I'm interested in getting a MG Zeta Gundam Version 2 so I wonder how's the transform system? And does it cause the figure to have a weak structure?

The Virtue Gundam is suppose to have "secrets", so Sunrise may be delaying its release as a kit until the Gundam actually used most of its hidden equipment on broadcast TV.

Master Grade Destiny Special edition boxart

Is that 'extreme burst' something written below destiny? Much more attractive than strike freedom's full burst boxart.

More details on about the 1/100 Exia gundam have been publish on Pam's Hompage

@ Vallen Chaos Valient:

Virtue is slated for December release though. And of course, it'll logically have to follow after Dynames and Kyrios, since it is GN-005 :heh:

@ subaruhess:

Should be noted that you can't hotlink to pam.jp unfortunately :heh:

Pictures of interest from there though:

Is the special MG Destiny a limited run thing again? it better not be!

Oh, I remember seeing that they are gonna release 1/60 for the Gundams 00s...any news on that anyone?

duotiga 2007-10-11 08:19

subaruhess 2007-10-11 08:36

I have it. The only big problem is that the wing struts, which require rotations and folding when transforming, seem a bit too stiff. I accidentally damaged them so I've never transformed the Zeta more than once. Otherwise, the overall structure seems reasonably strong.

Well the box art of the 1/100 Exia looks good, will get it (al the GN Suits) and eventually the MG offcourse (1,5 year later ;)

LightningZERO 2007-10-11 11:36

I don't really enjoy the 1/100 box art. Like Seed, I think thr 1/144 box art is a lot better

Although MG is the best

dagr81 2007-10-11 15:59

the only gundam there that has me all hiper is MG Unicorn

duotiga 2007-10-11 18:24

Aparantly...the red parts for Unicorn Gundam are clear

dagr81 2007-10-11 19:53

the onely thing that would make this kit look even better is if there was a button to change to the modes

Fafnir 2007-10-11 23:13

Damn... I thought that I was going to buy Turn A soon, and that would be my last model, but damn... Unicorn just looks too cool...

LightningZERO 2007-10-12 00:10

Does Unicorn's head support transformation? If it is, I'm worry of its fragility...

aikming 2007-10-12 00:34

the MG Unicorn looks cool and each part can be slided for the internal appearance. Maybe Bandai can make a "lightning" version in the future so that the internal would glow with red beam.

Does anyone here buys HCM Pro? Are they worth getting, and are they quite detailed?

Thanks, but is that a trustworthy site? I've read some bad stuff about how people never receive their products, or that the shipping is messed up. I'm always kind of cautious about buying overseas.

beamknight87 2007-10-13 15:58

I just bought the HG 1/100 Infinite Justice Gundam... but it is too much pink for my liking -_-, guess I will have to customize it a little bit...

Question about an Ebay auction
 
Hi, I'm new obviously and I've just recently began to gain interest in Gundam. I've seen some of the model kits and have been very impressed so i thought maybe I would start collecting them. I came across one that looks awesome on Ebay and was wondering what you all think. Is it a good model kit? About how much should I expect to pay for it. Since I'm new to this I have no idea where values stand. I picked up some of the action figures but these model kits look really detailed and cool. Any advice for a noob would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the one I really like.

Looking at Amazon's site, a seller there is offering this kit for US$15.99 excluding shipping. I don't have this exact HG kit, but wasn't too impressed with the quality with the earlier HG 1/144 "Gundam W" models. Parts didn't stay on when posed and so on. It's a fairly intro level model kit and good for practice, IMHO.

This EBay seller, though, is charging a lot for shipping, I think. US$7.50 is a lot for what should just be a pretty light and small box. If I was bidding on this kit, I would not go higher than 3 dollars. It has been a long time since I last bid on EBay, but if there are fees for buyers, you might be better off getting it from Amazon instead.

Personal opinions, of course. :)
