Can we have a thread about shields? What's your favorite?
The shield and gun are thrown into the air and land on the body.
Striker Shield, hands down.
Silver Bullet's shield is pretty sweet too, I think.
Pretty partial to the Armed Armor DE, myself.
I like the gouf custom shield a lot, though i don't like how the model makes the gatling stick out too far.
The one in the actual OVA was better but I understand the limitations of hard plastic.
Jegan shields are cool
I also like the small pronged shields that the ez8 and sandrock use. >>12465119
That's actually a nice twist on the small shield with prongs I was talking about
Seed Destiny may have sucked but their shields were pretty good too.
BLitz had a cool shield, but having all its weapons on the inside of the shield is kinda a flaw.
My *least* favorite shield has to be the deployable ones from the wing universe, because it meant that even grunt-versus-grunt battles were one-sided plotarmor stomps unless the shielded dolls just forgot to deploy them at all.
Yes but it had to expose itself to fire and the off-hand was busy doing a whole lot of nothing most of the time, hell even its beamsword was usually used as a bayonet for the shield-gun.
We all know what the biggest shields in the average gundam show were however.
Nothing was quite as much of a bullet/beam sponge as these things.
i really like G-self shield
it's like souped up version of Strike's or any typical gundam red shield
it also has many abilities like absorb beam and vulcan guns and shoot mnovsky particles to jam opponent up
>If it's stupid and it works, it aint stupid.
Though seriously, for something that cobbled together that's actually a pretty good idea. Granted shields in UC vary from tissue paper to gundarium stronk depending on who's piloting and how interesting they want the fight to be.
Copy-Paste Shield is some shit
Like I said Seed Destiny may have sucked but these shields (And the rest of the suit when they didn't draw it super lazy) were bretty gud.
I don't really like round shields looks wise but the Gyan shield is pretty solid ability wise.
It's a shame I can't find any good pics, the assault-busters shield was awesome.
Le Cygne's snazzy looking tower shield.
>Not liking the Zaku's shoulder shield
It's a shield, a powerful beam cannon, AND it adds a few thrusters/verniers. Where does it go wrong? Absolutely nowhere. Best shield in gundam is right. I was really upset how it got very little screen time in X.
Eh... doesn't all that other stuff make it kind of dangerous to use it as a shield? If it's broken the Divider is basically crippled.
Oh, well, I wish the DX got the Divider shield as equipment in SRW though, since he uses it against the Rasveyt.
Surprise, people don't like old and busted useless shields.
I was going to post this and the original Gundam X's Shield Buster Rifle. Mah nigra.
MG X Divider when
Gyan Custom has my favorite shield from the Gyan family. Has more of a star shape, but retains that buckler style in the center.
Best defence is attack.
