    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    They really need to do a metal build Justice or Aegis. It's just begging for the metal build treatment and would easily sell hotcakes. I still don't understand how the astrays got metal builds but not the Justice.

    METAL BUILD RELEASES

    Looks like Entertainment Earth is now also sold out of the Crossbone. As an aside, I cancelled my pre-order for the MB Eva with them, so it may pop back up for those who missed it. If they were to do a Full Cloth variant (i.e. the Skull Heart), I'm presuming it would be a whole new figure since the torso would have to be re-tooled correct?

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    I grabbed on From Japan for 27,800 yen prior to shipping. Who knows how much I'm gonna get dinged for shipping/fees though. Which screws are the ones that should be loosened prior to transformation? TIA

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Thanks so much for the explanation! I might go ahead and hunt one down given there's no glaring issues :)

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Wow, the Amazon JP reviews are very negative; not a single five star review and most are 1 star reviews. Can a native speaker give a gist of what the issue is? Google translate isn't helping me all that much.

    I'm glad they incorporated the removable cockpit block; still unsure about that parrot though

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Fair point, but look at the metal build eva (23k yen) and FMP stuff (also 20k+ yen) Wouldn't it be the opposite then (since Bandai owns Sunrise and by proxy all Gundam properties, while it has to pay Big West royalties for stuff like the YF-19? So wouldn't that mean the YF-19 should be even more expensive (not that I'm endorsing this )

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    A little off topic, but got me thinking. Stuff like the YF-19 comes with loads of equipment, has a fairly complex transformation sequence with small moving parts, etc. How come something like a metal build gundam or eva costs the same (and sometimes even more)? Is it cause they have more metal?

    These toys probably aren't cheap to produce, and some of them don't sell that well I think (the arbalest and leavatein from FMP come to mind, they're available everywhere), which probably leads to small production quantities to start. What boggles my mind is why Bandai doesn't want to produce more of uber popular merchandise like the Strike Freedom or Eva.

    That's basically a mass production eva with a purple re-color Glad they shut that idea down

    QFT right here. I feel a lot more people would be able to participate if it was just easier to purchase the darn things at normal retail price. All it takes is a quick peek at eBay with $400+ pre-orders to see that some people have turned the hobby into a side-business.

    The Third Party Gundam Thread

    I've read in the past that this is the reason. Since Bandai only does 1/100 or 1/60, the 1/72 scale helps to get around copyright issues.
