Oh yeah, I forgot about Dragonar. Some of the designs are interesting, especially the flyers like Schewlg http://www.mahq.net/mecha/dragonar/dragonar/ffa-02.jpg and Dowtewn http://www.mahq.net/mecha/dragonar/dragonar/afa-03.jpg And yeah, Advance of Zeta has been brilliant. I am not happy with Bandai...

My only explanation is that they're all prototype and red canopy is for make it clearly visible, so other pilot would avoid shooting there in test. Here's some mass produced designs: http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/zz/amx-011.jpg http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/zz/amx-011s.jpg http://www.mahq.net...

Try to ignore the story and focus on just the mechanic designs. . . Patlabor - I loved Patlabor when it first came out, and consider the Alphonse to be one of the most classic robot designs in all anime. I didn't like many of the following designs following the first series, like the Peacemaker, but...

Favorite Mech series and why. . .

No making a poll because there are too many to list, but what anime series stick out in your head as having your favorite mechs? I have a few, mostly for different reasons. In no particular order: Macross - The movie Do You Remember and the original series, not the crap that has followed. I think th...

Re: Mecha good idea and bad idea

Mecha with cockpit in the body, good idea. Not necessarily when the mobile suit's canopy door is painted red while the rest is painted in a dark color. . . Mecha with cockpit in the head, bad idea. Although sometimes this works well like in Layzner and Dougram, even Xabungle, but over all I can't s...

Man, I hope you didn't pay a lot for that. Probably the worst character and mech designs in all of anime. Still blows my mind that it was selected as the second chapter if Robotech. Personally I would have prefered Orguss as it was originally considered, but can see storywise how it didn't make it. ...

Let it go Tachyon, it isn't worth the stress. Besides, all you did was scan the art, you didn't draw it or own the designs, so are they really yours? And I ask that as one of the biggest pirates on the net. You just have to figure that if you post it, someone is going to use it for themselves. If yo...

I don't know if this is any help, but the M.Lover / M.Rover debate reminds me of something. When I lived in Hong Kong, the Chinese had a hard time pronouncing certain english words with the 'L' letter. They would always pronounce them with an 'R' in it's place. So my sister Kelly was always called K...

Dougram

I am sticking my Dougram section back up, although I am in the process of reformating much of it. There is enough to chew on for awhile though if you are interested. . .

Tallgeese pistol??

This should raise some eyebrows. . . Anyone know what the weapon is, or have seen a picture of the Tallgeese double barrelled pistol Zech's uses when taking on the Mobile Dolls? I can't remember the episode number, but it takes place in space when he is on Peacemillion I think. At any rate, it isn't...

I just wrote a freaking huge review and the *#%@^# forum ate it. Check out www.system17.com for the Battle of Stanrey. I'll have Kalnock up later this week. I used to have the Votoms game but I sold it. I'll re-write my review when I am in a better mood.

Hey Tachyon, why isn't when I log into the message board it takes me to (what seems like) a different one that is white, not grey?
