We haven't had a notable capital ship in Gundam since the Ptolemaios. How come?

The Megafauna and her crew were alright.

Isaribi?

I still want that cosmo fleet megafauna miniature

>>21297048
it sold the least so it's the cheapest one available atm. Ra Cailum disappeared quick and goes for $300+ nowadays

How much is Archangel going for? Bet it's the second most expensive one.

Megafauna is a Dunbine ship

No shit anon, it's all connected.
It's also why the perfect pack startup generates king gainer's rings

Mate, 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.

I know the novel was released the same year as 00 but the OVAs weren't, and I liked Captain Otto.
>>
>>21300873
oh 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
>>
>>21300873
And the Nahal Argama's retrofit post ZZ made it even more beautiful.

>>21300868
> G-Witch doesn't even have a ship at all
Yet. I get a feeling we'll run into one eventually since the Corporate War is inevitable at this point.
>>
>>21300877
Technically that was Beecha's ship. Also Otto was a Colonel, not a Captain.
>>
>>21300883
Every 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.
>>
>>21300890
What 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.
>>
>>21300890

What 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.
>>
>>21300873
It’s not really new though, it’s like Char’s Falmer at the end of origin
>>
>>21301507
We need matchbox to make an Argama

I'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.
>>
>>
>>21307302
What 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
>>
>>21307351

Your statement that "you chalk it up to model considerations" inherently supposes that "it", which without further context would be OP's supposition, is true.
>>
>>21307308
White Base is damn ugly. It looks like a sphynx. The Archangel and it's stupid legs are also ugly.
>>
>>21307416
I 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.

>>21307761
It'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 top
There is no reason to not do this. Space doesn't care about square-cube law.
>>
>>21307356
The Diva also had a very touching scene for its last moments.

I 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"
>>
>>21307356
Looks like the Gray Phantom, but with more red.

It can transform into pointy mode

I bet that moron loves metamodern art. Different doesn't mean good.
>>
>>21307986
Or, 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.
>>
>>21308808
Don'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.

Forgot pic. USS Flagg, the toy you always wanted but never got, except my brother did.
>>
>>21309075
>>21309077
The 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.
>>
>>21307356
It's a Transformer! I kinda wished they used the Cruise Mode more.

Predict G-Witch's capital ship.

The 1880’s equivalent of this OR it’ll look like Eva unit 01’s head but with more rings
