Tomocast 23: Mecha and Robots

Apr 23 // Pedro Cortes    @PedroCortesGET


Thanks to the buggery that is the university education system, I was unable to put up a question post for this lovely show. Damn shame too. Oh well, at least you to hear me joined by Andres Cerrato, Hiroko Yamamura and MAHQ founder Chris Guanche to talk robots for 80 minutes. I'm not going to lie, it was a ton of fun to talk about Macross, Gundam, Gurren Lagann and all manner of mechanical mobile devices. There's also a tremendous amount of robo-lust, so be prepared for fangasms over various model kits and toys.

You can download the show over here if you haven't subscribed on iTunes yet. We'd certainly appreciate some ratings as well, so please leave one if you got a couple of minutes. Hit the jump for the show notes and some additional links!

All musical tracks are from the Operation British chiptune album. Give it a listen, it's awesome.

Opening: Super Dimensional Fortress Macross 'Macross Theme'L

Break: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann 'Sorairo Days'

Ending: Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory 'The Winner'


Figures discussed:

Pyramid Head from Silent Hill: Homecoming will violate your wallet.


Master Grade Epyon has long, lovely legs.


This SDF-1 makes all our trousers tight.


Super Robot Chogokin GaoGaiGar has the best name for yelling out in a hot-blooded manor.


The hideous Gundams we talked about on the pod:


I don't even know what the hell this is supposed to be.


The Cuban Gundam!


If you want more mecha, hit up MAHQ's Gundamn, where Chris and his two co-hosts talk shop about everything from the latest Gundam and Macross series to classic shows from the 80s. It's good stuff.
