Isn't the GN Drive responsible for the mobile suits' atmospheric flight? If so, I don't see why they need to put the Flag's wings back.

Doesn't mean that the Flag would go well without it's wings on. It'd be a totally different suit without it's wings since it completely changes the shape of the suit. It'd make more sense to put them back on if only to maintain the Flag's shape so that the suit's balance isn't changed. Better to put it back how it was as much as possible so that Graham has less adjustments to make to how it flies.

I see; that does make sense. Seeing how the Flag's aerodynamic relies heavily on its wings, it would indeed be a bad idea to remove its wings in favor of the GN Drive. And now, I wonder how the Flag will handle its transformation now that a bulky GN Drive is installed on its back?

I got it in, uh...Akihabara...yeah... >_>

Who needs to fly when you can float? :rolleyes:

I'd be sad to see the wings go, but the flag's upper torso doesn't really switch directions when it transforsm, so it doesn't really make a difference what kind of engine you slap on it's back.

So is $18 US dollars too much for HG 1/144 Kyrios, or not? I never got a clear answer, probably because I didn't give a clear description before.

it's a fair price, exia and dynames were around 14, kyrios and virtue are bit more expensive, 18 is good

I'm sorry; I got carried away a little... :heh: Anyway, yeah, coming from a local hobby store, $18 is a reasonable price. So go for it! ;)

beamknight87 2008-03-09 21:09

finished separating the Astray Red Frame pieces and crammed them into a box. For now that's it, no moar gunpla for a while, guess that now I only need to decide on which of the 10 models I have bought so far I will start lol
Need to buy the SSB Brawl ^^

JediNight 2008-03-09 22:09

I'm not getting that bad of a model whoring vibe from Bandai in 00 ... yet. Seed Destiny I think was about the worst I've ever seen model whoring, honestly.

At least within the construct of the story, it makes SENSE why there is the Overflag and Graham wanting to outfit a GN drive to one, etc. And besides that each power bloc only has the single MS model it seems, unlike previous series where they had lots of variants.

Now assuming they are probably going to release kits based on the Gundams from the 00P/00F mangas, then that is model whoring ;D

Astrana 2008-03-09 22:25

cleaning my room today and discovered all the HG box already stack up about 3 feet. Saw the pre-order of Drei and Nadleeh on HLJ not as hyped as before, I guess episode 22 just ruined the 00 vibe for me bah...:heh:

JediKnight

Seed was kind bad too. Strike, Allie Strike, Sowrd Strike, Launcher Strike... but at least aegis, duel... have different structures. but all 4 CB gundam has similar structures, same with Throne, not to mention about flags and tierens. I built most of the HGs but feels like only built 4 so far...

JediNight 2008-03-09 22:40

*shrug* They can offer all the models they want, doesn't mean you have to buy them :)

Wait until the show ends and only pick the ones you like most?

Astrana 2008-03-10 00:46

Thanks guys. That's all I needed. I'll get it, along with Dynames, the next time I go there.

It's a real shame that all those MG models are nothing more than "milked" models.
*sniffles*

nw is the period of hg kits.....

It'd definately be better if they alternated between the endless alternate versions of MG's already out and new ones. At the minute it's endless alternate versions. I'm out of models to buy. Once the last 3 arrive I have nothing to do once they're built :(

It's not like they're not working on some new ones; I'm pretty sure there are plenty of teams within Bandai that are working concurrently to produce new and "milked" kits at the same time. As far as progress go, it's probably real slow when it comes to newer kits. So give 'em a little time, and enjoy these variations while we wait on the new ones.

Mister Mister 2008-03-11 05:45

what I wish they'd do is make a 2.0 version of the RGM-79 GM. the GM series gets no love at all and I can only find old models.

LightningZERO 2008-03-11 05:45

You can see the GN ARMS boxart in the front page

The GN-Arms is called Type E, maybe there's other type. And the Exia is called Trans Mode...

An interesting thing with that boxart..you can see Nadleeh to the side with the new shield and rifle.

duotiga 2008-03-11 06:47

funny i cant see the boxart.......

Can't see it. Link to image please.

EXEs 2008-03-11 08:16

Here be my Exia and Dynames. Warning, long post. (Shit quality, phone camera)
http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/d...l/DSC00001.jpg

I first built the Exia, then I decided it looks quite bland, so I decided to customise it. All the red parts have been sprayed black, save the chin. Also, two of the GN sabres, the 2 GN blades, and the blade and handgun of the GN shield/gun have been sprayed black. The previously mentioned blade has been left without top coat, so it looks shiny. The GN drive, from the front has been sprayed black, because the previously present green sticker and clear plastic looked amateurish. The GN drive at the back has some silver specks (done with a quick spray with silver) to give the impression GN particles are being emitted :). Posing is limited because one of the leg joints fall apart whenever I move it :(. Oh yeah, I lost the side torso plates ( I wasn't even aware till I looked at some pretty Exia model pics, bah I'm ignorant)



Dynames was fun to build :D. Not much customisation yet, due to IB. Green parts sprayed with British Green, whole model top coated. GN drive from the front, like Exia, has been sprayed black instead of a shiny green sticker (eww). If you can see, the pistol holsters are black with silver. I accidentally made that when the silver ran out when I was spraying them, so I covered them with black (I love 'em, btw). Posing is great, as you can see. Btw, some dude mentioned back several pages the GN sabres fall out of the ass vent slots. Mine fit fine.

These two are the first kits that I've built in a long time (I built a 2 others before, just snipped and snapped together, I threw them away), and I think I did a fine job. Now for Kyrios and Virtue/Nadleeh :)

Pride 2008-03-11 08:30

Saw the boxart, type-E probably represents type-Exia or something.

LightningZERO 2008-03-11 10:03

Exia without the red is actually quite cool :D

Oh, anyone has the GFF Zeta Gundam? Wondering what's it quality, its transformation system and whether I should try playing with this figure or just decide a pose and leave it as if?

Busterbeam 2008-03-11 11:18

im more partial to the astraea then the exia to be honest.

dont know about GFF's. tend to stay away from those. a lot of them do look really cool tho.

That makes two of us. But don't worry, once the RX-78 ver 2.0 comes out, I'm pretty sure a GM 2.0 will come rolling next; they share the same structure, after all. =)

The GN Arms' box art looks great. I can see Nadleeh on the background. =O

Sir Dearka 2008-03-11 12:38

Talking about GMs, the next MS I gonna buy is the Fix Figuration of the famous Sniper Custom. One of the Federation aces scored most kills during the One Year War in this baby. That's one helluva reason to buy it beside the fact that I love green long-range Mobile Suits :D

HG GN Arms DYNAMES!!! If they say this Cannon + Launcher, do they mean the big-ass cannon Neil used when he fired into the orbit to save the endangered civilians during the "Allelujah rescue action"?

As you can see the Type-E GN-ARMS had some melee weapons (Blades + Claws) from the promo shots of it.

The Dynames (Type-D) GN-ARMS should have some range weaponary (Cannon + Launcher) in this case.

Bandai is still hush-hush on this case, but this is from a insider info (type97, for those who know their Gunpla info source) , so take heed if range weponary is your thing and skip the Type-E GN-ARMS.
