.........I think you need to really watch the video again, this time without alcohol or whatever else you take

This video is the epitome of sarcasm/parody as far as gunpla reviews go

Hey, that's quite a nice beam saber pose. The furthest I attempted was an angled fist but yours is something I feel like trying, especially with the RG Freedom and 2 beam sabers.

But the male peg I was referring to was this part:

I think it's due to the Tamiya Panel Line Accent that I used and the fact that I don't gloss coat the parts for panel-lining.

RRobbert184 did a justifying review of the Master Grade 1/100 G-Savior, a limited edition kit, with only 1,000 units produced, just for the movie screening.



But I hope Bandai would release some of the gems from the Sentinel/AoZ series.

What's so great about this that my seed destiny MG's need to take a step back?????

I'll take X, Seed, destiny or age over this any day

Okay as hilarious as the reactions are, I guess I should clear up some things.

Suiton wanted to garner more support for Wing/SEED/AGE by covertly asking about Bandai's 2014 plan, to which StrikeFreedomV2 replied "G-Savior". And of course, G-Savior in its entire entity, was worse than Mermaid Gundam. But of course, I couldn't resist bringing up the hilarious review on the HG G-Savior, which I'm sure many here would known.

On to the topic, while I'm quite looking forward to the RG Strike Freedom (and hopefully Infinite Justice, just because Justice was way more fun to build than Freedom), it is the 2014's Unicorn EP7 releases that gets me excited.

Hopefully Bandai continues on its trend to release MSV, like the Delta Gundam and Delta Kai. Despite my UC-biasness, I'm not an instant lover of the new Thunderbolt kits for some reason.

I think it's because the Thunderbolt designs look... lazy. As though someone just slapped whatever large weapons and equipment they could find lying around into a mobile suit without rhyme or reason. Even the recent Strike Rouge Ootori looks better and more coherent.

There's a mall here in Metro Manila that's currently hosting a GunPla exhibit. This piece caught everyone's attention.


I'm planning to visit the said mall tomorrow night to see if it's the real deal or just a really well made model.

suiton629 2013-10-07 10:11

It looks like a well made model? I thought the upcoming MG Sazabi Ver. Ka had that multi color thing going with pink parts?

Illsteir 2013-10-07 10:59

I guess it's confirmed:

The beam rifles still look a little bit big? Is this the final designs?

I won't be using the BR's anyway, so I'm alright with how they look. The kit itself looks nice and I'm now building the RG Destiny to go with it

I hope you also got the wing effect parts for the Destiny RG.
I made an order over at GG Infinite for the RG Destiny + Wings and the RG Strike Freedom + Wings and told them to ship it when they get everything. So I'm doing my GunPla buying now as you can probably guess and waiting til 2014 to build the remaining kits.

It's pretty ridiculous, but over the past hm..3 or so weeks..I've amassed a library of RGs and pre-paid/pre-ordered the RG Strike Freedom + Wings. So including all of that, my recent line of kits that I ordered (as in like the past month give or take)..

Spoiler:


I think that's quite sufficient for me in terms of GunPla through 2013. :eyespin: :D

Let's see if 2014 brings any of these as regular/online exclusive MG releases:

I have no need for overprized effect parts. The MGs I own have them, thats enough for me

To each their own. :)
You also get an exclusive Action Base 2 if you didn't know included with the package.

Overprized? You mean overpriced right? Heh.

Speaking of the MGs, if we do end up with a RM Ver. of the MG Strike Freedom and MG Destiny, then I get the feeling that Bandai is going to make the effect parts for those online exclusive and probably have like a unique display base like the RGs.

Bandai.. They really need to do something about going online exclusive with so much these days. I like that we're getting the add on sets and the kits, but really; quite annoying to some who have to pay the extra money for them.

Grammar nazi spotted.

Action base is action base, exclusive or not. The base and the effect parts are more expensive then the regular kit. Include shipping and you will pay the same amount of money you would pay for the MGs EBM and FBM modes, probably even more

I don't get my moneys worth back that way with those effect parts and stuff. I also believe that those wing parts will sooner or later will cause problems for the kit and parts will become loose. The torso joint will definitely cause issues with that much weight on its back

Being a fan doesn't mean you have to waste money.
Exclusive effect parts is one place where bootleggers can slap bandai in the face for their money grabbing tactics.
I dont care much about recolours or slight variations on kits as any good modeller can recreate it with paint and pla-plate.

