Oh, and which parts of the Sparrow which are flimsy or like to pop out?:confused:

I've just finished snapfitting my MG Deathscythe Hell. It's just like you said, a fantastic and cool kit! :D

they are both pretty flimsy but the zeta 2.0 seems to be a little more stable^^
but i think i prefer the delta plus! not because of the build quality but simply because of the looks. i just love that sexy beast...

the entire legs of the sparrow like to fall of, the connection between the wrists and the rest of the arms is very lose, the arms like to fall apart when not put together absolutely perfectly and the cockpit hatch is kinda lose.
but once you have it all put together properly and in a pose it actually stays together and keeps that pose, so it isnt THAT bad^^

and yeah, the MG deathscythe hell is awesome! definitely my favorite of the MG wing kits so far! i only have put together two of them though to be honest...^^; still waiting for MG nataku, heavyarms kai and sandrock kai :P as i said before, i buy the upgraded suits only because i dont want to buy what is essentially the same model twice.

You might want to reconsider after seeing Bandai's announcement to MG the new Gundams from the currently ongoing Wing novel.

So, Bandai will just abandon the Kai MGs altogether and content with the HG 1/100?:confused:

Damn! These new Gundams from the novel better worth it :mad:.

In canon, those Frozen Teardrops Gundams will be the final evolution/variation of the Basic EW Gundams.

What I meant to say is if those novel Gundams does eventually be MGed and they retain the same basic shape and outline of the current EW Gundams (which is most likely), you might consider holding out from purchasing the "upgraded" EW Gs.

i know what you meant^^ but ive started to collect the EW MGs so i would prefer to continue to do so! but oh well, we will just have to wait and see where they are going with this.

HasuMasu 2012-05-20 04:33

Really now? And here I was thinking they'd be all for an actual release...

It's so predictable :rolleyes:.

For me, I guess I'll just paint the MG AGE-2 Norm. It's pretty easy. Just spray the entire thing white :D.

After all, I also plan to buy MG 00 7 Sword and paint it into the red "inspection" color.
The limited HG 7 Sword Inspection doesn't worth the over-$40 price.

suiton629 2012-05-20 08:35

I bet we're going to get a "limited" MG release of the MG Age-2 Normal Spy Team (aka white Age-2 Normal)...

gundamdrawer 2012-05-20 11:20

hmm i just wanna ask. is there anyone here from the philippines who joined the gunpla model competition which is being held at sm north edsa?

Appel 2012-05-20 14:02

and im done, i just finished the third MG that i got on my trip to japan, the RX-78-2 2.0^^
its amazing... it looks so very simple but the amount of details inside is just great! pistons everywhere, a great core fighter and the joints are just right, not too lose and not too tight. and nothing is falling off.
and on top of it all, it looks exactly like the machine that i saw kick some ass in the anime!

Well, I didn't have the time so, nope. I didn't even watched Unicorn 05 there.

teh_nubkilr 2012-05-20 22:08

Out of curiosity, how likely is it that an HGUC Full Armour Unicorn will be released in the near future? The cover art for episode 6 shows the FA Unicorn, suggesting it'll be in the OVA, and it is possible that its overwhelming arsenal might appeal to some UC fans.

since i buy mostly MGs (and since i do own the MG FA unicorn anyway :P) i havent really given that much thought...
the MG version sold VERY well. and all HG unicorn kits have sold well so far too. this would be a very large HG release though, similar to the HG kshatriya. for bandai this probably means that planning this kit is rather difficult because they have to make it look right but it also has to be cost efficient.
personally im sure that they will release it. its only about when they will release it and how much it will cost :P

Appel 2012-05-21 09:05

and two new exclusive MGs in bandais online store! XD
http://gundamguy.blogspot.de/2012/05...e-mg_8295.html
http://gundamguy.blogspot.de/2012/05...ive-mg_21.html

real type gundam and real type chars zaku II.
man, they really are trying to make as much money in that store as possible, arent they :P although its not exactly a bad thing. that way certain kits and color variations that never had a chance at being released are now an option for bandai.
however, that also means that people outside of japan have a really hard time to get them at a decent price!

suiton629 2012-05-21 09:45

Who here thinks we might get limited releases for:

MG Exia R2
MG Age-1 Normal (Flat)
MG Age-2 Normal (White)

since bandai is throwing around so many of these limited kits lately i think the R2 and the white AGE-2 have a really good chance to be released like that.
the AGE-1 flat doesnt have a chance at all though in my opinion... only the "A" is covered up, at least the white AGE-2 would have to be molded in a different color :P

Well, they could include parts for the Zefuld Launchers (the backpack thing), and also clear yellow parts for the eyes & camera.

http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/AGE-1F_Gundam_AGE-1_Flat

Oh and I hope that Gundam AGE-2 Dark Hound comes out as well eventually.

I'm still a bit concerned as to why Bandai isn't releasing the Woolf suits in MG...

