RGM-89n Jegan Custom by Tekka-Croe RGM-89n Jegan Custom by Tekka-Croe
LOG ENTRY: DECEMBER 3, UC 93

Today, I received a letter of assignment to Captain Wolfgang's squadron. Initially, I was rather excited by this, as Wolf Team pilots Jegans, top-of-the-line Mobile Suits. But something seemed...off. A team of technicians took me out to the hangars to see my new machine. It's definitely a Jegan, but it's different. It's covered in maneuvering verniers, and looks trimmed down in places. The gun is different too. I didn't see an ammo clip, or a receiver for one, so I'm assuming it's a beam weapon. I thought beam rifles were reserved for command units?
But then it hit me. All those tests they've been running on me. They say I'm a "Newtype." That I'm some next step in Human evolution. The only Newtypes I knew of are Amuro Ray and Char Aznable, and last I heard they were both MIA, presumed dead after the incident earlier this year. The technicians say that being a Newtype is a blessing. It's not. Not for me, anyway; it's a curse. Sure, I can pilot a mobile suit well, better than "normal" people; but when I'm not training or sleeping, I'm being poked and prodded by lab techs, day in and day out.
Maybe, if I'm lucky, Wolf Team will be stationed somewhere remote. Mayble mopping up renegade Zeon forces out in the asteroid belt? I'd love to be as far away as possible from here.


Honestly, I have no clue what prompted me to draw a Jegan. I guess I just like the design. But of course, I just couldn't leave well enough alone, and had to turn it into a custom, high-performance variant.
This is my first attempt at a (semi) original mobile suit set in Gundam's Universal Century timeline. This could develop into a short story, but for now, I think I'll leave it where it is.

One of the cleanest-looking Jegan renditions so far... And a good blueprint for a Mod/kitbash.

- Modified Jegan Body
- GM Custom shoulders
- Beam rifle from Nu
- Sinanju Fuel Tanks/Verniers

... I mean, in the word of J. Clarkson, "How hard can it be?" XD

Heh, I'm ahead of you on this one. I've actually been modding an HG Jegan into this. It's a bit harder than you say, there's lots of little differences across the whole thing, and the HG kit's proportions are a little off from what I'd like. Still, it's getting there.

Go grunt suits, I always preferred kick-ass grunt suits over them overpowered hero suits. That's why in those very very rare occasions that grunt bots go toe to toe with hero suits and end up kicking ass i get all giddy. For example in the first part of the first ep of the unicorn OVA you have this stark jegan going all hero type in terms of movement then (too bad) it ends up losing in the end and it dawns on you IT WAS A NAMELESS GRUNT! since when were they that good?!?!?!?!!?

I think that stark jegan was an ace pilot unit so yeah that explains the hero moves :lmao:

Very nice, but one problem with that story in that every Jegan has a beam rifle.

Okay, ya got me there. I just looked up the Jegan up on MAHQ, and sure enough, it uses a beam rifle. The battery pack just happens to look exactly like an ammo clip. Like, for bullets.

Nice! A great take on the old design. Good times for old farts like me! LOL
The beam rifle is very much like Nu Gundams so that is a great touch man.

Oh. I haven't seen Unicorn yet (because it's only on Bluray. lame).

Suffice to say, this is not the same unnamed pilot.

From that I have been told of, that said... I don't think that the DVD would be easy to find.

And you did a damn fine job at both the illustration and creating a customized variant of the Jegan. Can't say I find it too odd you were compelled to draw this, as I also agree, the Jegan is a really nice design for what is, essentially, cannon fodder in CCA (though they seem to be a bit more formidable in Unicorn).

Really nice illo man, and great personal take on this classic MS.

Cheers!
