American Era Gundam Toy Discussion

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

hi guys,
after seeing some in box at AA this weekend (and some pics of the kits others bought) I'm interested in getting a Gundam or two.
Initially I'd been interested in a transforming one, but honestly, not really feeling the designs of those much, and the transformations look very basic.

currently eyeing up the Unicorn and Banshee Psycho Frame ones in the 1/144th scale. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Unicorn-Gundam- ... uctDetails and http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002NE795A/r ... NAHORJOGJR as they're pretty inexpensive and look really nice. I also like the look of the Astray bots, in red and black primarily, but the green one is okay. And there's some pirate looking one that seems interesting.

Got some money as a work bonus, so might get 2 or 3 kits. I've done Games Workshop 40k stuff before, so am familiar with cutting parts from a sprue and building them up, but Gundams seem a lot more complicated.

Anyone got any advice, warnings or what have you? I'd also like a bit of size comparisons if anyone has any pics of them next to relatively popular Transformers. I understand the 1/144th scale kits are smaller (much smaller going by the few youtube vids I've seen) than the 1/100th scale ones, but with no other reference it's a bit tricky.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I have no variant of the Unicorn in any form, but I can say that they will likely be a good head or so taller than the ones here.

Thanks! Good choices of comparison bots ( and the PS3 game box for extra clarity). Nice one, shadowstream

I'll post my collection in a couple days, just moved recently so I haven't had a chance to set everything up. My collection is nothing compared to you guys's that's for sure.

What do you guys think of the Real Grade Gunpla line? I only have the Strike Freedom, but have meaning to pick up Zeta, and Exia. The quality of the model despite the size is quite impressive, I'm hoping they release more from the 00 series or G Gundam.

THe Wing Gundam Zero Custom is coming out soon, it looks amazing and is making my list for sure.

I only have the RG Gundam Mk.2, and I'm not too terribly interested in the line as is. A lot of the parts like to fall off when posing, and the current selection is not that enticing to me. Adding the ridiculous EW designs into the mix(especially Wing Zero Custom) does anything but change my apathy for the line. >:oP

I'm currently working on the latest MG Seed models. I've completed Aegis and Blitz and am currently working on the Buster and Duel is next.

I am liking the improvements overall from the 1/100 High Grade models. They show better accuracy and proportions to their counterparts. The rub-on decals can be a pain though. Surprisingly, I am liking Buster the most thus far, though Duel will probably be the big winner. Aegis is probably the most involved since it has the most movable parts to accommodate the mobile armor transformation. I may doe a Strike Rouge with ISWP pack next and hope for a MG Justice, Providence, Akatsuki, and Legend at some point.

Also, looks liek Tallgeese III has just or is about to come out. I may apss on it sinc eit's really jsut another retool of the Tallgeese model with a new head, weapon, and shield with Heat Rod/Tail Whip. More than likely the remaining EW models (Heavyarms Kai, Sandrock Kai, and Altron EW) will come out after.

Also, pretty sure everyone knew about this, but after quite a few years without a new PG and it just came out.

I'm trying to find the notes on this thing where I can copy and paste but this thing is apparently going to have a ridiculous amount of LEDs.

Yeah and on top of it they are releasing 2-3 different versions of it apparently. The guy I grab my models from is all wild about this PG release.


I guess my luck with Real Grade models has been good so far. I had no problem building my Freedom Gundam, all the parts stay in place and none fall off.

As of now I'm currently building Real Grade Char's Zaku and Z'Gok. In 2 weeks they are having some expo with exclusive model kits. I'm trying to get my hands on Real Grade Exia Extra Finish Version. It just looks so damn sexy.......
