AGE is dog shit on a stick, but Woolf was easily the best thing that show has, not to mention his suits are totally Gundam versions of Prime Mode Ultra Magnus, you can't hate on that.

I've seen 14 episodes of AGE so far (sorry, going very slow). The show is not perfect, i agree it aint SEED or 8th MS team, but it not bad. I love the fact that it's another story then before, not the colonies vs earth or the intervention stuff. It goes abit fast and the fact that their are 3 parts with alot of time in between (25 years!) does bother me. I do liek teh fact that there is realisme in MS design, you so don't have a whole new range of new MS after 2 years! MS are built to last quite a while.

I like the simplicity of the Earth forces MS. I like the weirdness of the vagan suits, but their transformation could have been better done and more meaningfull. The show is full fo references towards older shows, personaly i don't think that's nessessary, but it's a nice feature.

As for Woolf, his MS are great, i liek teh white suits, even if i do not liek white as a color. But to compare him to that horrible white version of Ultra Magnus....Yak!!!! Ultra magnus best reincarnation was in Animated and the bot mode in Prime is not bad either when he had some color! The only white is ugly! Looks like a dead optimus prime! To bad they didn't do a better job either with the alternity version of him i would have bought that if it had more color..

Stay on topic guys, there's an AGE discussion thread for this.

On a side note, do you think Bandai is done with AGE HGs after the Fortress, with the drought of kits in the third arc compared to the first and second arcs?

I hope not. There a still some kits I would like to get. But I wouldn't be surprised, if the Fortress was the last kit in the line :(

Not really the place so lets keep this short and just say I disagree, I love the white/blue/green color scheme.

As for the topic, now that I have G Bouncer I'm pretty much done with the line as far as HG's go.

None of the rest of the suits really do anything for me and none of the characters are enough to make up for what I think to be ugly designs. What I do hope for is that when the AGE HG line does end that we will finally see a CC or AC/MC HG line introduced and finally get some modern quality HG's from Turn A/Wing like we did with G and X.

Also, it might not sell the best, but if you can't give me a MG DX at least let me have a HGAW DX please Bandai.

In terms of HG from Age, we need:

Age-1 Flat w/ Zefuld Launcher Launcher
Age-1 Flat Glansa w/ Glastron Launcher

I think then we'll be done. Then all we need to do is wait for MG to come out.

I have a tendecy to buy more kits than I have time to build. >_<

The same for when I buy video games. Ugh~ It sucks not having like 24-7 to just play videogames and make GunPla... It'd be nice. But that's part of life ya know?

for me its Gundam kits, books i acquire and buy and various television shows. i have nearly 10 books i have to read but dont take the time to do so. models also suffer from procrastiantion heavily. but i tend to do decent amounts of work on the kits when i feel in the mood to do so. i have an interest in buying Deathscythe hell custom and one of those green Bawoo but i know it'll take a long time to get to them should i buy them. i build the ones in the same order i purchase them for the most part. though i went ahead with the 100 Nebula Blitz to get rid of the biggest job and the Quanta and full saber will be done together.

the 100 repaint isnte even the biggest one i have on the list as once the MS are done i'll need to assemble/glue a 1/72 SU-47 Berkut (swept forward subsonic jet) model before even painting. if im lucky i'll be able to do that in 10 years given my current pace.

what annoys me the most is i cant stand those stickers though i do use the eye stickers. the rest i paint to replace the stickers that are supposed to be used. if it wasnt for that id have completed the kits long ago.

That's pretty impressive: was the clear part painted over or just left as it was?

More SEED RD's.

Really hope they take a break from SEED and Wing soon. Not to even hate but they are just tearing through the Wing/SEED like there is no tomorrow. Need something to spread them out so I enjoy the annoucments more instead of just expecting them.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2012-09-21 06:13

I'd happily welcome some Side MS from Gundam Unicorn. But all Bandai is doing is re-releasing the Banshee and Unicorn Gundam, along with the Sinanju. They aren't making anything new. I would buy a Robot Damashii Loto or Delta Plus in a heartbeat.

It confuses me really. If by all accounts Gundam Unicorn is being a money maker, why not make more MS for the Robot Damashii series?

Probably because UC fans are more old-school and hence more acquainted with model kits, I guess. So their focus for Unicorn is on model kits.

On a side note, do all RGs come with fixed manipulator hands?

I got the RD Strike, nice but not flawless and definately to expensive for what you get.

I will be getting more 1/144 HG models from gundam AGE as for their reasonable price they are of superb quality.

bio9205 2012-09-21 09:35

Those 2 are amazing announcements. So bought.

EDIT: Looking at the Delta Kai - did anyone with the HG Delta Plus or Delta Gundam face any issues like looser joints due to the polycaps being worn out by transforming back and forth, with all that part swapping going on?

suiton629 2012-09-21 10:45

MG Darkhound

Needs more Age MG..

