Dammit, I haven't even touch my MG Duel yet. It's work, work and work T_T.

Btw, is there anybody here who want to buy that clear MG Blitz? I rolled my eyes when I saw it. I bet it's gonna be more expensive than the standard one. What's the appeal of that anyway?

Well, I bet you don't work nearly as much as I do and I bet you don't get underpaid like I do.

Seriously. Try working over 60+ hours a week and making less than $30,000 a year. Yea. Then tell me you work.



People like clear kits because you can see the inner frame. That's about it. And then there's that whole thing about it being clear.

Personally, I don't go with clear kits and kits with chrome detailing on the armor (like Hyaku Shiki) since the clear plastics are more brittle and the chrome detailed kits have the chrome stuff scratch off when you cut them from the parts tree.

It depends, Nike. I take it that you are paid more than $2000 a month, right? With that amount of money, you actually can have a decent life here in my country. Still, I don’t know the prices of things in your country. Say...how much do you spent for a cup of coffee there? I’m not talking about the expensive one you bought in a cafe/restaurant, but the one you get from those vending machines.

@Nike: I don't think there's a need to boast about your over working, under paid job again, we get it.

And just abit of advice but making some effort to change that in anyway you can, can go along way.
Even if it's hard to do anything about, if you put as much effort into changing your work life as you do posting about wanting a EXIA R2, I'm sure you'll be better off.

Personally the clear models don't appeal to me, as a simple gunpla model they really don't look nice at all.
And to make them look nice you'd have to paint them but then whats the point in getting "clear" if your gonna paint it?
As for price I expect it will be more, since the clear parts 00Raiser is about double the price of a normal one.
Altho I do think HLJ has the clear parts priced at about 5500 yen somewhere around that price.
What I'd like to see is the anniversary clear parts back, having a few clear parts was cool.

The same price at 4000 yen actually. But the catch is it will be an event-only release. Anyone trying to sell it at a range beyond 4000 is clearly trying to rip you off.

If they do like the colored clear MG RX-78-2, then will get it. This clear ver they term as "mirage colloid" ver

I mention before...time is how you plan to do your kit. Stop complaining

I'm now already starting RG RX-178 mkII Titan ver

Everyone here can have a MG Blitz with "mirage colloid" activated without spending any on that clear/translucent version. Even rrobbert184 has one.

Take a vacation away from your work AND internet and build all the way.

You are not the only one with a 60+ hours job /week.

If the pay isn't up to you linking find another job.

Hmm...
I am peeking at the forum from time to time, but what else could I say... I shall wait with comments till we have colored pictures.

Glad to see someone notices my absence, though. I kinda like being missed. Even a little ;P

TBH, Buster just might be othe only MG kit I got since three years or so. Started investing money in myself and gave up Gundam kits almost entirely. Even Duel and Blitz I didnt get though I'd love to have those, looking at your pics. Too beautiful to bear

More like $600 a month.
Yes. Pay is severely lacking and the thing is, jobs are very scarce.

I haven't had a problem with their speed. I have however continued to forget that now I have to not only pay for the item, but I have to go back to the website and do a seperate thing to get stuff to ship.

I was waiting over a week for my Cloud Strife and Squall Leonheart SD Play Arts Kai's only to check and realize that they hadn't even shipped despite me having paid for the items a full week before.

I typically go with Amazon or Gundam Guy for getting GunPla.. =D Based in the US, and I live in the US.

And with customs charges & wait time.. I think it's more of a value to buy from Amazon and Gundam Guy. Plus, I like to support the economy of the US since I live in the US and the economy here isn't that great (so is everywhere else..lol)

Firefox, if you've seen my posts in previous pages, you can see that I managed to finish quite a number of kits without taking any vacation . It's just my work has been increasing lately.

Well can't really fault them for that cause it's up to the company that they use to deliver to determine speedy delivery.
But I've not really had any problems, all been rather quick so far.

But yea, nice that the site is working very well now, however another problem I've got now is with shipping prices for some stuff.
It costs more to ship certain gunpla models than the model itself and it gets even more weird in that SAL ends up being the most costly way to ship some items!

However some stuff still seems to be reasonably priced, like the Duel and Blitz, thank god for that.
