    Why is there so few Zeon MG Mobile Suits avalible?

    Bandai can make a Million Master grade Strike variants. But we cant get a decent selection of Master grade Zeon suits?

    Whats up with that?

    It gets even worse when you look at the RG line. I think the count is (not counting P-Bandia, which are just recolored kits that we already have) there are 5 Zeon to 30+ Fedi. Yup them some fair odds. Well 6 if you want to technically count the MK II Titans but for actual ZEON only 5.
    Johnny Ridden ZAKU. (Nov. Release)
    CHAR ZAKU
    the green ZAKU
    Sinaju
    CHARs Z'GOK
    and if you need to
    MK II Titans

    That's it.

    But it is an even bigger insult when you really look at it. Of the ZEON RG 3 of them are actually the same damn suit! Red ZAKU, green ZAKU, and now Joynny Ridden yup another red ZAKU. So in all reality we only have 3 actual ZEON kits. Super fair Bandia, super nice. Thanks for nothing.

    Because the strike is more popular than the zeon suits.

    There are 48 Zeon designs out of 198 MG kits. That is almost a quarter of the entire MG line.

    If Newtypes can predict the future, and feel their opponents intentions, how come none of them were ever able to dodge the Bright Slap?

    Re: Why is there so few Zeon MG Mobile Suits avalible?

    The problem with those numbers is they are skewed and it is on both sides. Of the 48 ZEON how many are ZAKU? Very time they change one little thing it is a "New Kit" ZAKU minelayer, space high mobility, yadda, yadda, yadda. So that knocks the number down. But the same can be said of the RX-78. They are on what ver3.0 now? Plus now the origin version. Then of course if they change the color on a panel we'll there is a "New Kit"
    The difference is yes they are still making ZEON kits but just reissuing old kits. When was the last time a ZEON kit got a true upgrade? The ZAKU II 2.0? How long ago was that?

    But let's be honest here the show is based off of the "GUNDAM " not the ZAKU. It is Mobile Suit Gundam not Mobile Suit ZAKU. So the "Main Hero" gets the majority of the lime light.

    If you like Rainbows, Unicorn's and Butterfly wing's than yeah the Federations for you...

    But I for one prefer the Zeon suits. They are odd, funky, and unique looking designs that I simply love.

    Yall just like the 1 eyed, 1 horned, flying, purple, people eater.

    The last zeke was Psycho Zaku, before that, Sazabi ver ka, and the Geara Doga. Don't forget we had both build fighters series, g-reco, and IBO in the last 4 years, and they don't tend to do old stuff while they are actively working on new series.

    But the new stuff tends to be just sooo TERRIBLE.

    I like the Thunderbolt and Origin stuff but other than that. I honestly don't feel like we haven't gotten any good new MS in years.

    Agreed... I do like some designs from Reconguista, and the occasional suit from IBO, But alot of them don't catch my fancy. I just don't like Ippei Gyuobu as a Mecha designer, especially for MS.
    Oh well. What ever happens, happens.

    What ever you're looking for, it's always in the last place you look.
