  5. Ah, it’s good to have you guys back!

    That Macross kit really looked flimsy, but I guess Syd was right. Better for it to fall apart than break. ^^

  6. This Macross kit looks interesting. Cannot wait for Iron Blood orphan season 2.
    Can you guys compare the old 1/72 Macross kits in 2010 with this new one?

  7. Really impressed at how the transformation gimmick held up in the Macross kit. I would love to see Bandai release more complicated kits like these to showcase their engineering.

  14. Great episode guys!
    Very noticeable you had some time off and had a blast over in the US!!!
    Except for that poor Todd, tricking him into building that always up to no good Siegfried 😉
    Or should we cal him the Cesar, don’t know why 😀
    Maybe a good title for a movie: Planet of the Macros LOL

  15. Love the design of Macross Delta kits. I was looking through HLJ store and noticed that Tomy Tech is producing some Macross Delta kits at 1/144 scale; in particular, there is a set termed as 2 mode set. (http://hlj.com/product/TMT28015/Sci). What does “2 mode set” actually refers to? Robot and plane mode? Or Robot and Gerwalk? OR Gerwalk and Plane mode only?

  18. That Macross kit transformation looked almost as complicated as the MG Delta Plus and V2 ver Ka!

  22. Welcome back, guys. Of the new kits I may look into the Scramble and Shia Qan[t]. The Barbatos Lupus is most likely for season 2 what the original kit is to season 1, so I’m hoping for the mid-season upgrade to be something in line with the 6th form. If I did get a Lupus I’d also likely get the option kit with the mini-maces and auto-canons.

    Reply
  23. Psyched for the new IBO designs, but I think I’ll wait for some awesome 1/100 kits.

    Reply
  24. I sure do love me some Macross kits, I need to get one of those walkrie stands to go with that.

    Reply
  25. I wonder what the surprise kits will be, I’m so excited, I hope I win at least one lol

    Keep up the great work guys, I look forward to your videos every week.

    Reply
  26. i kinda agree, as much as I love the Macross kits, putting them together and transforming can be flimsy as heck

    Reply
  27. Loving the new IBO designs,and another great episode guy’s.

  28. Those new Build Fighters look awesome! Great episode guys!

  29. Good to see you guys made it back safe and sound. Hopefully you’ll come to New Zealand Comicon next year and give the gift of reasonably priced Gunpla 🙂

  30. Some say he builds life size cities with Pla-Plate, others say he didn’t transform the Macross kit correctly, all we know is, he’s called the Todd.

    Reply
  31. You guys missed a great Those Gundam Guys panel at AX. Luckily, I recorded it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qq9-AsFPDU

    Reply
  32. Watching Todd try to transform the kit made me cringe..too many falling parts 🙁 Then again, that is to be expected from a transforming kit!

    Reply
  33. I hope you guys had a fun time at the Anime Expo! I’ve been waiting patiently for the next episode of Gunpla TV, so it feels so good to see it up. I’ve seen the picture of Syd’s fast food on Facebook so many times that I had to go to McDonalds myself and pick up an Ebi burger, I enjoyed it.

    Don’t you mean “Hi-Nu people” Syd?( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    I’m really hyped for the Barbatos Lupus, it’s probably my new favorite Barbatos form, he looks even more like a knight in this form, and his red shoulderpads look awesome. The turquoise Graze is my new favorite Graze as well, as the new bulky design is awesome, I love them Ground type feet and I love the color turquoise, so he is going to be greeted with wide arms as well. Type A is obviously an upgraded Rebake. It looks a lot more bulkier, and that’s more fitting for the Gusion, but I sorta preferred the old Rebake more. The Hostile Mobile suit is unique to say the least, I like his head and torso, but the weird design of the limbs and their size turn me off, he reminds me of a hobbit/gnome, which isn’t my cup of tea.

    I am HYPED for the new BF OVA and all the kits. I’m definitely getting all of the new releases besides the Beargguy, could never get into that MS. But everything else looks absolutely awesome, and I love all of their designs.

    The new Gundam Local Type is something I am highly interested in. I always loved the Gundam Ground Type, and it’s clear that they’re related somehow. I love the visor, and am probably going to get it as well. The 1/100 Kimaris Trooper is cool too, but I think i’m going to get the HG instead. The Petit’gguys are meh, they’re recolors, but I was never a big fan of Beargguys, so that’s something.

