So finally got to work on my Delta Plus(have no idea where my spare time went as I am infact watching alot less anime and playing alot less games atm:confused:)


Sorry for the poor quality but only got a crappy old camera to use.

He's quite limbless atm but thats just how I go about building em:p
First I build the hips/waist then the torso then it goes onto the stand, after it's head/legs/arms and lastly extras.
I'm quite meticulous and anal about it all but more than I do take my sweet ass time making these things(even longer if it's a model that requires glue) gotta enjoy the build as much as I can.

So far very nice build, fair few fiddly bits here and there and like any model some parts look and even feel very flmisy but once put together become pretty solid.
Only problem I had was I bent the face cheek plate abit, wasn't paying attention then but not a problem.

BTW I love the beam sabers for this thing, that clear blue is a sweet colour.

Question.

I remember someone showed me here an official kit or a custom of the Exia R2 Master Grade kit. Can someone link me to that?

o_O

Holy hell that's awesome. Best piece of gunpla I've seen in a long time. For clarity's sake (as if it isn't obvious which of your links is better): I'm talking about that custom Astray.

It's a custom made one. There's no official or prototype of it from Bandai.

Are you going to paint this?

No plans to paint atm, don't have the time.

And even then I'll need to think of what paint scheme I want, I prefer to go with a custom job instead of just painting in original but then I do like the Delta's original simple scheme.

MG Titus official Boxart c/o Gundamkits

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...20547879_n.jpg

Though I want big boxes like Epyon's and 00 Raiser's, it really doesn't need it here. Gosh, I love the boxart, though I think they could've made it better.

As much as I hate to admit it, the MG line of Age kits are really epic! I think they're at least on par with my love of the MG 00 series. :eyespin: :eyespin: :eyespin:

That's good to hear. What I'm really impressed is the engineering it has :)

Yea. It looks like they kind of cheaped on things here and there, but the overall effect is an easier MG kit to build I think based on what I've seen.

Dalong actually posted stuff on it...

Though the word cheap has been used, it isn't really a negative thing for me, minus the sliding armor panel. Now, MGs are easier to build and easier to paint, for Age line that is.

What I'm looking forward, for the Age MG line, are the Age-3 MGs. How will it improve over the last combiner MG like Impulse?

HasuMasu 2012-03-01 05:07

Nice box-art for the Titus, and that Astray custom is delicious. :naughty:

I see. There's a great custom Delta Plus on GG recently ->http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2012/0...e-painted.html

The MG Titus box art could have been better IMO, especially after seeing the "full beam mode" Titus in the last battle of Flit's chapter.

HasuMasu 2012-03-01 05:54

He used Decade's color-scheme? Instawin.

MG Banshee art


RG Mk. II promo

Spoiler for TITANS specific details and ejection pod (red):

duotiga 2012-03-01 07:06

standard pose but nice Banshee boxart

Znozzy 2012-03-01 14:03

RG titans mk2 is missing the E-cap on its rifle, lol

nice to see that they added the shield launcher on the RG.

See the logo of the latest pic? CONFIRMED! The first Marasai MG will come from Zeta :))

Also, you can lit it up. HELL YEAH!

Sir Dearka 2012-03-02 08:54

What seems more interesting to me... Maybe it is promotion time. The next MG is Buster for sure :D

Which gundam model is better to build an atlas?

suiton629 2012-03-02 14:07



Whoa? Is this a MG Wing Zero (TV)???

Appel 2012-03-02 14:14

although i am expecting a MG wing zero TV version.

Damn it...lol

I hope we get a MG Wing Zero Custom ver. 2.0 later after the Wing Zero (TV) comes out in MG.

That I would get...all 3 of them. =)

Til then...

MG 00 > MG Age > MG Wing

wing zero still doesnt need a version 2.0. it is good enough as it is!
in fact the frame is so good they decided to re-release the wing gundam ver.ka with almost the exact same frame last year!
sure, the hands kinda suck but there are ways to work around that issue.

duotiga 2012-03-02 20:35

Wing kit doesn't need a ver 2 treatment . The frame itself is good enough

suiton629 2012-03-03 08:24

So why didn't the MG Sandrock EW come with...

Then a version 1.5...

Basically what I'm thinking is this..

We got the MG Wing (TV), right? It got a new frame, mold, etc. I'm sure a lot of it will repeat with the eventual MG Wing Zero (TV). So why wouldn't they use it 1 more time for a "MG Wing Zero OVA Ver"...? LOL

maknaedik 2012-03-03 09:04

There are two things that I think MG WZC needs. Pegs for the hands and the newest hip joint for MGs. That's about it. So I guess a 1.5 could work. But if they're gonna do it, I hope they do that with Strike as well.

Like I said, I hope they reuse the MG Wing (TV) for the MG Wing Zero (TV) and MG Wing Zero (OVA Ver).

that doesnt make it a 2.0 or 1.5 though^^ thats just a re-release with a different frame. and since pretty much everyone is happy with the current versions of the wing zero EW i highly doubt that they would do that.

duotiga 2012-03-03 09:51

i wld say MG Nu/Hi Nu wld need a ver 2 treatment more than Wing . the proportion for the MG is so wrong compared to the HGUC counterpart....

the Hi-Nu might not need one, thats a pretty great model as it is! its also one of the most popular MGs ever^^ the fans are happy with it and it sells well so i suppose bandai doesnt see the need to make a new one.
as for the Nu gundam... i dont own that one so i dont really know that much about it. but it does seem like a good candidate for a 2.0 version! personally id prefer to see a PG release of it though!
the only obvious candidates for a version 2.0 update that i can see are the GP series gundams from stardust memory! their MG versions are terrible and they deserve better :P
id also love to see MGs from gundam evolve. and with todays know-how they would almost count as 2.0 updates in my opinion^^

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-03-03 10:49

Id say the strong candidates for ver. 2.0 treatment would be MG Hyaku Shiki & MG Nu Gundam coz both of them are popular enough to warrant it. MG Hyaku Shiki for its limited articulation and its old mold and MG Nu Gundam to fix its terrible proportion (unlike the HG, the MGs head is too big and the torso is too short) and its limited articulation.

suiton629 2012-03-03 11:26

I just feel like with the MG Wing (TV), and they fact that they didn't call it Wing on the frame and that XXXG or whatever, kind of makes me feel like a MG Wing Zero (TV) will be done, and then from there they could reuse it again with Wing Zero Custom MG... like a 1.5 with minor changes and reuse the frame from the MG Wing (TV)

mainly the strike and the nu gundam. the high amount of detail they have while still staying close to the original designs make them pretty ideal for new versions^^
i dont like the evolve version of the rx-78-2 though...
