Good Idea.

Still, it's disappointing that Bandai didn't give us the 'burst' mode of the MG Qant's chest-core like the RD. That kinda make any efforts fail unless you made the the burst core yourself. Nevertheless, I'm very interested to see your final product ^^.

@Appel
That looks great. Btw, exactly what part of the Assault Shroud that is loose? And are the joints solid? I want to see it pose with Bazooka Striker XD.

Thatís good to hear. Ok, Iíll add this to my must-buy list. I know, it's gonna be a LONG list since the other GAT MGs will be coming soon XD. I just hope Justice will join the party soon too.

they just might make a justice. who knows! since they are making the GAT series suits they might as well finish the ZGMF series.

the duel has one more flaw though by the way, some of the decals dont make a lot of sense. some of them are just dark grey on a slighly lighter grey which makes them hard to read. they are a little too sublte. and some of the other decals were just impossible to put on for me, i hate those decals that you have to wrap around a piece XD it always looks terrible when i try it :P

Are you talking about rough-transfer of peel-off decals? If it’s a rough-transfer, then I gotta agree that it’s kinda difficult to put one rt-decals on more than one side well. So far, I only experienced ‘1 rt-decal vs 2 sides’ and (fortunately) I did it well. As for peel-off, I rarely have a hard time putting them on, unless the spot is really small or too narrow for my fingers. I’ve put a po-decal around MG Wing Custom’s thigh and it’s pretty easy and looks good. Where exactly are those ‘impossible’ decals' spot(s) located? I’m curious ;).

PS: btw, aren't you gonna do a vid-review of Duel for Youtube? If you gonna do it, do it in HD! :D Lucky for those who have nice camcorder T-T.

im talking about the sticker decals. the dry transfer ones are actually working well on the duel^^
the ones im talking about are on the legs and the arms. for some reason they always look bad when i try those :P

and as for a video about it, i simply dont have the time for it right now. or the talent, im a terrible video editor XD and while my camera does record 720p videos the quality simply doesnt cut it for me because of the terrible lighting conditions in my apartment.

edit: i also just saw that the duel is at the top of the "whats hot" list over at HLJ! im really not surprised about that^^

What topcoat do you use and where do you buy it?

If you are from somewhere else nevermind. :)

close but no cigar! XD im from germany^^
the top coat i use is "the army painter super matt varnish". i buy at a local games workshop. at 11 bucks for a 400ml can its pretty expensive but its worth it! the finish is amazing and its dry enough to work with within an hour, unlike other brands of top coat that need like a day or more to fully dry :P

RX93-2 2012-02-22 16:51

Games workshop, Welp.
I usually get my stuff from a paintstore in bulk, but top coat has been hard to find somewhere lately so thanks. Never thought about those games workshop places.

duotiga 2012-02-22 19:29

Guess the MG Duel front skirt issue is the same as the 1/100 ver which is kinda loose also

If there are only two minor flaws and one of them is unique to Duel, then Buster will probably close to perfect.

suiton629 2012-02-22 21:34

It's not surprising that the Assault Shroud parts are loose. They probably did that so you can take it off easier.

OMG! Is it real? My favorite of the 5 GAT series is next?! Oh yeah, stealthy Gundam ftw!

I too am surprised since I'm quite sure that they'll do Buster first after Duel (they're buddies after all :D) and saving the fans' favorite (Aegis) for last.

1/144 HG M1 astray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes another one of my list is done!, now only 3 remaining :eyespin:

Also very happy with MG blitz, definately going to get it!, but that's no surprise anymore, just a when and how much :D

Seed going to ruin me :D

More waiting... :(

But still, Blitz's design is my favorite among the first five (Buster is just a sentiment of character and long distance-fighting, not pure beauty, as one could see in the initial kit-sellling). Great to see how it'd look in MG soon!

HasuMasu 2012-02-23 04:51

Blitz? I too am surprised, you would think that after the Duel then Buster is the obvious one.

Well played.

I also thought that Heavyarms will be released before Sandrock, but alas, it happened again. But that's fine for as long as they're all confirmed to get a release.

RX93-2 2012-02-23 05:36

Nah you pull them in with the Duel-AS.
Then you release the pretty cool but showwise unimportant blitz.

And here is my prediction based on nothing at all:
Next you do the buster, some people love it others will get it to have all 5.
And you finish with Aegis cause everybody likes it.


MG 1/100 Marasai
HGUC Anksha
RG Gundam Mk-II A.E.U.G.
My poor wallet. :(

It's possible that Buster would be the last (after this unexpected move), just like Heavyarms for the Wing line.

