My additions:

MG GuAIZ R

MG Kshatriya (damn near impossible right now, but perhaps, with new technology/materials, someday...)

By the way, I've got a question. I've never really paid attention to it, but if a kit is sceduled for release in october, will it come out at the beginning of the month, or the end?

Mg's usually at the end (around the 25th), but that's not always the case.
MG's also get a mid-month releases due to increasing number of releases.

1/144 HG's can released all over the month, but most still near the end.
In the past bandai posted a detailed release and rerelease schedule per month on it's japanese website, but it has vanished in recent years (can't find it anymore). That was very practical.

It's still listed on Gundam.info, aside from the hobby magazine announcements around the 3rd week of each month.

thanks guys, that's very helpful. But that hase raised another question. For the Aegis MG's release date, gundam.info says september, but HLJ says october....Which one is it?

suiton629 2012-09-26 10:51

I would go with Hobby Link Japan. They seem to be more accurate with stuff like that.

I'm pretty sure it's for October release :)

That builds a bit of suspense for me though, as my Qan[T] has been in a private warehouse for over 30 days now, and it'll take at least a month for the Aegis to be released... Damn, might as well have it shipped over now, as that red chunk of awesome will never make it in time :/

Private warehouse? You mean that HLJ thing where they'll keep it for you when they have it in stock and then ship it out when it's ready? Meh.. You could've tried Amazon or eBay to see if they have the MG 00 Qan[T]...

Mine is still safe in my room..ehehe...

bio9205 2012-09-26 19:58



Cool, but not very unique. I was hoping to see it with all its beam sabers drawn in that epic duel with the Strike.

suiton629 2012-09-26 20:28

I have to admit..

MG Aegis looks epic!
I just wished that Bandai would re-release the MG Strike (and packs), MG Freedom, and MG Strike Freedom using the new frame...same for Infinite Just. And we need to get a Justice.

It would look good with those 3 + Aegis + Infinite Justice

What the hell? Inf Justice and Strike Freedom aren't even that old and certainly not even close to needing a 2.0.

God damn.

Just stating something that I thought would be cool. No need to freak out..

Anyway, I made a blog post just a few moments ago.

http://inb4suiton.blogspot.com/2012/...-wip-blog.html

I'm planning on doing WIP blog posts of my GunPla kit backlog. Please visit and comment the order I should do them in. It's kind of a big list (not not really compared to the guys that are more into GunPla and have been doing it for longer than I have)...

duotiga 2012-09-26 21:49

Give me Perfect Strike & i be a happy Modeller ...

Yeah pretty much. And now, he even add MG Strike Freedom 2.0 & MG Infinite Justice 2.0 to his near-impossible wishlist. This guyís ridiculousness knows no bounds and Iím kinda entertained by it (even though Iím not a masochist).

On another note, I think Aegis pose for that cover is boring. Why doesnít the illustrator draw it with its yellow beams which I swear will be much more appealing to buyers than the overdone pointing-gun pose.

maknaedik 2012-09-27 01:09

I don't quite get why Infinite Justice needs a new frame. The only thing that needs to get fixes is SF, but IJ?! It has a sliding panel for legs, some gimmicks here and there and now it needs a new frame?

Skye629 2012-09-27 01:25

I think I found the perfect HG with yellow beams for my Vagan HGs which design I like:

Anyone here built the HGUC Palace Athene? $20 on Hobbywave is quite tempting

firefox 2012-09-27 01:59

And yet again the boardfool got the attention for at least half a page :D

Wy do you guys even read what he writes????

No seed Mg's need a version 2.0 at this moment , not even strike. The only thing i don't like about them (strike and freedom that is) is the fact that they do not have pins in their hands to lock their weapons into place. For the rest they are still great!

FalsePrime 2012-09-27 02:48

While I disagree that no MG needs a 2.0, the fact is we are getting MG Nu Ver Ka and some amazing suits so while some could use it I love Bandai focusing on giving us more new stuff then worrying about just the old stuff over and over again.

