Oh dear...by a stroke of misguided auction sniping I'll end up with two Hrududus.

- You'll need two Hrududus. When I got mine years back, I never realized you needed two of them to create the proper Hazel Rah Second form. Missed out on getting a second. And now after i've moved house my original Hazel Rah kit is MIA (must have dropped while I was moving houses). Which is a shame, because I could've built this:

Speaking of Hazels...

While I intended my next kits to be the Murasame (because I like it and I want to do a Sahaku colors custom) and the Delta Plus (because why not?) I found out that my usual place has all three HGUC Hazel kits (Custom, Advanced, Hazel II). I'm now pondering whether I should buy yet another kit (particularly given my backlog of kits...)

wavehawk 2015-04-06 02:24

Depends on what you plan to do with them. The fun of the AoZ Hazel kits was when Dengeki Hobby was putting out the add on stuff like the Hrududu and Primrose. That's why I'm a bit sad about losing my Hazel, since it had the Primrose chest/core fighter, the Hazel II Tri-Booster, the Advanced Hazel Sniper head (which IMHO is one of the coolest and unique Gundam-type heads), the Primrose Cannon, the Hrududu Blade Rifle extensions, the Advanced Hazel sub-arms and high-heel feet. EG I made this, only in Titans colors:

EDIT: The magazine exclusives also tend to be tricky. More than once I've found that I need TWO of the same custom kit to make what I want.Two Hrududus are needed to make a Hazel Rah Second form. Two Primrose are needed to get a matching pair of the variant shoulder armor for the Hazel Owlsa. It still happens today. I got the Wing Gundam Zero Honoo add-on parts from Hobby Japan magazine--and found that I need to buy a SECOND magazine to get a pair of the feather knives shown in the illustration. FML.

Wild Goose 2015-04-06 04:07

Okay this is going to be a problem because I have no idea where I'd find those addons and I don't read Dengeki hobby. <.<

Guess I'll just finish my backlog first: Sniper K9 (dog pack, mostly), Stark Jegan 413, ReZEL Commander, Zeta Plus A1, Jesta, CCA Jegan, and fix up my Banshee to be a Full Armor Banshee Norn.

The add-ons are a limited run so ebay is probably your best bet.

Also @KCT: the sensor blad shield attachment allows you to mount two Shield Boosters, but nto in the way as illutrated, so you might need ot do some modding with that---or else use the angled shield holder from the Hrairoo kit.

Can I have a complete address? I'm at Ilocos Sur at the moment and won't be back in Cordillera till next month.

I'm aware about the part needing two Hrududus, just that landing one of them is a rather expensive venture, and two of them makes it worse since I need to deal with proxies. I bought an Advanced Hazel back in around 2006/2007 for that purpose, except I was pretty late into the party.

I got the Hrududu add-ons via YJA, eBay is a no-go for these kind of items. The problem with them is that they are very, very rare now since they're made in around 2006/2007 (typical situation where supplies simply dwindled up). By a stroke of luck I managed to snag two Primroses back then, since there's this shop near where I studied carried the Taiwanese version of DHM, when the Tł Arc forums (the only place dedicated to AoZ material as far as I recalled) informed about the release of those add-ons.

With regards to the shields, I think the point is that I gonna need the Hrairoo kit...at some point. Speaking of those attachments I'm kind of surprised why no one attempted to make a third party version of them, probably the fact that AoZ is considered to be somewhat obscure outside of Japan?

Just head on to the Maharlika shopping center, head towards the second floor via the (defunct)excalator head straight forward(the "minefield") then turn left at the end. To your immediate right you will find the shop. I recommend going there at around 2pm onwards since they are closed in the morning.

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
Finally finished RG Astrea. RG sure is very finicky. Small part that easily to fall over. other than that fun build. It certainly feel much more high quality compare to "hollow" HG. Since RG Astrea come with extra part that allow me to make F1/F2/Exia. Is really fun to swap the part to suit my taste. At the end I opt for F2 with F1 head and Exia GN Drive. Also it come with those wonderful arsenal. Cannot wait to make wonderful pose

Anybody here any good red Gunpla? Besides the Red Warrior and anything piloted by Char, would prefer if it were a gundam type and is capable of flight.

Astrea type-F sounds nice, but getting it here in the philippines may be a problem due to how screwed up the stores tend to stock, I'll go straight to the warehouse in Quiapo to check if they have them.

ehhh no. RG Astrea (normal color) is the one that require Exia. RG Astrea Type F (Red one) is stand alone. In fact it contain Red Exia part XD

Blue-kun 2015-04-09 18:47

Woo, got my Justice done! Or almost. Still need to panel line the Fatum and what not, but the build itself is done, lol. Think I'll leave it like this cause I saw this setup on this guy's blog and thought it looked rad lol.



Next up will probably be the HGUC Unicorn Destroy Mode... :heh:

Oh woops, my bad

Thanks! And oh no, haha! What kind of issues does it have? I read it was mainly sort of a brick, that at best you'd be pulling off simple shooting poses, but to be fair I'm kinda into those more than the crazy action-y ones since they look good from most angles, haha.

Or is there something more serious?

bio9205 2015-04-09 19:57

Nice Justice there. Maybe it's the all-red colour, but I'm really loving my RG Justice. Granted, the only other RG I have is the Exia, but the Justice just blows it away. I can't explain it. It's not like I'm a big fan of the Justice either, I like it but not as much as other suits.

On a side note, still waiting for my HG Transient and RG 00R pre-orders to arrive! Can't wait.
