  2. And the winner for this week’s giveaway is ….. Me !

    Going back to the episode, not a big fan of that chicken feet on Julia’s suit. I’d probably pose it in flight mode on the stand when I get it.

    Look way cooler that way

  4. New episode new fun!

    I’m personally very excited for the new HGUC AE Zeta, i’m very curious to what’s special about it and what Bandai have done with this line. I’ve always wanted a Zeta but they all had a certain problem or more that kept me from jumping on it, and as a person who doesn’t mind partsforming, this one is likely going to be the one for me! I’m very excited for this one and can’t wait to see how it is! I want the Gundam Vual so bad, it’s asymmetry, it’s black and purple colorscheme, and it’s alien-like design, I love the way this looks and I have to have one, no questions asked.

    The new pink Petit’gguy is interesting, i’ll probably get one just for Bear’gguyception, and because I do like the shade of pink here, so i’ll likely own one for myself. I like the way the Kimaris Vidar looks, but I really don’t like the colorscheme, not a complete turn off, so i’ll have to think about getting one of my own! I’m likely not getting that Freedom 2.0 special set though, i’m not a huge fan of the busts, and I don’t really want one, so the normal one will easily do for me.

    While I wasn’t initially a fan of the Lupus Rex at all, it’s definitely growing on me when I look more at the FM, and i’ll have to consider getting one eventually if this keeps growing, and this kit looks great. Reginlaze Julia also looks pretty sick, i’m a huge fan of the way she looks and i’ll have to get that kit for myself too! I can’t deny Julieta’s MS, and that kit specifically looks great, just wish a few of the parts weren’t hollow, but it seems that Bandai have been doing a lot of that recently, which is a real shame.

  13. I’m really not sure which barbatos I want. I want the 6th form for the mace, because I can turn it to the original anyway. but I kinda like the lupus too.
    … but I hate duplicates.
    what do.

  14. that FM Lupus REx looks awesome, hope i can one for myself

    Reply
  15. the more they bulk up barbatos, the more i appreciate its 1st form, ironic. and have you guys heard about the new 1:1 scale unicorn gundam in odaiba? could it be the promotion for a rg unicorn?! that would be awesome

    Reply
  16. Finally ordered my 1st Perfect Grade, a PG Unicorn and guess whats announced this past week, a 1:1 scale Unicorn.

    Still a bit disappointed that it doesn’t seem like we’ll be getting a 1/100 Full City, at least not any time soon.

  17. If I had to pick my favorite series, it would be Zeta because of Kamille “a man’s name” Bidan and Quattro “definitely not a Char” Bajeena. I also really enjoyed the original Gundam 0079. Where these old shows lacked in animation quality they more than make up for with their old-school charm with some unintentional comedy.

  18. Nice kits todd and sid i love the barbatos lupus rex….. more power to hobbylink tv!!!!

    Reply
  19. A big problem with the Rex is that Mace-sama. It’s so big, but the joints in Rex’s arms aren’t stiff enough to hold it up. The shaft is also flexier than it should be. At the moment I’m favouring the HG Lupus, for price as well. Bandai had better come out with an improved final version, or I might get the Bael instead (although HG or FM I have no idea).

    Also, that poor, unfortunate Helmwege, standing by until the very end. They could’ve at least had him use the Shock Horns.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what the judges think about the Playing With Plamo entries. They all look awesome! I do not envy the judges their task.

    According to ‘Flying Witch,’ the fox says ‘woof!’ Time to put that whole thing to bed.

    Does that poster mean there’s a ‘Frame Arms Girls’ OVA anime?

  22. Hey guys, good episode. I was wondering if the HMM Gojulas The Ogre kit from Kotobukiya was a limited release, or will it be available once more at a later date? keep up the good work and remember, “gunpla is freedom… Strike Freedom. hahaha”

    Reply
  23. ACCELERATE EVOLUTION YEAH!!!! Bandai always finds new ways to explode our minds and guys you are awesome with these gunpla collections you have and of cousre the giveaways.

    Reply
  24. Accelerate evolution – this year , revive – last year ..

    — i think there is still 1 more barbatos form for this 2nd season IBO.

    Reply
  25. i’ve been re-watching reginlaze julia in ibo and never noticed the claw arm thing.

    Reply
  26. Something tells me it won’t be the last Barbatos. Great show guys!

    Reply
  27. I’m very excited for the new HGUC AE Zeta. Also I heard that the 1/100 Rex has some loose limbs rendering it from holding its giant mace is that true?

    Reply
  28. Oddly enough I like the original Barbatos better than the other since its proportions are the closest ones to the RX-78.

