that wouldnt make sense because in this case the kits really are identical. the HG versions of the unicorn and banshee arent.

Really liking the MG Spallow, it is one of the few AGE MS I really like.

But yea would have to find another weapon for it, that one little dinky knife isn't enough.

You could get "replacement" parts sent and dual wield the knives?

Another variant of it could help, but a single blade and those kneedles (needles that comes out from the knees) won't.

Does the MG Sparrow have the needle things? o_O
I think it's fine though. The Sparrow is a speed type like a ninja... minimal equipment, maximum speed & damage.

The very image of the MG Spallow you posted shows the Needle Guns on the knees.

Some more images of the MG Gundam AGE-1 Spallow:

hm, actually designing a second box is where the extra cost will come from.. printing cost is mostly the same whether or not they print a different design on it. the time taken to change the design, whether its a 5sec or hour job is still an extra cost. anyway making the kits in the 2 colour scheme is much more expensive than designing an extra box.

see above, the photo in the spoiler. image #3 within that scan.

i really dont know which version of the AGE-1 i want anymore... the normal is a pretty plain RX-78-2 clone (which is both a good and a bad thing) but i like the rifle and the sparrow only has the tiny little knife but a great level of details like those needle guns... and i like blue >__>

Doesn't look like it has that knee needle. Looks like a hole to me. >_>

Exactly. But people here made it seem like the actual projectile was included. I'm not seeing it. I just see a whole in the knee...like you could put a beam in it..lol

I think you misunderstood then. If you're referring to this:

Then I think maknaedik was talking about the needle guns as a feature of the MG Spallow, rather than it having needle projectiles included.

Well, another MG to my long list of must-buy. I like it very much. The color scheme is almost all-blue and match the overall body. The design is so ninja-like which is very unique in Gundam universe. Iím totally okay with the minimal weapon the kit has. The lack of weapons/gimmicks will push the kitís pose-ability to its maximum usage (Plus that two-fingers sticking out is very attractive for posing). Also, itís cheap.

It's always nice to have extra options, like posing Spallow kneeing something vegan. I guess sharpening some waste sprue is easier.

Yeah, the second included figure is the ex-gf Yurin.

I wonder if you can put a 1/144 beam in the MG Spallow's knees.

MG Age-1 sparrow and titus are a waste of MG slots. they will be on sale at -50% for the rest of it's existence. They are not really appealing for MG builders in the long term, once the Age hype is over they will never get "out of stock" again.

Owel a few cheap MG's are not bad right?

While I agree with you on the Titus (lack of frame detail+not that good looking), but I think Spallow will remain somewhat popular. It's slick, unique-looking (in a good way) so yeah, that's a stayer..

While I agree on the lack of long term appeal a MG stating opinion as fact is a bad habit.
