Nice. Post updates if you ever go to a meetup I'd be interested to here how it goes. I found this meetup I might attend later this month which could be pretty fun. Hopefully I'll meet some fellow G Reco fans facebook /events/609306439170909/

>didn't care whether or not the person he's talking to is actually listening
Pretty sure you can find people like this in any nerd fandom. People get so excited to have somebody to talk to about their hobbies that they forget all about social skills (or didn't have them in the first place).
Bandai constantly reproduces kits (going all the way back to the original kits from the 80s.) The rate at which kits get reproduced depends on their popularity.
So in a general sense, newer kits get more production runs done quicker because there is still a ton of market demand for them.

As for a proper MG Gold Frame; the GAT-X frame used by the MG SEED RM kits uses a different size peg & polycap for the shoulder joint than the MG Astray Frame. So they'd at least need to make a few adapter parts.
Unfortunately, if they made the kit it would most likely be a P-Bandai release as the Blitz & Astray runners are not laid out in an efficient enough manner to make the Gold Frame Amatsu efficiently.
You'd also have the added cost of new runners and you're looking at a kit that would cost around 7000-8000 Yen, before plating came into question.

To add-on, I have tried with my Red Frame (P-Bandai) & Blitz.
The Blitz are is loose and can't hold up the weapon system well. Like wise, peg length is an issue.
It could definitely be fixed/made with some plastic rod & brass rod for support if you wanted to do a custom.
You would still need that HG 1/100 kit for the backpack though.

I personally have the HG 1/100, and it's not an awful kit. The HG proportions are a bit more bulky than the MG version but it still looks pretty good.

>If true this would be an insane coincidence
>Gets the shit beat out of him by Wong "Child beater" Lee for being late because he was fixing it
>Later Bright offhandedly says that a harro Toyline was made which called everyone "Amuro" or "Bright".

Plz don't be rude, the guy can't help it he's autistic.

I like how this show keeps telling us how shitty the 3v3 match ups are by making the last clash a 1v1.
The particle limit thing was an asspull and everyone standing around saying UM GONNA FITE SEKAI NO IM GONNA FITE TRY FIGHTERS instead of wanting to win the goddamned tournament.

Actually no. In the first ep Fumina and her team were in a battle against either a lot of other players are were trying to win a scenario against some giant gundam(I dunno the name of it and don't know if it was original or what),
Maybe Lucas won the European championship because it was 1v1
But Minato sucks.
He's the only character that makes the show even remotely fun.

I know Halo is /m/ related, seeing a few threads about it in the past but I was wondering if anyone here reads the books because apparently one of the more recent ones has the author in the franchise canon killing off the Rookie from Halo 3: ODST.

Otherwise, what's your guys favorite Spartan armors? Or ODST armors? What do you like about the Halo universe? Do you enjoy the fluff? Favorite game?

"Better kill them off."
Knowing these hacks, Blue Team will die in the next book/game.

But hey, you'll have Sarah "Egghead" Palmer! Isn't that great?!
I grew up playing Halo 1 + 2 campaigns and doing system links with those games. I think Halo 3 came out my first or second year of high school, which was pretty much it for me and the Halo series. I did play 4 around when it came out and couldn't help feeling disappointed.

I've read all of the novels up through Cole Protocol multiple times. Eric Nylund's works are amazing though. I think at this point in my life its better to let Halo fade into the fog of nostalgia rather than keep up with the extended universe (which still interests me but I've heard mixed things about both of the new book trilogies) and games (in which I have absolutely no interest). But goddamn if I won't pick up Ghosts of Onyx every now and then and remember how much I love that universe.
I have really awful opinions on Halo and keep them to myself, any fans I've mentioned them to have hated them.
well now you've got me curious, speak up. After all, you are an anonymous stranger on the internet

What I liked about CB was the fact that customization were extensive you could just stick parts on to parts and call it a bot.

I would probably even tolerate the moebots if they could actually be mix and matched as well. But nope, can't disassemble the lolis.

