HAHA XD When I first heard of the actual annoucement, I was like :twitch: but then I was :D It's a crazy coincedence. I wish that would happen moren often :)

Anyway, it's great news that we already have release-schedule for so many MG's. I'm actually quite happy with the annoucment of the MG Gafran. I really hoe it sells well, because then Bandai could consider releasing more AU Grunts. It's the second AU Grunt suit to come out, I believe, and it's a shame so many other great designs have been ignored until now.

RG Skygrasper with both Launcher ans Sword Striker Packs is a reason to get a second RG Aile Strike. What really surprised me though is that Bandai will release the AGE-1 and it's variants in such a short period of time. I wonder if the AGE-2 and AGE-3 will get the same treatment.

i think so, too... as i heard that announcement my wallet started to hurt XD it basically means that i need 2 RG aile strikes and a RG skygrasper... i want to dispay the sword strike and the launcher strike together with the skygrasper with the aile stricker attatched^^ i dont need a third RG strike to display it as the aile strike though, i already have the MG.

i also just finished my EVA-01 awakening version!

http://www.abload.de/img/foto1171quo91.jpg

i know that it is not a gundam but i just wanted to let you guys know that this thing is freaking AMAZING!
its tall (about the same height as the MG unicorn in destroy mode), it looks almost perfect out of the box (i only painted the small red dots on the chest and the shoulders) and its a really fun build^^
compared to a gundam its somewhere between 1/100 NG and a MG. it doesnt really have a full inner frame but it does have some gimmicks build inside so its not all hollow.
articulation is great as well, it just feels a little flimsy. but thats probably because its so tall and slender.

tomorrow or maybe on monday im gonna start on my MG Hi-Nu. cant wait to start it, the box is freaking enormous for a MG!^^

Looks pretty damn epic^^

MG Hi-Nu is like the holy grail for me. Everytime I have the money to buy it, its out of stock. And if I don't have it, it's stock :upset: Anyway, have fun building it and share your thoughts with us toghether with some pics of it :D

i hear you! i had the same problem every time DX it IS one of the most popular MG kits though so its no big surprise to me that it is sold out all the time.

and yes of course, ill post some photos^^ that will take some time though, panel lining, top coating and building it will take a lot of time, this really isnt a kit that you can just build in a day. maybe i will even skip the top coating, i might not have enough left for it. it does come with a TON of runners afterall! :O

Heh, it shouldn't be a one-day-kit. Amuro demands you take the time for it.
In your pic of Eva 01, strike Freedom looks a bit "wtf is THAT?" at him.

Are those sketches of the GAT series legit? As in: really for the developement of MGs? If so, then Yay Aegis. Might get my hands on that one, if I have the money (argh being a student is expensive, my savings are evaporating!)

The Strike Noir is AWESOME! I highly recommend it. It's a great kit with tons of weapons for display-ability. It's very similar to the Strike in terms of the build (they share the same frame, of course), but it still looks very different from the orginal.

I'm just so happy that were actually getting the first batch of GAT MS <3

If 2012 is really the year of MGs, then they might continue releasing 2 MGs in a month, I wish LOL.

It looks like Age-1 is crossing swords with Zedas....MG Zedas on the way?

I think Bandai wouldn't make Gafran if they have no intention in making Zedas and its alternate color, Baqto is also a possibility. What we can hope is for it to be successful or else, it would be just like MG GN-X

duotiga 2011-11-05 08:50

for MG Duel boxart..will they do this pose? :heh:

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2011-11-05 09:37

They should.

aeriolewinters 2011-11-05 09:38

Obligatory pose is obligatory, If they do release the Strike 2.0, they should have dat pose for the boxart.

duotiga 2011-11-05 09:44

well the MG Aile Strike boxart is the OP pose, i dont find anything wrong for it....unless for 2.0 they do this?

