That's it I'm done with Japanese toys. This Robot Damashii just fell off my shelf and shattered into a million pieces. I tried to fix it but it ended up crumbling more. Good job Bandon't.

Great b8, but even from your picture you can tell that you just took random parts on that could easily be snapped/glued back on like that knee peg.

Also, your beloved Transformers or any ABS-plastic toy will have the same shit happen if you drop them on a shelf. Protip: get a better shelf.

let me tell you my tale, anon.

When I first caught Gundam UC, I was already 4 episodes late and had already long stopped bothering with the Gundam franchise. The show soon sucked me back and I bought the HGUC kits when I came across them. Paid for the Titanium finish Sinanju and the destroy mode Unicorn.

The kits were fantastic to build as far as HG kits go, and looked nice when put in a display (pic related) but what I found was that articulation was severely lacking.

Cue one day I decided to finally cave and pick up my first RD, the full action Destroy Mode Unicorn. The articulation blew me away. For the price, accessory count, sheer fun to pose, I fell down the slippery slope. I've been picking up lotsa RDs lately, playing catch up.

On top of that, RDs felt less brittle to me than gunpla. Sure, they have their fragile bits here and there, but at least they don't break off as easily as say the beam saber on my HG kits.
That said, the RD does cheat a little to get its awesome articulation (specifically the shoulders).

Also, the RDs generally look less detailed (in my opinion), though you could do a little panel lining on it if you'd like.

I'd say, if you like to build kits, stick with the gunpla. If you like posing and appreciate some fine articulate figures, definitely go with the RD. Or you could just get both.

RD are fun and pretty tough, but modding them - or even fixing nubs and seam lines - is much more perilous than it is on gunpla.

Reasons to pick the RD over gunpla are:
- The model's unavailable as a gunpla
- The gunpla was released before 1999
- You don't plan to paint it up or mod it in any other way and you have the extra cash you'll have to shellout for the RD

The problem is Bandai has on average adopted the use of polystyrene far more in the model kits to increase the number of parts and complexity of kits. A lot of MG kits are super sturdy, especially some of the early ones who have simpler builds with larger and more stable ABS parts.

Best example I've got is MG Shin Musha Gundam, I seriously wish every kit felt that durable and bulky. If you compare that to the MG 3.0 Gundam its like comparing glass to metal. Sure the 3.0 looks amazing with its color seperation, but you can get the same effects with paint on Musha and not worry about it exploding on impact with the ground.

And honestly I like the scale of the MG line far more than the Robot Damashi line.

just going to point this out because autism, but Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn != Gundam UC. UC stands for Universal Century, which is shorthand for the entire timeline that Unicorn is a part of.

polite sage.

Nice quints. But I agree on the scale, that 6-8" size of the MGs feels better than 4-5" of RDs.

Unicorn's official abbreviation is UC, which is the whole reason why it was named that. It's a pun.

Not necessarily, all the recent SEED kits and the occasional UC kit like Jesta or Sinanju Stein are rock-solid. MG's in general are pretty durable on par with your typical action figure other than the ones that transform like Zeta or Unicorn or have too many moving parts like Astray and the recent 3.0/Ver Ka's, but those two tend to go hand-in-hand.

One thing I also like about MG's the heft-even if RD's use better plastic, they still feel really hollow and lightweight.

Someone took this picture off the /toy/book and is trolling with it. The original picture was showing someone in the group taking apart their RD to get a better lower torso/hip rotation out of it.

The xacto knife was used to repair it. The funnel is made of cheap rubber so it doesn't break when you bend it slightly. It didnt hit its head. You people are cynical for nor eason.

even factoring durability aside, i've been told even MG kits have their fair share of limits in terms of articulation.

That said, I do love their articulated manipulators. That should be a standard on ALL kits.

I had the ridiculously overloaded Perfect Strike Gundam shelf dive down to a hardwood floor and the shield popped off. That was it. Dropped my Blaze Raven the second after I opened it, not a scratch. RDs ain't no joke.
