It's new equipment. The 2nd GN Arms was shown in the preview for episode 23, while the Nadleeh with Shield and Beam rifle was shown a while back in leaked art for the HG 1/144 Gundam Nadleeh (yes, the HG will have that extra equipment unlike the 1/100 version).

These mods are nice =) I've been thinking really ahrd on how to get the back of exia to glow in a manner similar to the show as well ^^; Maybe next you can do the trans-am mode? :D

Personally, I think the concept of the GN ARMS, a giant exterior armored suit to which a gundam attaches itself, is even more ridiculous than the idea of mobile suits to begin with. I mean, why not just make a separate flying machine that has all those weapons? It's not as if the gundam is powering it.
remember meteor? G-defensor? G-falcon? a big flying unit attaching to the gundam is kinda like a tradition now, along with having emotionally unstable characters riding gundams ^^;

In terms on how realistic it is, in Seed it kinda makes sense, since gundams are the most mobile unit in the universe, give it a space use-only suit with extra thrusters as to not compromise too much in speed + some crazy missiles and lazors, and kill as many as possible (something that's impossible to do with the old freedom + justice) before ditching it and using the more manouverable core suit. Why not just create the unit in itself? I think it needs the power from the nucear reactors, similar to the GN-arms now

In Zeta it kinda makes sense as well, turns the Mk-II into a totally different use suit. Rather than using it for assault it's used for backup with big guns like Virtue. They never really explained where the power comes from but the thing does run out of juice quite quick so Ii'm guessing it comes from both units ^^; Dunno bout G-Falcon. Anyone cares to shed a light?

So it will depend on how sunrise choose to handle GN arms, it may seem realistic / not later in the show ^^;

If the boxart is any indication its two GN Arms and not simply different equipment. Though we'll find that out conclusively tomorrow.

If it is two GN Arms, maybe we can expect a "Type-D" HG GN Arms with Gundam Dynames in the future...

Seven hours and this is what I get.

On one hand it looks like a Metal Gear and I tempted to repaint it in Jungle Camouflage Colours.

On the other, you can actually see a face which reminds me of No.5 from the movie Short Circuit.

If anything, this reminds me of Valkyries in their gerwalk mode....

Now that you mention it it does look like a VF-19 with Sound Booster opened. Maybe I should colour it red.

And BTW, this is an OOB built. As standard with Bandai, the bigger they comes, the less you need to paint.

I'll listen to you if you sing LOL

The OOB built looks pretty decent. Please post the pics once you have Exia C.A. completed :D

I heeded your warning, but got confused whether it's the 1/550 or the 1/400 that is molded in white... :heh: But nevertheless, I'm enjoying the kit; though that one piece in front of its I-field Generator is a pain to paint... :heh:

There was a discussion about this a while ago. It would seem that the Ptoleimos, if you look at it closely, carries four individual GN-Arms. Most likey, each Gundam has its own GN-Arms with a unique configuration for each suit. And so far in the show, it seems that only two are operational.

If the E in Type-E stands for Exia, then wouldn't the rest of the GN-Arms be Type-D for Dynames, Type-K for Kyrios, and Type-N for Nadleeh...? :heh:

As for the price, If I'm not mistaken, its about 5,2XX yen; around $50-60 bucks.

That would be quite an upgrade for the Ptoly, 8 GN-Cannons on the go! :)

You know what I did with that? I just took a Marker with the thinnest diameter and wasted several grams of liquid on it :heh: Huge waste of resources, but I wanted little headache as possible (try reaching the deepest crevices, cracks and trenches on the parts and you'll know what I mean) :heh:

By the way, are you in the Phillipines? I think someone on this thread is/been to the Phillipines. I am having a fit finding Gundam00 model kits in my proximity (best I can find is a FG 1/144 Virtue at the Toy Kingdom at SM Megamall which I bought without hesitation :uhoh::heh: )

I might post pictures of the hilarious ensuing life of my FG Virtue, but on dial-up I'm having enough nightmares from this thread's xbox hueg images :heh:

Makube, is this kit worth getting?
Since you already own one and have already started building it, how is it? Good? Dame? lol

LOL! I guess it's worth it. :heh: As for me, I'm gonna go ahead and paint it using a very fine brush. XD By the way, did you paint those little small figures that came with the kit?

No, I live in the US now. I did visit the country a couple of years ago, however. I bought a few HGUCs and a couple of MGs from an SM megamall in Pampanga. Where exactly are you in the Philippines? And are you a Filipino, by any chance?
