Just to make it clear: MG ABF 2nd Revise is different from 1/100 ABF 2nd L.
The design of MG ARF Kai is similar to MG ABF 2nd Revise while the 1/100 ABF 2nd L is different from MG ARF Kai's design.
You can check dalong.net for more comparison. I hope this help ^_^.

I meant if MG blue and MG red have similarity so that I can use the badass launcher that it's designed for blue. I'll take your word for it since you have the MG blue AND red. I know the difference between regular 1/100 and MG version. I just don't have a clue about its structure since I assumed that they're similar at most. I've read that the MG launcher fits on MG ABG.

I thought that the launcher would fit on my MG red. Glad that you told me the difference. Unless I read it wrong. I was this *close* to buy the launcher.

Lol

Ah, now I get it :twitch:. So you want to buy Lohengrin Launcher for the MG ABF, right? I thought it was the one for the 1/100 ABF. In that case, thereís a chance that it will also fit the MG ARF too since they both share the same frame. Sorry, I was mistaken :(.

Still, if you want to buy that conversion kit, you must be very good in painting to make it look good. So, go ahead and buy that Lohengrin Launcher if youíre ready to work with it ;).

Btw, itís this one, right?
Once again, I'm sorry for my mistake. That's coz there's a lot of convertion kit out there :p.

Ikaoru 2012-06-10 13:53

Yeah, that's the one that I'm talking about. I pray that it's painted.

It's not painted? Lol

I thought its already painted since I saw some pics posted online (can't remember which one but it's like -$15). That sucks.

I could paint but I don't have the luxury for time since I'm busy w studying for my boards exam until October.

Yeah. I don't have the blue but I'm planning to use it on red.

no, its not painted. it also needs glue.
im also not sure whether its compatible to the red frame or not.

It’s also a little odd that they make the Lohengrin Launcher conversion kit for ABF 2nd Revise. IIRC, in the manga, Blue Frame use the Lohengrin when it was still in 2nd L form, not 2nd Revise.

Well lets be honest, if your gonna get that launcher you most certainly don't want it on your NG 1/100 instead of a more awesome MG now are you.

BTW question, is Bandai still doing new PGs?
I haven't heard anything about new ones or at least can't remember hearing of anything new.
Friend asked me when I'd get my first PG made as a joke as I take my sweet ass time building stuff but got me thinking on what PG I'd liked to get as I would like one one day altho those £100 price tags really, really make it hard to think of ever getting one>_<
Thinking about it I could probably only see me getting the Red Frame, only worth getting even if I get in MG as well.
However there would be one model I'd get without a doubt in PG form and that would be a PG Sinanju.

That's correct. But that will also makes it "unofficial" like other customized kits out there ;).

I think Bandai will still do PGs for the exceptionally popular MSs. But, it's hard to predict which suit they'll make into PGs. As we know, PGs not only reserved for Gundams from the main series. Astray is a solid proof of that. So, popularity/request is a major (if not the only) factor I guess. If there's enough people that request Sinanju to be PGed, Bandai might actually grant it. That and Unicorn with a MUCH better articulation :D.

They can recolor red frame in Blue frame :), that would make me very happy and bandai will get more of my money :D. Or a Gold frame amatu variant or a green frame ;) ;) or a mirage frame ;)

or maybe a nice IWSP pack for one of my PG strikes :D.

Strike freedom was a big miss PG wise, it just didn't look nice, it looked bulky.

They can do a 00 suit like Astraea or Exia

Not a fan of unicorn, if something from UC they can release a PG sazabi as it needs a good model, the MG's is way to outdated.

Really, you're an archer? Wow, how does shooting with a bow feels? Is it heavy or easy? Have you compete in some kind of tournaments?

Yup! I take it as a sport in school, we do have some tournaments. You'll need some strength and stamina to be able to pull and hold a bow! It's a fun sport, you should definitely try it. Anyway, really awesome to see a Gundam with a bow - it's a relatively old kit, I'll try looking around for it when I have the time! I love huge ass weapons, and the fact that it's a bow makes it even more awesome.

they dont release PGs very regularly. often there are a couple of years brtween two releases.

