However, to import that kit to the US, retailers have to mark up that price to virtually double the MSRP.
    Besides the fact that it's considered a premium kit the WD Gm Sniper is a better kit over the standard gm sniper 2. I have the WD because it's one of my favorite Suits. The WD version comes with a different company shield, 100mm machine gun, 90 mm machine gun, bazooka, beam rifle, and long beam rifle from the ground GM/ GM sniper. It also comes with 3.0 hands as well and a slightly different head. The part were well worth the money but I also go mine for around $60 with 3 day shipping from Japan when it was released.

    I'll have to wait and see if it goes on sale this holiday. Both the White Dingo and Nu cost about the same. And I would probably favor the Nu. But if one/both go on sale I'd ether pick up the one on sale or both.

    Its been years sense building one of these models. And I feel like I might as well just go all in and get the kits I really want while I still have this level of interest and willingness to invest...

    The lack of Mech content lately has me yearning for something Mech!

    My for sure list is going to be the Gouf Custom, RX-79(G), "A" Gm Sniper 2 and eventually the Nu when I can get it for a reasonable price.

    Its going to be pricey for everything. Considering I still need some tools and paints. But I am going to put my best foot forward on these projects. I want them to really look there best as figures in my entertainment room.

    Why pay X amount of money for a scale figure when you can make sweet looking Mech of your own design?

    Black Friday, You know as soon as you get it the sale will start and you could have saved like $20 or something silly like that. At least that is the way it normally works for me.


    To error is human, to forgive is divine, Luckily I'm neither of these things!

    I'm hoping the victory MGs go on sale at some point too.

    That's what usually happens to me as well but it's only $35 dollars with free shipping.

    Question 1/100 00 Suits? Most are not MG, but are they worth the purchase?

    I'm looking at suits like the 1/100 Arios and the 1/100 Virtue. Neither are MG suits, but are they worth the investment? Are they decent kits?

    Thanks in advance!

    I really like the 1/100 00 kits, but I'm biased

    Question Which PG kit should I get? Green Zaku II or MK II A.E.U.G?

    I've been going back in forth for a while now on which kit I should get for my first Perfect Grade... MS - 06F - Zaku II or the RX - 178 MK II A.E.U.G. Between the two, which one would you suggest? I love the Zaku II in the original green possibly my favorite gundam of all. The only problem is the kit is getting pretty old getting close to leave his teenage years behind him and I feel like it lacks a little in terms of overall details. The Mkii on the other hand is awesome, I love the way it looks in pictures I've seen. I really can't decide and keep changing my mind. Any opinions? And please don't confuse the situation even more by suggesting other kits besides the two I listed. My favorite shop has both of them in stock so I'm choosing to limit my choices to those. Hope this was an okay thing for me to post here, if it wasn't I'm sorry. I'm new here.

    Thanks,
    Gunplausible

    Trying to decide on my first Perfect Grade 1/60 scale kit.
    The two I've been going back and forth between are...
    PG MS - 06F- ZAKU 2
    &
    PG RX 178 MKII AEUG

    I love Zaku, he's probably my favorite mobile suit but the perfect grade kit is almost two decades old and I just feel like it lacks in overall detail. I'm not sure how much newer the MKII kit is but fro. What I've seen in pictures it just looks like there's a little more to it as far as detail goes. Anyone have any opinions, suggestions?

    Depends on what kind of ambition you have. The zaku has great inner details, if you don't mind modding the armor, you can create a lot of neat details

    I haven't built MKII, but it's similar in age

    Re: HEY :D

    I think ether would be a good choice.

    But, To make things even more complicated I am also going to point out the PG Gp01 is a two in one! You get the Normal Ground type GP01 and the GP01Fb Plus, you get a neat little hanger thing for the extra parts.

    If I ever decided to buy a PG that would probably be it. But, for you that would completely depend on your connecting with the GP01.

    Good luck

    Only downside with that kit imo, is price

    Re: HEY :D

    True, But I guess between the two he picked its just like you said. The Mk 2 has more detail in the inner frame, but the Zaku is a Zaku so its just simply better.

    But I hate to say it the Mk 2 does look like a better kit.
