  1. YOU CAN (NOT) AFFORD BANDAI'S POTENTIALLY RIDICULOUS EXPENSIVE PRICING YOU CAN (NOT) SECURE ONE DURING PREORDER MADNESS

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Says more details will be released Friday 24 Aug. Should a new Metal Build (Other series) topic be created for Eva and other MBs? This topic is strictly for Gundam Figures.

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Another MB AILE Strike review. Lots of nice gimmicks. I especially like that the feet can be lengthened. One of the features I dislike is the diecast on the outside of the toy. It's too garish for my tastes. The blue looks much brighter in this review compared to the blog review I posted previously.

    I hope the kit came with 2 right hands then?

    The Third Party Gundam Thread

    Seems the Funhobby Blue Destiny Unit 1 has been released, and it's a mixed bag. Pros: Decent paint job and tampo Good articulation Lots of diecast Decent molding Fun gimmicks (dual LED in head, Li-ion battery with micro usb charging, integrated hidden buttons, EXAM voice etc) Cons: A little bit floppy legs at the hip joint and feet (reported to be getting fixed for the 2nd round release) Noticeable sprue marks (on the front of cheek plate on the head!). Very plain molding of some parts (those CIW on the chest look terrible) Mistake on the opening hatch (different to manual LOL) Very plain diecast design on some parts A little bit too expensive with that amount of negatives for me. I'd love a 3rd party Powered GM from 0083. I love that thing! It's so beefy! <3 GMs!

    yep. Came up in a google search. I can send you a PM of the link. I feel it's inappropriate to post it in this thread (or even links in the official thread since they are 3rd party booties)

    I also thought the Moshow was based on the PG, but I compared to directly to my friend's PG, and there are lots of differences. At first glance yes it looks like a smaller PG, but closer inspections reveals many unique design choices in the 1/72. Looking at the review from hacchaka, I actually prefer the look of the MG in the comparison photo. the proportions just look better. It all comes back to the exaggerated skirt design. Won't be surprised to see Bandai release a more brighter blue Tamashii Event version like the Strike Freedom next time. Anyone else thing MB Strike is very dark in the blue parts? It doesn't balance will with the bright red and gold/yellow parts. Also prefer they kept the yellow parts yellow and not chrome/gold (V fin example). I did see that right after I posted and started looking for MoShow 1/72 Strike again. Seems overpriced compared to Aliexpress. Also since I can't source anymore decently priced 1/72 "Mecha Worriors" I probbaly wouldn't invest in the extra packs without something to put them on. Strange that gundam model center is not selling the packs.

    first review: http://blog.livedoor.jp/hacchaka/archives/52029914.html I feel the MoShow 1/72 release is aesthetically superior. Now I want to find 2 more MoShow Strikes and the Launcher and Sword pack. (not gonna happen since they are mega expensive now).

    Look at those beautifully deep panel lines that Yamato used to do. The Arcadia 1/60 panel lines are so shallow now, they are hardly noticeable from a distance and also harder to ink the panel lines. It's one of the things I prefer on the Bandai molds - more pronounced panel lines. It maybe less realistic, but because it is a scaled model, the deeper panel lines create a much more dynamic look when viewed from further away.

    Prediction: Next P Bandai exclusive will be Skygrasper with Sword and Launcher striker packs. Would like to see: Metal Build Strike Noir and Rouge IWSP I would not be surprised if Bandai release Tamashii Event exclusive Perfect Strike. Although if they are all priced at ¥24,000 I really can't afford that kind of investment.

    Gunbarrel looks amazing! Even though I am highly considering selling my MB AILE Strike, I would buy Gunbarrel on it's own because it looks so cool! <3 Mu Too bad only P Bandai, so will be really expensive to get it after fees and shipping etc.

    My HLJ preorder is still available to any aussie collectors who are looking to secure one. Selling it at cost (+ fees, GST etc). I'm worried if I take receipt of it myself it will be too awesome and I won't be able to part with it. LOL. Then I'll be forced to sell my MB F91. (It's still in the box!

    I had one, but sold it recently. It was much better then std GFF. Less gummy feeling than GFF but not the same premium plastic of Metal Build. It has a completely matte finish. Great tampo and decent articulation. Personally if you need a 1/144 scale AILE Strike I would wait for Bandai to announce a Metal Robot Damashii AILE Strike. If MRD Strike Freedom is anything to go by it would be very impressive. The mold of the GFFN isn't great.its a little bit bland all over and doesn't capture how awesome the original design is.

    There is speculation there will be a 2nd general release without the limited edition flight stand and slipcase.

    I really like the Trans-Am releases. To me it's similar to base Goku and SSJ Goku. I only have the Exia TA, but want to get the MC MG 00 Raiser TA too, but just not enough money. Funnily I didn't get Quanta. I missed the PO and my back up fell through also due to an order mix up with the supplier. Also would love to own the TM Revolution Heine Destiny. Orange is my fave colour. And still waiting for GP01 and FB upgrade to join the MB family.
