Definitely more exciting than the Go-Bots art.
Go Nagai is basically one of the reasons both the hentai and super robot genres exist. I don't think he was strictly the creator of the dodgy stuff but he was a huge force in popularising it (just thought it was funny someone was worried bout Sakamoto...Nagai makes EVERYTHING from the legends manga look like the My Little Pony comic, Nagai makes Kiss Players blush). And he took the base built by stuff like Tetsujin and RAN with it. Most of the most well known 70s-80s super robo shows are either Go Nagai creations or derivatives. He's also credited for the introduction of the darker and more psychological elements into this kinda fiction.
Actually wish he was more involved in the writing side of this cause the man knows insane crazy robot action
This works! Looking forward to it.
Lol fucking hell this is genius. Also it looks like MP Bumble V2 is on the second cover there. Feet kibble!
In case you don't know who the eyes in the back belong to. Baron Ashura. They're a mummified married couple from an ancient society turned into a conjoined cyborg by Dr. Hell.
So this. Nagai sensei was a true master of the darker manga arts. Lol. Pun intended.
MAZIN GO!!!! and ROLL OUT!!!
Optimus has some huge fuckin' nuts charging Mazinger bare-fisted like that.
It's the rocket feet. He's drunk with power.
These covers are great! But I have to wonder; do they lie, or is there going to be a confrontation between the Autobots and Mazinger? Could go either way, I\'d think. Still really hoping for mechanical beast Decepticons. OH! And a fight between Mazinger and Devastator!
Can you imagine the Powers of the TFs Matrix of Leadership combine with Photon Power.
Dr. Hell or Megatron, destroy the Pilder, Prime scans it, and becomes the Prime Pilder. Koji hops on board and Mazinger Photon Energy is infuse with the Matrix Power.
Breast of Fire + Matrix of Leadership = Matrix Fire.
Rocket Punch + Prime = Primus Punch.
Photon Energy + Power of the Matrix = Photon Spark.
Optimus Prime + Jet Scrander = Prime Scrander.
Rust Hurricane alone will terrified all Cybertronians.
Team Ups: Koji and Optimus, Sayaka and Arcee, Shiro with Bumblebee, Prof. Yumi and the Science Staff with Perceptor and Wheeljack, Borot with the Dinobots or Warpath, Dr. Hell and Megatron (Duh), Count Broken with Soundwave and the Minicon crew, Archduke Gorgon with Shockwave and, best of all, Baron Ashura teams up with Starscream.
Do we know scale between prime and M Z?
(According to Google) Z is suppose to be 18 Meters and G1 Prime is 6.7 meters.
Venus A will be there?
Mazinger is one of the short side of average for super robots. Like Optimus is probably between knee and thigh height. Last crossover like this was Evangelion and they are a minimum of 40 M tall (although the height shifts WILDLY depending on episode. Some eps they're twice as tall as this).
If Overlord shows up, please let Mazinkaiser make an appearance to counterbalance!
Oh, btw, the second cover is by Yuki Oshima...him of Kissplay. I've never seen his nooooooot that art before.
They need to do one with Voltes V.
Dont forget Yuki Oshima is one of the MP designers now hence the resemblances
The first cover is disappointing. Optimus, Frenzy, Prowl, Grimlock, and Devastator are all based on their Dreamwave profile art, a little lazy. Dunno if the Seekers are based on anything.
