Got it the day it came out (first gundam I ever laid eyes on, thanks to my dad ^^)

Great kit, only a few areas where you need minor touch ups

Most of the pieces fit very well together, there are 1 or 2 loose pieces on mine which were easily fixed with superglue

The shield can be a bit annoying sometimes but a little fiddling and its all good

Everything is held well, especially the rifle due to the "claws" on the forearm locking it in

As for transformation all you need to do is do it once to remember and get it down, I have not built other transforming MG kits so I cant say how well it is but from what I heard its alot better than Zeta and D+ say due to its simplistic nature

This Christmas is going to be glorious: I just picked up the MG Nu Gundam Ver Ka :D From what I've seen of it so far, it's a highly detailed model that puts even the 00 line of MGs to shame and has a sick inner frame, but it's got loose funnels and the manipulators cannot seem to hold the weapons steady. The funnels won't be a problem if I keep them posed on that special stand, and it sounds like I can position the hands so that the beam rifle is steady...

Simple fix on the manipulators.. just put some glue in the pc socket, let it stand for a couple of secends and then start moving it.. This will create friction so that it stiffens the joint. I am disappointed on the funnels.. I can see why they did it that way, just so you can lower or raise on how you wanted the funnels. But they should of made the groove deeper or rather make them snap together tighter.

By the way my MG Nu Gundam Ver.Ka just came into day.

You bet I am! :D

Awesome illustration is awesome. Taking the battle at Antarctica (or is it Arctic?) for the box art is a good decision. My MG Heavyarms is ready to be posed opposing it.

Of all the recent Master Grade boxarts this decade, that has got to be the most badass I've ever seen :love:

I'm sold by the boxart too =x

suiton629 2012-12-21 10:33

I like that whole pencil style look.
CG box arts are nice but there's something really amazing about this new box art for MG
TALLGEESE EW.

I know it will still happen, but I'm starting to really wonder.

The way that Glory is going and the fact we see Wing Gundam in Tallgeese's boxart despite it being Antartica really does leave me wondering how they are going to get Heavyarms into that fight.

Boxart is amazing though. Easily the best Wing has had outside of Epyon EW.

I just hope that we get a remastered version of the Wing EW and Wing Zero EW in MG for Glory of the Defeated...

In the mean time, I am in the process of looking at getting MG Wing Gundam (TV) and then I hope we get MG Wing Gundam Zero (TV)...

I havenít read the later chapters of Glory of Losers for a while now, but in the anime, arenít both Wing and Heavyarms indeed in Antarctica? Heavyarms (Heero) is having a duel with Tallgeese while Wing (Trowa) is acting as a lookout for incoming OZ army. Does the manga took different approach?

Appel 2012-12-21 15:10

Not bad! Not a huge fan of that suit but the boxart does look awesome!

First major story change occured so I will put it in a spoiler just encase given this isn't the thread for it.

Spoiler:


Last I will bring it up though, badass boxart is badass. Not only that but if they can do that for TG1, TG2 could be even more glorious. I truly can't wait to get all 3 lined up together.

Glue, putty, screws and brasspipes!

Assess the damage and repair it as you see fit honestly, it's a learning process, can you glue it into a fixed position? good. If not, a drill, brasspipe and putty can do wonders.

Looks difficult to fix

So I just got a HGUC Sazabi as a Christmas present. I read around on the Internet somewhere that Prime92 used the runners to use as "stands" to have the Sazabi's funnels launch from its pods but I can't seem to find that video. Did it get deleted, or does someone have the link to the particular video for that? Thanks!

Its one of her really old vids

Basically what she did was cut away segments from the clear yellow trees (in particular the curved parts on the corners) and trimmed the ends down so they were pegs that fitted into the ends of the funnels and the pack



On another topic it seems the Bandai effed up with the HGUC Rozen Zulu, the dark purple is way too friggin dark =_____=

well thanks for the suggestion, but what kind of glue would be best?

FalsePrime 2012-12-22 17:52

Just saw Tallgeese decaled for the first time, must sayI'm pretty shocked at the shield. I didn't expect the eagle to be nearly as small as it is.

The rest of the decal scheme seems to blend with the suit more then anything so it really looks like one of the suits that can easily go without and not be a big deal.

I see. I'll try digging some more. Does the runner bend on its own, or do I have to do something to it, like put it in hot water or something?

Sigh, unfortunately so. Why couldn't they have stuck with the purple used for the AGE-3 Fortress? Looks like it's time for me to learn how to paint properly. :heh:

EDIT: Managed to get a RD Nu Gundam plus a set of 5 Tamashii stages for SGD$50, a really good deal. Question: Do Tamashii stages work with HG kits?

Honestly, any brand that works well on plastic, i have a brand here called karlsons universalklister(Swedish though) that works really well, it has a red donkey screaming on it.

Then again, any superglue that works on plastic should do the trick, if you are unsure that it does, glue some sprues together to check if you like the effect.

Hobby cement would be the best choice as it welds the plastic pieces together which creates a very secure bond unlike superglue. But you must be careful not to use it or accidentally apply it on moving parts unless you want those joints to be permanently welded into place.

