Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors X

After the YF-29, it looks like Bandai is on a roll with the 1/100 model kit line.

Re: Macross Frontier Movies

Not at all surprised, since the bitchier of the two love interests always wins in Macross series :lol: Not in the original, she didn't. Minmay IMO was far more of a stuck-up bitch than Misa, and Hikaru ended up going with the latter. Well, that's where we disagree. Granted, I haven't seen all of th...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors X

i think the reason they are posting either the MG or PG pics is to emphasize that they are going to capture a lot of their features in the RG kit. in any case, i am absolutely getting this kit once it's released :)

Re: Stealth in the AU Gundam

I'm not an expert in stealth and the related technologies, but I think Radar absorbent material / coating from what I know does not absorb all radiowaves being sent out by radar systems to a target craft. Highly reflective angles may help, similar to the ones on the F-117A and F-22, but in the end, ...

Re: Question of validity - Gundam 00-Trailblazer mecha lineart.

That is indeed the official website, and MAHQ not having the complete profile for the 00 movie mecha doesn't mean it's not legit, but that Chris is just probably busy with work and life outside MAHQ 8)
