Lack of articulation with recent Mg's?????
Haven't noticed that one, I started to build MG AGE-1 Normal a few days ago so if i have these issues i'll mention them, but what i've seen on pictures with dalong, all have great to superb articulation. It's not like we are back in the days of the early MG's. Recent Mg's are more articulation then the old benchmark MG Strike so it will be good.

As for the inner frame: "frankly my dear, i don't give a damn"
it's a nice gimmick but how manny of you actually build a MG to display the inner frame???? I never take of the armor parts again once a MG is completely finished and put in a glass display.

Honestly, i dunno. I do keep my shelf-diving bastard of a force impulse with the innerframe fully exposed next to my non-shelfdiving fully built force impulse, so many pieces of the frame was damaged on the first one that i bought a new one and salvaged it for pretty much all its worth, minus the inner frame.

... so i guess detailed inner frames do have some use?

If anything, the Gundam kits of recent years (in fact, almost anything made in the 2000s) has insane articulation compared to say an action figure. In fact, articulation is one of the main reasons why I like Gundam kits. Sure, it may come at the expense of having to spend the extra effort building your figure, and also the possibility of loose joints/parts, but articulation is one feature of a Gundam model kit I do NOT expect to be complaining about, and definitely will not.

EDIT: HGUC Banshee Norn. Looks cool but I'll wait for Destroy mode.

Spoiler for HGUC Banshee Norn:

When it has that shield on its back that seriously reminds me of a shark.

Perfect excuse for me to get another Banshee set and paint the Psychoframe green rofl, then ill have 4 awesome banshee kits on my shelf

Oh yeah I want a jegan now, the thumbs down it did in the promo vid was priceless

Bandai, plz make a normal Jegan Type D (or whatever the model number is that appears in UC) with a thumbs down hand, I would pay for that

Destroyed some decals here and there, but they aren't that obvious and I kinda feel lazy soo, whatever :P
care to ask... how many layers of top coat did apply to your Sinanju to get that super matte finish??

i always do a first layer of gloss to protect the waterslides, and then i do the rest of the layers in matte, but even after one or two i canīt get that kind of finish....

Thnak you...

Unlike the previous HG Banshee Unimod, the HG Unimod of Banshee Norn looks menacing because it actually has functional weapons.

The question now is: will the Banshee Norn Desmod’s frame be green or yellow?

Yes, I do use gloss to protect the waterslides as well. Then a layer of matte. usually, it's two coats, but the last coat is just a touch up for areas that haven't gotten proper coating.

I think the problem lies on the brand. I use Tamiya's TS-80, how about you?

That Coversion kit has been around for a long time now.

Really good, but given it uses the Wing Zero EW as the bsae and how stylized it's wing's and shoulders are you can barely even say it's the TV version.

Granted I love it, but I love it for many reasons that every TV fan would hate the thing.

Tallgeese is awesome. I'm really a fan of those...well, what can you call them...thruster-pod-wing-things-on-its-back? Yeah that covers it. I should buy it to go with my Wing, but right now I'm a little tight on money (not to mention I still have my backlog to keep me occupied)

Probably yellow. Regular Unicorn seems to retain its red frame colour, going by the episode 6 trailer. I prefer the yellow on Banshee as well, IMO the green looks horrible on it.

Great poses and crystal clear pictures always makes your photos a joy to watch . Nice RG Zeta and nicely colored pilot you got there.

Yeah, I'm not really a fan of the green-framed Banshee too, but I also think that some variation would be nice. In short, I'm torn between preferring yellow or green on Norn .

NICE! Makes me want to do my RG Strike Rouge already

@nike

BTW! May I add something to your list? Since you have trans-am version of Exia and 00-Raiser, don't you want MG Qan[T] Trans-am, MG Qan[T] Quantum Burst version, MG Qan[T] /w Full Saber Trans-am, MG Qan[T] Quantum Burst version and MG 00 7/S G Inspection colors?


Spoiler for MG Sinanju:


Shield, rifle and bazooka left. I still have to buy gattling guns XD

Wow, this comparison picture of a painted Rozen Zulu next to the out of the box Rozen Zulu really highlights how badly Bandai did on this kit. It also shows just how good looking the Rozen Zulu is.

One could argue that this is a model kit and not a toy. If you aren't happy with the looks you can always paint it. The HG Delta Plus doesn't have anime accurate colors as well for example. It's a lot darker than the MG.
However, I really don't understand why they used a brown-ish color instead of purple for the Rozen Zulu... That part I can understand, there is a difference between a different shade of the original color and using a different color all together. In that regard the Rozen does look pretty bad. But still, you can always just paint it yourself. And in this case it really isn't difficult.
