What is this!? Kids aren't supposed to have cool things!

I make 3D printed mecha action figures.
kinda feels like it is going back to the gundam G style designs. the main gundam i think looks pretty bad.
I could like this. I enjoyed the Gunpla Builders Beginning G TV special.

I asked if I have "Time For L-Gaim" but I got "No Reply From The Wind".
Bummer....I was hoping for:

i don't get it
"Age" means fried in Japanese. Unless you're questioning the photo editing skills....that would be crappy MS Paint.

Is it pronounced AGE or A-GE (meaning to bump up ala the 2chan/4chan term)?

Yes.

Bird-ish MS! Looks nice despite the shotacon character designs which will generate TONS of yaoi fanart for.

the models and toys come with an ic chip embedded in them so you can make your own variations, bring the kit to the toystore, have a machine read the ic chips and your own gundma appears on the screen of the machine and will fight other models, i guess, sort of like a do-able version of what was going on with plamo-kyoshiro a long time ago....

there was a PS game that had models included and you would hook the models up into the PS and the modifications you made to the model were translated into the screen to do battle with other robots. I forget the name of the game, and the designs were kinda weak, but I remember having some fun with that.....

I'm a little more excited after seeing the promo video. The animation looks superb, although the MS are a bit bland. The GM redesign shows some promise.

I like it. Fun gundam. Not bogged down with gloomy emo kids gundam.
>Pokévangeliundam!!!!!!!

What's Evangelion about it? Unless you're trying to use the "kids today and their pokemon and evagelion" old guy on his lawn speak.

Kids piloting robots (though Amuro was basically a kid in the OG), weapons being fired out to the robot...don't be so humorless, Vinnie.

It's also ironic how Vince is so fond of Lolicon, but complains that the boys in this Gundam series are Shotacon...

I'm not complaining at all. I'm just stating as is.

"Amuro was basically a kid in the OG"

According to the storylines, this kid and Amuro are pretty much the same age (14 & 15, respectively). Hard to believe, looking at the art. Even harder to believe this series used to be about kids being forced to grow up.

Given the ages and the appearances of the human characters, what this series actually reminds me of is a non-SD MS Saga.

Looks like Sunrise is serving up some grownup food alongside Fried Gundam.

Apparently they're making anime adaptation of Gundam: the Origin. It's pretty much a straight-up retelling of the original series with some new flourishes. Here's to hoping they keep Yas' "painted look" in the show! No word as to release date.



If we're lucky, maybe Bandai will make a model kit! One can always dream!

So does this mean Toru Furuya and Shuichi Ikeda are going to be roped in to doing the same thing they've been doing the last 30 years? Maybe they could try some new people as age hasn't been kind of Ikeda's voice. His current Char voice tends to speak only in gruffs.

So clearly this means the next manga to anime adaption will be Macross The First.

Well, that explains this:

And here I thought it was just Bandai milking the Gundam...oh, wait.

Still waiting for that Fix Metal Super-DX GP-01, Bandai!
Oh, and by the way, we knew this show was coming out, like, seven years ago, Matt.
Stop wasting our time and get with the program.

Dude, open your eyes. Gundam's shield is on upside down. UPSIDE DOWN!!!! This is mind-blowing stuff.
