    Hi gang,
    I'm late to the party here, but I hear that MG Heavyarms Custom is getting a rerelease this month on P-Bandai. Is it still possible to get a (pre)order with P-Bandai for this, or might there perhaps be some available right at launch?
    All the open preorders I'm seeing are about 30% higher to cover, I assume, shipping to the store and then their profit.
    Thanks for answering my naive questions :)

    I think it's the angle of the silhouette showing both wings overlapping, but I'm more of a mind to think they're emulating the way the wings spread on the Master Grade.

    There's a 'rib' that links the split binders together.

    orders have either since closed or sold out, so you're out of luck paying sticker price. Right now you could either import it for a slightly higher price (but not as bad as certain american retailers selling it) or pray bluefin opens up preorders again for a later down the line release.

    The aesthetic impact of the Fixed Flight System.
    I still like it because it finally exists. The colors throw me off though because I remember all the other versions of Xi having more blue in its midsection. I suppose we'll see a retool recolor for the second and third film.
    -
    In the meantime no new pictures of what's on the bench right now but out in the field, the newest model Qubeley is really shining!

    The spread-out shaped wings may be part of a gimmick with this new TV Wing Gundam kit (Just like the opening back-thrusters gimmick on the RG Tallgeese)

    That won't be impossible, but the silhouette has a blue visor (While the BD Unit 01 was always depicted with either a green or red visor)

    I think the blue-visor silhouette is more likely to be a new Strike Dagger kit, As releasing it to be a rival kit makes sense for the teased Mobile GINN kit as well (Just like how the HGAC Maganacs are released not too long after the Leo)

    I looked again, and I think you're right. but I can dream....Nonetheless, what it is remains to be seen.

    Meanwhile, I'm starting to think the GINN is a Master Grade. It looks too detailed to be an HGCE model.

    Huh. I can't really tell.

    Added to the list: not only does he have superior skills, Halden has the eyes of a GOD.

    Oh my god. The mad men actually did it. HG NIGHTENGALE.

    And even better - GUNDAM GREMORY! Maybe we might actually get all 72 Calamity War Gundams before the heat death of the universe. And the armored legs and 'super mode head' for Gundam Dantallion.

    Nightingale gun looks a little bit small but I am hyped anyway!

    Don't like the ugly new detail. While it look better than HG, MG Ka is still the best plastic version.

    We finally get MKV in plastic form. It's not ugly and Robot Spirits done a much better job, BOTH TIMES!

    The way the armor looks like it is sagging is a definite hint of Nadleh!

    WOW!!
    That is a LOT of incredible and unexpected decisions and really making up for the drought of Master Grades this year. The MkIV?? Whoohoo, score one more for the Sentinel collection! MG Ginn *AND* a same scale Calamity? It says "1:100 SEED" but has the ball jointed thumb you would think it is a Master Grade.

    That Wing Gundam looks awesome with that color separation and the way the wings expand. It makes sense since nearly all of the other XXX-G Gundams are getting HG kits.

    Seems like the Dom is continuing the pseudo 1.5 treatment of kits like the refit Ex-S. Might just finally get me to build one now!

    I have a sniper's eye for detail is all. I'll be completely honest, I didn't fully expect to get proven right about a few of these. Identifying the Ginn was just a matter of the colored details, but Wing Gundam's wings are a lot more elaborate than I expected.
    I humbly concede being COMPLETELY wrong about that Dagger I was hoping to be Blue Destiny Unit 1.

    I saw the GundamKitsCollection.com announcement and the first comment was someone saying "someone on Discord" said Hi Nu and Nightingale, but I almost brushed that off as a bogus rumor... now I know better.

    Honestly I like where that HiNu is going, it certainly has a robust amount of detail to it like a certain third party HG "Gundoom" model based on it. The render shows the colors are going to be impressive, gold colored joints and integrating the HiNu's 'striped' Fin Funnels into the mold injected part separation is something else!

    I'm a sucker for more F90 but this is just F90 with its own colored Intercept Pack although that lance is brand new.

    Edit: Page 2 of the Dengeki Hobby report..
    F90 Unit 2, basically an inverted color scheme of blue on white.

    more G Unit armor packs are inbound too!

    Definitely going to need to consider if I can get the Gundam Mk. V, that thing looks super unique. And, yeah, Sentinel automatically elevates the desirability factor by a zillion.

    Pale Rider Cavalry...I dunno. The composite Shiekrah multi-launcher weapon is neat and it has a new backpack with single ejectable fuel tank, but I think I'll need to see color samples before I can make a decision there. Already got Space Type Pale Rider and Todesritter coming next year so I don't need another Pale Rider.

    And Geminass 02 Land Battle, might pass on this since I already have the stock Geminass 02 locked down alongside the Vayate/Mercutius for next year as well. Though if the price is right, I might get it anyway, use the stock 02 for the stock Geminass version, and have the combined Space/High Speed armor form on the 01. I do like having options.

    The Dagger L also looks great, though part of me hopes this means we'll eventually get Slaughter Daggers.

    So they're releasing 1/100 SEED models again, suddenly? And not just a Calamity (that's missing its shield/double cannon) but a Strike Freedom? Odd.
    Virtue is a must-get, and maybe i'll get the Ginn.
    I wish Calamity was MG though.
