@loon1688
Your AGE-2 Normal rocks! Nice pose :D.

Someone from Gundam Wing – Frozen Teardrop novel thread posted a pic of Epyon White a while ago. Is it already posted here?
As you can see, beside the change in color, the other distinct feature is that now Epyon White has a “Dragon Hang/Fang”. What I don’t like is that the dragon-fang is not a new design at all. They just decide to put Epyon’s foot on its hand :twitch:! God-damn-it, can’t they come up with something new :eyebrow:? More importantly, will Bandai make this into MG since it’s pretty much identical with Epyon ver. Ka? Other Gundams from the novel already get MG treatment, will they treat this Epyon White the same?

And speaking of Epyon, my own Epyon has arrived some time ago ^^. I already finished assembling it even though just about 90%. It’s snapfit + decals only (for now). I haven’t clean the nubs nor done any panel-lining.
Spoiler for Size & numbers:
It’s an amazing kit. It has its problems but I still love it very much. I’ve always wanted to have Epyon kit the first time I saw it on TV ^^. I guess I’m gonna show more (the MA mode, for example) once I really finish it. If Bandai really going to make the “real” Epyon (aka. TV ver.) MG, I just hope they improve the whip by making it lighter than what we have now.

Is the Banshee painted or only the horn and chest parts?

I've pointed out this last June. It just a matter of time for an inevitable minor modification of the MG Epyon to be out.

Remember, Bandai will never gave us a kit in MG format without taking in thoughts for it to be at reused and released at least twice.

Ah, thanx. I guess I missed your post since I joined here in July. :p And I also missed all that “Wu-Fei made the Epyon White” thing. Now I know where the dragon fang comes from. :D Thanx again for the info.

About the Epyon’s heat rod: you can easily avoid breaking it if you move the polycaps in each bit carefully/gently along with the bits, not just move the bits. ;)

New MG Age-1 FAIL:

But seriously, if they make an MG of this, I'll loose big faith in Bandai.

I don't know about the MG, but the HG version already has the needed flat white piece for this version.

And different stickers for the eyes are so easy to make... That'll be one of the laziest reuse of a mold ever.

EDIT: Anyway, with the Khronos' debut this episode... Still no news of a HG Khronos?

the age 1 flat will come with an "Age Condenser" in the chest! LOL

HG Age-2 Double Bullet

Is it just me or do you also get the 00 Raiser kind of feeling with the Age-2 (Normal and Double Bullet)...?


EDIT

yup, that's what i felt since we had that teaser a long time before the series started.. and now with the double bullet asemu will be able to dual-wield beam sabers and beam rifles, lol. too bad it looks like there won't be a third form or we can see asemu fighting with 6 weapons at once. :p

Appel 2012-03-12 13:51

gold markers do tend to look really nice^^
although i prefer clear yellow paint on a gold base! i really like that effect.

Wait what? :twitch:
When was it confirmed that the Age-2 Normal and Age-2 Double Bullet would be it?

LOL Oh and it's good to see that I'm not the only one that thought the designs were very similar to the 00 series. Maybe Bandai is hinting out like reairing the 00 series on TV again or something...rofl...or maybe they have some secret plans to make my favorite kit that I've been wanting Bandai to make...:p

For kits that have plating on them, I think it's best to sand it off, prime the plastic, get a chrome silver paint on it (a thin layer or 2) and then a thin layer of whatever color you need...silver, gold, copper, etc.

It's not confirmed, but all signs indicate that the AGE-2 only has one alternate form--before AGE aired, we were shown the AGE-1 Normal and its two alternate forms, and those alternate forms all appeared in the OP. Before Generation 2 began, we were shown the AGE-2 Normal and the one alternate form--and in the second OP, only one alternate form appears. Combined with the delayed timeframe in which the AGE-2 is fielded in the show...

It looks as if the only wear parts for the AGE-2 we'll be seeing is the Double Bullet. There's not enough time to showcase two Wear Part sets anyway.

So~

Age-1 ==> 2 additional wears
Age-2 ==> 1 additional wear
Age-3 ==> 1 additional wear

Am I correct?

Looks like then we won't need to be buying as many Age series MG kits. =P
