  1. That Astray Blue Frame though! Awesome episode!! 😀

  2. You are finally back!!!!

  3. That Astray Blue Frame though! Awesome episode! 😀

  4. Mg strike!

  5. So…Gundam beam sword on Dark Vader?…Just saying.

  6. Happy 2015

  7. great episode!

  8. Man that blue frame my friend built at a meet and build a month ago. Those blades are nice looking up close!! Can’t wait to see what 2015 brings.

  9. Man, both of those Strike MGs look awesome. Strike Noir is still my favorite though.

    To Sid and Ryan;

    1. Do you guys think that a RG unicorn/Sinanju would be possible for Bandai to do?
    2. Even if it is possible, do you think they would release it?

  10. SIEG ZEON

  11. loving the store troopers

  12. The PG unicorn looks great!
    Can’t wait for mine to arrive
    Keep up the good work

  13. Welcome back and happy 2015!
    If the Dragoon stand was included with the MG Blue Frame D, I would have already picked up the kit. Other than that, the Red Frame stands supreme.

  14. That MG Strike is absolutely beautiful and would be perfect for my upcoming birthday 😉

  15. what happen to the red blade liger – lion ver?

  16. Glad you guys are back~ I lobe seeing the new kits built every week

  17. LED Gundam Unicorn as Christmas Tree =D

  18. you’re back!!

  19. the blue astray d looks hectic! hav to save up and buy it

  20. I am in love with that Storm Trooper. I’m excited for the kits coming out this year. That MKIII is on my list. Great show as always guys, whoever wins that painted build by Syd will be a happy camper. (fingers crossed)

  21. Question for sid. Just built my unicorn and was wondering about panel lining. Should black or gray be used?

    • I know you’re asking Syd, but in case he doesn’t get to it:

      It depends on the color of the panel in question and the effect you want to achieve. For white/off-white/beige/etc. panels, most people tend to use some shade of gray; it accentuates the panel line and breaks up the panel without contrasting too sharply against the light backdrop. Black is usually only used if you want to get that high-contrast look.

      On darker panels, you obviously need darker panels to effectively show the panel lines, so black is used for those.

      But that, of course, is excluding the entire color spectrum one can use. Some people use similar colors for panel lining as the panels in question (ie dark green panel lining on green armor, dark red on pink armor, etc.). Others have used red/blue on white to great effect.

      For the Unicorn, panel lining the whites in blue would give it a cool effect (cool as in temperature) in Unicorn Mode. Some of the artwork for the novels looked like this, I believe. Doing it in red would mirror the psycho frame. Grays and blacks would also work just fine, as they’re the standard go-to for this sort of thing. It’s really up to you. Hope that helps.

    • Blackkkkk 🙂

  22. Hurray! good to have you guys back. I still cant decide if I like the strike rouge colour scheme…

  23. happy new year guys, how were your holidays? ?

  24. wow the Blue Frame looks so sick, i want it sooooo bad

  25. It’s going to be a great year for Gunpla and Star Wars! Oh, GIVE ME STRIKE! I love the Strike Gundams in all of their variations. Great episode as always guys! I wish you both well for the New Year, and welcome back!

  26. Great episode as always. Loved seeing Ryan nerd out about Star Wars.

  27. Welcome back guys! Happy new year 🙂

  28. MG Perfect Strike! The sword pack runners are a dead givaway. 🙂

  29. Love you guys 😀

  30. Happy New Years guys!

  31. Good to see this back, I miss watching this.

  32. That was a great video the blue frame looked cool

  33. Happy new year! Maybe this year I’ll win something!

  34. i require Geara zulu Master Grade :3 com on bandai dont let me down

  35. looking foreword to the new wing zero and would love to get the mg strike. 😀

  36. You guys are awesome. I hope i win one of the strikes. Either way i love you guys.

  37. I’m loving the Astray D ;). I think its overall look is even cooler than the Red Frame and first Blue Frame. Those Strike MGs going to the lucky winner (me pls) look great too.

    • The blue frames are cool, for me it’s the color variance of the blue frames that make me swoon. The Orange, white and blue make for a better look than red, black and white. Still I’d like to see Bandai ignore the Seed line this year and focus on anything else – grunt suits from Unicorn, Wing and OO would make me happy as a lark.

    • I like Red astray better because it has TWO samurai swords!! Samurai swords…. WOW! 🙂

  38. Kicking the new year off with an Amazing start! Amazing Red Warrior! Was a little weary of PG Unicorn, but after seeing Syd’s build and other post on the r/gunpla subreddit. I will most likely be getting one when they restock in March.
    Also hoping I can win that “Special” handjob from Syd! 😛

  39. The Blue Frame D is a little too busy but I do love all the gimmicks it has. I hope I win the giveaway though. I already have a Strike Rouge so I’ll probably give it to a friend who would really like it!

  40. Unicorn is a lot bigger than I thought…

  41. I am strikingly happy at the striking number of strikes you guys are giving out this week!

  42. Still very excited for the PG Unicorn.

    Blue frame is nice, I’d still like to see an updated MG Gold Frame.

  43. I was stoked when I received my PG Unicorn. It’s built now and I have to say it was really fun building it. I love the amount of work Bandai put into this. It’s now standing next to my PG Strike Freedom and they both make for a really snazzy display. All that’s left is to wait for my pre-order of the Full Armor Extension kit and then it’ll truly be a door stopper!

  44. That Wing Gundam Zero Honoo is gorgeous! It hasn’t shown up on Build Fighters Try yet, but I can’t wait! That’s going to look amazing on my shelf.

    You wanted comments on Star Wars and the Peter Jackson Tolkien movies. I quite enjoyed the LOtR movies, but I couldn’t get halfway through the first Hobbit film. The book was a childhood favorite and I just felt that instead of watching a lackluster adaptation with extra junk added (Legolas …) I could just read the book for the millionth time.
    As for Star Wars, I’m on board with everything I’ve seen and heard. The new Storm Troopers look great, the new animated series is quite good for what it is, and the fact that the extended universe stuff was retconned doesn’t bother me at all. It just means that the new stuff that will come out has more importance to the movie and more Star Wars is never bad.

    Phew! Sorry for the long-winded comment. Anyway, Happy New Year Syd and Ryan! Glad to have things are back to normal and can’t wait for another great episode.

  45. another great show. hope this time I can gets a MG XD

  46. Good job on the Stormtropper. I should get mine shipped. 🙂

  47. Welcome back..!!!! How i missed watching every week. Ayway goodjob with the pg unicorn.
    Omygosh 2 strikes. Winning any of the 2 is going to be a godsend. *breathes heavily*

  48. finally back! happy new year!

  49. I liked most of this episode. I’m not much for Star Wars stuff, so that was a little bit of a lull in the discussion for me – but I’m sure those kits and figures sell well, so I respect the marketing effort.

  50. When I was at the movies watching battle of the five armies. My friends and i were laughing and we almost got kicked out for laughing too much because how stupid the movie was

  51. I like the MG Aile Strike but I don’t want to mess up the paint job. So PLEASE the strike rouge, its pink I know but who cares?!….its still AWESOME!!!!

  52. awesome episode as always and also i would love to have the free mg 🙂

  53. I want all the kits!!!!

  54. Everything from Build Fighters Honoo looks great. Here’s hoping that Bandai releases more from that series (looking at you Double X Stream and God Gundam Kiwami)

  55. I just pre-orderd the gundam wing zero honoo… so fricken excited for that gunpla

  56. Hlj nummmber one baby!

  57. im still wating for my RG shining and god gundam to come out

  58. I’m loving the way the new G reconquista kits look.

  59. I WONDER IF THERE ARE GOING TO RELEASE THE PG UNICORN GREEN FRAME OR GREEN LED .

    • That is what I want, the candy cane unicorn doesn’t really move me but that green psycho-frame do like.

