Don't you think Shinn story is already kinda over? He was a depressed teen that lost his family went on a spiral of self destruction, took an ass whooping from Atrun to tell him what he should have heard 20 episodes ago. now there tons more you could do with him after Destiny because he in sense is a new character.

Well, that particular arc is over, but if there is ever a sequel, Shinn's life story could continue. It doesn't mean he has to be the main character, but he could still have a subplot.

Had the movie went as planned, there might be still some story for Shinn seeing as how Stella was supposed to have a role.

AFAIK, Stella's VA said that she wasn't making a physical appearance, just in spirit.

Which, in context, would make a lot of sense.

You forgot Zaku Warrior and Savior!

Just like Athrun did!

Oh, sure, but it's still most likely with new dialogs, otherwise she wouldn't bother mentioning it.

The Zaku was just a grunt suit Athrun needed to borrow. I doubt he had any emotional attachment to it. The Saviour seemed to make him uncomfortable since it represented him "selling out" to Durandal at a point when he was starting to believe doing so was a bad idea. And the first Justice, well that was something his father gave him to destroy Naturals, despite how he otherwise choose to use it.

Infinite Justice though was given to him by Lacus when he was feeling lost, and gave him the ability to fight for what he believed in with no strings attached. I think he'd be a little more attached to that one.

Exactly, which is why I see him insisting they upgrading it. Though that would just mean enhanced versions of what it already has. With perhaps slightly better speed and maneuverability as well. Although I'd replace the physical shield with two beam shields and add a second beam boomerang.

Actually, the Saviour also gave Athrun a purpose. He still believed in ZAFT's cause when Kira destroyed it.

If Athrun can't use the Infinite Justice for whatever reason, he would be fine as long as he can still fight to protect whatever he wants to protect, no matter what mobile suit he uses.

I don't think it needs an upgrade at the moment.

I'd be terrified on what kind of upgrades it'd get. 'bout the only thing I can see them doing is giving it DRAGOON units more like the one on the Dreadnaught, Providence, or Legend Gundams, given the superior amount of firepower those possess.

My point is that he doesn't care for any of them regardless of their fates. They're just tools for him.

At least Kira loved his Freedom even if he did eventually use it as a tool to cover the Archangel's escape.

Well what good is a MS if you don't actually use it? It's not like Kira headed out planning on getting Freedom blown up. In fact neither did Athrun all 3 times he lost an MS.

I pretty sure arthun won't get to much of a upgrade his MS have pretty much stayed in a steady ball park. if he does get an upgrade it'll be something like Aegis and Infinite Justice combination so pretty much a justice that can transform into a MA. I'd be more interested in Shinns upgrade i could see him getting a Dragoon upgraded Destiny some like a "Legend Destiny" after all Kira was Upgraded to Dragoons why not Shinn. after all anybody can use dragoons now. I would really like to know how the Akatsuki could be Upgraded, with its beam reflecting coat, think of that on an more up to date suit, that could turn into something awesome

I doubt that Athrun's melee-heavy battle style would be conducive for DRAGOONs. Any upgrades to his suit would be designed around giving him more mobility or melee weapons.

Technically speaking, the Justice's/IJ's backpack is a pseudo mobile armor. Turning IJ into a mobile armor seems like too radical a change, they might as well just design a whole new suit entirely.

Shinn's more close combat-oriented, so I don't think DRAGOONs would be very beneficial. I'd just give Destiny a new/better mid-range weapon.

Athrun has a melee-heavy battle style only because the Infinite Justice is equipped for such. That doesn't mean he can't use a mobile suit designed for more ranged attacks.

Similarly, while Shinn does seem to be more close-combat oriented, the point of the Impulse and the Destiny (which was designed in part based on Shinn's experience with the Impulse) is to be flexible at multiple attack ranges.

Neither Athrun nor Shinn would necessarily be hampered with the addition of DRAGOONs. At this point, the main reason not to give them DRAGOONs is simply for marketing purpose.

You guys talking about upgrading Infinite Justice? I have this crazy idea: if Infinite Justice was kept by Athrun in ORB, Rondo Mina Sahaku can grant it the Mirage Colloid/Coloroid system she applied to her Astray Amatsu.
Speed + Melee + Invisibility = OP Justice

Isn't Mina in space? Kira would be closer and he's already related to an Athha.

Yep, she moved to space, but she can always visit . Mainland ORB is/was her home after all. Also, I think Kira already has strong backup (ZAFT), while ORB is still rebuilding its military powers after the heavy loss during the war. Gives more reason for Mina to come and help .

Do you know what she was doing when the Eternal was attacked in Destiny? It's a problem with being a side story character, but technically, Cagalli should've asked (ordered?) Mina to help.

I do remember she's doing something during that time (through references/characters conversations) but I can't remember what exactly. I might need to read side story materials again.
