Can anyone help me here?

I just got a W-Gundam Zero Custom "SPECIAL OPERATION TYPE" 1/100 HG not long ago as a gift. I originally wanted a MG WingZero but the person who gave it to me probably did a mistake :heh: .

The W-Zero is almost the same as a regular 1/100 Wzero Custom. There is a difference though. Instead of having white wings and parts, my W-Zero has SILVER wings and all the white has also been replaced by silver. There is not a trace of white anywhere. Also, I think the Gundam has a bit more detail because my cousin used to own a W-Zero 1/100 Custom and it looked kind of dull :D (it's broken now, he replaced it with 1/144 HG Destiny, Freedom, Strike Freedom, and Justice ;)).

Now I have a question concerning the rarity of this "Special" Gundam Wing. I have been unable to find it in ANY online Gundam shop so far and searched Google to no avail. I could only find a handful of BOX ART images. The Gundam is real, as it has the "BANDAI" logo and the parts inside are of high quality. There is also the standard instruction manual with the paint jobs and biography. Is this Gundam rare or am I just not looking hard enough? It cost the gifter about $27 CDN (bought from HK and converted to CDN). Is it "rare" and did I get ripped off?

I'm currently working on it right now. So far, I got the arms, legs, and weapons ready. I'll put pictures up once I'm finished. Thanks!

Anyone tried shipping using "Surface" from Japan ?
Am thinking about shipping the HGUC Dendrobium alone using surface to save 60USD+ insted of EMS ... not sure if its safe to use surface or not ...

I really don't think Surface shipping is good...I'd rather just stick to SAL instead. SAL is still a little cheaper than EMS.

OmegaZEROCustom 2006-06-11 23:28

If it's SAL, or Surface Air Lift, it's fine. Takes a bit longer, but I usually have anything I have shipped SAL within 3 weeks tops. If it's plain old Surface, it could take 6 months to even ship out of Japan because it is piled into cargo containers, and when the containers fill up, they get shipped out. I once had a friend doing a semester of school in Japan and she shipped me and my friends a box one week after she got there. She got back 5 months later and we still didn't have the box. 3 weeks after she returned, it arrived in my mailbox.

Now are they best selling because of those discounts or before?

Arrrghh!!!
 
I can't put up my 1/100 HG WingZero!! THE STUPID WINGS ARE TOO HEAVY!!

HELP!! :heh:

tritoch 2006-06-13 00:05

Use some nylon and tie it to the wings and then tie it on the wall for support or make a stand and glue that thing to newly built stand.

Fafnir 2006-06-13 19:28

Put it up against a wall.

kct 2006-06-13 19:32

Add something to support them :P.

HELP!! :heh:

Both the 1/100 HG Wing Zero, Wing Zero Custom and the DS Custom have this problem. You can follow what was suggested above, or for something more radical you can try to injuct mixed putty into the legs to give a firmer base. The "Wings" will be more difficult, some like to apply a layer of cement or super glue to make it stiffer (hence able to maintain it's pose). Or for a quick fix try blue-tac.

ScytheBlade 2006-06-14 02:03

Thanks for the suggestions. Are there any more?

For some odd reason my cousin managed to balance his WingZero perfectly with no editing. It actually STOOD STRAIGHT without leaning on the wings! My DeathScythe is perfectly straight, too.

aikming 2006-06-14 03:07

That's why I bought MG Wing zero custom after I acquired HG Wing zero custome. You will be amazed by the details and balancing features of MG grade. PG should be even better but I heard some poeple saying that the feathers kept falling loose for PG grade.
