Gunpla TV – Episode 192 – Iron-blooded Orphan kits and Episode VII discussion! No spoilers!

Todd held up his end of the bargain and assembled two kits while Syd brought the Gusion. They go in depth on their HGs and talk about the just-released 1/100 Graze as well. And don’t forget the PG Unicorn, Banshee Norn, and LED set are back in stock! Ryan and Syd couldn’t focus properly the day before The Force Awakens released and so waited until after they had seen it to film their segment of the show. We do our best not to reveal any real spoilers before our viewers get a chance to see it for themselves. So hurry up because it’s so hard not to talk about it!

Kits featured in this video:

1/144 HGUC Qubeley (REVIVE)
1/100 Graze (Normal Type / Commander Type)
1/144 HG Man Rodi
1/144 HG Gundam Gusion
1/144 HG Gundam Barbatos + Long-Distance Transportation Booster
1/60 PG Unicorn Gundam
1/60 PG Unicorn Gundam 2 Banshee Norn
LED Unit for PG Unicorn Gundam/PG Banshee Norn
Star Wars Artfx+ R2-D2 & C-3PO with BB-8

  1. The Gusion looks amazing. I can’t wait for the 1/100! Not sure if you guys saw my comment on the last video but I would love to see another Syd’s top 5 or even a top 10 master grade kits.

  7. Koona t’chuta, Solo?

    I booked my ticket a month in advance only to get an email 2 days before the release that my seat had been double booked and there were no more seats available. I went to the cinema and they refunded me the money, then rebooked me a VIP seat for today (22nd) for free, and gave me a card for a complimentary large popcorn and large coke

    That’s some awesome customer service 😀

  22. Great episode guys! Been waiting for it quite eagerly 🙂 btw, why do u guys give out completed kits? In my opinion, it would have been better if the giveaways are kits that are not build so that people can enjoy the process of building the kit themselves. That what I would prefer. And yes! MG Geara Doga!!! Omg wish I could win one that isn’t built yet but hey beggars can’t be chooser hahaha. Fingers crossed.
    (Ps. Try reading my username: wytre muahahaha)

    Reply
    • We give away the completed kits because we don’t have room to store kits we’ve already shown on the show and it gives the viewers a chance to have a kit they’ve seen on the show for themselves.

  23. No spoilers for Star Wars yet please… Will try to see it next week.

    Reply
  24. Well those are some good kits i really like the IOB stuff, but need more star wars stuff. Heres a good question for you guys are you coming back to los angeles for Anime Expo 2016? PLease dont bring Todd but bring Anne and Lindsey.

  25. the Long-Distance Transportation Booster does reminds me of GN arms from Gundam 00. It actually looks cool but i dont think bandai will release it for the 100 scale. if there is then it will be huge

  32. You guys are my weekly “anime” drug. Please try to go on as far as you can. Syd and Ryan. I watched you guys grow from being awkward and funny infront of the camera, to two great Hosts and still Funny as hell! May the Force be with you.

  38. i’ve seen the movie for free( thank you company) :p i can say I was not disappointed with ep 7 because I am not expecting anything big. but nonetheless it was very good, abit disney-ish with the humor but something i welcome

    i hope to win the mega shiki so i can make the Shiki-shiki amazing

    Reply
  39. Quite excited to be able to hold (and own) a PG. Hopefully will arrive before the post office breaks for Christmas. Was in Japan back in June this year and was a bit reluctant in picking up a PG box to admire. Didn’t want to risk dropping it and need to explain and apologize especially since I don’t speak Japanese. Plus, didn’t want my son following my lead in pulling things off the shelf 😛 Merry Christmas Ryan and Syd… and to everyone else at HLJ.

Loving the pack of the transporter that includes even the figure and needs some serious painting

  46. Great episode guys! I recently ‘rediscovered’ Gundam kits (started way back in 1998 while living in Japan) and have been having a whole lot of fun in the past couple of months. I find the Hobbylink TV episodes really fun and educational. I was lucky enough to watch SWTFA during a private screening here in Auckland and i find that there was a lot nostalgia in this latest film. Definitely a nod to the original trilogy. I did find the ending a bit ‘abrupt’ probably because of the more action oriented/’roller coaster’ approach of the movie. Still, quite pleased with how the movie turned out.

    Reply
  47. looks like i will have to add a new wish list of kits i wanted lol

    Reply
  48. Ryan! C-3PO’s red arm is explained in a one-shot comic released by Marvel. You’re probably right about them using it as a tactic to sell more junk, since it has no purpose in the movie whatsoever and seems to exist exclusively to sell that comic and toys.

    But, the red arm reminds me of Big Boss from MGSV, so the idea of owning my very own Venom 3PO is enough to get me to buy a model kit. I’m part of the problem.

  50. i wonder if syd and ryan have heard that episode 8 already has a release date. its set for 2017, so be ready for rushed, quick cash in stuff from disney.
    on a gundam note, i would love to see a hyaku shiki revive (better yet, rg) because it seems that bandai is going back to its older kits and is redoing them, and i feel that the hyaku shiki deserves some love

    Reply
    • It wouldn’t be difficult, with the HGUC Deltas and the BF Mega Shiki. If they do make one, though, they’ll probably opt to make new molds altogether.

