==AERIAL COMBAT GROUPBUILD==Build a robot with flight capabilities designed for atmospheric combat. This can include>A mech designed for fighting in mid-air (ie: Gouf Flight Type)>A mech with external flight equipment attached (ie: Aile Strike)>A mech with a transformable flight mode (ie: Any Variable Fighter)>A Fantasy mech with its own set of wings (ie: Rune Gods Rayearth/Selece/Windam)>A support vehicle meant to aid another mech in flight (ie: Core Booster)The ability of flight is key here, if it's something that can stay in mid-air briefly but can't sustain being in the air for an extended period of time it doesn't count. Also, mechs that can operate in both the earth's atmosphere and space are fine, but mechs that only operate in outer space are not eligible.Submit your entries to email@example.com , include at least 5 finished pics and any WIP pics you took while working on your entry, as well as a brief description of your build.START: 7/15/22END: 10/31/22
Post your WIPs! And your finished projects!
Anyone here ever tried painting robot spirits figures? I wanna try this one day. Maybe with cheap used Rds. Imagine having the structural solidity of an action figure and the refined look of a model kit
>>21149136I avoided eating outside for like two months now I've saved enough for an airbrush and compressor. Now I gotta think of a way to fit a Zeta Plus, Zephyranthes, or G Gundam into the theme
>>21149165Maybe Zephyranthes wouldn't be the best choice since it's made for space
>>211491351/100 anons do you guys paint the pilots?
>>21149206if i'm feeling charitable I give them a bit of panel line wash so the details are more visible. otherwise nah, they stay in the box with other spare parts. Too small to be noticeable 99% of the time and all you can really do with them is standing next to the kit. Even having them on an open palm is tough due to how light they are.
>>21149206You fail the test if you don't
Any recommendation for third-party water slides decal for MG Virtue?
>>21149206>painting something that requires more skill and control than just blasting tamiya spraypaint over random partsNah. You don't win GBWC with gay shit like hand painting.
>>21149247So is gbwc your new shitpost?
>>21149368Secondary didn't catch on well enough
nothing can contain my craving for a HG Revive or RG Ex-S Gundam
>>21149368Hes not good enough for IPMS shows so GNWC is his shitpost flavor of choice
>>21149376>SecondaryLol that's pretty cute coming from someone who didn't know about GaoGaiGar's lighting change last thread
>>21149407i didn't make that post you obsessed schizo
>>21149423Oh? That would be pretty sad if there really were multiple people ITT as retarded as you
>>21149423/v/ tourist who can't even paint
>>21149206>no Daryl standing figure>unironically entombed so you will never see him despite the addition of the complex opening of the chestmg psycho zaku is just a 2000 dollar zaku 2.0 with cylinders and garbage bags!
>>21149165>I avoided eating outside for like two monthsGod I wish I had the mentality for this. I spend like $50 a day on food and would save so much if I just cooked my own lunch/dinner
>>21149441just be like me and live an hour's drive from any restaurant
>>21149406Unfortunately for you, both are a joke next to golden demon. You can't win golden demon just by painting base coats and gluing random stuff to your model to appease SEA apes.
>>21149165Damn, being a poorfag must be rough. Thank god I don't have to skip meals to afford plastic robots.
>>21149247>>21149376>>21149423>>21149440I wrote these posts
>>21149441the only reason I cook everyday is because I live 5min walking from a supermarket
>>21149441Then do it, basic easy recipes mostly involve just heating stuff up in a pot or slathering something in sauce or seasoning and shoving it in the oven. It only takes a while because of cooking time and you can just use a timer and do something else while you wait. And if you find the prep boring just shove a video or something on your phone and listen to it while you work. The reason you probably keep going back to fast food is because its loaded with salts and sweeteners to make it more addictive.
>>21149406>Not having medals from IPMS shows.What losers. Me too, I keep getting stuck in second place for the categories I enter no matter how much I improve. There is always someone with a better entry.
>>21149446IPMS shows have way more talented people than golden demon. You should actually google it to see what it is because it seems like you think it's a gunpla thing.
>>21149446>both are a joke next to golden demon.not even close dude golden demon is just warhammer and minis. ipms is everything. you will never see a warhams fag make anything near this level
>>21149450How is cooking at home the same as skipping meals? Do you even stop to read your posts?
>>21149441Nigger, do it. No only you save money, your health improves tenfold.
>>21149464it's just the "money is my personality" fag, it's all he does
>>21149474More like "credit card debt is my personality".
>>21149462Where can I see more pics of this?
>>21149482no idea. I actually took that pic at SCGMC last year. wish I took more.
>>21149412>reverse joints are gay>implying that your pic is coolDie
>>21149441If you get lazy just make some "barely Asian" food like tofu spam or fried rice or miso soup etc they're all like 5 min food
>want to buy the RG Hi-Nu and the RG God Gundam>but also want to buy the EW HWS for the Hi-Nu, and some extra add-on parts for the Sazabi, Sinanju and the 00 RaiserAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH #
>>21149513>Working on old shit you already haveNo, go for new! Consume! More products, ride the waaaave!
>>21149531>consuming is le bad okay???I never understood this. Can you explain yourself? What are you mad about? Is it that people are buying something you don't like or are you just mad when people buy anything?
>>21149537Dunno who you're talking about but I meant it. Buy the new and shiny, the chemical release is what we're here for babyyy. It's why I ordered the RG God even though I haven't seen the show
>>21149531Man, I just like to give my best to my kits at the moment. Don't really care too much about the new stuff. I usually buy kits that I like, and if something that I like comes out, I just wait until the hype dies and get it for myself.
>>21149543Based. Though I DID try to ride the RG God hype but the shipping's taking forever while everyone's already posted their shit so the hype is dead to me
>>21149555literally nobody has posted a completed RG God Gundam here yet. and no, snapshitting it doesn't count as finishing it.
>>21149559Agreed. It's not finished unless it's blasted with black and red automotive spraypaint.
>>21149455As someone that uses a kitchen knife regularly- those are goofey as fuck.Just gimmie a beam saber. Now im thinking of gundam related kitchen tools.
