MG Victory, think the V2 will be an all-in-one kit or Bandai will milk us with three versions? I bought both the HG assault and buster to make the V2AB before.

My hope is for a MG Xi gundam and penelope.

I have a question about whether to use grey or black panel lines:

which color panel lines look more realistic, pleaseable, and not as cartoonish?
Grey or black?

ex., what color did this person use?

Im thinking black and I'm wondering if it stands out too much.

redbones 2008-03-21 14:57

He used german grey (white parts) and hullred + khaki (some colored parts)

well, with grey panel lines, if want them darker just apply them again.

fuck why cant they make MG avalanche , 1/100 is still nice, MG would be way nicer

duotiga 2008-03-21 18:49

since they got the mold for 1/100 Exia, convert it to avalanche exia is easier

Exactly. And though wikipedia isn't the most reliable site when it comes to credibility, I did see this interesting note on their MG list:

According to Jan 08 issue of Hobby Japan and Dengeki Hobby, MG Gundam Ver. 2.0 is under development, it will feature core system, G-Armor linkage and a brand new new[sic] technology.

Hmm... :confused:

Patience, my friend. It's almost certain that MG Exia will come out any time now, and when it does, Avalanche Exia might follow thereafter. ;)

hahaha, i defenitly need some patience with gunplas. I tried to keep up with the 00 release, but it wont seem possible they are releasing kits like mad. i got into MGs again, so probably stop getting 00 HGs after the trinity. Unless they came up with new gundams with amazing gundams in the second season (i am pretty sure they will).

I just beat SRW W on DS, so after playing that game for few days straight I ended up ordering Astray Red and Blue Fram, unfotunatly they didn't have the crazy shoulder design in the game for red frame

PS: someone here need to study Bandai's marketing stratergy.

jackyng222 2008-03-21 20:14

is it true an MG force impulse will be release in may? Does a MG impulse sign for a MG sword sillouette to come along?

Man, an MG Infinite Justice in RED would be nice.

One question, can the armor plate for the 1/100 akatsuki be attached to the MG hands without mods? MG hands meaning those that the MG strike has (i would think so since both have the strike frame.

Also, are the akatsuki packs interchangable with the other MG packs?

Yes, but if they release it, it will be PINK :D (painted my no grade 1/100 one in metallic red. Looks good lol)

Astrana, yeah, the MSV of SEED Astray are freaking awesome, sadly, they have not been exploited by Bandai. Dunno why, Blue and Red frame have some great designs (the Mars Jacket armor of the Red Frame is sooo cool).

Astrana 2008-03-21 20:54

For MG Impluse.
i found a site with a no grade mod, it looks pretty good. I wish it came with sword set, so i will paint it red (looks better imo)

http://f7.aaa.livedoor.jp/~mesarion/gallery/imp/imp.htm

Beamknight, I know, SeedXAstray is my favorite mecha in the game I maxxed out all the gundams. Red Frame's special attack is really awesome. I am thought about recoloring the blue frame I got, but just dunno which color schime to use. I will prime it first then decide :P

Hmmm. I dunno. Look how long it took MG Impulse to come out, and Destiny's been over for how long now? :upset:

Yes, but other factors come into play here. IIRC, 00 kits have been outselling CE kits like crazy, so they might take that into consideration.

Bandai probably wasnt in a rush in releasing the Impulse since there was already the SF and the Destiny.

The only thing I heard about 00 kits sales is that it's been selling at 120% of Destiny's. But that's not saying much, since Destiny's Gunpla sales sucked in the first place.

Unless there's another source I don't know about of course.

LightningZERO 2008-03-21 23:07

The Unicorn got itself a MG even though the novel started not too long ago...

Why would they rush anything on a line that's selling worse than used underwear? I'm surprised they've even planned a release on some things.

What's the source you heard for this number.

00's Gunpla line does seem to be doing well since there are antagonist mecha coming out in 1/100 format indicating the the smaller HG kits have met expectations.

I think the figure was reported by Gunota from staff interviews a while back.

And it's kinda telling that 00's Grunts are getting lots of High Grade model kit love, for units that appear only a few times in 00's run.

DarkWarrior 2008-03-21 23:49

Yep, it's Gunota. "Also mentioned in the bottom lefthand corner, the 00 HG plamodel series is selling 120% compared to SEED Destiny's."

Keep in mind, this news is quite old (12/19/07) and only applies to HG kits apparently. It's still the only solid number I heard about 00 Gunpla sales though.

CE Gunpla (at least the SEED stuff, not Destiny) sold quite well I believe. I remember reading on Gunota that it sold somewhere around 10,000,000 units years ago. That's probably why we're still getting a slow but steady stream of CE kits.