      Reply
  51. I still can’t help but think of the Ninja Turtles when I see the Man Roodi and Gusion.I might have to order the Long Distance Transport and the Graze Kai just because of all the modes. And hopefully I’ll be able to win either the Geara Doga or Mega Shiloh, now that would really get me pumped to finally order some Master Grade kits.

  95. I saw the film at 00:05 UTC on day of release, the cinema has an online booking system that displays how many seats are available. About two thirds of the seats in the 2D screen were still available so I was able to buy the tickets at the automated machine and make my way in.

    The film at first seemed like a series of separate scenes hastily edited together and there are some choices made in the film that I do not agree with, but I know some people have taken to complaining about a particular characters development, however it seems as though they were told “These are not the Droids you’re looking for” which compelled them up to the point that they touch an item that appears to unlock some repressed memories and pays off towards the end of the film.

  96. that MG Geara Doga would be the perfect christmas present for me hehehe

    Reply
  97. I think I’m getting a sort of fetish for “Fat” mobile suits. For example I love the Gusion a lot! It’s hard to draw something that is “fat” but also “powerful”. Usually fat mobile suit looks more funny than “dangerous”. Like the Man Rodi with its strange feet…too strange.

  188. The Gusion looks great but I’m waiting on the 1/100 to come out. The Transport Booster looks cool and certainly reminds me of the GN Arms except no beam weaponry. Certainly an interesting direction that Iron Blooded Orphans is going in. They have something similar to the Minovsky Particle but so far we haven’t seen any beam weaponry, all the battles are fought with shell weaponry and assorted close quarters weapons. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the Gundam Kimaris in action. Now that we’ve seen the Gundam Gusion in episodes 11, 12, and see how the battle with the pirates will end in episode 13.

    Definitely looking forward to Gundam Thunderbolt and more Iron Blooded Orphans over the holidays.

  189. hay Syd love you other site Gaijin Gunpla with its review on gundam models. I am planing to pick up my first PG kit and I was wondering what PG would you recommend for my first one

    Reply
    • Before the PG Unicorn/Banshee released my favourite was the Strike Gundam. That frame is the basis for the Strike Rouge, Strike Freedom, and Astray Red Frame. It’s really well designed. Right now, though, I’m still infatuated with the Unicorns.

      Reply
      • I agree with Syd, while I’ve only built the PG Banshee, it makes sense to me to go after the latest and greatest. either way you go, you will pick the PG that speaks to you.

  191. Merry Christmas Syd and Ryan. Sucks that you guys have to work during the holiday, but at least it’s a job that you love, right?

  192. Hmm… A BFHG or a MG? Well I just got my MG MBF-P02KAI GUNDAM Astray Red Frame and Action Base 1 today (12/22/2015) from USAGundamStore.com (I’m sorry guys, but I knew the person who helps with shipping and so I was able to get a special offer over there.) But don’t worry I’ll post pictures of the building on my account.

    So for my Christmas Holiday I’ll be busy building my MG MBF-P02KAI Red Frame and the HG Gundam kit that brother-in-law got me thinking year.

  197. Great show. Loved the gusion I built. I attempted to do some weathering with the tamiya kit for rust and botched it, made it look like it’s covered in dirt. Like the look but not what I was going for. I posted pics in the completed group. Any chance syd or todd can do a tutorial on that? Thanks! Oh, kit please!

  207. I just watched SW: Episode VII, and really liked it. Just like Ryan I avoided everything Star Wars related. Unfortunately, that also included this show because of the discussion, even if it was just opinions. So, I watched this episode a couple of days after. Happy holidays, guys. And I hope my family got my gundam presents from your site. 😀

  208. Hey guys, I was curious if you know where one could get the colors listed on Gundam kits for painting translated? I can see the percentages listed for the color mixtures and would like to paint my kits to color match, but I can’t read Japanese. Thanks for any information.

    Merry Christmas

    • I hear you on that, I got a PG Banshee on the first run but was too late to get the LED set. But to my amazement I got an email from HLJ saying that there are few LED sets coming into stock and would I want one? Sure enough 5 days late I had a Banshee and an LED set on my doorstep!

    Reply
  246. I’ve avoided 90% of spoilers on the new movie. The only thing I’ve ever asked of people who have seen it is whether they enjoyed it as a fan of the original trilogy, or as fans of the EU. The first EU book was ‘The Splinter of the Mind’s Eye.’ The first book I read, though, was ‘Heir to the Empire.’

    Mega-Shiki, if you can.

  247. Got the 1/100 Barbatos earlier this week, and after snapping it together… I’ve concluded that I’m “action figure model kit”ed out. There’s too much action figure, not enough model. For comparison, a VF-0 battroid that I only test-fitted is simpler in every way and yet looks a thousand times better. No silly gimmicks, just does what it needs to do. I think I’m gonna binge on Hasegawa for a while.

  253. Hi. Great episode, as always. I really like the Long Range Transport Booster for Barbatos. Just waiting for the MG version of the Barbatos to snag one. Have to be choosy as the currency rate between Yen and Malaysian Ringgit is quite far apart these days. Hahaha

    Lost quite a lot of my Gundam kits in the terrible big flood that hit my country during the same time last year. But I’m slowly trying to build my collection back up again.
