Gunpla TV


  1. Funny that the Gold Frame is from the Blitz Gundam . For a Gold Gundam, it was from Scrap.

  2. Great show guys keep up the awesome

  3. Love the show guys, zeta me up please!!

  4. Would love to get that zeta and make it into the white unicorn of amuro

  5. My life sucks and I need to win something so gimme that Zeta…

  6. HORI SHEET it’s ZETA 2.0!

  7. Due to low MG releases… im looking forward to robot damashii figures….

  8. I have the HG Gold Frame, im not sure if I will get the RG line of it. But great reaview for the kit. Keep it up and more power.

    Hope someday Bandai make 1/144 RG Unicorn Gundam.

  9. i wonder if we would get a MG zeta 3.0

  10. I want that zetaaaaaa, also getting tempted by those fuminas, haven’t build one yet

  11. ive always wanted the zeta 2.0 hope i get it

  12. Zeta!!!!!!!

  13. Any upcoming MG release besides the Justice?

  14. Too many Fumina….

  15. I like the Astray Gold Frame wings and the weapons it has with it. I very like your guys show very much.

  16. grant my wishes MG Zeta gundam

  17. Great show guys, hope put the hands on this Zeta

  18. I could take that zeta and i would enjoy it!

  19. Nice show peeps, Would love the Zeta. I am a fan of the transform capabilities.

  20. Kind of a shame there’s only 2 kits this month, but I bet the Evolution Zeta will more than make up for that! I’m really looking forward to that.

  21. I’m pretty excited about the RG announcement. Not a huge fan of the gold frame, I think the blue and the red don’t really look that good on it

  22. Please give me that mg zeta.!!!!!!!!!

  23. RD figures giveaway, please…

  24. Now we’ve got to continue this trend of chronological gundam giveaway with ZZ gundam next lol, but in all seriousness Zeta will always be that timeless transforming gundam with great design only matched by macross that makes all others feel like a cheap imitation.

  25. I love the two tones of black on the Amatsu Mina, I can’t wait to get one. And it just so happens that I’m missing the Zeta Gundam from my collection, here’s hoping I win!

  26. I want zeta 2.0

  27. that Zeta would be a nice addition to a hobbyist collection

  28. I want a zeta, please please please…. Can I have a Zeta????

  29. I will gladly accept that zeta, Thanks Syd!

  30. HG ASW-G-47 Gundam Vual looks like they’re finally slowing down which means new announcements at the hobby shows~
    HG Super Fumina Axis Angel ver. is extra busty. =D

    15:37 RG MBF-P01-Re2AMATU Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Mina
    Pretty cool. The regular Gold Frame is a P-Bandai.
    I “wonder” what the next RG will be.

  31. I name this episode the cute, the shiny, and the bland.

  32. Woo, new episode for new kits!

    Vual looks awesome, i’ve heard mixed things on the kit, still the design alone sells me on it, so I gotta pick this HG up. Super Fumina still annoys me and I don’t like it, this one is half interesting though.

    The RG Amatsu Mina is a must buy for me, everything speaks to me. I loved the RG Astray before, and I bet this will be no different due to being so similar yet so different. The accessories look great, the gloss black looks fantastic, color separation is superb, details are A+, and even the lame gold doesn’t look half bad with the multi shades and color choice. This is one of the best Gunpla kits to date and I want it more than a lot.

    I already have FM Bael with the beautiful first edition stand, and it’s pretty nice. It’s simple though and has a few balancing issues and a few loose joints for me, not a ton of accessories either but that’s not the fault of the kit, still i’m satisfied with the way it looks.

  33. I think I want the Amatsu MIna. and THAT ZETA 2.0!

  34. I can’t wait for HLJ’s next seasonal sale, because there are so many cool gunpla I want to buy!

    Todd, the Fumina Angel ver is modelled after the Qubeley. It even has multiple mounting points under the wings that could be used for funnels.

    What d’you guys think of the first episode of ‘Frame Arms Girls?’ It makes me wish someone would send ME some sample models. Keep wishing, right? Anyway, I’m getting strong ‘Build Fighters’ vibes from it.

