And let's not forget the Re-GZ and Sazabi too.

i honestly like these.

they all have box tits and the middle one has a coffin torso

How are the Re-GZ and Nu supposed to move their elbows forward

>Implying the chad Nu and ReGZ need pathetic soyboy "articulation"

There are some things like the backpack and the legs that I like. But then there's the vents within vents, the completely flat chest and the godawful shoulders that just ruin it. I like the Re-Gz's booster as an idea, sorta reminds me of the Psycho Zaku's booster. The Sazabi should die in a fire
>>
>>16170269
They'd make for cool powered armor designs honestly.
>>
>>16170437

I appreciate what this Sazabi was going for since it seems like it was trying to combine the original Zaku II with elements of the Qubeley. The proportions don't work well with it though and that generic knight helmet is kind of whack.

Nice filename btw

I always thought Hi-Streamer's art had this sorta western sci-fi aesthetic to it (for its time, it's a retro sci-fi look now).

I wonder if that's what they were going for.

Was the G-exes and the G-Bouncer a reference to this? no spoilers pls
>>
>>16170731
Nothing references Hi Streamers, ever... Sadly.
>>
>>16170269
The artist starts drawing from the head down, gets bored around waist level, and just copy-pastes the usual legs at the end.

They are all homages to Tomino's original vision of an all white Gundam.

>>16171517

Doesn't look particularly like the V2 to me. The cockpit section is similar I guess, but it reminds me more of the Double X. Though it's not that close to it either. Still, the facial ornamentation, the chest machine guns, the legs etc are reminiscent of it.
>>
>>16170998
Agreed. Unicorn may be ass, but the Gundam's all white, marble like Unicorn Mode is dope as hell.
>>
>>16170034
That is the second ugliest Gundam i have ever seen.
The head is nice, but that body looks like a Go-Bot.

I was going to google an image to prove you wrong only to discover you are kind of right...
>>

Fanart. Not official let alone true to original art designs.
>>
>>16171747
Wrong on both counts, retard.
>>
>>16171890

They're fanart attempts at the original designs from Animage. There were no published Mecha suits for the HiStreamer novel.
>>
>>16171424
so you want a nu gundam that you can show?
>>
>>16172157
looks pretty close to what's shown here
>>16170492
>>
>>16170731
No, the G-type units in age are simply so that they can sell more gundam like units instead of a grunt
>>
>>16170731

> G-Bouncer
> a mono colored custom unit clearly based on and similar to a Gundam with wing binders and the appropriate face piloted by a mentor to an angry and troubled youth

Pretty sure the G-Bouncer is based on the Hyaku Shiki, not the Hi-Streamers version of Nu. The G-Exes is probably just a backwards design of it to lead in to it.
>>
>>16175316
>based on the Hyaku Shiki
That's what I first figured but upon seeing the Hi-Streamer Nu, I had second thoughts.
>>
>>16175364

There's no real reason it couldn't be both, but (a) I know which is more likely to be the primary inspiration and (b) there's very little to indicate that the Hi-Streamers Nu is an inspiration beyond the all white color scheme. And that's pretty generic, as well as possibly being a reference to the G3 and Tomino's original desire for the Gundam to be all white, like the Hi-Streamers Nu itself apparently is. Or it could just be the designer wanting a different color than gold and choosing white with no reference in mind.