    • Probably Yes to both and probably a Banshee variant. That is unless the sales of the Unicorn are terrible.

    • I want to see an opaque frame like deactivated unicorn but then the led’s can give the color with color variable LEDs. That would be amazing but the cost 😡

  60. am i the only one who thinks Aile strike sounds sort of funny? Like I think of “Ale” and …someone attacking you with it… or someone attacking your ale.

  61. Hey Syd how are you enjoying the NHL season so far? And who are you guys rooting for in the NFL?

  62. I LOVE!! The new amazing red warrior. I want one so bad. I love the new season of GBF Try. The PG Unicorn looks AMAZING. I can’t wait to get mine.

  63. Great start to 2015 with this months giveaway. I’m really looking forward to the RE/100 Gundam mkiii and the Dijeh.

  64. I need to get all the Star Wars. Do they have the holiday special Chewbaca family set
    yet?

  65. Great episode as usual!

  66. Both of those Strikes look good. I am not sure if I will pick up the Blue Frame. A couple questions on painting as I am just starting out. Do you find it is better to paint on or off the runner and do you prefer to use a spray gun or spray can? Thanks.

    • 1.) Painting on the runner simplifies matters, but you’ll be left with ugly unpainted nubs when you snip the part off the runners. Undergating mitigates (sometimes eliminates) this problem, but undergating isn’t very often used. That’s what Syd was trying to show off with his painted Unicorn inner frame; the feet and legs, which weren’t undergated, had ugly bare plastic showing, whereas the joints were undergated and thus that same bare plastic doesn’t show on the finished build. If your kit is undergated, by all means, go for it. Otherwise, off the runner is often your go-to route. (Besides, if you’re doing panel lining and hand-painting specific parts on HG kits and the like, you’ll have to do so off the runner away.)

      2.) Spray guns offer better control, more even coating, and better bang for your buck in the long term. They are, however, a much more expensive initial investment. ($100+ for a spray gun/booth/pump/etc. versus $5 for a spray can.)

  67. I hope you all had a wonderful new year! I wonder what gunpla the RE 1/100 would release this year!

  68. MG Strike! Also dat Unicorn. So sexy

  69. Hello people

  70. Awesome episode as always Syd and Ryan. You guys should talk about more nerdy things in the videos. The talking about the Hobbit was quite entertaining. I have a long haul a head of me because I only got into Gunpla a about a half year ago and I got a lot of kits for Christmas. I have a lot of building to do and might post the results.

  71. Your unicorn gundam looks amazing. I wish I was that good at painting and detailing my gunpla.

  72. I hate Gundam Seed.
    I love Gunpla.

  73. Let’s hope for a great 2015 for gunpla!

    • foooyoo men! i will be grate full if i get the mg aile strike gundam build by professional gundam modelers like you syd for my second gundam collection hehehe.

  74. Glad you guys are back.. Got the PG Unicorn and the LED Set from you guys. Awesome packaging… Done professionally. Looking forward to my next purchase with you guys. Lets hope i get something i didn’t buy ^_^.

  75. I’m glad GunPla TV is back! We’ll see some great builds and releases this year 😀

  76. Happy New Year! Can’t wait to see the result of Syd’s PG.

  77. I have a 200 dollar gift card that vibrates every time I see that PG Unicorn.

  78. And now I do need to get that MG Kit… I was worried about all the fin but I think the swords are better.

  79. Happy new year guys!

  80. 1/100 MG Gundam Astray Blue Frame D, is one kit i definitely wanna buy now after seeing it with the duel sword set up, great video guys, and yes the hobbit movies could use some trimming, Also when did dragons not become enough of a threat to carry a movie.

  81. I love this episode since it featured Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper! 🙂

    looking forward to the next episodes… OH! AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU TOO!

  82. Nice video guys good to have you back and I got the PG unicorn in its box sitting in the corner staring me down, saying (JUST BUILD ME ALLREADY)

  83. Great job on the Unicorn. And Happy New Year!

  85. Lol i already have the ootri pls dont send me another one of i win
    >.<

    On the topic of seed/destiny im curious on what your thoughts are. Despite the series not being like by many (even myself to a degree) im just in love with the gundam designs in the show(destiny gundam being my favorite) Perhaps because there are so many gundams in the series to choose from.

  86. me! blog 163 keep up the sweet gundams!

    Btw I’m going to get my own MG Banshee norm soon
    good episode and i hope there’ll be more normal release MGs this year rather than those p-bandai bull 🙂

  158. Thought Syd had painted the Unicorn red and black at first glance :’D
    Happy new year and here’s to a twin giveaway of twins~

  159. wow strike gundam I want that

  160. Nice! strike gundam I want that

  161. You sold me on the blue frame…just love that weapons pack !

  162. Hope you guys had a great new years and a great year to come. I would love to get either of those. Keep at it Cid and Ryan. Cid i cant wait to see the Finished baby of yours.

  163. Nice to see you guys back. Hope to see more awesome reviews on 2015

  164. Strike Gundam !!!……..

  165. First vid, of the new yr. 🙂

  166. Great discussion guys!

  167. That PG Unicorn de-amroured…looking fierce by itself!!

  168. I loved how the MG Gundam Astray Blue Frame D looked from the preview pictures but after seeing a video on it I am going to have to buy it!

  169. Strike Gundam!

    I wonder if the PG unicorn can use a milky grey psycho frame with either red, green, or no LED but still looks good

    • I asked a similar thing prior to its release. Molding the psycho frame in colorless clear, with different LED sets released in different colors to achieve the pink/green/gold/blue effects might not have been a bad idea…

  170. That blue frame is looking dope

  171. Aile strike for me. And strike rouge for my wife… And we lived happily ever after…

  172. just built the blue frame it looks amazing with the blades put together.

  173. Happy New Year Guys! 🙂 red warrior to start the year. love GBFT model kits.

  174. They should already release the MG Red Dragon.

  175. That strike though… help a guy out… I’m broke and can’t buy it!

  176. I love that PG Unicorn so much!!

  177. I miss u guys…. and finally u back…. that PG unicorn looks awesome

  178. Welcome back! Nice start for 2015!

  179. Ohh! 2 MG’s to give away… what a nice start to the year!

  180. Yea baby!! PG Sinanju!!
    ooooooooooooooooooooooo

  181. So glad you guys are back!
    I don’t mind all the new adaptations of movies. If they suck, they suck, and there’s no use getting bent out of shape over it. I can always hold onto that original, or whatever version I still love.
    That stormtrooper kit will make for some awesome crazy custom builds (and the internet will yell at you for killing their childhood).
    PG Unicorn was an awesome build (my first PG). The main rifle runner on mine had a lot of molding issues on the edges of the parts. Not a difficult fix. It looks sooo good up on the shelf, and seeing it light up is a total joy.
    Happy New Year guys! Looking forward to Gunpla TV’s 2015 season!

  182. mygundamguy

  183. Hey Ryan and Syd hope you guys had a great time over the break.

  184. Now we just wait for the PG Unicorn Banshee

  185. Yey!You are back! I like it!

  186. Nice review on the Astray

  187. Have been waiting for you to finish build MBF-P03D Gundam Astray Blue Frame D. Happy New Year.

  188. Astray Blue Frame D… Perfect!

  189. For some reason I’m just not that excited for any of the Star Wars models. I love the first three movies but I am just not amazed by the stuff model wise. I guess I’m just happy sticking to robots/mechs.

