"I’ve never seen the anime, but the combination of Syd Mead’s design and Yoko Kanno doing music puts it right at the top of the list. I’ve heard that if you are a diehard Gundam fan, you might not like it, but that sounds exactly WHY I would like it."

Well, Turn A finally got licensed this year by Bandai Ent. I've seen the compilation movies many years ago and I liked what I saw. I agree, it being different is what makes it appealing.

Hmmn, maybe I should do a review of the Robot Damashii Gundam Unicorn (Unicorn mode) I got last week.

I would probably fit the label of 'hardcore gundam fan', and I love Turn A. Personally, it ties with Zeta for the No.1 TV series spot. Any chance of a Turn X review coming up?

Turn-A Turn, Turn-A Turn, Turn-Aaaayyyyyyyyyy!

Argh, beaten to the punch! I've got the plain version of this and been meaning to do a write-up for some time, but JoshB got there first. Teach me to procrastinate...!

So, if you want to know what the "normal" version is like - its like this one. But white. :-)

Turn-A Gundam should be enjoyed by *everyone*, whether they are a hardcore Gundam fan or not, or even a mecha show fan or not. Its one of the best science-fiction - not just anime science-fiction, *any* medium - stories around. It really, really shows how to *truly* re-invent a franchise. It has its faults - it wouldn't be a Tomino show if it didn't - but the pros by far outweigh the cons.

I remember when the design of the Turn-A first emerged. We all laughed, didn't we? And then hated it.

Well, I repent. It makes so much more sense when you actually see it moving, and it will *still* be talked about long after the latest FreedomStrikePeaceWing-Gthing has been forgotten. Its now my favourite ever Gundam design, just ahead of the RX-93 Nu-Gundam...

Hmm, Harry Ord.

I just typed that out, didn't I? :-)

I love the design Syd Meads design since it really was different from the rest of the Gundam's yet it came out perfect.

I've only seen the compilation movie of this but my god it was cool IMHO ^.^

Couldn't agree more. Those who don't like the design are simply oldtypes held down by gravity who can't understand the awesomeness of DAT MOUSTACE.
