Half way in and the big G only appears as skeleton. Still better the best Godzilla related thing to come from Toho since Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (not counting Final Wars).
200 replies and 33 images omitted. Click here to view.
that's because in Heisei Godzilla the human plot is in service of the monster plot rather than the other way around like most showa films. And Showa could still be poorly paced and drag, particularly in Ghidrah the Three headed monster. Heisei gives the monsters significantly more screen time. In fact the final spacegodzilla fight is perhaps way too long.
And what source do you have for this?
His gaping ass.

Vayeate and Mercurios got HGs via P-Bandai and most of the Leo variants are there as well. I know the Air, Space, and Cannon versions of the Leo along with most the alternate weapons loadouts were in the Leo Full Weapon P-Bandai set.

So are the main villains of Daitarn 3 really Banjo's parents? Because if so he really should have tried to beat George Lucas to the "I'm am your Father" twist by spelling it out.

On the wiki it says there's no known official meaning
'Gundam [type], Mass-produced'? That's always been my guess.

Sayla named her kid THAT?
In Beltorchika's Children, the name for Amuro and Beltorchika's unborn baby was decided to be Solar Ray.

You know, the same name as the Zeon superweapon that wiped out 1/3rd of the Feddy fleet just before the battle of A Baoa Qu.

Are Grendizer's harkens based on real world weapons? I couldn't find anything similar to them except for scythes

As far as I'm aware, it's what you get if you took a tsukiyari, flip the crescent moon shaped spearhead upside down, then double that and stick them end to end.

Except yari are, as far as I'm aware, designed as thrusting spears for the most part, not slashing. That's more a naginata's jurisdiction polearmwise from what I'm aware of

Don't take my word for it, I'm not an expert on Japanese weaponry I just read way too much wikipedia.
Is harken even a real word?
Googling it just give me random images unrelated to any blade weapons
It's as real a term as "pile bunker"
The whole concept of a pendulum blade spread the image of the being used as weapons, too. I wouldn't be surprised if that was another possible origin.
i tried looking for a dual version of the moon sickle but all pictures have the spade on the opposite end but it's pretty reasonable to assume a dual sickle version exists somewhere.

THE GUIDE: http://gunpla.buyfags.moe/


For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions, as there is a chance it has already been answered there.

For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!

>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post images whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting images.

RG Eva 03 gets released from purgatory, MG Virtue gets fully revealed, the reveal of that mystery MG listing, HG Huckebein as the next SRW OG kit and hopefully either an HG GuAIZ or Virgo
This except I'd wager the Strike Dagger instead of GuAIZ

This is what the Zeong should look like in the live action Netflix Gundam movie. It's a realistic and believable design.
The live action Netflix Gundam movie shouldn't be an adaptation of 0079 anyway.

/m/ What are the essential games to get for PS3?
So far I got Gundam EX both, A.C.E, Macross 30. I need more names. Actually you can add some obscure PS4 /m/ games too.

I can't bring myself to return to Breaker 2 after the amount of customisation offered on the third title.

People on YouTube are making Metal Gear REX on Breaker 3. No other Gundam game has that sort of freedom.

Also fuck the base jabber segments of Breaker 2.
Transformers Devastation is both on PS3 and PS4, so that's a good one to try.
0081 was Gundam's 30th anniversary game with VA animated cutscenes. Side Stories was their 35th and was a HUGE step back in every department.
Is the Macross F game for PS3 worth it I don't mean Macross 30 I mean the one Macross F that comes with the dvd or something? Is it a tech demo or what?
Not sure how /m/ they are but EDF 2025 has tanks, choppers, mechs and exoskeletons fighting aliens. Ignore this game if you have EDF 4.1 on PC as that one is the definitive version.
White Knight Chronicles II has you summon robot-like giant armours in a fantasy setting, just note that it's an offline MMO (literally, the servers were shut down years ago) and the gameplay reflects that. No need to get the first game since it's included in the sequel.

What was the saddest gundam ending?
164 replies and 18 images omitted. Click here to view.
SEED is relatively popular, Destiny is the really bad one. Still better than IBO tho
SEED and SEED Destiny are the best Gundam shows.
Zeta, After War Gundam X, Turn A.

In that order.

IBO really isn't the best the series has to offer - it's weirdly melodramatic and miserable. It feels like the creators of the show sat down and were like "what's the WORST world we can imagine here, guys"
Everything from Gjallerhorn just being farcically corrupt to apparently almost everybody using child soldiers to the protagonists becoming increasingly unsympathetic; it was so bleak I found it increasingly difficult to care at all about what happened.
Char would have opposed Haman's Neo Zeon though. Conquering the Earth and installing a Zabi puppet dictator is like the opposite of what he wants for Zeon.

Nah, Char's speech at Dakar is too important to his character. in 0079 he's just trying to remove Zabi from the premises. Zeta is where he tries to get humanity follow his father's vision the nice way and gets disillusioned by the end of it. CCA is when he goes full accelerationist to get humanity off of Earth.
SNEED is just inferior Mobile Suit Gundam (original series) with a terrible early 00's anime artstyle. Not worth the time. You pretty much have to watch the original series or at least the movie compilations of it to "get into" Gundam properly because everything else in the entire franchise references it in one way or another. After that there's a few ways you can go

>"Main" plot for UC gundam (the primary universe/continuity for Gundam)
Original series
Char's Counterattack
Then Late UC: F91 and Victory, which are in the same universe but don't really have the continuous plot of the others

OVA miniseries worth watching : 08thMS, 0080 (both take place concurrently with the original series), 0083 (prequel to Zeta)

Standalone alternate universe shows worth watching: Gundam 00, G Gundam, Turn A, Gundam X is ok I guess, Wing is kinda shit but it has its charms.

Get a crocodagger from arcantus. That thing moves way faster than anything, but it lacks slots because no head.
WIZ ultimately has all the newbies.
DOS and BRD are filled with people who has played this game before.
Still, i'm in WIZ, so i'm also teaching them.
