It looks like Bandai has a hit on their hands with the Gundam Build Fighters anime and so we thought we would talk about that line of HG kits in this week’s episode of Gunpla TV. However, everyone is buying them up as fast as Bandai can make them, so we don’t have any we can show you. Instead, we decided we would look at the Booster packs that are sold separately and swappable among HG kits.

1-60 Macross Plus Transformable YF-19 with Fast Pack-2

Kits featured in this video:

1/144 HGCE Strike Rouge
1/60 Macross Plus Transformable YF-19 with Fast Pack
1/144 HGBC Dark Matter Booster
1/144 HGBC Build Custom: Amazing Booster
1/144 HGBC 003 Build Booster Mk-II

Gunpla TV


  1. All of this attention going to the RG Exia and I’m just sitting here waiting for the HGUC FA Unicorn dm…

  2. nice episode guys.

  3. Hey guys! Great episode as always. Do you know when Bandai will be releasing a new Perfect Grade? and in that case which one will it be?

  4. Another great show as always, keep up the good work.

  5. Dat 7-Eleven edition looks sweet. Great video like always.

  6. Hey guys great show always love watching hobbylink tv, Love the macross VF 1A and the RX-78-2 7/11 version hope to win those prizes 🙂

  7. cant wait for my exia and gundam x to be shipped out >x<

  8. I need that Limited edition RX-78 ver 7-11 :3
    Idont collect macross models, but if i win, i will take good care of it 🙂

  9. YF-19 *_*

    hope you guys continue this show for a long time 🙂

  10. its always a shame that you have to lose some part of your collections for the benefit of space 🙁

  11. woah woah woah woah woah!!!!!!!! hang on, theres a seven eleven gundam??!!?!?!?!? ~MINDBLOWN~ I wants hahahaha. Anyhow keep up the great work guys lovin it!

  12. not a fan of build fighter thats why not so excited i though i will see the rg exia this week so sad hehehehe but anyways good show
    more power to you guys
    hope i win that price this time hehehehe

  13. No one likes Miss Sazabi, no one don’t want to buy her… So I decided to buy it for myself. Now waiting for arrival my shipping with it and another 3 kits :3

    • Yeah, I noticed that the Miss Sazabi does not run out of stock…

      • Which is a shame, considering it’s probably the best-looking design from Build Fighters thus far. It’s easily a better reworking of its source kit (Sazabi) than the other kits were of theirs (Strike, Mk II, Zaku, etc.)

        • Wut. It’s just a Sazabi with long, anorexic legs that don’t match the rest of the body at all.

          • I agree, I really like the design and feel it’s under appreciated. I don’t get all the “Leg Hate” either, she has the same legs as Sazabi without shin armor; it fits the more overall look of the suit.

          • I had the same initial impression. After taking a look at the regular Sazabi design for comparison, though (to get an idea of how much changed), I think a big reason for my consternation might have to do with the smaller skirt armor. The side skirts on the Sazabi are humongous, as are the lower legs, but it looks like the thighs themselves are the same on both kits. Overall, I quite like what they did with the design; it’s a nice riff on its source material, which is more than can be said of the other Build Fighters designs. It looks really out of place in the BF universe, though. It’s too… elegant compared to the other, clearly simpler and more childish designs.

            …not digging that shield, though. But they can’t hit everything out of the park, I suppose.

        • Probably, majority of fans are thinking otherwise…

        • Yeah, it’s quite creative, I agree! Char would probably not be too happy about it though… XD

  14. Syd how many gundam do you have in total and which gundam serise do you like the most.

  15. Still waiting to see the insides of the Neo Zeong and awaiting on the whooping price that comes along with it 😀

    • It probably won’t have any sort of inner frame, if that’s what you’re looking for. Remember, it’s an HGUC kit, not MG or PG. The best way to get an idea of what you’ll get is by taking a look at the HGUC Dendrobium. That kit has a lot of parts and is bigger than most PG kits, but it doesn’t come with any sort of inner frame. If it did, its already high price would be doubled or tripled.

  16. I’d bought a build booster mk-iii, was hoping to use its rifle parts for a Byarlant Custom mod. I should’ve bought a dark matter booster as well

  17. BTW That’s a Zudah on the amazing booster box

  18. Dat neo zeong is like half the size of that guy on its left. Hope to win that 7-11 rx-78 2 😀

  19. LOL 7/11 gundam, it actually looks pretty good

  20. Those who say they like Gunpla, but didn’t try watching or don’t like Gundam Build Fighters are missing a lot of fun. Lot’s of references to previous gundam series, gundam appearances and cameos. And so far one of the most enjoyable and ‘happy’ endings for a gundam series.

    I’m surprised Syd you haven’t watched it yet!

  21. Can’t wait for the RG Exia. Especially for those plated parts!

  22. I want an HGBF Abigorbine and I don’t really know why :/

  23. Bun said on April 7, 2014

    Just started experimenting with modding and stuff. I just cant express how useful the tips you guys gave are! Keep up the awesome job! :3

    P.S Yea if i could win that RX-78 2 would be a bonus xD

  24. Thx for the vod….Hope to win!!

  25. Wow, I can’t believe shizuoka hobby show is coming. I wonder what will be announced.

  26. Great episode guys! Good luck on the move Syd.

  27. That is a huge HG kit.

  28. My brother would envy me if I get that Variable Fighter (^_^”)

  29. That Zeong is never gonna fit in my gunpla cabinet…. how in heavens name am i to store and display it when im done.

  30. It always seems easy to write off the “booster kits” but for any kitbash getting some from one of these boosters can help set it apart (with some paint of course). and I’m keen to see the HG Turn A next week.

  31. This Macross look amazing, I can’t wait to see transformation.

  32. That YF-19 was a nice surprise. It’s always nice to see Macross pop up on the show. Would I be correct in assuming that’s a rebranding of the Yamato YF-19, or is it a new tooling?

    Speaking of Macross, have you done and/or can you do some comparisons between Bandai Macross kits and other companies? I’m thinking specifically of the Hasegawa non-transforming kits. Maybe take a look at and compare the Bandai rendition of the VF-1 to the Hasegawa version.

    Keep up the great work, Syd and Ryan.

    • It’s a new tooling. Well, more or less.
      Yamato did the 1:60 YF-19 back in 2006, I think… And they followed it up with the Macross 7 VF-19’s more recently – a few years ago I think. Apart from the stylistic differences, the Yamato VF-19’s were redesigned to improve the battroid mode – make the legs less lanky, make the torso come together more nicely, etc. The Arcadia YF-19 incorporates those design changes.
      So one place you can see the difference is in the back of the legs. YF-19’s transformation is a bit “complicated” because the arms wind up overlapping where the legs should be. The new YF-19 addresses that in a couple ways – among other things, the legs extend in fighter mode and retract in battroid mode – so they can get the proper “stocky” look in battroid and look a little more “sleek” in fighter mode – and some of the space needed for the arms in fighter mode comes from the gap that opens when you extend the legs.
      Unfortunately HLJ doesn’t have good pictures of the Yamato YF-19 online, so if you want to know more about what’s changed, I’d take a look around on Macrossworld. There are guys there who know everything about Yamato/Arcadia figures and Macross in general.

    • Also you can’t really do a proper comparison of the Hasegawa “non-transformable” kit with the Bandai “transformable” simply because the engineering is worlds apart. Hasegawa kit is a standard “glue em up and paint them, with a ton of waterslide decals” good old aircraft kit made in one color while Bandai counterpart is more “toylike” with snap-fit parts and color separation, stickers etc etc. I’d say Hasegawa, being an oldschool aircraft manufacturer will offer a LOT more detail because they can, due to non moving parts. Panel lines all over the place etc but no major gimmicks while Bandai will have the transformation which is a huge bonus to the people that like that, not to mention opening hatches and add-on parts all over the place. And one more thing, I’m pretty much sure you can build a Bandai Macross kit right out of the box and have it look pretty good without any big fiddling but you can’t do the same with a Hasegawa kit which require some skill to start with, sanding, filling, painting, decaling etc etc.

      • @tetsujin – Will check them out. Thanks.

        @Daniel – It wouldn’t be an apples to apples comparison, you’re right, but that doesn’t mean they can’t or shouldn’t compare. Since Hasegawa offers the VF-1 in both fighter and battroid modes, they could compare both of them to the Bandai version, seeing what the transformation adds and takes away to the models. (While we’re at it, I think Wave makes some battroid/fighter VF-1s as well. Throw them into the mix.) It would be a good opportunity to teach customers who might potentially be stuck deciding between two renditions of the same design what to look for. It might also provide beginning hobbyists who’ve only stuck to gunpla and Bandai engineering an idea of what else is out there.

  33. Great episode guys, looking forward to the new releases. I noticed no new MG Build Fighter kits also though. Do you think we’ll see more?

    P.S. That Macross needs some lovin’ lol

  34. hey guys, i have a question. whats the new gundam series or is there? keep up the good work.

  35. It’s nice to see other things too, like Varlkyries ! Thank you for all these videos !

  36. My wife just gave me a MG 1/100 Strike Rouge Ootori version for my birthday and I cannot wait to put it together and customize it and what not. While I wait for it to come in the mail I thought I’d go on youtube and watch Gundam Seed to see what all the fuzz is about these gundams beside looking awesome and man, what a treat it is watching this cartoon. So I’m late in the game but better late than never! Anyway, great show and that YF-19 looks amazing!

  37. Hi Syd & Ryan, good to see another episode of yours. I can’t wait to see the size and price of Neo Zeong. I hope you can show me on your show when the kit come out. I got a question to ask can a winner win 2 times of this giveaway? And let’s see if I can win this giveaway this time. Limited edition.

  38. Bandai must have a lot of faith in the Unicorn series to believe that a 1/144 Neo Zeong would be worth producing. Forget about the price and sheer size, how many would have the space needed just to display it???

  39. I’ll just take a cardboard cut out of Neo Zeong. You know what’ll happen if I even buy a Dendrobium? I’ll starve. I’ll starve but I’ll have a plastic space robot to keep my corpse warm.

    So, you wrap those models in a printout of all the comments here during shipping?

    • Syd and Ryan could probably throw in the printouts that they use for the show, if it doesn’t really make a difference in shipping costs?

  40. Not A big fan of GB parts but am looking forward to some of the new variation kits such as HG Crossbone Kai (confirmed) and HG Wing Gundam Fenice Rinascita (unconfirmed)

  41. Looking forward to Ryan doing the transformation demo on the YF19! Worth every yen I shelled out for it

  42. i love the review~i learn a lot(*^o^*)
    hope to see exia dark matter next episode XD
    when will the wing gundum fenice renacisca come out??

  43. im just here for the comp…

  44. That valkarie! Don’t have the cash to get my own so im hoping to win this time around!

  45. I love special edition Gunpla, I hope I win this week.

  46. Why not try the Legends BB series?
    it’s quite interesting.

  47. Wow..Macross Plus YF-19 is awesome even..p.s i like to try to win free

  48. I wonder if they’ll divide the length of Neo Zeong’s propellant tanks into separate pieces.

  49. I could definitely use that Valkyrie for spare parts, I’m sure mine will prove difficult to assemble without breakages.

  50. Hey guys, great episode this week. But I have a question for you the both of you.

    Of all the mobile suits that I have seen throughout Gundam, I found the Reborns Gundam to be my top favorite, and since its appearance, hope to see it become an MG kit. So the question is, is there a chance of that happening, or of any of the other Gundams from 00 to come out as an MG? I would also like to know which particular Mobile Suit the both of you wish to be made in to kits.

  51. oh, i’m a gunpla fan,but also macrosspla(XD?) are interesting! 😀

  52. NYOOM~

  53. I was really sad when you decided not to build the Miss Sazabi. But this was a inspiring episode and made me wanna get some boosters. And I feel so sad about build fighters ending so soon, it felt awkward not watching a new episode on a monday (Its what made a new start of a week easier for me)

  54. Great ep. But I was just wondering where’s the v fin on the strike freedom. PS I hope I can win those amazing kits

  55. Good Show Guys 🙂

  56. Are those backpacks compatible with First Grade kits?

  57. Hey guys, what do you guys think which RG will be coming up right after the Exia (April) and Zogok (June). I hope is a RG Unicorn Gundam… Hope to win the VF-1

  58. Hello

  59. Can’t wait to see the RG EXIA articulation. Always been a fan of bandai’s engineering into kits.

  60. Love those Macross figuress

  61. Hi Guys, Loved the show. Are you going to do some filming at the up coming Model Show?

  62. The upcoming cross bone gundam maoh has the dumbest super robot gimmick I’ve seen in a while.. I love it.

  63. love those back packs

  64. Hey HLJ,

    Being that Arcadia has some of the molds from Yamato, do you think we’ll ever get a re-issue of that 1/3000 scale SDF-1 from them?
    I missed my chance to own one a few years back and the second hand market’s markup is insane.

    Either way, I love seeing the show each week, keep up the good work!

  65. Already have my yf19,the transformation at the lag are very difficult, but so fun to transform. Is a caste toy but just getting those weight already make you feel satisfied.

  66. OOooo. that 7-11 Rx-78-2 looks very nice 🙂

  67. man, that macross looks mighty fine, maybe time to watch some macross episodes.
    what do you guys thought about gundam build fighters (i just finished it), battling people with gunpla is like a dream of epicness *drool* (get on it already bandai xD)

  68. sweat episode :). Hey Syd, how’s your father in law doing?

  69. Come on… Extract my number!
    Thank you guys! 😀

  70. I tried the original build booster (from the build strike full package) and from what I saw I THOUGHT the twin peg (as what the manual shows for the hg wing) would work with anything with a twin peg backpack, as it turns out, my hg blue destiny’s holes are far too large and apart (thus the waist connector which leaves a nasty split) and my hg nemo after a few mini test may need to use the crotch connector intended for the unicorn (which looks horrible), doesn’t give hope for my intended use for the twin peg connector being used with the gm custom…why do I like this peg so much?

    Looks better and is a tad more stable to my eyes, don’t like waist splits or crotch attachments :c

    And I got the miss sazabi kit here, have yet to start building but I like the design (despite the legs being so hollow so I worry about stability when finally built) and with a new coat of paint I think just about anyone may like it…although sadly my intended kit bash idea isn’t gonna work out of the box (is it wrong for a guy to take such a big mean machine and have a big bow from the bearguy on its back?)

  71. Good episode, guys. Now that Gundam Build Fighters has ended, it would be a good time to marathon it. I enjoyed the series a lot; loved all the old Gundams, references and nostalgia peppered in it.

    It will cause a wave of new Gunpla fans, that’s for sure. On another note, that Valkyrie and 7/11 model need a good home on my shelf.

  72. The color scheme on the RX-78-2 is so good. Btw. Im waiting for the kits from upcoming Reconguista in G. The trailers are amazing so far. So much hype.

  73. What do y’all think of a 1/144 Shamblo?? Hope I win the kits though. I wanna try kits from other series.

  74. Really like the ending of Gundam Build Fighter. Hope they create arcade game like that. Also really hope to win the prizes.

    • Do you guys think that they’re going to make season 2? It does seem like it’s an effective marketing tool, aside from being a successful anime by itself…

      • Next season sound good. Maybe they already plan it 🙂
        More Gundam, More Power. (Medabot’s slogan hahaha)

  75. Every time i dont win i give it KHAAAAAAAAAN. Oh and will you be giving away the booster backpacks as well?

  76. About the new Gundam series that’s coming out, the person who’s doing the animation is the same guy who did the animation for the mecha series ‘Eureka Seven’. And if you’re curious, Bandai made kits of mechs from that show.

