Swole Leo is getting an official releasehttps://www.hlj.com/gundam-universe-oz-06ms-leo-bans63786
>>20747275Back seems to have a hardpoint. I want to say we'll get space and flight packs but the Strike never got any packs.
Haha, time to buy 3 of them.
Call me when they release a HG Taurus or Virgo
>>20748221P-bandai within the next 10 years :)
Is it true that a Leo is statistically better than a Zaku?
>>20748396Only in certain ways. The Leo can carry more powerful weapons than what a regular Zaku I or II usually has access to, but the Leo's mobility and armor are crap unless it's got an addon backpack and/or if a named character is piloting it.
>>20748396iirc bullshit spec maybe probably yes, but "stand against a named pilot's unit" then not really
>>20748409Well that’s why I said statistically.So, in a fight between generic Zeon and OZ pilots in just Zakus and Leos, would the Leos stand a better chance?
>>20748420In a 1v1 fight it's a tossup between who gets hit first. A Leo can carry a beam rifle or dobergun that will destroy a Zaku in one hit but a Zaku machine gun can easily take out a Leo anyway.
>>20748408Leo's are basically superior to Zaku's in every way, but come off worse because the Gundam's in Wing are way more powerful than the RX-78 was so they're nothing more than fodder. It's like how Windam's in CE are actually statistically very good but look like shit because all they do in story is job the main characters and their ridiculously powerful Gundam's.The plot armor is a unique thing though, and mostly because pilots in AC hop suits frequently, while in UC that isn't really a thing for protagonists so much. I think in Wing Wufei was the only main character that piloted his Gundam and only his Gundam.
>>20748420Absolutely. Leo's have more powerful weapons and can equip stuff like flight packs and external weapons, which Zaku's cannot do.
>>20748741>I think in Wing Wufei was the only main character that piloted his Gundam and only his Gundam.Wifei pilots Wing Zero briefly in one episode to fight off pursuing White Fang forces.>>20748744Powerful weapons are one thing, but Zakus also have flight platforms and external weapons like the Skiure
>>20748420Leo are superior in almost every way, are more versitile, and can carry and mount better weaponry without additional large equipment needed like mentioned in >>20748833. Even on the armor front the Leo has better armor (On paper at least) using a titanium alloy compared to the steel/ceramic composite alloy of the zaku II. They just tend to die in droves because of plot armor (Like that time one got hit in the head camera and the entire machine blew up yet when a main character pilots it suddenly it can soak up bullets without exploding).
>>20749673>Leo are superior in almost every way, are more versitile, and can carry and mount better weaponry They can't turn their heads though.
>>20753223They can. Animation shows it. Model kits and toys have head turning.
>>20748833Leos have flight packs
>>20753236Lies. Those are retcons. Show me a Leo turning its head in the show. Leos are supposed to be derpy little machines. Like special Ed commandoes
>>20753897What they are meant to be is the most prolific military unit for giant robot combat.From their drab olive green uniform to their versatility and range of option parts, that's why there are so many of them in the AC era. They've basically existed for decades with minor updates to their design.
>>20747278Pretty much. Gundam Universe figures always tweak the design, but they're fairly spartan on accessories. Like FFS they made a Nu that just comes with a saber and a funnel.
>>20747275Is the Leo supposed to be a GM expy or a Zaku expy? Because I can see both sides' influence on its design.
>>20754408sheesh nu looking so clean
Leo Pasta deployed. Leos are the best grunt.
>>20754518Zaku. It's OZ-06MS, olive colored, mounts a shield by attaching it to the shoulder, and is the enemy main suit.
>>20754899>dusty as fucknot like this zakubros...
>>20754518>>20754899Its more unique than other Gundam AU 'enemy grunts', that's one of its strong points.Unlike say the fucking CE where they are JUST ugly zakus, becoming literally ZAKUs by the time Destiny rolls around.
>>20759038Was that already a thing, or did you make it?
>>20759048Just an image from my Gundam Wing folder, saved from across the years.
>>20759052I see.So can you make it orange?
>>20759053Let me be more clear; was stating these are just images I've saved across the years, not ones I've made myself.
>>20759068I understand.But are you capable of making that first one orange?I don't trust my editing skills, so I was hoping either you or somebody else could pull it off.
>>20759074Nah sorry, my editing skills are shitty and all I have to work with is Paint.
>>20753236Wish there was a spinoff Wing videogame that let you use all the grunt suits.Like the premise would be you are running a small MS mercenary team in the setting taking jobs from various employers involving the many small conflicts of the world, building up your pool of machine as time goes on which you then customise the appearance and performance/loadout of.Would have stuff like if you got good rep with groups such as the Maganac Corps they would offer you access to their signature mobile suits.
