SFMLab is currently in READ-ONLY mode

SFMLab will soon be migrated to a new codebase. In preparation for this, we have temporarily disabled some site functionality, namely the features listed below. This is necessary to ensure the move will not lead to accidental data-loss. You should still be able to download existing files available on the site.(although the EU server will suffer from reduced availability)

SFMLab will stay in read-only mode until the end of February, when the migrations are set to conclude.

It's been eating away at me at the model of this particular super robot on the workshop like a bad itch. The initial release of it was..not good. To be frank it was someone's first model port but I knew it could come out better.

So I took it upon myself to take that model and it's source to make an improvement over the initial release.
Now I present to you, the Enhanced King of Braves, Genesic GaoGaiGar.

What is GaoGaiGar? It's what happens when you slap the Evangelion out of a super robot show and give a healthy dose of nostalgia and homage.

But in all honesty, it's the 8th and final entry in Sunrise's "Brave" metaseries, a series that reintroduced the Super Robot genre to japanese mainstream in the 90s. The show combined previous elements of the Brave Series with an ambitious throwback to the Super Robot mentality of the 1970s, presenting a sharp contrast and commentary to the harder-edged, more complex anime television series emerging in the wake of Evangelion.

The model itself is a depicition of the final evolution of GaoGaiGar, Genesic. It doesn't use flexes like the initial model,save for a few for the crest in the stone upon it's head, and I managed to reduce the amount of materials of it too, as well giving it a sharper look befitting a Super Robot.

The model is incomplete only because I have not included the "Bolting Driver" and the "Will Knife" of the initial model...yet.

The file also comes with the Marg Hand and Goldion Hammer, which has a skin for self-illumination.

That's all for now.
