As I said before, I'm running GBFQ today because I might not be able to on Friday. It'll most likely end up being a short thread, but at least we'll have something!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=gundam+build+fighters+questOther Quests:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20Quest (complete)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Pararescue%20Witches (Hiatus)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com /archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Hunter%20Quest (Complete)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Cyberpunk%20Idol%20Management%20Quest (Running)Characters and Gunpla: http://pastebin.com/tNr0mtYHYou are JACK FOULKE, an amateur Gunpla Fighter with dreams to make your own mark on the Gunpla battle scene!You are currently sitting in the back of Mason's van with your estranged, one time childhood friend, Charlotte. The rest of your friends seem to be distracted talking among themselves, which leaves you with a bit of privacy with Charlotte. At least for the moment.The problem was figuring out what to say. How do you start a conversation with a girl you've only met once in a decade?>You uh, look good.>So... you have a Kampfer now?>I hope you didn't forget about that rematch.>Other
>>32297224>So... you have a Kampfer now?Talk about Gunpla, girls like that right?
>>32297224>I hope you didn't forget about that rematch.
>>32297224>I hope you didn't forget about that rematchI still use the GM, and I added the Juggler system
Rolled 4 + 10>>32297224>So... you have a Kampfer now?
>>32297224>So... you have a Kampfer now?"Any others you use?"
>>32297224>>I hope you didn't forget about that rematch.
>>32297224>Other>So beyond going Pro, how's life been treating you?I rather start off with something that isn't Gunpla but if I can't get that....>So... you have a Kampfer now?Might ask about that. Or any others she might use.
>>32297224>>So... you have a Kampfer now?>>I hope you didn't forget about that rematch.There needs to be some spaghetti at some point.
>>32297224>So... you have a Kampfer now?Seems like a good starting point.
>>32297454No awkwardness, please.
>>32297471Thinking about and remebering someone for the better part of a decade then finally coming face to face.I'd be surprised if jack isnt nervous at all.
>>32297523Why would he, he has other friends, and it was just a person he met as his first match, I consider his competitive spirit more then awkwardness
>>32297523Honestly, it seemed like he moved on until that ESPN highlight.
>>32297224>>How ya doing!? I missed ya!>>I hope you didn't forget about that rematch
>>32297565That was mostly due to the player choice then anything.
>>32297224"So... I see you've started using a Kampfer now." You say."Oh, yeah, I guess that's starting to become common knowledge, huh?" Charlotte chuckles. "Wanna see it?""Sure!" You grin. "Uh, you can see what's left of my GM Juggler. It's still the same GM you fought against."Yeah, you never did have the chance to actually fix it after the 3v3 finals, so It was still in a pretty mangled state. "I can see that!" Charlotte's eyes almost glitter at the sight. "I can tell just by looking you've put a lot of love into it. You even added a Juggler system!""Yeah. It was sorta my sister Holly's idea. She really loves Balls."Charlotte blinks and begins to speak before you cut her off."Believe me, I have heard literally EVERY Ball joke there is, and I've beaten people to a pulp over it at times. Please... just don't." You sigh."Noted." Charlotte nods. You then take the chance to examine Charlotte's Kampfer. It was masterfully built, with a bit of wear and tear due to the recent battling. However, you see that it's also quite similar to the Kampfer Amazing you saw the Meijin using a couple years ago. "You trying to become the next Meijin?" You grin."Oh please, I always did have a soft spot for the Kampfer. Fast and deadly. Just how I like it." Charlotte says. "Kampfer Espada has never failed me yet. The only thing I took from the Amazing was the weapon binder system, but even that I had to scratch build since they refuse to release the specs publicly.""That's cool." You nod, turning the Kampfer Espada over in your hands. "So what kind of weapons is it backing?""That's classified information~." Charlotte puts a finger to her lips. "A fighter can't give away all her secrets, you know!""True." You laugh. >Keep talking about Gunpla.>Address the elephant in the backseat.>Other
I just realized that we now have a legitimate reason to have our asymmetrical paint scheme. Mac blew our left arm off and we rolled a Crit Hit on the Tusker.
>>32297709>>Keep talking about Gunpla.
>>32297709>Keep talking about Gunpla.No need to make it awkward when we've just been reunited.
>>32297709>Keep talking about Gunpla.
>>32297732Sounds a lot like a certain Ace Pilot.
>>32297709>Keep talking about Gunpla.Keep it light, keep fun.In other news the Panther in WT:Ground Forces is baller as fuck.
>>32297825I'm still using the Panzer 38(t), and I enjoy using it better then the 20mm auto cannon from the Panzer II
>>32297709>Keep talking about Gunpla.I am super curious about what happened after that battle we had
>>32297825>>32297859Arcade, Realistic, or Simulator?
