Big Guns, Mecha Keroro, and an Arbalest that has been drinking Red Bull! This week Todd brings out his big guns with a look at something he has been dying to build for a while now: the Fujimi 1/200 Type 94 Yamato Main cannons. Also, we take a look at two other new Bandai kits: the 20th anniversary Keroro Robot kit and the new Full Metal Panic Arbalest now with the emergency deployment booster!
In this episode:
– Sgt. Frog Plamo Collection: Sergeant Keroro & Keroro Robot Mk-II – Anniversary Special Ver.
– 1/200 Battleship Yamato Type 94 46cm Triplex-Mount Main Gun Turret (See-Through Ver.)
– Yamato Kits
– 1/60 HG Arbalest Ver.IV (with Emergency Deployment Booster Ver.)
– MODEROID Shinkalion E5 Hayabusa
– Frame Arms Girl Sylphy (Striker)
– Frame Music Girl Hatsune Miku (Secondary Production)
I saw an episode once from the keroro anime, they where building an RX 78-2 megasize, it was funny 🙂
Hi guys! It is good that such models of the turret from the cruiser often appeared in the programs! Todd, tell me in secret, what date is in march will be on sale in the store mg dynamas?)
We don’t know about the Dynames yet, or we’d love to tell you 🙁 Hoping Bandai releases the information soon!
that green mean fighting machine
Great to have Keroro on the show! He’s such a great fit for this channel, what with his love for Gundam and Gunpla, hope to see more of him here! 😀
That eye swapping gimmick in the Sgt. Keroro is pretty neat.
Really liked the Keroro Gunso flying effects. 😀
I need me some Frame Arms Girsl! Aaaand for that, some store cred 😉
Gundam Frog? And not Ver.Ka?
Great Channel. Please continue!
wow the sergeant keroro kit actually looks pretty decent
Keroro ..a long time age.
the arbalest jus looks so darn cool
Like the Arbalest with that Aile Strike pack. ^_^/
Why don’t more games get kit versions? with the upcoming revision of FFVII what are the chances of some plamo?
Another game I would have liked to see in kit form was Horizon Zero Dawn, those Mecha looked like they had Gunpla parts.
Well that remake version of Final Fantasy VII will come out whenever it does.
There hasn’t been any info, leaks, etc at all for quite a while.
Horizon Zero Dawn plamo would be cool, but it’s not an anime/manga and the licensing rights might not make it worth it; especially given that Bandai’s licenses as is and product line ups as is are already vastly profitable.
Was the game even popular in Japan?
If it wasn’t popular then it’s not likely Bandai would even make plamo for it.
Yes your right, its just wishfull thinking on my part. While we awaite news on the remake their is the Switch release of VII on the 26th which I am considering and check out my media for my Chocobo Char concept which im building.
Was painting a kit as I watched this.
FaceGram. Now that’s a good idea!
I really like the Fullmetal Panic series and the Arbalest is a really cool design.
Fun fact, the arbalest is a type of crossbow.
I’m glad I picked up the Keroro kit as a birthday gift for a friend, looks awesome and I’m sure my friend will love it!
I recently ordered the Sergent Keroro set on HLJ. I was scrolling through the newly released section and stumbled upon that rediculous design and I just had to build it and display it on my shelf. Do you guys remember the Sergeant Frog fighting game that came out on the PS2 in Japan? It had a bunch of gundam items and weapons that you could pick up on the field. 😊
I’m curious about this Hatsune Miku
Great! Thank you ^_^
That Keroro kit is awesome. I like that it comes with the mecha and a figure.
Watched Keroro on Animax by the time I barely understood English.
That Yamato turret will probably look amazing after you slap some paint on it.
I’d like to get an Arbalest
PetitGguy Type 全不全
The more you promote the glorious merchandise of the Keroro Platoon, the closer they come to conquering us all!
That or the funds will just be funneled into buying more Gunpla.
The arbalest with this deployment booster looks pretty badass!
The new head on the Arbalest looks more like the one in the anime, old one is from the manga. Overall it looks like an amazing kit with very nice details. Would love to see if they also make the Codarl Arm Slaves
Arbalest looks cool. can’t wait to see the finish build
Sweet Arbalest model, though one that can really benefit from a nice paintjob.
Bandai does such a great job with mecha plamo even outside of gunpla. I hope they make a deal with Rooster Teeth to make plamo of the holons from ‘gen:LOCK!’
That turret looks amazing, it literally screams painting. Would make an excellent desktop piece.
Thicc boy*, best comment ever 🤣
I really like the Frame Arms Girls, but I wish they’d wear more than their underwear, I do find it embarrassing. Could always do with that discount though! Might help me put some proper clothes on them, lol.
Full metal panic was my first mecha anime. Fumoffu forever
You should watch Fullmetal Panic, Todd. You and your girlfriend would love. You for the mechs and fights, her for the romance and comedy. I love the franchise and love it since the early-2000’s….. Yeah, the series is that old.
I always hated that Keroro anime so I don’t understand why I like those robots so much. What is happenning to me?
Hey, can I win please
Todd, Do you know the difference between Bandai 30 minutes mission kits and HG gunplas? Would like to see an comparison between these two.
The Mecha Keroro looks like a lot of fun, but I got my eye on that Arbalest!
Brian ver. Kanada
The Arbalest has the best flight pack I have seen on a kit.
Hello, that arbalest with flight pack looks just great… The Yamato 18mm cannon turret looks awesome too. But, I also saw some of the Bandai 30 minutes mission kits… What is the difference with HG gunplas? Are they compatible for custom ? Because it looks just like they were made for it ! And the options packs looks good too.. Would like to see a Comparison with thr hg and/or a Review of those.. or maybe a “tutorial” about how they really do work…
i will add the arbalest into one of my backlog. My wallet is crying right now..
Give me a pick so I can order some more kits from HLJ. Also I really like the frog mecha with how it parodies Gundam.
That flight pack on the FMP kit, its a must get! Also the turret looks like a coffee cup of death.
What will be released in March???
I love how the comment section turned into what franchise bandai should make model kits for next.
I mostly want to see more mechanized digimon redesignes like they did with omnimon/omegamon.
That Sergeant Keroro gunpla is sooooo cute!!
That turret gave me ideas to pair it with some 1/6th scale stuff…
I saw the Keroro robo kits at C3AFA HK in real, they look like really fun kits!
So the Keroro kits is basically the same as the old ones, but combined with the characters in the box instead of being sold separately. I think instead of just remaking them, Bandai should have made a 2.0 Version.
Love watching but my wallet does not because of the massive backlog of kits I have to build but wants a few more
Another awesome review of Keroro. Thanks.
Looking forward to seeing those Kotobukiya kits.
Hi @Anna, sorry to bother you but I haven’t heard back from Todd or any member of HLJTV crew regarding winning the store credits since I found out back on episode 309 😖, is there anyway you could help me?? 🤔 maybe I missed something so that you guys could get in contact with me, please let me know or let Todd know I’m reaching out so that I can claim my price 😊…I’m still truly surprised I won 😱 and would like to make use of those points sometime soon 😍…thanks you along with the rest of team, keep up the good work 😉👍
Do you know if Bandai is going to re-release the other Keroro MKII units as the special anniversary editions too?
Preview picture is the best comparison I’ve ever seen
come on Todd! you call yourself a gundam fan and you dont know the lazy, gunpla building sgt. frog!
