Its around the same height as the normal Sazabi, so thats no surprise

To be exact its height compares well with the AU MGs which are slightly smaller than normal, for example MG Wing kits

i bet the high price is include the original sazabi parts + new molds

Yeah, just like Kampfer Amazing and Wing Fenice :)

Hell, Build Mk.II doesn't even get much of new mold and simply get extra runners for booster Mk.II:uhoh:

I'm gonna be a happy customer if it's true. If Bandai give us the old parts, I'll definitely replace the new legs with the old ones so that it doesn't look jarring with the bulky body-builder arms. Instead of a half-ass feminine Sazabi, I'd rather have the bulky masculine one with those nice pastel blue colors.

Now the question is: is Bandai crazy enough to make MG Miss Sazabi & MG Qubeley Papillon? :heh: If they decide to make MG Miss Sazabi, in particular, they'll have to use the recent Sazabi Ka's mold which would be pretty interesting :D.

Question for people owning the 1/100 MG Age-1 Unit 2 exclusive

Does it include all parts of the MG age-1, so also the chest piece for the age device??

Probably does, but just to check.

Things that probably lost is the original shield and few accessories (just like how Kampfer Amazing lose virtually all of it's original weaponry)

The rifle should be there, because it's the same runner as black chestpiece

No problem as long as I get the old legs. Like I said, I'm just going to replace the legs while still keeping the unique aspects of Miss Sazabi (like the head-piece, back-thrusters, and weapons).

Aurelis 2014-01-26 09:13

A pastel blue Sazabi with a modified V-fin does sound like a very nice prospect. Too bad it won't come with the long beam rifle of the MG Sazabi Ver Ka.

I for one, am glad they're releasing the Dark Matter backpack and can't wait for the K9 kit.

Speaking of Qubeley, it took me this long to realize that the Lance is held like a gun lol. I was under the impression it held it like a normal lance. Looks unnnatural like Astray Noir's sword pistol.

Can't it be both?

I swear I've seen the lineart has it held like normal lance

Skye629 2014-01-26 17:27

It can be held either way I believe, judging from linearts and older prototype pics

Aurelis 2014-01-26 18:25

Oh it's just that the hilt looks too thick to be wield by standard HG hands. Looks like the trigger handle doesn't swivel in either.

And if it's wielded like a gun, it's gonna look bad when attempting to point it outstretched as the back of the lance will be obstructed by the shoulder. I guess holding it under the pits will be the only natural looking pose if held using a gun handle.

I certainly like the fanmade one better;).

Looks like they used the MS from AGE(forgot the name) as the base for it.

Aurelis 2014-01-27 02:00

Phenex boxart just set the new gold standard for MG.

No point illustrating Banshee in there.

And that fanmade Miss Sazabi looks great! I especially like the backskirt.

ZeroXSEED 2014-01-27 02:17

Bah, Phenex just an overrated cash cow,.

That said if I have to choose between Phenex and Banshee, ugly Banshee can go away. Phenex certainly has the looks to attract collectors.

Drew inspiration from the Vagan MS designs, such as the Dorado or Zeydra

Actually Banshee is part of Phenex's backstory, they were both deployed for testing when they encountered the ReBawoo, which led to a fight obviously

Pun intended?

Providenceangle 2014-01-27 09:04

No one notice the banshee is reversed. Having the claw weapon on the other hand?

The fan inspired miss sazabi is loads better then the real one. Too bad Bandai didn't make that instead.

We do, but didn't think much of it since the Banshee on the cover doesn’t follow the OVA design anyway. Look at it holding a beam magnum instead of its signature Armed Armor BS.

Also, it's good that Bandai is still being reasonable by not making MG Phenex an online exclusive considering how minor the changes they need to do from the basic Unicorn. Imagine the price if they made it an exclusive :uhoh:.

