Anyone else think that Katoki is trying to redo the whole “Endless Waltz” thing?
I mean, look at the designs of the Wing Gundam EW and Wing Zero Custom
They’re the SAME damn Gundam, pretty much! The torso, the legs, the head… the whole damn thing, chief.
They even had stupidly designed wings. One pair looks like they were ripped off a giant robotic chicken, and the other pair… look like the American flag made out of geometric shapes and shit. Mad Geometry up in here.
He may be retconning the whole "Heero Yui took the Wing Zero and turned it into… what he turned it into within a year. Ingnoring things like the months it takes to design, craft, assemble, and fully test single parts, let alone angel wings! And another thing about that completely unnecessary “remodel”… where the hell did Heero get the money for all that shit?! Was there just some spare Gundanium lying around?! And again about Endless Waltz and its dumb story. Heero spent all that time (and money) turning one gundam into effectively another gundam… and then he just sends it into the sun to be destroyed! It’s like me taking a rusted piece of junk, turning it into THIS and at the behest of my white as hell arab friend saying “Oh no! People are walking everywhere now! We don’t need cars anymore! All they do is pollute the air!”, and send it to the damn junkyard. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!:evil:
Now what I’m trying to say here is that Katoki looks like he’s not gonna turn his Wing Zero into the Wing Zero Custom. It looks like maybe Heero will just take the Zero System out of the “Proto” Wing Zero and just put it into the Wing Gundam EW and customize that. What I’m basically saying is that maybe Katoki is trying to say “Hey, look at this, Okawara fan boys! I’m not gonna turn the Wing Zero into the Angel Gundam!”
And there’s also this little gem I found online. It’s a cover I believe to one of the Frozen Teardrop books. And believe you me… I have problems with EW… but they PALE in comparison to Frozen Teardrop. That’s a whole 'nother minefield of shit. But back to the picture, it seems that we may be seeing the Altron Custom… with wings and a scorpion tail thingy on the back! Woo!!!
If he keeps on this path of altering his story and shit to be more respectful of what came before, then I just might show a little more love to Hajime Katoki.
Sorry if this post doesn’t make any sense… I just wanted to vent.
P.S. I’ve since added the 1/144 trans am Arios and Seravee/Seraphim gundamus to my collection.
