Two years after the Metal Build 00 Gundam Seven Swords, designer Kanetake Ebikawa brings its innovations in proportion and mobility to a Metal Build Gundam Exia!
Its markings have also been completely redone, and it is convertible to become the first-ever commercially-available Gundam Exia Repair III.
The diecast frame glints through Exia's armor, hinting at the contrast in materials.
The metal build, high mobility, and luxurious loadout make this one of our most playable figures yet!

    1. eat shit with your yada yada MG wish

    2. Buy 10.000 of this

    3. MG Exia R2 will just have weak ankle joints all over again. The way I see Nike, this metal build is a hellava lot more stable and worth your money.

    4. Nothing ever satisfy your 00gasm.... im a seed fan and im happy with my freedom (and 00 seven sword) metal build. i could imagine bandai giving u this as a possible 2.0 mg and your still not satisfied cuz of maybe you want mg of the other suits and all its variation. you need to be patient just like all of us seed (and wing) fans where bandai finally gave us mg aegis and talgese. i could c y trolls pick on u. i hate trolls but your impatients is annoying

      Delete
    5. they might release it eventually. don't worry xnike, you're not the only one who want mg exia r2 and r3.
      :)

      Delete
    6. just take it, MB more suitable for you who doesn't build your kit so often

      Delete
    7. patience Xnike, all in good time these kits we wished for will be released. tallgeese will be released after 2years, since the internet poll that got "the O" and "deathscythe".
      The best thing is to participate on the bandai sponsored polls for our voice to be heard. :)

    8. Don't even bother convince suiton to grab this, it's not like he can afford this anyway

      Delete
    9. OK people, please be nice.

      Delete
    10. Yeah, that I think may take awhile. I do wish too they release a MG Exia R3.

      Delete
    11. buy me a metal build exia and ill help you to email spam bandai

      not really, you can do modifications on MG, and paint it. depending on your skills, the result might surpass MB in terms of look. though painted kits aren't really playable, since the paint might get scraped. =P

  4. Oh dear, suiton and his MG Exia R2 again *facepalms*

  5. Wait is it a HG or a MG???

  10. hi.. so im kinda new to gunpla building *but i know alot already* but i still don't know what the term "Side MS" means, can anyone define it for me? would appreciate it much thnx :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Side MS generally means any non-lead suit or design variation of an existing suit that does not appear in the anime. Unfortunately that definition is misleading because "regular" suits have been put out under the same label so it doesn't mean much.

      Basically its all bs, if you like the design go for it :)

      Delete
    2. Umm... I think your definition of "Side" MS is wrong here. I think you're trying to say 'side' as in side character, hence, non-lead suit. But for the Japanese and their Engrish, they label Robot Damashii under different series, they give Gundams - Mobile Suit side, or Knightmare Frame side (KMF). In other words, it's more like mobile suit 'side' of Robot Damashii or whatever-mecha side of it.

      Delete
    3. Actually, you're wrong too. Side MS is any MS that only appears in non-anime media (or a variation of an anime MS). So suits that appear in manga, books, video games, etc. Even OVA suits, like Wing Zero Custom, are considered side MS because Endless Waltz was released separately from the Gundam Wing show.

      Delete
    4. ^I think you mean MSV.

      Anon 8:42 AM is correct as far as the Robot Damashii line is concerned, which is a little related to Gunpla.

      Delete
  11. I'm a huge Exia fan and was awaiting the appearance of MB Exia's design.
    ...now I'm a little underwhelmed. First of all, I'm not interested in R3 parts. That variation should never have existed in the first place IMO(giving Exia, the sexy melee beast, a big gun? Screw that.)
    Now obviously the R3 parts alone should not affect my opinion on the MB Exia itself.
    Thing is, the MB Exia from what I can see just doesn't look as amazing as I was hoping it to be. Feels like it is lacking in details and didn't made me go "woah" like I did with MB Freedom. I'll not finalize my judgement until more pictures appear but I'm feeling a bit disappointed as an Exia fan.

    1. I agree. The GN Sword/Blades doesn't have chrome pieces, which is what I love on my MG Exia Ignition. I borrowed a katana from MG Red Frame...looks badass with the GN Sword :D

      I want to see more pictures as well.

      Delete
  12. I too am a HUGE Exia fan and as a "fan" I don't really mind on the small details as long as it looks close enough unlike the one that Katoki made though I have it too, and as a "fan" I'd still buy and place it with my other Exia collection.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wait.. there's a Katoki version of Exia?