Thats just the Banshee's config during its testing in the sidestory/prequel in which it, the Phenex, and the ReBawoo appears

Nothing major, just different weapon loadouts at different times

Knight_SV 2014-01-27 18:11

Gonna skip phenex and waiting for mg banshee norn and fa unicorn ova version

What would even be changed? FA Unicorn has pretty much all the minor adjustments the ver OVA has. Outside of markings I can't think of anything major really.

An automatic transformation system?

Just kidding

Anyone has experience with old 1/100 Victory Gundam kits? There's a sale for them and if they're good I think I'll buy a few

From what I've read,pretty good. Little on the small side.

So the MG X looks pretty damn good. Needs a little work(v fin needs to be sanded sharper and such) but yeah it looks great. I want to run leds in under the clear purple parts so they light up, along with the chest.

Um they're decent, not what you are used to, the parts are molded with multiple colors on them, yellow polycaps, very simple construction, need paint apps, etc

The scale is also off, smaller than 1/100's you see today

Skye629 2014-01-29 02:28

What HGUC OYW kits would you guys recommend? I can't decide on one to get, I know I want at least one though (please exclude RX-78-2, and the two classic Zakus though lol)

Right now Im leaning towards the HGUC Gelgoog Cannon, as it comes with all the parts for a normal and Cannon, and I think from the scans on the manual I can use most of both at once

Any other kits you guys would recommend?

They are mostly 16m suits though, but yeah I heard even for 16m they are undersized.

If you ask me, get GM Masterrace ;)

Fireminer 2014-01-29 04:09

Or a Rick Dom plus Gundam EZ-8.

I’d say go for broke and get yourself an HGUC Acguy for something different, cute, but still somehow cool. It’s a solid kit. You can have it in two versions, the normal MSG version or the scary one-armed version that appeared in The 08th MS team.

If you count The 08th MS Team as OYW then I also recommend HG Gouf Flight Type. A pretty good and cool-looking kit even though it’s not from HGUC line. Oh, and it’s cheap too.

Still, HGUC Mass-Produced Gelgoog/Gelgoog Cannon is one of the best choices if I have say so myself.

For some reason I never really liked the Rick Dom's, always preferred the Dom line of suits speeding around on the ground and being awesome

Got the EZ-8 :D, Splendid kit, I display it without the parachute pack though, I don't like the crappy wire/cable attachment feature with stickers

Perhaps Ill post a pic once I find time to set up a image/photobucket/imgur account and take some pictures.........

I totally forgot about the Acguy :0, I need to get me one of those

I do count 08th MS Team, as it's one of my favorite OVA's ever, and yes, I got the HG Gouf Flight Type :D, its on my backlog



The main reason I asked you guys for OYW recommendations is that I wanted a OYW kit from the original TV series. just for the sake of it aside from the poster image RX-78-2 and the Zaku's

ZeroXSEED 2014-01-29 22:32

Well, GM, like Zaku is basic of the basic, there's so many variant to choose that sometimes all that's left the same is GM head

That said, Gelgoog Jaeger is my favorite in Gelgoog lineage.

Skye629 2014-01-31 03:00

CLASSIC

This boxart wins simply due to how simple and iconic it is, any Gundam fan can look at it and automatically know what kit they are looking at

Yay! Screenshot from the OP title~.
Yup. It certainly wins.

Blazer-X 2014-01-31 04:17

Aside from: "Why couldn't they waited for this before releasing HG Perfect Strike!?" Its quite nice.

Still, I personally prefer the MG version (If only because its bigger to play with). Although truthfully, I am more interested in his recently released cousin from Build Fighters.

NeutralZero 2014-01-31 09:15

Now that's a plamo we're going to get for sure...
too bad they didn't go for the complete pack of the strike...

Aurelis 2014-02-02 19:56

I shouldn't be doing this but I really wish this leads to the other GAT series since I prefer the other units over Strike by now. I like my SEED RDs but it feels plain without the panel lines and I'm not gonna start panel lining a figure either.

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
Just wondering, any fans of Thunderbolt kits here? I just got the GM one and I'm rather surprised by the lean box. It looks like a fun build over the Zaku and Gundam ones. I'm just curious as to how the insulated limbs design would feel like.
