Y’all ready for some hot takes?
I actually don’t think this suit’s all it’s cracked up to be. It’s just too similar to the Zaku. It has spikier shoulders, a stupid looking gun hand, and the famous heat whip, and it’s blue. Other than that it’s basically identical to the Zaku. The gun hand just looks bad, and while the heat whip is cool, just adding that doesn’t make enough of a difference to warrant a whole new unit. Now you might think this equates to me talking shit about the encounter between the Gundam and the Gouf in the desert, but I’m not. That whole exchange is great, but it’s not because of the Gouf, it’s because of Ramba Ral, and I think people have merged him and the Gouf together in their heads. 6.5/10, even just giving this thing a different looking head would have gone a long way imo.