I THINK its a brand new design? I've never heard of Sazabi with any handheld ranged weapon aside from the Shotrifle.

I kinda like the look of it though :heh:

suiton629 2013-10-07 18:07

Whatever happened to these 2? We haven't heard anything (unless I'm mistaken) since these photos were shown online.


Knight-of-Gold 2013-10-07 20:43

The "new" rifle is called the long rifle.
B-club made it before as part of an upgrade pack for the original MG Sazabi.

Then it's no surprise. Unless I'm mistaken, things that were B-Club exclusive items have gotten GunPla releases before. I guess for fans of the Sazabi, the upcoming Sazabi Ver. Ka is a no brainer purchase, and it'd look really nice next to the Sinanju Ver. Ka, Nu Gundam Ver. Ka, and Sinanju Stein Ver. Ka

And why I don't plan on getting it is because:

a. not a UC fan (everyone knows that)
b. price. if it's not an online exclusive then regardless of how big, i wouldn't pay that much for 1 MG, and everyone here knows that i have a tendency to go spending crazy on GunPla

Ah ok, I wonder if the kit will have a way to have both guns on its body (1 hand, 1 stored elsewhere, back skirt perhaps?)

Akyra 2013-10-08 09:04

G-Saviour...a good idea in concept but poor in execution.

This is one of the few movies I've failed to finish AND considered a waste of time/electricity/bandwidth to watch. (FYI, the other being DB Evolution).

That aside, I wouldn't mind getting a model of the G-Saviour.

Not starting anybody or any arguments...just saying.

Sazabi is definitely on my to get list...but just a matter of which one really...looks menancing

:frustrated::frustrated::frustrated:

I hope not. I mean if they released those 2, then at a low cost they can do:

Age-FX Full Burst --> online exclusive
Age-3 Orbital
Age-3 Fortress

I'm more excited at the possibility of them doing an online exclusive add on to the online exclusive Age 1 Normal Unit 2 for the Assault Jacket. And still hoping for the Age-1 Full Gransa and Age-1 Flat w/ Zefuld Launcher.

I mean they have every other main lead.

Take the popularity of Kio and his suits into account. Its highly unlikely that any of them will get MGs any time soon. Look at the AGE-3 and then look at the AGE-1 and AGE-2. The AGE-3 is bigger then the other two and needs more plastic. Plus because of its transformation it needs even more plastic. Those factors indicate, for me that is, that the price would probably be around the 5000-5500 yen-mark. I don't think that there are enough people who would be buying the guy so Bamdai wouldn't get their mone back let alone make enough profit.

The AGE-FX could come out, but I don't think it will be in the near future.

Here's what I was thinking.

Bandai could just do the MG Age-3 Normal, and then release another 'kit' that gives the parts for the Orbital and Fortress. That way, if you really want all 3, then you would have to get the add-on pack and 3x of the Age-3 Normal MG. :eyespin:

Then they could release the MG Age-FX and then do a Full Burst variant as an online exclusive.

That leaves us with the Age-1 which we need the Flat w/ Zefuld and Full Gransa, and the possibility of making the Assault Jacket an exclusive add on to the exclusive Age-1 Normal Unit 2..double troll..lol

And of course the Age-1 Swordia. If we get that, then I'm like 99% sure it'd be online exclusive.

I know. But with so many kits on my wishlist, I'm pretty sure that at least a handful will get done.

StrikeFreedomV2 2013-10-08 10:51

Now that Build Fighters is airing, some AGE-kits could get some screentime. Maybe that could redeem the AGE-3 in some peoples eyes and would them make to want a MG of it.

That logic is silly. That's saying because the Exia was shown on screen that it would motivate Bandai to do a MG Exia R2. :eyespin:

True. But the thing is, I don't think AGE is being represented in Build Fighters. I think every other series has. I haven't seen anything AGE related in the OP, ED, commercials, trailers, previews, or even Episode 01. But of course we've only seen 1 episode, but still...

Hell, even the low-rating Gundam X is being supported in Build Fighters. I think everything up to Gundam 00 will be represented in Build Fighter and with GunPla Beginner G and AGE, those two might not be represented in Build Fighter.

StrikeFreedomV2 2013-10-08 11:05

Maybe, maybe not. Time will tell. I hope for some more AGE-2 action :p

Why not. I hope we will see more modern High Grades of Kira's suits and some other classic designs. MK II and Gundam Alex come to mind
