>>9456884I'm just glad this line isn't dead.
>ROBOT魂 <SIDE MS>ファントムガンダムV2I just purchased Ghost gundam (i know its phantom) dont tell me theyre going to fuck me like this.
>>9456907Phantom and Ghost are in GHOST, Anchor and Phantom V2 are DUSTyou are not getting that silver paint with anything in DUST
>>9456914Oh okay, I didnt know phantom was in dust, i thought that pirate arm was just a bandai original.
>>9456887>>9456884so much cool shit this time, I'm really looking forward to all of them
>>9456884Oh shit new Hi-Metal molds?!Thank god. This line is slow as shit, but this gives me hope that we're getting closer to the eventual YF-19 and YF-21 releases.
Will it be a one off or an open door to the rest of the GAT series?
Kills me that the blue version will be a 30k yen P-bandai exclusive. I'll try for both I guess.
>>9457046They can easily tool the other 3 except maybe aegis,I think it's a safe bet we'll get the Strike and maybe one of the grunts to start.
>>9456882I hope they make these Bad Bitches.
>>9457046Based SEED chads can't stop winning, can't wait to grab this and the Figuarts of our lord and saviour Jesus Yamato
>>9457579Yes, yes very cool...HOWEVER we need Kamille cockpit.
>>9457585That would be great, I'd love to have a lineup of Gundam pilots and their cockpits.
>>9457095>seed gruntsThere's only one I want and that's the Ginn. Best Zaku expy there is next to the Genice.
>>9457531How strong are those horses?
>>9457092there won't be a blue version.Ikuto Yamashita fucking hates the blue eva, he wouldn't allow them to color that way.
>>9457579I better get an Assram Figuarts with there screaming faces.
Huckebein 30thhttps://tamashii.jp/item/13847/the backpack is an absolute mess as from the pics, the black hole cannon, 2 graviton rifles and the fang slasher are all somehow stored all thereI wonder if you can fully detach all that shit
>>9457619Only 2 horsepower. Obviously.
>>9457760this is a web exclusive right? which sites would be the best recommendations to try to get it?
>>9457764Proxy services like From Japan could buy it for you I guess
>>9457523It's really strange that the Re-GZ Custom gets a release before the actual Re-GZ.
>>9457612I want a Ginn so BadHGCE, RD, whatever, just give me a new Ginn (I already have the MG)
>>9457668As if he has the final say. These things sell-out instantly every-time, and they will keep the variants rolling.
>>9457589>>9457579I'm surprised Bandai hasn't made cockpit a model kit line.It would be perfect.Also pretty surprised to see that it's an actual figure and not just a statue.>>9457529I already pre-ordered the Hazel, but I'm tempted to get these parts too.Though this also confirms that the Hrududu 2 parts are inevitable as well.
>>9457823Do you have the MSIA version? It's frequently on eBay. I bought 3 because despite their age, it's still a solid action figure.
Why does collecting expensive robot toys have to be so hard bros. Even the nips have had enough.I'm dreading the EVA-0 po.
>>9456884they're FINALLY releasing this boynow i can finally have the Tomahawk (and by that i mean WHM-6R Warhammer) of my dreams
>>9458026>That much for an ugly metal build in an even worse colour.wew
>>9458026>>9458030>scalping in Japan is getting bad as it is in the westI'm glad we all agree scalpers are scum
>>9456880I've been waiting for a Dopp for so long. If we can get a magella tank im finally done with 0079.
>>9455125fuck, I'd buy those in a heartbeat, but I already spent cash on MB Char's zaku the origin version.
>>9458030>>9458026One day 3D printing will free us from these scalpers.
>>9457760Bought it just now. It beats camping mandy for a second hand SRW30 one for like 22k yen. The proxy may only wave me like 1k yen or something but hey waiting paid off in the end.
>>9456884>newfag hereWhere do I buy this?
>>94583893am est on amiami/HLJ and even then you aren't guaranteed to actually get it.All of these expensive mechas are FOMO scalperbait.
>>9457668You really think Bandai won't pass up the chance to recolor this for more shekels? C'mon man you know better after 01 and 02.
>>9457954The G-Frame GINN is really cool. Prefer it over the MSIA sculpt. But definitely want an RD.
