After Go Nagai passes away Mazinger will be just as dead as Getter
Mazinger has been dead since the 70s. Go Nagai never cared about it, it was just one of his most successful franchises. He likes Enma, Devilman and Guerilla High much more.
Shin Mazinger Zero is the closest thing to turning Mazinger into a continuity like Ishikawa did with Getter Robo and Nagai isn't even involved with it.
Well, I didn't start this thread, but this seems like a good enough space to set up camp.
If you've got Shin Getter 1 pics post 'em
They're horns, it's based on the devil.
need to keep the thread alive for a bit yet
>Get hype to read the manga
>Read the prologue, get hype as fuck at Goro's speech
>Haven't read it since friday
The dangers of being lazy. Also, Shin Getter vs. Neo Getter SRCs when?
It's not good for you to push your threads so hard, japanese mountain monkey
Oh wait, I just realized, that pic is blurry as fuck. Fuck it, so is this one.
Well, if you need a Shin Getter dump, I'd be happy to help.
LOOK UP THERE IN THE SKY
IT'S A BIRD
IT'S A PLANE
IT'S A FUCKING JOBBER
WHO WILL ALWAYS HOLD A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART SINS SvsN WAS ONE OF MY FIRST AND FAVORITE ROBOT ANIMES
Nice, I never would have noticed that one and I watched the intro countless times.
are there any clear shots of the side of Shin Getter 1's head? I'm having difficulty telling how far forward or back the horn tips are
Looking through my folder just now I realized I have no decent images of it's head or back that aren't fanart or a figure. Still, I hope it helps.
As far as I know, only the Fewture and jumbo sofubi versions. Of course those are fuck-off expensive by now.
Well, time to post the total progress for the night
ignore the nose, I've yet to squash that out of the way and I'm using the default head for scale
Not sure if I got too carried away with the chin yet.
Skinning will probably start tomorrow
Every little bit helps
Nice thing about these threads, is that the avid fans of each series usually have hard to find odds 'n ends that are usually hard to find and sometimes quite helpful
Plus, watching fans discuss stuff about their favorite series is usually good for my productivity. Something about the enthusiasm that seeps out of their posts is good for spurring me on.
Because Mazinkaiser also has an Aoshima version.
Aoshima made Chogokins of Dynamic Pro's late 90s/early 2000s OVA stuff. Not sure why didn't they just license Bandai to do it.
Just about any Mazinkaiser, really.
I'd like to pair the two with a Nu or Hi-Nu, and the MG Gundams are usually 7 or so inches, if I recall, so the closest bet is probably Aoshima and maybe SRC, huh?
I'm surprised that you haven't summoned that one spic that goes
>YOU'RE DRAWING CHIN-GETTER, NOT SHIN GETTER
>MANGA SHIN GETTER NO CHIN.
Boy, that guy was an annoying plague on getter threads.
The best (and easiest to execute currently) is to get SRC Shin Getter and Mazinkaiser, then put them alongside RD Hi-Nu or 1/144 HGUC Hi-Nu. They stand around 6~7 inches tall.
Aoshima's stuff wasn't that impressive, honestly.
Hey look, if I wanted to shitpost, i'll ask
>Is Getter robot a real robot or super robot?
>If I wanted to shitpost I'd be doing exactly what I'm doing now
We know. You can stop now.
Be wary; SRC Shin Getter goes for some serious rape prices on the aftermarket, and some of his joints are pretty wonky. Otherwise he's great, and Mazinkaiser has no real flaw aside from his hand cuffs.
Think he's talking about the color scheme. SvN's version uses the traditional red-white-yellow while the manga uses some shades of blue.
I like this shin getter design because it looks more like it's made from three ships than the other design.
Unfortunately that's the only Getter 2 I have that isn't part of a group shot. Unless you're also ok with tiny Getter 2's.
>no fat chicks in japan willing to cosplay musashi/benkei
>No buff dudes in Japan willing to do Ryoma justice
This. Poseidon is the only Getter G design I really like, more specifically the one piloted by Cohen (or was it Saotome?) in Armageddon. Too bad all it's toys are either sold out forever or scalper prices.
