That X came out of NOWHERE! I very nearly did a spit-take when I saw the prototype. So pumped for it - I've always dug the basic X design, and now I'm glad I held off on the HGAW.

Man, I have got my monthly MG allowance set for the next like...3 months.

I didn't hold off on the HGAW GX. Or X-Divider. Nor do I plan to hold off on Double-X. And I'll be getting X Maoh, too.
BUT F*** YEAH MG X! I'm getting that puppy, for sure. And if they're doing X, it's dollars to donuts they're gonna do at least X-Divider - I mean, it recycles the entire main body of the kit fer chrissakes.

Silver Bullet isn't too surprising since it's largely the Doven Wolf with a new head and some accessory swapping. Definitely predicting some Assault and Buster variants for the V2 that we're finally getting and, well, what can you say about MG Gundam X other than 'hell yes!'?

Have to see what they do about the satellite cannon panels. If they aren't chromed they'll probably need paint to really look good; a nice coat of silver with an overlay of diluted clear blue should do the trick. And yeah, given the amount of part reuse an eventual MG X Divider is also probably likely, especially if they split the backpack parts among separate trees.

Wait a min....In context of the show, the Build Strike is a modified HG Strike Gundam kit, and not a "real" gundam pre say. If there will be a MG Build Strike, so does that mean it will be Sei mid-series upgrade?????

Well....no. The fight system is for 1/144-like size. So the thing is out of story context, just another MG...which has to say that the correct ratio of scale may be 144/100, not 1/100 :D

I'm having a hard time getting the least bit excited about the Sazabi ver Ka. Sure, it's better than the old one... but compared to the Sinanju, it still looks clunky and awkward.

Is the HG Build Strike a completely new mold? If that's the case then the HG Cosmic Era Strike release will be a rehash of it.

As with most MS, it's an aesthetic thing. If you don't like the look of the verKA, chances are you're not a huge fan of the Sazabi in general. And, I mean, that's fair; not every mech is everyone's cup of tea. I actually prefer the Sinanju too (though I do really dig the bulk of the Sazabi - it just exudes power, as far as I'm concerned).

I am VERY excited to diorama it with my Nu verKA. And if it's anything like that kit construction wise, it's gonna be a treat to build.

Erm, quick correction:

It's an HGBF for the GM Sniper K9, in the background card it says it's a build fighters design.

BUT OTHERWISE!

Amazing list of awesome >=o
I want most of these kits ;~;
Also online exclusive Byarlant 2.

Oh, you're right thanks for the correction. Also edited Turn X, which turns out to be a MG. Now that's amazing!!

Oh, and also, 5 other HGs:
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-jlbOm5UOYTs/U ... 0lcn0h.jpg
You have those three(Norn Destroy, FA Unicorn Destroy (red psychoframe), Kshatriya Repair), and then the FA Unicorn Destroy Mode with Green Psychoframe in HGUC.

Also, the Zaku II HM from Thunderbolt is also announced.

Overall, pretty damn nice.

Edit: And SD Build Strike, and some new BB Senshi. Jeez. Usually they have all htese in order now, I didn't realize the site was still updating @[email protected] ANd actual pictures of the Qubeley Papilon on Gundam Guy.

Destiny Impulse and Phenex and Byarlant Unit 2 in Bande Desinee and Normal colors, all online exclusives. And then a bunch of those shiny/clear piece ones that I couldn't care less about.