    I would send you a cookie, but shipping baked goods from the east side of Canada to Japan is kind of expensive.

  77. After Char’s suit, I hope 00 Raiser or Impulse get RG treatment as well.

  78. Hey guys, nice episode!
    Looking forward to that transformation Ryan~
    And Syd, how much do you know about ‘Gundam Origin’, and about the series they announced for next year?

  79. I’m actually pretty excited at the prospect of a new macross anime actually. I should go back and watch from where I left off in frontier though I heard the movie was better in many respects.

    (I’m in it to win it)

  80. So I think the booster pack should get a MG treatment, its a good concept. Anyway when can we see another kitbash?? Kinda miss the old tutorial style gunpla tv.

  81. Love the show guys!

  82. Great show as usual guys. Just a quick question, will you guys be showcasing the Neo Zeong when it comes out? 😛

  83. While the Neo Zeong is huge…Those huge booster tanks are quite silly and the kit is only 80cm because of those. Myself I will not get the kit but if by some chance I do by other means…(birthday, contest prize, etc) I will not be using those tanks as the actual body of the kit looks cool, just not $270 cool.

    I wish this was the april fools joke and not the HGUC 1/144 Shamblo >.<

    Another great show as always guys! 😀

  84. Awesome show! I look forward to the RG exia review!

  85. Sam said on April 7, 2014

    oooo, 7-Eleven RX-78!

    I don’t know if I could send you baked goods from America, but if I’m ever in Japan again, I’d love to send some your way! 😀

  86. I got the K-9 back pack and it’s more complicated than the main RM. I hope I win the kit. love macross ;P

  87. Tim said on April 7, 2014

    The 7-11 Gundam is nice and all, but how can I say no to the offer of a Valkyrie covered in Scott’s sweat? 😉

    Also: drag him or Brian out for a Boss Builds soon.

  88. Will there hopefully be a MG Gundam Exia Dark Matter?

  89. Great episode, just wondering but is it possible to build something from build fighters without buying the kit for it? since in the show they custom made theirs so i was wondering if you could make them in real life!

  90. Gundam Grandpa and Macross!? YAY!

  91. hi. love the show, guys. is it possible to slap on amazing booster to gundam or gm?

  92. Ive never had a macross would love to give it a try maybe it will have a new fan. Thanks for the show guys and keep up the good work.

  93. 7-11 it’s a store and more ! Ding Dong ! Hey Syd, could you sum up all those 7-11 kits till date ?

  94. Great episode guys. love that vf-19. wish to own one myself in the near future

  95. Man…I would love that YF-19. It is just soooo expensive >.< I would need to decide whether I would want get it or upgrade my computers graphics card lol

  96. waiting for the rg exia cannot wait for it

  97. Hey guys, is it hard to find 7-11 Gundam Kits over in Japan. When overseas, these things cost an arm and leg, so would it be relatively easy if those overseas happen to go on a vacation to Japan, pop into a 7-11 and find one? Thanks.

  98. Had a wild thought, is it ever possible o kitbash macross and gundam? LOL! Has ever one tried?

  99. hi everybody!

  100. Good luck on the move Syd.

  101. question for Syd and Ryan: do you have kids? How do build around them? A have a toddler lovely girl that takes all/parts of my kit/kits when i am building, not to mention that i only paint at night so she won’t be exposed to any paint fumes… how do you guys build with kids around?

  102. Ray said on April 8, 2014

    Hi Syd and Ryan…
    Will Bandai release the MG version of every build fighters mobile suit???
    Including Wing Gundam Fenice and also its upgrade version Wing Gundam Fenice Rinaschita???
    And that would be like so AWESOME…
    PS:I would love having that Macross VF-1A/S for my collection…

  103. I feel like the swappable back packs thing is too gimmicky for me, but i could imagine taking different parts of different backpacks and kitbashing something

  104. hay guys just want to say keep up the good work,
    and hope i win the kits. but whatever you guys are awesome

  105. I have an unhealthy addiction to 7-11 things.

    Also I can’t wait to see the Turn A review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  106. Hey S-fresh and Ry-dawg. Love the show, guys. I am amazed by this upcoming Neo Zeong gundam. Can’t wait to see you guys take a crack at it! Keep up the good work, mates!

  107. Hey guys, just joined HL.tv and wow is all i can say! I sent a question in through youtube’s message center but i’m going to repost it here for you: “Hi guys, love watching the episodes you guys put up. I’m curious about the SEED MG line, when the remastered SEED was released we got 5 new MGs but when Destiny was released we only got the Strike Rouge Ootori. Do you think they will be doing any more MGs from Destiny and if so any thoughts??


    I know i said “hi guys” twice but since i just copied and pasted this i think i can get away with it lol, please keep the vids comin!

  108. Love the show guys and love seeing other kits besides the Gundam’s, my question is are we going to be getting a bigger variety on those i.e. Metal Gears? Enjoy the cookies!

  109. hi guys,

    what do you think about other 3rd party kits?
    some of them are really cool to review like elyn hobby 1/100 Kshatriya.

  110. I miss GBF soo much already!! great episode guys!!!

  111. So question, do you think the VF-19 is worth all that money? I always like looking at macross figures and models, but they are always so expensive, so I am on the fence about most of them.

    Also hope to win those kits, the Valkyrie looks amazing, and having a limited edition Gundam like that would be sweet!

  112. I love Macross, as much as i love Gundam. Now for my question, Do you think Macross models are to complex for model builders how are not use to that tier of modeling. I would love those models

  113. I’ve never even heard of seven eleven gundam before, looks awesome though.

  114. Do you have any news about new rg zogok ?? Is it real ?

    And hope I get the free gundam!!!!!

  115. Great review as always guys Thanks a lot syd and ryan and about the Neo Zeong i think it’s the tallest kit ever released.

    I hope i win something >.<

  116. Do you guys know if the Neo Zeong come with a Sinanju? And great episode as always every time you have Makross I fell like I should start watching it.

  117. great job guys…..
    love to have the macross :0


  119. whats up guys….great show………..<<<

  120. Hello, Great Show! Hope I win the drawings

  121. give me macross.

  122. hello greetings from Argentina hope to see that macross kit in my collection

  123. nice show as always Syd and Ryan..would you guys be interested in featuring some of the Armored Core kits?(specially the White Glint) thanks..

  124. Hi Guys, I notice most your episodes discuss gunpla kits. Whats the best kits in terms of sales and people buys the most.. gupla, tanks, fighters etc? Gunpla collector here. Thanks and more power!

  125. Great show as always!!! Been collecting and building gundams for quite some time all thanks to you guys and your awesome website !!!! Keep up with the awesome job !!!

  126. That YF-19 sure is a doozie, lucky Ryan.

  127. hope to win this time.. by the way does the build booster MK-II comes with the RX-78

  128. Hey Syd are you crazy that kit is awesome. I’ll take it.:)

  129. Hey Syd and Ryan,

    Frist off, it’s really awesome to hear a question I left read and answered on the show. Second, My Figure-rise Kamen Rider Kabuto just came in today from HLJ, so i got to thinking, what do you guy’s think of Bandai’s Figure-rise kit line? I haven’t seen you guys do a show about those(if there is I do apologize), so I was wondering if you guys have ever spent time with those kits, and what your opinions about them are.

  130. I miss 7-11. There are none where I currently live.

  131. the dark matter booster is the same color’s as the aile striker pack it would probably look like it belongs there on it.

  132. i wonder how heave that neo zeong will be.

  133. For the price, the individual boosters aren’t bad. They could certainly make for some interesting kit-bashes.

  134. Wouldn’t mind having either of those kits. Kit bash the macross with gundam?! Id give it a shot haha

  135. that 7-11 gundam looks so good! the green is fresh for me, and the wing gundam reborn from BF series has the same greenish, hope they can release a MG for it!

  136. Oh that heavens it’s seven-11 (Gundam)

    Syd do you have the HiNu 7-11 version too?

  137. Hey guys another great episode. But I asked a question last week but you never answered but its okay.

  138. I love the 7-11 gundam

  139. Man, that Neo Zeong was massive and its only HG. Its like dendrobium having RX-78GP03 but Neo Zeong having a sazabi instead.
    But I prefer the BB SD instead http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN989505/Gun

    PS: I love the prizes your giving away pls let have it, pls. pls. 😀

  140. Great episode guys! Can’t wait to see the yf-19 transform next week. It’s so awesome looking.

  141. Missed last weeks episode 🙁 , oh well gotta go watch it now. Keep up the good work.

  142. Can’t wait to see that Neo-Zeong fully built up and painted by some of those master modelers out there!!

  143. the dark matter booster looks Awesome. Nice Vid Guys keep it up.

  144. Awesome 7 11 gundam kinda want to go and buy all the there is.

  145. Man, that neo zeong is too big, probably will be packaged as a master grade. The customized gunpla looks awesome but wheres freedom’s v fin?

  146. I really wish the 711’s here in the states would carry the HG exclusives and I really hope I get lucky and win ^^

  147. Are there any other version of that 7/11 gunpla.. coz i think i saw a 7/11 strike freedom somewhere..?? Anyways.. good show, its the only thing thats keeps me excited at mondays. Since build fighters left me.. valkyrie..(drools)

  148. Great video, always enjoy watching these. Always a great pickup on a Monday

  149. Ore wa 7-11 Gandamu!

  150. great episode guys
    i was hoping to see if the build booster you had could attach to the RG MK-II
    hope to win those kits

  151. I love gundam and macross, I hope I get the kit. I just found out next rg will be z’gok, I would’ve liked to see other 3rd generation gundams from 00.

  152. i’m very excited of the turn A hg release and i can’t wait to get its hg and mg kits ! please stock them fast >.< to sid n ryan great shows as always !

  153. I’d love to see a 3.0 Gouf

  154. Another great video guys. Personally i cant wait for the mg turn X, its about time. btw neo zeong… holy crap!

  155. Wow, that Neo Zeong is enormous!
    Great video! Can’t wait to see what other MG Build Fighters kits they announce in the future (MG Exia Dark Matter, please?)

  156. For those of us *not* in Japan, what is the best way to get some of those exclusive gundams? Specifically the Ver 7-11 ones and the Premium Bandai ones (such as the MG Banshee Norn).

  157. Hey Ryan the model of the Valkire is YF-19 not VF-19, the VF are production models, while the YF are prototypes.

  158. Mr.RNG, Syd, and Ryan may HGBF live on and I hope to buy another shelf for my wall.

  159. Hey guys, interesting episode, as always.

    I have to say, though, your not so subtle disdain for the Gundam Build Fighters is, IMO, a little unfortunate. Being a long time Gundam fan, it had never occurred to me to buy models and build them. I knew they existed, but living in a small town in Canada I hadn’t really had any exposure to them

    Gundam Build Fighters opened up the world of Gunpla to me and I’m glad it did. With each Gundam I build I learn something different. 🙂

    Ps. I’ve found many of your videos very helpful. Thanks!

    • I don’t think it’s so much disdain as it is lack of interest. Build Fighters, AGE, and Gunpla Builders are all marketed at children, attempting to get them hooked on gunpla at a young age. The mecha designs reflect this; whereas something like Unicorn has rather detailed, complex-looking designs, AGE/BF/GB all use rather simple geometry and lots of flat panels in their suits. Thus, they’re just not as interesting visually.

      Plus, most of the them just look really, really bad compared to their originals. Build Strike, Wing Fenice, Zaku Amazing, Build Mk. II, Exia Dark Matter… they all look terrible. It doesn’t help that they all hail from vastly different worlds of design, too. So not only do they look bad individually, they can’t come together to form a cohesive collection, either.

      But bah, I’m ranting. Anyway, there are some possibilities on why Syd might not be so invested in Build Fighters.

      • Bah, I say! Build Fighters was awesome. Though given that Syd says he doesn’t like Gundam anime so much, I can see why it wouldn’t appeal to him. One of the things I really enjoyed about the show was its abundant Gundam fanservice – character cameos, mecha cameos, references dropped all over the place… It took the whole “shameless product promotion” thing and turned it to its advantage.

        • I can certainly appreciate that perspective. I suppose it does wear its heart on its sleeve rather than trying to dupe its audience with a hokey “war is hell” morality tale.

          Also, fancy seeing you here. Hope the builds/blog are going well for you. 😉

      • What you said definitely has merit.

        I look at the anime from a different angle, though. It is what it is, shameless promotion of their merchandise, but, it’s never heavy.

        The show is light, fluffy and while it possess no real plot depth, the characters are likeable. I haven’t watched AGE or Gunpla Builders but I’ve watched pretty much all the other Gundam series’ and it’s nice to enjoy Gundam in a less serious, less grim setting.

        I also enjoyed the designs of the Gundams on the show. I guess it’s a matter of preference, but for example, I really enjoyed Wing Gundam Fenice’ a-symmetrical design! So much so, in fact, that I purchased 3! One for a stock display, one to customize and one for parts.

        I’m only 23 so I won’t pretend to have seen all of the grittiness adulthood has to offer but I spend so much time absorbed in the seriousness of life, that sometimes fluff anime is a great escape. It’s the same reason I eat pancakes every Sunday and watch the cartoons I loved as a kid. Gargoyles, Medabots, Scooby Doo etc. 🙂

        • To be fair, when Gundam tries to do heavy, grim, and serious, it usually fails spectacularly. 😉

          Asymmetry can be used to really great effect. There are bits of the Wing Fenice that I like – the wings bring to mind a Spanish matador, which might be a bit of a jump in logic, but there you are. And lances are always a plus. But it just doesn’t work for me as much as the Wing does (which itself isn’t exactly in my Top Ten of Gundam designs). Have fun with your builds, though. Hope to see them in the future.

  160. Hey guys do you think that bandai will ever make a MG Leo or any of its variants?

  161. Nice show again as always. Was wondering when you would get to a Macross kit give away. I started watching Robotech (Macross) back as a Kid and it is the series that got me hooked on Anime. Just started my first Model kit (HG Age 1) last week and it is surprisingly time consuming yet enjoyable. Also a good thing I wear glasses as I get a lot of ricochets hitting me when trimming the gates. Again keep up the good work.

  162. Just saw the RG exia photos…Everything is awesomeeeee!!!


  164. The backpacks fit nicer than I thought they would. Now I have to buy some!

  165. 7-Eleven edition looks so cool, wanna get It.

  166. Great show guys keep it up lovin the arcadia can’t wait to see it next week @ryan. Never had a robotech kit hope i win it and the RX78 711 does it have the sign @syd? Hope the move goes quick. Cant wait to c the duck complete. Later peace high fives all around

  167. Great show as always. Thank you for showing off the HGBF booster build kits in action. It’s one thing reading about how they can be swapped onto other kits and actually seeing it done. I’m really hoping for more MG’s of the Build Fighters and Boosters! Keep up the good work and the informative shows!

  168. Great episode guys! That Macross YF-19 is so cool looking! I hope I win those kits!

  169. Great episode! Was looking at those add on packs for a while and never knew that you could actually put them on a whole array of kits will be picking up one or two in the near future

  170. This episode was cool I liked the part with that giant neo zeon and if that thing a HG imagine how big it would really be or in a MG or a PG oh and also what gundam anime did that come from.

