Looking at those pics, I find Duel to be the best MG design in months. Bravo Bandai. When you touch your lovechild, you really can do wonders. Let the haters grind their teeth, as the new king of MG lines arrived...! at least until the first season 00 mechas come to the table ;D Dynames would totally mess up the world with its perfect design. Add proper green, not the cartoonish one like in No Grades and HGs and we have a total all-time winner :]

human-like posability is all you really need. and the duel seems to nail that pretty well!

Some people prefer the option and freedom to be there rather than not.

I take it you really love Dynames' huge ass-boosters then? :D

suiton629 2012-02-19 10:04

So it looks like I may be getting the MG AGE-1 Normal (even w/ the knee problem)... =P

Maybe the Age series will become my next favorite series?? HM....lol

Nobody like restrictions enforced on them, plain and simple. In fact, Hacchaka hopes that the waist articulation to be improved on the MG Buster. Just so he can swing the combine cannons however and wherever he wants them.

your body is restricted though, too^^ i dont see you spinning your waist 360 XD
i think reasonable restrictions are a good thing because they make poses more realistic.

More to the point the Gundams in the shows don't rotate the full 360 do they?
So in a way Duel is very realistic in this regard.
If it turns far enough then it's all good and by the looks of it it does which is fine with me.
Plenty of other models to use for a pose with the torso turned 180 and even then if one wanted to use the duel that their porblem really, I mean who'd want to do some stupid pose with a 180 turned torso anyway, maybe for fun for like 2 mins after that it's back to kick ass pose.

It's as it's always been, people complaining for the sake of complaining(I know I do at times)

Just like that AGE-1 knee thingy, omg please, hardly a major point.
I'm more concerned about the (pretty cool)thumb joint than colour of knee plate.
How well does that thumb joint hold up?
How far does it bend back, could I do a thumbs up pose?!

the thumb is probably the same as the 2.0 jointed fingers. and on my MG sinanju they are holding up pretty nicely^^
what im curious about is the articulation of the entire frame. according to someone on gundam eclipse who actually works for bluefin the new frames are going to be more functional and streamlined in their construction but have more mechanical details so that you can actually display the frame in a better fashion.
im really curious to see reviews after this kit is released because of that new frame!

And even if someone wanted to do a 180 degree pose on the Duel for some reason, they can just remove the top half from the waist, turn it, then stick it back.

The 140 degrees waist range on the Duel is just about right for me. Heck, I'll even forgo full leg splits or whatnot on my Gundam models for greater amour details.

HasuMasu 2012-02-20 04:57

On the topic of waist joints, I find RG Freedom likes to separate at the waist every now and then. :heh:

Maybe I just didn't put the upper body on the right way...

Still solid on mine, but I was extra careful in posing the Freedom considering their paperthin parts. Maybe they'll redesign it for RG Gundam Mk. II; it's a bigger mobile suit.

Appel 2012-02-21 07:30

dang it, they picked up my duel from the customs office this morning instead of yesterday in the evening so it missed todays delivery truck XD oh well, at least that means that i WILL get it tomorrow. and i still have a day off tomorrow so i still have enough time to build it.
i hate waiting for packages, i always turn into a 10 year old little boy when im waiting for one because im so impatient^^
this also gives me more time to prepare since i plan to actually do a video review of it (mainly because i want to avoid studying but thats besides the point...)! i just want to give that a try for once :P and when i get it tomorrow id be the first to have a video about the model itself up on youtube ;D

i could imagine that the freedom would be rather fragile with that many details at such a small scale. but the quality of bandais PS and how they mold it should be enough to hold it together^^
im really curious about how the MK-II will turn out though. i wont buy it myself but im really curious how well it will stack up to the amazing MG MK-II 2.0! that thing still is one of the best models i have ever built!

duotiga 2012-02-21 09:21

looks like MG Age-1 is having swivel waist for the legs

http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2012/0...review-by.html

will it be loose after wear n tear?

So the knee issue isn't that bad...