  190. I would die to get that surprise

  191. Welcome back guys and happy new year.
    First of all, I thank you for your awesome episodes. I just started this hobby last December of 2014 and this addiction is all thanks to you guys. GyaGyaGya
    With the new GBFT kits, I’ll be a happy newbie this year.
    And with all those new Star Wars Kits, the hype is ON! It’s ON!
    May the Force be with us ALL!

    PS: I hope they won’t ruin my childhood with the new movies.

  192. Hey Guys, Nice to see you back for 2015. You are completely correct the 3rd Hobbit was lame, they could have squeezed that book into 2 movies and it would have been long but real good. Ryan be careful about mentioning the Falcon going to start a “finish the Falcon” rant again from everyone, haha. Love to grab a Seed Kit.

  193. 2015 is going to be a lot of red. MG Build Burning, MG Wing Hoono, RG Red Warrior would be interesting. Most interested in the RE line, hoping to see some Mobile Armors and Ships.

  194. Perfection.

  195. Happy New Year!!!!!

  196. 2015 is looking like a great year for kits, really looking forward to the MG Double X

  197. I just built my first gundam!!! But IDD like to see a costom painted one by syd. That way I have an idea what a costom painted gudam should look like.

  198. Always a pleasure and informative watching gunpla tv. Can’t believe you’re giving away 2 of my favourite MG! Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know that because of your show and my growing interest of gundams (built my first kit in 2014 which was the hgbf build strike w/ plavsky wings), HLJ became my goto place to shop and browse! lol Also, me and my gf are very happy on being able to get our PG unicorn w/ LED from you guys shipped all the way in Vancouver BC in reasonable time and costs. After watching many reviews and WIP videos (esp Syd’s), we can’t wait to build it as it is one of the coolest kit.

    Anyways, happy new year guys and keep up the great work!

  199. great job guys. hope I win something soon.

  200. Great to see you guys again and hope you had an awesome. I want to know what would be your guys’ gunpla predictions for this year.

  201. 2015 Live performance from Darth and the Troops!!

    tickets sold out….

  202. I already ordered one from HLJ. Can’t wait to get my hands on PG Unicorn!

  203. This year should be a pretty exciting year in gunpla. I’m hoping for a few MGs from Reconguista, but just about anything could be fun to build. Keep up the great work and hope to see lots of videos this year.

  204. Niiiiice

  205. Really looking forward to hearing more about the upcoming Gunpla, specifically the MG Dark Matter Exia.

  206. Great episode as always! Looking forward to the new year

  207. Strike 1! Strike 2!.. Strikes out to me!!!
    Good to see you guys again! Yay!

  208. Is the armor parts on the PG Unicorn undergated too?

  209. Nice episode as always

  210. OMG! I want that 🙂 Lets try, maybe i am lucky 🙂

  211. @ryan and @syd
    Nice episode guys. Any ETA on the livestream for the RE Mark III build?

    And on the topic of the movies. 2015 will be a year of butchering childhood memories with all the great 90’s hits getting the remakes.

  212. Aile Strike RM was my first MG. I’m glad it was cause it was a solid kit with exceptional balance. Wouldn’t mind getting another one though. 🙂

  213. I like Bandai’s version of Stormtrooper more then Revoltech’s. Great episode as always Sid and Ryan. I hope I win a strike 🙂

  214. Thanks for the 1st episode of the year! always enjoying the show.

    Yay for Gundam Double X! Going to get one and put beside the X.

  215. This giveaway is … striking?

  216. OMG the Aile Strike ver. RM!! I only have the earlier version.. 🙁

  217. Syd, are you going to pick up the Bandai exclusive PG Full Armor for your Unicorn? Got mine on pre-order with Gentei

  218. That blue frame looks cool. I thought the blades were a little much at first until I seen that you can turn them in to two swords very clever

  219. Getting ready to order my Amazing Red Warrior. It’ll go next to a strike gundam mg *cough cough, hint hint* >_> yay gundams 😀

  220. May the force be with 2015!!! Welcome back Ryan n Syd!

  221. welcome back guys! Great stuff as usual , cannot wait till the next!

  222. great episode to start the year off. Btw those MG’s look tasty 😉

  223. AMAZING RED WARRIOR! Gundam build fighters tri is starting to suck away all my money! Great show guys! 😀

  224. Welcome back, needed my HLJ FIX. the Blue Frame Looks Amazing, and the amazing Red Warrior is Great, Go Gundam Build Fighters Try!!!!!!!!!!

  225. Happy new year Syd and Ryan. Any new year modeling revolutions? For me its simple, actually finish my projects ha ha ha.

  226. New Year of Gunpla. Excited to see what comes this year

  227. Hello Syd and Ryan!!!! thank you so much for the show of 2014, it was all fun episodes i watched. Especially on the “comment to win a gunpla”, i really appreciate it, i look forward to 2015 for all the fun show!!!! thank you^^

  228. Happy New Years and happy building in 2015! 😀

  229. Hey Syd and Ryan, great episode as always.
    I got a question for Syd:
    Is there any way to de-color a colored effect part? (like a Gouf 2.0 heat-sword)

    • The Gouf 2.0 heat sword is molded in clear orange, so the short answer is “No, unless you’re willing to lose the transparency.” The long answer:

      Since the effect isn’t achieved via metallic coating a la the Titanium Finish/Pearl Finish/etc. special edition kits, you can’t just strip it down to the bare plastic. The only way you can get rid of the effect is to paint over it.

      Alternatively, you can create a silicone mold of the part and recast it using clear resin. Problems with this method include, among other things, the recast part often being just a smidge smaller than the original (due to vulcanization effects during the casting process) which leads to fitment issues.

  230. nice episode!
    hand job from syd! LOL

  231. Great paint job on the PG unicorn kit and the blue astray looks sick

  232. i hope i win this one …

  233. I think you make a good point about all these movie sequels : why do they need to be so much over the top ?? Just give us what we like !

  234. awesome great to see you guys again, and hot damn wouldn’t mind that aile strike built by Syd

  235. Strike, Strike rouge, enough about Strike lets talk about Strike!
    Out of the PGs i’ve built and seen, the Strike is at the number one position. The Strike has trhe perfect design to become a PG, the suit itself has no attachments that hinder it in our gravity and the very open/exposed frame gives plenty of design room to add tons of visible detail and moving frame all over it.

  236. justice check~! freedom check~! strike, time to get u check~!

  237. Happy New Year! Been waiting for a while for an episode. Man oh man I sure want that Wing Zero Honoo!

  238. Finally back! Great show as always. The Astray looks great. I hope I might get one of those MGs!

  239. GUNDAM STRIKER!!!

  240. Oh man, so much to love about the Strike mobile suits and the Astray frames that were based on them. Just love how they arent as blocky as UC suits or lean like Exia, just the right amount of awesome for all your laser firing missile blasting needs!

  241. Thanks for keeping us covered!
    Love the Astray Blue Frame D i might get one

  242. im looking forward to those star wars kits!!! keep up the great work guys!
    hope to win a strike

  243. Happy New Year Hobbylink Japan! This year looks pretty awesome for Gunpla, looking forward to the RE/100 Mk-III, a lot of potential for custom work, keep up the great work, you guys got me and my brother into the hobby and continue to make it awesome, a big thank you from both of us 😀

  244. Howdy Syd and Ryan! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too. Astray Blue Frame D looks awesome especially with that custom action base with sword blitz effect parts. It’ll be next to my MG Strike Freedom, Nu verKa and HiNu verKa.

