HLJ just recently got the PG Strike in stock and it's about $126 (14,000 yen).

I found an interesting site someone posted at Gundam Forum of the PG Strike they built, and it can go in some rather silly poses I might add:

Heh, cool... and yeah, I noticed it had come in stock... I need it eventually. Maybe Anime Boston 2005. :) It sure looks a lot more posable than the Zeta PG... ^^;;

Well, the MG Ball and MG Rick-Dias (Red version) were just released a little while ago... any word on what's coming next? :-\ I am so behind, I need to get a whole bunch of kits to try and catch up to Bandai's release schedule ^^;;

Well HGUC wise we've got the Marasai coming(http://www.hlj.com/images/ban/ban932169.jpg) and a Hazel Kai coming out maybe around Febuary/March.

 As far as MG kits go there doesn't appear to be any new ones out for a while, and with Gundam Seed Destiny keeping bandai busy who knows how long it will take.  :-\

  Gunota: " More MSiA details
Taken from T.J. Grosnet's Yahoo site:

MSiA Asshimar - Comes with large beam rifle and a display base for its mobile armor form.

MSiA Galbaldy Beta - Beam saber, beam rifle, shield, and ballute pack.

MSiA HiZack - Zaku machine gun, beam rifle, heat hawk, beam rifle (listed twice for some reason), shield, missle pack, and ballute system.

MSiA Dark Dagger L - Cannon pack and bazooka instead of the flight unit.

MSiA Windam (Neo Lorrnoke custom) - Beam saber, beam rifle, shield, and flight unit.

EMSiA Zeta Gundam - The implementation of the waverider transformation is the same as the 2.0 version's but they do say that "because of the variable mechanism, this is a Z Gundam you can play with". Comes with beam rifle, beam saber, shield, grenade launchers, interchangable head part for the Zeta Zaku (we kid you not), and mobile armor form display stand.   ¶ 9:07 PM "

YES! Now this is what I like to see, Zeta Gundam getting some recognition. I'm going to buy every one of those(Maybe even 2 Asshimars so I can display one in MA form) as soon as they are released. I also note the addition of a Zeta Zaku head for the Zeta Gundam is pretty damn amusing. Anyway moving on with some more new stuff.

"It's being reported on 2ch boards that this month's hobby mags have announced that the next Master Grade will be an RX-78-2 (Project Pegasus version). Price and sale date to be announced. Also an HGUC Gundam Mk II + Flying Armor (2,100 yen, March 26th). "

"Hobby Japan
Questions regarding future releases of HGUC and MG
- Zeta kits will be the focus with the movie release and the staff assures more will come even after the movies are over.
- No plan for updated version of MG Zeta Gundam as they are satisfied with the original release.
- HGUC will be the core for future Zeta kits."

That's all for today.

Well, the transforming EMSiA Zeta sounds cool, I'll probably just get that. I like to usually stick with kits from now on... but I can't pass up a Zeta Gundam. ^^;; The Zeta Zaku is classic... Also, more Zeta stuff in the future... yay. ^_^

I don't have a lot of time or money on my hands, so the MSIA work fine for me while I don't have a job. It's mostly that I love grunt suits and this is the first time those suits have been made into anything since the 80's(or if at all) so thats whats getting me excited. ^^

Gunota has some pics but they are very low quality, they look as if they were badly photo copied(mostly the MSIA pictures, a few were pretty decent looking). Here are the links:

Damn those kits are great I hope I can buy one eventually god so much money to spend!! (it's my birthday in 2 days)

Yoh Judau what about boston 2005 there is an anime convention or something?? when?? If I didn't tell you my father lives in bodton and I go from time to time (once every 3 weeks more or less) and maybe you could info me about what's happening..

Oh and I just started my MG Wing Ver. K.a. it's such a nice kit but I'll pass on most of the decals there are too many I'll keep the
'Colonies Liberation Front' though cuz he's cool Yoh the wings are amazing on this kit... No boosters though...
And the transformation type is really nice. I'll post pictures as soon as I can and I'll put a link what da ya think?

Awesome, what I'm really excited about are the Hyakushiki, Mk.II AEUG, and Impulse HCMPro figures... I can't wait to get some. :)

And yeah, I have the Wing Gundam Ver.Ka MG, good stuff. I never put on all of the little labels, I hate the stickers, they look shitty, so I only put them on if it needs it. Wet and Dry Transfers are nice, though. :)

As for Anime Boston 2005, its from April 29th-May1st at the Hynes Convention Center. You have to pre-register of you will not get in.

Gunota posted some improved pictures, here are the links:
http://groups.msn.com/rlhmnqs8dd8puj7pei4uc8vrg4/general.msnw?action=get_message&mview=0&ID_Message=203216&LastModified=4675508612769343792

They look pretty nice, and although it's only a prototype the Zeta Gundam looks like it will be great *grins at little zaku head*.

I'm really not sure about the HCM Pro series, I haven't decided if I'm going to buy any. The MK. II Titans and Rick Dias looked pretty nice maybe I'll get those and the Hyaku Shiki when it comes out(although I really want the MSIA Hyakushiki & Mega Bazooka Launcher ^^;). I really want the new Extended MSIA Gouf(one of the few Zeon grunts I don't have) and MK II though, *sigh* so many choices such little cash...

I can't wait to get a few... I'll definitely keep it to my favorites, but that means a lot. ^^;; Hopefully they will come out with the Zeta soon... they are releasing all of the other Zeta AEUG suits... And as for the Hyakushiki, I'm planning on getting the HCM Pro, skipping the MSiA, and getting the FIX Figuration.

lol, That was my reaction when I saw the FIX Hyakushiki too, it's a beautiful
figure. I also would like to get the FIX Figuration Zeta Gundam and Gundam F91(since it's most likely the best version, model or figure, available.) But I'm fine with MSIA for the time being as the new ones are much improved over the old ones. But in between getting those I'll save up a little more and go bigger, I still have yet to get an MG still..

But all things considering, I'm not doing half bad in terms of merch. I've collected a lot in my just 2 and a half years of liking Gundam.

Just try and get more and more Japanese MSiAs... they are just so much nicer, its worth the extra $5-$10. You still have not gotten an MG? Kyle... I'm ashamed! Just get the ball or something. :P

haha, Believe me I was tempted to get the ball.... >_> Actually I might get an MG very soon, any idea on which one it should be?

Edit: heh nvm, I just found a MG Zaku II Char Custom on Ebay for $25(with shipping) and bought it, and I really like the Zaku II and Char Aznable so it works out quite nicely. I'll still take suggestions for my next MG though, because now that I've made a start I hope to continue buying them at a decent pace from now on.
