Original mechanical designer Akutsu talks
New Age Gundam Geminass 01
With regard to G-UNIT, at the beginning of the project, it was in a state where it was not possible to determine which worldview the work originated from. Therefore, it was designed as a completely different system that does not look like any MS in the world view.
In this commercialization, we have restructured it in a sense from the standpoint of Gaiden in “New Mobile Report Gundam Wing”. The form is also slim as it is close to the Endless Waltz.
This may be different, but if you like the old G-UNIT, please use the old kit. For those who have entered the “SD Gundam G-Generation Series” or a new cartoon, I hope that you will be able to experience this kit, which has the same form as the Wing Gundam. Of course, I also want people who have loved it for a long time to come in contact with it.
In that sense, the action scenes in the “SD Gundam G Generation Series” are so wonderful that I can only thank them for giving life to the characters without animation. I would be happy if people who fell in love with it would be interested, “What is G-UNIT?”
