i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

If they know it all, what's the point of hiring creative teams to make the shows? Some ideas only develop once the episode is in the can. I highly doubt every single idea for AGE is set in stone right now.


The show was first planned as a video game but Bandai/Sunrise liked it so much that they did it as a proper show. The whole AGE Systems very existence is so Level 5 wouldn't have to add more than one Gundam to the show.

Since Bandai, much like Hasbro would want to have lead time with producing toys to match the airing of the show they would want to have an idea what to expect. Bandai is also evil. They can very well get people to buy variations on the same design with newer features and accessories.

So in the end they probably win anyway.

Buy yeah. I could imagine waiting a few months until the power and speed variation limbs appeared and made a variable MG. Buying the same expensive items with new limbs feels a bit...

So I'm pretty much guessing at this point that HIGHLIGHT to view:
Yurin, Decil, and Flit himself are all tied to the UE. In fact, much like the Innovators, they all have ... VERY brightly colored hair, don't they? Each one kind of sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the rest of the cast.

Decil's interesting, more interesting than I expected for a character his age. Given just HOW young he is, though, I kind of wonder if that isn't setting him up to be even more significant in the second act or so of the show.

I am loving Grodek, just all around. This has all gotta come back and bite him in the butt at some point, but for now he's really impressing me.

I think Emily's reactions are entirely understandable, given she's a young girl herself and merely concerned with Flit not dying a horrible, burning death. Especially given that he's sort of been just scraping by so far, up to the point he even got HIGHLIGHT to view:
Gundamjacked this week.

Should we maybe have a separate thread for AGE discussion, like we had going for 00?

Eventually, somebody's going to slip up and post something that nobody wanted to see. I'm doing my best to skim past AGE discussion myself, but I'm a fast reader...

I'm sure we'll be fine with spoiler-tagging discussion of the latest AGE episode; the toku thread does this with several shows and doesn't end up accidentally spoiling things.

I was under the impression that Gundams tended to get stolen by other members of the crew at least once in any given series. It pretty much always ends badly- presuming they can get it out of the door it ends up getting trashed by Enemy of the Week.

I'm aware of all that. However, we know fully well that things can change between even initial announcements mid-run. Perfect example- Anew in 00 was announced with character art which made her look shifty, since she was going to openly be a spy competing with Lyle. Then the sponsors insisted on a doomed romance plot, so this got shifted into her being an unwitting pawn for Ribbons. Even more importantly for mecha, things can change based on viewer response. Buster ain't selling? Let's stick Dearka on Archangel.

Whilst a vast majority of AGE concept is likely already pencilled in, there are always things that will change and new fun ideas that will only be hit upon whilst getting close to that episode. To give a direct example- which would you rather have? The clunky 1994 Master Gundam with barely any articulation or gimmicks or the 2011 HG with the cloak, Foonie and even a cloth wielding Master Asia? That's the kind of iconic nature I'd expect to see. Sometimes you need some breathing room to truley grasp what are the strengths of something.

To all honesty the closest I have ever been to a Gundam toy has been holding a standard Seed kit packaging a few years ago at a fair.

But I completely understand what you are talking about. Even I think its weird to pump out high priced collectors goods when the show is barely five episodes out the gate and the two upgrade variants hasn't even been featured beyond the toyline.

Even on a corporate trixter level that is a bit unsure since it will more than not seem like bulljive in hindsight. The "revive of original" or whatever that silly tagline was just reeks of it. Trying to sell your premium brand item based on your new IP with how close it is to the original just seems silly to me. It's not like hobby shelves will be out of original series Gundams any time soon.

I still don't feel I have enough MG's from 00.

I really think they should still be doing at least one or two new MG's from 00, and that they were a bit quick to basically abandon it completely (for now).

There have been some indications we might someday see a Reborns MG. However, the big issue now is that MGs just aren't profitable for a range of reasons and this is why they hit upon RGs. It's more economic for Bandai to make an involved 1/144 then an involved 1/100. It may also be part of the reason we're starting to see nostalgia products aimed at the 90s and 2000s fans.

Bandai is trying way too hard to make good on their goal of out-plamoing their 00 line...

We're going to get tons of kits of variants and recolors and stuff, even more than 00 had.

As far as I'm concerned, we don't have enough 00 variants.

We're still missing Marute-mode Harute and Full Armor Zabanya, a transformable Seravee II, Dynames Repair, the GNX-IVs, and heck, it'd even be nice to get the Hellions. I'm less excited for the Gagas, but for completion's sake...

We also haven't gotten a Trans-Am Qan[T] yet, which is kind of a hole in my collection...
