Man, I hate the boxy GMs of 08th, The GM command and it's 0083 descendants are
much sleeker and cool looking.

This gets to my other issue with 08th... WTF are they in Gundams?! The show
would be much more enjoyable if they were in GMs. I do really dig all the OYW
cameo mecha though.

I could have decided by seeing the first episode of each show.

That is definately the coolest design in 08th, but I still don't like the boxy
parts on a GM. On a VOTOM or a CB armor sure, but not on a GM.
