    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    I have the first release. What's the difference? Just Unit 03 designation vs. Unit 02?

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Mine was even worse. Ordered off eBay (my only available option). Waited two weeks despite having paid for EMS, and then when it showed up, it wasn't even in an outer box. Just bubble wrap and paper. I was PISSED, to say the least. Fortunately the product inside was undamaged, but the box is pretty banged up.

    Beautiful work, Cap! Wow!

    I'd be all over a fully-equipped MRD or Metal Build Akatsuki. Anyone picked up the MRD ZetaPlus C1 ver. Ka? Got mine, but haven't opened it yet. Damn it, that Metal Build Aile Strike is tempting. So tempting.

    Anyone here own the GFFN Aile Strike Gundam? Thinking of picking it up. How does it compare to older Fix Figuration releases?

    Yamato 2202

    Thanks for the heads up, guys. I had no idea that Funimation had gotten the license for Yamato/Star Blazers. Picked up the limited edition 2199 set. When did Funimation acquire the license?

    Ugh. I don't even want to think about the preorder madness when Focker's goes up. Does it really have to be so hard to get our hands on these things? I sincerely hope I'm wrong when the time comes.

    I feel the same way, honestly. But at the same time I also feel like I should order Ray to support the line or we might never see the last two. Beagle all over again.
  9. Recently got my hands on a Gundam Metal Build Red Frame. The first release without the extra weapons and such, just the suit and the sword, mint in box. Paid about $220 shipping included. Anyone here have this figure? Thoughts? Haven't opened it yet. I'll get around to it this weekend, maybe.

    C looks the best to me. Very clean.

    Is Stick in stock anywhere besides Nippon-Yasan? Good gravy, they're already up to $338. Sheesh.

    Pretty sure all the money went into engineering the figure. Kuma's right about the stand, too. It's the same one that came with Sentinel's Detonator Orgun several years back, which is currently sitting on my shelf.

    The figure has so many tiny, thin armatures.. some that look like they're only a couple of millimeters thick.. and many of them are required to rotate, turn, to withstand torque essentially. That's what scares me so much. Even with experience, I feel as though I'm always going to be just one wrong move away from having a very expensive, broken figure. I sincerely hope I'm wrong and that the toy isn't as fragile as it appears to be. Slow and steady with this one.

    After watching that transformation video, I'm considering getting a second one just so I don't have to go through the process again. Whew! Probably better for the figure's longevity as well. So many tiny, thin armatures. Scary.

    Yep, me too. Really hoping they'll get through all the characters this time around. Fingers crossed.
