Where to Start - Getting into Gundam

Body: 

As a moderator over at /r/Gundam I often see folks asking how to get into the franchise and what shows to watch. Hopefully this guide will help you along that path.

 

TL;WR?

If you don't have time to go through and read, it's best to pick with one of the below series:  

Mobile Suit Gundam

O

R

Gundam 0080

Gundam 00

G Gundam

Note that the above are in no order of preference or recommendation. Why I think they're four good starting points is detailed below.

If you can't be bothered as to finding out why the above are recommended, or just want me to make the decision for you, then watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam. The full series, all 43 episodes, not the movies.

 

SD 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G - Review on GGIN

Body: 

 

A snippet from the review...

 

In my reviews I try to present the kit as how a proper straight build would look, aka nothing more than some simple nub removal and whatever main stickers are required to ‘finish’ the kit. Since this snap out method is new to me I figured I’d give it a shot. The results, for better or worse, you can see in the photos. All this, though, wraps back to my thoughts regarding SD kits. In my opinion they are both the easiest kits to build, and the hardest.

Perhaps I should explain? SD kits appeal to a very young modeling base. They’re cute, adorable, and very easy to build. No sharp instruments are required, no precision piece fitting. They’re suitable for any age, granted your youngin’ doesn’t like to eat small things. Stickers are easy to apply and most kits aren’t too concerned with fine details. Yet, to achieve those details, that requires a lot of talent.

Gundam 00 Movie - New PV

Body: 

There's a new PV just starting to make the rounds for the new Gundam 00 movie, A wakening of the Trailblazer. It seems a bit early for one, but who cares, this trailer is 100x more exciting than the previous releases I've seen.

Take a look...


Much better shots of the new suits in action, plus the new alien enemy. With such a weak swarm attack it seems they've never seen Matrix: Revolutions.

For whatever reason the paint I applied clips realllly easily. Had to do a lot of touch ups prior to my final top coat. The poses are sort of lack luster because I didn't want to risk causing more damage than there already is. Unfortunately the arm isn't strong enough to hold the huge gun on it's own.
