    徹底解説!カトキハジメ氏が描いた、幻の「ウイングガンダム(EW版) Early Color ver.」とは? : TAMASHII NATIONS公式ブログ..

    Alright so basically “Early Color Ver.” is just the term they used to refer to the EW version of the Wing Gundam at the time similar to how they use the term “Custom” for the Wing Zero despite not having a standard EW version of the Wing Zero. In any case, it seems the full release information will be revealed during TN2021 so we won’t have to wait that long for the final details.

    I’m still genuinely surprised we never got any merchandise for this color design when it was announced considering how it’s just asking to be made into toys.

    There’s subtle differences between the official version and early color version. The ears, skit armor and shoulders are different colors. I think the wings are too, so that pretty much guarantees another wing Gundam down the line lol.

    Without a doubt, the Wing Gundam has quite possibly had the most terrible naming conventions ever so far.

    Proto-Wing Zero Gundam

    literally just f*** off, man…

    Wow, I thought they were the same designs. Yes, it does look worse. The original GFFMC Wing Zero is real masterpiece of a figure, does everything I wanted a EW Wing Zero to do.

    I would have preferred this version. It retains the unique original TV look but is still somewhat designed to fit in the Glory of Losers updated features.

    I’m praying to god we at least get a metal robot damashii of the Wing Gundam. As much as I like the Zero, I will always have a soft spot for this design.

    I think that’s coming. They seem to be on a Gundam wing run similar to the IBO run they just did. Wing Zero is dropping and Epyon will be announced soon. I couldn’t imagine them not doing a Talgeese (and it’s many variants) and Wing Gundam

    Nice catch.
    Having built the 2004 MG of this design a little under a year ago, I noticed the front and side skirts were different.
    Something looked different with the shoulder-armor, but didn't stand out to me, but I didn't notice the ears entirely.

    Tired of the Wing Gundam in GFF/MB, just wish Bandai would give us any of the other five Gundams, Tallgeese 1-3, and the Serpent so I can Army build.

    Rumors!

    Supposedly a new Metal Build silhouette that resembles a Crossbone Gundam, but uncertain, was teased in the December issue of Gundam Ace with the full reveal to be at TN2021.

    X-0 wouldn't surprise me. At least after that one I can be done with crossbones.

    There's also X-0 Full Cloth... though not sure if its worth it.. since it'll mainly be a color variant to the X-1 FC.

    Looks like a X-0 Full Cloth to me... at least they didn't go the route of - X-0... - a year later - X-0 FC...
