I only stick to HG when it comes to 1/144.

Real grade is created as compromise

Honestly, I should build and post non-grade 1/144 model as a spite...

Actually people who buy NG/oldschool HG 1/144 kits and customize/paint them to HG+ quality found today usually earn a lot more points in most people's books

Its not easy getting those things to high quality levels, its quite a chore, tons of masking, chopping up pieces, scratch building parts, plus the usual detailing and painting etc.

i can't find HG RX-78 ver G30th anymore. it seems like no longer produced by bandai.
i was in korea and visiting the gundam base in i-park mall. it was one of most complete gunpla store in the world

Shinobi2013 2013-11-19 08:25

The ver G30th is rare these days, I found some but they sell it twice the original price. Best option is to buy the HG Forever Gundam which uses the ver G30th mold as a base and still has the parts to convert into normal RX-78.

Providenceangle 2013-11-19 08:57

Speaking of real grade. No news on the next release?

Also, I have a unopened/unbuilt HG Strike. I wonder how different it is, from their re-release. I might pick it up and do a side by side build, that is, before I tear down the original HG and make it totally different lol.

OH YES FUCK YES

Oh, and apparently Gyan sold like new brand candy, thanks to the anime.

Ironically, when it comes to SEED/Destiny Gundams, RG proportion is still off even though it's lightyears better compared to SEED/Destiny old HGs.

Even though I heard Forever's color-tint for the white is a bit different from the G-30th, I think that's a great suggestion :).

If you want the RX-78-2, I would suggest the MG Ver. 3.0...especially if you don't have one yet.

The gray parts of the rerelease Seed kits are recolored into gunmetal as far as I concerned plus an adaptor to connect into action base, comes also with clear stickers of ZAFT/OMNI logos and GATX or ZGMF numbers as well as the effect parts(Doesn't have one for Freedom, Justice, Providence, Forbidden, Raiden and Calamity though).

He's looking for HG RX78 ver. G30th, DO WE MAKE OURSELVES CLEAR?

I think he was asking about the actual new release for the HG Strike, as in with the new mold. Thats what I gathered from the way I read it though :heh:

No I mean the unreleased hg Aile Strike. I have the one you're mentioning already. That's the "old" HG I'm referring to.

Yep! It looks fairly new too. Looking at some pre-release photos. The armor and face look a lot better. Of course it's going to boil down to the price/quality of the new molds. I hope they at least put clear eye pieces in with it this time.

suiton629 2013-11-19 12:01

Clear eye pieces in an HG? Not likely.

That's reserved for RG, MG, and PG...and occasionally SD.

At 1,365 yen it's the same price as the Build Strike(cheaper ever so slightly i thing?). It's using the same mold as the Build Strike so it'll be pretty good quality I think.

I dont think there's much point in putting clear eye pieces for HGs though. It helps with MG and higher due to light piping, but the effect would be very non-apparent in 1/144 scale. I DO think there's been HGs with clear eye pieces though so who knows. :heh:

I don't think I've seen any HG "Gundams" with clear eye pieces. I think all the GMs (Jesta has too, as well as Razel... I don't own the jegan but I'm fairly sure it has too. Please correct me if anyone has it and it doesn't) have clear lenses for the camera eye. The HGUC Delta plus has clear eye piece as well. So grunts get but not the main suits? lol

Edit: No I'm wrong. Unicorn and Banshee have translucent colored eye pieces.

I just hate having to make my own clear eye parts:

suiton629 2013-11-19 13:30

Technically the GMs have a clear visor.. So did the Genoaces. But never have I seen clear eye pieces themselves.

Your suggestion is rather invalid since you have no experience with anything UC.
The 2.0 and OYW versions are much more enjoyable to build. 3.0's inner frame is disappointing in comparison.

A bunch of HG kits have clear pieces for the eyes. It varies from one kit to another.

HG 1/100 kits? Yes! Most of them do, but 1/144 scale. Besides the Unicorn/Banshee... I don't know of any. I'm thinking hard. From my collection, only the Unicorn has clear eyes(even if they are just pink instead of green, like they should be). I know it doesn't bother most builders, as they paint their eyes/use seals. I'm just a nut for LED mods so, more "clear" parts always helps.

