The PG rouge/skysgrasper had a stand and should work with wing zero I think.
Other than that try hlj.com

Nope. In fact I just checked the page recently and it was listed as ??? before. So even the listing for Crossbone X-2 Kai is pretty new. I expect that pics will pop up soon though, just keep checking the site.

I just looked at picures of the Unicorn Titanium Finish, and I can't really tell the difference between it and the standard version....

And was the pic of how the boxes were in a store from the same friend that's in Japan right now?

Cause the box was in front of him the whole time:

I hope I'm right about my assumptions >.<


No, I'm not looking for the Kampfer, but indeed that photo was taken by my friend. From those boxes, I wanted the Asshimar (I know, I'm a little oldschool, but I do buy stuff from 00 too, just less)

He got me the HGUC Psycho Gundam and MG Hyaku Shiki (if he got it right, it should be the HD edition)

I just got myself both Seravee and Seraphim recently... and I gotta say that those kits are really a must get..

Though there are a few slight setbacks:

- Seraphim's arms have a limited range of movement
- I'm running out of display space.... >.<

Then again, I'm having a hard time trying to make my own version of Celestial Megazord.:heh:

I have to agree. I viewed the runners, and you practically can't tell the difference from the original. The texture is sort of like the pearl finishes of Wing Zero, just not as shimmery. (which basically equates it to the normal one imo)

Limited range of movements on Seraphim? Care to elaborate? I don't seem to recall having that with my 1/144 one.

Haha, don't rush yourself with your Megazord. Playing around with the parts is an extremely fun process. ;)

With it true-to-anime late 70's design and proportion ? I don't think it will appeal to those post W Generation.

HGUC Hi-Nu OTOH.....

Slight improvement over the MG design there.

Edit :-

You don't like it or you just think the old school Gouf itself is not worth it? You're talking to a person that just received his MG Guncannon by post ;)

The shoulder armor blocks the front part of the arm from bending fully unless the whole arm is swung out a bit. The arm is also limited to bending ~80 degrees or so, unlike the other Gundams. The waist joint, as with the GN Archer, rotates only, does not bend (not a big problem, since the Seed HGs and most HGUC cannot do that either). The HG Seraphim also hangs onto the HG Seravee slightly differently than the faux-Seraphim. The arms/guns to not extend as far up nor as wide as the faux-Seraphims, so it gets a bit crowded around Seravee's head.

Spoiler for original design hi nu design:

The illustration for the "HG Hi Nu" is from the person who illustrates on this page: http://mechanic.blog25.fc2.com/blog-date-200612.html

Incidentally, the image is from 12/2006. Are you sure this is real?

Hmm, the shoulder armour only covers the upper arm section, which does not cause any problem since the elbow joint is below it. Even other Gundams, which do not have that shoulder armour, can only bend their arms to just about the same.

Haha, I didn't compare the faux Seraphim and the real one since I constructed my Celestial Gundam gattai immediately after I completed the individual Gundams.

Hey I'm new here to the forums so sorry if this already has been discussed but does any know if Bandai plans to release the 00 Seven Swords?

I know the kit will no doubt be good, but the design will consist of the oversize mouth piece, buldging upper torso and huge spiked shoulders from the original TV series, which might not appeal to the younger generations that prefer the sleek design that is the B3.

By the lord ! You are right that the images are identical. But then there's a cap from a magazine that mentions that the HGUC Hi-Nu is in production earlier. While the lineart might not be legit, there's a chance that the info about the kit is true. We'll just have to wait a few days more for the various hobby magazines to be out.

I really don't see your point. I am almost your age, but I started my Gundam adventure with Wing, like most kids i know did. But then I fell in love with the whole franchise and the original designs do appeal to me as well as most opf my peers,

Taken from Nghee Khiong:



How could one not love it? :)

thanks. And yeah, I confessed this "thing for units with big guns" in 'favorite mecha design" thread already haha

Un1ver5e 2009-03-21 06:48

At least yours has a theme. Mine's just a mash, haha. Here's my humble collection.

Well, as you might've guessed, my collection is not limited to big cannons :heh: Though I admit my favorites are among these.

duotiga 2009-03-21 06:53

my collection is even more messy.....

what i got for the wk


& 6 arm seravee!!!!!

