i do panel line them but on the ex-s its just not very visible on the front. most pieces that i lined turned out to be hidden somewhere under more armor parts >_>
on the previous page you can see my wing up close. even though i hate that picture because i forgot one line on the knee :P

very sturdy actually. but thats not really a big surprise because you use about 15 or so screws while building it^^
the joints are stiff enough to hold all poses but also smooth enough to pose the limbs easily. only the big propellant tanks are pretty lose because they are just on polycaps. but other than that nothing pops off or falls down.
the only problem is that it is so very overloaded with stuff which makes posing kinda difficult.

ThoseGundam Guys.org

Just want to introduce another link for tutorials:

http://thosegundamguys.org/

It's a group of modelers in Southern California that gather to build, mostly gunpla. The site is an information site with tutorials and information about upcoming contest and model build gatherings

Also, for all you Southern California or folks close enough to Southern California, ThoseGundamGuys are presenting a Gundam Model Contest set for Saturday November 12, 2011 in Fullerton California. More details here: http://thosegundamguys.org/southern-...l-competition/

I think I'm on the verge of selling my PG Astray. Its built so I don't know if it will sell. It has bonus parts, as well as a bunch of stuff that I didn't build for it like the shield, rifle, and stand for katanas.

http://i54.tinypic.com/242wf7m.jpg

My issue though is the price the kits are going for that aren't built. An unbuilt one looks to go as low as $220. I got the kit for $250(?) when it was first released. I'd really like to get some extra money for the hours put into it.... IDK...

Why do you even want to sell it? That piece of awesome should be the crown of your collection, or close to it, right? And it's even the initial production version, so gone is gone...

I just need some money. I like the way I mixed the clear parts for it, but other than that, thats the only thing I like about it right now. Honestly, I'd like it more if it had a stand though. The only reason why I have it displayed is because I spent alot of time and money on it.

They're exclusives from the blogs I've seen it mentioned at. I don't think Bandai would make that a mass release.

And if they do, I'm gonna be pissed off.

The MG Exia in both the standard and Ignition mode are identical, thus if you already have an MG Exia, you can use the Exia Repair parts on one of them. And of course, the Ignition Mode has two LED's you can use for the Exia itself, or for the MG 00 Qan[T] and the upcoming MG 00 Raiser.

If you don't care much for such gimmicks though, then stick to the standard one.

Edit:

HGUC GM III announced:



And for those who were anxious about the MG Epyon's "lack" of beam sword...
