Gunpla TV Episode 232 – HG Rouei & Helmwige Reincar!

Last week’s episode turned out to be pretty big but I think we may find a return to normalcy this week with our HG Iron-Blooded Orphan kits. They may be small but they stir some strong emotions. That’s my lead in to say, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Kits featured in this episode:

1/144 HG MS Option Set 8 & SAU Mobile Worker
1/144 HG Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex
1/144 HGBF Papagguy
1/144 HG Rouei
1/144 HG Hekija
1/144 HG Helmwige Reincar

And be sure to check out the ongoing Playing with Plamo 2017 Modeling Competition on HobbyLink TV! You can find the details here!

  2. Helmwige Reincar is now one of my favourite IBO designs (minus crotch sword holder)! I hope a 1/100 FM will come out for this soon, along with the other knight like MS like the Graze Ritter!

    Also, If I put an led unit into my gunpla, is it still ok for the beginners?

  3. Fingers crossed for that RAcaseal. Spent many many hours playing PSO on dreamcast. Oh nastalgia.

  4. ‘Rouei’ is pronounced ‘Row-eh.’ Coincidence that Lafter and Azee used it in the Battle of Edmonton? I think NOT!

    Looking forward to seeing how the FM Rex improves on the HG.

  9. I have to agree with him about the feet. I hate any figure with small feet, it makes it so difficult to stand. Also, i hate bearguys.

  54. that Barbatos Rex is a FREAKING BEAAAAST

    Reply
  55. I think FF Figurized busts are impossible. SE hasn’t exactly lent their characters on other companies ever since they made the Play Arts Kai line.

    I think they prefer everyone to appear on Play Arts Kai or Trading Arts or whatnot 🙁

  56. “How’s it hanging?””Slightly to the left” HAHAHA

  57. It’s hard to believe Todd hasn’t played Xenosaga. That’s something he should fix. It’s a great series. Just make sure you have lots of popcorn handy for the cutscenes.

  59. ‘Nother episode, more fun.

    I’m not super excited about this option set, more for the next one, but hey more stuff is always cool. Not a fan of the Lupus Rex, and the HG looks like a mediocre kit due to sticker use and weird proportions, not a fan of the design either so an easy pass, even for the FM. Never saw the appeal in Beargguys and Papagguy does not do anything to change that opinion, looks classy though.

    All these HG kits are on my wishlist right now. HG Rouei was there from the start and never came off. I’ve built the Hyakuren and enjoyed it, but I did much prefer the design of the Rouei more, and was sad we didn’t get a kit by the end of S1. I’m happy we get one now though, and although it has a bit of stickers and barely noticeable hollow parts, it’s on the wishlist and it’s never coming off.

    Hekija is also a kit i’m interested in. A shame about the hollow parts on the feet, I wouldn’t of minded it if it didn’t have that thruster gimmick or the toe that arches upward, but still getting one. Fan of the MS, fan of the pilots and I need to show my respects to Lafter. :'(

    Helmwige Reincar was a kit that appealed to me a bit at first, but I wasn’t terribly excited about it, then the colorscheme was shown and I wasn’t a huge fan of it, and seeing the mustard yellow didn’t help. Yet after seeing the box and the kit a few times, I now really want one. Funny what time can do to your opinions sometimes. I’m definitely getting all these kits though, and i’ve got good expectations. 🙂

  67. The reveal of the lupus rex was kinda underwhelming for me, I really hope the new Vidar will look better.

    Reply
  68. Oh cool I had completely forgotten there was a KOS-MOS kit. Unless I win it(unlikely) I’ll go ahead and pick one up.

    Reply
  69. I’ve seen some comments online criticizing the fact that you can’t upload any pictures of your progress off of the hobbylink.tv website, but I understand the rule. I agree with Syd about how people finish a great project and then they enter it into every subsequent contest online or otherwise. Nothing wrong with that I guess…but there’s a certain fairness with making something specifically for a major contest.

  70. I can win a plastic girl, touched by a real girl? Sickkkkk

  75. The Reincar might look better with the Rouei’s legs.

  76. I really love your reviews, but it would be nice t show some more gimmicks and/or articulation.

    So…what were they thinking with putting the sword there?

    Reply
  86. Can’t wait to start working on my kit for the competition, currently it’s sitting in my private warehouse waiting for a pre-order to come in stock before I ship. I’ll be making a 1/100 Space Shuttle Enterprise this year.

  102. I like the Rouei.

    Reply
  103. Nice episode as always guys. Excited to get the new 1/100 Rex. The Full Mechanics line has been my bread and butter. Sort of related but do you guys think the 1/144 arm proportions for the rex are a little wacky? It seems like they’re much larger proportionally on the HG than the 1/100. The HG has a bit of an ape look going to me.

    Reply
  104. I am looking forward to your review of the HG Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex.

    Reply
  105. That helmwige designs and color reminds me shovel knight. Probably going to buy it

    Reply
  106. i like the Iron blooded orphans themed episode 🙂 thanks for their reviews 🙂

    Reply
  107. Rouei looks pretty good, but think the weapon is ridiculously big.

    Reply
  108. Great show as always guys. I’ve got a question about the playing with plamo contest. Under the beginner category it mentions hand painting is ok but what about airbrushing? If I use an airbrush to detail up some parts but not to do a full paint job would it still qualify for beginner or get bumped up to intermediate?

    Reply
  109. Lets do something smaller: Breaks open two expensive kotobukia kits 😀
    Played both pso2 and xenosaga but i like pso2 alot better 🙂
