  1. Awesome, Can’t wait for the RG exia
    When the king come the loyal knight will stand in fear LOL
    Monkey see Monkey dO
    Can you do an unboxing of the HG turn A gundam Syd ?
    when they come they come good in

  2. Would love to do a custom paint job on reborns!

  3. Exia ! Exia ! Can`t wait to get my hands on it..and hopefully on a RG 00 7 Sword in the future ..one can only hope

  4. Finally, RG Exia, can’t wait for it

  5. sorry guys, I won’t be able to build anything new for a while, getting the Full Armor Unicorn Ver.Ka Master Grade in a day or so! Very excited. Also, no slurpees? I’m pretty sure that’s illegal. Although when I visited Japan, I ended up trying so many different drinks I wasn’t bothered.

  6. FYI there is such thing as a VF-19, and they have action figures of those too. the general shape is the same, but there are some minor differences.

    I think the feet on the YF-19 aren’t fully transformed.

    On the previous version on the action figure, you needed to pull the feet from the shins. I would imagine it being the same with this one.

    This would let you pose it in more of a bird stance.

    • Yeah, the “Y” just means “prototype”. (“X” is “experimental” and Y comes after X, so…) So it’s a prototype of the VF-19. VF-19A looks just like the prototype. The Macross 7 ones are a bit different.

  7. Great Episode. It must suck to not have slurpees in Japan.

  8. Can’t wait for the video on the RG Exia. That video will decide for me wether or not I should buy it.

  9. Can’t wait for exia maybe u guys will still get an early copy anything possible keep yo fingers crossed

  10. Syd when you go back to visit Canada, your slurpie is on me! Good episode guys.

  11. Ay yo Syd! Do you recommend getting rid of seam lines on kits you aren’t going to paint but that are going to be topcoated?

  12. Valverave! Wow, 7/11 with neither slurpee nor gulp that’s depressing ’cause that’s the only thing I buy when I walk inside of a 7/11 convenience store.

  13. pick me!

  14. great show guys haha, i have a question for syd what episode did you guys do the cutting of the hand of the full armor gundam? i think its the full armor, cause i want to do it with my sinanju ova thanks guys.

  15. Once again a good ep of gunpla tv,can’t wait to see the RG EXIA.

  16. That YF-19 looks pretty awesome! Looking forward to seeing battroid mode.

  17. Can’t wait to see what you guys do for ep. 150 keep up the good work.

  18. Are we ever going to get a Bandai MG Kshatriya?

  19. Anyone else freaking out over the new Gouf from Build Fighters coming out in a few months?

  20. Nice action figure! I have quite a few of the ones released here in the US (basically gundam wing and G gundam). Hope to win!

  21. that Kshatriya look awsome!

  22. I guess Japan loses out on slurpees but gains it back with their fascinating convenience store food.

    And I’m loving the BB FA Unicorn with its adorably hilarious proportions compared to its regular HG/MG form.

  23. Can’t wait to see the Exia!!

  24. Seven… Eleven… without… Slurpees? MY WORLD IS CRUMBLING! WHAT IS AIR?! WHAT IS AIR?!?!

  25. hi and hello..i can not wait for HGBF Gouf R35 ,and have you Syd and ryan hear the news on they making the Gundam build fighter season2 or not pls info more and any any gundam build figher review by you guys and hear your idea of the anime , hope it soon..ps i will try my luck again the win free plamo

  26. Thx for the vid….can i comment more than 1 time?

  27. That Valvrave though …

  28. Can’t wait for EXIA!!! Btw Syd are you going to do a review on MG Exia Ignition Mode?

  29. Hi Syd and Ryan,I have a hard time cutting nubmarks its always either I scratch the part because of maybe the knife is slanted or not cutting the nubmarks because of lack of force because I’m scared to damage the part .
    so I rewatched your old episodes(1-30 the tutorial ones?), and I noticed how syd cuts the nubmarks so easy with a hobby knife. will you please make another tutorial for removing nubmarks . 😀

  30. I can’t wait to get my BB Senshi Sengoku Astray!

  31. I must say those ratchet joints sometimes gives me quite a scare when moving them, (same feeling from moving my Play Arts Kai Vergil) but they do help in posing, and from the sound of it looks like its gonna be stiff for a long time

  32. Great stuff as always fellas!

  33. Looks like its happy hour for decals on that yf-19. Man I have a slurpee everyday, don’t know wut I’d do without slurpee’s, or gundam, or fairy tail anime.

  34. OMG I love those two kits for the draw this time!

  35. A 7-11 with no Slurpees or taquitos is a 7-11 not worth walking into.

  36. Great episode guys.

  37. Hi Syd and Ryan (Ryan and Syd), great show as always. I can understand that 7-11 isn’t the same without slurpees, but there are many parts of Japanese combinis that I miss back here in the states, especially those ingenous ketchup/mustard packets for the “American Dogs”. It’s one of the many things I miss about Japanese food including ramen, yakitori, and matsuya. Anyways, I am really looking forward to the RG Exia, as I’m sure most everyone else here is. Keep up the good work!

  38. I as just thinking about doing something with a 1.5 Gundam. Reborns would be just as cool. And can’t wait to see that RG Exia. Been looking forward to that kit for a while.

  39. Can’t wait for the RG Exia whenever you guys are previewing it. Great Episode as usual!!!

  40. Hey Cid and Ryan,

    Great episode and I hope to keep seeing some more. So a couple of days ago I was building the full armor Gundam Thunderbolt version,and while I was cutting of the V-fin crest from the runners being as careful as I possibly could, I must have put too much pressure into the cut and the tiny peace went flying and ricocheted around the room. Needless to say, I can NP longer find the part. Has this ever happened to you? Also do you know of any parts replacement services available to US residents? Really appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks and keep up the great work!