>>9458026Its all artificial scarcity. I believe Bandai outright said somewhere they deliberately want to keep the aftermarket value high, hence the reason for recolors instead of reissues.
>>9458395>All of these expensiveI can see that.Are transformable always more expensive than static kits? Is there any second hand market where it doesn't cost an arm to play with an anime figure?
>>9458420Pretty much. Price is higher because of all of the engineering gimmicks and metal-parts that Bandai throws into these along with the paint/accessories. Unfortunately the production runs don't meet demand most of the time and you get store websites crashing and selling out within 5-10 minutes. I honestly don't know how bad it is for Macross stuff, but it's horrendous for Gundam and EVA metal-build releases.
>>9458408They are re-issuing EVA-1 in acouple days. Pretty sure they have done others.
>>9458435That's because Gundam and Eva have had much greater market penetration overseas. Macross was stuck in licensing limbo for years thanks to Harmony Gold's bullshit.
>>9458435Bandai's Macross stuff is just as bad as those lines. Honestly nearly every high-end line bandai makes is just miserable to try to purchase barring the occasional fringe exception like the hi-metal L-Gaim stuff or the Mazinger metal builds.
>>9458384where dd you buy it? I thought buyee or from japan would have it already but it was not the case
where my Votoms
>>9457523>>9455110God fucking dammit. It looks like I finally have to buy at least 1 Metal Robot after avoiding the line for so long.How big are they? Are they 1/144 size to fit in with HG gunpla and the normal RDs?
>>9458651You have to input the pbandai page on fromjapan
>>9458964is this an option in the fromjapan site or something?
>>9458964>>9459012oh I think I figured it out already, you give them the URL and they make the inquiry first, give you the notice and then they buy shit on your behalf right?
>>9458941They have no specific scale but MRD are sized to fit in with most 1/144 stuff yeah. The Re-GZ custom looks like its actually happening but the prototype ZZ is probably just a...prototype for now so don't get your hopes up yet Bandai loves to tease strange stuff and not release it.
I guess I should ask here I just finished SRW 30 and I really want the Huckebein 30th Metal Robot Spirits figure that's going up soon, but I couldn't see it on Nin-Nin, which is like the only store I use that sells P-Bandai products. Where else can I look to buy it?
>>9459143I usually use mykombini but they are incredibly inconsistent with both what p.bandai stuff they put up and how long it takes them to do it. Big in japan is my backup for stuff they don't put up.
Well fucking christ.
>>9459143you can register in From Japan and among the options you will see is "paste the URL of the shit you want us to buy from you" so you copypaste the URL of the Hucky 30th, place the order and they will send you back the total price.I did this and the total price was 19,800 yen. I bet other proxy sites will soon pop up going over the 25k mark for it
>>9459182what was it?
>>9459193HuckbeinThis is the first time i ordered from zenmarketso im already trying to withdraw my funds since theres no reason for me to use them now.
>>9459182>>9459194Okay this is getting ridiculous. Any sites you guys recommend? Ninin/myklombini doesnt have it up.
>>9459322Biginjapan but you should hurry
>>9459327Thanks. I just accepted the 25k cost with 5k ems shipping.Is bij trustable when shipping to the US?
>>9459339>5k ems shippingDo they really charge this much for tiny RD box?
>>9458112I always wished that design didn't have the little machine guns on the head. Makes it look like it has a frog face with telescoping eyes.
For some reason official site doesn't work for me so can you tell what kind of release Anchor gundam and new Phantom will be? Regular RDs? Or p-bandai?
>>9459465You will be happy to have those machine guns when Zentradi scum is all up in your face.
>>9459322Damn I did not think it would get this bad that fast, fuck it's been only been 2 fucking days since it was Made available for preorder
>>9459594This is happening every single goddamn time. And it's making collecting this crap a fucking chore. It isn't fun anymore.
>>9459625this shit is why i stopped collecting kamen rider figuarts, i'm so tired of feeling stressed because a new release is going to get botted/scalped since collecting is no longer the niche hobby it used to be and slant eyed bugmen know they can take advantage of thati know for a fact that new HMR VF0 is going to get scalped and it exhausts me to even think of it
>>9459433On the site it said itll adjust higher or lower on release but yeah. I just accepted tht im paying 5k more to get this fucking headache out of the way, not proud bu im just so tired.
