Re: What can be expected in the near future, as far as 2.0's

SInce HGs have been brought up...what I would really like to see are HGUCs for the Gouf Custom and maybe Gouf Flight Type I'd like to see more ZZ suits, personally. That series has barely been tapped at all in HGUC. Been waiting for ZZ Gundam in HGUC myself. The way they're cooking 144's nowadays, ...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch & Rumors VIII

You're misunderstanding the "Revise" tag on the MG Blue Frame. It's not a model kit tag like "Trans Am Color Version" or something, it's the name of the actual mobile suit variant. I think he got the use of the "Revise" tag, and he actually raises a very good point in that, let's say should Bandai ...

Re: Issues with 1/144 Sword Strike

Part of the instruction manual for the 1/144 Sword Strike shows that you need to remove the triple pegs on the inside of the shoulder armor (around the slot where the shoulder peg on the upper arm of the Strike should go into). Sadly, it won't work for the HG 105 Dagger because its upper arm is thic...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch & Rumors VIII

I was casually exploring Dalong (haven't going there for a while), looking at VS Astray kits, I'm surprised to find out that Gale Strike is taller than the old 1/100 Aile Strike (the comparison is at the bottom of the page). Does this mean that Gale isn't exactly a remold? Check the review. There's...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch & Rumors VIII

Personally, I don't see the appeal of PGs. The biggest thing PGs have going is their oh-so-wonderful inner frame, but like quasadra, I'd never intend to look at it once the kit's put together anyway, and the ones in MGs give more than enough flexibility and poseability, particularly the farther ahe...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch & Rumors VIII

These would fulfill your wildest SEED backpack fantasy. I don't see a way to slap Buster Striker on MG Strike , so I'd disagree. Making Second Revise with a new backpack plug then having an adapter instead of just using the MG Striker slot like Freedom did seems silly. Though the example only shows...

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XV

Two versions of the XN 00 series was made. The aforementioned detachable XN pack could combine with 00 to form the XN 00 Raiser without the 0 Raiser component or the XN Raiser itself could be attached to 00 to form 00 XN Raiser . Am I supposed to take that to mean that there is an actual difference...

Re: Gundam Ace Odds and Ends

I read it as Dagve/Daguve, in any case, it seems to be an Augmented MA form of the Gaplant Elisha special above it, much like the Full Gaplant Fiver.

Re: Latest Gundam/Mecha Merchandise thread (2008-2009)

regarding the damage on your Mk.II's skirt armor, if you wanna glue it back together but is too lazy to paint (as i am most of the time :roll: ) try looking for the "gel" version of your favorite super glue (Loc-Tite has that variant i think). it doesn't leave the whitish residue as the normal super...

Re: Latest Gundam/Mecha Merchandise thread (2008-2009)

@Thechoort: that's probably the Zeta v1.0 you got if you say it doesn't have a base/stand. it's not that bad, just don't transform it from MS to WR mode too often.

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch & Rumors VIII

yeah, i guess they wanted to emphasize the "Revise" portion along with the MG tagline, so as not to confuse with the existing 1/100 version.

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch & Rumors VIII

Compare the HG Susanowo to the RD Masuaro (which shouldn't be that different.) RD got it right for some reason, HG didn't, and I can't tell just what's wrong :/ it's actually more in the hip area. the HG kit's hips are too wide, while the RD's hips are more closely spaced, and the limbs on the RD l...
