MG Duel Armored Shroud ACTUAL COLOR
http://blog.yahoo.com/cybergundam/articles/617968

ok im poison now

HasuMasu 2012-01-30 08:01

I actually don't remember how the Duel looks like from the show anymore. :heh:

Looks cool though.

maknaedik 2012-01-30 08:15

MG Duel looks awesome all over, from boaxrt up to the model itself, both versions. Now I'm even more anticipating for MG Aegis...

pumpkins 2012-01-30 08:26

looks nice! hoping bandai will make a common frame like the wing suits and maybe there's a chance for a strike v2.0? :D

If they ever made one, I hope they make a Strike Rouge too <3

duotiga 2012-01-30 08:48

i dun really care for ver 2.0 strike.....i only wish

Strike Lightning Pack
Strike + Gunbarrel

casval cehack 2012-01-30 09:26

I wonder how similar Duel's runners to MG Age-1's "simplified" ones.

maknaedik 2012-01-30 09:27

This survey was made 2010 if I'm not mistaken. I can't get why people take this survey by heart. I mean, it's an effing survey and so what if your FAVORITE isn't here? That doesn't make your favorite less awesome you know.

Noticed something wrong with this pix ?

Yup. No more sliding gimmicks on the thighs of the legs. Proves the theory that Bandai is simplifing things and remove the non-essentials that the common people barely noticed right.

For comparsion, here's how the thigh armour slided when the knee bended on the old MG Strike :-

But like I said before, who cares about that as long as the outer surface looks good and acceptable.

LoweGear 2012-01-30 11:13

While I did appreciate the sliding plate mechanisms, said mechanism has been nonexistent for MG's for the past couple of years (and many early MG's didn't have them either). However, if they can maintain the range of movement of the legs without the need for said plate moving, then there's no really reason for them to keep it.

Butagami 2012-01-30 11:21

Now I like the Duel even more! Shame about the thigh armor, but no biggie.
I keep looking at that colorscheme. It's well done by bandai. simple blue and white, with subtle (at least without the shroud) orange touches.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-01-30 11:36

That Duel does look more and more gorgeous every time there's new pics about it. I'm so gonna buy it. Love the simple color scheme and the un-overkill weapons.

Appel 2012-01-30 11:54

it looks awesome but its a bummer that it doesnt have sliding panels.
but hey, the model looks great and the price is alright as well so who cares! and like Lowe said, MGs didnt have that feature for quite some time now. so its really not that much of a big deal.

Precisely. Should Bandai makes us choose between sliding panels and more MGs, any sane modeller will choose the second one :D.

Just pointing out the fact remains that we seem to be paying more for the same quality and less gimmick. All the improvements here are purely cosmectic like more details on the armour. I understand that it's unavoidable due to inflations throughtout the years. I wager pretty soon, all MGs will be like assembling the inner frame and putting on the armours later with no mechanic gimmicks and yet we have to pay, like, 5000 yen for one.

There's a 3rd option, paying more for Bandai to retain the old gimmicks.

casval cehack 2012-01-30 20:49

If the RG Gundam Mk. II still gets the sliding panels, adjustable leg joints and even debuts material tubing, whats left for the MG aside from scale?

duotiga 2012-01-30 21:00

see mg heavyarms, there is still sliding panels, just is hidden

AS I was lurking in our FB Group, I found this: http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u...th0103/108.jpg

Oh man, when is this?

I figured that this pic was taken in year 2006? I can imagine the faces of those who hoped for this.

An MG F90 huh....yea I'd say I'd get pretty exicted at the thought of that.

Some of it's versions are sweet.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-01-30 23:51

F-90 and its variations are cool to be MGed. Still, I think F-90 has a face that is 'warped' or wrong or ugly even in better medium like the Fix Figuration.


See?

Znozzy 2012-01-31 04:00

oh god that thing has a funky face.

HasuMasu 2012-01-31 07:14

Funky makes it sound way cooler than it actually is, that is an abomination. :heh:

pumpkins 2012-01-31 07:19

haha. it reminds me of some of those horrible drawings of rx-78's face in the original series. :)

Butagami 2012-01-31 10:50

It looks like the 0 gundam's face looks on the standard artwork of it.

And having way better plastic-molding techniques now probably helps...

I hope that it comes with clear plastics to hold the rose bits, but knowing Bandai, I doubt that they'll do.

suiton629 2012-01-31 20:02

Hey, what's the cheapest place I can buy the 1/100 No Grade Avalanche Exia online if I live in the US?

Oh yea and I finally managed to sell the SD 00 kit bundle I had on my eBay store. =P I gave the guy a good price since they had no value to me.

Your best bet would with gundamstoreandmore.com They have it for about $38 as compared to say imageanime.com which has it for $47. Here is the link for you to it.

Side question to everyone else, I really want to grab some yellow beam sabers to display with my gafran. Any one know which HG models come with them?

You might want to buy HG The O for that.

http://www.1999.co.jp/itbig02/10028341a.jpg

But I don't know whether it will fit the Gafran's hand or not.

Bonta Kun 2012-02-01 01:04

Well if your only after the beam saber then maybe going for something cheaper is better unless you wanted to get the The O but pretty sure the Beginning Gundam have yellow sabers and I know they are alot cheaper and better looking than the The O;)

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-02-01 01:14

You’re right Bonta Kun! HG Beginning Gundam does have yellow beam. I guess I just never put Gunpla Builders kit into consideration. :p
Spoiler for Reference for AaKkisa:

And it's a lot cheaper. :D

The HGUC's Palace Athene, GM II and Dra-C come to my mind.

Well, I always preferred the 1/144 scale so it's all good with me. :heh:

Not me, I don't collect any of the kit lines. I love what people can do with them, but they aren't for me. I'm an action figure collector, and it sucks to know that Bandai plays with favorites the model kit fans.:(

suiton629 2012-02-01 19:25

Anyone else notice that in Gundam Age, episode 16 we get a Gundam Seed/Seed Destiny reference...?

He threw the beam saber like a beam boomerang... >_>

And the AGE-2 Normal looks like Wing Gundam.... and the AGE-2 Double Bullet looks like 00 Raiser with Buster Rifles on the side of the wings instead of the 0 Raiser wings..

suiton629 2012-02-01 23:12

I ended up getting the 1/100 Avalanche Exia from GG Infinite. =) The guy is cool and I don't mind supporting him and his company. =P I suggest you guys do the same if you live in Canada or the US.
