  6. My favorite Youtube channel, which has been going strong for nearly ten years now, suddenly shut their doors. They were an odd beacon in the gaming industry, never hesitating to indulge in and express their affection for all the weird idiosyncrasies of the online community. They gave regular shout-outs to and made friends with everybody from fledgling content creators like Cranky Construct and 2Snacks (many of whom wound up surpassing them in popularity) to game developers like Swery65 and Hideki Kamiya (they’re largely credited with being the spark that brought about the Metal Wolf Chaos HD re-master) to smut artists like Zone and Norasuko. They were a singularly unique entity in the world of geek culture, and I’m sad to see them go their separate (but undoubtedly equally successful) ways.

    Anyway. That’s been on my mind the past couple days.

  8. hey, all the red frame review has no sound!!! is it meant to be that way? are you guys inventing a new review format? Charles Chaplin review! you should go all the way and do them in Black and white with piano music on the background.

  13. I like the HiRes Astray Red Frame. But at this price, I wait for the PG MG 1/100 Gundam Astray Red Dragon. Too bad that you don’t have Premium Bandai Kits.

    Reply
  14. Welcome back Lindsey <3
    Ultraman looks awesome, but it is still in MG price range because of LED unit. Yet still I want it some day.
    High-Res Astray Red Frame looks a lot better than I expected, but I just bought MG Kai version of this kit to assemble it at Christmas.

  16. Those figure-rise kits always amazes me and the Astray looks nice too.

  17. that is a good looking ultraman but I never understood the hi-rez line’s reason to exist

  18. boy the red frame looks beefy

  19. That Hi-Res ARF looks sick! Like the color combination, detail and that sword action.

  20. Merry Christmas! So much new stuff that my wallet can’t cope with! Love the new take on Iro… I mean Ultraman, manga’s really good! Looking forward to the anime! XD

  22. Great! Thank you ^_^

  23. I do wish someone design an Ultraman kit of the more traditional Ultraman designs. I grew up with Ultraman Tiga and would have loved to see him as a Figurise kit.

  24. Nice pg it look solid 🙂

  25. wow the Batman ninja kit looks so good but I wonder they baited it red and white instead of black and gray 😛

  26. Very nice Astray Red Frame indeed. Might buy one!
    I’ll pass on the 00 seven sword, until it appears on sale.
    Again a very nice review overall, thank you. Welcome back Lindsay!

  27. All I want for this holiday season is GUNDAM!

    Reply
  28. Wow, both the Ultraman and the Hi-Res Astray look phenomenal straight out of the box without any paint or panel lines. I love how different the Hi-Res Astray’s look and proportions are from the many other versions of the Astray in gunpla and action figure form.

  29. Astray is lit!

  37. for a thick boy, artray sure have a very good articulation.

  38. not like Todd, bulky gundam is not my taste. I’m more agile slim fast type gundam lover

  39. Oh the astray looks awesome!!

    Reply
  40. astray R is pretty cool

    Reply
  41. The HiRM Astray would be perfect if it has an titanium finish on it.

    Reply
  42. Mann i love this episode soo much realy exciting for both of the kits
    I hope i win someday.

    Reply
  43. As far as Hi Res kits go, that Astray doesn’t look very interesting. Other than being a bit bulkier, it doesn’t seem all that different from other Astrays. On the other hand that Ultraman looks brilliant.

    Reply
  44. I’m curious how Mobile Doll Sarah compares to the other Gunpla Girls, especially as it’s not a Figure-rise Standard like Nami. Release on HLJ you don’t seem to have grabbed include the Dijeh, Shining Break, VFG 31A Kairos, and Figure-rise Mechanics Haro. I’m wondering if any of Aoshima fixed any of their issues they had on their original Seigfried for the Kairos. I hope they did, ’cause no one likes messing up the catgirls.

