  6. I would love to win the vidar but anyway I have a burning question I want to ask. In the recent poll for the new MG ver ka what will you two personally want to have a ver ka? Barbatos,G Self, God Gundam, or Age FX?

  7. Great show guys… I’m not really into zoids but looking forward to seeing the review of the Gojulas The Ogre. I’ve been pronouncing Baselard is the same way as Todd did too but speaking of IBO kits and the ZZ ver KA, have you seen the latest voting poll on Gundaminfo regarding next possible ver Ka kit? Without trying to start any controversy, which kit on the list would you guys like to see get the ver Ka treatment next?

  8. I absolutely love the Vidar. It’s one of the best looking IBO kits in my opinion. I love the replaceable rapiers and that angular design looks amazing. Can’t wait to see that Zoids kit on the show when it’s built.

  13. BUGU!! also the gundam girls seem to be a more affordable option if FA girls are out of your price range

  16. Almost nothing beats the sharpness in details of Koto-kits. Somtimes the,edges are so crisp, you can almost look through it. Compared to this the latest Gundamkits lag in surfacedetails, especially when it comes to the armorparts. I recommend the new Z Knight series,of Koto.
    And when,it comes to cats… painting is the part when catfurr becomes a problem!

  17. Vidarruu! May you always build gunpla TV!

  18. Nice bag trick indeed. Great job todd.

  19. Koto stuff! Hooray!

    Hexa Gear really seems like an awesome line so far, almost by combining Zoids and Frame Arms and more added stuff sprinkled into the mix, Kotobukiya have made a new line with an enormous amount of potential. Voltrex looks awesome, I love the green they chose and I love dinosaurs, so I definitely want one eventually. The concept of the riders, accessories, vehicles and variety. The line even has the compatibility and gimmicks for awesome products, so i’m very excited for future releases.

    I loved Baselard in the anime, I wish the kits were more faithful to the show, but considering they came first, it was to be expected. The kit of Baselard looks great, she’s the most innocent of the group and wears the most, and is an epic kit with a lot of accessories and fun too, I really want her, but I want the anime version more…

  20. Vidar! Not bad at all. Except for the absurd feet! If I win I will scratchbuild new feet for him!

  21. The Gojulas kit is amazing and huge. I painted mine and it look gorgeous. Have fun. 🙂

  22. VIDAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Yo if I find a lady that loves Gunpla/Plastic Models I’m gonna use that pickup line from Todd: “Nice to met you! You’re my kind of scale!”

    Reply
  24. Baselard looks great, really excited to eventually pick her up.

    Reply
  25. I really need to get a Frame Arms girl one of these days.

    Reply
  26. these kits are way more expensive than Bandai’s, but they do look better out of the box though

    Reply
  27. I could use a Vidar.

    Reply
  28. Kotobukiya kits are always a fun change of pace. The name “Baselard” alone makes me want to buy one.

  29. Yeeeeeeeeeey!!! Thanks for my Barbatos Lupus!!!!

  30. the colors make me think the Voltrex is the Graze Ritters son…

    • Glad I wasn’t the only one who got Graze Ritter vibes looking at that Hexa Gear.

  31. Nice episode. Are you going to review some Bandai Star Wars kits?

    Reply
    • HLJ does not sell Star wars kits outside Japan, Bandai forbid them to do so.

  32. Great Show HLJ i cant wait till i can build my next custom Gunpla And hope to improve my skills

  33. What I am most impressed with the Full Mechanics Vidar is that the wrists were engineered in a way to give the mobile suit a good range of articulation around the wrist for all his weapons. It would be nice to use those in a kit bash with other IBO kits.

    Reply
  34. that hexagear looks like something kitbashed from IBO

    Reply
  35. wow that goujulas kit is a wall of plastic!

    Reply
  36. i like the fact they show other stuff it should just be ” Plamo TV”

    Reply
  37. Baselard is a terrible name for a girl. What were her parents thinking?

    Reply
  38. I really like the look of those Hexa Gear kits, and i love the Frame Arms Girls. Id like see more variety in the content like you do in this episode.
    Do you have plans to show more Kotobukiya kits like the Megami Device ones?

    Reply
  39. Even if the Barbatos is a Full Mechanics 1/100, it’s not stopping people from asking for a MG Barbatos. There’s a poll from Bandai on what people want as the next Ver Ka, and the Barbatos is winning so far (second is the G-Self). They could make a Full Mechanics Ver Ka, but I doubt it since Ver Ka has been apart of MG’s since the idea was first made.