List your favorite Getters by type. Don't hate, appreciate.
One: classic Getter 1
Two: Shin Getter 2
Three: Getter Khan
>all that Shin Getter 2 love
It's truly the best, it is truly perfection. Just like
>One: Getter Go/Neo Getter 1
Two: Shin Getter 2 (Armageddon)/Neo Getter 2
Three: Shin Getter 3 (Armageddon)/Getter Gai
Ha, I was just about to post that. Well, better complete the set.
>Basically tears a man's face off
Well let's face it, none of the getter pilots are perfect, but pic related probably comes the closest.
May as well post a crap photo of my revoltech
Feel free to criticize the pose
>Just read the first chapter of the manga for the first time
>That fucking pterodactyl
>Instead of a chase it just swooces in and takes two of the comedy relief dudes to the pearly gates
>Apparently shit gets in faster in Go
Also, I really like how the artist draws background character, and how Saotome is always super-pissed.
Hey man, I wan't hating. Black Getter is rad.
Try to make it a bit more dynamic, that's the point of revos after all. Maybe have one foot out in front of the other so it looks like he's leaping?
That makes sense. He seems to have improved, those huge eyes on Ryoma are a little strange and not at all very fitting.
No hard feelings
Armageddon Ryoma and every Ryoma a handsome.
Hit the mark on everything, GOTYAY taste.
I think I see him for $70 on Ebay. Egh i'll figure something out.
Huh, really? I'm not too good at building unfortunately. I need to do all that sanding and repainting once I get them off the runners, don't I? Plus painting in extra details that would otherwise be missing.
Yo guys, I'm want to get into Getter Robo but not sure where to start. I've heard the Getter Robo Go manga is really good, as is Getter Robo Armageddon. What should I start with? Is there a chart or something you guys have to fill me in, looking on wikipedia about info on the series and what to watch first is confusing since it's been rebooted a few times.
70 is a pretty good deal, I spent about that much. Look into that the one he's selling, and if it looks good and not broken, I'd say go for it.
I've only just finished ch1 of the manga earlier today, but what I do know is that you should read them in order, so start with the first one. The books are direct continuations of each other aside from some spinoff stuff.
As for OVAs, you can start in any order, though I've heard you may wanna consider reading all of the manga before New Getter. I dropped at episode 1 for Shin Getter vs. Neo Getter, which is a fine entry into the franchise, though knowing about the importance of Getter rays helps.
There's also some anime you could look into, though I'm not sure how the subs are and Go is only vaguely related to the rest of the franchise.
I hope I could be of help, sorry for the blog stuff.
Egh nevermind. Backordered.
WELP I guess i'll have to shill out another $30-$40 for it.
Such is the life of a mecha addict.
God fucking dammit why is Shin Getter literally extremely sexy.
BEHOLD! shitty coloring
have to fiddle with the UVs a bit yet but that is mostly done
I will forever see Getter 1 as having a big green moustache
That's unfortunate, he's 99 bucks on amazon too. Maybe try Mandarake?
At least it's not the infinitely sexier SGvNG design you're missing out on.
Looks bretty gud. You planning on adding pupils?
Nothing wrong with like chin, but personally I hate the proportions. I mean look at this. The robot cannot even realistically turn its own head or ever look to the side. They always have to draw the head slightly crooked because its horns won't even fit between the hugely bloated shoulders. This shit is fat.
Will the chin be able to
fire GETTAH BEAMUs?
Ryoma's also in the head, behind that glass panel above the chin. Yeah yeah "so much for the laws of physics" but you see those panels crack and burst all the time in Armageddon.
Probably, its hard to nail that deadpan expression of mild annoyance that I see shin getter with half the time
only time will tell
Refer to >>12431279 or pic related. That's the BD cover for Armageddon.
Pupils need to have 1 or several spirals for it to look intimidating.
Also refer to Black Getter for angry mean eyes.
