Recently I suddenly remembered the series Gundam Wing, which I used to watch when it was on Toonami. Back then I had no idea what the hell was happening, since the show had some pretty complex plots for a 12 year old. I just watched it for the kickass robots. But now I'm revisiting it again and it's still pretty damn cool, and now I'm keeping up with the finer points in the story too.

Anyone else like Gundams?

I also love those Gundam model kits. My wildest dreams for when I'm rich is to buy and build the biggest model kits available.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I used to watch the show as a kid. I remember absolutely nothing except a vague idea of what the protagonist robot looked like with the pointed yellow thingies on the head but that's about it.

My true love was Dragon Ball Z.

The model kids were badass. I wish I got a hold of the Wing Gundam Zero Custom perfect grade edition model kit. The amount of articulation on it is insane, but I don't wanna pay $400+ for it:






also Gundam Sazabi FTW!

Gundam Wing was cool. Think i only really watched Ruroni Kenshin and Tenchi Muyo though.

i played a game that was like dynastay warriors with big ass robots once on 360...not sure if related...

That would be Dynasty Warriors: Gundam. Fun game.

I'm a bit of a Gundam fan; the more recent stuff has mostly been shit with the exception of 00 and Unicorn, but it's a pretty sweet franchise. Zeta is obviously the best.

I haven't really payed much attention to the old series but I did watch the first season of 00. There's a store up north from where I am and they have a 6 foot tall Zaku model but it was priced for more than $1000.

My most recent avatar was of the RX-78. Should be no surprise. Probably gonna change it back to something Gundam-related now.

I fucking love Gundam (except Gundam SEED). Not just from the "giant robots blowing shit up hell yes" angle, but also the story angle. The (fictional) sciences at play, the story and themes, the depth of the timeline, the mechanical design, characters, everything. I have seriously given thought to writing a Gundam doujin, and I've been meaning to get back into collecting the model kits for some time now - I used to have a shit-ton of them.

I'm like the token Star Wars nerd in the movies; I would be willing to bet money that I am the biggest damn Gundam dork on this board - nay, the biggest most of you have ever met, including people IRL.

Also. The best mobile suit is the Gerbera Tetra.



Search your feelings, you know it to be true. Runners-up include the Kampfer, the Stark Jegan, and the EZ8.

No, Gundam is just a shit series that only a few of them like. G Gundam is the only good one, deal with it.

I'd rather watch four animated high school girls have a tea party than animated robots in space

I was never a huge Gundam fan. The only one I remember regularly watching was that really shit one with the midget Gundams.

I skimmed the Gundam series Wikipedia page and it's sooo confusing. There's like different universes and they're all so elaborate. Don't know how you keep up.


Also, I've been watching the show in the original Japanese dialog with subtitles. Kinda awkward to hear pilots yelling "BONSAIIII"

That's what I have so far on my MG kit. Just needs the wings. I have a lot more from when I was a kid but they're all HG and some are in pretty bad shape. I might post some pics later.

This year I'm gonna save up for the 1/60 Perfect Grade Wing Zero Custom. Hopefully the gloss pear edition.

Especially since the pilots would kill themselves at the drop of a hat just so the enemies would not get the gundam.

As I'm watching, I'm noticing that this show is very Japanese-centric. That sounds obvious, but what I mean is they have this emphasis on honor and loyalty that I think might be over-the-top to Western audiences. So this show only makes sense when you really consider the culture that made it.

But that also makes it kinda uneasy for me. Especially with the Japanese dubs, the whole thing is very reminiscent of WWII.

Not so much. Only the original, U.C., is very complex. G Gundam, Gundam Wing, Gundam X, and such are for the most part very straightforward - the alternate universes never get fleshed out as much as the original, which has a story that spans a good several decades.

Gundam 00 is the exception, because for some reason there are like eight seperate plotlines going at once in the same timeframe of the show. I don't have that one figured out.

And then there's Turn A... which puts a weirder spin on all of it.

Maybe. I don't have any money for paint or the markers, and I've had a few mishaps in the past trying to paint them >.>

But I can't even comprehend how to paint it. I'd feel like I'd have to take it all apart and paint each thing individually, and these MG kits are complicated.

But I'd really love to see this kit in a darker flat black.

Yeah I don't know how people are able to paint it. I'm also afraid of screwing up...that's why I'm gonna hold off until I'm a trillionaire and if I screw up I can just buy another one, no problem


I used to have the custom Nataku but I put it in a stance where the dragon arms are extended out and it kept toppling over until it broke

D: what scale was it? I had a 1/144 scale Nataku. I was too impatient as a kid to save up for 1/100 most of the time, that's why I only have a few of them.

Now I really want a MG Epyon kit.
