I love how this just gets dropped on a Monday with no real fanfare, but it's a welcome sight nonetheless:

Aarrrgggh. More of those S***ty Age hands. It should have 3.0 hands.
Jegan deserves better.

Agreed. Jegan has been waiting a long time for this, don't short change it on the hands.

For some of the hands they use odd wedge bits instead of the straight peg.
They also only mold one trigger hand if the weapon doesn't fit the original ones. Its the most annoying thing about the Gm sniper 2 kit and will piss me off if happens with the Jegan.

It's not "just a Monday." Today is the 30th anniversary of Char's Counterattack.

Frickin' finally! Now wait until they announce P-Bandai variants that correspond to each of the 15+ current HG ones....

The 3.0 suffers from major gorilla paw syndrome, so I'm in no hurry to see them return on a similar-sized kit. If it's a choice between them and Age hands, I'll go with the Age hands any day.

Well, seeing as it's in the prototype stages, maybe it'll change? 2.0 hands would be a godsend.

I can't recall ever seeing a prototype change in any significant way once it reaches this stage, so this is more than likely what we're getting.

Honestly, what's shown in these pics seems fairly low-effort, considering what they could have done and how long it's been anticipated, but I'm still glad to accept the imperfect over nothing at all.

The new hguc Blue destiny kits had quite a number of changes between first reveal and actual product release info

The BD shown in November looks completely different from the actual kit, so I don't know what was going on there -- that was the same show with the "HGUC" Efreet Kai that was just a scaled-down RE/100.

e: not to forget the debut appearance of the MG Jesta, which was literally just a scaled-up print of the HGUC and caused a few amusing freakouts. But generally I can think of few other prototypes that differed in any way from the production versions.

e2: actually, I think the F91 2.0's face may have changed between the reveal and the most recent renders? Hard to say.

So, this piece o' pewp showed up in my Facebook feed last night... obviously not the MG, but I wonder if some 3rd party is trying to beat Bandai to the punch?

Apparently fanart from weibo a few years back.
Now you see, what you did wrong there was read the comment section on GG.

I was expecting this kit to reuse some parts from the Jegan, but from little of it it we see so far it looks brand new.

It is the Jegan. Did you mean something else?

Zip probably meant the Jesta.

I don't think the inaugural MG Jegan will be the Type D. But we'll get that sooner rather than later. And in multitudes.

The whole thing is "kinda off". Kind of a drag 'cause I could really get into this kit if they did it right.

I'm not really sure what they're trying to go for here either. It doesn't look like Katoki or Izubuchi.

I don't know how much more Izubuchieseque you could want this, really.

Bigger torso, skinny midriff, shorter lower legs with more pronounced asymmetry. It's maybe a little better than the HGUC, which is decent but not great.

Admittedly, some of this may be a matter of pose or viewing angle, but:

Things line up better, admittedly, than I would have thought, but the effect isn't quite right. The smaller chest block makes the legs dominate the look, and the almost-symmetrical legs.. Not sure how to put it exactly. They just look too normalized, maybe? They're maybe a bit too much like MG Zaku legs, when it's supposed to be more of a Gundam Mk.II outboard-thruster asymmetry, but wrapped in a smooth outer casing.

It looks pretty darn close to me. I can maybe spot two "significant" (and I use that term very lightly here) differences between this and the lineart. I swear some of you guys are nit-picky-est people ever lol.

The cockpit area does look really off, I will not even lie.

But for the most part it looks pretty good and let's try to be happy that it happened at all.

That "it happened at all" is meaningless if the result is unsatisfactory.

Big "if" there of course, and I know a lot of you actually are happy with the model. To me it's unsatisfactory. Close, admittedly, but I see no reason why they couldn't have nailed it (how much more Izubuchiesque? "the rest of the way", that's how much), and I'm getting tired of rewarding Bandai for making kits I'm not happy with.
