Gunpla TV – Episode 211 – 1/100 Kimaris Trooper – HG Gundam Local Type Reviews!

Kits featured in this episode:
 
1/100 MG Full Armor Gundam Ver.Ka (GUNDAM THUNDERBOLT Ver.)

  27. I was watching the episode and as soon as Todd started talking about his 1/100 Kimaris Trooper my doorbell rang with my 1/100 Kimaris Trooper and MG Full Armour Thunderbolt Gundam arrived.
    Whether or not it was a sign from “The Todd” himself I started on the Kimaris right away!

  54. Can’t wait to see the Full Armour built! Really want the kit myself but with the import taxes I’d have to pay I’m not sure if it’s worth it yet. Also, the Turn X! I already have the MG Turn A with the Moonlight Butterfly expansion, having the Turn X to go along with it would be amazing!

    Keep up the good work guys!

  63. The 1/100 MG Full Armor Gundam Ver.Ka (GUNDAM THUNDERBOLT Ver.) is gorgeously awesome, though saying the name a couple times fast would probably make me straight pass out. Can’t wait to buy one from you guys, just gotta wait on that paycheck!

    The Turn X is so freaking awesome, too. Looks like one hell of a panel-lining job!

  69. They need to make more kits with big lances. Rule of cool dammit, who cares if it’s practical!

    Reply
  70. Oh my god that MG FA Gundam Thunderbolt Ver. Ka looks sexy as hell. The sheer amount of bulk, power and dakka put into this thing can be called mech porn in my book. The Kimaris Trooper is one of my favorite kits, but I personally prefer the regular Kimaris more just due to it’s bulky design and awesome shoulderpads. I love them both though, and i’m probably going to get them both in HG form (already have the Kimaris). But whoo weh when I saw that lance, my god it’s just so large, long and streamlined with those boosters to help thrust the actual lance into the enemy…

    …now that I think about it. Ryan would love this thing… ( Ν‘Β° ΝœΚ– Ν‘Β°)

    The Gundam Local Type was something I was quite interested in, I love the looks of Origin kits and this would be the first Gundam from the line. Also, I really like the Gundam Ground Type, and since the Local Type looked so similar to the ground type, I was instantly interested. I agree that the markings really help elevate the look. The Local Type looks quite bland from a straightbuild, and panel lining/decaling would make him look a lot better. Good thing I always panel line and always put on clear stickers. I like the shield a lot, not only does it store the beam sabers for you if you want to equip it, but it can also be planted on the ground similar to the Gundam Ground Type’s shield, and act as some cover.

    Syd, that’s not the Gundam X, that’s the Turn X, which isn’t a Gundam. I am a commenter and I correct mistakes that I see. Beep boop.

  77. The Kimaris Trooper and the RX-78-1 get almost the same screentime before they get pwned. Poor them.

    Pokemon Go is weird and imprecise. The avatar doesn’t always move, or it moves when you don’t, and it’s hard to tell where a Pokemon actually is. I don’t have a data plan, so I only play over wifi, and I play because the library where I work is a PokeStop.

  78. I still dont like the Kimaris! i’ll never will! on the other hand, UC suits FTW!
    That local type is growing on me and what’s not to be said about the FA gundam from thunderbolt.

    Reply
  105. Gotta love Bandai for throwing some low key rep out for fans of the 08th MS Team. The design of that new HG local type gundam is right up my alley; bump it up to MG status for some enhanced articulation and detail and I’d grab that faster than a backhand slap from Bright Noa himself.

    on that side note, tho…
    time to go re-watch me some Turn A now; been too long, and the X demands its tribute

  106. The Gundam MSD Local Type is very similar to the Federation mobile suits use in the Mobile Suit Gundam: The MS 8th Team story.

  109. Hi guys… what will be the future of MG’s? I have seen a lot of 1/100 lately but very few MG. Not that the IBO and RE aren’t great but I think Bandai is slowing the pace of MG’s.

    Great show!

  125. Long time no comment.

    Instead of giving away kits every week and focusing mostly on Bandai and Gundam, could you build other kits from Kotobukiya/Hasegawa/Plum/Max Factory/etc., and then re-list the built kits on HLJ as special mark-down items (the same way you do B-Grade damaged items)? Or you could even sell them as mark-UP items with like a “Certified Built by Syd/Lindsay/etc.” autograph or something. I dunno.

    I know some of those kits aren’t produced in nearly the same numbers and/or frequency as Gundam, so it would allow you to show them on video while still getting them to customers.

    Just a thought. I’m mostly just here for the Turn X anyway. πŸ˜›

  154. Wow! So glad to be back after a while and seeing brand new episodes for me to indulge in! I have a question: Can you please do a review on the P Bandai Waterproof Gundam when it is released? I, along with quite a few people, are curious as to whether the Waterproof Gundam is just a remold of the Local Type Gundam with a ton of stickers or a new mold with good part separation. Thanks! Great show as always and I’m looking forward to more! πŸ™‚

  164. When I first started building I didn’t really like the TurnA gundam. i always thought the Head looked a little silly to me, like it had a mustache. after i saw the mg kit and the turn X gundam it started growing on me. I still have not seen the Turn A movie, but its on my list of things to watch.

  168. Hey Syd and Ryan, great Episode as always. Love the MG RX-78 Tbolt Ver Ka, I just ordered it and I’m super stoked to be able to build a new kit close to the same time. Keep up the the awesome content. I have a question for you guys. I was rewatching old episodes from the beginning and was hoping if we could do another Syd Top 5 Master Grade, and a viewers choice so Syd can build it please. Also maybe A Todd Top 5 too. Thanks!!

    • We redid the Top 5 kits in episode 200. Check out how things have changed in the years since we first did it. Enjoy the Tbolt. It’s amazing!
