I didn't include that because that was fairly standard Zeon tactics(a successful drop during Operation British and at least one more attempted during the OYW).

I feel like the Star Build Strike is a little too busy. I really liked the Build Strike Full Package, and even the Build Gundam MK II (except the HG looks off from the anime). I also like the Zaku Amazing, but for some reason the HG kit looks terrible. It deserves a Real Grade kitbash or something.

Looks far too gaudy for me. I absolutely loved the look of the original Strike Gundam (I even used to have a Perfect Grade model of it) because it was such a simple and elegant update of the classic RX-79.
The Star Build suffers from the same fate that most of the later SEED-era MS had, being overdesigned to the point of self-parody.

Different strokes I guess. I do like both the Build Strike and Build MK II.

There was a lot of variation to the Strike also. Each different pack gave it a different loadout, but was focused on a single "theme" (like the sword pack).

Of course, I do like the double X HG kit(Gundam X is such an underrated series).

If that is a 1/100 scale it will be way too big for a Riptide I'm thinkin. Consider 1/144 scale kits, although the Wing Gundam kits tend to be a little smaller I guess...

Depending on your loadout, the following are good choices:

Gundam Leopard (From Gundam X)

Gundam Leopard Destroy (From Gundam X)
http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN55022/Gun

I'm really curious about how that Dougram kit will turn out. Max Factory isn't exactly known for making models.

Oh, Tamburlaine, the company that made those Chinese SRW kits is called Model Comprehend. They've also made some knock off and original variants of the Nu Gundam (including a ground combat model), an SD S Gundam, and some other Chinese robots.

Ironwill- I'm pretty sure the MG Build Strike is already out.

Dragonar.

It just popped back into my head.

I want to build a Dragonar D-1.

Did they ever do that updated model when they made the Layzner kits a few years back?

Then I started thinking about all the other stuff Bandai has teased me with over the years, like those Digimon kits that were going to be part of that MG line they were doing Kamen Riders and stuff in. I think it was some Angemon variation and War Greymon. Would have been pretty cool.

Does anyone remember the old Robotech model kits that Revell licensed? Most of the "odd" ones were old kits from the Dougram anime produced by Takara. This isn't exactly Gundam or Bandai, but in the general vicinity and I was hoping maybe someone knew if there has been any reissues or new kits of those as they fetch a hefty price on ebay. While the mechs were quite 80's in design, there were some cool vehicles and a couple of walker platforms that had an interesting design.

Specifically the Tequila Gunner in 1/48 scale pictured below.

just add spikes, chains, and a whole lot of decay. I'm an Texan so we don't have things like..."gw stores" to game in so I shouldn't have too much problem using it as a proxy. I hope

I don't think you can. Look at it this way; the kit only cost $45. So if you bought it and threw away everything but the cannon, you'd be getting the same value in plastic as if you bought a whole GW model.

No, but there is an amazing rotary cannon kit somehwere online that was made for something else. It has an eletric motor to make the barrells spin. I will see if I can find it.

I have a Border Break model I'm converting to use as a riptide. It has a more MechWarrior feel for me than gundam does (I don't really like a lot of the gundam asthetics myself). These just happened to be in roughly the same size range as a Tau Riptide, and cheaper.

I'm also a little partial to this guy:

Do you mean the MG Figurerise or D-arts/Figuarts figures?

Figuarts Wargreymon is out, not sure about the MG Figurerise line beyond Reboot Omegamon/Omnimon.

You can find the D-Arts/Figuarts preorders here:

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/search.aspx?search=digimon

Omegamon/Omnimon was the only MG Figurerse released, IIRC.

The answer to #1 is almost always www.hlj.com, #2 the first tank lists 1/35 in the picture and I'm pretty sure that the Gundam tank is from their Hard Graph line which would also be 1/35.
