Hey /m/ just wanted you scream about what you think of as the worst mecha designs in anything were.

The metal build is cool (because add details and angular shape makes it particul and threatening), but the original is one of the saddest and most trivial gundam of recent time.

that's not bad design, but no design. it lacks armor in many places, so you get mechanics instead.

not really. 00 designs are more than perfect.

it's not shit designs like seed ones
>>

00 designs are far from perfect imo but I guess I just like a more classical aesthetic. Also you have shit taste m8

>>12490446
Asymmetrical mechas are shit. It they had given Quanta matching shoulders, arms and removed the giant left shield, it would had been perfect. Symmetrical mechas > asymmetrical mechas.
>>
>>12489299
>whats so trivial about After Image effects

It's a sample special effect, not an element of design. F91 and Exia have it too.

>whats so trivial about Boomerangs?

It's just a weapon. Justice has it too.

>>12488078
That's honestly the best thing about it.

Everything else has funnels, or a jetpack you can ride in.

The most Destiny has is a cumbersome booster, and a bootleg shining finger.

And that's great.

THIS is the worst design ever.
If this thing had been built in the real world I would have its creator and all those who let it be built executed for high treason.
This is what you'd would get if one believed that realistic mean "clusterfuck" and that practicality was a bad joke you do to others.

A full essay would not be enough to explain how horrible this design would be, even we put it against what mech-detractors would consider a realistic mech.
>>
>>12491159
I don't care what anyone says, I prefer Arios and Cherudim's designs (the former because it actually looks decent in MA mode).
>>
>>12491135
No, it is not shopped.

>>12491881
That's still terrible, but not nearly as bad from that angle. It might even not look like complete trash if you saw it head-on from the front, but the angle in >>12490952 really accentuates how much of a clusterfuck the shoulders are.
>>
>>12487816
It's a bit flashy, but overall the design isn't too horrible. The main issue is the simplicity of armaments.

>Twin Buster Rifle
>Head mounted gatling guns
>Beam Sabers

Not very excessive, but gets the job done. How? All aspects of combat are covered, given that the pilot can use it to its full potential.

1. ZERO system gives the pilot access to all necessary information by analysing all aspects of the combat scenario
2. Weapons cover all areas, close quarters, mid-range, long distance. Also, the green colored sensors on the forearms are used to assist in aiming the Twin Buster Rifle, which is extremely high powered and can take down most, if not all, opponents with ease.
3. Wing Shields offer incredible defense, as well as they're independent of the arms, so they can't get in the way of movement.
4. Thrusters. Fucking. Everywhere. The body of the Wing Zero EW is lined with thrusters, which means they not only allow it to travel at great speeds, but they also can help to move limbs of the mech around at faster speeds than regular mechanical motion.

Is this the best designed mech ever? Absolutely not, however you can't say that it's the worst.

Sad thing is, take off all the extra gaudy bullshit, and the Valvraves actually have a pretty solid base design.

Personally I think the flappy-crest-thing looks really nice when there's only one or two of it. I like the arm guards and chest too, and the legs have a nice shape if you can look past the infuriating asymmetrical decal.
>>
>>12492183
um.. it has Chicken Wings on its back. thats fucking stupid.
>>
>>12492230
>Chicken Wings
Uh, no? Those are more like Dove or Angel Wings.

>um...
>thats fucking stupid
Nevermind. Obvious troll.
>>
>>12492245
Angel Wings? Wing Zero had a bird theme, not an angel theme. it went into Bird Mode, not Angel Mode.

those are chicken wings.
>>
>>12492183
considering Wing (Zero)'s identity as a gundam was transforming into a MA mode was stripped away, thus it lost its identity, Id say yeah thats some really piss poor designing.
>>
>>12492249
>Dove or Angel Wings
>Dove

>Wing Zero had a bird theme, not an angel theme
I think you need to learn to read, anon.
>>
>>12492260
I'll maybe give you Pigeon Wings. but thats as high as it gets on the Bird Chain. and prolly still chicken wings due to their thickness and tendacy to molt heavily.
>>
>>12492260
i think the notion of them being Dove wings was just too silly to take seriously and notice.
>>
>>12492258
I definitely agree with you on that, taking away bird mode was definitely a flaw in the EW version
>>
>>12490511
you must absolutely hate the Rinascita then.

It's fine.

Any Gundam that isn't Psyco mk II and even it has a pretty gaudy colour scheme.

>>
>>12492569
Yes, that's what I said. Good thing we agree.
>>
>>12492222
No it's not. It's still shit. It is still gaudy and with the hollowed out arms it looks broken.

>>
>>12492938
Do you actually know what gaudy means?
>>
>>12493019
Yes, and those green highlights and terrible color scheme and color separation are very gaudy and make the design very ugly.
>>
>>12492443
Rinascita is fine, its shield isn't physically attached to its body and can actually be removed.
>>
>>12487804
But that's a good design, just without all the armor on which is how it's intended to look.

Pick any grunt suit from 00.

>>12494144
The true reason is probably the increase in action scenes. But to their credit, it's something I never really noticed in animation.
