How did you get that kind of black effect on the Gyan's main body? It has a really nice texture on the colour.

Well because its technically not as it appears in the series, Hajime Katoki's designs are usually extremely detailed and complicated so they often get simplified by another designer. Best example being Gundam Wing Ver. Ka vs Gundam Wing MS. Theres quite alot of subtle differences if you compare them.

That's not really a good example since the Gundam Wing MS from the series was designed by Kunio Okawara not Katoki. The only reason I can think of for using KA in the title is that the manga's Crossbone was somewhat more cartoonish in appearance and less mechanical. That's only an opinion of course.

Not just subtle differences - big differences. The wing design, the chest design, the design of the Buster Gun ...
The Wing ver Ka is pretty much the WZC with transformation capability, a shield and two big wings instead of angel wings.

In any case, I am wondering why the Crossbone X1 doesn't come with the Peacock Smasher. You can certainly slap on the chest skull and crossbones to make it into Skull Heart, but where are the weapons?

Then a good reason is: the manga artists can't seem to follow Katoki's style >.> . This usually happens in mangas about Gundams.

If Bandai includes all of the weapons from the X-3 FIX, they'll need to slap another 1000 yen on the price tag of the X-1 MG.

Are you willing to folk out another 1000 yen just for the accessories ? Bandai thinks not. Besides they do not want the MG to draw all the attention from their FIX.

Katoki designed the first versions of Gundam Wing's Gundams, Okawara's Gundams were re-designs of Katoki's originals.

the muramasa blaster and peacock smasher are most definitely recolor material.

Are you sure? Hajime Katoki did design all the Gundams for Endless Waltz, but as for the TV series Im sure Okawara was the original designer whilst Katoki had done some re-designs afterwards.
:confused:

SNT1 2006-09-09 14:00

yeah. Katoki' original gundam ver ka's were just that---original designs. They had to okawarize it for some reason.

Masking tape. Just sprayed on one color, masked, then sprayed on the other colors. Pretty simple. :)

Really? Do you have some kind of source for this? I find this odd because we saw Okawara's Wing Gundam before the series even aired (final episode of G Gundam I believe) and websites like MAHQ say that the version Ka were designed later.

- Show me the site/article where it says this. Until then, I'll go with Okawara being the first designer for Wing TV series. When a hobby magazine says "Original Design", they mean the artist made an original design for something, NOT that the artist was the original designer of the mecha or whatever.

There are designs that were done by Katoki for the Wing TV series, but AFAIK (and I could be wrong) they were limited to the Leo and other mass-produced MS.

Pah. Genesic GaoGaiGar is Okawara's greatest work. Screw his Gundams. Woe betide anyone who says otherwise.

QFT.

Though the Genesic/GaoFighGar rejects were also extremely good.

The promo pix from Bandai says nothing about Stand. So no Stand.

But you can always use back the one that was given away with the Legend.

But don't forget about the MG Strike IWSP that's going to release around the same time.
