It'll be like that IMO. Kinda like the MG Duel Gundam.. We get the regular Duel Gundam, and parts to give him the Assault Shroud. I'm hoping for a MG with the armor & glastron launcher (as shown) and also parts for Zefuld so we can buy 2x of it and display it in both forms.

A question - how bad are polycap-less kits? I'm thinking of getting a HG Brave but loose parts that drop off easily annoy the hell out of me, so I'm thinking twice.

I have a few polycap-less MG's, like the F91 and the Unicorn Gundam. I put them all away because they had so many loose parts -.- Unicorn couldn't even stand proberly. Don't know about the HG's, though. I would check some video reviews for those.

Check out like Prime92, Stryderprime, Vegeta, etc on YouTube. Most likely one of them have reviews for the ones in question.

They can be kinda bad. The Unicorn is definitely the worst offender in that regard. Mainly because the knees like to actually break when you bend them!
The Sinanju also doesn't use polycaps but I don't really have problems with it. The joints are very very tight though so I am afraid of moving it every time I touch it :P
My F91 is sort of lose but it works well.
I do have the HG Brave Commander as well. And it really isn't all that lose in my opinion, I do like that kit a lot!

suiton629 2012-10-21 17:31

In case you're too lazy to search...

1/144 HG Brave Commander Type Review
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knXQiF_o0e4&hd=1

I know there's a regular kind, but I assume this and the regular one are similar of the same minus the color changes and a few additional parts used to indicate that it is the Commander type.

bio9205 2012-10-21 17:58

I've seen reviews, I'd just like the personal opinion of the folks here at AS :D Thanks for the info guys. But doesn't the Unicorn use poly caps? Or are you not referring to the HGUC?

EDIT: Whoops, just realized you were talking about the MG. :heh: I'll see what I can do with the Brave!

duotiga 2012-10-21 18:48

I have the brave kits both normal & commander type . Surprisingly is rather firm & is not loose

casval cehack 2012-10-22 00:24

The HG Nobel is also polycap-less and the joints seems to hold. I would be more concern on the PS (instead of ABS) pieces that connect to the polycaps...now my Danazine is a serpent dragon because of that.

Speaking of loose parts...I fear for these joints. I may have to buy two RG Zetas just to display the new waverider look.

You sure love the Waverider mode do you? ;)

On another note, I've finished another backlog of mine. It's MG Aile Strike + Bazooka

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
Since I'm lazy, I still haven't build the Aile Striker Pack yet :p. Maybe I'd do it after I finished my MG Duel.

Znozzy 2012-10-22 02:28

Man, that Bazooka is glorious. 4 magazines. mmmm.

Zeydra 2012-10-22 03:16

I actually built a HG Brave Commander a little while back, got it posed on my shelf on it's stand right now. It was a pain in the backside to put some of it together and honestly would have been better with polycaps, but it's been keeping the pose I set it in a few months back really well and nothing fell to pieces on me. Though they do certainly feel like they would if I started playing around with it much, which is why I just did a basic pose, put it on the stand, and left it there.

The arms and legs seem like they're solid enough, but the shoulder and hip area adornments feel like they would pop off if I tried to do anything ambitious.

And that would be my view on the kit. It looks great though, I will say that. Even in a basic gun pointing pose it looks really good.

Znozzy 2012-10-22 12:01

After some googling and zero results, here comes a question!

Did bandai ever release a model of the Bandit from Turn A in any scale?

I don't think so.
Besides, I think the other series are more popular let alone the Bandai being a non-lead character.

Hmm....I don't think they did. IIRC they only produce the plamo of Turn A, Turn X, Kapool, Sumo (Gold & Silver), & Flat in standard HGs. The Gundams & Gold Sumo are also made in HG 1-100 scale.

Yeah, i could find the kits you mentioned above, but you never know. Had to ask, thanks for the reply

GN0010 Nosferatu 2012-10-22 13:39

So Bandai went and made the Robot Damashii Blitz Gundam, an exclusive.


After the other 4 were all mass releases.

Well, FUCK YOU TOO MOTHER FUCKERS.

I have the Standard Test Type (I liek Green :3) anyways it HIGHLY depends on how much you like to mess around with it and change its poses (in this case transformation also applies), if you hardly do that then it holds together very nicely, extended messing around though will loosen the joints to the point where you will need glue or putty to make the joints tighter again

On a random note I'm building my second AGE HG kit, a G-Bouncer which I impulse bought at a local hobby store. Loving it so far :D, only complaint is the blade on the shield is.....too clear? The color doesn't come through well

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-10-23 08:47

I guess Nike will like this:

So, there you go, Nike. It's a Metal Build Exia Repair III in 1/100 scale. I think it's overall better than Exia MG. If you have the money, go buy it right away.

Well, he commented in GG that he still wanted an MG, as of expected.

:D Typical. I bet it's due to the price. If the price is the same as other MGs, I think he'll snatch it right away.

As for me, my eyes are more set on these.

I finally get to see Xi & Mk.V in a non-Fix Figuration figure. I want to know the exact size of 'em. If they're the same as HGs, I might pick them up :D.

I'm actually interested in getting the Xi because of my curiosity on its design.

Robot Tamashi line has always been on 1/144 scale. For Xi Gundam, it would be around 18-19 cm (pretty tall for a 1/144 scale).

I don't think so:

The smaller ones are the RDs (the bigger ones are HGs). Still want to say that they're always on 1/144 scale? ;)

My bad :) I didn't know there were some exceptions.

Actually, many RDs are smaller than their HG counterpart. The exceptions are those RDs which have the same size or bigger than the HGs. Here’s a standard size comparison of RD (left) & HG (right):

The non-standard scale is kinda one of the reasons why I went full gunpla after getting a couple of MiA Seed figures way back.

The metal build Exia R3 is tempting though.

bio9205 2012-10-24 07:54

Wait, so the metal build Exia R3 is a totally new build? (i.e. new set of runners, and not the MG and HG)

Like duotiga said, the Metal Build is an 1/100 action figure with some metal parts. That's why the price is hella high.

bio9205 2012-10-24 09:40

I see! But holy crap, I could get 10 HGs at that price.

User214926 2012-10-24 11:11

I've been going a little hardcore with my HG 00 kit building. =P I've decided to do just straight builds for all my GunPla from now on.

I will show off my stuff.
In the mean time I'm selling the Age HG kits that I've built on eBay. You know my eBay store's link... If you don't then check my YouTube channel (same user name) or my blog.

* EDIT *
This is in fact xxnike629xx. I just created this account so that it would be easier for people to recognize who this is, and I wanted to have a fresh start on the forums. =)

And my Qan[T] is underway (release date for Aegis was just a few days too late for them to ship together -.-)

Very nice! Although I'm not a Seed/Seed Destiny fan, and I won't get the MG Aegis, I still think it's a pretty cool kit.

MoonLightShadows 2012-10-25 19:31

I always wanted a HGUC Dom Tropen and Z'Gok. I like the Tropens high speed
maneuverability in the desert in 0083 and Unicorn. and for the Zeon Remnant Z'Gok, I noticed it is Olive Green instead of blue. :p
