Gundam 00 - Confirmed!

From Gunota Headlines, richest updates on the upcoming Gundam anime, Gundam 00. Details of the four main characters and four main Gundams were announced.

Although the website didn't confirm who's piloting which Gundam, it is quite obvious that there's a match in terms of color between the pilot suits and the Gundams. So, I assume that's how the producers want the audience to difference between them.

In my opinion, Lockon Stratos resembles quite a bit of Mwu La Fllaga from SEED, the oldest of the team, as well as the team leader. He should be assuming the role of team's big brother like Mwu on Archangel. Also, a girl piloting a bulky defense Gundam, that should be interesting.

Not only are the characters and Gundams were reviewed, a whole array of merchandises are lining up for you to think about as well. HCM-Pro Gundam Exia (September, 2,300 yen) and Gundam Dynames (October, 2,300 yen) are among the first few with definite release dates and prices. Some of these Gundams will also be made in MSIA and 00 Region (similar to Cosmic Region I suppose) figures as well, plus some more other product lines I'm not too sure of. Check out Gunota for the full report.

So much details some three months away from the actual anime itself. Looks like Gundam 00 is going to be mighty huge!