    RIP 1:1 you will be missed. Not sure how I feel about it being replaced by the Unicorn.

    Reply
  29. I’m excited to see you build that new Kimaris, i think it’s the first kimaris thats really spoke to me if you don’t count the Vidar

    Reply
  30. Really surprised that even the 1/100 Lupus Rex don’t come with yellow claws. Thought only the 1/144 was like that. I wasn’t interested in the Reginlaze Julia until watching this episode.

  31. 2 things

    • Thanks for mentioning this!

  32. Is that a Frame Arms Girl poster!?

    Reply
  33. I’m digging the proportions of the 1/100 rex compared to the HG counterpart. Keep up the good work guys! HLJ fow life!

  34. Hi Syd,

    I’d like to submit more than 8 pictures for the Playing with Plamo competition. Is there any way this can be made possible?

    Thanks

    Reply
  35. I honestly don’t like the Lupus Rex’s and Kimaris Vidar’s looks.

    Reply
  36. Kimaris vidar honestly looks like a downgrade. When they said take off vidars camo, i was like what camo? If anything, kimaris vidar is teh camo and vidar is the final variant. i forgot the person but there was one guy who made an awesome representation of kimaris vidar. Much more sleek and more menacing.

  37. Is Anime Expo a go for you guys this year?

    Reply
  38. I wish there would be more variants to kits other than the Barbatos! Since the Mg ZZ Gundam ver.ka is coming, I hope there will be an MG Tryon 3. MG versions of the Beargguys would be awesome too because there is a pretty old MG Acguy!

    Reply
  39. As much as I love you guys, I was struggling to get a good look at that Frames Arms Girl poster the whole episode! “Move more to the left, argh cmon!”.

    Reply
  40. Todd’s favourite series is Build Fighters?! Yay! I’m not the only one 😀

    Reply
  41. You guys are just awesome!! Missing Ryan not being on the show! BRING HIM BACK LOL.

    Reply
  42. Really liked Build Fighters it was just fun.

    Reply
  43. I can’t wait for gumdam Providence and the rest of the march release kits.

    Reply
  44. Other than working pistons I don’t really see what Bandai can do to make an MG Barbatos feasible

    Reply
  45. Rex means king in latin… As a huge fan of Jurrasic park (original movie still the best one by far), I find it hilariously odd that I only now just learned that. and on a Gundam show no less

    Reply
  46. Kira Yamato is the best pilot!

    Reply
  47. That Reginlaze Julia has a really good design.

    Reply
  48. I love Zakus!

    Reply
  49. Nothing against the IBO anime, but I hope to see less Barbatos gundams with this, it never appealed to me xD

    And also, THE AWESOME NEWS ABOUT 1:1 SCALE UNICORN AAAAAHHH!!! I was sad to see RX-78-2 go, but this is a great compromise!

    Reply
  50. I have to agree, big feet are better. Things with big feet less trouble standing on their own then small feet.

  51. Who is sexy?

    Reply
  52. rex looks sweet

    Reply
  53. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of the barbatos. at very least they’ll probably go back and make forms 2-5. also GIVE ME DAT ZAKU PLZ

    Reply
  54. Nice episode. Would love to see that Zaku I show up on my doorstep. Origin is great. Todd’s Barbatos collection looked good. 6th Form did tried to stage dive but missed the edge of the table. Syd managed to get me to like the Julia. I do like the black and white color scheme. Looks good. The Vual looks like that donut shop employee who fell in the vat. All good. Thanks guys!

  55. All hail the HGAE Zeta!!! Just finished building my MG Zeta 2.0.

    Reply
  56. Hi guys, nice to see all the 1/100 Barbatos together! regarding julia long legs, pretty interesting pigeon feet and way to stand! ha!

    Reply
  57. Another great episode guys!Love the Barbatos Lupus Rex Design. Its like a hybrid of Gundam and Evangelion. Also love Reginlaze Julia, hopefully Bandai release the 1/100 version.

    Reply
  58. Looking forward to the new Zeta.

    Reply
  59. Reginlaze is pretty sexy

    Reply
  60. Another great episode. Still not sure about the Reginlaze, maybe it is the character who pilots it that is pushing me away from getting it.

    Reply
  61. The 6th form collapse was so perfectly timed after that deadpan joke it almost looked planned.

    Reply
  62. Zaku!

    Reply
  63. i need to make the reginlaze look omre like a chinese dragon. perhaps some red

    Reply
  64. Can’t wait for the new HGUC Zeta gundam…

    Reply
  65. You guys are showing off fancy new kits while I’m sitting here building an HGUC GM… I’m gonna use this kit to practice modifying proportions and painting.
