  4. Holy cow I want that Astray No-Name. The Build Divers suits have me so excited. I can’t wait to see what else they have coming. Although I would love to have a model of that Tequila Gundam they had on the earlier part of the season.

  5. Those Cross Frames Silhouettes are very tempting! Might have to try one of them soon! Can’t wait to see the RG Sazabi when it come out!

  7. 46°C heat index is to high. Stay safe and drink lots of fluids.

  8. I’m looking forward to the SDBD Zeromaru from the Cross Silhouette line. I’ve always been a fan of the BB Legends / Senshi line, which tends to have better articulation and accessories than the more standard SDs.

    As far as Megami Device goes, the joints in Pretty Magical Girl look kind of gappy and strange. I could understand people getting it just for the effect parts — however I find Chaos Witch to be the more interesting of the two, as she comes with an AI hat and a variety of guns. So I ordered the Witch using my 2,000 yen store credit, so thanks guys!

  9. The HG XXXG-01S2龍虎狼 Gundam Jiyan Altron gives hope that we might get an HG XXXG-01S2 Altron Gundam; or ideally some more RGs from Wing EW .
    I’m waiting for the SDCS 00 series.

  10. Nice, thank you ^_^

  11. I’m really looking forward to that Astray No-Name. Apparently it’s been getting some flak from the fandom, but I think it’s a really nice-looking design.

  12. It hurts my soul when someone uses a hard M at the end of Gundam.

  13. Are you guys gonna review the new Figure-rise Naruto when it comes out? I’m pretty interested in that.

    Reply
  14. Heres hoping. This may help on shipping some things from the private warehouse.

    Reply
  15. I’m loving the new SD kits!! If I win I would use the free money to get that new Zaku!!

  16. Jiyan Altron is a give away that we will have an HGAC Altron in the future

    Plus the original Voltron is from japan, with the original name Beast King Golion

    Reply
  17. You see I’ve been through the desert with an Astray with no name~
    I am definitely getting two so I can make one with two capes, or maybe try to make it symetric, or maybe I will just give it to my gf, but I am definitely getting two.

  18. hellgatex likes big bulku mobile suits and for contrary I do not like them. Sazabi is just too bulky for me 😀 And one of my favourite mobile suit is 00 Qan[T]

  19. Jiyan’s got great kitbashing potential

  20. I’m disappointed in Bandai. The Jiyan Altron and the RX-Zeromaru were the only ones that I liked designs from Build Divers yet :/

    Reply
  21. The stickets on the Jiyan Altron make my inner lazy model builder scream in a panic, but i guess this model is another step in the journey to get all the Gundam Wing kits in high-grade scale, cant wait for the Heavyarms.
    ps. Im looking forward to next week to see the figurerise Kamen Rider Build, his current season has been one of the best in Rider history and i would love to see how the model compares to the s.h. figuarts version that i have :]

  22. Hello, I’ve been building only high grades until now for budget reasons mostly.. but it’s been a long time since i wanted to try RG’s and MG’s.. Now i just can’t wait to see that RG Sazabi… This is one of the Kits i’d love to get in the RG line with the Sinanju, ’cause I think HG versions (even if decent) don’t do justice to the design and details of this Mobile Suit (and because the MG line is a little bit too expensive for me..) I’m currently finishing painting my 1/144 HG Gundam Bael (and next ones will be the 1/144 HG Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Mina and the 1/144 HGUC NZ-666 Kshatriya ! Just need to wait for my 2 tones of metallic green spray cans…) and also i’m looking forward to get the RE\100 Gundam Vidar.. or maybe.. if a miracle occurs, i’d love to get my hand on the MG RX-121 TR-1 Hazel Custom.. these kits are of the ones that just looks so badass.. Would love to build and paint them !!

  23. The Astray No-Name is very cool. that transforming “cloak” is a cool figure. got to get it as soon as possible

  24. Altron looks awesome! Zaku too!

  25. That magical girl has one mean mug. Can’t wait to see who at HLJ you find to build it.

    Reply
  26. I already got the other Megami Device magical girl but sadly its currently stuck in the private warehouse of the site as i hade a item who was reaching its storage deadline before the kit was releaced. So it’s stuck there untill i can get some more money.

  32. A model kit Voltron sounds great to me.

  33. the new hg kits from build divers is pretty meh to eh for me…. but that altron kit may lead to future wing gundam show kits and at that point…..

