View Full Version : Seperated at birth?

Are these 2 units the same... or totally different?



08-29-2001, 06:49 PM
Rommels opinion: One is an earlier edition of the faambaa (top), the other is a later edition... ;)

08-29-2001, 07:04 PM
i agree with rommel the one is just an eariler edition of the famba

08-29-2001, 07:22 PM
The first one is an earlier version. The second one looks way better!!!

Come on Rommel... you know the forums better than that...

I seems like people are loosening up... don't!

I'm sorry... I just thought it sounded more 'off topicish'

I voted for cousins. They are the same animal it seems, but they ahve different pieces of machinery attached to their backs.The bottome one is a fambaa shield generator, and the other is the gungan equivalent of the ATAT i think.

I agree with Tie. They are the same type of creature, but the top one is an AT-AT equivalent. Look first at this screenshot:
Notice that there is no shield. Then look here:
There's the shield! See? :D

and the winner is TIE. johny show him what he's won. i agree with tie. the top one looks like it is some sort of gungan cannon but i didn't think the gungans had lasers

I agree with Tie and Thrawn. The top one appears to be like a gungan equivilant of the Empire's At-at. The bottom one has that lightning thing that means it is a shield.

08-29-2001, 09:16 PM
Yeah, the top one looks like it has a big blaster cannon on its back:D

awesome! Faamba Blaster Cannons! Mooooooo! Die Trade Federation!:swear:

you have to admit that the gungans are looking better all the time. i still like the imps though.

I it could be a giant energy ball shooter, see the giant ball in the screen.

Also, another possiblity could be that it could be one of the "pummel" weapons, like of the anti-mech variety.

i have to agree with Tie here; a cannon or catapult-device that shoots those blue energy balls is most likely.
Scouts and Knights could be separated at birth too in AoK... same deal here in my opinion. Variations of units will prove to be in the details; not the complete change of looks.

ok i was wrong i admit it i agree with tie now:tie:

the change would between the units is to dramatic, I think. So I go for two sperate units with the same beast of burden.

Hey Rom, next time you watch TPM, open your eyes!

The shield fambaas have the round things on top like in the bottom screen.

Besides, how is it supposed to project a shield when it is obviously pointing out, not up?

yeah i agree with Tie...that top one is either their eqivalent to a heavy mech(AT-AT) only it got no place to transport Gungans like an AT-AT or its the gungan equivalent to a truebechet. Since we saw the concept art for the gungan blaster cannon truebechet thingy, im willing to be that's a Gungan heavy assault AT-AT type unit. The bottom one looks more like a shield generator.

08-31-2001, 05:18 PM
I still think it's the same unit, different versions

08-31-2001, 05:19 PM
YAY! At least there is one sane person here! j/k ;)

08-31-2001, 11:03 PM
If I rember in TPM the top one shot an energy beam at the bottom and that created the shield
