Just after reading the announcements of the MG Deathscythe, I took out my old HG 1/100 Deathscythe Hell Custom to take a quick look and envisioned how awesome an MG version of it must be. Fact: This was the very first Gundam that I actually fell in love with after seeing its HG 1/144 Boxart.
Love it or hate it, the Deathscythe Hell Custom has one of the coolest motifs, color scheme, weapon, AND design style (You gotta dig those wings). This would be Batman’s Gundam of choice (after he removes the vulcans)! Strike Noir doesn’t really work because it has guns and Batman hates guns… >_>
So… for me to get a vague and general idea of the MG Deathscythe, I just removed its wings…
Yea… I think it just lost all of its menacing aura. The new MG Deathscythe will based on Katoki’s design so imagine this: Everything is pretty much the same except replace the upper body with the regular (Okawara’s) Deathscythe’s and change the color scheme a bit. There you go.
Gotta have its wings back… xD. Anyway, my model looks pathetic. If you are still not convinced about this being Batman’s Gundam, then check this one out from ebasenet. It’ll rinse out the bad images here from your eyes too =)
