Nail buffer? Sorry for my ignorance

Are you referring to those sandpaper esque tools for filing?

@maknaedik: Quick question, is using finer grits ok for the pre-sanding method? looks really interesting, I tend to use 600 tops for rougher grits, I usually use 800 then go to 1200 then 1500 to finish

I use 400-600-800 grits.. but I do topcoat.. so in your case, it should work fine :)

Yes, the one you use to polish nails. It helps hide scratches from sanding/filing and makes the surface smoothe again.

I gotta wait for a G-3 Version of this, as it seems this is probably THE go to RX-78-2 unless your preference lies in the Anime styled 2.0 or more detail heavy OYW Ver.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2013-06-22 10:30

^ I still prefer the chest-design of the OYW version though, so yeah, I might just buy both OYW and 3.0 :p.

but...but...I wanted a proper TV version of zero:sad:

I do hope it's fake, as it would probably decrease the chances of a TV ver. MG to be made...

Well, it's not.

GundamGuy Blogspot - Gundam Wing: Endlezz Waltz MG Proto Wing Gundam Zero Announced

They're basically doing for the Wing Zero TV what they did for the MG Epyon: take the original Okawara design and give run it through Katoki's style without changing the general design, instead of the outright redesigns of the Endless Waltz Gundams, to fit the Glory of the Losers storyline.

This was actually teased a few months back in the Glory of the Losers manga, where Wing Zero TV's wings were visible in one of the spread pages. At least now they've given it a name that'll explain its presence in the manga: They're essentially billing it as the prototype of the Wing Gundam EW and Wing Zero EW.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2013-06-24 10:23

NOOOO......!!

I want the true Wing Zero TV MG just like I want the MGs of the true TV versions of the other Gundams! Not Katoki-fied design again :(. Not saying it’s bad, but I’m kinda bored with it. Gimme something fresh from Wing-line! Now Gundam Wing TV really looks like Bandai’s forgotten and abandoned step-child. We only get MG Wing and MG (Exclusive) Tallgeese II out of it despite the large number of its fans.

Appel 2013-06-24 15:23

That Wing Zero disappoints me a little as well. I mean yeah, it does look great. But you guys are right, I wanted to see a true TV version as well.
Oh well, maybe they are gonna release one later :T

Being a Wing fan, of course Iím gonna get this as it looks quite nice too, but if the release of this MG Proto Zero means we wonít get MG TV Zero then it really sucks :( (just like Epyon, Tallgeese, etc).

What's the problem with it? It retains the overall design of the Wing Zero TV while adding Katoki details to it. It's no different from what they did with the MG Gundam SEED GAT-X series, which added and/or changed details so that they would look better in MG while still retaining the general design.

It has added details like other Katokiís designs, yes. But I like the simpler design of the TV version like the ones we already get in the forms of HG 1/100 & 1/60 and RD. Plus, itís a matter of spirit. This MG clearly stated that this is Wing Proto Zero, not the Wing Zero we know and love (unlike the updated GATX MGs). Instead, itís a Katoki-redesign of Zero for the Glory of Losers manga. The same thing also happen to MG Epyon EW and some others although design-wise the differences between Epyon TV and Epyon EW are more prominent.

The Ver. Ka of this though and the Epyon have more differences than the new GAT MGs, since Katoki went in and messed with the aesthetics

All the GAT series MGs did was change the proportions to "modern" sleeker standards (note that more details and colors dont count, as every MG does that since most series, OVAs/Movies exempt, simply cannot animate all those details and colors without wasting time and money), while the Epyon for example had a chest and wing redesign in particular (while keeping the core elements, like the new Proto Zero's binders)


Man the more I look at the Proto Zero design Im lovin it more and more, its the perfect bridge between the Custom and the TV ver imo

I wonder how its gonna hold the TBR....its bigger/heavier than the Wing TV BR, and it does not have any other way to secure it (unlike the Wing TV ver "claws" to hold it). Maybe foldable pegs and the rear of the guns to peg into slots in the forearm?

