Sooo many RD releases. I'm flooded!

Even though I'm not a fan of figures, in fact, I only have two: 1 SHCM Pro and 1 HCM Pro, I'm actually interested in some.

RD Double X + G-Falcon? HELL YEAH! But I've been wanting an HG release (yes, an MG could be better) of it more. So I'm not gonna buy it.

RD Extreme Gundam Type Leos, amm, I like it. But, well, I think it's available in model form, which I prefer.

RD Testament Gundam, a sure buy for me. I'll definitely buy this because seeing this in HG form is low.

RD Aries isn't red, but somehow, it attracts me. It's my most favorite grunt unit in Gundam Wing. But most likely, I'm not gonna buy this as well.

RD GunCannon DT is the second in my list. I might just buy that.

RD GN-X IV Trans-am, hell yes. Pre-ordered :)

suiton629 2012-10-26 12:07

Well, I'm just excited about the Metal Build Exia..

I like how it has parts for Exia, Exia Repair 2, and Exia Repair 3...
I am hoping that we get a MG Exia R2 with parts for Exia Repair 3. If that happens, then I'll be getting 2 of those. =P

* EDIT *

@maknaedik
I think some MG's from Gundam X would be sweet. But let's have Bandai finish up the AGE, Seed, Seed Destiny, Wing EW, and 00 MG's first.. =P

Alternatively, Real Grades from Gundam X would be cool.

suiton629 2012-10-28 14:14

I was thinking.. What are your thoughts on:

MG Strike (Aile)
MG Strike (Launcher)
MG Strike (Sword)
MG Freedom
MG Strike Freedom

Anyone got news on the Movie ending's version of 00 QAN[T]? The one covered in flowers but has some angelic/wing effects? I've been holding off on the MG 00 QAN[T] hoping they would release that one.

Did you mean the ELS Qan[T]?

There’s a Robot Damashii (RD) of it if you want one:

To be honest, I doubt Bandai will make a MG of it considering ELS is not a prominent Gundam and also has some color gradation on its body which is kinda difficult to be applied on runners of a model kit. I think the RD version is your best shot (for now and the foreseeable future).

It can be a P-Bandai Online Hobby exclusive release.
The gradation effect can be overcome with Bandai using the glittery kinda wings like the MG Destiny's wings of light. It wouldn't be exactly like it, but it could happen.

Also, the fact that Bandai is releasing a Metal Build of Exia seems to me that they still have interest in 00. So I am guessing that we might see a MG Exia Repair 2 kit (with improved inner frame) with parts for the Repair 3 version like the Metal Build...and promote those LED units again. :p

RX93-2 2012-10-29 12:47

You want a new inner frame for MG Exia now? There really is no pleasing you is there.
That kit is as recent as they get and even in your ~perfect 00 MG top tier suiton deluxe pristine~ list of good kits, and now it needs a newer version? Seriously...

Katoki designing a MG just for you whilst simultaneously sucking you off will need something more for you wouldn't it?

FalsePrime 2012-10-29 15:26

White Unicorn RG will be amazing. I really hope we get it sooner then later.

Given how many Strike's they've pumped out I have hopes that we will get it fairly quickly. Though the lack of G3 and the like could say the oppisite.

Still since we got the RG Zeta annoucement the White Unicorn is what has had me the most hyped.

1/100 metal build blast impulse is out there too, i don't see a NG 1/100 or a MG of that one.

Last I checked the online exclusives are recolors of existing molds, ELS Qan[T] would require a full new mold which would rather warrant a normal HG release

And considering it have one of (if not the shortest) gundam screen times ever, chances I would say are near zero


On a side note I finished my HG G-Bouncer, beautiful kit ^^, anyways deciding what to do next, I have these choices:

1. Put uncompleted 1/100 Tallgeese out of its misery and finish it
2. Build MG GP-01FB that I started cutting one or two parts out of
3. Build an entirely unopened HGUC Kshatriya
4. Build an entirely unopened 1/100 NG Vent Savior
5. Work on my LM HG Evangelion Angel 13 Bardiel

The one in the magazine scan has grey chest, purple cockpit, darker yellow and the overall darker purple compared to the MG’s white chest, grey cockpit, lighter yellow and pink-ish purple.

I’d say the one in the scan looks a lot better. If Bandai release it as a RG, I’d def get it :).

maknaedik 2012-10-29 23:20

I'd still want an MG of white unicorn Zeta over the RG. I almost had my hands on it until my money evaporated.

Why improve an inner frame that hasn't much problems? If so, then they should've updated all those who have worse problems.

The MG is cool (mine just came in actually) but honestly it's so sticker heavy that it really hurts it.