    And by the way, those two Strikes looks good on my shelf. Gimme that! ^_^

    #hobbylinktvrocks

  245. Can’t say how excited I am for 2015! The PG Unicorn, Star Wars kits and Astray really sets a decent benchmark for a year of building. 😀

    I’m starting to really envy you guys. You have the perfect job, being surrounded by great kits and great people. Law school will be the end of me, it seems. 🙁

  246. Happy new year to all of HLJ! It’s grat to see you back in action ^^

    Anyways, hope I win something this time…

  247. Hey happy new year guys!
    How did you celebrate your New Years?

  248. Loved the video guys. Great start of a new year!
    Can’t wait what you have in store for next!

    Also you haven’t STRIKED out yet.

  249. Yeah, Double Strike!
    Btw the left leg of the Trooper, the one on the plate, is backwards.

  250. Happy new-year guys, glad to see you back 🙂
    and double strike awesomeness !!

  251. need to pick up some new kits, im new to gunpla but am hooked. love the show, but makes me jeallous seeing all these awesome kits

  252. WOW!
    Nice decal on MG STRKE Sid.

  253. Very good episode. The PG Unicorn looks awesome. I haven’t done a PG yet. I have the PG Zaku II, but it is still unbuilt.

  254. Happy New Guys!

  255. The more I’ve seen of the Star Wars Trailer, the less excited I’ve become. The new trooper helmet design reminds me of Rorschach from Watchmen (the movie version at least). But the scene with the YT-1300 gives me the impression that it’s the camera moving around it rather than the 60+ year old freighter performing aerial acrobatics.

  256. Happy new year syd and ryan! Looking forward to new kits this year!

    Dat strike tho… X2

  257. I’m New here, and i must say this is Awesome, i Love the Blue Astray Gundam, and i’ll probably get that Storm Trooper

  258. The paint job on the Unicorn looks really good, now wishing I’d done the same thing, I’m not willing to pull that guy to pieces to paint it now.

  259. Can’t wait to start on my pg unicorn!

  260. That discussion on movies that you had was quite interesting, would be cool to do something like that more often.

  261. May the force be with us this 2015 🙂

  262. i wonder what’s the extra in the Strike RM box

  263. A Happy New Year guys! Hope you guys had a relaxing break.
    can’t wait to see what Bandai gonna bring out this year. Well keep up the great show guys!
    Cheers!!

  264. Syd and Ryan really need LotR plamo so they can talk about it more.

  265. Wow those r some nice kits. If I get the strike rogue I’d finally be able 2 do a custom paint job I’ve been wanting 2 do

  266. Strike!

    Love me some Seed kits!

  267. Those blade designs from the astray are so slick and awesome

  268. New Year! New MGs. I know what are the special things inside the box:)

  269. glad to have you guys back

  270. Happy new year HLJ, hope we have more awesome kits release this year.

  271. Happy new year guys! Hope this year full of awesome gunpla model and i really curious about bandai star wars kit…

  272. Happy New Years guys n welcome back hope that this year bandai will release more interesting kits!!!!!!

  273. I want that MG Strike!

  274. Great episode. Really looking forward to getting back into the Gundam building game this year.

  275. Strike that MG STRIKE..:D peace

  276. Love the show, so much to look forward to in 2015. Would be nice to win too 🙂

  277. I want to win cause I ordered my MG Aile Strike Ver. RM by an amercan online shop 4 month ago and it still haven’t arrive yet 🙁

  278. Let me win please 🙂

  279. 1. Hobbit movies – After seeing the first movie, I could see where PJ was going. So, I decided not to watch any of the movies after the first one.
    2. I would love to receive either of these 2 MG kits.

  280. Is it just me or has Bandai really shifted their focus more into the 1/144 scale range (especially with Build fighters going strong)? I’m an MG guy and I want more of these great kits I see in the HG/RG line to come to MG. I might just break down and start getting some 144s.

    • PS. The strike Rouge is my favorite *wink**wink*

    • Bandai’s always released more 1/144 kits than 1/100 kits simply because of the lesser complexity required in their engineering. Japanese consumers also tend to gravitate towards the smaller kits because of their generally more limited living spaces (or so that’s what I hear).

      Frankly, I’m still waiting on an MG Palace Athene. Chop chop, Bandai.

      • Oh believe me. I get why there re more 1/144 kits. That I get, but it just seems like there is such great possibility for these series to grow into the MG market as well. But, I guess I am just being greedy. I want all the kits to be in MG 1/100. Part of me feels guilty for really liking most of the bots from the Build fighters shows thus far, even some of the ones you only get to see for a few minutes.

  281. been waiting for the rg wing gundam zero custom! but still this episode was informative.

  282. Cant wait to see the unicorn lit up without the armour on.

    Would be awesome to win a kit from you guys, especially if it was painted up.

  283. Great to see Gunpla TV back guys

  284. Another great ep guys, good to see you back!

  285. That bare frame even looks cool on its own!

  286. glad to see you guys back! this is going to be a good year for gunpla. i cant wait to get my pg unicorn

  287. 2 strikes!! give me one (rouge) 🙂
    more power to gunplatv!!

  288. Great to have you guys back! Let have a awesome year!!!

  289. personally I have no qualms whatsoever about the cross guards on the lightsaber. take it from someone who watched the original series, IMO its something new that I will gladly welcome for the new movie.

  290. Great episode and so glad you guys are back.

  291. You are finally back… i miss u so much… aile stike hell yes…

  292. Mgs are my favorite

  293. First video of 2015! 🙂 and wow, a hand-made kit by Syd!

  294. welcome back guys! wish u have a happy new year!!!
    ps I really like to win a mg strike rm 🙂

  295. third strike and you’re out!!! hahaha…

  296. I love the pg unicorn. I was initially skeptical about getting it because I thought it would have been really difficult to build (first pg) but instead it was incredibly enjoyable from the first page of the manual to the last. Great build!

  297. Happy 2015 guys!
    Anyways i didn’t think the Hobbit was that bad. Seeing King Dain being a badass was pretty cool.

  298. Happy New Year! Look forward to hopefully building the RG Wing Zero and PG Unicorn in the near future! Great job again and keep the episodes coming!

  299. Nice to see you again guys. Happy 2015! 🙂

  300. Happy New Year Guys(probably won’t be New Year when you read this)! Hoping for that Strike Rouge!

  301. Signed up just so I could say this…
    I think the lower left leg of that storm trooper is on backwards.
    And also- MG Strike! Either one could fight my MG Wing Ver. Ka.

  302. i hope bandai releases the zaku tank in Mg scale. i saw pictures of it from the 2008 shizuoka hobby show

  303. NICE

  304. Happy New Year! So glad I got back into gunpla last year, and partly because of your shows. So thank you very much for that. And here’s to another awesome year of gunpla!

  305. Awesome! love to see more of what you’ll be doing with your PG unicorn after you do up your light.

  306. Great episode guys! Love that new Astray, can’t wait to get one of my own.

  307. enough talk about the hobbit and lets get to the gundam.

  308. “2015 looks like it’s going to be a bumper year” – Syd. I’m hoping 2014 wasn’t that great in comparison to the prior year and I’m hoping none of them are Seed kits, enough is enough Bandai.

