I agree, I dont think the design is that bad, but whether or not it should carry the Gundam
name is another question. To me it seems like really good fanart using the artist personal
style and not following the gundam guidelines. If this is the best example of the new suit
that they have then they are in bad shape, and I doubt this thing will make it tv. I would
not want to reveal it to the gundam public with this terrible(looks like a painting
to me) picture. Anyone else think the legs look like vacuum cleaners?
