Who are ALL the mecha designers?

Post by Grebo Guru » Sat Nov 27, 2004 6:25 am

Who have we got? Id love to see everyone here help compile a list of every mecha designer we can think of. Each name should have at least one project he worked on. Obviously, it wont be necessary to list every porject they did...

To begin with:

Hajime Katoki (Gundam Sentinel, Gundam Fix)
Kunio Okawara (VOTOMs, Dougram)
Mamoru Nagano (L-Gaim, Five Star Stories)
Kenki Fujioka (Advance of Zeta, Medarot Navi)
etc...

So, who wants to add to the list?

Yutaka Izubuchi (Chars counterattack, Gasaraki, Patlabor)
Shoji Kawamori (SDF Macross, Gundam 0083)
Syd Mead (Turn A Gundam, hawhaw I liked it so sue me :P)
Mahiro Maeda (also Turn A)

Otherwise we already have a pretty nice extensive list of designers here on the gearsonline site.

Yuuichi Hasegawa (Crossbone Gundam, MAPS, Dai-Sword)

PS.Dai-Sword is manga serie about group of students who get lost in another dimension, feature magical mech called "God's Force" that can transform into weapon. (Dai-Sword, the main mech can transform into giant sword and dragon.) As much as I known, this serie isn't finish yet...

lets not forget Syd's seminal design work for american movies such as Alien and Blade Runner. Turn A was frankly, bizarre. Did Mahiro Maeda design the Cannon Illefuto, cuz i knew that wasnt a Syd Mead design (it is after all, basically a guncannon/GM Cannon

Shotaro Ishinomori (classic Kamen Rider serie, Cyborg 009, Kikaider, Robot Detective K. Most notable giant mecha should be King Dark from Kamen Rider X.)
Eiji Tsuburaya (Ultraman serie, most notable mecha should be King Joe from Ultraseven...)
