Re: FSS New Profiles

I'm willing, but what we really need is someone who knows enough German and French to recognize and fix Nagano's misspellings.

Re: serialization and Designs 5 scheduled for February

Got mine. As suspected given the timeframe, Designs 5 is smaller than the previous Designs books, and actually has "Characters XIIII" on the title page. It contains the usual array of new and old art, focusing mostly on the military groups involved in the current conflict, followed by eight delightf...

serialization and Designs 5 scheduled for February

Newtype says the serialization will be back in February 2016, which should be the March issue, and Designs 5 should start selling on the same day (February 10). There will also be some sort of FSS-related bonus in the April issue as it will be the 30th anniversary. http://webnewtype.com/news/article...

Re: volume 13 scheduled for August 10

I got mine, and it's about the same as all the previous volumes, except it actually has the color parts from the Newtype serialization instead of dropping it all to black and white.

3D-printed Lego mecha frame

Looks like this Taiwanese group took the Frame Arms concept and made it a lot better.

Re: Reconguista in G

Ah, the third episode actually explains why the tech level seems so low despite being post-Universal Century: they stopped using nuclear reactors in everything. Probably a good decision considering how beat-up the Earth was from exploding mobile suits by the time of V Gundam. But the best technology...

Gundam Build Fighters Try

The other new Gundam show we were actually waiting for with giddy anticipation! Gundam Build Fighters Try, or as I like to call it, The Continuing Adventures of Ramba Ral, is the sequel to Gundam Build Fighters, which was everything I ever wanted from G Gundam that it disappointed me on. Build Fight...

Reconguista in G

Since the first couple episodes of the first Yoshiyuki Tomino-directed Gundam show in quite some time are out, it's time for some first impressions! The show itself takes place in the Universal Century timeline, but in the next age after the UC calender. Despite this, the design styling is very diff...

Re: June 2014 Newtype scans

Oh, if anyone's wondering why we don't have more yet it's because Nagano's incapable of multitasking; while he's working on volume 13 he's not working on the serialization.

Re: FSS Designs 4?

As far as MH vs GTM internals, Nagano really hasn't changed much aside from swapping out the power cylinders and ball joints with these new powered sliding joints. Everything else is just same things with new names.
