    1. im getting the same feeling lol.... maybe its a mix of both?

    2. Woot, Exia got wings! But legs are ugly :(
      This thing only use 1 GN Drive right ?
      Makes me wonder why the creator didn't go straight to Twin Drive Dark Raiser..

      Delete
    3. The booster looks like a 2nd GN Drive. Was under the impression those Dark Matter blades were from 1.5 Gundam's binders but looks awkward when wielded.

      Delete
  2. What is this? Exia Dark Matter? I will have to keep my eyes peeled on this guy for sure!

    1. I think the name dark matter it's taken from real life exotic matter.
      I hope this guy also get MG, 00 needs more MG... T_T

      Delete
    2. agreed, we need us some reborns MG , i would kill for it.

      Delete
    3. According to Nils Nielsen, Plavsky Particles are created by bonding antiparticles together so there should be something real fun with this guy.

      Delete
    4. Dark Matter? Aside from the real dark matter, it reminds me of Teitoku Kakine from the Index series.

      Delete
  5. Where's the f*** is the GN Sword idk what number here!?

    Replies
    1. Looks like it might have a pare of GN sword IIs.

    2. Prominence Blade and Brinicle Blade

  6. 1800 ¥ price tag, wonder what makes it so expensive.

    ReplyDelete

  13. Customized 00 gunpla!! So ELS like!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. definetly getting this

    ReplyDelete
  15. This isn't an Exia, it's clearly a Tekkaman. Look at it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Speaking of which, I bet it would look awesome with a Tekkaman Blade color scheme. After Gundam, Tekkaman Blade is one of my all time favorite anime series

      Delete
  16. Damn !! Exia and dark in the same sentence ? Full win for sure !!

    ReplyDelete

    1. no...lose ;-;
      this guy (exiaDM) got beaten by the 'magician' build strike..
      since star build strike have magics.. =.=''

      Delete
  17. So this has a Plavsky Drive?

    ReplyDelete
  18. The shoulders are from Xi Gundam.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Can't wait to see it in the anime tho!

    ReplyDelete
  20. my exia collection is suddenly incomplete!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Maybe it's the Mk. II equivalent for the Star Build Strike.

    ReplyDelete
  22. u can do so much custom variations with exia thats what i like about exia

    ReplyDelete
  23. I came when I saw this.

    ReplyDelete
  24. looks like aegis epyon variation of exia

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hope it's modified Xi shoulders, and we get HGUC Xi someday

    ReplyDelete
  26. Exia with Gold Frame lower body?
    These new announcements are a glimpse into the next part of Gundam Build Fighters.

    The next story arc...

    ReplyDelete
  27. shoulders are quite Penelope/Ξ feel to it.. i hope it is, then i hope it brings us to a HG Penelope/Ξ

    ReplyDelete
  28. ELEVEN FUCKING PLATES!!!
    but just two swords?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks, Build Fighters!

    ReplyDelete
  30. There's something a bit... "off" about this one.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The shoulder armour reminds me of the Xi gundam

    ReplyDelete

    1. You got my mind in there dude

      Delete
  32. Exia + Regenerate / Aegis + Gold Frame Amatu

    BanDai just keep on recycling kits aren't they

    and yup 99% this is a enemy unit

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. second opening confirms it is the last boss of the tournament, its shown in a silloute behind the chairmen, after scrolling over 4 suits, then 3 suits, zoom in and behind him is the silloute of the exia dark mater, with the exia core and head light glowing

      Delete
  33. I have a feeling that this along with the Miss Sazabi make up the rest of Team Nemesis. It's just pure speculation, but the members of Team Nemesis haven't really been featured apart from Aila and Gavin's appearances and both of them do have evil looking gunpla.

    ReplyDelete
  34. hmmm, HGBF, wonder when I can see him in action in the anime

    ReplyDelete
  35. How the hell people think it's Amatsu lower body? You can clearly see normal Exia leg line, with modification on knee and the feet, but that's all; it's still Exia looking.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hmm... smaller feet? Could this be based (wishing) on a new HGAD Exia like the HGCE Strike?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hope Exia Dark Matter's pilot will be a female one.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Actually guys Exia Dark Matter was a bad guy side, i mean PPSE Chairman's army to defear Reji/Sei in tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  39. looks so cheap and bad, it will need some painting to look good at least

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree another poorly done red and black color scheme. This Kit needs a lot of painting. It reminds me of the old wing and gundam x hg kits from the 90s.

      Delete
  40. Most of the build fighters series can all be made in MG form but whats taking bandai so long to change the colour and add on extra armors/weapons on the kits

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looks better in all black LOL

    ReplyDelete
  42. that work is, to much....

    ReplyDelete
  43. The color scheme looks awful.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. awful? =.=''
      i think it looks badass. :)

      Delete
  44. i dont know why but... i kind of dissapointed of the color... i though it will be more... Evil... :/

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ugh, that color scheme looks atrocious. I was expecting a completely black Exia with a visor only...

