This would be the winner.

It's from the G-Savoir PS2 game.

Is there anything to watch between Zeta and Char's Counterattack except ZZ?
Because I don't want to watch ZZ.

No, unless you don't mind reading.

In that case read Gundam Sentinel. There's a torrent for it on bakabt.

I wonder if bandai/sunrise ever plans on releasing 00 on blu ray over here in the states. I already own half of the series on DVD and Im waiting to own the other half on blu ray but they are taking to long. =\

I haven't heard anything about an actual Blu-Ray release. I know they're releasing the movie on Blu-Ray, but the TV series will only be on regular DVD, it seems.

Would any of you know where to find the line art for the Origin Gouf and Zaku 1?

MAHQ doesn't have them, I was really digging the changes and was eager to see what those looked like, but alas...

I've been slowly working my way through the Gundam franchise in chronological order and I watched Igloo 2 last night and really enjoyed it. The first episode with AT missile teams pressed into service against mobile suits was great to watch. The producers really did their research on wire guided missiles.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if any other of Gundam series feature infantry or tanks fighting mobile suits to the same extent as those found in Igloo?

To further elaborate on Kuroi's explanation, it's not so much of the Kshatriya's weight itself, but a combination of that and the colony's artificially generated gravity.

What about Gundam 08th MS Team? I know they aren't as prevalent as they are in Igloo, but I believe I recall a couple instances where tanks are involved in battle.

There was an episode where the EZ8 Gundam took on a magella tank squadron wasn't there?

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 it’s 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.
