 Regarding the mecha design thing, I would just like to
 add that Gundams from all series whether UC or not, are
 bound by a relative appearance that tells you "this MS
 is a Gundam". The head design to be particular. The idea
 was excessively exploited in G Gundam wherein you even
 get to see "Gundam-heads" everywhere. No matter what the
 color or anatomy is, you can tell it's a Gundam. I don't
 think this is true for the Turn-A though... color it
 without your usual Gundam color schemes and I doubt
 you'll think it's a Gundam at first glance.
