1/144 Danazine up at AmiAmi...and already sold out. So...people like the dragon thing now? :eyebrow:

Woah. Never noticed before its "ears" could fold up in front of its face like that. Awesome.

Bandai should reprint the discontinued decals...

according to syd, the guy who hosts HLJs gunpla TV on youtube, the decals are available again... he mentioned that on the latest episode which was uploaded on the 25th and he said they are available on HLJ again. but they are still listed as discontinued :T
i think you should keep an eye open for them on HLJ, maybe they will be in stock again there soon!

speaking of decals and syd, on his website (http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/) he mentioned in his MG banshee review that you can actually order the golden waterslide decals for the limited version of the banshee from bandai! the decal sheet is considered a part of the model, so you can order a "replacement" for it^^

In the end, the redesigned chest for the OVA gunpla is a little bit tacky.

What exactly was changed on the chest? I've looked for a comparison on the web. They mentioned the legs, v-fin, head and weapons, but nothing about the chest...

indeed. i prefer the simpler chest that is closer to the design of the unicorn.
ive been thinking about giving it the armored arm VN instead of the beam magnum...

the OVA banshee has a yellow piece above the cockpit hatch and a yellow collar:

and that does ineed look a bit tacky in my opinion^^

Thank goodness backlogs exist! My fellow members in my local IPMS are selling me their 1/144 Full Saber kits!:D I already bought one and I'll buy a second one on Monday.

duotiga 2012-04-28 06:05

Yea the banshee ova yellow collar extends compared to the ver ka which is the normal collar.

i like that the banshees that we both built are so different^^ that way we have photos of the OVA version and the novel version which makes it easier for others to decide which version they want and if they want to buy the banshee in the first place!

but personally i still really prefer the novel design. it has the same clean look to it as the unicorn but it has just a little more color to make it stand out.

at first i was a also little pissed that bandai changed the armor color to a dark blue. because that way even if you do build it as the novel version it isnt 100% ver.ka accurate if you dont paint it. but then i realized the great contrast between the orange psycho frame and the blue armor. blue and orange are complementary colors afterall, which creates one of the strongest contrasts you can get and it works really well to make the design of the suit pop more^^

when i look closely at the ova ver, it look more resemblance of the lion more than the novel ver due to the yellow collar & the colored crest in unicorn mode

im fine with the ova design , the armed armoured is unique compared to other conventional beam rifle/bazooka

ive never looked at it that way. you are right, it does look more like a lion in the OVA.

Is MG Gafran cancelled? I haven't seen its boxart yet, heck, even a prototype alone.

Edit: At last, I finally have Deep Striker!!

im curious about that as well... but was it even officially announced at some point?

and im really jeallous about your deep striker :T

GN0010 Nosferatu 2012-04-29 05:00

I've never heard anything on a MG Gafran.

casval cehack 2012-04-29 05:13

It was promised for a May 2012 release wayback in 2011.

Lots of Age-3 gunpla related details revealed on the Age-3 debut:
Spoiler for ep 29:


@maknaedik - Any assembled photos?

duotiga 2012-04-29 05:49

most probably they delay the release of MG Gafran for the confirmed lsit of kits 1st

None yet so far. I just got this afternoon. I'm prioritizing RC Nightingale whose WIP was already posted here: http://redblondemean.wordpress.com/reviews/non-bandai/

But honestly, I really want to start on it first. RC Nightingale got me frustrated because of its problems.

If they're planning to release MG Age-2 N and DB, then I'm cool, HAHA!

They already announced the AGE-2 Normal afaik, which makes it more likely for the Double Bullet to follow suit.

If they release both Age-2 Normal and DB, i think i'm going to snag up the normal one just so i can slap the regular gun on the DB to un-fugly it in Strider mode

Appel 2012-04-30 03:41

http://gundamguy.blogspot.de/2012/04...2-release.html
may release schedule for AGE AGE AGs, HGs and SDs and unicorn HGs and MGs.
its a shame that the marasai will be released on the 24th. but all the other stuff gets released on the 10th and im still in japan by then^^ i hope i can grab a Danazine then!

duotiga 2012-04-30 04:38

i know that. but that doesnt change the fact that its a shame that i miss its release^^

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-04-30 05:53

So, Iím finally done finishing my Heavyarms. A minor panel-lining, putting on some decals (many of them in difficult places), and paint the missiles. Hereís the final product:

Right now, Iím still working on my MG Wing Ka since Iím starting to collect MG Wing EW.

HasuMasu 2012-04-30 06:17

^ Not a fan of Wing but that's a damn fine model, really cool.

Does this confirm that Marasai's head can house a LED unit?

HasuMasu 2012-04-30 08:56

^ I'd think it does, yes.

The caption on the head images on the left indicates YES.

@Obelisk ze Tormentor - Can the MG Heavyarms hold the 1/100 Heavyarms Custom double barrel gatlings without any issues?

Had a second look and you're right. Thanks :) Now I wish the LED unit is included, though I personally think that it won't have one :|

There’s no weight issues at all since the double-gatling is lighter than MG gatling gun. Still, given how the MG hands are designed, you actually have to take off the four fingers in order to hold it. There’s no way to put the fingers back. I guess the actual MG Heavyarms Kai will fix the problem later on. Here’s the pics:

OR, you can have the 1/100 H-arms hands to replace the MG hands and the MG arms can still handle the weight.

duotiga 2012-04-30 10:07

hhhmm...my heavyarms not yet done....but im going for my 2nd mg banshee =x

I see, thanks. This is probably the quickest way to a Heavyarms Kai for now.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-04-30 10:44

Oh yeah. I’m done with my Wing KA too. :D
Spoiler for my 2nd Wing MG:
I prefer Wing KA since I like its brown inner-frame than the usual grey inner-frame of Wing EW (you might not see it in the pictures). It’s also cheaper and has nicer decals ^_^.

duotiga 2012-04-30 10:53

@ Obelisk ze Tormentor : nice Wings kits there. im only done Deathscythe ew, Shenglong EW & Sandrock EW, left the 2 big gunners before my set is complete

Thanx guys. I also can't wait to work on the other three Wing MGs. Still, I'll rest now after working on these two. There's work and all. My next project will probably be my still-unassembled MG Exia Trans-am. ;)

Appel 2012-04-30 11:35

those are some great models, obelisk!^^

so apparently the MG marasai has an LED to lightup the eye. thats pretty neat but i wonder whether the LED is actually included :P

Thanx. Still, despite how good Heavyarms KA is, I still want Heavyarms TV to be MGed :p. Even though itís near impossible, I want it so bad like I want MG Justice :heh:.

they have been pretty quite about new wing MG releases lately... i really hope they didnt stop making new ones halfway through! DX i only have two of the upgraded suits so far (wing zero and deathscythe hell) but i want the altron, heavyarms kai and sandrock kai as well!
but the chances for the TV versions of these models are rather slim indeed. i can see them making a wing zero TV version (which i would buy in a heartbeat, i highly prefer its design over the ver.ka!) but beyond that i dont think we will see any TV wing MGs.
