Naochika Morishita sure is busy this year

Comment by Rekkou

I beg to differ, MG Deathscythe isn’t of Endless Waltz and should be under Ver. KA tagline since this design appear in Katoki’s redesign work of Okawara’s. Also, this MG is 8 years late after the MG Wing Ver KA was released back in 2002 and only now Bandai release it for the celebration of Wing anniversary. Now why this is so much like a Backstreet Boy reunion gig? By turning G and Wing into serialized manga or novel for Gundam Ace, doesn’t this move show that Bandai is BANKRUPT OF IDEAS? I don’t think putting a butt over the Raphael’s head is NEW at all, it’s STUPID

Comment by Repoman

Sure is a cloud of hate above me… :/

Will be interesting to see how Raphael will rick-roll us this time. :>

Comment by Sgt. NoOb

@Sgt. NoOb
I think Rapheal’s gimick will be… it has no gimick. That would surprise me more than anything, I think.

Comment by injuredpelican

Oh boy… There still people who still don’t get about ‘EW’ tag…
And it’s won’t be ver.Ka just because it designed by Katoki…

Oh well.

Comment by pled

I’d be surprised if Raphael’s backpack DIDN’T turn into a second Mobile Suit, or if Raphael lacked a second form altogether.
As for Deathscythe, I’d rather go with a Master Grade of the version we saw in Endless Waltz, but that’s just me. That aside, this is clearly a Version Katoki Deathscythe.
In closing, Qan[T] snuck into Raphael’s box art. >v<

Comment by Gundam Sol

looking at the boxart make me want to have a remake version of Wing and Wing Zero using new frame technology :(

Comment by atlans89

Who cares if it is EW or Katoki or whatever,personally I find it looks great.And I’m loving the Delta Plus more and more everytime I see it.
Raphaels boxart looks nice too,and I don’t think it won’t have any gimmicks,wouldn’t make any sense.

Comment by Itamaki

Somehow now i think Delta Plus will have a good chance for MG in the future.

Comment by Yami

i love Wing series, i love Deathscythe, and i hope all the EW Early Type MSs will be released as MGs. Wing & Deathscythe are out, so let’s wait for Heavyarms (love the “real” gatling), Sandrock, & ShenLong.

HGUC Ball Twin Set

God dammit, why did I laugh?

Comment by Mentok_The_Mindtaker

Because we don’t take Balls seriously?

Comment by KamenRiderShinzo

Oh wait, I think I know why you really laughed…

Comment by KamenRiderShinzo

idea transformation of delta plus look similar with MVF-M11C Murasame:
-shield become nose in plane mode
-place to put rifle in plane mode/ MS mode
-position main wing
-hand, foot, head same positon with murasame in plane mode

i think katoki not using real plane as reference, officialy delta plus can fly in atmosphere, but with tiny wing, extremely tiny vertical wing, and wrong place for its canard wing, why it put in line with main wing? that funny

okawara was more understand about plane, using fit size forward swept wing, placing lifting canard in nose and highest from main wing

i know very difficult to make new idea of transformation, but using other designer idea with just minor modification (and his modification was wrong!)…..double fault!!

look like katoki really having fun just to redesign other work, and forget to improve his knowledge

Comment by rainy day

who need ball

Comment by tr

Who doesn’t?
And the Ball Twin set is a obvious joke from Bandai :P

Comment by Itamaki

tranformation method of delta plus similar with MVF-M11C Murasame:
-shiled become nose in plane mode
-place to put rifle in plane mode/MS mode
-position main wing
-hand, foot, head have same position with murasame in plane mode

i think katoki not using real plane as reference, officialy delta plus can fly in atmosphere, but with tiny wing, extremely tiny vertical wing, and wrong place for its canard wing, why it put in line with main wing? that funny

okawara was more understand abaout plane, using fit size forward swept wing, placing lifting canard in nose high from main wing

i know very difficult to make new method of transformation, but using other designer method with just minor modification (and his modification was wrong!)….double fault!!

