Written By Om3ga062012 on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 | 5:57 AM

Duel Gundam (GAT-X102) first appeared on Mobile Suit Gundam SEED anime series, it was among the first to be completed in the Earth Alliance's G Project series of prototype MS. As with the other suits developed under the G Project, the Duel was equipped with the new Phase Shift armor, making it nearly impervious to shell firing weapons. According to gundam wiki, after being stolen by ZAFT and damaged in battle, the suit is upgraded with the so-called Assault shroud armor, which fits several armor plates over the body that can be ejected if necessary. The armor also adds an additional "Shiva" 115mm railgun on the right shoulder and a 220 mm 5-barrel missile pod on the left shoulder for additional firepower. This unit is piloted by Yzak Joule.

The Master Grade version (MG) of this gunpla first released by Bandai on February 2012. It is consist of 15 plastic runner sets with  additional weapon "Gae Bolg" bazooka that was not seen in anime series.

Bandai made Seed fans waited a decade for MG! I had the HG 1/100 back then so I didn't get this. MG indeed is sleek, detailed and nice decals!

@Dennis aka Katsuden: The armor / body design is more detailed and proportional than the MG Strike Rouge. I'm planning to complete the SEED series, I hope i can purchased the other MG gunplas this year