>>9459652Just used them myself and appear to have gotten the last one. Can't believe how limited this is seeming to be compared to most p.bandai stuff.
>>9459891I just hope BiJ isnt one of those sites that cancels because they made a huge inventory estimate that they cant follow up through on.
>>9459900I've used them quite a few times and I've never had them cancel an order for me before
>>9459194>getting a fucking huckbein figure is this hardfuck this shit, its ridiculous
>>9457532I'm excited for mk 6 but why even bother with these two? They were in one short scene before getting upgraded. Is Bandai going to include the giant orbital gear they used? Because if not then they're pointless.
>>9458408Kek at Bandai realising their shit tanks in price and people just kept waiting for the instant discounts upon release..
>>9460055the VANISHING TROOPER meme is a very real deal
>>9460055I honestly can't fathom it. The original MRD Huckebein was very easy to get. I guess SRW is finally getting some western popularity after 30's steam release.
>>9460203Nobody knows. Half the shit they showed off are prototypes with no release date.
>>9459959Thanks, i just dont want to keep seeing an inbox full of LOLSRRYCANTGETURORDER over and over again.>>9460089That's also part of why I bought it, im a bigger exbein fan but 30 and edge's theme made me love the not gundam mk 2 titans color.
>>9460423exbein fans aint welcome 'round these parts boahAlso, i hope we get a MRD of the rest of the huckebein line. Hell, just give me the MK-III and I'll be happy.
>Reissue the EVA 1 for the nth time>still wont give a way to get the spear without buying the same figure in different colours
Okay so the option set with the hover tank and dopp comes with an extra GM head. Guess I'll see if I can order a second Ground Gundam when that set is up for order.
>>9460602you are just jealous the huckebeins died like bitches and this mofo came and stole all their cool shitanyways, how much it is true that the whole "too gundam looking" is deterring the Huckys from getting new stuff? I do know Kotobukiya no longer prints any of their kits but I don't know if that is for a legal reason or something
>>9460679Doesn’t 13 come with the spear?
>>9460725Ia asked you in the other thread but how does the model kit hold up? I left mines unbuilt for years on end but i dont have it fucking falling apart on me.
https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-133793Well this is unexpected, a VF-25 release to commemorate Harmony Gold backing down and letting Macross flourish outside Japan hence the color scheme representing Earth.
>>9460775I actually dusted it off this weekend along my other SRW kits.It is still very good and solid, unfortunately, you do need a base if you are going to display him like in >>9460725 because all that shit it carries over simply makes the legs split apart the moment you try to make it stand up.This is mostly due to the back pack being massive and I even went as far drilling some fuckhuge metal thrusters I had as leftovers from other kit.Also, the sliders are a nightmare if you plan to paint them, as they require white paint and are like.... 12? I don't remember but if you like the mech I'd suggest you build the kit, it is a blast
>>9460775here's what the base body looks likeI'm currently waiting for a chink copy of the Mk III Boxer kit to arrive
>>9460796Sure would be nice if they put it up on US only sites as well
>>9460725It was in some legal limbo for awhile though it seems to have been taken care of with its reappearance in SRW V and 30th, as well as the recent two RDs. Koto's SRW stuff may be over entirely now though, judging from Bandai making HG SRW kits now.
>>9460802>>9460805Thanks, now im worried since i realized I havent built a model in over a decade so im worried about fucking this up.
>>9460763was talking about the MBthe cunts sell a MB Eva weapon set now and still won't include the spearhttps://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-133798https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-133796https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?scode=FIGURE-048621-S002
First bandai night in ages with nothing I want. Feels good to not have to deal with this shit and just be able to go to sleep.
>>9457668Yellow was always superior. You fags just prefer blue because "lol color coordination the blue girl needs the blue eva".
>>9457494Pretty sure that they showed a slide of them in the RD/Eva section of that digital event. They're doing the Mk 6, so it makes sense they'd go back and do other designs that were skipped over going from 2.0 to 3.0+1.0.
got it lads, hopefully my last mb in a while
Welp, thought it would be 3am est and missed it. Ok then.
>>9461155im passing up on this one. im happy with my threezero collection. i've already sold my mb eva 01 & 02.
