since i'm a hermit and just like doing things with my hands, i've picked up building Gundam models again recently, but i don't watch the shows or know anything about the models. one might say i'm a poser. i literally only build the things that look cool and challenging.

recently this came up in conversation with Ruxin but i've lost contact with him, so now i've got no one to scold me for buying a certain generation or model. i'm pretty sure one of the ones he said sucked was Endless Waltz but i bought one today because the guy looks cool and has a neat weapon.

can i get a crash course from one of you more hermity types so i don't seem like a complete idiot?

edit: Rux, if you're out there, i miss you and love you :(

I’m not too familiar with Gundam as I’ve only saw two series, but one of them was Wing.

Do you want a crash course on why Endless Waltz sucks? What Gundam Wing is about? Why the model sucks?

You're mostly safe with any suit from Universal Century timelines, anything else is hit or miss, depending.

STARDUST MEMORY!!!!!!1!!

Nothin’ like de-orbiting O’Neils into a thankless planet!

That is all.

I do dig Stardust Memory, but man, don't watch it if you're in a dour mood already.

Your references are lost on me, I've only seen G Gundam and Gundam Wing.

I love G Gundam, it's one of my favorite animes ever but Gundam Wing? I.. look, here's a link with my reaction I made on another board.

I legit don't get why people love it so much. I mean, nostalgia, yeah. But nostalgia can only go but so far. :l


PS: I also saw 08th MS Team in the 90's/early 2000's and remember liking it, but I legit can't remember anything about it.

Total cannon fodder, but the Zaku is one of the earliest bad guy designs and it is still one of the best, imho:

Ah models! When I was little my big brother used to take me to comic and sci fi conventions. He was the comic fanatic, not me. I would buy these imported models using saved up lunch money - giant fighting robots like above. No idea what shows they were from... I loved building them though and always wondered how much better they’d be if I could build them now that I’ve developed some patience... and an income. Of course now that I have the patience to take my time, I don’t have the time to take...

I say build what you like, but I found out quite a bit lurking here.
