At some point, God Gundam was Burning Gundam in the English version of the anime. Never watched it though, but it was like that for whatever reasons.

Unsure if you wish to collect the G Gundam, and somewhat related, kits all in 1/144 scale for affordability or whatever personal reason(s), but if you like the God Gundam or Shining Gundam with more mobility and articulation, you definitely will want to consider the MG versions as they used the “action frame” as Bandai called it. Unfortunately, only about 4 Gundams from that series, which meant 4 kits, or 6 kits if you include the Hyper Modes, were released. And God Gundam in particular do not have too much detail, not too much panel lines, on its outer armor.

Do wish they release few more kits from G Gundam with action frames.

Oh, I know that. I’m saying that my father didn’t know which “Burning Gundam” to get so he got “Star Burning Gundam” as my Christmas gift. I had thought calling it by its dub name would make it easier for him but…maybe not. XD But I will keep the recommendations in mind! Do remember though, I don’t care so much about the details of the kit, I just have fun building them.

I got original Rx78 in my Xmas present. I believe there’s too many “Gundam” to let parent decide which we’re wanted. As before, my family given me a clue “Gundam”, that’s too many question mark in my mind… :joy:

Bringing this to the new decade ujyhtgrfe–

SO not much in the way of progress, aside from putting some of Epyon’s decals on and then actually giving away my Hyper Captain to a friend who was moving away, but I do have Zaku II’s head pieced together! No pictures yet, but I just find it so funny that you can move its eye. I can do a lot with that picture-wise. XD

Also got the gundam head mug. I’m keeping extra pieces in it since it can close, at this rate I’ll need a bigger container to keep them in instead of a cup though. XD

Heh. The Gundam head mug? The one that molded like Gundam head or the one that have Gundam head painted on? Probably the former right, since the latter one is just basic mug and cannot recall if it has lid.

Yep, the actual head, I’ll get a picture of it when I can. XD

Fun! Will have to look into that later.

How much you got it for?

About $25 on Amazon, here he is~!

He should be glad it is only temporary. Disembered few kits last time for clean up, which stored their heads separately with other parts, and so far, they had not seen the light of day! :laughing: :rofl:

That is fast work that you did. Good work on the decal.

Thank you~! It was harder to get on than normal, I wasn’t building it at home so I only had my nippers with me. Normally I use the tweezers but didn’t bring them. XD

Well now, he’s looking rather fierce! …And somewhat annoyed, probably because his arms became such trial and error and I haven’t finished his weapons/decals. Such an impatient Zaku!

Very nice. For my Char’s Zaku, all the online shops were sold out, so I had to buy a Green Zaku II C-5 and paint it red. :smiley:

Thank you so much!! I guess my mother lucked out when she bought it as my Christmas gift. XD

Hmmmmm but now I need to figure out what I’ll do next, I don’t have any kits in stock that I haven’t built now that Char’s Zaku is done. Don’t really have the materials to fix the non-gunpla SDGF figures either… =3=

that’s why its not bad to have a backlog of kits for a situation like this.

I would, but I’m still new to this and don’t always have the money to buy kits. :sweat_smile: I’ll probably work on Zaku II and Epyon’s decals later today.

That’s fine, was just putting it out there. Hopefully you’ll have enough detailing to do before your next kit.
