I dunno... there is a Zaku clone in "Gundam X"
there are REAL Zakus in "Turn A Gundam" the
F-91 and Crossbone units still have the old
WWII GAS-MASK that is what the Zaku helmet
looks like anyway.

Yes "Gundam W" got away with NO Zakus by
adding a coke-can on top of some of their
bad guy MS instead of a head unit.

And I've never seen G Gundam, but I asume
its all Gundams, so that invalidates it,
we don't see anything but Gundams, and I
really don't count it as a series... Just
like if Bandai did "P-Gundam" after the
Pokemon craze I wouldn't call blatant
commercial prostitution of the franchise
Gundam either...

Amuro : The leg joint on the Master Grade is a little loose
Tech A: I'll get right on it, somebody get me a polycap...
Tech B: What kinda polycap
Tech A: Polycap A, and try to trim the sprue this time
Tech B: Yeah ok...
Amuro : Oh, and can you paint something really cool on the
        Shoulder for me.
Tech A: All we got are these "Do Not use control" stickers.
Amuro : Oh, nevermind.
Tech A: Damn I can't give these away.
Amuro : Oh and tech, can I have another Beam Saber I threw
        one away today.
Tech A: We have any more beam sabers.
Tech B: Nope, guess we'll have to buy a Perfect Grade you
        can buy extra weapons for those... and the eyes light
        up too.
