I'll say. My only disappointment is that we didn't get to see all of its capabilities.

Would anyone happen to know what size these are in relation to gunpla kits? HLJ helpfully lists them under 'non-scale'.

After seeing a couple of pictures of MG Qan-T on HLJ I gotta say, I am VERY impressed... I am even considering buying it so they release the other three Gundams in MG (Zabanya first, please!) ;]

Big Ass box as you can clearly see. But I doubt few here will bother to get it since most are still giddy over the OO franchise.

Given all the comments about Raphael's unbalanced design from month's back, I find this a nice surprise, and even more so given that none of the reviews I've seen online ever display this aspect of the Raphael - they always either display the Raphael on a stand, or when on the ground they use the GN Bazookas to prop it up from behind.
Nice. But I've heard feedback that the connection of the backpack with Raphael's back isn't very good. Anyway, did you paint it aside from panel lining?

Plus I see your Reborns up there.

Not sure of that particular assessment, given the imminent release of Unicorn episode 2 and the already released 14-minute PV. Heck, I already know a few people already dying to get their hands on that.

1. Yeah, the backpack connection isn't really as solid as the Seraphim to the Seravee. The connection works well enough for most posing purposes though, except if you want to pose the Raphael horizontally to its side anyway.

2. I'm a minimalist painter, so I only painted any missing colors that the parts separation doesn't do, and any details. I also paint any clear parts to their proper color. Don't have the time to do a full paint job though, given my workplace.

3. The Reborns was a gift from a friend, lucky me

That reminds me: I still have not painted the clear chest piece and beam saber of my Reborns. Gotta get some purple and orange colours...

I just fiddled with a HG 00Q belonging to a friend of mine. It's quite solid, in fact I think it rivals HG 00. Articulation, no loose parts, awesome design. Even without painting. I guess I'll get one next week, haven't built a kit in months.

My last kit was in the summer (MG Unicorn Ver. Ka.), but I just ordered a bunch of 'em so good times ahead! On a somewhat related note, do we have a confirmed release date for the PG Strike Freedom?

Yes, the HG 00Q rivals the HG 00 in terms of articulation barring a few points like the white right shoulder flap reducing the right arm's articulation. Otherwise the HG 00Q not only retains most of the HG 00's poseability, but also subtly improves on some of the other aspects of the HG 00, like having a more solid and tighter wrist to better hold the Buster Sword, and the ability of the 00Q to use the forearm hardpoints.

The 00Q does need a bit more painting if you don't want to use the stickers, especially for the head.

All we know for now is that it's a December release, no exact date given yet.

Pretty big box for the HGUC Sinanju, hmm i don't see grenade launcher attachment for the beam rifle.

Does the HGUC Sinanju kit have the grenade launcher attachement included..?

Yeah well, I don't mind stickers, so long as they're not too big or obvious.

Sinanju looks epic. Might pick it up, if I have the money after 00.

Hobby Japan February 2011 issue, which'll be released this December around Christmas time.

Sweet. Hopefully they ship here in Singapore.

The parts are molded in blue and trans-green, am I right? I mean, past exclusive kits seem to be all molded in white.

Wow those mods look AMAZING.
Are they yours?

<----huge SD collector.

I don't have that many Sangokuden kits, but I can recognize about three of the "source kits."
I have no idea what the rest are though.

If they aren't yours, where did you get those pictures? Do you know all the source kits?

1. Hmm...It seems that you got the correct ideas to make it stand up
2. I can see your 00 Gundam collection displayed, Did any of your customers bothered to tinker with them?
3. I see you own a computer shop, Where do you live? Because the computer shop design looks somewhat common here in my country.

1. It was actually a surprise when I was trying to get a size comparison between my Reborns and the Raphael. I just made the Raphael stand up like usual and found out that it managed to stay up without it propping the GN Bazookas on its back. So I went ahead and tried out the limits of how well the Raphael can stand on its own.
- They're out of reach of my smaller customers, and most of my customers know enough to just look at them. I can proudly say that I'm perhaps the only net cafe with Gunpla on display
- Philippines, that's all I'm saying

There are certain people out there that seem a little too reckless with their cash - and its people like these that end up buying some of the odd kits out there.
I just placed an order for a HG OO Raiser Condenser Type...





(Bear in mind I already have HG OO Gundam, HG O Raiser, AND HG OO Raiser + GN Sword III)
