  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.

    Reply
  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?

  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.

  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?

    Reply
    • 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.

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

    Reply
  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.

    Reply
    • 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.

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

      Reply
  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! 😛

    Reply
  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…

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

    Reply
  42. Still very excited for the PG Unicorn.

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

    Reply
  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!

    Reply
  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.

  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.

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

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

      Reply
    • 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 😡

      Reply
  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.

  65. Great episode as usual!

    Reply
  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.

    Reply
    • 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.)

    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.

    • 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…

    ooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Reply
  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!

  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.

  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!

  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)

    Reply
    • 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.

  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.

  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.

    Reply
  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.

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

      Reply
    • 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.

      Reply
      • 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.

    Reply
  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

  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

  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.

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

    Reply
  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?

    Reply
    • 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.

    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.

  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.

    Reply
  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).

  419. wow 2 MGs ?? thanks syd !

    Reply
  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.

    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. 🙁

    Reply
  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.

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!