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm totally gonna wait for this to come here in the phillippines!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Can't wait to take my Airbrush to this kit.

    ReplyDelete
  48. All are modified Gundam Exia parts except for the legs and the backpack. The legs came from 00Quanta. Anyway the color really sucks. They must change it to look more menacing.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Your correct on the back pack, but the legs still belong to exia, i'm thinking the r2 mold is what they used on the upper thigh's.

      Delete
    2. It's clearly R2 based, you can see the thighs(better hip joints btw) and also the two swords, one has clear part and the other doesn't (the blade of GN Sword Kai and GN Sword, now called Prominence Blade and Brinicle Blade fyi)

      Delete
  49. this will look a hell of a lot better once it's painted...I'm still not sure about the design

    ReplyDelete
  50. I do like the design, but have a mixed feeling about the massive backpack.
    I think a lot of people, myself included, liked Exia for its sort of clean design, without messy things hanging off like a massive back pack. That was always Seed and Seed Destiny thing to be honest.
    I'm not saying that massive backpacks of Seed is bad, I do like Seed, but I just think that they messed up 00 design aspects with Seed design aspects...

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm willing to bet this kit will come with hella stickers.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'd buy this but I will probably modify a lot of stuff as well, like removing that big-ass backpack (or making it detachable if it isn't) and making the colors similar to Deathscythe hell custom, maybe paint it all black.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What is this? Gurren Lagann?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think the legs is kind short and the color too simple, I hope bandai will put anothor color on it (like gold) but I love the head and the body..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe there is, like on those parts that uses grey stickers on the original Exia.
      There's a serious lack of color separation in the HGBF kits.

      Delete
  55. was thinking of doing a red/black/some other color custom palette on a 00 Raiser... actually seeing some of my ideas on this exia has made me decide they would be a bad idea and to try something else (good to know ahead of time xD )

    ReplyDelete
  56. This is BADASS!
    My opinion though
    I understand that nobody likes the huge backpack or the colors but I bet there will be some extra color given by stickers.
    And maybe the backpack is the new build booster.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. different with me..
      the backpack n the color scheme looks badass..
      my opinion. :)

      Delete
  57. I think it should have been black and purple or maybe some gold and black and some red

    ReplyDelete
  58. I hope they will replace the purple with another color like red or gold and it just me or the sword have a different effect ??

    ReplyDelete
  59. is the core has red color ?? becaus in anime it has green color

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That looks unpainted so they MIGHT have a sticker for it not sure though

      Delete
  60. the top part of the backpack looks like aile strike binder..

    ReplyDelete
  61. The first time I saw the shadow... its cool.

    Now I saw it's true form... its sooooooo uncool!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. PAINT!!!! I needs the paint.!

    I am getting this JUST SO I CAN FIX THAT AWFUL COLOR SCHEME!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you just about to die seeing an awful gunpla...
      its not that awful anyways...-_-''

      Delete
  63. so the dark matter have two different sword..that good
    and it just me or the dark matter doesn't have any sticker on it ??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, normally, bandai doesn't show the kit with the sticker until later on.

      Delete
  64. Judging from the back connectors those large binder like things are thrusters that pivot backwards. Will likely look much better like that than the standard pose. Those spikes on the GN drive look silly though. That and the colour scheme aside, not a bad design

    ReplyDelete
  65. Most effin exia ever. Need more imorovementa when it comea to color scheme. Exia i my fav bad ass gundam. Why did they destroy it. Curse u who ever came io with this idea. Curse you!!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. curse urself 1st because of those mixed languages. -_-
      destroy for ur eyes.and i think exiaDM looks more badass than the normal version
      because not all of gunpla fans have the same thinking like you.

      Delete
  66. Alas, Exia Dark Matter gets the harsh assumption of worthlessness based on its colors -_-
    Why not wait for it debut on the anime for us to decide if it's interesting or not.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh we're sure it's probably gonna be cool, But that awful color scheme is unacceptably awful, even if this thing has the ability to bend space and time or create galaxies :P it looks hideous.

      Delete
  67. if you look at the color and imagine it has no backpack, it's actually just exia with a color swap, the blue on the exia became red, and the white became black... with a few extra pieces here and there

    but i have to agree, bad inverted colors, better to put some black on those reds, change to purple to dark brown or brownish grey and repaint the reds to match sazabi's or sinanju's red color... and maybe some lighter grey color for the frame, what do you guys think?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Gale Strike vibe?! Anyone?!