Blazer-X 2012-09-21 12:15

Delta Kai needs an MG, seriously. Which of course is going to suck, because now I don't know whether or not I should wait for the off-chance that Bandai would actually run with that idea, or get the HG since its a MSV and probably won't make it to the MG line.

Decisions, decisions...

Tak 2012-09-21 12:40

I am personally hoarding 1/144 Geara Zulus right now. The idea is to have a squad being led by a similar-sized Kampfer... :naughty:

ZEON grunt suits always look so much nicer :D

A bigger scan (from gundamguy). Finally the waverider mode. Standing without a stand too.:heh:

shadow5795 2012-09-21 13:31

YES finally the waverider mode. alot of inner frame parts are showing so it looks like it must be fully transformable. I think it will be stable, just the only thing that worries me are how the legs might connect to the waist, since it will have to split and connect to the backskirt for the transformation.RG zeta, MG nu, and MG darkhound cant come soon enough. Speaking of Nu does that text indicate that it will have a LED gimmick? And I hope this also means a mg sazabi ver kai for next year...thats going to be the best model kit ever!

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-09-21 13:55

Finally! A pic of RG Zeta standing without base-stand. Is it just me or that Zeta looks a little chubby? Still, it looks good overall. I don't mind it doesn't have the mega launcher. If I want it with the launcher, I'd buy the MG instead. Still waiting for the review of it.

suiton629 2012-09-21 13:58

I never actually saw the Zeta series let alone the UC Gundam.. The older animation style and the overall plain looking designs don't appeal to me..

I like the Gundam 00 style, which is why I think I also like Age so much.

I've been waiting for this one for quite a while. It seems like it'll come out just in time for the Christmas season, depending on where in December it is released.

Trust me you should atleast give zeta a shot (even better for animation watch the movies). As much as I love seed/seed destiny, I can see why alot of people hate it so much after watching zeta. Mad similarities. I still love the seed verse for what it is, but I got more respect for zeta. CCA is a classic and I dont know what you could hate about unicorn...UC story in glorious HD!

suiton629 2012-09-21 14:29

I don't know. Something about the UC stuff just doesn't click with me.
I saw some Unicorn, but I still don't get that feeling of awe that I get with 00 and to a small degree with Age...

Decisions, decisions...

The chance of those UC MSV HGs being made into MGs is very slim, unless the mecha is hugely popular. Usually, if Bandai really meant to release a MSV MS in MG, they will directly make it into MG without making the HGs first.

Examples of “direct” MSV MGs:
RX-78-4, MG RX-78-5, Zeta Plus A1 (Amuro custom), Zeta Plus C1, FAZZ Sentinel, Full Armor Gundam, Shin Matsunaga’s Zaku II, etc

Examples of MSV HGUCs which haven’t made into MGs so far:
Blue Destiny Series, GP02 MLRS, Hazel Series, Full Armor Gundam 7th, Delta Gundam, Nu HWS, etc

IIRC, the only Gundams from MSV that broke this pattern are only Hi-Nu, S Gundam & Ex-S Gundam which available in both HG & MG. But, some can still argue whether Hi-Nu, S & Ex-S are MSV suits or not.

Znozzy 2012-09-21 14:41

Unicorn is the sequel of sequels though, of course you won't get that feeling of awe if you start off with it.

Start off with the zeta movies, if you like those, check out MSG, zeta/ZZ and CA.

Or F91, sweet animation but super rushed story

helois 2012-09-21 15:49

speaking of about the Delta Kai, i remember a custom-conversion kit-idon'tknowhowcallit



i search info and the two "things" are proto Funnels,it use a system that will be the NT-D...but it is only in a videogame,right?
beacause an important "bridge" from Nu to Unicorn and it also transform it would appear in manga/OAV? :uhoh:

it will be a shame that this gundam will stay in the hangar... :heh::heh::heh::heh:

I think the crap animation is what kills it for me though.

Just forget about him, Znozz. He doesnít appreciate classics. He considers old animation as crap even though itís the best in its era. He canít comprehend that simple logic. Itís too much for him.

Appel 2012-09-21 16:38

Nice, I really like the Delta Kai! And since it doesn't need the gold plating the price is alright as well^^

Agreed! The high price on the gold plating of the Delta Gundam is what put me off of it, I'm glad we have this option.

MoonLightShadows 2012-09-21 19:08

After watching episode 4 of Unicorn. I was shocked and awed about how awesome the torrington base assault was. I like the ground based mobile suits. :D Maybe why i enjoyed 8th MS team. I really want to see Zeta Gundam (Chars Counter Attack was great) and the original Mobile Suit Gundam. See the Marasai take on the MK2.

Wish I had alot of the old HGUC mobile suits/gundams from the Universal Century.
