Zegapain Garuda

Just so you know...

The reason so much of the armor and weapons was clear was because, in Zegapain, the robots used 'Hard Light', holograms, really, instead of armor plating. I can't recall why, it's been years since I've seen the show... the enemy was probably immune to normal weaponry or something.

I can't remember myself. It may have just been their way of being different. I do recall the pilots themselves also being holograms.

Though I am weak to

Though I am weak to translucent accessories and parts, I can't say that this one interests me. I'm not quite sure why...I think it may be the general design and shape. The thing looks awkward and almost looks like it shouldn't be - I dunno - together? Like it's just waiting to fall apart. I really love the hard light angle, but I just wish it was in a better looking mech.

Macross ....Techno....Tranfo...Gundam?

Looks like kitbash of the following:

Macross Plus YF-19
Technoman (Tekkaman)
TF Cybertron Sideways
Gundam Seed Gundams

Previous poster I think the reason why the translucent parts here don't interest you is that they
seem (at least from the photos) to be made with a diluted lighter color with no shine.

Usually whenever you see translucent parts they are always so colorful like sugar candies and
soo shiny like its almost glowing the way light hits it. I think they were trying to work in that this
was supposed to be holographic armor & so on, therefore lighter looking translucence.
Cause even the yellow weapons look sooo lackluster.
