both packs come together, so unless you are one AWESOME fan of the Strike you will end up buying 2 to be able to display BOTH Sword and Launcher at the same time. Personally I will get this only for the Sword pack, the Launcher was my less favorite Striker pack

LightningZERO 2008-03-02 20:43

I think I will wait for the Strike with all packs included :p

holy $h1t, what a GREAT idea to continue ripping us off!!!!!!!!!!! >_<


let's see... its Aile, IWSP, Launcher, Sword, the one of the Noir and the missing Lightning and the GunBarrel packs, maybe Bandai will include one of the last two to try to tempt us -_-

philmein 2008-03-03 01:15

Wow, honestly, instead if milking the Strike series, why doesn't effin' Bandai release other models like, lets say, an MG Nightengale or possibly Gundam X, OR an MG Exia? I like the Strike series, but come on, it's getting redundant.

beamknight87 2008-03-03 01:52

there are several MG's that shouldn't even be on that line. Bandai has ignored a whole bunch of awesome designs that would make amazing MG's. Who and how he decides the MG lineup since the Unicorn should be shot (several times) in my opinion: notin' but remakes!

sword.impulse 2008-03-03 02:29

Yeah, i wish bandai would have more varied timelines for MG releases.

Here's my top 5, add yours too!

1. Turn X
2. Gundam X
3. Wing Zero (non-katoki)
4. Overflag
5. Justice/Infinite Justice

Honorable Mention: Rest of stargazers: Stargazer/Blu Duel/Verde Buster

Rey Za Burrel 2008-03-03 02:54

my list : :D
1/ Deathscythe ( ver Ka )
2/ Graham's Flag
3/ GX
4/ Legend

philmein 2008-03-03 02:56

lol....

Honestly, the one model, actually, three models I DESIRE are the MG Epyon, Nightengale, and Tallgeese III.

I will die happy knowing that one of the three would be made..

Astrana 2008-03-03 02:58

hmmm tough question for me, since they already have MGs for my favorite gundams. I wouldn't mind to see Master Asia with it's horse that would be pretty sweet. I can't really think of anything right now..

anything Hazel from Advanced Z

beamknight87 2008-03-03 02:59

In my humble opinion, MG desperately needs:

1.- Gundam Double X
2.- Gundam Mk III
3.- Shin Musha Gundam
4.- Akatsuki (although this one would be a $ b1tch due to the gold coating and both backpacks >_<)
5.- Any of the 00 Gundams
6.- Justice/Infinite Justice
7.- V2 Assault Buster
8.- Phoenix Gundam
9.- RX-78-2/Nu Gundam Ver. EVOLVE
10.- Gundam Astray (any color and/or variant)

What do you think?

Astrana 2008-03-03 03:15

Good Ideas, I wouldn't mind to see some Gundams from 00F, 00V... Exia Avalanche or Dynames Torpedo ^^

Astrana 2008-03-03 03:25

For me, the most needed striker packs for MG Strike are the Sword & Launcher. It's a good idea to buy this guy and the Rouge, then display the AILE Strike and Launcher Rouge for the first time.

By the way, how about MG Stargazer with lighting gimmick?

Heck yeah for Turn X, it has always been one of the most badass non-gundam mobile suit.

Spoiler for 1/100 Gundam Astraea:


Spoiler for HG Gundam Throne Drei:


Spoiler for MG Strike Gundam w/ Launcher & Sword Striker:

duckroll 2008-03-03 07:14

That HG Drei looks really ugly. Pretty bad choice of color for the molding. It's probably the worst recent HG I've seen, because most 00 HGs look pretty good. :/

LightningZERO 2008-03-03 07:14

Astraea? Since it's a mod of Exia I guess the 1/100 of it is pretty much confirmed, and it turns out pretty awesome too! Strike with Launcher and Sword Packs are looking good as well

Throne Drei is disappointing though, especially the head

dodgethis_sg 2008-03-03 07:36

Include a figure of Neena with Drei and I'll buy five boxes. :D

duotiga 2008-03-03 07:39

I am getting the Astrea for the Gn Canon & Gn Proto Sword.....Drei is disappointing.....

Sir Dearka 2008-03-03 09:06

Wow... The Astraea looks just too cool...

But I'm still waiting for Plutone :)

I want my MG Guntank! XD And since RX-78 2.0 is on the way, why not give the GM a 2.0 treatment as well, eh Bandai? But seriously, they're most likely working on an MG Exia as we speak, so expect to see a prototype mold either this summer or before season two airs. ;)

And, umm... Just an out-of-the-blue question: Are the Striker packs in the FG kits compatible with the HG 1/144 Strike?

they are compatible

beamknight87 2008-03-03 11:39

hey, the Astraea looks very cool, more than Exia in my opinion

lol, you sure an RX-78 2.0 is coming soon? Is there really a need for one? The OYW version seemed like such a huge improvement over the v. 1 and 1.5 models that a 2.0 doesn't seem necessary.

That's what I thought, too. But they did announce it, and someone posted about it several pages back. We've yet to see a proof of it, though.

The OYW's bottom half still uses the same leg structure that the 1.5 uses. The only thing improved upon was the top half, though barely because of the lack of the core fighter. It's more of a ver 1.75 than a 2.0

So, here's my game plan: if there's no proof or indication of a version 2.0 within two to three months, then I'll just go ahead and buy the OYW model. Then again, waiting that long is too damn hard. So.....lol.....I can't make any promises. Everytime I look at the model, I just want to instantly buy it 'cause it's so damn beautiful...blah....

we're the same, in my case for the Exia. Waiting for a MG lol

*checks dalong*

You're right. I didn't realized that up until now. I thought the OYW frame was pretty unique and revolutionary... Guess not. :S My demand for a 2.0 is stronger than ever now! I want a complicated frame that can hold a Core Fighter inside!

You can always buy the OYW now, and buy the 2.0 later if it ever comes out. I'm guessing you're bothered by having two kits of the same model?

philmein 2008-03-03 20:55

^
I wouldn't say bothered, more like I'm a guy who is on a super tight budget. Sure if I made bank, I'd definitely buy one now and buy the next version later (should it come out).

You should also be aware that the Sword Pack is compatible with the HG Strike if you mod the pack slightly. Instructions for doing so are included though.

jackyng222 2008-03-03 23:01

anyone have some spare parts from the back pack of a Master Grade Wing Zero Custom?

beamknight87 2008-03-03 23:39

lol, just finished separating the pieces of the PG Skygrasper from the runners and packed it in a box along the RX-78-2 OYW. Guess this puny plane will be the last thing I will have the motivation to work on -_-

Fome 2008-03-04 00:10

I have a modeling question. How does one go about panel lining over a painted surface? I usually clean up panel lines by rubbing with tissue or scraping with a toothpick, but if the surface is already painted, wouldn't I destroy the coat of paint?

sword.impulse 2008-03-04 00:56

I usually take two roads. Sometimes if i feel lucky, i still go about the cleaning process as i normally would, but that only works on some colors like gray ( I use gundam markers) or, line the panels, then paint over with marker, but try to avoid the crevice which i just did. If you're lucky, it should pass over without any paint getting in it, and you have a lined panel. Hope that helps.
