I could have just titled this "Gunpla!", but that's a little~ too narrow a focus ;3~


Gundam is a merchandising machine. The entire megafranchise exists -- as much as it can pain to be reminded at times -- to push the sale of little plastic models. And then there's the figurines, the wall scrolls, decals, ufo catchers ... you name it, it probably exists or did at one time.

Is there some particular bit of Gundam swag you're fond of? A trend you don't like? Something you really, really wish existed because you'd snap it up in a heartbeat if it did?

How many actual gunpla, if any, do you have? Or is the whole gunpla aspect something not appealing, or maybe you just don't know where to start --?

Now that we know your favorite Gundam, there's another important question that has to be asked:


What is your favorite non-Gundam mobile suit?


Can you narrow it down to one? Is it an aquatic suit? Does it need legs in space? Is it not a Zaku?


Feel free to add pictures or link relevant info.

From manga to gunpla variations to light novels and everything in between, there is a lot of Gundam material that isn't found in any given main anime series in the franchise.


Which brings us to our new discussion topic:

What do you think of the Gundam 'side' materials?


Do you have a favorite, or least favorite? Do you consider it all canon, or only certain parts -- or maybe only for some Gundam universes and not others -- or does it even matter? Are there side-stories you're interested in but haven't read/seen/watched yet?

Lay it all out here!

Now that we know how you got started with all things Gundam, there's another important question that has to be asked:

Which Gundam is your favorite Gundam?

Can you narrow it down to one? One per series? A favorite at a certain skill? One you collect more than others? A favorite one to build kits of?

Feel free to add pictures or link relevant info.




(don't worry, favorite non-Gundam mobile suits will get a later post!)

Our first discussion topic! Yay!

And what better way to kick off than with the question: How did you get started with Gundam?

What was your first series? Did you start with a series, or maybe model kits? Browsed around a little? Maybe it was a fandom-first sort of thing?

If it's beginnings and you, feel free to share here.
