From my collection:
00 Gundam and 00 Raiser (2 GN Sword II)
GN-X III (Regular Rifle and GN Lance)
Seravee (Not really rifles, but bazookas)
Cherudim and Dynames got each 2 two Beam Pistols (GNHW Cherudim has 4)
Zabanya and Harute each got 2 rifles.

There could be some more, though :heh:

Well not sure I can say I'm surprise considering your love for the 00 but while I can understand may like other series over, it's hard for me to see some not liking UC models. I think they are some of the best looking around.
I mean the Sinanju is one of the most if not the best looking gundam to grace us(but thats just my very biased opinion:p)

Which reminds me I gotta save for Hi-Nu, thats one sexy piece of kit:D

the white paper is for colored decals since most printers at home cant print with white ink (the white will just be the white of the paper). the problem with those is that you have to cut out your decals absolutely perfectly because otherwise you have white edges.
the clear decal paper is for black or very dark decals or for white decals on a white surface.

you can then just design your decals on the PC, print them out and fix them with something like the mr. hobby metal primer that i ordered.

for now i only ordered one sheet to test the whole thing. even if it fails it wont really matter since the FA unicorn will be released in about 2 months^^
the guys at HLJ just messed up my order... i ordered the action base together with the FA unicorn but for some reason they decided to ship the base already >__> so i figured i might as well get the decals for it now and have it ready when the unicorn arrives :P

Yeah, sometimes they don't exactly make sense in that respect. I ordered 2 MGs and two bases, and while they were all supposed to be shipped together, only one of the MGs has arrived so far. Granted, it only took 2 weeks or so, but still, couldn't it have been 1 big package?

Gotta admit, UC MGs are awesome. Delta Plus and Sinanju both look stunning, some day I will go for them. Somehow they're different in style from all the other universes' Mobile suits.

+1 for the Hi-Nu.

I only wish that there's a MG Hi-Nu with Nu's color scheme (orange/black), similar to the HG Hi-Nu GPB.

IMO, the sexiest designs are from Advance of Zeta. But Bandai released only a few kits, like Hrairoo and Hazel. Hrairoo in particular is fantastic.

So we have the runners for the upcoming Sandrock EW
Seeing how the elements that aren't present in the Kai-OVA version are being disposed,I smell a EW Sandrock Custom. :3

wow, thanks! i was meaning more of those full-sized beam rifles of different designs in a single kit. thinking of making a custom and stealing a rifle from another suit. lol :)

i kinda like sergei's beam rifle.. feels like a shortened GN-x's

Like that wasn't obvious enough. Bandai is proactively designing the MG EW kit runners so they can cut off the parts required for future Endless Waltz variants. I think we'll see the rest of our Endless Waltz upgrades (Nataku, Heavyarms Custom and Sandrock Custom) after the MG Heavyarms EW is released.

yes, i think so, too. they can make a TON of money with these models! they are essentially releasing each model twice with slight variations. and i think thats a very smart move^^ purists will buy all of them and people like me will stick to the kai versions but all in all they are still making a huge profit!

im also now printing my first set of decals^^ i will post a photo once they are on the action base (given that everything works out in the end...)

edit: thank god, they turned out fine XD that would have been 3 bucks wasted otherwise :P

Appel 2011-10-20 15:19

and here we are! im actually very pleased how this turned out:

The MG Sandrock also be converted into Sandrock Kai, if you convert it with the color scheme respectively. And yeah, I wanna see the Heavyarms Kai's Double Gatling Gun and Altron's Dragon's Fang if Bandai really released the MG version of them.

If they are given a chance like that, how about Tallgeese III? That's one of my favorite non-Gundam Mobile Suit.

Or what about a Wing Zero Custom ver. 2.0?

Great Job Appel, I'm surprised that the printer didn't leave chip marks through out the image. what printer did you use?

I had this kit before, as you can see on the other photos, the straight build was...atrocious. Like what Gundam Guy had said, this kit (and the Vayeate) needs an modern HG.

http://www.gundamer.com/01/g20_11_10_12_deltaplus.html

Interview with Model developer Hirofumi Kishiyama of Bandai.

Some important points :-

1. Plans are already in place for a MG Delta Gundam and Hyashiki 2.0. But it will not be undertaken for another 1 to 2 years.

2. The futures of Gunpla had to go towards releasing MGs as HGs are unable to potray details shown in MGs.

3. There's are to be more Unicorn MG releases.

Point 1:
They should've made Hyashiki 2.0 LONG ago when they release Zeta BD along with Zeta & Mk. II ver. 2.0 MGs. What were they thinking?

Point 2:
So, they decide to given up on HGs? That's pretty surprising considering that they seem to be just started to make some HGs from AGE & G Gundam series line.

Point 3: Yeah, it's obvious.

1. Somebody is still interested in these relics??? Delta i can understand, but hyaku...

2. I agree that MG's are better the HG, but not everybody likes the high prices they come with. HG will most likely be superseeded by RG, natural evolution. BUt that does not render HG useless. Is he talking about 1/144 or 1/100 here? 1/100 they can replace all by MG's as the quality of current 1/100 goes more towards MG afterall with each generation. 1/144 HG will still exist in like 10 years, but only for the new "hot" main line, HGUC might dissapear in favor of RG and more MG's. They should also do away with 1/144 NG, don't know anybody who buys that except for option parts that should have ben included with the HG version from the start (example strike)

3. Not another version of unicorn gundam i hope...I want something new now...

Personaly i'd love the thought they go with more MG's, but please consider also releasing MG's in a more affordable price point the the 4000-6000 yen now. Simpeler models and mass production suits please that fit the 3000-4000 yen price point like GN-X or zaku 2.0 for example.

Relic?! Even though its old, it's a classic design and still influences newer designs. like Delta Plus. Also, look at the Zaku's and the RX-78-2. These are OLDER than the HS, but People still buy them.

I'm thinking they meant the 1/100 HG line (even though they're not explicitly called "HG" in the boxes), unless I'm mistaken. Considering that they already started cutting down on the line as early as Gundam 00 S2, I think the 1/100's being referred to is likely. It's not surprising though considering that the 1/100's for 00 have almost reached MG levels in terms of detail quality, which does raise the question of "what's the point" if the MG version is just plain better.

If they are talking about the 1/144's, I don't understand the decision, since they're different sizes for different folks. The RG is there for people who want MG-esque detail, while the HG is the cheaper all-around option. Their stated reason for doing the HGUC line in the first place is to be able to release kit designs that would otherwise be economically unwise to do in MG.

Hyaku 2.0 is to pleased the current uc fanbase