Yup. That's how it is in Glory of Losers manga from what I've heard.

It depends on your degree of distinguishing factor. If you look at it from the general aesthetic, then yes theyíre ďthe sameĒ just like how Epyon EW & Epyon TV are ďthe sameĒ. Still, if youíre willing to pay attention to some details, theyíre different. Hereís some comparison:

I'm not talking about simple detail additions, the GAT-X series also had lots of changes in aesthetic: see the MG Aile Strike Remaster, where its Aile Striker is very much changed to be sleeker and more "pointy" in the same manner as the wing binders on this Wing Zero, or how the MG Blitz suddenly has a pauldron that now visibly shares the same frame as the Strike (a change a friend kept bitching to me about :heh: ), or in general how the weapons for them have sharper aesthetics, with the most drastic being the Aegis' beam rifle and the Duel's railgun, which are quite obviously changed from their incredibly simple originals.

This kind of redesign has actually gone as far back as the early MG's: for example, compare the original images of the Zeta Gundam to the first MG version: You'll find that some parts have undergone drastic shape changes, most prominently the legs which reflect Katoki's later Zeta variant works rather than the more triangular shape of the actual mecha and the later 2.0.

Admittedly there are MG's that stick as close to the actual design as possible, most tellingly the MG Wing Gundam, which is what I think people expected when they want an MG Wing Zero. The actual practice of changing around shapes and details for the Master Grade version though isn't especially new, and in this case I think they did well with the redesign.

Based off the naming, which is "Wing Gundam Prototype Zero", I think it's supposed to be the original Wing Zero, aka the basis from which all the Gundams were made in lore. If I'm to make a prediction, I imagine this will be the machine that Quatre would complete and pilot into combat, if GoL will follow that part of the TV series.

I think we all know that redesign is a part of gunpla since a long time ago. The problem here is Bandai themselves acknowledge that these kits we get (Proto Zero, Epyon EW, Sandrock EW, Deathscythe EW, Shenlong EW, Heavyarms EW, Tallgeese EW) are not the version we’ve been wanting for so long. The proof is there: Bandai were able to release both MGs of Wing EW & Wing TV, but then they shy away from releasing the other TV MGs (aside from the Exclusive Tallgeese II). They can do it, but they won’t. That’s what makes Wing-fans disappointed. Hell, they chose to release the MG of Proto Zero (which hardly known by anybody nor made that great of an impression in the story) instead of the true Wing Zero TV version fans have been waiting for all these years.

kakakka 2013-06-25 10:23

From what I remember from the teaser months ago, Bandai never hide the fact that they are going to release this as EW re-design. So this is not a surprise; the complains are just the usual and not that big a deal.

Exactly like I said above. They deliberately wonít touch the TV version and go with EW/Katoki version instead to push the recent mangaís popularity. The fans of the TV version got side-lined that way.

kakakka 2013-06-25 11:23

Well, there are many designs that get sideline that would look good as MG. So, all this is the usual ("They should have done this"-lines). I myself is looking forward to TV version of Wing Zero, but I already know there's going to be redesign when they put that image project on. The other time I remember was Nu Gundam redesign. The model, as I look at it now, is great, but there were people complaining about how it's different with the head (lol) and Psychoframe insert.

IMO it’s not usual because Bandai actually make MG Wing Zero TV on-principle but deliberately change some of its details (and even its name) to make it into the non-TV version. Unlike those who wish for MG Justice, this MG Wing Proto Zero announcement really feels more like trolling than simply rejecting fans' request.

kakakka 2013-06-25 12:31

They already hinted this months ago. I hardly think that this announcement trolling.

You donít get it. Itís not the early hint that matters. Itís Bandaiís intention to avoid the TV version. Thatís it.

Not if Bandai basically already make 90% of the expected kit but instead labeling it as another. Unlike MG Justice which Bandai have to build from scratch, in this case, they can easily make more profit by releasing the more popular Wing Zero TV, but noooo. They have to avoid the TV version like the plague for some reason. If this is usual to you, then let’s agree to disagree coz we’re just going in circles like this.
