Thoughts on IBO mobile suits?
Many people seem to hate the recurring waist sections of the designs, i love them personally.
>>20849274Shinden is my baby
>>20848939Some good, some bad
>>20848939I hate almost everything about this show outside of the mecha designs.okada should be hung from a lamppost for wasting all those beautiful designs.
Absolutely beautiful. Ordered the HG kit immediately after seeing it. Top tier mobile suit and top tier Gunpla.
>>20848939I love the variety of physical melee weapons.
>>20848939Most are bleh.Bael looks like a cool suit tho.
>mobile suits desing is standardized thanks to the introduction of mobile suits frames.>allows suits to be easliy repaired and customized >MS frames can be retroffited with drastically different equipment and armor, completely changing how suit behaves (Kimaris/Vidar)>Cross compatibility even between different frames (Barbatos with Graze shoulder armor)>even the frames themself can be modified to pilot's preferences (Giving Barbatos longers forearms to make fit Mika's aggresive combat style better)Wow they really tried to encourage kitbashing didn't they?
>>20848939All are good except Ebikawa's Lego garbage. So about the usual standard quality for AU designs.
>>20849503Definitely one of the show's strengths. The katana being seen to be unimpressive and only used in, what, one episode? was also a nice swerve.
>>20849503Long mace chads where are you?
WHERE'S THE KIT!
>>20849466The Vidar was so sexy and so underusedMost of the fights in IBO were also pretty badly animated, what a shame
>>20848939I hated almost all of them. Shit proportions, unstable waist section.The Vidar was somewhat passable but that waist section was still awful.
>>20848939I don't like the high heels
>>20849609Neither do I but hight heels is something that a lot of mecha have these days (Unicorn in destroyer mode for example). I guess it's just a fad that will disappear offer time.
Very hit or miss. Kimaris for instance starts off ugly as sin and becomes absolutely gorgeous as both Vidar and Kimaris Vidar.
I think most of them were pretty cool but I didn't like gusion rebake full city's scissors in particular.
>>20848939I hate the super-thin waists with exposed inner frame, with the exception of Bael, Kimaris Vidar and Asmodeus. They managet to make it work. Barbie Lupus Rex is also pretty good because the waist is much smaller and I generally have a thing for warped humanoid proportions in mecha.
>>20849770So the way the waist of the Gundam Frames are designed, it's rather hit or miss where it works?
>>20849516They needed a prototype suit with the super-advanced tech that was abandoned due to high cost.>>20849770>>20849816We needed an ASW-G-00 Gundam Solomon with a fully-armored torso
I honestly can’t remember what most of them look like outside of Barbatos and Vidar
>>20849816that's my take on it at least. I generally have a somewhat unusual mecha taste so don't take it as the general opinion.>>20849861>We needed an ASW-G-00 Gundam Solomon with a fully-armored torsothat would be lit. i'd buy it in a heartbeat and give it the aesthetic of Solomon from Daemon X Machina.
>>20848939haven't seen most of them and I couldn't give less of a shit about the show but I love Gyobu unconditionally
>>20849880>>20849861DESU, I could see an ASW-G-00 having a semi-armored waistLike put -just- enough armor on the waist that it retains the IBO aesthetic but is still better protected compared to the rest of the PD suitsI think an IBO fan suit did something like what I'm thinking of
>>20849987Early concept for Barbatos had actually quite a decent waist I was still thin but it had no gaps at all.
I really liked how the suits could last for centuries and still be salvagable and effect 200 years later and even the newer ones were still mostly the same thing just slightly more effective and streamlined, than everything but the bleeding edge stuff being obsolete after a few months.
>>20849987Yeah this onr
>>20849991That's true but here's how I was looking at it...Like the Gundam Frame prototype had a torso like a cross between the regular Kimaris and the Halphas, enough armor to where the waist still feels 'exposed' but that's mainly only part of the hydraulics are showing, while the vital points on both ends of the Connection are better protected
>>20849991I like how the Rival unit is just a spikier Throne/Arche
>>20850008Thats litterally edgier version on Marchosias
>>20851259>>20851265Oh right, the MS from the toku designer
