If you suddenly want a transformable HGUC kit,go for ReZEL Commander Type,it has big cannon,two beam saber green & red,nice color,awesome articulation. HGUC Kshatriya could be a nice purchase with it big size binder & fearsome look.

I've recently bought HGUC Unicorn Destroy mode,it's just amazing.Hopefully the Delta plus would turn out good. Whoa...that Deepstrike would be awesome if it can detached its part to become S Gundam.:D

fyuh
this is new record
just take 3 days to finish this baby :p

with this stark jegan, i'm finished 3 HGUC Unicorn Series Already (Before is Unicorn Destoy Mode and Kshatria)

i make this kit for Whitebase Gundam UC Challenge in Indonesia Jakarta
which will be held in July

this kit is awesome, there a lot of seamline (6 to be precise)
but there's no problem at all (unlike Kshatria)


as you can see Stark Jegan Without his Anti-Ship Equipment is kinda ugly
http://i406.photobucket.com/albums/p...838_resize.jpg
but when he got his equipment, the beast now become the Beauty (yeah yeah, you can say i'm mecha maniac)



it's kinda unfair actually when Stark Jegan Facing Kshatria in Unicorn Gundam OVA Episode 1
Stark Jegan is Anti-Ship MS, so it doesn't build to facing another MS
he got no shield or powerfull rifle

well anyway, i hope in july we will got ALL HGUC unicorn in the competition
enjoy :p

I've been thinking about the Kshatriya, but I'm not really sure. It's a bit expensive and for the price I could get about 4 other models... hmm still can't decide, I was thinking about the Rezel too.

I'm not much of a painter (it's too time-consuming and expensive) so stickers are really important to me. Anyone knows what I can do to get a spare sticker sheet? Thanks.

Sorry man, I really think you're.........screwed. I don't think you can order a sticker of all things. Maybe parts if you live in Japan but stickers should be quite rare unless you're willing to buy another one. Then again, I'm not the expert for finding spare things so maybe somebody else here would have a soloution??

But are you sure you didnt misplaced it? Have you looked really really hard?

My condolences, I would not want it to happen to me. Did you buy it from your own store or did you order it? Perhaps you can get an exchange if your lucky.

But man, this is the first I've heard of this sort of things happen. Guess even modern manufacturing isn't perfect I guess.

that's a bit unlucky... But it's a good opertunity for you to try out painting, trust me, it feels more worthwhile after =)

I agree with JC. Trying something new is always good. Challenge the mind and heck you might be good at it. Never know until you try.

@ JC.. The Kshatriya is a big suit for a HG 1/144 scale, that is why its expensive but well worth it. Needless to say its almost the size of a 1/100 scale that could be factor as well. I can see your point on 4 kits to the price of 1 but that 1 is the unique one.

SonicSP 2010-05-19 21:09

I have the Kshatriya too, but I've not build it yet. How long does it take to build?

Although, I have loads of kits that I have not build yet, including most of the HG Unicorn series that I've bought. Time, time, time I guess.

MoonLightShadows 2010-05-19 21:18

I got the Kshatriya, It does stand about as tall as the MG Blue Frame. I built it kind of slow, Took me about a week.
The sun was shinning through the window at the end of the day, alittle silhouette?

The blurb at that link says it's able to be assembled as the 1 Gundam - and from what I can tell by looking at the details in the manual, it should be easy enough to switch the options back and forth (by removing and re-placing the GN-Tau Drive as required).

At least, I hope it will be sturdy enough to be so.

SonicSP 2010-05-19 22:41

For a runner re-usage re-release, this actually looks like an awesome model.

Those who really hates the Reborns Cannon of Reborns Gundam would really love this one.

Flight Mode seems like my favorite pose mode for the moment. But really, the pics and poses in this booklet and some on the site seems to have make me love this release much more than I previously anticipated.

Its too bad the model manual has really throwed all clarity out of the window in regards to what the model number is of the 1 Gundam is [for which I curse this release], but other than that I love it.

In that pose how wide and tall is the Kshatriya? I'm just wondering, because I'm planning on getting a display cabinet and wondered if the Kshatriya could fit in.

