So only the weapons of Side MS are compatible?

She's compatible with parts from the Robot Damashii line it appears.

Oh yeah! Gimme more Gundam Girls please :p. Next, a Zaku girl will be cute ;).

Btw, is this the first of the (supposedly long) lines of Gundam-girls?:confused: It does look like Infinite Stratos girls though, or is it the other way around?

The very concept of Gundam Girls (aka Gundam Musume, which falls under the Mecha Musume category which the former did spawn) has been around since the 80's, mostly due to artist Akitaka Mika's works.

Infinite Stratos as a whole is very much inspired by the mecha musume genre in general, and as such owes its entire existence to Gundam Girls.

This is one of the few official Gundam Musume figures to exist though, being produced under the Armor Girls line (which also produced Infinite Stratos figures incidentally enough).

@ LoweGear: Thanx for the info ;).

Yeah, I kinda noticed that it’s been around much longer than IS girls. I just never bothered to find out more about the actual artist (even though I do have lots of those cute G Girls pics in my PC :p). Man, if there’s a galge-fighting game involving all of those Gundam Girls, IS girls and Strike Witch girls, that would be awesome :uhoh::p.

Technically, there is no "official" version of Gundam Musume. Mika Akitaka's art evolves over time, and there have been tons of "official" and fan versions of many Gundam mecha musume in the last three decades. This particular MS Girl is just one of many to be made, and certainly not the last.

Also, researching it again, it seems Cecilia Alcott x Blue Tears was actually the very first figure released for the Armor Girls Project line, with this MS Wing Gundam Ver. Ka being the second. And we know what the third will be:

A helmet-ed girl with a bootleg version of Dendrobium Orchis? Hmm... not very cute, tbh. If it has to be with helmet, I prefer the GP02-girl ;).

and since they already made Wing and Stamen girls, maybe we can expect more MC Gundam girls to follow :p.

If Mika Akitaka created one of the first Gundam Girl art decades ago (even had an artbook published) and IS an official gundam designer, isn't his version "official"? Especially now that two will be available on this particular line, based on his designs.

Bonta Kun 2012-02-10 18:49

On this note about Mecha Musume, I gotta post my favorite one as it involves my favorite gundam:D

http://i.imgur.com/19aI4s.jpg

The most awesome gundam made even more awesome, is such a thing possible?!:eek::bow:

MakubeX2 2012-02-10 19:52

That late 80's/early 90's facial design could use a little update here.

Possible MS, but only after this Gundam.

suiton629 2012-02-10 22:13

Do you guys think that Bandai might ever redo the MG Wing EW and MG Wing Zero Custom with a new inner frame, new hands, etc...?

HasuMasu 2012-02-10 22:13

Great choices there, guys. Here are some of mine.

Actually even before a Unicorn we have to have this


Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-02-10 23:11

Wow, somebody actually made an attempt at these Gundam Girls :uhoh::

Another addition to the long list :D:

RX93-2 2012-02-11 02:58

Eh I don't see the appeal in those gundamgirls, the Wing Ew one looks good though.

No, at least not in the coming years; and they do not need it.
The inner frames are good and the main gripe you probably have with them (hands) can be easily fixed (see how vegeta8259 did it for a decent method) or replaced (option parts, donor kits)

Appel 2012-02-11 03:47

i dont really like them, too :P i mean, i get it! cute girls are cool, gundams are cool. but putting them together like that doesnt make double cool for me XD

and yeah, i also dont think that bandai will make new versions of the wing EW and wing zero EW. i mean, they just released the wing last year, why would they release a new version of it already?

casval cehack 2012-02-11 03:51

Putting them together plus a red color scheme makes them triple cool.

Just got this. Now to test fit starting with RG Freedom.


Appel 2012-02-12 09:34

finished this today:
http://www.abload.de/img/img_0287iuafa.jpg
its the DC/DX hobby SD unicorn that prime92 talked about on youtube a few weeks ago.

im gonna be perfectly clear here: this thing SUUUUCKS! DX it cant to anything! the joints suck, most important connections suck, it falls apart all the time, the connection between the legs and the hips sucks, the important connections fail...
yeah, dont bother :P

HasuMasu 2012-02-13 06:53

Despite my comments on this thread, all the videos I've watched, and my knowledge on Gunpla--the truth is I don't have one.:( It was simply too expensive, however I was recently able to procure a Real Grade Freedom--construction is ongoing.:D I think the hardest part is taking stuff off the plates, there's always a bit left on the parts.:heh:

I'll post some pictures after I'm done panel-lining, currently on the legs. :cool:

Congrats then! Your first gunpla is an RG Freedom!!! You can trim those excess parts by using a cutter, a hobby knife if possible.

review of MG Duel

http://3dayslater.cocolog-enshu.com/...post-21e3.html

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-02-13 11:36

That is so sweet. Iíll def gonna get it sooner or later (I preferred the former). It really reminds me of my MG Alex coz the Ďnakedí version is so beautiful I ended up never build its armor. That may happen again with this MG Duel. The fact that it has its Bazooka Striker didnít help matters at all :D. I hope the articulation delivers and no loose parts and joints. Does the review said anything about it?:confused:

yeah, it looks great^^ but it also doesnt look "simpler" to me. they said they wanted to reduce the part count on this kit but it looks as detailed as the other MG releases! :O im really curious now...

Behold! My GunPla collection video uploaded today!! Bwhahaahahahah!!!

maknaedik 2012-02-13 19:28

Why does some people can't get sarcasm? *ultimate facepalm*

Anyway, I'm still curious about Duel if it'll retain the sliding armor on the legs. Besides my curiosity, it looks good. Just like Sir Dearka have said, it made me anticipate more on the upcoming releases.

For one, those hand parts with only one single moving digit from the MG Wing series is now present on the MG Duel here. So it is evident that they will be on the other 3 GAT-X kits.

Second, Bandai has gone back to basics here. That is making the kits looks as good as possible without all the bells and whistles. (Like sliding joints and plates.) All efforts are now concerntrated on the surfaces, like more details on the armours and brighter colours for the parts etc.

casval cehack 2012-02-13 21:27

Bandai could have atleast included manipulator options like in the MG OO 7S/G.

LoweGear 2012-02-14 09:32

It's times like these I realize that Animesuki doesn't have a "Models and Figures" section. But since this is related to Bandai's Armor Girls Project:

http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/a...9205020313.jpg

Looks like we've found our next AGP lineup after the GP03 musume.

Well, if you can't post them here, I think you can do it in the existing 'figurines thread' even though 'Armor Girls' are not exactly figurines. Personally, I think it's fine to post them here as long as it's about Gundam Musume and the likes.

Is it worth it? What do I need to search on eBay? Also I'm just hoping it isn't overpriced and I'd prefer if it was located in the US and not like China or something.

Eh~ If Prime92 think it's ok quality, I'm not 100% sure if I want it. I hope we get a Bandai release.

whats wrong with prime92's opinion? :O i got several KO kits that she reviewed for example and they all were just as "alright" as she said :P i think she is definitely one of the best reviewers^^ great and many oob reviews, unique paintjobs and its funny to hear her yell at a bad kit when something goes wrong^^

and i REALLY doubt that we will see a bandai release of this. and if they do release it im sure that they wont release the full sabre pack by itself but together with the MG OOQ.

Nothing is wrong with Prime92's reviews. I just follow her opinion and trust that it's good. So if she says it's ok, then I have to assume it's ok since I'm not into GunPla much and I prefer to go with Bandai since they're the creators and the ones that own the GunPla business ya know?
