  3. Is the price fair? I do recall both the doven wolf and original Silver bullet being about 600 yen cheaper...

    1. It is using a new head, back pack,the unicorn rifle, and 6 arms in total. So yeah it is fair in my book.

    2. Yeah, well, it's also not using the old beam gun/launcher, the old head(s), the old back pack, the old shoulder, the old upper arms, the old front skirt, the old belly (maybe), the old feet, which are divided into separated runners completely apart from the runners that contain the waist, most of the legs and lower arms which are the only things in common between 4 designs/kits.
      What I'm trying to say is while half of the runner of the old kits will be kept, the other half will most likely be replaced completely for the new parts, and since the amount of new added parts are not that much more than that of the old ones, the price of 500-600 yen higher is not really fair

    3. Why are you so sure about that. Even if it is true that this kit lacks spare parts, the improved articulation and proportion is all what it need. This is so close to the robot spirits silver bullet which is like 8 times more expensive, and by the look of it, it will have little to no polycap

    4. "Why are you so sure about that". Have you seen the runners of Doven Wolf/ Silver Bullet? The only thing in common between those and this version are the lower arms, legs and waist, which are on runners completely separate from the rest, i.e there are no head, torso, upper arm, feet, backpack parts on those runner.
      So it's reasonable to predict that aside form those runners, the rest will be replaced completely, meaning you just exchange some old runners for new ones (that contain the "improved articulation and proportion") with a little bit higher amount of plastic. And that "little bit" shouldn't cost us 500 yen.
      And about that "it will have little to no polycap" thing, I can almost guarantee that 80%-90% of the old polycap will remain in the exact same place as before.

    5. It's possible that a lot of the kit is going to be an entirely new mold, so the parts we get out of that will probably add up to 2916 yen.

    6. Alright, I take back my words, this kit indeed worth that much. I completely underestimated the resourcefulness / wastefulness of Bandai. They reuse and sacrifice the E1 and F runners, which have a combined number of around 60-70 parts only to use 13 of them. No wonder the price is this high.

  4. 600 yen more for New parts and obvious leftover from doven/silver

    1. I hate to be that guy but there won't be much left from the doven/ silver bullet kits if not any at all

  6. Tfw the spare arms doesn't have any articulations

    1. Well, that's HG for you. Although if you were doing a straight build, the extra arms wouldn't need articulation anyways. One of the extra arms looks like it has articulation though.

      Delete
    2. It quites easy to duplicate parts or you can get 4 of them and bring them into a fist fight with Unicorn like in the Bandee Desinee.

  7. They designed a system to replace the arm that gets damaged each time it fires the beam magnum... why not just design a stronger arm?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'll probably get the kit and scratch build a beefy arm and lose the extra arm mechanic.

      Delete
    2. Exactly my thoughts, and it would be way more cooler if those arms were actually wire controlled shooting & grabbing stuff incom style

      Delete
    3. maybe they had a lot of leftover arms laying about in the workshop, anyway I like the unconventional approach to the "this gun's kickback is too strong for this machine" problem.

      Delete
    4. Not a Silver Bullet / Doven Wolf expert here but if their original design intend is to have detachable forearms weapons that are prone to damage, the idea of the spare arms system to compensate for the OP beam magnum is not completely insane. The SB/DW MS teams probably have a few spare arms for sorties anyway.
      On the other hand, why not detune the weapon down a notch or choose another weapon that are less destructive to the MS itself?

    5. What if Banagher just love sound of beam magnum so much he won't separate from it? Or he need it for penetrate Neo Zeong II's i-field which normal output beam riffle can't do.

      Delete
    6. Banagher hated using the magnum before opting for Gatlings... what changed?

      Delete
    7. Isn't he just use gatling because he was in Palau and shooting magnum around there will be more catasthropic than using standard riffle? After back to Nahel Argama he using magnum as always.

      Delete
    8. If a lolibot can shoot it without issue, a big, dark, and handsome machine should be able to, as well.

    9. You should consider the fact that Minerva Faction is neutral, in the Unicorn BD it stated that they are hiding among the He-3 site which mean they are short on supplies. There are many Silver Bullet and Doven Wolf lie in the ruin of Laplace box site and use their arm to use the most powerful beam riffle yet in the UC timeline (Inculde Crossbone and f91). “Make a better arm” you said, is that the arm that bare fisted mobile suits, punch a hole in Silver Bullet squad in the Bandee Desinee and wreck Neo Zeong like a piece of cake. That’s fine to me :D

      Delete
  8. it seems to me he has extra hands because the hyper beam magnum is to grave a weapon for normal mobile suits to will and so he has extra hands just in case they get destroyed by the recoil of the hyper beam magnum but sadly seems to me only one of the spare hands is mobile and the rest have fixed joints.sigh.... cant really blame them since its just a high grade and to keep the price down

  9. i seriously dont understand anything about this...at all..why?...

    1. Banagher can't use the unicorn anymore since it was dismantled Wink wink so when he intervenes in the fight between zoltan in the Neo Zeong II and Jona in the Narrative C Packs he uses a customized silver bullet wielding a beam magnum. The beam magnum fires a shot equal to 4 regular beam rifle shots at the expense of a whole e clip. The Unicorn mobile suits are the only known mobile suits shown to handle this weapon. When Riddhe used it to kill Loni Garvey in the shamblo it made his delta plus malfunction. To get around this problem Banagher uses a customized silver bullet that still uses the beam magnum but his suit is equipped with extra arms and a sub arm unit to switch out arms since the beam magnum is so powerful it literally makes the arms explode.

      Delete
    2. While I can understand that, but why using the beam magnum at all? I get that they need that "1 shot equals 4" to penetrate the field protecting Neo Zeong II, but a shot from a shield beam launcher of a standard Silver Bullet would be enough. Sure, it's a toned down version of the 12.5 MW beam launcher of the Doven Wolf, but the output shouldn't be that much lower. Or is it that "concentrated" part that they need? If so, shouldn't 4 wired hands shooting 4 beam shots at the same time at the same place on the field be enough?

      Delete
    3. There's one factor that make beam magnum superior than silver bullet's launcher: speed. SB launcher can have high output, but still slower than beam magnum. One of full frontal bodyguard died just because he grazed with one of magnum shoot and that shoot barely hit the suit, only miss few inch iirc then the suit exploded. It's like Unicorn always bring handled warship-class main beam cannon, with better penetration speed.

      Delete
    4. Speed? You mean the speed of beam shots, as in the time it takes for a beam shot to travel from point A to point B? I don't recall that sort of speed has been establish to hold any significance since all beam shots have speed said to be near light speed? 'Course, there are VSBRs, but I have a hunch they mistook "speed" of a beam shot for its "density". And if it's "density" that matters, then, like i said, 4 wired hands shooting 4 beam shots at the same time at the same point should be enough

      Delete
    5. i feel like the most logical would be to make sure the beam magnum can still cause a certain damage to the neo zeong, as u can recall the neo zeong has an i-field, which makes the beam reflect and hit the neo zeong(full frontal ver.) at its fuel tank. For the arms i would think its probably much more easier to maintain rather than purposely making a new arm system to accomodate it, as by this time, the sleeves group rather avoid anymore unwanted conflict

      Delete
    6. And that SB's cannon drain energy from its generator, shoot 4 cannon at once only for break I-field is a stupid decision if I say. Better compensate it with spare hand and handled beam cannon with energy cartridge than make suit a deadweight later.

      Delete
  10. So this is the mobile suit that Banagher was demoted to using after the Unicorn Gundam is sealed away? I think it would be cool if Bandai made a Real Grade of this to go with the RG Unicorn.
