I just ordered a 1/144 HG Zaku Gunner and 1/144 FG Buster Gundam. Yeah, look at my nick. I am a Dearka freak :heh:

Also, pre-ordered the Transam Dynames and waiting for Gadessa restock. Christmas day again, folks! :]

ah?..why did you interested in FG Buster when you already got HG Buster :confused:??...

I'm not a Dearka fans, But I'm a Big fan of Verde Buster (Previously Buster before the Verde Buster introduced):D...

As an aside, I saw an article about the Entropa public art piece, and the author of the article referred to it as like an Airfix kit...

...while I first thought of a Gundam model kit!


Funny how the mind works, eh.


Oh, and I like how the Ahead comes with a pair of kill-bots - although as it happens, they are the only two pieces I've even cut from the frames yet!

I must be slipping...

That's because the phrase "Gerbera Straight" is a literal mistranslation of the "Kiku-ichimonji" (菊一文字).

Damn Fukuda for his Engrish.

C.A. 2009-01-16 22:11

What? LOL

I didn't know that. It would have also been cooler if its called Kikuichimonji.

While the ichimonji stroke is a horizontal straight slash, pointing to the quality of the blade, being able to slay in a single stroke. I didn't know Gerbera is the genus name for the sunflower, chrysanthemum family.

Damned translations.

I already got the HG Buster, but I did NOT have the FG Buster. And I am a huge Dearka/Buster fan. Just add one to one and you'll get it why I bought so much stuff. Now... Just let me see where was this Petit club Dearka... <searches through ebay>


Ah, judging from the pics, PG Astray's blade is still slightly curved. Damn... But I'd rather buy a PG Strike with PG Skygrasper beforehand. It means so much more to me as a fan of the first SEED ;)

Quick question... Has anyone built the MG Turn A? I've been thinking about getting it for a while, but I already have the basic 1/100, and I wouldn't mind knowing if it's worth the purchase?

Yes, its a wonderful model.

I was so satisfied with the model that I posted a review here last time:

I think I sounded crazy back then, probably too happy with the figure.

As to quote a badass movie character:
"Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do you?!"

That's a very cool "yo'-ass-is-grass"-pose Seraphim is pulling off there.
I like Seraphim's slender legs very much, and they make his want factor all the more higher.

MakubeX2 2009-01-17 20:52

The HCM Pro Seraphim isn't that good overall when you taken in the consieration that you need to put the head on and replace the shoulder cannon with arms to transform from Backpack mode to MS mode.

Let see if the HG fare better.

Is the robot damashii Seravee worth considering?

The same deal, head and arms needed to be placed on for Seraphim MS mode.

vektar 2009-01-17 21:54

so whats the main difference between HCM pro and Damashii?

GN0010 Nosferatu 2009-01-17 21:58

HCM-Pro is basically already built model kits. Robot Damashii is an improvement over MSIA. The Damashii figures are built to be played with.

Also, HCM-Pro is built in 1/200 scale and Robot Damashii is around the scale of 1/144. But series cost around the same price, but HCM Pro have greater articulations.

Knight_SV 2009-01-18 03:14

i'm not really like HCM-Pro though. Bandai seems more focus on releasing this and robot damashii now. I'm actually hate the color detail of both lines....

Sir Dearka 2009-01-18 06:57

I like the detail, but there is just no enjoyment. The satisfaction that comes along with assembling and displaying the Gunpla is just too great to be taken away from such people like me. I like the Robot Damashii line for its quality, but only when Code Geass is considered. Gundam was always about assembling plastic kits to me.

Knight_SV 2009-01-18 07:09

HCM-Pro and MSiA/Robot Damashii is more intended for those who lazy on build gunpla... it is for people who is not a big fan on assembling plamo...

Sir Dearka 2009-01-18 07:15

Not really. In some cases, there are no other alternatives. I bought the Code Geass Offshoot (Gawain's predecessor) ones just because there were no plastic kits for them like Burai Zero Custom or Gawain.

As for MSiA, the mobility and quality leaves much room for wishes. I never bought one and I'd never buy one). They are basically just your regular toys, so a kid can play battles with other kids.

HCM Pro is a different story. But I don't like the size of the figures.

You hit the nail on the head there. I have a few MSiA figures from back before I got into the models, and they're just action figures. swappable hands, mediocre posability, and they always came with soft rubber/vinyl/plastic/whatever weapons and parts that are always bent in a warped shape that NEVER, EVER want to be bent back to normal. Last time I checked, Zeta's Hyper Mega Launcher didn't veer to the left 20 degrees...

So yeah, unless you're buying them for a kid, not worth your time.

The good thing about them is you do not need much space to put them up for display. Great solution to those who live in small apartment.

LightningZERO 2009-01-18 07:23

But I can't justify myself to spend so much on a figure this small though...and I can't find it in my local shop too :D

Well, I won't comment on MSiA, but....as for Gundam Fix Figuration, I don't think that way...It's the only source for me to have a rare 1/144 models like Hyaku SHiki Kai, Crossbone Gundam, and Stuffs...

I luckily bought none of MSiA, but the sole look at a couple of pics on ebay gave me the idea about them. Thanks for confirmation.

Well, a couple of HCM Pros are indeed interesting. Like the combination of Destroy-Impulse and Freedom with its beam saber-pierce-through-Destroy effect. Also, theHeavyarms Gundam from Wing just scerams "buy me!" with its minigun effects. Still, to me the line is just overpriced. Just look at the HCM Pro Dynames. I love the suit, I have the GN Arms Type-D and 1/100 kit, and I intend to buy Trans-Am HG. Still, I don't find anything in the CHM Pro version that makes it worth getting.

I have a GFF Gundam Stamen with Weapon system myself and I really concur to your point of view. Now THIS line is worth the money. Proper scale, decent coloring and decal marking.

Well, there must be people investing in this line of toys, otherwise Bandai will discontinued them like they have with the FGs. And I can understand why if you take into the cramp living space like those of Japan.

Sure, I can also see why some of the people might buy it. And well, I have a big place, too ;)

Hmm no news on this delicious Masurao?

Knight_SV 2009-01-18 09:50

Pretty cool

But what's that, um, words under the name?

C.A. 2009-01-18 10:10

Attack use prototype variable form Mobile Suit.

LightningZERO 2009-01-18 10:14

I mean those 'autographs'

It's the greek letter "Zeta"

LoweGear 2009-01-18 10:25

The other letters besides that are "VMSAWRS" which is the acronym for Zeta's waverider system (Which stands for Variable Mobile Suit and Wave Rider System).

Evolve 2009-01-18 13:05

Err..
Then, why S Gundam also have this acronym?

Because it can also go Waverider.
