Dunbine, Gundam, and FSS are pretty high on my list

As well as Patlabor (X-0, Griffon, and Phantom mainly )

The Brain Powered mech is neat, too...

Gunbuster, Zeta Gundam and Qubeley are the top mecha with me. Just going from a firepower standpoint its hard not to like the Ideon, although its among the more ugly mechas out there as essentially a souped up GM :P

Voices of a Distant Star -- All,
Dangaio -- Bloody II (I think), Gil-Gear,
FSS -- MM Auge, MH Jagt Mirage, MH F/Phantoms, Hydra <--which I think is an MH...I can't remember.

All the female mechas in Iczer-1. The original "series". Also, the title is at the tip of my tongue, but I can't seem to say it anyway; Gouf Custom, mainly because of Norris Packard.

Well, I am kind of old school, so some sentimental favorites are the Combat Armors from Dougram (hey, why else would I make a HUGE Dougram section on my site?), Votoms, Orguss, Mospeada, and of course, the original Macross designs from the original series and 'Do You Remember?' movie.

As far as Gundam goes, I think Z Gundam is amazing. Primarily because it was the first real series after the original, and going from Mobile Suit Gundam to Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam blew me away. I still think the Mk II is one of the best mech designs ever. I love the Type 100, Gaplant, Hizack, Marasai, Messala, and a few others. I am not crazy about them all, but I think for it's time the designs are way ahead of their time.

Next up I love the designs from 0083, as I have always like the originals, but I think the re-designed, more modern looking versions of the Zaku and GMs were brilliant.

Next up, 0080. I love all of them. Perfect balance of realism and fantasy. Love the guns too. GM Cold Climate, Commands, and Snipers are my favorite GMs of all time. Love the Zaku FZ.

Of course, the mother of all Gundam series: Gundam Sentinel. I think realistically, these are the kinds of MS you would see in the future, as opposed to simple looking MS with a single clip for their machine gun. These things are big, stick out, and would be easy to target. If they aren't fast and loaded with a crap load of weapons, then I can't see any purpose of them. Plus I love the New Decides suits.

Here and there I like some others. I think the Endless Waltz designs were awesome too, given I HATED the original Gundam Wing designs. Not crazy about the lack of variety of the Oz suits. . . I like some of the Zanscare suits from V Gundam. . .

Some of the worst? Just about all of them from Gundam ZZ, Turn A (the only series I've never bought a kit for), and I'd like to pretend G Gundam never happened. . .

Gasaraki is cool. Love Xabungle (except for the Xabungle and Walker Gallier - which are lame), and think Dunbine are nice too.

That's about it I think. . .

So many...

I love so many Giant robots...O_O;;

My all time favourite Robot ever is, and will always remain, Mazinger Z. I think he's the most fun to watch in action, and his attacks will always be my favourite..As a result, I like the other "Rocket Punch" generation robots... ( Great Mazinger, Grendizer, and I guess Mazinkaiser can be included here..)

I also love Getter Robo, its combination is awesome even if it could never happen, and the whole thing is just so hot-blooded! You can never keep the Getter team down! ( So far, my fave is still the original design, but the New Getter Robo one is pretty close! )

I also liked the Yuusha shows, Espicially GaoGaiGar.

Giant Robo is my favourite show EVER, and I also like the Giant Robot in that, as well as Mitiseru Yokohoma's other stuff ( Mars, Tetsujin 28, ect)

As far as Gundam's go, I like the unique ones. Turn A Gundam has been my favourite show so far, and I really liked Turn X, the Sumo, the Flat, and Turn A himself. I loved all the Gundam shows, but out of the UC Gundams my favourite design has allways been the ReGez, followed by Zeta Gundam and the original Guncannon. I like most of the AC Stuff, Master Gundam my favourite after the Turn A stuff.

Super Robot Wars rocks too! Though the best Robot in there is obvious- DAIZENGAR!!! :D

Nagano’s designs for FSS and L-gaim are all lovely.
anything by Yoji Shinkawa is pure gold.
Kazumi Fujita’s designs in Quovadis2 (sega saturn game) are some of the best I’ve ever seen.

and I’m a sucker for Go Nagai’s super robots :D

Are there any art books for Quo Vadis showing the mecha? How about Quo Vadis 2?
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.
