So... when we get around to building actual giant robots and spaceships and stuff... do you think well model them after what weve seen in science fiction because thats what theyre supposed to look like?

I know japan will.

This is what happens when Japanese animators get their hands on the story of the Ents.

Gundam Conference? Is it going to be entirely staffed by whiny, 14 year old teen glamour boys with an unprecedented knowledge of affairs that belie their age?
 
2012-10-19 02:51:42 PM  
Appropriate for when Char Aznable hijacks the conference in order to make some hippie speech about letting Earth return to its natural state

that's a great way to waste resources, but honestly, I don't care one way or the other

There is a Gundam conference? Sounds cool. I guess.

Came for the Char reference, left satisfied.
Came for the 00 reference, left surprisingly satisfied.
Did not exactly expect Gangnam Gundam...now I have to put my spleen back in place from laughing :D

/yes, I am easily amused

Yes and no. Let me explain. Some of them are gonna be humanoid because we're very anthropocentric creatures, and we want them to look like us, but the biggest most useful ones will be fairly ergonomically designed (and given the huge costs, those will probably be the first and the most).

I'll wander into one of our local anime stores ocassionally and have my mind boggled by the sheer number of Gundam model kits on the wall. Jebus, how do people keep track of whats what? farking things all look the same to me.

The entire goddamn video was redone placing color-appropriate model heads. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?!

Honestly? We let this Korean guy catalog them for us. http://www.dalong.net/ The letters at the top (HG, MG etc) go to complete indexes of the different scale sizes.

I only prefer them if they are fueled by helping heapings of religious zealotry and warcrimes. 

/Been liking muv luv lately.
/That is to say I love the robots, but the enemies are stupidly designed and the anime is dull.
/plus its got alot of arbitrary operating rules that pop up at awkward moments.
/*a dozen episodes after robots are seen leaping into the sky* "I cant fly unless I reach TAKEOFF SPEED on a RUNWAY!" *next episode, more robots seen leaping into the sky*.

Don't forget the Stinger and the Wasp.

And I don't recall the Battlemaster in Macross.

Ah, ok, it's not from Macross, but it still is one of The Unseen