>>9460914If it was about colour coordination then shouldn't Shinji be piloting the blue unit since he wears the blue and white plugsuit?Blue Unit 00 just looks better.
>>9459182So Bandai now keeps track on the number of units of a product is going to a particular address or a user.I mean Huckebine is still available to be added to cart at the P Bandai site.
Nobody care about who I was until I put on the mask.
Couldn't get anything. What a miserable experience.
>>9461301Keep an eye on bbts today.
>>9461239>it holds the pain at bay
>>9461360>such a massive seamline on a such expensive figureOuch.
The gouf custom wasn't today, right?
>>9455135Finally actual prototype>>9461360Im 70 hours in and this thing still hasn't shown up>>9461476... the thigh needs to split to exchange with the taped one
>>9461551>... the thigh needs to split to exchange with the taped oneI was talking about this
>>9461563I'm pretty sure gundam has that too
>>9461477There's no solicitations for it yet. It was just shown off. But no there's no other info.
>>9461563>expecting bandai to fix a 3 year old recycled moldlmao
This new Strike Gundam looks so fucking good. I really hope this leads to the Ginn and maybe the Druggie Gundams.
>>9461563>>9461569That's the benefit of gunpla, you can make it as immaculate as you want. MRDs being prepainted is kind of a shitshow desu.
God damn that truly hell night. My internet died 10 minutes before orders opened. By some miracle I got all 4 things I wanted phone ordering.
>>9461208that has always been the case and the reason why some stores ends up having to refund or apologize for not being able to complete your orderthis happened to me with the chogokin VF-31A Kairos like 2 years ago. I placed my order in nippon yassan and lo and behold, the fuckers could not complete it when it was released because of that, I remember the macross toys forum was on fire due to that bullshitwhat baffles me is that the huckebein suddenly becomes such a hot item that the stores already met their limits to order it in mere 2 days
>>9461426I don't live in burgerland unfortunately.
>>9462120Lies, everyone here is American
>>9462120Canadian here, it's still the best option for MBs outside of Japan imo. Shipping might actually be cheaper.
>>9461551Looks really nice, but not a significant improvement over the Master Grade where I feel like I need to buy this too.
>>9461780the 30th has such a kickass theme song so that may have helped lolhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=He7mdF5YUVQ&list=RDMM&start_radio=1&rv=dyh-5mjsbg0
>>9457668Is Yamashita even involved with the Metal Build designs? They resemble his work, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Regardless, a blue Eva-00 is unlikely, given that it never turned blue in the movies. >>9460056Easy redecos. All they need is new heads and a new left arm for 02.>>9457494At this point, they probably have a decent chance of happening, assuming Bandai releases what they've shown and decides it's worth it to keep going.
>>9461976What's up with this Gundam? It looks weird.
>>9462356It's a gundam being modified in a wacky way like the Crossbones. It's also not called a Gundam in the manga except it is now, checking up on Hasegawa and he just joked about it so it will stay the Anchor Gundam from now on
>>9462335https://tamashii.jp/special/metalbuild/evangelion/He still is
>>9460725Exbitch is a false design. TRUE HUCKEBEINS will rise again and will return in OG Final....Yes i am pissed that the huckebeins were killed in such a pathetic way
>>9462510Death to Huckebeins. They've had their 10 fucking years in the sun since 2ndOG. Bring back Gespenst wank. Make a fucking RV kit you cowards. Reprint the Mk2 Kai kit and make all the ACE:P equipment packs available.
>>9462521my brother i do not disagree with your assertion that the Gespensts need more lovebut at least the gespenst has kits and will most likely get at least 1 with bandai's run. The truly slighted design still has NOTHING. No kit, no RD, its bullshit!!
>I am forgotten
>>9462335Yes, the metal builds are Yamashita designs.
>>9462548Very sad mk.06 will likely come out before eva03.