>>20760039I always thought that a Zeonic Front type game for Wing would be killer. The Gundams could randomly appear on maps and you'd be forced to retreat early on because of how overpowered they are. Since they don't appear on radar, all you'd see is explosions and hear screaming over the radio. Except when Deathscythe appeared and all your sensors would be jammed. leaving you with a fuzzy screen and no idea where to go or what was happening. If you could coordinate your team enough to damage a Gundam you could be rewarded with special weapons like Heavyarms' gattling or a whole arm from Shenlong you could slap on your unit etc.
>>20760234Looks like a construction worker
Is this the Wing thread? Because I love Wing and I love Leos.
>>20748084Why is there a version of them with helicopter backpacks instead of winged-jetpacks?
>>20761496>Was just thinking "man, the Leo has some feminine hips" prior to scrolling down and seeing this
>>20761496I remember someone did a version of this in space Leo colors...
>>20760818There isn't. Those are a build divers backpack stuck into the 3mm hole in the hgac leos back.
>>20747275Hey ive got a quick question, I bought the high grade version of the leo a little while back and im not certain what the difference between that one and the one you posted is, wouldja mind sharing?
>>20769256One is a model kit(the one you bought) and one is an action figure(the one the thread is about).
>>20769256This is a toy not a kit
>>20769263>>20769267 ah I am a fool
>>20769275Gundam Universe pointedly tweaks all the designs a little to what they consider more striking. So they tend to come out with sharper angles and beefier proportions. They're fairly solid for a $25-$30 action figure, just they tend to skimp on accessories. But with the Leo you apparently get a gun and a saber, which is about what you get in the HGAC.
>>20769286They are also non-scale, so all the suits are the same basic height (6 inches). Also there's only so deep they go in effects, so while things like the gold effect on their Wing are okay, their Unicorn is kinda awful paintwise.
>>20769297Their 78-2 a cool dude, though. Dig the changes to the saber handles.
>>20747275Gundam Universe has been the best thing for the marketability of Gunpla in the West in a long time. Probably since the Battle Scarred era. The Leo is peak masculine physique And yet, why they even bothered with Gundam Infinity is beyond me
>>20769472Gundam Infinity is a different size and is meant for people who like Build a Figure. Both lines suffer heavily from a lack of accessories and small waves. Infinity also suffers from bad articulation due to the build gimmick but they aren't in a weird scale.
>>20769297That doesn't look too bad.
>>20748084Imagine Drone Leos Good lord
>>20748396Leo is basically a Hi-zack
>>20747275Is this supposed to be the thicc leo from the opening narration of the early episodes? I remember those being purple.
>>20778805I guess since it was an early shot (studio animators just started drawing Leos and haven't developed a sense for things yet) plus the fact that they wanted the long beam launcher all in the same frame, the Leo ends up looking a bit oddly thick. Also for some reason it's missing the space-use backpack.
Maybe the Leos that can turn their heads are early models that function like the Tallgeese
>>20779195Not even the Tallgeese is safe from the neck bullshit
>>20779126That's a big fucking gun,Its weird though, it charges up and fires a small shot of energy that then explodes?
>>20748396Everything in Wing is super powered comparatively. Their materials science is light years ahead.A Zaku is 56-75 tonsA Leo is 7 tonsRoughly the same height
>>20780749While most of it is the typical "Gundam stats are illogical horseshit made up by non-engineers" part of it could also be that Leos are made of titanium alloy which would be lighter weight that the Zaku's steel/ceramic composite armor. The leo is also not as bulky as the zaku.
>>20748084The Enclave really stepped up their game. The Brotherhood doesn't stand a chance against these Vertibird power armor hybrids
>>20759074Why weren't you? Are you posting from a rock or a pc that has the most basic of image software?
>>20748833>Wifei pilots Wing Zero briefly in one episode to fight off pursuing White Fang forces.Correct. Actually, every single one of the five main protagonists gets his chance in the Wing Zero and the Zero system. Other than them, Zechs and Lieutenant Trant pilot it, as well.
>>20779840>Its weird though, it charges up and fires a small shot of energy that then explodes?The Tallgeese III's mega launcher pretty much does the same thing.
>>20794159The Leo-Gyan seems like something Treize would have used.
>>20797406Maybe but the Gauf Leo looks the best.
>>20794159What’s the last one?
>>20783753the difference between the density of titanium and steel isn't even close to that much. an M1 Abrams for example is half the height of a RX-78 in length and yet weighs 90% of the same weight. Gundams are memetically light already. the wing MS weights are unironically lighter than if you made them out of wood and cardboard.
>>20800496If there's tallgeese where is manletgeese?
>>20802500Seems similar to Ram Z'Gok.https://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/msv-r/msm-07n.htm>>20806273See >>20806268. It's called the Leo IV Gryph
>>20797401What would be the UC analog to Tallgeese?
>>20806520ZudahFast as fuck to a dangerous degree, semi prototype, that gets mellowed to hell to create a mass production model
>>20747275I don’t really see much of a difference? What is this and why does it exist? Doesn’t seem different enough to justify being a Leo variant.
>>20806520In terms of its role as first MS it's technically the MS-01 in the main UC timeline, the first true MS to have a humanoid form and a minovsky fusion reactor. In the Origin version it would either be the mobile worker MW-01 or the Waffe as the first technical MS.
