Neil Baumgardner asked, where are they now? Well, let's see...
ONE YEAR WAR ERA
* Amuro's Gundam was trashed at the end of the One Year War.
* Ditto the Alex.
* The G-3 magnet coating testbed presumably remained intact at Luna Two.
* The Gundam GP01 and GP02 were destroyed.
* The GP03 survived. Odds are it was salvaged by the Titans.
GRYPS & AXIS CONFLICT
* Two of the three Gundam Mark II units were scrapped for parts by the
AEUG, and the third one was eventually blown up at the end of ZZ.
* Char's Type 100 is trashed at the end of Z. The one in ZZ may be a
second unit - I don't remember - but it remains intact through the end of
the series, so if you count this as a Gundam, it's the third survivor
after the G-3 and GP03.
* The Z Gundam was blown up at the end of ZZ.
* Most of the ZZ Gundam was destroyed at the end of ZZ (only its chest,
one arm, and part of the head survive).
* Both units of the original Psyco Gundam were destroyed (although the
second unit only lost its head).
* The Psyco Gundam Mark II was decapitated, then salvaged by the Axis,
who eventually rebuilt it and let the ZZ Gundam blow it up.
* We also have Anaheim's Gundam Mark III and Augusta's Gundam Mark IV,
which may not have entered battle and thus remained intact.
* The Superior Gundam and Gundam Mark V are destroyed during Gundam Sentinel.
* The Z Plus isn't technically a Gundam, but lots of these are left
around the place.
CCA AND BEYOND
* The Re-GZ survives the end of Char's Counterattack, minus a few limbs.
* The Nu Gundam, presumably not
* Hathaway's Xi Gundam is wrecked and captured by the Federal Forces.
* Two F90 units are produced - three, including the Cluster Gundam - and
all seem to survive intact. (The second F90 unit is captured,
reconstructed, wrecked, and reconstructed again into the F90II.)
* The Silhouette Gundam survives to be reconstructed into the Kai version.
* Both units of the Neo Gundam are destroyed in the Silhouette Formula comic.
* Seabook's F91 is pretty well trashed, but another half-dozen or more
are subsequently produced, including Captain Harrison's navy-blue one.
* Zabine's X-2 and Tobia's X-3 are destroyed, but Seabook's Crossbone
Gundam X-1 survives and is parked on Earth.
* One V Gundam and one V2 Gundam survive the final battle with the
Zanscare Empire and are parked on Earth.
Note the high concentration of Gundams stashed in the woods on Earth. We
have a V Gundam, a V2 Gundam, and a Crossbone Gundam for starters. No
wonder they're so easy to dig up in Turn A Gundam. ;-)
