I'm not gonna bitch you and say choose MG 00 since it's not on the list. So my recommendation among the three is MG Exia Gundam. You can either get the normal version or the ignition mode. Though IM is much more expensive, having one, I think, is worth it.

I don't like 00 gundam with raiser, i do like MG seven swords 00, but as i wanted 2 cheaper 1/100's instead of 1 expensive MG one i'll choose from those.

This reasoning is also given in by shipping, a small pack can either hold 1 big MG or 2 normal 1/100 or smaller MG's.

maknaedik 2011-10-06 01:51

I see, so regular Exia it is! Oh wait, as far as I can remember. Qan[t]'s box is the same size of Exia's :)

I have both the MG Exia(Ignition mode) and the MG GN-X, and I loved both models. If your really going for the Exia, I highly recommend you get the Ignition mode. Those chrome parts are going to be worth it. Just a heads up, your gonna need an Action base for either master grade as they both have weak ankles.

Anyway, my final exams are over and I have a month's worth of vacation! To celebrate and reward myself, I just ordered the MG Destiny Gundam Extreme Blast Mode with a few Gundam markers.

Qan is just a little bit to weird for me.

I thought about the special version of exia, but besides if you want to build the damaged version of exia i don't really see how the silver edges can justify the price.
It does have that light, but does anybody actually display a model with lights constantly? I got headlights in my PG strike and MK II and i never switch them on.

I could also get a few 1/100 seed models or older Mg's instead :)

maknaedik 2011-10-06 03:43

You're not alone. I find it weird too. Though I have one myself, but in HG form :)

Well, that's the most common issue about it. The bling bling effect can be done using chrome paints out there. Most people just buy it, usually, because of the repair MK-I and the chrome is just a bonus. That's why for some, it's not worthy of having one.

Well, for Seed, my favorite No Grade 1/100 is Nebular Blitz. Has parts for ordinary Blitz, wings of Gold Frame Amatu Mina Custom, has a stand for its grappling whatever, lots of weapons and it's red. Though I'm saying all of these, I haven't built it yet. That's why I can't say anything about its articulation. But I suppose it's the same as other Seed NG 1/100 kits.

Regarding the Nebula Blitz's articulation: It's almost the same as the original, but the knees are now double-jointet, so you get almost a 180 bend out of it.

WOW! That's good to hear :)) I've always thought that its articulation has no improvement since it came with Blitz. Thank you for the info

get the MG GN-X, a special and beautiful MG kit :) not too complicated but it looks beautiful and badass with just some panel lining :)

only downside is the previously mentioned weak ankle joint, and that the shield tends to pop off if you move it (the arm-shield connector is a bit weak).

it grips it's GN beam rifle perfectly (well, its attached to the arm)

great and easy to pose, you can pose it without a stand but i'd recoomend using the beam rifle as a counterweight and have it touch the ground so it wont tilt over, like a crutch(spelling? english isnt my first language)

Well, I think he won't spare a page. A wishful thinking that if he does that, Bandai will hear his prayer :P
now that would be something wouldn't it? lol

I also forgot to mention that the large binders also tend to fall off but not too often on mine.

MG exia gundam
1/100 Dynames gundam
MG GN-X

I would just start getting the main lead suits from the 00 series..

NG 1/100 Astraea
MG Exia
MG Exia Ignition Mode
MG 00 Raiser
MG 00 Raiser 7 Sword G
MG 00 Qan[T]

* The reason why I said Exia and Exia Ignition Mode is because the Ignition Mode as chromed up parts and parts for the Exia Repair. So what I would do is use the regular MG Exia and use the the parts from the Ignition Mode and make it the Repair 1 version. Then, you just build the regular MG Exia from the Ignition Mode pieces (with the chrome parts).

If we got an Exia Repair 2, Astraea, 00 Qan[T] Full Saber, and Exia Avalanche Dash... That would complete the MG line up... =) The ones I put in bold should be done and would cost Bandai very little...

1. Exia Repair 2
- take original MG Exia
- take GN Sword 2 parts from MG 00 Raiser
- mold new armor pieces

2. Astraea
- take 1/100 No Grade
- provide inner frame
- tweak some parts here and there

3. 00 Qan[T] Full Saber
- take MG 00 Qan[T]
- add a plate or 2 for the GN Sword IV pieces

I allready have a build 1/100 Astraea :) and a 1/100 Astraea F still waiting in the closet.

I don't care about owning every variant of the RWB 00 suit, especially since only the origional exia and the 7/8 swords 00 are cool, the rest are useless spotfillers in the MG lineup .There are way more important 00 suits who need MG like patrick's Enact and the Tieren Smirnov version :naughty: :naughty:

Now did i mention yet we desperately need a MG Gaia gundam ???:D

To end this discussion i just ordered 1/100 Dynames and MG GN-X, Exia will have to wait.

Are there any pictures yet of the revamped 1/144 HG seed models?

how abt MG Saviour with a better wing binder than the 1/100?

another issue for MG Exia is the GN Drive. is very loose

Is it that loose? I have one, though there's this feeling that it's not secure, it's still is. Not really that worse.

