  15. It is crazy how its better for me to buy from hlj than a seller near me. Love you guys.

    Reply
    • It’s not that crazy considering that (for example) the dollar value is higher than the yen value these days. So obviously if you import (for example) from Japan to the US, you’re going to be getting a better deal.

      Also, if you buy (for example) from a US based shop, they’re always going to mark up (even a little bit) the price to offset any expenses they deal with from having a distributor import from Japan.

  19. Quick question. How did you guys get a job in Japan? Did you apply before you got there or while you were there? Love the show! And the thunderbolt was a great kit!

    Reply
    • Good luck. Getting a job in Japan for an outsider is near impossible unless you want to teach English. Even that is really hard cause everyone wants to be in Japan.

  30. Great episode guys! You guys hear about the MG Fenice Rinascita release?

    Reply
    • I’m sure they’ve heard/read about the MG Fenice Rinascita coming. Though this leads me to suspect that we’re going to get the Wing Fenice in MG as as P-Bandai.

      • Build fighters MG as a P Bandai?! Seriously dude?

  31. Dear ladies and gentlemen

    So, who will be your favorite director for the RoboTech movies?
    Talked about it way back when, in the older episodes of Gunpla TV.
    Only remember NOT Michael Bay and George Lucas. LOL

    But serious, I’m on the fence for the new Hyaku Shiki 2.0.
    Do you know if it will be the mechie gold plating?
    Can’t find a clear answer online, maybe you could shine a light on the subject.

    Tanks for the show and keep up the great work!

    Reply
    • It will be plated, yes. Why else do you think it would cost that much?

      Reply
  32. That’s really near and creative how you guys did the “flip book animation with R2D2 and the R4D5. Is it true that there are shops in japan or in malls where you can buy gunpla and build it there or have some help from people, Kind of like Gunpla build fighter and build fighters try, Cool episode and nice R2D2 sounds, I was not sure whether my hearing was going crazy. Keep up the awesome work!!

  33. HI Guys
    I look forward to your new episode every week.
    Being relatively new to Gundam.
    I have read that PG grade will soon be replaced by MG as the new PG?
    Is this true? I see quite a few PG grade in Vancouver but they are several years old.
    None the less they are very cool!
    Cheers
    George AKA ST Spike

    Reply
    • You know, I honestly wouldn’t be too surprised if Bandai decides to cut off the PG line completely…eventually.

      At least though, I’d like to see a PG for Exia and 00 Qan[t] since I’m a big fan of Gundam 00 and I recently got my first PG… The 00 Raiser. I haven’t had time to start building it, but from what I’ve seen, it’s pretty damn awesome.

      But going back on topic, GunPla engineering by Bandai is drastically improving every year. MGs lately are actually very very close to what was reserved for PGs. And the fact that PGs probably cost Bandai a lot of money to develop, engineer, and manufacture; not to mention PGs coming out every so often and also not many people buying them…

      I can totally see Bandai ditching the PG line soon. It’s antiquated and overly costly.

      And to be quite honest, if I had to choose between PG and MG (even assuming that both lines have the same number of kits, etc), I would probably go with MG because the 1/100 scale is plenty big enough, the quality & parts separation in MG is amazing as it is and gets better every year, etc.

      I hope that helped?

      Reply
      • Don’t be absurd. PG will never go away. It’s easy money for Bandai. Waiting 1 to 2 years for a PG is well worth it.

  36. i recently just started hobby link tv in the middle of march and totally love it. all i wanna do is buy gunpla. My first and only models i have are Mg Aile Strike Gundam ver Rem and RE/100 Gundam Mk 3

    Reply
    • “My first and only models i have are Mg Aile Strike Gundam ver Rem and RE/100 Gundam Mk 3”

      That statement would suggest that you own 1 model kit. =P
      You should be saying like:

      The only models that I currently own are the MG Aile Strike RM Ver and RE 1/100 Gundam MK3.

      But anyway, welcome to the hobby. It’s going to be a long, expensive, and fun road for you. Try not to get overly excited with buying kits since it’ll end up turning into a messy & expensive backlog.

      I think it’s good that so far, you’re sticking with the 1/100 line (MG and Reborn 1/100). I think that you should basically stick with MG only if you don’t want to get too involved with the hobby. Besides, most/all of the popular ones are out in MG or will come out soon.

