Well after months delays the Reborns Gundam has been built so here is a show case of both modes

Firstly reborn cannon

And now Reborns Gundam

Dem heels

Kit was a fun build and the transformation is so simple and is not a partsformer like other high grades (for the most part but poping off hands I won't count towards partsforming)

Nicely done. I love the Reborns, both modes. It's pretty slick and yet very menacing. Pretty elegant too, as expected from an eiltist snob like Ribbons.

Dem heels would make Rozen Zulu blush.

Watching Gundam Unicorn Episode 6, just heard Full Frontal's plan...

Am I missing something? This doesn't sound evil or ominous, he just wants to create an economic partnership excluding the people denying them autonomy.

"This is theway of world". Indeed, he's being completely rational from what I can tell. I just like to know what he plans on doing about the Federation military, can't fight it off, he doesn't have the manpower.

Spoilering in case anyone hasn't watched Unicorn yet:

SPOILER: Show
The plan actually makes sense: in fact, it makes even MORE sense that Char's plan from CCA. From what I could gather, the Earth in 0096 is incapable of supporting what has been previously established to be an extremely reduced population (I guess we could blame this on four colony drops in the last 16 years). The countless wars between 0079-0093 have most likely pushed the planet into the edge (remember: Operation British caused the deaths of a huge percentage of the population on Earth, tilted the planet's axis by who knows how many degrees and caused climate changes everywhere), meaning that now, ironically, the Earth needs of giant prison tubes with limited resources to feed itself, literally.

Full Frontal suggests that the Sides could committ practic genocide and just starve the Earth to death by refusing to trade with them. Of course, they'd need a very large, powerful military reserve to stop the Earth Federation Space Forces from even being deployed to seize the goods from the colonies. From what we've seen of the Federation, they do seem awfully willing to commit their resources toward the Space Force: the UC Project as a whole and its consequent remnants (the RX-0s, the General Revil, the expansion of Londo Bell, new Jegan variants, the Jestas, etc.), meaning that if the colonies would ever attempt to do any sort of scheme like this, you'd have an entire Londo Bell fleet surrounding the colonies.

Had Char taken this approach instead of the more theatrical (nothing wrong with theatricality, mind you) "drop-a-huge-thing-on-Earth-and-fight-Amuro-one-last-time scheme" he'd concocted three years ago, F91 and Victory would be redundant.
Of course, one could argue that Char's true motives in CCA were purely symbolical/ideological, and he wanted to be some sort of "symbol" or something.
There's also the convenient fact that nobody up to that time knew about the Laplace's Box existence. But now that they do, they are taking the "safer" approach.


tl;dr Yazan Gable Full Frontal will make a Space Bloc that will have a monopoly on the basic needs the Earth needs if he gets the Box, and coupling the monopoly with the Box means that the colonies will be able to make the Federation do whatever they want with the threat of both starvation of the entire Earth's population.



Oh, and this just in:

機動戦士ガンダムUC(ユニコーン) @gundam_unicorn 7h

このΞガンダムが登場する「機動戦士ガンダム 閃光のハサウェイ」は、時代的にはガンダムUCの約9年後となる宇宙世紀105年が舞台。ep7では、これくらい先の時代への布石となるようなものも登場する予定です。 (広報いぬ) #g_uc

>> it's said that Xi Gundam will make an cameo in episode 7 as a stepping stone to the 'much earlier era', perhaps referring the period between CCA/Unicorn and F91. Seeing that Fukui is a fan of Hathaway's Flash, wouldn't be surprised if he tried to sneak a reference to the novel.

Like Schwartz, I'll spoiler my response:

SPOILER: Show
To explain what would be bad about it, we would have to remember Mineva's counterargument. If I remember right, she suggests that if this plan goes into effect, Earth would be in the same postition as the colonies are now. Earth would likely accelerate it's redevlopment to the point of self suffencenty and then come back into space with a vengence starting the whole process of war again with Earth and space continuing to trade places as master and servant. I believe Mineva's point is that Frontal's plan doesn't have the potential to be a premanent solution. It would preserve the "us vs them" thinking between Earth and the colonies leading to further conflict. She and Bannagher want to try to use the box for all of humanity to help bring about a permanent peace, the "possibility" that kept being brought up during that scene.

With that being said, Frontal's plan would still be a good plan if the box's contents can't help everyone. Even Captain Otto had to admit that he didn't know if what the Nagel Agrama was doing or Frontal's plan would be the better option.

1 Mobile Suit I've fallen in love with a little is the RGM-79C Powered GM from0083: Stardust Memory. I don't know why but I absolutely adore the design. Is Stardust Memory any good?

Also, I took the Gateway Gundam test and it suggested Char's Counterattack. I wonder if that says anything about me...

EDIT: I took the test again, and it said 08th MS Team was for me, which seems about right, as I absolutely love the series.

It says you are probably into U.C. but you shouldn't watch CCA before you have seen the original MSG and Zeta at least.

Stardust is pure unadulterated early 90s OVA mecha porn but the story is eh. Try to imagine if you were watching a mecha version of Top Gun, except Tom Skerrit dies horribly for no real reason, and Kelly McGillis used to get deep-dicked by the terrorists, so she shoots Tom Cruise at the end and lets them bomb the carrier. That’s Stardust Memories.

This is pretty accurate :hahaha:

Lulz. Maid Shinji approves!

Also, one series I will NOT be watching is Mobile Fighters G Gundam on account of the fact it is the worst thing to ever happen to anime ever. Period.

It says a lot when a Gundam based on a Japanese schoolgirl piloted by a woman from Sweden is the most sensible thing in the entire series.

ARGH.

Although Tequila Gundam is quite cool. A bit. Maybe.

Still shit though.

Not sure if serious...

Seriously. I can't tell if you're being facetious (recognizing facetiousness was never my strong point) or if you are actually defending Mobile Fighters G Gundam. I don't know which is worse...

of the non-UC timeline stuff, G Gundam is actually one of the most watchable and entertaining behind Turn A. It certainly beats the pants off of the boredom of slogging through After War X and the insufferable angst & fujoshit pandering of Wing.

oh no no no no don't listen to that suggestion then if you want to get into U.C. with out investing into 40+ episode series then watch the MGS trilogy which is a great gate way into U.C.

edit: not giving G a chance come on man Master Asia makes that show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAizwLfZbUA

Har Har, I see what you did there.

:asuka_stare:

In all seriousness...I'm not a fan of the overly GAR series (why I loved Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann so much I will never know) so...yeah. The show is probably actually quite good, but the just plain stupid MS designs (A fish? Really?) and general GAR overload just doesn't do it for me.

The MAster Gundam is pretty cool, I'll agree.

Still no excuse for Zebra Gundam or Skull Gundam though And as for this...thing...UGH.