>>20806566Zudah is so good.
>>20813845I mean, it's a deathtrap, but yeah, if you know what you're doing it can be pretty cool.
>>20806810"Swole Leo" is not a variant, OP is just making a joke. The Leo is getting a Gundam Universe action figure, and that line makes everything look thick and buff. Looks fine on some stuff (mostly 90s designs) but looks terrible on others (like 00 and ibo).
>>20813845Too bad you have like a 1/3 chance of your MS blowing up randomly during every mission if you pilot it.
>>20806849Fuck Origin, all its new 'prototype' first-gen mobile suits are fucking terrible.
>>20817745Not bad looking Leo Gundam.And hey a Leo made out of Gundanium would be cool.Always thought the space-type backpacks for Leo's were neat with their movable thrusters, be much more practical.
Why is the leo machinegun so cool looking?
>>20778352They exist.AI-controlled Mobile Dolls.
>>20806566>>20813845Now I want a Leo with Zudah aesthetics.>>20815641And an Ez8 Leo.
>>20790079what a slut
>>20822691It got him out of his funk though.
>>20747275Only wing universe figure I'll skip and that's because I bought the hg leo's.All of them.Because fuck you they're cheaper than one of these least after import cost, you literally can't beat 800 yen and a bit of handiwork
>>20747275Leos are fucking dumb.
>>20747275Finally, most perfect non-Zeon grunt suit.
>>20747275Why are all of the non-Gundam designs in Wing so good? They should be reused for a different setting,it's a waste to have them stuck in Wing.
>>20843671Katoki is really good when he gets creative
>>20843639I honestly think these are some of the worst designs in all of gundam
>>20843690Seriously, what happened to him? All his 90's designs were pretty good, but then somewhere around the mid to late 2000's his designs became fucking awful. Ironic that that's when he started to design everything. I guess most people just like their mechs overdesigned or something.
>>20779195Wide angle camera lens so you don't need to turn your head to see/Multiple cameras
>>20748221Shush that, where's Tragos?
>>20806566Zudah isn't mass produced
>gundam universethese the westernized price point ones you find at Target now for ~$25 USD? with the lousy articulation of a paver and flaccid rubber
Filthy Leos. *shakes fist*
>>20864962I would post some if I had them, or could draw them.
>>20819824The Leo machine gun is stupid and I hate it
>>20887754Fucking hell I didn't think an opinion this shitty could possibly exist.
>>20887827The front grip being on the magazine is dumb, and the shape of the magazine itself is dumb. It looks like a spray can.
>>20854922And this is a...
Leos are actually really good they just go up against super robots daily. It's kind of sad that grunt MS constantly get ass blasted when they look so cool.
>>20888124On at least two separate occasions, a small number of Aries were enough to subjugate much larger Leo forces. There's that time that OZ had a small force commanded by ace pilots Alex and Muller, they were able to lay waste to Alliance bases using a single Cancer and Aries. A few Aries borrowed from OZ were almost enough to topple the Leo forces of the Chinese region where Colonel Bunte was going to install himself as a local warlord. 5 Aries were enough to overpower the Leo garrison at the French city where Noventa's daughter was staying, the Leos retreated into an underground water channel and were still losing to the Aries despite fighting in a smaller cramped space where the Aries couldn't even make the most of their flight and mobility capabilities.
Leo's have thrusters in their feet and crotch and ass but addons to basically do anything in the air/in space right?Also was this just an insane fever dream or those two things surrounding the head, missiles?
>>20894857No one knows what those grey things are. Its never been explained ever.
>>20894857>Also was this just an insane fever dream or those two things surrounding the head, missiles?The Sandrock has them too and shoots them as missiles several times.The weird part is that no one else is ever shown using them.
>>20760248I’ve got a construction Leo for you…
>>20797406Leo-Gyan, you say?
>>20898435What am I looking at?
>>20913581I have no idea what those stats mean.
>>20914543It's on the scale of 1-Random Wikafandom Site.
>>20839108Now this one is cursed.
holy shit this thread is still alive.stopped posting on /m/ for awhile, came back and its still here.
Leo means Lion
>>20747275>>20919507Where's the lion part on it?
>>20922445It's the mane OZ unit
>>20922445they're courageous fuckers for fighting against enemies when they'll blow up for just being next to a beam
>>20919507SI MEANS YES
>>20936163See, it's how you use it!
MG Serpent Custom EW when, bruders
Apparently RX-0 Unicorn Gundam is a penny on gamestop
>>20936163Does anyone else prefer the dober gun as solid round weapon? I don't know why but it just seems more powerful.
>>20946258>figureew no thanks, I'm not some manchild that wants to smash his toys into eachotherI snap my toys from parts and put them on a shelf in a standing pose like a real man
>>20747275I don't like Wing but Wing had some of the best grunts, the Leo is based as fuck
>>20949262All dem Leos.
