Gaijin Gunpla

I’m really excited about the MG Duel Gundam Assault Shroud. It seems I’ve been building MG Wing Kits for forever and it’s time for a change. SEED suit designs being some of my favourite I’m eager to get started on this big bad blue boy.

Box art looks awesome. I like how they’ve got the Assault Shroud and Shroudless version together. I actually prefer the look of the kit without the Assault Shroud but the illustration is magnificent.

Box Contents:

It’s your standard size MG box. Looking at this kit I am reminded of the MG Full Armor Gundam or maybe the MG Blue Astray.

Plenty of markings!


I like this style of manual with the suit on a white background. Inside the manual is even cooler.

The manual starts with the suit then proceeds to the weapons. Once that is done, you get to do this:

The Assault Shroud.

If it rains on Saturday I will start on the Duel Gundam. If it is sunny on Saturday I will paint more of my Heavy Arms (and start on the Duel Gundam). Gonna be a good weekend.

    Do you mark the MG release dates on your calendar or something? It seems like you always have a post like this right at their release date.

    @Jeff, well he DOES work at HLJ…

    Hey Syd, I could see this being the War Machine to your Iron Man ReZel!

      No, I’m not going to use this kit for a War Machine. I don’t know if I will do a war machine build as I’ve already moved on to other ideas and things I want to try. I already have something I want to try with this kit but I’ll do the straight test-build first and go from there.

    Very nice quick look, I just paid for my kit. Though it’s going to be a few weeks before it gets here from Japan. Once you get deeper into the kit, can we get some extra information on the new X-SEED runner, since I expect we’ll be seeing that one throughout the year in all the new SEED gunpla.
