So cleaning out my closest and what do I find, a MG Nu ver ka....

I had actually totally forgot I had that lol.

Also found HG Arios.

But putting that aside, finally found the first Zoid I want!

Also need to get HG Barbatos and a Graze or 2.

Hahaha, trust me no one was more surprised than I was when I'm standing there after pulling out a box from the back and going "wtf?! where did this come from?!":twitch::eyespin:

I checked my order history to make sure and very much so, I did buy one last year.
I had a MG Musha MKII, Dual Assault and Buster stored away but the Nu must have fallen behind them at some point and just totally forgot about it.

Also found a 1/72 Eurofighter Typhoon as well and actually really eager to build that more so than the Nu right now:p

Which reminds me I need to get my hands on a 1/72 Ace Combat ASF-X Shinden II!

- At least you know your priorities. What company made your version? I have an Italeri kit (okay but not the best as it was an early Eurofighter version) and an Airfix kit (in storage as I have a few other things to finish).

I still think the Rafale is sexier than the Eurofighter.

Its alright, its nothing compared to some of the things I have forgotten in the past.

I once purchased an extra TV all because I had forgotten I had a 30" HD TV stuffed under my bed, which I was saving for when I bought my Playstation 3.

Fortunately, the return was accepted *whew*

NOW, to be fair to Bonta Kun...

She was at first not pleased to learn she was getting a chibi robo, until I told her its armed to the teeth and comes with a little cannon wagon, she thinks I'm the best older sibling in the world.

I used to do a lot of those snap-together models they sold at our local comic shop back in the day (the 90s). I don't think I have them anymore though after moving.

Those were a lot of fun, like legos but with Japanese instructions I couldn't read. Luckily you just follow the pictures :D

It's a revell model, while I've been out of the loop with that stuff for a while I know revell kinda had mixed reviews, some say bad, some say good, I'd be with the latter, never had any problems with them and they were all pretty good builds.
In fact to my surprise the only problem I ever had with any scale model was with a Hasegawa one, a Nighthawk had a really bent wing.

Still need to get my hands on a SR-71 Blackbird.

Also the 1/72 Scale Rosenthal CR-Hogire Noblesse Oblige I want.

And a nice big 1/350 battleship altho still not sure what one......

But actually the top of my list atm is MG Jesta Cannon, I really really want that!

Auto +1 for the pilot on the boxart (and another point for the title along the side, it looks sick)

Maybe in the beginning (ala Broken Blade).

But we all know it will come with this:

That big gun doesn't look very practical though, can't they use the enemy's weapons?

Iíd say letís watch the show first (to get our facts right) before arguing where the cannon comes from and whether or not itís practical. Otherwise, itíll be a useless arguments based on assumptions.

Alright then, I just find the idea of lugging a big gun around to be tedious, I've seen beam rifles smaller than that.

I'm kinda enjoying my Wing Zero Honoo since it can transform without me having to switch parts around, even if the bird mode looks akward from an underside point of view.

Barbatos is going to cannibalize enemy parts and evolve over the course o the series. I'm pretty sure it will come with numerous modes. Long range, mid range, close range.

Wing Zero 2015-09-11 13:48

I love my MG Tallgeese 2, However I'm still waiting on a release for the very special Leo xD, oh wow five years since I posted anything.

Chibiloli 2015-09-13 08:21

Can you make a regular Rozen Zulu with the Episode 7 version? I ordered a Regular Rozen Zulu but I found an old episode 7 Rozen Zulu behind my shoe rack that's still unopened.

Patriot's Blade 2015-09-13 11:29

i can't believe due to accidents when trying to mod the HG Jagd Doga's arm shield mounts to make the arms more useful causes me to buy multiple Jagd Doga's as emergency parts because of the damages, thank god the prices that i got were cheap, i hope they will do an HG Revival that fixes all the problems for that, make the goddamn shields having an extra side mount/swivel system!!

now i understand how the Gundam Build Fighters characters feel when they had to find spare parts for their Gunpla after they got smashed to crap by the battles :heh:

Yes, you can make Normal Rozen Zulu from Episode 7 version. In other words, the HGUC Rozen Zulu Episode 7 has made the older HGUC Rozen Zulu obsolete (unless you like the funky color). The Episode 7 kit is almost like Bandaiís way of apologizing for the blunder they made the first time around with HGUC Rozen Zulu.

Oh, great, so I ordered an old Rozen Zulu for nothing, I guess I should've asked here first before I got it, maybe I can scavenge it for spare parts when the need arises.

Anybody here know any good Sniping type Kits that isn't a Gundam from 00? I have the GM Sniper K9 already, but I want another one, I was simply thinking of buying some random Gundam and giving it that R4 type Beam Rifle I got as a promotional item.

Rising Dragon 2015-09-13 15:48

Does the M1A Astray have a kit? That's a non-Gundam sniper MS, though it looks like a Gundam.

Even if it does have a Kit, I think I'll be hard pressed to find one, I would prefer if it were a newer model I can easily get my hands on at the moment, I can't order on Amazon right now due to exhausting my credit card, so maybe one of the less Niche kits readily available in the market.

Rising Dragon 2015-09-13 16:49

Might be difficult to accomplish that. Gundam doesn't have much in the way of sniper-type mobile suits. 00 and GBF are the most recent, and the vast majority of the rest are all early-UC types, like the GM Snipers, Zaku I Sniper, and Hizack.

Bonta Kun 2015-09-13 16:57

Well if your ok with just Sniper weapons then I do believe Kotobukiya make some 1/144(ish?) scaled weapon sets, last time I looked they had a couple sniper like weapons.

I do have some of the weapon sets which do fit for the most part, some might need a little adjustment to fit but nothing a tiny bit of blu tac can't fix imo;)

Chibiloli 2015-09-13 17:31

Oh, not to worry about weapons, I recieved some promotional ones, and I'm pretty sure the one I have is an R4 type Beam Rifle used by GM Snipers, I also have a beam launcher that I guess cam act as a sniping weapon, but I just want an easy to acquire unit, but I'm open to suggestions, I was thinking of just buying a Build strike and repainting it since those are all I see at the mall, kinda hard pressed to get Gunpla here in Ilocos.

If you just want HG Gundam kits that will go easy with the R4 Sniper rifle, you might wanna go with HGUC Ground Gundam from 08th MS Team or HGUC Gundams from Blue Destiny series. I think those kits are perfect for sniping weapons. Are those available in your place?

Here in Ilocos? No, but when I go to Manila for my check-up this month I can go check out some dedicated stores in Manila, I was actually considering getting a Gundam Ground type but I wanted one that can also function in space, and I've never actually seen any kits from Blue Destiny in person.

To build on Obelisk's suggestion I suggest/recommend the new EZ8 variant that came out in Build Fighters Try (since the body frame is more or less the Ground Gundam)

You could then mess around with the configuration (starting from the 3rd sensor/scouting type outfit) and swap around parts as you please, then give it the rifle you already have

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2015-09-13 23:01

^ That's a good suggestion. And it'll be more fitting to customize a kit that's supposed to be a custom kit in-universe :D.

Chibiloli 2015-09-14 09:34

Oh not again, I spent a considerable amount of time and resources buying and assembling all 3 EZ-SR's, I don't wanna make anymore, assembling the same kit over again is something I found to be quite annoying, I just want something simple with space use like maybe a Gundam MKII or even a Jegan, preferably one that's simple enough to just give a new paint job.

Bwahahaha I take that back, building the same kit 4 times in a row is definitely not in your best interests

Speaking of Jegans, what about the ECOAS Jegan? Or perhaps a custom Hazel unit which you can buy 1-2 variants and swap some of the parts/boosters?

wavehawk 2015-09-15 05:29

Highly recommend the ECOAS Jegan, if only for the goggles and "Spec Ops" look.

That is hard to believe that they aren't going to be P-Bandai Exclusives. Something is not right here. But I'm excited to see that the V2 is finally getting a MG.

Do the goggles go over the eye visor?

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2015-09-15 23:33

Wait, Bandai jumps from MG Hyaku Shiki directly to MG Kai Mass-Produced version? :twitch: Whereís the Hyaku Shiki Kai version with two gattling guns and wing binders that came before the MP version? Do they provide it as an add-on in the kit itself? If MG Kai MP is regular release, I hope MG Kai will be regular too. But maybe thatís asking too much from Bandai.

Oh, I didn't know you already built all three before :heh:. Yeah, you'd better go with a different kit.

I think they do IIRC. You can go to Dalong to make sure.

Blazer-X 2015-09-15 23:45

So... Nataku and Jesta Cannon are P-Bandai, but Amazing Exia (which never actually shows up in the form of the models) and Hyaku Shiki Kai MP (obscure MP variety much?) gets regular releases? Okay, Bandai, whatever you say...

UmmÖIím not sure what you meant by that. Amazing Exia did get a kit before this upcoming MG (HGBF Amazing Exia) and the mech itself did show up in the anime (fighting F91 & helping Sei-Reiji in the final battle).

Anyway, now that Bandai seem to be in the mood to release MG obscure MP-version, what are the chances of them releasing MG Qubeley MP in the future? Since...you know...those things are actually featured in the show :heh:.

Wait I thought the Quebeley Mk.II was nearly the exact same thing minus the funnel count (and probably different decals, though this is obviously not seen in show)?
