R2 fits the bill for an online exclusive exactly

R3 would probably never see the light of day as its a not well know MSV which did not even get a cut in the show. 0 Gundam and Astraea stands a much higher chance (and an Astraea will easily lead to a color swapped F)

Hint: Think Tallgeese 2 and Crossbone exclusives

Think about it
R3 got something even way better then a mere MG, it got a 1/100 metal build release!

That's beside the point. Besides if it will be released as an exclusive it willcost alot to import to Europe. The price isn't going to be far of my Metal build exia and that didn't require work.

For what it's worth, I think the reason most of us choose to build the models is precisely because we enjoy the "work" of building them. Otherwise, we'd all be collecting action figures instead.

Personally, that is why I am avoiding Metal Builds, even though the recent Destiny and Exia R3 look really awesome. There's no work involved.

Agreed.
Though that Exia R3 seems that much closer to getting a MG release now.

The next metal build is actually an appealing one. ARX-8 Laevatein from FMP.
I would have bought some Metal builds if they were not god damned 00 or SEED designs.

Why? I thought you only buy gundams that are canon?
Or such was your excuse when people asked why you weren't going to display one of your MG Strike RM kits as a perfect strike.

Because it is technically canon if Heine wasn't killed. He was supposed to pilot the Destiny.

No, he was not meant to pilot the Destiny. There is no reference to that anywhere in the anime.
That colour scheme only exists because it featured on the cover of one of TM revolutions albums and the lead singer was the one who voiced Heine.
It has no relevance to the anime in any way.

Then I can keep it as a collectible item and sell it later if I wanted?

If Bandai loves the MG Crossbone series, why don't they do a MG Crossbone X-0 Ghost?

What do you guys think would be a cool color scheme if I were to mash up a HG Gadessa, Garazzo, and Gaddess?
