transforming /m/echa thread
>>18982737The first bayformer.
>>18983188no because bayformers look good, unlike flying dorito here
>>18983188In what way besides “Micheal Bay = Bad”?
>>18983330>Micheal Bay = Godftfy
>>18983321>>18983330It disassembles into the small parts and magically reassembles in different form like lego.That's now what transforming is supposed to be.
>>18986468There's a word for that. It's called partformer.
>>18982737I like the the Airmaster.I've wondered if Witz being able to pull off such amazing stunts and not passing out without a pilot suit was supposed to be intentional to show his training and skill, or if they just forgot about gravity. I don't think Heero or Kamille ever put off epic high G maneuvers without a suit on (although Heero probably trained to do it anyway), but outside of the final fight in space I don't remember Witz wearing anything else other than his cool pilot jacket.
>>18986475Either way it's not truly transforming mech.
>>18983188Are you guys stupid? The Zeta isn't a partsformer, there are multiple kits and action figures of it that transform
>>18982737Is this the exploding RG?
>>18984086All I see is Advance of Z styled Hi-gogg
>>18987098mine hasn't exploded but the neck, waist and shoulders like to collapse when I handle it
>>18987322now THAT'S an exploding model
>>18988083again, had that one and didn't break, it was as solid as your average HG from that era. Only issue was the thumb having poor range and popping off if you forced itMaybe don't hamhand your model kits?
What are the best gundam series besides Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam Wing, and 08th MS team?
>>18988137>Gundam Wing>08th MS team>best gundam series
>>18988151Why are you laughing?
>>18988154because you said>Gundam Wing>08th MS team>best gundam series
>>18988160Well give me some good ones anon
>>18988163the first four entries are good and that's it
>>18988190What the fuck are the first 4? They have a bunch of Zs in themZeta gundamgundam ZZgudnam 0934238
>>18988195the originalzeta gundamzz gundamChar's Counterattack
>>18988198Thank you sir. I'll watch them all because you told me to and I trust you.I wish you good luck for the next week.
>>18988202thank you bro have some good times watching Gundams
>>18986616>Tomino tries Macross.jpg
>>18987920Actually my favorite of scirocco's mobile suits. As much as I like the O this looks more threatening
>>18987039Weird ass nonsensical spaghetti that falls apart anyway isn't any better.
>>18988322That's only an issue with the RG because it tries to fit the transformation in 144.MGs of the Zeta and it's derivatives like the Z plus are fine.And they're far far better transformations than shellformers, or garbage like the wing
>>18988190>the first four entries are good and that's ityou have garbage taste like this and you're laughing at wingfags?
>>18989857those excessive panel lines lend the aesthetics of a prune
>>18991046Because it's basically lego, it doesn't transform, it shape shifts.
>>18982737These all look fucking stupid with the exception of the macross machines. Maybe some Z/ZZ suits too, but I only ever watched them while drunk/high as a college kid.
>>18991030>22 Zeta GundamsWhy do this when you can buy 11 ZZ for half the price? Same thing really.
>>18991942I don't remember it transforming into anything.
>>18991819>>18991822Peak mecha design.
>>18988322MG zeta 2.0 does it fine while not being a grenade, same with the MG delta+, old Z+ and some old HG too.One bad kit isn't gonna change that.
One thing I find weird is that the HGUC ZZ Gundam is a partsformer even though all parts of its transformation process have already been reproduced in older HGUC kits.
>>19002144I dont have that kit, but sometimes partsforming helps give the mobile suit mode better proportions, more accurate to the lineart. When you are tied to a true transformation, Bandai has had to compromise the proportions to the mobile suit mode.
>>19003976The Gabthley has one of the most badass designs in mecha history, but the MA mode looks kinda lame.
>>19003401Is this the Gundam blood related?
>>19003401Ah yes, the true ZZ Gundam
>>18992427unconventional designs like this are really interesting
>>18991819>>18991822I'm drawing a blank, what series is this from?
>>19014967viilkis, from cross enge i think
>>19014712Is this Obvious Plant?
>>18992431>can ride on its ass>TransformationEhhh
>>18991940Transforming mobile suits tend to look really dumb cause they don't look like something that could actually fucking fly.
>>19029286The resemblance of this thing as a fighter to the Su-57 is uncanny.
He was my favorite
It's the 35th anniversary of Zeta Gundam, Bandai, I want the Master Grade Asshimar!
>>19037831I hate how we never got a variation where it just transforms without breaking in 2.
