So lately, I've been considering to purchase some HG kits along with Action Base 2 stands.

Where can I get these the cheapest online? I live in the US so choices are eBay (if shipped from US), Amazon, Gundam Guy, etc etc.

1.5 gundam
-- red
reborns gundam
-- red
0 gundam (type acd)
-- green
0 gundam (roll out)
-- green
exia repair 2
-- green

* The color under each kit indicates the Action Base 2 I want for that kit.
* So green is Sparkle Green Action Base 2, and red is Sparkle Red Action Base 2.

I don't live in the US so I can't really say, but the best way to know is just to compare the prices of all the online shops you usually go and buy your kits. That's the best answer I can to you at the moment because that is what I usually do anyway.

I like it too. I will admit it's too bulky looking though. At least with the wings and such on it's shoulders. Even with the defender mode(think that's what it's called), the black cannon parts, it doesn't suit it's bulky normal mode.

I bet it would look awesome with some scratch built parts and weapons.

Edit: I must admit I dislike the whole core fighter/transforming mobile suits in gundam. I like strictly not transforming gundams personally. So that's another thing I dislike about the age 3. Still interesting kit. I wonder what kind of gimmick they could do with a MG.

I want to see if anyone could give me suggestions...

Leaning on going all GG Infinite or looking on Amazon since I have a Prime account that can get me free 2 day delivery on unlimited amount of items.

Butagami 2012-05-11 16:43

whoa, Marasai's got posable fingers? Or "emotion manipulators" as they call it... Awesome, thought Bandai went full hand-swap on all MG's

maybe they finally realized that a combination f swappable fingers and posable figers is best? :P

Maybe for Bandai, the Marasai qualifies as a higher class MG to earn those PG/RG style "emotion manipulators", unlike the 1/100 NG-esque swappable fingers.

It's just the usual sales tactic. The Marasai isn't exactly a popular design when you place it next to the usual Gundams. It's a grunt suit and a antagonist one at that which gets blown up every other episode.

Bandai has to make it sell somehow, so they get all gimmicky and sincere with those hands and one extra LED.

I love it and i'm buying it, i'm a bit sick of another star gundams in always the same boring colors.

Agree with you. That's why I plan to buy MG Deathscythe, Sandrock, Duel, Blitz, Aegis, and Buster since they don't have that normal Gundam colors. Still, three of those aren't released yet. :heh:

00 Gundam MGs must be very popular then, to merit both posable manipulators and the static swappable hands.

you lucky bastard XD. Are you going to buy an additional suitcase to solve your space issue? Post some pics of your finished works. Especially of the Zeta 2.0, that thing's just beautiful.

maknaedik 2012-05-12 07:22

I was about to buy a 1/48 Sinanju Head Display, but suddenly realized that I haven't brought enough money. It's just enough for a haircut, SHF Bunny (a gift for a friend) and a Copic multiliner 0.03 (black). It really sucks when your wallet is crying.

Wow, you're just so lucky Appel. My parents aren't really the type of parent that'll buy you material things. But if I ever ask for food, ever though it costs a lot, they'll gladly buy it for me. The only way I can get a model for free is whenever they try to ask me a favor (which is heck of easy to do). But that opportunity doesn't come often XD

Appel 2012-05-12 07:47

we didnt really spend a lot so far so my father wanted to surprise me a little :P
im thinking about buying a second suitcase. but i want to try to fit everything into my current one tomorrow evening before i do that. we will be at yodobashi on monday again anyway.

arent you a MG or 1/100 only guy? i suggest you pick up one of them and try it out instead of buying them all and finding out it's not your type. :)

Simplest fix wld be 0 gundam (both types) . Not much paint needed also.

Most number of parts wld be reborns and avalanche exia dash. Exia dash has a lot of foil stickers

It may be based on an older kit, but it looks badass!!
