I hope they keep doing more stuff with MTs, maybe they could make a special mode where you have to missions as a MT
because MAGA
Doing a couple missions as an MT and then graduating to an AC would be amazing. Particularly if you get your ass blown out by an AC pilot to end off the MT session.

Yoji Shinkawa would be cool, and he could draw portraits for the pilots that'd you'd see in briefings or when they talk on the comms.

Don't do walker builds myself but they can look pretty neat.

I've gotten to the point where I'm ready to do something absolutely crazy, and build a life-sized mock-up of a severed zaku head to bring to cons. The key question is though, what's the exact scale to build it to? I've seen so many different builds, including multiple different sizes officially made by bandai, but need to know just how big a real zaku head would be.

Anyone know the dimensions?

Also, general Zeon thread if you want.

Take what you feel is the most accurate model and scale it up accordingly.
I'd rather hard numbers.
Nothing official exists, that's why I suggest a set of calipers and a lot of time spent measuring an MG or PG.

I'll be honest /m/. Im actually writing a mecha story as we speak. Sadly I'm writing it in my own language, so I have no idea if I can translate it to english. Basically it is a reverse version of the HG Wells ''War of the worlds''. Basic story is this:
>Humanity has abandoned war, and is just about ready to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the universal peace treaty.
>An alien race sabotages an orbital space station city and crashes it down to earth, hitting the celebration and causing horrible damage to earth.
>Humanity goes back to it's war like nature and travels to the aliens planet to destroy it.
>They land in their space ships, come out in their mechas and start slaughtering all the relatively primitive aliens (known as slimes) in sight with extreme prejudice.
>The main character (Emil Sturer) want revenge on the aliens really bad, because his bigger brother (Moritz Sturer) died as a hero, when he tried to save the spacestation from falling.
>Humans terraform the planet, kill alot of the inhabitants with cruel means and start mining the valuable minerals that the alien planet possesses.
>The mc also has a rivalry with the masked leader of the elite mecha squad (Max Dicker).
>Soon alot of their mecha teams start getting wiped out, and the mc's team is sent to investigate how the aliens manage to fight back.
>They go out and get ambushed by the same elite squad, that now works to protect the aliens.
>The mc faces the elite squads leader and fights him. The masked man then reveals his identity to be Moritz Sturer and that he didn't die in the station crash, but instead was the one who was hired by the government to cause the calamity, in order to bring back the need for war, and to justify aggressive colonization of alien planets in order to ensure that humanity is the dominant species in space.
>The mc now teams up with his brother, the aliens and the elite squad and they start a rebellion against the government bigwigs.

Gundam: Mysterious Operation

Entirely told from the PoV of an unnamed Gundam pilot, only ever referred to as "Pilot". Said individual is running a long, one-man army assault behind enemy lines, having to forage for his own food as well as deal with various planted agents helping to keep his Gundam operational.

The whole time, he's guided by the voice of a female Operator, who serves as his handler, even when he has to temporarily hijack and use enemy MS. Somehow, she always knows where and how to contact him, and deliver new mission orders. It comes to a point that the viewers wouldn't be able to tell if Pilot is only imagining Operator's voice, or if she really is omniscient, especially as the war drags on and Pilot gradually appears to be losing his mind. To help illustrate this, there will even be an implied scene of Pilot masturbating while Operator appears to alternate between whispering naughty things to him and scolding him for fapping to her.

The ending has Pilot fighting against all odds in a climactic battle, which includes him eventually abandoning his Gundam and hijacking an enemy Gundam in the process, fighting solely so he could still live to hear Operator's voice, and rampaging to the end. The ending is left open, as we hear Pilot talking to Operator, though the audience wouldn't know if it's his dying imagination or him actually still alive and awaiting the next orders.

Why are Gundam mecha so blocky and toy-like? I don't like them. That's seriously affecting my enjoyment of the entire franchise. How do I start liking these ugly-ass monstrosities so I can enjoy one of the most influental and iconic mecha series without cringing everytime a mech is on screen?