  35. I’m surprised that you guys did not mention that the Gundam Tristan is using parts from the HGUC 047 Gundam Alex. A lot of people are upset about the use of old, recycled, parts limiting articulation. Also, the P-Bandai Zaku III Custom from Twilight Axis is simply a re-color of the Zaku III Custom (with some Zaku III parts) that came out 20 years ago and this too has angered some Gunpla fans. Is Bandai simply getting lazy? What are your thoughts about this?

  36. Believe in the Sign of the Zeta!

  37. Zeta here thanks!

  38. Oh, neat. I’ve been thinking about getting a Zeta lately.


  40. nice ppap pun there

  41. Transforming kits are the bane of my existence as I have meaty fingers for the delicate transformations! Also R.I.P. I.B.O.

  42. Ugh i wish they stop the fumina line

  43. I’ve been thinking about getting the Bael, but I don’t have time to finish my contest entry let alone build another kit.

  44. That’s an awesome prize! I hope the next Gundam serie will have lots of transforming robots again!

  45. OMG Zeta Gundam 2.0, one of my absolute favorite Gundam designs, and kits! Hope I will be able to win it!

  46. Oh man I really hope the next RG is a unicorn. That would be awesome!

  47. New Funima version is always appreciated! 😀

    Oh, now I remembered that there is also that new Fumina figu-rise bust… hmmm, I like it a lot but I still have Makina waiting for her paintjob to be finished. So until then, no new kits for me 😛

  48. crossing my fingers for d Zetta!

  49. The Zeta Gundam is honestly one of my favorite gundams, he is extremely good looking in robot mode. His first appearance in the Zeta anime was pretty amazing as well. Her’s hoping I win (fingers crossed)
    In the middle of building my own 1/100 Vidar and hes awesome, still conflicted on whether to buy the Bael though.
    Great show as always guys cant wait to see the Hobby show video.

  50. Great show as always guys and Syd the right arm is from the Blitz Gundam. In the manga the gold frame gets it’s arm cut off by the Red frame then escapes. They then salvaged the arm of the Blitz that was cut off by Kira. They did it to replace the arm and give the Gold frame the mirage colloid the Blitz had.

  51. gundam bael looks interesting and elegant
    for the zeta i dont think im lucky

  52. I’m kind of surprised Bandai hasn’t released that awesome action stand as a stand alone. I would say they’re keeping it only for special releases….but the MG Fenice had it, which was a normal release!

  53. I like Zeta!

  54. 2.0 Hype!

  55. The new zeta HG looks really good.

  56. The latest batch of Gundam designs haven’t really interested me that much, sadly. It’s all fine by me, though; that just means more room for stuff like Macross and Frame Arms.

    Here’s hoping for that Zeta.

  57. I love Zeta Gundam. Did you know they’re showing HD episodes on youtube?

  58. The amatsu mina is sope AF!

  59. can i have that zeta pls…

  60. I have room on my shelf 😉

  61. That Zeta would,fit nicely to my FAZZ wich rests in its fortess-form on my shelf.

  62. Please! For the love of Gundam, NO MORE FUMINA!!!!

  63. that gundam vual looks awesome. definitely going on my “to get list”.

  64. Can’t wait to see Hobby Show 2017. Hope to see the anticipate MG Gundam Justice in the show.

  65. wow, what’s a busty Fumina… I would like to see more of that

  66. Holy crap zeta

  67. @Super Fumina Axis Angel Ver., that white plastic is NOT attractive at all… I would rather have the regular white plastic that the previous version used.

  68. Wonder if we will ever receive a Zeta 3.0…..

  69. Still can’t believe that there isn’t a Zeta 3.0!

  70. Looking forward the Shizuoka Hobby Show previews!

  71. Heard a G no Reconguista project is in the works… does that mean there’s still hope for an MG G-Self??

  72. I like how the frame for the right arm on the RG Gold Frame isn’t an Astray. Talk about attention to detail.

  73. Bandai still milking teenage girl……. well that came out wrong

    also zeta is love zeta is life

  74. Love the design of the Astray gold frame even though it’s a mish mash of the Blitz and Astray. The colour scheme really makes the look different to the blue and red frame.

  75. Everyone wants Zeta 3.0, but I’m excited for the ZZ Gundam Ver.Ka!


  77. Love the zeta series and mobile suits in the show. For some reason never got a Zeta mg and and hopefully I get lucky and win.

