The obligatory pics of MG Sazabi Ka:

^ To me, the color separation sucks. The pink color stands out like a sore thumb among the red and orange colors. Rather than providing eye-candy, the pink-color looks like parts that isn’t finished being painted yet (kinda looks like Frankenstein’s patched-up body). Sazabi is actually a MS that doesn’t need color-separation to look good. Thus, I prefer the all-red approach of the HG and the old MG. I hope there’s still room for improvement for this Sazabi Ka.

I think it's easier for Bandai to make something that was mediocre into something better, which was the case with the Nu Gundam. Thus we now kinda expect miracles from the Sazabi, which to be honest, while has its failing, wasn't as bad as the old Nu.

My beef with this, as the color separation was pointed out, kinda make the extra layers looks like out of place pla plates. Of course, I'd really like to see how the actual model would look like. Maybe Bandai will go Rozen Zulu and make the Sazabi brown.

Is there a problem with RGs where the finger joints break off?

And in regards to the Sazabi Ver. Ka, we should wait til the final product is out before judging.
Remember with the RG Strike Freedom people were raging out this and that, and now most people are quite satisfied with it.

Are you referring to the thumb finger, the trigger finger or the three-conjoined fingers? Cause I usually have to pop back in the trigger finger.

This was especially the case with the RG Strike and Freedom for me. But if you mean broken ball joint, nope, never had that issue.

I've had more problems with beam saber holders cracking/broken at the male peg.

Nah, still the same complaining. The essence is the same, raging or not.

I’m actually quite fond of RG’s flexible fingers coz now I can make my gundams grab the beam saber however I want without being limited to using the peg . Here’s one example of my RG holding a beam saber:

Let's all make a predictions.
Aside from UC getting MG, HG, SD, RG, and maybe PG... What 'alternate century' line do you think we'll see in the RG and MG line?

Do you think Bandai will finish up the Age MGs? What series do you think is likely (aside from UC series) to get RGs or do you think Bandai will just do the 3 Impulse, Aegis, Savior, and Infinite Justice? Do you think the Wing EW line will go into full swing mode again like 2012/2013? Do you think 00 will make a surprise return? Do you think Seed/Seed Destiny will get new kits/RM Ver. kits?

2014 will be the year of G-Savior, so expect kits in all grades. A MG is looooong overdue

Long overdue = likely a kit comes out?

I think that predictions are more likely to come true if:

- there have been kits coming out on a regular basis
- there's a manga series currently running
- there's a tv series airing (be it new, hd remaster, etc)
- sunrise is doing like bluray remaster releases

So far, I think aside from UC and Build Fighter, Age, Wing Seed, Seed Destiny are likely candidates for more RG and MG with X and 00 being a bit less.

SEED, Wing and stuff will take a backseat, 2014 is G-Saviours 15th anniversary. So to celebrate that Bandai will start pumping out the kits for G-Savior, seeing that there is such a high demand for it. Plus a HD-Remaster is just a matter of time

You think Seed, Seed Destiny, Wing, 00, Age, X, and G will all take a backseat when a lot of them would color variations or slightly changed armor pieces..? Being able to reuse frames will be cheaper cost to Bandai meaning they can pump those out fast.

Besides, Seed and Destiny are cash cows that I'm sure Bandai wants to milk dry; same for Wing with Frozen Teardrop and Glory of the Defeated running right now.

G-Savior was a remarkable success, especially with the US market. Bandai hasn't been able to replicate this. I dare say, Wing and G-Savior did better in USA than it did in Japan.

RRobbert184 did a justifying review of the Master Grade 1/100 G-Savior, a limited edition kit, with only 1,000 units produced, just for the movie screening.



But I hope Bandai would release some of the gems from the Sentinel/AoZ series.

That's HG 1/144, not MG 1/100.

Can't believe I had that kit once before, but didn't know the value of it. In restrospect, the sculpt for that kit was incredibly sharp and detailed though.
