Not really fond of the back skirt on the Proto Zero, maybe just cause it's a little bland.
But other than that I really do quite like the look of it all and the flight mode looks great.

But dat sexy Gold Frame!
Where's my MG GOLD FRAME!?

The bird mode of the Proto Zero looks good and massive. I hope it hold itself together well in the final product. Also, I notice that Bandai still can’t pull off Wing Zero’s “foot sliding into legs when in Bird-mode” mechanism in MG (even though they can do it with the HG kits). Meh, never mind. Might as well perfected the mechanism before they release the true MG Wing Zero (I’m still hoping here).

I like that now we can have a model of Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Ghina custom (without the high-heels :D).

I do like it as well but I would still have prefered the regular TV version^^ But this is better than nothing I guess!
As for the neo bird mode... Naa. Not a fan of that. I don't like that the back just has the legs sticking out like that. Almost all transforming suits have that kind of design and I just can't get warm with it.

MG Wing gundam did a good job in my opinion. It can function well as both, birdmode and MS. It looks like the proto will pull it off as well. The real question is... Are they going to recycle the old MG inner frame(MG Wing zero), on this kit?

Also I agree with you on the 3.0. It's cool to build the inner frame. It does take a lot of patience though. I wouldn't want to have to build the 3.0 or MG Nu Ver KA as my first kit... lol

The old 1/100 HG and the 1/144 could only do that because they had to completely give up on making the foot poseable. I still remember my old 1/144 having horrid ankle movement, and unfortunately the 1/100 uses a similar mechanism.

From the pic, the MG Wing Zero looks like it changes the mechanism so the foot simple collapses unto itself like with the Wing Gundam, and then it retracts inside the leg.

Speaking of the Wing Gundam:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
RIGHT IN MY NOSTALGIAS ;-;

The MG Wing is nice, but I really do want it in 1/144 afterall.

I wish they had had this shoulder position on the MG Wing. It just looks far more badass.

Sorry, I didn't see any MG Wing Zero in any pic. All I see is a MG Wing Zero-wannabe called Proto Zero :cool:.

Let's hope that the yellow parts aren't stickers :upset:.

Given the color separation on the HGxx (AU kits). I highly doubt that they are stickers

Yeah MG Strike RM is badass...

Aannnnndddd the HG Amatsu with the gold (non puke variety?) is a P-Bandai Exclusive...

Go figure.........

The standard release one leaves alot to be desired in the gold......

Looking at it more optimistically at least we have both options in HG.......

Ooooohh! Valvrave! How is that kit?

AGE-1 with Sparrow shoulders? Nice. Is that a purple Zedas in the back?

I used to have a shelf like yours, but I found over time the dust REALLY built up after a month or so

Have since switched it out for a glass display case (steel/metal frame) with lighting at the top, I highly suggest this if you can afford one (approx $75-90 for a decent one? Higher end ones with wood costs more). I also like them as the dimensions I chose takes up less room (taller, by eyeing it about 17"x17" and 6' tall)

How were you displaying before btw? Sitting on the desk?

How do I post personal pics on here guys? Think its about time I showed off a bit of what I got

Much akin to a high-end HG kit, but with lots of extras. Several clear effect parts, a stand, scale pilot figure, and a ton of weapons. Very nice. However, I built it alongside my friend who hadn't done any gunpla before, and he struggled even with me helping him.

Yep, that's the AG section, haha. The AGE-1 is based off a HG custom of an 'AGE-1 Kai' that I saw somewhere; It has Spallow's shoulders and knife, G-Exes legs and rifle. And that is indeed a purple Zedas!

I would really like to get a glass display case one day [the ones Games Workshop usually use in their storefronts really attract me, and they're commercially available], but as I say, this one was free, so it'll do me for now. :p

As of now, my Gunpla collection is split between;
*A bookshelf in my old room at my parents' place
*Shelving in my bedroom
*The shelves you see here
*Some in boxes due to lack of room
Currently my bedroom shelf looks like this;

Good old Photobucket works for me.

Providenceangle 2013-07-25 16:15

Easy, just take a picture of your collection, upload it to picture-hosting sites (photobucket, imgur, etc), display your pic with the said site, copy the addres and post it here using the "insert image" command. You can also use Animesuki's "photo album" feature to host your pic if you don't mind the size limitation. Here's one example from my asuki album:
