One difference is that Gunpla really is a very integral part of Gundam, to the point where the original Mobile Suit Gundam only survived financially because of the toys, right up until the reruns and movies. And every Gundam TV series has had Gunpla as an agenda - find me a Gundam TV series that doesn't have a tie-in Gunpla line when it aired.

I won't lie though.... if Gundam was simply reduced to being a toyline, I'd be just as upset as well. However, I don't think I'd be as invested in Gundam as I am now if not for the Gunpla, and so a series that pays tribute to the large Gundam community that is also in it for the models is something that's welcome to me. Do note how people were up in arms when they thought AGE was gonna be about card games (a thankfully disproven notion), but the same people received Gunpla Builders very well.

Besides, Gundam always has had something for everybody, why not the Gunpla crowd? For your fix of a serious Gundam, there's still the final Unicorn episode and the upcoming Gundam: The Origin.

I wonder how would a gundam series about magical girls and cards be received... It might not even need to be Urobutcher grim to be deep.

There's not really a might about it. You don't need to be grim to be "deep"; you just need to know what you're talking about. Which... is far easier said that done.

No Guntank? Awe.Still, the idea of a Gundam Tank sounds manly and rather fun.

I don't mean to nitpick, and I know that flat is justice, but why the hell talk about how reserved is someone's chest in a post about mecha?

Yūichi Nakamura (Guilty Crown, Zettai Karen Children) will play Ricardo Fellini, a regular competitor at the Gundam plastic model championship, and the representative for Italy. His other name is “Italy's Dandy Man.” After arriving in Japan after traveling around the entire world, he has a fateful meeting with Reiji. His hobby is searching for girls to hit on using Gundam plastic models, and he boasts that it has an 80% rate of success.
..... Say what?

Which Bandai would countersue for stealing SEED and Destiny designs.

Which I could countercountersue for stealing my homebaked Gundam Mashin concept as Striker packs back in 2001.

Which Toei would then sue me for stealing Liger Zero's Change Armor System in 1999.

"Revenge will just lead to revenge."



But I guess this is why I'm very accepting of Build Fighters. Its one of my many childhood dreams made reality.