    I’ve really, really been looking forward to the Siegfried’s review, because I think this may be my first Macross kit. Just by design alone, the Siegfriend Hayate Custom has already become my favorite Macross. Blue has always been my favorite color, and I love the sleek/angular design of the Siegfried. I also always had a knack for transforming things, be it complex and difficult MG transformations, or simple HG partsformations. Since the Macross is even more complex than a transforming MG, I think this will be a nice challenge. The stickers look like a living nightmare though, and is probably what is keeping me from pouncing on the kit, but honestly for a kit that has so many colors and already has a complex build to be able to transform into 3 modes, it’s completely understandable…and Todd…for the antenna…

    there’s something called Tamiya thin cement, and a small copper peg. <3

    I think this is going to be it when the time comes, i'm getting this as my first Macross kit hands down. It may be a nightmare to transform, have tones of falling parts, and is as fragile as an RG, but hey, all transforming Macross kits are as well, and this guy looks good. I'm definitely going to get an action base for him though, i'd be insane not too. I wonder if I would do a review of it when I get it, as I do Gunpla reviews after being inspired by Syd's Gaijin Gunpla blog, but this guy is going to be a nightmare to learn, take pictures of, and write about. XP

    I think I did my Top gear phrase wrong, and i'm going to come clean and say I have no idea what that phrase is about and decided to wing it. But to be honest I don't mind very much, i'll be waiting for your next episode!

    • You are correct. If you take a look at the model number of the Local type you’ll see its RX-78-01. The RX-78-01 was developed into the RX-78-2 and RX-79 (Ground type), so you could say it’s a prototype of it.

      Reply
      • In a way true. But if I remember, the RX-78-2 Gundam was developed from the RX-78-1 Prototype Gundam, so which came first? The RX-78-01? or the RX-78-1

    After seeing that review of the macross, I’m too scared to get one.

  40. I was very excited about the prospect of getting a Macross kit that transforms, but after seeing how fragile it is I’m now on the fence about getting one.

  48. Really like Macross kits but no room left for me to start getting them lol.

  49. Nice new Macross kits but since I paint them I’ll wait for future Hasegawa releases. Bandai Macross kits aren’t really meant to be painted since you’ll get lots of scratches and paint coming off when you transform them from one mode to another, true experience.

    Reply
  50. I see that many many of the new HG kits come with peg style hands now instead of proper trigger fingers. Do the 1/144 builders parts hands fit all the IBO and new HG kits? does the hand armor snap into them properly? Can you guys test them out? I’m interested in buying some since it looks like the hyaku shiki revive won’t have trigger finger hands

    Reply
    • After reading this comment, I managed to dig up that part. Are you planning to get the EFSF or the Zeon 1/144 builders parts hands? I have only got EFSF version; therefore, I can only comment on that one.

      Overall, the hands work for your HG. On the runner, you are given two different ball joint options. The larger one fits most recent HG kits i.e. Unicorn Gundam, GM II, etc while, the smaller ball joint is better for HG revive series and IBO i.e. Wing Gundam and Gundam Barbatos. Not using the given hand armor from this kit gives have various results. You will have to modify the armor part slightly to get it to fit.

  51. What you did for all the Todd entrance was quite nice well done.

    Reply
  52. Welcome back as it has been too long. In regards to the new Barbatos, the design is great and perhaps the name Lupus is foreshadowing some events of season 2. Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs, so maybe Tekkadan will fight their own comrades from the last season. Who knows, but it will make an interesting plot. Lastly, I can see someone custom building that new Bearguy into a Sailor Moon or the other Sailor Scouts.

  73. Transformable kits:the bane of my builder career

    Reply
  74. I ve built few of this kits. to be truth its not an easy kit. The instruction quite hard and the transformation is very difficult especially the full armor messiah because of all the armament. But its an injection kit. Its not suppose to be play but to display with proud. End result Bandai realy did a good job with macross kits but perhaps they would make the transformation a bit easier.

  81. Thanks for this episode guys! My brother (who builds Macross kits) will probably start building his Siegfried kit soon after he watches this episode. Considering that the Macross kit does not come with an action base, can I give him one of my spare Gunpla action base 2 or does it have to be a Macross specific display stand? The one Todd used looked similar to the action base 2 but I don’t recall seeing that adapter. Thanks again all at HLJ!