    ReplyDelete
  69. oh wow, i think the color should be black with grey/silver colors. the red looks so bad...imo this gunpla needs have better color scheme. imo dark matter should be black color cuz its name is Dark Matter, lol what's this Red Matter -_-

    ReplyDelete
  70. it seems like the PPSE copied Star Build Strike Build Booster, aka reverse engineering & evil counterpark of Star Build Strike Gundam.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ugh, that is an ugly color scheme. I'll stick with the original Exia.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think the one who will piloting this exia dark matter is meijin kawaguchi or the chairman himself,well I prefer meijin though

    ReplyDelete
  73. call it ugly, once that thing appears in the show and destroys every other plas, everyone will go "HOLY SHIT!!! DARK MATTER IS AWESOME!!!BEST EXIA EVER!!!! I WANT IT!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  74. This like if Graham's Masurao had a kid with Setsuna's Exia.....

    ReplyDelete
  75. Can't Imagine How Great it be if TRANS-AM~

    ReplyDelete
  76. Am I the only one who actually -likes- these colours?

    ReplyDelete
  77. 2 GN swords, normal one plus kai ver. !!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Just wait until the sticker for this exia come out then we will see the real dark matter version

    ReplyDelete
  79. I can't wait to see this Exia in action!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Just wait for Bandai to go on a Exia Master Grade splurge announcements with Dark Matter, Repair 3, and that gray one from the 00 anime. This variant is like if Exia, Sazabi, and Deathscythe Hell EW had a 3 way love child.

    ReplyDelete
  81. this may look great and all but lets just hope it's not just for show and disappointing by being taken out in few moves, cause it's all about skills not flashy looks.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Still, old elbow,
    lame 90 degree articulation

    ReplyDelete
  83. Kinda ugly in my opinion. And looks very cheap too, I mean it is just like those kind of toys I usually found selling in markets or side-vendors. Yes, I know, if I don't like it then don't buy it. I know that.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I can't wait for GBF to be over.. I do tire of these gimmicky suits that ruin their original's designs for no real reason. I really hope this gaudy thing doesn't get an MG. Save that slot for a suit that actually deserves it, like say a Jegan.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh hell no, i'm also tired with another uc or seed mg, and to bad for you this definitely gonna get mg, they has mg Exia R2 already for the base and only need to add some new runner to make Exia BM.

      Delete
    2. I agree. Ready for a real gundam anime where people get hurt. Tired of the rehashed butchered up suits.

      Delete
    3. Your comment wont stop Bandai from doing so if ever! Just get over it! If you don't like the kit then don't buy it, simple as that!

      Delete
    4. I can have my opinion. I know it wont change anything bandai does. If you love it, buy the junk.

      Delete
    5. Then why are you here

      Delete
    6. @ anon 5 06:57
      its for his "opinion"...

      i don't hate the show nor the design of the ms, but yea, i agree with anon 3 5:35, i also need "regular" gundam show.

      Delete
    7. @anon 8:35
      Build Fighters IS a "regular" Gundam show. Stop shoe-horning your ideas about what Gundam "should be" and embrace new possibilities.

      Delete
  85. oddly it gives me flashbacks of tekkaman evil from tekkaman blade series

    ReplyDelete
  86. All that big back pack kind of wrecks Exia's sleek design. The swords and color scheme aren't bad though.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Gn sword 1 and gn sword kai! Cant wait to see this in action... just hoping to see quanta in action as well but iguess it wont hapen...

    ReplyDelete
  88. These new images shed this kit in a totally different light. This kit will be FANTASTIC!

    ReplyDelete
  89. So since this is Exia that we're talking about, it means it has Trans-AM mode as well, right? So who you think will win then, Trans-AM or RG System, considering the speed boost and power?

    ReplyDelete
  90. This is like the 14th or 15th times Bandai spamming 00 GAY people with the Exia, especially when you strip off it's backpack and it turns out to be just another normal Exia.

    The color scheme is plain hideous in monotones that it still looks half-baked even when you finished building it, I can see that why the BuilderStrike is more stand out than this monotonous queer. Even the GM Sniper K9 and Kampfer Amazing are much more better than this.

    Bandai sure enjoy all those blind patronage of GAY BAKA boys huh?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Will trans-am be the original exia colors? I'm already sold on getting this Exia variation.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Will this ever be in an Mg???

    ReplyDelete
  93. Screw the watermark. Hope gginfinite folds up.

    ReplyDelete
  94. in the anime it looks more badass, damn... will get it soon

  96. Lion Beard Monster 12March 20, 2014 at 7:38 PM

    This is so badass, but they need to hurry up and make a kit for Exia Amazing. Or just give us MGs for both of them.

    ReplyDelete
  97. ...This Unit reminds me of the 1.5 gundam type dark...

  98. Wii there be an Amazing Exia (Complete) model kit?

    ReplyDelete
  99. I just don't get it..
    Why are there so many haters to this gunpla? -_-
    Red + black doesn't seem badass meh? =.=''
    I dunno.Maybe It doesn't really match with the thinking of ya guys.
