Well, thanks to G Generation World, I’ve just come across a new Gundam type that I must say, I’m quite taken with.
This is the Gundam Striker Custom, which hails from UC 0084. Much like its future cousin, the Gundam Hazel, the Striker Custom is actually a GM Striker with a Gundam class generator installed and a Gundam head unit (that looks a bit like G04’s head mixed with the Ez8’s). The Striker Custom uses a variety of beam melee weapons but unlike its GM chassis name-sake, is fully zero-G capable (hurray for space use!).
Like the Hazel, I really like these types of Gundam units. Basically a souped-up GM that’s fallible, not invincible like some of the later series seem to promote.
In G World, the Gundam Striker Custom packs a major punch, but it has its limits seems it lacks any real long range weapon. Still, its an awesome addition, and I’m glad I stumbled upon it!
