    Nothing yet. I'm watching both sites too for the same reason. I'd expect it to go live sometime this month, next week at the earliest based on their routine of posting preorders between the 15th to19th.

    About the Flag: I have a feeling it was more for making the original Flag from the looks of it. You see the gate marks for the display figures, the face, rifle and saber parts, and hands. The B Runner would be replaced entirely, since it has the leg parts and head fins that would be different on a normal Flag.

    Exia: I remember that's been everyone's main gripe but feel like I'm the only person whose Exia's ankles weren't a problem. Even so, add it to the revision list for a 1.5 kit, along with the NECK.
    Meanwhile, you reiterate the very reason why I think a 2.0 kit is out of the question right now. Too many retools of the kit in CURRENT circulation that prove the existing mold seems to be holding up. If we see a Master Grade "GRAHAM GUNDAM!!" Exia Repair 4, then that's it for this mold. Give Bandai a few more years, closer to an anniversary year of the series, and we might see a revised kit.

    One thing I forgot to mention in my last post, with regards to expanding the 1:100 scale 00 line as companion kits to the Master Grades, is we might see a Full Mechanics Tieren Taozi if things continue in that formula. She is on the box for the MG Kyrios after all.

    That's because it's such a small market... and the rightsholders have no faith in the franchise. o_O 
    These fan-produced resin kits were a real fly-under-the-radar production, and only 30 were originally solicited.

    They're designed to be fixed-pose kits, but I'm used to articulated Gunpla...

    ...so I added some aftermarket joints to ensure posability. :cool:

    Thanks for your interest! :D

    @tekering ah I see. Shame, would've liked some more Bioroids to mess with, the old Matchbox one is quite limited after all.... But hey, early to mid 80's engineering right?

    Spectacular work man.
    100% well-deserved. It's gotta be such an honor to have gotten the critique and praise from Meijin Kawaguchi himself. :)

    While I'm here, I should be getting shipping info for these soon[​IMG]prebuilt but whatever, gonna have myself a wing of five of these led by my Dark Matter Exia.

    Built a 30MM 1/144 Alto (purple) kit and tried out acrylic and chrome paint markers for the first time. It is a bit of a learning curve, but this was a fun starter... I'll probably grab more of these Alto kits as they are really solid and a good entry point to customizing... The accessories seem to love these mecha.

    I forget... did you ever go back and fix the incorrectly painted pistons on the underside of the turtle-shell? :D 
    Either way, truly #GunplaGoals

    ---===---

    Onto my own progress; things have been slow on my MG F90 II recently.
    I'm sad that my "group build" isn't actually happening; my buddy who was supposed to build the F90 alongside my F90II has made ZERO progress since snap-fit it about a month ago, mainly due to his wedding coming up in about a month from now. Consequently, I've had to help him out with stuff (I'm his best man), so progress on my my work has been slower than usual.

    Anyways, all the "white" parts are done. Went with a dark blue-gray instead of the standard white or off-white.
    I went with mostly the stock decal layout, but used all aftermarket decals; the stock ones were all black or red, and I was worried they wouldn't contrast well on the dark blue-gray.

    Only have the inner-frame parts left to go!

    Can't wait to see how you handle the Beyond Global Gold trophy. Unless you put it in a sealed case!

    Have you learned nothing of the man's habits in the time he's posted here?

    He's obviously going to mask the absolute shit out of it and airbrush it like a madman. And then when friends/family ask, he's going to insist somebody else did it.

    Is this a direct sequel to MSG Hathaway? I enjoyed that movie way more than I expected, excited for more.
