just a thought  :idea: ... ill never buy bootlegz anyway... mas maganda lang kc tignan lalo na ung hinu compared sa orig.. parang customized sya eh...  :lol: (no offense sir shoegaser ha :mrgreen: )

@shoegaser, i believe you have authentics based on the pics...so how was bootlegs compared to orig?

@kurtcobainer
oo ng andaming parts and runners eh. i put 10+ hours parehas (nasoundtrip ko na buong discography ng opeth) kaya para kang nagbuo ng "medyo" MG haha! i got both for 2k (i can't really afford those MG's since I'm still in college) pero satisfied naman ako  :-D

@gwenmoyk
ok yung plastic niya bro, not that up par with bandai's pero imho better than those NG's. i wasn't able to get the Hi-Nu with the "Wings of Light" - limited edition kasi yun and wala na akong makita, pero this one is ok naman and some reviews from the internet rate its details better than the HGUC version. btw, the Nu had an extra set of fin funnels (not pictured), and pwede pa ikabit yun along with the original set. it looks like this:

yes, it also comes with those beam sabers. pwede na rin for a bootleg no?

anyway, here's another recent acquisition:

an HG aile strike and an ivory white chinese dragon opium pipe i bought on impulse from a shady garage sale to celebrate the chinese new year  :-D

ganun din iniisip ko.. parang mas OK yan sa HGs and NGs... ung NU mas balanced tignan kung may extra funnels... sing laki ba sila ng 1/100 ng bandai?

and oh, nice pipe! gratz...  :razz:

the nu is taller than those 1/144's but shorter than the 100's and the hi-nu is roughly the same height as the 1/100's. bastard scaling eh haha!  :-o well, they say you get what you pay for. but these MC model kits have better plastic than those TT Hongli ones. thanks bro! anyway, i'm GAS-ing right now for a legit strike noir and stargazer. might check out greenhills quite soon.  :-D

Nice, will this be in your blog? I wanna tune in for the WIP. You did this with plaplates?

The base is a Unicorn display stand, that came as a free collectible with a Dengeki Hobby issue, and later came with limited edition1/144 HGUC Unicorn kits.  Same with the Sinanju.

The  modified V-fin is a combination of the stock V-fin reversed onto itself, and a secondary pair made with HIPS (or plaplate, as the case may be). The rest of the bust (shoulders, chest) will be made from scratch with plaplates/HIPS for the armor and beams/runners for the framework. It may progress into a full articulated "statue" that will measure around 55cm in height, which is taller than the mega-sized RX78-2.

Check out my blog regularly.  I'm currently working on a "secret" project, but I'll be doing this from time to time.

Oh my bad. I didn't know that was the bust the HGUC kit was talking about. I thought it was.. y'know, smaller... 55cm, for a bust.. wow, that's big.

Will do check your blog.

No.  If I proceed to make it a full statue, with legs and arms, it'll be 55cm tall.  The bust itself is only about 5cm high

The Ronin will be a meanwhile mainstay on my worktable, so, I guess it'll be on a lot of WIP pictures soon, so as long as the shot angle is concerned.

Mga sir, ang difference lang po ba ng MG Unicorn Banshee sa Limited Edition na Banshee ay yung kulay lang nung ilaw? Di ko kase makita ang difference sa pictures, I'm not sure about the inner stuff.

PS: We are accepting pre-orders na po ng MG Unicorn Banshee, check my sig! :)
