After doing some cleanup in my tiny apartment room to add in some new shelving units (they're "meh") I now have space for ONE (1) (Uno) model kit at the top, but over the years I have gotten my hands on six different kits. All the ones at my mom's place are broken (I'm really bummed about the MG Turn A) so I can't use any I've already built.

Which one should I put together?

Two SEED kits. Regardless of the quality of the show, I find their mech designs to be pretty good given when they were released (and the waifus were alright to an extent).

God damn that's one sexy design. I'm holding out for Nu-Gundam Ver. Ka but I'd drop that for this instantly.

I would've bought the Red Comet myself but I'm a sucker for Char's units. The nearest store for buying Gunpla outside Mitsukoshi at Epcot is in Downtown Orlando, I'd rather just get them from HobbyLinkJapan though since they're usually cheaper online even with my 35% discount at Mitsukoshi.

I already own Char's Zaku-II. I bought it a while back on eBay, I wish I had known Hobby Lobby sells them because it was $10 cheaper there.

Yo, Daily reminder that the ZZ is the worst main character MS of all time.

Litteraly an overdesigned toy-bait with gimicks that don't synergize at all. Let seriously what the fuck is the design goal here?

-Waverider form is a half assed partsformation that never even gets used because it's so bad.

-Core block system that doesn't take advantage of the modularity  that is the entire point of the system

-Has to be launched in THREE WHOLE FUCKING PARTS by three different pilots and  undergo a long ass docking sequence in the enemy's line of sight in order to be combat ready.

-Is designed for heavy firepower but doesn't have the power generation to sustain itself in the role and litteraly becomes a brick the moment it uses it's particle canon.

What role is this thing possibly supposed to fill that wouldn't be better served by a straight up Mobile Armor.

We all know Turn-A is the best MS design right?

Not really my personal cup of tea. My favorite is still Unicorn-mode. Although in terms of just having a coherant weapon with a clear design goal I'm not sure you get any better than the Zeta series or Kshatria.

I just finished Zeta an hour ago. I don't know if I would say that as a whole it's characterized by "coherent design."

In the beginning, sure. But around halfway through the series the designs started getting stupid imo.

No not the show I mean the suit itself and all of the successors it spawned excluding the ZZ. The whole waverider transformation is revolutionary sine it does a bunch for mobile suits mobility. There's the speed advantage from putting most of the thrusters in one direction but also It allows for uninhibited atmospheric flight and reentry.

Zeta does have some goofy ass suits though. Like what the fuck even is the Baund Doc?

lol the Baund Doc is exactly what I was thinking of. Btw I was surprised and disappointed by Jerid's demise, it was kind of unexpected and anticlimactic, especially seeing as he hadn't shown up much during the final episodes. I expected something else I guess, rather than just "DIE KAMI-" *explodes*

his ever-intensifying vendetta against Kamille became increasingly entertaining as the show progressed.

Grenade? Was there an issue with a previous design?

Also for $235 it better not explode in my face.

Im really hoping they release a version without the LEDs because otherwise its a huge disappointment with it costing as much as a PG, between the Unicorn and the umpteenth Wing Gundam.  I'm really not a fan of what Bandai is doing lately

From the trailer it seems it's still supposed to have good articulation even with the LEDs.

But as much as I will never stop loving the Unicorn, I wish we'd get some different already like an RG Hi Nu already.

Only took em 3000 years.

No idea. They just revealed the suit. No price or release date yet.

I put together the HG Zaku High Mobility Type. How is it that a HG Origin model is more durable, fun to build, and easier to hold/manipulate than the MG Turn A? That thing was an absolute pile of shit.

Spoiler

Also I bought a RG Nu-Gundam off HLJ but it's backordered so I have no idea when that's going to be ready to ship.

How old is the MG Turn-A? I'm still new to gunpla from what Ive seen, kits have just gotten much much better over time.

Like look at just real grades. In a year you go from mostly being disastrous frag grenades with the poor Sinanju being the latest and worst victim since the Zeta,  to the Mini Master Grade that the Unicorn is. And then two years later the Nu comes out and for how absolutely incredible the RG Unicorn still is, the RG Nu almost makes that look like a fucking No Grade SD by comparison.
