  3. I love the MG RX-78-2 Origin’s design.

    THE KNEE GUARDS PROTECT THE KNEE WHEN THE LEGS BEND!

    The new guy also has a nice pleasing voice, though he seems a bit nervous when he’s not talking ๐Ÿ˜‰

    From what I’ve seen online, the EX Standard kits aren’t very amazing. There are hollow parts that can be seen, and they are missing 80% of the colors.

  13. Ever since the announcement of the RX-78-2 Origin Ver. I’ve wanted it. Seeing this review only makes me want it more! One of these days I’ll get my hands on one.

  15. Which MG kit should I buy the gundam 3.0 or the origin verison to get the most value out of them? I like the extra parts like the cannon, and the new rifle, and the clear effect parts, but i like the outer sharp design of the 3.0 better. Also, I hope I can win the MGs ~~~

  16. Not one, but two MG’s? You’re too kind, Syd.

  19. Can’t wait to order my RX 78 Origin version. I just finished my 2.0 and 3.0, and I am actually looking into the original Ver.Ka and 1.0 (and maybe a Facepalm Gundam), just to round out the collection. it’s kinda a shame that the Origin version doesn’t include a core fighter, but I already have enough.

  21. Those IBO kits don’t stop being cool! Can’t wait until things like the Kimaris and Gusion finally get released.

    • Oh and also, looking at 2Old4Toy’s review of the SD EX-Standard RX-78 2 you really aren’t missing much. They’re extremely hollow and incredibly sticker heavy. https://youtu.be/0zOUgk7zUC8

  56. I’m having a crisis man. Someone asked me the other day “what if our consciousness is constantly dying and being replaced by a new consciiusness that retains all the memories of the previous consciousness?” I don’t like that thought man. It’s like my brain is constantly replacing itself. And I mean, over my lifetime all my cells are going to be replaced. At some point not a single cell in me will have been alive when I was born. It’s like I’m being replaced by myself. It’s wigging me out, what do you think?

    Reply
    • Ah, the Theseus’ Ship Paradox. If you set sail on a ship, and at every port you come to you replace a single plank making up that ship, eventually replacing every single plank before coming back to your home port, is your ship still your ship?

      Surely to learn the answer would be to invite madness…

      • What the hell? What does this stuff have to do with model kits?

        Reply
        • Simple, if you get a kit and mod it bit by bit over the years to the point that there is not a single original part left, is it still the same custom kit?

          • Ok. I never done modding with gunpla before, but I have with bionicles and I guess I could understand, but why not buy and mod some new other gunpla from scratch?

    Reply
  63. I’m really hoping for 1/100s of the Hyakuri/ren. Between G-Rec’s Elf Bullock and IBO’s Hyakuri, it’s only a matter of time before we see a Gundam Jehuty. Or a Gundam Anubis. Mmm, Gundam Anubis…

  98. ei what happened to the “MALLARD”? more power to your show guys!

    Reply
  99. The RX-78-02 uses a core pod which is completely different to the core block system of the RX-78-2 where the core fighter folds up and sits inside the lower torso. Instead the wings fold in, the fuselage contracts and it fits into the upper section of the torso with only the nose of the fighter in the lower section.

    It could have been possible to include the core fighter and have the same level of poseability if it weren’t for the LED. However the cockpit would need to be engineered to allow the pilot seat to rotate from vertical into horizontal position and would probably make the kit more complex than it needs to be.

    Reply
    • So the Origin RX-78’s core fighter is something akin to an accordion? Crumpling in on itself in order to save space to fit inside just the top of the chest instead of filling out the entire chest cavity?

      Seems like it’s sort of borrowing from the GP01 design, then, excluding the backpack integration. It also seems like it would be very very finnicky indeed. Personally, I’m fine if the core fighter gimmick is discarded altogether (as it is here).

      Reply
      • The RX-78-02 houses the core pod in the chest and I would assume also incorporates the operational computer, whereas the RX-78-2 housed it in the waist area. While it may seem unnecessary, without it you wouldn’t be able to recreate the scene in Jaburo where the three components have been separated so they run diagnostics or scratch build the Reinforced GM that Sayla had to use the core fighter to escape before it went the way of all GMs.

        That being said, the pilot figure included with this kit is Amuro in his civilian clothes and while I may be disappointed in the absence of he cre fighter, I would have liked seeing Amuro in the fighter without wearing a Normal Suit even less.

  117. I really like the Hyakuri since the first time I saw in the anime.
    Good proportions, quite “realistic”, meaning that is believable as a fighting machine for fighting in space (not on land with those little feet)!
    It miss only one thing! It doesn’t transform completely in a MA form! Only the arms disappear. It should be very fun to make it full transformable! i hope a good modeler will try that!

    Reply
  118. Wanna know why the RX78 Origin ver. release right now? Because they will retool this kit in the form of the Full Armor Gundam for Thunderbolt, probably towards the end of next year. Wanna bet?

  119. Gotta say, props to the new guy, he didn’t do a bad job. It’s obvious he isn’t really comfortable with the camera; yet he still did a good job of showing off his kits.

