HG 1/144 GN-001 Gundam Exia

Hot on the heels of the Astrea Custom parts, I get my HG 1/144 Exia which is the one I will be using to make my Astrea F. I was surprised by how tiny the box was, again its a 1/144, so it's a tiny model.

HG 1/144 GNY-001 Gundam Astrea Custom Parts

This was my first Gunpla purchase of 2008. I got 4 sets of Gundam Astrea 1/144 parts, since they will only be available with this months issue of Dengeki Hobby magazine they will more than likely disappear. It actually comes with the face part to create the GNY-001F Gundam Astrea Type F. Thats the one that I think I will build, it's got that "the red comet would pilot that" look to it. It kinda reminds me of Nephtis from ZOE: The 2nd Runner also.

This was also the first time ever that I have owned a Japanese hobby mag. I had no idea they were that thick, they are like freaking books. I think until the next set of custom parts come around I won't be buying any.