  41. Yes! RG Exia at last!

  42. Hi Syd & Ryan,
    Thanks for all the hard work and constant updates with latest releases. Your videos make every purchase so much more worthwhile.
    I can’t wait for the RG Exia and other upcoming release this year including all those builder parts! Please do a video of the builder parts and how creative they can be in the hands of experts like yourselves.
    – Kelvin

  43. Common Random number generator, I need that clear head piece of the reborns and I really want the red valvrave. 🙂

  44. Hey Syd and Ryan,

    So we’re already 4 months into the year(soon to be 5), and there have already been some pretty nice MG kits released and announced, but what do you think will be the “big kit” this year? That one standout MG that will make everyone go nuts for. I know I would go absolutely nuts if Bandai decided to shock the world and Drop a Xi Gundam or Gundam Mark 5 out of the blue.

  45. not your best show,there’s no kit that build in the show.Syd, do you have any plan to make the list again about the best MG? my question still the same, do you think bandai will make the RG ver. Ka? because from the new RG list, they just same old gundam. because i’m hoping new feature from RG. And Ryan Syd, I vote 1 for Turn A gundam to be build in the next episode.

  46. I hope you guys show the Crossbone Maoh built next time. I really like how badass the kit looks like. The HG Turn A is making me a lot more excited for the MG Turn X, too.

  47. wtb slurpee

  48. I am LOOOKING forward to having more RG Gundams, they are so nice and real! good ep147!keep watching you guys!nice show!

  49. Sweet, now I don’t have to search every 711 when I go to Japan. Thanks for the info!

  50. i am going to have kids soon, and i was kinda worry whether can still doing gunpla or not. Thanks for the heads up.
    Hope to see RG exia next week.

  51. great episode ryan and syd 🙂 how’s your kit bash doing syd? would love to see it in your next gunpla tv episode 🙂 godspeed and keep gunpla!

  52. Mmmm that Kshatriya is looking pretty epic. Too bad the HG is so expensive.

  53. I am excited for your coverage on the Shizuoka hobby show.

    Would like to see a ZSSA HGUC that isn’t a CAD render. Keep up the great work guys.

  54. RG EXIA HERE I COME!!! 😀 BTW great episode guys but why didn’t you guys upload a video last week? I was waiting for you guys all day.

  55. Cool episode! 😀 I’m looking forward to your RG Exia review.

  56. Great Episode! RG exia is cool!

  57. Man i woud LOVE to work on that Ray but my skill level isnt even cloese to tackle some thing like this :/ Mabie in the future :]
    Also thanks for the info bout the 7-Eleven gundam models, im having a trip to Japan in about a month and ill try to get myself as many exclusive gundam kits as possible ^^ (my main objective is to find the pink Beargguy ^^)
    If i ever get anywhere close to Sano ill make sure to pop into HLJ ^^

  58. I broke my Gundam Nu ver. ka. hand armor piece, the small ‘U’ shape on both hands! so frustrated.

  59. Breat episode. I love the turn A gundam!!

  60. Cant wait for the RG Exia and that Turn a looks so nice cant wait to finally get it and make a custom.

  61. Hello World

  62. hope you do an awesome review on the rg exia, its popularity is probably because the gundam is quite unique unlike the 00 which compared to my other gundams has a lot of simarlities, like the body piece which I have seen on the strike and astray gundam

  63. Sadly, there’s no MG release for this month and I haven’t heard about new a new MG for next month as well. This is sad, but hey! I’m happy for RG fans as RG Exia’s around the corner.

    Anyway, I enjoyed this episode more than the other because of the automatic peace sign, which I do also have even though I’m not in Japan; the YF-19 vs Kshatriya battle and lastly, the slurpee talk. I’ve been there for a week this last February and I saw a slurpee like machine, but I doubt that it’s called that way.

  64. Awesome Kshatriya! I’ve always wondered; what’s the quality like on Robot Damashii when compared to MG?

  65. hi syd and ryan..i was wondering.. what now that the rg exia is comming can we get the extra accessories/add-on of the kit? i mean the cloak of the exia repair and all those battle damage parts or bandai will make a new kit with new parts? do you have any news about it?? tnx… by the way im from the philippines.. MABUHAY SA INYONG LAHAT GUNPLA TV!!!

    • Hey, Kababayan. Have you tried ordering on hlj? Just want to asked how much the shipping and customs cost? I’m I bit hesitant to order in hlj because of that. Can you enlighten me?
      Thanks

  66. heya Syd and Ryan. good episode as always. there’s this one thing tho.. I was scared so much by the way you are moving the kshatriya’s wing.. sounds fragile.. anyway, thanks for the EP.. looking forward to RG Exia!

  67. Gotta get that valvrave!

  68. I must say as a vf-19 diamond force Valkyrie owner (got it in your recent macross sale btw), it is a little bit painful to see you transform the Valkyrie without retracting the landing gear c’mon guys first step, first step

    • Yeah, it was all a bit painful. The not-quite-fighter-mode at the start of the video, the not-fully-transformed arms, and the Gerwalk pose without the legs swung far enough forward… And yes, the landing gear! I’m sure Ryan will get the hang of it, though.

  69. Hi guys. I would like to ask if the crossbones are out of stock as i heard it is going down pretty fast…
    Hope you two will continue gunpla tv forever, HOBBYLINK JAPAN, FTW!!!
    Come on, i hope i will win this time…

  70. Looking forward to Shizuoka Hobby Show, hoping for some MG surprises, maybe another 3.0 on the horizon. Or maybe some 00 MGs… but we know that wont happen.

    Great show as usual, thanks for the competition.

  71. Cannot wait for the RG Exia to be on the show. Now it’s time to roll the dice for that 7 Eleven Gundam. Great show as always guys!

  72. To the person asking about painting the rubber part on the PG Wing Zero Custom’s waist. That piece is VERY soft and flexible. I would definitely not wanting to paint it over.

    If you paint a complete coat over that part, the moment you twist the waist, the paint will crack.

