GP-02A: It's the level of older MGs which is made of not-so-good posability. The only good thing about it is that it looks sort of awesome.

FAZZ: Assuming you are talking about the Gundam Sentinel version (aka grey + white instead of traditional Gundam colours), it is a rather complex kit (a lot of stuff), with some of the posability hindered by the armor system itself. Despite the canon version is implied to be untransformable, this one can transform into the G-Fortress like the ZZ Gundam, but the armor have to be removed first. Plus points is that it is the best proportioned (and stable) of the ZZs, hence it can stand without really falling.

IWSP: The newest kit of the ones you have in mind, it is basically a Strike Gundam with the IWSP. IMHO it was quite good, but of course, being the newest out of the lot helps (although the original MG Strike Gundam was released in 2003). Plenty of stuff to play with, and if you have a MG Strike Rouge (which I think you don't have), you can toy with it.

Sazabi: One word: large. Quite complicated by the looks of it. Being one of the largest MGs (Perfect Zeong exceeds that), it commands quite a price.

Well, clicking the links will allow you to judge by yourself. And yes, anyone is free to correct me. IMHO the IWSP would be the simplest of the lot, but I would suggest a Aile Strike if you are just starting out on MGs (not to say that you can't do a more complecated kit, since I myself started out on a Zeta Plus, in other words something more complicated >.>).

Well the iwsp will have the best mobility and posablity cuz its one of the latest frame designs. The sazabi and the Gp02 r the oldest of the 4 u mentioned and are bulky and kinda stiff but look awsome the have the most parts. the fazz is a bit annoying wit its hyper mega cannon its off balences teh model making it a pain to pose. The Gp02 is an awsome kit it has issuses holding its shield cuz its so damn heavy and its arm design aint so great at all. The kit itself look just amazing when its done tho its gimicks outweigh its problems. If u want a really nice first mastergrade kit that will be nice i would go wit the iwsp first but deff get the rest along the way they r worth it.

ty. i had to add grey to the waist cause in low lighting it didnt show anything. i actauly spent 4hrs to add purple. 1st shot was a bit pink but a little grey paint did the trick to make it purple (if u used a bright light to loo at it then you'll see the grey)

Also, out of the 4, IWSP could be the cheapest.

Looks big.

DarkWarrior 2006-12-20 23:51

Wow, that box is almost PG size.. shipping is definitely going to suck, especially since you can't fit it in a SAL SP.

And correct me if I'm wrong here, but the Full Burst version includes two stands, and two internal frames? Talk about excess.. I hope I'm wrong though.

MakubeX2 2006-12-21 00:17

The box is the same as those used for the 1/60 SF and those PG kits.

And yes, it had been known for a while now that the Full Burst release included the normal internal frame along with the gold plated ones. And they also include the action base along with the normal stand.

A case of redundancy when it's obvious that those who choose to get the Full Burst are aiming for the gold plating and the action base.

PS :-
Bandai is obviously digging at something here with the Gunplan A booklet.....

This might be a stupid question, but is that kit yours? I was wondering how you got one so quickly - the release date was just today?

This is not mine. Being an ardent UC Facist, I refuse to buy any Freedom/Strike Freedom models which, to me, is the symbol of the degradation of Gudam. I'll be saving up for the MG Hi-Nu instead.

And as to how one manage to snatch the kit fast, well, we are in the Internet and there are people residing in East Asia here. You might also like to know that there are merchants who have recieve the kit 2-3 days earlier and some of them are profit driven enough to make an unauthorise early release.

Feels kinda ironic that the one who always brings us updates on this kit (thanks so much for that, btw) is actually one of the biggest flagship Freedom-haters, bwahaha...

kct 2006-12-21 05:08

Whatever (I care not about all the hate and such), but I'll be checking the shops here to see whether they have it or not.

What a waste of money.. Bandai could've cut down on the cost and passed the savings on to consumers if they removed those two things.

And speaking of MG Hi-Nu, it's apparently due out this February with a pricetag of 7,350 yen according to Gunota. I love the Hi-Nu, but I'm going to wait until I see some prototypes before making a decision. I don't want to waste money on a "thin" Hi-Nu as people have been calling it.

It's looks good from a different angle. And no, no price tag yet.

dodgethis_sg 2006-12-21 06:48

IS DIS SUM CRAPPILY REDESIGNED MASTER GRADE HI-NU PROTOTYPE?

In the words of Darth Vader, DO NOT WANT.

LoweGear 2006-12-21 06:58

According to Gunota, Hi-Nu retails for 7,350 yen.

And it looks better than the lineart suggests at least.

MakubeX2 2006-12-21 07:01

I see where Gunota gets their release dates and price now :-

It looks good in this scan.

DarkWarrior 2006-12-21 10:02

Certainly looks better than the lineart, but I don't like the various changes they've made.. like the color change of the fin funnels.

And where the hell did this GP02 come from? Never seen that design before, although it looks interesting.
