original MSG and the Mk-II

Amuro is still my favorite character because he's kind of an asshat, but an asshat who's right all the time.

OK, that's easy then. You've got...

Mobile Suit Gundam TV (DVD & BD via RightStuf) - The first half of this is out now, the 2nd half will likely be out by the beginning of November
Turn A Gundam TV (DVD via RightStuf)
Turn A Gundam Films (DVD via RightStuf)
Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (DVD via RightStuf, BD via Bandai Visual/RightStuf)
Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin (Collector's Edition BD Import via RightStuf [USA]; Anime Limited [UK])
SD Gundam Sangokuden (Streaming on GundamInfo YouTube channel with SE Asian dub)

For Origin, you can also import the Standard Edition with the dub and subs through Amazon Japan or any other JP retailer with international shipping. The same goes for Unicorn, which is the same aside from Japanese cover art rather than localized art
SEED/Destiny HD and AGE also include subs on their Japanese BD releases and can also be imported through Amazon Japan or other retailers. SEED's HD Remaster is also currently available on GundamInfo's YouTube channel, albeit in standard-def.

If you want to list things scheduled for 2016 as well, you have:

Mobile Suit Gundam Films (DVD via RightStuf)
Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam (DVD, maybe BD via RightStuf)
Mobile Suit ZZ Gundam (DVD, maybe BD via RightStuf)
After War Gundam X (DVD via RightStuf)
Gundam Build Fighters (DVD, maybe BD via RightStuf)
Gundam Build Fighters Try (DVD, maybe BD via RightStuf)
Gundam Reconguista in G (DVD & BD via RightStuf [USA], BD via Anime Limited [UK])
Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans (Dub coming in 2016, DVD & BD presumably to follow)

I think that covers everything announced and currently available to buy right now.

Unicorn is my favourite OVA (the animation quality is ridiculously good, the music is ridiculously good, it has a ton of continuity/gear porn for UC fans, the leads are pretty likeable for kids, the show is mostly low-key political conflict/tactical skirmishing between two ships playing cat and mouse), Turn-A is my favourite 4-cours show (it has the best pacing and the best character development of any Gundam show, as well as being stupidly gorgeous and just generally good), IBO might end up my overall favourite show if it stays good (it's really good).

Gundams are garbage (the V-fin, mempo and chinbeard are bad) but the Turn-A sort of grows on you like a cancer (it has a moustache), the V2 is pretty rad and the AGE-1 Spallow is non-terrible.

My favourite mobile suit design is the Gerbera Tetra (it's one of the best-looking Zeon suits), but the RGM-79D Cold Climate GM is probably my second favourite (it's essentially the quintessential generation 1.5 GM I).

I find turn a's tone and message really resonates with me, and i think the story is top notch. I like the V2 because depending on how you outfit it it can be sleek and simple like a sports car, or huge and greebly like a fortress.

My reasons for liking Fenice are basically similar to yours for liking Wing though. Only Fenice is a broken down Wing with a cool laser cloak and a motorcycle!

Build Fighters is my pick because it was a very fun show and actually got me to buy toys like it was supposed to.

This is me, except I didn't care about Wing. Actually, I cared about Wing, I just thought it was boring as heck. I thought all the mobile suits were super cool, though. I still have a bunch of Gundam action figures when those were actually sold here, including BATTLED SCARRED ones