>>21149559I guess so but Japanese Twitter and shit all have it. Some /here/ even posted the Japanese customs and Gunpla Youtube is over it already with Zaku's and Nail guy's review and Crafta's custom. That makes the hype dead for me. No babby consuming this time. The kit will come to my house DOA
>>21149562sorry but some of us actually know how to paint. rattlecans aren't the handicap you think they are. you just kinda suck lol
>>21149564>using a Heat Sword as a chef knifeTempting.>>21149555I'm debating because I want to get the Hi Nu with the Sazabi to keep company with my RG Nu, but I guess I can bite the bullet and then get the RG Sazabi later. The other add-ons might have to wait because buying everything I want now will set me back for around $250. Not to mention that I'm still waiting if Bandai will ever drop the HWS for the Nu.
>>21149576I'd just go for the add-ons cause those RGs aren't going anywhere>Waiting for BandaiForgettaboutit
>>21149584I want to believe in human understanding!I know. I will probably buy the RG God, the RG Hi-Nu and the add-ons.
>Can't leave fun little notes for GP anon with my order :(
msn-04 sazabi from mobile suit gundam char's counter attack
>>21149613i made my sazabi in blue clown because i am a secondary
>>21149613>>21149615he's also really flat
>>21149615>shitty grainy metallics>yellow was painted so thick it looks like it's meltingHigh five! The 50 psi club!
some of us actually know how to paint. rattlecans aren't the handicap haha eat shit paintlets lmao
>>21149618i don't understand why the metallics come out grainy in photos when they don't look like that in real life.but yeah the yellow is bad. i did it by hand and i suck at brush painting, and i also didn't put any white primer down so ended up having to do it thick to cover the blue. didn't feel like redoing it.the shading isn't very good either, it was my first time trying it and it turns out my hand isn't very steady.all in all not my best work but whatever
>>21149206I did with my Jewdough, though I haven't done any other pilots yet.
>>21149615It is time to walk down the path of Toyball Factory
>>21149615Boring. Painting it grey and violet would instantly elevate it a level or two. You may try hard with your candy coats and shading, but pretty colors is all that matters. Even the gbwc winners know this.
>>21149645just bought this for my next build
>>21149615>>21149613>>21149616I like the metallic shade, but I guess the metallic particles make it look too grainy.
>>21149615oh, my orange peel
>>21149615this won't win gbwc
Not shitposting here, but has anyone here actually even entered something to a GBWC before? They don't even need to have won it, just entered something they've built into a Bandai-run Gunpla contest?
>>21149680I want to do it. Once I level up my skill a lot.
>>21149680no and i never will
For those of you who have ordered from GunDamit, there are not other charges aside from the price of the item, right? Just making sure.
>>21149694If you're a euro there might be.
>>21149696Now I'm in the burgerland, so I guess no.
>>21149680there was a guy who used to post here I think, he won in canada for a graze that was bee themed I think. if you saw it, you would immediately think, dam, the standards are low
>>21149697We usually don't get vats or import taxes or anything like that.
>>21149700Pretty colors + "le wacky idea xD" = winIn this regard, the gpg groupbuilds are like small scale gbwc.
>>21149694I preordered the Judge a few weeks ago and they didn't charge tax or shipping
>>21149708But with much better results, right?>>21149706All right. Time to order that bootleg P-Bandai style for the Hi-Nu.
has anyone here bought from gundam model center? any issues with them?
>>21149562Bitch ass coping nigger with the same played out catchphrase needs to get new material. Why don't you get an eg and post your first build?
>>21149715Nope, wish I knew about these guys before I bought off ali a daban kit.
>>21149613>>21149615>>21149616Can't see shit.
>>21149645My vic broke you.
How come IBO didn't get more MG kits? It feels weird that the various Barbatos kits are still stuck with FM.
Is the corelander on the rg god gundam supposed to move his head up or did I do something wrong?
>>21149740it's because IBO fags are poor southeast asians who cannot afford to buy MG kits
>>21149740one of these days we'll go 1 thread without someone asking this
>>21149740Bandai only has so many wizard engineers to spread around. Given how we only get like 3 MGs per year anymore, they likely took people from the MG team and delegate them to different franchises like Star Wars such.We'll likely see more IBO MGs eventually.
>>21149744Hey, its not that expensive, just gotta eat the cheapest instant ramen and heavily discounted food that is close to rotting for a month or two
>>21149740MG releases are slow in general nowadays, I reckon IBO will get a few more sooner or later. having some two dozen suits that use the same inner frame is just too efficient to not use for at least 3 or 4 more releases.
are there any downsides to using third party metal parts for gunpla kits? does it get in the way of articulation or anything? I'm thinking of getting some for my nu and hi-nu.
>>21149762Aren't most metal parts just replacements for vents, thrusters, those weird circular things that some kits have on their legs? They shouldn't interfere with any articulation.
Where are the announcements?
>>21149765usually, yeah, but I'm worried that the added weight could potentially cause problems.
>>21149772Just don't put them on the funnels and you're probably good lol
>>21149766here you go: https://hobby.dengeki.com/news/1680050/it's a plated version of the amplified Wargreymon kit that will be sold on P-Bandai;^)
>>21149743Is the neck part supposed to not be attached to anything?
>>21149785>amplified Wargreymon>plated version>P-Bandai
plated figurerise goku on pbandai when
My Showkew just came in. The box got damaged in the mail but only retards care about that anyway. Can't wait to build and paint this baby
>>21149813>Fedex tells me the estimate arrival is mid-fucking OctoberFedex and UPS total liquidation bankruptcy fucking WHEN
>>21149815UPS is fine. Fedex can go fuck themselves and I die a bit every time I see something is shipped through them.
>>21149743hello anyone when I open the chest it pops his head out, does anyone else have this issue?
Just finished my first gunpla ever, I can already tell that this will consume me entirely
>>21149680I did a few years back, this was my first time doing a diorama and was a mix of various builds I whipped up during 2018. Other than myself I recall the Graze >>21149700 mentioned (It was kitbashed with some 1/100 Cherudim parts IIRC), and there was someone on /toy/ who made an Idol group of Nobel Gundams complete with a light-up stage. Honestly you guys fellate GBWC entries too hard. In countries where it's taken super seriously as a modeling competition like Japan and other parts of Southeast Asia I can understand, but in America it's a hodgepodge of a contest. You'll get some really great entries but you'll also see some pretty bleh ones too, the number of entries they got the year I entered my build was probably part of the reason why they ended up making it mostly online-only the following year. Would I enter again? Probably, I actually had an idea for a build for the next year replicating the cover of the 8th Gundam the Origin volume, but that never went that far other than buying a bunch of GM Intercept Customs to use for the GMs once the change to online-only was made.
