  2. As much as Astaroth look really good, why I do get the feeling that Barbatos will not be showing as much as in season 1?
    And regarding FA-78 Ver. Thunderbolt Ver. KA, when will you guys show off the glory of the kit? since the kit is available for Pre-Order now at hlj.com

  3. I cant wait for a 1/100 scale Astaroth!

  4. Nice video as always! I wonder, so what is the difference between the Original GM Thunderbolt and the Anime version? I can’t really tell.

  5. First Congrats for Ryan and good to have you back.

    LA Expo… Oh man I would like to join but in LA… =,=!
    That’s too far…

    For the RG Sinanju, I Guess I would like to have that. But I am more interested if Bandai made RG for Unicorn or Full Armor Unicorn Full Transform in RG Teehee. But I guess Full Armor Unicorn will be in P-Bandai.

    Anyway Great Episode as always! 😀 Keep going till 300 eps. 😀

  13. Awww, Syd! You remembered my comment on ManowaR but you forgot to add it to the list? Now I’m sad… lucky me, I have the new DOOM OST running right now, so I’ll manage. But now I feel like I deserve some kind of compensasion, you know? You’d better remember, this time, or I’ll have HeatMetal count up your sins!

    Good episode, it’s good to see Ryan survived.

  15. That Astaroth looks beast!

  16. I think Todd was referring to the Spinner Rodi. Still waiting for Bandai to announce a kit for that….

    Reply
  17. I think the next RE will the Bawoo and I think I’ll get that Astaroth…

  18. Can’t wait to see the Gyan and Zaku in the next episode. Sieg Zeon!

  19. Congrats, Ryan.

    Someday Bandai will figure out a way to make a long, flat buster sword look not quite as silly. Do we have hope for RG Quanta?

    The new Doom mashes the Nostalgia Button.

  20. The new ibo Gundam looks awesome

    Reply
  21. I feel like Bandai had a hard choice deciding whether the Hyaku Shiki or the Unicorn would be the 200th HGUC.
    One one hand the Hyaku Shiki is “type 100”, a milestone in its own name.
    On the other hand, the 100th HGUC was the very first Unicorn, I wouldn’t complain if we got the same kit 2 milestones in a row 😛

  22. Maybe that yellow look better in person than it does on TV but I have to say that I am not a fan of it.

  23. will you do a live build of new figurise dbz?

  24. Great show, cant wait for RG Sinanju !!

  25. Yay! Ryan’s back on Gunpla TV! 😀

    I have been really waiting for that Gyan Revive for far too long, I need that thing. I wish I could go to the Anime Expo, but 1. Have to revise for Exams, 2. I live in Hong Kong, and 3. I’m saving that money for Gunpla (BIRTHDAY RG SINANJU HYYYPE).

    Todd, it’s not a Man Rodi, it’s a different mobile Suit called the “Spinner Rodi” and I want a kit of it. ;-;

    I actually prefer the asymmetrical look as opposed to the symmetrical look, it’s what makes the Astaroth Special. I like the design of the Thunderbolt GM, but i’m sorta debating whether to get it or not due to the hollow parts and static arms. I assume it’s to save money but it’s a bit of a turn off.

    I’m a huge fan of Kamen Rider, and that kit would seem cool, but I would have nowhere to put it. XD

    Still hoping I win it though. <3

  29. Yay, Ryan’s Back!!!

  37. Great show as usual and glad to see Ryan back! I can’t wait for later today as I will be getting my GM thunderbolt and the Astaroth in the mail for a long weekend of gunpla building. I would love to meet you guys in LA; however, I don’t have enough spare holiday days left after booking my for a trip to Europe(insert crying face here). I will be there in spirit.

    Reply
  38. Haha welcome back Ryan. How many years will it be for the Ligar. I gave up seeing the Falcon finished, and now since Ryan v2.0 and v2.1 having a screaming contest at your place, this will also take while. But great to have you back in the show. Talking about the show, if you are going to do a livebuild Syd, when will it be announced? Would love to join.

  41. Oooh! I spy a Kamen Rider Double, Heat Metal! I’m really up for that, but only because I know someone else who’d really like it as he’s a massive Double fan. Looking forward to the 00 Qant next episode, it’s pretty awesome!

  52. Glad to see that your back Ryan, it felt a bit strange to only have Syd and Todd on the show, and make sure to take care of yourself you sounded a bit tired near the end.

    However Todd, Syd, you guys are really trying to take it out on my wallet, 2 HG Astaroths for a “complete look” version. And your talk of putting the Thunderbolt Full Armour Gundams backpack on the GM, made me think of a mash up with the Full Armour Gundams backpack, the Powered GM Cardigan, possibly the Powered Arms Powereder option pack and some miniguns from the Heavy Arms or its custom form, for the Full Armour Powered GM Cardigan All Arms ver.

    But I’ve got the Exia and 00 Raiser RGs coming from you to do first, which I guess I’d better do before doing something crazy.

  57. Glad you have you back Ryan!

    After watching the Thunderbolt anime I really hope they do an MG of the psycho zaku, He kinda felt more like the protagonist than the FA.

    You guys should go to a con on the east coast of the US, Gencon or Pax!

  61. I wish I could go to AX, but I don’t have enough money to go to, let alone enough to take a trip within my own state right now. Maybe I could do some Gunpla commissions. I hear those bring in good amounts of money.

  65. Great show! welcome back Ryan and congratulation. =]

    Reply
  66. I have noticed that lately every new mold for HG kits have lego-style peg hands instead of trigger fingers. The hyaku-shiki is the revive I’ve been looking forward to since they first announced them but from the pictures and videos I’m very disappointed that Bandai might be using the cheap style hands on it. what are your guys’ thoughts on the hands?
