This week we take a look at another Hexa Gear release by Kotobukiya, the Hidestorm! With its 8 lusciously long articulated legs with menacing blades on the ends, this kit sure looks fearsome! Not to mention it is quite the departure from the usual biped mobile suits featured on the show. But just how does this bug hold up? Watch to find out!

Kits in this episode:
1/24 HEXA GEAR Hidestorm
– 1/100 RE/100 Guncannon Detector


  1. Nice episode like always!

  2. what a good bugboy!!!

  3. third!

  4. Cutting too close to the parts and I gouge out the plastic in the parts a little bit (sniff).

  5. Love this spider!

  6. really looking forward to the upcoming hgac leo and rg tallgeese. Huge wing fan so I’m glad there’re getting the attention they deserve. hopefully bandai will continue making more high grade wing kits.

  7. Speaking of poster, maybe we can have them for free too apart from 2000yen 😀

  8. Sorry but that spider is a waste of plastic..

  9. I want that certificate but I don’t know what to post, so here’s a sentence

  10. let me win let me win let me win

  11. Time to win something?

  12. I have nothing relevant to say here…

  13. Which gunpla are you waiting the most this year?

  14. Anything you can use there in Japan paint and glue wise, we can get here off of the net or locally. And why are you limited to 1 week you have spoken of a kit with 5 transformations that you have not finished yet.

  15. I really want to try Kotobukiya kits, don’t get me wrong, I love Gundam kits, but hey, variety is the spice of life.

  16. What’s everyone’s favourite build (overall)? Mine is the HGUC Sinanju with all of its detail, articulation, and awesome weapons.

  17. Really liking the look of the new wing kits, hopefully they make some more. Great episode as usual.

  18. Hey Lindsay beautiful as always,hey Todd cool as always. I’m looking forward to watching the new build fighters dive series and the gunpla releases.Keep up the good work like always guys bye!

  19. I was looking forward to this kit and it came out amazingly well great show guys keep it up

  20. They finally represented reconguista in G(bad storytelling,but their suits are “unique”) and Age series(seasons 1 & 2 were great,3 was meh…).Valentines,for me at least,is going to be spent on hours of cramming for tests;which gives mere more reason to stock up on chocolates for “brain food”

  21. really looking forward to build divers! Im a huge fan of the build series.

  22. MONEEHHHHH hoping for more robot spirits on toy tengoku!!

  23. great show guys!! can’t w8 to see the guncannon. would never say no to 2000

  24. I’d love to see some macross reviews! Also pre-ordered that Guncannon! I really can’t wait! It will be my first RE:100!

  25. I can’t believe I won!! haha I wish I could get my hands on one of those posters 🙁

  26. I want those Haros!!! Take my monies!

  27. gotta say, that hidestorm gives me a ZOIDS vibe.

  28. Hey guys, remember that Bugu you gave away a few episodes back? Well I customised it and wanted you to see it. Thanks for giving me the chance to build a model I probably wouldn’t get otherwise. BTW the audio is in portuguese but I added english subtitles.

  29. When I saw the Haros the first thought that came to mind was to make pool table diorama with them just so that I can play with my balls 😏

  30. Squid Fries?! How about sending some of them my way instead…?

  31. I would love it if Bandai make some more MG 0083 kits!

  32. I love the design of the hexa gear kits, I heard that they are planning on making it into a board game, can’t wait to see how it will turns out

  33. Hoping to win the store credit! Great show as always!

  34. While I’m happy to see divers redesign Age and G-reco kits the continued redesign of 00 2nd season and possibly Wakening of the trailblazer kits are even more exciting to me.

  35. Todd takes the Kotobukiya Bionicle Challenge and wins! And no biology tips this week. Good show. Dear Bandai, an MG Zaku-06 (FZ?) 3.0 would be nice….maybe a Hajime Katoki version? Anybody? Bueller?

