Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

And they've already undermined the Re/100 line with that NG 1/100 Barbatos w/ inner frame which seems confusing.

Macross Frontier DX Chogokin Figures

When I was a kid, a friend of mine gave an original Max blue VF-1 transforming Valkyrie toy which for the time was a fantastic rendition of the mechs. So I went on a shopping spree recently and ended up getting several of the 1/60 Macross Frontier DX Chogokin toys from Bandai. I was not interested i...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

The more I see of the RE GP04, the more I'm disappointed by lack of detail and the more I want the NG 1/100 line to come back with its near MG quality but without the inner frame.

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

I've watched 15 episodes, and quite frankly, I don't care about anything happening, which ironically is about the same feeling I got from Eureka 7. The MS designs are just painful to look at and the animation has not gotten any better. It would seem that Build Fighters is getting the better effort.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I think they've reached the point where all instances of mobile suits and battles in Gundam series need to be CG now.

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

I just got the 3rd party PG Tactical Arms for the PG Red Frame. This thing is pretty massive. You could stab someone with it.

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

I am underwhelmed by quality of the animation. They're doing a half assed job on it. Really? Tomino's storyboarding might be a bit strange and sometimes clunky, but no way is the animation "half assed" for this one. I think not only is it clunky, ep 3's was especially sloppy, the animation has been...

Re: Best sites to buy Gunpla/MSiA / information

Someone on ebay is selling a 3rd party made 1/100 2x Caletvwlch kit for both Red and Blue Frame. I bought two and I have to say the quality is pretty good. It's not a resin kit, it's plastic and molded in color so painting isn't required. The kit has a mount for a 3rd sword if you want to go all out...

Re: Why no F91 love?

Also consider that as far kit design goes, the MG F-91 and Crossbone kits aren't that great. They came out when Bandai was attempting to go polycapless on their MGs, with mixed results. They're not as bad as the MG V kits, but they're still kinda bland and unimpressive.

Metal Build vs Master Grade?

Anyone here have both Metal Build and MG of either the Freedom or 00 and can post a comparison of pluses and minuses between the versions?

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XI

Hopefully the MG Providence is after Aegis. The NG 1/100 was whole unsatisfying.

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-6

Great. We get another Kira, not wanting to kill the people trying to kill him. Not again.

I also thought the reason Asemu joined the pirates was oddly naive, since the reason in the manga was to fight the vagan and corrupt elements in the federation unhindered.

Re: Bandai moving backwards with kit designs?

Jak Crow: May you post your verdict of the MG Duel Gundam? It appears to be better than the Gundam AGE-1 which was co-released in the back in February. I hope that the Bee-Craft MG Seed line reusing their frames won't suffer the same fate as the Wing EW and Gundam AGE ones. The Duel is pretty good,...

Bandai moving backwards with kit designs?

In the past few weeks, I've put together several MG kits; V Gundam, 00 Seven Swords, Qant, Delta Plus, Heavy Arms, GN-X, and the Duel. I've put together dozens of MGs over the years. While it's all well and fine for each kit to be different, there are multiple issues that Bandai has actually introdu...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread Mk III

At least this series doesn't have the same tired "we just want peace" / we shouldn't fight / shoot the cameras and weapons only crap of SEED, and it doesn't have the main character whining constantly about war and killing like in Unicorn. It's a war. I will give it props for these.

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk IV

I've gotten real sick of the "supernatural" nature of the psyco-com. Just shoot at each other and be done with it.
