The thing that impresses me most about the 0080/0083/8th MS redesings is
that they fascinate me as much as the original designs fascinated me as a
boy. Probably me favorite artist for re-vamping designs is Kazuhisa Kondo,
who took the showroom-piece Zeta and ZZ Gundams and recreated them to look
more like real weapons.