  309. Man,the trooper looks AWESOME!

  310. I loved seeing the frame of the unicorn PG. I think that would be an epic pic…all the PGs Frame only!
    Red Astray Please.
    Will you guys be getting more DMK 01 optimus priimes in? I noticed in an episode you said you were getting more bumblebee.

  311. Good show as always Ryan and Syd, I love Gunpla TV and can’t wait to see more reviews by you two in 2015

  312. Best year 2015 so far.

  313. great reviews on the movies and on the kits.

  314. Hey syd! We have the same thoughts about the hobbit… anyways good 1st episode for 2015… 🙂 im claiming your gunpla anyway.. 🙂

  315. Happy New Year HLJ

  316. Welcome Back. Great Show.

  317. Welcome back syd and ry…

  318. Good Job guys! Keep those videos coming!

  319. I love Strike Gundam! Happy New Year guys!

  320. wow finally back online i love it
    happy new years 2015
    羊年行大运
    good luck on the goat year

  321. me like MG..gimme some

  322. Hey syd i love Strike Gundam please let me have one! Happy New Year!

  323. Surprises! Here I Come!

  324. Here’s hoping for the Aile Strike and quite honestly Syd, I’d have to disagree with you, 2014 was actually a crap year for MG’s, save for a lot of re-issues with extra parts, all we really got were the Gundam X, Turn X and Hi-Nu Ver Ka.

  325. Been itching for a Strike RM. Here’s to hoping!

  326. Happy new year guys, heres hoping the RNG gods smile on my comments this 2015

  327. i want a custom hand job from syd 😀

  328. That unicorn is awesome.

  329. Happy New Years guys. nice to see you all back on Gunpla TV. Hope this year will launch many sexy MGs like Tallgeese III and Burning Gundam. Frankly I kinda boring about kit from Build and G reco series, even though they get a ‘somewhat’ costumized wing zero in it but still bores me.

    I want some original kit from early series.

    tell that to Bandai would you? :p

    • The TG3 is already available as a P-Bandai online exclusive, which means only Japanese customers can buy them, which means you have to go through a middleman, which means sometimes significant markups. Yay for you.

  330. LETSSSSSS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  331. Happy New Year. The gunpla highlight of 2014 for me was the Build Burning Gundam. I think it raised the bar for HG line

  332. Awesome Episode. Can’t wait to see more about the Unicorn. Hope I win the Syd Hand Job.

  333. Strike me a Rouge please

  334. I don’t think there will be anything this year that can beat the PG Unicorn. I do hope we get MG G-Self though.

  335. Syd the Gundam Santa. How was your guys holidays? I will be happy with any of the 2 MG.

  336. I hope I win this time.

  337. What’s the surprise? WHAT’S THE SURPRISE!?

  338. awesome episode! looking forward to the LED lighting in the unicorn.keep up the good work

  339. Thanks for the strike XD

  340. This year I’m gonna step up my Gunpla game and build some MGs

  341. I can’t wait for the 2015 MG’s

  342. I really am taking a liking to those Stormtrooper kits!

  343. Welcome back guys! Good to see ya!

  344. I have faith in JJ Abrams. He is a mssive star wars fan, and a genius film maker.

    The PG unicorn is SOoooo amazing, i wish i manages to buy one. Any news on when it will be available again?

    Happy new years and welcome back guyz.

  345. Dear ladies and gentlemen,

    Nice to see you back in action! Got a lot of my “Syd Fix” the last month, but not my “Ryan Fix”, glad to get it finally! Thank you!

    As for the movies…., in my opinion CG nowadays is less expensive then in the “old days”, so they tend to go overboard with it. It used to be actors that carried the movies along with a great script and a good director, but now it’s CG…
    I don’t care as much for movies like that, I believe that “Less is More”. A great story line always beats CG, but hey, that’s me…

    I still haven’t finished building my PG Unicorn, got the legs, waist and torso done (all painted, thanks to you Syd, did different colors on the back of the knees, vents of the skirt armor and ball joints on the hips), but so far it was a pretty sweet build. Just have the feeling it is missing something that other PG’s got. Maybe it’s the pistons in the feet, legs and arm pits…? Or maybe I’m spoiled. LOL

    Sorry to bring this up, but you brought it up on yourself Ryan….
    In episode 103 you stated that the Falcon would be done before the new Star Wars episode… Think you can hold your promise?
    I’m looking forward in seeing that kit finished, as you did an excellent job thus far on it!

    A little question for you my dear Syd.
    Since when are you wearing a wedding ring? As I recall there was no ceremony involving a ring in Japan. Now you have one, you finally caved in? ROFL

    Anyways, great having you back. Will continue supporting HLJ in 2015!!!

    PS., if there is any chance the Mr. Number Generator picks me as a lucky winner, please contact Kethrenan on this blog. I would like to give the kit to him. He has seen a difficult year and I’d like to support him this way. Thanks

  346. What a way to start a new year and what a magnificent PG unicorn your building, wish i have those set of skills and time. 😛

  347. Welcome back guys! I’m can’t wait to see 2015 MG’s, i think i’m gonna buy the Double X as soon as it is released

  348. Nice! The Wing Gundam Zero Honoo looks awesome. I think I should start a collection of coloured wing Gundams, since I already have the Fenice Renascitta.

  349. Sweet episode guys!

    Welcome back and happy new year!

    We need moar MG’s!

  350. Yay, you’re back. Looking forward to the Wing Gundam Honoo which I preordered. Trying my new year luck on those 2 MGs.

  351. Sweet episode guys!

    Welcome back and happy new year!

    Bandai, please… we need moar MG’s!

  352. 2014 was a slow year of gunpla for me.. but one part of my new years resolution is more time for model kits! so lets start it off right and win an aile strike!! hahaha

  353. Nice one 🙂

  354. The storm troopers look really good, very excited for the boba fett kit to come out!

  355. LOL at the “handjob” comment

  356. 2014 was a great year, I look forward to a great 2015 full of HG, RG and MG.

    Plus the Aile RM frame is great. I saw some light blue in the Aile RM’s box, does it include the Sword and Launcher Striker packs?

    I’m looking forward to the RG 00 Raiser, which kit are you looking for this year?

  357. I love watching your show and hopefully I will be able to come to your store when I go to Japan when I get stationed there with the Air Force because I love everything about Gundam from Gundam 0079 to Gundam G no Reconguista

  358. man i built a unicorn myself but i didnt realize how sexy it was without the armour which is something you dont get to see when building

  359. happy new year, guys! i’m happy to see the show back and i hope the regular schedule is back too. i actually built my first kit from hlj a week or two ago! i was very excited to get it. i’m hoping that this new year is full of gunpla for me, but it looks like it’s going to be full of more car repairs instead.

  360. Welcome back guys.

  361. Awesome episode guys! The wing gundam hoono looks amazing. Can’t wait to buy that! The build fighters series is just awesome to me. Can’t wait for more kits.

  362. Loving all the new Star Wars stuff!

  363. Way to start 2015 with the Right foot.

  364. Awesome! 2015 here we come!

  365. i just built my own blue frame d, really cool kit and wondering who’s gonna get syd’s strike twins….

  366. this episode was great keep up the good work and happy new year

  367. Great to see you guys back. This episode was awesome. That Astray Blue Frame looks amazing.

  368. I suspect the model stormtroopers still have better aim than the real one.

  369. hey guys from Hlj do yall know when the PG gundam unicorn is going to restock ?