>>21149831For example of what I mean by "great and bleh" entries, you'd have stuff like this on the same shelf...
>>21149817I am especially not a fan of UPS at the moment with what they are pulling with funs.
>>21149836...as stuff like this. It's a hodgepodge of beginners and experts at these things, it's not just pro builders at these GBWC shows.
>>21149836Are you saying that this is bad? Because i like it a lot
>>21149813Enjoy. It's a great kit of a great MS.
>>21149813i'm still pissed this was p-bandai. re/100 is already reprinted fuck all, this is scalper hell or heaven, depending on perspective
>>21149836I wanted the alien shiki but that guy I recall was over 100 dollars. Fuck that.
>>21149836Stealing that hyaku shiki paint job.
>>21149841Nigga, his post was alluding to the next post which is bad
>>21149841Nah, if you see an ellipses at the end of a post it's probably leading off into a followup. Here's another example of the contrast of the builds that year.
>>21149840maybe its because im a beginner myself but this looks pretty cool
>>21149861it does look cool, but it's not really well made. the two patches of perfectly even ground that don't even fit together. the suits just laying flat on it.
>>21149861If there was actual effort put into the base (MS sunken into the terrain as they'd expect, terrain height variation, etc) it'd be alright. Still a lot of improvements in other areas, but if you're gonna base things at least try on the base.
>>21149856One on the right looks better
>>21149872naw he's right. the one on the right is better. plus no one asked
>>21149872It has SOUL
>>21149875Ignoring the unpainted plastic, misaligned decals, untrimmed nubs, and random bit of fuzz on the shoulder, how do you excuse the missing left thumb?
>>21149840still better than your average grey and violet gpg automotive rattlecan build>>21149861lol
>>21149881nobody has this kit yet. ask again in 6 months
>>21149821>sd shit>sneedshit>seanigger pure pottery
>>21149896>seaniggeramericans sure are retarded when it comes to anything outside their local walmart lmaoamerican education is a joke
>>21149892>nobody has this kit yetwhy not? I thought it would be pretty popular
>>21149911most americans that preordered theirs haven't received it yet and the rest of the world won't get it for another few months
>>21149871maybe, depending on your preferences, but the one on the right also showcases less skill. the one on the left is at least painted, shaded, and has detail put into it where as the one on the right is basically "Behold! I bought gundam model kit #182, assembled it, applied the decals that came with it, and YOU DIDN'T!"
compressed air cans or air dusters?
>>21149938>american website shitskinironic
>>21149950just use your airbrush with no paint in it
Guess just gonna pick the Hi-Nu, but at least I got pretty much every add-on that I wanted from USA Gundam Store for now. The God might have to wait next year on my birthday with the RG Sazabi. Hopefully that ends my bootleg add-on hunt for now.
>>21149896My favorite series is IBO, all the beam shit in the other series low key fruity bruh
>>21149950A makeup brush.
is it true that MG Exia's ankles were improved in later reprints? On one hand it would be just like Bandai to limit the improved joints to other versions of the kit, but on the other hand it would not be the first time they sneakily changed a kit.
>>21149967I wonder if they would make a RG Sinanju 2.0 with a more recent frame.
>>21149970that's a bigger tweak than a few joints, they'd have to redesign pretty much all the innards
>>21149963>My favorite series is IBOuh oh anon you aren't allowed to say that around here
>>21149967my local store has like 40 MG Exias for some reason, all with the new blue bandai logo, I'll maybe buy one and get back to you!
>>21149974i think it got a bunch of reprints recently, what with the rest of S1 gundams getting MGs, but 40 is kinda excessive even for stuff like battlelogue kits
>>21149967I want to say the Avalance set had some changes made that they reused for the latter runs but don't quote me on it.
>>21149680Yes. I've also won my regional and then got blown the fuck out in the nationals. Also won smaller prizes like best large scale.
has anyone actually seen a mg zeta plus c1 in a shop in the past 5 years?
>>21150007What prizes do you get?
>>21150007lets see the work james bond
>>21150007As a bonus here's the pins they give everyone who enters. No 2016 pin because that year I decided to enter at Otakon and IIRC the contest was cancelled because their display cases got broken during transport or something and we were told to enter online or go to NYCC instead. >>21150008For the best in show it was the mg hyaku shiki 2.0 and the mg fenice, for the best large scale it was the rg tallgeese (kind of a weird prize for a 1/100 and up category) which I already had so I ended up donating it to the raffle prize pool of a show a local hobby group routinely throws.
ive never had an actual trophy before, only shitty paper ones in high school, I should join some sort of competition one day, im sure I could mog the car boomers if I tried
>>21150015they should have just given you a one of a kind trophy or something with a piece of Kawaguchi's hair embedded in clear resin
>>21150010I seriously need to dust the shelf off but here's the best in show from 2015. There's a battery pack under the base and the eye lights up. I learned and grew a lot in the 7 years since.
>>21150033damn nigga you an oldfag. i remember seeing this shit on /toy/ a while back god damn nigga shit
>>21149972I mean, even changing to a more recent version of the inner frame would be better. All things considere, I agree. RG Sinanju is still salvageable with a little bit of tinkering, but you would have to glue a lot of things and do some modifications; I remember seeing ZakuAurelius comments about that RG kit in particular and his insight on how to solve the main issues with it.
>>21150039You think I'm only that old? I was literally one of the people who wrote the original guide. My contribution has long since been written over though with a better more in depth rewrite.
I wanna panel line but im afraid ill ruin my gunpla
>>21150056your kit won't crumble into dust
>wanted to paint under the vent gimmick on the RG Nu gundam leg>break the pull out partThank fuck super glue could fix it. The gimmick still works but I have to be careful with it. I really was about to shoot up the block.All that to paint some metallic green with a marker
>>21150063last time i panel lined my gunpla fell apart
>>21150063>Newfag trusts anon and proceeds to completely drench it in enamel wash. >Comes back and posts that his gunpla crumbled and melted.
>>21150056fineliner, eraser and qtips. if you cant work that out you might be riding the shortbus
>>21150053damn nigga you an oldfag. god damn nigga shit
>>21149884Even my base is better.
