  On the other hand... it probably holds the record for the Gundam with
the shortest screen time and WORST luck! I mean, it gets shot down from
space, dropped into the ocean, self destructed, rebuilt, launched into
space, blown in half by Libra, etc etc...

  I'll have to agree with that... and the animation didn't even try to
explain it. Again, it was almost more like "G-Gundam mechs gone LOOSE in a
UC Gundam timeline!" than anything else. The funky crazy
Beam-Trident-Scythe etc weapons also bugged me. Come on guys!
  On the other hand, I liked the whole 'stealth MS' appeal of the G-boys'
gundams... on the gripping hand, I wish they LOOKED stealthy! I don't care
what kinda freaky radar-absorbing Goondanium alloy you're made of... a
bright red white blue and gold robot just _can't_ be all that stealthy!