It definitely varies for the gundam types but grunt types like GMs, Jegans and Jestas all use coloured clear visors, which IMO are better for LEDs anyway since 2 tiny eyes on a gundam are not really that visible anyway.

Well I actually silicon mold and clear resin cast the whole head. So I can do the eyes and head camera. It depends on the kit though.

Well after abit of time scanning through dalong, I guess I was wrong. :heh:

Appel 2013-11-19 15:32

I vastly prefer painted eyes and even stickers over LEDs to be honest^^ LEDs run out of juice and then the eyes don't look good anymore... Paint and stickers are a little more consistent in that regard :P

As for my Strike Freedom:
"Status from Tue, 19.11.2013 14:58
The shipment has been processed in the parcel center of origin
Next step The shipment will be transported to the destination parcel center"
HHHHNNNNGGG I guess that means I's gonna arrive on Friday or so... And if I have SUPER bad luck I'll have to pick it up from the customs office. But I have no time for that because I work every day! So I would have to make the parcel service pick it up there which is gonna take another 2 days or so! At this point I am not sure whether I'm gonna have it before the weekend or not ;__;

How do LEDs run out of juice? I'm sure they burn out over time. Like years when used in a gundam lol. If you meant batteries? I use DC as in USB. So they never run out of power.

$150 to spare on GunPla. What should I get?

GO!

That too. =D

But lately I've been going on and off with SDs. Cheap, quick fun builds, but needs stickers heavily (annoying to me).

>_<

I would get the MG Wing Gundam EW and MG Wing Zero Custom, but those 2 need the newer Wing EW frame and mold since they both use the crappy old 2004 frame and mold from MG Wing Gundam Ver. Ka.

Did they?

:: check Dalong ::

You are correct. =)
I stick with MGs and RGs but I did get some 00 HGs before, but not the 00 Gundam line (regular, Trans Am Raiser, 00 Raiser, 00 Condenser, etc).

Interesting to see that it had light piping clear pieces on an HG.

Hotlinking to Dalong still doesn't work. This is not the first time we told you that XD

Skye629 2013-11-19 21:27

Anyone has these MGs? I need personal feedback

MG Sword Impulse: (Suiton if you tell me to wait for the probably never coming RM, I WILL END YOU)

Uh, how long are the swords (give it in inches or centimeters plz)? Might consider the kit in the future but not sure if I got the space for swinging poses.......



MG Duel Gundam:

I'm becoming a bigger fan of the design (and I finally realized the colors reminded me of the G3, but with some nice orange highlights)

How good does it look with some of the AS armor on and some off? Im going for the right shoulder armor with the gun, leg armor/thrusters, and the full backpack add-on. Everything else off

~Destiny~ 2013-11-19 22:50

I only have the Sword from MG Force Impulse to judge, but if they're the same size, it's 9.8inches/24.7cm fully extended

Duel Sry for blurryness =/

Shinobi2013 2013-11-20 00:12

The Sword from Force Impulse can't adjust it's length to make it shorter and it's too long to carry on the back, they fixed it on the MG Sword Impulse by making it adjustable to make it longer or shorter.

DEAL WITH IT, atleast not as crappy as the mid 90s MG kits ans still look identical to Katoki Hajime's lineart like the newer EW kits so I can't see a reason why it is a bad mold.

Thanks for the stats!

And DAMN, I dont mind the blurriness, that setup looks REALLY GOOD, thanks man! Thats all I needed to confirm I want the kit now :D

So at its longest its about the same that Destiny posted?

Shinobi2013 2013-11-20 00:20

I believe it's the same height as Force Impulse' sword when it's extended.

Hmm, maybe wait for X Divider MG to be annouced. You did say you only collect MG kits from series besides UC.
Or how about Turn-A MG?

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dInjGGoSXq...0731-16809.jpg

THIS IS AWESOME, Biggest fuel tanks evah? And hooray for the weapon making an anime appearance (as an arm replacement lol). And are those....missile pods? Not too sure, I highly doubt they deploy funnels

Despite how unlikely it is, I would love a magazine or online exclusive add-on to the HGUC Kshatriya to make this version

Appel 2013-11-20 06:49

Yes, of course Bandai! Make the Kshatriya even bigger and take away one of the feet for even less stability to make the chances of this getting a MG even smaller! Brilliant! XD