How are the SEED and SEED Destiny MG kits? If I were to get them, I'd probably stick with:

Strike --> Aile Strike --> Launcher Strike --> Sword Strike --> Freedom --> Strike Freedom

...basically the main lead suit and all of its variants.

HasuMasu 2011-11-05 09:56

AGE kits lookin' fine, RG Freedom I don't even have to think about.

Breaks my heart that a full-armored Unicorn is impossible in the 1/144th scale though.

Or is it?

I also think the MG AGE-1 Normal looks pretty cool. And I don't think Bandai is going to do a FA Unicorn in HG 1/144 unless it shows up in the anime and or if the MG ver Ka one sells well.

Possible. Bandai had made bigger and more back-heavy HGs in the past. Or they can release the armor along with the Base Jabber Type 94 as a FG.

i know that its awesome!^^ the strike itself was awesome already so im not surprised that the strike noir is, too. i probably will buy it later on but right now im happy with just having the strike only.

i also just finished lining the pieces of my MG Hi-Nu. and i realized that it doesnt have THAT many pieces and runners. the box is very wide but also pretty flat.
lining it is also VERY easy. the channels are great! even the very thin ones are still deep enough to keep in the paint very well. the problem though is that it needs a LOT of lining... especially on the funnels >__>

so far i built Aile strike, aile strike rouge, sword/launcher strike and freedom.
My favorite is sword/launcher strike because i love the sword pack. The strike is a easy MG to build you only have to look out with the screws in the shoulders don't make them too tight.
I consider it a second generations MG kit. better then the first but not as good as a third generations like impulse, but also less complicated with decals so i prefer it even too a 3rd generation because they are so tiresom to build. Still it doesn't look outdated yet. Freedom i find less good then strike for some weird reason.

Still if you have the money, nothing beats the awsomeness of PG strike :)
If you want a MG strike they are all great. Still need to build strike Noir, been lieing in my closet for years now.

suiton629 2011-11-05 12:14

Coming from experience with 00 MG kits, how do they compare?

well, the exia is actually pretty crappy in my opinion^^ limited articulation and weak joints.
the OO raiser and the OO Qan[T] are pretty much identical (this probably also counts for the MG OO seven sword/G). and they are both fraking fantastic^^
its the same frame with a few different armor pieces slapped on :P the only differences are that the OO raiser is a tiny bit backheavy because of the O raiser (but it can still stand upright, the weight issues are actually very miniscule!) and the OOQ tilts to one side all the time because of the huge shield.
but they all come with a lot of accessories and look AWESOME! they look just like their anime counterparts. and thats the most important aspect i guess :P

compared to other MGs the exia is probably average at best. the ankles are lose so it almost cant stand on its on (its a very likely candidate to jump off your shelf at any moment), the hip joints become lose over time so they cant support the legs in aerial poses anymore and the connector for the GN blades SUCK. they pop off all the damn time.
the OO raiser and the OOQ are amazing even compared to most other MGs. their articulation is simply off the charts, they are fun to build and except for a few bad nubs they have almost no flaws.
im glad to have all three of them on my shelf, thats for sure^^

i dont own the MG GN-X though. that one is supposed to be kinda below average. but it looks awesome too!

actually if you're really detail crazy, their frames are different! the basic shape and workings of the inner frame are the same however the moulding is slightly different. :)

anyway lukas' strike is pretty good too. the IWSP comes with a crazy amount of weapons, and plus the grand slam. :)

yes you are right, its a slightly updated frame with a few improvements like slightly tighter joints. at least thats what i heard in a couple reviews :P

i also just started putting together my MG Hi-Nu. i decided to top coat all pieces afterall, like i said there really arent THAT many pieces. its not a huge build like the MG Ex-S for example. its somewhere between the Ex-S and a regular MG i guess.
i like what im seeing so far though!
gonna finish it tomorrow. right now im done with the torso and the head.

