Maybe even they know how much of a piece of garbage the RR/TT bottle toy is.

Its 2020 and Gundam has inexplicably become the most popular fictional franchise in history in 2 short years. Disney has just closed on the trillion dollar acquisition of Bandai, and for no reason, wants to immediately begin work on a live-action movie of Char's Counterattack with a budget of 1 gorillion dollars. Your job is to cast the main roles of the film.

Katoki designs.
Gundam is actually owned by Sotsu Agency and Sunrise together.

Bandai Namco Holdings fully owns Sunrise.

However, Bandai Namco only owns 22.26% of Sotsu Agency.

Thus Bandai does not actually have full control of Gundam. It has very close ties with Sotsu Agency and they both work for the benefit of the franchise, but it's not and never has been unilateral control by Bandai.

Disney would have to buy out both Bandai Namco Holdings and Sotsu Agency. Or at the very least get another 30% or so of Sotsu Agency's stocks on top of what they get with Bandai's.
It would be one of their shitty child actor drones

It's hard to say this, but I feel that LupvsPat has really dropped the ball in terms of a Red ranger, despite having two.

They're so bland and lifeless, they don't even really feel like they have a distinct character at all and any traits they have are cliche and boring. Coming off Kyuranger, which had one of the best Reds since Shinkenger it's a real let down honestly.

Sakura Wars interview in regards to the recent Paris Team Collab in X-O

Did you know that the producer of Sakura Wars was secretly amongst us, posting his Top Ace screens during the release of Z3?
Hard to tell what's different in specifics, but given the starting unit roster it's definitely not the same thing as before.

The EFSF is canonically so budget conscious they fielded retrofitted GMs for almost twenty years and stuck with the Jegan for 30.

So why the hell does Anaheim keep floating more and more expensive concepts at them? You'd think they have gotten the picture after all their "GM successors" were rejected for the GMII.

the thing about the current strategic bombers is that they are very good at what they are designed to do, and no one can come up with a design that does the same thing better without adding on a bunch of extra features like nuclear reactors or autonomous flight that would make it an entirely different aircraft.

at this point strategic bomber is kind of a dead role, thats why only 3 countries still have them and they are mostly for dick-waving. there is little reason to develop a new one when their primary purpose ended when the Berlin Wall came down and the current ones can be kept running for a few more decades.

>It's not like the planes don't wear out (out of all 744 B-52s built, 76 are still capable today) but it's not like the B-52's current existence is some penny pinching, old and decrepit, shameful thing.

current deployment numbers of strategic bombers have more to do with the SALT and START arms limitations treaties than anything like fleet maintenance or airframe fatigue. many of them were broken up and left in the desert to rot for several decades visible to Russian spy satellites, the rest are disassembled for parts to keep the rest of the fleet running without buying new parts.
My best answer to you would be to take (literally any) course in basic marketing. I'm not sure how to answer requests for proof for very common things. (Not trying to sound like a jackass.)

Yes. Because that means each hg sold on average 75,000 pcs. Which means since like barbatos made way over 100,000

Only S1 and first half of S2. After the Hamshal episodes it goes shit really fast.
So S2 dropped in TV ratings and DVD sales but IBO kits still sell really well is what I get from this thread.

well try didn't exactly fail, it just didn't sell as much as original Build Fighters.
How would that even fit into the events of the story, not to mention the setting? Aren't Mobile Armors supposed to be automated? If they did have another mobile armor fight, I'd imagine that he'd at least be issuing orders to the MA's AI remotely.

Not sure if OP has literal autism or just regular dumb.
>cannot into metacontext

people used to spam threads very much like this one, only, because that crease in the paper cuts off the top of the "y", and the bottom of the "u" in "you", the question posed would instead by "why does Kai wish that he was gay?"

The joke is that there isn't a joke. It's still very much not funny.
Wrong. These are the funniest threads for me
So was Quatro THE Char or just merely a Char as Kai suggests.
He meant the former, but the latter is also correct. The letter is where we got labeling Char-like ported characters like Zechs and Vidar as the "CHAR" (in all caps) of their respective series.

I'd rather have that than just shoving in as much iconic shit as possible with no regards to context so fans can say I CLAPPED WHEN I SAW IT when they watch the trailer. That's how you get trash like FMA and GitS.