>>21150053I have a swordfish in the backlog and it honestly scares me because it to me is a kit that needs weathering and maybe shading as well but that shit's easy to go overboard.
>>21150081You can always strip paint off and try again anon. If you ding it up you can repair it with surfacer and putty. Once you know the basics you should stop being afraid of experimentation.
My first MG. I used EX markers for the fin and red bits. I like how much Royal Red lines up with the darker parts. I'm working on the arms now, but I fucked up the nubs of one of the upper parts, so i'll see if i can mask it with weathering later.Also, where is a good place for decals? I need RX-78 Origin, God Gundam, and FA Unicorn. I can find them on different sites, but not all together in one. 10+ bucks for shipping doesn't seem worth it for a single set of $5 decals
>>21150097god damn that's a nice shade of red
>>21150097Man, that red looks like sex. Good stuff. About the decals, try on the website of the manufacturers and you might have a chance. Else, maybe your local hobby shop?
>>21150097Damn that looks clean as hell
>>21150097how are the EX markers? I got the regular ones and they cum paint globs at every touch
>>21150097you should seal the gold with a clear coat or just get a more resilient paint so it stops rubbing off like that
>>21150114This is the first one i've used them on, but so far they've been steady. Like the regular ones you just have to remember to remove the cap slowly, as I've gotten specks of red on my fingers without noticing. That's what that paper plate is for too. I just dab a bit on it first before the model just in case.
>>21149680I work for Bandai so i'm not allowed to enter GBWC
>>21150132Give us some juicy insider info.
>>21150134Here's a hint. Cyberpunk
>>21150132Confirm if they will release a HWS for the RG Hi-Nu, or if they will make a MG G-Saviour, or a reprint of the MG Turn X and MG The O.
>>21150081Weathering pastels and oils can be cleaned up with zippo fluid without damaging the lacquer paint underneath
>>21150134official grey and violet color variations of every kit on pbandai
>>21150140No plans for The-O that i know about
>>21150140>MG Turn X and MG The O.Now you've outed yourself, we all know Bandai shot the engineering team behind MG The O and buried the mold with them.As for Turn X, they locked it up in the deepest part of the factory because printing suuts designed by filthy gaijin is DISHONORABU
>>21150127cool nice job bro, I cant paint for shit with those type of marker tips
>>21150147>>21150150Do I have to enact a Kyo-Ani against Bandai to get MG The-O and MG Turn X?
The O got a re-release on JP P-bandai not so long ago and you all missed your chance to buy from exporters for a fair price.
MG Rick Dias reprint when?I fucking love that suit but it's neglected as all hell.
>>21150152Not him, but if you still don't want to touch paint I can recommend Dspiae markers, they're pretty nice as far as markers go. I don't know if other companies make a similar type of soft tip though.
>>21150177Why would the o get a p bandai reprint when it is a regular release
>>21150199because not enough people actually want it to rerelease it retailthey did the same thing with the rg johnny riddens zaku ii. retail release, pbandai reprint
>>21150199Because it's a commercial failure of a model. I bought one about a year ago through a friend. Lots of normal kits show up on jp PB.
>>21150081Building the Swordfish kind of sucked. Didn't enjoy it.
>>21150199See>>21150203 >>21150211ya big dingus
>>21150211Huh... I guess I have to hunt it through P-Bandai now.Also, investigating about the options for power pipe, I found this. I know that the shoelaces are no go, but this option does look better. The problem would be that you have buy lots in different colors.

>>21150248There's a certain amount of "Fool me once" with bandai, if something really does not perform well they go scorched earth. Was it the V2 ver Ka that won the poll and flopped? Ever since then they've barely given anything to Victory.
>>21150254Well, they dropped the MG V2 AB Ver. Ka this month on P-Bandai, so I believe you on that front.
>>21150053I feel good knowing oldfags are around these threads stillRespect
>>21150053Thank you for your service. You helped me to get into the hobby, even though I'm a snapshitter. But I will improve and make OP worthy kits on due time.
>>21150280>OP worthy Mate that's not an achievement I had my panel lined snapshit get into the OP once because no one else posted anything
>>21150289Fair point. Enough to mog people on the Groupbuild?
>>21149840Please tell me that a child did this and not an adult.
>>21149911Only east and southeast Asians have the kit for now
>>21150097Christ almighty that entire head is deliciously smooth. Nicely done, anon.
>>21150365The one on the left is better though.
>>21150295Dont listen to him its the only thing to live for in these threads. Keep the motivation going and dont let that sour grapes fugger bring you down
>>21149855bad ass more like
>>21150000Even though it's cheaper and better than the HG, no. That shit's like 1989 Bandai probably burnt the blueprint as ritual to welcome the new generation
>>21150391Noted. Let's fucking go!
>>21150417>cheaperYou fucking wotAlso it's 2001
Here's Bandai's announcement schedule for The All Japan Hobby Show next week. Place your bets.
>>21150521Golu Super saiyan
>>21150521>New product introduction Hopefully more SRW stuff. Maybe a new mold and a Gespent recolor>30MM Probably just gonna show off the jet transformer one and some recolors>Dragon Ball Figurerise Standard Gamma 1 & 2 and maybe some others>30MSProbably just gonna show off the new loli models>MacrossHopefully some new VF models. Maybe a Figure-Rise Standard or maybe Labo of one of the girls from Delta?>New product introduction stageHG Epyon, Tallgeese I, Taurus, Aries AND Virgo all in one bold announcement>New product introduction stagemore horse girl stuff idk
>>21150558>VirgoDon't do this to me.
>>21150521Are 30mm popular in Japan? Because man, I barely see the things despite how many kits they have.
>>21150627Their Twitter tag is pretty active yeah
>Yu-Gi-Oh kitWhat will it be?
>>21150444Yyyeaaa buddy get it
>>21150678>Macross PlusHoly fuck yes please HG YF-21
>>21150097Try Ebay for the decals, if you talk to the seller some are willing to sell cheaper if you buy in bulk. Im a burger so I dont usually have to pay for shipping, so depending on the decal sheet its around 7 bucks give or take
>>21150678Kamen Rider has a near 100% chance of being Wizard since it's its 10th anniversary. If not, it's defs a Phase 2 (Gaim or Drive).
