I am unfamiliar with Gundam as a whole, but I really love the Zaku.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
gundams are ugly

The crazy main character ones yes.  The generic military style one do look neat and they have a standard military style paint job

RX-0's untransformed mode is the best looking Mobile Suit in Gundam.



So why in the hell did they do THIS to it?

Garlemald did nothing wrong.
Tomino may have came in and overhauled the entire genre with Gundam but the marketing strategy never really changed. Shit like Mazinger and Power Ranger mechs appealed to kids and as such sold like hot cakes as toys/figurines. I'll ne honest, five year old me didn't care much about how realistic the mech looked as long as it was somewhat-cool and had some sort of transformation into a robot tiger/jet/tank/whatever.

The Banshee Norn can suck my dick. Why can't we get a Real Grade Banshee so I can graft it's arm cannon and claw onto a Unicorn.
