I think they'd be fine in a Cyber punk story... but Gundam? Perhaps "Butt Ugly"
was a bit harsh.

Cute how they kept the mecha named something with the initials M.S.

The novel angle takes a (very small) bit of the edge off. If amuro does show up,
He might actually get lucky. ^_^

Seriously though, Amuro and Char are so popular that long time Japanese fans
might react very badly to a makeover... I seriously doubt they'll appear. Perhaps
other new characters will take their place.

Who wants to bet that given the "Heavy" nature of Tomino's novels, and the too
hip Chara designs, That this show will be an ultra dark Evangelion wannabe?
