How did this scene not immediately warrant the Custom Flag getting an MG?I mean I remember back when the episode debuted, the response was astounding on both sides of the planet.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OZfmRbIijA
The 1/100 NG overflag is so kickass and detailed and works in every gimmick so well it needs no mg.
>>17305506while fantastically cheap, the NG is pretty limited in terms of articulation.I think it would have benefited from the extra detail given to MG kits.
>>17305526it also doesn't have Graham's linear rifle from before the establishment of the Overflags.
>>17305533Aka the cool one
>>17305510man , its hard to process thats been a whole decade since that thread....
>>17305663We get old anon. Its what we do.
>>17305510I miss this version of /m/.
>>17305502Those are some HORRIBLE fucking subs.
>>17305502I wonder how Graham would have faired as a OYW ace.
>>17305502>How did this scene not immediately warrant the Custom Flag getting an MG?The design is so skinny that it wouldn't even fit an inner frame. The 1/100 doesn't even have an inner frame but has no hollowness.
>>17307802In my imaginary perfect world, an MG Graham Custom Flag would have better articulation, have better color separation, have more hand options, and would also have the Linear rifle and stolen GN beam saber included as weapon accessories. Also an led option to light up its visor.I mean you can't really knock it at 20 bucks; but there's still a lot of room for improvement.
>>17307791He fared incredibly well against the Gundam due to his speed and piloting skills, however you have to remember that the Custom Flag is basically leagues beyond anything during the early OYW.Putting him in a '79 suit would be a detriment to his overall performance.He would serve much better as a Gryps War ace pilot.
>>17305502Truly the best Char.
>>17307913>Putting him in a '79 suit would be a detriment to his overall performance.Anon said OYW so give him a Jager.
>>17307915No Graham. How many times do I have to tell just because I have Japanese ancestry does not mean I know how to graft Samurai parts onto a flag.Come on Billy we all know you can.
>>17307924Gundam 00 had so much potential for side material, and yet all we got were a handful of (excellent) cd dramas, some really shitty manga, and an artbook set after the events of AotTB.
>>17308047We also got the stage play, and whatever it is Graham (Forma ELS) comes from
>>17308084>and whatever it is Graham (Forma ELS) comes fromThe stage play that was done at the anniversary event (which is unrelated to the recent stage play)
>>17308047There were a few light novels too.
>>17308096Weren't they just retellings of the main story?
>>17305502Hahahaha! You think that anything other than lead gundams and main antagonists can get MGs (if THEY'RE lucky!), you poor naive man.I sure love how if I want my MGs to fight some grunts, they're fucked to only have Zakus, Gelgoogs, Z'Goks, and Doms.
>>17309743> Main antagonist> Dom
The Flag is so cool. Where my fellow members of the Flag Appreciation Group at?
>>17309780Did you fail to read the second sentence?
>>17305502The better question is why the hell there's no kit for the GN Flag?Meanwhile we have dozens of 00 Raiser releases with no worthwhile differences.
>>17309804at least it has a Robot Damashii figure
>>17309786I still love that he just bolted the damn drive to the back of a flag. That is an unprecedented level of obsession.
>>17309786sexiest machine in 00
>Actually villain isn't even done exploding>HERE COMES DAREDEVIL!Man I really wish I watched 00 live with you fuckers. I bet the threads were nuts.
>>17309786>>17311772I don't like how they went from red to orange glow for the GN tau drives in the second season. I get that moving up the color spectrum shows that they're closer in output to true GN drives, but it doesn't look as impressive.
>>17311772GN Flag vs. Exia is the most metal fight in the whole franchise. It's CRIMINAL that the GN Flag never got a kit.
>>17305510>Jihad-KunHoly shit it's been a while since I heard that
>>17309786FLAG IS SEXAnyone got this pic but with just the Flag in all its glory?
>>17307915Becoming a Char was the worst thing to happen to his character
>>17311813I still don't get why they pushed him as the Char clone. Without the mask, he's more like Jerid.
>>17311817Because nobody liked Jarid
>>17309786I loved the flag but the Brave NTR'd me pretty hard.
>>17312286It's just a blue Flag
>Wanting to be a Fag Fighter>Wanting to be a pilot of something that gets wreckedlol.
>>17312317>blue FlagThere already is a blue flag...
The last two times I watched Gundam 00 I was one of those guys who pretty much only liked Gundams and their Meisters and now I'm watching with an appreciation for Graham and Sergei and I'm having more fun than ever. Sergei is a fucking boss. He really managed to disable Exia's cameras with a damn Tieren.
>>17312317It's a chad flag.
>>17311813Doesn't really refute what I said.Says more about the Char archetype really.
>>17313137>filenameI thought Flags were a hybrid of di-camera and mono-eye?
>>17313180The Gundam Wiki states this:>The Flag possess an AI system that programs the visor to make eye patterns. It is assumed that this feature is used to intimidate enemies
>>17313203>Gundam WikiA.K.A. ": The Movie"
>>17313312It's in the 1/100 Over Flag manual
Strange that Hitshi Fukuchi hasn't tweeted anything new since 2015. Wonder what he's working on nowadays.https://twitter.com/hitofuku
>>17313397>greyOn a scale of 1 to completely, how blind are you anon?
>>17313505How completely blind are YOU, anon? It's the Karaba colors that're blue.
>>17313505Not, him but I can see why that anon might interpret that box art as grey
>>17313569>>17313516>>17313505to be fair , just check out the vallejo paint catalogue , theres a fuckton of greys and blues not quite grey nor blue.>>17312286>>17312376i had to buy a second one because of how fucked up the waist is , but still is too cool not to have one in my shelves
>>17313516The Union version is colored in air superiority blue.
>>17312286Im sure graham just tossed a sketch at Billy's desk for the "next generation suit" and it was a just a crayon drawn Flag with 2 GN drives
Why are flags so fucking coolHell I enjoyed the fuck out of them in Gundam Versus
GN-Xs > Flags
>>17313516clearly not blind as you are because in the show, the HG and the art, they're all blue just a lighter shade.
>>17314091shame that its kits are outdated trash.The 00 line needs a 2.0
>>17314169The season one HGs don't even feel meaningfully superior to the Seed Destiny HGs anymore. I'd also bet if 00 got revives it'd be all Setsunas suits two thirds of which don't need one and all have great RGs available anyway.
>>17314475Remember when the 00 Gundam HG came out and it was the most amazing thing ever? I was playing with it and having it do splits just because I could. The color separation was pretty weak but it's still a fantastic kit in terms of articulation. Pretty much set the standard for everything to follow.
>>17313085>spoilerOh I know the best Char-Clone wasn't even in Gundam
OP here, no need to keep bumping the thread. Just let it die.Thank you for your time and interest.
>>17317591But what if we want to keep posting glorious Flags?
>>17318935Let's have a Blast.
>>17312286Best of both worlds.>>17314091The V fin is the only thing keeping the GN-X IV from perfection.
>>17307913Just stick him in a core fighter and he'd do fine.
>>17311671The best part of that was the square hole round peg "What the fuck did they just say to do?" look on the technician's face when they were foreshadowing it with the rectangular port on the Flag's back and the round GN drive
>>17305510Everything was simple back then...................
>>17317436Damn he and the /m/ desings were the only good thing about this
