  6. To be honest, seeing a transformer that can’t be transformed is really weird for me
    But hey, if you give it for free for me, I’ll not complaining

    And also
    G1 transformers are superior than michael bay’s transformers

  9. Looks like a good gimmick of Hugo maybe considering buying it into my collection of IBO gunpla. Setsuna bust looks badass but still waiting for Fumina bust haha

  11. After hearing about how to choose what gundam to paint what not to paint I would definitely want to do a custom Barbados lupus or full armor thunder bolt gundam!

  12. It never occurred to me that there would be Transformers model kits, and please don’t remind me about Christmas I’m just a poor gunpla builder.

  19. It’s not gunpla but would love to win that Bumble Bee ^_^

  20. That bumblebee is from the dmk series right?
    That is awesome, the proportion is better than a transforming one,
    But its really hard to find one
    Plus, its a bit pricy for me..
    Hope i can win it

  21. I hate the design of Transformers in movies!
    If I win that bumblebee I know I will modify it to make it more “cartoonish”. Not a complete redesign (who has time for a work like that) just removing, adding, reshaping parts to make it more “cartoon”.
    The way it should be since the beginning in my opinion.

  22. Looking forward tot he rest of the Chopper kits to be released, i just want to build the big ass Chopper.

  23. SWEET LORD !!!!
    well I dont really have top 5 moments . but I have one favourite moment and that when syd was playing with his gunplas in the box and the saber fight was good too ….. that whole Episode was amazing

    Reply
  24. You go guys!

    You could totally make a mixed psychoframe Unicorn if you wanted to with that kit, but due to the pricing, the “meh-ness” of the MG Unicorn, and the fact that there are no ungergates…yeah i’d rather buy me a PG.

    I was really hoping the Full City fixed the problems that the original Gusion had, with it’s bad color separation, missing color apps and extreme reliance on stickers. While it does have better color separation, it’s done completely through stickers, so I think this will be a pass for me sadly. Oh well, lets hope a Full Mechanics of this will come to existence.

    At first I wasn’t really sold on the Hugo, but over time, the uniqueness of the design slowly slowly started to grow on me, probably beginning with that unique eye design. While the kit itself isn’t amazingly impressive, it seems to be one of those MS that focuses on it’s main function over anything else, that being raiding ships in space, so having claw feet for tearing apart hulls like a bird is a really attractive quality IMO, probably going to get this in the long run and put it on an action base, swooping in with feet deployed.

    Reply
  25. The amount of stickers on the Full City does not impress me. I suppose it helps Bandai keep the kit cheaper, though, which it probably needs with the size and mass of the Variable Scissor Armour.

    It was cool seeing the new MS’s in action, including the Hugo. And now they’ve unearthed two new suits, I’m looking forward to the reveal.

    I’d like you to know I’ve started building the MG Gundam the Origin I got through the SUPER SUMMER SALE!!! The different scale that allows for all the gimmicks certainly gives a different experience from the HGs and RGs I’m used to building. So far I’m enjoying it.

    I don’t paint all my gunpla, but when I do I do custom paint jobs.
    No, I honestly also do some touch-ups. The only one for which this isn’t true is the RG Trans-Am Raiser, because anything I did would only ruin the gloss paint job.

    BEE!

  35. Thank you guys for the answer about customizing kits. I have another question. Actually I prefer playing with my kits rather than just displaying them. But then I cannot resist the look of my RG Exia, whose armors keep popping off and not so suitable to play. Do you think gluing the armor pieces onto the frame would make a good replacement for a toy figurine? I really love kits as they are cheaper and the RG line looks marvelous.

  36. Just built an MG Freedom 2.0, which I got from HLJ, and painted it up, Customizing a kit has always come from inspiration for me. If I dont have inspiration I dont paint.

  53. Want to hear a horror story (spooky Halloween)?

    Back when I discovered Gundam model kits I was about 13 (about 15 years ago) and it was the Gundam Wing HGs. I didn’t know much about the hobby so it never occurred to me that you would have to use cutters and then sand/trim the excess. I would just bend and pull the parts off the runners.

    Just wondering, is there any information about new versions of old kits, like the Alex or the Physalis?

  54. great show guys

  55. Hello guys from Greece.
    My New favorite moment from now on will be the “Boldy Setsuna”:)
    I’ve been watching you a couple of years now and i hope that I’ll win a Kit
    because here are too expensive to buy and I want to start building.
    I also hope that one day Gunpla will be popular here too.
    Continue the good work and I wish one day to meet you up close.

  69. Bandai needs to stop milking the Unicorn Gundam and its 48 color variants and variations and give us the kit that we need and deserve. MG Char Zaku II ver. 3.0!

    Reply
  70. I so so soooo desire the Titanium Nu Gundam. I think I may have watched the episodes that featured it a few too many times. Don’t you scratch that beautiful runner Syd!!

    As an owner of 2 MG Unicorns I shudder at the thought of trying to care for a Titanium version of that polystyrene grenade.

    Anyway – I am only up to Ep 164… and like knowing that a major character dies on a show I love but not WHEN it happens… I am wondering when Ryan gets off’d & replaced. It’s like back when I cared about The Walking Dead but FOR REALS.

    Cheerio plastic masters.

  84. Hope you’ll review the One Piece Chopper Robos ,including the merge Giant Mecha Chopper.

    Another Rebake, based on the stickers, its face was entirely stickers this what i don’t like on previous Rebake but what i like with the Rebake was it’s Gimmick and now on Full City is it’s Weapon (Shield/Scissor).

    And oh, Bumblebee! You Go (YUGO/HUGO) with me.

  87. hello from the Philippines! question : do all 7-11 stores in Japan sell 7-11 1/144 gundam kits or are they only available on specific places, perhaps in Akihabara? are they sold like regular items or only in special occasions? is it possible that HLJ will include them in their online catalogue?

    thanks,
    Wil

  88. Bald Setsuna, that was too funny! I like the Yugo just because it’s so different. A suit starts looking like a suit after awhile, and this was a great change of pace. Me Likey.

  97. Hey Sid.

    So I must say that I actually started watching Gunpla TV since the beginning at around the start of October this year. I am on Episode 59 but I decided to watch the most current episode for this very reason. Giveaways. I love the show and I guess I will find out what happened to Ryan and welcome Todd . Anyways I do remember you building the bumblebee since I saw that around a week or two ago…Cool kit and hopefully I can get my hands on this. 🙂 I will continue to watch the episodes and hopefully get through them all. Its a bit tough to find the special episodes that are not numbered sometimes.

    Anyways sorry for the long message but keep up the great work.

  105. Great episode guys! Replying to the viewer’s comment, Gunpla to be is like building with LEGO and art combine together. Before I pick up any kit, I try to imagine what mods I might make on it or how to make it better. Gunpla is Freedom!
