I just read an excellent article that dissects all the non-Tomino Gundam
series and, surprisingly, rates G Gundam as the most Tomino Gundam series.
I will post either a full translation or a synopsis when I have the time,
but I think it is a must-read. There is also another article that
criticizes Syd Mead's designs for Turn A Gundam. Those are two pretty
long articles...
