Obsolete submission thread

Did not realize that the Obsolete thread was wiped out.

Don’t remember where my postIMG images are, so I’ll have to do this again.

For now, I’ll use this post to put up stats on Exoframes that showed in the ONA.

STATUS: Mostly complete. Linearts are saved with Chris last time he posted here.

Re: Obsolete submission thread

I was going to message you about the information being lost. I tried to recover what you previously posted via the Internet Archive, but the old thread wasn't indexed. I have all the lineart of everything that appeared in the series, but what I really could use help with is dividing the frames up by factions and getting names of all pilots. Also anything about the spinoff manga. Thanks for reposting, and sorry about the lost info.

No worries. I'm starting with the Exoframe info provided by the site in English. That's easy.

https://project-obsolete.com/en/exoframe/

It's just that the Exoframes provided by Hobby Japan(?) aren't translated. And that's a pain. Not sure if the actual HJ book has it though.

I checked the manga. No new Exoframes, but it's been a while.

After that, the next post will be from the HJ-exclusive stuff.

Re: Obsolete submission thread

For the Exoframes featured in the "Redundant" section, I'll need another pair of eyes to check for relevant information on the specs/weapons/gear not mentioned in the ONA's Redundant pages.

Anyone have access to Hobby Japan issues from August-September 2020; November 2020-February 2021?

Re: Obsolete submission thread

Updated info on Obsolete Redundant stuff. Can't seem to figure out the weapons for the Nagagutsu and Vykhukhol.

Otherwise, converted the height data used from mm to m.
