MMMMmmm....

I would say MK-II 2.0 or Ez8, these are my 2 favorite MGs hehehe

Turn-A was very fun to construct as well, much worth the money.

I thought Unicorn was about 60 US?

I just recommend Turn A because of all the fun stuff to play with. The rifle has its moveable parts, the chest leaves many options of configuration, like whether you want to put "laura's cow" in there or the missiles, etc.

I was searching for wires with the right shade of red and this was the best I could find. Although flexible, I find them too thin and the result makes it as if Nadleeh is having a bad hair day.

The vast difference in the design between Virtue and Nadleeh comples those who wants a complete collection for their 1/100 modles of mechs in the 00 line to get 2 sets of this kit.

And then, there's me who wants to show people here how fugly the Nadleeh is without the panel linings. Much less need to be said about the Virtue.

Alas you will not yet see a picture of my Hi-Nu Gundam, its the only Master Grade version I have bought yet, and that was only a week ago.
I can barely see anything on those pictures

Mk-II is without doubt a great choice. To me, a busy man, it also means less time devoted for panel lines :P

As for Turn A, I've never hided the fact that I don't like its design. I prefer Turn X from the same series. If I was searching for a kit "to play with" because of its intricacies, I'd rather choose Zaku 2.0.

hey, that HGUC Nu looks quite good, can't wait to get one.

Still no Unicorn, damn >_<, but I got one RX-78-2 OYW version, seems like a pretty solid build once 100% accomplished, I was quite interested in the leg frame, is like a miniature of the PG version

Just one question, are there any substantial flaws to be concerned about with the OYW version? I'm about to get one after all the talk about it. Not to mention, I've been watching 0079 and grown too fond of it. Awesome show btw..

Since I'm impatient in waiting for Bandai Hobby's English Site...

Anyone willing to translate this bunch of runes?

- Combining, interchangeable armaments come just like they are presented in the final battle
- Comes with attachable Exia specially made in gattai configuration(That's what I think it says, I feel it's too good to be true though)
- Big version GN sword can be swung like in the show, GN cannon extendable
- Comes with stand

Thanks, at least it confirms some of the features of the GN-Arms

The RX-78 is definitely a great decision. I've just finished my Unicorn and I gotta say that of all the MG I've got, I'm least happy about the unicorn... Partly because it didn't belong to any stories that is familiar to me, but also because most of the emphasis and effort were put on the transforming armor. The concept is cool, but it takes forever to transform from one stage to another, and if you've painted the model, then you probably don't want to transform again to avoid scratching the paint... There are no inner frame, and articulation is limited after the armor has expanded. My model just end up staying in a stand still pose all the time. :O

I've ranted enough. Next model is going to be a PG MKII, which should be a lot more fun.
