That would be cool, if you think about. Good-guys have Gundams to protect
them and the bad-guy's have sinister looking Gundam's to do their evil deeds
and protect them. I like the Turn A as a robot, but not as a Gundam. The
V-Gundam designs are my favorite Gundam and bad-guy mecha designs. I see
your point. I wish the Turn A looked more like a Gundam. If I had the art
skills, I bet I could make a awesome, great looking, mold breaking Gundam.
The fans can come up with better designs then Syd Mead. They should have had
a contest where fans design Gundams and Tomino picks the one he likes best.
