Now that you mention it. It's indeed one of the most brutal.

Now that I think about it, I'm a bit annoyed that the darned spoiler is still there even though the AGE System gone.

Maybe the function of the spoiler was changed when the Gundam was removed from the AGE System.

Most likely now an attachment point for the "Age Defenser". But the tri-thrusters are indeed separated from the spoiler itself.

On an slightly related note, the gunpla versions doesn't have removable spoilers either.

Well, I dont expect it to be removable because of how intergral of a spoiler that is but I guess I was speaking from a "its a redundant, so why not move it" POV. I'm just guessing they just didnt want to spent time and effort removing it.

The real reason is so they don't have to make a new mold for the model if they put it out. That said, there's nothing, IIRC, stating that the spoiler antennae was just for the AGE System. And even if it was, it could've easily been retrofitted for a commander's unit, as the AGE-1 Flat is just that--a commander's unit. It should have the proper set-up to help with Flit's duties.

The new pack for Age 1, I hope it has some high firepower because that is what the Age 1 is mostly lacking.

Age 1 with any set up is to focused on MS vs MS

Does anyone else suspect the two hard-point looking things on the Shaldoll Custom's shoulders look like they could actually be hard-points? Maybe for missiles, or cannons?

Nice big look at the AGE-1 Phoenix from Treasure Star.

That is quite obviously a fanart/shop though. While it does show the design of the AGE-1 Phoenix, it's hardly official art.

Plausible, since Mardona had built shoulder attached weapons before: the DoubleBullet lookalike from episode 9...

Man I wish they dived into what that MS was. It looked really neat. I hope we one day get some info on it.

There's plenty of G variants out there, so its always possible though it looked more like a prototype more than anything. HG Shaldoll Custom seems to say that Madorna does a lot of customized works for a lot of different people, so its likely one of those random ones.

Guess, you're still curious about the hat one as well

Anywaysm calubin translated parts of the HG Shaldoll Custom this over at Mechatalk, thought its worth posting.

During the war against the Vagans, it is formally adopted by the Federation as it fights along side with Genoaces and Adeles, being a popular machine amongst civilians whom are temporarily registered as pilots.

I didn't quite get that sample part and it also mentioned how Woolf had a Shaldoll customised to look like a Gundam, that being the G-Exes.

The Shaldoll Kai is a customised/modified machine, but I can't infer which party applied the changes.

Madorna Factory
Without a fixed home location, it is a custom maker primarily for MS, with its operations held in a gigantic factory ship. It is also active as a military arms manufacturer, progressing with the development of the easily military adoptable Shaldoll since the outbreak of the Vagan war. The factory also holds interests in restoring archaic MS and it somehow once had a Vagan MS stashed in there with yet revealed reason.

Anything from the HG Genoace II manual? I believe that the Shaldoll Custom is the elite MS being newer and customizable (before the Adele) and the Genoace II is the mass production unit.

I don't think the Federation has anything comparable to an "elite" MS. Going by the show, even the Adele is a mook compared to Vagan MS.

Genoace II, Shaldoll Custom, and the Adele look to have the same performance level, even if model kits and dialogue says otherwise.

"Elite" as in a hi/lo mix concept for the F-15/F-16 or even the T-64/T-72 production for the Soviets. In this case, the Shaldoll Custom was the more capable unit yet lesser in number compared to Genoace II.

Two new G-Wears from a Gundam AGE PSP game. They look pretty neat.

Their names are Gundead and Sworida.

I'm still not quite sure where Shaldoll C. and Genoace II stand, but they don't seem that different in terms of performance of rarity. It seems more of a different type of MS. One is more customizable versions of a model designed to be customizable, while the other is already the evolution of a goverment design. Shaldolls are likely less common but not necessarily "elite", just adopted to a certain extent. The fact that they use the same armaments might suggest the similarity in power levels as well, where the Adele gets more fancy stuff like an actual DODS Rifle and........Spallow/Titus options.

I do remember a line from a magazine that says that the Adele replaced the Genoace II as the EF's premier mass produced MS though, which sort of gives a hint of which mass production one was the common. I think the manuals might say something similar.

The Adele's case isn't really helped by their two super subpar spokespilots at the moment. I personally would say the Genoace II of Diva outclasses Diva Adeles.

There are more I believe but these two are my favorites at the moment. The right one is especially awesome and gives a strong 00 Gundam feel. If it's actually named Swordia, then there's more teason for me to like it because if its one thing I love more than 00 Gundam, its 00 Gundam with swords. The black heavy armor design is awesome too, that should have replaced Titus in my opinion (yeah, I dont like Titus very much).

Looks like they'll be joining the Gold Arrow as alternative timelines AGE-1 wears I guess.
