It'd have to come with a stand as from the looks of it, it doesn't have any legs...

EDIT: I only found out there's a part missing when I got up to that particular part (it's missing the lower torso where it connects to the front and back skirts and the legs)

Also, how much is it

I had a similar problem not too long ago. When building the gun to my MG Freedom, the front barrel part broke of messing up three different parts. I was somewhat lucky in that fact that they all came from the same runner. I tried contacting Bandai but that was too no avail. The best thing to do would be to go though HLJ.com. They can re-order a runner for you. The only real downside is the waiting time since they actually wait until they get a stack of re-orders and then place them all at once so you might be waiting for a while. As a side note, I actually called up gundamstoreandmore.com and asked them what they know about that idea and the owner there( really nice guy by the way ) actually cut off the parts from a damanged model they got back and just sent them to me with my next order.

As a question to everyone else on these forums. All of you guys have been really helpful in answering my other questions so to preface that, I want to start applying the dry-stick stickers. I know the basic proceduere behind it simply is cut it out, apply tape to it so it stays in one spot and rub it in. My question is simply is there a specific tool to use and is there a generalized number of strokes to rub in on correctly or amount of time? Thanks in advance guys.

Did you intend to show it like that?

Nah but thats a idea lol I just was trying to put everyone close I gotta get the SD Destiny and it will take Strike Freedom's spot

@MrCapcom - I admit I like the bazooka variant wielding Astraea better than just two beam swords :) Is it just me, or you did not use stickers in some places, making it seem more plain because of monochromatism?

I think it'd look badass with a bazooka in one hand and a beam sword/shield in the other :)

Anyways, great model.

I'm not gonna front I don't know what monochromatism means.
And I didnt use stickers in some places because when I did the model the first time around I didnt have gundam markers and some stickers looked a bit weird so i left them off.
I like the beam swords for now I'll try the other poses when I get around to getting the other weapons built.

Thnx though

Haha, you think too much. There's really no need for any sort of 'specific tool'. You just need something sharp so it exerts pressure on the decal. You also don't have to bother about number of strokes/time and all.

Just be systematic, start from one area and move out. If you're unsure whether the decal has transferred on, just lift a portion of the decal to check without moving the decal. It's pretty straightforward. ;)

It's for real. I used their service 4 years back I think. First time is free and you can order up to 4 parts. For other orders you need to pay.

If you like wings => Force Impulse

If you like swords(Someone like me) => Sword Impulse

MrCapcom 2009-03-16 10:01

See my problem is I like both (sword & Wings) lol I just finished my Mg Destiny (few pages back) and I can't decide lol I like the colors of Force but Sword has well two huge swords lol Force still comes with one A.S.S so I dunno

But yea main reason why I got Destiny was because of the sword and wings....
I think right now only thing thats holding me back is that I can get Force Impulse MG right now and I gotta wait till what april? For Sword Impulse:uhoh:

If your shelf can spare some space.... get both! One at a time...

MrCapcom 2009-03-16 10:09

I know my shelf is getting full lol I think I can add maybe 1-3 more kits.

Buy both and combine the two together?

MrCapcom 2009-03-16 15:49

would be a waste lol just for the swords to go to force impulse

i agree just get both, and the 3rd one too when it comes out that way you have all 3 versions.


I love the RX-78 0 Gundam color, its just pure awesome, you cant beat the original RX-78 colors.

what is it ?
1/144 ? damashii ? 1/100(lol as if)

Amber.Dawn 2009-03-16 17:32

Hope it comes out as both 1/144 and 1/100. I'd buy both, it looks awesome.
Though I prefer the rollout colors.

Ok then, which color do you prefer? Red looks great on Impulse.

Also, if you like both wings and sword, then I'd honestly just get Force, tho I myself will get Sword. Force will only come with one A.S.S. but you can still make some cool poses with it.

If it comes down to a matter of sword posing, then 2 are always better than 1. Eventually I'll get both, but from what you said, I'd get Force if I were you. But I'm not you :p

Sir Dearka 2009-03-16 18:02

Ahh... so sweet not to have such dilemmas :P Speaking of red suits, I've just finished watching Gundam Origin movies and noticed one thing... The Guncannon is the first of the White Base MSes we actually see and the last to stand against the enemy/fire a beam... Makes me love it even more :D

I'm a modeling newbie here. My question is: if you paint the O Gundam with the roll out colour paint, will it completely (or close to) cover the original red/blue/yellow?

White Comet 2009-03-16 18:15

Nice RX-78 reminiscence. If they make a No Grade 1/100 or even better - a Master Great (which I doubt), I'll definitely get it.

Yes, indeed, it is a great retro design. And much was done by it during the OYW. Though I prefer the Zeon ones more, like Zaku or Doms.

cupcakes4chris 2009-03-16 18:28

So how long did it take for the seed/seed destiny master grade kits to be released after the end of each series?
Still waiting for 00 master grades.. :(

I think it takes up to two years to get a first MG of a series. I would not be surprised if we got a MG Exia news by the end of the year.

nothing's definite. Especially that it was just my guess. There might be some past instances that show otherwise ;)

Nope, without primer, the bright colors will show underneath whatever paint you use.

Use primer if you intend to paint over those colors.
