Will there ever be a second chance? I don't know how Bandai operates so could someone else inform me? (then there's hope for the overwhelming demand of these special parts to be mass-produced!)

You could probably try E-bay? (dunno if its reliable, but they usually have first edition kits there?)
Why, man? Has it stopped being ordered from everywhere else?

I probly missed it, but how much will the stand cost?

Derringer 2006-11-09 21:13

440 yen on rainbow ten

DarkWarrior 2006-11-09 22:09

Has a release date for the stand been announced yet? I'm definitely getting at least 5, probably more.. about time Bandai released a display stand.

Here in Singapore almost every retailer has already closed preorders for the MG Strike Freedom SP due to overwhelming demand. I didnt realise we had so many Kira fanboys...

BTW, I picked this up recently. I know it isnt a Gundam model kit, but since the anime loves to parody MSG with their battle suits and whatnot, i thought this might be interesting...

Behold...the Keroro Mecha!!!

I've always wanted those keroro models...are they complicated and much paint work?...I wanna get the whole series of Keroro models...lol

Axis 2006-11-10 08:14

I'm.. kinda like a beginner on this stuff, and I kinda need some advice on painting and costum building/costumization and stuff like that. Any sort of help would be appreciated. :)

If that's the case, then wouldn't that be quite favourable for Bandai? I guess there is hope for a second release for those special parts that I have missed the first time around. Haha, Kira fanboys or not -- still a damn good model. :heh:

duotiga 2006-11-10 09:51

i must say the SP options is too good not to miss it...:heh: Btw i am more of Athrun fan than kira:eyespin:

SNT1 2006-11-10 13:46

HLJ also closed the preorders on S-F.

Oh well. I guess more UC MG are belong to me :D 1 more of X-bone and F-91 MGs coming up!

DarkWarrior 2006-11-10 14:08

I guess there's a reason why Strike Freedom always tops the popularity polls.. the demand seems to be pretty damn high.

And the standard version of Strike Freedom makes me shudder.. I mean, look at the ugly gold plastic. :\ Gold plated FTW!

They aren't really complicated. If u can handle a SD Gundam model kit, the Keroro Gunso models shouldn't be a problem. They also require the same amount of paint work that SDs require, which is quite abit, although most parts that need coloring have stickers for them

The instructions are also very simple and from what i see from them are catered for Japanese elementary school kids. The biggest draw however is they are dirt cheap, since for the price of a SD u get the Keroro Mecha which is around the size of an average 1/144 HG

But how would the gold plating be done :confused: ? Because the chrome gold plastic I've seen in other kits is very soft & flimsy, not like the usual solid plastic they use to mould parts with.

Tak 2006-11-10 21:15

Woot, finally got my HG Saviour, plus all the colorful ZAKUs (Rey, Heine & Luna). I hate to say this, but there is something about CE Zakus that look far more professional than hero Gundams...

believe me, even a can of gold paint sprayed onto the 'ugly gold plastic' will look hella lot better than the gold plated pieces.

- As long as they're not too deep, yes. It would help if you used a finer grade of sandpaper to 'finish' what you originally sanded, and cleaned it up afterwards. Remember, it's a clear dull coat, so while it will cover up a few blemishes and scars, really bad ones will still show up.

Otherwise, I suggest using a finer sandpaper or go ahead and paint them.

omg...that crap gold again?! I am definitely getting the first edition one when it goes on sale in HK. Australia inflates gundams to at least 1.5x the normal price!

@Soran, I've never built SDs, but I've built MGs...so it should be easy enough..I am assuming they are on the same difficulty as the NG for Seed? My friend bought me 15 in one go thinking that it was a bargain.

I couldn't understand why they couldn't use the gold from Akatsuki or Hyaku Shiki - is it too expensive to mass-produce or something?

duotiga 2006-11-11 04:34

cutting cost perhaps?? though i also wish the gold to be chrome also.....