  171. 3 mins to comment for possible free stuff, why not.

  172. Hey guys are you gonna build any zoids anytime soon? And hopefully I win!

  173. Would really love to get both of those kits. Amazing show as always. Looking forward to the next. Can’t wait for the RG Exia

  174. looks cool, count me in…


    Chicken butt!

  176. im thinking that zeong is gonna arrive in a giant crate lol . also possibly some leds?

  177. Great episode as usual. Really looking forward to the RG Exia. Hope to win one of these!

  178. I cant wait for my mg Sazabi,Hi V. and aile strike rm to get here

  179. OMG! Growing up in NYC in the 80’s I would watch the late night japanese tv channel and watch anime not understanding what was going on. Then one sunday I woke up early, turn the TV on and there was Robotech, An anime in english! WOW. Years later I found out that the first season was actually Macross and continued to follow the macross saga and line. I would love to win that kit.BTW great show with the HG booster packs. Cool to see them in action.

  180. Great show guys, looking at all the boosters gives me great ideas for custom color I was thinking exia dark matter different color and adding light wing like the destiny can’t wait to get started and looking forward to next week.

  181. The 7-11 Gundam looks great, oddly enough. Product placement for the win? He’d look nice next to my MG RX-78-2. 3rd comment’s the charm maybe. Great video as always.

  182. I think that hobby link Japans Gunpla TV is by far one of the better shows out there for reviews and tips as well. Keep up the good work Syd and Ryan.

  183. When the YF-30 Kronos will be up for preorder, will you have another fiasco like you had when the YF-29 Ozma was for preorder by changing the name so no one could properly find it until it was too late??

  184. Macross is awesome, and I hope that I win this week!

  185. I’m hoping for some more MG kits, a Zaku Amazing or a Kampfer Amazing MG would be amazing. Then again those are my personal favorites

  186. Hey guys, great episode. Are you looking forward to the final episode of Unicorn due in the next couple of months?

    And a Scott sweat imbued Valkyrie, with a 7/11 RX-78, can’t get much better than that.

  187. nice review as always, really wanting to see the finished model that you customized Syd, can’t wait for more gundams to be customized by you and the new gundam, what are your thoughts on that guys?

  188. 7-11 rx-78-2 cool and nice ep on hg booster backpacks hope i will the gunpla

  189. Hey I love your guys’ show. I’m planning to by rg exia and do a custom with called red lightning exia. could I email you picks when i’m done to see how I did?

  190. woo I want dat, 7, eleven gundam!

    but seriously guys if I win I want autographs PLEASE, you guys are great, and to receive one from your own collection syd would be really cool to have,

    also with all this crazy hype for the neo zeong and the popularity of gunpla right now do you think they might go back and make HG nui ziels and or big zams

  191. I want to win that valkyrie so much! Eagerly waiting for the release of the Turn X.

  192. so…I kind of really want that 7-11 kit…not gonna lie…=)

  193. Nice Episode both 7-11 gundam and macross looks amazing

  194. Loving the gundam build fighters kits. I watched the anime and I gotta it’s very good and it, as well as you guys, it’s the reason I started getting into gunpla. Hope I win that kit, 7 11 never makes those types of promotions here in the states.

  195. Love the interchangable Backpacks with the HG Series. I was sceptical at first with if being swapable since all HG kits are different but you sure showed me. Also, i was shocked to see a red strike freedom. Thank you for showing me that. Love the work you do guys. Thanks

  196. A pat on the back on you guys for keeping this hobby strong. But I think gundam hobby has reached a plateau. They should start building more MG kits much like the RX78-2 3.0 version. Then that would be exciting.

  197. Hi guys as aways great show. i would like some new info about the new gundam anime series. Hope you guys can tell us what it is. Also can you also give us more info on the shizuoka Hobby Show as i am plannin to go there. Again thanks for the great shows.

  198. I really think it is cool that Bandai is promoting kit-bashing.

  199. I wish bandai release Abigorbine too.

  200. Great to see those customized backpack. Just wonder if Bandai will release these separate backpack in the MG line.

  201. Could you do a review on the mg wing gundam custom?

  202. Hi Syd & Ryan, i would like to know which one is your favorite gundam faction?, mine is of course Zeon!

  203. Do you guys think if there will be a season of build fighters?

    And that 7-11 Gundam looks sweet!

  204. love u guys, and do u think rg 00 raiser will be the next rg kit??

  205. keep up the good work, love that 7-11 gundam

  206. That YF-19 looks incredible, hope they make a new YF-21 as well.

  207. I so want that 7-11 RX78 gundam!

  208. Hey Ryan & Syd,
    Keep up the great work, can’t wait to see that finished kit-bash of your soon!
    How often does HLJ restock on HG kits?

  209. Joe said on April 8, 2014

    Great work on yet another episode! Looking forward to the coverage of the Hobby Show from you guys.

  210. Pretty interesting boosters. Would be fun to use in random projects.

  211. Man I want that dark matter booster I would like to add that to an EZ 8. 8th MS team FTW!

  212. Talking about modding… would you create your own unique modded Bearguy? If so, what would it be like?

  213. Hey guys,
    That YF-19 fastpack was cool. I would love to get the give away kits as they’d make great additions to my meager collection.

  214. I love the Macross stuff, you guys should feature more of them!

  215. If i win, I will make a macross and gundam custom kitbash!
    I shall bring the two awesome franchises together!

  216. hey syd and ryan I was wondering if Bandai was planning on making a mg blast impulse since there is a force and sword impules. keep up the good work!

  217. Hey Syd and Ryan hope my questions gets answered! Anyway I want to buy the mg Banshee norn coming out June or July , but it looks like it will only be a gentei kit, which means very expensive to get for me living in Canada. what do u think the chances of it being available on hlj. thank you for everything guys watched every episode and wanted to let you know u guys are the reason I started gunpla!

  218. The YF-19 looks stunning, but I’m scared to look at the price.

  219. hey guys great episode. i never really watched macross but that YF-19 looks awesome!

  220. 7-11 Gundam is awesome! Need a custom kwik-e-mart Gundam

  221. i got into gunpla just recently and i have 4 master grades in my collection. i want to get more master grade gundam but, i’m low in cash. i’ve thought of collecting highgrades but i feel like i will not like them because they are less detailed and are smaller in size. should i just stick with mastergrade and just save up money or switch over to highgrades and get more gunpla now?

  222. Great show as always guys.Any thoughts on Gundam The Origin OVA or maybe thoughts on anticipated gunpla releases because of it?

  223. great episode, definitely entices me into getting into macross

  224. hey Sy and Ry,

    are those HLJ shirts your uniforms? 😀

    can you also include an HLJ shirt with those giveaways? LOL

    anyways, fun as always Sy and Ry!

    you might get confuse:
    Sy = Syd
    Ry = Ryan

  225. can’t wait for 1/60 YF-19 macross deep review

  226. ryan, falcon finish yet? im still waiting for the final rusults. thanks for another great episode guys. keep up the good work!

  227. Gotta say that strike freedom u half-build’s quite “sexey” with that dark matter booster XD

  228. Love the recent episodes, guys. Keep up the great work!

  229. not sure if im a fan of the booster packs

  230. HI!!!!!!

    that YF-19 looks amazing!!!
    BTW, I ask this again in case that you see it know… Where do you get those posters? I don’t mind if I get one of those instead a gunpla 🙂

    Thanks for the great show! Greetings from Chile

  231. Sweet I think I m going to buy a booster

  232. Hi Syd and Ryan!

    Thanks for introducing the newest and latest gunpla kits to us! I have been following your videos since last year and i always look forward to each new video. Keep up the good work! I love gunpla!

