What is the best designed Gundam, and why is it Heavy Arms?
Sorry bub Heavyarms isn't the best, Sandrock is
What makes sandrock unique, fucking nothin.
What makes sandrock's pilot special, fucking nothin.
"Ima kill myself like that cool guy"
"Are you tellin me to get out?"
First of all that's not the Zeta, Proto-ZZ or Exia. You didn't even post the right Heavyarms. Try to apply yourself next time.
>everyone trys to out edge heero
>everyone fuckin fails
Think you meant to type overrated design.
Only showed up for like an episode but it's one of my favorite designs still, definitely in the top 5 in zeta
The Mk 2 is superior in every way. Damn AEUG had to ruin it with that shitty paintjob.
>>gatling guns above pilot
>>literally has explosives stored in every single place on the robot
naw. this better.
You're incorrect, the best looking gundams are:
- Nu (any version, but I favor the mass-produced one with INCOMs)
- Deep Striker
- MK II
- X Divider
The best looking zeons are
- Zaku II
and then there's the Tallgeese
Deathscythe Hell TV of course.
>all that Grim Reaper classic image in its construction
>that detailed paintjob on the head liner
My fellow negroid brother.
I dunno man, having a death/grim reaper motiff with bat wings and a fucking beam scythe sounds pretty tryhard and chuuni to me.
That was somewhat balanced by having its pilot be the most level headed guy in the cast, well as level headed as one can be in the Wing universe, anyway.
Yeah its the fact its black, not that its whole motif isn't completely edgy. For fuck's sake it even uses a scythe, a weapon so impractical that it's entire purpose is to look edgy.
For better or worse, I'm pretty sure Red Frame is the best design to hit the franchise.
It's certainly not my favorite, no should it be anyone's favorite suit. But goddamn if it doesn't strike that nice chord between "realism" and full on super-robot.
I don't understand. Doesn't everyone know that the best Gundam is the Nu Gundam?
How can anything compete with such perfection?
just kidding most gundams in G sucked
I for one think G has the best designs in the franchise
To further my point, later UC series have anti beam coating and capes and other shit. Having a mix of ballistic/e plosives and beam seems ideal. Plus you can fire and forget missiles, and missile spam actually looks cool if Macross taught me anything.
The same thing that makes a beam saber better than a beam rifle at close range
Heat Weapons weigh a lot more than a beam saber when not in use, and even things that are beam resistant aren't beam proof and a beam saber is always going to cut deeper and better than a heat weapon.
There are more Gundam shows outside of the Universal Century, like 00 that actually uses vibro-weapons early but like heat weapons they're inferior to the cutting ability of a beam/GN weapon while offering no advantages
They took Amuro and split him up into five different people who all have one note personalities. Everybody is a super special snowflake. I don't like 00 either for the same reason.
They have superior cutting ability
>Cost efficiency and energy efficiency
That's hard to animate, besides in 00 there are GN Blades which are the best of both worlds its a physical blade with the cutting ability of a beam saber, or Cosmic Era's Anti-Ship Swords. Fuck even Wing has a Gundam that uses Heat Weapons almost exclusively
I'm pretty sure the zeitgeist here is that Wing was great when we were 13~ years old and it came out on CN. Then we all realized it was a pile of shit.
If you're still 13~ years old or close to it, it's acceptable to like Wing
Hating is cool. Makes you sound smart and cultured.
Who the fuck wants to be the one dumb faggot who likes a thing in a world where everything can be (and therefore is) objectively shit?
I like Gundam for the characters. The series has well written male and female characters with dynamic personalities. The Mecha's are second to me and I look at the Mechs as vehicles to tell the characters story, rather than the central focus of the show. It's the human element that attracts me to the franchise.
If I feel like the characters in a show aren't dynamic, I won't watch it.
Unless it's Build Fighters, which is just too fun not to watch. I also love camp.
Both actually, Sandrock uses Heat Shotels, with a mecha sized Uzi and missiles for ranged options for the Custom TV version, and Epyon has both a beam saber and a heat whip that get used equally
Well, when you put it that way, more generally about characters, yeah I can agree with that. One complaint I have about Wimg is that most characters are unlikable dickwads who don't act even close to human beings just so the show can use them as mouthpieces for its boring heavy-handed views or muh pacifism, muh honor, etc.
What I considered weird was how you said Amuro's character was split between the boy band, you don't see it everyday, and I don't really see it.
And it is par for the course in MC team shows that each member has a more general personality type to differentiate them between each other. Which Wing doesn't really execute well for that matter.
Not him, but I actually didn't mind Wing's characters at first. But the fact that most of them never developed past their stock stereotypes bothered me more and more to the point they became irritating, rather than interesting.
And no, I don't care about side material giving them development/backstories of questionable canonicity.
Very much unrelated to the topic at hand, but does someone have those "F Gundam" designs, which were the normal designs with x-acto knives or something stapled on the side?
I lost my collection of images a while and haven't found those things yet.
You have a funny way of spelling Deathscythe Hell Custom op.
>Liking anything involving Jesus Yamato
F91 is the best designed gundam. It is like having a F1 car.
Do you remember the part in Wing where quatre needs to buy time for the shuttle to launch into space, so he engages the ground forces there?
He is so fuckin cringe inducing every time.
Serpent is just a Leo with mad Armor Gains...
