And I have plenty... I have 9 LED's..

2x Exia Ignition Mode
1x 00 Raiser
6x i bought separately..

looks like i need a few more

those LEDs are just way too expensive in my opinion. well, for us non-japanese people at least :P i dont want to spend that much money on something that i wont use anyway.

suiton629 2011-08-23 13:43

i guess...

but i try to snatch then up if they can be sold for less money.

=P

I bought 120 1.8mm LED bulbs for 33.85US including shipping, which equates to .28/LED Making your own little housing, wiring, and battery set up to fit anywhere on the MG is fairly easy.

How much are the LED sets from bandai again?

MoonLightShadows 2011-08-24 03:53

I got abunch of watch batterys for the 1/100 00 Raiser, MG Exia and MG GN-X. Then relized the GN-X Doesnt come with any leds :heh:

Better late then never? MG 00 Quanta. (havnt checked if the Quanta has LEDs?)

the OOQ doesnt come with any LEDs :P only exia has 2 (green for the ignition mode version, red for the trans-am version) and the OO raiser comes with 1 green LED

The 1/100 (but not MG kit) 00 Gundam or 00 Raiser also have the LED too, but unfortunately less compatible

The No Grade 00 kits do have LED's, but they don't fit the Master Grade 00 kits. They're different.

Zero Hurricane 2011-08-24 06:53

Well, that's because the size difference and qualities? And by the way, did the MG Exia Ignition Mode's LED compatible with the 00 Qan[T]'s?

Did? It is compatible...

The 2 LED's that come with the Exia MG Ignition Mode and the 1 LED that comes with MG 00 Raiser works with MG Exia, MG 00 Raiser, and MG 00 Qan[T].

You can buy the LEDs separately online at places like Gundam Guy.

http://gginfinite.com/LED_Set_-_MG_1...Model_Kit.html
They have it for $19.75 each. A bit expensive, but the most reasonable I think right now if you don't count other sites that I have not found them being sold at.

http://www.imageanime.com/ledpaformg00.html
They have it for $25 each. Ultra expensive. Sold out at the moment though.

What's with all these gundams that are simply OP even stupid kids power these machines up with their unlimited supply of angst?

Where's the mono-eye love, washed up middle-aged man, of the metal cages, moving artillery platforms, or in other words, the eggtastical hulks of water MS built by Zeon? To compete with those fly-like gundam suits that ignores all laws of physics, I must make my earthly bound water-use only floating metal ball of many photon cannons, more bling than customary.

For those of us who prefer 1/144 scale models, not quite. Though undoubtedly the MG Freedom remains one of the best MG kits of recent history.

I guess I'll get the RG for the Gundams that didn't make it to MG. Ok, no more beating around the bush, Bandai, gimme my RG Justice!

i agree, the RG line gives people who like 1/144 kits better something that even a little bit beyond MG quality! completely articulate fingers, more variations in the color of the armor panels and an extremely flexible frame^^ i still prefer MG kits though. i want to have something big for my huge manly hands! >=D

its his choice if he wants 1/144 kits. i mean, many people dont have the money or the space to have a big MG collection!

i think its unfair to compare a kit from 2004 to a kit from 2011. the design simply wasnt as good back then.
but for its time the freedom was a brilliant model! the wing design is just awesome^^ its just limited because bandai simply didnt have the technology they have today.

i think the freedom stacks up very well to the newer kits. it doesnt have a lot of flaws unlike newer kits that fall apart when you just look at them funny (MG deathscythe), doesnt have horrible ankles (like the MG exia) or breaks when you pull off a weapon (OO Qan[T])

well yeah^^ where else is it supposed to store that huge thing? XD that it can attatch that big thing on its shoulder is one of the reasons why im not too excited about this kit. the OOQ had weight issues, this thing is going to be a nightmare, too.

Maybe not as bad since there are 2 huge things on the side to balance the kit. And I always get Action Base to display my kits.

i dont think the other weapon is enough of a counterweight to balance it out. and even on an action base the OOQ tends to lean to one side in many poses... thats a big disadvantage of models that are designed like that :T

If you look more closely, you'll notice the GN Buster Sword II touches the ground.

true. but it wont touch the ground on an action base! and then you will have to deal with the weight issues.

It honestly depends on how they design them. If the GN Buster Sword II is largely hollow and they load the GN Blaster with lots of smaller pieces, the weight should even out.

that would be the logical step but knowing bandai they might not do that XP i mean, the sword already has that big clear piece in it and its supposed to house an LED unit. if you put in the LED they can make the other weapon as heavy as they want, its not going to be balanced.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2011-08-24 11:05

I don't know about you guys, but if I have that 7 Sword MG, I'd like it to actually grab and hold its mega weapons (whether it's the Big Gun or the Big Blade). The question is: will the frame live up to my expectation? If the answer is yes, then the next question is: how long will it live up to my expectation (read: holding those mega-weapons) before the frame and the joints crumbling down? One hour? A day? Five minutes?

thats the other thing. the OOQ/OOR frame is really REALLY aweosme but depending on how bandai designed the sword internally that might be a pretty big issue... i mean, it cant even hold the GN sword III in some poses.

Action base will fix most of the balance issues...

how? propping it up by the crotch wont change the fact that the sword is still super heavy^^
like i said, my OOQ is on an action base as well and its always leaning towards the side with the shield.

of course, most people will display it with the sword in its hands but that just shifts the weight issues from the shoulder to its arms :P

You can pose all kits so that the balance issue is canceled out.

you can but its hard with asymetrical like the OOQ. if you have weight issues with the back you can just tilt it forwards but if its leaning to the side the pose just gets really awkward :P

also, im pretty sure that it will be tough just to get it to hold that sword! but we will have to wait and see until the reviews come in...

If you have the 00R then the 7 sword is on the same inner frame, Look at some reviews on the OOR and it will tell all that you need to know.

The only way you will fix that Balance issue is something on the opposite shoulder. That is why Full saber should of came out with the 00Q cause it will match the wieght on the opposite side.. You have the MG 00Q go build it and tell us if it doesnt slope down on the other side. It only does this cause the torso has a double joint in it..

the frame is freaking awesome though :P definitely one of the best frames i have built so far! its very flexible but the joints are tight enough^^

and yeah, @xxnike629xx, should actually build the OOQ before telling us that the issues can just be fixed with the base XD i mean, i did build it. i do have experience with this kit and it does lean to its left side no matter what you do because of that double jointed torso.
the OO seven sword version will definitely have the same problem. and i see severe posing problems with that big sword.
there have been kits with smaller weapons and they still werent able to hold them... with the OOQ they at least gave us a 1/144 scale action base to prop up the GN sword III with all the bits attatched...

I built it myself and get the same problem like everyone else.. Glue the double joint would be the simple solution until they give us that MG Full saber. I was just thinking of ordering and building the 7 sword for the sword to put on the 00Q and mount it on the other shoulder.. but it will be a waste of a MS cause i don't really like the 00R design.

i wont glue it or mod it at all. i do have it in a rather stable pose right now, i dont want to sacrifice the flexibility of the model just because of this one issue :B