  233. May said on April 8, 2014

    While I would love to win, I also want to point out that this episode was great.

    Keep on keeping on.

  234. Hey Guys,

    Just finisch my HG Aile Strike an Working now on my new HG Gundam Exia Repair II and watching you Guys as always. Thank you for this great instruction Episode! As a fan of your Builds, i hope i win this Price 🙂

    Greets from Germany

  235. I like the look and direction of the GBF kitbash do you think that they would release adapters for MG kits?

    bring me the 7 11

  236. Can’t wait to see the RG Exia on the show. That Zeong is nuts. The leg cylinders could probably double up as storage canisters …

  237. Oh and that VF-1S needs a home on my shelf!

  238. Not sure how Neo Zeong will fight against a smaller, decked out Full Armor Unicorn but here’s hoping that it will be a blast!

  239. Nice episode guys keep it up

  240. I never realized how great the color scheme works on the 7-11 rx-78. Hope I win it! 😉

  241. really awesome episode hope you do a review on the dark matter exia, wonder if I’ll win?

  242. nice episode guys, macross kits looks interesting, since i never build one yet, im hoping to win that!:)

  243. Hope I can win the Macross >.<

  244. Whoa! More beautiful and larger Zeon kits to come! Seig Zeon!!

  245. Great give away kit!

  246. How about doing some customized perfect grade kits. It’s kinda interesting

  247. Great show, guys!

  248. Hello guys nice to see the new eppisode came out quicker then it used to.. hehe.. ilove those macross but impossible for me becouse its very expensive..:-(

  249. very cool !~ Gouf-zaku F2000 kitbash !!

  250. The 7/11 version is too overpriced on other stores….
    By the way, that MK II booster looks epic!

  251. are those mk2 booster works on RG mk2 gundam?

  252. I wish those booster are RG compatible. cant you experiment for us Syd? :p

    • Pretty sure Build Booster is compatible with RG Strike – instead of having just a round peg to plug into the Strike, the connecting piece can flip around to give you either the tab-style connector of the RG or the peg-style of the HG.

  253. You guys should do a video of your guys’ collections at home!

  254. Great show as always! Can’t wait to see the next one.

  255. Great show on how the Boosters work. I love Build Fighters, but I feel the models can be hit and miss (the Sengoku Astray doesn’t look nearly as good as in the show, and the MG Build Mk. II was just, well…). The Miss Sazabi, though, is something I think I could play around with.

  256. Nifty, Looking forward to see the rg exia!

  257. The 7/11 version is an interesting product tie in, the green looks good!

  258. Everybody put your gp bases down and get out your pokeballs, cuz we’re about the battle some gundams.

  259. As Roy Scheider said in Jaws: “That’s some bad hat Harry.”. The same could be said for an “Amazing” Booster pack. It just doesn’t look right to me.

  260. nice episode, really entertaining, hope to win one of the kits!

  261. Hey guys, great episode! I hope I win the Valkyrie and that awesome 7-11 rx78-2

  262. Hey u guys I’ve been watching u guys for a couple of years. So keep doing what your doing, I would chose the build gundam mk-II or one of the boosters

  263. Would be so cool if Bandai make more Macross kits, YF-19 is one of my favorite.

  264. I WANT THAT 7-11 GUNDAM hahah besides that what r your thoughts of gundam origins?

  265. good show

  266. I hope I win the kit love the show guys always a great job with the kits and showing them off

  267. It’s a shame that the Satellite Cannon isn’t a backpack option as well.

  268. Do you know guys, I actually look forward for the next Gundam series! Now, please give me that Macross kit, 😀

  269. hey thanks for yet another good episode of gumpla television always look over here in the cold north
    and a question Ryan watch the recently gumpla TV ep63 then I saw that the SDF-1 Macross not have the same arms as in the movie and the series as ther on dvd know if you noticed it when you countryside thanks for a great EP

  270. I can’t wait for the Neo Zeong! I wonder if it comes with a Sinanju for the top or if its just a place holder. I think the Dendrobium came with the GP-03 so I bet its possible.

    Great show! 🙂

  271. I have the YF19 in the storage, Cant wait to get it. Looking at the picture the detail is great and assembly gap is less than Yamato, I thought they would us the same mold for the production are they not?
    also with all the attention on gold plate master grade why don’t Bandai release Master Grade Akatsuki in Gold Plate already I would buy it in an instant!
    PS. Thank you for the great show it really help informing the customer about the product 🙂

  272. Hope I win this one! This is a great show, love watching it.

  273. Awesome show, I’ve watched a couple of episodes already. Big fan of Zoids and Gundams model kits. keep it guys ^^

  274. Yeah please make an instagram 😀 Hello from belgium 😛

  275. Good luck with settling in! Moving can be tough, especially when you need to re-evaluate how much space you can devote to you hobby!

  276. when can we see some of the exia Rg first looks? keep up the good work, would like the gouf kit bash, need something new to work on

  277. What’s up guys! Any word on the new pg? Your shows are always awesome. I love the fact that you guys truly love your job. Cheers with a glass of sake, wait that’s Kampai!

  278. How are macross kits compared to Gundam kits? Is the macross anime any good? 7-11 Gundam!

  279. I’ve watched a couple of your episode and I gotta say you guys are living the dream. KEEP LIVING THE DREAM!!!!

  280. Hey hey hey

  281. Cool Macross kit! Btw Syd & Ryan, do you guys know if the recent MG releases like GX and others are MG 3.0 or not?

  282. I want to see more macross stuff keep up the good work :3

  283. Awesome episode s always. I hope I win free gunpla!

  284. About Macross, are they going to have the Macross Frontier robots too or only Macross Plus?

    Just curious, have you guys been watching the Build Fighter series, especially the last episode? I hope they come out with kits based on the figures featured in that episode. I’m hoping for a MG of the new Fenice. 🙂

  285. keep up the great work guys and also hope i win 🙂

  286. yo

  287. i want

  288. I might win someday…

  289. episode 146… good role model for kids on perseverance.

  290. Loving that Neo Zeong but don’t think my wallet will stretch that far for the price it will be. Do you thing Bandai will ever make a Dark Gundam figure? Hoping I win that 7 11 RX 78-2.

  291. Just love hobbylink tv, still hoping for an instagram to be created by you guys! Why?! Cause both of your are AWESOME! Hope i will win 🙁

  292. anothr awsome ep ;D you know what kit id love to see a kit of a 1/100 of NEO SWEEDEN GUNDAM can´t recall it name but id buy it, id buy a f copy for some diffe color set ups it be awsome really Bandai needs to make that happen,
    hope i win to that be awsome ;D

    • It’s called “Nobel Gundam”, named after Alfred Nobel, the Swedish scientist who invented dynamite.
      Of course, Bandai went and butchered the name as they so often do, so now it’s called “Noble Gundam”.

  293. Great episode guys. Can’t wait to see that neo zeong in color to see all the details. Do you guys think this will encourage bandai to make a 1/100 kshatryia? Btw would be awesome to win those kits!

  294. Another great episode guys and congrats to Sid to moving to a new place. This episode was really insightful as I am starting to build my own custom HG Gundam. In regards to the new gundam series, I think it is just great to get Tomino back working on franchise. Personally, how well do you think new show would stack up to some of Tomino’s old works from the show’s preview?

  295. Another incredible Macross toy is always a PLUS! I am a big fan of that series and I wanna thank you guys for keeping me updated with all the latest kits and toys. I Cant believe Scott is giving away that awesome kit!!

  296. WOW A BOSS SCOTT’S BUILD! Is Boss Brian’s JSDF Type10 tank and Boss Scott’s LFA Lexus included in the giveaways too? I always envy you guys, it seems you have the best jobs in the world. Been watching GunplaTV for years now remember the episodes when Syd runs from the fields to the HLJ when he got a call that MG The O arrived, when Ryan finally joined you in Ep 40, when Japan had that nuclear plant problem and was praying that you’re all okay, and when Ryan announced that he’s gonna be a daddy. Your eyebags got a lot bigger since day one, but you’ve been spreading joy all over the world. Keep it up.

