Mecha Monday: Gundam Week Conclusions, Moar Powah G Gundam


Hey Moar Powah! In case you haven’t noticed, we ran a little special the past week called “Gundam Week.”  We reviewed a lot of Gundam series, and while we didn’t cover them all, we still got many of the big ones out of the way.  We’ll eventually get the rest up in maybe a “Gundam Week Part 2,” as I definitely have things to say about Zeta Gundam, my favorite series, along with Victory Gundam and Char’s Counterattack.  Today’s post features the final designs of most of the Moar Powah! staff in G Gundam style.  Pluffei put up my design, Neo South Korea (second one in top row) last week.  I’ll be giving a little info about each Gundam and why we chose the designs.  I’ll be starting on the top row and move left to right.  And before you ask or get offended, we were trying to make them as stereotypical as possible.

Neo North Korea: Nuclear Grease Gundam

Pilot: Jack Guo

Reason for Design: North Korea is really known for two things: nuclear bombs and mighty Kim Jong-il
