Real Grade Freedom...

Speaking of RG Freedom, how are the RG kits? I've yet to buy one. Are the parts easily loose, due to their small size?

casval cehack 2011-10-29 23:43

RG RX-78-2 (no. 01) and the Zakus have a lot of armor plates that keep falling when you try to pose it. It's mostly solved in Strike (no. 03), though the minimized number of armor parts lost options like attaching the beam rifle to the back skirt or the sliding shield handle. With the Freedom now including a dedicated ABS rifle hand, the fragile manipulators can now be reserved for better poses. RG Mark II would probably be the most detailed if not perfect 1/144 kit.

Just finished my HG Genoace. Well, it's a very easy build. It only has three runners so that's expected. Very poseable guy, indeed! However, it looks underwhelming compared to Age-1 Normal, which was priced the same as it, when it comes to gimmicks. I'll start on its review by tomorrow, and hopefully finish it as well tomorrow :)

Hey, you´re right. I did not notice that before :heh:

Me neither. You could very well be right, appel.

Looking at those new pictures, I gotta say I love how bandai has included that beamsabermount-forearm, even though it was only used once for heero.

Appel 2011-10-30 05:23

the FA unicorn is a MG release afterall and they only have to make new plates for the extra weapons and boosters. i think making one red plate wouldnt be too much to ask for XD

and about the heavyarms' beam saberarm, i really like that, too! its nice that although they are obviously cashing in on the wing series they still try to keep a lot of attention for details.

It would just be something new for me, if they make thrusters with two colors. I've build a crapload of HG, NG and MG kits and I've yet to see a thruster with two colors.

Say Apple, does the PG Red Frame have dual-colored thrusters?

i thought i remembered that one of my kits has yellow thrusters inside but turns out that i just remembered photos of the painted ReZEL :P its colorguide says that the inside of the thrusters should be yellow.

the PG astray doesnt really have thrusters. it only has two VERY tiny nozzles on its tiny backpack^^

Don't be too happy right away :P those are some big-ass thrusters (the powers of the space and hyphen really shine here). 's not gonna be nuthin' reg'lar. Enough ridicule.

finally got to finishing up freedom by doing the shield (it's ok) and the rifle (hate it. won't stay in his hand properly, won't stay on his ass properly too).

Now the trial begins. I'll have to refrain from building Wing, as the next two weeks will be examapalooza...

which wing gundam did you get?

Tons of new stuff on the HG Age series kits...

=D

HG 1/144 Gundam AGE-1T Titus (Release Date: Nov 2011, Price: 1200 yen)
HG 1/144 RGE-8790CW Genoace Custom [Wolf Eniacl Use] (Release Date: Dec 2011, Price: 1280 yen)



HG 1/144 Gundam AGE-1S Sparrow (Release Date: Dec 2011, Price: 1200 yen)
HG 1/144 Zedas (Release Date: Nov 2011, Price: 1575 yen)



Gundam AGE HG 1/144 G EXES (Release Date: Dec 2010, Price: 1260)




HG 1/144 Baqto (Release Date: Dec 2011, Price: 1500 yen)





With that, I really can't wait to see what Bandai does for:

MG AGE-1 Normal
MG AGE-1 Titus
MG AGE-1 Sparrow
SD AGE-1 Normal
SD AGE-1 Titus
SD AGE-1 Sparrow

It may seem that I may continue getting more GunPla after the 00 kits I want Bandai to make.

:p

maknaedik 2011-10-30 21:23

Though I know that MG Titus is currently on development, I can't help but be tempted at HG Titus just because of the good reviews I've seen, so far, of Age-1 Normal

Bonta Kun 2011-10-30 22:14

Can't say I'm a fan of the Titus but I do like the Sparrow. That one would look great with a custom paint job, makes me want it, thinking about it:p

The EXES is cool as well but that would def need a custom paint job, that plain white isn't quite working.

I haven't gotten round to watching AGE yet and honestly never thought about getting any of the AGE stuff but more I see of em more I think I might jump on that band wagon(whihc I probably will towards the end of the year)
I think with custom paint, they would look great.

Something thats always been on my mind but couldn't quite place was what AGE 1 kinda reminded me of and only just realized it's kinda Transformers like.
It's kinda obvious yet not, I just couldn't really place it, I think I was simply overthinking it:p

casval cehack 2011-10-30 22:34

A Batman custom paint job on the G EXES would give the kit some justice.

Got the TV version. The Ver.Ka./EW version never really did it for me. Plus, with wing being my Gateway Series, it's fitting.

HG 1/144 Genoace review UP! http://redblondemean.wordpress.com/r...enoace-review/

I wish for more variations, though that's expected of course :P

You may want to watch AGE first before buying the models. Gundam AGE is...cute. never thought I'd say that. :uhoh::p

Also, I'd really hope that Bandai will make MG Baqto. They have to make up for not making Masurao and Susanowo into MGs. :mad:

Looks like a well designed kit. I might as well get the white one just to serve as Unicorn's wingman.