  297. i love macross and i love free stuff 🙂

  298. Ryan and i share the same spark with macross/robotech. Can’t wait to see that yf-19 tranformation. I’d been an avid follower of Syd since i started venturing into gunpla last September 2011.

    I wish i could take home that vf-1s and the 7-11 rx-78 special.

    Ganbatte ne for you guys and HLJ’s gunplatv.

  299. That HGUC Neo Zeong is larger than most small children. Is Bandai still making the HGUC Dendrobium on that note? That kit was pretty big, though most of it was the length of the enormous gunbarrel.

    I have to say, these Build Booster kits are making me pretty excited about this All Gundam Project. It’s supposed to make kitbashing HGs all the easier, which I am definitely all about.

    By the by, Syd, Build Fighters was definitely worth the watch. Even if you’re not a big fan of Gundam anime, the gunpla feature so strongly I think you’d get a huge kick out of it.

  300. Hey guys? What kit should I start with? And What’s your favorite Gundam Series? anyway More Power on you guys. Keep it up!
    And hoping to win the prize.lol

  301. Always been a fan of Macross/Robotech stuff…so this round of free giveaways would be a nice surprise. Got my fingers crossed.

  302. Syd, Tomino created the UC, he is basically the god of gundam. Also,you guys keep being awesome.

  303. Are you guys going to have a big event for episode 150 like in the past? Looking forward to get the 7-11 gundam!

  304. great show as always haha, can i ask what episode did you guys do the cutting of the hands of the gundam full armor i think, because i want to do it for my sinanju ova. Thanks guys 🙂

  305. Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnn

  306. Finally caught up, I’ve been building gunpla kits while listening to your old videos.
    Got back into gunpla building recently and have been spending weeks catching up to this episode.

  307. I want those free kits.

  308. Freedom has no V-Fin lol..

  309. Great show guys, keep up the good work. Nice to see Macross getting some love too. I can’t wait for the RG Exia and to really start digging into the new Build Fighters kits.

  310. Hei nice video guys… hope to win that kit…

  311. Awww man missing Gundam Build Fighters ; w ;”

    Keep up the great work guys ~~

  312. nice show. Syd, you just like promotion manager from Bandai. they should pay you to promote their gunpla hahaha. I’m not interesting with the backpack idea.for me it just a push over product. seeing that backpack just like the kids wearing a different school bag. it Gunpla, the gunda+zaku wearing a backpack to go to the war zone or the Solomon sea.

  313. Hi Syd & Ryan, another fantastic episode. You are both expert and great at this hobby that’s why we look up to you and patronize your show. I hope you may also upload your videos in itunes through podcast so it will be easy and we could also watch every episode anytime, anywhere on mobile phone or ipad.

  314. I love the YF-19 I think its the best looking out of all the macross fighters.

  315. hi syd and Ryan.so far Bandai RG didn’t have any significant change like the newest one Exia. that make rethink again to buy RG line except the RX 78-2 than already rare because mostly at least I already had the HG. do you think Bandai slightly will produce RG ver. KA?because I really like the Ver. Ka design. keep the Chanel on …

  316. Cool Beans! I’m wondering how does the winner get the prize for the episode?

  317. OH MY GOD!!!! Your giving away a Bandai Macross Valkyrie kit. Never before have I wanted my number to come up so bad.

    On a slightly more serious note, Fantastic video. Always waiting for the next in anticipation and I’m never disappointed. They just keep getting better.

  318. Sorry, I forgot to ask.

    Ryan. Since you’ve built the Iron Kong any chance we can get to see you build the D-Style version 🙂

  319. Oldtype reporting in. OMG that YF-19 is beautiful. Awesome giveaway! It would be an honor to have a kit that has been featured on the show.

  320. Hey guys, nice show as usual. I have a question, are there any more Gundam kits like the Tieren Ground type, with a less humanoid appearance ? Especially the plain Gundam RX looks too much like a person for me. Anything more in the way of Assault Suit Leynos or Votoms?

  321. Awesome show as usual guys.

  322. I really want that 7-11 gundam kit

  323. That exclusive 7-11 kit is pretty cool but I’m curious to see what a Macross kit is like. Great job as well guys.

  324. Hello, Syd and Ryan, Do you think Bandai will come out with a new perfect Grade Kit, if so what do you think it will be? Also what would you like to see as the next perfect grade kit? Keep up the good work as always.


  325. A rare 7-11 kit and the valkyrie, thank you random number generator!

    Have enjoyed many a Sunday morning drinking coffee and watching your show. Recently a friend’s 8 year old son just built his first Gundam, and an RG at that. Needles to say he’s hooked.

    Was going to send him to your site as you’ve done many “how-to” shows over the years, but noticed it’s a bit difficult to find them. I’d suggest creating a category of “How-To” to index your shows on.

    Thanks and keep up the great work. You guys have the dream job!

    ps: Ya, it’s a chicken in a body suit!


  326. another grate ep guys keep up the good work and hope u finish the custom you have been working on.

  327. Really a helpful episode! I was always wondering how BANDAI make those backpacks attaching to other HG kits. BTW which RX-78 version is the 7-eleven-color version based on?

  328. I just bought the mg universal booster! it is the best thing on earth.

  329. is the marcross plus fy-19 only available in japan

  330. Hey so the 7-11’s in Japan, do they sell slurpees? or do they call it something else?

  331. I wonder if sweat goes on before or after waterslides.

  332. Having ability to swap backpacks is a really nice idea, especially for those who doesen’t want to do hard customizing (thats me, heh), but connector in the waist… well, I think some suits may have problem with this – I fear upper part has good chances to come off very easy =|

  333. Hey love what you guys are doing. Is this your company? How did you guys fall into this wonderful position? PS the jokes are getting better:). In the words of Bill and Ted “Be Excellent to each other.”
    Thank you for continually keeping us updated on all things Gundam:)

  334. A very good information you guys got there …now I know what I really want to do with those expansion…bandai are really doing badass there..

  335. Great show as always and I am looking forward to Ryan’s YF-19 next week.

  336. Long time fan, new subscriber to the channel; and I have to say I love your show.

    My question is, what’s your favourite Gundam series?

  337. I love your show

    My question is, what’s your favorite Gundam HG series?

  338. man i wish we coudl get those 7-11 kits here in the US

  339. If I will be the lucky winner of those kits, can you please put your authograph on the box! Thank you so much! More videos to come!

  340. I, Syd, love pizza more than fish. Just ask my wife.

  341. Great Episode guys, That Macross toy is epic… (it’s YF-19 though, not VF haha) I can’t wait to see it transformed!

  342. What’s a gundam? Haha jk
    Great show, keep up the good work.

  343. Strike Freedom dark matter!?
    Building a Macross unit sounds interesting… doubt I will though but I will go back to building my Gundams.

  344. If I am the winner of those kits on Monday, can you please put sign your autographs on the box! Thank you so much! Keep up the good work syd n ryan!

  345. Wow…gundam kit is getting more & more interesting can’t wait for the ep 47 to see what kind of stuff it can do. thanks ryan & syd i do learn a lot about building kits from you guys.

  346. hi, thanks for the video, always showing great kits and giving great tips, I hope to win something

  347. woooooooooohooooooooo. another set of awesome giveaways. Thanks for doing this Syd & Ryan

  348. Great show guys! I think most Hg gundams come with good enough boosters/back accessories where i wouldn’t go out of my way to replace them with one of the build fighter boosters but i guess if i did it would probably have to be for a custom paint job project because other wise it just looks a little cheesy.

