  1. Thanks for the gift! guys may you always build gunpla tv!

  2. Hey guys, gonna be building the PG Strike Freedom tomorrow. Do you know if you will be getting the HMM Gojulas The Ogre back in stock soon. Wasn’t able to afford it when it came out and so I missed it.

  3. I have waited all year for this video and now it has finally arrived, jk. I had to keep myself entertained by watching older episodes haha. All and all, Happy New Years guys! Do you have any new years resolutions?

  4. Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the new episode for the new year; any insider hints on when the MG GM Sniper II White Dingo colors will be out?

    Which kits are you both looking forward to that has been listed for release this year?

    Cheers from frosty Canada!


  5. Great work as always syd, i may look to get both thunderbolt ka’s

  6. Yay! A new one 😀

  7. Another episode pf Gunpla TV is another episode of fun fun.

    I’m hype for Hekija. So far the hollow parts on the feet are disappointing, but otherwise it looks pretty good, i’m definitely a fan so i’ll definitely have to get one. Lunagazer too, Stargazer and Hyaku Shiki are two of my favorite MS, so I definitely have to get their baby. The Guncannon combo set is one i’m getting two of. I want both variants as they both look great. The Unicorn is something i’ll have to pass on, i’m not interested personally.

    Even though it’s a kit we’ve technically built, i’m still getting it. I’ve always wanted a Char’s Zaku I so i’ll have to buy this, I hope we get the other variant soon though, i’d like that one more.

    FM Vidar has got my hyped. Compared to the HG, it just destroys that thing past redemption. It’s got the gimmicks, less stickers and detail alone make it superior, so much to love about the kit. It’s going to be the Vidar kit i’m getting and I won’t regret it.

    The MG Psycho Zaku looks so damn sick. I love how it looks, but I will admit i’m not a huge fan of how the vinyl tubing looks. I feel like the HG did looks tubing better, but it’s not a deal breaker. I’m glad they used the Zaku 2.0 frame, it’s a great one. Sad he can’t hold his bazooka super well though. Still, i’ll have to get it, especially with how big it is.

  8. Since the 1/100 IBOs are this well made, I hope they will make MGs too!

  9. Do you guys prefer smaller or bigger kits?

  10. Another great show. I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on how best to handle the vinyl tubing on the head, waist and leg (not the actual leg itself). Many people that reviewed the psycho zaku have commented that they ended up splitting the vinyl tube along the seams. Thanks.

  11. ouch Todd you should have showed us how the pistols of the Vidar are stored on the front skirts, that’s a huge improvement over the HG

  12. You could put in an entire meal on the fuel tank of that Psycho Zaku. Oh also I’ll be getting my package later from HLJ. ANyone here on the Philippines got theirs delivered directly to their home?

  13. Todd, careful with that Lunagazer: an early review is not positive toward the materials used, and there aren’t any included beam saber effect parts!

    Could you see if it’s possible to combine the frame parts for the Ti Unicorn? Maybe it’s possible to show it transitioning between the modes.

    FM (NG) Vidar is ready to Attack on Titan!

  14. Happy New Year, guys. Thanks for another great episode. Syd is the Gunpla Shogun but Todd has some deep knowledge as well. Much respect. Really loving all the releases from Thunderbolt and Origin.

  15. Great episode as usual guys! Happy new year as well! FM Vidar looks cool, that hg zaku looks cool too, and geez, the mg Ver Ka Psycho Zaku is a monster. Where’s the new announcement video?

  16. Wait did I miss something? Didn’t they say there was going to be a big announcement on the website at the same time the video went up?

    Not a fan of the Psycho Zaku I would rather buy 3 normal Zakus for the same price.

  17. Well great show guys a shame i didn’t win that beaut of a suit though.

  18. Hell or high water wont stop me from Plamo!

  19. Been a while since i saw an episode of gunpla tv.. Been watching you previous episodes… Made me think hows ryan doing now?

  20. I like the looks of the vidar, except for the color. Want to see some customs with a different color scheme

  21. Love the Vidar with the exception of the weirdly arched feet. I’d definitely want to replace those with a more traditional style.

  22. I have a question, but not exactly related to this episode.
    i think in December 2015 there was some announcement about RE/100 Kshatriya kit.
    Do you have any info about this release?

  23. Happy New Years you guys!

    Good god, that Psycho Zakus’ Backpack :0

  24. that vidar seriously looks sexy

  25. That giant backpack… Might as well used a Tresemme shampoo bottle, lol.

  26. Great show guys. Thanks.
    Wow, didn’t know that the Ver. Ka Unicorn discontinued!
    That’s an interesting Zaku I.

  27. That Vidar is really something. Looking forward to get mine.

  28. Well, for me that back pack was the highlight of the episode!
    One of the things I really appreciate about gunpla tv is the comparisons! thank you very much for showing the differences with Zaku II 2.0. Hmmm, it was nice day dreaming about winning the Sazabi.

  29. happy new years guys the vidar and zaku both look amazing

  30. That Psycho Zaku looks awesome. Funny story actually. It’s in my private warehouse until I get back from Japan of all places. SO I’ve been walking around seeing Psycho Zakus on the shelves of every hobby store and I have to wait til I leave to have mine haha.

  31. Thanks GunplaTV and RNG!

    I like the psycho zaku especially that shade of red but I’m not a big fan of the bulky backpack. It would be cool if they made a standalone version or better yet, the 3.0 Char’s Zaku II!

  32. That Zaku is overkill. When will Bandai get sexy amd give us an MG Serpent Custom?

  33. Great show guy’s and great way to start the year.
    The new Thunderbolt kit looks huge. And display room would be the only issue.
    One question do you think Bandai will bother with MG kits first the IBO line? As the standard 1:100 kits are so well designed. Still after this series I wonder where they will go from there.
    Have great year fellas and welcome back from your break.

  34. I like that little red thingy hanging by that magnificent backpack.

  35. what a wonderful episode. i love red gunpla.

  36. Hey guys when does ibo option sets 8 and 9 go up for pre-order? Syd check out todd’s youtube channel.

  37. Psycho Zaku!!!!
