It makes me go "Orbital Frame"/Zone of the Enders but other then that I have no idea.
For in-metaseries it is the Sakibure

Its quite clearly modeled to resemble Welltal ID from Xenogears, and I must say it does a damn good job at doing so.

So what are your thoughts on the SD Age kits..

Why did they release all 3 "wears" in 1 kit (normal, sparrow, and titus)...? To cut costs? I might ave to get 3x of the same kit to display them.

Clear parts will finally have a more meaningful purpose in a gunpla.

like every big business decision this probably boils down to a ton of factors :P
first of all its cutting costs because they only need to press the base body for a single package instead of three seperate packages. there is also just one box that needs to be designed and made instead of three.
also, the consumers now HAVE to buy the more expensive pack with all three of them instead of having a choice between three seperate kits.
and lastly, consumers who want all three SD AGE-1s on their shelf at the same time need to buy the whole package three times.
this way on average they sell more plastic per customer and none of the three kits get "left behind" in sales.

FML...lol

And then the MG Age-1 Normal, Titus, and Sparrow are separate kits...

They're probably testing the waters for a possible Normal-Titus-Sparrow HG box.

Instead of thinking "Hey I need to get 3" you could look at it like the target audience (Younger people) "Hey I can make all 3 and mix them! cool!"

No because they already did an HG for those 3. Why would they do it again? It costs money to do that.

I think they're testing it for SD Age-2 (series) and SD Age-3 (series).. =P

Nicely done. Though I thought it will be harder due to the discontinuation of the series. What gives it away here ? More shots are avaliable from Slave To Hobby

The Age-1 runners design would easily enable Bandai to release another set gunpla box.

@MakubeX2 - The pose gave it away more in the gallery.

Well, 3 in one MG is hell lot of expensive. I'm still willing to bet that inner frames for the arms and legs are different for each. So no, they won't do it for MG. On the other hand, you can easily do it in SD kits since their runners are few. On HGs, it's quite possible since 3 in 1 HGs isn't something new to Bandai.

I hope they'll name it as the "Bat Extermination War Set".

Im inclined to say that the price for that was mostly due to the gold plating...

Yup yup.

As for the ‘mirage colloid’ effect, I still kinda doubt that you’ll be able to see through Blitz even if the entire kit is made of clear parts which kinda miss the point of ‘mirage colloid’ itself.
