Doesn't that pose the same question as why they produce 1/144 No-Grades with 1/144 HGs, if you think that they're wasting resources with a Strike and a Strike Rouge, they're wasting resources with all the no-grades. People have different tastes and preferences. Not everyone paints their models. Besides, what if someone wants a Strike Rouge over a Strike? I believe...for example, Char's Zaku looks like just a red Zaku...so Bandai's been doing that for a loooong time.

Anyways guys, does a 1/100 ZGMF-X88S Gaia and a 1/100 ZGMF-X31S Abyss exist?

Nesty 2005-12-23 15:46

no those 2 1/100 don't exist, and i'd really like to see the gaia become a 1/100 but i doubt that would happen -_-;

For all the bling-blings, too bad this will not be in time for Xmas.

Must have that to stand beside my 1/144 Hyaku Shiki!!!!

Oh and does the 1/100 Duel build? Does it come out nice? Been thinking about getting a duel for a while.

Nesty 2005-12-23 21:34

LMAO 1/144 hyaku shiki with the Akatsuki. i'm certian that this 1/144 hg will do well. i'm CERTAIN that almost everyone who likes the hyaku shiki will want it because of the obvious blingbling mecha back to back.

god i'd love to see this in a MG form T_T

X0Anime0X 2005-12-23 21:55

Wow that Akatsuki acually looks really good.

And Syn13, here's some pics of a built Duel. http://211.233.38.221/dalong/seed/s6/s6_p.htm

Looks good, are it the original plastic colour with the lining done with a marker?

srb 2005-12-24 03:45

I think that Akatsuki is in a darker more Legend-esqué paintjob.

Yeah...why is it black. Don't tell me it IS black and we have to paint it gold...?

It's only the pre-release color of the plastic, before it is colored in. Like how you'll see white-colored plastic in models displayed in model magazines before their actual release.

Akyra 2005-12-24 08:13

Now if only they'll release that in 1/100. :D

Fafnir 2005-12-24 09:54

Bandai may be releasing the blackatsuki so they can get more money off the models.

They could say it was a special edition, and BAM! Instant cash.

Also, I doubt it would be a pre release, considering that they'd have to waste time/money painting it.

So, Gunota just posted this news in regards to a new MG RX-78...except Japan isn't gretting it, AND it's not really new...

10th Anniversary MG kit
To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of MG kits, Bandai will be releasing "MG RX-78-2 Gundam MG 10th anniversary model". The kit will be based on the very first MG kit, the MG RX-78-2 ver1.0 with different colors. Decals are designed by Katsumi Kawaguchi (aka Kawaguchi meijin). The kit will be available in Asian countries except for Japan this December.
I'm a bit surprised that Japan won't be getting this. I wonder if something bigger may be planned for later next year?

ya that is weird, why isn't japan getting it o_O haha that makes no sense!

srb 2005-12-24 12:07

Dalong has a section up for it now, it seems like it comes with some nifty MG catalogue.

Optimaximal 2005-12-24 13:14

For people who actually have no clue, that prototype Akatsuki model is black because the chrome plating used requires a black backing to get a deep metallic finish... Applying it on lighter colours dulls the sheen...

Yep, thats simply markered...

If anything, that link just goes further to remind me just how awful the Assault Shroud pack is... The vanilla Duel is so much nicer...

Awful? you mean the colour and detail or overall quality of the Assault Shroud?
Looks pretty good IMO but thats only what I see from the picture...Since there's no other choice I really want because I don't think there's a 1/100 B;itz...or is there?
