i had a look at the PG section of the Hobby Search website and there has only been one PG over 20k Yen and that is Pearl coating Wing Gundam, even the strike Rouge + Skygrasper was only 19000Yen... if i actually buy this which will be most likely over $320AUD (inc shipping), i probably have to give up uni and take up 5 different jobs jus to pay it off lol

Yeah but I spoilt my normal Arios recently quite badly and while the GNHW is great on its own,I like to know that I can make it into a normal Arios again.

If I cant make it into a normal Arios with the GNHW kit,I may be thinking of buying another normal Arios in the future.If I can,I'm better of buying another GNHW kit then.Considering I'm going to have 2 versions of Cherudim and Seravee,it just feels weird not to have two versions of Arios as well.

i have a question to all of you who do linework details on their models. ive decided to try line work on my 144 andy custom gaia. i got a set of fine bruushes to use but often it goes on a bit too much. now im cutting down on the quanitity of paint on thr brush. since this is the first time im trying it i find that in times i put on too much i can rub of the extra and clean it away leaving some in the lines themselves. this works decently but are there any other small tricks? whenever my chance to buy the gadess comes along i plan to do the linework.

If by linework you mean panel lining, you may want to try using pens for a start. Look for pens with tips of size 01 or 005. Otherwise the methods of panel lining are a search away.

Just asembled my Cherudim with new weapons and the Gaddess

Er, What stand? it's just a DETOLF shelf :heh: As for the black stands for each GNZ, it just came with the kit :)

Anyone here bought the Reborns Gundam/Cannon kit yet?

I'm planning to get one from Gundam Fiesta(Singapore) later today.

If I do, i'll make sure I'll post some reviews up if no one else has done so.

I don't think it's out yet....right?:confused:

GNZ squad... *drools*

Amber.Dawn 2009-09-04 18:48

Gotta love the Detolf display case.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-09-04 19:08

Jesus....is an Ahead really THAT much bigger than a Flag?

MG Exia and Ignition Mode?
 
Hey, What the difference between the MG Exias? Does the regular MG Exia come with the LED lights but just without Broken Exia parts?

It's supposed to be yes. The Ahead's official stats puts it at about 20.6 meters in height, while the Flag is only 17.9. And with the Ahead's bulk considered, then yes it should be that much bigger than a Flag.

The regular MG Exia does not come with the LED lights: you'll have to get the Ignition Mode to get them and the Exia Repair parts. The Ignition Mode MG Exia also comes with chrome-plated blades for the GN Sword and GN Blades.

...and yet, though larger, the Ahead will never match the "coolness factor" of the Flag.

Would this be the first time a Gundam series had the mobile suits become bigger, rather than smaller?

*points to Gundam F91 and V Gundam*


And CelestialNocturne, I didn't know the Flag was cool at all.:p

They got bigger before they got smaller in UC. The Nu Gundam was somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 meters in height...

It's out next Thursday, on the 10th. And that's in Japan. It may not reach Singapore that quickly, unless it's the same case as 0 Gundam and Exia R2...

I'm gonna get mine from the Gundam Fiesta too, though.

i got the same shelf as u lol, its quite cheap coming from IKEA, but the build quality is quite average, as it wobbles if theres a moderate force applied to it or if ur moving it... running out of room on mine though lol

Reborns will be out on the 10th on Jpn...so nxt weekend then have

atlans89 2009-09-04 23:44

If I recall, Bandai announce there will be 2 MG from UC franchise released during September 2009 to February 2010, so MG Guntank is one of those 2?
After Exia got MG treatment, I'm kinda looking forward for another MG treatment from 00 (somehow excluding Astraea as it's only a matter of time :)))

Next weekend? 12/13th? Let's hope its like R2 and 0 Gundam then, come early ^^ Can't wait for it.

On the other hand, how do you paint the beam sabers for 00 kits Orange in colour? Like those for the Aheads.

orange paint?:confused:

Tormenk 2009-09-05 01:27

I'll add in orange markers like sharpie or even highlighters for alternatives.

