I'm just sooo psyched about this line of kits and hoping they keep going. So we know what the first 4 releases are: Wappa, Zaku Head, Hovertruck, and Arm... But what else would make good UC Hardgraph subjects? Will they even make more than that?

I can't believe I didn't think of this before, but the Launch Shuttle I did in 1/100 from First Gundam isn't much larger than the Hovertruck appears to be. Might make a good release. Lots of figs for that one and a Haro too! I'd buy one!

Would a Dopp or Core Fighter be possibilities? What about a Magella Tank? Too big?

I think a core fighter would be possible.

I'm really excited about the hovertruck. It was always one of my favorite vehicles.

Why not the tanks? They would make a logical choice because bandai could market these kits to gundam builders as well as military modelers looking for something similar but different.

And an arm....Are they going to piecemeal a 1/35 zaku in the end from these kits?

I mean, either the torso will be a big kit together, or the zaku chest and crotch will be separate kits.

Maybe bridge kits. That could be something really cool actually.

I think Magella would possibly be too big, but it might come if Bandai figure out the track molding (with easy snapping) for the MG guntank.

I've always been a fan of the Fanfan  :P  :lol:

Bandai did a head, an arm a truck a bike. What is missing in this list ? a flying stuff and a weapon. As I havn't see the 8th MS team I can't tell you any name of any flying device or gun but I think the next kit will probably be one these to think.
Yes the wanppa can fly but its not huge.

I really want to see the Type 61, if only so I can repaint it as a captured Zeon tank in use during Operation Odessa. :3

Damn you all!!!! Dopp and Corefighter!!! :evil:

Fanfan would be cool too. As well as a Magella even though it's big. But hey, the Type 74 is big too!

I want to see a big foot.  Then I can cut up a 35th scale figure and have him/her lying there with supposedly, the other half under said foot.... and just have a crowd of folks standing around not sure of exactly what to do and stuff...

hmm.. too morbid?

Works for me! That foot (gundam-type) probably wouldn't be too difficult to scratch-build either.

No. "Morbid" would be if the foot was crushing a school bus or playground. As for me, I'd model it crushing a 1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition. And that'd be "poetic justice" (there's nothing quite like having an ex-wife as a focus for all your angst).

Heh.. or along the idea of arms and such.... The "hand" and arm of a Hygogg or Z'Gok, Gogg, Zu-gok-E...  hmm... maybe its a little too big

But the idea is the more unconventional and unexpected things out of a 35th scale gundam world....  Like the stupid little cars that Camille drives around in, from various scenes out of Zeta.  A beam saber/heat axe still lit and just melting through cars and people....

But yes... the possibilities are endless.  Hopefully this line becomes popular and they are able to pump out more of the stuff..

Hi.

Would be great see a Type 61 tank or a Gundam foot-ancle. Fine to see a diorama with the hovertruck and a captured Wappa or a hovertruck close to the Gundam's foot in a mantenaince equipment.

I talked with large last weekend and I said it remember me the Marvel comics figures with the bonus parts (lots of figures with some bonus parts to complete one giant Centinel, Apocalipse, etc, etc). I can imagine buying lots of hardgraph model just to build one 1/35 Zaku or 1/35 RX-79. :shock:  :shock:

Anyway...

Hello,
I will be happy with just about any model in this series and scale.

I got my scout last week, and I think its a great model. can't wait to start it. The hovertruck also look grea, The cabin just waits to filled with something, and there are so many figure to paint there...

I read somewhere that they are taking some time off after the hovertruck to think about what to do next in this line. I hope they don't wait too much, I'll be very excited to see Armoured vehicles of any kind, and flying machines also.

About a full Gundam in 1/35.. If I'll bring something like that home, my wife will probably let me sleep with it outside  :P

I think a core fighter with Amuro is inevitable...

Who'd want a 1/35 gundam?  It's just too big... :shock:

I would, it would be very unique, but only If its a plastic kit made by Bandai, since G-System is way too expensive.

I suppose that the next step would be UG Gundam model. 1/35 Uber Grade Gundam. I speculate that it would be four times the price of a PG model at least, since it would be four times the volume  :razz:

55 centimeters works out to a little over 1/35 scale...

Yuck. People who prefer big scale prefer improved detailing, such as the pistons and removable armour that is on the UC Hardgraph Zaku head
