Full Saber is a limited release with a Hobby Japan mag, and its only the extra add on parts to the HG 00Q and If u find it at liek a local store that sells jap mags get it on sight because it was released not too long ago, if not u might get lucky on ebay.


On another not i would really like them to just make the RG Aile Strike the whole Striker System package... i should have taken care of my mg, its all loose n im not bothered to re-purchase and i have a custom in mind but would like to make it at a much smaller scale

Come to think of it, would it be better to wait for RG Strike with Sword/Launcher packs or the Strike Rough IWSP pack or even the vanilla Strike with the IWSP pack ?

Hell, with a bit of minor change, we can even get the sexier RG Strike Noir.

i like your thinking, i think Strike Rouge might be made just to milk it for what its worth though...

JC... 2011-01-24 12:26

It'd suck if they began to milk the strikes, make some more UC suits and then move on to different series. HG is for milking.

justavisitor 2011-01-24 13:26

eventually they will milk this new RG series...XD...this is bandai after all XD

But right now it seems like they try to make RG stand so they will only choose those extremely popular MS...will the next one be nu gundam for RG ?? :D

but this way they can milk it AND sell it at like twice the price! we all know bandai, they cant pass up something like that when the real grade series is selling well^^

I don't think they'll follow the "main suit+ main antagonist suit" formula, they're probably more about choosing the most popular suits. So maybe for the next ones we'll have wing, freedom or exia. Also, i think transformable suits will be hard to make because of the small moving parts.

On a different note: Yay my Dynames just came in 2 days ahead of scedule!!

Yeah I agree, I seriously doubt Aegis will be the next RG. Strike was probably chosen because of its popularity. The amount of variations and releases it has is second only to the RX-78.

And on that topic, RG Strike looks absolutely amazing. It's like a miniature PG.. wow.

Hobby Japan, actually if u can find the issue, it comes straight with it.

Who let the Bats outta Hell ?

Aside from the background. It's pretty much the standard weapon-to-the-fore pose we have seen before.

Appel 2011-01-27 08:36

god damnit duo, get the scythe out of the way i cant see the name of the kit! XD

Previous examples as stated

It's the background that makes this illustration exceptional.

DarkWarrior 2011-01-27 17:24

Bats.. bats everywhere! :eyespin:

Yeah the pose is pretty standard, but damn is the background nice. Only a month away now till release.. :D

MakubeX2 2011-01-27 17:47

Now.....

Feathers for Wing Zero. Bats for Deathscythe Hell. What remains for Nataku, Sandrock and Heavyarms ?

Well, Nataku is a dragon...

Sandrock and Heavyarms? I nominate a camel and an armadillo :heh:

GN0010 Nosferatu 2011-01-27 19:56

I'm not gonna lie, the addition of the bats is really horrid.

Critias 2011-01-27 19:58

Me...want...NAO

And I'm gonna guess a fiery background for Nataku.
The others...:confused:

Sworra 2011-01-27 20:26

I'd say a shower of bullet casings or piles of them around Heavy arms, and Nataku hmm.. I would have to go with Critias with a fiery back ground but with streams of fire coming everywhere.. Sandrock, put him in a sandstorm with a faint silhouette and his eyes glowing through the sand. lol.. Cheers

Hey guys, I had a quick question: Is it better to apply decals/stickers before or after topcoat? Thanks.

I usually do it before. The topcoat keeps them sealed in.

Appel 2011-01-29 04:55

got my MG sword impulse this week!^^
i finished the main boddy now and i will build the weapons and the shield today.
its a great kit! thanks for recommending it guys!

So topcoat helps with stickers too?

But they won't add anything to the stickers themselves? Still, might be worth it.

Well it also helps cover up the stickers' edges, so they end up looking more like decals.

That sounds interesting. I've found a local shop that sells tamiya paint-stuff, so when it's less cold outside, I'll buy some and try it out.

does anyone else have the problem with sword impulse that he cant hold ANY of his weapons? >:O on the swords the slots for the peg on the hands are too wide, the beam boomerangs dont have slots at all and the beam rifle doesnt want to stay in place as well...

My MG Sword Impulse can hold its weapon well enough. For me, i use the articulated hands to hold the beam boomerang & it work just fine. While the beam rifle can be hold either by 2 articulated hands or the other 2 traditional molded hand. Its just a matter to get the right pose & distribute the sword weight.Hope it helps...:D

Sorry mobile phone pics...XD


Spoiler for i used the molded hand for the sword & the articulated hand for the beam boomerang...:

i tried both the articulated manipulators and the molded ones but it just wont work... oh well, i just have him standing on my shelf now, fully equipped with only the rifle in the right hand. still looks pretty nice! and i threw a few decals and seals on it to support the look, usually i dont bother doing that :P

I see...well be extra careful with those hands. Agree,the red color scheme & the big sword made it look pretty nice indeed. I like the FAITH decal,it make the kit look great.Too bad i lost it...anyway the kit look great with all of its decal.:D

Akyra 2011-02-01 08:04

Wonder what differences are there between this new MG Wing and the old ver ka.

Anyone know?

yeah, i noticed that i need to be careful with them...
i got the sword impulse mainly because of its design^^ i HATE shinn but his suit is pretty badass... and when you combine both swords its actually longer than my PG astrays gerbera straight! O_O
i chose to put the ZAFT decal on its shoulder though^^ i like that logo more

as far as i have heard its not just a re-release of the old wing ver.ka with better colors but they completely revampted the kit! i cant find a source to confirm that though...

From the ad that was posted before along with a potential Nataku art:
MG Wing will have "Runner color is changed along to new settings", "new marking designed by Katoki Hajime", and new parts to pose Wing on an Action Base (both in MS mode and Bird mode)

Not quite an overhaul but a solid deal for those who don't have the Ver. Ka yet.