>>32297859I passed on it and most of the PzIV line (outside the F2) and crashed right into the Panther and Tiger. The Panther is made of love. Though pic needs to stop happening.>>32297889A bit of AB but mostly SB.
>>32297709>Other"So, are you just in town temporarily or do you live in the area again?"
>>32297928Right this is a good one too
>>32297889Arcade, I'm not very good in Realistic or Simulator.>>32297905I try to get everything/max everything.
>>32297928>>32297956Agreed. Maybe numbers to text or something, eh?>>32297959I'll probably go back and max them out. But right now all about getting more Panthers and the King.
>>32297709"So... are you actually going to go pro?" You ask. "Try for a spot in the World Tournament?""I'm thinking about it." Charlotte shrugs. "The thing is, for something like that, I'd need parental consent to join, and my parents... well...""Let me guess. They think Gunpla is for kids.""Bingo."God you really hated people who thought like that. "Jeez, that would really suck if you couldn't get in because of a reason like that." You shake your head."I'm sure I can find a way to twist their arms into doing it." Charlotte chuckles. "You don't get a lot of chances to go to the World Tournament, you know?""Yeah, I understand.""What about you, then?" Charlotte looks you in the eye. "Do you have sights on the WT as well?">Hell yes I do.>Nah, I'd rather stick to casual play.>Other
>>32297928Hope shes back. Then we can ask if she'll stop by the shop again.
>>32298015>>Hell yes I do.
>>32298015>Other"If I get the chance I love to take it. But otherwise I'm like just playing with friends and showing people a good time in battles."A bit of both I guess?
>>32298015>>Hell yes I do.But i rather fight for your love.
>>32298015> I plan to but I have other things to focus on. *Tell her about the Gunpla club*
>>32298015>>32298041>>32298054This. I vote for both of there
>>32298015>Other"I'd like to try someday. Right now, though, I've gotten roped into a quest to restore the honor of Gunpla Battle at my school. It's about as anime as it sounds. Fun, though. The reason our group was at the tournament today was to build resources for it."
>>32298015>Nah, I'd rather stick to casual play.I really don't see Jack pushing hard for WT spot. If the option to get in is there. I'm sure he take it but to aim for and push for it? Not really.So I guess like >>32298041 Really.
>>32298015>>32298041>>32298054Both we have more important things that are our on mind also Char did not paint a fun picture of the pro leagues
>>32298200For now, I guess but its a goal to work towards.I mean someone like Jack would jump at the chance to fight at the world stage.
>>32298223Maybe, but the most important thing is to have fun. The Pro leagues from what Char said is not fun.
>>32298223I think we would jump at for the experience more than anything else. Not really looking to win it all (of course we'll try) but if we lose halfway there I don't see as being a huge let down or shock to ourselves. We got a chance to stand on the World Stage and we better have taken it all in.
>>32298015"Well, it'd be cool to get into the WT and all, but I'm mostly in it for the fun. Plus, I gotta help out my Gunpla team. School drama and all.""Ah, I see." Charlotte says, her voice tinged with a hint of dejection."You know." Karen then turns around in her seat to face you. "Since our school is a register Gunpla Battle School, the top ranked students have a chance to get sent to the World Tournament as special entries."Jesus, did she hear everything?"Well, I guess that's something we can work towards, too." You say."So, hey, this is the same Charlotte you told us about, right?" Mac turns in his seat as well."I'd like to know that, too." Lucina adds in.Oh god, now it was beginning. "...yes." You say."Cool!" Mac grins. "You wouldn't believe how much he emoed over you disappearing! He'd cry in his room, write edgy poetry, the works!""R-really?" Charlotte blinks."No. Don't listen to Mac. He is a liar and a bad person in general." You grunt."It's nice to meet you." Lucina holds out her hand for Charlotte to shake. "I really look forward to battling you someday.""What's your Gunpla?" Charlotte asks."An Exia.""Ooooooh." Charlotte grins.The rest of the drive is spent with everybody sharing details of their Gunpla with one another. From what you managed to glean from Charlotte, her Kampfer Espada was armed to the teeth, and even had a couple "trump cards" that she wouldn't elaborate on. However, the reunion had to end sometime, and the van finally pulls to a stop."Alright, this is the last stop for our little lady here." Mason says.You all look out the window and your jaws all collectively drop. (cont)
>>32298567Charlotte lived in a freaking honest to god MANSION."Yeah..." Charlotte smiles somewhat awkwardly. "This is, uh, my house. Thanks for the ride, by the way!"Charlotte unbuckles her seat belt and is about to get up when she pauses. "Hey, can I see your phone for a second?""Yeah, sure." You hand it to her. Charlotte hits a few buttons and hands it back to you."There! Now you've got my cell number. Call me anytime for that rematch, or if you just want to hang out, or something.""Thanks." You smile.With that, Charlotte disembarks from the van and gives you one final wave before beginning the long trek up to the front door of the mansion. The van rumbles as Mason turns on the engine again, and you continue your journey home.>Ask Karen more about the "special entry" requirements.>Take a nap. It's been a long day.>Other
>>32298593>Take a nap. It's been a long day.Oh fuck everything. WAIT! What happen to the food?!
