    find it and buy it.

    lucky bastard :squint:

    anyway, I finished my MKII. really good quality...
    [​IMG]
    But what really got me was the leg. The leg has been designed for the armor to seperate at the thigh, and the knee gaurd into 2 seperate parts. Really cool for a Master Grade model

    kinda disappointed in the skirt quality though, the side skits came off while I was posing it and the front skirts fell off while I was putting it on the shelf

    A lot of them are designed to be painted now to some of the joins will be loose until they have a coat of something. Just grab a little bottle of matte clear paint to coat the tabs with.

    hobbywave for around $37 for the titans. The titans has a better hip, while the AEUG version is around $40 without the better hip, but includes a display stand. took around a week to come

    Any of you guys ever order from Hobby Link Japan?

    It seems cheaper even though you pay a little more for shipping. I just wonder how accurate their shipping estimates are, and how long it takes to get the stuff...

    it's a mixed bag.
    it's cheap and usually comes within a week IIRC

    but I've read reviews where the people would get their item, but the box would be smashed or it would be opened with a knife through the front of it. They even say on the Q AND A, that if the package is damaged, it's not their fault and a damaged box isn't gonna ruin the toy experience. But damn it, I want a nice box :mad: I remember my friend bought a gouf or something gundam model related, and he IMs me going "DUDE, my model came and there is a fucking knife slash on the box"

    I am going to be making an order sometime this week...I just can't decide if i want to go MG and have less because of space limitations, or go HGUC and have more in the same space and $$.

    I'll never be able to afford PG :wtc: so that's out.

    do you just want him standing there in a basic pose, or do you want an extravagant (sp?) "This bazooka is gonna go in your ASS" pose?

    I can be happy with the HGUC poses...i've seen some in some pretty cool poses. Plus since i'm only going to be able to get a few...i think i would rather have more of the gundams i want, but smaller...than to only get a couple.

    There are so many i want like: RX-78, MKII Titans, Aile Strike, RGM-79 (i love that one for some reason), Zaku 2, Zgok...there's others, bit i really want those...and it's going to be hard to get those six. :hs:

    Taking donations...
