Favorite Gundam

What is your favorite Gundam and why? Doesn't have to because of a kit, doesn't have to be because of that one certain episode with that one really cool scene. Any Gundam any reason. Go!

Since I posted it I will start. Hydra Gundam. Growing up in the 90s when Toonami first put Gundam Wing up that was it, I was hooked. I had to have everything Gundam. Not long after I go a Playstation for Christmas I found Gundam Battle Assault, a basic fighting game that happened to be Gundam themed. Had to buy it and play it none stop. The final fight was the Hydra Gundam, at the time it was the most evil and completely badass looking thing I had ever seen. Now I look back and just think about how messed up of a kid I was, but in a good way. Now I just can't wait for Gundam Wing to turn 25 in hopes that they do some 2.0 kits and maybe (this is a complete dream and unrealistic) a MG Hydra.

Hey PenguinSteve,
Ahh The late 90s- great memories of Junior high, getting into Gundam, and the Playstation One ..

But back to the subject at hand- favorite Gundam!

I would have to say the Rx-178 in Titans colors.
Sure, the Titans were a bunch of space jerks but damn, that Gundam Looks soooo good in Dark Blue 8) 8) 8)
Seriously though, It's such a classic design and to me there's something so aesthetically pleasing of seeing
a big bad ass robo in dark blue. Same reason I love the Rx-0 Banshee!

 And as a Gundam Wing fan you have something to look forward to... I believe an MG ( or possible Re/100) Leo is in the works!
Well if Bandai doesn't make a Hydra maybe you can scratch build one    ;D ;D ;D

Sieg Zeon!

My Overall favorite, as a machine and in looks, would probably be the F91. It looks slick and is packed full of great tech without looking over burdened or over-engineered. Plus it's just unique looking enough to set it apart from other Gundams.

My runner ups would be Gundam Mk II and Gundam Exia.

Im stuck between the ever so predictable Unicorn RX-0, in Unicorn mode its a sleek hyper-mecha looking Gundam and the MSM-07 Z'Gok for it slightly mad but mean utilitarian look.

I would have to say Ex-s Gundam, I just love it, it's a gundam on steroids, I know it is a complete overkill but I just love it.

Close second would be the GP00 Blossom (not my kit picture here)



I love the lean look, the sharp angles, the radom and the gun which probably remind me of the Ex-s  ;D

Ok, Mine is weird because unlike a lot of Gundam fans my age I've never really even watched Gundam Wing, but I always end up being drawn to a Heavyarms whenever I see it. It gives the impression that is would just do a DBZ style pose and scream as it pops all its missile hatches and unleashes hell.
