Although the picture is kinda small to make any good judgement of the MS,
what it almost appears to look like is Tomino wants a Gundam look that goes
back to basics, just as the Gunbuster went back to basics in robot design
(I haven't heard many complains about that). The design is not frills and
trim, and has an air of 70's-ish giant robot influence. I dare say it, the
more I look at it, the more I like it. Good on whoever dsigned it (but I
dont like the head much...)
