Fujita had nothing to do with Xi or Penelope. Only the Messer & Gustav were redesigned by him.

The white chest was better, the classic tricolor scheme just looks goofy on the xi

>>21039982
it's got the right spirit, but the man-103 and amberil really smacks it out of the park
>>21040662
zeta's pretty innovative with it's transformation into a more creative shuttle/experimental jet hybrid
victory is pretty damn clever as well looking deceptively basic at first, but then having the multiple segmented mechanics of something like the double zeta mixed with all the booster shenanigans of the 78-2 at a much smaller scale while still retaining it's sleek appearance
>>
>>
>>21040662
>>21040787
The Turn A, Zeta, and Barbatos are probably the most outwardly imaginative and striking designs.
Though I also find the Strike, Exia, F91, and Victory to be just as thoughtful, but they're a lot more subtle in what they do.
It isn't until I looked at the strike's databooks I started to get a glimpse of that.

I've considered making a thread where i edit out all the features i dislike on common mechs to "improve" them
but i think it would just piss a lot of people off

Genuinely better than the normal Turn A and anyone who says otherwise is simply wrong

to clarify, the most innovative lead Gundam designs, as far as I can deduce, would be the Zeta, the Turn A, and the Xi (the novel version)
Exia is innovative somewhat, yes, but not as much as these three. It’s an atrocity that all the season 2 designs had face vents; I can’t stand when a design is neutered by the requirement of a typical “Gundam face” when the whole purpose of a Gundam is to stand out. How can it be like a Gundam if it does not stand out even among its peers? Even the F91 had a secret, unique face. Though, I wish that face was not hidden.
the Victory is a good improvement on the original design, but the Strike is a step backwards. It is “2000s edge” in the most literal way, since all they did was add more edges to the 78 design. It is the platonic opposite of the Nu.

The Strike Gundam is far from a step backwards and it isn't just "2000s edge", that kind of shallow observation really misunderstands what it is.
It rethinks the RX-78's design by taking heavy inspiration from not just industrial design trends of the time but it's also just being a much more mechanically conscious Gundam design.
And it's the first to really do so.
A lot of the details are lost on most Gundam fans because they're not familiar with that field, but after I started studying industrial design the Strike became one of the most interesting to me.
It's probably the most "realistically" designed Gundam to date.

>industrial design loser thinks he understands robotics and mechanical engineering
Like clockwork. Fags like you are the reason we get shitty designs in series but they claim it's "realistic."
>>
>>21046815
Realism alone doesn’t have merit. If realism is the ultimate goal of fiction then all it could ever be is an imitation of reality.
There’s nothing wrong with using modern design philosophies though, but the problem is using them as an excuse for bad design.
The designs in Kyoukai Senki are by Ken Okuyama, and they still stand out despite being based on modern design philosophies, they clearly aren’t ripoffs of other designs.
What’s the excuse with the Strike? Obviously, with your statements excusing it not being logical, we go back to the original claim, that it is the “edgy 2000s” version of the RX-78, and not a truly innovative design. If anything the design conventions of the 2000s being so edgy just contributes more to that conclusion.

>the design conventions of the 2000s being so edgy
I don't know what edgy is to you, but that's far from how I'd describe early 00s design trends, and definitely not in the world of industrial design.

>>21046879
Industrial design, mechanical engineering and robotics are heavily intertwined.
You have no idea what you're talking about stop pretending.
>>
>>21046956
Wow so no engagement with anything I said.
Glad you agree that the Strike is edgy 2000s garbage since you posted an image of a cadillac with the absolute maximum amount of edges possible.
>you don’t know what ur talking about :P
ironic

>>21037083
The fight scenes were really dark, I get what they were going for but the action really doesn't register correctly.
>>
>>21046956
>industrial designer pretending he's anything more than marketing and PR designs
Shut the fuck up faggot. You don't do anything with regards to mechanical engineering. You don't design machines, you don't build them, you don't construct anything, you make the consumer skin after everything is done.

>>21037714
The ZZ had a bunch of great ideas but it was always a bit too wide for my liking with all its details. Maybe ditch the red thingamabobs on the arms and this is a perfect Gundam

the Xi Gundam, left is the Kotaki original redesign in the early 2000s and the right is the Katoki second redesign for the Gundam Hathaway movie

the original Xi Gundam designer is Yasuhiro Moriki who made Hades Project Zeorymer
>>
>>21047576
the original Katoki redesing from the early 2000s has a missile booster and also two beam cannons in the shoulder area something that I think the Gundam Hathaway second redesign will omit as the original design for the novel did not have them
