Mecha contest 2012 entry: OOB Painted - MG EW Heavyarms WIP 1

So for The epic Mecha 2012 Contest over at MAC Forums, I decided to take one leap of faith

Core block unit, similar in structure to other wing kits, then again they share one frame

Progress on the chest and arms

Last thing for ow, snapped the waist and skirt. ball joints give the skirt great flexibility freeing up spaces for the legs

Not much yet, but then again, I'm just getting started, heads up for upcoming updates soon.

All the Generations figures planned for release, note that Bruticus is a combiner so that makes eight

Bruticus in his combined form note the diferent colors for the arms:
He's made from 5 different TF's (The combaticons)

FoC Jazz, digging his accuracy with his in game model

FOC Optimus: Bulkier than his WFC counterpart. Still not bad for a toy

Shockwave: The dude the fans have been screaming for definitely NOT a disappointment there Hasbro :D

All are supposedly slated for release around fall

Prototype HGUC Delta sighted

So I browsed a fellow blogger's site and found this picture from a scan of the Hobby Magazine's feb issue.

   Now look at the MS Resin prototype there. Seems familiar? Looks like the Delta Plus right?  Bandai's made it official, we got one HGUC Delta Gundam coming in round March next year. As all Gundam fans know, the Delta Gundam was a prototype developed by Anaheim Electronics around the time of the Gryps Conflict (Time of Zeta Gundam) But during it's construction, the Delta's frame was discovered to have flaws. It made the unit essentally unable to transform (That would risk it tearng itself apart due to stress) And the Delta was eventually redesigned as the Hyaku Shiki. Years later, the concept was reinvestigated and the Delta Plus was created.

Delta Gundam MS Mode:

Wavrider mode:

That's it for MS Lore, only known info is that it will be essentially a transforming Hyaku Shiki (Colors are the same, so is the gun)
But with the plating (Gold) this will be a bit more on the expensive side for HGUC's

HGUC 1/144 Delta Gundam
Release Date: March 2012

Price: 4200 Yen
