    Just reminding everyone that The Fathom Event for the 40th Anniversary of Gundam Char's Counterattck is tomorrow, Thursday at 7:00PM at select theatres. It will be in Japanese with English subtitles.
    Gundam 40th Anniversary Celebration: Char's Counterattack | Fathom Events

    There will also be a free poster issued to each person watching. I just received it at my Marketing office at AMC, and it's kinda similar to the last poster given away for Gundam Narrative. I didn't get a picture, but its basically a Gunpla diorama scene of the RG Nu Gundam fighting the RG Sazabi. I forgot to check the count but it looks like we got about 100 sheets. We aren't selling out at the moment, as my theatre has only sold 31 tickets in one of our bigger auditoriums.

    I'm think more as in castle/fortress.

    I think these are the first packs for the suit that I'm interested in.

    I just found these on a trip I had no clue they existed I got the brown zeon tank, the hover truck, and these 2 were the only suits left.

    I had to spruce the suits up with some paint

    They didn' have the Gouf so I ordered a lot of others off e-bay.

    ... hello first MS girl model I will buy... hopefully soon they'll preview the Wodom Pod unless her Diver reveal means it's not happening at this rate.

    tell me, is my taste for purple and orange a bit much? or do I go with pure red psychoframe? of course, Unicron glows Orange-Yellow in the movie, but his Armada toy had purple for the hemispheres.

    I think the purple will look better then red, atleast adding more contrast in the color scheme

    Thanks for the reminder, I was about to post this too.

    Here's what I found last year, the best score for me was the MG Jegan:


    My workplace scheduled a meeting between 8AM to 10 AM. Hopefully we are done quick and I can dash down to Anaheim before everything is gone.

    Love that warehouse shot @Wrecker217 , thanks for sharing it!

    I dig the purple and orange, I say go with it if you like it. But I’m also a fan of G2 colors and I’m putting together a pink/purple figure shelf, so some people might say I’m crazy.

    As one of the early RGs, be extremely careful when breaking the articulated frame in. Hold the parts firmly very near to the joints while bending them slowly (and make sure you've trimmed all of the flash and bits first). Once you've freed up all the joints and gotten the parts assembled, you should be good. But that first step has foiled a lot of builders in the past with very easy breakages.

    You're paying for the parts and Precision Engineering more so than a large scale model. You can probably get it cheaper elsewhere

    Technically, (most) Gundams should be way bigger than (most) Transformers.

    If you want something more relative to actual scale with mainline, Generations Transformers, 1/60 is the best option for that. From what I've gathered, most deluxe car-formers are roughly around 1/32 - 1/60, so Perfect Grades are probably the best scale to fit with a Transformers display, but I think 1/100 MG kits can be fudged, and there is a lot of variety and they aren't as pricey as PG kits.

    Theres also the 1/48 mega size, buts the only releases were the RX-78 and the Unicron. And they been out of production for while, so their probably hard to find for a good price.
