It was the first sanctioned Gundam designed by a gaijin, Syd Mead, who's
done designs for a few Hollywood films and was best remembered for his
designs used in Blade Runner. It was supposed to be a perfect marriage
between the West and the East, but what we got is... what the Japanese now
dub the "national shame".

>The weapons? The pilot? The mustache!?

The cockpit's location? And its removability?
