No, he didn't. He used the skeleton frame of the PG Wing Zero Custom. The cannons on the backpack are the Buster Rifles.

Got a reproduction HGUC Dendrobium http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y20...ndrobiumBX.jpg and a RE<AMATU>2 :D

Shiro Amada 2006-09-21 15:26

YAY! More 08th MS Team MASTERGRADES! and a F91 HARRISON ( I love the coloring, although I hope this one includes a base also!)

These I will diffenitly pick up along with a MG Crossbone!

Potatochobit 2006-09-21 17:20

nice. I've seen a built HG Dend. before but be sure to post pics of when your building it. i didnt really like the MG crossbones. they seem pretty thin and dont really have any weapon features. i havnt seen any pictures of the cloak if they have that though.

o woopee, an F91 ver blue angels :heh:

the MG GM sniper looks good, although a recolor it has that power generator thingy.

right now, im disappointed with the IWSP. Even the Ex-S gundam looks like it can balance better.

Yeah, since I'm kinda a snapper, the GM Recolor with the generator/coolant thing is good because I dont have an airbrush and dont have to get the old GM and paint it. I think that the f91's face and stuff looked crappy in white, I dunno why, but the pics at dalong.com look pretty bad, which is a shame because I love the F91 and VSBRs.
I'd take my Ex-S over an....ugh....SEED suit anyday!

cyw1988 2006-09-21 21:10

cerebus bucue!!! i am so looking forward to that... as for stargazer... dunno have to see more haha... F91 looks wierd in blue.. =X and Strike IWSP? Thank god i didn't preorder it... it looks so plain. Unless I switched over my rouge aile pack with the strike's IWSP.... Hmm....

kct 2006-09-21 21:20

The IWSP is still in prototype mode, hence explains it's 'plainness'.

Actually, all of the above models are prototypes, since most of the parts are just greyish.

1/144 GP03D + Neue Ziel Boxset (November Release!!!)

K Guys, If you were to get 3 PGs, which 3 would they be?
My dad is paying a visit to Hong Kong, and ya know, kits are way cheaper over there, so I'm planning to get [at least] 3 PGS:
one being Wing Zero Custom, since it's like the flashiest gundam ever released.
2nd one will probably be the Strike Freedom Lightning Edition...not really sure though
and the 3rd...well...uuh Zeta Gundam looks really cool and its some ingenious work...but the GP01-FB looks really cool too...
In other words: it would be cool if some guys that actually own these kits, would tell me if they thought they made the right/wrong decision by buying __insert Name_...
BTW: Dalong is real cool, but I can't see their review score...on let's say the zeta gundam...
PS: SF Lit Edition doesn't have the PG mark on the box, so its...eh less ''perfect''?

okokokokokokokokok.

you take a 1/144 orchis, in all its 28000 yen glory, and box it with another 1/144 kit potentially 20000 yen on its own? no one's gonna buy that! wtf!

am I misunderstanding this? plz yes

The SF Lightning Edition is not a PG, it just is 1/60 scale. It has "MG Engineering" in that is uses an armor "plate" system like many MG kits do, but the kit is in no way even MG quality. It's basically an HG kit, with some MG features, with a PG size and light gimmick. It's a decent kit, but its in no way a great kit.

SNT1 2006-09-22 12:33

may I recommend many MG's over 3 big PG's?

to tell you the truth, I think their quality and detail level for their sizes are just about equal really, but MGs are alot more fun since there are so many of them (gotta catch em all!) and quite possibly just-plain-better in some cases. i know this is an opinion, but the Zeta 2.0 GP01(fb) and the WZC MGs are much better looking than the PG versions.

personal recommendations aside, get a PG Mk-II, a WZC and a strike. :D attention grabbers in any way.

Hmm k:P But the MGS are too small imo and the detail lvl ain't that high[I got the WZ Ver. Ka]
and with strike, you mean strike freedom or the 1/60 strike with all the weapons?
@That other dude:P: Ehm, so, would the non-lightning edition of Strike Freedom be a better choice and what do you mean with ''hg-quality''?

@Everybody:D : Damn the Zeta is really a great kit, it can even transform, Wzc can't really do much.... Ain't there anyone on this board with one? If so, tell me if you still like him. And the new 1/100 saviour is real cool too DX
PS: Ain't there a site with personal opinions on model kits? {I know Dalong...but it's korean? and MAHQ has got like 10 reviews...}

SNT1 2006-09-22 13:09

I meant the PG strike. or strike rouge.

Well, there is no non-Lightning Edition 1/60 Strike Freedom that I am aware of. As far as the quality, I mainly meant it's proportions. It isn't as streamlined as an MG or PG would be, its a bit stubbier like a High Grade kit is. Also, unlike a Master Grade or Perfect Grade, it has a smaller number of parts, though it is a bit closer to an MG in terms of parts count. I suppose it could really be modded into a much better kit, but if you intend to simply snap build likw I did when I built mine, it ends up being decent, but could have been better.

Shinji103 2006-09-22 13:14

I gotta agree with SNT1. Not only do you avoid paying 150-200 bucks for a single model (sure the detail and number of gimicks and open-able armor is great, but the price tag....ugh), but you still get a great model for much less if you buy the MG instead the PG. And with Strike, I personally think the excessive number of detail lines on the PG make it ugly. :/ The MG doesn't have that problem.

In the end though, it does come down to opinion. Just giving my 2 cents.

SNT1 2006-09-22 13:18

I think the lines on Strike are acceptable, since they are actually functional gaps, with moving plates and sh1t....unlike the 1/100 gundam X lines and the MG RX-78 OYW.

the price tag isnt that heavy in hong kong, actually, my dad had a business trip to HK few years back and he picked me up a PG RX78 for 74 bones. But, by that logic, the typical size MGs should also be around 20 bucks :P

What about those gundams with the ''extra finish''? I think I read somewhere that you'll see scratches on them easily? They do look real...different.
PS: The Zeta Gundam is really a ingenious bit of engineering.

The problem with the extra finish kits is that either you leave the sprue connection marks and no remove the seams, which gives you the extra finish "sparkle" but seams and "scars". If you seal the seams and sand away the nubs, the extra finish gets all messed up. Considering the Extra Finish ones cost a little more than the originals, it really isn't worth it either way IMO.

If you check out Dalong.net, he built some of the Extra Finish editions and you can see the results of a straight snap built.

Thanks a lot:D
Btw, do you have a MG/PG Zeta gundam?

And will somebody that owns a PG Zeta/ PG GP01/FB /PG Wing Zero Custom please tell me their opinions on them...
I read that the PG Wing Zero Custom wasn't really as movable as on the pics...or something..

Potatochobit 2006-09-22 15:19

if your going to get a PG kit it should the zeta gundam or the GPO1FB, mkII is ok though but the MG mkII is also done real well.

one of the big differences on zeta gundam kits is the nose shield proportions. anything less than MG it is way off.

Shiro Amada 2006-09-22 15:40

I am getting the Perfect Grade GP01 for Chirtmas, so I'd give you a review then, but I'm sure thats too late, right?

Yeah, I have the MG Zeta 2.0 and I enjoyed building it a lot. A friend has the 1.0 and he glued his in place so it wouldn't fall apart. I might buy a 1.0 and build it as the Waverider to display with my Zeta in MS form.

Shiro Amada 2006-09-22 15:56

Also, anyone know anywhere (perferably NA) that has the H2YM Gouf in stock? Everywhere I look only has the Rick-Dom (which isn't bad, but I prefer Goufs)

Looks more like 1/400.

G Collections are always in 1/400 scale. Better do your research before posting the pix up, labeling it wrongly and misleding people.
