  1. It almost looks like they are building it based on this monstrosity.

    That's only because they are tracing, badly, photos of models.

    So, did they shrink the Invid or can Karl Riber change size now? Also, given that Max and Myria know each other already her infiltration really can't happen, and that he knows it is her running amok inside the SDF-1 (quoting Rorschach no less) him getting involved with her later gets far more complicated, like he's a traitor complicated.

    I always loved the Jovian Chronicles mechanical designs, just the right mix of hard and soft sci-fi tech. Insert other media.url
  5. Yikes that HT is just horrible. What references were they working off of? Please tell me that that is a proof of concept design and will be highly refined and slimmed down.

    The obviousness of the tracing is so evident here, as the overlayed bits (uniforms) look completely out of place and underdetailed in comparison.

    The artwork is a definite step up, but how are there skyscrapers inside the SDF-1? The itself was enough of a stretch.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    See that's where my concept works great. You issue an RFP for the various platforms with the stipulation that they all use the same core hardware: Engines, Avionics, Radars (with a larger or smaller antennae array) etc... Now you have a fighting force that can use all the same weapons, and support hardware for the expensive bits. Carrier for instance only need to carry one kind of engine onboard, plus or minus afterburners, and there is no question of weapons cross-compatibility. The Air Force actually used this same argument back in the late 70s for the F-15, F-16, B-1 force. They all used the same engines, radars based on the same core architecture, and Link 16 for connectivity, but they were all built by different contractors.

    Bumblebee (Transformers... 6?)

    Bay's Argument was always flawed, that video and the new Bumblebee move proves that. Tying TF into human history, sorry, no thanks. I would rather see see all thing Bayformers go away. As fir Powerglide's transformation, you have a lot of mass coming out of nowhere there, the A-10 is simply too "skinny" to fit all those bits. You'd have to double the fuselage width in order to make it work. That being said, it is probably the best/most "realistic" Powerglide transformation I've ever seen.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I have said for years that the JSF/F-35 never should have been a production aircraft. It should have remained a technology testbed and demonstrator from which multiple aircraft could be designed and built using a common logistics footprint. The most expensive parts of any combat aircraft are the internal systems, structures are relatively cheap by comparison, but if you have multiple fighter/attack platforms using the same engines, radars, sensor suites Flight Control Computers (albeit with tweaked software) and weapons interfaces, then you have made massive savings. Imagine in you will: F-35: Air Force, single engine similar to the primary POS we have out there (Lockheed) F/A-32: Refined Naval version of the X-32 as a Hornet/A-7 replacement (Boeing) AV-33: brand new strike craft for the marines/Royal Navy (BAE/Boeing) F-34: twin engine naval interceptor based on the F-23 Christmas Fighter proposal (North-Grumm) A-36: twin engine (non-afterburning) A-10 replacement, with possible naval variant (Contractor TBD) F-37: twin engine Gen5.5 Air Force Interceptor/Forward Combat Drone Controller (Lockheed) B-21: four engine (non-afterburning) stealth bomber (North-Grumm) All of them share the same basic engines and radars with some having large phased array antennae as well largely same internal systems, down to the actuators. Supply train problems all but solved and you have seven different platforms farmed out across multiple contractors, all turning out purpose built aircraft.
  11. The 80s GI Joe comics were, and still are, awesome. The rebooted comics I could never really get behind, and I was OK with the IDW continuation but just haven't had a chance to read in a while. While I am sad to see the toyline finally utter its last gasps, it was inevitable with the current political climate. Though if my dream of Kelly-Mattis 2020 ticket comes true then GI Joe could have a huge resurgence.

    Looks like fun, I will see it
