Took some pictures of my collection. Unfortunately most of them are in the simple standing poses only because I am trying to reorganize them and acquire a glass door display case to place in my room to free up some space. Ive only recently started painting and all I did on that front is 00 raiser, and masuro, their clear parts. Enjoy.
Spoiler for large pictures:

p.s. included a shot of my collection of figurines and trading figures ^_^

They're using HG models, I think I'm going to try my Archer on some Figma lol

Finished, now just waiting for the obligatory photo session but that will have to wait for a while since I'm doing galleries of other figures



Just a few thoughts:
- Some joints and connectors for the arms and wings need some white glue to strengthen the unions because they are way too loose if you simply snap the whole thing.
- The machine guns right under the head of the Gundam are a royal pain in the ass, too much trouble for a little detail that you will never care much about.
- The little barrel at the end of both Buster Rifles is really fragile, you need to be extra careful when attaching it.
- Applying the transfer decal that supposedly goes in the shoulder of the Gundam is impossible. Screw that, I just used some random water decals and that's it.
- BALANCE. That backpack is damn heavy.
- Canīt really do that many poses with WZC due to the wings: unless they are fully extended they look kinda weird. Guess the pose I will display it will be that of it's final attack in the SRW games with both rifles one on each hand before it begins to rotate.

Aside those little details, this is one awesome kit and so far, my favorite one among all my MG's, highly recommended

^^^Beamknight, your Zero looks amazing. My MG zero was also back heavy I hated it as well. I would also recommend the wing gundam ver kai. It's very nice all around.

I have a question,

I am thinking of grabbing the Robot Damashii 0 Gundam, which is out in March I believe. As I only take in HG 1/144 kits, I was wondering, what's the size difference comparisons between a HG 1/144 and a RD model? Are they about the same size?

Robot Damashii should be about the same size as a normal MSIA so I think it's like 1 to 3 centimetres smaller compared to the 1/144 version.

Could you imagine the speed the 00 would have?

Nope nope, Damashii figures are a good 2-3 inches taller than traditional MSIA.

The 00 Gundam and the Ahead are in scale with the EMSIA Gelgoogs, which are considerably taller thank regular MSIA.

@ AaKkisa - Nice collection none of them are painted? I'm more or less worried about the Avalanche Exia I just grabbed that. Next week I'm going to start on the three models I got from Katsucon, and I'm going to order some GMarkers and a SD Destiny. Is Avalanche 0 Paint or GMarkers only? Nice work on your models though I was going to buy that Kakashi figure you have but it was liek 15 bucks I was like n/m lol

So, in short, take an example, the difference in size/height between a RD Exia and HG 1/144 Exia is?

I am collecting only UC Gundams. Wing and SEED kits are just cheap, just like the series. What I value most right now is my Gundam ver 2.0. Man, that's what I call perfect conversion. Now one can remake all the poses from the series. can't wait till I get Char's Zaku ver 2.0 to match it up.

Thanks, I might try to come up with some poses with this model once I take some more pics of it. As for painting... I just used spraycans, metallic blue, metallic red, gold and semigloss topcoat as finisher. Just painted the inside of the clear orb of the chest with metallic green as the sticker looks horrible

How much did Seiya cost? I've seen that one in my hobby shop, and wanted it, but was too expensive at that time.

Well the Damashii line is gonna have something called "Scale Unity". All the Bandai CEO said about it was that mobile suits will be accurately sized to each other in that specific line.

Example being the 00 and the Ahead. The 00 Gundam is 18 meters, and the Ahead is 20. In figure terms, the Ahead is about an inch maybe 2 taller than the 00.
