But why people would want NIGHTINGALE tho? It's unique (I will admit that), from Char, red, and...big?? But it's from the novel, and I really doubt most ppl who purchased this kit would have read the novel...who knows, nightingale may have a horrible performance in the novel :D :D (I doubt it tho....but I don't think the buyers care)

lol, next time if I see someone I know owns this kit, I am going to lie and tell them that kit tanked horribly in the novel and see how they react. XD

I've been on a bit of a spree with lockdown forcing me to work from home... Though I finally did get my hands on the PGU RX78, which was hands down one of the most fun kits i've ever built.

Here's a snippet of some of what I've been up to.

Think they turned out pretty good, despite me not having the means to actually airbrush/paint them...

Next on the list to build is the Ver.ka Sazabi! Hopefully it'll be a fun one.

Umm....be careful with the torso-waist-hip connection. Don't play with it too hard or it will snap.

Anyway, great work on the kits. Did you detach a piece of funnel on Nu's back?

Drake 2021-08-11 16:12

Yeah I found that just that 1 extra funnel was enough to tip everything off balance or just cause the set to wobble more when not on the supplied stand. It's currently affixed the a small base next to the kit on my shelf so it's not going to waste.

The Nu Gundam + psycho zaku ver.ka I built both had some delicate parts to watch out for, so I'll take my time on Sazabi. Thanks for the tip.

I know people say that Gundam kits sell like hot cakes but the last couple of releases have been downright crazy:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
Also, both of the above kits are supposed to be the same scale. How can there be such huge gap in height? Is Hi-nu Gundam really don't have a fix canon of how it should look and how big it is? It's been considerably different from one kit to another :eyespin:.

n0m@n 2021-09-14 09:51

I never knew Hi-nu Gundam's wing (the non funnel part) were supposed to be that thick... But it looks amazing.

Even Tony Stark likes gunpla :D

I can't read Korean but I assume the disclaimer near the end says the clear parts used in the display to recreate the armor purge scene are not included, right?
It would be dope those are included, though.

Another exciting RG announcement:

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2021-11-17 23:05

^ That is an awkward arm-folding pose. Looks like nothing can beat the old MG when it comes to that specific pose.

That said, I'm still excited. Can't wait for the hyper version down the line.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2021-11-20 11:14

Oh wow, they're still continuing the Fix Figuration line? And it's another Wing Ka? Like come on, guys! Make a goddamn GFF of a rare MS, not another version of Wing!

Sweet. MGEX strike freedom. Now the SF won’t look crap when next to MG Freedom 2.0!

MG Strike Freedom is far from crap.

https://www.1999.co.jp/itbig05/10051947t4_m.jpg

It's more faithful to the anime design and has great articulation. Heck, even the proportion still beats the newer RG, HGCE & MB. It's elegant in its simplicity.

Meanwhile, the MGEX only added unnecessary details into the design just for the heck of it:
Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
I don't know about you, but adding a clusterfuck of things that's not there before is not my ideal MG. It's a redesign that stray further from the original appeal (just like MG Feedom 2.0). This is why MG 1.0 of Strike, Freedom, Strike Freedom & Infinite Justice are still precious to me. They embrace the anime design.

B214 2022-02-20 05:55

The MGEX Strike Freedom made the back look detachable like a striker pack.

n0m@n 2022-02-20 21:07

Oh I actually like the new gimmicks. I mean they would have to justify why this new SF would be costly. I passed the MGEX Unicorn so I’m looking forward to the very first MGEX I would be getting. Though I imagined Exia to be the one getting MGEX instead.

Seed destiny may not be liked by many ppl, but bandai will forever give gratitude to Fukuda :D

Strike Freedom must have helped bandai collect a lot of money since its existence XD

Not very liked in the West but Seed Destiny is fairly popular in Japan. Strike Freedom is also a fairly popular design over there.

I still prefer freedom over strike freedom. Strike freedom is just an overkill (weapon load wise), but interestingly, I think strike freedom's backpack is easier to make compared to freedom (the wing from my rg freedom just keeps falling apart)

And speaking of seed...I thought they have a movie coming out this year ?

Back to model, bandai just finally creates Shenlong!!! But a bit disappointed with just one gundam announcement from banadi (besides sd)...seems like gundam model is slowing down??

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2022-04-27 12:24

I'm one year too late in promoting this video but it's seriously good:

The direction for the stop-motion, camera angles, effects & skit actually fused into one incredible whole that's more than the sum of its parts (no pun intended). His channel culminated into this one video which proves that this is a labor of love (to the point where he didn't upload anything after this. It's like the man is already content with his masterpiece).
