I really, REALLY like that black Chaos mod...very sinister.
The Impulse mod is pretty cool too.

Strike doesn't change colors when swapping packs and Impulse does because the Impulse is equipped with VARIABLE PHASE SHIFT, an improvement upon conventional PS, wherein the MS's computer automatically adjusts the PSA's settings to the best optimal setting for that particular configuration. The Stri...

Note that the models used in photonovels are frequently models that may or may not have been released as actual model kits on the market. Just within the CE, I can think of Testament, Out Frame, Dreadnought H, and Kaite Madigan's customized DINN RAVEN, to name a few. (Really, REALLY wants a DINN RAV...

Alex dodged the Odin Gundam's charge with a short leap sideways, out of its line of fire, and slashed at its head with the beam sword.

As far as we know, not, actually. Er... doesn't the rifle only take one beam saber, not the pair? Check out step 15 . And the lineart as well . The "Hyakurai" beam rifle's "bayonet" hardpoint takes the docked pair, not a single saber. You can see that quite clearly in the uncolored pic in the upper ...

I remember some on the Archangle ask why Kira call the Strike Gundam. The replay (by Mu?) was that it's the OS. Actually, as I recall, it was between Mwu and Murdoch. IIRC(and I could be wrong) Mwu asked why "the kid" called it a "Gundam", and Murdoch said it was because of its OS...he tried reciti...

My problem with the Akatsuki's beam saber hardpoint on the rifle is that it only has a single pair, so if it sticks them on the rifle, and then that's damaged/destroyed, Akatsuki's up s*** creek without a paddle - no melee weapon. What I think should've been done is design the hardpoint to mount a s...

The real LOL about this whole affair is that they changed the length of the Archangel in both its SEED and Destiny profiles, but left the old length in the Dominion's profile.

I wouldn't mind knowing as well... :)

And since we're talking about bad Engrish, what about the horribly mangled spelling of the Strike's weapons in Seed Episode 2(or was it 3? I forget...I think it was 2)? That still makes me cringe every time, and I've seen it hundreds of times.

As the Odin Gundam charged towards his Gundam, Alex timed his move very carefully, then leaped sideways as his opponent swung, the hammer missing him, and brought the beam saber down, slicing the enemy Gundam's forearm at the wrist, while firing his torso-mounted machine guns at the Odin's body as h...

(which Shinn struggled in until he got the Destiny) Struggled? I beg to differ. As a matter of fact, IMO Shinn was depicted as LESS skilled after he got the Destiny, because at that point Fukuda had decided he wasn't the good guy anymore and started focusing almost exclusively on Kira and his littl...

You can blame it on transliterated English, tenses and sentence structure are completely different in Japanese. It's not just Gundam it happens all the time anime, hence the infamously amusing "All your base are belong to us!". And then there's Meer's equally amusing letter in I-forget-which-episod...

Dalong.net lists SIX different releases of the RX-78, with only two of them being color variants(The RX-78-3 Gundam G3 ver1.0 and the RX-78 Gundam Casval Deikum Custom). I really, REALLY don't want to see another RX-78-2 unless it's the Evolve 15 Redesigned version, which I always thought looked rat...

"Agreed." Alex replied as he prepared himself, facing the Odin Gundam, his beam saber still active. "But it isn't over yet." Tensed, ignoring the dull ache he still felt from just below the elbow onwards from his completely numb forearm(the end result of the Gundam's own arm being gone), He prepared...
