The Age-2 Normal looks good! Don't see anywhere other than a small part on the head that doesn't come in the correct colors.

The shoulder holes still look kinda silly in flight mode, and it looks to have too much blue in that mode, otherwise its alright! :)

Found a review of the HG AGE-2 Normal. After 10(?) HG Age kits released so far, I'm still not impressed to buy one.:heh:

Appel 2012-01-19 10:31

big gunpla sale at HLJ! some really good stuff in the mix, like the MG delta plus is 30% off now^^

me neither. i found the HG AGE-1 pretty cheap in a german online store but i still wont buy any AGE kits until most of them are released.
this is also the reason why i dont own a HG jesta yet. i have the feeling that we will get a MG of it som im willing to wait for now^^

kakakka 2012-01-19 10:59

I guess part of the reason is that I am also occupied with RGs (I just finished putting stickers to Freedom the other day, I might not built anything for weeks because my attention will be on it for a while :heh:). So no HGs for now.

id be happy about pretty much all MG releases from unicorn this year^^ i cant think of a suit from it that wouldnt please me in MG form :P
but the jesta would just go so very well with the ReZEL and delta plus!

Same reason why I ain't got a Jesta either, waiting on the MG;)

About AGE stuff the HG stuff still hasn't really impressed me much expect for the G-EXE which I'm hoping for MG anyway so also not getting any AGE stuff till most of it is released.......and more of it ends up on sales later on:p

Gotta save as many pennies as I can.

Delta Plus is on sale atm and I'm damn tempted to get it!

it does seem rather obvious that we will get it, doesnt it? i mean, we even got BOTH versions of the ReZEL relatively early on! unicorn kits are also selling like crazy, id would surprise me if they didnt release more MGs.

the HGs do seem pretty impressive to be honest. i simply dont like the designs of most of them^^ plus im waiting for what they might release in the future, especially the MG and megasize kits.

fur the current price the delta plus is totally worth it in my opinion!

Looking at the MG Heavyarms' runners, looks like we have the solution to a debate we had in this thread a while back:

Yup, all the missile groups are individually molded separate from the rest of their parts assembly to eliminate the need for masking, and even the chest Gatling in the same manner.

I know how you sort of feel.
I like High Grade kits in general since they are relatively cheap and decent, but I just can't urge myself to get anything aside from MG kits (unless the kit is only available in No Grade, 1/100 Scale).

For the AGE series GunPla kits, I think it's best to wait for the MG kits. From the pix I have seen, they look very promising. :)

That is more like it, Bandai is certainly making the MG brand worth it's name in this kit.

But I've noticed that there's no gating for the chest gatling. You will have no doubt noticed that the H-Arms Kai EW have twice the number of chest gatling than the normal H-Arms EW. If the H-Arms Kai EW is under development, then they will need to redo this specific entire tree. And if so, is Bandai indicating there's more changes for the H-Arms Kai from the original draft ?

And I thought I was the only one who chose not to buy the HGUC Jesta just to wait for Bandai to announce an MG Jesta. I might even buy 3 of them to make the squad in the OVA.:heh:

No matter what scale or grade the Age series is in, I still can't find an awesome MS design from the series that will make me want to buy it.


Is it me or are the current MGs' hands are using the part-swapping gimmick for the fingers as the new standard for MG hands?

And does anybody here have that 1/144 System Weapon that has the beam gatling? If so, can you mount the beam gatling to the Unicorn's forearm?

suiton629 2012-01-19 20:04

I think the new style of MG hands is that finger swapping thing.

MG Jegan before MG Jesta. The Jegan is long overdued for an MG and the Jesta is just a modified soup up Jegan. Likewise, MG Geara Doga before Geara Zulu.MG for CCA line is in need of completion after all these years.

The Heavyarms only F plate has an optional part at the bottom. Bandai has already considered the next Heavyarms version.