  349. Ryan transforming things on camera is stressful relax and have fun with it. Side note on the YF the Y is a designation for a test type/pre-production and is assigned to let the military know it is still in proving trials after in Macross production models get the V for variable/veritech (Macross/robotech). Syd I am working on getting my nieces and nephews into modeling (Gundam style). In your first videos you were using Copic (msp?) pens I believe for panel lines what would you recommend at this point for young starting gunpla builders. Also would be helpful if you could refer me to so resources or advise for an affordable intro kit to air brushing since they also seem interested in that line of painting. On a final note would not mind a 7-11 Gundam and Valkyrie.

  350. awesome show again guys go gunpla wooohooo

  351. me too and why have you lost the strike freedoms v fin?

  352. Great episode as always, keep up the good work!!!!!

  353. hmmm wonder how a valkyrie kit is built never built one seems cool is it expensive?

  354. Hey Syd and Ryan, I have one question and it bother for quite a long time. How is to work at HLJ? Do you guys feel any pressure form the boss or it’s relatively relax? By the way, that YF-19 from Arcadia looks fantastic! I don’t see you guys showing Kotobukya Frame Arms. I hope to see them feature in a future Gunpla TV episode. Keep on the good work and hope Mr. number make me win that beautiful VF-1 of Ryan.

  355. Are those Gundam 7-11 kits still on sale?

  356. Just got my order from hlj.com! 4 bandai macross kits, 4 nomo ken, and the ism gundam book! Waiting for the second batch from hlj.com, 4 macross frontier kits, 4 macross shirts, and 6 action bases (all back ordered). Excellent services guys, keep the awesome coming!!! XD

    PS hope the move goes off without a hitch, Syd! Ryan, I think that gigantor HG has your name all over it!

  357. Miss Sazabiii!!

  358. Hey, guys nice job for the past 2 or 3 years on Gunpla TV.
    Can you guys make a tutorial for people trying or want to make a diorama scene?
    Hope to win the kits

  359. It was interesting to see the Build fighters back packing in use with other HG’s. But that VF-19 looks awesome. Hopefully get one, one day. Also is there any chance you guy’s might get to review the new RG Exia before it release like you did with the strike Freedom?

  360. Has any one else wondered if EP:7 of Unicorn will be the end of the progressive story lines of the Universal Century? On side notes I really like it that Bandai is trying to promote people to make a kit their own and bring in the younger generation(I grew up watching gundam so I am always happy to see younger people who enjoy it too). As for Macross I haven’t watched only but a few episodes of it, I will say their models and overall design is very spectacular. That Neo Zeong is purely insane, it’s one very nice and big looking machine, I would like to see the engineering that goes in to the Zeong to appear in other models as well, because I’m pretty sure Bandai will pull out all the stops since they are making history with it.

  361. Hi guys. Nice episode. She, congrats on moving. Is very stressful but exciting at the same time. The worse part of moving is unpacking at the new place. You absolutely cannot find the things you are looking for in all those boxes.

    Anyways, Would love to get the 7-11 gundam and the macross kit. Would be my 1st macross kit and want to see how challenging it is.

  362. Again a nice episode.

  363. Syd and Ryan,

    As always you two do an AWESOME show. Keep the Gunpla love.

  364. Hi Guys,

    Great show as ever.

    Have you ever spoken to Bandai about selling the online only kits on HLJ? You could mark them for international buyers only.

  365. Been stuck in the hospital for a week hlj and hobby link tv keeping me strong. Can’t wait to be home building gunpla again! Keep up the great work guys. Do you think we will see the other gundams from gundam wing in new hgs like wing gundam?

  366. I am going to HAVE to build that Neo Zhong.

  367. Great episode. I appreciate seeing some macross.

  368. Hahaha I can just see it now:

    [interior, 2-3am Saturday, some hip roponggi club]

    Some dude who vaguely resembles Ryan to Maria Ozawa lookalike: so, would you like to play with my massive Neo Zeong ?

  369. That YF-19 looks really nice. You really get the feeling of good quality just by looking at the pictures.

    I have a question. I love the design of Geara Zulu and its different modifications(Rozen Zulu, Angelo Sauper Custom etc.) So, do you guys know if we are ever going to see any of the Zulu mobile suits in 1/100 scale?

  370. love to win those kits

  371. 7-11 Gundam! Very nice!!!

  372. I wanna win that Valkyrie!!! BTW Love the show

  373. wow guys nice show ,first things I thank you for the years of cheaper price and quick delivery of your services . my question is did I had to mention” I will like to win the prise “, to actually win the price? ,base on your video the guys who win the prise had mention he hope to win the prise , and my second question is why is hlj didn’t sale any polishing compound I thought there were,and I hope to win the prise this time.

  374. hey guys i really love Zakus and find it disappointing that their is not that much of wide selection. I would really like to see a MG version of the Zaku worriers. do you think Bandai will ever make one or just keep spitting out crappy version of the strike. PS love the RX178 and the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II Titans hate the Gundam build version.

  375. just recently started to build gunplas, and also by chance watching this channel. I think you guys are great, please revisit some of the building techniques in future series! keep up the good work.

  376. are you gonna give away the yf-19 too? lol keep up the great show you guys!

  377. Oh, love the 7 eleven gundam any promote stuff are hard to get here even if you want to pay for it. The only free thing I can get in Australia from 7 eleven is a free slurpee and the only way you can get it is to prove your birthday is on 7/11. They need this kind of promote here.

  378. A great episode again! I can’t wait when you guys can showcase the MG turn X gundam. Greetings from Holland.
    Ps: I really like the colorscheme from that 7-11 gundam.

  379. Just got my second YF-19 from HLJ! We can only hope that Arcadia releases a new YF-21! The old just doesnt look right next to the new YF-19.

  380. You guys are awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!# giveaway

  381. Hey, Syd and Ryan! Good show as always. I just want to ask. When i check the site looking for MG, i noticed that MG Unicorn Phenex will be discontinued. I actually want to get my hands on that kit when i have save more money. Do you know why? Thx

    here: http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN986534/Gun

  382. The YF-19 rules! Way better than the YF-21 🙂

  403. nice review keep up the great work

  404. I purchased an HGUC Silver Bullet back in March mainly because of the bonus Weapon/Joint set that is offered with the purchase of an HG kit. I live in Hamilton Ontario Canada and when I opened the box, to my surprise, there was no bonus set. The website is still showing the promotion as being active. Why did I not get the bonus set?

  405. nice show!

  406. omg! the 7/11! I won’t hide it: I NEED THIS GUY IN MY COLLECTION!
    Damn I’m in japan next month, do you have an idea about where to still find some of the 7/11 series, or is it a lost cause to search for these?
    best regards, cheers,

  407. where’s the 147th episode?

  408. Thanks for the kits. (presumptuous of me eh?)

  409. That YF-19 0.0 it looks amazing ^^ really need to get me one of those

  410. That YF-19 0.0 it looks amazing ^^ really need to get me one of those. Great episode and in regards to the Neo Zeong I really cannot wait for it, I make stop motion videos so having a scene were a loaf of gunplas fight that beast would be amazing ^^

  411. That YF-19 0.0 it looks amazing ^^ really need to get me one of those. Great episode and in regards to the Neo Zeong I really cannot wait for it, I make stop motion videos so having a scene were a load of gunplas fight at Titan would be fantastic 😛

    P.S. The Valkyrie and 7/11 gundam look like cool prizes but just how damaged is the Valkyrie that you’re scared to open the box xD

  412. yeah!

  420. Great video as always guys. Robot Damashii kits are soooo cool. There are some great figures in that line that never got a plastic model form (still waiting for a Gunbuster 1/100 scale).

    And I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not
    mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few of these remarks appear as if they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like
    to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of all of all your community sites like your Facebook page,
