  1. You know all things considered, this was designed so we could have a walking moving gundam but this iteration actually looks really nice, but of a shame it's p ban but had to expect that with this version tbh

  2. All things considered, Bandai shouldn't have made the beyond global in the first place and made this instead with all the new tech that came with it while releasing in retail which would have been really good publicity for the actual walking Gundam.

    2. I mean... why not both? Why does it have to be one or the other?

  3. I just wondering how about the color separation on this kit work, since this kit is 1/144 scale kit and also has a lot of different color separation and also in tiny size. And my espectation is, this kit will have a lot of sticker too, if not, we should paint it manually....

    1. Real Grades are the same scale and those have loads of colour separation so it's not out of the question for an HG to do it too.

    2. It doesn't. You're gonna have to paint all that. They've showed the runners. This is why they are no-grades. They're similar in quality and complexity to HG and RE/100 but they're not even attempting color accuracy.

  4. Good Lord this thing is hideous. The panel lines make zero sense. It's like someone just pressed a button that says "add detail" without understanding what panel lines are actually for. There is no way in hell that any sort of military force would design something like this; if they wanted to open it up for maintenance they would have to remove like six different panels on this silly thing. The torso is just a mosaic of tiny parts. The shield has way too many panels to actually effectively block or deflect blows; it looks like it would shatter if the Gundam dropped it.

    What an utter mess.

  5. I know I will be getting this model for sure. I had high hopes for the real thing to become a reality, not going to be able to see it in person. So having the model on my desk would be the next best thing!

  6. SO Bandai's next 2 releases are entirely new kits... of the RX-78... and theyre both P-Bandai...

  7. £20 is pretty charitable for something with the G-Base/G-Dock and that level of detailing.
    He's pretty sexy but i bet he'll be scalped to buggery on Amazon/eBay...