Oh yes :D

Hoping to also get a First Grade Buster and MSiA Buster somehow so my collection is absolutelly complete ;)

HasuMasu 2012-01-20 09:54

That thing looks glorious, AGE-3 would benefit the most from an MG and I can't wait for it.

maybe. but the jesta squad was originally designed to fight along the unicorn to clear its path so that it can effectively take on newtype units.
so considering how important they are i suppose that they do have a high chance to be released soon as well.
and besides, the jegan could be released as a general universal century MG at any given time. the jesta is a suit that appears specifically in gundam unicorn.

=P
I hope they get it out fast. I may or may not get into the MG AGE series. And if I do, you know I'll go hardcore like my favorite series that I'm waiting for that 1 kit to come out...you know which one. :p:p:p

You might also want to wait for an inevitable MG Buster Gundam sometime this year, if the MG SEED focus is any indication (as I recall once the Wing MG line concludes, they're supposed to be making the MG SEED line next, with the already confirmed MG Duel starting up).

Inevitable is assuming a lot.

For one, Bandai said they would be limiting the number of MG kits they release in a year. The Unicorn and AGE are the new series so they'll be pumping out a lot of kits from those 2 series.

Exia R2...Maybe it'd be a surprise for this year.

We also have the MG Wing EW kits that need to get releaes like the Nataku, Heavyarms Kai (i.e. Custom), and Sandrock Kai (i.e. Custom). Maybe we'll see the MG Wing Zero (TV) too and if they want to go all out do a ver. 2.0 of the MG Wing Zero Custom. =)

Seed...yea they're doing that remaster HD thing, but I think they'd put more priority to the Unicorn & AGE, then the Wing & 00...followed by Seed.

They did that Buster Assault Shroud in MG but that doesn't mean we're gonna see the others done in MG so soon.

Inevitable...maybe...but that doesn't necessarily mean it'll come this year or next.

to be honest, those big blocky pieces in the shoulders and the frame in general and how the limbs are put together... this actually reminds me more of a HG than a MG! :I it appears that the new principle of using less plastic and less pieces hasnt been applied to the duel alone.
im pretty curious how good (or bad?) these models will be now!

I sure hope they decide to make it. They are releasing the Robot Damashii, after all! If the sales of these are good, then I guess that'd be a green light for the release of MG Buster.

hmm, there is both ups and downs when it comes to that, are the MG's heading towards 1/100 NG's in quality?

or

Are the MG's going to maintain the same quality as they previously have, with less pieces? the picture of the shoulder innerframe would be a step up, theres no point in having that piece be split in two that you have to snap together, if Bandai is going to be more smart about the parts (like the shoulder innerframe) then i see nothing bad with less parts.

As someone mentioned earlier, maybe we will start to get something like RG plates in MG form soon, which could be both good and bad at the same time.

Less pieces doesn't necessarily mean less plastic. Those new monolitic PS/ABS parts are not a problem as long as Bandai retains the MG details and gimmicks, given that recent HGs often approach MG-like articulation. Plus, Ebikawa's mechanical design is a factor here; the Age-1's armor-to-frame connection style and the clear separation of colors makes this more than possible on this model.

The only detriment I can think so far (until I build this kit) is when painting. Before, one could have five or more shoulder pieces that can be painted with multiple colors easily. Now, prepare to mask all the time.

it could have positive and negative implications^^ i am simply being cautiously curious. we havent gotten any models with that new technology yet so at this point this is just speculation, anyway.
the guys at bandai know that they are known for great model quality and i dont think they will throw that reputation out the window just because they want to safe 10 grams of plastic on each model kit XD

I'll be happy when they choose to adjust the pricings in accordance to the amount of materials used.

Wow. MG AGE-1 is beautiful

suiton629 2012-01-20 22:27

I think this new engineering style is basically tailored to make it easier by making it more adaptable to the leg & arm changes for Sparrow and Titus, which also turned out to be more cost effective & efficient.
