Gundam Epyon MG Review Part 1

Written By Om3ga062012 on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 | 6:16 AM

Gundam Epyon (OZ-13MS) is a mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. According to Gundam wiki, this mobile suit was created by Treize Khushrenada during the time he was placed under confinement by the Romefeller Foundation. Originally piloted by Heero Yuy, however later the suit would be given to Zechs Merquise.

The Epyon can also transform into a "mobile armor/MA" mode (referred to as 'dragon-mode') for high-speed flight and cruising in space. The main weapon of the Epyon is "Beam Sword", which connected directly to the suit's powerplant as opposed to running on its own internal power source. The other weapon is "Heat Rod", a segmented whip-like projected chain housed in Epyon's shield. While in MA mode, it can only use "Epyon Claw", mounted on the forearms of the unit, they are used as landing gear in Dragon Mode. In combat, they can be used to tear through enemy armor.

The Master Grade (MG) version of Gundam Epyon, first released by Bandai on June 2011. It consist of 14 plastic runner sets. This gunpla is transformable.

Duel Gundam Assault Shroud MG Review Part 4

Written By Om3ga062012 on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 | 6:13 AM

Hi, i'm back with the final part of MG Duel Gundam Assault Shroud's review. This time i will equip this gunpla with "Gae Bolg" Hyper Bazooka, and "Shiva" 115mm Railgun.

There is a story why this Bazooka never be used by Duel Gundam on the anime series. According to gundam wiki, on January 25, CE 71, ZAFT's attack on Heliopolis to steal the Alliance Gundams also unknowingly interrupted the Astray project. In order to hide their progress, Orb's military decided to destroy the Astray lab. Coordinator Rondo Gina Sahaku, an Orb nobleman, disagreed and attempted to save all three suits. He commandeered the Gold Frame and used a heavy bazooka left behind by the stolen GAT-X102 Duel to blow a hole in Heliopolis that Gold Frame could fly out through. Unfortunately, Rondo Ghina forgot to calibrate Gold Frame's right arm, which was damaged in the process. He discarded the damaged arm (but kept the bazooka), and escaped the dying colony.
