Thanks for the answers guys, one more question: can i change the Overflag form (aircraft to robot, robot to aircraft) without much hassle ?

I will definetly get an action base to keep it on aircraft mode.

Is the Z plus 01 a good model? And the Unicorn?
And going a little off topic how are the old patlabor models (especially the Griffon)?
All being MG.

It's for this Christmas

Not much better on other areas, since I'm seeing cheaper prices for MG kits like Freedom and Sword/Launcher Strike than what's on sites like HLJ. :eyespin:

On the other hand, the HGUC series are well stocked except for the Hirairoo. Darn thing seems to be extinct in local stores. :(

I'd go for a 1/100 Gold Frame Amatu. It's too cool :D

For upcoming Christmas I don't expect to get any Gundams. Shame really :(

How are the no grade 1/100 Kyrios and Dynames kits, for those who have them?

I thinking of getting either one of them if they are good, but the question is which one has more value? I heard Kyrios has good pose-ability, but Dynames has more "stuff"...

The only complaint I have towards the Unicorn is that it's kinda fragile when you transform it.

I have a 1/100 Dynames and its opseability is decent. Looks cool with its shield wings spread and the two guns held in both hands.

Here are some pics:

the 1/100 Dynames looks far better then i thought it would, HG kits truly are getting close to MG detail.


P.S. I do really like the design of Seravee, its just the gundam head backpack just seems strange to me. Bulky gundams are awesome by the way.

Like said, the hands keep popping off and just be careful of the stomach joint during the transformation.

You should get kyrios and dynames its worth it

vektar 2008-12-17 23:25

There's no parts-swapping for one, so that's a bonus. There's a couple of points to watch out for though:

1. The arms pop out quite often. Better to take them out, then put them back in when transforming.

2. Always make sure that you properly raise the entire head - including the underlying neck assembly - before you transform the torso if you're transforming from flight mode to MS. The neck assembly is the lock that keeps the torso secure in flight mode, hence if your torso assembly doesn't budge for some reason, that's probably the cause.

Now to wait for the scans of the HG Arios to be released today...

Hey, im debating currently weither to get a HGUC Nu gundam or a MG Nu gundam. Which one do you guys think is the better kit and for a Nu Gundam fan? I heard the MG nu gundam was huge and the HGUC is almost the size of an average 1/100 gundam. Anyone have any personal experiences with these kits? pros cons?

Knight_SV 2008-12-18 02:15

GN Beam Shield? That's interesting

But most importantly....CLEAR BEAM SABER PARTS!!!

Kelrys 2008-12-18 02:40

Regarding the HG 1/144 line, the January release is Gadessa right? What comes after that?

GN-XIII Feddie colors, if I'm not mistaken.

To be honest, Federation-colors GN-XIII feels like a real cop-out when it comes to models. But Bandai's a model-whore and they have god knows how many different kinds of Zaku-IIs out there, so its not nearly as bad as that...

SWEET, thanks :D

I'll leave the juicy translations to you as always :D Also, nice to see they did include the SEED stand as well.

Kelrys 2008-12-18 03:00

Feddie GNXIII means another repaint of the GNX model. Wow, BANDAI is sucking up our pockets.
