yeah, i thought so too as i took a look at my own astray today^^ it looks like its the same slot but it just wont fit.
doesnt really matter though, the astray doesnt really need to be on a stand.

yeah, early release and pre-order or something like that :P
the stand came in a seperate box, too.

im also done with my MG ReZEL^^


good kit but pretty simple. it doesnt really have any weight issues but i do have one problem with it, the ankles are VERY lose... makes it hard to pose the legs.
the were also some pretty bad nubs, fixing them was hard because getting a marker in that color is pretty much impossible XP i mixed some black and turquoise acrylic paint, that worked pretty well.

but other than that its pretty neat and im happy to have it, especially at the reduced price!^^

saw the AGE models up for pre-order somewhere didn't understand what the grade was it said AG 1/144. So it's the same size as the HG models, but what's the AG for?

Looks like AG Means "Avanced Grade"

the thing seem interesting is
"The kit also comes with a Gage-ing chip to be used with Gage-ing Battle Base arcade game & Gage-ing Haro toy."

but the thing is.... we will definitely not have any of those here in US..... so it doesn't really matter

i was talking specifically about gundam age. there is no reason for me to get the new grades right now so i will get HG and MG kits only for that^^

Just passed by my local hobbyshop to check if the Hi-Nu was there. Apparently there is still no word from her supplier(from a different city) if that kit is still there with them. They actually get their stocks from other shops within the country. Makes me wonder if the kit is still available and this situation is already urging me to just order the MG 00 Raiser now(new arrival in a local online shop).

Speaking of the MG 00 Raiser(to those who have them already), are the LED's of the MG Exia Ignition Mode compatible for use on the MG 00 Raiser? Will the green LED affect the clear red head crest? Weight issues when you add the 0 Raiser and effect parts? And are there notable issues with the overall build or anything? I know, I've got a lot of questions, I just have this very strong need to know more about the kit. The experience with the MG Exia led me this way(loose parts and weak joints).

They're compatible because they're pretty much the same LED's, which can be interchanged between the MG Exia, MG 00 Raiser and MG 00 Qan[T].

-the LEDs are compatible.
-it does affect the head crest but only a tiny bit. you have a small hole bedind it so it glows green a tiny bit :P
-there are almost no weight issues at all. when you slap on the O raiser it can stand up straight without bending it forwards and its still very stable.
-the build is pretty much the same as the MG OOQ. its pretty much the same excellent inner frame so you will have the same awesome posability^^
-the only 2 problems i have are that there are some kinda bad nubs visible all over the kit and the part where you connect the arm to the shoulder piece is pretty weak so it cant hold the GN sword III in all positions.



right there. its just a thin peg in a polycap and it just cant hold the sword at times

I see thanks, I guess I'll put some putty to prevent the green light from showing on the forehead. Does the arm easily pop off when you try to move the arms and/or when the GN Sword III is equipped?

you dont need any putty, they give you 2 different silver stickers to put behind the crest^^ one that says just OO gundam and the other says OO raiser complete. you can choose them depending on whether you want to display it as the OO gundam or the OO raiser.

the arms dont easily pop off. the connection is strong enough to keep the arm on at all times but at the same time too weak to support the GN sword III in a horizontal pose in front of the body.

well, it's not entirely finish, i just finish the booster part, but when i put that on the stand..... i totally see the balance issue. and the booster.... sure didn't feel like i'm putting together a PG kit..... it feel more like putting a GP03D. it's detail enough, but not enough pcs.......