>>9462530I'm just annoyed that bamco seems to believe the only way to sell OG things is with nostalgia for PTs that are over 20 years old and don't appear as anything more than low effort lip service. There are dozens of cool amazing mecha from all of the GBA, DS and PS2 games that have nothing, all of the new exciting originals and Lion variants, all missing any kind of merch. All we get is the same Cybuster/Huckebein/Alt recycled ad nauseum. We'll theoretically be going into 3rdOG with no RaiOh, no Werkbau or Dis Astranagant, nothing. Hell we'll be lucky to get Gespys with their OG design and not the classic one where the arm pikes are a jet magnum instead of beam sabers. Hell despite all of this they refuse to make Grungust toys too, despite throwing them out for cheap nostalgia grabs in the recent games too.
>>9462530oh the fat huckebeinwat the fuck was its name again? the circle zamber was so cool
>>9462583I would kill for a toy of the Valhawk or its later upgrade the Valcazard
>>9462510the Mk II was the shit tier of the family but I still hold it dear to this date>>9462583can we even expect a new Huckebein kit? maybe after Bandai's Alteisen?
>>9462594Considering that it's been the flagship mecha of the series for some stupid reason after Bamco put them in the ground, almost definitely. Probably the original instead of a Mk2 or a Mk3, despite both of those having far more options for variants. Frustrating as shit.>>9462591I've been dying for anything other than that one rare as fuck garage kit of Apotheosized Ialdabaoth for 13 years now. I know they think that selling Huckebeins is based not on OG sales but on Katoki's name, but we need a decent toyline of these things ages ago. Shame SRC is a dead line, despite all its flaws.
>>9457579Seed had a lot of cool looking stuff, there's no doubt about that. I do wish some designs hadn't been thought up for it and were instead used in other series just because they got used so little.
>>9461976look at the top of his head
>>9456872Long have I awaited this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYrYav7Fdc8I wouldn't mind a novel version sometime
>>9461976On one hand, it's nice that Crossbone is seeing literally any love at all.On the other hand, enemy suits when?
>>9462688RDbros will you buy it knowing it will be 30k anime with two more variants coming for the remaining movies?
reply to this post when the new hi-metal Rs get a date
>>9462548They put it out the first time, I have faith they'll do it this time too.
>>9462243context? are they going to release Skull Heart without the FC parts?
>>9462688I would rather get a Ka Signature Messer, we have already had 2 Xi
BBTS has the Valkyrie up. Hope this will not just be some loophole going forward and they’ll be able to release stuff from the original series domestically too.
>>9463678I love the vf25 and this maybe my first purchase. How are these figures normally and do they hold up well or do they get floppy easily?
>>9464024Is that a new reissue? Because it has the same markings all around like the fc.
>>9463703You buy macross toys because they aren't floppy and don't fall over when you look at them the wrong way like the transforming kitsThe 29/25renewal mold holds up well but isn't gonna blow you away like the 31.The only problem with it is the crotch which the newer 29 tooling supposedly fixed. Also pray they give you matte finish and the SMS base over the generic black one.
>>9464056>3 extra stands to hold up
>>9464058>>The 29/25renewal mold holds up well but isn't gonna blow you away like the 31.The only problem with it is the crotch which the newer 29 tooling supposedly fixed. Also pray they give you matte finish and the SMS base over the generic black one.Whats wrong witht heir crotch and bases? Also since this is the vf25, it may not have the 29 fixes?
>>9463583While the Messer is no slacker, for some reason the other 2 Xi have a more orthodox Gundam face. I can't remember if I found out about the original design before or after seeing those figures, but I definitely prefer the original. Thankfully this version based on the animation is much closer to the original.
>>9464155I know it probably won’t happen, but I would love if they did a Gaplant Hrairoo.
>>9464569If they do Woundwort, and they both sell well they actually might complete the base TR unit trio. Even if the Hrairoo isn't too popular I can feasibly see it happening if the sales are really good.
>>9463703Very solid. The VF-31 is probably the best DX Macross toy ever made but the renewal VF-25 is also very good. You won't be disappointed.
https://hacchaka.net/archives/52075651.htmlWho's going for that discount?
>>9464313>Whats wrong witht heir crotchNever knew what the exact problem was, but Bandai actually mentioned picrel as a selling point for the new YF-29 re-issue (Full Set Pack).>Also since this is the vf25, it may not have the 29 fixes?They are basically the same mold with some changes, since the WWM 25 apparently has matte finish as well so improvements for the FSP likely carry over.>basesSMS's Valks used to come with a stylised stand but Bandai somehow gave the FSP the generic black one compared to the original release
>>9464790Thanks for the indept info about it.>>9464684Also thanks for the second confirmation.I ordered it thanks to both of you guys since i was worried about the macross figures being a big ol mess. I sure cant wait till bbts delivers to be 5 months after release date.
