HLJ's particular descriptions of any model aren't really the most accurate of any site I've seen.

And just in case anyone missed the english version of the promotional poster I was talking about:

Hence, nothing to worry about.

Two new images of the MG 00 Raiser:

I'm still surprised we haven't seen the beam sword yet...

Bandai has really stepped it up with their MG kits lately, haven't they?

There's still two more months till the MG Epyon gets released. LOTS of time for the model mags and promotionals to show off the Beam Sword once they get around to it.

I'm wondering if maybe they actually changed the design mid-production for some reason?

I actually think they did change it at least once: look at the legs of the initial linearts and the actual model.

The actual model has two knee blades just like the original Okawara version, while the initial lineart only has one, and the lineart lacks the tooth line on the foot that suggest the presence of the opening mouth.

Oh kind people at Bandai, if you actually make a real HG GN-X IV you could save these people the trouble of modding them so much.............

My favourite aspect of the ELS GN-X IV has been the Drive Cone, which always reminded me of the GN-X III's lance and in this case it was literally made from it.

I wish they colored the beam saber purple though.

Ya know for a second there, it looked like the ELS GN-XIV has a slightly elongated head.

It looks very nice, easily my favorite MG pic to date.

Painted, as in painted model. These painted images are the ones Bandai releases when showing off the model in its "complete" state. This is in contrast to the unpainted previews shown in hobby magazines, which show the model as they look OOB (out-of-box) with no after work.

So aside from better textures after painting, is there anything actually missing from this out of the box that we know of at the moment?

For the MG 00 Raiser, the only thing we haven't seen from it are its decals and markings. Otherwise we've seen all there is to it of the MG 00 Raiser's features.

I meant from a color perspective, is it known to be missing any colors here and there? Out of the box that is.

Of course, I'm mostly a HG guy so I'm used to filling up the gaps but I thought most MGs had it complete already (just talking about the completeness of the out of box colors, of course it can always be further improved or re-colored by yourself). I'd rather not do it these days since I'm much busier now that I study abroad.

Asides from the optional panel lines, don't see anything that would need major coloring for the MG 00-Raiser. Most MG's nowadays are made to be color accurate out of the box anyhow.

Porportion of SD models to come ? OTOH, this has to be the thinnest interpretation of the Sazabi ever.

I actually did a double take because its outline looked like the Sinanju.