>>32298593>>Ask Karen more about the "special entry" requirements.
>>32298593 >>Ask Karen more about the "special entry" requirements.
>>32298593>>Take a nap. It's been a long day.
>>32298567>"No. Don't listen to Mac. He is a liar and a bad person in general." You grunt.Poor Mac.>>32298593I don't care! Nap is good but so is questions!
>>32298593>>Ask Karen more about the "special entry" requirements.WT HERE WE COME
>>32298593>Ask Karen more about the "special entry" requirements.>Other"And I guess the quality of a World Tourney player from our school pretty much boils down to who has the most hax for their Gunpla? That's really depressing."
>>32298593>Take a nap. It's been a long day.Just how fucking rich is her parents? What do they do?
>>32298675Supporting this. Now we have double (possibly triple, depending on our feelings for Char) motivation to take the club down.
Which GBF would you waifu1) Lucina2) Karen3) Charlotte4) Amy
>>32298827We need more development for a decision to be made.
>>322988275) ExiaThis is the only proper answer when concerning Gundam waifus.
>>322988275) MUH BALLZ
>>32298827I'm a Lucina fan, I find her lack of Gundam knowledge adorable and I can relate
>>32298827Char.Because she is a CHAR
>>32298827>>32298843The best answer.>>32298852>>32298861You people on the other hand.
>>32298827X) Ramba Ral
>>322988275) Garma's Hair.
>>32298827Mac and JakeThis is now Gundam BRO Fighters Quest.
>>32298924You mean Gundam Boy Friends
>>32298924I hope Jake isn't feeling too bad that we ammo racked him.
>>32298593"So Karen," You say, narrowing your eyes. "Can you tell me more about this 'special entry' stuff?""Oh, I thought It was common knowledge." Karen blinks. "Well, during the WT qualifier rounds, our school runs its own mini tournament. The top four teams each select a single fighter, and they're put through two elimination rounds. The fighter that comes out on top then receives a ticket grating them special entry into the World Tournament, which they can use themselves or give to somebody else, though it's restricted to anybody on their own team or one of the other three finalists.""That's it?" You say. "Sounds pretty simple.""Yes, well, the thing is that if we want a shot at it, we have to reach the top four before the qualifiers officially begin, which is in about a month or two.""So we don't have a lot of time then." You frown."It's certainly a lot of pressure." Karen nods. "I would understand if you wouldn't want to go for it.">We can totally do it.>Yeah, I think we should pass on that.>Other
>>32298957>>We can totally do it.We have nothing to lose.
>>32298957>>We can totally do it.
>>32298957>>OtherWhat do you guys think? We can totally do it!
>>32298957>We can totally do it.Even getting our club up to the top 4 in that time will be a real achievement.
>>32298957>>We can totally do it.To stand on the same stage as char
>>32298957>OtherThe 4th spot can be taken within that time frame.It's being competitive with the top spot that's gonna be a problem.
>>32298957>Yeah, I think we should pass on that.>Other>We can try for it, sure. But we got our plans we need to take care of first before thinking of WT stuff.
>>32298957>>OtherWe can give it a shot, we're aiming for the top in the school anyway
>>32298957>Other"Well, it's worth a try. We'll see how things go. We're technically rank 12 already, so we're advancing pretty nicely. We shouldn't feel any pressure to get it done in the limited time, though. Oh, hey, that reminds me: Who at the school do we have to talk to about the victory against Thunderbolt?"
>>32298936I wish but I'm not sure Lewdfag will make lewd fic of this quest mostly due to the potential for innuendos of balls, discharging bream rifle, and etc
>>32299044>>32299019>>32298957I'll throw my support for these. We did just get done saying we were playing for fun and what not. It would seem odd, at least to me, to all gun ho for WT after that.
>>32298957 >>We can totally do it.
>>32298957>>32299004>>32299019>>32299044>>32299075This, Let's not force ourselves too fast, let's have fun
>>32299075I'm seeing it as a challenge. His blood is up.
