Not sure where you are located but the two sites above are great. I order from HLJ a lot. If you are in the states then you have some options as well here.

Gundamstoreandmore.com - Located in Michigan. Very nice prices. Slightly outdated stock, I think they just got trans am Exia MG in. For any older models (i.e. seed) This is your best bet.

Hobbywave.com - Located in Western Canada. Flat $10 shipping no matter how much or little you order (very nice feature when getting a lot) Fair prices.

Imageanime.com - Located closest to me in NYC. I take the train(45 min ride) in a lot of times to get my Gundams instead of waiting the whole day for shipping but meh. Their prices are a little higher than the others but they make it up with speed. They usually have the newest Gundams in stock no later then 5-6 days after it becomes available in Japan.

thanks Grimm and AaKkisa, ill have to go with the domestic choices of AaKkisa since i live in NYC so shipping will be lower. I have two questions. What is the difference of MSIA and HCM Pro compared to 1/144 HG. Are they better? What grade/scale is the best for 00 and SEED models under the 1/100 scale? (i dont have that much space for 1/100)

Here is a full profile of the TV version v.s. the EW (ver Ka) version

The EW / ver Ka conversion kits were released by B-Clue 10 years ago. From them we can see the "EW" MG will share a lot of common parts with the "Custom" MG, so chance of Bandai release the DSH-Custom MG is very high.

... I think that's the first time I've ever seen standing Heavyarms Ver. Ka. lineart. The one picture I usually see for it is the one where its holding its giant beam gatling.

CrimsonBlitz 2010-06-03 00:06

I dont kno if anyone else noticed but this is yet again another Bandi money Trap.. Look and compare the EW suits. Not much has changed on the main body. Only extras and wings and such. All the suits are basic repaints and slightly more detailed looks like they are gonna milk it. That means 17 Mgs and they need to build a MG Wing zero tv version.

LoweGear 2010-06-03 01:12

Given that the Ver. Ka Wing designs are over a decade old now, I don't think anyone ever doubted them being money traps. Just that until now Bandai seemed to have no intention of creating the rest of the line besides the Wing Ver. Ka., and the only model kits to have been created for them were resin conversions :heh:

Rising Dragon 2010-06-03 01:20

I'd be pretty happy if we got an Epyon Ver. Ka.. Course, that doesn't exist. *sigh*

I have another suggestion, Hobbysearch, they usually have alot of models in stock, and many of them are cheaper than HLJ, I also got quicker shipment from them (SAL) than HLJ (SAL) but that might have been chance and what not.

Oh yeah I also ordered a Rick Dom II to paint in special Char colours, silver with clear read over the top, to make it shiny.

Technically one does exist, but only as a single semi-real art created by Katoki in one of his artbooks, and in Bird Mode too. Although if the MG Wing Zero TV is ever released, you can bet the probability of an MG Epyon coming out to complement it.

Really? This image wouldn't happen to be online now, would it?

In fact it is, although I can't track the HQ version for some reason. I was able to find a low-res version of the image in question though:

It actually doesn't look like the Epyon at first glance, but its source, the Gundam Fix: The Works of Katoki Hajime artbook do describe it as the Epyon, made apparent by the heat rod tail.

Rising Dragon 2010-06-03 03:17

The more I looked at it, the more it came apparent that it was the Epyon, and not just with the heat rod tail. Thanks for posting that for me.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2010-06-03 04:05

So Katoki made an Epyon after all?
