Is it the "for all" math character? Or is it shorter, looking more like,
say, nabla (the operator)? I can't wait to know how it will be
pronounced. Maybe does it imply something like "for all Gundam, there
exists one Newtype" (put the symbols were you want :-))?

I guess a damaged V-fin on the forehead is cooler than a untouched
yellow beard... I hope Zakus won't get their eye in the chest. At any
rate, Ez-08 is hardly what I'd call a reference.

Except if they use a lot of old material and/or many CGs (I'd rather
have it later then).