>>32299118But we should take it easy, Let's not force ourselves too much.
>>32299148One doesn't improve by taking it easy.Even Sei spent almost a week in isolation to produce the SBS.
>>32299118And pushing hard to what end? We just started the team up and still need to improve not just our unit but everyone else as well. I really don't have the resources to full throw at this. Trying sure but the whole 'WE TOTALLY NEED TO DO' is something we don't need.
>>32299180>don't think weWords, tonks, stop, please.
>>32299172Refer to this>>32299180Anon makes sense
>>32298957"Hey, sounds like it could be a fun challenge." You grin. "Plus, we already got headstart from whupping Behemoth, right?""Assuming the school is willing to consider that win." Karen shrugs."Well, I'm sure you'll find a way." You grin."W-well of course."About halfway back to the store, Mason pulls up to an In-n-Out, which, thankfully, wasn't TOO crowded. Considering the win, he pays for all the food, so you all take a seat with your burgers and fries and begin digging in. >Talk to Holly about her battling experience.>Talk to Amy about her unconventional launching tactic.>Talk to Lucina and Mac about their matches.>Apologize to Jake for totally wrecking TUSKER.>Other
>>32299237>>Apologize to Jake for totally wrecking TUSKER.

>>32299237>Apologize to Jake for totally wrecking TUSKER.Let's start with that. Move on to other topics as it goes.
>>32299237>>Apologize to Jake for totally wrecking TUSKER.IM SO SOWWY!
>>32299237>>Talk to Holly about her battling experience.>>Talk to Lucina and Mac about their matches.
>>32299266>>32299268>>32299271I thought we already said sorry to him after the match.From experience repeatedly saying sorry only rubs salt on the wound
>>32299237>>Talk to Holly about her battling experience.
>>32299237>>Apologize to Jake for totally wrecking TUSKER.I know how you feel, ammo racks are a bitch when they go off.
>>32299237>Talk to Holly about her battling experience.I mean, we did wreck the Tusker, but that happens a lot in Gunpla battles.
>>32299295It was that bad.It one of those moments that you go 'oh fuck.' Plus, I want to offer help. Maybe improve the ammo rack in some way... Redirect the blast or something.
Oh yeah, I forgot to ask:When the hell was Amuro Ray Canadian?
>>32299295Did we? If so, I'll change mine. I just don't remember.
>>32299329C.A.S.E. modules.To eject unspent ammo incase of cooking off.
>>32299295We did. We can offer to help him rebuild it, though. We haven't had much interaction with Jake yet, it could be good bonding.My personal vote, however is for:>Talk to Lucina and Mac about their matches.Let's ask about the fights their team had. We saw them curbstomp those AGEs, and of course there was the fight against us, but what was their first fight? Something as entertaining as the Three Amigos?
>>32299353We did, he said it's not that bad and can rebuild it
>>32299237>OtherArrange a free day for shopping, repairs and upgrades.Everyone's Gunpla got banged up real good, so Jack should equally be concerned about the Gunpla of the entire club.
>>32299237>Talk to Lucina and Mac about their matches.Catch up with friends, we only did see the second fight. How did the first one go beyond 'win'
>>32299347He always was. He was born in Prince Rupert, according to official sources. He spent his childhood in the American South-West, though.
>>32299237>>Talk to Lucina and Mac about their matches.
>>32299363I wonder if we can't kit bash something like that if a CASE equivalent doesn't exist in the gundamverse. CASE II would be pretty nice, too.
>>32299375In that case I'll change mine: >>32299268to >Talk to Lucina and Mac about their matches.
>>32299445it actually does. There have been mobile suits that eject vulcan ammo.
