Well I either started in 2008 or 2009, after watching gundam 00, but this year, I got serious with all the painting and stuff, now I've seen loads of the UC series.

started last year,during the first season of Gundam 00 i see a kyrios model kit 1/144 at a festival of comics,anime and games..

then i bought a Dynames,Throne Zwei,Nadleh... then I try the 1/100 scale with a Avalanche Exia and a MG Strike noir,recently a MG Wing Gundam zero custom and MG Astray Blue Frame

now i'm working on a "missing link" between the Astraea and the Exia with an Astraea and the junk of Avalanche...
for my birthday(already passed by a month) some friends with other people took me as a gift an Arios and Arios Designer edition both 1/100..
i'll work on "them" in the summer o in september... to break the summer's study or september's exams... ^^

Going back in time a little bit farther:

I started waaaaay back in the early 2000s, not sure what year to be honest.

Got interested after viewing Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz.
As a result, my first kit was HG 1/144 Wing Zero Custom

I started in 1995 with SD kits. The first Gundam series i watched was F91. I then started my collection of 1/100s when I played SRW 4 on the PS which spurred my on to look into other Gundam series. Since then, I've never looked back

I remember along time ago Gundam Wing was on TV. I only began getting interested in Gundam, is when Seed came on TV i think it was about 05/06 (ish?). My first two kits were NG 1/144 Strike Freedom and 1/100 Destiny Gundam.

my first one is Infinte Justice in 1/144...damn it that 1) two sabers cannot be connected 2) Color is a bit off (I never paint) 3) The backpack is causing a posing problem

From this experience, I learned to check the model at dalong since it shows a complete model without painting...and I started to choose a model that doesn't have a huge backpack...my second model, RX 78-2 in 1/144 is a thousand times better

now I am waiting for HGUC ZZ..the backpack should be ok since it fits tightly in the back of zz (unlike infinite justice)

I bought by first kit around 2006, but they were bad so.... Bought them for nostalgia (1997 Gundam Wing watcher here.)



HG Exia and JG Graham's Flag around 2007 (or was it 2008?). They were cleanly built, but with no added colours or paint.

My recent kits nowadays are HG Kyrios and HG Freedom Gundam.

HG Freedom is so much better than HG Strike Freedom, of course after it got painted.

I started January 2008 and watched Gundam Wing series before way back but Gundam Seed prompted me to build and paint Gundam kits. Thus, my first painted Gundam kit is the HG Force Impulse Gundam.

If anyone want to discuss the business aspect over Gunpla, here's a chart listing the revenues generated (in billion yens) from the eras of end-SeeD to end-OO over a 7 year period :-

This does not bode well, we are looking at a third CE series if this trend doesn't go away.

I don't think its about 00 vs seed chart. It's about how many revenue gunpla was generating since 2003.

MG Deathscythe Hell Custom Announced

Nice, I hope we'll see the EW Gundams get MG treatment as well.

Right I forgot, Bandai still makes most of its money of off UC stuff. I had my US bias that mostly the recent stuff is being sold. I assumed that Bandais sales mostly consisted of the current/previous series.

Ngee Khiong is wrong: the Happinet online item page describes the original Gundam Deathscythe (confirmed by the model number), see the shield claws and effect parts affected to it (and the cloak is absolutely not mentioned).