With all the color variants on RG's already the White Unicorn has a chance to have alot more of the pink actually be apart of the unit instead of how little of it is on the MG while the rest is just White and Grey.

As for Nike, I mean Wing EW and Wing Zero EW are one things when you talk about improved IF's, but an Exia upgrade? That is a whole new level of crazy for you.

So, Amuro is really the pilot of that thing (Amuro Ver)

Cuz if its the display base the image might just be a reference for painting the stand

FalsePrime 2012-10-30 18:12

Just the stand.

It's just easy to talk about the RG because they have produced a White Unicorn based on multiple Zeta's and the RG line isn't afraid of recolors/variants and it's very easy to see them releasing a WU.

Wow. Someone did a pretty cool custom color scheme, inspired by the Age-2 Normal Special Forces..

Yeah, you could do that too, with a can of spray paint.

Anyway - I don't suppose the new HG METEOR exclusive is a new mold, right? I'm assuming it just comes with new parts to fit the RGs, but I'm not sure.

Yes, just some new decals/stickers and perhaps extra parts so that it'll fit in RG Justice and Freedom. I don't own one so I'm not sure about the latter.

Ikaoru 2012-10-31 20:34

I just watched some reviews about RG... How flimsy or weak are their joints? One reviewer got bob of its thumb broken and replacement is a $$$ pain.

Maybe you can ask duotiga since he usually own those online exclusive items. Or you can search for a through review of it.

duotiga 2012-10-31 21:55

Latest meteor kit is Hg with RG decal...similar to mk II flying armour + g defensor for the RG

They are noticeably so, caution is advised.

And yes, I've had a couple parts broken by now. :heh:

yeah, that is definitely well made. The last foto is a comparison with the normal MG right? going by that, he's added and improved a lot of details. More than "just a coat of spraypaint"

And did anyone else lol at the eruption of hate aimed at Nike for his spamtastic comment?

maknaedik 2012-11-01 11:09

I bet we'll be seeing this to Nike's wishlist, in MG form that is: http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2012/1...equipment.html

Probably not. I'm still waiting from Bandai on more MG from 00 kits to be honest. Age MG's.. Yes I want more, but I think they'll trickle them out through 2013 and maybe early 2014.

I know the modeller added a ton of new details, my "coat of spray paint" comment was just part of my "eruption of hate". :heh:

Anyway, early reviews for the HGUC Byarlant Custom are out - looks freaking amazing. I don't think it uses stickers at all, Bandai really went all out on this one.

suiton629 2012-11-02 10:42

So~ I won the 8 Real Grade prize pack from the 3rd Campaign... =)
What to do...what to do...

It does uses stickers. mostly for the red thrusters in the shoulders and other parts

As a random side note I really hope we get a MG Providence, my interest in the suit was re-sparked seeing the remastered version of it launching while Genesis fired

IIRC Bandai released a promotional silhouette pic of Providence some time ago. Itís been posted in this thread some pages back. Donít know if Bandai will go through with it or will chicken-out like in the case of MG Gafran.

I just realized that, but nevertheless those red stickers can be easily omitted/painted over. Still looks awesome. :D

A MG Providence would be cool. If only they'd give us a MG Justice to match, then the trio would be complete.

suiton629 2012-11-02 22:52

Do you guys supposed we will get Real Grade kits of:

Strike Freedom
Impulse
Force Impulse
Sword Impulse
Blast Impulse
Destiny
Aegis
Justice
Infinite Justice

What about 00 series Real Grade?

Nah. I think these are better bets..

Strike Freedom
Impulse
Force Impulse
Sword Impulse
Blast Impulse
Destiny
Aegis
Infinite Justice

Skye629 2012-11-03 18:53

Anyone know if that painting trick with silver as a base then white works with gundam markers?

Working on HGUC Kshatriya, anything I need to be careful of on that kit?

(Guess which horrible part I'm working on)

As much as I'd like to see some GSD suits get the RG treatment, they're unlikely to happen unless we see a GSD remaster, probably next year. A safer bet is, say, Providence?

Ah, those annoying Sleeves markings. :heh: I use a white paint marker to add details on some of my kits, and I'm planning to do the same for the Rozen Zulu. I use a few layers so I don't use silver as a base, but I guess I'm an amateur painter.

Skye629 2012-11-03 23:44

Anyone know a good tool with a sharp/fine tip that helps scrape away paint/gundam marker that is not sharp enough to damage plastic and maintain its point?

(trying to clean excess on Sleeve parts ;_;)

Oh yeah the silver base with gundam markers work, tried it out, way less coats of white required
