Cool! Maybe if they'd designed it to look this intimidating, Zeon wouldn't have lost to the Feddies. Then again, who knows how the Gundam would have been designed in response. Hmm...

azix920 was probably goofing, but it isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility in the UC Gundam universe. The Feds had a unit called Blue Destiny that was controlled by the downloaded personality of a comatose Zeon girl. Naturally, the Zeons had their own copy as well.

No need to apologize. Not everybody as read the manga. :)

"Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: The Blue Destiny" is what it's called.

Hmmm, love the chainsaw in the sholder shield, very Madrox 01(anime)ish.

Kunio Okawara would be impressed. I'm digging the chainsaws concealed under the shields. Perhaps they're "heatsaws" using an updated version of the power source of the Heathawk?

Wow, really nicely done sir. I love how you integrated the classic Zaku MG pan drum into the new (spiffy) rifle. Also love how you modified the classic head to look so sinister. And dude, sticking huge-ass chainsaws in the shoulder shields? Inspired, just inspired. Excellent work all around. I applaud!

Cool, thanks! I was working from memory and I don't even know when I last studied a Zaku so I did the best I could while still having fun. I drew an Acroyear from Micronauts last night and did pretty much the same thing. It's neat to work from my memory and then look up the real-deal to see how close I got. Some people like what I do, others get a bit irritated that I take so many liberties with the design. I'm just trying to have fun sketching :)

Is there a space variant because this appears more for land based engagement?

Sorry, had to do it. This is no normal Zaku, though, it's an awesome Zaku! :)

There's so many variants of every mobile suit, who hasn't taken a few liberties with the zaku design? I like your take on it though! Really neat, I personally haven't seen any mobile suits with chainsaws on em, and the original gundam welds a fucking mace. So kudos for finding the one Melee weapon not already used by those wackos at sunrise studios/bandai

ZAKU D.A.W. Custom, so to say :D
I like it, the chainsaw in the shoulder armor is a nice hand-to-hand-combat piece.

I suck at acronyms... it was just a joke pertaining to how utterly bad-assed that Zaku is.
