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.

UNC_Samurai: Burr: Cyno01: 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.

I prefer western giant walking tanks....

Except the Marauder, Battlemaster, Phoenix Hawk, Rifleman, and Warhammer were all taken from Macross.


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

//really surprised someone hasn't done stop-motion animation of OPPA GUNDAM STYLE--folks have done other stop-motion animations featuring gunpla, why the hell not

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).
