Does that solve the articulation or transformation issues? For me, the HGUC line seems more suited for me. You'll recall that I like the 00 MG line because it totally captures the feel of the Gundams more strongly than the HG line, but in UC, the HGUC line does an excellent job of reminding me how awesome the mobile suits are, and is lighter on the pocketbooks. I'm not a hardcore Gunpla collector by any stretch, so I pick and choose carefully to ensure I get the kits I really like and not spend on kits I might regret buying later :eyebrow:

You don't have to apologise to anyone if the local forumtroll misunderstands you...
I think you're well aware that suiton's positive contributions are few if any, so pay him no mind.
Anyway, like the others say, a destroy mode FA unicorn will surely come, the question is if you're willing to wait for what could be some time...

By that time I am usually already driving to work because I have a 1.5h commute. :frustrated: (Also dutch here)

being a unicorn fan that almost collect different types of scales kits & figurines, for MG size the best is still GFFN Unicorn. MG Unicorn transformation makes the kit flimsly
HG kit is still looks good in terms of proportion even though i have Super HCM Unicorn which i have yet to open it
Robot damashii....smaller & if you want to play with it as the articulation is a lot better than HG
SD well....cute i say
I also have the GFF Full Armor Unicorn Destroy mode which yet to open also

I don't have any experience with Gundam product other than the model kits, but the GFF FA Unicorn always interested me. I would love to know what you think about it^^

On an unrelated note, if HLJ keeps up this super slow pace I'm gonna look for a different store to order my models from... It's been a week since I ordered my MG Jesta, they took my money within 24 hours of my purchase and they still haven't even send it out yet. Or did I miss some sort of Japanese holiday? O_o

damn, that's tough. But for me this means that I haven't slept at all last night. I had to wake up for class, which started at 8:45, and figured those two short hours of sleep I might have gotten would only tire me out. So yeah, I feel fine right now *twitch twitch*

Also: Nice to see another dutchy here, where are you from?

^ Nice comparison between HG & RG Destiny. Just like I thought, the HG's feet look a lot better. What were Bandai people smokin' when they made the mold? Those feet almost ruined a nice kit.

That said I'm waiting for RG Destiny Deactive or Heine. Not a fan of the traditional color (There's MG Destiny EBM for that).

The harch reality of life, unless you take 2 weeks vacation :D

But even with vacation there is little time to do gunpla construction :(

Alot of dutch speaking people here it seems. Kan het niveau alleen maar ten goede komen ;)

Anybody noticed that the powerpack for perfect strike which come with the new MG strike need to be painted white? That's a letdown :(

FUUUUCK! So I ordered it right at the beginning of the Golden Week! XD
Oh man, I totally forgot about that. The Golden Week already screwed me over last year :D
Oh well, sorry HLJ, I still <3 U!

A bit unlucky, I guess. ;)

Butagami 2013-05-08 05:11

Looking at the destinies side by side (RG and HG) the HG looks way cleaner. I'm not too big a fan of armor riddled with panellines, thought that was more a late '90s, early '00s thing...

maknaedik 2013-05-08 05:33

Anyhow, I've been reading things that the reason for Destiny's clown feet is because it directly came from RG Strike? Can anyone confirm this?

Since they love to reuse parts and concepts from older models that would make sense.

Personally I don't like the RG Destiny at all though. The only RG that I own right now is the first one, the RX-78-2. I was thinking about getting the RG Strike and Skygrasper but... Meh. I already have two 1/100 scale Strikes, that's enough for me^^

How can that be?:confused: Strike's feet are slim and sexy, while Destiny's feet are abomination.

This kit is backpack heavy & seriously need a stand as the legs are pretty weak (gotta blame the feet)

Im hoping for Heine ver as i like the orange combination

I just got a message that my order for the MG Jesta will arrive next week! And it will arrive at just the right time, my on-the-job-training ends this coming sunday. I've been dying to build something after 2 tiring months of just working at a hotel.

If you have the money, I suggest you take the "Red Party" as those are a bunch of excellent kits compared to the "Black Party" of yours ;).

maknaedik 2013-05-08 17:42

RED PARTY because I'm biased towards red colored kits, haha! Besides, I have all of those except the 1/144 Astraea Type-f, I only have its 1/100 version.

Well, the Seed red kits that you chose are GOOD special mention is red frame. Everybody knows that it's one of the best :)

Here are some other options:
1/100 Saviour
MG Epyon EW
MG Sinanju
1/144 HGUC Sazabi
The 1/144 Red kits from Gundam AGE if you like the designs

And all the Char kits for that matter XD (besides Hyaku)

Do not make posts about other posters, specially if you are only doing it to mock them. PLEASE drop this issue already and please stop making posts about it.

suiton629 2013-05-09 10:35

I would go with:

MG Aegis
MG Sinanju OVA Ver.
MG Epyon EW

That would be more than enough to help you deal with your pre-tsunami-exam time. =D You don't want your wallet to later regret going GunPla crazy since knowing Bandai, they're bound to make a lot of big announcements soon at the Shizuoka Hobby Show.

derrickmc63 2013-05-09 12:04

so after about 3 months of waiting for the season to change and get sunny, i finally finished nu ver ka and it is probably the best damn thing on my shelf right now. The build was excellent and posing the kit is a breeze(in my opinion). Now that i finished the kit, sinanju stein will be next on my build list.
Helios i would go with the red party
sword impulse and red frame are awesome

Skye629 2013-05-09 20:25

On a gunpla related note, how easy is it to get good even angles with putty? I think I may have sanded too much off the face mask of my HG AGE-FX getting rid of that damn beak line (overall though the kit is coming along great, replaced the yellow with silver as well as some other parts, it have a more hi-nuish color palette now, blue, white, silver, purple)

So far I don't have any experience with putty, but if you leave the "beak line" alone without panel-lining it, I think it will barely visible on the HG. I had the same issue with HG Destiny. I don't like the pattern on the face-mask near the chin. I just leave it alone and it's barely visible ;).

if you putty it, then you must paint it right? Unless you want to leave a small gray pint on it.

Im under the impression that the putty Im using is white, from what I saw from a Vegeta8259 video, but I have not used it personally yet

Well you can use white, but I hope that it's close, or better if it's the same, kind of white.