    I got pull, I hope y’all ready
    My tank on full, you know, unleaded
    I gotta go get it, I gotta go get it

  34. I also think that the last Gunpla Builders series is too childish! So childish that grown up man cannot see it at all.
    I’m old…I know that..old enough to see the first Gundam on tv. But I always liked all the Gundam series. I admit I had a few problems with ZZ Gundam. I didn’t like Reconguista for the plot. I liked all the “builders” series because they are fun and full of referencies.
    But this last “Builders” series is stupid and boring.
    Bandai failed in creating new MS that are just “variations”. They don’t have a real “personality”! Even the main Gundam it almost identical to the original one. The only kit that has it’s own personality and style is the Astray No-name! It’s the only MS I could buy from the series.
    IMHO!

    • I agree with you there bro. I might not be as old as you, but I have see enough Gundams/shows/movies to concluded that Build Diver is just a mess. My primary issue is with the characters and narrative since it doesn’t feel organic. There is almost no growth with the main cast and the plot is weak at best. In life, when a group of people meet to conduct a certain task, the group will go through phases (Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing and Adjouring). When someone new get added into the mix, the cycle starts all over again. This is what I don’t see with the main cast. Everyone just fits a static role and everything works out. Heck, the only one I feel is a dynamic character is “Tsukasa Shiba”, the pilot of the Astray No-Name as he actually has a story arc and motivates. Like pilot and gundam, they have both personalities. Maybe he is on to something about the GBN being boring, lol.

  35. As an old Winger, I’m also hoping for a regular HG Altron release, though an MG (TV version) would be better.

  36. Got to love the Build Diver kits

  37. Hi, I’m interested in lighting up some 1/144 scale gundam kits. Is there an easy to use light up kit that you would recommend for beginners? How do you do it?

    Reply
  38. I hope we get that Altron released by the end of the year or at least early 2019!

  39. Those Cross Silhouette look like lot of fun, got save me up some cash, awesome show and Lindsay take care of your hands0

  40. Those Cross Silhouette look nice and I also can’t wait for more Wing Gundam kits in the RG line.

    Reply
  41. The one that I’m interested in is the megami device kit, it would be interesting to see you guys do a review on it.

    Reply
  42. These Cross Silhouette kits are very nice, love to build one.

    Reply
  43. I bet 2000yen that Bandai will make an MG Astray No Name. I mean… come on. The Astray is one of the most popular kits.

    Reply
  44. I’m hoping for more Gundam Wing kits – although I’m really after the Gundam Deathscythe – Shenlong and Altron are a bit weird, and we had a ton of martial arts gundam kits courtesy of Build Fighters/Divers. Also I’ve recently cosplayed as Duo Maxwell, Deathscythe’s pilot, so you could say I’m a bit of a fan, hahah.

    The Zaku looks pretty awesome! Might actually have to get it! As for the One Piece ship… yeah, sorry, I have no interest in it. Would probably buy it for the effects parts and sell the ship.

    Yeah, when you keep going back to referencing music from the 1970s, you just can’t hide how old your tastes are, Todd XD That song is definitely older than I am! Maybe you should stop listening to old music and finish building Gojulas the Ogre instead. How many years has it been since you started making that?

  46. I have always been obsessed with the Astrays, seeing the Seeing the Astray No-Name makes me even more excited to add it to my collection! Im also hoping to see more Wing kits in the making. It would be amazing to see Bandai release some HG Wing updates!

  56. A store credit will go a long way to save up for an RG Sazabi.

  57. next, lets get to rg sazabi please

  58. Hey gang, how many times can someone win the 2000zeni, and if it will impact the 2000¥ won before? Also I’m seeing a number of double posts and multiple postings from folk, hope that doesn’t impact other people winning the online store credit. With the Altron kit, I’m very much a Marvel fan and keep thinking people are saying Ultron! Haha. Great video as always chaps.

    Reply
  59. Just ordered my RG Sazabi from HLJ, been constantly refreshing the website until it came out of order stop and I’m glad it paid off. Maybe next time when I see something I want I’ll try to remember to pre-order and save myself the hassle.

  60. I seem to only like bigs kits this year and i havent seem those in stock at HLJ for ages ( Dendrobian & Nightingale) While I was waiting patiently for those never to restock I have however saved up enough for a Mechanicore kit.

  65. “It’s a GUNDAM!” I needed to say that to all the old Gundam Wingers out there. HG Altron Bandai, make it happen.
