Gunpla TV – Episode 289 – Mazinger Z!

Scott returns for an “A-Mazing-er” look at the brand-new Bandai 1/144 HG Mazinger Z from the latest Mazinger movie “Mazinger Z: Infinity”! The box art for the kit looks stunning, but just how does Scott feel about this kit itself in the plastic? You’ll need to watch to find out! Also, Todd dives in with the latest Build Diver release, the Zero Maru, as well as the latest Cross Silhouette Zeta!

In this episode:
1/144 HG Mazinger Z (Mazinger Z: Infinity Ver.)
SD Gundam Cross Silhouette Zeta Gundam
SDBD RX-Zero Maru
HGBC Machine Rider
1/144 HGBD Gundam 00 Sky

  4. Hahahaha… Nekonomics!! Didn’t even know it was a thing! I’m more of a dog person tbh, but I’d happily pick up a couple of Neko Busou figures! XD
    Love that Mazinger Z figure, beautiful detail, nice to see Scott again too! 😀

  5. The new Perfect Grade will be the Sazabi! (I wish…)😊

  6. I’m glad about the Zeromaru actually being able to stand on it’s own while also looking good, unlike the Star Winning Gundam 🙁

  8. I didn’t even know SD kits could have so many options. Stop tempting me with new items on every episode, guys.

  11. Mazinger looks nice overall but the panel lines seem a little too busy.

  12. You’re right about cats being huge in Japan. Hello Kitty just became an official virtual Youtuber over the weekend, and got 14,000 subs in one day (and the number is rising as we speak). I am not even kidding; Look it up. Lindsey might even like it.

  13. Cool to see that Scott showing up more on the show 😀
    As for the model kits, first the good: the Mazinger looks great, the amount of detail they packed into him is amazing and the transparent red bit on the chest alone makes me want to grab this kit, i might consider it in the future.
    Now the bad… RX-Zero Maru is just a poor showing from bandai, they did this idea with build fighters try and it did not work there either, i just wish they designed it as a HG first and then worked an SD transformation into it, it would most likely have a higher price point that way but we could also get a lot more colored plastic detail instead of the gigantic sticker sheet.
    As for the Zeta i have no real opinion, SDs are not rly my thing but i think it looks ok for a chibi gundam.

  17. Nobody let Don Fluffles get ahold of ANY ‘Neko Busou!’

  18. It will be helpful if you guys list the price tag for these kits right here in the videos. This Mazinger looks much cooler than it appearance in Super Robot Wars Games. And the new 00 Sky really makes me consider buying old kits like the HG Destiny. Do you restock old kits often?

    Reply
    • “Often” is subjective 😛 To be honest, it depends on the manufacturer. Since we’re mostly talking Bandai, I can say that Bandai usually reproduces kits that have been out of stock for a while… eventually. Depending on the kit it can take months, even, but they’re at least pretty reliable in that they *will* get to it at some point.

  19. If that perfect grade could be the Kshatriya or the Sinanju… or as Todd said the Sazabi… that would be just awesome !

  20. I’ve got 00 Sky (Higher than sky phase) in my Private Warehouse already and now I’m just waiting for Moon Gundam and restock of HG Barbatos Lupus Rex. And then sweet delivery

    Reply
  21. Please cover the Moon Gundam, really looking forward to it

    Reply
  22. Ordering loads for the upcoming December releases ,I can finally watch a full show without turning off…

    Scott really does make the show ,keep up the good work Todd and learn on hosting while you got the Boss Build on board..

    Please bring Boss Builds back and do some tool reviews.

  23. I want this Mazinger….

    Reply
  24. Ow sh**… I’m scared, but not surprised, with the amount of stickers that comes with the RX-Zeromaru. But it still does seem to be a good kit.

    Reply
  25. My 00 Sky (Higher than Sky Phase) needs to hurry up and get here! Really loving the look of that model kit.

    Reply
  26. If anything I would think it would be a PG Nu Gundam being announced alongside an RG reveal.