  370. Yuuma: “T-That’s-!”
    Fumina: “This can’t be happening!”
    Sekai: “It is happening!”

    Mirai: “JIGEN HAOH RYUU! SOTEN….GUREN-KEN!”

    ROCK AND ROLL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  371. got the last PG Unicorn from HLJ.
    But still waiting for the LED Set restock.

  372. Oooooh, I just got a Strike RM for Christmas, that Strike Rouge would complement it nicely! ;D

  373. Nice video as all was Guys NEED MG

  374. Nice Episode Guys ! now… (silence) Give me the Goodies !

    🙂

  375. I was excited about seeing the hobbit but now I’m worried… Good episode guys glad you’re back!

  376. For you, Syd, 2015 is a bad luck year. But for me, 2015 is supposed to be the year we get self-lacing shoes, hover boards, instant pizza and flying cars. I’m still waiting, science!

  377. I absolutely love the PG unicorn. Glad to see the bandai star wars series line up as well.

  378. hope I win a strike and also I have a question to syd. you know you sometimes use an eraser to take off panel lines when you mess up? I do the same thing but when I paint my kits then panel line them it takes off the paint too. any suggestions?

    • In case Syd doesn’t get to it:

      What you want to do is clear-coat your kit after painting. Apply a layer of gloss coating to your kit after you’ve painted it; this seals the painting in so that anything you do above the gloss coat won’t affect it. It also helps the panel lining more easily follow the channels of the panel lines.

      Once you’ve gotten panel lining down the way you want it, apply another clear coat. You can use either gloss (shiny) or flat (not shiny) coats, depending on what you want.

      Hope that helps.

  379. A PG unicorn in 5 hours, amazing. I couldn’t imagine building one in 5 days, let alone 5 hours.

  380. never said this before……i missed you boys!

  381. Dam I like the look of that blue frame

  382. hurray for seed series!

  383. Great as always guys!

    I’d LOVE to win one of those Strike suits.

    If I won, I’d buy whichever won I didn’t win and create a normal Strike Ootori and an Aile Strike Rouge!

    Better get both of those in stock just in case, boys. ;P

  384. I’m not really a fan of star wars, but I would like to get ahold of one of those trooper kits.

  385. Great episode.

    I just watched SEED so it’d be sweet to get some SEED MGs.

    Keep it up.

  386. Please give me the MG strike babies MR number generator!!!!! please!!!!!!!

  387. I really hope they eventually do a PG Exia, even though I kind of doubt they ever will.

  388. Happy new year guys!
    Sid I wonder which metallic color you’ve used for the PG Unicorn frame. It seems slightly darker than silver but not so “yellowish” as Gun Metal.

  389. OMG another MG

  390. Happy new year! Great episode! All those kits look totally on point!

  391. Happy New Year , and shall it be named the year of Star Wars. Here is a question, what Gundam kit would you guys do if you were in charge(worked at Bandai) of doing a Ver. Ka or 2.0/3.0? Great episode as always and hope to see more awesome eipsodes.

  392. Welcome back guys, happy new year =)The blue frame is very interesting, expecially whith the combined swords!

  393. I want to see you guys build the R2D2 when it comes out!!!!
    hope you guys keep this amazing show on for long time longer, you guys rock!

  394. Horay for gunpla

  395. Will they ever make a Mg ZZ gundam 2.0 or 3.0?

  396. Great episode guys as always. Hope you had a great holiday. I had PG fever myself and built my dream PG Wing Zero Custom. Hope I win that gundam!

  397. The Superior Defender Gundam Force is strong with this one.

  398. My guys are back! Loved the episode. Can’t wait for more, my friends.

  399. I can’t wait to see that Unicorn with all the LEDs in without the armor! It’s gonna look really cool! I just wish I had the money to get my own.
    (P.S. I LOVE the Strike Rouge.)

  400. Awesome Vid!!!

  401. Good to see new kits coming out so early this year. Excited to see more content!

  402. It’s great to have you guys back and what a way to start the new year the strike and the rouge hope I win either would be great

  403. What’s the surprise!

  404. Hi!How come you didn’t talk about the MG Dark Exia?It supposed to come late February. And am also waiting for the RG Raiser to be up for preorder!
    And lastly, please Random number generator, choose my number,lolz!

  405. I’m digging those posters in the background !

  406. Happy 2015 and welcome back! Looking forward to the new kit coming out this year! What about you guys? What kits are you guys looking to get your hands on this year?

  407. I really like this show and personally can not what for the new Wing Flame Gundam to build and customize,I am a huge fan of the seed and wing gundam eras. I would like to see a kit using those led’s in a different color set for the unicorn not a fan of the red.

  408. 4 THE WIN!

  409. Liking the look of the star wars kits , the AT-ST is going on my want list.

  410. Glad you guys are back!

  411. I WIN!!???

  412. that pg looks cool without any armour, almost worth leaving it like that

  413. Happy New Year!!!!!!!!! (`_´)ゞ

  414. 2 MGs is nice, When will the rg OO raiser come out?

  415. pink gundam is the manliest gundam

  416. Great episode and glad to see you guys back. The Unicorn looks great and hopefully i’ll be able to get my hands on one once HLJ gets them back in. I have a question about painting on the runners, how much flash/seam line issues did you run into? i paint and detail my frames since i feel they are not “complete” otherwise, and i sand lots of seam lines off when im cleaning the parts. I think that painting on the runner would make those flaws more pronounced, just looking for your opinion on that.

  417. Oh man, that Astray is looking gorgeous! Well, except for the weird orange (which I’ll probably paint over once I get my hand on the kit).

  418. hi syd thanks for the strike !

  419. wow 2 MGs ?? thanks syd !

  420. Great episode, have to agree with you on the movies, too much surface glitter and not enough substance. The colour combination on the blue frame is nice but with all those blades, seems a bit overkill to me and with them combined on the arms, it’ll have the same chance of shredding up it’s own backpack as it does enemies. PG unicorn looking awesome, can’t wait to see the LEDs fitted.

  421. love those spikys on the astray ! i think i’m gonna grab one from u guys oh and hope to get the strikes too 🙂

  422. Welcome back Syd & Ryan I hope you guys had a great time with family over the holiays.

    Star Wars is all about the money. If Lucas had thoughts to the contrary, the insane profits from merchandise made them fly away at hyperspeed to a galaxy far far away.

    But at least with Disney at the helm you have a shot at a decent film, that frankly Lucas does not currently have the talent to produce.

    Despite all those digs at Marvel, Avengers is today’s Star Wars. Most people aren’t going there to watch the CGI, the’re there to watch 60+ year old characters to tell their stories for the first time on the big screen. Hello infinity war, I have been waiting my life for you!

    Also, can’t wait for that PG Unicorn. I was terrified of painting it, but it looks like that inner frame won’t be as big a nightmare as I thought.

    Thanks again guys, look forward to the next episode!

  423. Bandai’s truly improving their plastic. I build a PokePla Pikachu a while back for fun, and while it had no undergating, the way the parts were connected the nubs turned out almost unnoticeable if cut right, it was an impressive feat.

  424. Awesome!

  425. Ahw, i liked The Hobbite: Battle of the Five Armies :/ But then again i have not read the books. Still, love what Peter Jackson did with the material 🙂

    Wing zero variation in Build Fighters Try! Realy want to see that baby in action! Hope it can live up to the Fenice.

    PS. Tell Bandai to build some more 1/100 Saviour gundams:D

  426. Welcome back guys!

    That Star Wars/Hobbit movie rant was a bit long though… but Syd and the Millennium Falcon loop…LOL!

