The hip joints, the tigh armor, shoulder armor and back skirt are new.

Aesthetics aside, RII is better, just for the slightly better hip joints

Does RII come with any other weapon besides the green GN sword?

All the normal Exia weapons last I checked minus the original GN Sword

EDIT: Actually seems to come with everything minus the purple rubber cables, even has the old GN Sword blade

The forearms and legs are changed as well

Just check out Dalong for picture comparisons between the normal HG Exia and the R22

That's great. Thanks.

- Small is better. In UC Gundam lore, they made sense--technology became more advanced and stuff became smaller, so the F91 and Victory Gundam MS were smaller than a OYW or Zeta-era MS (and LOTS smaller than CCA or Unicorn MS), but had twice or three times the power output. The smaller size also made for some interestign matchups--The Gundam F91 movie showed a bit of this, and some of the Formula/Crossbone-era Gundam manga pointed it out in a few scenes as well where the 'little guys' beat the stuffing out of older and bigger MS.

I was annoyed as hell when they decided not to continue with that line of thought and go back to 18-meters-plus sized MS in later series.

I just wish Bandai would make this guy. My scratchbuild of it is...underwhelming.

Oh, what he's ACTUALLY supposed to look like:
https://fbcdn-photos-e-a.akamaihd.ne...08288847_a.jpg

Gundam F90. On-record as the smallest MS to be called a Gundam (14.8 meters tall). Testebed for a lot of new technologies, predecessor to the Gundam F91, and it's Hardpoijnt system was later adopted by the Victory Gundam (and predates the Strike Gundam's Striker pack gimmick)

A guy in Japan is doing a much better job of it than I am:

Okay so I'm trying to strip the plated parts off of the 1/144 gold frame amatsu. Anyone know if window washer will damage poly caps?

wavehawk 2014-03-15 23:03

I'd suggest you remove the polycaps and everything before trying to strip the plating.

And be prepared for it to take awhile. Bleach overnight is best, but you might need to wash the kit and immerse it a couple more times until the entire thing is black. Personally, I've done this to a gold-plated Shining Gundam (The old 1990's version), and found that if you leave it too long the plastic may become brittle (I alternated between Elco paint stripper and bleach). Ended up using glue on the kit to bond the parts and coat it with primer before painting.

Skye629 2014-03-16 00:49

Judging from my Sazabi's arm, we can sand the upper arm down a bit, but I dont think it will be to the extent that would change it enough, this is partly due to the "inner frame" part of the arm taking up some of that bulk as well

Im just gonna wait and see if anyone has success sanding it down





And does anyone know what the difference between normal kits and the GFT versions are? For example the HGUC Nu Gundam ver. GFT?

ZeroXSEED 2014-03-16 01:08

Katoki workout?

Some have additional stickers & decals, some have additional display-stand, some have different colors or finishing/coating. A GFT kit can have just one extra feature or a combination of two (or three of them) in one kit. For HGUC Nu Gundam GFT’s case, I think it’s a combination between additional decals and different coating. The GFT one looks pearl-y.

If you don’t have any HG Nu yet, I personally suggest to pick up HG Nu Heavy Weapon System. It’s a great kit. It has Nu and all of its traditional weapons plus additional armor and bigger weapons which are fun to play with. Of course, it will give you the choice to go in either mode: normal or HWS. They usually charged extra for HG Nu GFT anyway, so why not get the one with more accessories.

ZeroXSEED 2014-03-16 08:15

GFT is a lot more expensive trust me

Seconded HWS for great justice!

Also, I wish Bandai release Speed Mode cloak, but for a moment sheet of plastic should be fine :p

If we have to look at another point of view, size if everything. There's some people that like KMF-small MSes, there's some people that like huge walking behemoths.

After all these years you still like the F90, eh? Seen a bunch of 1/100s of it for sale at a local shop for cheap. The price of a new HGCE Strike cheap. Could be useful for some measure of kitbashing, that guy used the 1/100 for the job. Have you tried using an MG F91 or something instead?

Spoiler for Talking about the HGCE Strike:

Wild Goose 2014-03-17 00:54

Huh, the HGUC Nu Gundam HWS is on sale and the price isn't that much different from the HGUC Nu Gundam. And if the HWS parts can be stripped away to form a standard Nu, I might as well get that kit...

What do you use? Modeling paint or gundam markers? <.<

..it actually looks better with the paint and all applied, as opposed to normal.

Modeling paint. There's actually a "Gundam Color" series by Gunze, they came in shades of common MS colors.
