i thought that series was meant to be a sequel to Z/ZZ Gundam but instead was replaced with ZZ Gundam/Char's counter attack right? or even a joke article?

That's incorrect. Take a look at Gundam's very first opening. 'Gundam' was never really supposed to be 'Gandam', the name from that Newtype article was a misspelling.

I'm aware of that. However, I was not asking about the name, but about the picture. What was this plan? A sequel to Zeta or ZZ like DRAGUN H.E.X. guessed or something else?

Heh, you're no fun in pointing some of the more obvious mistake away too early.....

Well, the truth is, it was a joke article of sort from March 1986 since NT was following the trend of publishing fake reports to get fans work up before dropping the real deal.

They manage to come up with 8 pages worth of fake materials before finally admitting that everything was a hoax with 2 pages of article on ZZ. Gotta love the resources they pour into meaningless stuff during the Bubble Economy.

But they manage to release a non-canon voice drama on Tomino's OO in '87 and a manga of O (Outer) Gundam in '88.

I'm so confused. I see a Judau expy and a Leina expy. and a mobile suit with some Zeta Gundam vibes (specifically the backpack and codpiece) with ZZ printed below it. On the second picture I see the Hi Zack's successor, a sister unit to the gundam from the first page (with Hyaku Shiki-like binders), the gundam from the first page, the Methuss's successor, an Argama-like ship, and a Psycho gundam successor (Mk III?). All this leads me to believe this was the original idea for ZZ.

I remember reading somewhere that the ZZ gundam was able to combine and transform because both concepts were popular at the time. Does anyone know if the design team wanted it to be that way, or if this was the result of executive meddling? If it was executive meddling, this might be what we would have gotten instead of ZZ.

I agree with you. Making such articles to prank the readers and fans. Impressive.

Voice drama? That's interesting.

Its rare to find someone in the Gundam forums who doesn't recognise Char.

Even rarer for someone to remember Kycilia lol

More likely that they haven't watched her getting her head blown off? I thought that was memorable honestly.

The most memorable thing about Kycilia for me is that she looked like a ninja with her face covered. For her death I only remembered Char's bazooka lol

The only daughter of the Zabi faimily (UC timeline). She's a bitch I hear.


Also, this is off topic, but I always thought Tilda Swinton would make a good live action Kycilia.

I feel so stupid. I just did an image search to refresh what the masks looked like. For some reason I was convinced that Char's mask was completely white (I think I was thinking of the mask that he wears with a normal suit). And the purple over the eyes reminded me of Kycilia's stupid ninja hood. Please forgive me!

Gundam pilots are known to be rough in the sack. xD Relena's the virginal heroine princess but she can handle it. For a pacifist, she's tough. Also pretty handy with a gun like when she shot at Une in Episode 11.
