    That was the reason I asked. Numerous stores still have it and other kits that Gundam Planet claim are no longer produced. I could never verify the voracity of these rumors, so I figured I would seek some insight from some people here that I trust.

    Maybe gundam planets distributor is no longer carrying it.

    Re: GNN Gundam News Network

    Via fb and in person, bluefin reps have told me that bandai very rarely discontinues kits. That's why we still get kits from the 80's.

    Also, thinking logically, why even keep the kit up on their site if its sold out and will never be released again?

    Re: GNN Gundam News Network

    More likely that the kit is just between production runs and is becoming scarce until the next batch are produced.
    It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. At least, that's what I keep telling myself with all my modeling supplies...

    This is exactly was what I was thinking.

    Re: GNN Gundam News Network

    Is it me, or does the Narrative version of the Sinanju Stein have a slight blue tint to it:



    Bandai has released color images of the upcomin MG Dynames, and man the Dynames has never looked this good before now:







    Looks like the Dynames doesn't use a single part of the old MG Exia frame. Some of have conjectured that this could mean that Bandai might consider producing another MG Exia much like how the Strike received a 2.0 for the Remaster of Seed.

    Moving on, we have a new MG in the works: the Gundam AGE II Magnum.







    So the first MG to be released from Build Divers is this? Odd choice, but alright. Yes, I know it's a pretty cool suit, but it's still an odd choice for a first release.

    Re: GNN Gundam News Network

    I was more expecting the 00 Sky than this. But Bandai seems to be pushing the Magnum more so. It was available from the start in New Gundam Breaker. Where the sky was added months later.

    As for the Stein and Dynames. Dynames looks amazing, lots of mechanical details on the surface that looks really good. And the Stein, I'd say that those are painted images, if not photoshopped. But, the HG is very grey. Where the Ver Ka was white. So it's possible that the MG of the Narrative Ver will also be more grey than white.

    Re: GNN Gundam News Network

    I'm super happy to see the Magnum finally being announced. It was a pretty obvious release as they already have most of the mold ready. Similar to what they did with the Build MK II.

    Re: GNN Gundam News Network

    Time for the 2nd round of Gunpla news. First off, new images of the Narrative Gundam w/A-Pack:























    Next up, the HGUC Narrative Gundam has a new P-Bandai expansion kit coming out: the B-Pack.



    And finally, another P-Bandai exclusive: the HGUC Neo Zeong II.







    Note: Psyco-Shard is sold separately.

    Am I the only one to notice that the Narative looks like a revamped G Savior?

    Re: GNN Gundam News Network

    Kinda sucks that you can't buy the Narrative separately from the packs (at least not yet).

    *Sigh*, why is the Neo-Zeong always so expensive? T_T
