Robots. It is all of us boys’ hobby since the childhood days and perhaps one of the first toys that we begged for our parents to buy from the toy store that we so joyfully entered. We were so attracted by the coolness of the sculpture of the figurine, it’s uniqueness in transforming into a vehicle or beast. Heck, we are so intertwined with robots movies too in our last and current generation with the likes of Terminator, Transformers, Pacific Rim, Power Rangers even the Stormtroopers were considered as robots by me when I first watched Star Wars at the age of 8. But then, there was Gundam, one of the geeks cult hit since the 80s that was born from the land of the rising sun. Those giant mecha robots have been here and still could be found in most toy and hobby stores as it was such a phenomenal hit to anime and cartoon geeks. We have seen a tremendous fair share of the many amazing robot suits but let’s look at some of the best gundam suits that we wished to have as our own.
1) RX-93-v2 Hi-v Gundam
Sporting in a battle armour of white and purple theme, the suit is equipped fin funnels in the shape of a wing, battle-ready with it’s beam rifle, anti beam shield, completed with both new hyper bazooka and hyper mega bazooka launcher.
2) Physalis Gundam
This badass here is armed with an atomic bazooka that was capable destroying nearly the whole Earth Federation Forces with it’s nuclear power. Completed with a beam saber, beam javelin and anti-ship rifle, the Physalis is a force to be reckoned with.
3) Destiny Gundam
Capable of handling close combat and long-ranged battle efficiently, Destiny Gundam is battle-readied with it’s high energy beam rifle and long-range beam cannon, palm beam cannons and a magnificent beam sword.
4) Zeta Gundam
The sharp and sleek design was designed by Camille for producing swifter and faster movements for the suit and to be able to transform into a high aerial plane set with excellent weaponries making it war-worthy suit.
5) Double Zeta Gundam
The Double Zeta may have it’s weakness due to the high power energy used to operate the weapon systems, but it is equipped with destructive weapons comprised of double beam rifle and vulcan gun, high mega cannon, hyper beam saber and a pair of fantastic wing shields.
6) Strike Freedom Gundam
This one of a kind-mean-badass robot right here is complete with a set of heavy arsenal capable of destroying multiple combatants. Sometimes could be referred as overpower by fans, the Strike Freedom weaponry set consists of a super beam saber, high energy beam rifle, multi-phase beam cannon, Super Dragoon mobile weapon wing and a Xiphias 3 Railgun that can be used to fire enemies underwater.
7) Barbatos Gundam
This old guy here maybe a 300 years old relic, but it is perhaps my personal favourite due to it’s physique looks and unique design that looks like if the guy is ready to tear some enemies apart with it’s classic gear of weapons such as a long sword, wire claw, battle axe, long range rifle, a 300mm caliber gun and a 170mm auto cannon.
8) Double X Gundam
A powerful force to be reckoned with, Double X is capable of destroying an island with just a single shot from it’s twin satellite cannon with two hyper beam sabers attached to its hips armour and both the vulcan cannons and chest launchers attached to the main body making it such as versatile suit with unlimited weaponry.