  36. The day robot spiders become common on this earth is the day I sneak abort a spaceship and leave the planet.

  37. These Kotobukiya kits are nice but this kit looks like it would take up a lot of space for such a small kit!

  38. This kit is a bit like the Sentinels from Matrix.
    You will talk about the “re-releases” of Mega Man 1/10 series by Kotobukiya?

  39. Keep up the good work guys!

  40. Guncannon detector is one kit that grew on me the more I look at it. initially I was like ewww no, but now I’m like awww yess💦💦💦

  41. I haven’t heard much about Hexagear outside your show but they look pretty good!

  42. New RE kit!

  43. Definitely looking forward to the new Build Divers series and more gunpla kits from it. Also gotta get an orange Haro…Lockon Stratos style! Thank you Lindsay and Todd for GunplaTV! Really enjoy seeing Lindsay on both HLJ shows! She’s the face of HLJ!

  44. Looking forward to build divers!

  45. It’s look like lego bionicles.

  46. whats the lucky number to win the hidestorm, can it be this number >>

  47. Pink Gundam for Valentine!

  48. I like the Guncannon Detector looking forward to a review of that kit. Looking forward to Build Divers curious what other custom kits will turn up in that series as well as any cameos.

  49. I’m looking forward to your next MG kit review, it’s been a while…..

  50. I don’t understand the YouTube comments complaining about not covering enough gunpla or spending too much time on Kotobukiya and other brands. I personally appreciate the variety as I build frame arms girls, FMP, Macross and others. Love seeing new things that can peak my interest. Keep up the great reviews and variety guys!

  51. I have recently watched the Build Diver prologue episode and I really like how Bandai is starting to include the MSs from more recent series. I am hoping this can be a chance for lesser know MS to make the spotlight. What are your thought?

  52. That Hexa gears looks great like a spider with long leg. Daddy long leg spider

  53. Kinda expensive for that legs-thingy. Or are these tentacles? Good thing for FA’girls humiliation scenes tho.

  54. That thing looks like a robotic face hugger.

  55. Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    That 2000 Yen you said,
    will look good in my HLJ account too

  56. Its always good to see Koto kits on this show. That Guncanon looks super neat.

  57. that Hidestorm looks freakin fantastic! i just don’t get it why they name it Hidestorm. it’s not like it can hide anywhere looking like that.

  58. Great videos, I’ve been watching for a while but I just got an hlj.tv account. I was wondering if there was any chance of you guys covering the Dragonball figure-rise standard kits, I understand that it isnt mecha but I was just curious since they are Bandai kits.

  59. more interested in hexa gear now

  60. Would also love to see some Macross reviews. Keep up the great work.

  61. Need 2000 yen to fund the HG Leo army. Each week is like giving out 2 Leos.

  62. I see potential for a custom build with this thing, i think ill grab one when i come up with an idea for it

  63. Interesting hexa kit, but not my cup of tea. Thanks for the review.

  64. The Hyde Storm is definitely an impressive kit, it’s just got so much presence and parts separation, and looks so cool, not to mention that sweet purple colorscheme. I heavily dig it, definitely contender for my favorite Hexa Gear.

    RE/100 Guncannon Detector surprised me so much but I was excited from the moment of announcement. I love the Guncannon Detector but never thought it’d get a kit, but low and behold, RE/100’s MS choices never, ever let me down. I love obscure MS like this, and the Guncannon Detector os one of my favorites, bless this grade.

  65. Hopefully, I will win that 2000 yen store credit.

  66. The design of the Kotobukiya Hexa Gear Hidestorm looks exactly like a spider.

  67. What do you guys think of that giant transforming Unicorn?

  68. Hi good folks
    Can I ask if their is any news on the Haro versions that are coming?

  69. Hexa gear looks cool, but the re 1/100 tho. Gun cannon detector, way into left field for me. Did not expect that. Still waiting for re 1/100 leo so mg tallgeese won’t feel alone, wing gundam has his 4 man army, so why not tallgeese and his leos? could be as cheap as the HG, since it looks really simple for it to be $8 aprox. But that gives it, it’s appeal. Simple.

  70. I hope the Gundam Build Divers will be good