      Delete
    2. Yup, it's from the Gundam Fix Figuration series. Look for 00 Region #2301. Of all Exias, this design's the least that I like but still considering it as an artwork 'cause it looks different from other Exia models except of course the SD ones.

      Delete
    3. Hello, fellow Exia fan. I understand your view of wanting to collect the different interpretations of Exia. I think that my disappointment in the MB comes from my hopes of the MB being the penultimate Exia merchandise with a very stylish and sleek design. Something that surpasses all previous versions, including the MG.
      From this pic, MB Exia doesn't look bad, it just doesn't look amazing.

      Delete
    4. I just saw Katoki's Exia. Ugh.. he made such a sleek design look fat and generic, that thing's just ugly.

      I like some of Katoki's redesigns of Okawara suits but I don't think think his style meshes well with Ebikawa's (Gundam 00).

      Delete
    5. hmm apart from the additional parts to convert it into R2 and R3, I don't find it better than the MG version (if you ignore some joint problems, but since I don't really play with my kits a lot, I just display them). but before making conclusions, I'll wait for more pics to be released...

      Delete
    6. Hi, excuse me. Is this the Zeta Fan Club? I think I'm lost.

      Delete
  13. Can't read Japanese, is this Robot damashii or gunpla?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Neither, it's a Metal Build as the article states. Metal Builds are high end completed action figures, 1/100 scale and with diecast parts.

      Delete
  14. Title should be Metal Build Gundam Exia Repair III

    ReplyDelete
  15. ah looks like i know what to get for my birthday next year :)

    Looks amazing

    ReplyDelete
  16. I GOT BILLS TO PAY OFF AND THAT WON'T HAPPEN BECAUSE OF THIS BEAUTY HERE!

    I thought about doing a custom project to make the Repair 3 but my modeling skills aren't even novice level lmao. I'll be firmly adding this to my collection of metal builds. Got the 00 and the Freedom. I'll be more than happy to add this fellow.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow it comes with the R3 parts, I gotta get this

    ReplyDelete
  18. wow nice R2 and R3 parts
    It's like what they did with the Astraea Type F adding optional parts of the F2
    With they release HG of the other 2nd gen CB Gundams
    Mainly want the Saldasuud and the Plutone

    ReplyDelete
  19. Siiigh... first it's 00 Sevens Sword/G with 0 Raiser add-on, then Freedom, now Exia. I'm guessing the next one is Strike Freedom. -_-!

    Give me either (RX 78-2) Gundam / Gundam Mk. II / Zeta / Ex-S Gundam / Nu Gundam / Sinanju / Wing Gundam ZER0 ~EW~ in Metal Build Bandai, then we'll talk. :p

    ReplyDelete
  20. Is there any way I can get pieces of the gun on R3's arm in HG? Like, a resin kit or something? Any way will do.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ugliest mobile suit ever. What a waste.

    1. congratulations, you are the one that bandai is looking for. can't wait for your designs. hope to see it soon and for sure we will worship it.

      Delete
    2. Better then you mom i bet!

      Delete
  22. Whoa nice pose there! If this model can hold that pose without too much fuss then it'll be better than the MG Exia for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Damn it looks so sexy lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. My hips are moving on their own!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think that exia should be released like the seven swords with a avalanche exia attachment who agrees?

    ReplyDelete
  26. BANDAI! WE NEED THE MG EXIA R2 KIT W/ R3 PARTS!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's no pleasing you is there? The R3 parts are virtually identical to the R2 so its not that hard to make one if you want. Just paint the back skirts white and mix and match the other parts. Voila! Exia R2.

      Delete
    2. Don't waste your time. He doesn't even build Gunpla.

      Delete
    3. ohhhhh... so its now "NEED MG R2 WITH R3 PARTS" now?
      FFS...

      Delete
    4. Fuck

  27. I wish bandai or any other manufacturer would make an R3 add on parts for the current MG Exia. Just like BTF did for MG 00Q, a GN IV full saber add on. But that thing sucks, for display purposes only and for balance as well.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Will there be a stand included in the package? :). Metal Build Freedom's stand was a good bonus to the product!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. all metal build has a stand. sadly im not buying this cuz it doesnt look better than the mg. imo exia repair is da best

      Delete
  29. I'm liking the redesigned arms. They look beefier compared to the lanky ones from the original. I would also love to see Bandai one day make a model of the original concept Exia (called Pawn Gundam I think). That one really looks alien.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like to own Metal Build but it was too expensive IMO.... =(

  31. Can this have a light up gn drive?