  50. I’ve just started watching hobbylink.tv last week because I wanna learn more about gunplas?/gundams. hahaha. There are only few youtubers that post quality-updated videos about the upcoming gundams and/or their features :O! and you’re one of them :). Well just keep up the good work! :3. I wanna learn more about gundams especially gunplas because I want to buy one but unfortunately we don’t have THAT budget :(. Well, as well as I want to buy one I cant hahaha. But even I just watch videos or look at the pictures of gunplas, it will already satisfy me hahaha.

    oh and on the robotech movie thing, if that happens, it’s the worst thing that could happen to macross, harmony gold has blocked all macross stuff for a while now , it is a complex and legal problem but in the event of a movie happening that movie wont reach japan and, bandai wont be able to do kits or toys from that movie, what sony has, are the rights to do live action movies from Robotech, not the rights over the merchandise harmony gold owns those.
    Harmony Gold is close to bankruptcy and that is why they decide to sell the rights for the movies, as long as harmony gold exists macross will be blocked outside japan, that is why all macross fans should be hoping for harmony gold to go bankrupt.

  108. I am a brand new builder. I saw some finished kits, and some youtube videos and became immediately hooked. I have 4 kits and 1 more on the way(Hono). I bought the Hono from HLJ. I would love to buy more from you guys, but it seems everything I want is on backorder. I read what it means to be on backorder, and being in the states, I can’t wait that long to get my gundam fix. Even though I haven’t built a kit yet. I go a little overboard when I see something I would like to do. And I just jump in feet first. Now I’m doing some research on how to make my kits better. Did I move too fast? I have 2 MG’s and now 3 HG’s. Should I start with something a little more simple? I guess I should have asked these questions first, huh! Oh well, I’m in now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, are you guys going to be getting any of the backordered stuff in anytime soon? Or, if I order it, how long would it take to get a backordered kit? Thanks.

      Reply
      • Not everyone would be willing to cough up a $100+ + shipping for, the most part, a toy. If you’re a serious builder, close to that sum would go to paints, custom parts etc. So I guess paying a ~$10 for a HG is much, much better investment imho for an average casual builder.

  163. I’m Totally in love with the Honoo designs, I REALLY hope we get all of the Honoo’s in kit release form, my only disappointment with the Wing Honoo is the fact that the extra parts are included in the Magazine rather than the kit, Not that it takes away from it.

  205. I got a hold of the Mineshima God Hand Ultimate Nippers (http://www.hlj.com/product/MNESPN-120/Sup) the other day, and after reading the manual online, realized I should probably get a set of Nipper Maintenance Oils (http://www.hlj.com/product/godnm-285/Sup) if I want it to last. However, I’m running into a problem I recall Syd mentioning in an earlier episode about shipping chemicals out of Japan. He mentioned that HLJ sometimes has problems with shipping certain items, and when they do, they have to provide the post office with a Material Safety Data Sheet for the shipment to be completed.

    A friend of mine is trying to ship an oil set to me in the US from Japan, and the post office returned the package to him the next day. I did some research on the issue, and the only solution I could find was to try to get the MSDS from Mineshima and have my friend print it out and take it and the package to FedEx to ship it to me. Is there any other way you guys know of to get chemicals (specifically this oil set!) out of the country?

  219. Wing Gundam Zero Honoo looks awesome. In my opinion it’s one of the best designs that th Gundam Build Fighters anime and manga series have given us. I just love how the clear orange pieces compliment the red plastic. When I get my Honoo I’m going to paint the undersides of the orange with gold paint to make it stand out more.

  222. Did my last comment get deleted? Weird, maybe the post didn’t go through. I don’t think I was breaking any rules.

    Anyway, I asked for some tips on shipping Nipper Maintenance Oil (NM-285, which you guys have listed on HLJ) from Japan to the US. Syd mentioned dealing with shipping this sort of material and having to sometimes supply a Material Safety Data Sheet, so I was hoping for some guidance.

    i never watched robotech, but i’ve seen a handful of macross series and have been a fan of the valkyries ever since i first saw them; i think it’d be pretty epic to see sony bring them to life on the big screen.
    speaking of valkyries, i couldn’t help but notice that bandai’s new dx chogokin vf-19 may be available on hlj when it releases later next month (‘if supplies are sufficient’). would it be possible for you guys to bring one on the show when they come in (like when the robot damashii kshatriya was released)?

      These were bonus items included with the May 2015 issue of Hobby Japan, but the magazine is unfortunately discontinued now.
