Wow, what an image. Facing off against THAT is certainly a “FML” moment… ^^;. Anyway, It’s that ttime again. Time to discuss the development in the Gunpla world since last time…
First off, the release of the MG Deathscythe Hell. About time! My childhood favorite! Oh how I’ve been longing for one… and now I’m not getting it. Nor any other Gunpla for that matter (more on this in a later post). The usual influx of reviews are out already and I’m sure most of you have seen them already so I don’t think I have to bother linking them here again. The above photo of it is very informative… very “home look”; I can see all the nubs that I need to watch out for and where the parts separate.
Upper arm armor part- HOLY TERRIBLE GATE PLACEMENT BANDAI! Okay… just about every MG model’s upper armor is similar to the above but just about all them have the gate/nubs off to the side or just hidden. Why the Hell did they place it on the front this time? That’s just… baffling. Even though the modeler did a great job on cleaning the nub, it is still clearly visible.
This is what I have in mind for the DSH whenever I decide to pick it up… though with some slight alterations.
Anyone find that crooked decal on its chest to be kinda out of place? xD. Guess there’s really not much room to slap it on haha. Oh how I have to keep reminding myself that Nataku will be the “better” version otherwise I would’ve added it to my “get” list…
While I can’t say for certain at this point, the RG seems to be taking design cues from both the MG and the PG; it’s not quite a 1/144 version of the PG Strike but still poised to be a lot better looking than the MG Strike. “Challenge something new” eh? I wonder what that will be.
So how would you describe the color of the Jegan ECOAS?
I am no fan of the Jegan by any stretch of the imagination but along with the Stark Jegan, this one is also HOT! but alas…. I’ll have to remove it from my “get” list along with many others.
Many 00 fans’ prayers have been answered with the recently announced MG 00 Raiser… which was bound to happen sooner or later anyway when MG Quant was announced. I’m sorry but… at first glance, I have a hard time telling it apart from the HG 1/144 00 Raiser w/ GN Sword III. Yea, the HG looks THAT good. Only upon closer inspection did I realize the MG bits (hands, inner knees, head, abdomen, feet, and forearms). One thing I do like is that the GN Sword III’s blade looks heckuva lot better than the MG iteration of Exia’s GN Sword’s blade (too wide and not long enough).
Is that seriously how long (short) the Raiser Sword effect part is? The GN spatulas are just as long =(. Hmm.. I supposed if Bandai made it any longer then people will just whine about how the arm can’t hold up the sword with the effect parts on.
Even before more promos and details are out, I can already see one thing is for certain… back-heaviness. Can’t help it since it’s inherent by design. Can’t entirely blame Bandai. Now for the price… 6500 yen ~ $75 + shipping (varies) = ~$85-95. Ouch. I’d sooner build the PG 00 Raiser…I think. Master Grade models are ever so slowly creeping toward 3-digit price tags as the norm…
“OMG I CAN ALREADY TELL FROM THIS BLURRY LINEART THAT I DONT LIKE THIS MODEL BECAUSE IT IS DIFFERENT SO THIS SUCKS! OKAWARA>KATOKI! OH AND NO WING ZERO! D:<”
^ Some of the reactions I’ve seen gave me a really good laugh. I thought more people would be more thrilled about this news but guess that’s just me. I am THRILLED! Giant beam saber! GIANT! Well, at least I can hope Bandai can exaggerate the size of the beam a little more than the anime to make it even more badass. I’m looking forward to it fully… even if I am not getting it (yet…).
Yes there are some alterations, but still looks like Epyon to me. I’m kinda hoping Katoki will do away with that silly Twin Dragon transformation (it’s not fooling anyone!) like he did away with WZ’s Neo Bird mode in the WZC for the sake of model structural integrity but that sounds highly unlikely. Oh well.
Hmm… funny… no UC Gundams to talk about this time around? Anything here that is piquing your interest?
Alright, until next time…