The "bent" parts I referred to were the curved corner sections of the tree which the clear yellow was on, Im not too sure how well it would bend after being soaked in hot water (or if it will at all)

Another option is to use the effect parts for the funnels from the HGUC Jagd Doga's (both versions have 3 I believe)

As I've been doing my HGUC Sinanju yesterday, I lost a yellow part. But I found it before the end of the day. While today, I was building my MG Sinanju, finally, when I lost yet another yellow part. Sadly, unfortunately, I still can't find it. No luck at all! So guys, what are your ways to find a missing part?

I tried backtracking, it snapped and flew. It didn't make a sound because of couple of reasons. One, it could be so light, maybe, it would'nt make any sound or second is that it fell on my bed, a cloth or a material that it wouldn't make a sound. I even tried cleaning my room, which is rare. Last time I did that is 3 years ago. But still, got no luck. So, probably you guys can help me? T_T

keep it clear where you work so you'll find something if it flies away ;)

had a similar thing happen when i built my NG 1/100 I-Justice, the V-fin flew away and somehow landed inside one of the big chest pieces on the A-sprue, i giggled a bit when i found it, but i'm sure it'll show up if you look hard enough :)

When the same thing happened to me (lost a very tiny part, even smaller than V-fin), I checked every surface in my room that can be a possible landing spot for the part that flew (even the most unlikely place). When that didnít work, I cleaned my room by first getting rid of every tiny dirt from my desk, bed, etc to the floor. Once that is done, I swept my room thoroughly and pile all the rubbish in one place. After that, I check through the pile, and voila, I found it. If youíre lucky, youíll find that missing part during the cleaning process.

I also agree with Znozzy that you should keep your workplace clear before cutting or assembling gunpla parts to make it easier for finding missing parts.

Sometimes not looking is the key, fate have a weird way of turning up things u are missing when you are not looking for it

Yes, that's exactly what I was doing right now. I just swapped the yellow part from the back of the arms into the front. The front gets noticed most of the time so I guess that'll do for the mean time.

Looks like more weapon systems I need to get, no.4 is looking best yet.

There's that giant rifle and sword from Kotobukiya to get as well

So many things to get!!

How come we don't have any MG's from Gundam X?
Lately, I've been in the mood to watch Gundam X again, and thought it would be cool to see X, X Divider, and Double X getting an MG release...

I love the Duel! Makes we want to build my own MG Duel. Always thought Duel should have been the main protagonist enemy suit aposed to the strike instead of the Aegis.

We don't have MGs yet because X tanked. And since the whole Gundam anime franchise is essentially nothing but an extremely glorified toy commercial they didn't make a lot of kits for it yet.
The same thing essentially happened with AGE as well. The only difference is that they pretty much released the kits and the show in tandem. That is why we got a MASSIVE amount of HGs and MGs in the beginning but then the pace at which they released the kits slowed down significantly.

However, fans have been demanding MG X kits for quite some time now! So I'm sure that we will get them sooner or later.
We still need a MG V2 as well...

Destined_Fate 2012-12-26 10:04

Well, time heals all wounds and Gundam X getting into Super Robot Wars Z series has really helped make it very popular with the new generation that have never even seen the anime.

I want Ennil's Jenice Custom.

Well I guess that makes sense. But again, I've been rewatching Gundam X lately and really enjoying it a lot more.

I mean is it too much to ask for like X, X Divider, and Double X in MG? Maybe we'll see them in 2013. But Bandai also needs to finish up Age and 00 MG's as well. Wing.. I hope to see a Wing Gundam Zero (TV) and an updated Wing Zero Custom MG's later..

I'm just a bit concerned that so much emphasis is being put into Seed and Seed Destiny as well as UC these days. I mean Seed and Seed Destiny are great and all, but I think many of the Gundam fans outside of Japan started off with Wing, and then from there got really into Gundam with 00 like I did. Then Age came along, but in between there, I'm sure many of us checked out other series like G Gundam and Gundam X.

My rating is like this..

Gundam 00 > Gundam Age > Gundam Wing > Gundam X > G Gundam

I guess that's true that through time, things will get better. Being included into Super Robot Wars Z isn't such a big deal since things like Gundam Seed and now Gundam Seed Destiny is getting an HD Remaster TV airing followed by BluRay releases and "remastered" kits.

I'm just curious as to what that Glory of the Defeated thing is for Gundam Wing. I really really hope that means we'll see MG's like:

Wing Gundam Zero (TV)
Wing Gundam Zero (Endless Waltz Remaster)
Nataku
Heavyarms Custom
Sandrock Custom

And then there's Age that has a huge rush of kits. But mostly they were variations. The Gransa getting an HG release means that we could see a MG release of it later, or maybe get Exia R2 situation where the best we get is HG.. >_<

From a marketing perspective overseas profit is probably not as much as in japan

And as Unicorn and DESTINY is airing they're gonna strike while the iron is hot, so it makes sense they're focusing on those

As for the X, Wing, and 00 kits I'm with you though for wanting new MG releases

As for X imo they can wrap up the MG line with 2.5 kits in 3 months and call it quits while making fans happy (An X, then a small add on Divider pack like the Vbuster, then a DX)
