    oh we're talking model designs, got you, um I jumped off that wagon pretty quick, I love the designs but not enough to build them, they didn't bring me in like zoids kits

    I felt the same way about 12 years ago, but that’s because I was building crappy high grade kits. That were tiny, undetailed, and not fun to build.

    yea they all use the XXG frame(think that's what it's called) cause it cost-effective for Bandai to produce a wide variety from the same frame. You can say the same about the 2.0 frames, look at all the Zaku variations out there. But the price is one of the main reasons I don't mess with P-Bandai kits no matter how bad I want a specific suit in MG form.



    I'm still waiting on your response about that Perfect Grade Gundam Mk.II :emoji_disappointed_relieved:

    Yup, same goes for the GAT-X kits. In my honest opinion the x-frame used in duel, buster, blitz, and Strike rm frames are the best most stable frames I’ve built so far, followed by the MK II 2.0 frame

    Wish I found this thread sooner. I've been collecting some stuff for my little boy for when he gets older( Lego, Star Wars, etc...)

    My most recent purchase. Finally found one that's sorta true to Gen 1.

    that Mk II 2.0 frame is so outdated in my opinion

    Comparing it to the 2.0 frame of the RX-78-2 which came out in 2008, that 3 year jump in frame engineering shows.

    that maybe true, but the 2.0 frame isnt what hinders Hazel, its his bulky design. And even then, this kit is actually like 80% new parts. out side of the arms, waist and thighs

    Blurred out in the back, yes. The one up front is the Gundam TR-1 Hazel. Similar but not the same. The model share some of the same parts but in story they’re partly based on the same suit, the GM Quel
    This is the MK II I built blurred out in the back

    Ive also got confirmation that my titans colored hazel is coming out as well as preordered the advanced hazel droping in may. As far as buying goes, i think im calling it quits for the rest of the year unless i stumble on a really good deal or its something I just have to have. Also preordered the aape x gundam rx 78-2 3.0
