Since I can get only one, it's a pain to choose between the MG Red Frame, Blue Frame and now the Strike Noir :(

I have the Strike Noir, and personally, I think it is one of the most beautiful (if not the most beautiful) Gundam designs to-date. Especially if you apply custom colors to it.

Then again, black is my favorite-color...

For me, it was a must-have.

base on dalong's point system alone, Red Frame gets 112 and Strike Noir gets 91.

Even w/o points, i'd suggest Red Frame, i'm not sure why you're still going through kits and making more options for yourself.

At the end, its your decision, you can't seem to make up your mind which one to choose. In my opinion, this is your decision, whichever one you like, there's no right or wrong in choosing the kit.

If you want suggestions, personally, i'd recommend Red Frame. It has those dual Katana's, and looking at those dual katana's and the pose, they're great

Eh? I think its personal preferences. If you like dual-Katana, the Red Frame is your thing... if you like guns-blazing and a sexy-evil dark color scheme, go with the Strike Noir.

Relying on points for toys is just... iffy.

Not that I am bashing on the Red Frame, but its really personal preferences than anything else.

i know, its just there for reference, looking at another person's judgement of the kit, how/what he thinks of the kits.

i did cited afterwards, it is his decision, whichever one he likes he should just go for that one.

If he is looking for opinions, i gave mine, and cited Dalong's reviews about it.

Butagami 2011-05-06 13:23

Picking from those three kits, I'd go for the Red Frame as well, it just looks so awesome.

Now for another MG dilemma, my own: For a first MG, should I go for Freedom, or Red Frame? I think I'll get both eventually, but which should be first? you only get to do your first mg once, so it's hard to choose...

Appel 2011-05-06 14:09

thats a tough choice... both are supposed to be great models. i think in this case it really depends on which suit you like better.
also, rrobbert184 on youtube has pretty good previews for both models:
freedom: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCS8hLmv13E
red frame: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IdoC...51F31BDA5DD79A (8 videos in a playlist)

i actually just ordered the freedom about a week ago though :P but because of the golden week in japan i didnt get it yet >_>

I know, that's the hard part. At the moment I'm leaning more towards Freedom, since it's a "normal" MG (that is, inner frame, armor covers that up nicely) while most of the inner frame of the RF remains visible, with only minimal armor.

It's not really a choice of "which one should I buy", but more one of "which one should i buy first?. Which of those two makes a better introducion to the MG line?

Tak 2011-05-06 17:53

well, the freedom is 6 years older than the astray. as a kit from 2004 it has all regular master grade features and because of its relativ age it probably is a little less complex than the red frame, making it a great candidate for everyones first master grade.
but because of its age it probably isnt as impressive as the red frame (from a mechanical point of view) and you might be a little underwhelmed or disappointed.

i havent built any of them but knowing the SEED kits im sure that both of them are awesome and both would be a great first MG experience!
however, since i have built the perfect grade red frame and because ive seen rrobberts review of the MG version i do know that it is an EXTREMELY impressive kit. so if you are just worried about your first MG experience you should go with that one in my opinion!
but if you are more of a fan of a rather traditional gundam design you might want to go with the freedom

I agree. Besides, the Red Frame has peg on his hands to better hold his (gigantic) weapons :)

I've just finish the Freedom with all of his decals, dry transfer, panel lining and it looks beautiful :love:

If you are not very familiar with Gunplas, I'd recommend the Freedom, which is more simple to build, to gain some experience and after, get a more complex kit like the Red Frame.

My twin's first Gunpla was the PG 00 Raiser so.... At the final, it's up to you ;)

yeah, ive seen that about the missing peg on its hand in rrobberts review... damn, looks like ill need to get out the sticky tag again XD

also, these images on gundamguy REALLY make me want to make bandai release a MG delta plus! =D

Se7en Sabers 2011-05-07 10:26

I think Bandai has already planned to release a MG of the Delta + in not a too distant future (after Epyon and 00 Raiser) since we've already plenty of Unicorn's versions, MG Rezel, etc...

Bandai has founded a new franchise to milk :D

you will get a sinanju version before that!

im pretty sure as well that we will get one! i mean riddhe is an important character, im sure his suit will get a MG!
the delta plus is high up on my wishlist and it makes me happy that it is very likely that we will see one.

you still think so?^^ what exactly makes you think that there will be an OVA MG sinanju even though the ver.ka MG sinanju has the same design as the one in the anime?

Meehlimo 2011-05-07 14:35

K well i havent posted in a while so ill chime in. both the strike noir and freedom are solid kits. the internal frames are strong at all joints. the noir however is just a remodel of the original MG strike from way back. it has weak ankle joints n both suffer from the lack of the pegs hands for the weapons. overall they are both awesome kits in all respects. just my 2 cents. for the noir btw i would deff recommend a stand to really get to pose it correctly. it can stand on its own but its limited to its heavy striker pack.