Zeydra 2012-09-27 03:24

To be fair if any SEED suit could do with a 2.0 (or maybe just a 1.5) it would be Strike. Mainly because it is a part of the GAT series and next to the modern kits it probably will look a bit dated.

Anyway, I'm liking that Aegis box art, it's nothing unique or anything but I love the colour contrast between the red of the Aegis and the blue of the Earth, striking without being overbearing.

I build the Palace Athene, and I can only recommend it :D Very detailed and really unique. It's also quite the big kit, it will definitely stand out ;) I say, go for it :D

duotiga 2012-09-27 06:49

hhmmm...MG/HG Seed (Destiny) is missing Blast Impulse.....Destiny impulse wld be good also...

for the moment i thought Aegis boxart wld be this
http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o...sgundam1wg.jpg

looks like is using op1/2 pose

Akyra 2012-09-27 07:14

Honestly, you don't really need ver 2.0s for those Seed MGs (not yet anyway).

But do make druggie MGs. Especially Calamity! Dreadnought or Hyperion?

EDIT: Actually, they can MG the Akatsuki!

derrickmc63 2012-09-27 11:56

just finished building the gelgoog ver2.0 and this is probably one of my favorite looking mobile suits. the build was also very exciting. i even took the time to paint the innerframe. this was my second 2.0 kit and im thinking about getting char's zaku 2 ver2.0. Either that or I'll wait for the Nu Gundam ver ka.

Sweet im getting it then :D

IMO guys if any MGs need 2.0s I want a 2.0 Gundam set from 0083 Stardust Memories, and throw in a GP04 and Gerbera Tetra while they're at it

Have fun with it :D

And agreed, I would love to see a GP01 2.0 :)

MoonLightShadows 2012-09-28 02:10

I was thinking of getting the palace Athene and Gaplant, Look like unique and neat mobile suits. :p

Did you built the normal (green/grey) or the Char version?

I've built the green/grey version 2.0. I found it's gun, even if it has the extra granadelauncher, pretty smaal, so i gave him teh old bigger sniper gun from the anavel gato version.
The char version is on my want list.

It's indeed an interesting build.

suiton629 2012-09-28 11:33

Just finished the MG age 1 normal. Will update my blog later with images and thoughts. Overall it was a good build but instructions were a little tricky sometimes and a few pegs seem a bit small or weak.

Sounds like it needs a 2.0 soon...:p

Anyway, yesterday my HG AGE-3 Normal, Ghirarga and AGE-FX arrived. AGE-3 and Ghirarga are finished. Great kits overall, but my AGE-3 was kinda damaged. Seems to be from Bandai's mold. The white part for the torso is messed up, it's like a panel line that goes all over the place :( I'm glad that it's kinda covered from the blue chestpart. Currently working on the AGE-FX, Rifle, stand and C-Funnels are done, now doing the legs.

This is simply epic.
Spoiler for size:


Burst Mode FX would make such an epic kit.

You know what?
MG Strike, Aegis, Buster, Duel and Blitz need to have the functionality to combine Voltron-style into some colossal clusterfuck of a Gundam and I feel personally insluted that Bandai did not include this functionality.

For that kinda money it should be able to transform. Aegis 's transformation is not that complicated.

Yeah, the product details on the Tamashii Nation website says the transformation has been omitted. Keep in mind, it was from a google translate, but I saw the word "omitted" mixed in with "transformation". So it's not looking good.


I mean, one way or the other, I don't mind it. I'm just happy that Aegis is finally getting a proper action figure, it's been way over due. But I did like its MA mode as well. I thought that the figure making process (especially with Robot Damashii figures) was advanced enough to implement a transformation stable enough to go well with the figure. I guess Bandai didn't wanna risk it.

Dude, five robots combining into one giant robot is a super-robot thing, not real-robot like Gundam. You might expect it from a series like G Gundam but if a regular Gundam series really apply it, people will start thinking that the Gundam series is ripping-off Go-Lion (Voltron) or worse, Power Rangers :heh:.
