>>13861920 A Destiny with detailed art is acceptable, but the wings of light seem gratuitous in any case. If the Destiny was like the MB from the beginning it would be a different matter, but using the canonical anime style, I think the Destiny Impulse would have made more sense (and more elegant).
At least it did not have a green cannon and a gray sword for no reason.
>>13861834 It's okay. Not my favorite or anywhere close, but I don't mind it. Has a bit more style than the Strike Freedom at least. >That guy that made an hour long video complaining about the Destiny's design
>>13861834 I don't like it at all I wouldn't go like "holy shit this is the worst design i've ever seen i'll make it my life's mission to fucking kill everyone at sunrise for allowing this to happen" but it doesn't really draw you in, just looks like rx-78 redrawn to be edgier and modern, you can tell by how much it still looks like it if you remove the colors
>>13861834 not a huge fan, when I first saw this design I imagined someone trying to put ALL the cool stuff onto one gundam and see what happens. You get the signature gray-ish blue anti ship sword and green cannon from the strike packs, boomerangs, beam shield, physical shield, fuckhuge wings that are also wings of light, it's pointy, it's kinda slim, it's got fucking tear lines on its face.
>>13862130 >>13862151 this is exactly why I hated it the destiny is all over the place, it tries to be a jack of all trades that does not really shine in any area the striker packs are all different because they are intended to fill a specific role packing everything and expecting it to be good wasn't a good idea, even more when Shinn's style makes emphasis on melee
>>13862151 I think they just couldn't think of a gimmick/special weapon for it, so they decided to 'borrow' one.
I like the Destiny Gundam, but to me, it always felt like something was missing. I guess I would have really liked it if it had a loadout more like Destiny Impulse Custom, and could still separate into 3 parts.
But I think the big killer isn't whatever special weapon it has, just that because it doesn't have a decent fight scene in the entire series.
>>13862846 It's partly that most all it ever did was shoot at things impotently, or whiz around with both hands on the sword. About the only use it got out of the palm cannons was that time it caught Athrun's GOUF whip and zapped it.
Thing had lightwave shields in both hands, it could have easily been tossing the shield at people, even doing the richochet-shot thing off the shield that Impulse did, and still been protected. Or it could be decking people with the shield. Or hell, cross sabers with someone, and shoot their suit to shit with the palm cannon while their arms are occupied with their saber.
Even in the boxing stuff in GBFT, they dropped the ball because while they had it using its wings while punching, they didn't replicate the after-image effect. Sure, maybe snap build doesn't get full effects, but think about it. After-image as fuck every motion it makes, and it's lobbing flurries of punches and palm-shots at you. It could be a completely broken brawler bruiser if they'd only let it be.
>>13861834 I agree, the Destiny was okay, but I'd say not a notch higher. The Metal Build design is fairly sex though, the overdone details and sharp edges really lend well to the silhouette of the base suit.
>>13861906 >>13862049 I think it'd look a lot better without the traditional parade colors, yeah. Heine's is a vast improvement, but it needs to just go white-fin and maybe change the body color to something more flattering to the red.
>>13863407 >Destiny > Strike Freedom I'd agree with that. Strike Freedom's garish gold frame and chest cannon ruin it for me. The original proportions are also bad to begin with, though the MG rectified that issue.
Is that a custom job or official merch? Because if it's the former it's a great paint job but if it's the latter fucking laffo at Heine and his I-must-go-my-people-need-me giant-head-in-the-clouds death getting more toys.
>>13863777 It's a Metal Build limited that was sold at Tamashii Nation. It is deliberately an homage to TM Revolution and his Heine faggot. Bandai thought only to sell it at the exhibition, but it was literally assaulted by people who wanted this model, to the point of making three different Preorder.
I do not care about Heine, but i like this color scheme. If it had the white-fin and more red would be perfect, but the deep orange is acceptable.
I bought this one because get the Normal Destiny at decent price is almost impossible now, at least you could pre-order this variant with 160 euro and it's different from the usual blue and red parade.
Destiny could use a better color scheme, like the Strike Freedom. A bit of tweaks to the design and it'll be pretty good. Its concept is essentially the Perfect Strike, but with none of the awkwardness of the Perfect Strike(that some may feel makes it charming, ya know, jury rigged together weapons and all). The original design doesn't do it justice, thats for sure. It either needs to ditch the edgy tears or go all the way with the edge, which the MB did and actually made it rather menacing from some angles, so I'd say it kind of benefited from the edge.
>>13863476 That's actually really good. It could even take a splash more of gold here and there and remain rad-looking. It looks so good I'm surprised they didn't consider or straight up use it for the design of the actual series.
>>13864368 It's a little retcon, but to justify the existence of this variant, created like for a joke, in the video games for ps3 they came up with the idea that Shin and Heine had been selected for the Destiny. Two units were initially planned, but then Haine dies and therefore his unit is left incomplete.
In short, the Destiny was not a planned for Shin in particular, It was a generic machine designed to hold together all the Strike pack and fit any pilot good enough to control it. The funny thing about all this is that ZAFT has never captured the Strike Gundam, so the fact that it is developing a ZAFT version like that has always been controversial.
