Seriously, how are the HG 1/144 series? I already pre-ordered the trans-am 00 Raiser, but it's practically my first 1/44 model kit since 10 years ago when I first bought the 1/44 Epyon. Boy, was it shitty. It was so flimsy, loose, and crap. I totally regret buying it. Based on everyone who owns the current 1/144 HG series, how are they in terms of build quality, poseability, and sturdiness? Thanks.

Building Quality ✓✓✓✓ - they're easy to build, don't take a long time, and look great unpainted. If you want them to look special, panel line. Extra special? Paint them. Not hard.

Posability ✓✓✓✓ - with the 00 series HG 1/144s, you can duplicate basically any pose from the anime, if not more.

Sturdiness ✓✓✓✓✓ - pieces don't fall apart, the model itself can stand without tipping.

The 00 1/144 HG series is really good. But if you are looking for all the accessories of some gundams(ex.dynamis pistols, 00 shields, beam parts for beam sabers) you may have to buy multiple kits. Articulation wise there top notch. Articulation doesnt get much better than the 00 raiser. Its on par if not better than most master grades. Its pretty sturdy too.

Amber.Dawn 2009-03-25 02:13

Yeah, the newer models, particularly the HG 1/144's, are greatly improved. I found this out myself as I was building my little Deathscythe after having built the Sword Impulse. The difference in quality is amazing. Newer models have better articulation, are more detailed, are made from better quality plastic, and I forget what else.....

Buy new HG! Buy eet! Buy eet!

Ohhh, current....well, I'd expect the quality of 00's models to be just as good, if not better, than that of Seed.
Don't have any 00 models yet, only interested in Arche and Susanoo.

LightningZERO 2009-03-25 02:17

I don't think you really need to paint or even do panel lining on Trans Am models. I think they look perfect that way

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-03-25 03:29

I wonder what would be the better 00 Damashii exclusive.

The Advanceed GNX or the Exia Repair?

I say Exia Repair cause I can feel it's presence...it'll be coming, and soon.

MrCapcom 2009-03-25 09:25

Has anyone ordered from hobbylinkjapan recently and live on the East Coast? I wanted to know what was the shipping like. I want to buy Sword Impulse MG and Figma Saber Lily (I can't find her anywhere else)

LightningZERO 2009-03-25 09:54

Regnant is gonna cost a ton!

Tormenk 2009-03-25 09:56

If it weighs a ton, it must cost a ton. :uhoh: (:p)

Godarnit I would kill to have it as a HG 1/144 kit.

Okamidum 2009-03-25 11:18

Regnant needs to come out with a 1/144 kit.... :(

Poor 00....

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-03-25 15:54

I must say, that the Damashii line is the best thing to ever happen to Gundam figures.

C.A. 2009-03-25 15:58

Hmmm I'm getting interested to Robot Damashii as well seeing their latest releases.

Anyone can make a comparison between Robot Damashii and Revoltech?

vektar 2009-03-25 16:12

Seeing all those nice looking Robot Damashii toys makes me want to give up on gunpla and just get already built nice looking things like that.

Sir Dearka 2009-03-25 16:17

Nah... I've seen a couple of damashiis but somehow I don't feel like they are worth their price... I buy them only when there is no other option like the mechas from Code Geass. I'd rather get a decent MG in 1/100 than a Robot Damashii toy which is just.. small :P And often less detailed. Not mentioning their poseability is not that good. Of course, I am not counting Regnant which is just huge and probably won't make it to the 1/100 line. I love it :)

Ypocaramel 2009-03-25 16:24

I'd get Robot Damashii for my kids. But I don't really need action figures to pose and play with - I want to create, to pour my heart into constructing, painting and lining and modding something that is my vision of a Gundam. And Damashii are sturdy and posable, but don't have all the mechanical gimmicks MGs have.

I'm personally not a fan of Revoltech. Their joints have a wide range of movement, but pop out too often. They do have many figures which are unattainable in other lines though.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-03-25 20:09

Man, to be covered in moss like that...00 Gundam must have been sitting there for a few years.

Rising Dragon 2009-03-25 20:16

Whoever did that model needs to do the same for the Arios, Cherudim, Seravee, and 0-Raiser.

Okamidum 2009-03-25 20:39

Cherudim is gonna need to be drilled over and over to get those hole effects :D

Sir Dearka 2009-03-25 20:39

Just assembled my Garazzo. I love its design. Now I am waiting for Anew's Gadess to receive a HG treatment ^^
