The show's original Gundam ends up either being destroyed, given to another pilot, or ignored altogether. So, I'd thought I'd put this up: Which is better in each series, the first Gundam or their replacement?

I was SO pissed off with this! The original GX-9900 was a truly unique looking Gundam. I loved the back reflector panels and cannon. Then they changed it for a far more conservative back pack look. That and the fact that the set up was done so badly I was counting down the minutes until the hero got thrashed!!
I think the design changes can work when they start off with a fairly traditional design and change it to something more interesting a la the GP-01 & Full Vernian out of 0083.
my input ;-)
