I love these kinds of things. I have entire shelves filled with Kotobukiya's HMM 1/72 scale Zoids line. Easily totaling $3000AU. It's an expensive hobby, this kind of thing, but I really like it.
Unfortunately, that's the thing with a model kit. It *literally* is fresh plastic from a model-making factory. However, you could build the model up and paint and weather it to look more worn and war-weathered.Solkard said:For me, the appeal of Bartabos was that it looked very worn, stripped down, and lanky; a relic war machine from some ancient conflict, similar to the mech in Broken Blade. This model looks all shiny and new, like it was fresh from the factory. Meh.
i doubt the MG line will ever die but I do agree that with the quality of HG gunpla coming out these days it wouldn't surprise me if the MG line started to look more like the PG line in the future, in terms of variety.Coruptin said:So, where were you guys when MG was kill?
Seriously, with the move for more intricate HGs and non-MG 1/100 kits like RE, it just feels like the MG line is dying. The shift towards P-Bandai exclusives doesn't help either.
There aren't a TON of stickers, but there are still that are pretty much necessary to finishing the look of the model. That is, unless you're willing to paint. For myself, I actually use tweezers or some other kind of small tool to help me place stickers on my models. It allows me to be more precise than I usually could. Hope this helps!Objectable said:How sticker intensive is the kit? Cause I suck at stickers.
