Model Description : This is a mecha from the Japanese anime,

Bubblegum Crisis. In Episode 5, "Moonlight

Rambler," Daley Wong describes:

"The stolen 'D.D.' packs some impressive

firepower ... Don't underestimate it,

Leon. The D.D. is a new type [of]

battlemover, equipped with the 'J-1'

auto-control system. It's highly

intelligent, and may have more firepower

than our K-12 A.T. ... J-1 is a

completely unmatched automated combat

system ... which activates if the pilot's

heart rate drops below a certain level.

If J-1 runs out of power once it

activates, then Boom! It self-destructs

... using a micro-neutron bomb!"

Other Info : Bringing you tomorrow's PPM today -- in other

words, it has a lot of polygons.

Anime Fans : I'm only a casual otaku, with very limited

exposure to anime, beyond what's shown on

my local PBS channel, and what my friend

lends me. So to all serious otakus, which

are the best-looking mecha robots in the style

of Gundam ZZ and Macross? I'm referring to the

mechanical type, not the bionic/organic type

-- and with big guns and missiles. My

favorites are the D.D. and Power Dolls -- are

there others like them?

was just a new skin job for Dan Bickell's Han Solo model -- obviously,

the skin is for my private use only.
