Sadly, no; they're just your regular 1/100. They are fairly detailed, though, compared to older No-Grade 1/100 models.

Is there anything I can do about loose joints on my model kits? Some of my older models have loose joints and I can't pose them right. Heavyarms Custom, for example, can't hold up his gatling guns.

I would personally like to see a GN-X be released.

I don't want to sound like a noob or anything, but what does HG mean? I want to start buying models but I really have no clue what most of you guys are talking about.

It means "High Grade" opposed to the other 1/144 FG or "First Grade" Because they have more parts and better detail with color than the first grades.

Gunpla usually have 1/144, 1/100 and 1/60 scale

1/144:
FG - First Grade - not much paint job done on them, really easy to assemble (under 10 USD)
HG - High Grade - more detailed, more paint job done more parts than FG (around 15 USD, expensive ones are 40 max )

1/100:
MG - Master Grade - much more detailed than HG, has it's own skeleton, cockpit. (usually above 40 USD, some of them are close or over 100 Hi-Nu/Sazani/EX)
1/100 - larger version of High Grade, got a bit more parts than HG (above 20 USD)

1/60:
PG - Perfect Grade - never built PG myself, but from what i've seen it is much much more detailed than MG, some of them came with internal LEDs. (over 100 USD)
1/60 - larger version of MG

Thanks. Much appreciated. If I have any more questions I'll pm you.

I've had the 1/100 Freedom Gundam kit sitting in its box in my closet for 4 years now, and the other night I finally decide to put it together, and notice it says I need an X-acto or cutters which I don't have DOH! :)

Hopefully it's not another 4 years for me to buy one to do it now ;D

lol, i always use X-acto knife for gunpla, other than when I was 10, i used to twist parts off or use a pair of normal thick edged scissor :P I am just curious, which tools did u ususally use?

LightningZERO 2008-03-12 03:39

Ouch, now I don't know which GN Arms I should be getting :heh:

Subarunyon 2008-03-12 03:53

You can see the Astraea pic here (and the link provided) =) rather cool imo but I'm not planning to get the 1/100s, dont have the space =x

I've never made one before, I only bought that one :) None of the other mobile suits in SEED interested me very much besides the original Freedom Gundam. Didn't care for the 2nd Freedom in Destiny, and AFAIK they never made a model for the Dom in Destiny, which is the only other one I would have wanted :( Is it bc it's identical to the Dom from UC?

I had just heard that the non-MG/PG ones could be snapped together. Or do I need glue for the 1/100?

For 00 so far I like the Flag and Exia, but don't really care for any of the others atm.

yeah actually they did make a 1/144 destiny Dom and its pretty cool if i do say so myself. Its not identical. somethings are different.

check it out http://www.dalong.net/review/seed.htm

you dont need glue for any kit unless you make a mistake or want more stability. if you just want to assemble straight out of the box, you dont need much. actually in the beginning all i used was a pair of nail clippers and an exacto knife and the knife was optional!

Rey Za Burrel 2008-03-12 06:48

just got a MG Destiny yesterday and finished building it

Shiro-Oh! 2008-03-12 09:19

It took them this long to release the Enact? And it's not even a normal Enact; they're custom. I want my AEU Enact...! :mad: On the other hand, 1/100 Flag doesn't seem so bad. And most of these wonderful kits are coming out in May... I'm gonna have an awesome birthday. :)

You mean that their bending is comprimised (If you try and pose it, it flops back down yeah?), right? Take that joint apart, get a small ball of blu-tack, squash it between fingers until its quite flat, and place it over the "female" slots, both of them (Don't push it in, let the male slot piece do it). Then put back the male slot piece back on and place together. Mind you, it holds for a limited time, less if you use the joint a lot or put heavy shit for it to support, so reapply constantly. Hope it helps, and I'll try and get some pix if you need.

So the one that I saw (with totally white head) is just another 1/100? What's so new in it?

Rey Za Burrel 2008-03-12 12:16

well , the MG Des is a little gray compare to the NG 1/100 , but it's not that much grey like it was in my pics , maybe because of my camera and my room's enviroment :heh:
the Arondite is great but because of its incredible lenght , my Des cant hold it up in the air with just one hand :(

Well, if its grey is that dark, then it's fine to me as Destiny was indeed darker in the series than the HG kit may suggest with its appearance. Same with HG Legend whose shade is much MUCH lighter than on TV.

Does this pose resemble something ? :D
I find it interesting that Destiny weapon's pack could be used like this ^^

Nice. I also see that you have a Duel there, but without its Assault Shroud :)

Rey Za Burrel 2008-03-12 12:40

Duel is my most favorite among the 1st 5 Gundams in Seed , so just couldnt help to grab one :D
the AS armor is cool but it reduces Duel's posability so I just removed it to make some poses :D
Hope the upcoming Avalanche Exia wont repeat the same mistakes :heh:

Heh. my favorite is Buster

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...l/DSCF3473.jpg

But as you can see, I have Duel, too. :D

I already see that 1/100 kits of 00 have much better poseability than their High Grade CE counterparts.

Rey Za Burrel 2008-03-12 13:56

u r right , 1/100 Dynames 's shoulder joints are just like those of MG Freedom :D

Arent you looking at the cosmic region Exia? the one with red "decals" all over thh body? (They call it 00 region now but w.e bandai x.x, shoulda stick with the GFF name)

Now I can see the difference. I don't see any decals there, though. However, the kit is so... white... I really don't know who'd buy this stuff.

I don't understand you, man. The fact that Shinn is disliked by many on this forum, doesn't mean I couldn't like him. Maybe not for his character overally, but for the character he could've become :P And, well, one should admit he had helluva cool Mobile Suits. ;)

Were you talking about this one?:

http://ga.sbcr.jp/mreport/009402/images/00s.jpg

If so, that's the upcoming 1/100 Astrea with its "mask" on.

this looks SO sexy :D

sword.impulse 2008-03-13 00:19

that mask reminds me of unicorn's face.

So, is the 1/100 flag coming out the regular blue one?

Subarunyon 2008-03-13 01:17

I still like Exia better than Astraea myself. I *think* people are liking Astraea simply because it's not the main suit ^^; Dunno tho feel free to correct me xD;

Sir Dearka 2008-03-13 01:25

I thought Astraea is red... So that's basically why I was so confused... A'right. I won't bebuying this one :P But I bet it looks way better with its GN cannon on :)

You're thinking about the Astraea Type F, which is the Astraea 15 years later with the red color scheme.

LightningZERO 2008-03-13 02:36

And it has a very high chance of being released too
