Trivia

The bright, multicolored Hi-Zack Mobile Suit that makes its appearance inside the colony is called a 'Hobby Hi-Zack' This is a civilian use version of the RMS-106 Hi-Zack used by the Earth Federation and Titans during Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. During Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ, the Neo-Zeon faction also operated ones acquired during their alliance with the Titans and after capturing Earth Federation bases. The one seen in CCA was sold after being stripped of combat equipment and programming and sold to the public. Essentially, it was a surplus sale unit that hobbyists can modify and operate.

COOOOOOOL!!!
20 April 2003 | by mathews-rrSee all my reviews

This is without a doubt the best Gundam ever.I have seen some of the original series but I did not see Zeta Gundam since it was never released in North America(which makes me wonder how people write reviews about it) I think the story could not have worked without Quess. It could have worked without Rezin Schneider, Kayra and Astonage. This is the best movie I ever saw. See it, if the romance annoys you at least you'll like the animation.
