Now I admit those designs are leaving a bit to be desired, but let's be sure we give it a chance before passing judgement.

Oh I will be the first to admit I was wrong if they turn out cool and can do neat stuff, but so far the still images have left me with a big case of MEH

It looks very decent after seeing a trailer. It's got classic elements to it, like Astro Boy meets Gundam. I'm actually pretty interested in this now. Also the blog is updated with various images from the official announcement. http://gundamaustralia.blogspot.com/2011/06/new-gundam-series-called-gundam-age.html

Here's the first look at some of the Gundam Age Gunpla, the HGs look horrible to me but the MG and the Mega Size seem to look very decent.

Edit: Added one more image that appears to be the actual HG 1/144 of the Gundam Age....now i'm not sure what to think because that build actually looks alright. Below it is the Mega Size model of Gundam Age. I am able to confirm that both of these images are the correct sizes. An MG has not been showed yet but is in the works.

That actually looks like it might be okay. Yeah, a bit more 'kiddy', but hey, kids' shows can be fun.

I'm excited! (But not in a Big-Kev-die-of-heart-attack kind of way)

Not feeling it.
I know where they are going with it with the more kiddie friendly route, trying to bring new fans into the frey and hook them completely :)
Maybe I will be wrong and it wont suck but I'm not going to hold my breath

Seems that there will be two games based on the series as well.

A card based arcade game (Japan and other Asian regions only) and a RPG style game designed and directed by the guy behind the Professor Layton series and head of Level 5 studios (who are also making the up coming Studio Ghibli game for the PS3 and the 3DS).
No system announced yet but most likely will be on the 3DS going by the studios history and the fact the new animated series is being done by the team behind Imizuma Eleven (who also have ties to Level 5 studios).

Press Conference video above, all in Japanese.

Little more info on the Gunpla side of things, seems this series will launch a new line called the AG line, it's basically First Grade though, and some of the gunpla photos we saw before had these in them. Personally FGs always looked bad so i'm glad those weren't HGs we were looking at. AG Photos below as follows Gundam Age Normal type, Gundam Age-1T Titus, Gundam Age-1S Sparrow, Genoace and Garfan.

After covering all this today, gunpla-wise i've come to a conclusion. I may purchase the HGs just for the sake of custom builds. I see potential in painting and altering some of these to get rid of the 'kiddy' feel to them. I'm glad my initial assessment of the models was of the AG line, on Facebook I made a comment about them being hideous and they were..but for something like a FG, they usually do look pretty terrible. I still see potential in this series especially to hold me over for our REAL Gundam, which is Gundam Unicorn. Let's not forget we still have our own series, oh and Gundam Guy announced on his blog there is another announcement forthcoming and the image concerns the RX-78-2 Gundam, so i'm not entirely sure what's going on there, will keep track of it.

hmm well after going through all the info posted here and on gundam guy i can say im not a fan of the suit designs at all except for the UE ones they look kool they also look like zoids lol

the gage-ing this where you plus them into the haru (i think) and play little games is kool from the tech geek that i am

the anime does look oook if you can look past the slight kiddyness but still all im thinking is thank god ive not yet watched seed/destiny or 00 never mind all the older series, they should tide me over till a newer new series hits

So, I'm confused. Are all of the three generation characters (grandfather/father/son) all on the show at the same time? Why do the character designs I saw all look the same age?
