    1. Let's be real people ... it's either the gundam mk II , chars zaku II , zeta gundam , or unicorn gundam ...

      Delete
    2. How about, screw those Cosmic and 00 MS. I'd like to see Wing Gundam, Sazabi or Nu Gundam.

      Delete
    3. I would love to see 00 gundam with its amazing full scale GN drives in real life. Also the 00 gundam head and body design is one of the best.

      Delete
    4. An Exia or any 00 would be great, a full armor gundam unicorn would also be cool.

      Delete
  2. Gundam or mobile suit? I would love to choose a MA, like the Neo Zeong just for the laughs.

  4. wing gundam or tallgeese plz

  5. I would like to see the wing gundam zero custom (Katoki's one) since it is the most beautiful gundam ever! Or at least Exia gundam because it is the more realistic one... Something like that! :)

    1. With those wings, the wind may easily knock it over.

    2. Wait...did you just say exia because it's the most realistic?

    1. With a multicolor Psycoframe sometimes red others Green.

  9. Char's Zaku is too predictable. While I love Zeon grunts, I'd rather them surprise us with something different - Wing, Exia, Nu, Unicorn (lol), Sazabi (lolololol).

    1. Somethung different: Bearguy!! XD

      Delete
  10. Come on ZAKU 3.0!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. They are already doing Char's Zaku, but i think Unicorn or Exia would be a great choice. Anything with wings would be to much in regards to wind.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah I hadn't really considered the wing part. Having giant frail wings spread 60 feet in the air is just a disaster waiting to happen. Maybe if they were folded up, but then what's the point.

      Delete
    2. yup, i think unicorn gundam (that can transform from unicorn to destroy mode) is a better suggestion :D

      Delete
  12. guys choose the first original gundam rx78-2 as for u know it was the first gundam

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hmmmmm....what?

      Delete
    2. How are you this stupid? Or are you just a massive troll?

      @everyone else: They're already make a life sized Zaku in a repair bay for an amusement park. It won't be there forever but still unlikely they'll make one now.

      Delete
  13. Neo zeong will do

    ReplyDelete
  14. ORB-01 Akatsuki, which made by pure gold haha~

    1. that would beawesome.

      Delete
  15. I'll go with the obvious Char's zaku II. The RX-78-2 needs its rival. Other gundams would be cool as well, but the ones with large backpacks would hard to do with weight and balance issues and such.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nu Gundam wa datte ja nai!

  17. 00 Raiser................. so not happening XP

  18. GP01, exia, wing, strike, Victory, turnA
    And for laughs anime acurate 1/1 scale build strikeXD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But in the anime it is a 1/144 scale model kit so anime accurate would be the size of 1/144 scale model kit

      Delete
    2. That's why it's for laughs.

      Delete
  19. А Sinanju would kill it. :}

    ReplyDelete
  20. lol how about the new Reconguista thing

    ReplyDelete
  21. Psycho gundam!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's a Gundam, so Zaku is definitely out of the picture. Maybe the next Gundam is a RX-78-2 which can move with basic movements like walking. Shingeki no Gundam!

    ReplyDelete
  23. nether gundam
    okay, sorry...

  24. SamuraiNinjaFusionMarch 20, 2014 at 7:28 PM

    If they make another Gundam statue, I think it should definitely be the Dendrobium, Full Armor Unicorn, or if they want to scare all the little children the Exia Repair 1.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What about the gundam from the new anime?
    Maybe they will do that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Please don't just a statue that only it's head can turn around..make e real one! That can move all it's parts..lolololol..so the most realistic suit will be ground type..xixixixixi..ane GM will works..eace bro

  29. Zeta Gundam, of course. The best series should be represented up there.

  30. I think if it would move, anything with a huge backpack is out of the question. Sorry SEED.

  35. Plot twist: the second full 1:1 scale is a remold and we get the G3.
    Whatever they do I hope they make golf carts that look like 1:1 Balls to go around the park with.

