They put the wrong sword on the normal exia, that's all.

Try your local hobby-shops. I think itíll be cheaper there since old kits like those are often on sale or something. You don't have to worry about shipping either. I have MG God, and I bought it for more-or-less $20 at a local shop (standard price, not on sale).

Problem is that my area doesn't have hobby shops. Where I used to live.. I lived literally like 5 minutes away from Gundam Planet.

=D

Not here though. >_< So I have to do online.

Then look for various local online hobby-shops in your country. Look for a good deal. Surely GGInfinite isnít monopolizing gunpla business in the US, right? From my experience, local online-shops is always cheaper than importing (and less hassle) unless youíre doing gunpla business too.

I don't think that GG Infinite is monopolizing the market, but they're becoming the most famous I think amongst many modelers.

Well, I ended up deciding to get only:

MG GF13-017NJ SHINING GUNDAM
MG GF13-017NJII GOD GUNDAM

Which I think is more than enough for the G Gundam line. I managed to find it being sold by a seller on eBay that I have on my favorite seller list, and he sold it to me at $50 total (including shipping price) brand new. =P

Now I just have to wait for those as well as late July/early August when I should be receiving from GG Infinite:

MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG AGE-2DB Gundam AGE-2 Double Bullet
Action Base 1 (Black)
MG Launcher/Sword Striker Pack RM Ver. (online exclusive)



MUHAHAHAHAHA

Now there's nothing (MG GunPla wise) that I want. Well at least til kits from my wish list are released.

Im thinking of getting a 1/100 NG to give a somewhat custom color scheme to (Or some minor color changes based on the mech)

I know the 1/100 NG 00 kits and HG 1/100 EW kits are pretty nice (00 for overall and EW for sculpt and details)

Already have these 1/100 NG/HGs
-Tallgeese 3
-Vent Saviour
-Red Frame

I was thinking about maybe the 1/100 Overflag, change the white to silver and add some other silver apps where I feel it will look good

Or maybe the 1/100 NG 00 Gundam, then practice masking to paint on details like in the Designer color versions (the stripes and stuff)

Any suggestions?

1/100 HG Avalanche Exia
1/100 HG Dynames gundam
1/100 HG Tieren Ground Type

Teiren? (I know what it is, but the kit??)

Hmmm the Astraea sounds like a potential candidate (white one)

1/100 Tieren is one of the best kits from 00 1/100 NG line. While still true to the original shape and design, it's a solid kit with superb articulation and arsenal. Heck, it even looks good and badass if you like tank-like monoeye MS.

I have to completely agree, the rough surface on the armor plates is fantastic. If only tieren wasn't so lowsy portrait in the anime it would have been even better

best 00 gundam kit i built, but you got to love the design

Personally, I never found the 1/100 No Grade kits to be that good. They're just HG kits with bigger parts. I would probably opt to get MG's and HG's if I were you.
