Strip down the armor of the Sinaju, fix Destiny's Wing on it and you are about half way done.

Nope, it's not a typo: The HG GN Archer WILL be released before the HG O-Raiser.

Has there been any word on whether or not a kit will be made of the Alvaaron?

Asides from a highly convincing fanmade promotional image a while back, no official plans for a HG Alvaaron has been announced.

The Alvaaron and Alvatore weren't made into anything, and that pisses me off.

They would have made FANTASTIC MSIA figures.

That was a fake advertisement

And it is highly unlikely to be released now that the show enters Second Season

That's just as well.

Knowing the size of the kit even at 1/144, plus the fact that it would be goldpaint-plated, the Alvaaron would be far too expensive and thus, would have only a tiny market. Bandai would have trouble making its money back.

It would be on the very bottom of list of things to release as a kit.

I think the economy would have to get better for Bandai to do a gold plated Alvaaron XD. The 1/100 Akatsuki set came out a loooooong time after GSD ended so we might have to sit on the bling-bling GM for a while..

We're talking about the Alvaaron, aka the MS, and not the Alvatore, aka the Mobile Armor A HG Alvaroon wouldn't be that expensive to make, considering all the measures Bandai's been doing recently.

Well...

My argument is, that paradoxically the gold paint and the large mobile armor outershell might make it expensive, but it would also be its ONLY selling points. Without either one, Alvaroon would still sell badly for having "missing" components.

Yes, the Gold paint can go, but one way or another the Alvaaron MA would probably be necessary to justify the purchase.

Well, one could picture a cheaper Alvaaron by itself, and a more expensive kit including the Alvatore - akin to how the Dynames and Exia are available both separately and with their matching GN Arms kits...

I wanted to buy a gunpla to show some financial support for making 00 an amazing series so far. However, I've never purchased a gunpla, and my only experience with any kind of model is helping my friend build a snap together model (shining gundam I think). So my questions are, where can I buy a 00 gunpla in the US, and what would be a good model to start off with? Also, do any models come with English instructions, or are they all in Japanese?

Thanks in advance.

Finally finished/gave up on my mg strike today.

Built it while a while back but never bothered to tidy it up or add all the transfers until now.

Some of the placement of the transfers isnt the best but then i was never really that good as putting them on in the first place.



Have my titan MKII to finish now although it came with strange transparent plastic tranfers so im sure it'll be a nightmare
