  1. I knew it, why else would they release a HGAC Leo out of the blue if not to be used for some Build Divers custom as well.

    1. Well, a lot of us were assuming we would get a HG Tallgeese Revive-ish release since the bodies are pretty similar (and canonically related in fluff).

    2. They may eventually, but with the RG Tallgeese coming out at about the same time I think it's safe to assume Bandai will wait awhile to let that stew. Build Fighters on the other hand has made a pattern of following up on out-of-the-blue, non-standard HG releases with a variant of their own(or vice-versa), and the HGAC Leo fits the criteria for that pattern, and well... here we have it!

    3. Leo is way smaller MS than Tallgeese so it still doesn't make sense that they will make an HG Tallgeese Revive-ish out of it.

    4. Gundam Wiki lists it as a 1.4M difference in height (and the Tallgeese has the crest that adds part if not all of that height) - not too crazy to preclude a HGAC Tallgeese I think.

    1. This kit is too nonsensical to be a p-bandai (as if bandai isn't nonsensical enough)

  3. Oh hey, these are pretty cool. And hey, they have the mounting shoulder armor for a dober gun in one picture!

    1. Well Divers is like a giant 10 vs 10 battle or something, gotta have some cannon fodder y'know.

  6. A Maganac head option... I dunno whether to be pleased or agitated.

    1. I'm pleased as all get-out. It looks fantastic to me.

      Though, I just hope there's going to be extra parts enough to make the standard Leo head in this kit, like with the Origin Zaku kits having spare parts meant for other variant kits. I love that this Leo design has a backpack in comparison to the HGAC vanilla Leo, so I was hoping to buy a second and use the new colors and call it a Riot-model Leo or something.

    2. I'm just concerned about what a Maganac head option on this kit means for a potential future Maganac model. Does it mean that the actual Maganac HGAC model is on the horizon, or is this our stand-in for that and that's it?

  7. The gm 3, kapool, and Gn-x are grunt suits. Was hoping for more gundam designs

    1. Well, there's also the Grimoire and the Ghiraga's not a Gundam.

      I actually like that these MS are getting custom versions, especially the GM3.

      Though I get where you're coming from. Build Fighters had 6 of 9 of its first kits as Gundams while Try had 5 of 9.
      This is the lowest ration of gundams in the subgenre so far. Even GunplaBuilders had 4/6 releases being gundams, 6/8 if you count Beginnings D and J.

    2. The other Build Fighter series were LOADED with Gundam designs. There's more to Gunpla than Gundams you know. I like that there's more variety here.

      DID YOU KNOW the original Mobile Suit Gundam only had ONE Gundam in it? Scandalous!

      Delete
    3. Not all mobile suits were gundam. Heck, it's probably a lot of mobile suits weren't a gundam (except maybe SEED and 00)

  8. Need 8 of these to go with the 2 Leo's I already ordered. My poor wallet :(

    ReplyDelete
  9. Damn, 4 heads but only 3 types of shoulder armor? I call bullshit
    Unfortunately now that I've seen this, I'm stuck buying 8 of these to go with the 2 Leo's I already have on order.

  10. The new knee joint on these guys is great,I hope they use it from now on.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes but there were almost a dozen seperate active Gundam units during the One Year War. I love Gundams! Is that a crime??

  12. Looks like these are the Build Divers equivalent of the Mocks and Hi-Mocks.

  13. Wish a major character in one of the Build shows would use an Alex, so we could finally get an Alex Revive kit.

  14. That one-eyed head sure looks like death army (dark army) from G gundam.


    Well if that's the case, i would like to see this model kit in death army or maybe maganac color scheme.


    You know what, with only recoloring this kit with two types of brown (light and dark, whatever shade it is) and maybe a bit of red and/or green for the eyes and some little details, this thing would look like both death army and maganac.
