  That's right, and I agree... the Serpent is basically the 'next
generation' badguy robot. Big bulky sinister and mean! It's got a monoeye
and it's big and bulky with big shoulders and big feet, but other than
that it bears no resemblance to the old Gundam Badguys of the past. Turn-A
gives us the "Walking Dome" which is something else entirely, something
more akin to the Zentraedi Battlepod of Macross than anything from MSG.
