    Sweet Fucking Christmas. These kits are no joke.
    Each mobile suit has a mechanical arrangement unique to this product, which consists of about 50 parts.

    Huh what are all these designs? These all look super appealing to me in this form, even the Hi-Nu and the one suit from Zeta that cameo'd as a super badass suit in Unicorn, which are designs I don't like in their bigger kit forms.

    yeah they're definitely putting their own spin on those designs, you can tell by the logo the kind of more mechanical approach they're taking

    Warhammer size mobile suits is cool, but I’ll be forever sad that the Bandai Space Marine wasn’t a model kit.

    I finished the rest of my Barbatos today!!!

    Now I'm just putting the weapons together, then I'm gonna go over the little sticker sheet thing and decide what I want to paint and what I want to stick... and then I am gonna take a break by posing this beautiful gundam and putting it in my display case!

    I also discovered that the goddamn cockpit opens up? So I can see the tiny adorable Mikazuki inside? Holy crap this is so cool.

    I see nubs and moldlines! More work to be done. Also this guy didn't want to stand up and his axe is backwards. Need to get more bases printed.

    Looks to me more like the legs on my patio chairs than factory-fresh weapons, but it's way more exciting than the dull gray plastic underneath.

    For my next project I had to hit three different stores to find pearlescent white, but once everything's together I'm gonna work on this next project all knight long!

    What's a good kit along the lines of the RG Sazabi? Or if I was feeling ballsy and wanted to step up to the next grade...

    rpcJVoo.png
  • TNTrooperTNTrooper Registered User regular
    RG Nu Gundam to go with the Sazabi.

    steam_sig.png
  • HefflingHeffling No Pic EverRegistered User regular
    The RG Sazabi is one of the best gunpla kits, period. If you want to keep in the RG line, look at the RG Nu Gundam. If you want to move up to MG scale stuff, look at the MG Nu Gundam Ver Ka, the MG ZZ Ver Ka (or FAZZ Ver Ka), or the MG Full Armor Gundam Thunderbolt.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    Yeah, that's what I gathered, unless any are as fun to make as the RGs.

    I guess it depends on your definition of "fun?" I'm just getting back into the swing of gunpla building but the 1/144 HG kits are something you knock out in a couple of hours while the MG kits are more involved projects that take multiple sessions. They're both fun but are different kinds of fun.

    FAZZ is probably one of the first ones I had to straight up take a break from building.

    I just put together the gun for the MG Barbatos.

    this fuckin thing folds up, and can be equipped while still attached to the mounting on the gundam's backpack

    what the fuck this is some incredible engineering, I am ridiculously impressed right now

    AthenorWhippyMidniteH3Knuckles
  • HefflingHeffling No Pic EverRegistered User regular
    The MG Barbatos is probably the 2nd or 3rd best engineered MG, after the ZZ Ver Ka and either before or after the Unicorn.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?
  • Der Waffle MousDer Waffle Mous Blame this on the misfortune of your birth. New Yark, New Yark.Registered User regular
    just based off the slightly different armor-less version of the FAZZ the ZZ Ver Ka is incredibly solid for something that's supposed to split into multiple parts and get put back together again.

    Alright cheap Ebay LED vs GundamLED

    sok3jssn1tku.jpg
    cogm6x9nz9pp.jpg

    Ebay LED in circle lamp and no room lights, and no lights.

    9h0r9axr8q6i.jpg
    fxraneiyqccp.jpg

    GundamLED in room lighting, and no lights.

    I fucked up and took comparison pictures in different lighting conditions which so the GundamLED had a handicap and was still way brighter and if you look closely in the no picture you can see the outline of the entire Gundam and the clear green on the beam rifle.

    Yeeesh, the GundamLED is super bright!

    Also that is a gorgeous Hi-nu and I am jealous and also mad I can't tell from looking what grade it is. The fin funnel positioning is wild.

    Yeah don't look at the LED directly. It's the MG Nu Gundam Ver.Ka with the rage nucleon 3rd party backpack.

    Yeah that hi-nu is super gorgeous. Is it painted? The detailing is super nice, all those bit of gold trim.

    It doesn't. The Katoki redesigns of the Wing suits, like the wide release MGs, are called EW versions for some reason.

    I think the idea is if they had gone back and redone the original series in the Endless Waltz style the suits would have looked like the EW version model kits.