  78. I kind of want that Fumina kit, but the face still creeps me out.

  79. MG fuunsaiki when bandai?

  80. People complain about the Zeta transformation in all Grades, but I love them all

  81. waaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrghh!

  82. change my opinion on transformable gunpla by giving it to me

  83. A RG F91 probably can’t use Wing Zero’s frame, as it’s about 1cm smaller in 1/144 scale. God Gundam could use Zero’s frame perfectly, as far as size goes.

    What bothers me about a Nu or Sazabi RG is that they’ll probably do the same thing they did with the Sinanju. I think they should’ve made a “middle UC” frame to handle all of the larger suits like Nu and Sinanju. Then they could make a “late UC” frame for F91 and Victory.

  84. More MG Origin kits!

  85. I had an MG Zeta 2.0 before (from HLJ, of course) but I kinda sold it. It was in the time when i was a beginner and still just snap building kits. So i kinda have some issues with it.

    However, now, well, here is to hoping i win that (hehe). With the ZZ in the works. Would be a good addition in the Zeta line.

    Good job as always guys. I was thinking of collecting the RG line before but i kinda quit on that and sold my RG kits. The new RG kits though… Such a tease.

  86. Zeta!

  87. yeah? zeta?

  88. Praying for the zeta !! lol

  89. i want zeta!

  90. Zeta me up!

    Great show once again guys 🙂

  91. MG zeta is an amazing kit

  92. Great show. Wonder what the next RG will be?

  93. I think they should fill up the summer spot with more MG Unicorn kits. Given that the MG Sniper was released recently I would love for them to release some of the grunt suits that appear in the 4th OVA that might use the same or a very similar frame. GM-II, GM-III, Aqua GM, Nemo 2.0, Jegan, Guncannon DT, Byarlant Custom and even the Loto.

    The Zeta 2.0 reminds me of something. Wasn’t there a rumor about a Double Zeta MG release based on some poll they made?

  94. Hope to win!!! 🙂

  95. let me clear the space off ur shelf

  96. Here’s hoping that RNG Jesus blesses me with a Zeta 2.0 to go next to my MG MKII 2.0.

  97. Hey Syd, do you know what CAD software the bandai guys use by any chance?

  98. ZETA!!!!!!!!!! Would love to get that kit!

  99. To celebrate the upcoming 40th anniversary of GunPla, which MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam on its first release in Spring 2017 as the new HG line called HG Accelerate Evolution, it’ll be nice if i also can get that 1/100 zeta as my first zeta, thanks syd & tod, hjl

  100. dibs on the zeta!

  101. I gotta get that new RG Amatsu Mina to matchup against the RG Red Frame that I got here. Cheers for this new episode.

  102. Zeta is my favorite gundam. it is just so well made for its time!

  103. PM said on April 12, 2017

    great episode as always.

  104. Sid, yer makin’ mah teeth itch! Zeta is best. I need that Zeta!


  105. That Astray looks sick!

  106. I wish Bandai would release MGs of the more unusual monoeyes, like Zock or Hygogg.

  107. Another great episode. I have customization ideas for that Zeta Gundam. Also looking forward to the new one this month.

  108. Zeta! I’m ready for a 3.0 zeta

  109. Ohhhh! an oldie as a freebie! me me!
    Nice episode guys. I don’t know much about the gold frame but it looks good! I enjoyed the Bael build, looks solid.

  110. I build a zeta C1 a couple of months ago which imo is the best looking transformable gundam suit. I forgot its not a transformer toy and i transformed it a billion times =.=(which was extremely fun) and broke the fin T____T.

    I guess I should glue it back someday.

  111. Kamille is not a girl’s name!

  112. Loving the Bael. Still wish they would let us have a 1/100 Kimaris Vidar to go with it. The new Gold Frame also looks amazing. Think this means there’s hope for a Gold Frame Amatsu Mina MG?

