Is that final? It's really tame for a MG Box art...dual wielding is cool and all, but the pose is lacking

A literal translation of the label under the boxart reads "Package is still under considerartion".

Still better than the generic rifle point pose they usually use for Gundam models.

Don't care about cover art... =) I know the final one will look decent at least, but I'm happy that ultimately we're getting the MG Age-2 Normal first and foremost.

its different, i give you that much^^
however, i think making a model kit that can move all over the place and then not having it do anything at all on the cover isnt a really good idea...
the boxart of the MG OO Qan[T] didnt really have an action pose as well but at least it had a neat flying pose with a ton of purdy particles.

Have to count me as one that doesn't really care for box cover art, it's all about the models.
As long as the box is strudy and spacious enough to fit everything and it arrives at my doorstep in one piece then it's all good baby

If I start caring about box art for gunpla, then it will most likely carry over to other model stuff I get and I gotta say they for the most part are very very basic.

Crappier box art means easier to throw it away

Meh! It's just box art. I only care about the gundam. I doubt I'll get the MG though. I've become pretty set on HG kits.

Got my HG kits today. Built Kyrios and Spallow age 1 already. Camera needs new batteries, so pictures are gonna have to wait.

Kickass box-art does help though. A nice kit with cool box-art is just like good food that smells great. They encourage your appetite .

I guess I'm odd then. I look at the kit, reviews and think about modding potential. I'm often surprised when I finally build kits, that I would have passed up if not for seeing a review. I will admit I have to take a leap of faith sometimes on certain kits.

Bandai is considering yet another rifle pose.

We'll it could use some more dynamically posed wings like this:

are there any animal safe acrylic paints on the market? i have a crested gecko and im plannning to make a DIY ledge for him to sit on. i have the list of products needed to make the ledge but id like to look into the idea of painting it. i plan to cover/seal the ledge with mod podge or some similar porduct.

my question is if Tamiya acrylic paint will be toxic regarding its composition when contacting with the final sealant? i do have some spray cans and Humbrol enamel paint but i figure acrylic paint is safer. if there is no such safe paint then i'll do without painting the ledge.

As far as I know, all paints are toxic (to little animals, in particular). So, If you really care for your crested geckoís health, I suggest you to drop the paint. But thatís just me .

Nice model in terms of looks, but has the same faults as the normal bucue, no polycaps! Also his twinguns are to low mounted so their movement is hindered by the wings.

Next up will be a more serious MG again , also from seed

It is pricey allright.

Then again for me, the IWSP alone it's worth every cent. Despite its bulk, it can actually stand on its own:



Only issue is that you can't make the original RD Strike hold the IWSP's boomerang since unlike the Strike Rouge, the original Strike's left saber-wielding hand has its thumb and index finger molded together. Though you can just cut the molded part to fix the problem :3