    Reply
  27. I just got the Cross Silhouette Gundam Crossbone with the Cross Silhouette frame and i have to say I love it. It is a quicker and fun build and gives you a few really fun features.

  28. the Mazinger showcase remind me of the falling to space meme XD XD XD
    good job amazing kit even really

    Reply
  29. Ah, I was hoping you’d do a clever animatic for the Zeromaru, that kit is so cool it even made Todd do stickers! XD

    Reply
    • I usually do the foils or anything that’s called out for in the instructions, its the optional marking stickers that I like to skip!

  30. Loved the new Mazinger movie, and the kit looks amazing

    Reply
  31. That new SD Zeta looks awesome!

    Reply
  32. I can not wait for new and interesting mg gunpla! Hopefully there will be a new Ver Ka of note soon! Perhaps a GP-01 Ver ka?!

    Reply
  33. The Zeromaru looks great despite all the stickers. I can imagine how much better it would look with paint, although I don’t enjoy thinking about all the masking tape needed.

  34. That Mazinger looks badass

    Reply
  35. zakuaurelius did a awesome haropla kit for korean GWC. You should check it out Todd.

    Reply
  36. thanks for the show. Can’t wait to get build the Magziner Z

    Reply
  37. The Zero Maru looks amazing, just love to get one. Have to done some heavy painting to replace the stickers.

    Reply
  38. Damn, didnt realise zeromaru have that much stickers. I hate applying stickers the most of all gunpla building task yet zeromaru is already in my warehouse. Guess it will make do as regift item then.

    Reply
  39. That review may have convinced me of getting that Mazinger kit! I can’t believe that SD kit can be converted into a HG kit. Bandai should release more kits like that!

    Reply
  40. the SD kit are getting way better

    Reply
  41. Thank you guys for the 2000 store credit and the random number generator for choosing me.
    Todd you were correct the first time with my name, col is just short for Colin not colonel and certainly not my Gunpla skill level.
    As to my comment being “deep”, that’s flattering but it was meant in good faith and I will include a picture of the struggle in my media.

  42. Omg that amount of sticker ! disaster. anyways when is the next major sales for HLJ

    Reply
  43. The detail on the Mazinger looks amazing for an HG, it looks on par with RG kits.

    Reply
  44. I hope the new PG is NU Gundam or Sazsbi.

    Reply
  45. Oh man I love that Mazinger Z! I need to get it, my only complain is it doesn’t have the spring rocket punch the older model kit had.

    Reply
  46. Gundam Wing PG? =D

    Reply
  47. I absolutely love this dynamic of showing gundam kits and some other series kits!
    I think the new PG will be a Sinanju, Bandai has to make it up for us after the RG and it’s problems, that one was my dream kit and bandai didn’t deliver, my second dream kit is a PG Sinanju
    I agree with Todd, a PG Sazabi would be awesome, but brutally expensive.

    Reply
  48. I’m sure people have already pointed it out, but apparently the new PG is going to be the 00 Seven Sword. Kind of a bland decision, I would have preferred a Quanta, but then again I rarely get PGs anyway, so… anyway, there you are. Just an FYI.

  49. The time will come to win these 2.000 Yen!

  50. Great episode, always refreshing to see non-Gundam kits from Bandai.

    Reply
  51. I am not a fan for the Build Diver anime so I really want the up coming movie, OVAs, and anything else to arrive all ready.

    Reply
  52. I never win this things but hey trying is free , love the mazinger but I got the metal build from you guys already

    Reply
  53. The great mazinger kits has much better surface detail then even alot of master grade kits.
    Did you paint the silver? or did bbandai finally figure out how to make metallic plastic 😀

    Reply
  54. The new Mazinger Z kit looks like the love child of the original version and The Thing from Fantastic 4. Love it. I wish the new PG was a Double Zeta to go with my PG Zeta but I don’t think I’ll get my hopes up. Keep up the great work guys.

  55. You’ve really outdone yourself with that Mazinger video, looks awesome.
