What's the order number? I think I'll try to contact GG directly to see if he can relay some information to his staff.

I've never had problems with GG Infinite which is why a lot (not all) of all things GunPla related are ordered from there as pretty much everyone knows.

Wait, you spent a ton of money because you were BORED?

And before even asking about them? O-o

Dont worry, from what I have seen they are great, better than FIX imo

There are reviews on Youtube for them. They seem to be pretty sick in terms of detail, articulation and overall quality

That's pretty crazy that you bought a Metal Build just because you were bored.

Watch the reviews.

Well, I bought a new lens for my DSLR because I was bored! (But it was also about 50% off, 140Ä for a telephoto of that quality is like stealing it from a store).

As for the metal builds, they do seem to be really damn cool. If you are a fan of the Exia they are definitely worth it, especially since MG Exia was rather terrible. The metal builds seem to be the definitive 1/100 Exia figures.

This must be one of the worst and most dull MG box arts in years! I don't see what's so great about it.

Its not bad, the problem imo is that the image is put on the wider box (eg MG delta plus or 00 Raiser), which usually have more dynamic art compared to the standard shaped ones (eg MG tallgeese, the thicker box with the standard face size of a HG)

Its a big step up from the Normal, which is just hovering there with no pose whatsoever, but it would have looked better if they had it in a standard MG box


I just noticed, is that the Khronos I spy in the background?

I believe those are Zedas M's. But one could be the Khronos, I can't make it out fully.

Does it matter? I mean it's not like Bandai ever releases things as MG because it's in the background art of another MG.

If i'm completely honest that box art is probably my favourite master grade art this year. it has a nice sense of action without becoming cluttered, and the pose is rather cool. And I like the touch of the effects that almost look like the after trails of the beam blades. It reminds me of games like Soul Calibur where the blade movement would leave a colored effect in the air.

I'm not a fan of AGE but I'd take that Double Bullet pose over the overused "aiming the gun at you" pose of many MG boxart out there ;P.

I like the MG Age 2 Double Bullet pose as well. I'm also excited to see the boxart for th Age 2 Normal SP Ver which was announced as an online exclusive though I suspect it'll be like all blue like the MG Tallgeese 2.

Online exclusive boxes are rather bland imo, but thats sorta natural (though I do like the plain boxes with only the grade stamp and name on them

You know, even though the boxart is plain or epicly awesome, I think it's more important that we have the Master Grade kits that we want as well as variations. =P

What would it take for Bandai to do a 2.0 style release for the MG Shining Gundam and MG God Gundam and then do an online exclusive for the Super Mode and Hyper Mode (respectively)?

High demand and Bandai’s good mood (imo 75% is due to Bandai's mood).

In other words...

1. likelyhood of being very profitable
2. can spam out variations (color, versions) with little additional cost as online exclusive
3. popular and current series

So I guess MG Shining Gundam 2.0 and MG God Gundam 2.0 aren't really likely.

Guess I'll continue to wait for more 00, Wing EW, Age, Seed RM Ver., and Seed Destiny RM Ver. line of MG kits.
