  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

  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!

  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.

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

    Reply
  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.

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

    Reply
  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.

    Reply
  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?

  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.

  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.

    Reply
  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

    Reply
  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.

    Reply
  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.

  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.

  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.

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

    Reply
  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!

    Reply
  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.

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

    Reply
  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?

  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.

  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!

    Reply
    • 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.

  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?

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

    Reply
  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!)

    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!

  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.

    Reply
  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.
