Syd assembled the newest Real Grade, the RG 00 Raiser, in front of the camera but left everyone hanging when he didn’t combine the 00 Gundam with the Raiser after assembly was completed. In this episode he goes through that and everything else the RG 00 Raiser does and also shows off the newest RE/100 kit!

To see the complete RG 00 Raiser build click here.

Kits featured in this video:

1/144 HG Kabkali
1/144 HGBF Dom R35
1/144 HGUC Revive RX-78-2 Gundam
1/144 HGBF Lightning Z Gundam
– 1/72 Star Wars Y-Wing Starfighter
1/100 RE/100 Gundam GP04 Gerbera
1/144 RG GN-0000+GNR-010 OO Raiser


  1. 🙂 nice episodes as usual. and here is to hoping for new announcement for the upcoming hobby show

  2. Heyo

  3. Thanks for the episode.

    Finally! RG 00 and RG Raiser get to combine to make 00 Raiser.
    Lol! Gundam Head Razor… Weird Japan.
    Thanks for bringing us info from Shizuoka Hobby Show!

    The angled looking Beam Sabre is a “Jitte” Beam Saber Blocking Unit
    It goes under the weapon’s barrel (the long rifle) and it can be used to catch incoming Beam Saber attacks without drawing his own beam saber.

    dat Gerbera.

  5. I’m in the first five comments? Has hell frozen over? Nice episode. The GP04 looks a lot better on video than it did in promo photos. Those feet don’t look minuscule now, and the entire thing in fact looks to have that nice slightly-wonky proportions thing that I love about the 0083 suits. The OO Raiser is kind of disappointing, all things considered. Not enough there to differentiate it from the HG. Oh well. Looking forward to seeing the inevitable Quanta.

    • I’ve contacted church to ask the same question. The holy man informed me that’s because there is no free give away this episode…. 😉

  6. i wish that the gpo4 had more colors on him

  9. Awesome episode guys, keep it up! Love the revive HGs!

  10. Looking forward to the MG Hyaku Shiki 2.0 and hoping for an actual build. 😉

    great episode!

  13. i want that razor do you sell it? jaja

  14. Thank you God for Gunpla TV, the best show on the internet (period).

  15. another RG to order

  16. I wonder how many comments there will be since there isn’t a giveaway this round.

    I don’t really like the lightning zeta, but then again i was never a fan of the zeta in the first place.

  17. Saw those Gundam razors and immediately thought Gundanium Alloy razors, that would be so rad!

  18. great vid as always might save up for those new kits ^_^

  19. ohhhh The GP-04!!!! its in the priveate warehouse waiting for me to make enough mula to have it sent to me <3 it looks amazing I cant wait to get it!

  20. Nice, i always want a GP04 kit. Nice work as always guys

  21. My dear Syd,

    If you do decide to shave on the show, please respect the show and only shave your face! Hahahaha. ROFL
    As you where reviewing the OO Raiser I noticed you mentioning the back skirt moving side to side. This gave me the idea that you never watched Gundam OO.
    May I suggest watching the show. Some people complain that it is too similar to Gundam Wing, but I guess that some people even complain about a sunny day with beautiful cherry tree blossom.
    Nevertheless, it’s a great show with a rather good story, great action and cool animation. Still have to finish watching the show myself, am on episode 17 of season 2, but it’s really great thus far.

    Thanks for no free stuff, a great episode and wish all the staff at HLJ lots of fun bringing the “Shizz” to the “Shizz”.

    PS, got my first MG Sinanju in from you guys last week!!! After a few commission MG’s will be attending to that beast. Have a custom color schem in mind, but not like the RUF Yellow Bird…. 😉

  22. i’m excited for the shizuoka expo and for a new release announcement possibility! crossing my fingers for a good one!

  23. Hi guys,

    Great show as usual.
    This 1/144 RG GN-0000+GNR-010 OO Raiser is coolish, I really like the shield, but that’s it.
    The razor stuff… ok, with such huge theme I guess is normal to see all kind of stuffs with Gundam’s face out there.

