Gunpla TV – Episode 281 – Phenex & Leo NPD!

This week we take a look at two mythological kits, the Phenex and Leo! From the new series “Gundam Narrative”, the Phenex is armed and dangerous with its Destroy Mode activated and new tails on the shields! The Leo NPD from Gundam Build Divers shows that it is heads and shoulders above the previous Leo release by containing not one, not two but four head and shoulder options! We also take a quick look at the new SD Gundam Cross Silhouette which has just arrived!

Kits in this episode:
1/144 HGUC Unicorn Gundam Unit 3 Phenex (Destroy Mode) (Narrative Ver.)
1/144 HGBD Leo NPD
SD GUNDAM CROSS SILHOUETTE

  2. It would look a bajillion times better if its gold plated. 😀 And to those who say that that’s gonna be expensive — hey, you get what you pay for. ;P

  3. The bucket head is the best head for the Leo NPD

  4. As much as I love those fancy Destroy Mode Unicorn kits, I wish they improved something over the original instead of just being remolds of a 2009 kit that didn’t have good articulation when it came out in the first place -sad face-

  6. Excellent review as always! Love Unicorn Gundam variants, although the original is still my fav! Phenex does tempt me though, so bright & golden! 😀

  12. My boy the Phenex has been a long time coming, and i’m so glad it’s finally gotten itself an affordable non-exclusive HG kit. Can’t wait to eventually buy two to build both versions!

  13. You guys have me REALLY interested in building a Leo army!
    Plus I just finished my master grade Tallgeese, & I love it!

  14. That SDCS looks interesting specially the Nightingale looks cool.

    Reply
  15. That Leo reminds me of the starter LBX in Danball Senki Wars. I wish bandai didnt drop that series so fast the Hyper Function kits were so much fun and they had inner frames!

  16. Phenex looks saturated the wrong colour. Lots of people will paint it. I see lots of Leo armies coming.
    Of the new announced kit I might get the Nanami kit, 00 Higher Sky, and maybe the Jegan Blastmaster. I’m still looking for the new Seravee for a more reasonable price because I like the Ptolemy.

  17. I would get the Phenex if they come out with a RG version of the kit.
    SN: Its my birthday!!!!

  18. Actually, the NPD version’s colours would be similar to the Leo Space Type. So it technically wouldn’t be ‘not Wing accurate colours’.

    Reply
  19. you pretty much can do a hg 1/144 leo space type without the space pack.

    Reply
  20. Let’s see if I can win some store credit since I never win the stuff from toy tengoku

    Reply
  21. I loved the Unicorn anime but I haven’t anything about Narrative to get my interest. I’m more hyped about the live action movie and the kits the could come from that.

    Reply
  22. kinda looks like bandai run out of the same color plastic for that Leo NPD

    Reply
  23. Has Bandai issued any word on when/if a Labo Fumina repop will happen? I think their last statement was after its release, that they were ironing out some production issues.

  24. Great family guy reference!!!

    Reply
  25. cant wait for the new kits coming up soon woohoo!

    Reply
  26. So you can build a regular Leo out of the NPD, that’s great. And with the purple color it reminds me of the space type version

    Reply
  27. So much Unicorn

    Reply
  28. i want one please

    Reply
  29. A bit late but the new website is nice

    Reply
  30. I’m about to pick up some new gold paint this week. If it looks good after a bit of time (last when aged for a month became copper looking) I’m probably gonna pick up the HG Phenex and paint it up.

    Reply
  31. This episode was great and I do enjoy the episodes thanks and keep up the good work:)

    Reply
  32. Not really a big fan of the mustard gold, but at least it looks passable on camera, now I just hope for good placed nubmarks

    Reply
  33. Interesting cross silhouette series

    Reply
  34. So I assume Bandai have aborted their SD EX Standard line?

    Reply
  35. I’m really hyped for 00 Sky (Higher than sky ver.) and I’ve preordered it already. I just love 00 line and those effect parts are amazing
    And still waiting for restock of Full Mechanics Barbatos Lupus and HG Barbatos 😡

    Reply
  36. I wish they will make a rg form of the phenex but I hope is coated gold not in the bad gold plastic they always use. Keep it up with the videos

    Reply
  37. I really like the reviews. But man, I LOVE it when you guys start talking about what series you are watching, figures you would like to see in the future… I find it very entertaining. I’d even say it’s a cool idea to start a new series of videos!

    Reply
  38. I wait to see what Gundam Narrative bring us and offers, Can’t wait to see more kits

    Reply
  39. Great, I hope I get one.

    Reply
  40. Can someone please tell me where in the anime phenex comes in? I’ve never seen it in the unicorn ova

    Reply
  41. Too many Unicorn variants, but nevertheless still an excellent looking kit

    Reply
  42. I LOVE SD GUNDAM

    Reply
  43. Still waiting for more Wing Gundam kits!

    Reply
  44. I really like these new SD kits, especially with the new frame. Probably will get one.

    Reply
  45. nice, and shiny

    Reply
  46. I’m glad you like Hinamatsuri, Golden Kamuy, and SAO GGO, I really enjoyed those shows last season! Also, I would love to have an HG Tallgeese, that would be so fun to have.

    Reply
  47. I think the SD GUNDAM CROSS SILHOUETTE kits are my new addiction

    Reply
  48. The Leo NPD’s Maganac themed head is my favorite. Looking forward to seeing more of the cross silhouette kits next week.

    Reply
  49. The astray no-name and the oo higher than sky look really nice.
    Are you going you to do anything special for epipode 300?

    Reply
  50. Hello, Usually i’m not into golden shiny kits, but i have to admit the phenex looks really cool. As Todd said, it would be so cool to have some world of warcraft zeppelin kit or figure.. But i guess that would be cool too if we could have more blizzard figures for diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 and the most important.. Could you imagine cool units like starcraft’s siege tank, the battlecruiser, maybe a thor.. or some protoss units brought to model kits… Wouldn’t they look just great ?

  51. The Leo is such a great kit. going to get that Divers one and just build a space type leo (colours are almost identical). the extra parts can be used as busted suits floating around in space after the OG leo tore them apart.

    Reply
  52. I want to Win!!!

    Reply
  53. Can’t wait for the new SD kits. Of the ones that have been announced, I think the Zeta looks the best.

    Reply
  54. I’m not all that interested in Gundam but i’m currently buying and building a lot of Kotobukiya’s kits: Frame Arms, Frame Arm Girls and Megami Device. But mostly i but things i think look nice. Hope i win so i can afford more stuffs.

    Reply
  55. The Leo is probably gonna get a lot of variations now that it has finally been released

    Reply
  56. The new SD kits look interesting…I might get one

  58. I don’t know why everyone says the gold color is bad. It is the dullness of the plastic that ruins the color scheme.

    Reply
  59. Still waiting for the phenex in rg. That is going to be a beauty

    Reply
  60. That phenex looks so majestic

    Reply
  61. Im kind of suprised they choose a crossbone for the initial wave of silloute frames. isusally the series doesnt seem to be too important to bandai with many of the coolest suits being pbandai.

    I hope they make more non pbandai releases so i can buy them on hlj!

    Reply
  62. nice to have the option to build the regular leo

    Reply
  63. Friends who don’t build Gunpla are still a good source of scratch build resources. I have them all saving bits and pieces of stuff for my builds.

    Reply
  64. I hope we see what the gunpla community do with the SD frames with older SD Gunpla Kits.
    I certainly like to modify older SEED kits with these!

  65. Another awesome review of Gundam Unicorn.
