i dont think it looks messy anymore. its really funny, but the longer you look at it the more sense the whole thing actually makes :P
i mean, it DOES have a ton of weapons on it but those dont even hinder the articulation. and when one weapons runs out of ammo you can just jettison it or dismount the whole backpack.
the backpack itself isnt even all that big. its just two hyper bazookas with additional equipment and two gatlings on hardpoints. it doesnt even reach down to the legs that much. without the boosters it can actually stand on its own!
and the arms only look messy when you have everything attatched, like i did it.
i REALLY like the design now! it looks good and seems to be a really effective weapons system.

What's a reasonable price to sell:

SD Exia
SD Exia Repair 2
SD 00 Raiser
SD 00 Qan[T]
SD 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G

...on eBay?

They're all used & built with some stickers applied. Only thing I'm including is the original instruction booklet, original box, and the kit itself build.

Chiu_fan 2011-12-31 11:56

Considering that it is already built. You could only sell it maybe at half the price of when you originally bought it because nobody really wants to buy model kit that is already built. Though you could increase the selling price if it was well built and with an awesome paintjob.

personally id pay more for a model that has been built yet... id just put them in at a 7 bucks starting price and see where it goes.

Appel - the decals was pretty cool...nice job on the FA Unicorn too...really have to consider getting 1 now...

Bonta Kun 2011-12-31 20:32

Well I wouldn't call it exactly great exicting new news but still I myself can't help be exicted!:D

MG 1/100 Duel Gundam Assaultshroud(It says review but seems more like preview to me but doesn't matter as I'm totally excited for it!)

thanks^^ i have the special version of the action base for my regular MG unicorn and i wanted to have a fitting one for the full armor version.
it was pretty easy to make, too! just get some clear decal paper, print the decals, let it dry, seal them with a top coat or clear primer (i used Mr. Metal primer which can also be used as a very hard glossy top coat) and then put them on like regular waterslide decals.
making your own decals is very easy and i totally recommend it! especially since they will be waterslide decals which are incredibly easy to use and essentially fool proof since once they are on the model you can still move them until they dried a little. and even then you can add a drop of water to make them movable again.

I got them at:

Reserve Price $48.00
Buy It Now Price $55.00
Shipping $10.00

But the auction has 1 bid at $10.50 and there's no way I'm going to sell the kits at such a low price. The auction is ending in a few minutes actually...lol

I am going to relist it at like

Starting Price $40.00
Reserve Price $55.00
Buy It Now Price $60.00

Looks like a mod of MG Unicorn, ehh.

Appel 2012-01-01 08:05

its definitely a mod. you can see some unpainted red psycho frame pieces in the side skirts.

edit: it was displayed next to the MG FA unicorn though, so maybe this is a hint that they will indeed release it soon.

I wouldn't be too surprised if we saw Unicorn Banshee MG early 2012 since it's basically:

MG Unicorn Gundam
- swap out white armor for black armor
- swap out red psycho frame for gold psycho frame
- change up the head & v-fin
- new weapons

hrm. It comes to about 4000yen new for those SD kits which i guess is about $50 USD. I'm not sure whether pple pay more or less for built kits in the US but if i'm buying built kits i'll be looking for at least 50% off new prices unless its some rare limited production kit. Good luck on your sale! :)

dunno about that, I'd think they will want to sit on the demand for FA for abit before deciding on Banshee.
Q2/maybe possibly Q3 sounds like a good time for it me thinks.

But I'm going by what I paid through GG Infinite & Gundam Store and More. I'm also doing some light comparisons to what people are selling them for on eBay as well...

=P

.
.

So I just adjusted the pricing...

Shipping FREE USPS Priority Mail
Reserve Price $47.00 --> this is the minimum until it sells Auction style
Buy It Now Price $55.00 --> this is the price if you want to just buy it straight up\
Starting Auction Price $25.00 --> this is the minimum bid the auction will start at

I think that's a bit more reasonable considering I'm also offering Free USPS Priority Mail shipping (2-3 business day delivery to anywhere in the continental US).

If anyone is interested just search for 140673249606 on eBay.com

=P

That's the item number for the auction.

duotiga 2012-01-01 11:39

a word of advise: if you sell the kit that is fixed, ppl normal look for half the price you get originally , even for msib kits which you do not fixed when you sell, it would normally market around 20-30% less the original price

i agree, if the unicorn variations dont sell well, why would they release another one?
but im kinda sure that it will sell decently. im sure that many people didnt buy the unicorn yet because they were waiting for a full armor version! they also said that there WILL be more MGs fromt he unicorn series. they didnt say what MGs but since the banshee is just a unicorn variation they probably will make it. even of it does sell poorly they can make a profit with it since the developement costs for it are minimal.

So you're saying my eBay posting is good or not?

I mean I'm even offering Free USPS Priority Mail shipping. It's gonna cost me like $5 ~ $6 right off the bat just on the shipping label alone.

personally i think it isnt good at all. you cant expect more than 20 or maybe 30 bucks for 5 used (by that i mean built) SD kits.

