heh, don't feel bad everyone starts somewhere, I've been at this for a while. And you know what the Sazabi is, thats really cool in my book. Most gundam fans I talk to are W/G/Seed fans and oh how do I tire of that.....It's always nice to see someone with knowledge of the UC universe.  :)

I hope I don't dissapoint you, but I'm not too knowledgeable about this stuff, though I'm trying.  If I had more time, I'd definitely watch more than what I have watched.  Pete is trying to get me to see everything...though, it's not that I don't want to see it, I just wish I had more time. ^^;  But I'll catch up!! Or I'll try to catch up! Guaranteed!! ^_^

Besides <<; I don't think Pete would allow me to be his gf any longer than now if I weren't willing to watch the other Gundam series. ^^; I would be shunned by him. -_-; But thank you for the encouragement, I appreciate it! ;D

I look forward, being able to talk to you or Pete about this stuff!

Haha, damn right... you better be coming back to the Gundam forum. ^_^ And yeah, you have not seen a lot, but you know how cool UC is, and you have seen a little, that's always good. ;) And I'd note that your 1/100 RX-78-2 is the original MG version... you're Deathscythe Hell 1/100 is the DH Custom, and you also have the 1/100 Epyon and 1/100 Altron (even though I know it broke and you lost its head ^^;;) So you're list is not that bad, like I told you... you have the most kits I know of besides Kyle... although, does Nayuki have more than you? Maybe by 1 or 2...

Oh, and as a side not, Kyle, did you ever get that job at Hot Topic? Or did that fall through?

Heh, and back on topic, I still have to build my MG Z'Gok, MG Gelgoog, and MG Kampfer... I guess I'll do that once you leave for China, Ruri... ^^;;

And yes, the Sazabi... I should strip Rufus of his, he just does NOT treat it right. >_<

Nope, didn't work out. It's ok, I'd rather not work at a store all the preps go to anyway....I like avoiding them in the summer. So I don't know what I'm gonna do this summer...prolly loaf around and use the computer..  :P

Heh, but what I have seen, the Sunrise mall is the least prepyish of all of the malls in the area... eh, too bad I probably won't be back down there any time soon... I was already down there 2 times for a week each so far this summer... :-\

I got the SD GP-03D kit today at Toys 'R' Us for only $8... awesome. Its my first American kit, too. ^^;; At least they are the same thing as the imports... except usually more expensive.

Not yet, I might get it eventually... and yeah, of course there are. :P

I have the Zeta Gundam and Gundam Mk.II PGs, but there are also the RX-78-2, Char's Zaku II, Zaku II, a Gundam Mk.II with Titans colors, GP-01/GP-01fb, and there is even a PG of Eva Unit 01. So... that's 9, or 10 if you get two GP-01s, since you can make one or the other.

are they as expensive as the Wingzero one?  Is there a perfect grade to the regular wingzero?  Personally the import ones I have put together, I always felt were of better quality then the domestic ones.

The Eva Unit 01 is about $80, the RX-78-2 and the Zaku IIs are about $110, the Mk.IIs are about $135, the Wing Zero Custom is about $160, and the Zeta and GP-01/GP-01fb are about $185. Those are all retail though... good luck finding those prices here... and they have high shipping costs due to their size and weight. So no, there is not a normal Wing Zero, and I highly doubt any other Wing PGs will emerge within the next 5 years... my bet is perhaps a NT-1 Alex from 0080, a Nu-Gundam from Char's Counterattack, and probably a Strike Gundam from Gundam SEED are up next... Usually the nicer kits are for UC (Universal Century), since there is a much larger fan base for it in Japan... with good reason. So there is only the one Wing PG (and an Eva one), 6 G Gundam MGs, 2 SEED MGs, and 1 Wing MG... all of the rest are UC (I don't even know how many, my guess would be around 60). So you see, AU is really not a big focus, although SEED has been getting some decent treatment lately. I can't wait for the Freedom Gundam MG, the Aile Strike is fantastic.

Oh, and as for the domestic kits... they are basically the same thing. The only differences seem to be the boxes (the US ones are crappy and they have that incredibly stupid rating system), they come with different instructions (right when they got released here, they had the normal instructions and box, but they put English stickers on the box over the Japanese and threw in a black and white English version of the instructions), and I have noticed that the 1/100 Wing kits with beam weapons have non-transparent pieces, so you need to paint them. The Japanese Wing 1/100s are transparent colored, so they look more like a beam weapon, and you don't have to paint them. That's all I have heard/found... anything I am missing from those who have built more American kits? I just built the 1/144 Deathscythe Hell right when it came out here, the Altron 1/100 like a year after that, and I just got the SD GP-03D, that I have yet to build. So mostly, they are the same, but I still prefer to get the Japanese kits. Plus, American distrubuters have a habit of over charging. I'm not stupid, I know the prices for basically everything, so if I get "fooled", its because I just want it NOW rather than later. ^^;;

Heh, just finished my MG Production Z'Gok... its fantastic, anyone who likes that suit should definitely get the MG, it rules. Maybe I should get Char's as well... hmmm... now on to the SD GP-03D and the Marine Gelgoog MG. ^_^

I finished my MG Gelgoog and I just bought the MG Wing Gundam Ver.Ka... as well as a small SD figure of Camille that you can put armor on to make him look like Zeta Gundam... pretty sweet. ^_^ I got them at this place on Elizibeth Street in NYC's Chinatown... there are about 5 stores in this little underground shopping center that all sell tons of Gundam kits for *good* prices. It was awesome. I can't wait to go back with a ton of money. ;) I highly suggest any of you go if you are ever in NYC.
