Recent MGs

I want to share my opinion about recent MGs, let's talk about MG for April is MG Wing Gundam, the May MG is Shin Musha Gundam MKII, the June MG is FA Gundam, the July MG is V Dash Gundam ver Ka/V Core Booster ver Ka, the August MG is The-O, and the September MGs is Deathschyte ver Ka [well they didn't confirm it, but based on the design, I'm sure it will be ver Ka, though I really hope for Deathschyte Hell OVA ver].

Firstly I know that all of the MGs are awesome, but I think it's odd that Bandai only give 6 MGs for a whole six months? Usually Bandai often released 2 MGs at once for a month. So, basically my curiosity will be, What is the hidden MG[s]? [well maybe there will be 1 or 2 more MGs for this next three months right?]

Before we talking about that, let's take a peek about our recent MGs that "catch" my eyes, starting from this one..

I ever said that I really fall in love with "tiny" MS, well I already got F91 and Crossbone Fullcloth, so Victory is my next target, preferable for V2, but after I saw V Dash, maybe.. just maybe I will get this guy.. lot's of weapon, great detail and very minimal in design [really like Katoki design because of it's simplicity yet detailed design].

The next target will be MG The-O, one massive MS that speed can't be underestimated. I fond of Z gundam design, but because I didn't collect them so I will skip this guy [and of course the cost is the main reason too]. Actually Titans has a lot of good MS that need to be MGfied, like Gaplant, Gabhtley, Hambrabi, Palace Athena, Messala.

As we can see, compared to MG Zeta gundam, Zeta gundam look small, I really want to compare this guy to MG Sinanju. Well eventhough I don't order this guy, at least I think MG Kshatriya is not impossible anymore eh? [Of course with an extreme price tag too].

Well, now let's take a look about recent candidate for the hidden MGs.

First, take look at Bandai MG Wishlist Survey top three last time. 00 Raiser,  V2 Gundam, and The-O. The-O really become a MG not long after that result is announced, so what next? V2 Gundam? maybe not, because I think it's too soon for Bandai to release another V variant [V Dash is recently released and Bandai said configuration technology still under development]. While The-O is already planned, so the possible left would be 00 Raiser. I think that maybe 00 Raiser will be out not so long after this, because strategically before 00 Qan[T] is rolling out, 00 Raiser is a main hit at gundam 00 series gunpla and this is a good time to release it to warm up the buyer for the upcoming 00 movie, also Bandai said that this MG realization is under study.

Second, besides 00 movie, we also have Unicorn OVA vol 2. Which is a good time for Bandai to release another MG from this series too.. MG Delta Plus? MG ReZel? or even MG Kshatriya? well this is really still a question mark for all of us.

Lastly, before I want to ask about your opinion of "Which MG should come at this three months?" I want to comment about the RG 1/144 RX-78-2. The RG really "own" anything eh? From detail, articulation, size [well small is a plus for me because of the space, while MG really takes lots of space], even the box art really look elegant. So, I will ask two opinion from you.
1. Which MG do you want to come at this next three months?
2. Will you get RG 1/144 RX78-2? and Will you choose RG over 1/100MG/ 1/144HG?


  1. wow nice blog hope u would like to visit mine also

  2. 1. None! Because I have no more money! 9_9; Kidding, I'll buy a MG 00R of course but I'm sure that won't be cheap. :s My own prediction is that it'll come out end of the year - November/December. If not, then early next year. A MG Sinanju would be awesome, but I think I'll stick to the HGUC instead. XD

    Also, I never noticed that the number of MGs released have gone down haha. Maybe they're turning their focus on 1/144 scale kits?

    2. Gotta be honest, I was very tempted by the RG, but in the end, I didn't get it, mainly because of cost reasons. I guess I do prefer 1/100 scale also, even if the 1/144 scale kits are getting better and better. I plan to pick up a RG kit one day though just to experience the building process, and I hope that Bandai will release more kits in the RG line. Will I choose RG over MG or HG? That is a tough question hehe, it all boils down to whether I like the MS in question enough to spend more money for a MG or a RG.