MG Reborns so that 00 Raiser won't be alone anymore. (Oh, now I sound repetitive myself)

If they'll make an MG Gaia, then I'd love to see its orange colored version as well :)

GN-X's good in my opinion. Though it's sad that they didn't milk it out.

I couldn't agree more, with the both of you.

Mg saviour definitley before a gaia and i believe a blast impulse before them at least.

a MG Saviour would be nice, but the 1/100 NG is very good aswell, except for the wings as someone mentioned above

a MG Blast Impulse would be a wet dream though, i love that design

maknaedik 2011-10-06 09:14

I actually want the Advanced GN-X, the red one.

Having no MG Blast Impulse only mean it's not popular enough :(

I've been thinking of converting a 1/100 Saviour to MG, but it would be difficult I think, that's why I chose MG Justice instead.

@StrikeFreedomV2:

How is the Geara(Guards Type) like, I really like the look of that model and think I'll get it.
But always nice to hear some opinions.

Ahh so many models to get and so little money to buy em with:(

I'm guessing the GN-X was made because of its potential to sell those variants. Either they're taking it slowly or the sales of the GN-X told them that it wont be viable to create the other GN-Xs.

I'm hoping for a MG Reborns too! All the Exia and 00 can't just fight GN-Xs. :)

I think it's the latter :( I actually want it to be my next project. MG Advanced GN-X conversion. It only requires some minor, I think, modifications then a repaint.

i agree. the GN-X isnt a great model as far as i have heard and it probably didnt sell too well because of that... so if they use it as a base for variations those kits will suck as well and no one would ever buy them :P

Indeed.. considering they have the other two out for the MG. I don't know why Bandai didn't give us the optional parts and colour scheme to make it Sword or Blast. But maybe in the future they will give us a MG of it.

Oh, yeah, I've thinking about this for a long time: how can GN-X made it to MG but Reborns, Gadessa, Gaddes, & Garazzo didn't even made into 1/100? Are they really less popular than GN-X?

well, i cant buy everything^^ im not rockefeller :P
my money is just as limited as yours, i just try to plan ahead and put some money aside for models.
there are also times when i dont buy any kits at all. for examlpe from now until december i probably wont by anything. the older kits that i want are out of stock everywhere and im not at all interested in the new ones that come out, except for the MG FA unicorn and the kotobukiya jehuty.

Itīs overall a great looking kit with alot of stuff in terms of weapons. It has an axe, a great looking beam rifle, grenades, a Panzerfaust (i think thatīs what itīs called) and a shield. Itīs like a cross between the original Geara Zulu and Angeloīs Custom version. Poseability is pretty good, even though it canīt do the splits and has a 90 degree bend in both arms and legs. But it doesnīt really need it, I think. Only downside are the stickers, particullary the white ones with the black dots. They go on the forearms, the ammo clips and shoulders plus some go on the vents on the side of the ankles and can look a little weird if put on correctly. But if you paint it, that becomes irrelevant.



Overall, I really recommend it, itīs a fun build and really worth the money^^

Here are a few pics. Quality is kinda bad, the pics are made with my cellphone and the lighting in my place is not really good:heh:

Thats good to hear, I'm not too fussed about having great articulation, as long as it's decent thats good enough for me, won't really be playing around with them anyway.

Still not sure if I'll be painting anything atm, only just recently got back into gundpla(last time I built one of these was way back in 1997 or so)

Also another question, anyone know of any decent weapon stuff, apart from the stuff on HLJ which isn't a great selection, I would like to have options without having to just buy more models.

there are a few options but they are usually for specific kits (like the lohengrin launcher for the MG astray blue frame or the shot lancer for the crossbone X2).
you can take a look here for example: http://tatsuhobby.com/webstore/index...=index&cPath=3
the selection isnt great though, too.

in december bandai will release a set of 1/144 scale weapons. in this set you get one rifle and one gatling gun that you can add many pieces to. like different magazines or stands:
http://www.gunjap.net/site/?p=31181

there are also weapons for the frame arms models from kotobukiya available.
http://www.hlj.com/scripts/hljlist?SeriesID=1841&Dis=2
but i have no clue in what scale they are and whether a gundam could use them or not!

edit: according to this video the kotobukiya gatling has a good size for MGs. and it sure looks like it does! that thing seems pretty awesome^^

Can't believe i didn't know the Gafran transforms, i think it looks better in its other mode, debating picking it up. Have decide not to get the FA unicorn. I just don't like the design for some reason, maybe its too bulky or blocky.

MoonLightShadows 2011-10-06 19:16

Age 1 Gundam, O Gundam. If i had a HG RX-78 I would of added that too. I cant wait to see the MG Age 1 now. After how good the HG is.


beamknight87 2011-10-06 23:19

Some pics of this kit.

Spoiler for Pics:


Basically an out of the box build, adding some weathering to make it look "worn out" along a little paint here and there for detailing. It's a nice model but plenty of parts fall off all the time, which is annoying. Anyways, this isn't finished just yet, as I gave this kit the weapons from the 1/144 Engage Octaver SR-1 kit from Five Star Stories (a sword and a shield in which I attempted to do battle damage for the first time), I just need to get a fabric in order to make a cloak a la Crossbone Gundam for this fella, so yeah, I'm ditching the weapons and even the Aile Striker for this little project but who cares, the Strike by itself is cool enough.
