RD ELS OO Qan[T] anyone?^^
http://gundamguy.blogspot.de/2012/06...-robot_22.html
this was to be expected. a MG or even HG version was very unlikely because of the color gradiants in the wings.

HasuMasu 2012-06-22 06:34

^ NOOOOOOOOOOO

Dammit, web exclusive. :heh:

I think an MG for this would be awesome! And the gradients on the wings isn't an issue. They can do it if they want.

And if this gets a an MG..well...we all know what will get a MG release then right?

they could but it would make the kit VERY expensive.
bandai usually doesnt pre-paint their kits and molding gradients like this in plastic isnt really possible, at least not in a mass-production run.
for example, this is why they redisigned the hi-nu gundam. the original version had color gradients in the funnels:

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__.../Rx-93-v-2.jpg

but the models didnt to make it easier to turn the design into a model kit.

i could see them releasing a B-club resin conversion but thats about it. im pretty sure the RD figure is as good as its gonna get.

MakubeX2 2012-06-22 09:45

The ELS Quanta had like.....5 secs of screentime, too few to get a mass market interest. Except for those mindless diehard fans, which makes up the minority.

The web exclusive status for the figure will ensure that Bandai can maximise their profit because it will be release on a made-to-order basis. But I do want to know what kind of weapons they planned to package the figure with.

suiton629 2012-06-22 09:45

Well they sort of did it with the MG Destiny Gundam Extreme Blast Mode and the HG 0 Gundam (Roll Out Color).

So they could release the MG ELS Qan[T] and slightly alter the wing pieces. I'm sure pro modelers could take whatever Bandai gives and modify it through air brushing...

They don't need to package it with a weapon.

Yes I know that it had like 5 seconds of screen time, but it's like the Exia R2. I think that too will get a MG release since it's so similar to the existing MG Exia, and they would probably just reuse most of the mold from the existing MG Exia and take parts from the MG 00 Raiser (hands, sword, clear green eye/camera piece..).

Bandai could make the MG ELS Qan[T] like a limited run release ya know? Maybe price it at like $75 and package in 2 more of those green LED's or just have us buy it as an optional thing again..lol

Basically, the 00 series just needs the Exia R2 and ELS Qan[T] in MG release and then I think it's perfectly fine.

official boxart for HG 1/144 Dark Hound

Looks good. But I think for this one, I want to see if an MG is released for it. I mean it is Asem's (technically) 4th variation if you count the Special Ops version which I think needs an MG as well. =P

To tell you frankly....Figurine worth more than model kits if you can keep it properly even after taking out for display

The thing is I'm not into collecting figures. I'm mainly interesting in collecting and building MG kits of lead Gundams (and all of its previous forms and variations).

=)

So I'm really hoping for the ELS Qan[T] and Exia R2 to get MG releases eventually...maybe late 2012 or early 2013?

I know right now it's mainly Seed, Wing, Age, and Unicorn.. But I feel like a 00 MG kit or 2 will slip in there with Unicorn basically done, and Age mostly having variations of the same kit with different arms, legs, and weapons...

And then there's my second love...the Age series. =P

(You can see what MG kits I want in my signature in case you hadn't noticed..)

Anyway, if I were to get a figure, I would buy it with the intention of reselling it so I would keep it sealed and safe in my room, and then sell it at like 2x what I spent like a few years later.

RX93-2 2012-06-22 11:30

You'd be surprised how much redesigned parts an MG ELS 00Q would need, basically the entire armor.
Hoping for a resin conversion is the best you can do tbh.

suiton629 2012-06-22 11:33

We can always hope. =P

Well, it is more of a recolor instead of a redesign if they do that. It can still keep its general appearance, but it will just have minor color alteration.

Seems like a real obscure MS to make. All it did was stand there at the end of the movie. We dont even know what its capabilities are. I'd rather have a figure of Harute.

But it's an alien Gundam and looks organic :p. One could argue that it's the first of its kind. So, I think those aspects alone makes Qant ELS quite a cool Gundam :D.

duotiga 2012-06-22 19:57

*sarcasm &point *cough cough
Eva kit look alike if want mg els ver...who wants?