>>32299237"So hey, uh, Jake, sorry again for completely wrecking TUSKER." You say apologetically."Ah, don't worry, it happens." Jake shrugs as he chews on a french fry. "Stuff like that happens all the time, especially with a suit that packs as much firepower as mine does. Besides, the prize points should more than make up for repairs, and then some.""Yeah, I just wanted to let you know I wasn't trying to damage TUSKER more than I needed to.""Yeah, I know. But then again, battles wouldn't be as exciting if our Gunpla wasn't on the line, right?""You got a point." You nod. "Hey, Lucina, Mac, I saw your second match, but how did you first match go?""We fought a trio of Gundam Roses that fancied themselves the Three Musketeers." Mac chuckles. "They were actually a lot tougher than we gave them credit for. The leader actually gave Lucina a run for her money!""I'm used to countering slashing attacks. Having to guard against an opponent that completely relies on thrusts was something of a learning experience." Lucina admits. "They also had anti-beam coated tabards, which meant I couldn't really use my beam sabers or GN pistol against them, so I had to rely wholly on my GN Blade to do the job.""You know, funny thing. We faced off against three Tequila Gundams modeled after the Three Amigos." You laugh."Weird." Mac chuckles. "Maybe those guys were related?""Who knows." You shrug. "How did you and Jake fare?""Ah, well, I proved that Colts were superior to flintlocks.""And I proved that armored or anti-beam coated or not, a direct hit from dual 180mm armor piercing shells will pretty much wreck anything." Jake says simply. As expected.(cont)
>>32299708Finally, you all finish up your food and return to the van. The rest of the trip back to the store is rather quiet and uneventful, up until you exit the van one final time. "Okay, see you guys at school!" Amy says cheerfully as she waves farewell."Yeah, see you." You wave back as Amy and Jake depart."Until next time." Karen bows her head politely to you before going off her own way as well."I actually gotta stay back at the store and help Mason handle some stuff." Mac says. You guys should go on ahead without me.">Stay at the store with Mac>Go home with Lucina>Other
>>32299708Were we the only people who didn't go for a theme? Weird.
>>32299725>Go home with LucinaWe've got to get Holly home, our parents will kill us if we stay out too late.
>>32299725>Go home with LucinaAlrighty~
>>32299725>>Go home with Lucina
>>32299725>our parents will kill us if we stay out too late.I don't know about this part.But we should make sure the little brat gets home safely.>>32299725>Go home with Lucina
Wait, how old are we again? I don't think Lewdbro can do any lewd if we're underage.
>>32299842He did it with President and Rochelle and they were 16-17
>>32299842Sure he can.It just has to be awkward first timer stuff.Or do what he did there >>32299860
>>32299860What was the age of consent again?
>>32299882Depends on where you live.
>>32299882I thought it was around 16-18
>>3229988218 in America, It can REALLY vary.For example, in Japan, it's fucking 13! (Way too young in my opinion)
>>32299940their is not set age of consent in the US hell in PA it is 16 the only state I can think of that it is 18 is Cal but it is the worst state
>>32299940Technically, the only national standard is 18 for porn and such.
>>32299725"Yeah, I think I'll go him with Lucina." You say."Of course you will." Mac snorts and rolls his eyes. "Have a good one, man.""Yeah, I'll see you later then." You grin as you tap knuckles with him. As always, you and Lucina walk home together, since you both live in the same direction. Holly tags along as well, because, well, she's your sister and you live together, too. "You know, Jack, I might consider signing up for the 1v1 in the next tournament." Lucina muses. "Seems like I can meet a lot of strong opponents there.""What, you don't like team battles?" You raise an eyebrow."Well, not exactly, it's just... team battles have a lot of extra concerns." Lucina shrugs. "Like what happened in our finals match. It's very easy for a fighter to get ganged up on, and that sort of fighting is just not very fun. At least not for me.""Makes sense. Some people prefer it that way." You nod and turn to Holly. "What about you, Holly? You going to keep doing tournaments?""Maybe." Holly nods. "But I think I'm more content on just building more Balls. But I did learn a lot so I know what to do with my next battle Ball!""Good for you!" You smile as you ruffle Holly's hair.>Head inside with Holly.>Go to Lucina's house. You got Gundam series to catch up on!>Other
>>32300018>>Go to Lucina's house. You got Gundam series to catch up on!
>>32300018>Head inside with Holly.Let's not just invite ourselves over to Lucina's. Kind of tacky.
>>32300018>>Go to Lucina's house. You got Gundam series to catch up on!Gundamuuuu
>>32300018>Head inside with Holly.
>>32300018>Head inside with Holly.Maybe some other time. Its been a long day.
>>32300018>Go to Lucina's house. You got Gundam series to catch up on!
>>32300018>>Go to Lucina's house. You got Gundam series to catch up on!I think there are some gundam series where one gundam faced superior numbers. At least we can show her from other gundam series that had episodes that dealt with that.
>>32300018>>Head inside with Holly.Eh, lets don't go too fast.But offer her to watch some gundam series sometimes.
>>32300072All of them? I can't think of a single full-length series where that doesn't happen.
>>32300018>>Go to Lucina's house. You got Gundam series to catch up on!Sleep over?
>>32300018>>Head inside with Holly.
>>32300090Well my memory is shitty so forgive me if it's not but I didn't mean one vs three but a small group vs a large army.
>>32300128No, that's definitely the case. Gundams dominate the battlefield. Especially the current era. SEED, 00, AGE, Unicorn...one mecha armies, those. The old shows at least had the decency for the protagonist to only destroy a dozen or so enemy mobile suits on their own. These days? That's a warmup.