I managed to order it! Thanks, Anime-Export!
Question: what the fuck is Evolution Spec?
>>9465091Basically what they call Robot Spirits releases that aren't necessarily Ver.Anime I suppose.
>>9465037wat the fuck
>>9465130Skullma from Aura Phantasm, an Aura Battler Dunbine subline of Robot Damashii that features the more insect-like designs of Yutaka Izubuchi that were never animated. Pic related.
>>9465091The Robot Damashii B-Team/interns,
>>9464994Told myself I wouldn’t get another metal build until they do double x, but might have to try for this one.
>>9465144Are they that bad?
>>9465150I wish they would have gone full Izubuchi proportions on this.
>>9465192>replaces those shitty overweight claws with shotgun armsI bought the fc but goddamn son, thats cool as hell.
>>9465144At least they don't have to churn out MCU Robot Damshii releases
>>9464994I like the looks but I'm getting a bit of Metal Build fatigue so I'm likely going to pass on this one. Already happy with the MG Ver.Ka which both it and the MB are trying to look as accurate as the original line art.
>>9465151No. Crossbone is pretty great, and F91 has questionable proportions Nothing as bad as the old Zeta/CCA RD releases
>>9465296i called this several threads ago hell yeah now give me my damn doven wolf
>>9462808Does it really get such major upgrades? Or like a version with the missiles/effects and a destroyed version? Kind of like Alex parts and the FA version?
>>9465521I wish I cared about either of them because prices for them are reasonable.
would you buy a pic related version of kobe bryant
>>9466110I'd buy any Byarlant.
>>9465795the hell is this?
>>9466110Based on that image alone, no. I might feel differently after seeing it in action or just a 360 and all its capabilities. Granted, I'm one of those oddballs who only likes certain suits in animation or rather while they're moving, so static depictions of them are mostly meh to me.
>>9465067I'm fine with this thing, but you can bet your ass I won't be posing it with the full cloth.
>>9466380>but you can bet your ass I won't be posing it with the full cloth.Trust me you dont want the FC on it since i feel like the weight on it might cause long term problems. I keep mines off my X1 since the body is so tiny already so the extra weight doesnt help.
>>9466390I already have the FC. I have all of them. I'm stopping at Ghost though. I only wanted the actual Crossbones so the fake ones after are not interesting to me.
>>9465795Give it to ME.NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWI said...NOOOOOOOOOOW
All that Macross talk I just scrolled by reminded me of one of my favorite figure ads:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BasedRKdTlYSkOne day I'll watch the animations. One day.
>>9466601>4chan changes the "Onions" in the URl to "Based"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S o yRKdTlYSk
preordered the metal build eva 00 and 01 by impulse… anyone here has experience with those and can tell me what to watch out for, if any?
>>9465192>still no X2Kai
>>9466110This is clearly the normal Byarlant. Monoeye is a dead giveaway
Is the Eva 00 unit still up anywhere?
>>9466796Nothing really to watch out for, only issue I've had is that the left shoulder pylon on 02 pops off easily. No problems whatsoever with 01, though I recall some folks had some loose joints on theirs. Really solid figures overall. Can't wait to add 00 to the team!
>>9467070Anywhere without jacked up prices? Not really, but I think you can afford to wait on this till release judging by the availability of units 01 and 02 nowadays.
>>9466796The stand is shit, don't bother with it
>>9467759How many organs do I sell?
>>9467759too rich for my blood, no space
>>9467759I like it but I don't like it that much. If only Bandai let us order a larger size version of RD as an option.
>>9467822I bought RG kit precisely for this. I know they'll eventually do a ver ANIME Sazabi figure when I'm old and grey and it will probably cost something stupid like $200 or double that with inflation if they push the metal meme.
>>9467925RG adds details that don't make quite make it a replacement for something attempting to be closer to animation, no? In any case, Ground Gundam doesn't have an RG as far as I know. I wish I could order an RD of it that's the size of Xi and Penelope.
