When will newfags learn?
Yeah. The movie is just a weird stopgap thing to shill some gunpla and introduce more weird psychoframe lore. Which is dumb. The more you explain it beyons "weird psychic technology that does stuff we can't explain sometimes" the more retarded it gets.
>complaining about getting more cool robots
If we got a ton of new mecha, I'd gripe less. But we just got variants and retools aside from the Narrative itself.

Why the fuck are the model kits getting so much worse?
I'm paying 20+ dollar import fees for kits that are somehow lesser in build quality than the war in the pocket kits from 6 years ago.
The fuck is going on? I know the economy over there crashed, but that doesn't mean they just forgot how to make kits.

not sure how many of you will remember this one.
Anime drawing books in general? Never seen that book in particular.
Wasn't there one mecha drawing book from the design studio that handles Sentai mecha?
its a mecha drawing book some people here probably had in the early 2000s. it also had some interview and pages dedicated to mechwarrior 4 if i remember right.
Oh, I definitely remember this book. My dad bought it for me when I was, like, six. I loved tracing all the mechs in it. The bits on how to draw different perspectives I can still kind of remember, I think it was actually pretty quality stuff, in terms of general drawing skills.

The moment the rustling around High Moon started is when I re-bought both the TF Cybertron games on Steam after having previously had them on Playstation consoles. Because at least on PC they could be kitbash-modded to keep running easily - if needed. Same with Devastation, actually.

The overly snarky dialog, "yas kween slay" type of story does not always came from millennial writers, but millennial audiences love it. It exploded in popularity since the early 2000s internet.

What happened?
SylvieClos wants to block 7v6 games together with her mod friends
What does this even mean? She wants to ban them or she wants to schedule them? First I've heard of this. t. SMOOTHIE_KING, t. Sylvie Clos twitch mod t. banned from tester chat by geg mods
Wait no you called her a funhater so she probably wants to avoid 6v7. Like okay sure but why not 7v7? Sylvie and School are trying to come up with events anyways like "spin the random character wheel" etc.
If people made 7v7s I don't think people would give a shit

So we almost always talk about fictional mecha here, occasionally dipping into real mecha whenever there's news on that front, but has it ever been established what the first real-life mecha was? Obviously fictional mecha existed in literature as far back as the mid-1800s and then we have film/manga/animated examples like Metropolis, Tetsujin and Astro Boy, respectively. But at what point did man take fictional mecha and use it as an inspiration to construct an IRL fully functional mecha?

For the purposes of this discussion (though obviously we'll stray from it the longer the thread goes), let's define mecha as having a humanoid shape that can walk (not roll on wheels/treads) and has arms and hands/fingers that can manipulate its environment (no excavator buckets or the like), and can move independently of itself without strictly following the commands of its master (no remote controls). I won't say independent power source yet, but it would be a bonus.

Still don't understand what is the real point of this thread, but technically the first REAL mecha is the first robot built by human.

So likely something older than Honda ASIMO.
It is.
>what is the real point of this thread
Indeed. Long story short. Antelope Monster, one of the Four Monsters was terrorizing the shit out of the people and being an asshole. The Young Braves go one by one to fight to kill Antelope monster. You know how that ends. The people pray to Unsen. Unsen makes a killer of enemies out of Basalt. When said killer shows up to kill Antelope monster he walks right by him and walks off into the sunset. My headcanon is he held up two middle fingers high in the air while walking away. Anyway Antelope Monster is finally killed by a young warrior who prays for the Lifegiver to take away his warbow. Challenge accepted. Antelope attacks him but bowless warrior ducks and Antelope monster slams his horns into a tree and gets stuck. He goes bonkers and beats himself senseless trying to run forward instead of backing out (the Antelope Trap). Warrior kills him, takes his last breath and yay man prospers. Also according to legend Killer of Enemies Basalt robot turns himself into a dead tree and lived in a lake for a long fucking time. More on that later. So yeah.

Finishing this after a few drinks. basalt mecha is now a fucking floating dead tree and lives in a a lake. He occasionally roars and yells at the people because fuck us apparently. This lines up with a Seneca (other Nations) tale of a tree that floated around since they could remember. Now this is actually factual. After the white men came they asked the Seneca old timers about that fucking tree and the fucking godawful noises they heard. So the the tale goes on and on and on. The white men named the floating tree "The Wandering Jew" and never had a name for the noises except for "The Lake Guns". Of course the tree eventually sank. Not sure when but some time after the Civil War.
I was the original asker >>22589151 so thanks, I don't know if there's more I can read, but I'll be fantasizing about ancient native kaiju mecha battles for a while, the floating dead tree is cool imagery

Virsago has Mega Sonic Cannon in its belly. When it's docked on the Ashtaron I think it's the Mega Sonic Launcher.
Shagia got disabled while Garrod lived happily ever after with Tiffa
I think DX and Frosties were so close to each other that the impact damaged both
TSC still could steal the satellite energy which implies it can render The Satellite Launcher useless if DX took the link before it
How did Garrod survive that without a scratch?
Shagia got crippled and Olba had bandage on his head.
So, you're saying you like Buddy Complex.

Huh? Have you forgotten the finale? The name of the weapon is Satellite Launcher and it used the moon base for power just like the Satellite Cannon. The Frosts had UNE people taking it over exactly to be able to fire (sending energy to them manually) since they couldn't activate it through newtype powers.

For more specific details, according to the Japanese wikipedia referencing official descriptions...


Apparently according to the Japanese wiki, some official materials says that it was based on an "enhanced Large Type Satellite Cannon" and the output is comparable to the Twin Satellite Cannon. However, it also has a longer charging time.

Aw so no Speed cheesing?
Yazan only in V, and so was Jerid? You know, if Kamille kills Jerid himself, I would expect him to not get mind broken by Scirocco because of Jerid's own spirit and his true feelings about Scirocco's mentality.
Yazan had enough redeeming qualities (or rather he's not as depraved as the other Titans) that they made him a straight up anti-hero in the Johnny Ridden manga
