crossbone gundam homage(?)

Postby Optimus Primevil » Fri Aug 19, 2011 10:05 pm

did michael bay intentionally or unintentionally setup the forest fight in RoTF almost exactly like the fight between the crossbone gundam x1 and crossbone gundam x2...at least the ending (optimus/x1 diverts his attention and gets stabbed in the heart)

Yeah, I don't see it either. The question you should be asking is if the character designers deliberately made Optimus with Jetfire's parts look like 00 Raizer. ;)

i was kinda forcing the similarities but at least you can dub the RoTF lines in the movie and it'll kinda fit with the gundam video.

and i think the nominus-ZZ comparison will end if nominus in apex armor looks exactly like the full armor ZZ

i've just watched again the last episodes of gundam 00 and slapped my head that i missed the comparison between the DoTM ark and the celestial being ship, celestial being, both are found on the dark side of the moon and both got raided by baddies before the good guys knew of their location.

so, who'se going to go to the trouble proving sentinel prime is f*cking ribbons almark?
