Must be for a stand or something... there's no hole in the heel in the line art.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

This might be pointless to ask but do the graze moblie suits have thrusters on the feet its got me baffled for a while It's not actually in the feet... it's in the calves. It probably has a lot to do with them being the only built-in thrusters the Graze has. The others on the thighs or the skirt ar...

Re: Act Zaku Development

I can understand 06Rs being rival program with the 09R, since one is from Zeonic and one is Zimmad. But MS-11 and 14 both are programs of Zeonic, they shouldn't be rivals but more like different development targets, say, the Act Zaku being a design for upgrading existing Zakus or utilise whatever p...

Re: Shoji Kawamori's original GP03 proposal

So, we've got another case of Kawamori recycling an old designs, but now it's not a VF. It makes me wonder does he do the same thing with non-Macross shows? Like, is there anything from Aquarion, M3 or Jushinki Pandora that we have seen before? Oh, it's fairly likely. Admittedly, Macross is kind of...

Re: Act Zaku Development

I didn't realize the Hizack develoment borrowed from the Act Zaku as well, which makes sense given the captured ones we see at Jaburo. As Zeonic's first attempt at building a Mobile Suit with the generator output for beam weapons and field motors for the drivetrain instead of the fluid pulse system...

Re: Act Zaku Development

Does the Act Zaku follow a similar principle to the Hizack? Where their reactor can only power one beam weapon at a time. Thus Machinegun + Beam Saber or Beam Rifle + Heat Hawk loadouts? While the limited coverage of the Act Zaku does mention that its generator output was improved to the point of b...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

There's the related forgotten concerns of Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and its ugly duckling other version Robotech . Southern Cross did so poorly in Japan that the show's one and only licensee has stated publicly that Tatsunoko, the studio that animated it, prefers to forget that it exists.

Re: Could anyone make money from cleaning up man-made space debris?

It's a given that even a smallest piece of debris in space could cause disastrous damage if impact at high speed. So, in any scenario which space travel in and out of Earth become common place, would there be any organizations or entities taking up the job of cleaning up these debris? And would tha...

Re: Who comes up with the basic design for mecha?

Studio Nue's 1988 anime adaptation actually followed the design descriptions to the letter. Wait......there's an anime adaptation of Starship Troopers? :o I must watch it. That's one of my favorite sci-fi novels. It's probably the most faithful adaptation of Heinlein's novel... albeit only the firs...

Also to an earlier discussion in the thread, just how much of Macross is available outside of Japan anyway?

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

IMO, most the ones that've been forgotten by time deserved to be forgotten. The Price of Smiles has already basically been completely forgotten and it started its broadcast run two years ago today. Boy was that a stinker. A completely incoherent plot full of random nonsensical gibberish, an obnoxiou...

Re: How powerful is Mazinger Z's Rust Hurricane anyway?

Hey, it's fun to speculate, right? I've recently read an article on rust damage on battleships, which already have tons of anti-rust measures applied to them. So I was just wonder if we want something in real life that could corrode metal as fast as Rust Hurricane, what do we need? If anything, I s...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

It almost seems at times that Delta was closer to being a pure Idol anime/successor to AKB0048, as the mech battles seemed to become secondary to the Idol concerts. [...] Of course the series in general had issues with ignoring characters and plot elements to focus on only a small amount of charact...

Re: Jerid's Baund Doc?(SPOILERS)

The Yellow colored Bound Doc has not been in SRW or G Generation for a long time. SRW Z was the last SRW game to have the Bound Doc and it was Rosamia's pink color, not the Yellow one. G Generation Genesis didn't have the yellow Bound Doc either. Based on what I can find, they took it out starting ...

Re: Jerid's Baund Doc?(SPOILERS)

So... after doing some quick research, the yellow Baund Doc never appears in the anime, movies, or novelization of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam . The explanation for it has changed several times over the years. One explanation that has remained semi-consistent despite the other explanations layered on to...

Re: How powerful is Mazinger Z's Rust Hurricane anyway?

Super robots in general are kind of anathema to consistency... when they aren't explicitly magical or supernatural in nature, they might as well be given their tendency to spontaneously develop new powers as the plot demands or to exhibit wildly varying levels of power depending on the stakes of the...

Yeah, I'm not exactly asked for "good" sequels, just asking for more sequels. And it isn't like mecha fans have a lot of things to look forward to these days. That we aren't seeing tons of mecha anime is all the more reason to not settle for garbage. I think I did read some interviews talking about...

Re: Do you guys think we will see more sequels of old mecha series?

2021 looks like it could be a good year for sequels of mecha series. Right of the bat we have already got Getter Robo Arc and the sequel for Code Geass. Then there is the still ongoing (about to be wrapped up) Evangelion 4.0 and Fafner Beyond. Do you think that we'll get even more sequels for mecha...