I think it's similar to MG Exia's. Personally, I don't it'll become loose that easily. Firstly, you don't often use that joint. Lastly, my Exia's still solid. Actually, it's very stiff and how I wish it'll be easier to move it while maintaining its sturdiness.

i have check is not similar to exia/00 raiser/00 qan[t]
This is an entire new waist joint for the legs

Appel 2012-02-21 10:15

you are a little late to the party here, we found that out before you posted your initial complaint about this ;D

the waist does look interesting though. in my experience these joints dont get loose that easily so i think it will be the same here.
i am SO curious as to how well the AGE-1s frame will work^^

Aside from the new tubing material, maybe tiny screws for support. After all they'll probably prepare this for the inevitable RG G-Defenser.

@duotiga - Must be a better sturdier design since Bandai plans to use the same swivel waist for the Titus and Spallow.

Where was it confirmed that they would use the exact same frame as the MG Age-1 Normal for Titus and Sparrow?

the torso and waist will probably be identical but the arms and legs might get a different frame. the way the limbs are connected to the body (which is pretty much exactly like it was done in the show) makes that possible.

They probably designed the mecha like that so they could engineer GunPla kits cost effectively..

i think thats the entire idea behind AGE^^ just because of the whole generations thing we have three lead gundams. the AGE-1 has 3 different configurations, the AGE-2 and 3 seem to have two configurations each. thats at least seven variations for the lead gundams alone! XD and in theory they only have to make three seperate kits, plus they made the frames really simple to save even more money on them.
then we also have the huge amount of HG kits for each generation.
i think its because they are working together with level-5 on gundam AGE so they both want to have their share of the profit which means they have to make more kits to begin with :P
in my opinion it hasnt been this obvious with previous shows in the franchise that the whole anime is nothing but a huge commercial for the toys^^

suiton629 2012-02-21 12:24

I hope that we get the Genoace Woolf Custom, G-Exes, and G-Bouncer in MG as well.

yeah, id buy a G-EXES^^ gundam AGE does have a lot of great designs! thats why im waiting until all MGs are released. i want some of them but definitely not all of them.

suiton629 2012-02-21 13:34

Well from the Age, I want...

MG Age-1 Normal
MG Age-1 Titus
MG Age-1 Sparrow
MG Genoace Woolf Custom
MG G-Exes

MG Age-2 Normal
MG Age-2 Double Bullet
MG G-Bouncer

MG Age-3 Normal
MG Age-3 _______ (whatever it'll be called)
MG G-__________ (whatever it'll be called)

i dont really know what version of the AGE-1 i want... i dont like the titus so thats out of the question. i might go with the sparrow only because i like the sleek design.
but as i said, i dont know which models i will get yet, i will wait until they are all released or at least all announced^^

I figure that if you're going to get 1, you might as well get them all. I mean I think it's going to be awesome to display all the Age-1, Age-2, and Age-3 Master Grade kits.

=)

Though I really wish that they would get you know what released...

They're similar on how they work, but the joint itself is different. For that, we actually have to wait until someone reviews it. Though I'm hopeful that it'll be what I wanted.

Sooner or later we'll get reviews from Dalong, Prime92, StryderPrime, Vegeta8259, etc. =)

I personally prefer rrobbert's, though I know that he's not already the first one to get newer kits anymore.

Yeah, me too. Even though I've watched rrobbert's, I still watch vegeta's and Prime92's. But recently, Prime92's channel is becoming more of a "look at my custom painted gunpla" instead of an actual review.

I watch stryderprime's channel, even though he is not a reviewer, just because of his builds. Weird thing is, I don't plan on buying the kits he's building, yet, I watch those XD

Rrobbert's channel, is thus far, the greatest review channel I've seen in YT. There are also some small timers, but rrobbert separates his reviews according to my liking.

HasuMasu 2012-02-22 04:58

The peg for RG Freedom's beam-sabre doesn't want to fit in the hand's hole.

Maybe it's because they're 1/100? :heh:

building the MG duel right now^^ the gundam itself is done, im busy with the assault shroud right now.
so far its a REALLY great model! simple construction but overall fun to put together. it has what feels like a million bad nubs though...