    Got few questions, if you don’t mind:
    – (I have this before, but, hey… to ask it cost nothing right? ) do you think we’ll ever see a SD version of the Sinanju Stein?
    – got any idea what will be the future for european fairs and expo for Bandai products? it is very difficult for us in Europe to buy locally, and models at expos are really overpriced. I don’t mind buying directly from you ( just placed a 40k YEN order ), but I think is more of spreading the love around. Or do you think Facebook will be the real gathering point for all Gunpla fans?
    – action figures, statues, bubble-head vynil of Gundam saga characters: are anywhere out there to be found?

    Keep up the good work,


  24. another great show as usual. hope you guys can show the new hgbf kits just came out or coming out.

  25. good show.that 00raiser seems cool, the 00 series is one of the best. will get one soon.

  26. love rg kits, need to buy some more. that 00 raiser looks awesome

  27. RE GP04!looks like a attractive kit for the RE line to me

  28. RG 00 is cool but I rather get a PG

  29. That beam part is to block enemy attacks if hes shooting and an enemy approaches with a beam saber

  30. Nick said on May 11, 2015

    The RE/100 like keeps getting better. I got the Nightingale but skipped the MK-III and GP04. Seeing all this new technology, I’ll be all over the Dijeh!

  31. I know a million people have probably said it but that angled beam saber effect part goes under the gun of the GPo4. Great episode as always, the GPo4 actually looks really good, especially compared to the Nightengale (which I thought was a little disappointing). Looking forward to what other ridiculously large kits we’ll get in this line (and your coverage of them!)

  32. i was studying for my architecture board exam but i had to voluntarily pause to watch this episode! gunpla tv episodes just made my week!

  33. Ugh. Now I want the GP04, and I haven’t even started the Mk III yet! Great show, fellas, as always.

  34. Oh man! I wasnt sold on this RE100 line after seeing the first three but this GPO4 just looks awesome and I kind of want it.
    Does anybody know if the manga (translated)is available for where this guy is from? NIce episode as always, thank you very much Sid and Ryan.

  35. As again what a great show and episode syd and ryan, I was wondering will you guys watch the new star wars movie when it comes out?

  36. THE GP04 looks AMAZING.

  37. Still comment even if there are no price for the next episode!!!!

  38. The RG 00 does nothing for me, I prefer the GP04. I can’t wait for the Hyaku Shiki 2.0 and the RE/100 Dijeh. I wonder what the next MG is and also what will be the big December kit? It’s probably not going to be a PG, I hope it’s a MG Ver.Ka.

  39. I’m so faithful I’m commenting even on a no prize episode to say great show guys

  40. I still much prefer the look of Katoki’s RX-78, which look so much cooler!

    Btw, have you guys ever discussed the future of Gunplas now that 3D printing made its way commercially? Of course, the quality of the commercial ones are far far from Bandai’s quality, but that might change in the next 5-10 years.

    Will we be able to see people order 3D models of spare parts? Or even crazier, an entire kit?

    Your thoughts on this?


    “New type of eraser”

    • Haha it was meant to say “Razor” on the first one but my head got jammed during the process.

    • 5 years are probably still too soon for 3D printed kits. In injection molding world, the term “cycle time” is being used a lot. It’s basically the performance measure of how fast the whole runner gets molded and injected. I would guess for each runner of a gunpla kit probably take anywhere from 20-40 secs. To print a runner now can easily take 30 minutes, (maybe even 2 hours) and the quality/resolution won’t be there for awhile. Also, higher the resolution (more steps, but less “step”), the longer the print time.

  41. Awesome.

  42. Hey Guys,
    Thanks for another great episode; your review of the GP04 was so good that I’m actually interested in buying it now!
    Does HLJ get advances sneak peak at Bandai’s next upcoming kits (e.g. like a distributors preview)?
    Do you think Bandai will phase out older HGs from production with the new revive series?
    Thanks for another great episode!

      Occasionally we get samples of the really hot new kits a few days before release — when we do, we’re always sure to share them with you guys on Gunpla TV as soon as possible!

      Not sure about the HG question; they’ve just announced new kits at the Shizuoka Hobby Show, so HGs look safe for now.

