Although, as common with most Japanese practices, special edition 'accessories' are usually quite lackluster, so don't keep your hopes up :p

My guess? Transparant blue plastic pieces like the 1/144 has for the DRAGOON's to have a launch effect.

Some people are saying that it could be the retconned Wings of Light on Strike Freedom. But I think 20 bucks is too expensive for several pieces of transparent plastic. I'm guessing something bigger.

And I really hope Bandai does something about the gold parts on Strike Freedom. Gold plating for example.. that could explain the high price. Anything but the fugly gold colored plastic they used on the previous Strike Freedom kits.

Yeah, you tell that to the bastards at (BANDAI) Namco, who had me by the balls and forced me into a situation where I must purchase the collector's edition (willingly) of XENOSAGA II. For almost $250, I was under the impression that I had invested in something of unparalleled awesomeness (such as the first collector's edition), except what I received was the ugliest piece of made-in-Third World crap I have ever seen in my whole entire fragile life!~ What were they trying to do? Give me a heart attack!? I can't believe what they had done to KOS-MOS, ugh, the horror, THE HORROR. It was only then, did I truely comprehend the term: "hopelessness".

Before I get off on yet another tirade about the lack of KOS-MOS lovin', lets try to stay on topic by checking out this nifty DESTINY GUNDAM scratchbuilt... http://kirahoby.j-mx.com/x42s/gallery-2.html

Maybe for the limited edition is th elighting effects for the MG Strike Freedom like 1/60 ver? :D damn i think too hard already :D

Tak 2006-10-05 18:45

duotiga, just what IN THE NAME OF GODDESS are you trying to imply! I am horrified! Did you know, the 1/60 LIGHTING edition is amongst one of my most HATED Gundam kit productions? I cannot believe you even raised the subject matter to incite my sensitive ears... ugh, now I won't be able to sleep tonight, knowing that a nightmare looms... :help:

And I'm curious as to what the special option will be for Strike Freedom. For the extra 20 bucks, it better be something good. :heh:

ill agree the HG stargazer doesnt look as good as it should, i wish it were a HG or something =( oh well its still a sexy gundam tho lol

Looking for help getting some models into production...
 
I believe this is the most appropriate area to post this request for help.

I'm a Universal Century HG model lover and more of a fan of the kits than the show (which to me seems odd). I'm trying to find people interested in getting some conversion kits for the 1/144 HG GM, the 1/144 HG Gyan, and the 1/144 HG Gundam back into production. According to the site, they need at least ten orders before production with begin with a 4-5 month wait before the product will be shipped. You will need to find the base kits (GM, Gundam, & Gyan) first from some other site so you can convert them, but I'd look into buying those after confirmation that the conversion kits are being produced. Of course, if no one's interested, I'd love some information on whether these kits are worth the time and effort from this site or not. Never hurts to be too informed.

Kits I'm interested in getting produced:

The 1/144 GM II http://www.hobbyfan.com/product_info...a3328446499e05

The 1/144 GM III http://www.hobbyfan.com/product_info...a3328446499e05

The 1/144 GM Sniper II http://www.hobbyfan.com/product_info...a3328446499e05

The 1/144 GM Cannon http://www.hobbyfan.com/product_info...a3328446499e05

The 1/144 Giren's Ambition Gyan http://www.hobbyfan.com/product_info...a3328446499e05

And a 1/144 Perfect Gundam http://www.hobbyfan.com/product_info...Conversion+set


That's all I know.
Thanks for your time and any help!

Damn, really tempted to buy the MG SF now. The 1/100 SF just looks weird. Only plus was the "special parts" and that stand for it. :heh:

McChar 2006-10-05 21:02

are these bandai or garage kits?

M_Flores 2006-10-05 21:45

What are the chances of the 'special parts' actually being additional stands to mount the dragoons in action? lol... I wouldn't mind that actually. Plus the wings of light plastic parts to go along with it would be nice too.

kct 2006-10-05 22:11

Those are (most likely) garage conversion kits.

It's only green.

wavehawk 2006-10-06 05:28

I'm a bit dissapointed. The GM Striker doesn't look as cool as I thought it would.

(Sheepishly goes off to pay off the bet he had with other Gundam fans)

Frm Gunota

Looking at the bottom of the picture of the MG Strike Freedom, the SOVer. will have the original MG Freedom kit and option parts and decals to make the MG SF...... Looks like I'll have to wait for the second wave of kits... :(

The Freedom on the cover of the Limited Edition is just a implication of how the packaging will look like. It you bother to read the fine prints right at the bottom, they clearly state that the real thing will look quite different.

Thanks for the info Makube, :) With myself, not being able to read Japanese, I only had the picture to rely on. Now with that being said, I wonder what the option parts may be. For over, 7000y those parts better be gold plated ;)



(**offtopic**.....BTW..... MakubeX2 wasn't it you who had the avy from Shaolin Soccer? That scene was hilarious)

LightningZERO 2006-10-06 10:02

I just bought Crossbone Gundam Ver. Ka and there's some Ver Ka. kits below the box. Except Wing Gundam, all of the Ver. Kas don't look much different from the normal version. Anyone call tell me what's the differences?

Those pictures are too small to Katoki's redesigns any justice.

These are most, if not all of the redesigns, he did.
