I don't have a lot of images like that for Ideon but there are a few. The Ideon was designed by Okawara Kunio but the image above is by Akitaka Mika. I pulled that and one other out of a Super Robot Wars art book.

It looks like a oversized GM though :P , but insanely powerful.

Ha ha! Yeah, it does look like an oversized GM. Okawara went to work on Ideon soon after finishing Gundam. Heck, they may have both been in production at the same time.

It is insanely powerful. It's impossible to settle an argument like this but there are those who claim the Ideon is the most powerful mecha in anime. When its power level is high it can destroy areas larger than planets.

Ideon is also an interesting series because of the strong similarities it has to Neon Genesis Evangelion.

The GM comparison is a common thing.In one of the SRW games there's a scene in the pilots room of one of the ships,where Amuro Rei hurts the Ideon pilots feelings by calling the Ideon "The big GM".The comparisons of EVA are also common because the creaters of EVA admit they were heavily influenced by Ideon.

Yeah I think they said they were most influenced by Ideon and Devilman.

Those who are curious can peek at this preview. The Terran and Buff Clan sections will follow in the days ahead.

I'm in a tough spot. My book with information on Ideon vehicles is packed away in Idaho. All I've got is the pictures and a few random bits of info. I'll finish things as best I can for now. If anyone has any Ideon information, please let me know.

Well, it's down for now. I'll clean up the facts when I can get that book.
