MS Gundam 0079 and Zeta Gundam both got 3 movie remasters (zeta being the awkward animation changes I mentioned)
Actually, that’s not what I meant when I said “mix old and new series” .

According to my order, I put The 08th MS Team right after MS Gundam so that he can have a break after watching 70s animation (of MS Gundam) by watching the more recent 90s animation (of 08th MS Team). After that, he can go back to a slightly old-school animation (of Gundam 0080) then go back to a more modern 90s animation (of Gundam 0083). Then he’ll get hit by a combo of 80s animation (of Zeta & ZZ) before enjoying a decent movie-level animation (of CCA). After that, he can enjoy the glory of Gundam Unicorn if he hasn’t done so already .

Just like you said, my recommendation above are all for the series (except CCA, of course). I wasn’t recommending him to watch any trilogy movies before watching the series.

On another note: MG Nu Ka Double Fin Funnel looks busy :



EDIT: So this is MG Nu's answer to Destiny's "Full Blast Mode" and SF's "Full Burst Mode" XD:

So my order of the MG 00 Raiser (Trans-Am version) along with 2 additional sets of the red LED lights arrived from GG Infinite!

I knew they'd have it! I mean yea I've seen it every now and then online, but they were asking nearly $300 (US) for it, and I got a much better deal over at GG Infinite.

Apparently, this guy was a really limited edition release, and not many were made which is why not many people had it for sale & the few that did were asking like way more than the actual YEN price.

Now all I need (well in terms of released kits anyway) is the MG Exia Trans Am then all my lead 00 Master Grade kit collection will be complete (so far).

I agree. If you're going to get the MG Nu Gundam ver. Ka, you should definitely also get the Double Fin Funnel set as well!

Oh and for those interested, I just posted up 3 GunPla related videos to my YouTube channel...

Ugh, I got to say I hate the Double Fin Funnel. One of the greatest parts of the Nu is the asysmtery, it makes the suit both unique and amazing. This is why I love the Nu far more then Hi Nu.

The Double Fin takes that uniqueness as well as making the unit way to busy for my taste. Will happily skip of over this.

I guess this is like the 00 Qan[T] in that it's asymmetrical that makes it so unique, when you attach the Full Saber, it just ruins the original appeal?

Agreed .

But if the Double Fin Funnel Unit is the only way I can get the Funnel effect-parts, I'll have to buy it eventually.

And that's how Bandai kinda guilts you into buying things... "...have to buy it eventuall..." mentality. =D

Anyway uh.. What are the best versions of all the lead Gundams & variations from the UC series?

It's funny cause I prefer the Hi-Nu over the Nu myself but in this case I do think the double fin doesn't quite suit the Nu, does take away that unique look which is weird still cause tbh I wasn't a huge fan of the Nu before this new MG.

You know what I'd like to see is a MKII with a funnel or dragoon system.

I'm only buying the Double Fin Funnel set mainly because of the effect parts that it comes with. Of course the stand and everything to help it pose better is appreciated. But the extra fin funnels which is the main feature of the package is.... err.. nevermind

RX-78-2 MG 2.0 (I actually prefer Ver Ka or One Year War simply because I hate the exagerrated anime hands and shoulders) is widely considered the best Gundam and is really just the Perfect Grade in a smaller scale.

Gundam MKII MG 2.0 - I do believe the 2.0 is better then the RG, however if you are a fan of the 1/144 Scale then by all means go with it.

Zeta MG 2.0 - Real Grade seems great but the 2.0 is amazing and really nails the Zeta as well as coming with a bad ass stand on top of it having the Mega Cannon.

ZZ HGUC - MG while it looks good just standing there and in G Fortress is overall terrible. Thing is a brick, and way worse then something like Unicorn as well has having other issues. The HGUC completely nails the look and feel of ZZ at a cheaper price and overall an amazing Model. ZZ is what all HG's should aspire to be.

Nu Ver Ka - Even if it some how turned out to be a bad kit (it won't be) it will be better then the origianl simply because of the look of the kit. The only reason why it should even be considered would be if you have the Evolve type look.

Unicorn OVA/Full Armor - Given the Ver Ka is out of Print you wouldn't have an easy time getting that anyway so your choice is between the HD Color or OVA. Full Armor depends if you like the Green Phycho Frame and all the weapons. HGUC's are nice but they just don't compare to the MG's.

F91 MG - Good kit, some people have loose issue's others don't. Overall it's a Seabook suit so you should get it.

Crossbone MG - Crossbone X1 is the one I would recommend. Full Cloth is just to busy and all the extra hassle isn't worth it. The simplicity of X1 and the fact it's piloted by Seabook makes it the clear winner in my mind.

Victory - This one is bit harder, the MG Ver Ka would natrually be it for alot of people, but the crazy thing is the HG 1/100's from Victory are way higher quality then the G/W/X kits in my mind and if you are afraid of how loose the Ver Ka is to many people then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Victory HG.

Ground/Ez-8 - I would totally wait on the EZ-8 coming to HGUC and hopefully the up coming Ground RG.

I honestly have no clue when it comes to the GP01, but don't get GP02A, the thing deserves way better then the current MG offers.

Just want to point out that there is a HGUC GP02A (and another with an MLRS backpack) which is way better than the MG. The rest of the GP series kits (MG, HGUC) are all dated.

What they are doing with the Nu double Fin Funnel set makes me worry about the Destiny Real Grade. I can see it now, Wings of Light are an online exclusive.

The HG and SD came with the Wings of Light, but at the rate this is going I think you might be right. Sigh.

Oh and I'd like to ask for a favor...

Of the UC universe, can anyone give me a list of all the main leads?

Zeta MG 2.0

Is the ZZ MG bad?

Nu Ver Ka
Unicorn OVA/Full Armor

Also, isn't Amuro the lead from Gundam UC universe? So which ones does he pilot?

You should be asking these questions in the Q&A thread.

Saw some new pics of the Stein and it's looking good, will def be a Gunpla custom builders wet dream me thinks.
So much they could do with it.
But still rather expensive imo and didn't think I would say this but I'm starting to think on whether or not I should get it.

Stien is looks mighty amazing. Honestly can't wait to get it. I'm really loving the White suit theme they have going the next few months.

Nu, Tallgeese, Tallgeese RD, Stien and even Delta Gundam Kai all make great use of largely white color schemes and I really love them for it.
