Listener Participation - Ep. 006 - Gifts for the Mech Fan!

Post by Soul Bro Ryu » Mon Dec 10, 2007 1:51 pm

Just in time for christmas, a segment that I had in mind for episode 6 will be based on gift ideas you guys would be best for fans of mecha anime like ourselves. Whether they be affordable or outrageous, I'd like to hear them and the best ones will be mentioned in the next episode.

Thanks for the input and I look forward to hearing your wish lists!

Why, a giant robot, duh.

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, actually. Number 1 on the list for me this year is the Char Custom cellphone! Seriously though, my girlfriend has no problem with my love of mecha as far as anime is concerned, but she draws the line at merchandise. She thinks they're a waste of space, which is a premium where we live, so MGs are out of the question. I'm thinking the answer for us is the HCM-Pro series. I bought the Zeta earlier this year without a clear idea of what the product line was all about, and I found a highly detailed little model that's small enough to sit on a desk. I wouldn't mind a little Hyaku Shiki or Titans Mk. II to go along with it.

A Honda ASIMO. Who doesn't want a cuddly-wuddly liddle robot? :roll:

I would suggest the Gackt 0079-0088 Album, but I heard what they did to Ai Senshi :evil:

The other tracks do sounds much better though, and the ones they did for the Zeta Gundam movie were really good.

A complete PG model collection. While the time investment would be huge you could rest assured in you supreme awesomeness.

For the female fans, a homemade 2-disc album set of every Gundam song by a female artist. Call it "Gundam Girls".

The outfit Char wears at the bar where Kycilia's royal guards locate him during Garma's funeral, including the sunglasses.

I personally would give a mech fan mecha related video games. It doesn't necessary have to be a Gundam game, just GOOD mecha games.

* Armored Core 4 (PS3, XBox 360)
* Front Mission (DS)
* Dynasty Warriors Gundam (PS3, Xbox 360)

For those who don't mind importing
* Another Century's Episode 3 (PS2)
* Super Robot Taisen Original Generations (PS2)
* Super Robot Taisen: Scramble Commander the 2nd (PS2)
* Super Robot Taisen Original Generations Gaiden (PS2)
* Super Robot Taisen W (DS)

Edit:

If you have +$40,000 to blow this Christmas, you can hope and try to buy a Fixed Gundam Platinum. A Gundam miniature made out of pure platinum. I'd snag one if I had the money seeing:

1. It's freaken Gundam miniature!
2. The value of precious metals may go up in the future!

For obvious reasons, Char's mask and helmet. For personal reasons, a guide to drawing Gundams. And, for reasons otherwise, if they make it, a 1/100 scale model of the Ideon. Granted even at that scale, that is still a little over half my height.

$250,000 Diamond Platinum Gundam

Its almost the same as the Platinum Gundam Miniature above except it has diamond mounted on its head.

A replica of the Garland motorcycle from Megazone 23 (with transformation capability, fi you want to spend extra).

When it comes to the outrageous, I always wanted a Cyclone from "Genesis Climber Mosepeda"/"Robotech: The New Generation".

The only motorcycle I'd ever want. ^_^

All I want for Christmas is Haro.

Whats better then a small green ball companion, that seeming serves no purpose except to make your day 90% more awesome.

Put a lil santa hat on him and you got a perfect xmas gift.

I'm with you there, Soul Bro. I'm currently watching the 'The New Generation' and the Cyclones are great... they don't seem to make anime like this anymore.