Built my first Gundam model the other day. HGUC ReZEL. Was kinda fun. And I have a greater understanding and respect for figures w/ joints. It wore me out though. Did it all in 1 day.

Yeah, I remember building mine, the HG 1/144 Gundam Exia. It sucked because I'm inexperience modelers but for some reason I still love it though even though it pales in comparison with some of my other later better build kits.


Dont think this has been posted yet.

RG 1/144 RX-78 Gundam

Looks pretty good. Hope more models of this line will come out in the future.

Basically a scaled down of the MG without the inner frame or fugly face. Of course, the structuring reeks of other future MF releases. A HGFC Master will be most welcome.

Well, the latest pics from Shizuoka already show a Real Grade Zaku II in planning (no surprise there :heh: ). Though yes do hoping that this line continues on after these two mandatory releases :heh:

DC23 2010-05-20 07:52

Agree, hope they continue the series after the RG Zaku...:D

I'm hoping they'd release a RG 00 Raiser someday considering how great the HG 1/144 is. [not to mention because of my sheer fanboyism for the design and the 1/144 scale]

But they'll probably stick around with RGUC first just to test the waters. I sure hope there's a market for this, because I'm one of them. I do hope that its actually as great as it's looking at the moment but I guess the only "Real" way to know is when its actually out and in our hands.

X207 2010-05-20 12:19

i wouldnt mind an RG myself. id stick with the 78 RG for the UC line.

JC... 2010-05-20 15:32

I might get Kshatriya... It's awesome. I'll probably get the HGUC Sinanju too whenever it's released.

Sir Dearka 2010-05-20 15:36

wow... HG God Gundam looks amazing... Almost felt like re-watching G-Fighter Gundam again despite me not liking it initially ;)

DC23 2010-05-20 19:44

Would love a RG Raiser myself! :D:D:D

I think the clear version looks better. Emphasizes the Trans Am more.

I just got my MG Strike Freedom Full Burst and MG Exia Ignition Mode in! Was wondering to panel line the gundams what gundam marker should I use? GM01 black or GM02 gray? I bought a set of gundam seed destiny marker set and that comes with a fine tip gundam marker black already. Should I order a GM02 gray to panel line the white parts of the gundam?

Is the clear version out? I was gonna get Trans-Am til i heard about the clear one a few pages back.

@loon1688: I like it though! Question for you: are the LEDs as touchy as the Ignition mode version?

i believe the clear one was custom made (are u guys referring to the one shown in a hobby magazine?)

they bought the normal exia with clear parts and also a trans-am version. the clear parts are for the legs, so they painted it clear red and attached to the trans-am version, if you look at the photos, you'll only see that the legs are clear, the arms, torso and the head are all the same as the normal trans-am version

it'll be nice if they released a clear colour version somewhat like the MG strike rouge 30th anniversary type..

Oh it was? How sad, that was really nice. It would have been great as a normal release.

awww it was? thanks for the info. That's a pretty good idea though, swapping and painting the parts. Hrmmm. Time to invest on the Trans-Am version.

Still wonderin about the LEDs though :heh:

+1 for you sir

I seriously don't understand the aesthetics of Avalanche Exia Dash!? The extra knee amour and the 'skis' servers no real purpose. Having the skis on, you won't be able to walk properly on dry land! Kinda reduces its operation flexibility imo...

Your forgetting that as a GN Drive powered MS, it has no need to walk on the ground. And as for serving no purpose, as you can see their are 6 new GN verniers added to the suit because of the new attachments, that would add greatly to its speed and maneuverability.

Just receive the MG Sword Impulse today & need some opinion on 1/100 Akatsuki Fullset. How is this kit in term of articulations,detail ,e.t.c ,is it a good kit..?

My friend give me the KO Silver Akatsuki long ago,meh i don't know, it just does'nt give me those shock & awe feeling.

I've posted my reply on the Gundam 00 Mecha topic, since its off topic here.

As for the real life reason on why they're added. Its too impress more people to buy it, sort of like its an Avalanche Exia "Plus".
