  1. According to the Gundam Wikia, the FD-03 Gustav Karl gets its name from the real-life Carl Gustaf anti-tank rocket launcher system.
    Can you guys please talk about the SDCS line up more often?

  2. Sergeant Keroro mecha plamo! It makes me sad ADV/Funimation have abandoned dubbing any more episodes after the 78th.

  17. Finding a Karl to build a Karl is impressive.
    Now you need to find a Keroro to build a Keroro.
    Or maybe there’s just someone out there called Plamo?

  18. Double Karl episode! Haha, nice to see a new face on the show, would love to see more guests building kits that match their names. Maybe an Alex building the classic RX-78 NT-1 Gundam Alex? 😉

  19. Honestly Karl should build more kits when he gets back to Sweden, he did an excellent job on the Gustav Karl!

  20. Perhaps we can hollow out Karl (the plastic one) and put another suit inside, like Gundam Virtue or the Dom and Build Burning Gundam.

  21. Shout out to size comparison, nice one

  22. I’m a big fan of big bulky designs that still pull off nice poses, so this Gustav Karl is right up my alley.

  24. Hi team
    What are your views on the Alita: Battle Angel movie?

    Reply
    • It was okay, actually! Lindsay and I went to see it opening weekend, and we both enjoyed it for the most part. Some of the acting was questionable, but the fights and the story were pretty good. I loved the original animated version back in high school so I was really reluctant to go see this one, but it wasn’t bad.

  26. Wow…I won 😳…I didn’t see that coming at all…sorry for the long post Todd 🙁, I didn’t think I would win but wanted to make a meaningful post with a follow up joke after all the last joke I made was read in the show too(episode 303) and it kinda reminded you of your broken leg and I felt bad about it 😱 eventhough it was just poking fun at the PG 00 Raiser 😋

    And yes the 727 has to do with the plane but also my birthday too ☺ so I guess Karl and I would get along having a love for airplanes and him liking GunPla too, the more friends in the hobby the better 😁…I will say Todd you might have made a lot of people a little upset in this episode but at least you were funny 🤣 LoL but in all honesty this show is an amazing portal for fans everywhere in this planet of ours…keep up the good work as always 😉👍
