5 Fortuitous Casting Substitutions (Article) - 7/22/2010 8:50:10 AM

redhairs99:  Are you sure about the Wachowski brothers not directing "V for Vendetta"?  I realize James McTeigue is officially listed as the Director but I always had the impression that the brothers were the ones pulling the strings and laying their hands all over the production and editing of the film -- essentially, the same situation Richard Marquand found himself in when he "directed" Return of the Jedi.

That said, I may be overstating just how extensive the brothers were involved on V's direction. ^_^;;

14 Awesome Future Modes of Transportation Thanks to Anime (Article) - 6/15/2010 7:15:44 AM

ultrazilla2000:  You can't argue against Veritechs making the list when VOTOMS made it. ;-)

A really fun list but I think there are some glaring omissions.  I suppose the only thing I would have suggested for this article would be to break down each vehicle type into categories and list examples from multiple sources. 

Anyhow, I submit the following as Gundam and the series that would form Robotech were seriously snubbed:

1. MOTORCYCLE/BODY ARMOR:  Cyclones (from "Genesis Climber Mospeada")

2. TRANSFORMABLE JET FIGHTERS:  Valkyrie (aka Veritech; from "SDF Macross")

3. TRANSFORMABLE HOVER TANKS: Spartas (from "SDC Southern Cross")

4. TRANSFORMABLE SPACE BATTLESHIPS: SDF Macross (from "SDF Macross")

5. GIANT ROBOT ARMOR:  Mobile Suit Gundam/Zaku (from "Mobile Suit Gundam" and its million variations)

6. ANTHROPOMORPHIC, TRANSFORMABLE, COLLECTIVE BODY ARMOR:  GoLion (aka Voltron; from "Beast King GoLion";  okay, I'm kidding with this one! lol...)
