Gundam Plamodel Thread III

Recommended Posts

I'm a Gundam noob, so bear with me..

I'm currently reading Yoshiyuki Tomino's novelization of Mobile Suit Gundam (which is excellent, btw) and in the novel the Gundam that Amuro pilots is completely white. Are there any offical models of this one? :huh: All i can find are pics of the anime one. Thanks! ^_^

Yep; there are, sort of.

If I remember correctly, the plain white model of the Gundam that Amuro pilots in the novelization is the RX 78-3. There are several models of this suit, but instead of having a monochromatic white paint job, it has a monochromatic gray one. It doesn't appear in the anime, but I think the model was produced as a nod to the suit in the books.

Here is the Gundam Fix Figuration version of the suit (1/144 scale)-

And the old "Master Grade" version (1/100 scale)-

The master grade pictured is a pretty old version, there have been updates since then. I think they were all molded in the regular RX-78-2 colors, so you might have to do some painting to get the RX-78-3 look.

Black Valkyrie already posted the news in the Gundam Figure Thread, so I'll spread the news for this one:

GUNOTA IS SIGNING OFF :(

Everybody pop in your CCA soundtrack and play "Aurora" (#14) while reading those last two entries.

Does the red/pink-ish one above transform to a "flight mode?" For those knowledgeable about the Gundam universe(s), please forgive my ignorance.

Damn, guess I'll be using my HG IJ as a test or heck, I might just sell it.

Am I seeing this correctly? "Light-Up" GN Drives!?! I'd decided to stick to 1/144 scale, but this just might convince me to give the 1/100's another go.

Thanks for the heads-up!

I haven't bought a Gundam kit in years, but if they keep miniaturizing lights, they may be able to make an "internal glow" PG Unicorn Gundam some day. THAT I'd buy.

I've been thinking how well light sheet would do with the Unicorn, it's likely doable if anybody still making light sheets.

I know it's not a kit per say, but I won the original transformable HCM 1/144 ZZ Gundam (no. 24) yesterday for $25 on Ebay last night. It has some die-cast too (mostly in the joints I think). Can't wait to get it. Now, I wish I could find the HCM Z Gundam too...

The Justice and I-Justice designs i would've liked it if weren't for the silly and strange backpack system. The thing is huge and its used as a flight platform....why?!

:lol:

Still waiting for MG Exia.

I do realize this one is old news as well as a fan-created custom, but is anyone selling kits for this?

Throne Eins Turbulenz

Actually, it was a kitbash for the 00 MSV. Those pics were from Newtype, IIRC.

That Eins looks so evil.

I wonder how the manga explains all these MSV variations. In the anime the gundams that were shown are already the best in the world....then where do all these souped up versions appear? The manga is suppsoed to be a prequel right?

I would be nice if Bandai made GN Drive parts for customing HG, MG kits. How many of you would like to have a GN Drive instead of the normal boost pack on your Gunpla :) .

Need some advice on a future purchase.... I'm not really a Gundam fan but i love the idea of the PG kits and would like to get one purely on the basis that i like the technical detail and size of them.

i've been looking at a strike rouge but cant find any decent english reviews of it. anyone here got one and built it themselves that would like to share their thoughts?

also considered the strike or Mk. II AEUG (but heard the hip joint is rubbish).

thanks in advance.

Strike Rouge is identical to Strike. Just look for a review of Strike.

Now for an upcoming models image flood.

Whats a 0-Riser?

It's an add-on to 00 Gundam (like a G-Defensor/G-Falcon).
