That color choice actually matched the one I saw from that magazine scan of the Delta Plus.

I'm disappointed they didn't include more weapons. A unique mobile suit should have a unique weapon too. There was that huge rifle it had with the scope shown in that magazine page. Maybe they'll include it as a bonus in a hobby japan release.

you can always just paint it ;D

but yeah, the low amount of accesories is pretty lame, especially since they give you the same standard beam rifle that the rezel is using :P but its using it in the OVA, too so i guess its ok.
you mean this rifle right?

that would have been pretty cool^^ that thing looks awesome! but maybe they werent giving us that huge thing because the model has so many issues.... i didnt try it myself but according to syd over at gaijin-gunpla it cant even hold the rezels rifle at full extension without falling over XP

Lime soda 2011-08-12 14:57

Yeah that's the rifle. I've seen the exact picture of the Delta Plus in different images but its colors always seem to be different. But the green/grey and a very dark blue was what I wanted for the MG. I can't paint so I have to just stick with what's available out of the box. I don't buy many models nowadays and I don't have the patience for training/and working with hand painting.

There's always the Delta Gundam that might come out in the future. Maybe they'll fix the problems or even better, if some Delta Plus ver . Ka might come out? Probably impossible and it's too bad this didn't get his attention like the Unicorn and Sinanju did.

you dont have to do it by hand, just get some spraypaint^^ its really easy, i thought i couldnt do it, too. and if you mess it up just sand it and try again!^^

i dont really have high hopes for a delta gundam or a different version of the delta plus though... bandai wanted to see how the delta gundam and the hyaku shiki 2.0 (after its release) would do. since the delta plus will probably do poorly now that its common knowledge that it sucks i really dont see a delta gundam happening for now.

oh and by the way, it does have its advantages that the delta plus comes with the rezels rifle!

i dunno, maybe ill keep it like that and just give my rezel a beam saber ;P

QFT. X is still one of my favourites, and I'm quite sad it didn't get a full run or English release.

Crazy to see Bandai already ready for Gundam AGE through High Grade kits. Seems like the AGE series will be the next for milking the hell out of HG likes like how Bandai is (still) milking the HG kits from the 00 series.

None the less, these 2 guys look like GM's from the original Gundam series.

you are right, it does look like that robot^^
but personally i think the genoace looks extremely lame... both the regular one and the white version. its just so very bland! i mean, even the GM manages to look interesting but this think is just all around boring in my opinion :P

suiton629 2011-08-13 15:00

Oh wow...haha...I never thought of that!

LOL

Now if Bandai can make an android for household purposes...that would be epic.

Imagine like cutting food with a beam saber...

lol. if that happen, i don't think you need to cook your food anymore.

by the way, have you guys seen this?

suiton629 2011-08-13 19:28

Would be funny as hell to see like a bunch of real life SD kits with beam sabers cooking food...like grill the meat with beam sabers and beam rifles...hahahah

At least should take approximately two or three years to make this as a Master Grade kit.

[rant]something thats pissing me off about bandai is how huge and exposed the nubs on many of the newer master grades are... they managed to make small gates and undergates on older kits like the MG hyaku shiki, why cant they do it today anymore? :T it really sucks that without excessive sanding and painting you cant get good results with many pieces... like the MG delta plus, i didnt pay 4000 yen to have model that can barely stand AND has huge nubs all over it :P[/rant]

yes, i did notice that on my Epyon as well, and the worst part, it seem those nubs are getting much bigger too. but it's not like they don't do that anymore, they still do it for part that are special coated.

you do know some company actually send out stuff for other company to make then ship it back for packaging?

An MG can barely stand? :confused: I thought that only applied to HG 1/100. Is that a common issue of nowadays' MG? :confused:

actually yes :P there are many MG models that cant stand.
but mostly its not bandais fault but rather the fault of the design of the suit. hte strike freedom cant stand for example because its wings are so heavy. but the delta plus cant stand well because its feet are so week, so thats a design fault on bandais part!

I hope Bandai can fix those feet problem quickly. I also heard that Strike Freedom PG's wing part is a stinker too.

My MG Strike Freedom can stand just fine (without repairing/adding anything) though :). So, I don't really know the problem with other Strike Freedom MGs :confused:. Maybe the owners just didn't pose it in an appropriate manner ;).

the problem with the PG strike freedom is that in the frame the connector for the wings is WAY too weak and breaks when you move them often.
and about the delta plus, bandai has never been really good with transforming models, they are always flimsy at least one joint.

and about the strike freedom: its just EXTREMELY backheavy^^ it CAN stand upright but only in a pretty awkward position with its legs bent and leaning forward :P thats one of the kits you NEED an action base for because otherwise you cant do anything with it XD

edit: oh hey look at that!
http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2011/0...aiki_9026.html
after marked parts to give the fuunsaiki articulation^^ now thats a good idea! i simply didnt get why bandai wouldnt give that poor horse any joints...

Yup, the highlight of Strike Freedom is when you pose it flying, thus... agree with you ;).

So, are MG Zeta's joints flimsy too? Since I never own a Variable MS in MG, I didn't know about that :confused:.

That Fuun Saiki mods sure look good, but I think I'll never buy that. It's too cheesy for me. If I want a horse MS I'd better buy that black horse from SRT Original Generation 2.

MG zeta is a trainwreck as far as i know and MG zeta 2.0 is supposed to be rather flimsy. i dont own any of those though.
the other transforming suit that i have is the MG ReZEL. its a lot less flimsy than the delta plus but the ankles are very lose. it does stand better on its own though

skyboy928 2011-08-15 07:46

just saw this moment ago.
http://kotaku.com/5830825/a-giant-gu...-ass/gallery/1

it's kinda sad to see the giant gundam in pieces, but i'm pretty sure it will be standing once again soon

I guess when the time comes when I own a variable MS MG, I'll never transform it to Plane Mode, just in case.

How about MG Epyon & MG Wing? Those are also variable MSs. Are their joints rather flimsy too? I'm concerned coz I plan to buy them.

Which version of the Wing Gundam are you talking about, the Ver. Ka/EW or the TV Ver.? I Have the TV Ver. and I haven't found any flimsy joints on mine. Also, you can check rrobbert184's review on the MG Wing Gundam TV Ver. and MG Gundam Epyon in youtube or his new site: http://gundamreviews.net/. Though he doesn't have the Ver. Ka/ EW.
