the tail end of Burning Crusade, raided with my guild's progression team through Wrath and Cataclysm, and I'm still playing now. I got my main to 90 in five days after MoP launched. But I agree that the review reall...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-9

^ Well, it did suddenly get shunted from a nice late Friday afternoon slot to an early Saturday morning death slot sometime in the late summer/fall of '96 (it was in that 6:30 am slot as of at least October that year, based on an issue of Newtype I have from that era). And I don't know when the prod...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-9

Hey, maybe now that AGE has the lowest overall ratings of any Gundam series, finally pushing GX out of that bottom spot, that will be the series they'll pretend never existed instead of GX, and that will finally get some attention again. [/impossible wishful thinking] (No really, the chances of that...

Re: Create the next Gundam TV Series

As much as I loved Gundam X, I'd much rather they left it alone rather than run the risk of a disappointing sequel. And frankly, if it's set so far into the future that the original cast is gone, they're better off just making it an entirely separate AU anyway. Agreeing 100% on this. It's the reaso...

Re: Gundam cliches you could do without?

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

Somehow I convinced my fiancé to watch AGE. I don't know how, since most of the things I said to him about it were complaints, but I did. He liked the first arc for the most part, then started getting frustrated with the second arc, especially the gods-awful treatment of the female characters. He re...

Re: Victory Gundam

Right from the start, I took that scene with Queen Maria as being staged, that the people who were "miraculously healed" were just acting. If there's one thing I've noticed, it's that Zanscare is remarkably good at propaganda. And what better way to get the masses to put all their faith in their que...

So I'm finally all caught up with AGE after months of severe procrastination. Blew through all 40 episodes in less than a week, then watched 41 last night. And yet the only contribution I can make to this thread right now is that when watching the Fawnfarsia in action, I spent the rest of that episo...

Re: The Power Rangers/Super Sentai/Tokusatsu thread

I don't know...maybe it's just me, but I feel like one of the only PR/Ameri-toku fans who didn't like Beetleborgs at all. I didn't care for the kid factor, and the thing with the haunted house and the related supporting characters did nothing for me. In fact, the haunted house characters often annoy...

There's a lot of potential in this part of it...how Zanscare rose to power, how the Federation fell into such disarray, how ...

Re: The Power Rangers/Super Sentai/Tokusatsu thread

I really enjoyed VR Troopers myself. It was similar enough to PR to satisfy me, but different enough that it didn't feel like a PR clone either. I question their using a few different Metal Hero shows to pull it all together, but somehow, it worked. It's one of the other Saban series that's getting ...

Re: Victory Gundam

Well, I finished Victory on Friday after a whirlwind marathon. Unexpected unemployment does occasionally allow one time to do such things. And yeah, I've now seen what people mean by "kill 'em all," based on how many characters died that I didn't expect to die. I knew about the Shrike team--everyone...

And still one more for Gundam X that I just figured out during a recent re-watch of it. During the Estard arc, there is a general named Lee and an advisor named Grant, and they don't get on all that well with each other because of their differing opinions on how to resolve the current crisis. Lee an...
