But they're unlikely to have such.

So far only moe characters and memes get into Figma and Revoltech Fraulein. Action characters get on to Revoltech, like Fist of the North Star and Street Fighter.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they had a crossdressing Tieria figure sometime in the future. <3

seeing the hole on 1/100 seravee knee cannons, i think they will give it the 6 beam sabers gimmick

Now try to imagine you slanting the original blade sideways, tip down on the ground and have the Impluse wield it in it's right arm. Then get another one to join in on the top, I would imagine the handle of the top one to be too up or down for it to be wield by the left arm. Likewise if you have the original blade to be wield from the top by the left arm first.

If anyone had 2 of those Excalibur from the MG Impluse, could you try my theory out ?

Looking at the image of the MG Sword Impulse in the pose wielding the combined Excaliburs, the left hand doesn't seem to have a problem with wielding the thing at all, as expected - no matter the length of the actual blade, compensations and adjustments can be made using the Impulse's superior arm poseability, coupled with the fact that the hilts on the Excaliburs are very long in the first place, allowing the hand's grip to be adjusted along their length and giving leeway in gripping them (note that the right hand in the image grips towards the blade guard, while the left grips towards the pommel). With the grips on both being very close to the Impulse's center when wielded in such a fashion, whether the blades are long or not is irrelevant in that issue. The Impulse can raise its arm directly above the shoulder, and the grips are shown to be no higher than it's chest, nothing that its arm can't reach.

Of note is that both blades are wielded at maximum length, as shown by the fact that they placed the crystal clear blades on them (obviously from the Force Impulse, since you can see one of them having the beam edge tip).

I see your point, but I'm still curios about how long the present blade is. Is it short enough that when you place it upright on the back of the MG Force Impluse, you can put the grip of the sword in the Impluse's hand ?

We do have Figma Lelouch and Figma Suzaku, however.

And if I'm not mistaken, Max Factory did make a custom Figma of Lacus some time back.

That is why I said memes lol

Spinzaku and Lelouch are mega meme generators with lots of hilarious poses to make, that's why Figma got them in.

Custom Lacus is fan made I think, you'd be surprised at what the fans are doing for Figma and Nendoroid. Japanese can create stuff out of thin air lol

OMG!!! that Astray are really awesome.Err...the side armor skirt & the elbow can really open.:twitch:

C.A. 2009-02-06 08:34

Yea its amazingly detailed. I'm not sure what the elbow piece is for, but the side armour is the rack to hold the Gerbera Straight's sheath.

MakubeX2 2009-02-06 08:36

Err....

Not too sure whether we're thinking the same, but from the earlier elbow joint pic, I already thought maybe this model will get extra parts that can upgrade it to Powered Red. Combined with your pics, I think it might be true.

Is this what you're thinking?

Nope, for the price we are paying for the kit, I believe the back piece should be consisting of at least 2-3 blocks instead on one single piece of plastic for a more realistic effect.

And for a PG kit, I expect the area below the cockpit to have some mechanical detail instead of just an empty space.

lol I see, really different opinions. I really thought the areas you pointed out are for extra parts.

But I do see your point, if Bandai did indeed have plans for add-ons for the kit, then all is forgiven.

Oh wait lol, after further scrutiny I have made a conclusion:

The elbow joint is for holding the shield as seen in your first pic.

The part at the hips, should be for holding the beam rifle. Most Seed Gundams hold their beam rifles behind there.

LoweGear 2009-02-06 09:28

The vice-like part for the hip on the left side of the PG Red Frame is actually for the Gerbera Straight's sheath, as shown on previous material. The beam rifle has a more basic hardpoint for it on the other side.

Yea I pointed that out on post #10770.

But when I refered to hips at my previous post, its the hardpoint of Makube's 1st pic. He circled and question marked the spot which seems to be a rifle holding hardpoint.

I suspect that those are indeed multiple pieces, but colored the same. This is probably just a preliminary, simplified mockup color scheme. If anyone remembers the prototype Hi-Nu Gundam, it lacked many of the color details that the final version had, such as metallic parts. So I wouldn't be too worried if I were you.

You do have a bit of a point about the area underneath the cockpit though. It seems awfully barren for a PG kit...
