That one i mentioned that i have has pretty much what you are looking for in a compressor, plus the automatic shut off is nice touch. HP-CS eclipse for $60.00 you have to tell me where to get cause im looking to get another one cause i hate switching out paints when i'm airbrushing. That is one thing you will notice about airbrushing is that you need to clean it good so you don't bleed any colours when changing paints.

Hmmm,how are we suppose to turn it into F2 anyways if we buy the Exia parts?Since there ARE no fully red Exia parts......unless.....oh no........they dont expect us to.....[DUNDUNDUN].

At least splashing everything red is easier than delicately coloring the traditional colors.
The Astraea will come with all Exia Parts, since it's cheaper to include unused parts than to make a completely new mold for the plates.

there's a used one on ebay right now going for $50 with no bids but a few days left, look it up its like iwata hp-cs pinstripe tool, thats also brand new, but the one I'm getting is from someone on hobby fanatics.

and in regards to the, smart jet, right? it's just a little pricey for me right now. so I think I met just get a cheap harbor freight compressor and save up for a better compressor.

Astraea Type F.... yeow, I really want this gunpla now... Too bad my whole Gundam money goes to MG Wing in April...

@Kelrys - The Regen Duel is the one kit except Hail Buster that I feel is worth buying. Nice choice.

Oh really? Tjhat's sad/ What I noticed in my Hail Buster that its articulation greatly improved since the first Buster. Especially the leg joints which are now much more flexible.

The pink color parts around the ankle of Regen Duel really restricts the leg movements.

Will consider Hail Buster, loving the colors.

Yup/It looks so badass now. And it is piloted by this Blue-haired Druggie which looks like a CE version of Fon Spaak

And as noted above, the kit will also include the V-fin to convert the Type F into the Type F2 (since technically the other parts needed to create the F2 are all Exia parts).

i am actually interested in mg unicorn with cage version. normal mg unicorn ova version also looks same if see their manuals. please help me choose, i am depending on you guys, onegai shimas!

i know it was the price for a 144 akatsuki that got me but i dont think the MS craze for me will last much longer. theres too many nice MS designs out there and insufficient storage areas to place models in my room . thanks, its good to know that HWJ has good prices for its products.

while we're on the topic of the hail buster, apparently it also has mirage colloid stealth. so far the only MS i know that have MC are the various ms in the blitz lineup and variations, astray mirages, hail buster and thr girty lue battleship line up. am i missing any other MS/MA or ship with it?

What are clear parts again? Do they mean extra transparent parts along with the regular parts?

Why are they cheaper than their original MG counterparts?

Yes, the MG Clear Parts campaign will include extra transparent parts along with the regular parts. As for the price, I guess that's the marketing gimmick

Some sort of advanced HG with new tech, higher price?

oh for crying out loud, STOP MAKING RX78, this is not milking a product anymore, this is like a milk cow ran dry of milk and they stick a grinder up it's milk sack and grind out what ever liquid it has in it!

LOL. I wholeheartedly agree.

I wish Bandai would do more with the 00 series like doing side story models (although they are definately improving with the new 1 Gundam and 1/144 Astraea).

I wonder if there is some rule that says the first Gunpla in a new series (or new tech) has to be a RX-78-2...

But the UC universe is the biggest "franchise" in terms of, well, everything from history to models. For another generation or so, it's not going anywhere, and with new additions like "Unicorn" to spark interest, it'll continue on for awhile. The models are more for the older buyers these days, IMHO, and they tend to like the stuff that they watched when still young.

00, SEED, and the others will have to wait their turn - assuming that they remain popular, of course. "GSD" is getting a collection release this month, I think, so a promotional push there might be good.

Edit: I'm kind of wondering what changes Bandai has in mind to make the "Master Grade" models more interesting than this new "Regular Grade". RG models look to sit between HG and MG, and being "real" seems to be the "go to" word for RG. If they push MG to be even more detailed, then what does that do for PG?
