HG 1/144 Arios Gundam EDITED

EDITED: Added more info. and images to make up for this really short posting ^^

A single image of HG 1/144 Arios, pulled from Futaba Imageboard.

Love the longer V Fin design ^^

December release, 1,575 Yen (inclusive of tax).

New images of MG Gundam Mk. II Ver. 2.0 HD Ver (A.E.U.G. & Titans):

In the picture on the right, you can see that for Gundam Mk. II, it's being shown mounted on an Action Display Base.

There's no mentioning on Bandai Hobbysite that the launch platform would be included for the A.E.U.G. version, so I'm quite certain that it's being omitted for this HD ver.

Also, the illustrations for both Mk. IIs at the bottom of the box are different from the ones on the front cover. That's quite unusual for an MG kit, on top of the drastic distinction of having the name of the Gundam displayed horizontally (smaller in size too), as compared to the usual vertical placement on the far left portion of the front cover, save for Ver. Ka releases of course.

Release date and price are the same for both: November 25th, 4,200 Yen each (inclusive of tax).

Speaking of the MG line, a super-fast review on the just-released MG Shin Matsunaga's Customized High Mobility Type Zaku II Ver. 2.0 by Hatena Diary.