Itīs been a few years since I build the Strike Noir, so I probably remember it wrong. I build 5 Strike Gundams (Aile, 2 Launcher/Sword, IWSP and Noir), so I guess I mixed them up somehow. Still, my point stands ;)

@Appel: Where did you get the Hi-Nu from and how much did it cost you?

i got it at HLJ for 5600 yen plus 4320 yen for shipping. i also had to pay about 20€ customs taxes for it. right now they dont have it in stock anymore though, what a surprise XD
its not a cheap model... i only did it because i got paid for 1 1/2 month, otherwise i wouldnt have bought it.

StrikeFreedomV2 2011-11-05 17:26

I see. So all in all you paid only a little less then what gundam-online.de wants :( I was hoping there was a sale going on that I kind of missed. And of course itīs out of stock, as usual XD

the MG Hi-Nu is selling like sliced bread, i have NEVER seen it on sale with a big discount before XD they dont need to do that to push its sales, the moment its in stock its sold out again :P it doesnt seem to have problems like the PG strike freedom which is ALWAYS in stock at HLJ and has been on a 40% discount pretty much ever since it was released...

MakubeX2 2011-11-05 18:12

The best incarnation of the Hi-Nu is, IMO, the HCM-Pro. Which is ironically the smallest at the scale of 1/200.

If there's any reason why it shines when placed aganist the MG, it's because it does eveything the MG can while having a beef-up proportion, requires no assembly and everything is at a cheaper price tag in a smaller packaging, so no worries about massive shipping charges.

1/200? i dont even like 1/144^^ plus i prefer building models and not collecting assembled figures.

MakubeX2 2011-11-05 18:41

I'll just let people here decided which of the following is best suited for their taste :-

suiton629 2011-11-05 18:44

So does anyone suggest I get into getting the main MG's from the Seed and Seed Destiny series?

Butagami 2011-11-05 19:20

Just watched the Stargazer OVA. Strike Noir and the others look pretty awesome. Since they're pretty similar, Blu Duel and Verde Buster might possibly get a MG (going by how it looks here, they have fans). Since the GAT-X series is pretty much confirmed, I'll make my next wish for a Seed MG a bit more.... different. I nominate the Murasame. Or alternatively the Gaia (said it before, I know...) Not that I see that happening (at least not the Murasame) but still...
I kind of like the look of transformable units, so sleek. Maybe I'll buy a Delta Plus next (long-time thinking here, need to find a job first :heh:). I know, it's ankles are as weak as a teenage girl's knees at a twilight movie signing session, but still, that sexy armor...

@Nike: Well it's mostly if you like the designs, go for it. I've only built Freedom, and while it looks awesome, and I'm really happy with it, there are some minor things. It's pretty dated, has no pegs on the hand, so can't hold the rifle to save its life. And of course it has those awesome huge wings. Look stunning, heavy as shit. Therefore the torso bends backwards.
As for the others, Strike's older than freedom, so I expect the same issues (minus backheavy stuff). Maybe It'll get a 2.0 in all this Seedapalooza. SF and IJ look pretty awesome, going by Rrobbert184's review of them (IJ at least). Maybe you should wait a bit, to see what they make of the new MGs. Or are you really only into the lead suits?

@Makube: That looks pretty good. Still, like Appel, I'm more into model kits, it's nice to see it slowly come together (I've caught the MG-bug alright), gimmicks like sliding armor, just don't see that as possible in 1/200. And it would look underwhelming next to the others :P

@Appel: So going from a building/enginering perspective, which one was more fun/ better, 00 or 00Q? (Oh yeah, just posed 4 questions wrapped in one, hehe)

well, the main bodies of both of them are pretty much identical. what makes them different are the GN shield and the O raiser. and in that regard id say the O raiser was more fun to build because its actually just like a regular MG model.

I can't believe my dream this morning. Wishes of Nike actually came true, well some of them and I was like, "Ok, I'll spam it in threads and YT as well". But when I woke-up, of, it's only a damn dream, LOL!

So I thought they'll gonna be announcing new things today, but looking at it, it's actually still on November 12. The waiting time sucks
