Late to the party due to works . Still, here's my personal opinion regarding the new releases:

MG Build Strike: Hmm....I don't know. Still don't like Build Strike's body. The HG upgraded body actually looks better by adding more white to its chest.
MG Build Mk. II: Looks solid.
MG Sengoku Astray: I want a closer look at its face when it's final, but I already like what I see now.
MG Destiny Astray: Yes! It's the purple one like I wanted! I'll def get it.
MG Phenex: Oooww!! My eyeeeesssss!!!!
MG Gundam X: Looks sweeet! Definite buy.
RG Exia: I hope the proportion is better than SEED RGs. If not, I may only get the Roll-out version or Trans-am.
HGUC Banshee Norn Destroy Mode: Might get the RD coz it most likely has way better articulation.
HGUC Ball Gundam Thunderbolt Ver.: No, thank you.
HGUC Kshatriya Repair: I dislike the look of it. So, no thanks.
HGUC FA Unicorn Destroy Mode (Green Psychoframe): If this one is a regular release, those who bought the exclusive Unicorn Green Frame must be pissed off for paying a lot but getting less. Like I said many times, Exclusive HG Green Frame is a dumb release, just like Exclusive MG (plain) Astray & RG (plain) Strike. You pay more for less.
HGAC Wing Zero TV: I'm torn between buying the HG & the RD. I might go for the RD though, but I'll reserve judgement until a review.
HGCC Turn-A: Not interested. I'm already spoiled by the awesome MG.
HGCE Aile Strike & Strike Rouge: I'm not really interested, but might get the Rouge just for the lulz.
HGBF Build Strike Upgrade (with WoL): The body itself looks way cool, but the WoL is an insult to my intelligence.
HGBF GM Sniper K9: Love the green & the rifle.
HGBF Kampher Amazing: I might get this one.
HGBF Qubeley Papillion: I think I'll wait for the "pearl" or "extra finish" edition in the future.

MG TURN-X: OH GOD YESSSSS!!!!!!!

I think it did. Maybe with bits and pieces of inner frame from the previous EW MGs like Epyon and friends.

my thoughts for the announcement:

MG Build Strike: looks pretty decent but havent decide want to get or not even though a strike fan
MG Build Mk. II: looks like taken from ver 2 & looks solid . KIV for now
MG Sengoku Astray: nice looking but still need further photos before any judgement
MG Destiny Astray: mixed feeling for this, for 1: i like the purple scheme 2: lazy mod kitbash by bandai
MG Phenex: the chrome & the price @@ . nice , tempting to get....
MG Gundam X: On my buy list
RG Exia: initially thought next wld be IJ but think i know why they release this 1 . be getting (if exclusive roll out, trans am) . i wonder will they slapped in Avalanche exia dash with the HG parts
HGUC Banshee Norn Destroy Mode: awaiting better picture
HGUC Ball Gundam Thunderbolt Ver.: not on my lis.
HGUC Kshatriya Repair: suspected release but i prefer the Robot damashii Kshatriya which i think is way better than HG
HGUC FA Unicorn Destroy Mode (Green Psychoframe): expected release
HGAC Wing Zero TV: need to wait for more pictures
HGCC Turn-A: prefer the MG
HGCE Aile Strike & Strike Rouge:does the aile pack have hidden gimmick?
HGBF Build Strike Upgrade (with WoL): i think the WOL is a hidden gimmick in the anime but i find it ugly
HGBF GM Sniper K9: big ass rifle
HGBF Kampher Amazing: nice looking kit
HGBF Qubeley Papillion: looks fat
MG TURN-X: thats unexpected announcement .....

but to prevent my wallet going into abyss...next yr i just concentrate on RG (get them all), certain MG kits , robot damashii & some of the RG/MG/damshii exclusive

Well, and the hands are newer.
Basically, I wouldn't mind it if Bandai re-released the Wing EW and Wing Zero Custom MGs with a similar tweaked design as the Proto Zero.

