Siege out now edition

A thread to talk about all things Transformers.

Questions about the toys are welcome but may be better answered on

I love the RTS Seaspray. Sure, he's not really an update of the G1 Seaspray, but it's just such a cool alt mode, robot mode, and transformation. Plus, the whole scuba look + harpoon guns are just rad.

Another cool mold. Love how compact his warship mode is.

The Scout/Cyberverse/Legends class used to be good.
Given that none of them are super popular I get why they didn't use them but still, why the fuck Rumble and not Soundwave or Shockwave if they were just going for iconic character skins?
I liked Hubcap (the orangey-red one which turned into the retro car).
This really just came out of nowhere. I really feel like a WoT/Transformers crossover would make more sense. Could have Warpath and Brawl as reskins of the M551 and Leo 1. And according to someone on the WG live stream, we may be getting a Starscream carrier as well.

What are ya watching, /m/?

Although I honestly have no idea you came to the conclusion that the two of them are from the same family when barely 2 minutes into the first episode Miku specifies "My aunt", indicating the two aren't related in any way.
>What is adoption
Adoption would mean that Miku's aunt would be Hibiki's aunt though. That and they usually change the family name of someone after someone gets adopted.

Primarily been watching Star Wars: Clone Wars with a friend. It's got its moments(Hondo is one of my favorite SW characters now, pretty much any episode with him in it is on my recommended list), but god damn can this show just look ugly sometimes, also really not a fan of Ahsoka.
We were also watching Legend of Galactic Heroes in our main group but one of the people bitched out and we stopped watching for a few weeks while trying to get them back. Trying to get us to go back into it but there's not much drive to because people forgot shit.
Currently re-watching Gundam 0079 and it is A LOT better seeing this series now than from what I remember first watching it back when I was like 13 and 14.
After that I'm probably gonna get back to finishing Toei Devilman and jump back to Kamen Rider Zero-One.

Comic Newtype published the 2nd part of the 6th chapter with Kallen from the spin-off manga «Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Gaiden: Lancelot & Guren»

Rollon decided to act according to his own method - he had already wounded Kagalli and wants to kill Benio

Because it's official romanization
Well, there's not much as in actual Geass news at the moment.

When they announce something else, that should get some movement back up
yeah, and given how the manga spin-offs, as well as the collaboration of other events seem to focus on how events had happened in the tv canon
Collabs are normally greatest hits stuff in all the cases I've seen, so business as usual
I'm hoping that with Lancelot & Guren wrapping up, maybe it can get added to SRW X-Omega now

Main line would be better but I'm not expecting it if even Oz can't.

Why is 00 so great designwise?

Continuing with the hololive requests: Requesting okayu from hololive, either pointing at the sky like tendou souji from kamen rider kabuto does when he quotes his grandmother, while holding a plate with onigiris on the hand she isn't pointing at the sky with, like in this video:
Or at a train station shop reading books/magazines while giving off this quote from one of her zatsudans souji-tendou style:
>My grandmother told me: "One who reads the books in front of the station, will be able to grasp all the truths of this world."
got any references for those?
Mogu Mogu!

How exactly did the buff clan know what samurai's are?

Did two human races just manage to both have the concept of samurai's
Buffs are supposed to be long-lost descendants of human colonizers or something.
was that mentioned anywhere?

That genuinely makes their whole war effort more fucked up

YO! OP! please make a new thread man! If that's alright with ya....
Crappy luck with the free pulls, can't believe they gave me a dupe for the guaranteed 3 star. This is discouraging.
Got the Quebeley on my second 10 pull, can do a proper HaMAN impression with the full costume (I shall be the manliest Neo-Zeon leader!), and got a Marasai and Barzam in the process too. Not too shabby.

Why is the bad guy? He just wants to bring peace to the world. Also its deeply hypocritical for the director of Code Geass to make a series that says "The ends don't justify the means and personal feelings are more important than the world." but then to turn around and say "But it's okay if Lelouch does it."

I liked it better as Trigun and Code Geass respectively. By itself, it was mediocre.

What do we know about the redesigned BD2/BD3 for the manga? I have heard that they are now entirely new MS instead of being heavily-customized Gundam Ground Type. Also, EXAM and HADES have some relationship behind the scene.
17 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Plus, again, HADES *worked*
Again, the shackled HADES was literally none of those.
Hades is fucking stupid and should never have existed, its even dumber the EXAM.
what’s the difference between them? Does HADES lack the spirit of a Newtype to pilot it?
Bandai seems to alternately bend over backwards to come up with a McGuffin that lets certain pilots can perform "legendary" feats, but without being a Newtype. It's become such a boring crutch.

Season 2 when
28 yr old here. Fuck it's kinda refreshing to see people little above my age talking about this stuff. All the 30 somethings in the south just talk about comics and early anime.
Kinda depends on where you are too. I moved from bumfuck NOLA ruins to Dallas and found a lot more people who are at least aware of toku and mecha

Where do you all decide to draw the line when it comes to designs being ridiculous? I usually think mechas have more a lot more freedom with their designs before criticism comes rolling in. /xDsZKb
11 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
My point with my big wall of text is that it's okay if done in moderation but is also much easier to fuck up than fanciful robots.
It comes down to personal taste a lot of the times. But I think most people know something that's overdesigned when they see it like >>18798018
Code Geass has a weird situation where the show starts out with pretty grounded designs. Even the Lancelot can be sort of brushed off as the sort of "Gundam" Of the series. Then the Guren Mk2 shows up and it's ugly as sin, the only cool thing about it is the arm. Then as the series progresses Knightmare frame technology does as well, and things start getting more and more complex design wise, and many designs are just sort of Gaudy. Like the Lancelot Albion and Guren SEITEN get those stupid energy wings. And then Akito's designs are even more out there especially with the centaur one. I usually tend to prefer mech designs along the lines of the Sutherlands in Geass, the TA from Gasaraki, Wanzers, Armored Cores, some Macross VF's, and Argevollen has some cool designs And i'm sure there are more I can't think of right now. Personally the ones I dislike are the Gurren Lagann, Gundam Akatsuki and several other SEED Destiny suits. Again most of it is personal taste.
Way too over design.
The points kinda wooshed right over your head but then you're just trying to shitpost. Context is everything for a design; if it's congruous to the setting/faction, it works even if in a vacuum it would be absurd. Nagano's work is probably the best example I can think of for this kind of thing.
>when it comes to designs being ridiculous
Sentai final gattais, particularly the shit they did during Zyuohger and ToQger.
I usually don't mind ridiculous backpacks and wings, clusterfucks and "unclean" designs in general, but Sentai's tick me off something fierce.
But it has mostly to do with the toys than anything. I suppose that it has to do with how much I loved megazord toys when I was little so I held an adoration for them, and you tell me that the thing on the right is the best you can do? Fuck you.

How different do you think the Mecha genre would have turned out if the original Mobile Suit Gundam had instead been Mobile Suit Gyanko and the RX-78-2 was replaced with the HG-01 Hyper Gyanko?

there's been some Doraemon threads that lasted 3~4 months too around when the dub was on Disney XD iirc
Damn and I thought the ord thread was crazy, but those sound like a trip to read through.
nobody answered my question
I literally did.
waifufags and pedos are mentally ill

Anyone know how to get the online working? Seems like it'd be really fun with other players.
this brings so many good memories of amecha forums