Pic related is an exception, this dude cool as fuck.

When Gundam came out, their designs were much less toy-like than all their contemporaries. It was a long iterative process to get mecha designs that looked more like weapons than action figures. Obviously, 40 years later we've developed further, but you have to look at it in the context of the 70s.
Pic related is from the same designer as the original Gundam and Zaku, two years prior.
Some titans suits would make great feddie suits with slight editing, the aoz hizack looks way more like an earth suit, and the Byarlant custom too
Still looks less garish than most modern Gundam units desu.

I fucking hate autocorrect.
Colony Drop any fucker who thought it was a good idea.
The Forbes interview with Nagano said he straight-up did all the early mecha design work for Zeta, ZZ, and CCA, before the higher ups dragged Okawara from his planned break to basically overhaul most of Nagano's designs.

So are the Nagano Quib and Hachicca from that work, or was he actually asked to draw them after already being burned by Bandai?
>overhaul most of Nagano's designs
You misread, Okawara was dragged in by Bandai to contribute his own designs. Nagano quit because there were too many cooks in the kitchen and then Fujita, whom he hired to be his underling, took over after he left. ZZ and CCA was when his designs were rejected by Bandai.

The new Qubeley and Hachiacca are brand new designs made as promotional material for Tomino's Zeta movies. The only one that used one of his rejected designs was the Nahatgall (based on his Nightingale), and even that was based on his first draft rather than the one he actually submitted.

Galvion gets folded into the Transformers franchise. Which side is the main mech on an what's his personally?
>gattaiger is apparently lost in its original Japanese language but survives intact thanks to its Italian release
I swear I've heard this sentence apply to multiple, unrelated series over the years.
Probably a decepticon since his vehicle mode isn’t an existing earth vehicle. Probably stayed behind on Cybertron and acts as Shockwave’s enforcer/warden for that mind prison they kept the Combaticons in.

Episode 2 of Panzer World Galient is out!


Jojo, Churull, and Azuves set off to find the Iron Giant Galient, rumored to be buried in White Valley. However, their presence will attract unwanted attention...

Thank you for doing this!
Will the OVAs be subbed too?
I thought Galient had already been subbed though?

But she clearly hangs them when she takes them off.
I doubt she will ever run out of mana if she is linked with Hayate like how the Wolkenritter was

>how would the Kampfer fair in Patlabor
It wrecks and completely revolutionises warfare with its nuclear-powered physics-defying bullshit, Schaft either get butthurt or make capturing its technology first priority.
Seriously, it's larger and far faster than most labors, even if you reduce it to just its shotgun and built-in weapons it's still above and beyond Patlabor's more realistic units. Beam sabers alone are a game-changer.

But that stock footage looks great. That's the whole point of stock footage.
Why does it matter? The characters and story are what's important.
Yeah, a shame about Wing's attempt at characters and story...
Angel Links, Crest of the Stars,and Exkaiser looked fairly dumpy a lot of the time as well. Sunrise had other low budget shows, the Gundam stuff just gets remembered because it is part of a huge franchise.

I like the manga batter then the TV series it stays to one main plot, the only thing I hate about Patlabor is Ohta, why has the police not kicked him out for his bullshit?
People need to stop bullying one of the best characters in Patlabor. One of the entire themes of Patlabor is how Section 2 Division 2 is such an eclectic group of characters who all come together and balance each other out while keeping everything amusing. Ohta's a great guy, leave him alone.
I’ll put those on my to watch list.

I dunno man, the other guy understood what I meant just fine. I love mecha, but the stories they tend to be attached too give me a strong case of the ‘tisms.

If the computer god thing in VOTOMs is too supernatural, you should also give Armor Hunter Mellowlink a look. That's a VOTOMs sidestory that doesn't involve the stuff with Wiseman or Perfect Soldiers (the only role the latter plays is that a shipment of jijirium is a plot point), it's just one guy on foot fighting mechs with nothing but his anti-armor rifle and his wits, MacGuyver style.
