Cannon Fodder (1/15)



  1. Nice. I'll have to keep an eye on this forum to find out when they come out. I wanted a VF25 after Frontier, but I'd like a VF31 more!
  2. Is this a transformable toy, like the old VF-1s (where wheels are contained in the nose and legs for when fighter mode), or is it a model kit you need to put together but can assemble in one of the 3 modes?
  3. At 52, long gone to wind. And my eldest daughter at 25 likely married, and starting to get a tad patchy in places.
  4. Well, all that matters is the end story. I can tolerate the knife version since they had limited resources for animation. I think the DYRL version has more snazz, and granted a bigger budget. One wonders what we might have seen had SDFM had the resources/budget of the movie for each episode, or even the resources and technology of Yamato 2199.
  5. BChoinski, on 05 May 2016 - 10:02, said: Actually they first met face to face going head to head on a tabletop video game. Which is the way all young lovers met in the 80s. It was totally awesome, dude. I am aware of that, but that is not the point their eyes and hearts locked on; it was after the knife fight (SDFM) and after the battle on the Meltrandi ship (DYRL).
  6. I meant retconned from original SDFM, given the final wedding scene there (which was not in DYRL). But yea, after DYRL the ears were in as a marker for Zentraedi blood. I do like that they went with the DYRL meeting instead of the Series one... falling for a one's match or equal is cooler with Mecha instead of that lame knife fight.
  7. So is the fuel in the tanks just there for the fusion engines, and perhaps for propellant we draw mass from SD space an expel it?
  8. Especially since it episode 5 it looks like they retconned in the ears on Milia; though the scene is a-la SDFM.
  9. Babylon 5 had a nod to this with the Starfuries -- the cockpit was at center of mass (more or less)
  10. That's also what I am wondering. Like in the Gulf War, our air power ruled the skies, but you need manpower to hold the ground. How much population can an effective ice planet support, and of that how much can go into troops? How can one planet control multiple planets of population? That said, I liked Hayate's Gerwalk dancing (well, given that the Gerwalk is my favorite form...). I really need to get a good VF-31 (not a model, the plastic and metal transforming figures, 1/60 or 1/72 scale like my old VF-1), and probably the Draken as well. Looks like it might be an expensive year.
  11. Perhaps they shunt the heat energy into superdimensional space? Overtechnology seems to involve transfer back and forth, possible to open a pinhole fold and dump the heat in some manner?
  12. I thought that was what he meant (in the subs) "return to branch" in the second episode, as the code word or name of their carrier.
  13. If we know the size of the Valks, can you use the ones on the deck as a measure? The deck looks longer than the quarter's from frontier, and hence the whole ship would be larger.