  43. That razor has 5 blades!

  44. Looking forward to the Convention news !

  45. I’ve got to find ways to build faster. I’m having a serious issue with overflow boxes of gunpla:) Have to find to clean out some room for those are still in the private warehouse.

  46. hi

  47. Nice OOraiser Gerbera looks awesome but isn’t that name a baby food brand anyways nice stuff and happy bday LOL have fun peace

  48. psh best for last, the GP-04 is way cooler looking then the 00 gundam.

  49. hello I am a big fan of the show and cant wait for more episodes and haft to tell you that the show inspired me to start bilding gundams and I hope to bild more in the future.

  50. very nice GP04.

  51. Can’t get enough of the good ol’ RX-78-2. Now where is my HGAC Leo? Seriously, how is that not a kit yet. I’ll take anything, Bandai, just let me build a Leo 🙁

  52. cant wait for my RG 00 raiser.
    nice episode as usual.
    keep up the good work!

  53. this is way too awesome.
    RG or MG now.. hmmm

  54. awesome, will you guys ever visit Australia? and if u do make sure u come to Brisbane in Queensland

  55. Awesome Raiser!

  56. Dave said on May 13, 2015

    I feel like that V notch on the ankle is one of those things that nobody ever thought of, and now they’re like how the heck did I not think of it before?

  57. nice! RE line becomes more and more interesting and that RG 00 Raiser looks great, I’am also excited for your Shizuoka Hobby Show reports and I’m looking forward to it!

  58. I am LOVING that GPO4.. though, i’m kinda preferring it without the 3 giant thrusters. It’s just a shame that it’s an RE100 instead of a MG.. As i’m not sure I can justify getting such a kit which isn’t that far from a MG in price.. but a lot simpler, when there’s so many MGs I still have on my radar.

  59. Interesting how few comnments there are when they isn’t a free giveaway.

    Good to have you guys back from Golden Week. Can’t wait to see what’s in store with the coming Hobby Show.

  60. gp04 is sexy

  61. Just make the purchase for RG 00 Gundam. By the way, I am quite new with this RG stuff I see their really tricky to build. My last gundam was serpent custom (2003 lol) and now I am begin to build more gunpla again.

    Just want to feel the enjoyment of building something.

  62. Great show guys!

  63. GG NO RE

  64. Hey Syd and Ryan, Awesome show, hope you could cover the entire Shizuoka Hobby Show, and any news from the RG Astray Red Frame? BTW I noticed that most RE/100 line didnt appeared on Anime but mostly from Manga and MSVs well except the upcoming Dijeh

    Hope to see you guys soon

  65. heru said on May 14, 2015

  68. McG said on May 16, 2015

    Hey Syd and Ryan, great show I’m excited to build my new GP04 soon. I just watched the Boss Builds episodes. I was just wondering if Scott ever did find time to build the Nu Gundam, if so how did he like it?

  69. Hey Syd and Ryan,

    Been watching the show for a few months now and have loved every bit of it. I recently got back into Gunpla (In Jan) and since then, I have bought over 60 kits. I have about 40 on my backlog right now, ranging from High Grades, Master Grades, to SD Gundams. I recently started purchasing from you guys since my other sources don’t have some of the newer kits and had a pleasant time purchasing from you guys. Your customer support has earned a new customer. I’ll be purchasing from you guys more in the near future. Keep up the great work!

  70. wow syd working and enjoying at the same time.. ENVY!

    for weeks, i have been forsaken by the fickle god of interweb; but once more, i have regained favor and rejoice at having the privilege of viewing more hltv goodness! thanks for keepn on with the keepn on syd & ryan; lookn forward to seeing what wonders you reveal in the shizuoka hobby show vid

  72. Winner!! 8)

  73. Give us that RX Razor 😀

  74. Is there a possibility of you guys doing decal tutorials for the 1/72 X-Wing? I’ve never applied them before and am unsure where to start. Don’t want my X-Wing to look awful!

  75. I’m really disappointed with all the P-Bandai exclusives i’m going to miss out on. The Cathedral Gundam looks awesome 🙁
