  2. The head is different, sharper, more like the Zeta than the Age 1, upper arms are looking bulkier too, though that could be form specific (doubt it)

    1. Its because in japanese saturn is土星 and from what i know 土 means soil or earth.

      the reason why they probably used the japanese names instead of the physical appearance, and colors(for some) for the core gundam's forms purpose is beacuse the designers may have wanted the first 5 planets be the first ones to have been base on standard equipment or variant on mobile suits(space, underwater,close combat and heavy weapons) which explaines why mercury was the underwater type instead of neptune since the japanese of mercury is 水星 and 水 is suppsed to be water

  5. Saturnix and Uraven are probably the best name to come out of the planets+numbers naming scheme.

    1. Because in Japanese Saturn is 土星 / "the ground planet". Thus the wheels for high speed ground movement, a drill for cutting through the ground, and so on.

      Hiroto (in the show) and Sunrise Beyond (in reality) based a majority of the functionality of the PLANETS system armors on the Japanese names of the planets. In fact the only one of these armors that doesn't really have anything to do with the Japanese name is Jupiter/"the wood planet"... because a Gundam made of wood is kinda a hard sell...
