hello..everyone...been much of a lurker here..and after realise that there are quite a few gundam fans here...I have some questions about a particular model...which is the GP03 denderbium...err..not sure about the spelling ...but the BIG one release by bandai....
I have a friend...who say that he could get it for me for $440 with the dvd and also a poster?...so is that a good deal?? i am very tempted to get it as i have been wanting to get it for a long long time...but always put off by the prices.....sure hope that they come up with the deep striker also..
thanks in advance...

maybe u can search the net for techniques like Max technique and washing. Higher level can try kit bashing, diorama, etc..
fun, but time consuming~~

When people think of Gundam Stardust Memory, they will only think of GP03. Actually, the ultra rare mobile suit in that series is the GP04, which only show up for like 45 secs in the La Vie En Rose space station scene.
The perfect grade one is 1.75m long. I think it's seriously overpriced here, I saw it at a hobby shop in Osaka going for around Sing dollar $360, but then it was on bargain.
Sorry, correction, influenced by too many 1.75m posts oredi, yeah, the model is only 75cm long. :P

I got mine from Den Den City in Osaka last year for about S$350. Haven't had the time to fix it though. The kit is huge. But the GP03 is chisaii desu (small) cause it's 1/144 scale. The bulk of the kit is the armour which is awesome, lots of poseable parts. And the whole thing when completed is about 1m only, not 1.75m. There is no Perfect Grade kit for this, only HGUC. You can take a look at it at Hobby Link Japan. There is another version which I think is the same scale but lower quality. The box looks like it was made in China. This is also selling in Singapore. Think I saw it at Seiyu Bugis Junction. The box is about 1/3 as deep as the more expensive kit and I think it's around S$350! $400++ for the better kit I think is a reasonable buy as Seiyu is selling it at $500++. If u are carrying it in from overseas, be prepared to get stopped by customs. They might think u are bringing in banned stuff.
Btw, if u are not planning to paint this kit, I wouldn't suggest getting it as it's pretty plain. Unlike the Wing Gundam Zero Custom, which looks nice even if not painted.
