Sorry to revive an old thread, BUT, having watched Gundam Wing/Endless waltz as a child, I always regarded it as an awesome series but...never understood it. I have a friend at work who is into gunpla, so I decided to hop back into it, starting with my favorite mobile suit of all time--TALLGEESE! So, I decided to finally watch MSG which I thoroughly enjoyed, followed by Char's Counterattack, which was a great closure to that story. I began 0080th, but decided to re-watch Gundam Wing, and while the voice acting/acting was cheesy, I thoroughly enjoyed it even more since I could understand all that took place. Interest parallel b/t Amura/Heero and Char/Zechs. I plan on watching Endless Waltz again, but I want to either continue 0080th or start Zeta.
Currently building a MG Tallgeese II, and eventually a RG RX-78 and Char's Zaku II--then last, my HG Mercurius x Vayeate set, which I'll go all out on.
Glad to have found this old thread
I started with Wing on Toonami as a kid as well. Also didn't understand the story much but still loved it. The only other series I watched fully was 00 in high school and it was fantastic, highly recommend. I've been meaning to watch Wing again and maybe try some of the others.
As for Gunpla, I pulled the trigger back in 2019 and picked up an MG Exia kit from Gundam 00. Also got an Armored Core kit of White Glint, which isn't Gundam related but it is a fucking cool giant mecha.
Hell yeah.... Stardust Memory is one of the shows I'll usually recommend to anyone new to Gundam UC stuff. That show and 8th MS Team really locked me into the franchise.Always love 0083 Stardust Memory since primary school.
Here's a 3rd party 'mechanicore' 1/72 scale GP-02.

Man, 8th MS team is another one of my fav reminded me alot of Mospedea! Another good one is War in the Pocket. Cried my eyes out as a kid lolHell yeah.... Stardust Memory is one of the shows I'll usually recommend to anyone new to Gundam UC stuff. That show and 8th MS Team really locked me into the franchise.
Man this kit looks like a BEAST! Great job! I seen some reviews on this on youtube amd the box looks like luggage it's so massive. it's scale is pretty damn close to the 1/60 scale of Perfect Grades... bet this would make good "friends" with the PG GP01 ;-) (I really wish they'd make a RG GP02 to go with the GP01 RG's.... get on that shit, Bandai! Please?)
Actually I been reading the "0083 Rebellion" manga since last month and holy shit is it a cool take on the OVA so far. They add/flesh out a LOT more of the scenarios and characters.... it's like the super deluxe wicked extended version of Stardust Memory, so I highly recommend it.
At one point in the manga an alternate loadout and rebadged "Zeon-ized" GP02 pops up after Gato captured it. And really wanna custom build my own version of that based off the HGUC MLRS variant of the old GP02 kit... (wouldn't take too much... mostly just extra Zaku II weapons, which if your like me and built a bunch of The Origin zaku kits, you likely got sandwich bags stuffed full of them. And the shield looks of the same type from Cima's Gelgoog)
