For some reason today, I just decided to revisit the Clan. Looking back on it, I realized just how much of an influence this site had on me. I remember joining when I was ridiculously young, either 10 or 11, and coming for my love of Gundam. I'm not really into anime at all anymore, but from 4th grade to 9th grade, it (and this site) was a major influence on me. I remember making a picture with all the AC inside jokes that won me something on here, signatures for myself and others on here, fueling my anime addiction, making an ass of myself, and occasionally posting some (probably terrible) poetry that I no longer even have, but would probably get a good laugh from. It's crazy how much I changed, from a socially awkward skinny 4th grader to a college student with a 3.9 gpa, aspirations of law school, prepping for my first bodybuilding contest, interning for a senator, and working for Ron Paul's campaign. Never in a million years would I think I could be where I am today.
Ancient Clan really helped push me out of my shell, and go out and DO THINGS. While I can't see my earliest posts (probably for the best ), reading the few posts that weren't pruned just made me remember a great time in my life. While I don't think I will be all back up in this bitch posting, I'll still remember to stop in and say hi once in a while. Thanks for the memories guys. I can't believe it's been over 8 years. Now time to watch old Toonami intros with TOM and show promos and reminisce about my childhood and how much things have changed, and just how great the future can be.
...and so I end with this. I loved it as a kid, and stumbled onto it yesterday. I think it was what pushed me back here.

Watching the initial frames of the first episode made me wonder 'goddamn, this kid's annoying and if he's going to play an integral part of the series, I'll be damned' X'D but I was proven wrong. I was not annoyed by his character, moreso, at the thought that the series had a 'kiddy' element to it.
I'd have to say it's an excellent series and shows Zeon in a slightly different perspective, we're riding their story. The opening scenes with the Zeon suits is really sweet hehe and they decipate the Federation suits, ending battle is also pretty good between the Zaku and the Gundam. All in all, a good story and not just senseless fighting in super suits.
How do you guys rate this series ?
EVA-01 liked a post in a topic by BlitzZ in Master Grade F91 Model Coming in July!
This thread is for general discussion of gundam models, you can talk about the latest models, discuss techniques, post pictures, etc.
For a while now rumors of a Master Grade F91 have been floating around, but now they are confirmed, the F91 will be coming out in July and will also have parts to be made into the f90. The f91 will be roughly an inch shorter than the other MGs. Bandai also announced that the F91 will have a polycap-less body, so will it turn out like the G-Gundam Master Grades and their "Action Frame?"
Only time will tell.
My Opinion:The beam shield and overall looks of this mech are definitely making a good impression, and I will eventually purchase this item, although if the reviews are good, this item will end up on my self sooner, rather than later. My only gripe with this model is the size, I don't want my Master grade looking like a High Grade 1/44.
