Re: The Official Gundam Narrative Mecha Thread Mk I

The only thing left of FF’s Sinanju as of the end of Ep7, IIRC, was its cockpit block/sphere. So an entire internal frame and reactor would’ve had to be built no matter what.
Far likelier that this is an entirely separate mobile suit, either built by the Sleeves or, more likely, provided to them

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

The “Dark Hound” had AGE-2 Normal-style wing binders on its shoulders, and its waist was the AGE-II Magnum’s rather than the stock AGE-2DH. Apart from that and the custom Lancer, I also noticed it seemed to have some sort of retractable blade in its shield, which I think went unused, unfortunately. ...

Re: The Official Gundam Narrative Mecha Thread Mk I

I don't actually care about the presence of the Core Fighter per se. What bothers me is this: I know it's supposed to be a testbed and all, but what nitwit thought it was a good idea to build it with no armor whatsoever on its upper limbs and no armored cockpit hatch ? I mean you could put some turk...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Okay, someone is gonna have to, at some point, remind that kid that TV Tropes lies. Throwing your sword, while it looks cool...is a stupid idea . Even if you have a whole bunch of extra ones. Though hopefully he’s learned that lesson after this first bout. Overall, good start to the series, I think....

Re: Gundam Mega Marathon

just cut your losses and skip it from future viewings ultimately classifying episode 11 as the official ending. Yeah, I typically stop at Ep11 as well when I watch 08th MS Team , because to me that episode feels like the finale, and I like where and how it ends. 12 feels like a tacked-on afterthoug...

Re: UC: Beam Weapon Projectile Speed

Guys, Char told us how he dodged beam attacks in early episodes of MSG, he looked at the rifle itself and avoided being in the direct front of it. As long as one doesn't stay in the direct front of the rifle, one is very not likely to get hit by a shot from it(unless you run into a shot yourself, b...

Re: UC: Beam Weapon Projectile Speed

Right. The first example that comes to my mind is when Gundam-boy jumps the Throne trio at one point late in the first series. To go back to my last couple of posts, the main question is: what is causing the Thrones ' sensors to go off? If it's the actual beam attack being fired , then the three bei...

Re: UC: Beam Weapon Projectile Speed

In animation, we don't see many grunt pilots successfully evade a mid-range beam attack. They're less successful when it's from a battleship. True, but as a general rule, in most series the majority of grunt pilots probably couldn't pilot a mobile suit through New York harbor without smacking headf...

Re: UC: Beam Weapon Projectile Speed

Artistic license in animation means that it's probably very difficult to gauge something like this based on what the animation shows, especially given the fact that *IF* we do take the animated portrayal as gospel truth, the lore doesn't support it IMO. Because it regularly shows mobile suits dodgin...

Re: UC: Beam Weapon Projectile Speed

The main issue then, if I understand correctly, is the question of at what percentage of lightspeed is the resulting beam moving?
And I don't think there's any way of determining that, is there?

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Really there's only one thing I care about with regards to these movies.
Are there any new songs, or is it the same ones that were already in the series?
Because as disappointing IMO as Delta was overall, the songs were mostly pretty great.

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

So quite a while back, after I finished with the custom lineart of the Sinanju Kai(my MG Sinanju/Stein mod), I started to use the larger, hi-res lineart from the Unicorn TV site to put together better images of my custom Unicorn/Banshee MG mod as well.
I never did finish it, though...until now.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Okay, so I saw the mech and character designs on the site yesterday before I watched the preview/prologue. So you can imagine my reaction when I saw a catgirl...and then a rodent in uniform. And then when I realized that Sho Hayami was voicing the aforementioned rodent, that was kind of baffling. Bu...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

I'm actually not a huge fan of most of the mech designs I've seen on the site or in the prologue so far. That GM III variant isn't too bad, but I really don't like...well, any of the three 00-based designs. And that Kapool is just weird . I mean, I get that they're going for something cutesy like th...

Long-clan OZ-00MS Tallgeese [/url], as seen in Episode Zero and Glory of the Losers volume 2. Put that together last night using Tallgeese and Leo Early Type lineart.

Re: Custom Lineart Request Thread 8th Edition

Can't promise any regularity, but since I had a little time for once, I figured I might as well pitch in. So, take the GN-000 0 Gundam , remove the head and replace it with either the head of the GN-00902 SEM or one of the heads of the various RGM-79 GM variants whichever works better. Also maybe re...

Back in the day, I bought all of the first 6 volumes from Rightstuff and thought they were a littl...
