  14. I use YouTube to watch too o.ob I’m not sure if this is asked before but does top coating the kit for Playing with Plamo still place the kit in the beginner category?

  19. On the topic of standing on plastic, one thing i can stand by (#lamepun) is the next worst thing than stepping on legoes is a gundam….

    Was posing my Kyrios when it fell over when i turned to get some thing, took a step back and I hurt my very soul more than my foot. Needless to say its now ‘battle damaged’

    P.S appreciate the clarification on the rules, now i can go ahead and order my kit.

  21. Can’t wait for my GM sniper II to arrive, its been a long while since Bandai made a MG grunt suit and it is most welcomed.

  22. Oh My Goodness!!! I would love to get that machine!

  23. MGS kits are great, help a mate out!

  24. Lovin the Unicorn. I’m not even a bit mad that Bandai keeps releasing new and different versions of the Unicorn

  31. New episode! I might go for the beginner category in the competition but I don’t think I have any ultra-impressive kits that would help me win. Oh well, the spirit is in entering. I’m thinking of getting an IBO kit so I can do my first detailing job with some gundam markers.

    MG GM Sniper II got a lot of hype and it seems like a pretty great kit. Sadly though, I wasn’t part of that train, more in the salt train, because I had bought the Robot Damashii only a week before it’s announcement. Oh well, maybe i’ll get the P-Bandai White Dingo. I was interested in the Lupus DX until I found out the Isarabi and Mobile Worker were completely grey. That turned me off instantly unfortunately. The HG GM Ground Type is a must have though, I need that thing quickly.

    Lunagazer doesn’t seem to be very popular, but rest assured it can get all the love it needs from me. Being the baby of the Stargazer and Hyaku Shiki, this kit is an instant must buy for me. Excited to get mine one day.

    The Guncannon is also a must have for me, I love Guncannons and I love Origin kits, and this guy just looks sick. I might actually get 2 to have both of them on display! I love the way it looks and I love everything from the Origin line so far.

    Honestly i’m not very interested in the Titanium Finish MG Unicorn. Even with the Twin Psychoframe, does not help the nubs and it just makes the kit more expensive than it already was. Wouldn’t mind building a christmas Unicorn if given the chance but i’m not going to buy this one intentionally.

  40. Still not sure if I’m gonna enter the contest or not, I’ll decide when my current order from HLJ is gonna arrive. For now, I’m really unsure if I have the time or not.

    And oh man! The Sahelanthropus as a give-a-way! Now that would be cool to display on the shelf!

  41. that selantropus-thing is in 1/100 scale? where are the gunpla girls?

  42. So, how do we get a Lunagazer Gundam? Well, when a Hyaku Shiki and Stargazer love each other very much…

  48. Those nub marks X_X, bundai need to consider what kit to make a Titanium finish before making it. plus don’t we have enough unicorn gundam kits already, last time i counted we had 14 unicorn kit (not including banshi or phoenix).

    not to complain. but there are other kits that could use a Titanium finish.

    Quick follow-up question: my nephew and niece don’t have customer IDs. Would they be able to enter separately from me, or do they need to register and make their own purchases (with parental assistance)?

  74. Thanks for the rule clarifications. That is what I thought the rules were, but the site stated that the kit had to be bought from HLJ. In either case, I am good.

  75. What kit do you want with Titanium finish?

    Reply
  76. sounds naughty to say but I still havent bought a unicorn kit haha. one day i will.
    would love that metal gear kit

    Reply
  77. For a HG, that GM ground type’s runners looks amazing, since there here are so many places for panel lining. I can’t wait to get mine in the mail this week.
    Bandai has really stepped up their game recent years. Here are some of the things I noticed and liked:
    1: New kits’ manual have both English and Japanese text.
    2: Better gate placement, so numb marks are not too visible.
    3: Using universalize poly-caps for the joints; great for easy kit bashing.
    4: Almost a full inner frame for the HG IBO kits.
    5: A higher degree of detail in the new HG kits.
    6: HG Accelerate Evolution hints we might get a fully transformable HG Zeta Gundam. We have to see in April 2017.
    All and all, it is a great time to be a gunpla fan!

  84. Haha where is that guy who told everybody.. the mainkit has to be from HLJ? I want to charge him my express-deliverycosts…

    Reply
  85. Will this be the winning comment? I guess I’ll find out on the next episode. by the way That unicorn looks nice. I think it would look better with blue clear parts as far as the overall look with the titanium white body goes. The red just looks a little to “pinkish” for me. I know that this show is for gunplay(gundams), but maybe you could have a segment for Macross or other sci fi kits. Just a thought.

  86. As much as i love the design of the unicorn gundam i’ve got to say it’s a pretty terrible master grade.

  88. At first I liked the Lungazer + Stargazer backpack, but now that I’ve seen it in the vid…it feels like the backpack is a bit too high. Still great though.

  104. Damn, that finish looks awesome, especially on the head. Just sent out a big order from HLJ, including the Sniper, HG Origin Char’s Zaku II, and the MG Unicorn OVA Ver. I’ve been wanting it for so long, can’t wait!

    Need me that Salalalapus kit.

  105. Metal Gear!!!!

    Reply
  106. Now that is one pretty Unicorn kit. I have to admit that those Origin kits are getting better and better. I just want to see more MGs from the series! The sniper also makes me super happy – since I enjoy mostly grunt suits and exclusively Common Era time-line kits (the original time-line). Yep I am that old!

    Reply
  107. Hi Guys!
    The Titanium Unicorn looks great and is something I hope to get. Also,that MG GM Sniper would look good painted in some custom colours.
    But after watching Todd’s presentation I think the best HG kit there was that Stargazer. Guess some old kits are still good-looking.

    Reply
  108. Hi Syd and Tod, could you talk about the new Star Wars Bandai kits?
    I know that HLJ can not sell them outside of Japan but they still arouse great interest.

    Thanks.

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

    BTW. I prefer watching episode here, because you see all those pictures of the kits.

  129. I always have wonder … Why does the Gunpla boxes don’t have any seal or plastic to secure the contents? Amazingly I have never received a Gunpla box with missing contents even when they have traveled across the world. Is there some Bandai magic that keeps the content all together?

    I remember my old Revell kits having protective plastic on the outside box but not my Gunpla kits.

  132. it may be a long shot,
    but Bandai releasing an MG GM Sniper II may mean we will have an MG GM Striker. hopefully.
    that’ll be sweet.

    great episode guys.

    Reply
  133. Is that unicorn panel-lined or not? Is it because of the titanium finish which gives it a panel-lined look? By the way, those Guncannons sure looks great.

    Reply
  134. I could use a second Sahelanthropus….

    Reply
  135. That Stargazer is an oldie but still a goodie. (Also such a good-looking design on its own, and way more inspirational than Gundam typically is. The name, the story, “Voiture Lumiere”… I love this mobile suit so much.)

    1/100 kit when, Bandai!?

  152. shame the lunergazer doesn’t com with all the parts for the hyaku shiki. if it did I would buy it and build it with the hyaku shiki parts to make the byaku shiki. heck bandai could have advertised that in a similar way to the gun-cannon twin set with the whole “one kit two, options gimmick” tube

    Also I watch gunpla TV on youtube. #rebel4life