    If you are just going to drybrush a bit of paint on the edges to dirty it up though, then it should be fine.

  73. cant wait on the shizz expo coverage guys!

  74. So whats it gonna take for me to get that RG Zaku poster behind you?

    Also for painting on rubber/rubber coated material. It will always crack and flake off. I used Aquaflow paint (which is a flexible acrylic paint for airbrush) which lasted a long time but it will all depend on the movement you do afterwards.

  75. Can’t wait for that Exia update guys Exia is my favorite gundam from double oh. Hope to also win the reborns and that valrave always intersting to get new kits other then gundam.

  76. That Metal Gear Rey looks awesome! Another nice show guys~

  77. “Metal… Gear…?”

    Awesome, I can’t wait to get my hands on that Metal Gear Ray kit, thanks for showing it off a bit! And That YF19 looks pretty sweet too! As excited as I am to see the Exia, I look forward to seeing the rest of the transformation of that beauty as well! Keep up the good work guys

  78. like every episode u post

  79. I managed to get me a nu gundam in 7-11 colors (imported of course, cheaper than ebay prices!) and I like what it tries to do, but after the nu gundam ver ka it feels old…I had to paint some of the vents in orange just so it looks as good as its promo pics.

    That and I wish these had water slides, no matter how much and what top coat you use stickers come off sooner or later…unless someone *looks around* has any tips or tricks to make stickers stick…better?

    Also news flash HG UNICORN GUNDAM 7-11 VERSION, I SAW IT COMING, BUT IM HAVING A HARD TIME PICTURING STICKER PLACEMENT AND COLOR CHANGES (would of been better on the full armor, green gattling guns anyone?)

  80. I tried so hard
    And got so far
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter
    I had to fall
    To lose it all
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter

  81. Can’t wait to see the rg exia.

  82. Great episode guys. However i won’t cook while watching because I just burned my food.

  83. Thank god, I’ve been waiting for me HLTV fix! 😛

  84. review the rg exia

  85. I’d love to see more turn A kits in actual grades, mainly the Kapool/Capule though. That little circle is one of my favorite designs.

  86. Just asking, how do you give the metallic effects on the kit?

  87. Nice video guys! cant wait to see the rg exia!

  88. Glad to see Ryans “tool time” to make a return. you know after Ryan mentioned tool time a few episodes ago, I felt a bizarre desire to Photoshop Syd and Ryan over Wilson and Tim………I still haven’t done it. but lets just stop here before things get out of hand. OH SNAP WE JUST WENT FULL CIRCLE!!!! What have I done…

  89. Hey guys, great show like always. I would really love to see that Metal Gear Ray put together as well as more Zoids! I know that they are hard to get but it still doesn’t stop me from hoping to see a Liger Zero with the Panzer unit on the show! Keep up the good work guys, looking forward to the next episode.

  90. I hope more Build Fighter Kits see a MG release. Would love to have one big Crossbone Maoh!

  91. Hey Syd and Ryan! You can’t go wrong with the Neo Zeong!!! I can’t wait to see it on your show when it finally comes out.

  92. Will you be showing an assembled Turn A Gundam on the show? Awesome episode as always and that Kyshatria looks like a beast.

  93. Great show guys! can’t wait for the rg exia!!

  94. im still in it to win it

    and when it comes to painting the RG frame only use a thin or one coat of paint because of how the armor parts contact to it. Or only paint the parts that are showing/you want to display

  95. Great episode. It’s pretty impressive that the Kshatriya can stand up on his own with all four funnel pods up like that! My experience with Robot Damashi is limited though. I much rather prefer to build my Gundams.

  96. Kinda disappointed HGCC Turn A didn’t get one of the main highlights. Come on guys! How could you skip reviewing the only gundam which could do the laundry!!

  97. Comment for the contest.

  98. Great episode guys! Man, that Robot Damashi Kshatriya looks awesome! I also can’t wait to get my hands on the Cross Maoh and Turn-A kits.

  99. Good morning Syd and Ryan….that what i said….!!!! another good episode, can’t wait to see the next episode about battle royal mode of the kit that you show. have a nice morning i said…^^

  100. “That’s what she said.”: It never gets old.

  101. I love the Valvrave Hito 😀

  102. I fell in love with the exia sine the first episode of 00, cant wait for the real grade !!!!

  103. Why does the YF-19 have to be so expensive! DX

  104. Can’t wait for rg Exia!!!!

  105. Great episode guys! The Robot Damashii Kshatriya looks fantastic! Definitely going to have to save up and get one! For now I’m just waiting on the RG Exia, should be a great kit!

  106. Awesome, the FA Unicorn SD, do you know how much paint it needs for those weapons? also how are the sd sazabi, nu, and kshatriya?

    • not to mention, i really really want a reborns gundam, but even more so a Valvrave Hito!? whaaat? have you guys done a review for that?

  107. You guys really had me at “That’s what she said!”, man the face on Ryan! Anyways, I hope you guys can do a tutorial on how to do a simple LED modification on kits. I would like to do one on an RG Exia soon. Thanks and more power!

  108. The NZ-666 looks great, do you think the damaahi kit is better or equal to the HG and MG version

  109. Awesome Episode

  110. Ryan Good job on the transform nice to hear the confidence in your voice. Hearing the clicks on that lets me know that is a solid YF unit. I do enjoy Valvrave and would love that kit. Do you guys know if the joints are compatible with any Gundams?

  111. who would win in a fight? wing zero tv version or wing zero proto ew?

  112. The guys back at damashi definitely know how to make those kits, was surprised when the clicking in place hold things on the “wings” where shown. Give props to those guys.

    Show was excellent, always look forward to a new episode, keep up the great work.

    PS. I love the Valvrave mech design and show, maybe I’ll have a chance to win this kit. 😀 And Reborns gundam was always interesting to me, one of the 2 or 3 kits from 00 that I want but haven’t gotten yet.