    I’m kinda curious about that surprise with the MG Strike but I’ll probably never know. 🙁

  427. Even though I came here for the Gunpla I have to say that I love the Storm Trooper model. That thing was amazing. I have been a fan of Star Wars for a long time and even though I might not think of Star Wars kits when I think modeling if I had seen more like that I would definitely consider building a few.

  428. Wow! 2 MGs!

  429. Can’t wait to see what you do with the PG Unicorn.

  430. Happy New Year, Guys!!!!! x3

  431. Let me win the Aile Strike!!!

  432. I totally agree with syd about the effect of cg on movie making. great episode.

  433. *star wars theme song
    Luke i am ur father!

  434. Happy New Year and welcome back from the Holidays ^.^

  435. Going to buy a MG not sure which one to get

  436. I WANT THE AILE STRIKE GUNDAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMM!

  437. Those Star Wars models are quite cool, might consider picking them up in the future. Hoping for good year for MGs, maybe my long awaited Altron EW.

  438. Thanks for that look at the Star Wars Kits!

  439. come on! star wars! end of the year!

  440. Welcome Back HLJ Team, thank you for the points on the PG Unicorn and Looking forward to the new kit and reviews coming out this year! Wish to get my hands on that Aile strike. That is nicely done.. HAPPY 2015 to all gunpla fans.

  459. Happy New year guys, can’t wait for a new exciting year of gunpla!

  460. Last year was a great year! I can’t wait to see what’s coming next in 2015. Since it’s the beginning of the year what would you guys like to see come out? I would personally like to see more Build Fighters stuff in Master Grade form.

  463. Those star wars kit looks great, hopefully they release more 🙂

  464. Welcome back, Syd and Ryan! And happy new year to you both!

    My question for you is which gundam do you think will be receive the Ver. Ka treatment in 2015?

    Will Bandai ever consider doing an Astray Red Frame Ver. Ka in the near future?

    Regards,
    Gary

  465. That PG looks amazing !

  466. OH MAN OH MAN!! U GUYS ARE GREAT! LOVE THE VIDEOS!! AND YOU HAVE GREAT ADVICE AND GIVEAWAYS!! THANKS!!!

  467. The PG Unicorn is really awesome!!!

  468. Chipmunks are cute, I love chipmunks.

  469. Happy New Year and welcome back!

  470. Happ new year! TBH the pg unicorn still seems kinda meh.

  471. Win Strike Time!

  472. O.O the Ale Strike looks amazing! Hope I win! Also, great show guys! Keep it up!

  473. Wow! Want me one of those Strikes.

  474. I’m going to end up with a whole row of custom painted Stormtroopers, aren’t I? Oh well, there’s probably worse things I could be spending my money on. Like movie tickets 😛

  475. 163! It’s been a long time cumming! That PG Unicorn Frame looks awesome painted…….. *grabs part separator*

  476. I don’t mind some of dat hand job…err.. .hand paint job i mean.

    Good to see you guys back! Happy New Year!!

  477. Sign me up for the free MGs!

  478. For me, what peter jackson did with the fellowship of the ring (my favorite movie) earns him a lifetime pass. I didn’t really care for the hobbit series but he’ll always be the man to me. JJ Abrams does not have that honor, and if he screws up Star Wars I’ll go Darth maul on him. Ps love those strikes!

  479. So excited for 2015! Can’t wait to see what great gunpla will be released!

  480. wooooo! coming back to building gundams recently with a pg release and such amazing MGs now i can’t wait to see what 2015 brings! and HLJ gonna show them all 😀

  481. The upcoming gunplay are awesome also keep up the awesome work

  482. Astray Red Frame Kai Still Better Looking 🙂 Dose Swords

  483. That blue frame d looks so smexy, I like it! Oh and pretty awesome giveaways. Hope I get picked 😀

  484. Happy new year guys! What do you two think or regonguista G ? I myself am not a huge fan of it, it’s labeled as a kid’s show but I’m having trouble on seeing it as one, specially because it’s a big mess. Thanks to you two for always making these videos 🙂

  485. I still prefer astray red frame compared to blue frame

  486. Let’s hope that 2015 will give us an MS-08TX Efreet! I’m hoping that Bandai will give us the EXAM version of the Efreet.

  487. Can’t wait to see the pg unicorn with LEDs, btw i really want to win something this time

  488. Striker 1 proceed to operation (over). Striker 2 please standby until Striker 1 comes back (over).

  504. nice to see you both again. more movie review please haha anyway any news out there ’bout gundam live action film? i’m really curious bout it.

  505. Nice aile strike syd wish I get the aile strike.I want it so bad, wining that aile strikes is just like I’ve done the impossible without even doing anything. 1 question is the aile strike need to build or is it already done with you?

  507. Great Episode as always.
    Just one question are there any plans for a reward program (because I mostly buy at HLJ *wink* *wink*)?

    Happy New Year from Germany!

  508. Alea Iacta Est!

  509. Great episode to start the year.
    Looking forward to see that PG Unicorn lighted up with the LED in the next episode.
    On the other hand, I would like to have either of those two Strikes. ^_^
    “Cross-fingers”

  510. Those are some damn fine MGs

  511. Guys, Thanks for showing us all those awesome kits on this episode.
    Ryan, I’m with you on being a little scared about how the new starwars movie will turn out. Trailer looks great tho!
    Syd, that PG unicorn framework is amazing. Thumbs up for Bandai and special thanks to you for showing us in detail.

  512. Really want to order that Unicorn and LED set from you guys, but I’m kinda not cool with dropping $300 only to have to wait for over a month to get it. :/

  513. The Strike Rouge is my favorite suit, though I still haven’t built one D:
    I think I’ll start with the HG, then try to get my hands on the RG (somehow), then the MG with IWPS (right?) and eventually the PG! Would be cool to see them all lined up ^^

  514. AILE STRIKESSSSSSS!!!!!!

  515. Yeahhh! Double MGs for this year! What a way to kickstart the year!!!

  516. That Bandai Stormtrooper looks AMAZING!

  517. Happy new year guys!
    I really like Bandais Star Wars Kits. Really looking forward to the R2-D2 and R5-D4 Set. Love those little Astromechs!

  518. STRIKE GUNDAM!!!

  519. it’s good to see you back guys

  520. Strikes!

  521. Loved the show! PG Unicorn looks really cool!

  522. Oh ya if I do win the aile strike, would you please sign the box for me …it’ll be so great thanks for reading my comment, if you dont i still respect you without something begins to lower

  523. Syd, I REALLY like the colors you chose to paint the PG Unicorn inner frame. Can you share what colors and brands you used? Using that metallic finish makes the frame look incredible.

    It would be an incredible honor to get your painted Strike. It truly looks great. Thanks!

  524. Would love to get that Rouge with the Big Bird!!!!

  525. Come on Mr Random, strike me, strike me! Wonder what surprise is in the box.

    Welcome back from vacation and hope Syd fortune turns out wrong and he has a banner year.

    Got the PG Unicorn sitting hear in the box, looking forward to starting it. Finishing up the MG v-Ka that’s taken a while to get all the detailing done. Hopefully this weekend the workbench gets to see the PG.

    Looking forward to watching your show for 2015. Keep them coming.

  526. oh look at that inner frame for the pg unicorn… so sexy… if only I had the money to actually purchase the kit…. good show guys!

  527. The stormtrooper looks rather nice, though it’s disappointing to know that it doesn’t have much articulation. Not too big on the blue frame D. I am excited for the red warrior. Not a big fan of uc stile gundams, but that one is very good looking. Keep up te great work.