RGE-B790CW Genoace Custom
WMS-GB5 G-Bouncer
WMS-GEX1 G-Exes

suiton629 2012-05-21 10:22

Hey and uh..

I've been wondering.

Do you think that later, Bandai might release a MG Wing Gundam Zero (TV) and a newly molded MG Wing Gundam Zero Custom??

the Age-2 Normal (White) has a pretty good chance as it is only a color variation. As for the other 2 it won't be that simple as they'll have to make changes to the mold, they'll probably come out as regular releases whenever they get made.

And I didn't know you are also in the Philippines!:heh:

Anyway, I just joined the IPMS in my city. And apparently my first task is to build at least one kit to their quality standards for the upcoming nationals that we are going to host this coming October. Since the members who are joining the Military category are total beasts(someone built a 1/350 F/A-18 Hornet and opened up its canopy and added an ejection seat with awesome detail!:twitch:), I was just thinking of going for the Sci-fi category. I'll either do my Unicorn Gundam custom build, F-15C AC0 Cypher colors, or the YF-29 Durandal Sheryl Marking ver. to be displayed on the event.

I also heard that some Gundam fan groups will also come to this event probably with some kits of their own to be displayed. Once October comes, I'll share the pics.

You think those will be regular releases? I feel like Bandai is going to make them a limited edition release and then if sales are good, maybe make it regular... Kind of like what they did with those LED units for the 00 MG kits. =D

I mean with all my involvement and presence in the GunPla community, I would hope that someone from Bandai has been notified of my persistence and desires. =P

Yes I know I sound like a broken record and I sound to be a bit crazy..lol.. But when there is something I really want, I go all the way. =D

if by "involvement and presence in the GunPla community" you mean your constant "I WANT THOSE KITS!" and your 10 comments in the previous gundamguy contest where you were only supposed to leave a single comment then no, im sure they havent noticed you :P there is a difference between being involved and just wanting something. the first one gets you more attention and the latter makes you look like everyone else, just slightly more annoying.

Nothing wrong with the wing zero custom MG (keep your overblown complaints about it)

1. can't even hold the buster rifle without any fidgeting.
2. feather pieces are super loose
3. lack of full inner frame
4. uses the old style of stands...can't even fit on an action base 1

If they remolded a new one in the same quality as the other EW Wing MG kits, there wouldn't be so much of an issue.

Also, the Wing is the lead suit of the series so I was very disappointed when they reused the old MG Wing Zero Custom for the MG Wing EW.. :frustrated:

RX93-2 2012-05-21 16:36

1: Model kit, not toy. able to be fixed within 5 minutes.
2: Layer of glue or paint, looseness isn't bad in the first place.
3: Who cares? It has enough frame and its perfectly serviceable
4: Use the normal action base connectors supplied with Action Base 1, Have some patience.

Not seeing the major flaws, some suits like GP01, Alex, GP03, Ground Gundam deserve a redo much more.
Also the Wing Version Ka came 6 releases before the WZC, so WZC used the wing ver Ka frame and not the other away around.

maknaedik 2012-05-21 19:29

Are there any kits that nike complained and whined about all over the net that has been fulfilled yet?

Anyway, do you think there's a good chance that MG DB will come next right after Age-2N? Since they did it with Age-1, most of us will think that they will. But so far, it hasn't been announced while Age-1N, Titus and Spallow releases has been mentioned altogether.

The chances are VERY high considering AGE is still a hot property and AGE-2 (& its variant) is a main Gundam. bandai only have to rebuilt few parts from the Norm version. So, those who’s waiting for MG DB shouldn’t worry, I guess ;).

And yeah, Nike's posts has become more & more annoying. He just keep asking the same thing even though some posters already answered it for him REPEATEDLY :eyebrow:.

i think that depends on how well the AGE-1 sparrow and titus sold. if the variations didnt sell too well and most people just got the AGE-1 normal then they might hold back the DB a lttle to increase the demand at least a little bit.

Glad you noticed that.

If you compared the HGUC, MG and animated version of the Banshee, you noticed we never have a definative version of how the Armed Armour is supposed to look and worked.

Blamed Bandai in their haste to make the toys sells.

HasuMasu 2012-05-22 10:32

And since the model came out before its appearance people didn't even know? That's not cool.

pumpkins 2012-05-22 10:45

sooo.. an OVA version to correct this? :(

Appel 2012-05-22 10:53

i didnt notice that yet. that really is a shame...
but the banshee is essentially just a recycled unicorn. maybe they just didnt want to spend as much money on developement. plus im sure that this isnt the last time we saw that mold being used, maybe a future version will indeed fix it.
and its also true that this weapon looks a little different on the HG version.

im currently building my HG danazine. its a very fun kit, especially since its so very different from other bandai models^^ i have finished the head and the neck section, it really is a pretty cool model and very detailed. its impressive how far the HG line has come!
so far i can recommend this guy =D

The size of the Armed Armour on the HG is in tune with the linearts, but their size is enlarged on the MG to accomodate the transformation machism.