  113. slurpees are fun until about 40% into it.

  114. Love the show, has there been any new on any new Zoids model kits coming out? They need to make some more of the fliers like the Raynos!

  115. can’t wait to see the RG exia…:)

  116. Wow what a great surprise! Thanks, keep up the great work. 🙂

  117. The last time you played with a model kit. You was in the warehouse.
    It was a RG Gundam MK-II(A.E.U.G)

  118. LOL at the first scene. I like your humour guys. The RD Kshatriya looks pretty amazing.

  119. Have you ever watched snakes on a plane?

  120. Dear Syd and Rye…
    I’m curious on how Rye was transforming (if not torturing) YF-19 before you guys decided to censor the process…
    Could you maybe give us a little sneak peak???

    And a little question for Syd…
    A couple of weeks ago I tried to spray paint my gunpla using spray can…
    But I seemed to have done it wrong because the result was rough on the surface just like the skin of an orange fruit…
    Can you give me any advice on how to repair it???

  121. Good job guys. Nice episode as usual. Can’t wait for the exia. It’s quite amazing that Bandai make an RG for Exia which is small and slim in comparison to other suit.

  122. Thanks guys for showing Metal Gear Ray, looks awesome. Tbh it would look s**t with just a top coat, this bad boy is gonna need some paint and form all the promo art I think it’s time I figured out how to do pearlescent paint jobs.
    Don’t worry Ryan it wasn’t painful at all for the transformation, I just skipped through it lol.

  123. After Z Gok, please give Reborns with RG treatment!!

  124. hahahah when you guys did the pose i died of laughter, this episode was awesome u guys rock.

  125. Great episode guys, loved the Robot Damashi (Side MS) Kshatriya and the 1/144 HGBF Crossbone Gundam Maoh haha!!

  126. Hello guys. I mis you guys. Cant you make gunpla tv twive a week please … 🙂

  127. Now i want that Kshatria, my wife says we dont have money for that…..thats what she said. 😛

  128. Nooo, Random number Generator you failed me.. Why, No. 158. my post was 157.. so close but yet so far.. Brain Freeze

  129. Nice video, hope to win 😀
    btw what are your thoughts on the strike freedom full burst mode gold plated parts, the review was kind of bad overall but I personally liked it to a certain extent, hope to hear from you. 😀

  130. cant wait for the RG Exia to be reviewed by you guys!

  131. The Japanese don’t know the greatness of slurpees

  132. Please consider me for the free models. You can’t complain about something that is free. Any models I can add to my collection is great.

  133. I feel so left out not knowing what 7Eleven is… (._.)

  134. The Kshatriya has always been such a cool design. I feel if Bandai is going to jump into things like an HGUC Neo Zeong, they should do awesome things like MG Kshatriya or MG Nightengale. Anyway, great episode! Excited to see if i won the contest! Love Valverave!

  135. I’m too excited about the RG Exia!

  136. Good Lord that Kshatryia is amazing, by the way hope i can win Valvrave 1 😀

  137. 😀

  138. Oh man, you just put up two hella of beast kits in the comp!

    And btw, the sd version of full armor unicorn actually looked good for a size that small.

  139. Who doesn’t like free stuff? Great show, love the hobby, has helped immensely with my manual dexterity.

  140. Awesome!!!, V Sign, You guy mean Selfie !!!

  141. Ahh another classic episode, great job. I love the reborns gundam so if I am the winner I would be quite happy. Keep up the good work

  142. What is this madness! No slurpee at 7-11

  143. Looking forward to see the yf-19 transformation complete. Always loved that design it makes me ponder getting that piece. Another great episode, look forward to some new builds. Come on RG Exia!!

  144. Gundam 00 was the first gundam series i watched, i think it’s my turn to be chosen

  145. Shouldn’t the Kshatriya be referred to as a “her” since its piloted by Marida Cruz?

    • Does an airplane change it’s “sex” when a female’s driving it? Or a horse for that matter? ‘Triya’s a big and bulky, well armored, well armed fat suit painted like something resembling the army green theme that more than says about it’s “sex” in it’s robotic world than compared with, say, a Nobell Gundam for that matter that looks more like a work from Hajime Sorayama’s sexy robot girl or looking like something you may see in Sailor Moon series.

  146. oh my that satchtria looks so beast!

  147. give me valrave

  148. Great episode! cant wait to see next weeks episode.

  149. Hey guys love the show. Do you think bandai will make a MG Leo and any of its variants?

  150. Is it just me or should more gundams have turn a style moustaches. Who else would love to see a MG Neo Zeong.

  151. PG RUBBER PART PAINTING PROBLEM SOLUTION
    The problem with the PG Wing Custom and painting the rubbery parts can be solved with lacquer paints, as per Youtuber with a callsign vegeta8259 while he was building his MG Wing Custom that shares that rubber material with the PG and the video URL at a time when he starts talking about painting the rubber parts can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=1UV33T-Ymlk#t=512
    It’s a good video showing what a good paintjob does to a kit and the level of the upgrade it delivers. But to be 100% sure that you won’t melt away the parts do try it on a sprue first. I do hope that helps.

    Regards

    • Just watched the link as well out of interest. Conclusion ( Which he admits himself ) He lucked in. With a light dusting of post shade the laquer had no effect on the rubber parts. I have been modelling for around 30 years and have not found a suitable solution yet. The issue is that when actually coating the rubber part laquer and waterbased with dry but not stick. The paints when dry, dry hard with no flex in the paint so as soon as you apply any stress or bend to the part it will crack and flake off. Oil based paints stay softer for longer but ultimately also dry hard and will flake off. they only thing that might work would be a flexable rubberised paint. A kind of latex or fabric paint that when dry will still flex and bend without cracking. The downside is that there probably wont be a clear in those ranges of paints so you will have to put up with whatever finish you end up with, with the paint itself.