>>21150678what are the bottom middle 3?hoping we get more shots of the darylblade for witchver ka coming too...
>>21150678it's been leaked to be blue eyes>>21150728kyokai senki, vifam and mazinger
>>21150000No, but I was pleasantly suprised to find the RG God today at a non-rapey price. Honestly thought it would be months till I got my hands on it since I didn't pre-order it. Its nice being able to buy kits at a brick and mortar shop, been awhile
>>21150733Any leaks for the others?
Please not the Rx-78-2 or the Unicorn...
i just finished building my first MG, it's quite impressive and i think i'm open to get more. Gonna go for the Geara Doga and GINN next

>>21150764gonna be the BuCUE
>>21150764He is coming!!
>>21150000sometimes, it's mostly an online store thing>>21150417it's 2001 right after the MG G-Gundam kits started getting released, kinda when kits started getting alright. It wasn't that far of a departure from the zeta and zeta pluses that came out in the 90's BUT it actually had some balance to it and didn't fall down like prior Z+ kits despite really only having a newbackpack + slightly different skirt you're either thinking of the old 1/144 kit or amuro's MG z+>>21150494most of the time stores list it around the usual MG kit price, but you can actually get it pretty cheap with sales, definitely gets discounted and listed cheaper than the modern HG does a lot>>21150678>>21150699lets go
>>21150521>>21150678I've been in the dark and had no idea this was happening, let alone next week. Now I'm all hyped up and can't sleep
>>21150678It might just be displaying the puzzle box. If not it's probably another millenium item. You know what would be really fucking cool though? Plamo of 5Ds bikes.
>>21150846the millennium puzzle box is already out. they have it at hobbytown (and no puzzles lmao)
>>21150678>sitting through Blue-Eyes and Dark Magician kits at least before Summoned Skull gets one
>>21150876>summoned skullOh fuck I would totally buy a Figure Rise of this I don't even care if it's P-Bandai
>>21150678Power Tool Dragon, or Black Wings
>>21150678Blue-Eyes or Osiris seems to be the most likely, though personally I want the Buster Blader.
>>21150678the hell's even left to wring out of Kyoukai Senki, the Russian drones?
>>21150521>>21150678>Macross special stage>Macross PlusI guess this tweet about Bandai making a 1/100 YF-19 might be true after allhttps://twitter.com/KatzAsteroid49/status/1566621185076613121
>>21150764A highly detailed Command Gundam would be nice.
>>211509051/100? Macross kits are usually 1/72. 1/100 would make the transformation gimmick too fucking small.
>>21150915My guess is that it's something primarily SD. It seems dumb to debut the first MGSD as something like a Strike or Freedom when Command or Knight or Devil Dragon Blade Zero are right there.Although I hope it's not the tacky chinese ones that they've been doing either.
>>21150938>tacky chinese onesUnitonically, who likes these?
>>21150956Couldn't tell you, man.
>>21150764I hope it's these guys
>>21151001yeah can't wait for the 30 Minutes Sisters announcement
>>21151019Sigma has returned
>>21150764I'm very excited, but scared it will just be some dumb shit like reissues of current SD kits but without the color correcting stickers lol
consolidated with my GM Spartan so this'll be my P-Bandai haul. Was having a hard time picking an RG Sneed kit but i went with the Destiny as i already have an HG Build Strike
>>21151099i am dumb here's screenie
>>21149919They didn't even apply the decals right. Look at the one on the waist, it's hanging off the side slightly.
did anyone actually ask for a 1/100 Ginn?
>>21151188I'm happy for you anonsurprised it ever happened seeing they replaced grunt suits with fucking zakus as quickly as they did
>>21151179I like the GINN. It looks cool
>>21150811I would lose my shit if it was Sisquiede. You dont get a hg or mg you get a mg sd!
I dropped and lost my SD gundam's neck joint. My local library has a couple of cheap 3d printers; would it be viable to model and 3d print a replacement?
>>21149615very good job anon. idk why all these shitposters are nitpicking, but its leagues better than most stuff posted here.
>>21151189You know I didn't think about that being the reason they replaced the Ginn and its variants. I think it's a good looking grunt suit but I guess I'm wrong.
>>21151197fellow Sisquiede bro I feel the same
>>21150902>the Russian drones?correct, all the Russian mechs never got kits and neither did that Nyruen variant
>>21151179I didn't because SEED lineart is butt ugly, but I'm glad it came out because the slight redesign they did for the MG is pretty cool.
>>21150280No one cares if you get better. Are you even able to live your life without constant affirmation? How do you manage to leave your bed in the morning? Your mom has to yell at you LET'S GOOOO POGGERS HYPERS NEW DAY FR FR or something?
>>21151327why are you such an asshole for no reason? just because you think being negative, rude and contrarian for the sake of it is cool?
>>21151331Tough love. That's for your own good, princess.
>>21151338that's a yes, then. I hope you're still a child, otherwise this would just embarassing.
>>21151352>I hope you're still a childSame could be said about seeking validation and support on an anonymous internet forum.
>>21151357not really, no. one can criticize while maintaining basic human decency, something you refuse to do. therefore fuck you.
>>21151360upvoted my good, wholesome sir, you show him his place, champ
>>21151374why are you like this

Has anyone tried to make a weapon display like pic related? I feel bad keeping all my extra weapons and accessories in a box under my desk.
>>21151476Kek, that's hilarious. Wall of gunpla weapons like a wall of real life weapons.
>>21151476Holy shit wait that's a great idea! We the best music! DJ Khaled!
>>21151327Imagine being this retarded
>>21151203thanksi don't mind it, i take it as an indicator that i did something right since my last build only got 1 reply and the 2 before that got completely ignored if i remember correctly. i think the shitposting is funny and the nitpicking highlights areas where i can improve
>>21151498Zero response = impressive build Many responses = shit buildSimple as
>>21150678>Mazinger 50thReal Grade
if I just want the Ex-S Gundam, should I go for the newer S/Ex-S MG or the older Ex-S MG?
>>21149137Done with Windblade I guess. Gamer chair broke so I'm replacing the piston.
Which gold paint is this?
Cheapest place to buy? Amiami doesn't seem to have HG or MG
>>21151576That one brand with the label on the jar
>>21151614Bandai told JP distributors to have retailers fuck off if not selling within Japan because of the product shortage due to many Japanese complaining to Bandai that qty for Japan stores should only be sold to those who live in the country since all other regions get their slices of pie already for official distribution. It turns out places like Amiami if they ordered 100 pcs of some MG kit, 30 of it would get sold to other asian countries, europe, america, etc.
