    Just got my Zaku 2 Ver. 2. The new version has similar poseability to the perfect grade version :bowdown: and seperate FINGERS, no mroe index with 3 connected together.

    this is gonna be an out of the box, simple build. at most, I'll add detail lines, but I won't airbrush since I don't have an airbrush :o

    Didn't really like it, wanted green since it looked more common to see on a battlefield, a big bright red thing would stand out in a fight

    meh, didn't like the idea of one single mobile suit annihalating a whole army. still liked the gundam designs though, I want to get the Strike Gundam + I.W.S.P. , Strike Noir and Stike Gundam Full Burst Mode

    the pointer finger is seperate, while the middle, ring and pinky are connected. The 3 last fingers may be connected, but they can be seperated since each finger has a ball joint. Just get a box cutter and slice them apart
    the fingers are similar to this, but in gold

    there is a full review here,

    japanese, but it is really straight forward. The only things you need to know is what certain symbols mean that usually represent to make sure what direction a certain part is facing or when to insert a part

    if you've ever built models before its really straight forward.

    i used to build all the robotech stuff in the mid 80s, i bought a couple of gundams 3 years ago and realised the price i'm willing to pay isn't large enough or pose enough challenge to build, and plus i suck at painting so bleh

    you don't have the paint it for it to look good now. the new models coming out have perfect grade qualities in them such as a better internal skeleton which grants better articulation, comparing the first master grade model (Rx-78-2) to one of the latest (the new Zaku II 2.0) it shows a huge improvement

    let em get a couple of pics of them side by side to compare

    EDIT:
    the first ever Master Grade gundam from 1995 (I think) and the Zaku II 2.0 that came out last april

    the knees are now double jointed

    double jointer elbows...

    better fingers, peace!
    [​IMG]
    better shoulder joints for better poses
    [​IMG]
    the seamlines are obvious on the old ones, the new ones are practically non existant, and only appear when the design is supposed to have it
    [​IMG]

    the first master grades were like oversized high grades and after a while they threw in some perfect grades parts into them, sooner or later, it will become mini perfect grades with super detailed parts that require no paint

    if you built low grades, then you're pretty much set. It's just more steps and pieces with better decals.

    the posing on this thing is amazing, I feel like such a nerd for having so much fun posing it in stupid shit

    tried to make him do the crane
