I saw some prototype-looking images of this from a Japanese hobby show, but have no clue. Anyone know if this will be released? It's pretty kick-ass looking IMO.

That might be from the Destiny Astray manga. I've seen some images from HJ of a scratch-built one, but I swear I saw a prototype. Anyopne have that link for the tons of shiznorhararararara (sp?) hobby show pics?

I think I've got that--or something remarkably close--in either the June or July Dengeki Hobby. I know one of them had some sort of picture-story featuring Astrays. I'll check them (and keep looking for that Shiki-schemed Zeta) when I get home tonight.

Hey Fichtenfoo, do you mean Shizuoka hobby show?  If that's the case I found this http://www.hlj.com/showreports/shs06/gundam/

That's the show, but I couldn't get to the good site with a ton of images. Must had taken it down. I think this outframe predates the Shizuoka hobby show though.

Okay, here's my mods. Redframe arms, legs, head, feet, side skirts and crotch. Outframe chest, knees, shoulders, backpack, weapons, ankles, skirts, hands and v-fins

Anything I'm missing? :evil:

That's a good pic. I was right as well in assuming the Gold frame would look much better without all that shine and glare on the OOB plastic.

mrmaigo: Yeah, I COULD scratch one, but I'd rather just wait on an actual kit. Hopefully there will be one. I'd love a Testament too. Looks sooooo evil!

Whoa.. Now i'm wondering how to do a burnt gold look on my goldframe too.. That group photo is cool! I think i've seen it in a mag but i cannot remember where. There were 2 about a month or 2 old seed/seed destiny MSV model mag specials with a zaku impuse and a zaku legend inside. each one was about $30USD. The models were absolutely stunning but it was just too steep for me.

I'm also searching for the lohengrin gun images from a hobby mag to scratch for my BF 2nd L. Anyone have them?

I'm definitely considering it. I love the way it sit on the hips when not in use. It's over the top, but it looks more UC than CE over the top so it's cool with me. :D

I talked to Fulcy so I'll make it castable. Means less work for me too since I won't have to make parts that would be duped twice.

On that note, does anyone have any more pics from the image I showed above or any lohengrin pics from the manga or wherever?
