has there been like an updated versions of those retro 80's DX hilariously-off-model-design-totally not an MSV RX-78-2 action figures?, you know, these Gundams had these random strange add-ons & weapons like massive spring loaded missile launchers, broad swords, medieval knight shields, SWAT shields, & uh..... rolling wheels on its body to assume 'truck mode' in Daimos style,
well in the form today's kits or figures like Robot Damashii?
to me they put the Perfect & Full Armor Gundams to shame, also good parody fodder to celebrate the anniversary :heh:

- It's more like a combindation of the Dra-C and Marasai heads to me. I also have a sort-of Sazabi vibe from it, but that's probably just because of the name and the more Zeonic look. Not liking the purple, but the white actually fits the "Lucifer" moniker (Lucifer being the "Angel of Light" in Jewish and later Christian religion). Just wish it was different shades of white with a few red or black highlights (to fit a "Fallen Angel" motif).

Which begs the question why they refer to it as a "Gundam" even though the head and overall design doesn't look like either a traditional Gundam nor does it have any similarity with the G-Self, G-Arcane or even the G-Aion. (well maybe a few similarities with the G-Aion in terms of the design 'feel', but...)

Granted, I'm not following the series lately so I don't know if there's a story explanation for it, but...

Dra-C I'm showing the Unicorn version because pics of the 0083 version are too dark to be clear:

I suppose not all the G-units in GReco are gundam types, nor do I ever recall hearing the term either

In the latest episode it was revealed that the G-Self was indeed made in Towasanga, and was a prototype unit that was rejected for mass-production. It would not surprise me if the Lucifer here is a more recent prototype, as its aesthetics go along with the current moon forces MS in many areas.

Is that a clone of eva01?
It looks nice though.

HGBF Rival MS A
HGBC Rival MS A's Build-custom
SDBF Rival MS B


So would that be Transient Gundam, Transient Gundam's backpack, and Shia's Gunpla (SD)?
Hmm. Along with Wing Gundam Zero Hono, March will be full of treasures.

Transient does not really have a distinct backpack though, more likely its a weapons part set for it

And as for the SD I bet its Lady Kawaguchi's





On a completely separate note:

Why are the 1/100 SEED DESTINY Zakus so hard to find for a good price? In all the main model sites I checked they were sold out/back-ordered/long out of stock

I can only seem to find them on Ebay or Amazon for varying prices, most which are overpriced to some degree

Whats up with that? Are they just really getting that old/hard to find?

Im asking because Im really in the mood to get one right now, mainly a Phantom, but I dont mind the normal/Gunner

- You think you have problems? My friend Jason is still bugging me to convert a 1/100 Seed Destiny Zaku Warrior into an MG (using an MG Zaku II as the inner frame), and I told him I'll do it once I find a 1/100 Zaku Warrior to chop up. And the prices they go for make it financially impossible for me to get that project started.

I hope so (rather than Shia), since we've already seen that. Three female characters using SDs would mean it's officially become a trend, and one I don't like.

~Destiny~ 2015-01-11 14:25

But both of the gundams Lady Kawaguchi used on screen have already been released

Dang, I feel ya, cheapest I can find is about $35 including shipping/no shipping, which is a bit more than what I am willing to pay tops

Must be even worse for you since you have to get a MG 2.0 zaku on top of that with whatever supplies you are going to need :P

Has the SD been released already? Im not that familiar with BB SD kits so I had no idea

~Destiny~ 2015-01-11 19:37

Unless I missed an episode or something, I remeber her using the Stargazer pre-Kawaguchi status, and the BB Legend Zero Gundam during her fight with the captain girl whose name escapes me atm

Patriot's Blade 2015-01-11 21:08

so whatever happen to that MG Gafran that people talked about back in the day?

Scrapped more likely than not, or stashed away into some dark place until they actually feel like making it

Blazer-X 2015-01-11 22:52

Given how AGE bombed, probably scrapped for a very long time.

Heck, I am still waiting for AGE 3 and AGE FX.

Skye629 2015-01-12 03:58

Anyone has the 1/100 Chaos by any chance? I stumbled across the kit while looking around for those damn SEED Zakus (seems like Amazon is my only hope for them being under $40, and even then its only the Phantom's, for some reason the Gunner and the Warrior are more expensive)

IMO everything looks good on the 1/100 Chaos ASIDE from the head, it seems a bit too big

Always been a big fan of the design and colors (easily one of my top 10 SEED units), but never considered the kit for some reason

Thoughts?

Rising Dragon 2015-01-15 01:17

It appears that Shia's Gunpla will be getting a kit.

http://i.imgur.com/2yhQXzY.jpg

Apparently, its name is Gundam Portanto, or something along those lines. The name is ポータント. It could be Potanto, Portanto, which is Portugese for "Therefore", or Portent, as an omen.

Blazer-X 2015-01-15 02:42

Whoever mentioned Sakibure as the inspiration was spot-on. The thing literally looks like a Gundam-fied Sakibure with pixie theme backpack.
