Thoughts on upcoming Gundam anime series "GUNDAM AGE"

Ok,my first thought when I saw this magazine page was "another gundam builder?".The 3 guys in the picture look so young,and the guy with the yellow coat is holding a controller sort of device,which make me think that its a gundam game type of story like gundam builder.But it is actually about a hundred year old war.
Truth be told,I was kind of disappointed,because the gundam in the picture isn't what I imagine it would be and somethings tells me that the story won't be as deep compared to some of the old gundam series.Of course,all this may change when more information about it comes out.
The story is about three generations,"father, child, and descendant" as the lead characters. The main characters pilot the Gundam unit to fight against an unknown attacking enemy (UE) and save Earth in a "One Hundred Year War" — an apparent homage to the One Year War of the first Gundam series.
The first main character is Furitto Asuno, who developed the Gundam AGE-1 mobile suit (humanoid mobile weapon) equipped with the AGE System (a self-adapting computer). The second main character is Asemu Asuno, Furitto's child. The third main character is Kio Asuno, Furitto's descendant who inherits the Gundam. The Gundam AGE-1 can be augmented as the Gundam AGE-1 Titus for more power, or as the Gundam AGE-1 Sparrow for more speed.
The AGE system is basically haro from gundam 00 and the gundam being augmented into different forms reminds me of liger zero from zoids.
Hopefully,more news will be coming our way and let us get a more detailed look at this series.The series will begin fall 2011,so look forward to it!
