    "What Kit Should I get?" & Recommendations

    So I've been wanting to get a Master Grade Destiny Gundam for a while now, but I'm not sure which one I want. I was thinking EBM (Extreme Burst Mode) But I heard it has some issues. Anyone care to help me out with suggestions on which kit to get and why?

    Thanks!!

    You cannot stop Batman. Entire planets have tried. When Batman crosses railroad tracks, the warning lights are for the train's safety. The four fundamental interactions in physics are gravity, electromagnetism, weak nuclear force and Batman getting what he wants.

    Re: MG Destiny Question

    What sorts of issues? I've been considering it for the wings of light, though admittedly I'm unaware of what the other differences are between it and the normal release (aside from price, too).
    I was led astray by bad directions.

    I have the normal version; it was a nice kit, but the joint for cannon's handle was a bit tight, which caused the handle to snap off when I tried to pose the kit with it.

    The EBM has three clear plastic beam effect parts, clear 1/60 figures of Shinn and Kira, metallic decals, shiny joints and hands, and of course, the Wings of Light.

    This is quite the quandary. The Wings of Light make Destiny look incredible, at the expense of some very real weight issues (and a lot of space on the shelf). I couldn't really care less about the shiny joints, figures and 2 of the beam parts. But I love the beam effect piece for the hand beam-thing (sorry the technical description eludes me right now).
    The real issue is, is it worth the price? Its like an extra $23 for EBM and that's bout half as much as the regular Destiny. Right now I'm leaning toward regular Destiny and save that money for a Gouf 2.0 or some other sweet model.

    I'd take a look at a few of these:

    This one is a great deal for a great kit:

    Ultimately though, you need to pick what you think you might be interested in. Have you watched any of the series? That generally gives you a good Idea as to what you want.

    It's not that it's a bad kit; it's just that a Master Grade (MG) kit (especially a Ver. Ka MG) can be a bit overwhelming/difficult for new model builders. GNZ's high grade (HG) recommendations are all suitable starter kits. Personally, I think the 0 Gundam, in particular, is a great kit for first time modelers. It's cheap, looks nice, and is a fairly solid, but simple, build. Plus, if you're a fan of the classic RX-78-2 design, the 0 Gundam has more than a passing resemblance.

    If you built a RG, an older MG (such as RX-78-2 Ver. Ka) shouldn't be too big of a step. Best of luck with constructing it.

    The modern ones have inner frames. The MG kits that are older than the G Gundam MGs (roughly 8 or more years old) tend to lack inner frames.