    Hopefully Ryan feels better soon, keep up the good work guys!

  121. Really looking forward to seeing that 1/100 Barbatos assembled. Although I’ll probably wait and get the hi-res. That one looks way cooler.

  122. Welcome to the show Todd! You did great with the Hyakuri and Hyakuren! love those kits. but the MG Origin RX-78-02 is just amazing, I love how that kit looks and the gimmicks, all of it, cannot wait to build it in the future ( i hev the Titanium Finish 2.0 on the way for X-mas so must likely I won’t build the Origin for a while).

    Can’t wait for next weeks show with the MK II and 1/100 Barbatos.

  156. Looking forward to see you guys put that 1/100 Barbatos together, I am very interested in why it is not thought to be a Mastergrade being that it has an internal frame. I also found it interesting that the 2 HG’s you showed from IBO were more the standard HG design and not frame centric like the Graze and Barbatos HG. Keep up the good work.

    Reply
    • According to them only the Hyakuren (the purple samurai-style one) lacks an inner frame. The Hyakuri follows the IBO trend.

      The kits are probably reviewed on dalong.net. You can find pics of them there to see for yourself.

      Reply
  157. Question for Syd. Now that you have seen the runners and (possibly) build the 1/00 Barbatos and seen the runners and set up for the Hi-Res Barbatos, how similar do you think the kits will be or do you think the Hi-res will be closer to an “MG” style IBO kit?

  165. I’ve seen photo reviews of 1/100 Barbatos and I’m a bit dissapointed in stickers amount and their placement. I know it’s basically NG and we’ve seen worse, but… dunno, at least yellow parts on shoulder pads could’ve been actual yellow parts and not stickers =\ Will be waiting for next episode for your oppinion, guys. I’ve already got HG version and not sure if I want to get mostly the same thing just in another scale.

    That’s a long one. Thx for reading my “failed” comment. Syd, I did follow you on the MS A and MS B mention in your gunply expo video. Thx again for further clearing up the information. I did receive the package, and just started on the IBO barbatos. My 4 year old son is starting to be able to recognize HLJ boxes.

  189. Since you wanted to know about the SD EX standard, it is disgusting when unpainted (Like bandai didn’t even try for a $6 kit). When I built my RX782 ex standard I had to paint all the color because the stickers didn’t cut it. I love the Double X and the X and would love to colony drop those out of your hands!

    You guys have one of the best costumer services I’ve ever experienced. Trust is one of the things I value the most.
    Still remember when you took the time and patience to resend me that MG Mk-II 2.0 a few years back when I failed to inform you my full address. That was my very first kit!
    Thank you for showing me what real gunpla is, HLJ!

    Best regards, all the way from Brazil.

  207. Wow! Double X and X are both favourites of mine but they’re generally out of my price range, I hope I win!

    Also, I was wondering if you guys could do a comparison for the new HG Revive Qubeley with the old HG one. Specifically if it can do the classic pose with the hands on it’s hips.

    Anyway, great episode guys, keep up the good work!

  208. 2 master grade give aways hell ya wouldn’t mind something like that XD.

    super fumina is nice but bandai should really try harder and make her more like the recent frame arms girls kit, honestly fumina cant compare really shes out matched.

    and speaking of frame arms girls any idea why kotobukiya only makes a small amount of frame arms girl kits!? they sold out faster then i could blink my eyelids.

    I bought one to test out kit bashing with gundam kits to make my own gundam girl, it worked out perfectly except I cant get more to make others.

  211. Seeing all these new revive kits and RG kits, makes me feel like Bandai didn’t spend enough time creating all those old kits, haha. Of course, that’s not true, but we do see some big improvement comparing to the older kits, especially with 1/144 scales.

    Todd did a great job, although I subjectively find his voice a bit intimidating, maybe I’m just not used to it yet.

  241. re: MGs
    I have my concerns about MG kits (size and price) so I haven’t delved into them yet. I recently ordered a couple of RGs because they were on sale, but they’ll be in the same scale as the HGs I already have.

    re: Revive HGs
    I like how the Revive treatments have been turning out so far, filling the gap in detail and articulation between the old HGs and RGs. I wonder if the Strike Freedom will get a Revive.

    re: IBO kits
    I know that there have been older kits that started out with basic accessories / builds, like the Exia and the 00 Gundam, and more parts were added later. It does not seem uncommon to get more ‘complete’ kits once the series is over. My concern with the IBO kits is that, because of the parts-swapping nature that allows for more customization, a gunpla may not be considered complete unless you can mix and match multiple kits. Even the Options kits come with parts for more than one MS. The problem is that there are people like me with a limited budget and limited shelf space, so how can we efficiently complete a Barbatos or Hyakuri?

  267. I picked up a pair of SD EX from eBay and built them. Very simple kits and goes quite fast to build. However much of the details are stickers, and they are hollow from the back. They pose pretty well though, since they have real polycaps. Quite cheap also, I really enjoyed the two kits I got, and might pick up more later on. Great kit to give away as presents to someone that has not built any gunpla before, cleans up well with nub marks as well.
