Why do you kit builders get all the good stuff?

Seriously, if AGE is a failiure in both merchandise and viewings, why does Bandai keep pumping out the kits?

The same reason you get spam email. Gundam is a plot device to sell model kits lol.

Everyone seems to be drawing attention to how colourful MSs are now. Gundams and other MSs have always been colourful. Even when you look at the original Mobible suit Gundam anime with Amuro. Why would you ever paint a space mobile suit white? Let alone bright blue and red. lol

Oh and my almost finished custom GM custom:

Well, the US's Space Shuttle is white. So, why not?

It's not a military weapon? lol Why doesn't every country paint their tanks and jets bright red?

But yeah, I've got a hunger for grunt suits. I'll probably buy some of the age series too. I'll end up heavily modifying them but, I will spend the coin to get them.

I'm only talking about white color. And it's not that impossible to have your war machines colored white. For example: US's Predator UAC/UAV.

UAV doesn't have people on it. Yes there are things that are white. Like UN vehicles. It's still not tactically wise to paint your military weapons contrasting colours. Why not paint a bulls-eye on yourself?

Edit:I don't mean to be rude either. Always great to debate things and share opinions.

Yeah, but I never said anything about "tactically wise" to paint it white. I said it's not that impossible for a war machine (UAV counts) to be colored white.

No offense here too. I love good debate .

Btw, here's some Predator advertisement:



So, who wants to rent it?

Well for me. White is a go to colour. Cars and Gundams alike, look great in a good white paintjob/scheme. Part of why it's so fun to gunpla and be interested in model kits. Pure fun. You don't need to worry about real life stuff. Just about how to keep your gundams from falling over lol.

mostly the hands. it would probably get the same fixed hands that all the other new MG wing models have.
other than that probably a sturdier frame similar to the wing gundam TV versions frame. they would recycle it to a certain degree.
its actually really hard for me to think about things they could change because i really like the wing EW the way it is right now^^

That's basically all that I'm asking for, and if Bandai could profit w/ minimal time and resources put into it, don't you think they should?

well, yes and no...
on the one hand the current MG wing zero EW is crazy popular and almost everyone who builds gunpla and likes wing owns it. so they already made a fuckton of money with it.
on the other hand the wing zero itself is VERY popular and bandai loves to milk franchises. so a "2.0" version would probably sell very well, too.
however, so far they have only made new versions for really terrible kits. like the original MG zeta. kits like the wing zero or the hyaku shiki dont really need those updates... there are other kits that really need them, like the MGs from stardust memory.

This is why I thought that Wing Zero EW 2.0 was unlikely, that and the reissue of Wing Gundam EW made it so it would be highly unlikely they would do it when they already threw away their recolor package chance.

That said, I do believe there is one strong possiblity for Wing Zero 2.0, and that i Snow White. Depending on how close they stick to the Wing/Zero design I don't see Bandai wanting to release a brand new kit, of a brand new suit that is a lead based on a Frame from 2004.

As it is Wing Zero MG is already based on Wing EW so they could market it as Wing Zero finally getting it's own inner frame, play up the newness of it and then turn and reuse a good deal of it on Snow White, so they would still cash in on Zero as well as have a frame that is good enough to try and sell as a brand new kit.

i really needed those. because i wanted to display it with my MK-II 2.0 which has all decals on it, that would have looked rather lame together.

Wow, I never thought that you're gonna start this quick on it.

Imagine a MG Destiny Heine with Wing of Light . That's a sight to behold.