>>21151614Your local store
>>21149613>>21149615>>21149616Not bad. I saw someone selling a Kshatriya just like this when I was in Vegas.
MODEL KIT FUCKING WHEN
>>21151660right after the all the hg aura phantasm kits
koto abs dust smells nostalgic, reminds me of when i used to melt plastic shit with a magnifying glass as a kid
>>21151660Nice to see someone else with taste
>>21151677>katokishitanon your taste detector is broken
>>21151660>MP Nu>it's p bandai>not even a kitmotherfuckers are taunting us. When was the last time a mecha got one of those and ended up getting a kit later on?
>>21151686almost every single time with very few exceptions. so far only the psycho doga and g drei haven't gotten kits
>>21151695aren't there the psycommu zakus too? or was that a different thing
>>21151686i will eat my post if they make aura phantasm kits. they probably aren't making the brainpowered guys into kits either since they sold the license to gsc. damashiitters get all the good stuff
>>21151712>they probably aren't making the brainpowered guys into kitsI don't get it, so if Bandai doesn't make it then it's not a kit???
>>21151660I wish this got an hg.
>>21151640Next time anyone wants to shit on HLJ remember they told bandai to fuck off and kept selling to us gaijin. Tamiya too, who also pulled that shit
>>21151851Based. Time to get high on Tamiya enamel to celebrate this.
>>21151851did they though? if that was true wouldn't bandai just stop selling to them, especially since hlj's domestic customer base is tiny?i've alternatively heard that bandai just wanted stores to limit preorders to a certain amount, which hobbysearch and amiami didn't want to do but hlj didn't mind
>>21151882>bandai just wanted stores to limit preorders to a certain amount, which hobbysearch and amiami didn't want to do but hlj didn't mindyeah if only hlj would actually limit pre orders for bandai kits like for fucking everything else
>>21151925limit preorders as in 1 per customeri do hate how they handle bandai preorders though. makes no sense when for everything else they stop orders when they sell out
>>21151940I have a MG Sword Impulse and GM Sniper and a RG Hi-Nu preordered, see you fuckers in 2024.
Do you guys like this one? Idk if I should get it or the RG Sazabi first.
>>21151964If you're getting it around $30, get Moon, if they're wanting $40+ then get Sazabi
>>21151964>>21152006get a star build and a gramps to go with your moonmoon
>>21152006>>21152062That anon fucked that opportunity by not calling it Moonmin. Fuckin fag.
i need more HG IBO kits to buy and collect and then never build
>>21150734Where at nigga
Gave up on finding the "closed" eye piece and opted to paint the "open" one instead and pop it into the head before painting the head details. Not a perfect job but I think its serviceable.
>>21149743It did for mine too. But it's not a issue.>>21149791>>21149818The neck part snaps on the chest piece. It would fall out when I opened the chest until I realized the neck part was in place properly
>>21152202Shoulda been yellow eyes instead, they just blend in with the head now.
>>21152215Zanscare MS have sorta glowy orange/red eyes in their open state, even on the red colored ones.Plus yellow is a pain in the ass to work with and I try to avoid it when possible.
>>21152202maybe try drybrushing some pink or yellow or something to get a glowy effect? blends in pretty hard with the rest of the head as is
>shitters from /m/ go for grey and violet because yellow and white require thinning lmao, now all the clowns make sense
>>21151984Huh, it's actually black even though the pre release images were all blue. The black looks better honestly.
>>21152259what? literally all colors require thinning
>>21152259so you admit you don't thin all your paint
>>21152283I value my time, thinning is gay anyway.I blast grey and violet with 0 thinning.
>>21152283You can't thin rattlecan paint, retard.
>>21152304>what is decanting
The clear parts on the head and the frame were nerve wrecking. But hey, progress. Time to build the armor.
>>21152321Move that goalpost boy!
>>21152315And I forgot the picture like the fool I am.
>>21152316>crusty, uneven white paint>at points you can see big lumps of paint>spots where white is scraped off, probably was so thick it just fell off from a slightest touchRetard. Are you trying to prove me right?
>STILL no witch kits on the state sideWhy didnt bandai make enough for everyone
>>21152304>he doesn't decant his rattlecans to add thinner then put it back in the can
>>21152326Don't forget the decals inside the scope on the shoulder shield. I missed that part of the instructions when building mine and those parts are not coming apart without sawing the piece in half.
>>21152351Personally I decant them straight into my lungs instead
>>21152356>reading this>I haven't put any of the stickers on the backside of the clear partsPANIK!>>21152377I just get high on fumes. Don't really care much.
>>21152377I decant them straight into my butt-hole.
>>21152382>>21152356I guess I have to pray that I don't fuck up separating the pieces later on when I paint it.
>>21152330What's your point again? I forgot your gripe. But for real how did you know the paint literally just falls off due to gravity?
>>21152394It's a gray tube with a clear green piece on each end with a decal under, so you won't need to worry about it as long as you remember to put the decals on before final assemby.
>>21152400Checked those Setsuna's dubs of Gundam wisdom. I will keep it in mind when I'm snapping the arms, probably next week. Thanks for the heads-up, man.
Is this the stuff that’s used to seamweld?>help a newfriend out
>>21152416READ THE GUIDES
>>21152400>>21152406Wait, wait. I can't see said part here on the decal list. You mean the decals on the clear parts of the arms? I don't see any decals on the clear parts of the shoulders.
Anyone have any experience with the Koto Muv-Luv kits?Any thoughts on their stability/fit and such?Found a store that has some in stock and I like the designs.
>>21152458I'm specifically talking about step 14-1. It's the backpack-over-the-shoulder-shield part
>>21151820Best thing we'll get is the RG resin conversion
>>21152488Actually, looking at this again, I might be fucking stupid and the decal just goes over the clear green bits, unlike the stickers that go under the larger rounds green parts on the limbs
>>21152488>view from below>view from aboveGoddamn you bandai.
>>21152535>>21152488>>21152495Hey, you are right. I will try to assembling that part and see if I can take it apart easily.
>>21152493This, it looks good enough from the promo shots but I've never seen anyone actually talk about the parts themselves.
