  15. 1/100 Blue Destiny Unit 1 when? Efreet needs somebody to fight. Why, Bandai? WHYYYYYYYYYYY? They always leave these huge, obvious gaps in their lineups.

    And if there is a Zaku 3.0, Bandai shut up and take my money.

  35. The RE/100 Efreet makes me sad because it’s another RE kit that has those crappy HG hands. They gave the Nightingale the emotion manipulator hands(which they aren’t using enough of in MG kits), so why not the other REs? Make it happen Bandai, right meow!

    Reply
  36. Wasn’t expecting to be picked! Action base and a whole lot a extra parts for scratch building and kit bashing. I am pleased. Thanks guys!

  40. A bit disappointed that I didn’t win the Rinascita. Oh well, there’s always next time.

    That Efreet looks awesome, it’s a bit of a shame that it’s articulation isn’t great, but at least it still looks cool. Hoping that I get that Guntank, the denial is cool too I guess. XP

    Reply
  56. i see that you did a comparison of the Gouf r35 and the gouf revive, but Tod can you do a comparison with the gouf custom (http://hlj.com/product/BAN965503/Gun) articulation i think it is obsolete, it on look, in my opinion it look better then all. Great episode and thank you for the reviews

  94. Congrats to Ryan and another great episode. I was waiting for someone would make a Thunderbird reference and it came on smooth. The Shizuoka Hobby Show, what model kits that Bandai and other companies are coming out, I can’t wait? Just for now, I am waiting for the Iron Blooded Orphan’s Gundam Astaroth to be release and you guys doing a review on it. As always keep up the good work and stay awesome!

  102. Hahah, an episode is always better with a bit more Todd =D

    Really hoping to get the Denial if I get any of them, I already have the Try Burning Gundam and it would be fantastic to make a scene with them! Sorry Guntank, I was just never really that into you…

    Reply
  103. I still remember the SEXY grandaddy gundam.

    Reply
  104. Man, the Gouf R35 has a such a cool design. I think it’ll become the gateway into Zaku-style mechas for me. Welp, I figure I need to save up another 1275 yen then.

    Oh and if I’m selected, I’d appreciate the Denial. Unless the other person wants it since I have one, but my dog shredded my box for it which kills my collector’s soul and I don’t think I’ll ever repurchase the denial just for the box. It’s a great kit and all but I don’t think I’ll use any of it’s parts for any custom models, so it’d be a waste of prime nihon plastic.

    Reply
  105. cool ep guys i figured the new gouf would reuse the r35

    Reply
  106. love that efreet box art! gonna get the tunderbolt ver. ka for sure when it comes xD

    Reply
  107. It would be awesome to with that Origin kit!!!

    Also do you think they will ever make an MG Leo or Aries from the Gundam Wing series? I think it would be a cool addition.

    Reply
    • Leo is on the list of likely RE100s coming up. That’s probably the best we’re ever going to get. They’ve came through with the Efreet, so maybe we’ll get all of the suits in that one promo picture. If they go in order that they placed the suits on that picture, the next one will be GM Sniper II or Xi.

      Reply
  108. I love the original Zeonframes and I would lineup for a new MG Zaku V3.0 for sure. The last great was the Geara Doga. I am often looking at hlj to find the Zaku-type-kit of my choice, but they are all kind of aged.
    Actually how outdated is the PG Zaku, since BANDAI went a long way of developement since it came out?
    I not intend to build the same Gundam over and over again and end up with 10 different Zaku-II, or different types, wich are almost the same with just another weaponpack. But i absolutly have to have one.

    Reply
  109. Great episode guys, might be my imagineation but the Grimgerde kind of reminds me of the Enact from Gundam OO :p

    Reply
  110. I thought that Shizouka was during the last weekend of May so unfortunately I arranged my trip to Tokyo on the wrong dates, just missing the event so I’m really looking forward to your broadcast. In the mean time I hope that I can win the gun tank ^_^

  112. I’m definitely with Tedd on the Barbatos design, I was quite disappointed when they did that countdown teaser thing.

