I'd suggest you start on HG 1/100, (even though I started with 1/144) unless you're good with details and stuff.

For HG 1/144, Cherudim is a good choice. Kyrios, on the other hand, is really bad. Loose parts everywhere. Get the 1/100 if you really want it.

Glue is not needed, unless you wish to tighten parts, which is unnecessary.

Panel-lining can be done with Gundam markers, very easy, most hobby stores have them. I remember I panel-lined my second kit, 1/144 00, with a pencil.

First of all are you getting 1/144 or 1/100 scale? That's really the first thing you need to figure out.

Well you're going to need panel lining for the "black detail lines", so I'd recommend ultra-thin-tip Gundam Markers. And if you're not going to paint them there's really nothing else to get, though I'd look into something like a pair of side-cutters to remove the pieces from the runners.

That's really the only difference in the models, but the animated versions are also very different in the legs and shield, especially the placement of the bits.

If you're talking about the model it's just a repaint, but the original design itself only appeared in the very first teaser for the movie.

1. Both Cherudim and Kyrios are great. Kyrios has more playability: it can transform, and has more weapons than Cherudim
2. Bandai kits do not need glue to assemble, they are snap-fit
3. You can check http://gunpla-inochi.com/tools/ to see all the kits you might need

Spoiler:
It only does in-series when the DRAGOONs are launched, but them being visible with the DRAGOONs still there are a new feature only for the PG, which in turn is a play on the partially launched DRAGOONs of the MG kit.

SF having the gold wings behind the DRAGOONs isn't new. It had them on the MG versions also. The only difference with the PG version is that the gold wings spread out more than the MG version.

Oh my god, the painting work I have to do on the GN Sword IV Full Saber is going to be insane. Looks like I'll have to spend some time on this...

Here's a culmination of all the Full Saber pictures so far for anyone who's missed it:

If they had shown all the different forms the Full Saber has, I would of liked it sooner. Why such a long wait?

It's not the first or the last time particular features have been withheld in the initial release only to be revealed later - everything in commerce is like that, Gundam included. Hell we're not even supposed to see the 00 Qan[T] Full Saber's 00V profile until December, and yet we already know it's features two months in advance. Another example: It took us over half a year from the initial reveal of the 00 Qan[T] to see that it does have combining Sword Bits into Buster Sword/Buster Rifle form. Or see Virtue/Nadleeh, Seravee/Seraphim and Raphael/Seravee II.

They're not going to reveal everything in the earliest possible time - it's the suspense of seeing what other gimmicks and goodies that something has yet to reveal that makes the wait especially tantalizing. Whether it's because some features haven't been finalized yet, or they're just withholding the features intentionally, we all need to wait for them to reveal what they want to show.

It's not like you're the only one who's waiting for these features to be revealed you know

GAH! There better be a full gunpla release of this kit. The new features didn't quite have me sold on it but that coloring did.

Hmm...I just noticed that it has an original GN drive instead of it's new one. Maybe this is post-movie? Or side story?