Unfortunately, it's a great unit in a shitty show with dumbass pilot and bad fight scenes. It's best moment was in Try, when Shimon crushed Babilonia Team in 30 seconds with some creativity. The rest was just a big waste of potential.
Destiny is not original, but it's a very nice mix of early Seed concepts (sword backpack, blaster backpack...) wrapped with some cool edgy details (wings of lights, zeta colors, palma fiocina, talgeese II eyes). In terms of weaponry, only weak point I think is the total absence of explosives (missiles, rocket launcher, shit like that).
However, in general, it's a great suit. With Dragon Momoko's MB version, it'll be even more popular.
>golden joints and all. Nigga, please... Even Okawara hated it. It's a terrible unit, specially for a protagonist MS.
>>13864524 Probably the best Destiny scheme I've ever seen.
>>13864665 >Destiny makes a good successor for Strike, while Freedom makes a better successor for Impulse. Hmmmmm.... I don't think so. Strike, Impulse and Destiny are based in the same logic: multi-purpose suit using all sorts of backpacks while supporting other units around the battlefield. Each one is an upgraded version of the old one.
Strike and Strike F. are based in beam fire power and unlimited fuel while acting with their respective "partners" Justice and I.Justice (melee power and unlimited fuel).
For me, the only part where Destiny do a strange huge stepback is about the lack of a core fighter and deuterion beam. The rest is ok.
>>13864487 >The funny thing about all this is that ZAFT has never captured the Strike Gundam, so the fact that it is developing a ZAFT version like that has always been controversial. I like to think that the Strike's versatility in battle, especially with the Archangel launching Striker packs mid-battle(which the Strike and its packs weren't designed for) basically showed ZAFT and the EA what a proper multi-purpose machine with multiple loadouts can do. The GINN had different loadouts, but the differences was literally the gun that they are using. GuAIZ didn't have separate loadouts. The ZAKU had Wizard packs and the Impulse had its sillhouettes. The Strike Dagger was an interim design with no ability to mount striker packs, but its successors all could take different packs.
Basically, the Strike's ability to take Striker packs, the jury rigged together striker pack launching they did in space, the Skygrasper, they all contributed to the whole backpack based designs in Seed Destiny.
The Sillhouettes having a fighter to deliver it was probably inspired by the Skygrasper, but I'd say the Skygrasper was better since it could use the weapons on the Striker pack its carrying to provide fire support, the Skygrasper with the Launcher pack would be pretty damn devastating if it hits something with that huge gun.
>>13861834 >what does /m/ think about this? I dislike the palm cannon. It just doesn't seem to justify itself, as it is a strange weapon that was not superior to other available options, and itself never even done anything impressive.
>>13870540 >Not cutting ships A tough enough blade reinforced with a beam edge would fuck up the interior of ships.
A beam saber would cut cleanly, the anti-ship sword cuts and fucks the areas that got cut with its blade. Cleanly cut pipes and shit that are probably easier to fix than fucked up pipes and cables in a huge mess along the entirety of the cut.
>>13870562 >terrible idea Not exactly. Considering that even top notch ships like the Archangel and Minerva has limited amount of AA guns(And they aren't everywhere), the MS would probably be relatively safe as long as they don't get in front of the AA guns. The entire bottom of the Archangel and Minerva has no fucking weapons at all, for example. And the Destiny has VPS, which makes physical projectiles useless against it in the first place so those non-beam AA fire is gonna be nothing against the VPS.
>>13870576 Aren't Seed ships protected by laminated armor thing that reduce beam attacks? It sort of make sense that the ASS has physical sword if beam alone can't do the job in one swing, but that's just my guess
>>13870597 >Aren't Seed ships protected by laminated armor thing that reduce beam attacks? Only a few special ships are, like the Archangel and Dominion. The Minerva and Girty Lue don't have laminated armor.
The anti-ship blades aren't physical cutting weapons in and of themselves, you know. Except for the tip, there's no tapered or sharpened edge.
It's stronger. It can cut through shields and large targets like ships and mobile armors.
With their sabers Impulse and Freedom could only deal chip damage to Destroy, with Shinn causing moderate cockpit damage and Kira needing to jam his sabers point blank into the guns to cause enough damage to slowly topple the thing. Meanwhile with the ship swords Shinn could slice the entire thing in half with one go.
The only problem is the swords are poor weapons for MS dueling as sabers can easily destroy the swords.
>>13871154 In the old version, excalibur beam was smaller. In the remastered version, the same beam is bigger, starting in the edge of the sword. They 'fixed' it because when freedom got stabbed by this weapon, the scene was strange.
He specifically targeted a spot he'd damaged with the saber prior though. Like how Raider knocked off Freedom's head with it's mace because half the head was already burnt off. Otherwise PS is impenetrable.
And the show confirms this since the Impulse gets a beam blade for one shot of footage that never appeared prior and never was used again just so it could take Freedom out.
