I always thought the Gundam were awesome, but never really got into them. If I were to expand my collection to include them, I would want them to have an alt mode. Does anyone know if they exist, and where one may find them?

I have seen this, but I do not know what line they are from.

Gundam is the home to some of the coolest transformable Mechas ever. Epyon is my personal fav, but that may not suit what your looking for. Look up ZZ Gundam, Wing Zero, HGUC Gaplant, gaia gundam, Gundam Epyon, HG Arios, and there are many more, may want to ask Blurrz about them. There are a few Non gundam transformable mechas worth a look as well. The Tristan knightmare frame, escaflowne, Pretty much anything Macross, and mecha robo mugenbine is definately something to look into.

Good Luck.

The one in the picture is the Zeta Gundam, if that's what you're asking. Otherwise, you'd best look through the list.

That's kind of like saying there's a few transforming Transformers with a look. And the term, by the way, is Mobile Suit, at least in regards to the Gundam franchise.

The Arios and the Archer complement each other well.

By complement I actually mean they combine with each other, per their pilots back story and relationship.

They combine like this;

"Worth a look" not "With a look"
And I used the term "Mecha" because what I listed after that were NOT gundam.
Good day.

I don't need technical terms to get the gist,…I am a noob after all, and I do appreciate the help from all! :grin:

OP: From After War Gundam X you might also wanna look into Airmaster and Ashtaron. I know Airmaster and Airmaster Burst were available in both 1/144 and 1/100 scale, but I've only see Ashtaron in 1/144.

Here is a good site that features all the models I think http://www.dalong.net/.

It's Korean, but you don't need to be able to read it to navigate the site. He has lots of pics of the figures including the manuals. It's a great resource if you want to research what you might want to buy
