User dragonass31 of Pockyland has built an excellent pair of Mobile Suit’s from the Original Video Animation series, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team.

While LEGO has yet to support a Gundam set, Mega Bloks did produce a small line of Mobile Suits (which are unfortunately no longer available) a few years ago.
