thats ok i guess, its less than what they want on ebay :P



i already posted that above :P



there is no ignition mode trans-am exia. its just the regular MG exia in trans-am colors with a red LED! it doesnt come with chrome-plated parts like the ignition mode version.

and if bandai releases this as a limited version only and wont sell it at other places in the future im pretty sure that they wont give us any more red LEDs.

Hm...

I still consider that "Ignition Mode" as it comes with the red LED unit.

i was wrong about one thing though, i didnt know that the weapons parts actually are chrome plated AND gloss colored in the trans-am version^^ there really isnt much of a difference then, the main feature of the ignition mode version are the parts for exia R1, anyway.

but still, i doubt that theyd give us a way to order red LEDs.

i was actually thinking maybe i should get those bootleg Gundam kit just so i could practice painting, like you said, they are cheaper (but how much cheaper exactly? since i never look at one.....)

If you need something to practice painting on, just get a Super Deformed kit.

Always support the real stuff so that:

a. they can continue to make more kits
b. maybe eventually lower the prices a little so they dont need to offset profit losses from bootleg sales
c. you'll feel better

bandai will be fine. in my opinion piracy like this should encourage them to make even better kits. if they can convince me to buy their stuff because of the superior quality i will buy it.
and about feeling better.... i bought 3 MG kits for the price of one. and thats including the distiny full blast mode :P that makes me feel REALLY good to be honest^^

haha, don't worried, it's not like i will ever stop buying kit from Bandai, after all, i already have well over 200 kits in total. they are all Bandai.
i want to practice my paint on expensive kit and ended up ruin it, so practice on the cheap stuff feel like no harm done.
at least until i get better at it.

same here. TT Hongli doesnt even offer the whole range of bandai kits, only about 30 different models or so.
i will buy stuff from bandai in the future. but if there is a kit that i want and i can get the TT Hongli version instead i will do so

If you want to practice painting, my suggestion would be to get HG's kits. They are cheaper, even NG's will still save you money, plus you still have both scales to practice on. Practicing how to paint you don't need a MG or a Rip off of a MG all you need is a piece of plastic.

Skyboy98 if your really wanting to paint and you are spending alot on kits.. save for a Airbrush and compressor this way you can at least customize your colours, and in the long run its saves you money cause your not spending it on Aerosols.

i was thinking about that, too. but i just dont paint often enough, it wouldnt be worth it for me :P i dont really want to paint anymore, only the necessary parts that look crappy out of the box.

get like a few paint brushes, some tamiya acrylic paint bottles (they are the ones with the x and then a number), paint thinner, droppers, paint stirers, paint mixing bottles... and then just hand paint everything..

=)

yes, that was my original plan until i learn about TT kit, even with TT kit, i might not bother with their MG, like you said all i need is a piece of plastic, so i might go with TT's 1/100 HG, that save me even more, but the only problem is lack of selection that i actually like.
as for airbrush, i guess that will remain to be seen, since i'm still new, and i got no patient, lol, and the worst part, i live in a basement, so airbrush not gonna do me good in health, as of now i bring it out door to do my spray paint.

i guess me and you really on the same boat, i did try to use the brush back then, the result was so bad that i toss everything away, lol.

thats the most effective and cheapest way in my opinion :P spray ugly parts and just top coat the rest^^ and even the top coat on unpainted parts isnt all that necessary since bandais plastic looks great most of the times.

You dont really need a selection if your buying rip off models. Its the painting part is your main concern so you have something to practice on, so when you have enough skill or confindence you can go and paint the ones you like..
I have the same problem when it comes to fumes. But when you spray with a air brush you have an option to use Acrylic paint and Acrylic paint is water based so no harmful fumes.. Tamiya Acrylics have a slight percentage of alcohol in their paint but opening a window will easily take what ever fumes out.

Thanks for the tip on the Tamiya acrylic paint bottles. =) I've used their spray paint cans and they were too toxic even with the gas mask w/ filters on the side and even when I went outside.

Oh and I guess a good way to practice painting is to use the paint on the plastic trees that you are left with after cutting the parts off.

well, can't say selection is not important, it's help create a right mood. beside even if it's cheap, it's still money, you don't want to buy a piece of trash and buy some paint and practice, even tho TT Kits is what you guys refer as bootleg, it's still a Gundam nonetheless.
if only i didn't throw away my oldest collection, i could have practice on them instead.......:(