      Where I live it’s incredible difficult to get these type of paints to try so I hope you have better access. I have the MG Version 1.0 Zeta and the folding V-fins are rubber to allow flex during transformation. I’m using the fixed plastic V-fins that can in the kit but you have to remove them to change form. So I’m still looking for a workable solution to get the rubber bits to work without paint flake.

      Sorry for the long reply but I hope this helps you or other reading and maybe Ryan and Syd can read it on GUNDAM TV 148.

  152. The Kshatriya looks great! Hey Syd, any news of the new real grades?

  153. Nice show, can’t wait your first look at Exia.

  154. Can’t wait to see the RG Exia! I wonder if someone can do a Dark Matter customization on the RG Exia…
    I guess all that’s left for the Sengoku Astray now is PG.

  155. I wish there was a MG or RG Khsantriya ! Would be awesome to make that beast. A Ver KA would be icing on the cake ^^

  156. Can’t wait for Gundam Unicorn episode 7.
    Is the Full Armor Unicorn Gundam (Destroy Mode) worth the buy?

  157. Syd I’m sadden to hear of the lack of Slurpee available to you folk on your side of the world. It sounds more like hell than heaven at your 7-11’s. I will raise my Slurpee with a sad heart and pour some out for my Homies on the east side!
    It’s cool that you read all these and glad you find some humor in our banter. On a serious note- Syd what would your favorite RG kit be to date. Just curious.
    Thanks for the great show again

  158. Hey Ryan and Syd! I wanted to know what your opinion is on Gundam Build Fighters custom built kits featured in Hobby Japan or Dengeki Hobby magazines. Examples – God Gundam Kiwami and Zeta Gundam Honoo.
    Keep up the great work.

  159. I’d like to see a neo Zeong pg XD but seriously I want the neo Zeong hg soon

  160. Great show! That Kshatriya is awesome! I hope you guys might review some of the Yamato 2199 kits sometime! 🙂

  161. great episode guys! and do you guys know when rg exia will be released?

  162. what does the gerwalk mode do?

  163. great show.

  164. Hey great episode. Still looking forward to RG Exia.

  165. That RB Kshatriya looks amazing! I’m glad the fin funnel binders have accommodating ratchet joints to ensure weight wouldn’t be a huge issue. Also loving that custom action base as almost the majority of Robot Damashii don’t come with one. Another great episode guys!

  166. Not having slurpee in Japan is really surprising. I figured they’d have some weird flavors for it like kitkat does.

  167. hi guys, I hope to win the valkyrie, because I love macross, the Kshatriya Robot Damashi seems amazing
    I can not wait for next week
    thanks for the episode

  168. Kshatriya is awesome. But why didn’t you guys showed us nice feature it has in its “wings”? Part with funnels should open in the outside, I think it’s pretty cool

  169. Love the show guys! Keep nerd culture alive! Hahaha

  170. DUUUUUUDDDE that valvrave doe really want it 😀

  171. Great vid as always guys. The YF-19 is really cool looking but I can’t wait till the 1/72 RVF-25 comes out. What do you think about it Ryan? Are you going to do a video on this kit when it you guys receive it? I sure hope so.

  172. Hi syd and ryan ! I definitely love your show and buying stuffs from hlj too 🙂 you guys are the best !

    p/s : cant wait for MG Turn A to be in stock ^^)

  173. great episode guys. always miss u when u take extra week. cant wait for next one already. i love valvrave. space vamps with bots epic. hope i win. and long live 7/11

  174. i really enjoy watching gunplatv guys! you guys are doing a great job! with that said, i want some free stuff. haha thanks.

  175. another great episode guys go gunpla! i hope i win some day

  176. Gundam full armor Unicorn is soo beast

  177. i’m getting more excited when u say RG exia will be on next week. Can’t wait for your video to came up to fill in the unboxing the RG exia.

  178. It would mean the world to me if i could at least win a kit. BTW loved the new ep. keep up the good work

  179. Did all the Gundam Unicorn episodes come out in theatres in Japan.

  180. All the SD Unicorn models look impressive, especially would like to pick up the Full Armor Unicorn in Destroy Mode. Even the newer HGs look to have more nods to the franchises, i.e., the peace signs included with the Crossbones Moah. Even with the Khastriya Damashii,with the thumbs up sign.
    Super bummed you mentioned there will be no advanced look at the Exia RG. Other than that, kudos to you guys for sending out free kits to those interested enough to include feedback to the episodes. Someday I would like to end up with one, especially the Reborns model presented.

  181. Hi guys,
    Thanks for the great episode. Can’t wait to see the next episode for the full transformation of the YF-19. While watching your show, I can’t help myself looking at the Zaku poster behind Syd. Makes me wonder if Bandai have such type of posters for sale.
    As for the 7-11 RX78, it looks great. In the final episode of the Gundam Build Fighter, they introduced the Build Strike Gundam Cosmos. Will Bandai put out that model for sale?
    I am hoping Bandai to put out a 35th anniversary Perfect Grade for sale.
    Anyways, looking forward for the next show. Thanks.

  182. hey Sid and ryan I was wondering if there is a chance hlj will sell a mg banshee norn? ecause it is xpensive in other places.thank you for the show, and I hope I get some of the free gunpla 😉

  183. Valverave was one of those shows that I was really excited about and then I never followed through with. But the mechs were really nice, I really should go back and finish it so I have an excuse to buy the kits.

    Also cannot wait to see the close up on the RG Exia, it will be a beauty. I felt like the RG line was really made for sleek, lean kits, and the exia is the epitome of sleek and lean so I’m sure it’ll be incredible in RG.

  184. Yo, guys, love the stuff. I’d also sure love a gundam, whatup?

  185. Syd I am thinking about painting my sinaju ver ka but i was thinking of how to do the gold designs. Would it be better to paint the hole thing gold then paint in the black or do the black then carefully do the scroll work. Thank you in advice for the input to help me decide.

