Now THAT I like! See, to me

Now THAT I like! See, to me the Gundam is plain. You just see so many of them and they have the same design at thier core no matter the weapons (most times). This isn't plain to me! Well, the paint and details are plain, but that's a plus for me as well - I've always loved the plain grunt suits better than most of the main character suits. I'll certainly have to pick this one up.

This is a nice overview of

This is a nice overview of the toy and I have to say, the quadruped mode doesn't look quite as good to me now as it did in prototype shots. Still, it's nice to see some variety in the enemy mobile suits; though I don't think people gave 00 enough credit for having unique designs.

I've always found it funny that people complain about Gundams looking too similar because they have the same face but nobody ever seems to get tired of the Valkyries from Macross.

I had no idea Junya Ishigaki

I had no idea Junya Ishigaki was doing the enemy designs for AGE. He always brings a very unique style to any property he works on, especially a Gundam series. Demon robo dog is certainly up there with the crazier flying designs from Gundam X or that one that snowboards XD

"but nobody ever seems to get tired of the Valkyries from Macross."

Do ho ho~

I imagine it's because most of them transform in many different ways into very different looking airplanes. Maybe it would have been different if we'd have gotten less variation like in Macross II, but I like to think Kawamori shakes things up with enough enough radically different designs so that we don't notice the obvious VF-1, VF-5000, and VF-11 similarities :3

Cool little mech

I do like the fresh desing though it does take from the dog mechs of seed a bit, however this is more organic and akin to a dragon then a dog.

My figure was the opposite of yours, Everythign on it was extremely tight especially the legs, first I ever exp. with a damashii fig actually.

Its a shame that these mechs start becoming more gundamesque rather than going the tranforming route more. Yeah, they arent quite gundam (definitely more unique look) but they do loose the transforming ability (though I saw an image of some bigger dragon mech which I have no idea when or where it makes an appearnce in the show since i havent watched any of it.)

Good review otherwise.
