I still hope for a MG Xi Gundam. I really don't go for Gunpla anymore but I'll go for that.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I asked if I have "Time For L-Gaim" but I got "No Reply From The Wind".
Didn't they already do one? Wasn't the OYW version pretty much a 1/100 scaled down PG? This is more like the ver. 4.0.

This folks is why I gave up buying Gundam kits. Every few months it's a rehash for $20 more than the one they did before. I now it's partly because I've been buying the MG kits since the Dom, but every new MG is a slap in the face with no God damn MG Guntank.

Ah, but that's the fucking point. The PG Gundam and all the Master grade versions to date have been some degree of Katoki redesign. This "2.0" will be the first MG with all new parts and the first to attempt to emulate the original Gundam as it appeared in MSG and the movie trilogy. Finally. I have been NEEDING this.

And yes, They do need to make a MG Guntank.
I'm amazed nobody is freaking out about the HGUC Zaku FZ....about time Bandai comes out with a decent kit of that design.
*swoon*

Wait a minute, wasn't the Mk-II the 'first' MS with a movable frame structure? Looks like Retcon at warp speed!

Welcome the MG since..... forever
Quite a gimmick if they can really fit a rotating cockpit inside a transforming 1:100 core fighter.

Wow, the G-Tank has motorized treads, shooting action like the Acguy, and lights and recoil action. It appears they finally realized they hadn't done a Guntank yet and decided to make up for the fact by making it the most feature-heavy MG ever. It's almost Glorious Series quality. I hope it's not Glorious Series price.
look at those sexy legs

Doesn't matter how much it costs. The ARMS MOVE.

I love how Bandai likes to remind us of how many times we've bought an RX-78-2 kit.

Building Gunpla is hard work.

What happened to the MG Guntank? Bandai showed what looked like a finished version months ago and it's been MIA ever since. I haven't bought a Gundam kit since the MG Gyan, and the GT was going to be my final Gundam kit. I guess Bandai heard about it and wants me to reconsider.

I realize the economy makes the overly detailed and electronics-laden kit they showed probably more pricey than what it was going to be back in June, but I hope it's not gone forever.
I've been wondering about the Guntank as well. Haven't seen a whit about it in months.
Holy crap, Bandai have announced a perfect grade Astray.


ugh. More manga garbage that real Gundam fans can care less about. I know it makes sense to cater to the masses and make stuff for flashy new crowd, but it's folks like me and other OG (original Gundam) fans that built the house Bandai lives in.
You know I'm still waiting for a Perfect Grade NT-1 with full armor. Why is the 0080 war in the pocket series so under appreciated.

...

Seriously, the Ass-tray? Where the hell is the PG GP-02 to pair up with my PG GP-01?! The RX-78 got a few Zakus, the Zeta got 2 MK II's, now the Strike Gundam gets and Astray. Will GP-01 forever be alone?

The Astray is one of the best modern Gundam designs so I cool with it.

My boycott will not end until the Guntank escapes from its prison in Bandai's basement.

That's no Zaku boy, no Zaku.

Check out how they finally solved the Gouf's skirt armor issues. A Gouf that can actually kneel is like a dream come true.
Nice gallery for the master grade GM ver 2.0: [gtoys.blog48.fc2.com]



HGUC Hi-Nu on the way.

Slowly but surely, every MG is getting a 'movable frame' treatment to meet the needs of greater poseability. Thank you, Gundam Mk-II!

How did they solve the skirt armor issue? I can't tell at all from the pictures.
It looks like they just gave it enough clearance to swing out to the side. The skirt is now just two pieces instead of the traditional four or five like a Zaku.
About the skirt.