So back to the basic question Nike , buy MG to stake boxes as high as possible?

Ikaoru 2012-06-22 20:36

Are we even going to have other 1/100 00 Movie kits? 00 Qanta is not enough for me :/

There are a few NG kits...

Edit: Nevermind... Not reading it properly lol. I didn't much like the movie suits personally. They are just too odd... Maybe Zabanya. The rest were just odd looking to me. Bulky odd parts.

imo Zabanya is also odd with two "house fences" attached to its waist :heh:.

Ikaoru 2012-06-22 20:55

Lol... I find those MS design as "good for stand" thinking that they're too top
Heavy to stand on their own

duotiga 2012-06-22 20:57

I don't mind Harute and/or Raphael . The design are unique itself

Zabanya...I can guarantee that you got no space to put all the holster & rifle bits II on display

Providenceangle 2012-06-22 21:41

Harute has those huge ass thrusters though lol. Maybe if the proportions were more even?

is it just me? the lance looks more freaking longer & pointier than what we saw in the show?

Rising Dragon 2012-06-22 23:08

Official lineart showed that the DODS Lancer is longer than the Hyper DODS Rifle, which makes it possible that it still contains the Hyper DODS Rifle barrel within it.

bio9205 2012-06-23 06:03

Any ideas on how the Dark Hound's DODS Lancer fits into its chest in Strider form? I really hope we don't have to remove that white piece in order to plug it into the chest.

kakakka 2012-06-23 08:25

I think that might be the case. I can imagine it right now that that white piece is connected to the chest through that hole in Age-2's "A".

The gunpla lance itself looks a little shorter in the promo photos thus show accurate.

In addition, the lance still has the swiveling grip/peg.

Fantastic Dark Hound boxart BTW.

I'm a big fan of the Sinanju, I think it's the prettiest, coolest, most sexy peice or molded plastic there is:p but I have to admit that opinion was questioned when I look at the MG Blitz, it really is just wow!

WOW no. 1!

WOW no. 2!

WOW no. 3!

Can't wait to see some custom paint jobs pop up in the future, they should be a real treat for the eyes.

evolution_ayu 2012-06-24 20:03

In that case, I hope you like my MG Sinanju that I built some time ago. ;)

Providenceangle 2012-06-24 20:17

Wonder if they will ever make a PG sinanju? Gotta get me one soon. Might grab a HG and give it MG detailing.

im a huge fan of the kit as well! and im really glad to have my titanium finish version:

http://www.abload.de/img/1327447611.lollazer_ilxmgy.jpg

because it allows lazy people like me to have a similar result with minimal effort XD but in the end i probably paid more for it.

Blitz is indeed beautiful. Itís my favourite among the GATX series. But those decals on the front skirts, ugh. They ruin the streamline design of Blitz and sticking out like a sore thumb :mad:. The same thing happened to MG Epyon. Some of the decals ruin the suit aesthetically coz they block the beauty of its maroon red. When I get my hands on Blitz, Iíll put the decals in some better places or not at all.

@Ayu
Wow, is that really yours? Fantastic! Is that the the actual Titanium Finish Edition or you just paint it?

FalsePrime 2012-06-24 21:18

Sinanju is easily my favorite Villain design and probably my number 2 design and model overall.

I to would love a PG Sinanju. The only suit that comes close to it for me is the MG Epyon EW.

Thanks for the encouragement guys! I painted the normal one in metallic colours.

I used to buy and build indiscriminately when I was much younger. I can't afford to buy every single kit or the expensive ones so I build selectively now. Like many of you I really like these things so I feel it's worthwhile to put in a little bit of effort into them to make them look so much better, and improve my skills along the way rather than staying at the same skill level. :heh:

Skye629 2012-06-25 03:32

Funny thing to note is the Sinanju is one of the few things the Gundam community haves in common, I have not seen a single person who disliked the design at all, even if they hated UC

It's a beautiful design, for sure.

The only bad thing about it is the head vulcans

Not to play devil's advocate here, I don't hate the design, but I do think it's a bit lacking. :uhoh:
