Yeah, I saw those pictures of the Acguy MG on HLJ... it looks great, but 4,200 yen seems a little high for such a small MS.

I also like the HGUC Nemo... yay for more Zeta MS. ^_^

What exactly IS the Keroro In Action line? :-\

I'm pretty excited about the MG Acguy and HGUC Nemo, I'm glad Bandai is putting out good kits despite Seed Destiny being popular.  :)

And i think the Keroro in Action Line is this according to GOUF:

Amazon has lots of kits on clearence:
But before I mention any, THEY HAVE THE PG CHAR'S ZAKU FOR 40 BUCKS.
Now with that said, the rest...
MG Kampfer - $19.97
MG Gp-02a - $19.97
MG Ez-8 - $14.97
MG GP-01fb - $14.97
MG Ground Gundam - $14.97
MG RX-78-2 Ver. 1.5 - $9.97
MG GM - $9.97
MG Char's Zaku II - $9.97
MG Zaku II - $9.97
MG Gp-01 - $9.97

I suggest everyone go for that Perfect Grade Zaku, thats like the chance of a life time to get a PG that cheap. I bought it as soon as I saw it, along with the Ez-8 and GM. You may have to do some hunting for the Zaku's(PG and MG's) and the Gp-01 but I assure you they're on the site. Enjoy.  :)

Yeah, thanks for the heads up on that, Kyle. I got mine in the mail, but I have so many others to build, who knows when it will happen. ^^;;

I should let you know that Toys'R us is (again) selling MG's at cheap prices. However this is only for those who live in the States as they only ship there. Go look around and get awesome kits for 7 or 9 bucks. Have fun.

Gah, don't tell me this... I have a pile of like 20 unbuilt kits and very little money... which I need for gas to get to school. >_<

But thanks anyway, I'll try to avoid looking at the wonderfully tempting cheap prices on kits I've been wanting for years. -_-

Yummy.

If anyone gets it, please make sure to tell us all how bright those joints really are.

I saw it also but I wouldn't buy it for a simple reason. I once bought the heavyarms special edition it was suposed to shine and all of the parts were transparent. Little problem: if you didn't cut the pieces in a perfect way it would be seen since the difference was so big. In the end it's best to paint it and to start from scratch to create the same thing and you save some money.

But the only pieces that are transparent are where ever there will be light shining through... this is not one of those shitty "crystal" kits like you are talking about. Most of the kit is just a normal 1/60, like the other SEED kits made before... this one just has lights spidered throughout into all of those glowing gold joints and chest piece... those clear pieces will look fine because they are surrounded with regular pieces.

I may get it for my birthday, I haven't decided yet as I've been debating whether or not I want it since it was first announced. I would definetly let you know how it is though, with pics...hell I'll even get a video up of it.  :) All I know is that all the gold pieces and all the cameras in the head will light up, should be interesting.

And thanks a bunch for the tip on the MGs, but I have a PG and 2 MGs still sitting in the box... >_> Plus this is the first christmas where I have had a girlfriend, so I really need all the money I can get right now.

 I just finished this old old 1/144 RX-78 kit from 1980, it's pretty neat...it came with a magazine I bought in NYC. To be blunt, it looks and fits together like crap, but it looks JUST like it did in the Anime which gives it it's charm.

Sorry I thought it would be the same since my heavy arms was still and HG.
I'll try to find someone who has it since I am into modelling and kit assembling.

Lol, I understand you'll need all the money you can find. as for this old RX-78, it probably is crappy since you didn't even take the time to tell us all about it as you usually do.

Out of order : I was wondering if you guys were interested in seeing some japanese episode of Kit building (gundam specifically) that I have they aren't subbed or anything but it's worth the look. If you are ever interested pm me and We'll see how I can give em to you.

Heh, we have all seen pics of the original model kit that spawned them all. They were indeed very crappy compared to today's standards... but they also had over 25 years to get better. They had to start somewhere. And what is there to say? It's the worst 1/144 Gundam kit produced, I am sure it's way too simple to say much more about it. ^^;; But, I also do understand the charm it has.

If he would have kept it in the box, he could have sold it on ebay.

Under the subject: COLLECTOR'S MUST HAVE...

really no joke.
