I keep the bigger ones to put my spare parts, other figures etc. Then I cut the smaller ones so only the cover arts remain (I love the pretty cover art :D) and keep them too

What do you guys do with your gunpla boxes? Do you keep em? I do, but they start piling up. I'm thinking about tossing some and putting the models I keep in them into storage bags or something. Boxes take up too much space :frustrated:

Put the completed kits back in them when not displayed. I only display when im in te mood to, so that way they dont get dusty. But as for the boxes, just in my closet.

dodgethis_sg 2008-03-29 02:08

Throw the boxes away to make space for more kits.

chance to get a stand with all new gundams are slim since they sell action stand now =(
so far:
Exia Avalanche
Kyrios Gust
Dynames Torpedo
eins wut ever name lol...
I am pretty sure there would be a mod for Nadleeh, maybe a more powerfull armor than virtue... who knows, got pay attention to the side stories hehehe...


I was wondering about my boxes too, it's already stacking up to 6 feet tall. even thou i love the box art i will probably end up throwing them away except 1 or 2 big ones to store gundams when i move....

PS: wut do u guys do with old gundam models u lost interest ( the 4 HG from stargazer has been sitting in my closet for a while ...:heh:)

Mine are cooped up in boxes somewhere (mostly 1/144 wing kits)

I guess, one day when im bored i should "renovate" them and maybe give them custom color schemes. Theyre unpainted since i bought them when i was like 10 and are snapped together horribly.

btw, as requested, some grand slam pics on the PG Strike. Finished painting/panel lining the arms when i got home today, which just leaves the legs. Itll probably be done tomorrow.

I know this is the wrong thread to ask, but is the Avalanche Exia the same as 00 Gundam? Or are they completely two different mobile suits? Any info on it?

it's side story, events happened not in anime
there are Gundam 00F, Gundam 00V
one is about pre-current event, one is side story of current event...
they are in Manga form, or novels maybe, if you poke around u should find translated version somewhere

Nice, i think it was linked b4, it was one of the hobby mag site weekly special

MakubeX2 2008-03-29 04:58

Anyone here going to attempt a scratch built of the 00 Gundam before it's official kit debut in June ?

Astrana 2008-03-29 05:00

not with my noob OBB skill lol, makube make a kyrios gust ^^


philmein 2008-03-29 05:10

Well, I think you misunderstood me Astrana. The 00 Gundam I was referring to is a new suit that was introduced in episode 25 recently, and I was curious to know if it's the Avalanche Exia we all know so well or is it a completely brand spankin' new model?

Btw, there's a kit coming out for it this June????? WTF?!!! Where's the source?

i am not going into the episode 25 discussion thread, I usually dont mind see some SS b4 the show, but for the final episode i will wait for the suprise. if there is new gundam might be plutone, the 5th original GN drive. the reason i don't think it will be avalanche is because I read couple manga of 00F and 00V and plutone was assisting/supervising Dynames Torpedo with Lockon in it. Bandai usually don't merge the side story with the main show, but there is a possibility we see it happen in next 00. the picture in this thread was taking from press o some sort of bandai planning thing, so these models on the pictures will coe out

philmein 2008-03-29 05:19

YES!
Ok, so it does look like it's a completely brand spankin' new model...

Astrana 2008-03-29 05:25

just realized 00V models are all ad-ons.
Avalanche - shouder equipments
gust - booster leg attachment
Torpedo - huge cannon and minor shoulder attachment

so since they have all the mold i can see all of them coming out in 1/100

I demand more COOKIES!!!

Exia didn't even glow a bit red when it docks with GN Armor. Good job Bandai. You just cheat my money T.T

i think the real cheating of $$ is why not spray it in actual Trans-Am mode for Exia? -_-"""

they should make exia with glow in the dark material, but instead of green make it red

And he has done it again, auction bid is over US$200 at the time of this posting.
Not too bad when you consider this custom made fig is 4 cm at the tallest.

Astrana 2008-03-29 10:30




mmmmmm this will be good....

beamknight87 2008-03-29 10:59

the Kyrios Gust looks a lot like the Z Plus Hummingbird.


Also.... F**K YES! GN FLAG!!!!! Bet Bandai will lure us with it lol

I can't get enough of this Kyrios variation; so bad-ass. I personally like its flight mode, especially that awesome cockpit. And since they're releasing Avalanche Exia, I really hope they release the rest of the MSV as well.

Thanks for sharing, Astrana. *gives Astrana two chocolate-chip cookies*

It has those yellow vent similar to Exia. The face looks sinister, too.

Go to Page 9 in the Gundam 00 Episode 25 Discussion Thread... there's a clearer pic of the 00 Gundam. :)

On-Topic: I've just bought myself a HG Gundam Throne Eins.... Man, this model is a beauty! Here are the (in)significant pointers:

-It's a uniquely-designed Gundam up to the extent that it doesn't look like one at all... (The most unique Gundam I've seen so far besides the Turn A... Though the Throne Eins looks way better.)

-A small, Justice/Aegis-ish head. (Yep... The head is much smaller than Dynames' but the height of the "horn" makes up for it)

-GN Launcher... (This thing is.... HUGE! When unfolded, the length of this baby is TWICE the Throne Eins' height!! :D)

-Backpack... (There are two hardpoints here for the Drei's GN Particle channel wire...Cool!)

-GN HandGun... (Quite huge for a Hand Gun.... I had some trouble when I tried to combine it with the GN Launcher for the first time but a lil' practice works it out)

-GN Beam Saber... (Nice storage position.. but the handle's pointing the wrong way... Wonder how they grab their sabers... Oh, one more thing... There's NO CLEAR RED PLASTIC for the beam... Aww...

There you go... sweet huh? If you wanna buy a Throne... Go for the Eins first. It might not come with a beam saber but the other weapons should satisfy you until you get another Throne. :D

jonli 2008-03-29 23:41

I can't wait for the GN Flag kit :D!!!!!! I hope you can move the GN Drive around like it does in the anime.

actually , that's GN beam rifle for ya . Zwei and Drei are equipped with GN handguns . That's why the one in Ein's hand looks a little huge like you've mentioned :D

got Eins a week after release, it is a nice one, doing touch up on it while waiting for Zwei it's already in custom, prbably gonna take 3-4 days to get here:(

Critias 2008-03-30 14:44

I don't have any HG 1/144s (i have 1/100s) of Double 00 series. Is it true the former do not include the red plastic parts for the beam sabers? WTF is THAT about? A step down isn't it?

You're talking about those clear-molded beam sabers, right? Yeah, only Virtue has them.

ok, to be honest, imo the 0 gundam looks like crap. it gave me an impression is was put together from other gundams, RX-78, MKII...

dodgethis_sg 2008-03-30 19:46

lol Blame Kunio Okawara.

Um why? Is the price of oil affecting the cost of gunpla so much that they can't mass produce the same tiny mold and package it with the others? Hell :frustrated:

dodgethis_sg 2008-03-30 20:10

lol Make your own or recycle from other kits that have extras.

I know, but that's not the point. i mean, we pay money for these things and they gimp us for it. I guess they gotta cut costs somewhere....lame as that may be :(