  3. Haha, those MGs don't interest me.... Actually I like THE O, but it is WAY too expensive for me.... I actually preordered the RG already. :D

  4. this month,or at the moment is slowly filling with crap Gunpla!! minus the SD there turning out better and sorry to burst your bubble its already decided its going with the original animation design, would have been better if OVA thoughT_T

    The 0 is tempting though^^ might get a TT hongli of it.

  5. @abhas: thanks, coin collector eh?

    @eva: whoaaa.. long time no see eva.. Yeah now that you mention it.. HG 1/144 are on the run.. They have lots of decent line up from Unicorn series, 00 side story, and 00 movie.. Hmm.. I think I should wait more of RG line up too eva, let's see they said Char's Zaku is their next line up.

    @Marzz: hahaha yeah, the interest factor isn't high. I only consider getting the MG V Dash and maybe MG Wing Zero OVA ver. Wow, now I will wait for your review marzz for the RG.

    @GunStray: yeah.. I but if we consider the wing gunstray, Wing also have the same pattern, Wing ver Ka is released before Wing Zero OVA ver.. So, is the Deathschyte OVA ver is possible?

  6. >> MaftyNavue: Hey if thats possible, then I so call Dibs on katoki/Ver ka Heavyarms, MG of my dreams^^

  7. I would go for Deatscythe... but I'll pass because I choose to buy airbrush, so I have to give up upcoming MG.

    for RG, I've had the PO from the time it showed at Shizuoka.

  8. hm... I definitely going to get MG 00R if they going to make it.. and Deathscythe also interested... I kinda like the design and scythe is badass :P.. if I buy it Wing will not be alone lol

    so far Im impressed with that RG, but ill wait till they do on MG which I'm interested.. not really fan of RX-78-2 ^^;;

  9. 1) I want an MG godzilla period! Of course an MG heavy arms will be a nice addition. Seems like Bandai is giving more focus to the HG series this year!

    2) Pre order right away after I saw the actual product!!!

  10. @GunStray: yeah.. Heavyarms really cool, preferable for OVA ver for Dual pew-pew..

    @Divinelight: orz.. another RG poison then hahaha...

    @Tsuki: yep, me too Tsuki, 00R is a must, while the Deathscythe, I think the Hell OVA ver will looks good when at display, so maybe I will wait and see first..
    orz, yet another RG poison..

    @Chubby: hahaha.. as expected from you, but who knows right?? MG Kamen Rider Cyclone Joker exist, everything isn't impossible
    That's it!! I'm in for RG!!

  11. Hi my first time here.

    well since Unicorn OVA eps 2 start, I am pretty sure it will be sinanju OVA ver,but since this blog named 'maftynavue' i am sure you hoping for Xi gundam right ??

  12. for that RG I won't pre-order wait for review of actual product first usually that kind of model kit is fragile

  13. @Aya: hi, thanks for visiting here..
    hehe.. you got me, sure I really want Xi Gundam but perhaps due to it's size and price [which will be very high of course], I can still hold my wish hahaha...

    hmm.. wait n see is a wise decision eh?

  14. I think MG production is going down because they have to focus their research on the amazing RG, as well as tons of HG that keeps burning our money :D And when they do make an MG, they make an expensive one T.T

    1. I want any bad guys from OO to become an MG

    2. Even though RG is darn amazing, but I think I won't get one, too complicated to customize with all those little parts, I prefer the cheap 1/144 HG :D (My opinion could easily changed if I suddenly have lots of money *pray*) LoL

  15. 1. definitely 00 Raiser master grade

    2. i prefer the simple 1/144 high grade than RG (because i already bought rx-78-2 30th annive...

    anyway nice blog, care to do link exchange? my blog is

    thank you very much.

  18. wah ad hendra.......tatut ah....

    for RG, I am exactly the same as chubbs, went to the same event and got poisoned directly XD

  19. @heat: haha.. kenal ya heat?

    orz... hard to resist.. I'm waiting for your review heat, but it looks like a great kit...

  20. @h4mster: woah.. forgot to reply you there hahaha...
