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

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, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
