Got the same results in my investigation. But judging from something I saw on Twitter, they might just be revealing one soon...

All 3 together!

Blue Frame is definitely my favorite of the bunch. And Barbatos was the most fun to build.

I did discover while trying to do some better poses though that Quant just does not like to hold his sword. It was so irritating to finally get him to hold all his pieces together. 30 minutes of trying to get him to stay together!

I think I am gonna take a break from buying putting together for now. I like the 3 I have, so I'm gonna pose them and display them for a while.

I am getting that Flame Toys Prime though, that guy will look pretty good alongside the Gundam dudes. I even have a story planned out where FoC Prime scans a Gundam in a universe where he cannot Transform and must fit into the human aesthetic to properly fight evil, or something like that.

I wanna try that Prime kit too. I just wish they'd show more neutral pics of it.

So I want an MG Exia Repair III at some point, but the only way I can get one is apparently with an unofficial add-on for the MG Repair II. Where do I order one and are they any good?

I would have thought that either hobby link Japan would have them or at a stretch, Amazon. While not gundams, I do want to dabble in the mini-pla kits I've seen, mainly the GaoGaiGar ones. I too want that prime and a few of the other ones they are planning to produce, I don't need head cannon for those guys, I'll just pretend studio trigger have animated a series featuring them ;-) (they have a definite style which fits them to a tee)

Can't have it for a month (graduation party gift), but I have acquired my favorite mobile suit! The MG version is my Gunpla Holy Grail.

Nice! I love the 'dark' version of that as well. I need to rewatch that season at some point. There will be no more gunpla for me for a while as I've got a book to save for...

I finished watching Build Fighters, and started Try. Gotta say, out of all the Gundam stuff I've watched so far, they're my favorites.

Oh, and I've successfully got some people hooked on Gunpla. Including Qwan. :lol:

I have the newer HGUC Gundam Mk-II and RX-78-2 on the way, with like...six action bases.

Also, I wanna get a Gundam Unicorn, Banshee/Banshee Norn, and Sinanju. But I can't decide if I should get the RGs or the HGUC ones. I want the former because I've heard great things about the engineering involved, but once I build them I'd probably just leave them in destroy mode, and I've heard the Sinanju isn't very solid. But then I'm worried about the HGs not looking as good, and about how the Sinanju uses stickers for the gold instead of parts separation. Any suggestions?

I think the hguc look alright though the gold on the sinanju is problematic. I myself plan in sticking with the hguc...I might paint the sinanju gold to make it better.

Did the MG Sinanju a few years back. Loved that kit. Definitely the tallest MG to date. For the gold, I just stuck with the stickers. I took one good look at the decals and the parts they go on and said "nope".

I'm not too keen on painting, and I wanna stick to 1/144th scale. Still, thanks!

Watched some reviews, and decided on getting the RGs, as well as the red version of the HG Full Armor.
