I wouldn't want to bet against you, no. :heh: But would it be the tried-and-true RX-78-2, or would it be something like the RX-78-1 Prototype Gundam, which, I think, had never had a kit beside the FIX action figure(?), or the RX-78-3, which had its MG kit back in the mid 90's (with a rather limited edition PG kit since then)?

Bandai made 1/144 prototype Gundam years ago.
Heck~ they even had the gold plated promotional(?) kit... ^__^

The MG Strike Noir is released on the 16th. Mine is on its way right now. Can't wait for the kit... and, just because I am crazy, I am gonna paint it white...

While a white Noir screams "Huh??!?!!?!11111" you've got the talent to make it look cool :D

Why wait for a normal 1/100 when there's an MG?

In which, Dalong has his Strike Noir review up. Thing looks damb sweet panel lined :heh:

-Noir doesn't look too bad without it's pack...:heh:
-Dalong grouped the Strikey's together, which, surprisingly enough, with IWSP's darkish colors it actually looks well with the Noir Pack :heh:
-91 pts? It's not the RX-93 Hi-Nu :heh::heh:

I don't even think you need an MG Akatsuki at the moment.

As expected 1/100 kit does not have the versatility that an MG kit has. Still prefer MG over 1/100.

ha ha. Tak, it wouldnt be called NOIR anymore since NOIR = VERY BLACK. Do post a picture of it when you painted it white. :)

Just saw that, and have been waiting for Dalong's Inner Frame comparison. While the Noir does share parts with the Strike, it has ALOT of differences concerning the inner frame, and that even when based on the same frame, Noir is a bit taller than Strike :eyebrow:

And Dalong shows us that yes, the MG Aile Striker is compatible with the Strike Noir as expected.

DarkWarrior 2007-03-26 12:18

Oh wow, I wasn't expecting Dalong to give the Strike Noir a score that low.. especially since he gave the IWSP a 98.

And I really hope that the Noir is the last Strike based MG. I'm going to be pissed if Bandai gives us yet another Strike variant.

LoweGear 2007-03-26 13:18

Unfortunately... still, the Noir is an awesome kit, especially with all the markings.

For those who want to know, here's the rundown on Dalong's points on the Noir:

Some key points he mentions:

+ He likes the plastic color, and the color separation is excellent.

+ External detail is excellent.

+ Excellent wings. Bandai clearly paid a lot of attention to them.

+ Chow Yun Fat style.

= Specially-molded weapon hands are now included, SEED 1/100 style. While the grip strength isn't a problem anymore, the hands tend to break apart easily. Glue recommended.

= All the frames are actually new, tweaked version of MG Strike's mold, so it's not a total recycle job. But at the same time, while building the kit, he still felt like he was building yet another Strike, so it's just another variation kit. Nothing new.

- Torso's frame detail is lacking.

- It inherits all the mobility/poseability issues from MG Strike, meaning it's good (but not outstanding anymore) and it has the same weak ankles as MG Strike.

- The hip joints' range is also lacking.

- Due to these issues, you kinda need the stand to really make it look cool. So where is it, Bandai??

- The wing joints also show signs of loosening after a few movements.

- Not particularly loaded with weapons. That would have been forgiven IF IT HAD A STAND.

- # of parts / price ratio isn't great.

- Not that unique. It almost feels like a stop-gap measure on the way to MG #100.



The last two points lead me to believe that Dalong simply doesn't have any particular affection for Strike Noir as a mech and as a variation kit.

I mean, MG Hi-Nu has a much worse "# of parts / price ratio," yet he was willing to overlook it because 1. it was Hi-Nu and 2. it was a fresh new kit that tried many new things.

Why and whats wrong with Strike variants?

kct 2007-03-27 00:43

Well, some people feel that the Strike variants are getting in the way of other mobile suits that are waiting to be MG-fied in any way :3 .

Who cares, I am still waiting for time to get the IWSP (as I've been saying several times). The AoZ HGUCs will keep myself busy (on free time) at the moment :P .

aeriolewinters 2007-03-27 02:08

100 is a milestone Number, so I'm going to say that whatever they are going to MGfy is a UC MS.

More MG Zaku II pics, with comparisons to older MG Zakus:

Hi

Whats the differences between the 1/144 vs 1/100

i'm trying to figure it out, but they both look the same to me

it just that the 1/100 Gundam models cost most

Oh and I'm kinda new with Gundam Models Kits

and is www.gundamstoreandmore.com a good place to order Gundam Model Kits