look like katoki really having fun just to redesign other work, and forget to improve his knowladge

Comment by rainy day

Balls are good for certain dioramas. Say you want to re-create a scenes from A Baoa Qu or something, you’d need Balls, GMs, Zakus etc. lol

I kinda like Raphael, it’s the most unique looking of the four Gundams in the 00 movie.IMO

Comment by greengreen

probably Bandai will release the backpack with gimmicks separately after the movie is released just like Seraphim and Nadleeh

Comment by Yami

@rainy day

They are all copies of Zeta gundam in terms of transformation.

Comment by da_guy

@rainy day

oh wow, you are so right!! what you said has open my eye. i must cancel my order of delta plus and spread the news to all my friends not to support this cheap ripoff.

SEED FTW! GSD FTW!!!

Comment by oohater

@rainy day

Stranger things have flown in the sky in UC Gundam. Delta Plus is by all means quite standard.

Comment by iflameu

@da_guy
copies? by katoki? yes!

Tranformation of Zeta gundam made by okawara

very intresting to see the development tranformation of Mecha become plane mode…

kyrios nice start that have different from okawara method, that good…

yes, we can say the gundam transformation method majority follow okawara method (Z). That why gundam have similar method until now, kyrios give fresh taste in gundam tranformation with simplicity at tranformation, although still have minus in function.
what method of tranformation will bring to gundam’s future? is still okawara method? or who? (i’m sure not katoki)

Comment by rainy day

Kyrios isnt that fresh either. It’s mostly a RGZ -> Wing Gundam-> AirMaster-> Saviour type derviative

Comment by da_guy

i call kyrios fresh at transformation method because it main wing placed at knees (yeah..maybe this is reason why the main wing so small)
leg that little diffrent from other, opened wide in plane mode, because of the main wing

the nose of kyrios not use to be shield like other, little bit same with air master nose but had difference in flip method

i reluctant to put ReGZ in class like murasame, delta plus or kyrios,etc because not full transformation
when become plane mode, ReGZ need supplement armament as the main wing

kyrios still need development at it wing configuration, designer still have little care of wing function…or maybe caused miracle gn particle??

Comment by rainy day

Quote rainy day: “…or maybe caused miracle gn particle…”

It was more or less comfirmed with Exia, Dynames and Virtue flying around like 60 tons of nothing. Nevertheless, Kyrios is still awesome, and within the context of 00, more or less practical for aerial use.

Comment by Sgt. NoOb

@rainy day

“copies? by katoki? yes!

Tranformation of Zeta gundam made by okawara ”

It is not a ‘copy’ per se.
They have the same transformations because they are in the same universe, showing same technology of UC.
You don’t expect different transformations of every mobile suit to plane, because that is impractical and that is not how technology works.

Kyrios has different transformations because it is in another universe, and does not follow UC technology. In UC, transformation has been developed from that of Zeta.
Likewise all MS in UC have the same/similar method of propulsion, controls, camera, etc.etc, which gradually improves from the previous generations of MS.

Comment by greengreen

…and therefore Katoki is not ‘copying’, but being logical and correct on his take on technology in UC0093, aka time covered by the Unicorn novel/OVA.

I’m not saying that there can’t be a change in how suits transform, but in this case it simply shows that this area of tech hasn’t changed dramatically.

Comment by greengreen

…I meant UC0096 ^^

Comment by greengreen

The MG Gundam Deathscythe EW is a 100% katoki design but this is not gonna be a ver.ka kit just because i think it’s not gonna be infested with katoki’s decals.

Comment by TheSpoiler

raphael…

What a waste of an angelic name. If anyone deserved to be named that, it’s gotta be Wing Zero Custom.

they should just call it cherudim custom. is it that hard to do?

by the way, i’m digging the look on beginning gundam. I guess im a sucker for bright colors.

Comment by Josh

I’d buy the ball twin set anytime. ^^