    Reply
  40. Yamato, Frame Girls, what’s next on HLJ TV? Stay tune to find out! Great work on the episode BTW. The one thing I always like about the Vidar was it had those pistol stored in its front skirt. It looks really gangster to me.

    Reply
  41. Picking Ver. Ka G Self or Ver. Ka Barbatos is ripping me apart

    Reply
  42. YOU DARE DEFY THE DARK LORD!! The evening hangs beneath the Moon. Todd the last thing you will see is a green flash of light and remembered on your face will be a horrid look of fright! Your eyes will fade to gray as your soul slips away. Soon you’ll rue the day you ever came my way.

    On topic, I am so excited to see the what the Guajalas turns out like.

  44. That gojulas box is massive! and it weighs over 6kg!?

    Reply
  45. Look at the size of that box…The shipping will cost more than a Perfect Grade!

    Reply
  46. I would love to win that sexy VADER.

    Reply
  47. If only Bandai can make prepainted face or Eyes for the Fumina kits, they will look less creepy, like look at the Figure-rise Bust Fuminas, they are not creepy looking

  48. EIIIEEEEENSSSSZZZZ !!!!!

  49. Kotobukiya got some nice ngs kits

    Reply
  50. Hell yes! You are bulding the ogre. I’ll deff look forward to seeing the progress as time goes by on that. Don’t want to ask for more since your building the massive ogre already, but if Lyndsay would like a intro to zoids, the storm sworder is going to be released this November ans its a lot more manageable size.

  51. Ooooh, a FM Vidar. I want it.

    Reply
  52. Great show guys!! but Gundams will always be better:P. would like 2 win the Vidar

    Reply
  53. can’t wait to see that gojulas todd please build it as fast as u can >.< and it would be nice if syd is around when the gojulas is finished…

    Reply
  54. Lindsay, please don’t forget to cover the rest of the fantastic ARTICULATION on the kits you build. I have my own FA Girl Baselard waiting to be built — after I complete my entry for the GBWC 2017 Canada, perhaps? I had to paint Innocentia to make her presentable (you can check out my review on YouTube (shameless plug) if you like). I can also recommend Kotobukya’s MSG Heavy Weapons Gun Blade Lance, for FA Girls and 1/144 gunpla.

    Review of SOL Hornet coming sometime soon too.

    I want me that FM Vidar!!!

    Reply
  55. Great show as usual 😉

    Reply
  56. I hope i can win that vidar! I’m so digging that design.

    Reply
  57. Great to see some Koto kits. The Vidar was also my favourite design from HBO so fingers crossed.

    Reply
  58. I agree, the Vidar was one of the best looking suits in IBO.

    Reply
  59. With that Gojulas thing standing around I don’t need a Christmas tree. It is the Christmas tree!

  60. Hi guys,
    That was a great show . You are definitely getting better with each show as you become more accustomed to each other behind the Gunpla desk.

    I think mixing in some other products between the gunpla would be appreciated by those of us not too familiar with them and may generate some new interests in other mecha. Looking forward to the Gojulas over the next few weeks.

    Reply
  61. Those 1/100 FM kits look nice, should pick up some. I also hope that the Astaroth Origin will come back into stock soon

    Reply
  62. Vidar is the best looking design in ibo.

    Reply
  63. OMG The vidar is so sick! Keep up the good work !!

    Reply
  64. Super glad you guys did a hexagear full look like that, was on the fence about it about but im getting some for sure now

    Reply
  65. fun episode nice to see other kits. XD happy to finally see Frame arms girl on the show been a fan of these kits since the gouri kits I still remember how rare and hard it was to get the kits.

    That Gojulas looks like it will be a big challenge painting it Todd ?haha

    Reply
  66. Vidar is one of the least cool designs imo… Ah well, taste and such.
    Hexagear looks cool!

    Reply
  67. Hi team
    How about showing us your collection and can you answer the question that has been bothering me for some time, Can kits share the same shelf as figures or do you think they clash in some kind of Hoi Hoi san conflict when left alone?

    Reply
  68. The show just keeps getting better. You guys must rehearse? Lindsay’s right about the Frame Arms Girl Baselard box art. Excellent. Todd, Gojulas is the boss, bro. Seeing one under each Christmas tree, planet-wide, would be like a world peace thing or something. Great idea.

  69. I’m just finishing up lupus and no it’s not as complicated as an mg but it’s still fun!

    Reply
  70. I have been thinking of buying some Frame Arms Girls kits for awhile now, but I have the lack of funds to do so… T_T ONE DAY~!

    Reply
  71. I wish Kotobukiya would reprint their SRW kits more often.
