Many of the changes seem minor, but they all add together to make it into quite a different kind of tea.

The most glaring one is that the Destiny and Legend are now implied to be using the same type of nuclear reactor as SF and IJ, instead of running out of power like geriatrics

They were always using H-DNRs even in the regular series. The "running out of power comment" was an oversight that got removed, like Mu's helmet. If I'm remembering my tech manuals right, the SF and IJ's reactors were based on the Destiny and Legend's.

And those tech manuals came out after the special editions IIRC

So the fact that Destiny and Legend had the same unlimited spam HDNR nuclear reactors as SF and IJ is a retcon from the original where SF and IJ were using nukes with NJC (like Freedom and Justice) while Destiny and Legend were merely using updated versions of the batteries in the Impulse

They can't have been using the same batteries as the Impulse. If they were, the Destiny would have just been recharged right then and there thanks to that deuterion beam. A battery wouldn't have been able to power the Destiny's wings even if it was an upgrade of the Impulse's. That and the Legend being an upgrade of the Providence tells me they were using the same reactor as the Providence at the very least. Even if they were retconned into have H-DNRs, the Destiny and Legend always had a nuclear reactor.

I agree, but I wouldn't say they were fixing "some of the batshit crazy stuff," as you put it. Most changes are simply visual improvements or changes that aren't really important to make. Also, it is likely that the condensed format has a factor in some of the changes.

While the original scene might imply that Destiny was not using a nuclear reactor, one explanation is that Destiny simply used more power than the nuclear reactor could resupply at that time. What was shown diminishing could be the power stored in some storage.

As such, this is again one of those examples where they didn't need to make the change or they simply cut it for the purpose of time. Remember, just because something is not in the SE does not automatically mean it's no longer official.

This is the first time I've heard of the Destiny and Legend being retconned into having the SF and IJ's reactors. I've always heard the SF and IJ having nuclear reactors and then being retconned into having the same kind of Hyper-Deuterion reactor that the Destiny and Legend are powered by.

Does anyone know when a certain track from Gundam Age was used? The track is Track 22 of the second volume of the OST, Wolf Tai, and I just can't remember when, or even if it was used.

Why is episode 15 of the original Mobile Suit Gundam not part of the DVD release?

That was because Tomino himself had requested it. Apparently, he felt that the animation was not as good as the rest of the series and the exclusion of that episode didn't really affect the storyline. The Japanese version still has it, though.

Episode 15 was one of those episodes that was quite standalone. It was a monster-of-the-week kind of episode, so u are not really missing anyway

@Nosferatu: The stuff from Kimitoshi Yamane?
You can find them here. + Some early concept designs and an interview with Okawara.

I just got word that 08th MS team will be re released on Blu-ray next year. So has anybody heard if it comes with English subs? Cause I don't want to waste money on it if it is RAW episodes.
