  1. Enjoy your holiday guys!

  2. My idea of what will probably come in the 3.0 array will probably end up being a small series of things. That will probably be the Zaku II 3.0, the RX-178 Gundam Mk. II 3.0 and then the Zeta 3.0. After that time will only tell. However I do have an interesting question. We know that High Grades are already coming influenced by Gundam Build Fighters; will that series touch upon the Master Grades or Perfect Grades at all or even open up more MSBV(Mobile Suit Build Variants)like the Gundam X MaO or the Build Strike Gundam? If so do you think that this could also mean that, pending series length, Bandai may hold a kit-bashing competition where the winner’s bashed kit will gain an official MSBV and perhaps a cameo shot on the show? I don’t think Bandai will let participants from outside of Japan take part but am still interested in seeing what may come of such a foray into the ether if you will. Thoughts?

  3. I love gunpla TV but you guys rarely talk about something else than gundam anymore, Ryan was the one who had the 5 minutes of something else and now he is also bulding gundams… I have been waiting for the macross, evangelion or anithing else promissed episodes, don´t tell me that the VF-1A episode was the macross episode because you only talk about that one kit, what about the rest of the bandai, hasegawa or Wave Kits? anyway this is boring for those of us who don’t build gundams, please do something else!

    • When we are back I’m going to start on the Ma.K, so we’ll start introducing new lines again.

    • Not to point out the obvious, but it is Gunpla TV.
      Although I have to admit the little forays into various other series do get me interested. Looking forward to the new stuff Ryan.

  4. Hey syd and ryan I was thinking it would be cool if there will be an rx-78-2 3.0 the origin version for when the new anime version of the origin comes out next year what do you guys think?

  5. Hey guys, I would love a more in depth look into paints and what Bandai recommends for their kits. The different effects paints have on various plastics (ABS, PS etc..). As someone who can’t just leave his gunpla as OOB, I’m having all kinds of trouble with painting inner frames (paint wear from moving parts, that sort of thing). Anything that would assist with all the trial and error kind of learning I’m going through would be great! I’m sure there are a lot of others who are new to the hobby that are experiencing the same kind of frustrations.
    (However BIG thanks to all who have assisted me so far through HLTV!)

  6. Well, first time here. I do watch your videos since number 4 or 5 (can`t remember) but I too feel that you could show something different. I would also like to know if you have plans on reviewing the Detonator Orgun, from sentinel or other Armored Core kits.

  7. You forgot to mention one of my favorites the one year war version, I love the panel line in that model

  8. How come I’m not getting those cool inserts in my 3.0 box??

  9. Hey Guys, can you do a tutorial on reverse wash? And, show us what types of paints that I can use to do that? Thanks.

  10. Really like Syds’ Real Colour Gundam, I would go for Char’s Gundam theme. :3

  11. Rx78-2 Syd 78! Not 72.

  12. Can you post the decal guide for the stickers? That’s a perfect blue-print for a 3D model.
    Even when I get the kit my self, I have no scanner and would love to craft this in 3D!

    Great photos also!

    By the way I’m curious when I’ll get to see another Toy Tengoku episode?

  13. I’m a very big fan of the show, I also like to build models, I would like to know what color paints did you use on the 3.0 that you painted,Syd, especially the frame parts in the elbows.

  14. hi guys .

    im planning on getting this kit but a friend of mine has said that the real grade should be considered as a mini proto type as a lot of the improvements that been used in 3.0

    thanks guys
