Will get the MG also, but when will it be rlst? can take a year or so? If so I will sell the 1/100 kit like I did with Freedom and Destiny....

The only improvement I can see for a master grade exia is the proportions & maybe an attempt at the sparkle boarder-line wings of light effect.

Anyhow heres a couple of new pictures of my destiny master grade:

Maybe end of next year, depending on how popular Exia is...

I just did my Destiny today, here are some honest opinions

I think the Destiny MG SP version doesn't look that anymore fantastic compared to the normal one... the chrome plates will have visible chip-off marks(then again I am not a professional model kit builder so to those of you who have the ability to do it better then it shouldn't be a problem for you) and the "action" parts seem really out of placed imo... The only thing that visibly attracts me are the Wings of light... Otherwise the normal version I think is good enough... So for those who missed the SP I think the normal version is good enough...

On a lighter note, I am pretty interested in Exia... it looks kick-ass... will wait for the MG. Why do I think it will have an MG? It is as important as strike is to Gundam Seed and since Strike got MGed I am at least 75% sure it is gonna get MGed

I think most people buy Destiny Extreme Blast just for the Wings of Light effect only

Proportions on the 1/100 model look a bit chunky, the head still has an ugly seamline right down the middle like the 1/144.

Usually the head seam (on gundams) is across the head not straight down the middle. But because of the shape of exias head with the round discs on either side, so there are some exceptions.

Oh crap you're right. I said that without even looking at the pics of the model kit, just assuming it was like all the others as far as seams

While I very much prefer Katoki's version of the Wing mecha, these custom models are absolutely HAWT DAMN AWESOME

Spoiler for MG Wing Gundam Zero original design:

I disagree, the master grade katoki version of wing gundam is exactly the same as wing zero custom with different wings & weapons. That wing gundam kitbash/scratch build (one of the left) is what wing gundam should look like.

I like the Ver.Ka Wing Gundam better, maybe that's because I totally dig Wing Gundam Zero Custom. But the original Wing Zero looks great too
