uhm...did it *look* like a windmill or *have* a windmill attached to its
back -- neither. that particular gundam IS a windmill. :)

it's so funny, you have to look at it. take a stroll through the mecha
domain. it's got most all the gundams (all series) in there.

take a look at mermaid gundam (denmark), and original shuffle alliance
mecha. and the zebra gundam (kenya). and the matador gundam (spain). and
tons other uber-funky designs.

the pharoah gundams (egypt) were actually cool though. zeus gundam looked
like something out of daitarn/daimos era...

while we're at g gundam. why is the minaret gundam (turkey) on the show
different from the minaret gundam posted on mecha domain?
