Here's something interesting I stumbled across.  I'd need some confirmation from Ako to see if they are who I believe to be "Evolution Hobby" in HK, or just a distributor for them; and even confirmation if they are legit:
http://www.hk-toys.net/

But for those who want to grab a 1/35 scale Zaku II, or those 1/35 scale Zaku II heads, or even the 1/35 scale Ball....

Having built the 1/35 scale Zaku II head, I can say that it was very well engineered and came together very nicely.  Very good casting, with high quality resin.  Thought I'd post this to see if I can get some info.  The website is a bit rudimentary.  But it's a start.  At least a source for 1/35 zeon products... and hopefully we can see some more 1/35 zeon stuff form these guys.


Hmmm... $190 for the completed ball and $640 for the non completed.  :? Is that to deter recasters? Because that won't work! :lol:

Actually, I don't think it would surprise me if this shop wasn't already a recast shop.  I'm pretty sure the prices are mixed up.  I remember ako quoting the price for the 1/35 ball kit (unfinished) was somewhere in the neighborhood of $190.  Not too bad a price since the kit is fairly large.

Regardless, the website needs a bit of work.  It just looks too amateur as a store front.

I saw the same thing, and it stopped me in my tracks. However, I finally noticed that they have the pricing/decription listed in the text above the drop-down.

Sometime next Spring, Bandai will release MG Hi-ν Gundam.
 Instead of Hajime Katoki, Yutaka Izubuchi will be behind this MG release.

In a related note MG wise, Mg Crossbone X-1 Kai Full Cross will come out on Jan.
It will come with peacock smasher and murasame blaster weapons.

Though, the revelation that a peacock smasher is coming out sure does torpedo my casting of one.  But, if this release does not have the shot lancer, I will still plan on casting that one.

Definitely good news, but what's the X-1 Kai Full Cross? I thought the only variations were the X-1, X-1 Kai, and X-1 Kai Kai (Skull Heart), so I've obviously missed something.

Yeah what is the full cross?  And fulcy, I hope you still do the shot lancer, my crossbone is waiting patiently in my closet for it.  :wink:

And on a side note....YES!  MG Hi-Nu!  Looks like bandai read my post on the model wish list thread, now if they can just do that MG Hy-gogg and MG Hazel. (Although,if that image above is what it will look like, I'm not sure how stoked I am.  I much prefer the core-works version.  Hopefully I'll like it more when I see the finished product)

:? A MG Hi-Nu Gundam kit, I think that the market is already over saturated with Hi-Nu and Nu Gundam kits...

But, now I do not have to shell out as much money for a Hi-Nu Gundam, I can add it to my stash, I already have the MG Nu Gundam.  :)

What I would like is a MG Destiny Gundam  :P  :lol:

The Hi-Nu is a nice addition. Would also be nice to see the Hygogg, Jegan and The-O...

Oh! That one! I'm totally getting that one.

Yeah, the Hi-Nu and Nu are totally oversaturated. I'm actually quite surprised that Bandai jumped in. Probably didn't want to be outdone by all the resin.

In fairness, there's a lot of people who can't afford the resin kits but still want a Hi-Nu... myself included. Filling the market I guess :)

I have to agree, all of the conversion kits for the Hi-Nu Gundam are nice, but ouch!!! Expensive :o

I can buy 3 MG kits for the cost of a Hi Nu Gundam conversion kit...

Hi-Nu is in one of my to-do conversion list. Looks like I can scratch that and get the MG. Maybe spruce it up a little bit.

I wonder if the HWS variant is in the MG pipeline...  :roll:

Bandai is really doing good! I also want a hi-v, IMO I can't stand the nu, although I do like the evolve 5 ver and the resin hi-v cost to much for me. So I really cant wait for the hi-v to drop! :D

MG Hi-Nu, YES! I'm also in the can't really afford (or even find a good cast of) the resin conversion. Besides, after my JRP is done and I do something (I hope) for the KKKKK, I'll be really sick of modding for a while...

So many cool kits, so little time! :o
