So, when are they gonna announce the final verdict on this?
What are the chances of the bellpepper getting chosen?
>mod for best results
I have one of each, unconstructed, and am in the midst of spraying several of the grey parts on the Nightingale white to better match the colors to the original.
Really? I thought it looked very close to the new lineart (which was decently faithful to the original) and had really really nice detail. I can agree about the MKIII though. New lineart strayed way too far from the proportions of the MSV and they made some weird proportion choices. It's still a good kit though despite no FA.
re/100 leo makes sense
the only kits we ever got of leo were the shitty 144 scale lm model and the b-club 1/100 brick both long gone and discontinued
No way lol...
The lineart is bulky and Zeonish. The actual kit is Seed streamlined. Worst RE100, ever!
But I believe it's intentional, since Bandai has Robot Spirits Dijeh planned.
Go look up one of the usual hobby magazines, they have a special issue on how to mod NG.
Off the top of my head, you can mod the skirt arms, add panel lines, sharpen some of the edges. If you could do just a few it would look very good. OOB however it's pretty plain.
The wings couldn't lift up like the China bootleg one is a big letdown. But overall this RE100 is decent.
This is the lineart I was talking about
Compare the legs.. it's night and day
Looking at the Dijeh on my shelf, I concede there are proportional differences, but it's hardly SEED skinny. It's still a great kit in my opinion. Never noticed how much more panel lining the lineart had.
Reborns deserves one as well in all honesty. Zeonic designs and MSV are harder designs for bandai to sell kits of so it's logical for them to not get MGs, but a main villain Gundam of a TV series piloted by a character voiced by Touru Furuya? Shit doesn't make sense, yo.
You didn't look at the back of your Dijeh kit didn't you? Try again.
This proportion / Seed like problem has been spotted very early on when Bandai first showed the prototype. People were hoping Bandai would fix this BS but nope it's final.
Entirely Bandai's fault. But as I said it's probably intentional so people would buy both RE100 Dijeh (got pissed) then buy Robot Spirits Dijeh (which is expensive).
RE/100 hasn't been doing a very great job of capturing lineart in general. It's, well, like a HG. You get something that looks a fair bit like the original design, but if you really look close you can see differences all over. There's a reason you're paying less, basically.
And like HGs there's the occasional near perfect rendition. Just look at RE/100 Nightingale, it basically nails the original lineart.
It's just the original lineart looked like shit.
And also like HG, there's the occasional "how the fuck did THIS get accepted?"
I'll admit I don't get the point of the RE/100 line, would rather they just get HG kits instead(especially since the scale difference means that RE/100 kits don't really fit in with any other line well)
Because Jegan isn't a popular design (note: it's an enthusiast favourite but doesn't mean it will sell). This is evident from the HGUC release: only 3 / 9 have made it to regular release, the rest are PB exclusives.
Sorry to say but Jegan is likely getting a RE100 instead of MG release simply because not enough people are buying. /m/ will rage, yes, but Bandai apparently don't want your money.
As Derringer at one point pointed out, Bandai wants to continue its business model of continuously re-issuing released kits. The problem they face is that they run out of designs that would fit into this model and their catalogue is getting bigger and bigger (over 3k).
So Bandai comes up with this plan. For the niche design, it's either going onto PB as exclusives for limited issue (thus being excluded from the regular re-issue model) or producing them as a lower cost (which is what is becoming RE100).
Quite to the contrary, the other 3 RE100 (NG, MK-III, GP04) does a decent job in capturing the proposed lineart (note: this is not the same as their MSV counterpart). Dijeh stands out as the only RE100 that pretty much ignored the lineart previously released. (The reason behind this is to everyone's guess. My guess would be due to marketing.)
GP04 is particularly great. If anyone wants to get into RE100, this is the one kit to get.
I don't think thats the reason.The F-91 Jegans did not even have kits when the movie released. The other 6 "variations" are just not different enough to merit a full release. Having 3 HGUC actually shows that it's a fairly popular design. I think it's more economics. Bandai is definitely winding down on MGs except for the most popular designs with interesting gimics. RE/100 and regular series 1/100 is going to replace most MGs from now on.
It's cute how you obsess over a warped phone camera picture of a magazine page.
The skirt armour did get smaller, I guess, and I don't know the head might be bigger.
It's HGFC you tard.
I pretty much can't muster any praise for MK-III at all because of how absurdly fucked it looks.
Like I guess it's cool if it captures the concept art? But that concept art is some god awful bastardized hybrid of the Okawara and Katoki designs that maintains neither of their charms. It's just horrid.
I dunno about predictions, but I'm really pulling for Rig Contio.
Z-MSV designs are all legitimately rough as fuck and rather impossible to make into 3D as is considering how self-contradictory they can be even. Mk-III is pretty close to what I would expect it to look like had it been animated. (and it's not quite the same as the art anyways)
Right and an ant pic helps? hey QTpie, wanna dance?
Seriously just accept that RE100 Dijeh is foobar (just look at the damn legs, and turn your kit backward and look.. it's Seed all over again).
Bandai has another agenda for it just because Amuro piloted it and it is going to sell. Not the first time Bandai plays this card really.
Me neither. MK-III not my cup of tea at all, the colour is gross and the lack of FA option is wtf.
If they model it after the GFF MK-III and provide FA option I would bite it no problem.
Beats getting kits of things that fall into "things that should be MGs", "things that have already have better kits by third parties", and "even more SEED, 00, and OYW shilling".
Not him, but I've heard the rumor before myself and looked it up. Of course though, there was nothing official backing this. That said it would make sense to release it when they do the TV remaster for Unicorn
But the Unicorn is a special case tho. It's got a shit ton of redesigns and different versions because it's the main mech of it's franchise. It's naturally designed to be milked to the bone.
I'll never get why they keep neglecting the bellpepper even when it's one of the most beloved machines of Gundam Unicorn.
When they clean out the space rats obviously.
