Isn't the GN Drive responsible for the mobile suits' atmospheric flight? If so, I don't see why they need to put the Flag's wings back.

Doesn't mean that the Flag would go well without it's wings on. It'd be a totally different suit without it's wings since it completely changes the shape of the suit. It'd make more sense to put them back on if only to maintain the Flag's shape so that the suit's balance isn't changed. Better to put it back how it was as much as possible so that Graham has less adjustments to make to how it flies.

I see; that does make sense. Seeing how the Flag's aerodynamic relies heavily on its wings, it would indeed be a bad idea to remove its wings in favor of the GN Drive. And now, I wonder how the Flag will handle its transformation now that a bulky GN Drive is installed on its back?

Who needs to fly when you can float?

I'd be sad to see the wings go, but the flag's upper torso doesn't really switch directions when it transforsm, so it doesn't really make a difference what kind of engine you slap on it's back.

So is $18 US dollars too much for HG 1/144 Kyrios, or not? I never got a clear answer, probably because I didn't give a clear description before.

it's a fair price, exia and dynames were around 14, kyrios and virtue are bit more expensive, 18 is good

I'm sorry; I got carried away a little... Anyway, yeah, coming from a local hobby store, $18 is a reasonable price. So go for it!

I'm not getting that bad of a model whoring vibe from Bandai in 00 ... yet. Seed Destiny I think was about the worst I've ever seen model whoring, honestly.

At least within the construct of the story, it makes SENSE why there is the Overflag and Graham wanting to outfit a GN drive to one, etc. And besides that each power bloc only has the single MS model it seems, unlike previous series where they had lots of variants.

Now assuming they are probably going to release kits based on the Gundams from the 00P/00F mangas, then that is model whoring ;D

cleaning my room today and discovered all the HG box already stack up about 3 feet. Saw the pre-order of Drei and Nadleeh on HLJ not as hyped as before, I guess episode 22 just ruined the 00 vibe for me bah...

JediKnight

Seed was kind bad too. Strike, Allie Strike, Sowrd Strike, Launcher Strike... but at least aegis, duel... have different structures. but all 4 CB gundam has similar structures, same with Throne, not to mention about flags and tierens. I built most of the HGs but feels like only built 4 so far...

*shrug* They can offer all the models they want, doesn't mean you have to buy them

Wait until the show ends and only pick the ones you like most?

It's a real shame that all those MG models are nothing more than "milked" models.

It'd definately be better if they alternated between the endless alternate versions of MG's already out and new ones. At the minute it's endless alternate versions. I'm out of models to buy. Once the last 3 arrive I have nothing to do once they're built
