Actually it was Yasuhiko who proposed the changes. He was the animation director of the series. Okawara talked at length about it in one of the interviews a while back. Neither Yas nor Tomino were very friendly with him back then.

Can't really blame Okawara for that though, he was just following 70s toy design norms. The producers proffered the design on the left and even made a Chogokin of it.

He is doing it again with The Origin.

>>15873513
Do you have anymore concept art?

I imagine that the concept phase for 0079 was tomino proposing some gritty VOTOMS like stuff, and bandai wanting to make somthing that looks like Raideen or somthing and after a lot of back and Forth the evtually met in the middle.

Forgot pic. I think this version was a retool to match a bit more closely to the final design. But you can still see all the proportional similarities to the Okawara original design.

All the ones done in grey were proposed by Studio Nue, which is the militaristic style Tomino wanted. The more toyetic designs by Okawara were at the behest of the producers.

So, how much are we willing to bet that this will be a model kit for the 40th anniversary?

The color coordination is bad even compared to stuff like Zambot though. I guess the color scheme is mostly based on Daitarn, but even still it somehow manages to be more colorful.

>bandai

Was not involved with Gundam back then, the toy company funding it was Clover, which specialized in Chogokin figures (back before it became a Bandai staple). Bandai didn't come into the picture until the series was cancelled, but they wanted to make some kits to go with the compilation films.

Never really understood the red colored helmet on the blue and white bodies such as the Zambot, Daitarn and one of the prototype designs of the Gundam

lets all just be glad everything turned out the way it did.

but even designes that made it in and were rather underwhelming, have been salvaged further down the line.
>>
>>15873576
Because it's cool

>>15873654
I love the Origin Z'gok. It looks a lot like the E variant from 0080.
>>
>>15873513
>Defend this Okawarafags.

Well to be honest, the model on the right is shit compared to the one on the left. We got duped by Tomino. He has really shit aesthetic taste.
>>
>>15873654
Huh, looks very similar to the Z'gok E
I dunno, i kinda prefer the original, looks more simple
>>
>>15873579
Looks like goofy old battletech
>>
>>15873513
>original Gundam has a Zeon collar
I also think it's interesting that it has solid swords instead of beam sabers.
>>
>>15873513
The design on the left isn't pretentious shit trying to pretend it's something beyond super robot tripe. Show should've stuck with it maybe then we'd get more actual good Gundam like G instead of the lame teenage edgefest crap like Thunderbolt and Zeta we're buried under.


Anyway everyone should sage this thread. Gundam is pure cancer and absolutely does not belong on /m/.

Okawara is a mecha designer that was employed to designed machines according to the wishes of his employer, in this case Sunrise.

The design on the left would have been the finalized original Gundam without Tomino's intervention, because that was the design that Sunrise wanted.

Ain't Okawara's fault that Sunrise execs had bad taste.
>>
>>15873521
Here.
>>15873528
YAS had a good motive for that. Studio Nue did too much detailed designs, full of little details and so. It would make animating it into a hell of pain in the arse. So he called Okawara, whom which he already worked with, and which he knew could do simpler designs that could be better translated into animation.

Also Tomino DID sketch some mobile suits of his own, which Okawara faithfully polished for him, and then Tomino got pissed because the final version looked too much like his own sketches.

Even though Diaclone wasn't out yet, the initially proposed Mobile Suit designs do resemble the aesthetics of Diaclone real robot designs..
