Incoming MG Atlas Ver. KA, we all know it.
Now please Full Mechs Helmwige

Skye629 2017-01-20 01:14

P-Bandai GM Sniper II White Dingo Ver.

We all saw that one coming right?





And Barbatos/New Reginlaze(?)/Bael officially shown off, no signs as of yet of the supposed Gundam Vidar "upgrade"/what we saw at the end of the new OP


Now I can safely sit back and decide on whether to get a Barbatos kit, and which one at that. Definitely picking up the Bael though. Astaroth still sits on my #1 spot for the ASW-G line however

MG JUSTICE GUNDAM!!!!! :eek::eek:

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-rolnlYI2t...321482704b.jpg

*disregard the url saying it's the Infinite Justice, it's definitely the original version.* :heh:

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2017-01-24 03:42

If you know my posting history in this thread, then yíall should know that MG Justice is amongst my top tier Gunpla wishlist and Iím so glad that it finally happens! Really excited for this one coz I actually like Justice more than Infinite :D. And it has better proportion compared to the RG too.

Still, if Iím allowed to nitpick, I see that the gun turrets on the glider are made smaller than the original design. Thatís too bad. I like the big gun turrets. Thatís one of the things that differentiate Justice from the Infinite. But oh well, beggars canít be choosers. This is as close to the original design as the MG 1/100 can get (ignoring the old 1/100), and I bet the Metal Build version and the 3rd party version (if they plan to make it) will stylize the Justice design even more.

Skye629 2017-01-24 19:06

Erm, isnt that the Justice they used in the diorama display for the MG Providence?


Unless they already have it fully done and we glossed over it thinking it was a customized model solely made for the display piece

Chibiloli 2017-01-26 00:43

Okay, just a quick review on a couple of IBO kits, the Shiden and Geirail, now I assembled the Geirail first, and let me tell you, for what is essentially a tieren Graze, it has quite the amount of stickers, and don't be fooled by its smaller box compared to the shiden, its got more runners, and some of the stickers require some precision on the builders part so I had to drink some Tea just to steady my hands for the job, the Shiden though was a lot easier and much more impressive to look at, although upon closer look it appears hunchbacked thanks to the backpack, the Shiden only comes with two stickers, for the inner sensor and outer visor sensor.

Skye629 2017-01-31 03:22

Whoa wth it comes with a base? Color me impressed (and Tekkadan decals for first batches, not sure about the Gjallerhorn decals though)

It's a good thing I pre-ordered this as soon as my frequented store accepted orders. Though it may be a long shot to think that I'll be getting the first release.

Skye629 2017-02-11 07:46

Whats the release date for the new IBO gundam marker set again? I probably need it now considering my situation


Long story short.....I lost a piece, namely the command antennae for my 1/100 Schwalbe Graze (the P-Bandai Gaelio one). And naturally, Im pretty pissed, Im hoping it shows up sometime in the future or I find it, but at present Im now looking at having to get a McGillis Schwalbe Graze to pilfer that one part from it and have a 99% leftover model kit.............then I have to paint it with the marker. Not even sure if the purple is the right color either


Currently looking at about $38 or so for one small part.........


Man I really wish there was a part replacement program of some sort for overseas...even if its like $15 for a single replacement part including shipping its still way better than having to buy a whole new kit





Do you guys know a way to further secure the model parts without permanently cementing them together or full on painting them? If such a method exists I probably want to try using it as I assemble, to stop this damn problem from happening

Holy shit that box art. I've never liked Providence that much, but that art really lives up to the biblical name

Holy crap that box art. Never was a fan of the Providence, but damn, that art makes it look really really good.

Bandai will improve the details of the prototype to follow the blueprint of MG 1/100 Freedom Gundam Ver. 2.0 and MG 1/100 Providence Gundam.
:( Here's hoping (against all odds) that the final product will be closer to RoDa Justice than to MG Freedom 2.0 *fingers crossed*

Faux Mecha 2017-02-22 10:58

i never bought an HG METEOR unit before so i m asking whether its still compatible with the Revive Freedom or not.

