But Gunbuster actually looks good! um, 70's robots had frills look at Mazinger
Z, Gundams are flashy, but more realistic looking then Mainger Z, Getter 1,
etc. This Gundam design is really basic, then. This new Gundam couldva been
more baisc comapred to Wing's Mecha for instance, but not Gorillaish like this
new design. This design should be furtristc looking compared to other Gundams,
more stremlined, but flashy, but not too flashy. This robots too back to
basics, too 70's ish. Come on this is 1999, not retro ville. But then again,
in a few years, we might be remembering how we hated that new Gundam from 1999
and laugh or more likely cry.