Hm. Im guessing maybe sometime between the upcoming episode and the following one. But its definitely coming out sooner or later :) I read up a bit on wikis and it seems like...

well...
Spoiler:


the way i see it there are not THAT many candidates for MGs at this point:
-the banshee,
-one of the neo zeon grunt suits (my money is on the geara zulu because they can make many variations of it!),
-one of the federation grunt suits (the jesta, the jegans and the GM II and III are good candidates for that),
-and the kshatriya. they said that it would need a die cast frame but since they are currently trying to minimize the amount of plastic in their kits that COULD be possible sooner or later!

oh also, the review of the destroy mode HGUC banshee is on dalongs site now. it confirms that it does indeed come with the regular unicorn armaments (beam magnum and shield) and with the regular unicorn torso piece. no painting required!

suiton629 2012-01-01 13:50

The grunts suit may come out in the future nearer to the final episodes when the lead mobile suits are all done.. but you never know Bandai may surprise us and pop one up in the coming months! :)

and the HG Kshatriya can be considered a MG price-wise, plastic-amount-wise, boxsize-wise.. lol. but a MG version will definitely be great. :p

probably. but we will see how they do it^^ but im very sure that they will release one or two grunts.

Butagami 2012-01-01 19:15

I hope they'll put some gimmicks into the MG Banshee's weapons, because otherwise it's just a simple recolor.

And about MG's. I wonder what they have in store for us this year...
We already know for certain: Duel, Titus, Sparrow, Banshee, Gafran (?).
Almost certain: Buster, Blitz, Aegis, Sandrock Kai, Heavy Arms Kai, Nataku, Age 2
What would be nice: X (haha, who am I kidding, not frikkin likely), Wing 0 (so they at least have a proper MG of the lead character's suits), the first season gundams from 00 (probably another 10 years, wing style)

Anything I missed?

I think Hyaku Shiki has a good chance of getting an MG next year. With the release of HG Delta Gundam, it also has a good chance.

I agree, he should as we all know Exia Repair II won't get an MG anytime soon.

you mean a hyaku shiki 2.0? that wont happen any time soon. they said they kinda want to do it but only if the delta plus and delta gundam sell well.
you also have to keep in mind that it will be gold plated again. and the HG delta gundam already costs more than 4000 yen! a new hyaku shiki would be even more expensive...
i also dont see why the hyaku shiki needs a new version. the kit itself is fine the way it is as far as i can see! there are other kits that could need a 2.0 version, like the Nu gundam or the GP series.

Bonta Kun 2012-01-01 19:44

On the note about 00, if I had to pick a MG to see I'd go with 0 Gundam, while there are others like Throne Eins etc, 0 Gundam would be great.
Rather like it's simple but silghtly modern look.

And how "almost certain" would you say MG Aegis would be cause I'd love to see that, along with something like the Saviour.

At the very least, I'd say an MG Aegis is more likely than an MG Saviour. With the SEED remastering coming up, it wouldn't surprise my if Bandai revisits the CE kits.

Let see some sales figure from a major retailer during 2011 here :-

http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/feature.h...&creative=7399

After filtering out non-Gunpla merchandise, we have the following ranking :-

1st MG 1/100 MSN-001A1 Delta Plus
2nd MG 1/100 GN-0000+GNR-010 OO Raiser
3rd HGUC 1/144 RGM-96X Jesta
4th MG 1/100 Epyon EW
5th MG 1/100 RX-0 FA Unicorn Ver.Ka 
6th MG 1/100 Deathscyth EW
7th HGUC 1/144 RMS-179 GM II
8th RG 1/144 GAT-X105 Aile Strike
9th RG 1/144 MS-06F Zaku II
10th RG 1/144 ZGMF-X10A Freedom

Now it seems quite logical why Bandai threw a HG Delta out of nowhere. They want to test the market's reaction before officially getting MG Delta and Hyak 2.0 out.

Hm. The MG 00 series is still popular.
Looks like Bandai has reason to pump out a MG 1/100 Exia Repair 2? :p:p

GN0010 Nosferatu 2012-01-01 21:13

Exia Repair 2 is never coming.

They'll make a PG Gaga first.

of course the OO raiser is still popular... its release was just a few months ago >__> and if you look closely, thats the ONLY OO kit in that top 10 list. so no, thats actually an argument for them to NOT make the R2.

Dude, as much as I hate to say this, but the 00 line is dead, get over it.

From that list, seems AGE isn't selling well at all... Hmm. Bandai really went all out on AGE, seems it was a bad decision.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2012-01-01 21:24

Why would someone want the Exia Repair 2 anyway? I would push for Exia Repair 3, at least that comes with a big ass gun. What did Exia Repair 2 use? A sword.

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEAL exiting.

Which is reason enough for Bandai to do a "safe" release of the MG 1/100 Exia R2 which would have relatively low costs and they could sell another set of green LED's... =P

Yes yes, I meant Hyaku Shiki 2.0. Well, though it will cost a lot, there's no stopping for people who really likes it.

Oh, I thought it's the other way around. I thought they'll make MG Delta Gundam if Delta + and Hyaku Shiki 2.0 sells well. I must read it backwards, LOL!

Nu Gundam and Sazabi definitely needs 2.0 versions. As for Hyaku Shiki, I think it will not hurt they made one. For its fans, it's definitely a good news.

I think Jesta has a chance of getting an MG, but I am most certain that Banshee will have its chance this year.

how is it a safe release if the OO kits arent selling well anymore? not even the OO seven sword is in that list and that was the latest OO release!