  36. Just make a shopping centre that looks like White Base.

  37. Turn A Gundam or the DX gundam

  38. green zaku II grunt, char's zaku would be too predictable. and pink.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Come on sazabi... or nightingale... or turn x, jk it's probably gonna be strike or exia or a zaku seeing as how they are popular

    ReplyDelete
  40. A 1/1 Scale Zeta Gundam would be cool.

  41. It's gonna be AGE-1 Normal, I'm sure of it! I swear!

  43. a transforming unicorn gundam imo

    ReplyDelete
  44. 2019...? Wouldn't that be the 30th anniversary of war in the pocket? If so, Rx-78 Nt-1 would be a wise guess wouldn't it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Or the 25th anniversary of G Gundam. So maybe a Shining or God/Burning Gundam? My bets are on Char's Zaku II though.

      Delete
  45. Zeta Gundam or Qubeley

    ReplyDelete
  46. Turn a for sure

    ReplyDelete
  47. So they are going to make it move? Actually, that doesn't sound like a bad idea. That sounds more interesting than announcing a different MS or something.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Replica? I think they seriously want to build real movable Gundam and wage war on others LOL

    ReplyDelete
  49. Is it intentionally that G.G. misspelled the name of both person?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Glad to see Japan's finally starting to build a robot army. >_<

    ReplyDelete
  51. If they are hiring mechanical engineers, I am soooo in!

    ReplyDelete
  52. seriously? no votes and loves for prototype rx-78-1? I'd root for that.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Right now they are only asking the public to help them figure out how to make it move. They don't even know if they will be able to.

    The whole press conference in a nutshell:

    -wouldn't it be cool if the Gundam moved
    -help us because we don't know how to do make the Gundam move
    -some 3rd grade PowerPoint presentations of robots in the past and some Gundam history
    -joking about other people ripping off Gundam

    They literally had nothing planned or anything to show. This was a debacle.

  54. Nothing two legged.

  57. I told you before Neo Zeong is just a vessel..... for the real RX-78-2

    Since Jap's government cannot fund it due to debts, money gained from model kits will fund the real Gundam.

    I wonder if they'll use a material with equal strength to the luna-titanium alloy (that can withstand guns / bazookas etc of course)
    Remember the movie "Jingle all the way" where the Turbo man suit acts like the real thing? hopefully we'll get the same experience

    I hope they'll apply magnetic coating for this unit so it can move freely hehehe.....

    ReplyDelete
  58. Gundam has issues that I can not overcome.

    For example, the machines being never locked up and always get stolen by any random boy without authorization ID/keys or whatever, which is impossible for an advanced equipment. Let alone the fact that in that advanced stage of technology there will be no need for human pilots, and that humanoid form for a robot is ridiculously nonsensical in its impracticality.

    I could understand many people from 1960s being absolutely clueless about technology and the routes it will take in the future, but now, in 2010s, every sane person knows that there is nothing scientific (remember the genre is “sci-fi”? Strike the “sci” part) about those giant robots concept. Those machines will be never built in any other form than for amusement parks, so viewers have a harder time buying the whole thing as even remotely believable.

    ReplyDelete
  59. how about the unexpected the mobile zudah the "competitor" against the Zaku it would be incredible and unexpected to see it unveiled beside the original RX-78-2 as a surprise "encounter"

    ReplyDelete
  60. maybe..they will make the same gundam (RX-78) that can move.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I suggest a Gundam Mk II that can walk, turn, and pretty much anything a mobile suit can do. Except for all the jumping and flying and blowing stuff up, because this project is clearly just to prove that it can be done, not for warfare. Oh! It should also feature the movable frame system, like the real Mk II so that it uses less materials and is lighter. Basically build a skeleton with all the equipment, fuel, thrusters, etc. and add the armor where it's needed.

    Now all we need to do is discover some way to make beam weaponry a reality and we're all set to make the future awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  62. so they're trying to make gundam move as a robot (move automatically?) instead of controlled by human inside , i mean controlling it like a tank or piloting a jet plane?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Tequila Gundam, just for the lulz. If you haven't heard of it, you clearly need to watch G Gundam.
