Already saw that. Bandai could nearly replicate that in MG's..

They put the wrong sword on the normal exia, that's all.

Try your local hobby-shops. I think itíll be cheaper there since old kits like those are often on sale or something. You don't have to worry about shipping either. I have MG God, and I bought it for more-or-less $20 at a local shop (standard price, not on sale).

Problem is that my area doesn't have hobby shops. Where I used to live.. I lived literally like 5 minutes away from Gundam Planet.

=D

Not here though. >_< So I have to do online.

Then look for various local online hobby-shops in your country. Look for a good deal. Surely GGInfinite isnít monopolizing gunpla business in the US, right? From my experience, local online-shops is always cheaper than importing (and less hassle) unless youíre doing gunpla business too.

I don't think that GG Infinite is monopolizing the market, but they're becoming the most famous I think amongst many modelers.

In US there's another online shop call Robot4less . Price is pretty much reasonable
You ain't find hard enough , in fact I found it thru Facebook link/page
Do your homework , don't be lazy to ask people to spoon feed you for sources

Robots 4 Less is usually expensive.

Hobbywave (note I didnt check the stock, thats the buyers job, im just recommending)

The flat shipping might save u some cash too

suiton629 2013-06-05 10:51

Well, I ended up deciding to get only:

MG GF13-017NJ SHINING GUNDAM
MG GF13-017NJII GOD GUNDAM

Which I think is more than enough for the G Gundam line. I managed to find it being sold by a seller on eBay that I have on my favorite seller list, and he sold it to me at $50 total (including shipping price) brand new. =P

Now I just have to wait for those as well as late July/early August when I should be receiving from GG Infinite:

MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam RM Ver.
MG AGE-2DB Gundam AGE-2 Double Bullet
Action Base 1 (Black)
MG Launcher/Sword Striker Pack RM Ver. (online exclusive)

:)

MUHAHAHAHAHA

Now there's nothing (MG GunPla wise) that I want. Well at least til kits from my wish list are released.

Skye629 2013-06-07 00:35

Im thinking of getting a 1/100 NG to give a somewhat custom color scheme to (Or some minor color changes based on the mech)

I know the 1/100 NG 00 kits and HG 1/100 EW kits are pretty nice (00 for overall and EW for sculpt and details)

Already have these 1/100 NG/HGs
-Tallgeese 3
-Vent Saviour
-Red Frame

I was thinking about maybe the 1/100 Overflag, change the white to silver and add some other silver apps where I feel it will look good

Or maybe the 1/100 NG 00 Gundam, then practice masking to paint on details like in the Designer color versions (the stripes and stuff)

Any suggestions?

My pick:

1/100 HG Astraea (white or red F version)
1/100 HG Avalanche Exia
1/100 HG Dynames gundam
1/100 HG Tieren Ground Type

Great kits!

Teiren? (I know what it is, but the kit??)

Hmmm the Astraea sounds like a potential candidate (white one)

1/100 Tieren is one of the best kits from 00 1/100 NG line. While still true to the original shape and design, it's a solid kit with superb articulation and arsenal. Heck, it even looks good and badass if you like tank-like monoeye MS.

I have to completely agree, the rough surface on the armor plates is fantastic. If only tieren wasn't so lowsy portrait in the anime it would have been even better :)

best 00 gundam kit i built, but you got to love the design

suiton629 2013-06-07 07:01

Personally, I never found the 1/100 No Grade kits to be that good. They're just HG kits with bigger parts. I would probably opt to get MG's and HG's if I were you.