  528. Hey guys great show, I saw they announced the 00 raiser rg is there any your looking forward to?

  529. Awesome that you guys are in 163 episodes
    I cannot wait for RG 00 raiser to be announced

  530. mg done next pg

  531. I need to finish my backlog before I can get hands on that Unicorn but I welcome those free stuff. Happy New Year guys.

  532. I been following your channel on YouTube since 2 weeks before christmas. I got my first kit for christmas which was MG Wing Zero Custom 1/100. I can honestly say your videos really help! Love the videos and btw that blue frame is epic!

  533. STRIKE STRIKE!

  534. Hey guys, sorry for posting twice I just really need to know… if i know right now that i will not get the LED unit for the PG Unicorn, is it worth it then? i can get the kit its self but I will not be able to afford the LED’s as well… and I will NOT be taking my unicorn apart to get the LED’s in there… so i have to ask: is it actually worth it if I am not going to get the LED’s???? I REALLY HOPE YOU REPLY TO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Do you have the MG kit and love it? If so then I suspect you’ll be ultra satisfied with an unlit PG kit. The kit still looks great. But if you know you can disassemble later to add the LED kit if you decide you have to have it. I believe Syd said the LED kit comes with instructions on how to do that.

      I’d say that if you really like the Unicorn, have the regular MG kit and love it, then you’ll be happy with an unlit PG Unicorn too.You could always direct some UV LEDs onto it later to make the inner frame glow on it’s own. 🙂

      • Thanks man! I just finished building the MG full armor unicorn Ver Ka. and I really like it but I get frustrated with The transformation because of the head for the most part but i really am interested in the pg… i think that the Unicorn is one of my favorite MS, and as such I have the destroy mode HG as well as the banshee Norn banshe HG. I may even get the regular MG of the Unicorn. as well as at least one more Sinanju.. custom pain it possibly haha.

  535. Glad to see you guys are back and ready for the new year!

  536. That PG Unicorn is a sweet kit.

  537. Loved the PG Unicorn. I put mine together with the light kit and it is awesome. Will you have the full armor available to order?

  538. Another amazing year Gunpla and I have to say my most prosperous year of Gunpla yet. Thankyou Syd and Ryan for a great year of gunpla. Mg Strike. Mobile Suit Gundam Seed was my first ever gundam series so I will be after that. Hopefully it will be at my door steps and oh how I love surprises!

  539. OMG the strikes together?!?! U guys are awesome!!

  540. The two strikes together is just insane. Really wish they would make the ootori in HG somewhere down the line

  541. Sid and Ryan,

    I just got into gunpla last year and came across your youtube channel. Love the stuff you guys do. I love MGs and hope to win one. PS I am interested it what this “surprise” is.

  542. Syd, what are your thoughts on a RE/100 scale version of the Hy-Gogg? It kind of shares similar shoulder and feet designs with the Nightingale.

  543. Great episode you guys. This may be slightly off topic but do you think we’ll get anymore PG kits from the Wing series? I’d personally love a PG Deathscythe hell custom or endless waltz version of Heavy arms. Thoughts?

    • Probably the closest you’re going to get for a while yet is this scratch build by a guy named MatX. He essentially takes a PG Wing Zero and modifies it into a Deathscythe Hell.

      http://mxgs.blogspot.com/p/projects.html

      (If the link doesn’t show up, just google “MatX Hellraiser Deathscythe”.)

      Hope you enjoy it.

    • Bandai creates kits for a profit; unless those RG Wing kits sell like hotcakes or they do another WG anime (reboot or teardrop), Wing just isn’t relevant enough for bandai to invest in a series of Wing PGs.

  544. Loving that Blue Frame. Nice to see something with so much done to it on offer as a reward as well. Either of those Strikes would make someone real happy.

  545. Would it be weird if this comment win hahaha

  546. Dat ale strike though I’m Dribling for dat MG

  547. I would really love if bandai would do an MG perfect strike. That would be AWESOME!! BTW Welcome back guys!!

  548. Here’s hoping I win those MGs. A couple questions:

    – Are the giveaway MGs the Ver. RM/Ootori or the original Strike/Rouge? They look great either way, but I couldn’t tell which versions I was looking at…

    – How many variations of the Astrays are there now? Red Frame, Blue Frame, Gold Frame, Civilian Astray are all the base versions I know of, but the Red Frame by itself has seen half a dozen releases with different backpacks/weapon packs/etc. Sheesh.

  549. Great episode guys, can’t wait for the RG 00 Raiser!

  550. Well, I officially cannot live without a PG Unicorn after the frame views.

  551. Welcome back guys.. It’s been a while.
    That unicorn frames scream for mechanical detailing paint.
    Welp, you review about the storm trooper does interest me..

  552. Speaking of the Jesta, do you think there’s the possibility of a MG Jegan release? They share a similar build so it could be possible! Also StrikeStrikeStrike pleaassee

  553. Yay GunplaTV! I’ve been waiting for a video since last year!

  554. Awesome show as always. I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings, especially for the Star Wars kits.

  555. Oh my god that strike rouge looks a-meijin!

  556. “Sid Hand job” lol. liking the strike hand job. lol

  557. Welcome back guys, that blue frame looks cool, even better than the first one. Still not sold on the pg unicorn tho. Both of those strike version mg’s are cool! “Cross finger”

  558. Happy new years, guys! Cross fingers to win some gunpla this year 🙂

  559. Happy New Year. Im so excited in building my coming PG Unicorn. As well as the strike RM. Off-course..

  560. syd i realy like to get my hand on aile stike gundam hehehe

  561. Comment for entry.

  562. PG. PG. My finger needs you.

  563. Great episode guys! Keep up the good work!

  564. I want an army of those storm troopers, they’re pretty rad.

  565. D blueframe looks so awesome!

  566. Strikes galore Happy 2015!!! It would be awesome to win any of those kits. Keep up the good work. 🙂

  567. Happy new years everyone. I loved the Hobbit: 5 armies, but I also didn’t read the Hobbit book, proving Ryan’s statement there. Only 5 days until my last semester of college starts, can I pull it off?

  568. In response to your question about customizing the LED kit, I’m doing a custom build of the PG unicorn and I am going to make my own UV LED circuit that has a switch for having it be activated based on the light level of the room. Considering adding in a circuit to increase and decrease the LED intensity.

  569. Man I love my pg unicorn I just finished putting on the decals and I can’t stop looking at it and I was wondering if you might be able to put the pg unicorn beside a mega size kit because that’s almost how big the transformed unicorn is.

  570. looking good on that Unicorn PG.

  571. I waiting on the Feb restock on the Blue Frame D, cant wait!

  572. i will win the gunpla that will pierce the heavens.

  573. I’m still waiting on my backordered Unicorn waterslide decals… -.- I shall amuse myself with these unfinished gundam first…

  574. 2015

  575. mg blue astry

  576. Looking forward to seeing Sid’s completed unicorn.

  577. Happy New Year guys!I was having second thoughts about getting the new MG blue frame but after watching this episode, I’m sold. Definitely getting one. Thanks!

  578. The old UC Perfect Grades have better frames.

    Bandai going cheap is the new trend i guess.

  579. PICK ME PICK ME!!!

  580. Happy New Year, this year I built my first MG. Fingers crossed for those cool kits. Hears to another great year of Gunpla!

  581. Anytime a Toy Tengoku episode or another Boss Builds episode would come up? Not that I don’t enjoy watching you guys, I honestly do.
