question about the Virsago...

Did the Virsago come out first or the Epyon? Because right now I'm thinking the Virsago is a epyon clone.

Wing came out before X so Virsago is a clone. Basically everything in X is some sort of clone of the Wing ones.

No, only Virsago and Leopard show any legacy towards Wing suits. X has a green chest, but that's it.

The mech design in X is for the most parts awesome. It suffers from the SEED syndrome though - too many awesome grunt suits that don't get to shine .

XX's design got ripped off by a certain CE Gundam though - except with some hip mounted cannons added.

what do mean? Freedom? Looks more like a wing zero rip off to me. But all the main character gundams kinda look alike.

How the hell is Freedom even REMOTELY SIMILAR to Wing Zero?

I do believe your memory is playing tricks on you.

Wing Zero

Freedom

Double X

Freedom and Double X share practically the same torso, the only difference is how a few lines are drawn and the colour composition. The front armour skirt is eerily similar, and if you click on "Twin satellite cannons activated" I'm sure you'll see some more resemblances.

I still remember when someone posted pictures of a heavily modified old 1/100 Double X kit and someone said "Woah, nice custom Freedom" 8).

Also, Freedom and Double X both happen to be very good and appealing designs, while Zero is sorely lacking - but compared to its predecessor it's a gigantic leap forward. Oh, the Wing Gundam is just so incredibly hideous!

Virsago is Epyon and Altron's love child.

(and though pretty remote, you can argue that Epyon is master gundam jr. and shenlong is dragon gundam jr.)

Thank you for that incredibly disturbing mental image.

Now I'm going to have to find some bleach so I can scrub . . . that out of my brain.

I think exactly the same.

Master Gundam is the first gundam with 'Yoda's Ears' lol

for me all the main character gundams look alike. Damn! Freedom and double X are twins. I also think the Aegis looks like the Sazabi. but thats just me.

Unfortunately its so...very very true.

Thats wierd I don't see much of a similarity besides the foldable armour pack. Aesculapis was a tribute to the Z'Gok, everytime I see it in its armour mode I just think 'Gundam Z'Gok'

And I always keep thinking of Freedom as a ripoff kitbash of Double X + F91 VSBR.

F91 VSBR
Double X

But then again when you remember that all 3 MS are credited to the same person.........I guess ripoff isn't the right word is it

The truth is most of the designs used are carry over from one series or the other. So there should be no surprise on the similarities. The best (or should we say the worst) is the Seed and (even worst) Seed Destiny.

Well just think about it like this


how many times can you redesign a basic humanoid design before it either starts getting ridiculous [ Strike Freedom ] or just plain overused.

Umm, if you count the fact that they're both red, then yes.

Other than that the only similarity is that they're both humanoid and have a V-fin on their foreheads.

Seriously man, you need glasses or something.
