Re: Galbaldy and Gelgoog

As has been stated already, knocking the Hizack for its performance is unfair, to say the least. If the Titans didn't like it, they would not have used it. The Hizack was a good all-around MS, much like the original Zaku II, and like the Zaku II it was the benchmark for other MS of its era. IIRC the...

Re: The 0080 Effect

Forgive me for bumping an old thread, but I just came across some info relevant to the original topic. First, let me wave issue 36 of Bandai's B-CLUB magazine in front of my monitor. (Here you go.) Published in October 1988 - about five months before the first episode was released - it provides an ...

Re: Jegans on the Space Ark in F91

Seeing that the ark was a training ship i would have expected it to have the jegans onbord as training units and a more limited supply of newer model ms in its team. That would be a good presumption of Ark 's situation when it appears in the episode. There is a notable story jump between the flight...

Re: Member Introduction Thread Mk. III

Welcome to MAHQ and don't worry we don't bash people here for liking SEED. Personally its one of the best AU Gundam shows. :mrgreen: If I hated...

Re: New Season Anime

My picks for the season, thus far: Asura Cryin' 2: It's good to see that Tomino-sama has heirs in the bloody angsfest story department. Female cast much fun as well. :wink: Sacred Blacksmith: Fun little fantasy series, definitely a new take on the Sword Of Power, elf-tan love, and somebody in manga ...

Re: Games workshop paint?

Dominion-kun uses the GW spray paints for certain kits, and they have all turned out looking well. He took my no grade Gerbera Tetra and sprayed it the Red color over a grey primer coat, which made the kit look awesome! Sort of like a Johnny Ridden version. B) As a rule, priming the pieces grey, whi...

Re: Which Dom type should I buy?

No, no, you must buy all of them! All the HGUC Dom kits are excellent! No Dom enthusiast can afford to be without even one! Why yes, I do own all the individual HGUC Dom kits. Why do you ask? :) The HGUC Doms always get good features, and for the most part, enough accessories to make them fun. Also,...

Re: Jegans on the Space Ark in F91

You do know that EFSF/AEUG ships can carry more MS than the hero's Gundam and his budies' MS, right? :D Seriously, it is quite likely that Space Ark has a 4-pack squad of Jegans aboard as a standard complement of MS. They get to do all the standard MS roles in the story, which you saw in the animati...

Re: Galbaldy and Gelgoog

The Zeon tendency to show certain MS in Red , Red , and Red is just keepin up with the old Char Aznable principle of Brightly Colored Badass . Want to convey at a glimpse that the pilot of given MS is not to be trifled with? Paint it differently, preferably two-tone if possible. Even this shade will...

Re: Are Bullpups the gun of the future?

On the infantry level, bullup rifles do have their advantages. However, neither the USA nor Russia has ever adapted or marketed a bullpup rifle for military use. So, the bullpup design may not be all it's been cracked up to be. That being said, most of the bullpup service rifles have not been adopte...

Re: Languages in Gundam

Given the rate that contemporary colloquial Japanese is blending English loan-words into their everyday speech, it is likely that Japlish really is the lingua franca of any given Gundam universe. :D Regarding the "your Zeon accent is too strong", I would say in UC Gundam, the various established col...

Re: Why do Headshots Work on Mobile Suits?

Part of the MS incapacitated by headshot seems to work on the principle that the MP MS turn into cardboard stuffed with fireworks when it is dramatically suitable. Remember the old anime rule that everything explodes! It makes for a good disabling hit, since a headless MS pilot might decide that the...

Re: Galbaldy and Gelgoog

If you are willing to go with the principle that form follows function, the Gelgoog Jager and Galbaldy Beta should have a close appearance. Both MS types are speedy "hi-mobility" types designed to gun 'n run, or suddenly close to an in-your-face blast. So, there would be a certain resemblance. Now i...
