Fanboyism blinds a person when it comes to looks.

ALL HAIL RIE KUGIMIYA.

duotiga 2008-03-08 03:04

i am just looking forward to 1/100 Astrea....

MakubeX2 2008-03-08 05:10

After Ep 22, who wants a recoloured Throne Zwei Ali Custom ?

LightningZERO 2008-03-08 05:10

Isn't it still the same? Ali customizes it?

But I really want a full red Exia. Too bad we're not getting it in the GN-Arms set

It's explained that the GN-ARMS act as a giant TD Blanket for the Trans-Am Exia to protect the pilot.

Of course, with the price of anything oil related (paint included) rising, it's another part of cost saving measure for Bandai.

Please. Looking at how he is, he will spend an episode repainting the Zwei in his colours. Too good a chance to miss for Bandai to re-release another version of the Zwei.

Rey Za Burrel 2008-03-08 05:12

Exia Rouge in my opinion , its color reminds me of Strike Rouge b-(

LightningZERO 2008-03-08 05:13

So maybe we will get a real (means full red) Trans-Am Exia release in the future?

duotiga 2008-03-08 05:19

might be for Trans-am "rouge" exia & a recoloured Zwei, Astrea (F)

dodgethis_sg 2008-03-08 05:28

So Exia's three times faster now?

Or should it be black with LEDs to better suit it's new mode?

Except it looks exactly the same in the preview. And that's the last we'll ever see of the Zwei. :P

Eleutheria 2008-03-08 10:03

No. They will release a Ali-colors Zwei that is exactly the same except for a golden face scar.

LightningZERO 2008-03-08 10:20

It will have a missing left skirt armor

Anyway I will get Throne Zwei now just to have a Exia VS Throne scene :D

He seems to have gotten a replacement for that. Same with the right beam saber he lost. I guess there's some magic GN armory somewhere that everyone is using now. :D

RedWing 2008-03-08 13:58

Hopefully this will increase the chance for a MG or 1/100 Zwei.

MeesesGlokmah 2008-03-08 18:34

Does anyone know if $18 is too much for a 1/144 Kyrios?

That's not a bad price. Of course, you can find a cheaper price than that; GSaM, for example, has it for $16.99, but it depends on the shipping whether you can save a little on the prices.

I dunno, I got one for $10.

then again I didn't have to worry about shipping costs...um, yeah, $15 to $20-ish is probably reasonable.

Wow, that's cheap. Where did you get yours? Since shipping was unnecessary like you said, I'm guessing you got it from a store? I got my first one from HLJ, and it was about $15. My second one, which I got from GSaM was about $17.

MakubeX2 2008-03-08 21:44

To be precise, are you guys talking about the HG 1/144 Kyrios or the FG 1/144 Kyrios ?

Can't imagine the HG 1/144 going for anything below US$15.

Wow, that's cheap! The $18 I was talking about was from my local hobby store, so no shipping costs. How did you get yours so cheap?

Yeah, I was talking about the HG one.

freedom11 2008-03-08 22:46

in SG or USD?

I just got a Throne Eins and it's gone from episode 22...so fast...probably the same will happen to Zwei when it's released next month....

MeesesGlokmah 2008-03-08 22:52

U.S. Dollars

beamknight87 2008-03-08 23:03

just got the info from the latest episode. LOL with the Thrones.

Also, guess I'm not the only one who smells the special edition red h4x Exia releases -_-.

Knowing Bandai's "smart" marketing strategy, it's highly possible. That'll be my fourth Exia should they release it... Fifth, actually, if I get my hands on a GN-Arms. Damn you, Bandai! Must you drain my wallet of its humble contents!? XD

LightningZERO 2008-03-09 03:50

I really want one red Trans-Am Exia.

And that also increases the chance of a MG Exia since it can be reused :D

Terra 2008-03-09 04:40

That's what I was thinking. They'd get their uses out of an MG Exia with all these additions they keep doing. And since Transam is something all the original Gundams should be capable of, they've got more uses out of the others as well. Maybe an MG Kyrios might not be such a dream (I can hope).

Also it's a way round the new suit problem for the original suits. Since the GN Drives are limited, so are the new suit options. You'd have to rip the GN Drive out of one to make another so by having stuff like Transam you have new model options :P

Sciel 2008-03-09 05:02

I reckon we'll see a MG Exia with Trans AM mode . They'll probably do something similiar to Unicorn Gundam .

Terra 2008-03-09 05:13

I doubt they'd do that since Unicorn is a tranformation, but to convert Exia over to Transam mode would require replacing parts. Some of which would be built into the frame and would have to be taken apart to change.

philmein 2008-03-09 05:18

Man, forget the Tran-Am mode, just gimme an MG Exia RIGHT NOW!
Meh, we all know it'll take 2 years or so before it'll be released.

Astrana 2008-03-09 05:25

I am hating bandai now. seens like they are trying to juice out as much money as they can from 00.

overflag, Graham custom with a different rifle

trinity team is screwed that means new series or team of gundam may come out

GN arms are compatible with other gundams in the series, but seems like it wont for the HGs. since GN arms came with a special exia

ppl are predicting trans-am exia


What else will they do !!!

PS: with this kind of product progress, the MG Exia will probably come out really soon

You're forgetting Overflag with no wings but one GN Drive behind it :p

I think the HG GN Arms will fit the other HG Gundams though

duotiga 2008-03-09 06:53

not to mention the mass variant of Zaku II which is a overdue as of now.....

Just like Bandai's been doing every since they introduced Gunpla, it's nothing new you know :heh:

Didn't they say GN Arms came with a special Exia to fit in?

I guess I will go back to making classic MGs hehehe, thinking about getting a GP-03

anyway, didn't Bandai discontinued GP-03 for a while? I remember when I was in China in 07 i couldn't find any GP-03. The ones on Taobao (Chinese ebay) cost couple hundred USD

The Exia on the HG GN Arms will have the Trans Am red veins, though asides from that it'll be the standard color Exia.

I'd rather wait for this one instead of the Overflag. Honestly, those pesky wings are annoying as crap; they get in the way when I try to make cool poses. =/

They're just getting started. We've yet to see version 2.0 of a Shin Matsunaga custom, as well as a Johnny Ridden custom. And if I'm not mistaken, they'll probably release uglier variations of the Zaku, like the Zaku Cannon and whatnot. :confused:

It was also mentioned that this Exia will have a "gattai configuration," which could be a unique feature necessary for docking the GN-Arms.

Terra 2008-03-09 09:15

It's not like they'd finished installing the GN Drive onto the Flag. The wings might be going back on yet.
