The 1/144 HG Zaku warrior/Phantom is a very good kit. It's better then the Gouf Ignited In my opinion. Requires a bit more paint then a 1/100 HG, but nothing dramatical. Biggest setback is that the shield spikes are less pointy then the 1/100 HG (there are convertion kits but expensive)

Cool combo is the 1/144 HG Dearka Blaze Zaku phantom with the cerberus backpack.

From what i've seen then, it sold quite well, first wave of all 1/144 hg and 1/100 hg were always sold out in a couple of days. But if that meets exspectations is unshure. You can set exspectations so high that it will always be a failure in your eyes.

Also gundam has so much merchandise (not only gunpla, but books, art, figures, statues, bags, etc......) that it's hard to judge it just by the gunpla.

Also when something is succesful companies tend to imagine that any successor will always do better, they never anticipate any downfall, let alone they take into account economic crisis. But sales are not a standard to which one should judge quality.

Personaly i'm a big fan of seed destiny even if it's a failure to some.

I thought that in Bandai's view, Gunpla sales have top priority over everything else (show ratings, DVD sales, merchandise).

You think it's a good idea to get:

MG Aile Strike RM Ver. x4
Launcher & Sword pack RM Ver. x1

I'm considering to display the Strike, Aile Strike, Sword Strike, and Launcher Strike..

And then I'm gonna hope for the IWSP Strike, Aile Strike Rouge, Freedom, and Strike Freedom get a MG RM Ver. release.

Gotta love that gold color for the cables/hoses on the shoulders, neck and knees. Still, Iíd prefer if you use a lighter color for the purple just like the stickers, but thatís just me. Yeah, the wings still look lame but thatís the kitís fault, not yours XD. Overall, good job ^^.

I'll give it another lick of the silver. Thanks for the feedback. :)

I see. Well I'm leaning more towards the Goufs actually. :heh: How are they inferior to the Zakus? Not a fan of the Blaze Zaku Phantoms, I prefer the Gunner Zaku Warriors.

Yeah right?...No wait. On second thought, yes. Best idea ever. Do it suiton. You do that. Buy 4 Aile Strikes RMs. And then pose all of them like you said. And pics, or it DIDN'T HAPPEN. While you're at it, take a picture of the extra 3 Aile packs you'll have sitting there.

And then complain later about your lack of money.

And then post your wishlist again like you were sitting in Santa's lap all year round.

And then tell us all again about how you wish to save money.

Just leave it guys. It's not that unusual how those who think they have limited amount of money become obsessed on where to spend them to.

The armed armored de parts makes the shield very heavy

Anyway, I decided not to get into the Seed/Seed Destiny line of MG's. I spent the last few weeks watching through Seed and Seed Destiny and I realized I didn't like it much at all.

So I'll be sticking to 00, Wing EW, and Age for my MG needs.

Honestly I don't think he knows what he is talking about cause he did post that he didn't want to do anything with SEED / Destiny.

I bought two shields. When I get around doing my FA unicorn, I wanted to see how it would look with both shields on both of his arms.

Oh my, I have not thought about that yet :O Although, since my own FA Unicorn is already having problems with the weight I don't think this is gonna work very well^^

duotiga 2013-04-21 17:52

I would suggest put it behind the backpack as to on its arms itself for the armed armor de for FA Unicorn

Ok I am just collecting the rest of my jaw from the ground, cause after seeing the MG Jesta. All I can say is WOW!!! I believe its probably the best kit for the year. I have one MG Jesta on the way but I think I'm going to get two, just to make the tri-stars. I will wait until the cannon comes out, Bandai can milk my money for this kit.

Funny cause I waited all this time for the MG Jesta since the HG's release thinking I'll get that instead but then the cannon comes and then I think I'll wait for that instead:p
Plus the fact that the Jesta is a tad on the expensive for what you get imo.
But then I see all the stuff on the MG Jesta and I think "yea I def gotta get me one".
It really does just look that great.
So now I'm def be getting a Normal and Cannon(if it gets released), just a question of when I can get money for them:uhoh:

4000 yen, yeah a tad expensive. But well worth the money. From what I've seen on the runners on the MG Jesta, there is definitely going to be Cannon coming.. I do hope I'm right but I could be wrong about it..