>>21152493How the resin conversion kits are just add-on parts for a kit made out of resin? Do they have any articulation whatsoever?
>>21151099Wait, the fuck? Did they reopen the Spartan for pre order?
>>21151104Are you gonna paint the RG into the active colors?
>>21152610Not him but I bought the RG Destiny deactive years ago before I thought I'd start painting and now I feel like a fool because now I paint and I could have just bought a normal RG Destiny.
>>21152616I mean, aside from being a collectionist snapper, from my perspective, I would only buy the deactivated SEED/Destiny RG to paint them on their active colors.
>>21152626I bought it deactive because I liked the black/grey it had more than the canon blue/red/yellow.
>>21152616do like that one guy did and paint it with clear UV reactive paints so it looks like activated phase shift under UV
>>21152595yea whenever someone cancels their order it reopens on the site but some people usually watch it like hawks for hours after something sells out so you gotta be at the right place at the right time
>>21152416You're supposed to soak your facemask filters in it just before you start airbrushing, it helps filter out more fumes and particulates.
>>21152669>>21152649What are you talking about?
>>21152681I'm triggered by the Bandai icons. Pick one, god damnit.
>>21152669This>>21152694It's not that complicated. They make clear paint that changes color when you shine a blacklight on it. Shits been around for years. Don't act like he's not making any sense
>>21152668Damn, I thought they'd just straight up allow more pre orders, I can't believe I missed that goddamn thing.
>>21152741I bought 5. Convince me to sell one to you at regular price and I'll do it.
>>21152743Zakus are better. Give one >>21152733I got the thing about the paint, never saw a build using them posting here. No worries, mate.
>>21152751zakus and zeon is cringe
>>21152416It's literally the same 2 chemicals as Tamiya extra thin at almost the exact ratio
>>21152762That some feddie scum being spewed on colony dropping distance.
>>21152827I hope this is the next MG Ver Ka kit.
>>21151964get moon if it's not being scalpedthen save up for sazabi ver.ka
I just woke up from a dream that P-Bandai announced the MG MK-V (Amuro Colors) and now I'm disappointed
>>21152844>some weird ass not-nuNo.
>>21152867why dream when you can paint?
>>21152878thicc and juicy layers of full gloss

>>21152886why dream when you can buy plastic sheet?
>>21152891at that point I might as well write my own story and pitch it to netflix too
>>21152894why dream tho?also working with card is fun!
>>21152875oh, my orange peel
>>21152959>oh, mywhy do people keep saying this?
>>21152967They're trying to reference an /a/ meme and doing it poorly
>>21152933>that upper body resting on that waistIt's like a vase sitting on a table. What the fuck are those proportions?
>>21152933I love it
>>21152610Probably not. I like the deactive colors, and painting an RG looks to be a massive pain with all the little bits and bobs
>>21152933this... actually works surprisingly well. Not just hi nu in strike freedom colors, but the extra red compared to strike freedom's palette. neat.
>>21152595No dipshit I consolidated the RG Destiny and HG Light Liner with my GM Spartan's pre-order I made the day they opened a little while ago.
>>21153130Someone answered him HOURS ago. Isn't it too late for you to be this angry?
>>21153148>>21153130someone's cranky because they didn't get their warm milk before bed and now they cant sleep...

This actually doesn't look half bad. Been wondering for a while now on what to replace the bits on Zabanya with since I like the main body but not the fences.
>>21153422>This actually doesn't look half badNo, it's exactly half bad
>>21153294I want it so fucking bad, even though I'd have to remove my bed just to make space for it. It's fine. I'll sleep on the floor.

So I used to buy gunpla from Hobbysearch, 1999 time ago and today I entered interested in buying a model but they don't have any fucking gunplas anymore?What the fuck?Someone update the OP because I have no fucking clue where to buy from anymore here in europoor
>>21153695Every. Single. Fucking. Thread.
>>21153703>Every. Single. Fucking. Thread.well excuse me for not having come to this fucking thread for years my nigga, I didn't know you needed a 4chan gold pass or somet shit to ask fucking anything
>>21153708>He doesn't have a gold pass
>>21153708You don't even need to do that. There's Desuarchive to look up past threads. But since you're so insistent on being spoon-fed, Bandai has put a veto on Hobbysearch and AmiAmi selling Gunpla kits to foreign countries. This is due to their inaction in combating the scalpers that takes up stock fast and leaves nothing for their local Jap fans. Those 2 sites are still allowed to sell Bandai model kits but only within Japan and nowhere else. HLJ is excluded from this because they have put limitations on orders per account. That's pretty much the main website to get Gunpla now.
>>21153712>he doesn't pirate 4chan
>>21153695get fucked, retard
since Testament Gundam got a p bandai mg, what do you think are the chances of the same for Regenerate, Dreadnough and Hyperion?
>>21153727Zero. Negative ten for Regenerate, that will never happen even in HG. Outframe's possible though.
I am very impressed with the eclipse gundams size. He is a unit. Thinking of removing his weird dinky little feet and replacing them with thrusters though since he's on a stand anyways
I have been out of the plamo game for a few years and I want to ease back in.Are there any really cool HGs released since 2018? Interesting engineering or whatever? How is the latest Zaku II?
>>21153738honestly all the hgs released since then have been at the very least good. some have slight issues, like the ugly hinges on heavyarms, but overall the quality is higher and much more consistent. My personal favorites are baund doc and nightingale
>>21153724someone is going to ask the exact same question next thread.
>>21153738if you like the look of the new Zaku, get it.it's honestly an incredible kit
>>21153479just like, you know, fill it in with putty!
>>21153738Galbaldy Beta is a sterling example of the modern HGUC. Excellent articulation and construction, but they've gone back to shitty hands where the palm is molded on the outside of the grip hole instead of thumb + finger molding.
>>21152875very nice anti-beam coating
>>21153479If I want it for custom stuff and will be modding anyways adding some plate and putty is dirt simple and a given already.
>>21153761>>21153776Some of the parts seem to have rather difficult surface so you won't be able to just fill it with putty, but also scult a lot of stuff too. Like the backs of big missile pods or miniguns
>>21153422>>21153479what's the point of only making half a kit?
