I have always wondered what the population of the individual Sides where in Gundam during the earlier UC timeline. Wasn't the Principality of Zeon at a MONSTROUS manpower disadvantage during the whole war? What was the population of the Axis?
each individual colony cylinder was like a large city and about 10 million people. Side 3(Zeon) had higher populations then others. Because they were the only closed types and more surface area for people.
Zeon killed a couple billion people during the first few months of the war.
>Wasn't the Principality of Zeon at a MONSTROUS manpower disadvantage during the whole war?
Yes. In the show it's completely obvious that they are going to lose once they are kicked off earth. They really have nothing except some super weapons to slow down Feddie forces.
I'm watching Goldorak (Grendizer in French) because I bought the DVD box earlier today, I'm watching episode 1 and what's Alcor's problem?
/m/on cheres, are there any decent gundam/mecha games for the PSP?
I'm currently trying to come up with a good pilot/plug suit design for something.
Post your favorite suit designs.
Best Clone Grunts=Suits that take influence from earlier series or have very similar role
Ehh, they went overboard and those were just shitty rehashes. I liked them better when they still had their own style despite a strong throwback to other designs.
OP Here, i agree that SDs BTS where more useful, though i still prefer UC Doms.
What does /m/ think about plots involving dimensional fuckery? Stuff like stargates, crossgates, dimensional quakes, dimensional slips, whatever Decade does, etc.
Greatest concept ever or cheap, effortless plot device?
I love "what if" alternate universes.
Specially because most of the time it translates into ZEPPELINS EVERYWHERE.
From Entermix Tomino interview:
1. I saw some criticism such as "Lack of explanation. Die, bald head." on 2ch. Considering those opinions, I'm doing re-work for better quality in BD/DVD. The show has fast tempo, so dubbing's balance or accuracy directly impacts the fun of show.
2. I'm aware that the amount of information wasn't digested enough. To be honest, I wanted to make this as a 4 cour, 1 year show. If I did, I could show detailed settings such as Photon Battery factory and faction relationships between insiders. But because...

Niggas it's happening.
How can Gundam's popularity be revived in the West now?
It really can't.
CN dropped the ball hard during the boom years and the novelty of Gundam has faded pretty hard since. Even if Wang were brought back for whatever reason, new viewers probably wouldn't be interested.
Then there's fucking Bandai which closed up shop here because we wouldn't pay overpriced JP prices for shit or buy a gorillion copies of Crossfire. Think Discotek can afford to license BD versions of Gundam series? Fuck no. Bandai could've given us some already though if they hadn't taken their ball and left.
Show 00 Gundam on an endless loop until people like it. It is basically the only Gundam series remaining that has any kind of mainstream appeal. I would like to believe that if Turn-A was dubbed it could find an audience, but that doesn't seem realistic given its lack of "badass" action.
So I just go this in from Rightstuf today. Expensive, but my love of UC Gundam knows little bounds.
Anyone interested in pics of the extras and mech files?
Fresh outta the box. About the size of a vinyl record.
Tanks thread. Post tanks, talk about tanks.
Give tanks a chance, they're mecha too.
Are hovertanks fine too. Finished reading Tank Lords a short while ago and inspired by that rediscovered Battlezone.
In this thread, tonnage counts.
Post silver /m/ things
Alright /m/, this isn't an "Opening/Ending" thread but,
which OP/ED has the best Phrase/line that you absolutely must sing?
YOU GET TO BURNING
JUST WILD BEAT COMMUNICATION!
toki wo koe sono namae wo mune ni kizamou JUST FOREVER!!!
When will i get my AU story where Zeon wins?
Probably when you stop being delusional genocidal mass-murdering space nazis who the spacenoids you claim to represent hate. with vastly inferior mobile suits.
I mean, your first mistake was making your iconic mobile suits look like nazi troopers. Doesn't make you look too heroic.