And then there's the usual gara hate bla bla power creep.
new to /m/ here, this... cosmic break thing, the old one, can it be played in english? if so, can it be played "only" against friends?, do you have to buy parts? and if you do, do you have to buy them with real money?

I recommend against playing it, but that's me. I ain't gonna stop you.
It's an MMO, so you're playing with whoever else would be online. Yes, there is an english version. Some parts can be bought with an in-game currency, but a lot of the good stuff is gotten with real money, and even then you gotta be lucky to get it by taking part in a random chance roll for bots and parts.
give us your arms Winberrl we want your ARMS
there is also the new second one in the works but how that goes no one knows and the fact that it is not even funded completely means it has an unknown future

I'm happy atleast nova gets a new hurricane attack in mspaint
Is Masaki the first OG or is there anyone who predates him?
The issue with Nova is the same as with Compatible Kaiser in the OG games: Obari did the storyboarding for the animations, so they have to do the same exact thing every time out of some weird respect or whatever.
The problem is that the Compatible Kaiser in OGG looked significantly cooler than Nova in Z2 to begin with, and only had its effects improved coming into OG2nd instead of stripped down with Nova going into Z3, so it doesn't seem nearly as awful. Furthermore, Kaiser gets an awesome theme song while Nova's stuck with the worst, sleep-inducing rendition of its OP.
Kinda sorta. The actual first is Mecha-Gilgilgan, which was actually the final boss of SRW 1 and an extra form for Gilgilgan from Great Mazinger VS Getter Robo.
Masaki is the first to be both 100% original and playable, though.

Oh wow, there seriously has been no Gundam show airing in the USA since then? That's fucking shit mate.

Why don't you fuckers just say NA?

Because you're always talking about NA, not the ''west''.

SEED, Destiny & 00 all aired after that.
SEED was 04/05
Destiny was 07/08
00 was 08/09
Do you know even /a/ hardly care your shit toy commercial.

Because it suck
Fine. It shitbombed in NA because they don't know how to sell gundam to an audience that does not give a fuck about gundam.
Even worse, the gundam series that proved to be OBSCENELY popular? Didn't follow up on it with something very similar or make an ova or series that mimiced what was popular but not in a derivative way.
G Gundam was good and should have aired before or after DBZ(maybe it did, I dunno) but it needed another wing or something like it to keep if going.

Project Nimbus. A Steam game.
Whatever it is, I'm pretty sure plagiarism is going on.
From what? The proportions are a bit like armored core, but the aesthetic is completely different. Also, it's Project Nimbus, OP. It's basically a flight game, not very mecha-feeling at all. There's no weight to the movement.
Before I opened the image it looked like a guardian from Knights of Sidonia. Same color scheme too.
I seem to recall that the Guardians are way less bulky than that thing, but what am I to say, since I only read like the first 10 chapters of the manga and kinda stopped there.

I used to think it was Goranger, but given that everything online (and Toei themselves sometimes as you say) uses Gorenger, I don't see why I should say Goranger. As far as I'm concerned, they're interchangeable and not really worth complaining about.

Now then, is Ninninger the first series since then to use Japanese color names for the rangers? Did they just do it because some other team was already calling themselves something too similar to 'Red Ninja', or was it perhaps to make it more 'Japanese-y' to fit the theme of the show?
Haha, yes! In your face, subninjas! As long as at least Mega-Anon's active, there's always hope.
What the hell are you talking about?
Subninjas is used as a term to refer to real-life stuff preventing fansub groups from working on shows, sometimes to the point where they are never heard from again. This was coined by the sub group AXSUS (Anti Xabungle Sub-Ninja Union Subgroup), who jokingly "cursed" the subninjas for slowing them down. I recall that one of their members went missing this way and could no longer participate in the Xabungle project.

As such, sometimes if sub progress on a show has a long period of inactivity, folks here blame the "subninjas" for it, to the point of using meme images. GUIS used the term itself in their update page for the final Kakuranger episode (pretty ironic, considering...).