>>21151384>look how hard I can shit!>BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPP
>>21153814>colony sized turds
>>21153796That's SD for you, they all have almost non-existent color separation and terrible hollowed-out backs of almost all of their parts, with the excuse being something about not seeing it when they are standing on your shelf or whatever. As if you're going to display them on your shelf instead of keeping on your desk or storing forever in the closet, lol
>>21153845the hollow backs are a more modern issue from the last decade. you clearly haven't built older SDs
>>21152743Sell me one because I think halo is a cool guy
>>21152743dont sell me one because i think halo is gay and i dont like it (reverse psychology)
>>21153863who doesn't afraid of anything?
>>21152933Makes me appreciate the palette change the freedom has more.
>>21153870obviously how else would he kill all those aleins?
IF WE GET THE TRANSIENT FACTS
>>21153876Oh shit so the leak was real
>>21153876https://desuarchive.org/m/thread/21114603/#q21115160Looks like that guy wasn't pulling it out of his ass he was actually telling the truth. Man 1/100 is so small for a Valkyrie, I'll have to wait and see how it impacts the transformation. Better not use the cheating block that Zeta uses.
>>21153872I wonder if coul just get the Strike Freedom and make it look like the Freedom by replacing the gold with gunmetal.
>>21153876it will be a shitty partsformer with 0 articulation lmao
>>21153876What is this? Some macross shit? Do I need to watch Robotech now so I can form an emotional attachment to toy robots that will incentivize me to buy this kit?
>>21153887perfect strike freedom manages to look eerily similar to perfect strike and that's just a different paintjob and the striker packs. just colors should be enough to confuse strike freedom with freedom at first glance. depends on pose though.
>>21153882There is literally nothing wrong with partsforming. Why do you guys keep asking for perfect transformations when you know they'll look like a fucking mess like an action figure with dumb screws and shit everywhere?
>>21153895the macross delta kits can perfectly transform with no part swapping involved
>>21153892Robotech doesn't even really exist its basically just an official parody/abridged version that somehow made it to TV. That model in particular is from Macross Plus.
>>21153876>1/100into the trash it goes
>>21153898does it come at the cost of worse engineering in any other category? remember that most people will only transform a mobile suit a few times, and keep it in suit mode 99% of the time. losing articulation in that mode for the sake of a better transformation has never worked well
>>21153902Robotech is pure soul.
>>21153910I guess it's good for a laugh or two considering it's basically the 4Kids dub of Macross
>>21153904You realize that VFs in Battroid mode are only like the same size as Victory-era MS right? It'd be physically impossible to make a fully transformable YF-19 kit at 1/144 scale, which is why the last time someone tried a 1/144 Valkyrie they did separate Battroid/Fighter releases that you had to buy extra copies of if you wanted to make a Gerwalk.
>>21153905Macross kits don't really have any engineering problems, just durability since the whole thing is plastic. Oh and also extremely lack of paint details that requires a big sticker sheet to complete the package though obviously you can just paint it instead. What you're referring to is the RG Zeta which attempted no partsforming transformation and technically got it correct but the joints become extremely loose after certain times. It could be because of the way the RG Frame was designed and also it was the first of its kind at a 1/144 scale back in 2012. It's been 10 years now and there's leaps and bounds in engineering techniques, so there's a chance the YF-19 1/100 kit is going to be a second stab at that.
>>21153895I can understand the transformation on the RG, and honestly as another anon said a few threads ago that's the best you can get without partsforming. To be fair, partsforming is not bad at all.
>>21153913it should have been a 1/72 or 1/60 scale
>>21153894Noted. Maybe I will do some experimentation with the HG before commiting to the RG.
>>21153915in all fairness, some 1/144 kits from late 80s did true transformation as well. Zeta Plus comes to mind.
>>21153919>1/72 Fair enough, that way it'd be in scale with Bandai's other Macross kits from Frontier/Delta>1/60Just buy one of the numerous 1/60 YF-19s out there already in that case. I think this is the first 1/100 scale YF-19 in general so it's good to have the option at least.
>>21153912The main series is great for being Macross of course. I liked that the two unrelated shows are just enough to fool you into thinking that there's a couple of war fronts going on with humanity losing and technology changing due to this, the search for Hikaru who is now an admiral far from earth. Harmony Gold lucked out with what they did.
>>21153895what's wrong with screws
1/100 VF is too fucking small. It'll be really weird to display it together with 25 and 31.>>21153915Vanilla VF-25 does have an engineering problem. There is no lock that secures the wings and legs on fighter mode so it is really floppy. This is fixed later with the armored parts. Another engineering problem is with the leg armor that awkwardly split open on gerwalk mode. VF-31 is almost perfect though if not for part-swapping the hand.
>>21153930what part of "plastic model" makes you think it should have metal parts?
>>21153930Nothing if they're covered but if they're showing then they look like fucking toys
>>21153959Hasegawa kits exist you know. This is probably going to be a new HG line anyway
>>21153961Metal etched parts!
>>21153982there's no 1/72 yf-19 battroid in model kit form though :(
>>21153988Fuck I want Durandal model kit.
Predict the next Gundam RG, /m/en.
IBO MGs when????
>>21153991RG epyonRG wing proto zero EW verRG barbatos
>>21153996God damn it. We almost had a thread without this. Fuck off.
>>21153991zz>>21153998it's bait, anon
>>21153991Double X please
>>21153979All model kits look like toys.
Does tamiya panel line accent crack plastic?
>>21154009it can if you let it seep into the gaps between parts where the thinner can't evaporate quickly. won't happen if you disassemble the kit first
>>21154009Yes if you put way too much on or let it seep into cracks where it can't evaporate
Why is <x> pbandai?
Why is shipment to <y> so expensive?
>>21153991Not a Gundam series
Why are (you) like this.
>>21154018>yen falls>shipping goes upPain
Why is the master grade line dead?
>>21153991Wing Proto Zero or RX-78-2 2.0
>>21154028Because bandai is branching out and exploring more plamo opportunities with different franchises and such which requires employees to be delegated away from projects to new ones. It's not just MGs that suffered, gundam RGs have been somewhat scarce as well.
Metal frame for EXIA soon, newer GN frame style ankles are being brought over so mg exia ragers can shutup now.
>>21154008Only when they're snapshitted
>>21152894Why the fuck are you in this hobby, then?
>>21153747not my fucking problem
>>21154108Major cope. Painted kits still look like toys.
