How about MG Epyon & MG Wing? Those are also variable MSs. Are their joints rather flimsy too? I'm concerned coz I plan to buy them.

i could tell you the MG Epyon is actually better than i expect when it come to standing on it own. the wing is actually quite heavy, but they redesign this wing so damn big that it actually touch the ground, so it pretty much could be act as the third leg, lol
however, when you try to pose it on a stand, it actually become a little problem, since the hip joint is a bit different from the other the little part that hold the suit on a stand can't really hold all the weight.
for MG Wing, i could only tell you the ver. ka. which i don't found any major problem at all. i don't know about the new version tho.

those two are alright. their transformation isnt as complicated, you just twist around a few limbs and thats it^^ i have the MG wing EW and the MG wing zero EW.
but models like the ReZEL, the zeta or the delta plus transform in a much more complicated fashion. the entire frame is built to transform which makes it a little flimsy most of the time...

edit: id like to note though that the ReZEL is still in stock and 40% off at HLJ^^ despite its rather week ankles its still an awesome and rather unique looking kit and i can totally recommend it! http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN965298

Just arrived today. Bought it in the online site of a local hobby shop within my country because it was discounted.

I still don't know why I bought this one just now after nearly a year since its release.:heh:

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2011-08-16 07:15

Man, seeing that, I wish I had extra money to buy 00 Qan[T] Metal Build. It looks georgeous. :love:

Oh yeah, thanx for your previous replies Chiu fan, Skyboy & Appel! :)

OOQ metal build? i dont think there is a model like that. the only metal builds so far are the OO gundam seven sword/g, the O raiser and soon the rx-78-2 gundam "the origin" version.

i also just mixed some paits to get rid of the nubs on my MG delta plus. they were REALLY nasty on that kit and i just had to get rid of them XP they were SUCH an eyesore to me!

Ohh? It's not? So, maybe what I've seen is not a Metal Build?! My bad, I gotta recheck. :heh:

Good luck with the paint. Post me the result ^^.

It's not from a link actually. I saw it in a store and from the size & composition, it looks like metal build. Still, the owner of the store likes to mod his models, so maybe it's just a mod of Metal Build 7 Sword or something else. I forgot to ask him. :confused:

yeah, probably. only the frame is made of metal as far as i know so it would be easy to mod the rest with pieces from the MG OOQ.

That's a card from a set that was being promoted with Gundam AGE.

Well, here comes another barrage of HG 1/100s. Some said that this is not the final box-art though.

That's not the boxart. That's a Gundam TRY Age card.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2011-08-16 11:09

Really?? I knew there's something suspicious about this. My Bad :D

Appel 2011-08-16 11:41

Looks cool. And I see that the paint-job are done well.

The question is: which form do you prefer to display?

the MS mode. the waverider looks ok and is rather stable but i just prefer the looks of the MS mode^^

Zero Hurricane 2011-08-16 13:53

I also agree. I myself prefer to Mobile Suit in the normal form rather than transformed.

skyboy928 2011-08-16 14:34

come to think of it, it's seem whenever if there's a successful Macross series, Gundam will have a transformable kit eventually. wonder if that is actually true tho

An Astraea Type-F turned up on my doorstep today. This is fated to be dismantled for use in a couple of customs [the Type-F's a great kit to get if you're making custom OO kits, purely because it has about a dozen weapons] but I decided to have a bit of fun and assemble it as Exia.
So here's the 'Red Exia' you'd get from the Type-F. [I had the rubber shoulder bits left over from the Exia I used for my Virsago's joints].

Wow, Char's Exia!
Hmm...for a second there, I thought it was Trans-am Exia. ;)

Okay, to correct my previous mistake, here's the REAL (I hope) pics for:
GB 1/100 Gafran (did I spell it right?)

and GB 1/100 Genoace
