Most of the TV series Gundam designs were done by Kunio Okawara, while the Tallgeese and other OZ MS were mostly designed by Hajime Katoki. EW MS designs were mostly Katoki designs (Serpent and all the redesigned Gundams as well).

I think they're putting the EW in to let fans know this is based on Katoki's design as opposed to the somewhat simplified TV version. Still the same MS, just with a lot more detail on it. Okawara's good at simple styled MS (the original RX-78, F90, F91, the VOTOMS Scopedogs) but when he tries to put more detail onto them it looks more like an MS-shaped quilt. Katoki is usually better at detailed designs but by god the overdecalization of his designs in kit format (Unicorn, I'm looking at you) are vomit-inducing...
Okawara's TV Gundams are dope though. Katoki's redesigns can't replace them. I'm tired of watching Bandai sucking Katoki's dick all the time when it comes to Wing. Heck, the MG Wing TV is almost like a miracle just for happening. Gundam TV designs are great. They're just waiting for someone to do them right. Well, Robot Damashii already did a great job but we need proper new model kits of the six TV Gundams.

Like I said about Wing Zero’s angel wings and “feathers”, the design is baduy.

There's designs I like Okawara's style better (I f'ng love the F90) and there's designs that Katoki does better (Unicorn). There's also designs that I don't like from Okawara (don't get me started on the Strike Freedom) and designs I don't like from Katoki (I actually hate the Victory Gundam and only have it to complete my main Gundam collection).

Katoki designs just happen to sell more goddang decal sets. And there are times when KAtoki's redesign destroys what made the original design special (Katoki version Exia was a BAD IDEA).

...yep, I'm going to be at this all day if I start criticizing which designs I like and hate....

Not as a model kit. It's a GFF figure.

What I don't like about it: It's too...chunky.

The whole point of Exia is that it's a lean and agile MS intended for close combat. Katoki's take makes it a bit more like a traditional MS but IMHO it doesn't look as sleek.

Back on topic: The Vigna Ghina coming out makes me hope some other MS will pop up in HGUC or RE/100 format. But it still makes me wonder why a few of these haven't already been teased or even discussed, like the Gottrlatan from V Gundam.

I mean yeah, the Gundams are where it's at, but some signature enemy MS really need to be made. The Tallgeese is finally getting a new 1/144 release and has seen MG releases before, but what about others?

Heh, look at this HGUC Unicorn Luminous Crystal. Another example of cases of Bandai botching things up:

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
That's not the kind of hands Unicorn used when stopping the colony laser. The fingers are spread in the anime. Now it looks like Crystal Unicorn is ready to karate-chop something . That's not funny. Didn't the people who made this kit watched the damn movie before printing the mold? The major appeal of Crystal Unicorn kit & figure is to recreate the iconic pose of Banagher/Unicorn tanking the blast, yet Bandai dropped the ball on that .

Unless it has extra pieces you wouldn't be able to do the pose properly anyway; the crystals aren't splaying out from the forearms properly for that pose.

I can accept imperfect psycho crystals/crystallization in a HG Unicorn kit, but failing to make something as simple as properly-opened hands/manipulators is just unforgivable.

unicorn did do kung fu move against that big red ma at the end while on green form (but def not crystal form), maybe they mixed them up.

on the bright side, you can pose the hand piercing pose with this. While it's not right, it would be so damn funny I would imagine

The lettering seems similar to the Gundam 00 series:

The Ogre GN-X is definitely a dope design. I like the mix of 00 and Age, parts. I also wonder if those orange blades are best blades, or if they're like GN Drive condenser material blades.