RX93-2 2012-02-23 06:16

Heavyarms was a fan-favorite, with sandrock being less popular but still cool.
That is what I based it on, with Aegis being loved by a lot of people.
Put the less popular one in the middle of the lineup so people get them all while waiting for their favorites.

Nice releases there! :) :) Will the Blitz Gundam come with a plate of transparent armor parts for the mirage colloid thing?

What's your 3 other mobile suits? :D It'll be great if the M1 Astray uses a completely new mould. Will be a bit disappointing if they just reuse the older HG Astray kits.

I actually it will. But if it does, then that'll be freaking amazing.

My backlogs are:
HG 1/144 Sinanju
HG 1/100 Leopard-D
HG 1/100 Maxter
MG 1/100 Char's Zaku 2.0
MG 1/100 Sinanju

Now that we'll be getting MG Titus and MG Marasai, which are red, I'll have another set of backlogs. I'm pretty sure I'll build Titus and Marasai the moment I get them for review's sake, but I still have a pending HG Reborns and MG Epyon to paint. Thing is, I can't paint until May. So by May, I have to paint 4 kits @_@

Oh yeah, 3 (if Aegis gets released this year, but I'm not confident, knowing Bandai) red MGs gets released this year, then I'll be VERY happy and grateful to Bandai.

Same point, however I might argue that Buster is loved more by these people than Aegis. Aegis is slightly more difficult to engineer though to warrant a delay.

Saw the other new HGs on the other thread: Shaldoll Kai, Falscia and a bit of the red Genoace 2.

Since you are such a red MS enthusiast, have you already collected or interested in MG version of Charís MSs other than his red Zaku II? You know, MGs like Charís Gelgoog, ZíGok, Rick Dias, and even an RX-78 Gundam of his own (all of them are red). Just curious :D

The M1 Astray has no parts in common with the Astrays actually (not on the HG level anyhow), so it should be a totally new mold. As shown here:

I have his RX-78, but I don't have the rest. Don't worry, I'm planning to buy Gelgoog 2.0. I'm still unsure, but I might get the DOM because of its gigantic weapon. I'm a bit interested on the Z'gok, but I think I'll only buy that when it's on a super sale. Sadly, I won't buy a Rick Dias, but if it ever gets a 2.0, then consider it SOLD :)

Oh, what's that MS beside RG Freedom in the pic? Is that an Extreme Gundam in red color?

Damn, HG M1 Astray really looks good. I'm just kinda irritated on how weak it is in SDGO, HAHA!

I could come up with a few reasons why MG Buster got shelved towards a later date :-

1) It's not a popular design, given how Deaka was supposed to be killed off in the initial version of the script. Instead it was rewritten to have him defect just so the Buster could be portrayed in a more positive light.

2) Engineering issues had to be resolved given the redesign enlarged version of the cannons for the MG Kit.

Appel 2012-02-23 09:37

woo! i want the blitz SO badly, im really happy that it will comeout before the other GAT series MGs^^

- Strike dagger (very unlikely)
- Slash zaku warrior (Yzak color) (highly probable when destiny hits HD)
- Windam (we'll see, maybe when destiny get's HD)

There is also the gu-aiz still...

Appel 2012-02-23 17:18

alright, i have to revise my statement about the MG duel just a little bit after playing around with it for a day^^

-the additional front- and backskirts of the assault shroud like to pop off a lot. the backskirts are sometimes hard to remove though, too so i dont know what to make of that :P
-the leg armor of the assault shroud likes to fall off when you move the legs a lot, it just slides off. but when you hold it in place while moving the leg its not a big problem and will stay on.
-the hands suck VERY hard. as you all know those are the same hands with swappable fingers that the new MG wing kits use. they like to fall off a lot here too... and while the trigger finger and open fist hands hold the rifle, the beam sabres and the rail gun pretty well and securely it just cant hold the big "cannon" (no idea what its called, the manual just calls it "cannon"). when you make it hold that think it really just rests on the hand and the shoulder, it isnt really holding on to it.

but those are pretty much the only issues that i have. and i think these issues are all pretty easy to solve with some sticky tack!

i just hope that bandai will drop these stupid wing hands XP i like what they are trying to do with them. im a fan of manipulators with less articulation as long as they hold the weapons well! but these hands simply dont work too well. they are ok for small stuff like regular rifles and sabre handles but for something as big as that "cannon" id rather have the articulated hands because those actually work :T

casval cehack 2012-02-23 20:10

They are forcing us to buy aftermarket manipulators, even though they gave options in MG 00 7S/G.

Thanks for the mini review.