  113. Everybody is dreaming and talking about the Char’s Zaku II 3.0 while I’m here wishing and waiting that Bandai may gave us Z’Gok 2.0!!!

    Reply
  121. Hi guys,
    Great show thanks. Personally, I like the Gouf R35. Way much cooler than the revive and has 2 shields. Just for you Syd, I made a Canadian version of the Gouf R35 posted on the site. Just don’t know if you’ll be able to see it or not.

    If I win, may I ask for the RX-78-2 Revive poster behind your seat instead? I really wish to have the RX-78-2 poster.
    Thanks.

  144. Cann’t wait to get a grimgerde, it looks awesome. I am a. It concerned with the thunderbolt full armor gundam, though. The preview shots do not have the joint coverings on the elbows and knees. I thought that was what makes this version different from the regular full armor. Hopefully they will appear on the model when it is revealed at the hobby show later this month.

    Cheers

    Reply
  164. Hey Ryan, Syd and Todd, thanks for all the great shows you’ve done so far, especially the grade explanation ones as they helped me pick out my first gunpla kits, the HG Barbatos and Gusion Rebake. Sadly they weren’t from HLG, but after a bit of research its clear that not only do you have a great reputation, but you guys are cheaper overall than anyone else I can find for the UK, so all my orders will be with you guys from now on.

    Just got 2 questions for you guys and the community, for my next lot of kits I’d like to do a top coat and panel wash, I know Ryan really likes his enamel panel wash, but I was wondering if acrylic paint would work just as well if watered down enough, and if it does work which gives the better effect, enamel or acrylic?

    And probably more for Syd and Todd, for my next lot of gunpla I’ve decided to go with a few kits from the 00 line, so I was thinking the Exia and the 00 Raiser in HG…But they do come in RG…the price is good and they look doable with my skills…and I really do like the look of the RG QuanT…is it worth jumping from HG to RG if you are confident in your skills to do it?

    Also send my thanks to Brian from Boss Builds, he managed to answer the question I was struggling with on how to layer different types of paints/top coats on ep4 of boss builds, I had been struggling with that for days!

    Reply
    • So far there are three RG kits from 00. The GN-001 Gundam Exia was released in April 2014, the GN-0000 + GNR-010 OO Raiser followed in April 2015 and the GNT-0000 00 Qan[T] will be released this month.

      Reply
      • Oh I already knew about the RG kits (although I had hoped the Qan[t] would be release near the beginning of the month), my question was whether it would be worth making the jump from having only done 2 HG kits, to doing 3 RGs. I’ve actually already gone an ordered the Exia and 00 Raiser in RG and preordered QanT, but thanks for replying anyway.

        Reply
  165. Great episode as always, looking at the Grimgerde it seems like its too stocky? or just not thin and ‘sharp’ enough, either way cant wait for next time.

  169. Great Episode guys, at the moment I’m in the middle of building my first PG, the red frame astray. It will look awesome once finished. Would be great if they announce a zaku II char version 3.0, but maybe there might be more 2.0 kits as there are a lot of them that need an upgrade.

    Reply
  170. Great, now I have to decide between the HG and 1/100 Grimgerde.

    I’m also looking at the Gundam the Origin as my 1st MG, even though it’s slightly more expensive than the Freedom 2.0. I just love those accessories and gimmicks, and I don’t have a representation of the Gundam yet.

    Reply
  171. No one’s gonna comment on the fact that Syd has a twin?????

    Reply
  172. Congratulations to Ryan! times two!

    Really love the look of the Grimgerde though. Also hoping for a MG Freedom 2.0 review soon!

    Reply
  173. Great episode! The 1/100 Grimgerede looks very slick and probably they’re setting a higher standard for other ibo 1/100 kits starting with this
