Excatly. That's what I feel too, when I look at Gundams face. The Turn A's
face does not give the feeling of strength and bravery, that all the other
Gundams do. The Turn A is just another robot.

I totally agree. This new show (Turn A) is a great idea for a new mecha show,
but it doesn't really fit into the rest of Gundam.
