Gundam!

Post by Sigma Magnus » Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:05 pm

Gotta have a bit of variety in our giant robots, don't we?

I got my first Gundam figure yesterday, an RGM-79SP GM Sniper II from the Robot Damashii line. I will admit, it was an impulse purchase; I'm not very knowledgeable on the Gundam franchise and I'm not sure if I ever will be. But there's gotta be other fans around here, right?

...right?

(Also if there is anyone here who does know Gundam well, I could use some help identifying a specific frame.)

Bought my first over Christmas!

I only bought him because he reminded me of Shovel Knight, but I've since started IBO and my willpower is failing...

Ooo, nice! What models are those?

Also, should probably post some pics of mine...

Sword-dude is a Gyan, Gunboi is Flauros, who technically even transforms!

Yours looks awesome! Custom paint job?

Nope! Robot Damashii, so no need for assembly or painting (thank god).

Fantastic!

Same with these - the only problem with the kits is that they come with stickers, which will remain forever unapplied.

I would love to get into the kits. I imagine there's a lot of satisfaction in building it yourself, as well as a lot more options in terms of size and complexity. But...call me lazy, but I just really prefer having it ready to go right out of the box.

I'm looking at the Metal Damashii 00 Raiser (my favorite frame), but that price tag is painful...

I've thought about figs, but I love the buzz you get finishing a kit. It's the main draw for me really, because I'm terrible at actual creative endeavours! Also, they tend to hover at £15 on the Rainforest-that-shall-not-be-named, which is almost impossible impossible to say no to.

Some of the figs are stunning though, I agree!

So, uh, I've fallen face first into Gundam. Combo-binging 00, Wing, and Build Fighters, I've gotten the MG 00 Raiser kit and an HG Schwarzritter, the Denial Gundam is on the way, and I have quite the wishlist...
