Gundam: Looking at the franchise's future

With Gundam AGE wrapping up in the next six weeks or so and the mysterious Gundam: The Origin just off the horizon (I'm not sure Bandai has revealed how they're going to do the adaption yet) I thought it would be a good time to sit down and discuss just what we want from one of our favorite franchises.

Below are some of my personal ramblings about what the series has been lacking as of late along with what it needs moving forward.

 

Shooting a Pseudo Skull

The other week our trip to the range included some interesting targets. Realistic skulls used to train medical students, filled with red Jell-o and spaghetti. For the record, that wasn't my idea. The still shots were taken with my old D300 and a cheap, painfully slow, 70-200mm lens. Due to being cheap bastards the shots were taken using FMJ rounds fired from an AR-15. The movies were filmed by smaller point and shoot cameras mounted much closer to the target (everyone was safely behind the firing line prior to any weapon going hot).
