All I care about from Shizuoka is the Doven Wolf! Looks great :D

Anyway, on my HGUC Sazabi - sanded down the ball joint and added a layer of school glue and grey paint. It'll hold the leg, but I can't move it without the entire leg dropping off. I guess I'll have to settle for that compromise :/

No, only the weapons and core fighter share molds with the 2.0 and even at that the weapon molds are modified to work with the new manipulators.
Those parts were all near perfect so there was not much point in re-designing them.

The kit itself however is 100% new. New inner frame and an even more complex armour separation than the RG kit

Is that it in terms of MG's shown at this year's Shizuoka Hobby Show? If so, then they failed hard.

Not fail at all

3.0 is a big deal, since we are going to be getting the normal follow ups to the Gundam after its release at some point

Geara DOGA is great news as it will hopefully lead to the much wanted MG Jegans and Zulus later on

Not saying it's a fail for having those kits, it's just how few kits were shown. I was expecting more than 4 since really the MG Age-2 Double Bullet and MG Aile Strike RM Ver. were announced a while ago.

Well the Gundam 3.0 practically announced two more kits, a Green and Red Zaku

And arent we getting the AGE-3 and FX later on?

It annouces absolutely nothing. Plus i don't see the reason to, the zaku 2.0 are technically superb up to date kits, availabe in 10 variants.

if you will be getting anything from the origional new it will be a Dom 2.0 or maybe a gouf custom 2.0

Bandai is trying very hard to keep the old gundam alive, but it's slowly diying in favor of newer stuff. That is unfortunately the way of life.

Now where is my freedom 2.0 :D

How is old gundam dying? I still see many people buying the OYW and 2.0 ofthe RX-78. If it were truly dying then Bandai would not make a new kit for it as demand wouldn't be good enough.

I'll get banned if I say something else XD

Anyway, that Legillis-R's violet seems lighter than it's supposed to be.

^ Well of course. After MG AGE-2 Normal, MG AGE-2 Special Forces is really easy to make to begin with. So, I don't think this online exclusive surprises anyone. It's easy money for Bandai, so it's just a matter of time and mood. If Bandai is in the mood to make MG AGE-2 SF, it will happen easily. Just like what happens now. Unlike MG Justice that will require them to work from scratch.

Now we might also get the MG Age-1 Unit 2 Assault Jacket and MG Age-1 Full Gransa.

Age 1 unit 2 IS the assault jacket. Bandai are just not going to bother making the actual jacket parts as its a MSV design and they really only sell for very popular series. Age was the worst ranked series on TV ever.

If it is the Assault Jacket, why isn't the Assault Jacket armor pieces being shown? :confused:

Age might be the "worst ranked series on TV ever", but it sure as hell is getting a lot of releases. =P

And that's thanks to how the mecha were designs; making it very very likely to release color variations and variations in the wears...

And if this Age-1 Unit 2 is the Assault Jacket variant and this Age-1 Unit 2 MG is confirmed, then I guess the Assault Jacket pieces will be included. =D

suiton629 2013-05-19 08:53



Was only a matter of time..

Did you not read what I said?!
Bandai will not bother making the Assault Jacket parts!!!

The Age 1 unit 2 was a second unit created for Largan, it would LATER be used as one of the assault jacket test units.


The only reason Age is still getting kits is because the anime studio is still working Age related stuff. Age kits will start to dry up a few months after MOE is released.

Happy now u can get that AGE-2 SF?

No to the assault jacket, its way to under the radar and there is no point to releasing it, I can only see it getting a release if they sneak it into MOE and it is received well

Gransa is a maybe, most likely depending on how well the AGE-3 and FX sells

Why don't you just ignore him. Problem solved. I do the same thing with bandai online exclusives. I ignore them and just buy what I like.

Now on topic. I really like the new stuff coming out. It seems to hit me right in my wallet... MG Jesta, RG GP01, MG geara doga... Maybe I should stop gunpla and save money, to do something useful with my money.... Ah screw it! More gunpla!! lol

firefox 2013-05-20 02:35

Anybody else frustrated about the number of online exclusives bandai is launching?

It's a freaking nightmare for non- japan based builders, not to mention the extra cost for my wallet.

So far the only online exclusive that I might want to have is the Crossbone. But that is just another variation of an existing kit so no real complaints there.
Once they start releasing regular models as exclusives and not just variations, then I'm gonna be pissed as well.
But so far we really did just get variations, extra equipment and effect parts.
