Get at least a 1/144 HG kit to start with. 1/100 HG's are even simpelere because of the bigger pieces, but you only have seed/seed destiny or 00 to choose from.


I second this




Also guys, it seems that the Astray Noir is not all Bandai is gonna throw at us:

Looks like a Unknown color Astray Unit with a Aile (modded?) Pack and some slight changes

Honestly, you can start with whatever you want too, a first-grade is too simple, and they look horrible.

Start off with a 1/144 NG or hell, if you feel like it, a 1/100 MG - Buy a kit you think look good and give it your all. Just make sure you have the proper tools or you'll have Nubs everywhere.

Building gunpla isn't harder than building Legos. Making them look really good requires some painting and/or panel lining though. But it's not a hard hobby.

" Astray Blueframe with too many goddamn Spikes and Aile striker " and " Astray redframe Dual-wielding Tacticoolsword-blaster " ?

maknaedik 2013-09-04 03:22

The blue frame seems to use the new v-fin that comes with the caltfflkvnsdklgsdn sword (cause I can't spell nor pronounce it). Somewhat, its bagpack looks similar to Aile pack and not the Red Frame's flight pack.

Though I obviously like red, seems like Red Frame just doubled its tactical arms, which is cool, but the idea is impractical and not that unique.

But now the question is, are they gonna be exclusive again? I hope yes, actually. I want newer ones that these recycled ones.

It's been a while and everyone has probably moved on, but just going back to that Sazabi, if that's anything to go by it seems to me the Sinanju is going to remain the pinnacle of a Char style suit in master grade as far as looks go. I've never been a fan of the Sazabi if I'm honest, and the make over so far hasn't convinced me. But still its early days, I'll wait and see what it looks like properly coloured up before I make final judgments.

Also I came in to the lounge room today to find gravity has finally started to take its toll on my Age-fx's hand holding its giant blaster. :heh:

Rising Dragon 2013-09-04 12:41

Good Christ, one of those Tactical Arms swords is big enough, especially with how the Red Frame's has like five different goddamn modes. Now there's gonna be one with TWO of 'em!?

helois 2013-09-05 10:32

i feel the connection point of the two shield in Fenix Unicorn,will keep the two tactial arms.. XD

suiton629 2013-09-05 23:03

So on top of the HG 00 kits, I'm not adding in the 3 HG Gundam X kits and the HG God Gundam and HG Shining Gundam. =)

Anyone know if any 3rd party groups are going to be selling recasts of the Caletvwich sword?

It's actually "Caletvwlch" :p
Anyway, your best bet (or one) is to buy from GG Infinite.

http://gginfinite.com/HG-1-144-Astra...lch-Combo.html

http://gginfinite.com/Hobby-Japan-Oc...aletvwlch.html

It's apparently sold out at HLJ. You could try Gundam Planet or Tatsu Hobby to see if they could special order it for you.

For the 1/144? I don't know any. But for the 1/100, BTF (the guys behind the GN Full Saber) will be releasing one.

I wouldn't trust any third party company for knock off Bandai products or knock offs of anything PlaMo/Gundam related.

If you're going to be enjoying this hobby, then put the money towards the company that makes it officially.

Dude, the world is big. Bandai is not the ultimate company to get your Gunpla from. Sure, most of their products are the best, but not all of them. There are many cases where a third party company produce things which Bandai never made, or things which are equal or better and cheaper than Bandai’s. Just to name a few: BTF Full Saber for 00 Qan[T], MG Liaoya for Shen Long, MG Strike Freedom’s WoL effect, HG AGE-1 Razor DM, HG 1/144 Qubeley MC Model, 1/100 Kshatriya, etc.

People can do what they want, but I'd rather just stick with only Bandai products.

I was actually looking for the 1/144, but this is even better :D

If your a fan, off course :). Why don't you order all gundam models at once, saves us the trouble of having to read your questions about them every time.

suiton629 2013-09-09 21:39

So uh, what happened to MG Age-3 Normal and MG Age-FX? We haven't seen anything aside from those prototypes shown a while ago.

I wonder if Bandai just plans to splurge out the rest of the Age MGs all at once in 2014 Age-1 Full Gransa, Age-3 Normal, Age-3 Orbital, Age-3 Fortress, Age-FX, and Age-FX Burst

:p

Knight-of-Gold 2013-09-10 08:17

Put on hold indefinitely. More Wing and UC MGs on the way instead. Possibly even some build fighter MGs.

You think Build Fighter will get MGs when we didn't get any for GunPla Builders? :confused:

StrikeFreedomV2 2013-09-10 09:54

GunPla-Builders wasn't a full-fledged show or a OVA that had anything to do story-wise with any of the other shows.