So I've seen preorders up for that new Zeta Gundam and I gotta ask, is it transformable without swapping out parts? Removing the parts I'm find with but not swapping bits and pieces.

We haven't gotten any new pictures/info as of yet, at least from the places I look at


Its safe to assume its a partsformer though, there hasn't really been a modern kit outside of MG/RG which could fully transform without part swapping while maintaining any form of acceptable stability

Tormenk 2017-03-02 07:09

Snapped a few pictures of the upcoming model kits featured at Kinokuniya x Gunpla.



Bael and Providence both looks real good, so here's my own thoughts from seeing them up close. The Gjallarhorn symbol on the left shoulder is actually made up of blue parts instead of a decal. Bael's backpack connection looks less solid than I would like, the sword holder on the backskirt actually has joints that enable it to swing out. Probably to make poses like grabbing the swords easier. Surface detailing for the Providence is sweet. The flat Dragoons on the backpack looks tiny compared to the rest. Headsculpt is immaculate but the eyes sit so far back in the head it's difficult to get a clear look. And the shield is still too darn big lol.

The preorder form lists the first release for the 1/100 Bael comes with a stand and a decal sheet, which is probably going to be universal for the general release anyway.

kgrodriguez 2017-03-02 22:49

We were talking about Bael and his Calamity War appearance in the Mech thread, and I came up with this question -

As a builder, would you rather Banda churn out these original forms for Barbatos, Bael, Flauros, and Guison, or have them show 4-5 more of those 72 Gundams?

Rising Dragon 2017-03-02 23:45

We've already seen the original forms for Bael, Barbatos, and Flauros.

We already did? Together with the weapons? Well then that makes my question meaningless. :heh:

Rising Dragon 2017-03-02 23:57

The 4th form of the Barbatos in season 1 was specifically stated to be a recreation of the Barbatos' original appearance. All signs point to Bael being in its original armor configuration, on account of it being a particularly important symbolic piece within Gjallarhorn. Bandai's already released model images of the Flauros in its original color scheme before it was painted in the Ryusei-Go colors--and as it was apparently defeated in battle during the Calamity War, it is most likely unchanged from its original incarnation.

The only one we don't know the original form of is the Gusion--all we know is that the Rebake setup that Tekkadan created restored much of its original functionality, so we know it had a classic Gundam setup. Aside from specific setups that would depend on it, like the Kimaris Vidar, the weapon sets of the Calamity War-era Gundam Frames are largely meaningless as they'd most likely be swapped out as situations warrant, much like they do now.

Faux Mecha 2017-03-03 01:51

makes me wonder why they haven't made 1/100 scale or even Master Grade versions of the G-Reco suits, yeah i know the show has controversies surrounding it but the suit designs were sorta cool, i mean the Grimoire is popular for some reason, at least AGE somehow got MG treatments minus the canceled Gafran,

also we need a 1/100 or MG G-Self, the HG version is not that good.

Give it time. G-Reco is a flop just like X, so it will take time. Age is an anomaly where Bandai was in a hyperactive mode in producing MGs when the show was still airing. But now that G-Reco has done airing, Bandai will need a stronger reason to make G-Reco MGs. It took more or less 18 years for MG X and 19 years for MG DX to be released after their flop show ended. So that’s probably the amount of time that we must prepare to wait especially now that the status of MG releases are becoming more and more uncertain.

MG Age-3 Normal & MG Age-FX also got cancelled mercilessly, don’t forget that.

Eh, I'd settle for the RoDa G-Self while waiting for the MG for another decade.

kgrodriguez 2017-03-03 04:41

Why is the status of MGs uncertain?

They have been seeing less and less releases over the years, with more focus being shifted to RG and stuff like the 1/100 IBO line, which are both at/close to MG quality, yet cheaper

I wonder if the Dantalion and his backpack-to-armor gimmick is originally an idea for the Virtue family. :heh:

i can't believe it took me time to noticed Dantalion's shield/claw weapon has a demonic-looking skull face on it which i am not sure was intentional.