>>9467404Where can you still get 01 & 02 for retail?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpCu3GrYqXoAnyone know what music was used for the Hazel trailer?
>>9467759I like this better than the Nu but it is still a gaudy redesign that is basically just a statue with opening panels. Easy pass, I'll wait for the now inevitable MB Sazabi.
>>9468198I will definitely pick this Ka Signature Shiki Kai up, IF it gets released, but what has me even more excited is the Shiki Kai is in the Zeta MSV line up, which gives us a chance for a Ka Signature MSZ-008 ZII.
>>9469351Stop tempting me into purchasing white fullcloth
>>9467076yeah seems like some people reported loose hip joints. how’s yours now after owning it for a while?>>9467641so I guess, no dynamic running poses then for the MB Evas.
please post displays, need some inspirations to redo my own>>9469612My unit 1 got hit with loose hip but unit 2 is totally fine, just checked yesterday since im redoing my display.if you want to do running pose just remove the hangar parts
>>9469612>>yeah seems like some people reported loose hip joints.Different anon, I had mines since 2019 and mines is fine for now.
>MB, RD & MRD Providence>STILL no Legend to pair with my Destiny in any of the three lines unless you use the old Cosmic Region figureEnough of this shit Bandai, stop wanking off the inferior suit. The Legend did more & deserves at least one figure so our Destiny's or Strike Freedom are not lonely.
>>9471040>those fucking mile long antenna.Ripe for the breaking.
>>9471073You don't have to put them in if you don't want to.
>>9470892I haven't thought about those two in a long time. Honestly, bit of a shame Infinite Justice and Legend were stuck there. With their melee weapons I'd have liked to see them show those off much more.
>>9471081Some anons don't just wear ham gloves anon they're just natural hamhands, pretty rude of you to just tell the poor guy to take his hands off.
>>9471204Holy shit, I didn't expect to see necanon here.
>>9471040I'd like a standalone Guntank MP.
What are the strangest looking Gundam?
>>9471040Display OnlyPlease Understand
>>9471422I would be astonished if this didn't end up being the outcome.
>>9471395IBO frames look pretty out there
>>9469612The stand is perfectly fine and I've had my MB Eva 01 in a dynamic running pose basically since day one with no issue what so ever. At worst just tighten up the joint arm's bolts a little and you're good. Maybe use some clear nail polish or your preferred method to tighten up the post that plugs the stand's connector into the back of the Eva if that loosens up over time.
>>9471395Definitely not that one. The Hugo is pretty cool looking. The head has Metal Gear Rex vibes.
>>9472020I didn't mean it looked bad, I actually started building the Hugo yesterday. I just meant, what doesn't look like an RX-78-2?
>>9471395that's not a gundam
>>9472043Nothing looks like the RX-78 in IBO, at all.
>>9471395I don't know why don't you post an actual Gundam first.
>>9472120>>9472124are you really going to be this anal about terminology
>>9472203Neither of the guys you're replying to but it's a pretty good way to catch out newfags. Gatekeeping of some kind is necessary to keeping a healthy community, or to keeping what little cohesion even a poor community may have.
>>9472203Gundam is just a random title granted so yes he's right unless he's joking around.Pic for instance is not a gundam.
>>9472203>"What are the strangest looking cars?">that's a tank>"are you really going to be this anal about terminology?"Do you get pissy if someone corrects you for thinking Krillin can go Super Saiyan, too?>>9472367>Aile Strike isn't a GundamAre you retarded?
>>9472710>Aile Strike isn't a Gundam
>>9472737>posts image of aile strike>"Pic for instance is not a gundam.">get called a retardWhat part of this is confusing to you?
>>9472203yes, because in this case strangest looking Gundam means a lot different from strangest looking mobile suit.Gundams are generally designed to keep in line with certain visual ques, but MS in general can look a lot more varied.Even in the original Gundam you have weird shit like the Zock, Gyan, guntank, and Gogg alongside the Gundam and Zaku.And in Zeta onwards you have tons of very unconventional designs.
