So it's a kitbash? Looks pretty good, but then again the photo is pretty blurry. It's sad that Bandai ignored the Blast Impulse, but that's not surprising considering that many people (including me) don't seem to give a damn about Impulse.

If you're that sure its a 1/100 than its definitely a kitbash as 1/100 Blast Impulse was never made. S-Destiny had a badly managed line of models, they didn't make ones for a large majority of the regular MS. Blast Impulse, Gaia, Abyss and Windam's to name a couple and a ridiculous ammount of Zaku re-colours.

It's very likely that Bandai has a finished 1/100 or 1/144 HG Blast backpack and has had it since early SEED-D, they can sit on stuff for quite some time before it's released, especially if they feel that it may not be as popular as they would hope at the time it's released.

Or, they're well aware of kitbashing, and are just milking people's money.

They did make a 1//144 Blast backpack hence why I thought it was 1/144 and on that note thats what kinda confuses me why they never made a 1/100 Blast.

I think it was mentioned on gunota that bandai were looking into the blast impulse design for the existing 1/100 scale kit. Seriously all that needs to be done is remold the colours of the armour and make the blast silhouette. The blast pack is not a complicated design either, should be cheaper to do than re-releasing tons of EXF kits they keep churning out. Bandai really need to start releasing new kits!

What Bandai needs to do is start working on kits that rivals that of Hasegawa's Macross line in terms of details and decals.

I still think Saviour's new wings look odd. But the rest of the model looks really sharp, so I can't complain. And no mention of a stand.. ahh damn.

I like the idea of the Kerberos heads being a component of the Wizard pack. It also makes sense plot-wise, as it is cheaper to build packs and retrofitting them on Bucues than to build entirely new MSs for such a minor role as a melee upgrade.

The extra heads function as flexible "arms" that have built in mouth-canons and beam blades. I can imagine this to be handy if the pilot is skillful enough; but operating two extra appendages in battle isn't anywhere as easy as it might sound, perhaps even harder than using Dragoons.

How about putting one of those on a Dom? That would look good in a Jet-stream attack.

Oh, another thing; the Stargazer Gundam model kit's manual apparently would tell you all about its capabilities, but since we won't get it until November it would be too late. By then all of us would be spoiled on all matters Stargazer related.

It mentions that the Stargazer model has the same lighting effect in the show?

Still... how could they afford it? It's a HG!

A 1680 yen 1/144 scale model kit can't have a powered lighting system... Hell, even Master Grades don't get that kind of treatment. Unless some ingenious invention was thought up in the Bandai labs, powered lights theoretically was reserved only for Perfect Grades...

Still, one can dream.

Maybe a retooling of the PG line with two or maybe even three a year?

Also, HIGH GRADE BUCUE!!
