  3. the Custom Grunt suits are some of my favs. I mean they add little to the kits but so much at the same time

  17. So I guess we can now expect RG high mobility Zakus of all sorts of colors. Shin Matsunaga anyone?

  19. I would imagine that the reason Bandai haven’t been releasing 3.0 MGs is most likely due to the challenge of making the improvements from the 2.0 designs significant enough to warrant a 3.0 kit being made. Not only do Bandai need the technology to advance enough, they also need the layout of the model to be perfect, otherwise you just end up with a slightly redesigned 2.0 instead of a 3.0

    Think of it as 2.0 being the equivalent of HG (I’m not saying HGs are bad, just that RGs are a completely different tier, whilst still being the same scale.) and 3.0 being RG; if you only change a few elements, you just have a (possibly) better HG variant. But give it a complete overhaul and make everything line up just right and you have something magical

    I suppose it’s somewhat similar to trying to reinvent the wheel… over and over again

  20. This will probably be the first RG Zaku I get because something about it just makes me want it more than the others. Maybe it’s the shade of red?

  21. guncannon is love.. may you always build GunplaTV!

  22. Everything from Origin is awesome!

    A Zaku 3.0 it’s just a scaled up Rg Zaku. Same details, same colours variations. Just bigger. But same Style.
    My idea for Bandai is to produce more kits from other famous mecha designer! Not only ver.ka from Hajime Katoki. For example I dream an Mg from Kazuhisa Kondo! A Ver.Ko eh eh eh…
    Can you imagine one of his creations in Mg…like the Goblin…

  23. I like a lot the Origin kits!

  24. Lupus Rex should have had a Beast Mode.
    So many Zakus…
    Oh, I don’t have a Guncannon yet.

    Reply
  25. Something “Big” eh, I definitely have no idea what it could be Todd? Side note to Todd, Full Metal Panic (FMP)definitely a show that you need to see at least once. If I was living in Japan, I would let you borrow my copy of FMP and its spin-offs. But don’t worry, FMP Season 4 “Invisible Victory” comes out next year (fingers crossed).

  26. Hai there!

    Doraemon has always creeped me out since I was a kid, can’t say the figure-rise mechanics interests me too much. Still the mechanical detailing and the clear bits are a nice aspect, it’ll hopefully sell to those doraemon fans.

    Johnny Ridden’s Zaku II seems like a slightly upgraded RG Zaku II with more modern engineered parts and connections, which is great because the original kinda had a few issues. The 90˚ knee is great news, meaning this is the J-Ridden HM Zaku kit with the largest knee bend, which lets me stop debating on which one I want. Definitely will buy it eventually, if not sooner than others.

  27. Next time it will PG of that lightning model, what else can be called ‘big’ in november/december.

  28. The RG johny riddens zaku looks pretty great, i probably will pick it up soon.

    Reply
  29. The Guncannon first type always makes me sad, they look a lot more cooler than the final design, yet they were living coffins that couldn’t stand a chance against the zeon suits.

    Reply
  30. I’m guessing the big thing in the next episode is gonna be Todd’s Gojulas.

    Reply
  31. Johnny Ridden will look great parked next to my Black Trinity. Looking forward to that “big kit” reveal! Great show, guys.

    Reply
  32. I like this Johnny Ridden Custom Zaku than the other counterparts, especially the color. By the way, I have a couple of customized kits and I would like to share the pictures with you guys. Can I do that and how I can do that?
    Ps: Great show guys!

  35. If you’re not a high number in the comments you don’t stand a chance of winning. “random” my butt.

    • Rest assured, we do use a RNG to draw winning comments.

      • I know you do, just feels like it has always been a lower number who wins. 🙂
