All potential starters please take note of Guideline 2 B & C before asking about what type of kit you can build. Thanks in advance  :)


Sorry to be the first one to bother you as usual but how about the "Specail Operations" Jesta Cannon? Is that elligible for the "open" Catagory? :)

The box says: "Special Operations Heavy Assault Mobile Suit", which doesn't really clear anything up.

Both MAHQ and the Gundam Wikia page refer to it as a prototype, and apparently only one exists.

The magic word is "prototype". Which means that the next magic word is probably a "no". ;) This suit falls in a similar category as the Gouf Custom. It's Mr. Gunny's call, at the end of the day, though.

I haven't watched the last episode of Unicorn so I'm not familiar with how many there supposedly are. If you can believe MAHQ there are 3 pilots so if there is only one Jesta Cannon then it must be pretty chummy in the cockpit :o As the normal Jesta has the same designation and was allowed in the last build then I can't see any reason to not allow the Cannon version. Prototype is not mentioned in the Bandai description of the MS so until someone can point out where in the instructions it is refered to as a prototype it can be used.

I've done some further digging on the subject of our perennial favourite the Gouf Custom and it would appear that it shows up in other hands than just Norris Packard and is in fact just another variant of the Gouf albeit with a rather misleading name. The new short film that came with the 08MS Team Bluray set also casts some doubt on the rarity of the Gouf Flight type as well. After what I've found and seen I'm inclined to let both the Gouf Custom & Gouf Flight in if there are no objections.

@flamingeyebrows: After all your Pommy impersonations you did I finally give you the option to use swiss army knives and you ask about a UC MS. WTF!!!  ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Teehehehe I am gonna assume 'pommy impersonations' means whinging instead of penchant for queues. :P Sorry to be the annoying thorn in your side but I never said I would build a non-UC suit.

I mean I am a uc fan boy as well but those who want to build some alternate universe suits should be allowed.

See, I was being a devil advocate/ campaigner for minority rights. :P

I am actually considering non UC suits as well though. It's just that the new Jesta cannon look sooo good. If I go with Jesta Cannon, I still might build a non-UC suit according to the guide lines without entering it as penance for all the grief I caused you with my questions. :)

The only way that will happen is if you pluck every single eyebrow one by one without stopping  :goomba:

But that will destroy my very identity and I don't really have the spare time right now to go on a soul searching quest and discover that 'I don't need the eyebrows, I AM the eyebrows.' :P

You mention transport. Does a 'mechanic' (for want of a better word) classify as a specialist as Im considering an open entry around a retrieval/fix'em up/chop shop idea.

You've been beaten to the punch but a mechanic is okay.

Is a false flag decoy ok as a specialist?

Also do 2 unbuilt kits need to be used or can 1 be shown ie the frame with the victim which is to be broken down for scrap? Thanks.
