How did this scene not immediately warrant the Custom Flag getting an MG?
I mean I remember back when the episode debuted, the response was astounding on both sides of the planet.

The 1/100 NG overflag is so kickass and detailed and works in every gimmick so well it needs no mg.

while fantastically cheap, the NG is pretty limited in terms of articulation.
I think it would have benefited from the extra detail given to MG kits.
>>
>>17305526
it also doesn't have Graham's linear rifle from before the establishment of the Overflags.

I wonder how Graham would have faired as a OYW ace.
>>

>How did this scene not immediately warrant the Custom Flag getting an MG?

The design is so skinny that it wouldn't even fit an inner frame. The 1/100 doesn't even have an inner frame but has no hollowness.
>>
>>17307802
In my imaginary perfect world, an MG Graham Custom Flag would have better articulation, have better color separation, have more hand options, and would also have the Linear rifle and stolen GN beam saber included as weapon accessories. Also an led option to light up its visor.
I mean you can't really knock it at 20 bucks; but there's still a lot of room for improvement.
>>
>>17307791
He fared incredibly well against the Gundam due to his speed and piloting skills, however you have to remember that the Custom Flag is basically leagues beyond anything during the early OYW.
Putting him in a '79 suit would be a detriment to his overall performance.
He would serve much better as a Gryps War ace pilot.

Anon said OYW so give him a Jager.

No Graham. How many times do I have to tell just because I have Japanese ancestry does not mean I know how to graft Samurai parts onto a flag.
Come on Billy we all know you can.

Gundam 00 had so much potential for side material, and yet all we got were a handful of (excellent) cd dramas, some really shitty manga, and an artbook set after the events of AotTB.
>>
>>17308047
We also got the stage play, and whatever it is Graham (Forma ELS) comes from

The stage play that was done at the anniversary event (which is unrelated to the recent stage play)

Hahahaha! You think that anything other than lead gundams and main antagonists can get MGs (if THEY'RE lucky!), you poor naive man.
I sure love how if I want my MGs to fight some grunts, they're fucked to only have Zakus, Gelgoogs, Z'Goks, and Doms.

The better question is why the hell there's no kit for the GN Flag?
Meanwhile we have dozens of 00 Raiser releases with no worthwhile differences.

I don't like how they went from red to orange glow for the GN tau drives in the second season. I get that moving up the color spectrum shows that they're closer in output to true GN drives, but it doesn't look as impressive.
>>
>>17311772
GN Flag vs. Exia is the most metal fight in the whole franchise. It's CRIMINAL that the GN Flag never got a kit.

The last two times I watched Gundam 00 I was one of those guys who pretty much only liked Gundams and their Meisters and now I'm watching with an appreciation for Graham and Sergei and I'm having more fun than ever.

Sergei is a fucking boss. He really managed to disable Exia's cameras with a damn Tieren.

I thought Flags were a hybrid of di-camera and mono-eye?

clearly not blind as you are because in the show, the HG and the art, they're all blue just a lighter shade.

>>17314091
shame that its kits are outdated trash.
The 00 line needs a 2.0
>>
>>17314169
The season one HGs don't even feel meaningfully superior to the Seed Destiny HGs anymore. I'd also bet if 00 got revives it'd be all Setsunas suits two thirds of which don't need one and all have great RGs available anyway.
>>
>>17314475
Remember when the 00 Gundam HG came out and it was the most amazing thing ever? I was playing with it and having it do splits just because I could. The color separation was pretty weak but it's still a fantastic kit in terms of articulation. Pretty much set the standard for everything to follow.

The best part of that was the square hole round peg "What the fuck did they just say to do?" look on the technician's face when they were foreshadowing it with the rectangular port on the Flag's back and the round GN drive