Didn't know where to ask this, but does anyone know a place that carries the GS Destiny Astray photonovels? One that ships internationally at least.

The peg that connect forbidden with it's crabshell broke!

Now I need to see if there's Build Custom that can be used as replacement unit. Perhaps Mk.II booster when it came here.

MG Turn X is a June release, nothing announced between February and then.
Even if you count out a month due to RG exia there are still some MG kits Bandai is keeping under wraps.
I'm guessing least one is another Build fighter kit and another is probably for unicorn Ep7. (Episode Airs in May).

You're forgetting something. Check that link. You'll know what I mean.
Bandai is doing something totally unconventional in regards to the 1 MG per month thing.

Also, the RG releases and MG releases don't interfere with each other in regards to how many a month. I think.

Maybe December 2014's big MG release will be like a MG Hi-Nu Gundam Ver. Ka?

And given Bandai's apparent lust in spamming out online exclusives and now doing multiple MGs a month, it's going to be a crazy filled year, and I really get a bad feeling that we're going to be getting some of our favorite 'variation' suits as online exclusive.

A few things to keep in mind:

The entire reason that "1 MG per month" no longer applies is due to the unannounced but very apparent retirement of the 1/100 NG line. In return, the MG line has now taken over for the 1/100 releases, which applies to all the new series since Age, including Build Fighters.

That's mainly why we have a whooping of 3 MGs for Build Fighters in February.

Based on this, I fully expect MG X Maoh and MG Wing Fenice to take up some of the March, April, or May slots. Actually, while we're at it, a Zaku Amazing, Kampher Amazing, and even Quebeley Pavillon are also likely to get released. Depending on their popularity, some of them might be Online-Exclusives, but they're simple enough mods that they should get released in some form.

What else can we expect?

With the whole new MG Strike, probably a MG Akatsuki, for starters. Yes, it already has a good 1/100 NG, but Bandai would be a fool not to jump onto that bandwagon and throw in a few modification for essentially two new MGs.

With UC Ep 7 coming out, Banshee Norn is almost guaranteed to get released some time this year, likely in May or sharing the June spot with Turn X.

X-Divider may almost hit around this time, seeing as how its also reusing the MG X frame.

Outside of these 3, the other suits are probably more up in the air. I would personally like a Legend to coincide with the ending of Seed Destiny Remastered, but seeing as how we still don't have a glimpse of Providence or Justice, its very much up in the air.

What am I forgetting? That Wiki tells me nothing I dont already know. There are still 3 blank months for MGs until Turn X is released.

RG releases do effect MG releases. This current month with RG Strike freedom is an example.

MG Kshatriya has a better chance for that December 2014, especially since the HG is getting another version released which just proves its popularity as a design.

Look at Bandai being so sneaky.
I'm actually a bit disappointed that GG didn't catch this.

That's clearly the Roll Out ver.
Why would they even display it, if it wasn't coming out. I'm just saying... Just saying.

First, it's ABS, so epoxy don't work well (I actually glued Overflag's broken ankle and it's PERFECT), do you know what's the material preferred for this?

second, apparently the connector is one way, no way to retrieve the broken peg that get in so deep it was practically rape. (no really I wasn't exaggerating)

Gluing both part without the missing peg (still inside) didn't work either

Plastic cement is usually the way to go with plastic, as it fuses the parts thats being glued


Dang, since the peg broke in the hole you have 3 options:

1. Try to extract it, but this is going to be hell
2. If you dont mind the backpack in a fixed pose you can glue the pack and the part of the peg still attached to it back into the hole, fusing both parts of the peg and the hole of the peg
3. Use the kit as a base for something new

Fortunately, it has two mounting/something (I don't know the terms, but they fit well), so in fixed position no glue is needed. But it can't transform properly anymore.

Ah well, I might build it into either custom action base or a flying platform as soon as I get the Mk.II Booster

I might try to get gundam cement, but can't get one soonish.
