It looks nice to me. It's a limited edition too which is the main reason why I want it. The price just kills though because the normal OYW kit is only like $35 at most.

There is a slot underneath the pelvis you can mount it on, plus it has a second slot on its lower back (the same place you can mount the GN Mega Launcher on the Gadessa).

or you can just buy the normal one for $35 and paint it grey and light blue, save your self a good $40.

Water based im my opinion are the best out of the stickers because un like the dry or normal style decals if you dont get the decal in a nice even position you can move it as long as its still wet.

all you need is a small pair of scissors, a little bowl of warm water tweezers and a q-tip.
Just cut out the decal (dont try to take off the paper)
stick it in the water
wet the q-tip squeeze out the water so its not dripping
dab the area you want to place the decal
use the tweezers to pick up the decal from the water
then use the q tip to slide the decal away from the paper backing
adjust the decal to your licking.

quick and easy once you get the hang of it. and by no means do you have to use all the decals that came with the kit. sometimes to many can ruin it. and you dont have to follow the placement of the decals just put them to your liking.

and regarding the decals with the green backing, those are in deed normal stickers, try to bend the paper at one of seams of the sticker to get it to pop out a bit.

Paint and decals cost money too :(

Anyway, I've been working on my Dynames. Played around with 1/144 Cherudim and look what i came up with!

I have that, got it in Hong Kong at the expo for HKD$320/USD$40. The more drab colors really emphasis how cool the OYW RX-78 is - its a very much a machine with lines and panels, the very opposite of cartoony like the Ver2.0. But if you look on dalong.net there seem to be several G3 "limited" so I don't think they're really that rare.

Three semi-related questions:


*Are there any metallic-paint HCMPro figures, aside from the SP edition of the Exia? Right now, it's the only HCMPro I have, but I don't really like the ones I've seen without metallic paint.

*Are any of the 'enemy' mobile suits from 00 in the HCMPro (1/200) scale? It would be neat to have a unit to be a counterpart to the SP-005...

*Aside from in HG, is there any word on what other lines the Exia R2 will be released in?

(I may just stick with the HG anyway, but it would be nice to know.)

You got it for a good deal! I might just wait, maybe the price will go down eventually. Let's just hope no one buys it. T_T

1. Idk
2. IIRC there's a tieren hcm-pro figure
3. Nothing about it being released in a different scale/version.

From Ngee Khiong:


He says it might be a fan mod instead of a Damashi because the joints don't seem like one of a Damashi, but I don't know. The joints of the Damashi 0 Gundam/Crossbone seem rather similar.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-04-07 20:22

That looks absolutely nothing like a Damashii Alvaaron.

I hear it's a modded MG kit.

ryanvamp 2009-04-07 21:31

I always wondered why they never released this (and I don't think that the mobile armor is a good enough reason)....the mod version looks really good.


Thanks for the tips on the water decals guys!

Amber.Dawn 2009-04-07 21:48

Hmm...still waiting for Arche.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-04-07 22:30

You and everyone else.

Un1ver5e 2009-04-08 00:20

Nah...I'm a Susanowo/Masurao guy. :heh:

Kelrys 2009-04-08 05:20

I'm waiting for the 0 Gundam. I missed out the no grade one.

I have the Nemo and I will attest that the kit itself is exellent. I dont pait or use decals on my models and it looks fine.
