Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk IV

Just saw this while surfing through Twitter. Figured it was worth sharing... Sweet image of the Zaku Mariner: http://twitpic.com/6pawgc No clue what the Japanese says, though. The Japanese actually says Zee Zulu :D Yep, I concur, that's what the Japanese text says. And the presence of the folded up...

Re: what LED's to get for a MG 00 raiser.

yes, i think those are the ones from Bandai Hobby Shop, though looking at this post, it doesn't seem to indicate that you have to buy the MG 00-Raiser Transam mode if you want to buy those red LED units.

Re: Beam Saber Deflections?

We also see the same thing done in F91 by Seabook and Birgit when they fight the Bugs, and I'm pretty sure it's done at some point in Victory as well. Seabook (as Kincaide Nau) does it again with the Crossbone's Beam Zanber to block a VSBR shot from Harrison Martin's F91 in the Crossbone manga (alb...

Re: what LED's to get for a MG 00 raiser.

1. how good are they? worth it to put them in or not? ===> I have the MG Exia Ignition Mode, and based on its reviews and kit description, the MG 00-Raiser uses the same LED unit as the MG Exia. The MG 00-Raiser itself comes with 1 LED unit. (There is another edition of the MG 00-Raiser, China or As...

Re: HG 1/144 GN Sword Full Saber (Hobby Magazine Item)

Bandai may not have it now, but it seems like 3rd party recasters/companies have already given some effort to producing conversion kits for this, such as this one.

Re: What books are you reading?

I just finished "Tongues of Serpents", 6th book in Naomi Novik's Temeraire series. For some reason, this one lacked the epic battles that the previous books had. And Temeraire barely used the Divine Wind... But a good read all in all, lots of character development in this book 8)

The Gundam Wikia articles also mention the following: Green Frame has a different sensor suite that makes its eyes glow yellow instead of green for the rest of the Astrays. Mirage Frame, as its name implies, can also use Mirage Colloid, and was given by Librarian to Rondo Ghina Sahaku for his reveng...

Re: Minor Exia Issue

the handle for the GN rifle (where the blade is connected to via a swivel point) can rotate, allowing the Exia to hold it like a normal sword. it has been used a few times, though as far as i can remember from the show, Setsuna probably used more the "katar" mode of wielding the GN Sword probably fo...

^as far as the scans show, it does seem to have improved poseability, as shown in the 2nd and 3rd panes at the bottom of the scan. the 1st pane also shows it to be taller than the 1st release.
