    I want my Astray's to be 1/100 so they all match.

    What do you mean by good? I build one before and it was pretty decent. Black glossy finish but too many stickers.

    By good I mean does it have good articulation, and how does it fare in comparison to other models of 1/100 scale.

    I'm looking forward to the RG Gold Frames Amasto Mina Custom now if they would just do the green frame in RG then I would have the full set.

It's kind of something like that.

    Now, onto the explanation. In both SEED and Destiny Combined, Kira Yamato survives not one, not two, but three times where it was virtually impossible for any person to survive, even by coordinator standards. Twice he did this in SEED (His duel between him and Athrun in the Aegis and his final battle between him and Rau Le Cruset), and the third time being in Destiny in the Episode Nightmare. He some how survived all three incidents (the third one being a massive nuclear explosion.) with no logical explanation whatsoever therefore it is assumed he is some sort of divine figure. Hence his moniker, "Jesus Yamato"
    Heh, thanks you guys. I think I get it now. Not sure how I feel about an all powerful character, but I do love Kira's suits though.

    Which one is that? I have the RG red, blue and gold frame, now they are coming out with the gold frame custom. All they should need is the green I thought.

    Just so you k ow I personally like the seed and seed destiny. I don't get the whole dislike, it has everything most of the other gundam shows have. Teenage kids is the only one who can pilot the Gundam, he whines about having to pilot it but then finally dose to save his lover/friends/family what ever. But I liked them both.

    this is an old 1/100 kit. it's still value for money for its appearance however it is a relative simple build with just a few runners. The backpack behaves like older kits. Once you install them the model will keep falling backwards. Very simple articulations only. Overall I say go for it if u want a 1/100 scale Astray gold frame to be in your display case.

    It's the fifth of the original five astrays. It has 3 "issues" or versions. I believe there has been an HG of it.

    Re: "What Kit Should I get?" & Recommendations

    Random question, figured I might as well ask here although it's non gundam related (but kit related)

    The recent Frame Arms girl anime has made me want to pick up one. Anyone built a frame arms girl here, how was the build process and what issues does it have?
    I collect: High Grade, SD, Transformers , Figma, Nendoroid, SH Figuarts

    Re: "What Kit Should I get?" & Recommendations

    you guys think its worth talking my local store into selling me a NG 1/100 green frame at the yen price of $25? If they dont sell it in a month or so? They also have 3 RG sinanjus but im not sure I want to commit to buying one of them even at their box price :/

    If you can get it at yen price I don't see why not. As for the RG Sinanju go for it! It really is a good kit, yes it is a pain in the a** polishing the bad nub marks but for a RG it is a good kit.
