Gundamguy is also reporting the Dreissen (ZZ Color), unless that's something I'd missed previously -- was there a Unicorn version? (checking... yup, there is, how'd I miss that?)
Also, no surprise is a PG Astray Blue Frame. Only detail on the weapon load is a bazooka.

Turn X? Turn X!!!

Oh, and ZZ versions of the Dreissen and Doven Wolf, plus two Silver Bullet versions, more HGAC... but mostly muther****in Turn X! I'm with Xenosynth on this one, I want pretty much everything they just announced, aside from Phenex and Destiny Impulse. My wallet is going to take such a beating next year.

Actually, the two Silver Bullets are in one, thank the lord. At least, the way the preview pages show it, it seems to come with the GM head AND the Gundam head, so you can pick.

Then of course, there's the online exclusive Funnel Test Type. HOPEFULLY WITH ALL THIS DOVEN WOLF REUSE WE MAYBE GET A GUNDAM MK V!? MAYBE BANDAI! ((I HOPE THEY CAN HEAR ME!))

Both the Nu Gundam and Sazabi Ver.Ka have the shield positioning problem. Are there any alternative latches available for purchase? If not, what would be the easiest way to modify one?

While i love the MG X design, i think i may want to hold out for a X Maoh seeing as how they decided to do Build Mk II and Sengoku Astray in MG form :)

MG Phenex looks tempting. Surprised its not Bandai Hobby Online. May pick that up to complete the Unicorn trio.

Turn X is a surprise. Shocked no MG Geara Zulu to compliment MG Jesta. Or Jegan for Geara Doga for that matter.

Couldn't care less about the HGCE Strike mold. At that point i might as well buy the RG. But HGAC Wing Zero looks better in HG form than Wing.

Problem solved! The Sazabi shield can be fitted onto the shoulder in the same manner as the Sinanju, though I am not sure about the weight issues.

Okay, either I didn't noticed it before, or the information is indeed just came out, but the MG version of the Universe Booster is dated for March release- for 2800 yen. Plavsky wing, and Plavsky Power Gate will be included.

No info about MG Star Build Strike. So as for now, purchasing MG Build Strike + this Universe Booster is the way to go. Well played Bandai..

There is a rumor circulating that Crossbone X-1 is next from HGUC :)
Yay!

I've been wanting to get that upcoming Crossbone X-1 Kai RD. Makes me wonder how long it'll be till we get a Full Cloth variant.

Thunderbolt Gundam/GM have pretty good articulation but the Zaku is quite limited except for the shoulders.

Deal breaker for the Sazabi, weight issues with the shield as it causes the upper torso to sway to one side, just like the Gyan.

Are you sure about that? Dalong and several others have seemed to have no problem getting it to stand up straight.

Overall, in terms of video reviews, I see people mention that it's either good or okay in terms of the shield as well.

Iono, I guess that just seems odd to me as a deal breaker, since I've found weight issues regarding shields like that tend to be easy to fix with some positioning.

As said, proper posing can help alleviate issues with tilting. An action base of some sort would be great too, as the kit's mounting point is on the back under the backpack (something I'd wish more kits would do, makes posing without leaning a lot easier).

I dunno, he's the first one I've seen with a really big problem with it. Even on the MAHQ Facebook group, Eric Kortschak's build of it posed with the shield is fine and he didn't make any complaints about it. Not only that, but he has the shield hanging even further away from the Sazabi, and it has no trouble with leaning.

Edit:
http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2014/01/m ... am-gg.html

"The Sazabi does a good job supporting the big and bulky weight of the shield. It’s able to spin around and has an added point of articulation that allows it to swing outward, though I’m not sure the use. "

GundamGuy's reviewers also haven't had the same issue as the guy in the video, so I dunno.

Gundam Guy just posted a ful review of the Robot Spirits Hi-Nu Gundam.

In a word, near-perfection. My only complaint is that it's beam sabers are not the full double beam-sabers like the MG kit.

Things never to say/ask on MAHQ:

Did Char and Amuro Really die?
I think Wing is better than UC.
Really, are Char and Amuro Dead?
Gundam Seed Destiny was a great show, better than Turn A!
Where can I find Gundam hentai?
Seriously people, did Char and Amuro die or not!?

Lineart accurate Robot Damashii, like Dunbine.

Are there any other 2D lineart driven Robot Damashiis?
