Discussion - Treatment of Luna Unit B

Post by Tachyon » Sat Feb 11, 2006 4:48 pm

The LED Mirage can be equipped with the Luna Unit B. The only image of this I've ever seen is in the pages of Joker 3100. It is a huge line art piece that takes up 2 large pages.

I've done my best to scan and clean up this image. I'm going to shrink it to 1150 pixels wide. Some detail is lost because of all the shrinking down I did but I think this size is best for the general public. If any of you guys want a larger version you can contact me and I'll send it to you.

Hopefully more people will be pleased than displeased with this development.

Er.... wha? I thought they've never shown the Luna Unit yet?

Isn't the illustration from Joker 3100 just the Boomerang Unit?

I'll be interested to see what image you're talking about.

Scroll down on this page. In the back of Joker 3100 there is a 2 page spread with 2 illustrations. They are titled "Luna Unit A" and "Luna Unit B."

Am I wrong? hitori? Rubel Colus? Anybody?

You two are talking about two different things. ^^

The color illustration in Joker 3100 is in fact the Boomerang Unit.

But in the black and white illustrations are of the Lunar A and B units.

So Boomerang, Lunar A, Lunar B units are all in the Joker 3100 book.

BTW, that's a really nice scan of the Lunar unit.
It must have been hard work to piece it together as the two page spreads are tough to scan right.
Thanks for your works Tachyon. :D

Oh... wow!

I totally didn't know about that b&w drawing of the Luna Unit. Awesome! Thanks for posting the image, Tachyon.

I've wondered for a long time what the Luna Unit looked like (I don't own Joker 3100).

Too bad there's no kit of LED Mirage + Luna Unit. :(

Thanks for clearing that up, hitori.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'm not so good with profiles or model kit updates so I work on images. :D
