  1. That transformation of the Valkyrie kit was intense! The original toy was so much easier! I actually have one of those original toys (white and red version), I need to dig that one up and post some pics.

    Great episode as always, thanks guys!

  2. Interesting fact that the Gen 1 Transformers Jet fire is identical to the Focker. I wonder if it came from the same manufacturer even though they were sold by Hasbro in the USA.

    • I think they were made by Hasbro exclusively. But I may be wrong. 🙂

  3. Gotta be the Sinanju! Just a crazy looking mech. Along with countless others I would love to see Bandai release a PG version.
    Geara Doga is so close…

  4. Another great show guys. Nice to see the VF-1A getting the love. Always loved the Robotech series from back in the day.

    Hey, Scott, we’re not old dudes (Doctor Who and I are sharing the same birthday), we’re experienced. 🙂

  5. Woo hoo! I just got my first HLJ package in the post! 😀
    Booo! It came with customs.. 🙁
    It’s strange, I’ve seen where this box came from in your videos on the other side of the world, and now it’s here with me in the UK, can’t wait to start these! Thanks HLJ!

    • Having opened the box of my RG RX78-2, I noticed that the runner at the bottom had a part snapped from it. The part is fine, and it was in one piece, but I’m slightly concerned about any future orders, I’ve been fortunate this time. :\

  6. Awesome episode guys, loved seeing that awesome Macross kit. You’ve made me want to buy one!
    But, no matter how awesome that Valkyrie was, Gunpla have been on my mind recently. There’s one topic in particular that I’ve been pondering.

    What do you guys think the next RG kit will be after the two GPO1 releases?
    I myself am hoping for the 00 Raiser to get the RG treatment, but what about you two? :3

  7. Scott – are you experiencing any of the same problems with the battroid mode that Rrobbert was having in his photo review?

  8. The original Valkyrie toys are 1/55th

  9. The Destiny gundam becuase it is just badass…and it has a butt-load-a crap of weapons!
