Despite my affection for the AGE-1 Normal I opted out of the AGE-2 Normal Master Grade when it was released. Not wanting to miss out on a potentially good thing I decided I would tackle the Dark Hound version of the AGE-2. The AGE-1 Normal featured a new kind of frame design that worked out spectacularly. Will the AGE-2 (Dark Hound) feature more of the same or will the need for the transformation gimmick make it take a step back?

I’m also trying out the camera on my new iPhone 4S for these pictures (as I left my regular camera at home on the work table).

Shiver me timbers! That box art is pretty cool.

Box Contents:

Mostly black, not like I have a problem with that. You know what they say. Once you go black…

…you don’t have to panel line.

But it’s not all black.

There are a few very small, non-black, runners.

And you get the wires for the weapons.

And several marking/sticker sheets.


AGE has those funky lines on either side of the image. Kinda cool.

But this is pretty cool. The transformation instructions.

Both sides of a fold out page! That’s Aegis like (minus the folding).

And of course the marking instructions.

I like the markings on the wings, I think they look really good.

I’d like to say I’ll start on this right away, but I’d also like to say that I’ll be doing several cool things. But, this weekend at least, what I’ll mostly be doing is this.

My body is already tired thinking about the lack of sleep.

    YES! Dark Hound ftw!
    Anime wise, this was my most favorite of the AGE machines, character-wise the pilot is my most favorite next to Woolf. MG wise, I couldn’t be more anticipatory about anything than this (’til December at least!).
    The MG AGE2 Normal was superb, Dark Hound will surely please you!
