If you haven't, get watching! I (and most of the people posting in this thread) highly recommends it.

This 0 Gundam thing is a Gundam that resembles the RX-78, which is a Gundam in the first Gundam series ever. Link to picture: http://www.mahq.net/Mecha/gundam/msgundam/rx-78-2.htm

Spent the evening fixing up the Eins straight out of box. Was a fun build for the hour or 2. One of the better kit so far in the HG 00 line so far along with the Custom Flag.

Finished up MG hi-nu last night (well almost, I still have to do the decals).

The Throne Eins looks pretty bad-ass there.
But I think I'll wait until a 1/100 is released (that is, if it looks good to be which it probably will).

I went to my local hobby shop and they were having a sale. I got my self a MG RX-78-2 20th Anniversary ver. for 20 bucks. Pretty good deal i would think XD. This guy is my first MG, so if things goes well with him then I might start buying MGs from now on. =P

2) The GM sniper rifle feels rather flimsy . Even when you insert a joint on of the sniper rifle into Dyname's arm . As show in http://www.dalong.net/review/00/0102/p/0102_31.jpg
It still feels rather loose .

EDIT : OOps , forgot to stick the red v-fin stickers -.-

Can HG 1/100 Dynames hold it's GN beam pistol?O_O

if i remember right, the 20th anniversary edition has a different color paint. I love that version, it is a really solid kit and you don't need do any painting and it looks amazing.

PS: seeing everyone getting their throne is killing me, hahahaha... come on HLJ!!

How much does shipping usually cost for one 1/144 model from HLJ? Is it different for each state?

Also, is $34 too much for both the HG 1/144 Exia and Dynames? It's been a while since I've bought models, and I've never done importing before, either.

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

Wow beamknight. I dunno which store you're referring to let alone where you live but for some reason because of your post I was motivated to go to a local hobby store that I haven't visited before and Voila! 50% discount on TurnA and Destiny MG XD got both for 56$. Are you in Vancouver, Canada by any chance?

You mean both of them for 34$ and not each right? Is this shipping / tax included? 34 CAD$ (which is more or less equal to US now) for those two is kinda the normal price for my area. HLJ is a good reference for the barcode prices. Exia and Dynames totals 2400Y and after shipping + tax it comes to around 34$ if I import them from HLJ.

philmein 2008-02-16 23:03

I seriously envy you guys with local stores that have discounted models. Mine is overpriced and never has discounts. Shucks!

Yeah, $34 for both including the shipping. I don't believe there is tax, because it's an eBay thing.

Yeah, I only have a small Hobby shop where I live, and they also have overpriced Gundams. The good thing is that they mark off the Gundams, that don't sell, by 50%, and since nobody seems to care about Gundams where I live, I get lucky sometimes. Unfortunately, it takes forever until they mark down things, so I'm trying to get Gundams online now.

I only start buying stuff from HLJ since 00

but compare to my local anime store it is actually 2-5 CND dollars cheaper.

shipping should cost almost as much as the model, depend on the size of the box.

Dynames + kyrios are 2700 Yen, HLJ charged me 2020 Yen for shipping. I think it's pretty reasonable.
The packaging is also very good. Thick cardboard box with nice plastic air bubble

PS: 2020 is EMS shipping, with tracking number and website, I know exactly where the package is any time. At the tracking site it shows when it leaves Japan, enter canadian custom, when get into my city... And they have SAL (cheaper) but no tracking number, and it's based on priority. so sometimes you will be waiting for a kit for weeks.

Are you refering to a store called Gundam Work Shop? Lol, that is also the place I got mine discounted RX-78-2 anniversary ver. for 50% off. And I believe beamknight also shop at that store, as I've seen his username before on the store's forum..lol

VistaZ 2008-02-17 04:28

FG O Gundam pics

The Gundam 00 official site put up some pics of the FG 0 Gundam in its Products section. On Bandai Hobby's 00 Gunpla site, the extra something randomly chosen people will receive during the 0 Gundam Get Campaign (mentioned previously) will be revealed in a "big announcement" on March 7.

Quality of joints and material?
