What if a mobile suit was a Gundam, but also a cop? Hmmm. Sorry, I guess that doesn’t narrow it down. Ok, and ALSO a total chump. No? Still don’t know? Well, it’s the Jegan. One of the many children of the GM project, the Jegan and its many variations are a classic example of how over time, optimization strips the excitement out of design. It’s not a bad robot, by any means. But it’s definitely not exciting either, unless you get really worked up about mobile suits with hand grenades.
