    Question: HG Gundam Wing 1/100 Heavy Arms and Sandrock

    My favorite Gundam is "Gundam Wing". I've decided I'd like to build the kits from the show. I'm going to "go big" and attempt the 1/100 series of kits.

    But the line, from the mid-90s, confuses me. I've been all over the Net, searching and reading, and apparently, there were no HG XXG 1/100 kits made for Heavy Arms or Sandrock. Now, I know that there are "Endless Waltz" versions of these kits, but those aren't the actual anime show designs.

    I have a stack of the HG kits, the ones with the gold label on the corner that has the kit number from the series (1 through 7, it appears). I've got Wing Zero, Shenlong and Altron, even Epyon. But none of the kits in the series seem to be Heavy Arms or Sandrock.

    So were there no non-EW kits made for these two robots? Are the EW kits my only option?

    Can anyone out there shed some some light on this issue?

    Thanks in advance!

    The only 1/100 in heavyarms is the MG and the heavyarms custom is a flippin P-Bandai! and nothing for the sandrock other than the custom in HG or MG in the 1/100 scale. That I know of.

    Actually, I would go with the Master Grade kits of the Wings kits. While I don't like the style of the design of those kits, the inner mechanics and subtle detail in them are 10X better than the old (and somewhat crap) 1/100 HG kits from the 1990's.

    I've seen those MG kits, but they seem... intimidating for the novice kit builder. (I haven't built a model since my 20s, so I'm rusty.)

    I guess I'll cut my teeth on the HG kits I've already got, and then attack the MG kits once I've got my chops.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I fully agree with Zeta. Heck my first kit was the MG Aile strike. Now when it came time to do custom work and what not ya I hit the HG line pretty hard. But some of the newer HG are reall good kits.
