Welcome to the Giant Robot Clan!
This is a clan open to anyone who has an appreciation for robots of a giant scale.
Man sized ones (short circuit), transforming ones (Transformers), really big ones (Unicron\Gunbuster) - anything!
It was originally just supposed to be a 'Transforming Robot clan', but to be honest, I don't have it in my heart to turn away someone with Xabungle, or Dougram or something like that.
Joining is simple - simply post:There is no hierarchy system. We are all equal in our appreciation of everything large scaled and robotic.Your name
Your favourite robots
Why you like them
Any other interesting information you may have.
Naturally.. images are favourable.
The only rule is that, on this thread, should you refer to me, I ask that you refer to me as 'Papa Karmoon'. This confers no authority, it just makes me laugh and it's a minor reward for setting up this clan .
Anyone is welcome to design a little under banner or something like that - should you do so, it might be a good idea to make a large one and a small one. People who kindly offer there services can of course ask to be referred to as uncle or grandpa or whatever they like while on this thread.
Just remember, that we're still bound by the rules of LO (which can be found in my signature). We wouldn't want Papa to angry now would we?
Current glorious, esteemed and mighty members:

Alright, Papa karmoon, I'm tickled by this.
by name, are you asking for real name?
I'm theyak, and I'm a robohaulic...
My favorite robots are: Gundam, specifically but not limited to the V-gundam series.
Perhaps its just my memory of it from when I was much younger, but I remember being totally and completely blown away by the animation and the careful planning of the concept models.
Nothing about the transformations were assumed, but each piece actually had a purpose and moved to make sense. I thought it was by far the best gundam series I'd ever see to this day.
On the list is the Z-gundam, and the ZZ gundam series. I was too young to really remember a lot from either of the series, but it made such an impression on me that I saved up my allowance for months to get a replica(transformable) of the Z gundam. I wish I still had it to this day.
From those serieses, the Psycho gundam really made an impression on me as well. I remember being really blown away by the sheer destructive force of it.
I'll have to dig up some images later.
Alright, some pics:

For me its transformers all the way. They made me laugh, made me cry, and made me run around the streets shooting evil decepticons (usually little old ladie's with shopping carts)
As ive matured ive come to embrace all fighting robots, but the TFs will always have a special place in my heart.
RIghto, I think I shall join the mighty fray! :yes:
Name: I am Karmoon
Favourite Robots: MSZ-006 Z Gundam (Z Gundam), VF1S Valkyrie (Macross), Shin Getta 1 (Shin Getta Robo), Bilvine (Dunbine)
Why do I like them: The Zeta's design is excellent, and has a really interesting development which is done throughout the series. Zeta Gundam remains one of my favourite anime, or indeed any type of show of all time.
The VF1S needs little explanation. The designer of valks was a massive aeroplane geek, so designed the valks so that their transformations could all work - mechanically anyway.
Shin Getta 1 is my favourite 'super robot'. I like the fact that it's a daemon and the powers it harbours may turn against mankind.
Bilvine is a really cute zippy little thing. The anime it comes from, however, is probably one of the most tragic things I've ever seen. It left me emotionally drained, and for that reason, I'll never forget Dunbine or Bilvine.
I encountered most of these robots through the excellent set of games, Super Robot Wars スーパーロボット大戦. Apart from increasing my Japanese ability triple fold, it also meant I got a good grounding in everything robot based. Watching the series of the mechs I had used was just a formality.

Adrian is in, Karmoon.
My favorite robot will obviously have to be Canti... from FLCL.
But I do like all the Gundam Series as well.
I like Canti because he's got the comic relief that is ever present in FLCL, plus he's uber powerful, can take on any gundam when in Atomsk-Mode.
Canti does this by eadtin Naota.
Woo. Giant robots!!! w00t!
@ The Yak
Victory Gundam you say? Wow, there's a rare choice of Gundam if ever I heard one!
Most people are either Wing/Seed or UC Gundam.
I know officially that V Gundam is UC, but you know that I mean.
I must say, I love the two opening themes to V Gundam. "Stand up to the Victory" and "Don't stop Carry on!" are really mighty songs - they always cheer me up
As for Psycho Gundam.. I've always wanted to go to Hong Kong for that reason I know it's stupid. but Psycho Gundam really had an impact on me too.
Remind to NEVER get involved with blue haired girls that get headaches!

Your favourite robots:
Eva Unit 01
Why you like them:
MS-01 Zaku Do i even need to say why? Apart from being one of the most famous mobile suits ever and as part of the gundam timeline being part of the start of the whole mecha fandom the zaku is the best "Real war" Mecha there is. (Well blue gender has more of a real war mecha but its not massive so i can't post it)
Funny really that when i first saw the zaku i found is design a bit cartoony at first with its one red eye and big shoulder spikes but after seeing gundam 0080 (My fav gundam) and later gundam the 8th team i found myself warming to the Zaku and the great charatcers that pilot them.
Aslo the zaku is not a war winner as some of the gundams seem to be and that always makes it exciting knowing that the peolpe piloting them need to be skillful and use the terrain well ect.
You could say the same about the GM's but the zaku is the better suit both in looks and on the battlefield.
Zone of the enders is one of my favorite animes both the t.v series and the OVA and i aslo enjoy playing the games so IDOLO was asways going to be one of my fav mechas.
This suit is so graceful in the way it flys in the air and in the way it moves and at the same time is so deadly with its many energy attacks and amazeing agility. Of course having good characters in the story helps and zone of the enders has just that.
Eva Unit 01
We all know that Eva unit 01 can act just like a normal mecha fighting the angels but at the same time the eva is really a living thing that can go on a rampage at any time without warning.
Watching the eva in battle is really a sight to behold when the eva gos berserker as you can feel the almost pure animal rage when it opens it mouth and screams out your heart skips a