>>32300090I don't think 08th MS had any fights where they were HUGELY outnumber, at least from what I recall from my shitty memory. But does 08th MS count as a 'gundam' ... ?
>>32300166>>323000908th MS TeamHow about that time against the Ace in the Gouf?
>>32300166Which is why I excluded OVAs. The Ground-types are Gundams, though. Just made out of spare RX-78 and GM parts.
>>3230016608th usually had fairly even numbers. Sometimes the enemy would actually be outnumbered by them, like in the famous Norris Packard fight scene. Who would think that one man in a slightly customized Gouf could cause so much damage? No Zaku, indeed.
>>3230015000 first season at least show us that sheer number can overwhelm gundam.
>>32300193They're "Gundams" that have worse performance than the mass production version, though. They were overly ambitious designs. That's why the EZ-8 had such high performance compared to the rest, because it didn't try to be fancy.
>>32300166The Ground Gundams were inferior performance-wise to GMs.The EZ-8 is a Ground Gundam kitbashed with spare parts from other machines, which actually improves its performance- plus it's not considered a Gundam at all.
Just remembered that there was a Gunpla for the damaged Exia from the first episode of S2.Does that mean one could use that in a fight?
>>32300271Sure, if you want to use a Gunpla with one arm.
>>32298889I'm pretty sure this is ALWAYS the answer to 'who would you waifu"
>>32300235>EZ-8I can't help but read that and think of this instead.
>>32300311I know what you mean, and they were both upgrades too.
>>32300271Oh, yeah. Logically it should actually do better than a regular Gunpla, since showing battle damage is a good way to express craftsmanship. And that's what really determines your Gunpla's strength. In fact, that actually happen in the finale of Build Fighters. Yuki doesn't have time to do a proper repair of Amazing Exia, so he converts it into an Exia Repair model. And it kicks ass.
>>32300311You're supposed to. The reference is intentional. Gundam likes to sneak in puns about the names of the mobile suits.
>>32300311...nobody even try using tank model for gunpla fight? Maybe not in legal tourney, but just for lulz maybe?Or at least feddies Type 61?
>>32300341Do they? Man I need to pay attention more.
>>32300352Plavsky particles only animate a special kind of plastic.
>>32300352No reason you couldn't, I suppose. Maybe Jake can upgrade to the Hildolfr TUSKER for his mid-series power up.
>>32300352That be like the one guy who playing BattleTech and doesn't use any Mechs. It works but it's so cheesy to watch unfold.
>>32300363Yeah. They tend to be pretty obscure, and of course most of them are in Japanese, so they're actually really easy to miss. Like, "Zaku" is actually a pun on the idiomatic word "zako", which refers to weak military forces suitable only for cannon fodder. It's also the onomatopoeia of soldiers marching in formation, oddly enough. I wonder what that implies about Japanese military culture?
>>32300018"You go on ahead, Holly, I think I'm gonna stay over at Lucina's tonight." You say."Ooooooh, again?" Holly's eyes flash. "Are you gonna-""No." You say, flicking your sister in the forehead. "It's nothing like that. Tell Mom and Dad for me, okay?""How do you know that they'll-""Because Mom and Dad look for any excuse to get me out of the house. Double points if it's with a girl." You grunt. "Plus it's a weekend. They don't really have reason to say no.""Fiiiiiiine. I'll go tell them." Holly pouts. "Thanks.""Sleeping over again?" Lucina tilts her head slightly."Yeah. Is that a problem?""No, not at all." Lucina shakes her head. "What were planning?""I'm finally gonna get you to watch some damn Gundam already." You say, pulling out your flash drive with almost every Gundam series stored in it. "Ah...""We got all Saturday night to do this." You say."Well, I did agree to it." Lucina concedes. "Let's go."The two of you then walk back to Lucina's home. It's not really that much different from yours. Not a huge mansion like Charlotte's, but it was nice and cozy. And rather quiet, too. Lucina was an only child so she didn't have any siblings to pester you. Lucina's mother was usually at home, but she wasn't very talkative, and honestly, she scared the living shits out of you. You're not sure why, but it was just the way she seemed to carry herself. Lucina's father was hardly home, either. From what you understand, he was in the Army and was currently deployed."Ah, Lucina, you're home." Lucina's mom states simply. Her eyes then dart over to you. "Jack.""Um, hi Lucina's Mom." You say nervously. "Well, you know the rules here already, so I don't need to tell you." Lucina's Mom then disappears behind a door, thought to you it looked like she was melding back into the shadows from whence she came.(cont)
>>32300448You really gotta ask Lucina why her mom was like that one of these days.The two of you then head up to Lucina's room. Unlike Holly's, which was pretty girly, Lucina's room was pretty plain. Actually, it reminded you more of your own room than anything, with some furniture, a computer ,and Gunpla modeling tools lying around. Lucina lets you shower first. After spending time inside a cramped building with hundreds of other gunpla fighters, you're pretty sure the both of you pinked up quite a stench. You quickly clean yourself up and get dressed in a spare set of clothes you brought with you, and you were done in like 5 minutes. You never really did like using the bathroom in other people's homes. You always felt guilty doing it for some reason."Okay, your turn, Lucina." You say as you walk out.As disciplined and straightforward she was, Lucina was still a girl, and you knew she'd take at least half an hour inside the bathroom, so you try to decide what series to start her off on.>Mobile Suit Gundam. The original.>Gundam 00. Matches her gunpla.>Other
>>32300460>>Gundam 00. Matches her gunpla.If we get to S2, show her what Lockon does.
