Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread) *sigh* Just like the MG version of the GAT-X Gundams & RM Strike, this MG Gunner Zaku Warrior is such a departure from the original design that it can't completely replace the old 1/100 kits for purists. This is why I still keep my 1/100 Blitz even though I have the MG. That true-to-lineart kit still has value over the redesign.

I pay it for Woundwort, Foxhound, Pale Rider, and RG astrea

Worth it

I am surprised that RG Astray Gold Amatsu Mina is not a P-Bandai lol

Btw, we have a new line of Gundam figure called Metal Structure and they started big, literally:

You know, at first, I didn't really put much attention to HiRM Astray Noir, but the more I see it, the more I like it:

IMO the bulkiness of the Astray HiRM mold complement the "gangsta" appearance of Astray Noir more nicely than Astray Red Frame.

justavisitor 2019-06-22 14:42

just how many astray variations in there?? I am still stuck in the era of red, blue and gold frame lol

Rising Dragon 2019-06-22 15:45

Too fucking many.

Red, Blue, Gold, Green, Mirage, and Noir, and that's just the original basic frame design. Never mind the Out Frame, Delta, and Lord Astrays.

wavehawk 2019-06-25 07:45

...and if you go by the manga/sidestories, they kind of call theDreadnought Gundam the X Astray...

...Seriously, Astrays are like Ninjas. One or two are cool, a whole hidden village of them are disposable hordes of cannon fodder at this point...

Hoping the FF unit is removable so we can get just the basic Odysseus Gundam underneath. As a whole, the Penelope is actually kinda disgusting. :heh:

That thing looks like it's wearing a giant white fur coat

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2019-06-28 20:09

HiRM God is a really nice and much-needed addition considering that the MG God, while good, still needs a refresher. And the HiRM's tendency to bulk up the mech should be a good fit for God.

Yeah, Penelope looks awkward & goofy, but that makes me more interested to watch it in action in a proper anime other than the games:

All these images of the RG Nu Gundam look so SEXY :love:

Edit:

So yes, the HGUC Penelope does have a complete Odysseus Gundam underneath.

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread) The mace's head looks proportionally small.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2019-07-04 19:53

^ Yeah. what's up with the mace? People like the mace because it has a big "head"-part. Is the MG-mace suppose to be retractable and can become bigger? From that image, it looks more like a spear.

LoweGear 2019-07-04 20:05

The mace does look thinner yes, though it's pretty much the same length as always.

Router25 2019-07-05 04:02

If the mace is gonna be that small, I wonder how they'll pull off the Wrench Mace, the Helmwige Sword, and the Lupus Rex Mace? I hope see the Lupus sword keep the same proportions.

Illsteir 2019-07-05 05:07

^The Wrench Mace isn't going to be much of a problem as long as they make the handle rigid (its shape solves this problem) and the head mostly hollow. They can throw in a clear stand just in case.

Speaking of 6th form, I have a feeling that they'll release it as a P-Bandai add-on set :eek:

wavehawk 2019-07-05 07:01

If the Mace is smaller, then I expect it to have a few more gimmicks, like maybe it opens up or expands.

...Or maybe the future add-on weapons will fit onto the existing Mace?

- Thinking further: The original Barbatos HG kit maces were purely hollow. I think that if Bandai made a Mace with more gimmicks on it, it would be too heavy for the MG kit to hold or carry without dropping. If Bandai made a hollow Mace, we'd all be raging about how it's a cop-out. You can't win...

I think the Lupus Sword might look better if it was a bit slimmer, but that's my opinion---I always thought it looked like a Cricket Bat and couldn't take it seriously. If it was a bit slimmer and looked more like a thick sword, I'd be for it.

All gunpla are inherently hollow to a certain extent, with even inner frames having empty space inside them. A hollow weapon isn't really a problem by itself, and it only becomes an issue if you can see how hollow it is from a position that's visible on display.

wavehawk 2019-07-10 05:34

I'm talking about a purely hollow mace. The MG Mace looks like it has more than just two halves snapped together. We'll know more when the kit comes out, but I'm still thinking there's more to it than Bandai just wanting a smaller mace.

Faux Mecha 2019-07-10 07:31

i dunno, they probably tired to differentiate the regular mace from the Lupus Rex's mace.

And to no one's surprise: P-Bandai will be releasing an MG Heavyarms EW + Igel Equipment pack:

SILENTANIMELOVER 2019-07-18 22:20

Damn. That's a lot of armaments. I wish I could see this in a Gundam anime.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2019-07-19 04:40

The P-Bandai label killed my interest for the MG H-Arms + Igel. Especially since I already own the main MS. I'll just wait for third parties to get the Igel.

This can be good news or bad news depending on whether you want one F90 Gundam for each couple of Packs or not.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2019-07-30 06:13

Wow, Bandai is on "Mass Produce"-roll these days. After Maganac Squad, now the Death Army, and they're all from the already-available AU kit-lines like HGAC & HGFC.

So...will we see Balient/GX-Bits corps from HGAW or GINN/Zaku Warriors squad from HGCE? Or probably doubling down on HGAC by releasing Aries' & Virgos? I sure hope so.

Faux Mecha 2019-07-30 06:59

meanwhile we are still waiting of the rest of the Shuffle Alliance Gundams in HGFC. :heh:

LoweGear 2019-07-31 01:19

Interesting gimmick for the new main character Gundam in Re:Rise -

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
It's a modular armor system, more akin to the the Liger Zero's CAS from Zoids: New Century, rather than the other changeable systems like the Striker & Silhouette packs or the AGE Wear.

The stoutness of the Core Gundam and its angry face though kinda makes me think "Tyrion Lannister" for some reason :heh:

RRW 2019-07-31 01:40

Interesting enough that the core Gundam is based on RX78 Core fighter

I'm probably going to get just one MG F90, but that's because I'm expecting a Unit II and an F90-II eventually. That many Mission packs, it'll be too tempting for Bandai.

Also, the F "Fighter" mission pack reminds me of the Sturm Gallus, with those rapid....
punching
spikes....

To give people an idea of just how large the upcoming HGUC Penelope is, and why it costs 7,480 yen, here's a size comparison with the RG Sazabi:

P-Bandai: HGUC RX-78-6 Gundam Mudrock

I wasn't a fan of the Mudrock before, but this HGUC is just :love: Too bad it's P-Bandai, though it doesn't seem to expensive even considering shipping.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2019-08-27 23:27

I'll take it. Much cheaper than the GFF and actually has better articulation.