  113. ZETA!!!! almost done with my playing with plamo entry guys

  114. Great show. I hope we get a 1/100 Kimaris Vidar since it was my favorite design next to the Barbatos Lupus.

  115. OMG, the zeta 2.0!! i have wanted that kit for sooooooo long. It looks amazing!

  116. That regular coloured Zeta would look really good next to my custom coloured one

  117. Believe in a sign of Zeta!

  118. The Amatsu Mina is just too busy and flashy for me.

  119. #RGUnicornPlease

  120. I didnt know there was 2.0 zeta, i am so late on this

  121. This video motivated me to build my 1 100 gold frame.
    Looks terrific andi recommend it to any builder.

    The zeta has my favorite face so this time i really hope i win

  122. Been excited for the GOLD Frame since its No-Grade form. RG has outdone itself!

  123. If your reading this then congratulations! You are winner!

  124. I have a 2.0 Zeta but I broke the leg piece that attaches to the waist when I was transforming him one time, been sitting in it’s box since.

  125. Those Fumina kits are something else!I have a question about the RG Amatsu Mina.I was thinking of painting the RG frame for this kit to give it a shinier look. Do you guys think it’ll hinder the movement of the joints? Thank you in advanced!

    • Anytime you paint something, you are adding a new layer of thickness. So yes the joints will be tightes, and yes you should paint it, but not with spray cans. Spray can paint is much thicker than air brushed lacquer paint. Use and an airbrush.

  126. Looking forward to whatever Bandai has waiting for us at the show coming, hoping for a 1/100 Flauros from IBO

  127. Zeta me up!

  128. Awesome zeta

  129. Thanks for bringing back into stock in February (for a very short time) the classic HG 1/100s’ of GUNDAMs Airmaster Burst and Leopard Destroy. Made my month.

  130. That zeta is a beast! Great show, guys!

  131. Can’t waite to order new kits!

  132. Give me the power of the mg Zeta 2.0 please

  133. Never really understand why the RG zeta didnt come with the particle canon
    I hope for an nomral price RG for the next release

  134. Do you guys forsee a Master Grade Gold Frame Amatsu in the future? With the push on the seed kits I feel like it is very possible. It would be huge if the made it a Version Ka. What are your thoughts?

  135. Great show. Love to get my hands on that Zeta ^_^

  136. This RG Gold Frame has to be the most complex and frustrating out of them all. The need of excessive care for the gloss parts, the need of painting the gold parts if you’re after a more model-like look (instead of the ugly frosty gold that Bandai gave us), the hard and maddening task of cleaning nubs on the tiny pieces (especially in the head), and then finally those clear parts. You’ve gotta be careful not to scratch or fog the piece when cleaning nubs. However, after all those painstaking things, it’s so worth it and would make such a beautiful display piece. (Hype for new HG Zeta!)

  137. Are you guys doing anything special for ep. 250?

  138. What do you guys think of the newest star wars trailer?

  139. i need to be luckier!

  140. Hope I win

  141. Rg unicorn please

  142. Give me that zeta!

  143. The astray looks nice

  144. Mg Zeta, my favorite!

  145. It would be nice if the extra right arm of the Gold Frame astray have complete parts and to try it on my Red Frame…

  146. I love your shows, very interesting and informative. I also enjoy buying kits from you guys, shipping is fast and items are fresh!

    I have been building and painting kits for quite some timde now, and I would really be appreciative if you would be able to choose me for the Zeta giveaway… and maybe include a signatured picture of you guys in it as well, that would really look nice on my display shelf.

    Good show as always guys, can’t wait for the next one!

    – Ice

  147. Excellent episode guys, greetings from Peru

  148. An RG Sazabi would be pretty awesome. That 2.0 Zeta is sweet. Don’t have that one.

  149. MG Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Mina would be awesome 🙂 , RG is too small for my hands 🙂

  150. OMG! Love ZETA!!!

  151. Hey Syd and Todd, I have finally caught up in watching every Gunpla Tv episode and footage from various events you have attended. Man what a journey. My friends started into Gunpla around July of 2016 (when I started watching from episode 1) and I got interested so I YouTube searched about Gunpla and one of the top results was a Gunpla tv episode. So I searched for episode 1 and got hooked. Before I go on for to long I have a question for you guys, do you know of any plans from bandai to “revive” the old G Gundam kits like Dragon, Bolt, Rose, Maxter, Devil, and Rising Gundam? G Gundam is my favorite series and I would love solid models to have on display. I am a huge fan of your show and look forward to more episodes in the future keep up the good work.

  152. It has been a while since I saw a gunpla tv episode due to my new job. I can finally catch up and see what is going on in the world of Gunpla.
