I looked around online and to my surprise I found the Seed Destiny special editions still available. I was sure they were going to out of print but fortunately they weren't.

Apparently the RX-121 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel] appears in the third Zeta movie. Does anyone have a screencap of this?

i mean sure, seed astray is a sidestory afterall but it really doesnt have anything to do with the show^^
and by the way, it really is the MBF-P02 and not the MBF-M1 M1 Astray, the grunt type orb MS, i checked on that.


this image pops up right after the other still images of the duel, the buster, the blitz and the aegis. i think thats kinda odd because that also groups it together with the "bad guys" :P

this really bothered me back when i was a kid and first watched the show. i always liked the red frame but it never showed up in the actual show XD
Just a cameo, nothing more. ReHOME, the mothership of the Junk Guild, also appears in one of the later episodes briefly...

And of course, Kira's survival after Ep 30's battle with Athrun had to do with Lowe Gear helping him out. One of the few tie-ins between Seed and Astray.

Does anyone know what type of bazooka the Dreissen uses in Unicorn ep 3?

http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/a...0864163545.jpg

Was it used in a previous series?

I don't know what type of Bazooka it is and I don't remember seeing a Dreissen in ZZ use it.

MAHQ doesn't list the ZZ Dreissen using any hand held ranged weaponry. So it's something from the Unicorn series alone I'm betting.

Guess I'll have to wait for a translation of the kit release.

Alright. Here's a question for you Gundam fans out there.

Awhile back I found one seriously awesome Gundam mecha drawing on pixiv. I can't remember it's name for the life of me. From what I can remember, it had a similar model style to Neue Ziel, but sported terrestrial walking legs and a more standard head like the rest of the army. From what I recall, it's name may have started with a 'G'. It also had two shoulder shields on each shoulder.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I don't know if it's ever been explicitly said but I imagine the Federation destroyed the two halves so no one ever used it again.

could it be the NZ-666 Kshatriya or Quin Mantha?
I am assuming it is a Zeon MA.

So, check this out. A while ago, I watched an episode of The 08th MS Team on a random streaming site, don't remember which one. What I instantly noticed was that all the sound effects, were different. The mobile suit's footsteps, explosions, gun firing, etc all different. Music, and Japanese dubs were the same, but the sound effects were totally different.

Any idea why that is? Does changing the sound effects somehow go over the whole copyright issues?

You may have been watching Miller's Report?

They may have updated the sound effects with one of the re-releases of the series.

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And it’s also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

There's a 1995 stereo version and a 2006 5.1 surround sound version. The 2006 version has different and much louder sound effects than the 95 version. The English dub uses the 95 version. The 2006 version was on the remastered DVDs.

I started watching Gundam Unicorn last night, but fell asleep.
I've only watched Gundam 00 before, so do I have to watch or read anything before watching Unicorn? Or it's standalone story and everything will be explained later on because I understood nothing from first 20 minutes.

First of all, I see Unicorn as an epilogue to the story of Federation vs Zeon while bridging the gap for the late UC productions. To make that understandable to you, you're pretty much thrust into the end or the middle of the story, depending on how you look at it. You'll enjoy the fights, and many of the main UC stuff (like Newtypes and Psycoframes) are explained in the show, but you'll definitely want some background knowledge to fully understand and appreciate it, since there are some things which would be overlooked or not properly understood.

You'll probably want to watch; Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam 0083, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, ZZ Gundam and Char's Counterattack.

Edit: Although 0083 optional. It does give some background into Anaheim Electronics and is a pretty good show. The Char's Deleted Affair manga also adds some insight (in my opinion) but is not fully translated on the web yet.

To sum it up, if you're interested in watching it all but don't intend to watch the previous series, then go to Gundam Wiki or something similar.

The only one you really need to watch, contrary to JC...'s urging , is Char's Counterattack, and that's more for completeness than anything else. Unicorn does a pretty good job of explaining itself. Zeta Gundam is good for Audrey's background.
