Favorite Paptimus Scirocco Designed MS

Post by Daishikaze » Mon Oct 25, 2004 11:27 am

Which of these is your favorite Scirocco design and why?

I'm pretty sure I know which will win, but I have been proven wrong before.

O.k. I like the styling of the Pallas and the Messala, but the O wins on overall design. It is probably the only mobile armor (since it seems a little large for just a mobile suit) that was actually a threat to the main character.

Mine is list in poll...
PMX-004 Titania
It has both hidden beam sword and funnel. Though I doubt about biosensor...(And it is female version of The O.)

From list, I go for Messala.

hmm this is a nice design ~! :o I've not seen it before.

It's somewhat of a cross between Pallas Athene and The O.

There's also a very nice version of the The O, but I just can't remember where it appears :?

I voted for Pallas Athene tho...

I like them all for various reason, but I choose the Messala, its just a really interesting design to me. Having almost as much fire power as a battleship and great speed are definate pluses for me

All others I like very much ^_^

I agree, its not Ugly, its just rather plain compared to the other designs, it doesn't have anything that makes it stand out really.

Do you mean the The-O II "Hauer"/Neo Geo?

There was also the PMX-005 Breda, which was a Kondo design that never appeared in the animation but appeared in his side stories and is a favorite of mine
http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/kondo/pmx-005.htm

I never understood how (dodging spoiler) considering what happened to Paptimus in Zeta how there could be a PMX-004 or a PMX-005, but I guess maybe he had them on the drawing board and they were built by others, considering he designed and constructed PMX-000 through PMX-003 himself.

Of the suits listed, I would go with the Palace Athene. I love that back missle rack.

Wow, I didn't expect this, it seems that the Pallas Athene is winning the poll so far, I thought for sure everyone would have said The O, since is seems the be the most popular suit everywhere else I go.

The O (or "the big potato", as I like to call it) has got to be my favorite just for its sheer wierdness -- AND the fact that it still manages to be really cool. However, the Messala is a very close second.

On the lineart for the PMX-005, it appears to have a Axis/Neo-Zeon insigna on the chest section. That still may not make it canonicle, but it shows that the original purpose of the design is that it may be a design by Scirocco, that after his death or even before, may have leaked into Haman's forces hands. Note the alternative model number. It seems in any case to be little more then a modified PMX-003.

As for the Bolinoak Samaan, while I think its ugly, those ugly aspects may be attributed to the purpose of the MS. IIRC the main purpose of the Samaan is recon, and the Radome in the head(which is the ugliest section IMO), helps to show this.

I voted for The O, but the Palace Athene is my second favorite.

My vote went to the Pallas Athene also , it just looks good and when you add the full equipment load out it just gets that much better . The O was alright , just not in my tastes asthetically , oddly enough I do like the Bolinoak , it's very purposeful and uncluttered in design .
Do you understand?

I voted for The O, because The O is the one my favor MS instead Gundam.
The O's design is very unique, it really don't like a real robot like Gundam, it is like a super robot. When you look at it's body, it will makes you think can this thing fight. Then The O just kick Z gundam's ass.
The O also is a powerful enemy in Super robot war, I always lost 4 or 5 robots on it.
That is why I like The O.
Plus: I read an article before it said the designer of The O he got inspiration from a BMW car. I don't know is this true or not?
