Sick man! Where do you buy your figures? They caught my eyes... XD

On the other hand, while browsing through YouTube, I found this very interesting channel. It features a series of ... web drama associated with gunplas. O_o The series is called "Gunpla Family Web Drama." They're all in Japanese, but very entertaining to watch. Enjoy.

No, they aren't. I usually just do some panel lining and a bit of detail painting to my models. One could see that the interior of the funnels in the pack of the MK-II are painted red, for instance. In the case of Hyaku Shiki, I guess the gold plate is cool enough not to try to mingle with it. If I wanted to make my own ver. of gold plated Hyaku Shiki, I'd probably buy the one with ballute system :P

MS 8th Team FTW. I am waiting for the moment when I finally find some time to get the series and watch it really.

Yeah, I've seen that already. Those people are pretty wacky XD
As for my figures, I've bought them on ebay.

Here's a bunch of other pics of my Gundam collection:

Damn you Sir Dearka. I've now ordered Hyaku Shiki and whilst I was at it had a look at Akatsuki and ordered that. It's not like I didn't already have a massive order ongoing at HLJ, and that's just added to it -_-;

There's nothing more satisfying than having a decent consistent collection of Gundam goodies I say you should be happy with the Hyaku Shiki. It's an amazing kit and one of my top 3 favorites.

EDIT: Now I gotta get a HG 1/100 Aegis. Geez, zomehow I find it so difficult to do so. First I ordered the item but it did not arrive, and then I asked a person in Asia to buy it for me. With no result.

Is that Hyaku Shiki a Master Grade? Sorry if it's a dumb question. I kinda want something better to build, felt disappointed with the last kit I just finished..

Crossbone Gundam Full Cloth was the kit I just built a few days ago. A page or 2 back I mentioned my problem with it.

At least I know that I was lucky not getting it. I'm kinda clumsy, so I'd definitely spoil the kit.

Thanks for the link. To be honest, I'm just trying to gather the first five "Heliopolis Gundams". But maybe I shall think about buying some more SEED 1/100 MGs. Like Destiny or Impulse. Still struggling with a lousy ebay seller over my ordered MG Freedom.

I think I shall just sign up in HLJ before the May Impulse release comes

No intention of buying Strike Freedom, though. Partially because I was not impressed with its entrance in the last episodes of Destiny. Same goes for Infinite Justice. If the MG Freedom reaches me, I shall get the Justice. Otherwise, I shall just give up on Freedom and Justice, too. I'm a strange person . But to be honest this is what I'd consider my full, satisfactory collection:

1/100

HG Strike
HG Blitz
HG Buster
HG Aegis
HG Duel
HG Gunner Zaku
HG Dynames (yes, the one MS I want to get from 00)
MG MK-II Titan's Color ver.
MG Hyaku Shiki (my two favorite MSs in Zeta)
MG Destiny
MG Force Impulse

1/144

HG Blaze Zaku Phantom Dearka Elthman Custom
Fix Figuration GP03S Stamen + Weapon System


Once I get all of this from the list (as you see, I have most of it already), the rest is just an enjoyable addition to my expanding collection. Generally, I was aiming at getting everything Dearka-related (my nick tells it all) and I ended up setting new collector's aims But I'm a big kid, you know. I know when I have to stop. :P But as the last series showed, I tend to add things that impress me to my little plamo family. Today I want 1/100 Dynames and a 1/20 Lockon figure. Tomorrow some other mecha anime shall awaken my urge to collect toys

Me thinks that Drei should have included some Stealth Field clear parts. The parts don't even have to be big. Drei looks too "ordinary" to me. At least Eins had the bug gun, and Zwei has the sword (no moving Fangs tho...lame). Drei has....errr Stealth Field pose with no Stealth Field!!!

Great collection. I have to buy such glass furniture for my kits real soon.
Cool Destiny there, mate. And Savior somehow impresses me, too Maybe...

I can also see the yellow Hyaku Shiki there. It's the one with ballute system, right? And the MG Hi-Nu Gundam. Nice.

And your ver. Ka Wing just made me wonder whether I should really buy it. Looks awesome.

to anyone with the MG Destiny: is it easy to loosen the wings? Especially the main section (with the black bit). On the 1/100, it is only 1 hinge, and it's already loose from posing and reposing a few times.

and now I need to decide between the normal and the special editions. Grr, so many to buy... MG Impulse, MG Destiny, Flag, the Thrones *wallet disintegrates*

Seems that I'm not the only one having problems with loose parts of Destiny. In my HG 1/100, the handle in the green cannon and the "male parts" that attach the weapons to the pack are so loose they can barely hold.
