I choose Gundam's based on what I like most, and the designs that I love. If you love them from AGE then get them, if you like Wing then get those.

Quality and the type of build will change from person to person. There are people that think AGE-1 Normal is kit of the year, and others who think Heavyarms or even one of the seed Kits.

None of them are something like Gundam 1.0/Zeta 1.0/Mk II 1.0 where the quality gap is gigantic because of how old the suits are, so again you should always just go with what catches your eye the most.

So what would you choose between Wing & Age MG's...?

If I have to generalize, Iíll chose Wing. So far, each MG from Wing-line interest me (which are many, btw) as I have own most of them. AGE, not so much. So far, I only interested in Sparrow and Darkhound. Still, that might change once I see FX and AGE 3-Norm MGs.

For me personally?

Easily Wing. Katoki's designs are some of the greatest in all of gundam be it Wing EW or Unicorn.

I find the design of the AGE suits to be just horrible and the worst Gundam has seen on the whole since G Gundam with the only ones being decent are the AGE 3 Normal and AGE 3 Orbital.

i would go with wing MG kits. I have heavyarms, sandrock and wing and they are my favorite designs when it comes to gundam. The only thing that i like about age are the HG's. In my opinion some the HG are better than the MG's when it come to Age. It may sound crazy but i like the HG age kits more than the MG's. Example: I had more of an enjoyment build HG Titus than its MG counterpart. Same with Spallow i think the only exception is the age 1 normal, but thats my opinion.

So 3/3 responses I got from individuals were all Wing MG's..

I mean so far I have these MG's from Wing & Age...

Wing
- Wing Gundam (TV)
- Epyon EW --> coming in the mail from GG Infinite

Age
- Age-1 Normal
- Age-1 Sparrow
- Age-1 Titus
- Age-2 Normal
- Age-2 Darkhound

What's seriously making me a bit hesitant with the Wing MG's line is:

a. no MG Wing Gundam Zero (TV)
b. wanting a remastered MG Wing Gundam Zero (EW)
c. wanting a remastered MG Wing Gundam (EW)

Can't you just buy what you like, instead of asking the same question every page here?

What should i buy? What model should i get? what is better? etc.

Borg drones have more individuality..

Buy a HG Bearguy.


Also, nonrelated to Gundam, does anyone here own any of the macross frontier 1/72 series?

Interested in buying only 2 of them. Ozma Custom and the red one (obviously).

Even if they have MGs for Age-2 DB and Age-3 Orbital, without biases, I'd still choose wing MGs. I know, MG Age-1 Normal had some new gimmicks but they aren't exciting. Lack of inner frame details for Age MGs spells "cheat". I don't really care that much about it since they won't be exposed anyway, but how about those who want to detail them up?

I also appreciate MGs of Wing more since some of their MGs aren't available in 1/144 scale or even if they are, the quality is FAR. Age MGs and HGs aren't that far in terms of looks and articulation.

Seconded. The only real downside for this kit for me is that it has so much stuff that you won't know which ones to prop the Strike Noir with.
You got:
  • 3x beam rifles (1 like strike's and 2 like duel's)
  • 2x beam rifle shorties (the pistols)
  • 2x swords
  • 2x rocket anchors
  • 2x wing-mounted rail cannons

Since there was an announcement of a MG Strike remaster, do you guys think that the Strike E's will also get a remaster?

That's basically the feelings I got w/ the Age MG's lately..

- cheaped out with lack of inner frame details
- not that much articulation

I don't know..

I guess I'll get them all.
I'm just really hoping that Wing gets the MG's that it needs:

http://inb4suiton.blogspot.com/2013/...s-we-need.html

^ Is that list too wishful?

okay man, its your money and you can do what you want with it, besides you have all the age MG's that have been released so why would there be a choice between age and wing. And can you stop saying that the word "we." I can really care less that bandai has not made those kits because I have other hobbies and things to do. My life does not revolve around gunpla. If Bandai makes the kit great. If they don't oh well maybe next time; its that simple to me. Its not what we need it is what YOU want bandai to make, and that simply is not going to make the kits come any faster. You just need to be patient like the rest of us and stop asking question about the same thing.

Definitely the pistols. It’s rare for a gundam to use pistols (mostly rifles and bazookas). Oh, also the anchor-hooks on its hands and feet .

I’d say the chance is slim since the E didn’t appear in the SEED Remaster (which is the whole point of Strike 2.0). In fact, at this point, MG Strike Rouge or Freedom have the better chance to be ver.2.0-ed.

Yeah this one seems odd.

AGE -1 has problems with it's arm staying in for some people because of the peg length, and AGE-2 Legs have some stability issues because of the Trasformation design but, I've never heard anyone complain about the Articulation on any of the AGE MG's.
