Again, what are you talking about? Canít you see Bandaiís big promotion of future releases that is MG Tallgeese, AGE-3 Norm, and AGE-FX ? Bandai is giving Wing and AGE a chance.

I agree, especially considering that SEED: DESTINY HD and Gundam UC6 are coming out next year.

Nothing so spectacular. Just the Space Brothers Mutta and Apo EVA set my brother got me for my birthday.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last two years you know that Wing has been getting a huge push, and is getting a brand new frame in Leo, so this one is pointless.

X had another chance with HGAW and it tanked. AGE has gotten way more then alot of series with a lack of 1/100 NG's and it's under performed and yet still has two coming up so again trying to argue this is pointless.

OO and G are the only ones that can be argued and given the push for UC, SEED, Destiny, Wing, and AGE it makes sense. However even OO has stuff like the Exia Repair 3 Metal Build. So the only thing that you asked for that you haven't got is G.

His complaint doesn't even make sense, considering that Age got more MGs in 2012 than any other series with 5, more than Seed (4) or UC (3). Not to mention the crap-ton of stuff Age got in 1/144 scale due to the show airing.

U mean this year? Its 2013 now XD

As for all the above: Totally correct

1. Bandais hands full
2. AGE and Wing are STILL being pushed despite UC and DESTINY
3. 00 is still very recent unlike Wing or DESTINY (soon not to be I guess)
4. Once Bandai gets these out of the way we will obviously start to see more of Suiton's list as options start to dwindle for other series

*sigh*...one of those arguments again?

Honestly though, I wouldn't mind seeing a MG double X or something. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think X is the only series without a MG (but having said that, X got cut short because of a lack of interest...)

So assuming Seed Destiny gets the HD treatment this year, I reckon a MG Legend might get released. That'll go well with my MG SF, IJ and Destiny...

I've pretty much given up on the druggies...

Yeah X did under perform and was ended before it's full run. However so did the original Gundam, granted X will never bounce back like 0079 but now it is neither the only one to be cut short (0079) or the worst performing Gundam (AGE).

I to would love to see a MG of DX, despite hating the series and designs I would like to have all the leads in MG, well aside from SEED and Destiny.

The problem with X is that it did get it's chance with a HG Gundam X and while it was a decent model it still didn't sell well to my knowledge.
So while a MG X would definitely be awesome it's chances of being released look rather bad right now. Afterall Bandai often uses the HG kits as a benchmark plattform of sorts to determine the overall interest for a certain model.
The western markets might have a higher demand for a MG X/X Devider or even a MG DX but since they don't really actively sell their kits here they don't really care about us.

On the other hand this makes me wonder why we haven't seen a MG V2 yet. Maybe they just didn't know yet how to include all of it's different incarnations in one pack? You know, the Assault, the Buster and the Assault Buster?
However! They recently released the Duel Assault Shroud and did it really well there with all the extra pieces for the actual assault shroud.
They also recently released the AGE-2 Dark Hound which has a visor that can be popped down on one eye, similar to the V2's heat sensor!
Maybe I'm crazy or just too tired to think properly at this point, but to me this almost looks like they could just take what they learned from those two kits to make a great MG V2!

I'm aware of X's sales issues, and have mentioned them several times myself in this very thread. My point was only that X's suffering isn't unique on any front. So a MG X/DX could come down the line given we are still getting AGE MG's and everything we've seen has painted the sales of AGE line in genearl in a bad light.

As far as V2 goes, I haven't the slightest clue. Until AGE perfomace Victory was only above X as it did quite poorly as well, and we never did see or hear about how the MG performed. I do expect decently given it was a Ver Ka and they later released the Core Booster pack, however it may not have done well enough to be worth a V2.

That said V2 has been getting a decent amount of love and they even had him as one of the cover stars of stuff like Extreme Vs so maybe one day we will get him along side Zero TV, X and DX to finish off the 90's lead in MG.

Just finished building the Master Grade Nu Gundam Ver Ka. I took some pictures before mounting it onto the stand, and it simply looks beastly. I do apologise, I'm using an older camera for these images.

Images
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

As with pretty much every other reviewer out there, I wasn't used to the malleability of the inner frame, but the completed model feels solid. As for the other issues about the kit? I can live with the wrists being loose, and the funnels are best left on the included stand I did try to apply the decals and accidentally wiped them out during the transformation, but honestly, decals or not, the Nu is an excellent model kit that was fun to build and even more fun to stare at

^Nice job . So, do you like the exposed psycho-frame?

I see you didn't do much panel-lining. I think it will make your Nu look nicer if you did ^^.

I thought Bandai released some sort of teaser re MG Wing Zero TV ver?

But I agree...Bandai will no doubt milk Seed and UC line before releasing something from X or G-Gundam line. One can always dream!

It's not unusual for bandai to want to sell it products right. As about milking, bandai seems to have switched from random MG releases to purpose group releases. We had Wing EW releases, all nicely grouped and gundam AGE releases. Now it's the 5 main gundams from seed. I suspect that when seed destiny get's HD's we will see a group of destiny main gundams, most likely gaia, saviour, legend, chaos and abyss to be released in quick succession. After that maybe they will turn to the 8th ms team as it's taking again a forefront...

It's the same in the Robot damashii line, also quick succession of figures from the same animť

I would love a wing zero TV version, let's hope after my even more loved Tallgeese it will come

I honestly think that we'll only get Saviour or Chaos, because the other two didn't even get an NG 1/100 treatment.

It would be a very nice surprise if the opposite happens though. Having a Gundam that can transform into a dog in MG will be very exciting.

I don't typically do panel lining because A) I'm too lazy and B) I'm not sure if there are other pens that have similar results as Gundam markers That said, I might give it a shot if I can get the right tools. The exposed psycoframe is brilliant

That's true firefox. I agree. It was good timing as well cos I managed to buy all the Wing MGs (bar Tallgeese) in one go when i went back to HK in April last year.

I still have Epyon to finish and I have just purchased a few SD kits (they were "50%" off in Australia, ie normal pricing in HK).

Lol...MG Gaia/Dog...would be nice. I would gladly buy the entire Seed line next time i head back.

It would be interesting if Bandai decides to release say the MG Destroy...It'll probably be MG Perfect Zeong sized...hahah
