Latest Gundam/Mecha Merchandise thread (2008-2011)

Post by SNT1 » Sun Mar 23, 2008 11:05 pm

I figured the Anime thread has their latest anime threads, General Discussion has movie threads, we can have our latest merchandise purchase threads. non-Gundam or non-Gunpla allowed,as long as it's about Mecha 8)

I'll start with my 2008 purchases, including how much I shelled for them

MG unicorn + Tamiya Primer, $77 (USD)
Gundam Virtue + black Gundam Marker (hey, it makes for a cool pen), $57
Akastuki 1/100, $56

- Dengeki Hobby Mag Feb (?) issue
- 1/144 Astraea Conversion kit x2
- Wave U Vernier Round x2

I haven't bought any models this year, which is good since I don't have money for them...

This year I bought the Mobile Suit Gundam Novel/s for around $30, and the first and second Ghost in the Shell movies for about $12 each.

They decided against that because most Gundam fans already have something up their butt.

Since I just started collecting Gunpla near the end of 2007, I'll just cheat and post all the stuff I bought/am buying over the last 5 months:

GFF#0031 Crossbone Gundam X-3
MSIA Wing Gundam Zero
1/60 HGEX Wing Gundam Zero
HCM Pro Hi-Nu Gundam
1/60 RD Freedom Gundam
1/144 R-Blade Custom
1/100 Aegis Gundam
1/100 MG Z Plus A1

Current Order:
1/100 Gundam Astray Blue Frame 2nd L
Action Base 1 Char Red

Will get:
Revoltech ARX-8 Laevatein
GFF#0038 Gundam Mk.III

I'm a bit conflicted about 00 Gunpla, every time they get new gear I feel that people who already bought stuff got cheated. That's marketing for ya'. I really want the 1/100 Kyrios or the Avalanche Exia but my financial conscious is rationalizing that they're obsoleted by the Z Plus and Blue Frame. I'm just barely resisting the temptation to buy the Psycho Mk. II but heaven help me if they announce a Psycho Mk.III later this year...

I also bought my most recent Gunpla last year. This month, I preordered the Gundam 00 video game. Not really Gunpla material, but all preorders are supposed to come with a FG 1/144 Exia in rollout colors. Hopefully, I'll get both when the game's released this week.

wow, you guys are on a shopping frenzy.

So far I've only bought 2 kits as I have yet to build the ones I bought in the last 3 years......-_-;

HGUC Gabthley (i spent a lot of time fixing that right trigger hand.....)
MG Zaku J 2.0

Oh, and I spent $20 and $39 respectively. (CAD)

If I were to get another kit, I might get the MG Ball, probably the 08MS version.

Wow, you guys are loaded (well most of it :P ). I'd finally gotten my hands on my HGUC GM Cold Districts type just today, after 1 year of searching for it. Now my HGUC GM collection prior mid-2007 is now complete!
