I LOVE Wing Zero from Gundam Wing Endless Waltz. It's the best Gundam that had ever been designed.

Second is 00 Gundam and Exia from Gundam 00. And Deathsycthe Hell Custom from Gundam Wing.

And then Freedom and Justice from Gundam Seed

I liked the Ver Ka of the Wing Zero, only appeared as a kit and GFF figure. But I think it combines the best of 3 Gundams.

I'd KILL to see it in animation one day.

Heres my list:

1. Wing Zero Custom
Love the wings just makes it majestic
2. Virtue/Seravee/Nadleeh/Seraphim
something about Fat Gundams and lots of Guns makes me love them
3. Strike Freedom/Justice/Akatsuki
I consider those all in the same style, back wings w/ dragoons of some sort etc..
4. Kyrios/Arios
Both very agile mobile, and can transform, I love the style in which they were made

Personally, I like how they designed Akatsuki's head. The 2 side fins make it look awesome IMO.

But...SF ftw. The 8 wing-like DRAGOONs, the chest cannon, and the hip cannons all combines nicely.

Something I'd like to comment on the OO Raiser's design though. With those big things hanging from the suit's shoulders, wouldn't it limit the area of movement that the swords can do? Unless the GN Drives are swivelled back, the GN Swords may actually hit the Raiser on certain angles if precise movements of the Gundam wrists are to be exploited.

To put it simply, imagine yourself in a sword fight with two big things hanging on to your shoulders - wouldn't you take extra care not to hit them by accident? Or rather wouldn't it limit some of your movements?

This is my secret little beef with melee type mobile suits. They should have complete freedom and space of movement for their longer, blade weapons. As in, no wings, no fancy backpack that will get in the way. I'd say even Infinite Justice might suffer from this as well if Athrun was to slash at a certain angle, but at least his backpack can detach.

Maybe the units are preprogrammed to move away from the arms?....

Yea, I personally watched just the movies of Zeta and the chosen episodes of the series but did not see Hyaku Shiki deflecting beams like SEED's Akatsuki did. But I admit I assumed that I must missed something when I read this on mahq:

It was really totalled at the end by mega beam spamming from The O and Quebeley.
Even if, for a unit that was getting quite old by the end of the series, it did fairly well, I think Especially with its pilot being like one of the best Zeon veteran pilots ever

Before I'd heard about the beam coating, my friends and I always thought the gold plating might've been used to reflect sunlight at an enemy during combat, like shining a flashlight in someone's eyes...

Well, the best way I can imagine it is that the coating might've been reflective to an extent, but completely beam resistant. Apart from that, I've always imagined Char/Quattro to be a pilot who wouldn't even take advantage of the coating. If I had the coating, it'd be a nice reassurance for protection, but I wouldn't rely on it.

Who knows? Maybe the Argama crew ran out of the stuff just before Operation Maelstrom and just gave it a coat of gold paint.

Now the Akatsuki on the other hand, that thing must've been made completely out of anti-beam coating. I've never seen a suit shrug off so many beams in my life!

The wings move like "No Hotlinking"....?

Quite a lot that I like with no particular favourite. But here's a sample of some of the one's I favour

- Hi Nu Gundam (Love the design of it + fin funnels, just love em)
- Rx 178 MK II Titans (Solid, sturdy, less gimmicks makes it look strangely appealing)
- GM Sniper II (Snipers, just love snipers. Not enough of em around in Gundam if you ask me)
- RGZ-95 ReZEL (Sleek, wishful hoping they release a MG version of this)
- MSN-001A1 Delta Plus (IMO looks better than the successor Hyaku Shiki)
- Rick Dom (One of the best Zeon units IMO)
- RX-78GP03 (A classic design from the UC timeline)

I could go on for quite a while so I'll leave it there lol

I actually prefer regular Nu over Hi-Nu, but my opinion might change if I saw it animated.

Maybe it's just me but I feel the original Nu looks a bit bland. Much prefer the evolve version of Nu though

Even if animated, in SRW, I always thought Nu looked cooler in action than Hi-Nu.

The way the Fin Funnels launch one by one while Nu twirls around is always cooler than Hi-Nu releasing all 6 at once, there's just something special with the unsymmetry of the Fin that gave the name Fin Funnels.

The black and white is more classy than Hi-Nu's blue or purple.

Though of course Hi-Nu itself is also a very nice looking design.

That's definately true. The funnels launching one at a time does look much better. Almost mesmirizing...oooooo funnels. Maybe I should think about doing a MG Hi Nu in classic Nu colours

Yeah. TBH, it was the first UC Gundam to ever draw my attention and the first UC MG I bought for myself. My personal choice is the unit 03, the one Kamille stole :]

I see we have this one big thing in common! The love for sniper mechas radiates to all the other series, making me like such Gundams as Buster and Dynames on sight.

Yeah. And it belonged to the Zeon superace Brenev Auggs with most kills on the side of Zeon :]

I have to agree on this one. It is among of the most balanced and sleek hero Gundam designs. The back thrusters are something that makes it all cool and smooth. it looked even better when docked to this giant castle-like thing called Dendrobium :]

Great minds think alike Although I have to say Buster was disappointing. He seemed more like a weak artillery support than a sniper

Not that weak Still, I forgot this lil' difference that I generally like long-ranged mecha (including artillery ones :]). Big bazookas, cannons and rifles FTW!
