Can't wait to see the new GoL chapter and more of Sandrock with it's "new" armor.

It looks like Sandrock casts off its armor to reveal the form we already have artwork of, just before turning to fight Heavyarms, so on the model I'm guessing (if they even have it) the armor'll be an accessory kit maybe, or just removable/interchangeable. BTW the armor resembles the Maguanac MS's armor, so I'm guessing it color matches.

I got nothin'.

Anyway, if I'm not mistaken (and I don't believe I am because I'm comparing it with the original TV version's art), the Maguanac's MS have also been redesigned by Katoki. Or at least Rashid's has been. It's a lot more pointy and angular all over, with 'rock-like' pointy clastic pieces (to match Sandrock's more clastic-looking redesign I presume).

(Uploading some photos now, btw)

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.

That pretty much sums up all of the FT designs, yes.

@Deacon Page 47 of the Tokyopop release. The lines from Zechs are:

Lady Une, if I'm going to investigate, I need a codename. How about "Wind" for putting out a fire? I'll also be needing an MS. What about Treize's last suit, "Tomboy?"

Both code names are in quotation marks in the page.

@Kit Man, that new Heero picture from Ogasawara looks kinda perv facey. 8| Like he's pointing the gun at someone he's knocked down and is about to knock up. ^_^;

The winged image of Heero is awesome though. He's always molting.

OMFG, do want the custom model with the chibis on it! NGL. Damn... Pretty Epyon is pretty. *_*

As for FT, we seem to be running into an abundance of braids... Hilde has some nice duds though. Wish I could see her necklace better. She pulls off sexy badass librarian really well.

And aw...at father-son and father-daughter time. THose kids are going to grow up a bit messed up but, hey, awesome parents?

Tomboy isn't really a good translation for that word... it means "unmanageable girl, shrew, bitch or stubborn tomboy", etc. It's commonly used for じゃじゃ馬馴らし which is "The Taming of the Shrew".

Lord... that manga is all sorta of wrong from TP lol. Zechs says nothing about investigate...

"Lady Une, I'd like a Preventer codename. If I may suggest, I'd like the name Wind; appropriate for one who puts out fires."

Thanks Kit.

I'm liking Maguanac Rashid Ver. Ka.

Looks to be another unceremonious death for Walker.

Actually, April 7th is the day Mobile Suit Gundam was aired in Japan. So we can say Happy birthday to the original gundam series too.

An idle thought:

I look forward to seeing how they explain the changes in appearance in some of the suits between their Ka versions- specifically Heavyarms. Heavyarms Ka is still, coloring wise, very similar to Heavyarms TV.
When we got Heavyarms Kai ver. Ka, it was completely different from the TV versions in coloring and many details, but we could explain it away with 'well, it's a retcon'. But, now that we see that original Heavyarms Ka still differs so much from Kai Custom even though it's an upgrade and not really a totally different suit (like D-Hell or Altron or Wing ZERO)... They've got some explaining to do.

Sandrock didn't change nearly as much, so I don't think it'll be in the same boat..
