In need of some suggestions. I've recently started tinkering with some of my recent Gunpla and decided to do some customizing. I've made two kitbash concepts:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
As you may have noticed, both customs have the ECOAS Jegan as the base, which is actually intentional. I'm hoping to work on the second concept - which is intended to be a flight-type Gunpla. So far I have these Gunpla in hand:
- ECOAS Jegan
- Jesta Cannon
- Byarlant Custom
- Hazel Custom
- TR-5 Hrairoo

Also I have some unassembled Gunpla in my backlog:
- Mega Shiki
- EZ-Sr
- Delta Kai

Lets clarify some things first to help us help you

1. Are you willing to go buy additional kits?

2. Are you sticking to kitbashes? Or are you open/capabe of modding/more extensive customs?

3. Do you want to stick to primarily UC/Build fighter parts?

4. By "Flight type", are you referring to a machine equipped to fly under gravity? And what sort of flight type? A unit loaded out with thrusters/fuel to do so? Or a simple flight pack add on like the Aile Strike?

5. Does it have to complement your current 2 projects? (Does it have to have a Jegan base?)

6. Is it safe to assume you are going to paint everything over?

1. Not at this point. But I'm open to suggestions for future sprees.

2. Kitbashes only. Along with occasional switching of polycaps.

3. As of now, yes. Main reason is AU Gunpla tend to be smaller than UC's. But of course, I'm open to differences.

4. I'm... actually sort of torn for this part. Though I would favour a unit that can fly under its own power, under gravity.

5. It does not have to complement. But it needs to have a Jegan base.

6. Yes.

Ok, one last question I failed to ask:

By "second concept" does that mean you are going to build 2 units? Or are you only going with one design you like the best?



As for your "flight concept", oddly enough your second one actually falls into that category very well IMO, since it takes from the Byarlant, which is known for its ability to fly under gravity without any assistance. On top of that it got plenty to thrusting power from the parts you used.

Another angle is to have parts swapped onto the Jegan from the TR-5 Hrairoo, which is also another unit capable of atmosphere flight, though I imaging this will be much harder on a kitbash level since the Hrairoo is a transforming MA, and I would assume the build is much more different

Im not that familiar with the Hazel's and their capabilities, so I cant recommend any of their parts or boosters atm

Also for the Shiki and Delta, those are probably mostly going to be left to the side imo, their parts are not quite as compatible as the other kits listed. Out of the bunch, the Jegan, Jesta, EZ-8, and Hazel's have the best synergy, and none are quite a "flight type" aside from the SR, which was actually shown to be quite capable of flight unlike the otehrs in BFT

StratoSpear 2015-01-20 04:58

I'm going with the design that suits best actually. Those two pictures on top are showing the same Jegan. Indeed using parts from flight-type Gunpla is the idea...

...then there's weaponry. Another thing is the cringeworthy absence of knee guards on the second concept. Not sure what I could fit there :heh:

Still, I appreciate the advice :)

I doubt that. Both the G-Self and G-Arcane are labelled Gundam G-Self and Gundam G-Arcane. I guess the Gaeon isn't supposed to be a Gundam.

Meanwhile, the G-Lucifer is indeed considered a Gundam, despite looking literally nothing like one.

so does that make it the first appearance of a Zaku styled mono-eyed type Gundam? (inb4 Freedom Gundam is supposed to look like a GuAIZ jokes)

I guess the Legilis might also count prior to Zeheart awakening its full ability

wavehawk 2015-01-21 06:58

I didn't count the Legilis because it's technically not a Zaku-style Monoeye.

Woops missed that part



Another then could be the Destiny Impulse in one of its configurations

Patriot's Blade 2015-01-21 07:38

makes me wish the Zeta Zaku was capable of retaining the transformation gimmick :heh:

Skye629 2015-01-22 19:53

Fuck, that Zeta II Travis Kirkland Custom is too good to pass up......welp there goes some more money

Also here is your chance to get a HGUC Pale Rider without breaking your bank account getting that game (Albeit its the Heavy Equipment Ver.)

1900 or so yen I believe, once the shipping and other stuff factor in say......$25-$35 USD max?

Worth it IMO for an exclusive thats not just a straight up recolor, and comes with some pretty cool accessories

And its nowhere near the price of the special edition version that comes with the video game

Talking about the Pale Rider btw

Asuras 2015-01-23 01:18

The cover arts look gorgeous. :love:

Blue-kun 2015-01-23 09:34

Took long enough, but I finally did it! And so, against some people's advices on getting the RG Freedom or not as my first kit because I specifically wanted a Freedom, I went ahead and dd it, lol. God help me, hopefully things won't end in disaster.

I guess I'll spend a good chunk of time reading those guides people linked before and try to not mess it up when putting it together. Grabbed some tools too, and specifically those GM-01/02/03 markers in order to hopefully panel line (and not do a terrible job).

Any recommendations for a crazy man such as myself and stuff I should take into account when it finally gets there? haha.

Tormenk 2015-01-23 09:51

Go slow and take your time. Half the joy in gunpla lies in assembly and seeing how it all comes together. That plus you wouldn't want to break any piece of the RG frame parts and have a loose and crippled joint in the completed model.

RG 00 Raiser

:love::love:

It also seems to come with parts to convert it to the GN Condenser type.

Skye629 2015-01-24 02:55

Rejoice G-Reco grunt fans! Here is your HG Caitsith!

Since the only difference between the GN Drive type and the condenser type is... Well only the drive and condenser; I would expect them to be included. Two condensers alone would make a hard sell for a P-Bandai exclusive conversion kit.

wavehawk 2015-01-24 19:14

I'm holding off buying the RG Wing Zero only because I'm saving up for the 00 Raiser. If Bandai then releases a P-Bandai 00 Raiser Seven Swords, it will seriously P!$$ me off.

Wild Goose 2015-01-25 22:55

Daaaaayum the Pale Rider looks good, and I do want it, for all that it's basically a GM Sniper II that got the Hazel treatment (grunt unit souped up to be a Gundam).

In the meantime I totally am happy as a clam with my GM Sniper K9. Teh ossums. I might actually get another one...

Well that was quick, didn't Bandai say a few weeks ago it was up to fan response? Guess we made an impression.:heh:

Riku186 2015-01-27 00:05

So any tips for building a RG, I just got my first one.

HGBF Transient Gundam :eek:

Looks like it'll be using a completely new mold instead of being based off the HG00 Exia, as evidenced by its joints.

I'm seriously considering getting another Sniper K9 at this point...

Dark Matter Exia's Box-Art looks slightly fan-art-ish. But very cool nonetheless.

Hi Nu Vrabe looks awesome as expected.

I'm just glad we don't get another "Gundam pointing a gun" as MG cover :D

Skye629 2015-01-28 06:36

We all saw it coming once we saw the design lol

However its in production, obviously for a working transformation

Its not

The fanbase would be pissed as hell lol

And the amount of work for such a kit does not make it a P-Bandai Exclusive, thats reserved for recolors/slightly modified units
