WTF Bandai!
Not like you are done building your own kits yet anyway.

I will eventually. It's called work, life, etc. GunPla doesn't take priority over those, but I will buy the kits that I like.

Ah yes, because every other person making gunpla does not have a job or a social life. We all spend our time just brooding on the internet complaining about minor issues in models kits...
oh...wait...

Anyway I looked at the plates for MG age1 and although the knees are not black, they did mold the parts separately in dark grey. So while it is indeed slightly disappointing it will be a quick spray/brush away from being black.

Yes, but looking at it so for, as long as that part is separate, then painting it will be no problem.

My only problem of not having a multi-colored A Plate is because I'm gonna miss it and that's is. Small complaint #2

I personally am disappointed on the absence of sliding panels for the legs of Duel only because we've seen it in MG Strike and it's a pity we don't see it in its fellow brethren. Yes, small complaint #3

But I'm not whining, I'm just saying that things could've been better. I can live with that and I'm still willing to buy MG Aegis and MG Titus

The black on the knees aren't black parts apparently? DAMN! Pictures have fooled us!!

Also...

I'm gonna miss the old multi colored A Plate T_T
They're not black parts that much is true. They're grey parts on the J runner, as seen on your link. Also, refer to Appel's post above for the pic of the unpainted MG AGE-1 with no decals.

So they're not black, but they're molded as separate parts, and the grey itself is actually dark enough that even on an unpainted build the MG AGE-1 still looks presentable. Not their best effort, but nothing worth raging about IMHO.

exactly. i can see why they did that! they probably tried to save money by not designing a multicolored A runner. so instead of giving us a tiny runner with just two black pieces they incorporated the knees into the inner frame. i actually like that because it still looks good and you can paint it very easily because the pieces are seperate from everything else. no masking needed, just slap the paint on and you wont need the stickers^^
although, since they did give us seperate pieces for the knees the stickers would work pretty well, too.

I can only imagine the no. of post here if Bandai announced something that will result in no more new Wing MGs for the year or next.

Regarding the MG Age-1 plates, the lack of a multicolor A-plate must be related to Age-1 multi wear design. Plus the recent campaign by Bandai to simplify gunpla construction and reduce cost (by limiting the wasted PS/ABS in the plates).

That's why I've calmed down

Well it looks encouraging, like you really want to build it or something like that.

Not that big a deal, but it looks cool.

Consider it as a tradition. Bandai kits always have a mutli-colored A Plate. Even non-Gundam ones follow this standard. That, for me, makes it special. But then again, that might be a selfish reason of mine so you're not responsible to be bothered :P

Everytime I take plates out of the model box. I always know without looking wich one is the A plate, usually because its the one that has Red, Yellow an Blue (now it seems the 'A' colors Blue, Yellow an Red are Now A-B an C) o.o

From looking at those pictures, the black stickers on the MG Age 1. I don't mind I didnt even put the stickers on my HG AGE.

for some reason it just makes a cheaper impression on me without a multicolored plate^^ kinda makes it look like they spent less time planning it and just rushed it out to save money :P
but in the end it only depends on how good the model really is.

Yup! =)

I hope the MG AGE-1 Normal is a good kit. Just a bit annoyed about the knee part.
