Looks like the Gundams in the movie were people in suits.

So... if the movie's called 'Celestial Being', why does it say '00 Movie Staff' on the guy's shirt?

And the designs look pretty much the same between season 2 and the parody-movie [bar 00R's sword], so I dunno what'd change if they did make CB Movie ver. kits.

They could release a 00-Raiser Celestial Being Movie Ver., which is only different from the regular thing because of the sword. Thanks to the GN-Sword III, we know they can stoop that low. Otherwise, there's movie Trans-AM versions.

A 00-Raiser all done up in gloss blue with a new sword would look pretty cool.

I don't care what any hardcore Otaku or Gundam-nut says about the beautiful Turn A, Turn X, or Harry Ode's MRC-F20 SUMO-- Mead has a lot more artistic merit than most Japanese animators could ever dream of having. This guy's work LITERALLY laid the groundwork for future sci-fi filmmakers dating all the way back to the 50s.

Recognize this? :

Yeah, go ask George Lucas where some of that inspiration came from.

Most (not all) Gundam fans never cease to amaze me. Over the years that I've become a huge mecha fan and more recently, a Gundam fan-- every time I try to get some info on 'Turn A Gundam', there's always some uninformed fanboy spouting off a bunch of nonsense about Syd Mead's design, as if they possess any credentials to be criticizing his work in the first place. And more often than not, these "fans" tend to ask for the Strike Freedom's design to be regurgitated over and over and over and over again. Seriously, how can a fanbase continuously ask for the same aesthetic similarities for 30 straight years? It's ridiculous. Give me the Turn A's design over any of the recent Gundam designs. I'll take it over anything I saw in SEED, 00, or the upcoming Gundam Age.

I bet if the Turn A and Turn X were for any other mecha anime and had a different color scheme, no one would have cried foul. But since it some how deviated from all the mecha cliches in terms of design coming out of Japan, it became an outcast. Give me a break. It's quite obvious the Turn A's design was well ahead of its time... some day, it would get its recognition for being the beautiful machine that it is.

Irrelevant, since I thought the AT-ATs were pretty ugly, no offense.

Thats like saying how can Superman retain the same aesthetic similarities over and over again for 70 straight years? But I don't think its ridiculous.

And nobody would watch it, either. Hell, Turn A was not a market success.

Different, not ahead of its time. And after more than 10 years, its quite obvious that its still ugly.

Thats great. He is also White, English speaking, and a citizen of a country who lived through the heyday of the 50s where cheap science fiction flourished in the largest movie production territory of the world in addition to an overwhelming marketing package. Don't fucking tell me thats not an advantage. If the situation was in reverse today, you'd be saying something different.

No offense taken here, I don't even like 'Star Wars.' But it's a relevant point because the original trilogy is still one of the most influential pieces of work in the entire science fiction medium. But hey, if that doesn't work for you, how about 'Blade Runner'? His set designs alone set the tone for most of those futuristic cities you see in anime today. Don't buy it? Go ask Mamoru Oshii what his main source of influence was for the way he handled the urban settings on both 'Ghost in the Shell' films-- if his opinion doesn't have merit, then whose does?

Quote:

Apples and oranges. I don't particularly care for 'Superman' so I can't attest to what his designs have been over the years. But what I do know is, 'Gundam' has so many different universes and if fans can't be open-minded to the fact to change up the aesthetic of its primary mecha every once in a while, then there IS a glaring problem. It shows a sense of insecurity and a narrow-mind to be open to change. The funniest part is, who requested these unorthodox designs in the first place? Tomino, that's who. The show's original creator, so you're gonna have to can your rhetoric in that regard.

Quote:

Actually, there are plenty of others who thoroughly enjoy the Turn A's design. Remember how I said this show was ahead of its time? That's because it was. It's popularity has slowly increased over the years and has become what us Americans call a "cult classic" to put it in simplified terms.

Quote:

That's because most Gundam fans are narrow-minded and aren't open to change. I always hate reiterating points I made previously, but it's true. If you want that same RX-78-2 design recycled for another 30 years, more power to you, I guess. But people like myself, who appreciate an unorthodox approach for the possibility that it could work, I'd be more open to Syd Mead coming back and doing more designs if asked. I'll take ANY of his artwork over any of the modern Japanese mech designs that are coming out today. Everything looks the same, at least Mead delivered something that's still being discussed by many today.

Quote:

According to who, you? As if the buck stops there? News flash, while Japan may be the primary country where this is all sourced from, they're no the only demographic of people that count. For a show that supposedly doesn't have a market and features mech designs that are "still ugly"-- why is it finally getting licensed by Bandai? Why was the 100th MG the Turn A? Which still has the best pose ability out of any Gundam model that's come out? Surely companies wouldn't put this much effort into a show that's still failing by today's standards. You can hate the design all you want, but like I said, I do research, and judging from the pretty good amount of people that seem to enjoy this "mustache" machine, I would certainly say it was ahead of its time.

Quote:

Except that his work was all self-made, which then allowed him to evolve in the auto market. Your comments are insanely limited in knowledge and shows you probably shouldn't be speaking about this man's history. He got to where he's at on his own two legs alone. There's a reason he's the DEFINITIVE visual futurist.

Someone angry? I guess if I were as erroneously misinformed as you, I'd be looking punch holes in walls, too. I don't know what situation you're refering to 'cause Mead wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth. How about you go watch one of his DVDs before making claims that you have no knowledge of? How about listening to his interviews before cooking up a fallacy to support an argument that isn't there? Fact is, the situation isn't in reverse 'cause there's no situation to speak of. He got to where he is because he's STILL one of the best well-rounded artists working today, worldwide.

Just remember, Syd Mead isn't inspired by anime, but he inspires anime creators. ;-)
