Yes. It comes with 2 red LED's total, but the 00 Raiser has spots for 5 total. =D
I got myself a bunch of red and green ones; enough to totally light up all my 00 MG's...all of them..

MUHAHAHAHAHAHAH

I have one too, but the reason behind it is it's effing expensive O.O

I made an album for the IPMS Invites that was held last Feb 7-10, 2013. I kinda got lazy in searching for every Gundam related entry so please bare with the large amount of aircraft and armor kits if your not interested in those.

The waiting game for:

MG Tallgeese EW
MG Tallgeese II
MG 00 Raiser

...from GG Infinite...

>_<
It'll be worth it since I won't be buying much GunPla for a while after.

My stuff came in. I don't know, whether to be "happy", or frustrated...

I bought a lot of these kits, wanting to do major work to them(Articulation etc..), which means months of labour between work and sleep. Ah well, suffer for the cause lol.

Your answer is already in the quote... Did you read it, or just look at the picture?

Answer is not in the quote. If you meant that it's because you were going to be doing a lot of modifying to them, then that's great and all. But there are RG versions or better yet MG of them.

The HG Seed and HG Seed Destiny line are notorious for their bad proportions among other things.

And with Seed Remastered finished airing and Aile Strike MG getting a remastered version, you could pretty much expect Bandai to "remaster" the other MG's as well.

I think this clearly states, what I want to do.

As for better kits. Yes there are better kits. I own the RG Freedom already. I want to recreate the articulation, as well as extensive modifications to the suits themselves.

I enjoy master grade builds, I just prefer to build 1/144 scale. It might seem foolish but, I honestly enjoy working on the smaller scale, with more limitations. It makes me feel more accomplished, once finished. That and if I ruin a kit, at 15-25 dollars, it's not hurting my pride.

MG are better IMO.
Why?

- bigger parts is easier to manipulate, paint, modify, etc
- more details
- more gimmicks
- better color separation
- better articulation
- fewer kits so you buy less kits but each cost about 2x of 1 HG kit

That's good for you. I didn't ask for your reasons as to liking MG over HG. I answered why I, prefer to build HG over MG. Also, why I bought those so called "bad" hg kits.

Well I was not sure whether you were going to mod the proportions as you did not explicitly say so (the proportions are the biggest hits agains these kits, the articulation is fine, I have seen HGUCs with worse lol)

Oh and if you could please post pics of your WIP with the modding, I take interest in seeing how ppl do it as my skills in such are nonexistent ^^
