Yeah, they're crystal versions.

I saw a MG Strike Noir within the presented merchandise but wonder why weren't there any close ups of it

Check a few pages back; pics of it were already posted.

The close ups of the same Noir were on few pages back.

EDIT: Drats, Lowe posted...well, crystal versions are only good if you are going to paint it.

LoweGear 2007-02-15 04:40

Hmmm... a thought...

With the upcoming HGUC Gundam Blue Destiny... anyone else think a HGUC Gundam Ground Type, or even a Ez-8 is possible in the near future? Afterall, the Blue Destiny uses the Ground type as a base, and it would be a waste if they didn't capitalize on that opportunity.

I don't see what's so appealing about these crystal versions, clear versions or even these extra finish versions. I just don't get it. They look kinda ugly IMO and look more toy, less gunpla to me.
Does anyone feel any different? I wanna know if and why some people find them appealing.
Like the clear version MG Freedom that I saw at dalong. It looked shocking, IMO. Even the Wing Zero Custom special types, etc. - not feelin those.

kct 2007-02-15 05:58

They are just for the ones who can afford all versions of the same Gundam kit most of the time.

Unfortunately, most of them lacked the details to make them really nice in any way (like the lack of some internal parts in some kits like the MG Freedom Clear Version).

BTW, if you're using google checkout as the first time user, I think you'll get an additional 10 dollars off. So $10 + shipping for both!

I would of get them both, but I've too much unopen box (10+), I need to finish those before buy new ones.

DarkWarrior 2007-02-15 14:52

^None of those are available online.

Someone pointed this out in another forum, but the knee armor is backwards.. ahahha! :heh:

mangatron 2007-02-15 18:21

I told you that thing was hastily put together lol :heh: :heh:

I would really wait for official pics before I start screaming "MG Strike frame rehash!!" :heh: That's the only obstacle in my way of a purchase consideration :uhoh::heh:

I've seen people mix and matching the parts with the normal MG and creating that kind of half-outer-shell, half-internal-organs kind of look. Imagine using the clear parts for the left hand and left legs (plus the frames from the normal MG) and adding some kind of lighting + fake cables, etc. The effect is quite interesting, but I guess modding the parts a bit to make it work (since the boundraries betwen the clear and normal parts need to look natural) may take quite an effort.

EDIT: it may be easier to paint the normal pieces and paint parts of the clear pieces to create the natural boundrary rather than modding them, I guess

The extra finish ones, I have no idea where the appeal is. But the Extra finish HCM-pros sure look a tad better than their normal coutnerparts

I definitely agree here.. if they're reusing the old MG Strike frame, I'll pass. And it's very likely that this will indeed be the case, as Bandai as shown time and time again that they really, really like reusing old parts. Oh well, I'll probably be broke after buying Hi-Nu and CB Full Cloth anyways. :heh:

mangatron 2007-02-16 07:12

And.....saw a lineart from Hobby Japan Feb, which I may not have noticed before, I think it really confirms it. Both the official pics and the lineart show that the leg is indeed a MG Strike re-hash, which would explain the odd stiffness the picture showed when Strike Noir was showcasing it's pistol poses. Oh well, unless Bandai was just using old lineart:heh: and posing the figure dorkily on the official pics, then, yeah, maybe......

But then again, the price may all be just about the Noir Pack. $50+ for a Noir Pack? I am crazy, but.....sigh :heh:

Let me know when you get Xbone FC and tell me what you think about it, thx

DarkWarrior 2007-02-16 16:00

Dalong has started his Hi-Nu review already. Looking pretty good. :D

I don't mind, but it'll probably take me ages to receive it and start building it. I'm sure plenty of other people have built it by now..

I blame all the extra stuff Bandai is throwing in. Multiple fixed pose hands (6 total I believe?), 2 of Duel's beam rifles, Strike's beam rifle, and some other things I probably forgot.

Fome 2007-02-16 17:30

Wow, I am so relieved. The mounting where the fuel tank is joined to the backpack is molded in gold! I'm glad it's not the ugly blue that was in the old photos.

Already checked dalong's Xbone FC, but I can't read it. I wanted to hear someone's actual opinion on it.
