We haven't had a notable capital ship in Gundam since the Ptolemaios. How come?
>>21296546The Megafauna and her crew were alright.
>>21296574>let's steal the Ptolemaios blueprints Chink style, paint it red and not do anything cool.
Megafauna was rad as hell
>>21296638It needs a big dick cannon.
>>21296546Take that back.
>>21296560>>21296670>>21296638I still want that cosmo fleet megafauna miniature
>>21297048it sold the least so it's the cheapest one available atm. Ra Cailum disappeared quick and goes for $300+ nowadays
>>21297168How much is Archangel going for? Bet it's the second most expensive one.
>>21296560>>21296638>>21296642>>21296670>>21297048Megafauna is a Dunbine ship
>>21297254No shit anon, it's all connected. It's also why the perfect pack startup generates king gainer's rings
>>21296546We had the jazz club
>>21300422>All those random panel linesIs this meant to look like a flying lego fortress? lmao
>>21300435Personally, I like it. Makes it look like a flying Inca temple.
>>21300435Ya idk. It’s not even a consistent detail
>>21296546because mobsobs one shot half of them
>>21300110If you know, you know.>t. knower
>>21296546Mate, the Megafauna. Also, was really sad when the Diva blew up.
It's kind of wild that the Megfauna and Spartan are the last actual main ships. IBO had a fucking junker that might as well have not existed, and G-Witch doesn't even have a ship at all.
>>21296546I know the novel was released the same year as 00 but the OVAs weren't, and I liked Captain Otto.
>>21300873oh my bad, I read that as notable captain of a ship, and Otto Mitas simply captained the Nahel Argama since Bright was transferred to the Ra Cailum
>>21300873And the Nahal Argama's retrofit post ZZ made it even more beautiful.>>21300868> G-Witch doesn't even have a ship at allYet. I get a feeling we'll run into one eventually since the Corporate War is inevitable at this point.
>>21300877Technically that was Beecha's ship. Also Otto was a Colonel, not a Captain.
>>21300883Every time someone says something is inevitable in G-Witch, they end up completely wrong.In the end G-Witch will end up a whole bunch of nothing. Then everyone will have Gundams at the end. They'll fight. Then it ends disappointing like all AUs except for X and G.
>>21300890What does any of that have to do with having at least a vessel to carry Aerial around? We already see ships for mobile suits for G-Witch.
>>21300890What has anyone even said is inevitable in or about G-Witch that's ended up bieng definitively wrong? It's only 7 episodes into a 25 or possibly 50 episodes shown (depending on if it has a second season or not) and about the only thing I think I've seen anyone say with some certainty is Suletta is/isn't Ericht and Prospera is/isn't Elnora; neither of which has actually been proven yet.
I chalk it up to ships never get as many models as the mechs themselves.
>>21300873It’s not really new though, it’s like Char’s Falmer at the end of origin
>>21301507We need matchbox to make an Argama
>>21301648I rather Tomy.
>>21300816I miss Christina
>>21301507I'd chalk it up to it not actually being true. At worst the only finished mainline Gundam show to not have a notable capital ship since 00 is Iron Blooded Orphans, since AGE had the Diva as a notable ship throughout the show and G-Reco had the Megafauna. And I don't even think that's true, because while the Isaribi wasn't present in every episode, it was a major part of large chunks of the show. Witch hasn't had one yet, but Witch is also not finished and the show is heavily implying that it'll shift focus from the school setting at some point to more open warfare, so we can't say whether it will or won't have one at all until the show is finished.
>>21307302What does that have to do with what I said?
I have no clue what goes on in AGE but I really like the Diva. It looks like they turned Star Sabre into a capital ship
>>21307351Your statement that "you chalk it up to model considerations" inherently supposes that "it", which without further context would be OP's supposition, is true.
>>21307308White Base is damn ugly. It looks like a sphynx. The Archangel and it's stupid legs are also ugly.
>>21307416I never said it's the only factor, I just see it as the reason to not have a ship to show all the time, at least from a marketing standpoint.>>21307761It's basically the only way to make a carrier work in space without just slapping a flight deck on the top.
>>21307903>without just slapping a flight deck on the topThere is no reason to not do this. Space doesn't care about square-cube law.
>>21307356The Diva also had a very touching scene for its last moments.
>>21307909I mean, they went and did that in Zeta, but I guess aesthetically the show's designer for White Base said "but that's boring and predictable"
>>21307356Looks like the Gray Phantom, but with more red.
>>21308005It can transform into pointy mode
>>21307986I bet that moron loves metamodern art. Different doesn't mean good.
>>21307986Or, you know, it was 1979 and they had toy sponsors that wanted things that could sell in a market largely dominated by traditional robot shows. Meanwhile Zeta came out in an era where the more military minded designs had become common place rather than a novelty.
>>21308808Don't tell me you can't make a toy with a flight deck, I remember the fucking huge GI Joe aircraft carrier, my brother had it.
>>21309075Forgot pic. USS Flagg, the toy you always wanted but never got, except my brother did.
>>21309075>>21309077The reason no one had one wasn't just because it was the richfag toy ($145 bucks in 80s money), but because it was only on the market in 1985-86 before disappearing, before we had an internet to find old shit.
>>21307356It's a Transformer! I kinda wished they used the Cruise Mode more.
>>21307903>without just slapping a flight deck on the top.>on topPut them everywhere or bust
Predict G-Witch's capital ship.
>>21322588The 1880’s equivalent of this OR it’ll look like Eva unit 01’s head but with more rings