  45. I’ve never been a fan of Ultraman but this one looks cool.

    Reply
  46. I really hope Bandai would have just put regular leds on the haro, they are really pushing that lewd unit

    Reply
  47. Speaking of the Red Frame’s sword, I found it both funny and sad that the older HG had a chrome blade, while the newer HG needed a chrome sticker. The new kit itself was better than the original, however. But, sadly…. the old chrome sword doesn’t fit in the hands of the newer HG. *let the sadness commence*

  48. Hope all you guy’s and girl’s have an awesome holidays incase there aren’t any GunplaTV vids by Christmas or New Year’s but here is hoping for some extra vids coming our way 😉👍

    Reply
  49. I really like Astray’s design. And that sword!

    Reply
  50. Hello, Hi resolution astray looks cool… but for that prize range.. i’d rather get a PG or a big MG ! I’m not a big fan of ultraman, but the new manga looks cool, and i like the led unit on this one ! But i can’t wait to take a look at the Pg 00 Gundam Seven Sword G…

    Reply
  51. The Astray is one of the best design to showcase how great gunpla is. the highly detailed frame is visible. WEith an RX 78 you build a complicated robot….and then put a very simplisitc anime armour on it.

    The astray shows of the best qualities of every line it was in. Especially rg and master grade

    Reply
  52. Building the PG over Christmas… is that a present or just work for you Todd?

    Reply
  53. Wow that PG looks huge, I hope to see some of the features it has.

  54. you guys work great together great vibes 👍

    Reply
  59. Love those extra kits especially the new p-bandai astray red dragon! omg !

  60. The Astray Hi-Res looks quite beefy , and the “Iron-man” Ultraman looks amazing, might get one of these kits in the future

    Reply
  61. I can’t wait to be here for the 1000th episode!!!

  62. Happy holidays to everyone at HLJ!

  65. What’s the turntable used in this episode? I’m looking for one that can do 3kg+

    Reply
  66. I must buy the lovely Sarah mobile doll, and the steroids astray

    Reply
  67. Great episode, was really surprised by how good the Ultraman looks straight out of the box. Have you seen the 1/6 Dimension Studio x Model Principle Ultraman? That looks pretty good too.

    Reply
  68. Need that Ultraman!

  69. 1 down, 99 more episodes to go for 400.

  72. How about twi wins in the row?

    Reply
  73. I love that next big plan is going to ep. 400!

    Reply
  74. The sale was such a surprise to my wallet that I will have to get the 7 Sword in the new year. meanwhile Royal Mail continues to stop every delivery to me then sends me a letter a week later about import tax, then I pay, then they send me my orders which should arrive next year so instead of building Gunpla this Christmas I am building the Lego Voltron / Go-Lions which looks fun.
    Happy Holidays Todd and all at H.L.J.

  75. Could I please have some store credit for Christmas?

    Reply
  76. I hoped to see the HARO built for this episode but that Red Frame looked so fine! I do wish the rest of the Astray manga would get published in North America.

    Reply
  77. I always miss the good deals this time of year. *sad panda*

    Reply
  78. alright, only 98 more episodes to go!

    Reply
  79. Although I love Gundam very much, it’s good to see Bandai is expanding their line up with kits other than Gundam (which has a Gundam flair to it)

    Reply
  80. Yo, nice episode. That Astray is just too thick for me 🙂

    Reply
  81. Really starting to love that PG Seven Sword, really looks killer.

    Reply
  82. Todd ,when you build the upcoming RE/100 LM111E02 Gun EZ for review, please show off its ful range of articulation (is it as articulated as the Mk III etc). And please also buld the old HG 1/100 LM111E03 Gun Blastor EZ (which is the suped’ up Gun EZ) to show how far the RE/100 has brought this particular mobile suit design into modern time from the old HG 1/100 kit. By the way, that was a very nice in-depth review of the Iron Man….Ulltraman figure. It can’t do the supherhero landing pose? Rather disappointing with it being so bendable. Also its head looks like it came straight out of GUNDAM F91, Karozo Ronah (looks at Bandai) to be exact. Anyhow, keep up the great show and tells you guys.

    Reply
  83. Good looking kits for this episode! Can someone tell me what’s the main difference between the MG and the Hi-Res? I really don’t want any finish, since i paint my kits anyway, and love to put the frame together too…
