Gunpla TV – Episode 290 – 00 Sky & Higher Than Sky!

What’s higher than sky? Well space you may think! But not in the world of Gundam Build Divers! We have not only the new HG Gundam 00 Sky but the new HG Gundam 00 Sky (Higher Than Sky) as well! What kind of ride would a Gundam named higher than sky ride around on? Bandai has that covered with a new Build Divers custom kit of a two wheeled motorcycle called the Machine Rider!

Kits in this episode:
HGBC Machine Rider
1/144 HGBD Gundam 00 Sky
1/144 HGBD Gundam 00 Sky (Higher Than Sky Phase)
MODEROID Six God Combination God Mars

  9. Man, this episode is full of comedy gold. Todd’s shirt that looks like it wants to blend with the posters on the background, the beam farts, that goofy bike and the falling into space meme. Great stuff.

  10. I’m half expecting a “gundam highest” to show up eventually

  11. I had the Chogokin Godmars when I was younger but my mother gave it away and now that I’m older I just couldn’t resist buying the moderoid version. The only thing is I had to get 2 so that I can display them in both forms together.

  15. Does Todd have a big collection of Hawaiian shirts?
    Now let’s hope that Bandai makes RG GN-0000DVR/A Gundam 00 Diver Ace and RG GN-0000DVR/S Gundam 00 Sky since Bandai can reuse the RG GN-0000+GNR-010 00 Raiser and RG ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam.
    So Lindsay is apparently the Meme Lord . Gotcha.

  16. Really looking forward to that bike, it has a lot of customisability, so there’s definitely a lot to work with to pull off some really epic builds.

    Reply
  17. Todd, please please PLEASE start covering the articulation again.

    It’s a minibike. Maybe Bandai will make a full-sized version, otherwise there’s the Meteor Hopper.

  18. another week. great

  19. Some nice looking kits, and the weird bike too.

    Reply
  20. Really wish both included the effects because I really don’t want to buy both just to get the effects for the standard version

    Reply
  21. Huh. That Higher Than Sky looks way better in person than it ever did in promo shots.

    still a terrible name tho 😛

    Reply
  22. I might get the HTS Sky just to give it to my little brother, all the effects, weapons and stand make it a good kit fot beginners

  23. New drinking game—everytime someone says “indeed” take a shot. 😁

  24. Just got my OO Sky today and was a very fun build, goes great with the other build diver kits I have

  25. Gunpla! Gunpla! Gunpla! Gunpla!

  26. I wonder if there are any plans for more mg origin kits

    Reply
  27. Just wondering would the cs sd gundam fit that bike. Would be great if they do

    Reply
  28. Personally, I prefer the 00 7 Swords/G to the Sky, but I do like those Destiny-ish weapons of the latter. Hope Bandai will release these as an option set.

    Reply
  29. My life won’t be complete until I see Todd riding that small bike he mentioned.

  30. Clear diarrhea… and far*… oops…
    A couple of quick off topic question…
    (1) Do those ceramic coffee filter work well? They don’t come with a holder to sit on top of the cup, do they?
    (2) Any known issue / trouble with shipping noodle cups or the new sweets to Canada?

    Reply
    • 1) The filters are surprisingly good! We were all pretty skeptical at the office so we had a taste test party, and everyone was pretty impressed by the difference. They don’t come with a holder, but there’s one for sale separately (https://hlj.com/product/LOC56011). Or you could use something you already have around the house.
      2) Not that we’ve heard!

      • Anna, thanks for your reply. Looks like I’ll have to spend some time in the food and snack section.

        Reply
  31. I wish the machine rider was closer to a full sized motorcycle, but I have to admit that it’s pretty amusing as a minibike.

    Reply
  32. Oh, that God Mars looks interesting! Definitely nice to see more of those Moderoid kits.

    Reply
  33. “Clear diarrhea.” – Todd

    Reply
  34. Interesting how Bandai release 2 very similar kits from the same line at the same time. Also interesting how Todd went for diarrhea before anything else XD!

  35. WE NEED MORE MEMES IN THE SHOW! CALL THE MEME LORD!

    Reply
  36. I like the 00Sky but just doesnt seem to have that much detail.. Maybe Bandai will release a MG 00Sky in the near future.

    Reply
  37. If I win a store credit “I” will be higher then sky.

    Reply
  38. I finally bought the O diver and I can’t believe there are so many versions of it now! AMAZING!

    Reply
  39. I’d like to see more Haro kits, like one of the evil Haro from Gundam 00 or the cat Haro with a tail from the Gundam 00F manga, or even the Harobe from Gundam Reconguista in G. Keep making Haros and maybe have them be a little bigger!?

  40. My sides, the shooting star meme, oh god.

    • The song is stuck in my head all over again.

  41. god mars lit looks awesome!

  42. The God Mars meme was great, looking forward to seeing the finished kit next week.

  43. The Higher than Sky effects parts are super cool but not I’m sure about the Rainbow Bright colour scheme that comes with it

    Reply
  44. I really like those effect parts.

    Reply
  45. The effect parts are pretty for the higher than sky “its called space, bandai XD” but I like the darker color of the normal kit more tbh.

    Reply
  46. I finished my 5th Build Divers HG Kit and personally find that the Build Fighters Series Kits had better quality and also have been better positioned on the gates to avoid the nub marks on the visible sides. Only the Momokapool was surprisingly good yet, and also fun to build. The AGE II Magnum is a complete builders fail and the 00 Sky Regular has also some great bad nub marks visible, when looking at your photos and videos. The Seravee Gundam Scheherazade comes up next on my list.

    @HLJ: What happened to the Tamiya Fine Nipper? It completely disappeared from your store a few weeks ago.

    Reply
    • Sorry, can’t seem to find a nipper with that name, even among past products. Was there a more specific name for it, or do you have an item code or anything?
      My guess, without checking though, would be that it’s no longer in production. When an item goes discontinued on our site, it’s hidden from our search results so as to not confuse anyone about availability.

      Reply
      • Looks like the nipper (Sharp Pointed Side Cutter / Nipper (for plastic)) is back again in stock: https://hlj.com/product/TAM74123

        Thanks for having taken a look. I was able to add it to my wishlist again.

  47. The Godmars design looks really old schoo and blocky. It makes me both love and hate it at the same time 😀

  58. bandai is cool but more kotobukiya kits please, megami device or more frame arms!!

  59. Mix and Build or Kit Bash, the terminology / meta message I prefer to utilise is mix ‘n’ build as kit bash hurts my ears now.

    Reply
  60. The color scheme is the best. Especially the baby blue is one of my favorite. I wish the would include more weapon to this kit.

    Reply
  61. So in “real life” if gundam is supposed to be a huge robot, then is that supposed to be a huge motorcycle to ride on huge highways?

    Reply
  62. Did I say that the term mix & build is preferable to kit bash, well it cant hurt to reiterate.
