I order a gundam seed destiny marker set #1 for my MG Strike Freedom and here I encountered some problems from fedEX, they asked to give them an invoice copy (which I can do it) and a TSCA form (click the link). So here is my question, is the marker is toxic or non-toxic?
I suppose it's not something that would damage anything, right? :heh: Hope someone could help me to fill this form...

As far as I'm aware, Gundam Markers are non-toxic. Even if you lick the thing it shouldn't do anything to you (though you may feel a little nauseous).

Overpriced marker, underpriced drug, whatever you make of it :)

gundam markers are basically.....paint markers.

Painting that 1/144 Char figure must have been a real pain.

Anyone who owns the MG Sinanju knows the size diameter of the vulcans in the head? I want to replace those with some metal ones.

StrikeFreedomV2 2010-12-19 14:55

Hey Guys, i got a question and i hope someone is kind enough to answer it:

I recently bought the HGUC Unicorn Gundam in both U- and D-Mode. Love both kits and wan't to display one of them with beam sabers. My problem: Both kids are tall and beams are too short which for me looks stupid. I found out the HGUC Jegan kits come with very long beams. Anyone knows if those fit into the Unicorns beam saber-handles? I already tried the one from the ReZel, MG beams and HG 00 beams. Nothing fits.

Thanks in advance.

JC... 2010-12-19 15:11

Yeah, those short beamsabers are annoying. But, as a temporary solution, they're short so they fit on the wrist. I can't remember what the weapon is called.

StrikeFreedomV2 2010-12-19 15:16

You mean those beam saberīs that flips out of the forearm? I think itīs a nice idea to have but I prefer a handheld beam saber.

MoonLightShadows 2010-12-19 16:28

All of my HG Unicorn Beams are mixed up in the same box. The only beams that seem to want to fit is the shorter beams wich is probably Unicorns. The Jegans, Stark Jegans, Rezel and Kshatriya's longer beams, none want to fit in unicorns handel. :(

For real? That sucks big time. But thank you for clearing that for me.

I find it pretty weird that grunt suits get giant beams but the lead suit gets tiny ones.

Given that they're mounted onto the forearms, the beams may be smaller than the ones stored on the backpack.

X207 2010-12-19 22:32

theres another option about beam sabers. it takes a bit of work to accomplish it. i made some blue beam sabers for my 144 00 gundam. all i had to do was take the clear plastic (coloured or not) and cut saber lenght sections. the hard part is getting the shape and the butt to fit in the saber hole. the only annoyance is getting a comparable colour to paint the clear tree/tray sections of plastic.

Sadly, that's not the case. All handles are exactly the same :(

I already tried to put beams from 00 kits into Unicorn's handles but the endresult was... underwhelming. I ruined 3 blades from other kit's like Arios and Seravee and i don't wan't to superglue :(

Maybe I should just buy a Jegan and use the handle from that kit.

JC... 2010-12-20 04:20

Has anyone thought of reshaping the peg on the bottom of the blade? I did that to a MG Exia blade so it would fit into the barrel of my GM Sniper.

Anyone know where I can get those clear rods/tubes or something similar that connects to the MG Strike Freedom's Dragoons?

my 144 00 gundam didn't come with any beam sabers. i made those from the clear runners that hold the pieces on the trays. i used a exacto to taper off the runners and make a holding peg without using any glue. sharpies were used to colour them. i was kicking myself for not waiting for the 00 kit that had the gn sword III. the kit i have has only GN II swords and beam sabers were not provided. the only problem with using the plastic runner for homemade beam sabers is the butt to hold them in place. here's a picture of the runners before i played around with them.

The only thing I painted were the thrusters in the back for both, which aren't visible. Other than that, everything is original. It could be the lighting... IDK.

Remember the China Gundam statue posted a few pages back? Well, it got destroyed by Japan's RX-78-2 in an epic battle.

Okay, that didn't happen, but it's gone.

Quote:

TOKYO (AFP) – Japan's 18 metre (60 foot) tall Gundam combat robot, hero to millions of sci-fi animation fans, emerged victorious Monday after apparently banishing a lookalike rival from a Chinese amusement park.
Japanese devotees of the "Mobile Suit Gundam" anime series had been up in arms after television news reports showed a giant golden figure that closely resembled their beloved battle-bot towering over a fun park in China.
Japan's Fuji Television showed images of the robot, of similar height and with similar features to a giant Gundam that has been on show and drawn large crowds in Tokyo and then coastal Shizuoka in recent months.
Like Gundam, the Chinese figure bears the logos EFSF and WB on its shoulders -- short, as all Gundam fans know, for 'Earth Federation Space Force', which controls space colonies, and 'White Base', Gundam's mothership.
A spokesman for China's Floraland park in Chengdu, Sichuan province, was quoted as telling Fuji TV that the design was "completely original", but that the park was "remodelling" it because some people said it looked like Gundam.
On a Japanese chatroom, one outraged writer thundered that "they have no shame", another critiqued the Chinese robot's colour scheme, and a third suggested it should be called "Gansaku" -- Japanese for "counterfeit".
Gundam's human defence forces were readying for a possible copyright battle.
"We have got information that a copied statue of 'Mobile Suit Gundam' is being built at a theme park in Sichuan," said an official of Sotsu Co., which handles trademark and merchandising issues for the TV and movie series.
"We are now collecting information as the details are still unclear."
Officials at the Chinese theme park denied the existence of the statue on Monday. A witness told AFP the statue had been removed from the premises.
The Gundam anime series, first aired in Japan in 1979, and its spin-offs, have won legions of enthusiastic fans in many countries, including China.
The copyright battle may not be over yet. Fuji network also showed figures at the park that resembled characters from Japan's "Ultraman" sci-fi series.

You're right, but still. IF I make the step to MG, freedom'll probably be the first one. First I'll have to find things like a modeller's knife and a decent pair of plyers (instead of my nail scissors)

i don't know myself. it was pain in the butt to make them they're far from perfect from up close but rough enough to the trick. though the relatively square butts do deform the 00 saber handles a bit over time. it would be much easier if i could only use sand paper but it makes them cloudy, shaving leaves a clear enough transparency.

I've put together several MG kits and used a pair of paper scissors to get them out of the runners and nail clippers to remove the nubs. It works well for me.

aha I'm still using nail clippers, even when building PGs.

When I started, I slowly started going up grade by grade and then when I got to PG, I told myself that I would just stick with this grade. I only have 3 PGs, but as kool and big as they are, I like to limit the growth of a collection now, just to give them that centerpiece feel. Plus, the prices just keep going up. I always have an itch to build more, but I think my interest in MG is slowly coming back. I think the only new addition to my PGs will have to be the God Gundam, if it is ever made... if not, then I'm done with that grade.

I'm actually on the verge of ordering 3 MG kits in the upcoming days. Won't say which ones, but it'll be awesome.

Anyways, here are 2 videos of my PGs. Maybe you've seen em...

here's my brave, theres still little bit of finishing to do but this is it! i custom colored it grey, inspired by the Delta+ :]

comments?

edit: i personally think the brave's engine/thrusters are the sexiest part of the design :]

StratoSpear 2010-12-22 02:10

I wonder how it'd look if you color the orange visor red. :]

Nailclippers are a good tip, thnaks for that! But I think using scissors to cut them loose isn't really good for the scissors' sharpness
