Hello Gundam fans! I come with a simple question, what is your favorite Mobile Suit from any of the Gundam series? Personally I've always been fond of the MS-06 Zaku II, and quite like the ones shown in Thunderbolt. (Pictured Below)
Tough question, I tend to like the the more "realistic" type of UC Federation mobile suits over the overly complicated/showy 90s/00s stuff like the Wing and SEED designs, personally I think I have to go with the MSV version of the GM Sniper Custom.
I'll also say my favorite variation on the classic original RX-78 is the GP01 Zephyranthesn
It's too hard to decide. I can give a top 5 in no particular order though:
I am very much a mark for the Wing Zero. Particularly the Endless Waltz variant with the cyber-feathers and more angelic appearance.
Similarly, the Serpents from Endless Waltz were pretty stylish and had a nice "powerful mook" look to them. They barely existed in any meaningful capacity but I liked their look.
I want to like most of the Zeta designs a lot more than I do but they all just feel so over-designed and same-y. And yes, I acknowledge that is a really weird perspective for someone who loves Endless Waltz.
That being said: if I am allowed to do a family then I also really like the Zaku and its iterations with special mention for the Gouf (not sure if that is properly considered a Zaku-like but... it is a Zaku-like). They just look menacing and I love the single eye.
Hard to beat the OG Zaku II, such an iconic design. I've always had a fondness for PMX-003 The O. Even though in-canon it was custom built for a specific Newtype pilot the way it's designed feels like it's not meant for someone who's particularly skilled as it has a number of sneaky, almost under-handed advantages. That being said I'm of the opinion that no weapon systems are as cheap and unfair as fin funnels. Also it skis on land which makes it feel like an evolved form of DOMs which I also like. Gundam-wise the lapsed edge lord in me still has some affection for the Deathscythe but even at the time I found it's lack of long-range options kind of disappointing.
GP-02 from 0083, aka metal gear in spaaaaaace! It certianly looks cooler than most bipedal mechs Yoji Shinkawa came up with. Instead of dick laser, it got two beam sabres. Another MGS link it has, its pilot's Japanese voice actor is Akio Ohtsuka, the voice of all Snakes except Liquid throughout the 3D stealth action series. Ironically, this character in 0083 can be described as "a Liquid Snake looking motherfucker".
