And the holy grail, MG Freedom. I hate Strike Freedom, so the original Freedom was just pure love when I got it for X-mas. I've panel-lined the hell out of it. I avoided the decals as much as I could, but couldn't resist putting them on the shoulders.
Whats the articulation and inner frame details like on MG Freedom? I've always fancied Freedom and might pick up the kit, since it's pretty cheap nowadays
I'd be pretty temped to paint it in a Cagalli Strike Rouge color scheme!
The inner frame is just outstanding. much like any of the recent Master Grade figure. The armor isn't something you can take off every day, because the plastic is delicate, and it will take awhile to force off the armor off. The next MG I plan on getting is probably Wing Gundam Zero Custom... that thing is the epitome of Gundam awesomeness.
No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do NOT waste your money on the MG Zero...I used to build MG's, and have about 60 or so in a box (I got out of MG around the 2.0 version releases and focused on PG and 1/ 60 exclusively)and MG Zero SUCKS. Disproportioned, tiny compared to other mecha. Only advantage is it can hold the BFG for a while, until the polycap stress becomes to great and it flops. Same with the wings. If you really want a great wing kit, go for the Wing ver. KA, that kit kicks ass, really. Here's kits I'd recommend from my MG days:
RX-79G (although I'm sure a 2.0 is coming someday soon)
RX-178 Mk.II 2.0
Zeta C plus 1 (It's so badass really, like a stealth Zeta, looks unbelievable in person, and the frame kicks ass, Test ones are OK too)
If you ever plan on taking the plunge into PG kits, do it now. You'll never want another MG or HG kit again after seeing that massive gundam goodness and after building a PG, MG's just won't cut it anymore. When you run out of PG's, then you go to G-system like I did and spend about 300-400 a kit and your wallet will hate you, but the 1/60 NT-1 Alex, Kampfer, Guncannon conversion and Wing Zero KA conversion are worth it.
On another note, try the Macross Frontier kits as well. Great little kits. I highly recommend Armored Ozma and Super Alto.
