1/100 MG Gundam AGEII Magnum Unboxing

1/100 MG Gundam AGEII Magnum

The Big Guns. (I’m sure there are kits with bigger actual guns out there, but…) The MG AGEII Magnum is the first MG kit I’ve ever taken a very close look at, myself. The box is bigger than anything I’ve checked out for unboxings so far, and awkwardly square-shaped (as opposed to the usual rectangular boxes we get with Figure-rise and HG kits). It barely fits on the studio table. It’s glorious. Let’s jump right in.

The Box

Here’s what Bandai wants you to know about this kit:

  • The Gunpla of Kyoya Kujo, the Champion of GBN, has been recreated with stylish proportions unique to the MG line and highly dense parts configuration.
  • Iconic forms of the Gunpla, such as its head, have been recreated with sharp parts.
  • The cockpit can open and close. A 1/100 scale Kyoya Kujo figure is included.
  • Reproduce the transformation into the phoenix mode by exchanging parts.
  • The landing gear can unfold.
  • The form of the beam vulcans has been faithfully recreated.
  • The Hyper Dods Rifle Magnum can be mounted onto the rear armor.

And there’s more!:

  • The shoulders have adopted new frames which allow for more holding power. The groin joints have adopted a locking mechanism which allows for a stable range of articulation in MS mode.
  • The F Funnels can detach from the shoulders to recreate their extended states.
  • Marking stickers unique to the plastic model kit designed by mecha designer Kanetake Ebikawa are included.
  • The hand parts can be switched to create various expressions.

In addition, we’re seeing here that the kit comes with a Shiguru shield and beam sabers. It’s also noted on the box that the kit is shown in its promo images with an Action Base 4, which you’ll have to pick up separately if you’d like to land some of the less-balanced poses.

The Runners

There are a whole lot of these, but what else would you expect from an MG?

The purple A runner.

B1 in silvery-grey and B2 in dark grey.

Another B runner — this one in orange — and the next two runners are all quite small. C has yellow parts and D is a nice clear blue-green.

The white E runner. Kyoya is included here — you get him in a standing pose or a sitting pose for the cockpit.

The grey F runner.

Two identical grey runners for G.

And two more identical runners for I, this time in white.

The L runners are interesting. The top half of both runners, L1, is identical, but after the circle in the center you get L2 and L3 runners, respectively. These are all in purple again.

Back to smaller runners for J, in grey. There are some weapons parts in here.

The K runner is also small and the same grey as J.

M1 and M2, both small runners in white.

N1 and N2, both in grey.

We’re getting to the fun parts. O1 and O2 are molded in clear blue-green parts.

The MP runner has your extra hand parts in grey, with four different configurations for the fingers. The SB runner has your bean saber parts in clear pink.

And finally, a whole lot of polycaps and stickers. The sticker sheet on the left looks deceptively like decals, but is indeed just a sticker sheet. There are also two small foil sticker sheets for minor details and the eyes.
