What else but Char's customised mechs! 8)

We have Char's Ball (ok i know what that sounds like but...) :roll: :twisted:

Hyakushiki from Gundam FIX series, ver Ka! Additional parts for Hyakushiki Kai, 100shiki Kai Mass Production ver and Full Armor Shiki!!!! 8) Only problem is - I find the Kanji on the shoulders less attractive than the original ver... :?

Anyone else collects the FIX series? I have a few myself, incl... the DEEP STRIKER :twisted:

I imagine it is only a matter of time before they make a Gundam Fix Sazabi (I guess it would be in the "Zeonagraphy" or whatever it is line, actually) that has parts that turn it into the Nightingale.

eagerly waiting for that... :P

More 'interesting' Ball models, including Ramba's ver (LMAO) :twisted: Wonder why they dont include the parts for the 08MST's double cannon version of the Ball?

I have this awesome Japanese fan-book (doujinshi) called "Ball Wars" which is packed with full-color CG models of "what if" Ball variants. It includes:

EWAC Ball
Pop (a submarine Ball)
Dark Stalker (a black Ball)
Ball II (with a huge cannon, boosters, and missiles)
Wild Hawk (a Ball with Pile Bankers and a gatling gun)
Soccer Ball (which looks like one and is armed with 2 nuclear missiles)
Tank Ball (complete with treads and cowcatcher)
Super Ball (a Ball with FOUR CoreBoosters attached to its back!)
ReEntry Ball (which looks like a Badminton shuttlecock)
GunBall (a Ball which looks like a Gundam head)
Aputamasu (a Ball styled like the Apsalus)
and the Ballgeese (yes, a Ball with Tallgeese parts)

plus a really cool double-hulled Salamis called the Ouroboros.

The book is totally nutty. I love it.

Mmh nice scan of the Hiaku Shiki. But it'll wait 'til I have more money. I bought the DeepStriker but I'll wait for the others, and as usual, all the ones I like are the more expensive (17 red and blue, Ex-S).

I've read on a french board that next GFF should be more useless and uninteressant Zonography Zaku, but also next GFF may be the Xi - Peneloppe whatever :shock:

Here's the page with this info :

If the next GFF is is the Xi/Penelope then it will probably be my first GFF... and also the most expensive... Penelope alone is almost the same size as the deep striker. I still really really hate Bandai's duel suit gffs. From a practical perspective its completely naff; if i want a white f91 AND an f90 mk1 id have a set of parts for each left over, for example. Such a waste. Course from a marketing perspective...

The word from those close to the source is that there will be a Xi Gundam, but that it will NOT be convertible to the Penelope...

Grebo > hahah!! very interesting book!! Are those balls based on the older ball models (OYW cheap stuff), or the limited edition -79K (from 08MST)? Some of those names sound very interesting... like SuperBall, Soccer Ball and Ballgeese (LMAO)

The Zeonography looks interesting at first but the latest series... are boring. :|

As for the next GFF, the next should be Zeta right? I havent see any pics of it yet (that pic in your link dont seem like a GFF). And i'm very surprised that Xi Gundam is next!!! OMG!~ And its convertible to Penelope?!...... A MUST BUY~~!! 5500 Yen!!

The Zeta Plus is a very nice GFF design, it comes wif the Booster options, very very cool! I got the blue one, its a very nice color scheme but unfortunately the painting is very bad for my kit. Very disappointed. So unless u are able to see for yourself (meaning you're not doing online shopping or such), be prepared for bad paintwork (I'm not sure if its just an isolated case).


The F91 is nice too, i really like "Captain Harrison's F91" color scheme - the Navy Blue F91 (GFF 21a)

GFF Zeta

Next Zeonography is Johnny Ridden's Gelgoog/High mobility Gelgoog; and Mass produced Gelgoog/Cannon Gelgoog. GFF Xi Gundam a hoax? :|

Mmh I'm not sure, but maybe they consider GFF and Zeonography as two different collections (Zeonography being quite uninteressant if you ask me).

(also about your previous post, and Grebo just said it looks like it WON'T be convertible to Penelope :wink: )

Mmh this Zeta is nice, but the color sheme is lame (as usual). This one lacks the booster version of the 17 red and blue :twisted:

For instance I really prefere the EX-S regular version over the EX-S Task Force. Red and blue and yellow is boring...

As I think I have said before, I have it on good authority that the Xi Gundam IS indeed coming up, but it will NOT be convertible to the Penelope.

On the one hand...
What a shame, Penelope is a cool ms
On the more reasonable, sane hane...
thank friggin god... allow paying $$$$$$$$ for a gff no matter how great it is.
I did some size comparisons, Penelope is about 3 times bigger than ds excluding main cannon in ma mode and the xi is already twice as bulky as the exs :?