    Wingzero34

  186. Kshatriya in mg please. Great show, I’m jealous of the person who won 7/11 gundam.

  187. I Totally forgot they made Valverave kits

  188. That Kshatriya is darn beautiful.

  189. no building gunpla? so sad. so which one that you will build in next episode? I hope Full armor, because I am hopping that that gunpla will in the giveaway list in the future ha ha ha. I hope i am lucky this time

  190. Have u guys seen the yf30? Can’t wait to preorder that. What do you like about RGs?
    I find them to small.
    Good episode guys.

  191. If only we can get a MG Kshatriya for the December release……Come on stop teasing us with HG’s.

  192. Hi Syd and Ryan, great show as per normal, are you looking forward to Shizuoka and have any kits you secretly can’t wait to see besides the Neo Zeong (even my wife said “How come you haven’t pre-ordered one?”)?

  193. I meant great episode. Please review the turn A mg when available.

  194. Hey guys great show but i have to disagree with you. the YF 19 is one of the worst looking macross figures I have seen along with his big blue rival. Anyway i would love to see an mg version of all the mobile suits from this youtube video check it out you will love it. (Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn) – All Mobile Suits 【 ver.Episode1~6 】)

  195. that robot damashi Kshatriya is massive!
    sid will u get an advance copy of the rg exia?
    I hope you do so we can a glimpse of it earlier than the release date.
    and please will you guys do a review of the robot damashi sinanju animation colors and possible a comparison of the old one.
    thanks and great episode.

  196. Reborns! Them high heels.. mm mmmm! You know, perhaps Ribbons was so batshit because despite propping his seat up, no one payed any attention to his trunk.

    That suit is phenomenal. It’s too bad that it never got an MG or NG 1/100 release. Great episode guys as always. I have to say though that I do miss the tutorials and such from the earlier episodes.

  197. Thanks for a great video!

  198. Any news on new MG beside the Turn X and the online exclusives?
    Gr8 episode btw guys
    Keep up the good work 🙂

  199. So they released the crossbone maoh, any date on fenice rinascita?

  200. Love your show. Because of you guy’s my gunpla skills have greatly improved.

  201. nice episode, love the robot damashi mechas, but they are so expensive! Ryan, i think its time you build some big stuff again. hugs from argentina

  202. nice episode as always guys, please review the crossbone maoh, wish they release a hg crossbone full cloth, that would be nice than the MG which is loose sometimes

  203. wow….sd full armor

  204. Nice episode! Super excited for rg exia!!

  205. nice episode , the macross robots always look a bit odd to me in their gerwalk mode , is it a robot , is it a plane no its a gerwalk ?! that kyshatriya looks awesome and im looking forward to the HG repaired version as atm I only have the SD kit (which is still nice)I have just ordered a few damashi models from the new sale on HLJ to see what they are like in the flesh :)I hadn’t been tempted by the 7/11 kits upto now , but I have just seen the unicorn destroy mode ver 7/11 and im loving the look of it . Keep up the good work at keeping us entertained and informed , and my wallet empty.

  206. Hey, great show as always guys. What do you think of the hguc kshatriya repaired as compared to the regular, with respects to detail and price?

  207. Pretty excited for the new stuff and announcements for the Shizuoka Hobby Show.

  208. hey guys great episode, was waiting all sunday for it. can’t wait to see the rg exia. hope i win the reborn gundam

  209. Another cool episode! As I noticed from the gundamguys blog, there will be a 7/11 color version of the HG Unicorn Gundam. Since you guys are living in Japan, is it possible for you guys to grab one and film in on the show. Thanks

  210. nice episode like always … are we going to get as prices to the random giveaway the RG\MG kit that you get as samples before the official releases? Thanks 🙂

  211. I like how the YF-19 transforms

  212. Ah, long, finicky stickers. The best part of any model kit.

  213. Please please please build the metal gear ray!

  214. Hey Ryan and Syd isthere any news about Wing Gundam Fenice Rinascita? It probably the first transformable unit in Gundam Build Fighters

    More Power to your show

  215. Hey Ryan and Syd nice episode as always guys,is there any news about Wing Gundam Fenice Rinascita?I like how the YF-19 transforms. Can’t wait to see the next episode for the full transformation of the YF-19.The Japanese don’t know the greatness of slurpees it’s like a must for every 7/11.i Can’t wait for the video on the RG Exia. keep up the good work guys

  216. Hi Syd and Ryan! Great episode as always. Got have a question for Syd. I’m planing to do an extra finish/candy coat and I’ve looking at episode 18 as a guide. I’ve noticed that the 1st piece of the kit(1/144 HGUC MSN-06S Sinanju) you’ve used prior to spraying it with silver leaf is transparent. Does that means I have to strip away the default paint on the runners before I spray the silver on? If so, any recommendations on paint stripping? Thx in advance! :3

  217. Wow robot damashii kshatriya!

  218. Just wondering, which would have better resale value, an unopened robot damashii or an unopened MG kit of the same model?

  219. Do you think that Bandai will do a MG Kshatriya. And the fact that you are giving away gundams is awesome, and a great way to get more people involved in building gundams.

  220. Hey guys ! Good episode, especially when my comment have been read out ! =D Thanks for listing out all the “Ding Dong 7-11” kits. Another question, besides collaborating with 7-11, did bandai release any kits with other brands ?

  221. man was hoping I would have won your 7 11 gundam , awesome episode and have you seen the 7 11 RX-0 unicorn in destroy mode yet and Syd will you be picking it up and showing it on the show?

  222. i will win those kits that will pierce the heavens.

  223. hey there guys! good episode 😀 love the kshatriya! have you seen suisei no gargantia? i was wondering if u think they will make model kits of the robots in that mechs series :O ?