Eh... It maybe an unpopular opinion, but I sorta like the live action GITS despite it being mediocre and bland . I wouldn't classify it as a favorite though.

The only thing hollywood would do right if they somehow got their hands on the gundam franchse is having mecha jump around and move like a gigantic machine ninja

The biggest problem with GitS is I'd rather just watch the original since it's better in every way.

Alright /m/, how would you modify the original to better suit a modern audience?
89 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.

I don't think you can. Moreover, I don't think you SHOULD.

Tetsujin (and really most of the early giant robots in anime, like Mazinger Z) were allegories for the public worries post WW2. They're metaphors for the dangers of technology run amock, realized as mechanical giants we either fear or look to for protection. The metaphor at the heart of Tetsujin is what gives the show meaning. If all you try and do is update the visuals and stick to the same general premise, you're going to fall flat; it doesn't speak to the problems of the current era the same way it did to those in the 60s and 70s.

I think that might be why mecha animation doesn't get quite as much traction these days, plus the fact spending habits in kids doesn't lend itself as well to massive toy campaigns to offset the cost of the production like it did in the past. Build Divers tries to hit this new paradigm of mass market appeal by turning the premise into a video game, which every kid can relate to and understand.

Figure out a way to make Tetsujin relevant in the digital landscape. That's your update.
>Tetsujin (and really most of the early giant robots in anime, like Mazinger Z) were allegories for the public worries post WW2. They're metaphors for the dangers of technology run amock, realized as mechanical giants we either fear or look to for protection.

I have my doubts that the original Tetsujin manga series was like this. Also, I know for a fact that Mazinger Z has ZERO allegories for the public worries post WW2.

I wanted to shitpost that I don't even like them but that song actually I gotta admit fits into my listening taste way more than their usual stuff. Make no mistake, I do agree they were great, it's just that it's not particularly pleasant to me to listen to, for some mysterious reasons. I guess I like stuff to be more delicate, less rough and I probably don't have compatibility with blues influences.

You say that as if that isn't enough on it's own. That aside, he defeated said alien multiple times in multiple styles of combat despite her being the alien races most famous ace and pioneered the use of constant form changes in battle to take advantage of both the variable silhouette it offers and the maneuverability and range in vectors it gives you and mastered it to a degree no-one else in show did. I'm not even sure anyone used it nearly as effectively again after him full stop. Certainly Basara and Hayato didn't, and while I recall Alto changing form quite often I don't think he or Isamu ever used it as much or as well.

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn is the most disappointing thing ever since my son's snafit build of a bootleg gunpla which I bought for 5 cents rom Bangkok . It is the latest chapter in the seemingly never ending merchandising saga of Universal Century, unless you give a damm about something called Twilight axis existing. It was made in a way to keep likes of me who imported all those VHS tapes from Hong Kong around and to get all those new kids in the block get attached to this animation franchise featuring robots fighting each other with light sabers. And doing so made me angry about all that stuff they added retroactively but made clueless kids gloss over something they have no idea about. Fucking insufferable jerks get off my-
1. From a retrospective
You see when a guy called Yoshi Tommy..aah... Yosh-i-yuki To-mi-no conceived the original series, it was about space colonies waging war with the federation for their independence. No, I am not talking about Star Trek, this is set in just in our good'ol Sol System and has no aliens, just regular douchebags. Later story and lore will build up on this with each subsequent series. Here in Unicorn we go way back to the very first day the universal century begins and then come to 3 years later the events of Char's counterattack almost a century. Somehow, we have to digest the fact that for 96 years no one noticed the debris of the colony in the lower earth orbit that was used to be the residence of Earth Federation's first president. To think that it's military potential was never utilized in a setting that had entire space colonies dropped on earth and human experimentation to create Artificial Jedi doesn't make sense. Speaking of old shit no one noticed until now, it brings me to

You, my sir, are a man of (proto)culture.
This design has more kit releases than just about any other in gundam in every conceivable scale, yet why have they never done one with a regular transparent psycho frame? it bothers the shit out of me there isnt a single release that gives you the option to use clear paints & make the psychoframe any colour you want.
How would you guys make a theoretical upgrade for the Phenex? Unicorn had FA, Banshee had Norn, but what about the birb?
