Bandai has made April a lean month so we only have the High Grade Vual Gundam to show, but does that mean that next month’s Shizuoka Hobby Show is going to feature a lot of big reveals? Possibly. Be sure to watch Gunpla TV to find out.

There is less than a week left in the Playing with Plamo 2017 Contest! Be sure to get your entries in!

Kits featured in this episode:

New Gundam Decals!
1/144 HGUC Zeta Gundam – Gunpla Evolution Project
1/144 HG Gundam Vual

  1. Yeah, new episode!

  2. Been busy with building my gundam for Playing With Plamo competition, glad to finally have the time to catch a new episode.

    Kinda sad I missed the zeta givaway.

    Looking forward to the Shizuoka Hobby Show coverage.

  3. Gundam Vual is my favorite design from the IBO line-up!

  4. YES! Waterslides!

    So, here’s a question for you two – at some point Bandai have to stop releasing PG Unicorn variants and actually release an all-new PG. If you had to put a bet on it, what would you LIKE to see as a PG release, and what do you think would in reality be more likely as the next new PG release? I would like to see a Sinanju Stein, but I reckon it would be something more mainstream like a GM or a Barbatos.

    Also I am calling it now that Todd says “Ball” ^_^

  5. Kamille Bidan is the pilot of the Zeta Gundam, since he was a boy but Kamille is supposedly a girls name he ends up shouting “Kamille is a man’s name!” a couple times during the series.

    Anyways cool Vual, and looking forward to the Evolution Zeta. Great show as always guys.

  6. Am I the only one that feels like they should have released a few more kits in April instead of trying to overload March? Anyway I finally got a Freedom 2.0 and I have to say it looks amazing in person just on the runners. I can’t wait till finals are over.

  7. I built the previous HG Zeta a while ago but ran into trouble assembling the legs as the lower leg assembly had both sides almost identical which lead me to glue two sides from the left and right legs together, only realising my mistake when I began assembling the second leg. With this in mind, I’d be interested in seeing how the leg construction of the new kit differs with the 2003 version.

  8. Ewww a partsformer, how loathsome, well it still looks cool though, if only it transform.

  9. Might not an active month but new episodes are always nice.

    I already bought, built, and taken review pictures of the Gunpla Evolution Project Zeta, and it’s a nice kit. It’s definitely the most sturdy, articulate Zeta we have, but the excessive stickers kinda put a hamper on…well…everything, still happy we have it though. I was kinda disappointed on how little “new stuff” was done after all the “Evolution” advertising, the torso was the only new innovation I really saw with the arm joints, and I still feel it could be perfected more, especially since it’s a little finicky and could break under pressure, with the tight tolerances not helping. Still though, it’s a new Zeta, and I think it’s the best Zeta we got so far, so i’m glad to have it.

    The decals are awesome, these will go well with any IBO kit I might pursue in the future, especially the Ryusei-Go ones, I aim to get all 3 and maybe 4 units, so I gotta get there.

    Vual is an awesome design, i’ll still have to pick it up despite the problems i’m hearing because I just can’t resist not getting such a good looking MS. Stickers are annoying but hey, it’s an HGIBO kit, expected them. I just love this design too much, with the repair aesthetic, colorscheme, and design.

  10. Finally the waterslides are back!

  11. I was already super excited for the new Zeta, but even more so after seeing the runners. That kit can’t arrive fast enough!

  12. no one beats the granddaddeh

  13. i wanna see the the full city in 1/100

  14. For Playing with Plamod, if i used Gundam Marker to replace some sticker, what category should i apply? Thanks!

  15. Help a guy out! I have another custom HG planned, but I need that Skull Weapon to complete it, and no one has it for under $20.

  16. Decals! Thank you Bandai. Vual looks good. Like the darker colors. Thanks Todd and Syd!

  17. I think the Zaku 2.0 is perfect as is. The only way they can do a Zaku 3.0 is to include higher detail like more panel lines and more color separation. I would love for them to improve many of the older mobile suits like the older GMs with a better frame and articulation.

  18. Reading the dates the kit was released makes me feel old. Its like, wow I remember when that was new.

  19. From the tsunami of kits to a dry-spell. I don’t know which one to get sad about(My wallet crying due to it being sucked bone-dry or the crying due to over-spillage)P.S. To the competitors vying for the top prize in the Playing With Plamo Competition, Good luck and may Akihiro’s nippers be with you!(Can’t enter due to study reasons) P.S. Tod actually got my name right its pronounced with the j as in jungle.

  20. My Seven Swords is almost ready 😛

  21. I love thew new Gundam Decals! I wish they would make more for RGs especially ones like the Sinanju since it has a glossy finish that makes the stickers show up more.

  22. That Vual could probably looks so much better with minimal effort, matt spray it, then some easy dry brushing and decals.

  23. Damn, always wanted a zeta 2.0! Then you whip it out and i was like (woah)

  24. Someone from my elementary school, who I haven’t seen in years but saw on the bus, told me he has a MG Zeta in his closet, but never built it. So, who knows? If I win this one, and buy off his, I’ll have two MG Zetas.

  25. Wish I got me that zeta. The new revive that isn’t called revive now looks really cool though.

  26. The box art of the new HG Zeta is so cool!!!

  27. That Vual looks great. I’m glad I’ve been a big fan and kept more up to date with the Gundam franchise.

  28. Can’t wait to get the Vual!

  29. Waterslides are the most fun part of building a modelkit to me. Glad the “dry season” is over.

    Ill see myself out.

  30. So uhh..this might have been asked before, but BANDAI did tease a ZZ Gundam Ver. Ka. coming sometime this year. Any news on that? 🙂 Great show as always guys!

  31. oh my zeta!!!!

  32. needs a matte top coat and it would look amazing! Out of the box, black looks a little too plasticy

  33. Great show guys can’t wait to see what comes out next

  34. Really enjoying the show. I look forward to every episode each week. I can’t wait for your Shizuoka coverage. Keep up the great work gentleman.

  35. Great show as always. I love the vual, cant wait for new anouncnents.

  37. ZETA GUNDAM awesome… Nice show guys so sad because Syd is leaving the show… I’ve been watching this show since episode 1…
