We'll probably see an MG treatment within a year or two. If I can recall correctly, when SEED began airing on 2002, we saw an MG Strike immediately a year after(2003). And in 2005, when SEED Destiny debuted, an MG Strike Freedom came rolling in 2006. So we might see an MG Exia next year(or earlier, if we're lucky).

Mister Mister 2008-02-13 11:15

yeah, but it took almost a decade to get a MG Turn A. I suppose this comes down to whether 00 gets translated and popular in the US.

Destiny started in 2004, not 2005. So MG Strike came right after SEED finished airing, and MG Strike Freedom was released just over a year after Destiny finished airing.

I don't think Gundam's popularity in the US has anything to do with it. Gundam is dead in the US, and has been for awhile.

Top Coat Spray
 
Does anyone here know where someone living in the Uk can get the Top Coat spray. I'v searched Google but haven't found anything. Thanks.

Astrana 2008-02-13 17:35

Would anyone like to concur that the Thrones Ein is one badass?!
I'd like to wait for a 1/100 of it....

OMG!
I'm really reconsidering whether I should start buying 1/44 HGs now after seeing the Zwei...

Can someone tell me the difference between HG and a 1/100 Non-grade? Is a 1/44 HG more detailed than a 1/00 non-grade? A little curious. Thanks.

beamknight87 2008-02-14 19:19

hey that sword looks pretty badass.... but bet it requires a lot of painting to make it look it like that jojo >_<

Astrana 2008-02-14 20:49

Zwei looks better than Eins imo, well, i am getting all 3 anyway hehehe...
isnt Zwei coming out in march?? How come it says April- MAy?

Wait for the inevitable 3-in-1 Bundle.

Look closer, one is the HG 1/144 Model Kit. The other is an MSiA line Action Figure.

LightningZERO 2008-02-14 22:37

It seems that it has no Fang parts...

At least the under-the-skirt shot of the Zwei confirms that it can be connected to the Enis. Notice the small wire with the connector in that photo.

And the Enis shot below :-

Is it just me or does the head/chest seem off proportion?

So sue me when I have made some minor typos here and there like all every netizens.

Anyway back on topic :-

1/144 HGUC RX-93

philmein 2008-02-15 04:26

Hey Sciel,
Just another question in regards to Exia..
Are there any loose parts besides the swords you mentioned? Are the leg joints loose? Anything that I should know of?

Sciel 2008-02-15 04:52

The leg hip joints are slightly loose but it doesn't really seem to hinder poseability . The only other problem i can think off is the optional hip parts that hold the GN Long and short blades .

Pic of it : http://www.dalong.net/review/00/0101/th/s_0101_36.jpg

Its actually a bit on the loose side and falls off sometimes . Also with these parts sometimes get in the way of posing and will clip the back of exia's "skirt" when you try to position the legs .

Thanks for the response man. I can deal with those flaws. Doesn't concern me. As long as the joints aren't totally loose to the point where posing is one big issue. I've already ordered it and I have no regrets whatsoever.

My god...is there ever not something wrong with a model kit to you?

I don't see whats wrong with the HGUC Nu. Looks pretty good to me.

justsomeguy 2008-02-15 12:37

The only issue I see is that the elbows are not double-jointed.

Meehlimo 2008-02-15 15:14

Looks good to me my only concern is will it stand ok n support the fin funnels on its back properly.

You can always put it on a stand or Action Base if it can't, although from the images I'm sure it can.

FG O Gundam

philmein 2008-02-15 19:21

Iono about you guys, but the O Gundam looks like the RX-78 Gundam....then again, I could be just purely blind.

Where the hell have you been? We've known that since the 1st episode.

Mister Mister 2008-02-15 20:10

I just got my first model kit. yay!

I decided on ordering the RX-78-2 OYW version. no core fighter, but I'm just starting out and it would have just made it more complicated, so I don't mind. I haven't inked it yet, but I put it all together anyway. as far as poseability goes, it's fantastic, and the colors are pretty shot on out of the box. the only problem I've had is that the arms seem to get loose rather quickly if you move them around, but that's probably because of something I screwed up without noticing while I was putting the armor on.

beamknight87 2008-02-15 21:08

The store had a surprising 50% off in a lot of models, so I opted to get some decals, aluminum thrusters and my very first grunt mobile suit: a MG Zaku II 2.0 (green version) for measly 20 bucks ^^.
Think that along with the MG IWSP I will use this Zaku to begin to experiment the battle damage treatment, want to give them a more "veteran" look since the rest of my models have a "dodge everything-no scratches" look lol

Mister Mister 2008-02-15 21:21

calm down, children. We're here to talk about model kits, not flip out and go at eachother's throats.

50% off!? Holy mother of Acguy... Oh, and you won't regret that Zaku II ver 2.0. I own one myself, and it's absolutely fantastic!

From what I remember, in order to get the FG O Gundam, you need to send in the proof of purchases of the 4 FG Grade 00 Gundam kits.

philmein 2008-02-16 02:16

Let's just hope that the MG versions of the 00 Gundams are made. For sure Exia, but the rest, I'll just stand by the sidelines and witness the soon-to-come events.