Great work on this MG.

What kind of cloth is that? Seems to have a nice flowing, weathered effect that contrast the pristine 1/100.

all is left is the colourful yellow stand to make it flyyyyy....

Im an archer tooo!

Kne thing preventing me from getting the red frame is the lack of parts for the old design though and no beam saber and rifle?!?!?!?!

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-06-11 10:53

@casval cehack
The funny thing is, I don’t know what kind of garment it’s called. It feels soft and rough at the same time. It’s light and can be arranged easily. I don’t know whether it’s similar to MG Crossbone KA robe or not. I guess you’ll have to experience it yourself to know for sure.

@duotiga
Finally! That looks nice. The color scheme doesn’t hurt my eyes as much as normal Destiny. Since I don’t have any MG Destiny yet, I might go with this version (but I kinda want the Wing Effect parts too :p:eyespin:).

Damn, I’m kinda jealous. I really want to try shooting with those bows even once. Did you practice(d) archery in your school like bio9205 too? That’s a fine school. Here, we only have the ordinary sports like athletics, tennis, the big-2 (soccer & basketball), volley, badminton, swimming, etc.

Well, MG ARF Kai is supposed to be the “Kai” version (hence the name). So yeah, the Kai version doesn’t use regular beam saber & rifle, so I think it’s cool not to include that. Bandai already decided (so far) that Normal Red Frame already has enough choices from NG 1/144, HG 1/144, HG 1/100, and PG. Personally, for normal RF (with just rifle, shield & beam sabers), I'm fine with the 1/100 ;), while for the "samurai" version (with Gerbera Straight katana), I'll get the PG someday :p.

Providenceangle 2012-06-11 11:49

Man the more I see the Rezel Defenser... The more I want it. It looks way better then the delta plus. Of course I always thought the rezel was cooler. Why did I buy the MG DP again? lol

Because this one is not available in MG yet ?

i guess i can truly say that i liked the defenser unit B before it was cool. :cool:

Providenceangle 2012-06-11 18:28

It's not that it's animated. I just have a thing for mono eye/ glass visor. Just looks cooler. Maybe it's the whole metroid influence. Who knows.

The ARF Kai does come with the beam effect parts for the Arrow Form of its Tactical Arms, am I right? Can't seem to find this kit in local departmental stores, I need to do some snooping in hobby shops.

Yes, and not only one, but TWO :D (in case you messed-up with the first one).

Yup, go to online shops for cheap price. That's where I got mine ;).

I've been using mine as sabers for Zeydra :heh:

Unfortunately I don't have a credit card! I'll ask my parents, and see what they can do. :D By the way, does it come with the red stand you use in your pictures? I remember seeing the kit coming with screws, are they for the stand?

Probably a type of polyester. Perfect for other MG cloaked suits, like Exia Repair.

Yeah, it's a shame that Exia Repair use stiff rubber as its cloak. It would be a lot better if they use the same material as Sandrock Kai's cloak. It would be cheaper too I believe.

that really is pretty cool! i dunno, its simple and yet very effective. it also doesnt look too busy in my opinion.

also, its funny how something as simple as putting it on an action base and adding a beam effect part to the rifle just turned my MG ReZEL into one of my biggest and most impressive looking kits^^ if you do have the ReZEL i think you should try it, it looks great!
i used a darker UC beam effect though and not one of those new very light pink ones to make the effect more vibrant.

Yeah, Junichi Akutsu & Kunio Okawara is a great combination in SEED. Together, they made the GATX series. Their individual designs are also impressive. Kunio Okawara designed the Trio Gundams (Raider, Calamity, Forbidden) and Duo Gundams (Freedom & Justice) while Junichi Akutsu designed the Astray series and the variants. But Kanetake Ebikawa (Exia & co) and Naohiro Washioís designs (Throne Gundams) from 00 are also quite interesting. You donít even have to ask about Katoki Hajime. Iím a fan of his Wing Gundam & co redesigns, but also love the originals by Okawara.
