  The V-G designs were really unique, they had a really neat sense of
mechanical detailing (like verniers, knobs, bolts, etc) with a cool
organic overall aesthetic... which meant that they had a seamless
combination of fluid-rounded shapes and blocky mechanical ones, it was a
very unique design style that seemed super-futuristic, in the same way
that a modern molded-plastic motorcycle looks more futuristic than say,
one of those old Harleys.

  If you could draw a straight line... I bet you could draw a
mold-breaking gundam better than Turn-A!

  YEAH!! That would have been cool! We could have done it just like our
"Mobile Suits Makeover" contest!

  That's an idea! For the next MSM contest, I vote to make the target MS
none other but the TURN-A-GUNDAM ITSELF!!!!!
