Heh. Some friends and I had a lot of fun thinking up what G-Gundams could
be like. One of my favourites was Neo-Scotland's "Highland Gundam" with
beam-cannon bagpipes. Then, there was Neo-New Zealand's "All Black Gundam"
(modelled off a rugby player). And I considered writing a (very silly)
fanfic about a new Neo-Sweden Gundam which succeeded the Nobel, and induced
absolute horror in everyone. Its name - ABBA Gundam.
Oh, and speaking of gundams which resemble characters from a certain
popular magical girl show, I read a fanfic yesterday called "Pretty Soldier
["MOON SATTELITE HEART ATTACK!!!!"]