>>9472367>>9472710"Aile Strike Rouge isn't a gundam" is one of those issues where you if you really wanna get into the minutia and pedantics of Gundam it's true, but we all know it's a Gundam from a general standpoint.Same with the Astrays, F91, and 00 Raiser, technically none of those are "Gundams", but we know that's not *really* true
>>9472367>>9472822Fun fact, in CE a Gundam isn't one given to it in its name but if it uses the G.U.N.D.A.M acronym in its operating system. That is why the Astray & Strike Rouge are known as Gundams even though they are never referred to it in name. They use a modified OS from the G-Project G.U.N.D.A.M OS (with the Akatsuki using a modified OS from the modified OS used in the Strike Rouge & Astrays). Each universe has a separate classification system to identify if a MS is a Gundam or not so stop thinking they all go by UC standards.
Do you guys ever kitbash and relcolor any of your kits together? A lot of connectors are the same. Or is that a sin?
>>9472879this isn't the kit thread mate
>>9472844UC is the only thing that matters.
What kind of tolerance does Hobby Search have for not paying for an order? Not my first order but it would be my first non-payment.
>>9473988They normally let you cancel orders. If they already invoiced you yeah they’ll probably be pissed, but it’s still better trying to cancel than just ignoring the invoice.
>>9473988>>9474064You usually have a 12 hour window which you can cancel your order yourself from the account page. After that they charge you 10% cancellation fee. They're probably the least flexible with this kind of thing which is why I don't use them as much.
>>9474064>>9474152Yeah this is something I already got invoiced for
How do you remove a broken pegs without a drill?
My DYNACTION Unit 02 arrived and I was really against the purchase till I saw it next to Unit 01. Really hope they do Unit 00 eventually.
>>9475093if you can't access the hole from the other side and push the broken peg out, then you'll pretty much need a drill.
>>9465143The Guitorre is one of the best purchases I have ever made in regards to robot action figures in general.The only thing I don't like about it is how the neck bends forward.
Got a billbine since I've already got the dunbine and zwarth to match, but immediately out of box I got hit with a misassembly on one of the arms that connect the shoulder cannons to the back. Should be an easy fix with sanding and cutting, but Im curious to know if mistakes like these are common or not, considering I've already got a fair few RD's on my shelf by now.
>>9476103Have you tried contacting bandai about it?
Dear Santa Bandai,For Christmas this year, I want ANIME Zeta toys, I have been a good boy this year.
>>9476103They're not necessarily common, but with mass produced anything you're going to get the occasional misassembled component sadly.
>>9477148Not until 08th MS Team starts wrapping up.
>>9477346Which should be within the next year. We have the Gouf Custom and MP Guntank on deck, then after that I assume EZ8, P-Bandai Ground GM Sniper, that's about it.
>>9477148I don't. It's been nice not having to spend a bunch of money and refresh AmiAmi for an hour every release. I want more time.
This beautiful mf just came in
>>9472844I ignore whatever retarded explanation is given in supplemental material or AUs and interpret it as a portmanteu of gun and freedom because thats what it is in real life and that actually makes sense given its role in the franchise. As for what is considered a gundam, i think of it as a name applied to high performance prototypes and ace units, and given the gundam face and that this is done basically done in universe by engineers in tribute to the og gundams role in the oyw but also for psychological effect on zeon soldiers and possibly some superstition because the japanese are like that.
>>9465296>released before a standard rd re gzI cant be the only one who finds this disrespectful right?
>>9477346I'm sure it'll be wrapped up in 2022
>>9474042As a figure, that's disgusting. If I saw this exact image as a frame of animation I'd love it, I'm sure. Just the difference in textures can make all the difference. There are some suits I like more as figures than in animation, too.
>>9478185I'm sure you're not, but now that you've got me thinking of it I can't say I think the same. I think it's a smart move that generates interest for the original.There are times I think the predecessor suit has enough charm of its own or is even outright cooler, but this isn't the case. I can also see some RD fans wrongfully writing-off the original as too close to Alex and being a lackluster release in comparison.However, release the successor and then the original and interest is now generated even slightly for having that bit of history. Sometimes just switching the order around can work such strange wonders.
>>9478954REEEEEEEEEE everytime i see this on manda it's sold out
>>9481168I know the feel anon. I have desperately kept a watchful eye for the GM Command. Disappointment every time.
oh,wow. preorders sold out for Full Cloth in like 3 hours.disgusting.
>>9475182I have to wait until Feb 2022 :(