Un1ver5e 2009-03-21 06:57

Heh, thanks. I've always felt displays with themes are more impressive though. I like the touch of having all the Dearkas around. Where did you get them from?

Here's a Lunamaria shrine I found:

It all generally started off when I thought it is cool to have a character figure as a match for ther suit. Showing some of the pics of my collection might make you understand the idea :D:

Spoiler for parts of my suit+character collection photo spam:


Then I thought that maybe, as a huge Dearka fan, I'll start specializing ;) So now I ended up with the bunch. Most of the time, I lurk ebay for good catches such as a Dearka figure separated from the whole set for 3$ :] To others, it is cheap. To me, it just means so much more...

@duotiga - Wow, nice Seravee. I think you just convinced me to buy both 1/144 Seraphim and Seravee :D

Un1ver5e 2009-03-21 07:22

Wow. Just wow. You just convinced me that I should go look out for some figmas to add to my collection.

P.S How tall is that huge ass Lelouch?! How much did you pay for him?

The figmas are great. It is after I bought them I found out they were just FIGMA specials and are discontinued already. But you should not have any problems with getting them on ebay, I guess :] As for the tall Lelouch, he is 30 cm in height and I paid 150 dollars but luckily it was during the time when dollar was still cheap.

Man, I sure dream about having a FIGMA of a Gundam character someday...

C.A. 2009-03-21 07:39

Gundam merchandise is mainly dominated by Gunpla, Bandai, Banpresto, Konami and such, they're not going to share the meat with others. So we won't see Maxfactory and Goodsmile releasing any Gundam soon.

Un1ver5e 2009-03-21 07:46

Nah, Gundams are not meant to be held static. The process of building them is the fun part.

True if we are talking about mechas. But Max Factory never released any FIGMA with a Gundam character like Amuro or Kira. I'd buy those in a whim as Figmas have great poseability.

Hell, but even as a static figure, I find it difficult to get Kai Shiden... <looks into ebay>

For models yes, but for character action figures, Gundam series is lacking.

There was a Ninja Lacus custom Figma made by some guy, people went crazy over seeing it.

Really nice collection you have there. More than I currently have lol. Btw how's the articulation on the nadleeh as I may be interested in buying that kit sometime.

On another note here's some pics of my lowly kits. It may not be much and it's no pro work but hope you guys enjoy.

(To be honest I'm too anal for my own good so gonna re-do the strike and finish the decals on the unicorn in the pic when I have the time before starting my project gundam black op's team).

Thanks. Haha, I didn't really go test the extremes of Nadleeh's mobility cause I was more concerned with how to do his armour purge. :p I don't have much complaints with it though, the construction of it's arms are almost similar to the old MGs (I compared it with my Freedom), except that you can't move the shoulders forwards or backwards.

The legs are attached to the waist piece with ball joints, so you can't stretch them out too far. The feet are attached to the legs with also just ball joints instead of the second joint MGs have.

Maybe the only thing I have gripes about is that when you combine the pieces to form Virtue, The feet don't stay flat on the ground because of the thick armour and lack of the second ankle joint.

I'm pretty happy with this kit though, comparing the improvements Bandai have done with their NG 1/100s. While the old ones had blocky proportions, their Gundam 00 ones look rather appropriate.

Ha, lowly? Dude, they look awesome. Are those red tiny stuff stickers or decals? They add the finishing touch to a model. I hate how the sticker ones show with their sheen, while I'm too lazy to scratch out the individual decals.

Btw, how did you make the white background for your photoshoots? Is there any kind of program I can use?

I would kill (ok, not that much, but spend a lot of money yes) for FIGMA's of gundam characters, specially from 0079 and Zeta. MAYBE from 00 too. But how unlikely is that?

JackRydden224 2009-03-22 00:48

Has anybody mentioned that HG Arche is coming in May and HG Susanoo in July?

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-03-22 00:54

Apparently, there are 5 more 00 slots for the Robot Damashii line.

I say it's the Trans-Am colors of the other Gundams, plus the limited edition Trans-Am 00.
