As the title implies, this post is all about the Jesta which I think is coming out very soon. I still haven’t watched Gundam UC Episode 3 yet so I don’t know how these guys perform (So NO SPOILERS OF ANY SORT PLEASE!). Well… I certainly hope they don’t turn out like its grunt cousin ReZEL (looks amazingly badass but spends most of its screen time getting shot down). As Ckai pointed out, the Jesta takes a few design cues from Unicorn and you can see it on the knees and shoulders though obviously, these guys are far from being a MP Unicorn. I think I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: I think Gundam UC has the best grunt design in any Gundam series I’ve seen so far; there is just no design that I don’t like coming out of this series. I mean… it’s pretty impressive to get me to like the Jegan (Stark) and any GM variations since I’ve always hated Feddie grunts.
So here’s a question that I have that I’ve asked before about the Jegan ECOAS: How would you describe Jesta’s color scheme?
While the shades of color are consistent enough, different sites show different tones of them. Not sure if I’m using the correct art terms here… ^^;
So if I were to describe it, it is dark teal (upper arms/legs), dark turquoise with some olive green? o_O
But this looks more like LOTOS color or the Jegan ECOAS color. Whatever the case for the color is, I like it! Like the ECOAS and ReZEL, the color scheme of the Jesta is relatively original, sophisticated and is fitting of a military unit; this is very refreshing to look at. Though I want to pick this up, I am almost positive that a MG will probably follow suit next year. Since this suit can’t transform, I don’t have to worry about disappointments like the ReZEL and Delta Plus when it comes out ^^;. Speaking of the Delta Plus, I think I want the HGUC version more than the MG now…