Hmm. Highlighters seem to rub of easily though.

for my bushido ahead I just simply did two coats of Tamiya Acrylic Paint X (Gloss) Color X-26. Clear orange. Paint a coat on. let it dry for an hour. paint another coat on. let it dry for another hour and done.

And I've seen the HGUC Kshatriya in the flesh. It's easily scaled up to most 1/100 kits and definately worth the price tag of 4500 yen.

StratoSpear 2009-09-05 03:21

I just came back form the expo and... OMG

Reborns will be released on the 10th, so I'll be heading to Compass Point again during that day.

And I also managed to get pictures of the VS Astray models, including Regen Duel and the Providence(forgot the name).... And they also had another mobile suit for the series called Astray Mirage if i remember correctly.


I'll post up pictures of them later today. And I agree with MakubeX2, The Kshatriya is f-ing huge!! Quite huge for a High Grade...

thiangtm 2009-09-05 04:13

when is the last day of the gundam fiesta?

The 14th. Lots of time.

duckroll 2009-09-05 11:28

I dropped by at the Fiesta today. The model displays and stuff were nice, and it's great to be able to see the upcoming Astray and Unicorn models in person, especially the HG Kshatriya. Unfortunately I'm pretty disappointed at the prices. The retail part of the Fiesta is sponsored by Metro, so even though the prices are 20% off the retail price, it's still pretty expensive compared to buying stuff from a hobby shop. Oh well.

Tormenk 2009-09-05 12:01

It's nice to see some of the future releases on display. Guntank was awesome and the coming MG Blue Frame featured the most surface details on a MG I have ever seen. Kshatriya gave me deja vu after examining it up close but the price tag is indeed well worth it.

Now I'm hoping there aren't too many stickers on the Reborns, since the chest piece is a clear part over a sticker. =/

It stands fine.

The only Innovator suit that really has trouble for me is the Gadessa, but only when I equip the GN Mega Launcher. The launcher-less Gadessa stands well enough.


Oh, and I really want to see the GRM Gundam and the Gaga in HG someday.

Critias 2009-09-05 15:40

don't know if this has been mentioned yet but:

Dalong has got Gale Strike and Hail Buster info (not the model review yet), but looking at the instructions, it seems as if both can use each others weapons packs. Dunno if any other HG 1/100 packs are usable though. But Gale Strike shows a boxart of the HG 1/100 AIle Strike, and Hail has one of the 1/100 Buster, but I don't know what it could/would mean...

kakakka 2009-09-05 15:43

The Gale Strike really screams "00 Raiser" -like to me.

If its not limited edition (and if I find some extra money in my pocket), I might buy it.

StratoSpear 2009-09-05 18:55

Gale Strike is not limited edition. Get one of you like it...

When I was at the Fiesta, out of every 10 people I see, 6-7 of them are carrying the Gale Strike models in their shopping bags 0_0

Btw, model pictures of the VS Astray mobile suits:





And the new guy, Astray Mirage Frame:



Honestly speaking, I think these guys look waay better in model kit form.

A few more pointers:
- Regen Duel sports a Zeta-ish face
- It also seems to be armed with a cannon identical to the one used by the Astray Gold Frame
- For the Mirage Frame, it was shown somewhere in the Fiesta that it's gonna sport mostly purple colors.. much like one of the custom DSSD Astrays(forgot the guy's name, again)

Critias 2009-09-05 19:40

Nix is hands down the WORST of the lot. I've actually gotten used to Gale Strike now.

Mirage looks OK. And it's gonna be purple? Put all the Astrays together and you've got yourself a regular Power Rangers team :heh:

duotiga 2009-09-05 20:33

is duel's original bazooka not canon...anyway gonna get regen duel....wondering the pack can swap with gold frame? then can pose double bazooka lol

Okamidum 2009-09-05 20:57

I'm turned off at the beam saber gimmic on duel. So far its the best one imo.

/nods vigorously

bio9205 2009-09-05 22:08

Is HG Reborns Gundam cheaper at the Fiesta (39) or at normal hobby shops? I mean, I really want it, but if it's more expensive, then I'd rather wait.

Oh, and the sharpie markers you mentioned - where can I get them? I'm relatively new to gunpla, so please guide me along >_<
