I'm curios about how the cockpit gimmick function here.

I'm curious why does it need clear blocks to stand with the assault shroud on.

@Exia_00 - I only have the Destroy mode Banshee. Can you dual wield both the deployed and stored railguns? How about both claws?

duotiga 2012-01-24 09:55

@MakubeX2 : i think i saw the hinge at the armour shroud for the cockpit to open?

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-01-24 09:57

Wow, that Duel looks sexy with or without the Shroud. Canít wait to have it to pose un-armored holding the Railgun like it supposed to. Too bad it never happened in the anime. Oh yeah, I also hope that it can stand firm with the Shroud (that clear blocks makes the kit a little bit suspicious :uhoh:).

I was thinking that it will be lame if the cockpit area will only be on the chest piece of the Assault Shroud amour piece and not the Duel itself since we only saw it opened up from the amour add-on in this particular scan.

i still love that they give us the big rifle of the duel that the folks of ZAFT didnt take with them when they stole the suit from heliopolis^^ that thing looks badass!
considering how much you get with this kit i think 3360 yen at HLJ is a REALLY good price. if the model itself doesnt suffer from bandais new kit design then i really am all for their new stategy!

Apparently it can. Check out this review.

DuoRanger 2012-01-24 10:43

i was thinkin here, there's no way to convert a gundam skeleton in something heavier and deadly like this one?



i mean, what is the best skeleton or model to do this one?

Akyra 2012-01-24 11:03

Is that Atlas from Mech Warrior?? For some reason, the Gundam ver 2. comes to mind...

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-01-24 11:21

More like the MG Full Armor Gundam that will fit it more to be converted.

Okay, I gotta ask: where the hell does this sword come from? I've seen it elsewhere on other models, but as far as I can tell, it's not from the SEED verse.

when you think about it then the duel is actually a lot closer to the RX-78-2 than any other gundam in SEED :P its weapons loadout is the same and its exra "full armor" equipment is very similar as well, even down to the shoulder cannon! the only realy difference is the color scheme^^

Bonta Kun 2012-01-24 14:06

On the note about Mechwarrior, it's a shame you don't see reverse joint bipedals in gundam, I love chicken walkers:D
The Mad Cat is my favorite from Mech warrior and I use reverse joint legs whenever I can in stuff like Armoured Core.

Of course stuff like them wouldn't be as agile as normal bipedals but still cool to see none the less.

I agree. That's why I prefer the Duel over the Strike in terms of design.

personally i like the strike better because it actually is different from the original gundam^^
i still really like the duel but all in all i just really prefer the strike.

Those clear blocks are only ever used by modelling magazines to prop prototype models on. Once the full gunpla are released, they are posed standing up without the clear blocks, or on a designated Base.

That's the Grand Slam sword, which first appears on the Perfect Grade Strike Gundam. It's one of those weapons that's supposed to part of the Strike's canon arsenal, but doesn't show up in the series (due to being created after the series of course).

It has appeared in animated form at least once though, in the Gundam Evolve 8 short:



And here's a couple of images of it from the PG Strike's manual:



So yes, it is in fact part of the SEED verse.

Sorry, my post that you quoted is actually for DuoRanger. :p

Still, I agree with your opinion that Duel is the SEEDverse's RX-78-2. They have a lot in common.

Oh yeah, about the big Railgun (the official name is Bazooka Striker, I believe) on MG Duel, though we kinda have that already with 1/100 Regen Duel, its still fun to finally have the original Duel wields its original weapon. Also, if I want to pose the MG Duel with the Shroud, I can always give the Railgun to the 1/100 Duel to be used. :D

Bonta Kun 2012-01-24 16:28

I never ever thought I'd see a model of the Xamel(and it just occured to me that I never thought to google it:heh:) but glad someone out there shares a fondness for it.

YMS-16M Xamel - Scratch Build

Well tbh the only reason I have a fondness for it is cause I mostly remember it for it's huge big ass gun and ass so to speak:D
I never found appeal in the The O but I do like the Xamel.

Still for these big bulky types of mecha I'd like to see a MG Nightingale over the rest.

Gotta pit something against the Hi-Nu:D

Quite an inspirational piece, I might add.

Now, on topic :-

Yes, yes, you raise a good point there, yes, well, I want that. Give me! It shall be mine! I'm really digging the Duel. I never really thought of it as anything special, but now...

I'm also wondering if Ol' Strikes striker packs (mainly sword and blast) will fit on the shoulders, since they appear similar
