Here is something I have wondered about for some time yet, and would like some opinions on.

Based on whatever experiences with the subject matter you have had, is it "worth it" (for whatever reasons, excepting economic) to own Gunpla of an MS in various scales?

Well, I like Mobile Armor, and I really like the Mobile Suit's that transform into Mobile Armor. So I generally buy those kinds. Let's see, so far, the only family line I currently have is 1/144 Buster Gundam and 1/100. My Brother has the 1/100 MG Freedom, and I have the 1/144. My Brother has the PG Strike, I have....3 1/144's :heh:

But since most of the models that transform are 1/144 size, I have alot of those (Raider, Forbidden, Saviour, etc...) But the big guys I have are MG Nu Gundam, MKII v2, and some others too lazy to name :heh:

But yeah, I find it hard which ones to play with if I have too much of the same lol....so, to me, it's worth it only if you have alot of money and if your a fan of the particular suit in question. I don't mind worth #1, but worth #2 is hard, especially if your favorites are only in a certain scale, ie Raider Gundam only in 1/144 scale :(

I only buy MG 1/100 if I can though bought few PG over the years...
it's been a long time since I worked with 1/144...

Yes, its listed on HLJ as a prerelease sale.


It requires cement and painting tho, its not a snap together model



But ogd damn I do want one, To.


Hildolfr was the most awesomest thing in the history of Gundam.

dj898 2006-01-24 23:55

has anyone built 1/100 scale flying armour resin kit w/ LED from HK seller?
I got hold of one recently and was quite impressive with the details - though won't have time to build it right away. sad.gif
In the mean time is there anything I should be aware of - any pitfall or tricky bits?

TIA

I want to purchase a Zaku 2 perfect grade, but I also want to purchase the Zeta perfect grade.

Which do you guys thing should I get?


JanthraX^ 2006-01-26 13:59

I think zeta becuase i think it looks quite streamlined as it can turn into a fighter too,

HOWEVER

i have never had any experince with PG models before

Sety 2006-01-26 13:59

Zaku 2.........the Zeta PG sucks, it falls apart quite easily and the transformation isn't very good.......the Zeta ver 2.0 is decent though and a massive improvement but the Zeta Plus series are still better.

dj898 2006-01-26 18:43

but PG Zeta has more lighting gimmick than any other PG OOTB... :p

For $700, you've got to be a celebrity buying something of that size :uhoh:

The description says it's the HG Destiny Gundam kit, no scale reference that I noticed. The auction closed with the winning bid just over $800. >.>;

Kingturtle2006 2006-01-26 20:04

Thanks for the info people, I was about to buy the Zeta..

Nesty 2006-01-26 23:03

how much u paying for it kturtle?

damnn, 800 dollars for that destiny gundam.... just dam...

dj898 2006-01-26 23:07

wow!
for $800 I'd commission 1/100 MG conversion kit to one of professional modellers... O_O

DarkWarrior 2006-01-26 23:15

Heh $800.. not really surprising, since there are people out there who have huge amounts of cash they can just throw around. And it must be 1/144, since 1/100s aren't officially considered HG.

Anyways, I'm curious about the quality of Zeta 2.0. Dalong.net gave it a 98, but that really doesn't help since I can't read anything. I haven't even touched mine yet since I intend to fully paint it. So the earliest I'll start is spring.. no way I'm going to even attempt to paint in below freezing weather.

dj898 2006-01-27 00:01

from what I heard ver 2.0 has issues with the joint and the feet doesn't sit flush on the surface due to the design of its heel...

theOtherGuy 2006-01-27 04:01

mmm, isn't that sexy.

Wow...the S.Freedom's blue transparent thingies are really flimsy or is it suppose to be bendable: http://www.geocities.jp/theotur97/li...tfreereb16.JPG

I have to say though, the work on SD Gundam SEED Destiny kits look great.

And guys, what is this: http://www.geocities.jp/theotur97/li...P334210041.JPG from http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/theotur97
