No clue. I'm just hoping against all hope for a RD Nightingale, and soon!
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!?

Man, I remember seeing all those late UC and Turn A RD pics 4 years ago on Ngee Khiong's blog. All I can say is: It's about time! :D

UPDATE:

Ladies and gentlemen, I come bearing with new images.

It is a shame that these Bandai shop exclusive recolors didn't get a color boxart.

The Zaku Cannon had the California Base background removed.

There is also Tallgeese II of course.

Man, those skinny little legs on Miss Sazabi do NOT go AT ALL with that upper body. Especially with those big, bulky arms.
Exia DM is just kinda meh. Oh look, it's a red-and-black, creepy-looking Gundam controlled by a bad guy *yawn*. Other than looking like some sort of demented cross-breed of Astraea F2 and Virsago, not that interesting to me either. Mind you, it's more or less par for the course as far as BF is concerned, but at least Build Gundam MkII, Star Build Strike, or Wing Fenice looked cool. Even Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum's custom GM Sniper is pretty nifty-looking.

These two IMO are just kinda bland.

They look MUCH better there than in the promo pics!

But, bleh, swappable hand blocks. We had a pretty good thing going with the 2.0 style hands, if they didn't want to go full 3.0-style; wonder why that dropped in favour of this? It's far from a deal-breaker, but I dunno, they just don't sit great with me.

I think it has to do with the kit's size. Most other MS that have modern MGs that have swappable hands are the smaller ones like the MS from Wing. The Gundam X would be one of these units, I believe, since it's smaller than an average unit (17 meters).

Probably because many people find the Astray-type hands are annoying (like me) and prefer the fix-type swappable fingers because it can be poseable better? I don't know when it started (the Wing EW kits?), but most EW kits, AGE kits, and modern SEED kits are all swappable fingers.

I agree with Kratos....the SEED MG's from the HD remaster project didn't really need the swapable hands. But eh i've pretty much just come to expect it for the AU Gundam shows.

The MG X can do the complete transformation for the shield rifle's shield mode. I am sold on that more than the clear parts. XD
Signature to be determined later...look! A Puppy!

It also has nicely detailed inner frames. Almost make me not want to cover it with outer shells. It even has 103 on Dalong. 103! That's higher than the Wing kits :)

I'm building the X right now, and the sight on the beam rifle doesn't seem to easily flip up. I will fold down fine, but I actually have to remove the part to flip it up without breaking it (the stress mark is already showing). I've tried disassembling it and putting it back together but no dice.

Otherwise, it's a great kit.

Largest (Vertical) standing model ever. Both excited and... curious to see how it'll work out.

If they are accurate to specs, the HGUC Dendrobium should actually be a bit longer (Neo Zeong's height is about 115 meters, the Dendrobium's length, from cannon end to the back, is 140 meters), but the Dendrobium is also nowhere near as thick and meaty as the Neo-Zeong.

X1, X1Kai, Skullheart, Full Cloth, X2, X2Kai, X3, X0 from the same frame.

The milking will never end, though I see 1 or 2 as Web Shop exclusives
