I swear this isn’t a bait thread. I just wanna discuss Aerial and its issues.
>>
>>22642745
Okay. What do you wanna discuss about it?
>>
>>22642745
Don't mind me, I just finally have a reason to post this.

Ok, let's discuss how much of a faggot you are and why your thread is shit.
>>
I wonder what the Red Eyes mode was supposed to be for, given the reportedly different drafts made prior to scrapping everything and doing a school story.
>>
>>22643637
Ironically, Aerial looks better with red eyes.
>>
I like Aerial but I just wish it struggled more. I understand what they wanted to do with "giving the MC an overpowered MS only for it to be the vilain MS later" but all battle felt like they had no tension due to this.

Gundam always are powerful of course but Aerial felt like it was never in danger, even in the Shaddiq fight when it gets damaged.
>>
>>22642781
But why did you post that?
>>
>>22643672
Always wondered why the red eye stickers. Can't help but wonder if they cut something out.
>>
>>22643637
Those drafts would've been scrapped before Aerial even had a final design. The other ideas were super early, it's not like it was a last minute setting pivot.
What's really curious is that I don't think Rebuild had them, and FM Aerial has no provisions at all for red eyes on the mouldings.
>>22643686
If I had to hazard a guess, maybe permet 6 initially. And/or when Eri took over, which in the final show only really happened after the rebuild design.
>>22643682
I'd probably agree if not for how well they integrated the bits into Suletta's fighting style. I really loved how she used them as a holistic element of the suit.
The decision to make the stakes a little lower in the fights helped there too, I think at least. Your protagonist probably isn't going to get pasted halfway into your show, but you could at any point have her lose her title and have the story veer off as a result.
Fair point though.
>>
>>22643682
The clear superiority of Aerial made sense in the context that it was pretty much running off banned technology that was further developed.
Trying to win without implementing their own units that has the tech or flatout countering the permet technology(which they tried, until they realised the anti-GUND tech they had isn't able to deal with higher levels of permet which no one expected since no one actually reached those permet levels back in the day).
>>
Anyone else felt like the V-fin should’ve been yellow?
>>
>>22642745
It's like the daughter of the 0 Gundam and Barbatos.
>>
>>22642745
Don't care much about the show outside of the gunpla, but I wished they didn't use blue beam effects for the kit.
>>
>>22643887
I usually prefer white V-fins, like on the RX78-2 or Exia. Aerial Rebuild on the other hand could look cool with one white and one yellow, like the Impulse has
>>
>>22642745
Nothing really jumps out to me about Aerial’s design. I mean, it’s not like those Chinese third party designs which are all like “let’s cram as many spikes and other shit into this thing as possible,” but it’s still too busy for my liking.

I haven't even watched Gundam, I just think this mecha is hot.
>>
>>22642745
Problems with the show aside Aerial is the most fun I've ever had lining an HG. The constant rounded surfaces tickle my brain good.
>>
>>22644556
All the main Gundam kits from WfM are bizarrely good. FM Aerial is super worth it if you've been considering it too. Honestly the kit that made me think that if MG is dead, I'm perfectly fine with FMs of this calibre taking their place.
Still waiting for 1/100 Rebuild and Calibarn, you Bandai fucks.

The bit control is the most intricate of any gundam to date.

As mentioned it was probably to be used whenever Eri took charge, probably chose to not use it since it probably would’ve been too on the nose

The midseason upgrade and Caliburn are both strictly better looking.

Calibarn yes, Rebuild no. I Enjoy it for story purposes and symbolism, but the Aerial is better than the Rebuild.
>>
>>22642745
I really like this design and it's litheness even though I think it'd look better 2D animated

Rebuild is cool, but the waist makes it look a bit uncanny. The original Aerial is much leaker, which fits it better. However, Rebuild's "wings" are cool, which is why I like the Mirasoul Flight Pack.
>>
>>22656040
Rebuild color scheme is the biggest improvement with it. A darker less lighthearted blue, and drops most of the yellow and red to look more serious business overall.
>>
>>22644446
In this case, having a yellow V-fin would've been better. Sometimes at some angle, the white V-fin and white antenna kinda blend with each other, which results in mistaking the latter being attached to the former.

You kinda need the V-fin to stand out just so it doesn't get sucked in by the helmet's colors. Like the Age-2 Dark hound, or Mark 2 Gundam.

Generic ass design. Everything that makes Aerial standout was gone. Almost feels like the original designer was fired.

No, Phenex is complete and utter bullshit.

too round is not necessarily no round good, but it's upgraded form is pretty much an ideal MC craft
