Gaiking CG teaser trailer needs more color, less grit

9:00 PM on 03.29.2010 // Josh Tolentino

Look, I know that we don't really see the future the same way now that we did thirty years ago, but there's got to be a better way to modernize classic mecha designs that does not involve sandblasting all the color off and exposing all the interior panels. There's just got to!

That seems to be what's happened with the latest CG Gaiking trailer, which you can see below. Now, I like the rest of what's been done to the design. They managed to preserve the key features like the skull and horns, and that's already more than can be said for the Transformers remake designs. But really, guys, put the paint back on.

What do you think?