>>32300460>Gundam 00. Matches her gunpla.
>>32300460>Mobile Suit Gundam. The original.
>>32300460>Gundam 00. Matches her gunpla.Also more likely to keep her interest, we can show her the original afterwards.
>>32300460>OtherReconguista in G. Build Fighters is set in the future, we can show her a Gundam series that isn't even out yet.
>>32300460>>Gundam 00. Matches her gunpla.Let's start her off with her gundam to get ideas
>>32300515What if it turns out to be really awful and she's so put off by it she drops Gunpla?
>>32300541Seeing how it isn't out yet, we can pretend it's as awesome or lame as we want it to be. And I choose to believe it will be awesome and great and extremely memorable and mark a turning point in the franchise. Let me believe, damn it.
>>32300448>"Well, you know the rules here already, so I don't need to tell you."What ARE the rules.Dont wanna get shanked by tarin.Inb4 ruuuuules of nature
>>32300612inb4 Prison Rules
>>32300442>t's also the onomatopoeia of soldiers marching in formation, oddly enough. I wonder what that implies about Japanese military culture?It's an IJA thing.
>>32300460You decide to queue up Gundam 00. Sure, you probably would have preferred her to start off on the original series, but the UC timeline was pretty sprawling and more than a little convoluted. Not exactly something you wanted to subject a beginner to. Plus, she was rolling with an Exia, so you think it would be nice to see the series based on her gunpla."Alright, are we ready?" Lucina says as she walks out of the bathroom, wringing the last of the moisture out of her hair."Yep!" You grin, booting up the first episode. "Behold, the wonders of Gundam 00!"..........."So what did you think?" You say as the credits of the last episode begin to roll."So... Tieria is supposed to be a girl, right?" Lucina asks."No... they were pretty clear on him being a guy." You sigh. Lucina always seemed to get hung up on the weirdest things."Weird." Lucina frowns. "Anything else?""A lot of people died.""Yeah, that's kinda the normal thing in most Gundam series." You say. "Kind of sad, really. I liked some of them." Lucina nods. "You and me both." You sigh. "How about the actual battling?""Mmmmmm, I really did like the Exia parts." Lucina nods. "I think I need more swords."Oh boy."Do you think we can replicate that trans-am system, too?">Of course!>It's waaaaaay too late in the night (or early in the morning?) to ask that.>Other
>>32300823>Of course!holy crap we just went through season 1 in just one night. must be like 4am or something now
>>32300823>Of course!For SCIENCE! Or at least HOBBY!
>>32300823We give it that beam saw from crossbone.Fuck, a GN SAW would be badass
>>32300823>Of course!Oh yeah, she's going to like having this. Honestly, I'm surprised she doesn't have it already. Isn't Trans-Am mentioned on the model kit? Maybe she just didn't know what it was, so she just glossed over it as being technobabble.>>32300854It's about nine hours of footage, if you include credits. If we skipped them it's more like eight and a half. It's LAAAAAAATE.
Hmm, I'm wondering now...could Gunpla Battle cover quantization? I mean, Plavsky particles can teleport things, so would a teleporting Gunpla be out of the question? Because if not, maybe we can use the excuse of it being GN technology to give Lucina a sort of teleporting armory. Call it Exia Babylon, or something like that. Having a thousand different swords she could call in as needed would be pretty cool. Or even just being able to access a new sword when in Trans-Am, to drive in the idea of it being a super mode. At the very least we could probably just have the swords carried by an invisible Sillhouette Flyer.
>>32300977I'm not clear: Is that supposed to be laughing with me or laughing at me?
>>32300998>>32301003HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!Yes. I whole heartedly approve of this idea, considering I'm the guy who wants us to get a Kshatriya and put Balls and Virgo shield bits on it.
