Also, this is an image from the last issue of Gundam Origin:http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Lu4xLT0kR1...c/s1600/44.jpg

The Guncannon has a whole set of fingers, instead of three. It can't be a drawing error can it? Did they change the finger count during the series?

MSG had quite a few tanks and so forth, but the battle scenes are mostly of the Gundam tearing them apart.

Crossbone Gundam question, is Tobia's family name Arronax is a reference to the character professor Arronax from 20000 Leagues Under the Sea?

The Guncannon always had proper hands. Only the Guntank had triple-barrelled machine guns in place of fingers.

I'll say it again. The image I posted is from Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin.

The final Guncannon design in The Origin looks like this: http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/origin/rx-77-1.jpg

Notice how the three fingers in the image are NOT present. The Guncannon has a human like hand, five fingers, just like every other MS.

Why?

Probably because that's Okawara's lineart and it changed from that version to the manga version.

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Nope, at the start of the manga, the Guncannons had three fingers.
Spoiler:


They were probably upgraded sometime before the last battle.

Any chance it could of been a running change? Similar to how Vegeta's hair was brown in his first appearance, but then changed to black?

Where is the Gundam RX-78-2's cockpit actually located? Judging from this photo:
Spoiler:


That seems a bit too spacious and inaccurate for a mecha that's 18 meters tall. That looks like a cockpit for something that's about 6 or 7 meters shorter.

I can't really see the interior.

I always figured the cockpit was located in the lowest blue hatch before the waistline.

Yeah I've been trying to find a better image, but so far that's all that's come up. Either way, the image you posted is still rather inaccurate.

Thanks.

So my assumption of it being in the lowest blue hatch was correct.

Minus the head ornament, Gundam TR-6 (Woundwort-Rah), I think.

Other than that, it has an aerial-y feeling to it. And maybe some sort of shuttle-y element to it that reminds me a bit of Kyrios Gust.
