It would be cool to see the MG Strike Freedom, and the Freedom and Infinite Justice attach to it as well but it would be pretty big kit. Cross my fingers hope they make it. :)

It's not a matter of Bandai wanting to release one, it's whether how much people are willing to foot out for a huge kit like that and if there's enough demand for it in the market in order for Bandai to make a decent profit.

I did try some highlighters but the results are mixed,at least based on the highlighters I can find.

So I guess I'll just have to try using a normal brush with really light colours and some thinner and it should in theory;stay luminous right?

I heard after the final that it was suppose to be released in June,not sure whether how real that was or it's status now.



Personally,I can't wait for Hilling's Garazzo and Anew's Gadess[I know there's no word on that yet],want to have that GNZ team ready.Not sure how much a Hilling Gadessa will excite me but I do like the Launcher design,will see how it goes.

Also trying to colour HG 00's GN-Sword II Targeting Sensor light blue,which I guess is similar to the beam saber predicament.

Sorry,if this has been answered before or recently,haven't skimmed through the pages yet.

Clear paints. Many model paint brands (like Tamiya) offer colors in clear, which is transparent, thus allowing you to paint clear parts without losing transparency. I myself use Tamiya Clear Enamel paints for my models, although acrylic works fine as well.

Nice LEDS!

I'm a little conflicted on the colour scheme though. Nevertheless, great job. ;)

Well it's either they gamble on it or take a survey, But lets say they take the figures from the 1/144 scale they made and see how many sold. If the margin was a good figure i can see a possibility. Whether people would want such a huge kit, well look at PG kits they aren't exactly shelf size but people do buy them, Meteor would be something like the size maybe a bit bigger in length. Price i can see somewhere in the $200's but most bigger kits like the PG's are in or around that range. (currency is US/Canadian i am taking from)

Being that you can put other MG kits, your adding to a kit that you already have or will go out and buy the other MG kits cause of this bigger unit that you can attach to. I can see milking the money on this but I'm just assuming.

Robot Damashii Exia & Crossbone X-2 Kai New Images
 
http://i39.tinypic.com/nqsf1i.jpg
Robot Damashii Exia - early August release, 2,940 Yen (inclusive of tax)

http://i41.tinypic.com/2wpkysn.jpg
Robot Damashii Crossbone X-2 Kai - late July release, 3,990 Yen (inclusive of tax)

It's explicitly mentioned in the text that this is the second prototype of the actual release, so there might be some changes to be made to it before the actual release.

Also, regarding Tamashii Web Shop limited conversion pack for Exia R2. Apparently there will be a second round of pre-order for this item, after Robot Damashii is out in August. The delivery date for that would be some time in Winter.

Images from Robot Damashii Diary.

I wonder what the GFF Strike will look like. Heard they made some major design changes... but still within the original overall looks from the series, I suppose.

G.F.F. stands for Gundam Fix Figuration, which is a line of figures like the Hcm-pro/Robot Damashii/Revoltech lines.

GFF is the high quality toy line if compared to others that he mentioned. It's made for detail rather than playability like the other three lines (sometimes at the cost of posability). It's usually more for the decal-oriented peeps though since the GFFs can be a bit verbose :)

I think it would have been cooler to make the Raiser Sword much much bigger for the kit. Like...12 inches would have been badass.

GrahamAker 2009-05-09 02:58

yup that would have looked good and would have increased the cost

Amber.Dawn 2009-05-09 03:43

I wanted a shield on that sword =(
