I'm a little disappointed in the Waverider configuration, but this is a pretty authentic-looking Zeta. If only the Mega Bloks sets from overseas were this good. :o

Quoting ccy 8086 Usually, I don't pay lot of concern on LDD creation but this time is different, the Zeta, which is my first Gundam given as a present by my grandmother, means a lot to me. I feel Zeta is one of the most beautiful gundam in the world and especially impossible build by LEGO, but, you did it!!! An amazing accurate for the face, body, leg, arm....and all of them are just very accurate. Nothing more I can say but thanks for you to make impossible possible~ 500000/5 for you!!!
Thanks! :) Glad you liked it. Actually I'm the same, My very first meeting with the Gundam universe started with a christmas present, which was a 1/220 scale Zeta Gundam along with a 1/144 Gabthely and Hizack. So yeah it was an important thing for me too :P

Thanks for the detailed review! Tough I think the feets are a bit bigger than they should be but it couldn't be helped. And yes, I'm making Hyaku Shiki in the same scale and I'm determined to build it as accurate as possibly can with LEGO and at this scale. After that I'll resume my Gaplant, but this time it'll use this scale as a starting point, and given that I wan't it to transform, it might turn out even bigger!

Hey Man, Very Nice Work Overall On The MOC. Seeing that you are most concerned with the Head and Leg Areas, I will concentrate on those aspects as I write this. The Zeta Gundams head is a rather unique, so capturing it in LEGO is a tough thing to do, but I feel like you did an excellent job, seeing that it is recognizable. I feel that due to the various angles within such a small area, making an exact replica of the Zeta's head is impossible unless built on a large scale. The Legs, as with the Head, Zeta's legs have a distinct style that makes them quite difficult to capture. I feel that for the scale you are working on, you managed to capture a large amount of detail without messing up the proportions of the Legs. The only issue I have with the Legs is the protruding black pieces, I feel that they either should have been level with the yellow sections or deeper (if possible). Other than that, again, excellent job with this MOC, shame that LEGO's limitations made transforming this MOC impossible without lowering the quality. Also, are you making the Hyaku Shiki, the only Mobile Suit piloted by Char, that boldly adorns the colors akin to that of my own?

Quoting Winter Nis Truly amazing, a very cool tribute to the MS. The head really has the spirit of a gundam head, and the hip is just beatiful. At first I've been thinking that your previous build was better due to snot, but when I realized this was built in DesignByMe, I've been really amazed. I wonder if someday you will be building at a bigger scale ( bigger than your sazabi I mean). All in all, keep up building such fabulous stuff ( If you want to know my new Destiny is pretty finished ( sword included!) Maybe I will try to edit the picture. )
Thanks! Actually I used LDD Extended. I'm not planning on building in a bigger scale(My Jesta was taller than the Sazabi so that's the max I'll ever build) The reason is that I like to build in a size that's not too small but still very playable IF built in real life, and I try to build in a way that these could be bulilt for real(except of course for some of my bigger ones like the Sazabi, that would need a stand)

Quoting Mike C Great work my friend I always look forward to seeing your builds. Thay are out of this world. You have skills. On A side note how do you get the white background on your LDD shots?
Thanks! The white background is default on my machine, actually I can't make a pic that has the background. And I don't know why :D

Quoting Ethan D. WOW!!! Great job! that must have been a pain to make...
Thanks, it took me a while to build it and there were moments where I wanted to give up...but eventually my liking of this suit kept me working on it.

Quoting Marcus Jackson This is a true work of art, especially the head. Quite amazing detail all around, easily the best one I've seen. Whats next for you? Me, I'm nearly finished with the Raphael from the 00 movie, I'm a bit rusty in real bricks, but so far so good.
Thanks! Tough the most difficult part was probably the chest and the legs(I spent two days adjusting those two!). Raphael sound good! And about what's next, I gave you a little hint at the end! :P