Se7en Sabers 2011-05-07 15:22

I've just ordered the MG Red Frame on HLJ :p

I think the pegs on the hands, the two chrome katanas and the tactical arm 2L sold me.

Anyway, thanks for your answers :)

That Delta Plus looks absolutely amazing. Wow..

And I want a MG Delta Plus badly too. :) It'll definitely be a nice addition to the UC Master Grade line. Oh yeah, a MG Stark Jegan too, although that's more of a stretch.

GrahamAker 2011-05-10 01:07

I am planning to buy MG 00 raiser and exia . APart from these i am planning to get Gundam MkII Aeug ver2 OR Sinanju ka? Which one is better?

duotiga 2011-05-10 02:44

sinanju ver ka. no question asked

Appel 2011-05-10 03:17

personally i think the MK-II 2.0 is a better model in itself because its a simple yet awesome build and its more posable.
but the sinanjus design is way more awesome^^

edit: well, at least my MG freedom and HG avalanche exia dash are finally on their way to me... that damn golden week! XD

Thanks a lot for the advice! Based on what people have said about those two kits, I'll buy both and first assemble Freedom. I'll go with taht one first, since I'm planning to do it "properly" (sand the nubs off, gloss-coat, panel-line wash, decal, flat-coat). For that the freedom seems much easier, since it's a simpler design. I saw rroberts review and some others, and noticed how Red Frame is made up of a lot more smaller parts. way more complex. Just the sanding alone will take a lot of time. Also, with freedom i can afford to mess up a bit since more of it is covered by the armor (which I'll do last) while RF's frame is pretty much out in the open.

One more thing: If I assembled the RF first, wouldn't the freedom dissapoint me afterwards, since it's simpler?

Note that this is all planned for after the summer, as I won't have time before then (Currently preparing to "leave the nest" then going off to work on a camping for 2 months, then starting college)

Appel 2011-05-10 08:08

since you plan to put so much work into the freedom i really dont think it will disappoint you^^
the model itself might be simpler but the painted end result will be very satisfying for you

edit: not really a gundam but check out what i got today^^

has anyone completed painting a gn sword 4 full saber? i would like to know how much work it would be for the 00Q scheme. its still on my list to build behind 3 other kits.

GrahamAker 2011-05-11 11:57

sinanju or gundam mkII or freedom or strike freedom or infinite justice or destiny or gat strike or nu gundam? Which MG to be ordered? Phew finally ordered 00 raiser and exia from hlj.

-sinanju is a great model but its a rather difficult build. many small or easily breakable parts and it feels like you put on a million stickers on it... but the end result is just awesome, especially if you have the titanium finish version^^
id recommend it if you have build some master grades before.

-the MK-II is simply amazing. great build and awesome design! and its not even that expensive^^ it also comes with a great base that can be combined with that of the zeta 2.0
its a must buy in my opinion!

-i have yet to build the freedom. it should arrive on friday, i can tell you what i think of it once ive build it^^ that will take some time though because i want to paint it.

-strike freedom was my first master grade. it was fun to put together, its very posable but in my opinion the backpack sucks. plus, the full burst version is a ripoff in my opinion because a) not all visible parts of the frame are shiny gold and the bases gimmick that you can attatch the DRAGOONs to it simply doesnt work without putting a little more work into it.
i can recommend it, its still a good kit.

-i havent build infinite justice but i intend to buy it later. however, i have heard mixed reports about it. some say that many parts fall off all the time, others say its a rocksolid kit. cant say more.

-havent build the destiny and i dont really know anything about it because i dont care about the destiny :P i just hate shinn too much XD

-the strike is a good kit! i have the aile strike and i really like it. its nothing spectecular but its a really solid kit. nothing is really bad about it (except for the old hands without pegs for the weapons...) but nothing stands out as being awesome, too. i can definitely recommend it though^^

-i dont have the nu gundam but its high on my must-buy list :P its an amaro suit afterall^^

Se7en Sabers 2011-05-11 16:11

Regarding the online shop, do you prefer Hobby Search (1999.co.jp) or Hobby Link Japan ?

I've only bought my kits from HLJ so I don't know much about Hobby Search...

Appel 2011-05-11 16:58

ive only ordered kits from HLJ so far and that worked very well so far.

Any paint work you're doing to it, do it before assembly to avoid getting any on the clear parts.
If it's just the basic 00Q scheme, there are about half a dozen areas on the blue parts that need to be blocked in white. Plus panel lining, that's it.
Note that some of the parts that need to be painted white are the handles of the 'gunblade' bits, and the handle of the sword itself. So if you're going to be switching the configuration much, it's worth giving those bits a good coat of varnish or two.
