The FAZZ wasn't a true replacement for the ZZ, just a power-up.
Gundam ZZ introduced the concept of the Gundam Team. It was the first time
that there was more than one Gundam in action at a time. This was a
precursor of sorts to the current trend of everyone having a Gundam, which
I personally dislike only because I think it cheapens the currency. That
and the obsessive need to bring in a new Gundam with each and every Gundam
story are the two worst trends of modern times, in my not-so-humble opinion.
