  1. Is MG Tristan going to be the P-Bandai variant of MG Alex 2.0? I feel like that is what Bandai has plans to do.

    1. RE/100 Zaku III. P-Bandai RE/100 Zaku III Twilight Axis + MG Tristan.

  2. Wonder how all that buff armor will affect the posibility, looks this as fuk. However I think I like the unarmored Alex more, just personal preference I guess.

  3. Doesn't this entail we'll be seeing a master grade Tristan as well?

  5. Seriously This is lacking of detail compare to what they did to RX-78-2 Ver3 or any of the real grades. This proportion looks exactly like the first OVA version 1/144. I'd assume they'd at least cut the knee plate to be into 2 pieces. Smaller shoulder guards and skirts needs to be smaller to make up with a more modern proportion. Wishing to have way more panel lines than it was. The join looks just like the high grade version back then. The fist is lacking of gesture. I used to be a big fan of Alex. I was hoping Bandai will do a redesign if they decided to make a ver2.0 or ver.ka. This is too disappointing after the F-91 Ver2.0

    1. Lmfao. 2.0s are always "simpler" in details, you entitled prick. At least on Universal Century's case.

  6. Something seems off with the head. I can't place my finger on it. The proportions are just a little wonky. Still great looking kit though.

    1. The head'w q little too tall. The 78-2's head looks a little wider from what I can tell.

  7. I dont like how the inner frame is super simple just like how the Jegan's was. Not even a sliding knee joint for a 2.0 kit smh.

    1. I'll take a simplistic design any day as long as the end product is great.

  8. I just noyiced the shoulder armor... are those the trash bags?! please don't bring back the trash bags... it's the only thing keeping me away from thunderbolt kits.
    Also for an upgrade this seems very lacking in the panel line aspect. I know it's not fair to compare stuff with resin kits but the IE Alex looks so much better that it makes this look like it came out 10+ years ago

    1. It's only for the shoulders to keep it OVA accurate. You don't have to use them if you don't want to, it doesn't hinder the construction of the shoulder joint.

      Also, most 2.0 kits with the exception of the Freedom have been lacking in Panel lines.

    2. You could use heat shrinking tubes and/or mesh instead.
      That's what I did with the thunderbolt kits; it's simple to use and the effect is much better than the "trash bags".

  9. People seriously need to understand MG 2.0 kits are meant to be ANIME ACCURATE! Meaning not a ton of panel lines and not a ton of proportion changes. All MG 2.0 kits focus on Anime Accuracy!

    1. And?
      They should have made a ver.ka instead then.

    2. First: Freedom 2.0 shouldn't even be considered a 2.0 per se, it's a drastic redesign that follows the Strike Ver.RM (Re:Manga) aesthetics.

      Second: Screw Long-legs

    3. Exactly, the FreedI'm 2.0 is based on the Aile Strike Remastered look.
      Some people are just stupid.
      Also the freedom 2.0isn't a UC Gundam.

  10. With that chobam mask and opening shield gimmick, hell yeah I'm getting this!

  11. This is insane! The armor mask is super freakin cool!

    ReplyDelete
  12. The alex is looking really good with that mask, I'll probably get this new. But I'm a bit worried that they're featuring the old Kampfer kit in the bottom promo. It's as if Bandai wont have any plans to update that kit.

  13. Well, I've been waiting 5 years for this after I was disappointed by the MG 1.0 Alex, and this was better than I could ever ask for. Just pre-ordered it, and I am stupid excited.

  14. It looks pretty good, I'll probably display it with half the armor on and half the armor popping off using pins.
