Why not a "new translation" of ZZ but without the comical tone AND with only new footage, unlike Zeta please and /!\SPOILER/!\


a remake of Haman's death. I would prefer to see her dies like a "warrior" and not a suicide....


/!\SPOILER/!\


Voila,

Considering how old ZZ is, you shouldn't need a spoiler alert, Se7en, but for the record we DO have spoiler tags.

I definitely wouldn't rule it out. Anytime the term "UC" is thrown around in regards to an upcoming Gundam project, I'd place my money on it largely being a tactic to raise interest in it.

If it is I hope they learned from the last disaster. Otherwise I wouldn't hold my breath...

Bandai should have made one before the Transformers movies.. If they do it now it will be called a Transformers ripoff by everyone even though they have nothing in common..

Well, they did, a decade ago. It was an utter failure, though.

I think "utter failure" is an understatement. The sad thing is that, from a mecha standpoint, the line arts were some of the best I'd ever seen.

Remember in the first transformer, when Sam goes:

It's a robot. You know, like a super advanced robot. It's probably Japanese. Yeah, it's definitely Japanese.

The audience I was with laughed. I think they got the joke. So I dont think people will think its a ripoff. After all, its natural to put Japan and big robots in the same sentence Hell, Transofrmers was originally Japanese anyway.

ZZ doesn't need to be less lighthearted. Maybe make the combat in the begining a bit less comical, but still keep the humour. There's no real problem after a bit before half way. I liked the comedy anyway.

It's funny how series that could benefit from compilation movies never get it. I suppose since it's so old they won't touch it, but V Gundam really is an awesome series.

Its age isn't the problem (Z is older than V, and got re-made into the movies), the stigma that surrounded it's production is. That and the fact that it's probably the most obscure of the Gundam series (it's sort of like the Heaven's Feel of Gundam).

Indeed it was. I think Victory Gundam was so off the UC-scale that it might as well been an AU in the UC timeline.

Sure, but a teaser poster for a major motion picture called "Gundam" with a giant robot on it will definitely raise lots of eyebrows and Transformers is the first thing most people will think of here in the west..

But maybe I'm looking at it from the wrong perspective.. Maybe it is the right time to make a Gundam movie, or at least to make one while Transformerse is still hot..

The similarity (giant robot.. nothing else really..) will definitely get a lot of attention and people might go to the theaters just to check it out. And to realize that it is infinitely better than michael *BOOMMM!!* Bay's Transformers

Yeah, but Gundam is not really about just 1 robot, its alot of robots fighting a large space battle. Ok ok, so sure, 90% of those robots tend to be cannon fodders, but... I am sure the premise it is enough to help potential audiences tell the difference between Transformers and Gundam