  224. Oh my God, a Valvrave 😀

  225. would love a valvrave n would also love if syd build another valvrave kit on hobbylinktv lets try my luck if i could win one:)

  226. Metal Gear Ray and the one from Zone of Enders(?) (Jehuty I think?)

    Can you guys just (even briefly) have those built and show the comparison? I’ve always liked the mechas from those games I remember during the PS2 days.

  227. very awesome show guys, keep up the good work!

  228. Syd, you mention dojo a couple of times throughout the series, what kind of martial art do you practice?

    Also, did the Gundam Fix Figuration line end?

  229. the rd kshatriya looks so awesome, how i wish bandai would release the MG counterpart already, i mean with all this unicorn kits flying off the shelves im sure the kshatriya would become a big hit even if the price would be the same as the sazabi.

  230. nice show guys, can’t wait for rg exia 😉

  231. Is there a chance you guys (Syd & Ryan) can cover just a tiny bit of you Gunpla TV time just for Toy Tengoku Fans out there? Just show us Figure updates that you guys usually do in Gunpla TV.

  232. I would love to finish modding that Reborns Gundam for you Syd! Another great episode guys.

  233. Living in the UK, I have no idea what these ‘slurpies’ are, but I’m definitely up for oden!

  234. Hi Syd and Ryan!

    I wanted to ask, what with all of these amazing new kits that have come out, what your favorite ‘old’ kits are? Bandai has gotten pretty amazing at designing these, but there are some of the oldies that stick out pretty well even among them.

    Can’t wait to watch the next episode!

    -Star Shatterer

  235. Great episode as always, Ryan please finish the Falcon!!!!

  236. I’m not a big exia fan either, but the rg exia is growing on me the more I see it. It’s going up the ranks of next rg I build following the zeta and the mkII, both of which I’d recommend. Think I’m gonna pass on the z’gok though… it’s not my cup of tea. Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next episode.

  237. Great show as always, if the kashatriya is expensive imagine a mg version, if it were only real lol.

  238. hey guys great episode you amazing can you please tell me which gundams you prefer and stuff and would mind on getting the rebrons gundam and the other one but im just trying to decide which one ok please tell me what you guys prefer

  239. EXIA, EXIA, EXIA! Lol.

    Love the YF-19, can hardly believe how well balanced it is.
    More modelling please.

  240. HLJ FOR LIFE!

  241. man i wish i was one of these lucky winners that got something

  242. The kshatriya is a beast. great figure, wish i had the space to display it with all the funnels out.

  243. Gundam cross bone moah looks great. Hope to get my hands on one. Great episode really helpful. You guys are great. The giveaway this time is even cooler than last time. Wish I could when them.

  244. Would like to see the YF-19 size comparison with a Perfect Grade Gundam. Since both are the same scale, I am curious to see how small a is a valkyrie compared to a Gundam.

  245. Great show guys. Just need to say that I wish American 7-11s sold LE Gundam kits. Now come on valvrave, come one valvrave, come on valvrave.

  246. Great show and keep up the good work guys. Just two questions. Does Bandai have news on the release of the 1/144 scale Gundam Fenice Rinascita? Sid, did you used to live in Canada?

  247. As always a great episode, Can’t wait to order my Psycho Zaku II

    Keep on Keeping on.

  248. Rock Solid – Thats what she said! 😀

  249. Great episode guys, that kshatryia looks awesome, makes me wonder if bandai is planning on an mg version again. Keep up the good work!

  250. I wish they would make more Hase macross kits rather than toys preferably a gerwalker.

  251. Thanks for the episode.

    By the way, oden is yummy you just have to give it a chance, natto is cool too.

  252. Sweet Kotobukiya has been reading my wishlist, first Ghost in the Shell & FMP kits, and now more Metal Gear, hope to see more Koto kits showcased here.

  253. Really look forward to Bandai “hopefully” making RG Sazabi and Sinanju. I appreciate your efforts to inform and encourage the Gunpla community. Keep up the great work!

  254. What is the best food in Japan?

  255. Entering the contest 😀

  256. Can’t wait to see what the RG Exia looks like, and not in promo pics. I wish though, that Ban Dai would release a TV version of Wing Zero in MG form, they did a great job on the Proto, and it holds up well, but I want the TV version.

  257. Valvrave was a great show. The ending made me a little bit sad though.

  258. great show once again.

  259. i love watching you guys.if i didnt have a mortgage and kids i wood be penny less from buying all the gundams….
    thank you for the show

  260. I’m not going to lie I’m new to gunpla.TV
    I just found out about you guys when I was looking for some info on the MG Sazabi ver ka.but from what ive seen from that episode and other you guys are pretty awesome on giving information of upcoming and brand new gunplas.
    keep it up guys for I’m waiting on your review on the MG Turn x.

  261. great episode guys, keep the good work up

  262. Yo that valvrave looks sick!

  263. The gundam unicorn is sick. cant wait to order it!!

  264. Valrave! Please pick me! pick me!

  265. Hey Sid! I’m a beginner gunpla builder with about 3 kits under my belt. I want to know something that wasn’t explained in your panel wash tutorial back in the early 20 episodes of Hobby Link. When working with enamel to panel wash is there any form of prep work? Also if the prep work if there is any isn’t done or done incorrectly how would it affect the model? Another Great episode and Thanks again!

  266. Great episode guys ! Peace sign ~LOL Can’t wait for that Neo Zeong (:

  267. one day i will grow up and become a gundam.

  268. RNGesus, please pick me! With the announcement of the HG Amazing Exia and Fenice Rinascita, do you think Bandai has any plans for releasing some more MG for build fighters? I really hope they make an MG Exia Dark Matter and Gundam X Maoh.

  269. I still want that gundam!! gundammit

  270. Great episode guys. That SD Sengoku Astray will look awesome next to my SD Zhang Fei. Love to the SD.
    How soon until the RG Exia?

  271. just like the look of RD Kshatriya, it look awesome. Hope that Bandai will try to make it on MG. Really a big fan of MG compare to HG and PG version.

