Most of them are old production so the cost multiplier isn't that bad, usually 20% at worst (O Gundam & ACD cost 14-15 bucks here)

With shipping cost as cheap as 2.5 bucks per kg, this made local shopping fairly decent, despite slight annoyance such as non-gundam MS being rare as dodo bird

Shinobi2013 2013-11-15 14:26

In my case, I bought the 0 Gundam ACD VS. Exia R-2(sold separately)from my local hobby shop since 2011. I already painted the 0 Gundam but the Exia R2 is still in straight built status until now.

This reminds that I have to do some work on my Destiny Zaku's xD Nice kits man :D

ZeroXSEED 2013-11-15 15:44

Compared to that, my collection so far...

I'll relocate them to proper place as soon as I get the action base/stage act :(

(The Overflag still lacking stickers, liners, decals and topcoat)

Shinobi2013 2013-11-15 15:54

Nice Zaku Warrior collection firefox and ZeroXSEED too! hopefully it will grow!

Anyway I want to share my custom Age-2 in Deep Striker look!

ZeroXSEED 2013-11-15 16:20

Dat paintjob! :eek:

Is this a kit-bash, scratch-built, or both?

Rising Dragon 2013-11-15 16:23

Looks to be a bit of both. You can definitely recognize the AGE-2 Double Bullet and AGE-3 Normal parts mixed in with the AGE-2 Normal.

Shinobi2013 2013-11-15 16:31

Thanks! They are scratchbuilts, some parts are just copied from Age-3 and even Byarlant custom, the ship is a kitbash from G Defenser core fighter and age-2 bullet.

The local online shop has lot's of model already, though their stock tend to deplete fast. I saw both test type and ACD, the rest is history.

Partly out of curiosity, but where do you live?

If you are in the US or Canada, Hobbywave is a nice option as they offer flat shipping rates

So buying in bulk from them is nice



BTW ppl how do you upload peronal pictures again?

suiton629 2013-11-15 16:55

GG Infinite (if you live in West coast or want online exclusives)
Gundam Planet (if you live in the East coast)

That's what I go by or just check Amazon or eBay.

You need an URL of the image file. I just post pictures mostly from the ones I upload to my blog. =P

Or, you could upload photos to like IMGur or Photobucket and use the image URLs that way,

Upload your personal pictures to image-hosting sites like IMGUR or photobucket or your personal album in Animesuki. Then insert the individual pic's URLs when you push the "insert image" command when you make a new post.

What happened to this one?

Online Exclusive, MG Exia (Roll Out Colors)

From GunPla Expo 2009.

relentlessflame 2013-11-15 17:57

I want to mention, if you're going to be posting a large collection of images, please use the "images" tag in order to group the content together and prevent large amounts of loading for other users.

It's used similarly to the spoiler tag or, in other words, like this:

[images]...your content goes here...[/images]

You can also add a descriptive label, just like a spoiler tag:

[images=My Collection of Gundam Model Images]...your images go here...[/images]

The other option would be to use post thumbnails that link to the full image. This is another nice way to provide a preview of the content.

Thanks!

What do you think happened to it? It probably got scrapped.

suiton629 2013-11-15 18:06

Maybe since the MG Exia R2 is coming, Bandai might be willing to bring this back? I'd pay money for that and a MG Exia R3.

Wouldn't you rather want a Avalanche Exia than a simple re-color of a kit you already own or that you could simple re-paint?

Yea. Sure. But that one has less of a chance of being made even as online exclusive since it would require a crap ton of new parts.

Ah thanks guys! So all I need to do is make an account then Im good to go?

suiton629 2013-11-15 18:34

All you need is a website that can host image files.

And then you would type like this..

[.spoiler][img]put in the URL of the image file here[/img][/spoiler.]

Without the period marks.

Looks like MG X is going to use the same finger swapping as the newer wing/seed kits.

Can't say I'm a fan, but I'll take what I can get.

I think its save to say that the swapping fingers are the new Standard for Non-UC MGs. I believe the 00 Gundam Seven Swords was the last MG that had the old hands.

Actually we would prefer the use of the images tag as opposed to the spoilers tag, ok?

Thanks! ^^

They save a lot of time when it comes to painting, but they just don't hold things well in my opinion. Plus I find they look kinda crappy lol.

I actually prefer the swapping hands. Besides, you at least have multiple hands whereas the previous standard you only had 1 pair of hands where the pointer and thumb were separate, and there's just a peg on the palm.

Better yet it seems the Satellite cannon solar panels looks like it has room for a nice clear part in them over a silver/chrome sticker/paintjob

ZeroXSEED 2013-11-16 00:25

Out of ignorance, what do you guys mean swapping fingers?

Does that mean they get more than one set of hand?

Swapping fingers mean different finger-set (eg. trigger-finger for guns, holding-fingers for beam sabers, etc). There's no movable fingers. This trend was started by MG Wing EW lines.

The older MGs like SEED & Destiny line have only a single type of hands with movable fingers and a peg in each palm of the hand to hold weapons (the old Aile Strike & Freedom MGs don't even have pegs). However, there are also exceptions like MG Strike Noir & Strike E IWSP where they also give swapping-fingers (for holding different weapons) aside from the standard movable fingers. The latest MGs from SEED line (starting from MG Duel) follow the swapping-finger trend.

Oldest UC MGs like the old RX-78-2, Mk. II ver.1, Zeta ver. 1, ZZ, Alex, etc don't even have pegs on the palm of their hands. So, holding weapons needs a bit of work. They still give you the open-hand and closed-fist variation though.

Correction, the whole hands of MG Strike Noir/Strike E as well as MG Destiny and MG Impulse is swapppable not just fingers, they resemble somehow from the latter or Bee-Craft made NG 1/100 Seed Destiny kits.

Ah yes. That's what I meant. I should've said swappable-hands instead :heh:. And yes, I know about Destiny (I own it) but I never intended to mention all MG exceptions, just name 1 or 2 examples.

Appel 2013-11-16 05:45

I'm fine with swappable fingers as long as they work well.
The X is also not as big as the suits that have gotten the new articulated hands, so I am not surprised at all that they gave it the swappable fingers.

I noticed it too... I'm kinda worried about prototyping is all. It would be nice to have a clear plastic piece to put over the ... Solar panels? lol. I could see it being nice. Paint a metallic colour under it, transparent colour over the clear parts, resulting in a interesting glow effect.

suiton629 2013-11-16 14:15

I dunno. I think it looks like it'll have a clear plastic piece over bumpy plastic parts that I assume you'll put in a chrome silver color decal sticker.

Skye629 2013-11-16 17:24

Kudos to Hobbywave, getting me my order 48 hours after ordering, they'll be keeping me as a customer ^^

Anyways, hooray for Proto-Zero and Arios Designer Ver.!

Well actually they got taken away for Christmas presents lol, so I wont be seeing them again for slightly over a month xD

Not complaining though, it means I don't have to pay

suiton629 2013-11-16 17:49



Which SD's here are the best?

Skye629 2013-11-16 18:36

Out of the ones you posted:

00 and AGE are the most modern/up to date ones

And SD Wing Gundam EW, that one is fantastic (even better than the 00 and AGE ones)