>>32301021Oh, okay, because those images are usually only posted to say that you can't possibly believe the person is being serious. I thought maybe you thought I was trolling for some reason.
>>32300959I can see "OMG HAX CHEATER" accusation when we pulled it.Its bloody silly idea, but it has potential to be awesome.
>>32300823"Of course. Pretty sure the Meijin found a way to pull it off. So we can, too." You grin. "And next time, we can finish season 2!""There's a second season?" Lucina blinks."Oh yeah, with more Exia goodness. But overall, I don't think it was quite as good as the first season.""That sounds like almost every show." Lucina says dryly."Heh, you got a point there." You chuckle and then you wince as your eye suffers a piercing pain. You're left wondering briefly what the hell just happened when you finally realize it. It was the goddamn sun.Shiiiiiiit. How long did you stay up? "I think..." You yawn. "We should get some sleep.""The time really flew." Lucina sighed. With that, Lucina rolled onto her bed while you shimmied into the hastily prepared sleeping bag on the floor. And just like that, you begin to drift away...>And that's it for tonight! Sorry if this thread was shorter than normal, but my schedule just didn't agree with me today. Also, be sure to catch the next thread for Idolrun either this Monday or Tuesday!
>>32301112>Oh yeah, with more Exia goodness.u wot m8
>>32301112It's fine, some questing is better than no questing. It was still fun. See you next time, Merc.
>>32301112Gonna need more char
>>32301112While I'm glad you managed to open a thread for us, I'm kind of sad because I don't know what to do with myself for the following weekend now. Also do you have the updated shop? I kind of want to see what we might get.
>>32301132Okay, it might be limited to just the first and last episodes, but you can't deny the Exia's appearances in season 2 are awesome.
>>32301021How about Ballbylon
>>32301155Funny way to say Lucina :P
>>32301059Nah, it was just such a crazy idea that there's no way we're not going to try to make this work. Like Enduring Ideal in EDH for those of us who play magic.
>>32301155>>32301208And then Amy will sneak in to win the Gundam Boy Friend.Just as Keikaku'd
>>32301189Yes. But still, Kshatriya w/ Virgo Bits is like the ultimate battlefield control and it appeals to my inner shenanigans.
>>32301238So she's going to be the Faylnn of this quest.
>>32301257Please add a trigger warning to any posts concerning that event in the future.
>>32301275Crit Fail on 1-3
>>32301275Will it make you stop falynn about?
>>32301275Did you just use the phrase trigger warning unironically? Thats...hilarious.
>>32301300No. I thought it was pretty clear that that post was a joke.
>>32301322In my defense it's 4am and I'm drunk.
First time kit guy here. My Thunderbolt, Amazing Booster, Battle Arms, and Gouf Custom came in early this week... didn't have a chance to get started yet, but I'm hoping I can at least do one of the smaller kits this weekend. Wish me luck! Because 5am dictates that's is bedtime now.Cheers and thanks for the quest and all the fun times as usual.
>>32301680Get into /m/ and/or /toy/ Gunpla/Plamo general.We will help.
>>32301646This can't be 1/144...too bad.>>32301680:This is no Jelly anon, no Jelly!"
>>323016971/35 Maybe 1/144 YMT-05 Hildorf?
>>32301692>>32301697Thanks I'll swing by. Pretty excited to be working with models again. It's been far FAR too long.I look forward to chilling with you all.
>Thread stil upMight as well try and milk this with more tactics and upgrade talk with the morning crowd since we're all rested now.
I thought up some interesting idea for the balls. As we know that they are less suited for ground combat. So I'm thinking why we can't upgrade it with more thruster or giving them wheels?Beside balls, we seriously need to learn how to fight without balls. Because we can't keep on depending them in all fight.
>>32307497They're nice, but I agree with you. We're a touch helpless when they're gone.Ideally I'd like to attach some servo arms to us to hold additional armaments, but i think we're out of hard points.The last upgrade we did was to our balls, so I think it's about time we put our plans in motion to turn our Gunpla into a field commander like we discussed a thread or two back. (move as a team and offer support).
>>32307497Why not? The Balls are useful and we held our own in the last fight
the balls definitely hard and useful but we need to improve our own suit.I'm thinking a simple better shield and beam rifle would be a nice bass line for us to build our tactical commander suit around. being the team support I could be pretty cool and we could also use those skills and abilities to better command the balls
>>32309229As of right now, we can get a better shield but not a better rifle. We can get a better melee weapon such as the beam spear which has longer range and the heat knife which is cheap, doesn't cost us a hardpoint, and makes a decent backup weapon