  272. wow valrave! hope that will be the lucky person to win this . Pick me

  273. I don’t know what to say…I want to win! Haha!

  274. Question for Syd and Ryan: how can a modeller gain sponsorship from HLJ?

  275. I can wait for the exia RG I am excited!

  276. Great work, look forward to the RG Exia Vid

  277. Loved your episodes. I am going to tokyo in May. Any nice place to buy gundam kits other than akihibara or odaiba?

  278. Wish I knew about the 7-11 when I was in Tokyo in February! Aww well, Next time! I am liking the Kshatriya though. Might have to pick up the HG.

  279. If I could send you a Slurpee right now Syd, I would. But since I can’t, I shall drink one in your honour tonight. hahaha!

  280. Great episode. Just hope there will be any model kit for Captain Earth~

  281. Just Passing By…

  282. WOO RG Exia!

  283. The Kshatriya looks nice

  284. Hey guys another great ep. Very kind of you gus to open the kshatriya and show us how awesome it is!!! So with the Seven 11 Gunpla’s are they around all the time or are they like seasonal run kinda thing?? Also what do you guys think in terms of GBF season 2?? (if you haven;t touched this topic yet) And finally, the Exia special ep, EXCELLENT!!! watching it makes me wanna build one straight away!! and Thanks for the give away prizes, hope its me this time !!!

  285. VF-19 made perfect sense to me. They were known as Varitech Fighters, weren’t they?

  286. Thanks for the infos about 7/11.
    In tokyo during may, will try my luck there 😉

  287. That Kshatriya looks really nice. It’s one of my favourite mobile suits. It would be great to see Bandai make Kshatriya in 1/100 scale. Even though that would be really expencive kit.

  288. Let me win! 🙂

  289. Still really want to get my hands on the Neo Zhong.

  290. The Kshatria looks really cool, though I still don’t think it beats the satisfaction of having built a model kit yourself. Would make a good shelf decoration though.

  291. Hey Guys, Really nice model kits presented. Especially the Metal Gear Ray. I wasn’t aware there were such high quality kits pertaining to the Metal Gear franchise.

  292. The Kshatria is really nice. Where is it from?

  293. Kool.

  294. Another great eps! Awesome YF19 and the Kshatriya. Hoping to win the next giveaway since I’m a big Valvrave fan! Keep it up

  295. Great show guys! Do you know if HLJ will be releasing the Green Psychoframe Armed Armor DE with Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Bande Dessiné volume 12, like with the Red Psychoframe version w/ volume 8??

  296. Oldtype reporting in. Awesome giveaway! It would be an honor to have a kit that has been featured on the show. Loving that YF-19, I only wish I could afford it 🙁

  297. I do admire you kindness in giving away free models. I would love to win at least one in my life. I really do enjoy Gunpla building. I was introduced to it when I was very young and till now still love it. After all Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.

  298. wow I really hope bandai’s gonna make the MG Kshatriya :v

  299. Hey guys thanks for the Ray preview, my question is are they coming out with a GN arms for the RG Exia or is the HG one compatible with it?

  300. That HG Unicorn box is HUGE!!!

  301. so want that macross kit but the price tag is just discouraging…

  302. Long time fan, and I have to say I love your show. Wish I knew about it a lot sooner, hope too win that reborn gundam. 🙂

  303. Fantastic episode guys and Rg Exia gundam finally came out!

  304. hello guys !! i now is too early to especulate but will be great that
    the new rg exia came with a new variant like rg exia repair II in he future like the rg freedom and rg strike freedom does lately ,also won’t be great that rg exia or any other rg kits could be compatibles with the new hg kits because i m really specting hgbf amazing exia to make a kit bash with the rg what do you thing?

  305. I would love to win one of the models. I’m just getting into Gunpla and have a very empty display shelf at the moment. I can’t think of a better kit to put up for inspiration than one built by you guys!

  306. When is mg banshee norn coming out ?

  307. Looking forward to rg exia

  308. The 147th ‘instalment’ was amazing…
    …that’s what she said. 🙂

  309. I hope you show a built hg turn A and does it come with a cow? keep up the great job guys and thanks for the cool giveaways!

  310. I hope to see that special episode on the NEO ZEONG soon… great show as always.

  311. The RG Exia looks great but im really curious to see what RG they’ll make after the RGF Z’Gok

  312. They should have a series where all the characters from different gundam serieses come together and have a blood bath. #jesusyamato

  313. Real Grade or Perfect Grade Sinanju would be a nice anouncement at the hobby show…

  314. oh by the heavens pick me Mr random number generator saaaaaan

  315. Such a great episode guys , I really enjoyed the Damashii Kshatriya and the Metal Gear Ray , I really look forward to see the Battroid mode of the YF-19 , it is my favourite mech from the Macross franchise 🙂

  316. Man o man, the Kshatriya looks sooooooooo good! I wish we could get a master grade of her so bad!

  317. Azrel said on May 1, 2014

    Great videos, makes me wish I had these much kits to build.

  331. nice show guys, looking forward for the next episode ^_^

  332. Hey Syd and Ryan, i notice that a lot of HMM Zoids kits aren’t sold anymore(they were once there but maybe taken down) from HLJ, why? And are there any news of HMM zoids kits coming out soon? Keep uploading more episodes, they are Awesome!!

  333. I love to the review of the new release RG gundam exia

  334. Hi guys awesome show as always. Syd give us your thoughts on the recent poll Bandai made on the next RG. Based on the results its gonna be the Virtue from the 00 series. In your opinion what do you think Bandai will do with that? its 2 mobile suits in 1 not to mention incorporating an inner frame on an already small scale.

  335. Awesome episode and I can’t wait to see the rg exia because its my favorite gundaam of all time

  336. i wish some day i could have kshatriya as part of my gundam collections

  337. hi there thanks for yet another good episode of television gumpla question I was thinking about who is paying for all models you makes in gumpla TV and continued in the same vein as yours
